Episode Notes

In this episode, Nurse Practitioner Danielle Brunk shares her journey with Crohn’s Disease and how she took her diagnosis and turned it into something positive. She teaches others about battling a chronic illness and not to let it define you. Let it give you an improved identity - one that starts with improving your internal and external health.

Danielle first noticed symptoms of Crohn’s Disease coming back from a vacation. She experienced abdominal pain that eventually got so bad she needed to be carried into the emergency room. She was officially diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease and was told there wasn't much she could do about it conventionally.

She shares that it was a wake-up call. No longer was she going to simply drift through life as an active participant in a daily routine. She was going to focus on the root cause of her illness and make changes.

This was the start of her coaching business Third River Health. While still practicing conventional medicine she took the opportunity to teach her patients and others about mind, body and emotional healing and counsels people to find the “why” in their illness. Why you should work for better health.
