Hi, guys! Happy Monday! 🙂 So, we’ve had quite the rollercoaster ride in the Haupert household lately, especially with regard to our health. I’ll give you all of the highs and lows in a second, but, first, I wanted to share some fun stuff from our weekend! HIGH: Running with Quinn! Quinn and I took Murphy for a walk on Sunday morning. I was wearing pajama pants, a fleece pullover, and flip-flops. Quinn was decked…

Good morning! I wanted to share some of the self-healing, mind/body books I’ve been reading lately. They’re all a little bit different and have really great information in the them. Let’s start with my favorite book… Brave New Medicine by Cynthia Li, MD This book was life-changing for me! I got an advanced copy from the author, but you can find it on Amazon. It’s written by a traditional western medicine doctor who is diagnosed…

Well, guys, this post is quite the random mix of topics: Qigong, walkie talkies, air fryer Parmesan-crusted salmon, and books about mind-body healing. How’s THAT for variety? Haha! I really think this is the most random blog post on CNC to date! 🙂 And I would love to hear which topic you found most interesting. Please leave a comment below with your thoughts! I tried Qigong for the first time yesterday. I just finished a…

Soooo, anxiety has been kicking my butt lately, and it’s so frustrating. What’s even worse is that I have no idea why it’s plaguing me right now – it basically came out of nowhere. It could be related to everything going on in my gut right now. (Mind and body, especially the gut, are highly connected AND vice versa.) But I was in a flare for 5+ years and never felt like this, so I…

Happy anniversary to us! 🙂 Today is our 11th wedding anniversary, and we’re planning to celebrate on our family vacation this evening. Thankfully, Club Med has group babysitting in the evening, so Mal and I will get to have a proper date night to celebrate #11! And, of course, I’ll be sure to have a full wedding anniversary recap when we get home! Speaking of anniversaries… The early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicks off today!…

We’re off to Florida this morning, so I figured it would be the perfect time to share this blog post with tips for surviving an elimination diet on vacation. Not that I’m doing any sort of elimination diet right now, BUT I know them all too well. I have taken many trips away when I had a restricted diet, and it’s not all that enjoyable. Of course, the thought of having to give up some…

One of the most common questions I receive from IBD patients is how long does it take for Entyvio to work? And, really, it depends on the person and their disease. Obviously, I’m not a doctor, but I’m more than happy to share my experience with Entyvio and ulcerative colitis. I started Entyvio after I failed Remicade. Actually, it never really worked for me. I went to the hospital every 8 weeks for Remicade infusions…

Hi, friends! I was on the “Pounds This” podcast a few weeks ago, and I wanted to share my interview with you guys. Amanda (the host) and I chatted about how getting fit for my wedding led to changing my life and starting Carrots ‘N’ Cake. We also discuss how to live a flexible lifestyle with macros and how I stay healthy while living with ulcerative colitis. I hope you decide to give it a listen. You…

I’ve partnered with the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) to bring you this blog post. Read on to learn more about a new resource that was just launched to help women navigate IBD and pregnancy. I think all of us moms can agree that motherhood (especially new motherhood) can be one of the craziest rollercoaster rides that we’ll ever experience. While it’s a time of true joy as you bring your little one into this world and…

My experience at Zen Den over the past few months has truly been life-changing, and I’m not just saying this to be dramatic or exaggerate. What I’ve experienced in the Pain Management Clinic is nothing short of remarkable. I also like to say it’s “crazy” because the therapies used are like nothing I have ever experienced with any doctor, physical therapist, or practitioner before – and you guys know how many of these kinds of…

I’ve partnered with the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) to bring you this blog post. Read on to learn more about a new resource that was just launched to help women navigate IBD and pregnancy. At the end of my pregnancy, I started to have a few flare symptoms related to my ulcerative colitis diagnosis. They were fairly minor to start, but got worse and worse as the weeks progressed. My GI doctor put me on a…

I’ve partnered with the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) to bring you this blog post. Read on to learn more about a new resource that was just launched today to help women navigate IBD and pregnancy. Until my early 30s, I wasn’t really a “kid person.” I never really played with dolls as a kid. I didn’t babysit younger siblings or cousins. And, honestly, I had very little interest in other people’s kids. When Mal and I…

Hi, friends! I’m so excited to share this video with you. As you know, I love talking about all things hormones! 🙂 As you might remember, I’ve had some wacky hormone stuff going on since Quinn was born nearly 4.5 years ago. I’ve worked with Kristin from Thrive by Food for several months now, and she suggested the DUTCH test to figure out what was going on with my hormones. DUTCH stands for Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive…
