My Health Journey - Part 2 (GI)

Ok, so when we left off (if you're reading these in order) I was pretty distraught. Alotta problems. No real answers. Here are the other parts to this wonderful series of the decline of my health: My Health Journey - Part 1 (Overview)  // My Health Journey - Part 3 (Adrenals) // My Health Journey - Part 4 (Thyroid).
