I was given a (free) advanced copy of the book: The Complete Guide to Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis: A Roadmap to Longterm Healing by Alexa Federico, NTP in exchange for a review.

I was really excited to get a sneak peak of this book because I’ve actually been following the Girl In Healing blog for a while now. Alexa Federico is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with Crohn’s disease. She posts helpful things like tips for living with IBD and tasty treats. Because of experiences with other resources, I wasn’t sure of what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised when I found no medical advice, rather helpful information. – Things that can be especially helpful for someone newly diagnosed and uncertain on where to start. Throughout the book Alexa stresses how individualized each case of Inflammatory Bowel Disease is and I definitely appreciated this. I like that she shared advice from a personal and professional perspective. I love how honest and informative this book is and overall support Alexa in her mission to raise awareness and provide support for Crohn’s and Colitis patients.


I’d like to thank Alexa for sharing her knowledge and expertise. It’s nice to have a go-to guide for IBD that shares valuable information while still acknowledging the importance of knowing there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to this condition.

Though mostly about IBD, this blog covers a wide array of issues.  Shawn covers complex issues, like how her identity as an African American intersects with her IBD.  I am taken aback by the depth of each post! Whether you’re a blogger or an IBDer, her posts are sure to offer tons of inspiration.
