Crystal Saltrelli’s world was turned upside down at age 23 when she was diagnosed with a complicated gastrointestinal disease called Gastroparesis. Gastroparesis is a condition that reduces the ability of the stomach to empty its contents. Few strategies and diet plans are available for patients, who often present with multiple chronic or rare diseases.
After learning the ropes through her own experience as well as returning to school to become a certified health coach, Saltrelli authored two books on both eating and living well with the often confusing disease.
Global Genes was able to sit down with Saltrelli to discuss the condition and her advice for living well and eating well.
