This Week: Swallowing 101: achalasia
Imagine you ate a meal but instead of the food doing what it normally would do (travel through the entire digestive system) it just became stuck within your non working esophagus. As if your body was trying to mimic an emperor penguin by storing food for your baby. Except when you inevitably regurgitate your food, there is no baby penguin to receive it... because your a human woman. This is Kelsey's life. She suffers from Achalasia.

Who is Sickboy Podcast?
Sickboy Podcast is hilarious, ridiculously insightful and absolutely determined to break down the stigma associated with illness and disease! The show started with three best friends who recognized that when faced with difficult situations, illnesses and diseases, people tighten up, they get awkward, and they simply don't know what to say. Taking the lead from Jeremie's life long battle with Cystic Fibrosis, the boys help people understand that sometimes the best way to deal with illness, disease and life is simply to laugh. Join the conversation every Monday over on iTunes, Soundcloud, Google Play or wherever you get your podcast fixin's
Brian was born and raised in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, but has spent the last five years working abroad and travelling the world. His passions include adventure, being a do good'er, and making sweet love to his beautiful girlfriend, Chelsea.
Jeremie is a multi award winning professional actor and yoga instructor who happens to live with a genetic lung disease called Cystic Fibrosis. He is an advocate for grabbing life by the balls and never letting go. He is married to a super babe of a wife named Bryde, and they own a big goofy dog named Bigby.
Taylor is a thrill seeking, adventure and travel loving human. If he's not snowboarding or hanging around Jeremie and Brian, he's running yoga studios with his life long lover Kyla. Or playing video games...with Jeremie and/or Brian
