    Beth Coldrick: Crohn’s & Ulcerative Colitis Warrior and creator of BAO skincare (E69)

    Beth Coldrick: Crohn’s & Ulcerative Colitis Warrior and creator of BAO skincare (E69)

    In today’s episode, Beth Coldrick shares her journey of living with Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis for the past 11 years. Over the last two years, she’s had four major surgeries and is now living with a stoma, raising awareness for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), and sharing her story and experiences to help others.

    Although she struggled with symptoms for most of her life, it wasn’t until 2009 that she was finally diagnosed with both Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Despite being on daily medications and high-strength steroids, she suffered for another 10 years until her surgery in 2019 when most of her large bowel was removed and she was fitted with a stoma. 

    During that time, as her IBD worsened over the years, Beth had to make major changes to her lifestyle that included moving back home when flares were at their worst and changing careers–using both her skills and passion to launch her own organic vegan skincare brand in 2018. Since then, and after her original surgery in 2019, she’s had three more surgeries and has had her life transformed, thriving with a permanent stoma.

    Stephanie Gish solocast (E65)

    It’s been a while, but I’m back with another solocast episode of the podcast. I wanted to share a quick peek into what life has been like during the past year for me from working at home, my morning routine with Crohn’s, and balancing life and fitness with fatigue to my recent kidney biopsy. I plan to connect with more of my fellow IBD warriors and bring you all more podcast interviews to listen to, but until then, I hope you enjoy this quick solocast.

My favorite podcast

I absolutely love this podcast. I’ve been listening since 2018. Stephanie asks the most insightful questions to her guests that are helpful for the listener. She always stays on topic, she interesting to listen to and has a relaxing voice. I always get excited when I see there’s a new episode available. Thank you, Stephanie!

Great podcast

This is a great information podcast but unfortunately when you talk, we can’t hear the person being interviewed. So best to not say “mmhmm” or “yeah” or laughing since we can’t hear what they are saying. Keep the good interviews and stories coming!
