Ari Meisel was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease.
Crohn’s is a chronic condition that causes inflammation of one's digestive tract. Symptoms are abdominal cramps, pain after eating, frequent diarrhea, weight loss, and a fever.
With the help of change in diet, yoga, natural supplements and exercise he's been able to stop the prescribed doctor's medication – and be deemed disease free!
He's now also an Ironman and Crossfit competitor!
