Specialising in helping Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis sufferers to live a happy, confident life on their own terms, not one dictated by their disease.
Hi, I’m Greg Williams. I have been happily married for several years now. My wife, Donna, has Ulcerative Colitis.
For a long time, both before I met her and afterwards, Donna struggled badly with her health.
She was extremely fatigued, in a lot of pain, and was visiting the toilet (urgently) several times a day.
At the time, I was a nutritionist mainly helping people who wanted to burn fat or build muscle. She ate ok but I would try and give her some advice as to changes she could try making to her diet, to see if it helped. However, she would never really follow any of my advice because she simply didn’t really think it would help. Doctors had told her pretty much nothing could be done and so she believed them.
However, I didn’t accept that. I knew that something must have been causing her symptoms and so we needed to get to what that was. It was clear that what she was already doing wasn’t working because she was suffering so much.
My wife and I eventually decided to take greater action after a particularly bad flare and a horrendous case of shingles, which the doctor told her she had got because of the immune system suppressing drugs she was on. She knew she couldn’t continue to live like that.
Cutting a long story short, after a huge amount of work, study, interviews, etc, I eventually developed a step by step approach (my “5 Phase Thrive”) that helped her to feel HUGE amount better. The frequent bowel movements went away, the pain went away and she had so much more energy. Even her skin and hair condition improved dramatically. Over time, she was even able to eliminate her medication (with the ok from her doctor).
There were plenty of bumps along the way and it took a lot of study and experimentation but we have achieved what many people would tell you isn’t possible, and she now lives life on her terms, not dictated by her UC.
We also now have a beautiful daughter, something we never felt Donna would be well enough for!
Over time, these steps help people to feel happy and confident with their body once again. To dramatically increase their energy levels, reduce their pain, and live a normal life on their terms, not one dictated by their health.

There is a better way, and it’s my mission to show you how.
