In this episode of Sauerkraut & Dumplings we get into gut health and the Happy Nerve with Kelly Owens, a Crohn’s Disease Warrior.
Kelly recently uprooted her life to move to Amsterdam for 6 months to be apart of a clinical research trial in bioelectronic medicine, a cutting edge innovation in battling all sorts of inflammatory diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Crohn’s Disease, and possibly even Alzheimers, Dementia, and beyond.
With Inflammatory Bowel Diseases which include Crohn’s Disease topping a whopping 1.6 Millions Americans, and current practices not having a cure for these chronic life-long conditions, the research being done is quite literally life changing and saving and has the capacity to completely change medicine as we know it.
Kelly takes us on a journey on what life is like with Crohn’s Disease and what her Happy Nerve, the Vagus Nerve, has to do with giving her a completely new lease on life and brining her back from the edge of death.
With her bright and upbeat attitude, its hard to imagine that she ever went through any hardships, let alone lived in an 80 year old woman’s body for most of her life, missing out on a lot of things we take for granted.
Be prepared to be inspired, informed, and motivated by Kelly and the magical nerve that you too can harness and reap the amazing regenerative powers from.
About Kelly Owens:
Kelly graduated from Centenary College of New Jersey in 2012 earning a degree in English Literature and Secondary Education.

As a person that has battled Crohn’s Disease for 17 years, she ended up in Amsterdam in 2017 to get a revolutionary new device called a Vagus Nerve Stimulator that put her into remission for the first time in her life. She is now an advocate for bioelectronic medicine to cure or treat diseases.
She lives in New Jersey with her husband and their two very big and very goofy dogs.
