Amber is a 36-year-old African American woman who joined Gritwell in 2020. For over 15 years, Amber had suffered from severe digestive issues. She also struggled with chronic nasal congestion, skin flushing, insomnia, and debilitating fatigue. Her quality of life was severely impacted by having to manage her daily symptoms. She reported significant stress in her daily life associated with balancing her family’s needs with her work, existing on a tight budget, all while struggling with her health, which she felt was progressively deteriorating.
Prior to joining Gritwell, Amber had tried elimination diets and identified sensitivities to gluten, cruciferous foods, sausages, chicken, and alcohol. She was taking Claritin daily and multiple supplements including probiotics, a B50 complex, zinc, L-glutamine, collagen, vitamin D3, and vitamin C but still struggling with daily inflammation.
When she started with Gritwell, her personal goals included decreasing her digestive issues and reducing her histamine issues - particularly skin flushing and nasal congestion.
