At the young age of 23 years old, Virginia was terminally ill and given little chance of surviving the medical diagnosis of Crohn’s disease and Takayasu Ateritis. Doctors recommended surgery and steroids. Ginny rejected these harsh temporary remedies that were not helping. After suffering a stroke, she was depressed and bedridden. She not only had the manifestation of the two diseases but also had to contend with the strong side effects from the medicines.
In her desperate search, she learned about a nutritional plan called macrobiotics. After adopting an eating program of whole foods and learning to change her lifestyle according to her body’s needs, Ginny was symptom free within months. This relief came after seven years of suffering the painful symptoms of digestive inflammation and with multiple hospital visits. The healing experience brought her knowledge about the workings of her body and the understanding between food and health. Her complete recovery not only gave her complete relief from her illness, but also the benefit of a life full of energy and vitality. She noticed that as her health was restored, her body also became flexible and youthful in appearance.
Following 28 years of glowing health, she has shared her knowledge of healing practices that sustain lifelong health. For the last 15 years Ginny has consulted with clients all over the world. Her focus is educating people – young and old – on all aspects of Intestinal Bowel Disease. Her expertise is in facilitating healing of the digestive tract at whatever stage or condition it is in. Macrobiotic principles compliment medical treatment and are compatible with all religions and cultures.
Recognized as one of the leading macrobiotic counselors, GInny is the author of the book Controlling Crohn’s Disease the Natural Way, now in its third edition. She resides in Franklin, Tennessee and often counsels in Europe through the SHA Center for Health in Alicante, Spain.
