In this episode, I chat to the wonderful Ali Jawad about his experiences of managing Crohn's Disease as a Powerlifting Paralympic Athlete. We discuss things from his childhood & discovering sport, to his Crohn's Disease diagnosis, mindset & resilience to Ali's future plans including treatment trials and research.
Ali is a beacon of empowerment for us all particularly when it comes to overcoming adversity & striving for change.
*Please note, Ali is speaking from experience and this is not generalised medical advice. Always seek your own personalised medical advice & treatment plan*
