I am an author, advocate, wife and mother who has had extensive personal experience dealing with constipation and gastrointestinal issues because my husband has Crohn’s and my youngest son has Celiac and Megacolon. I am not a doctor or a medical professional. I am a woman who was determined to help my family.
I have spent many hours, in many GI’s offices and hospitals, and watched my husband and son get worse under the care they were being given, instead of better.
My son was put on Miralax at 4 for his chronic constipation and suffered horrible side effects from it including tics, anxiety, panic attacks, night terrors, mouth sores, slurred speech and delayed development. While on Miralax or shortly after going off of it, my son was diagnosed with autism, anxiety, Tourette’s and OCD. While his gut was damaged from the antibiotics he was given when he was 16 months old and contracted Salmonella, Miralax did a significant amount of damage to him.

After almost losing my husband from a botched gastro surgery that put him in the hospital for 6 weeks and on TPN nutrition for 6 months and my son’s multiple health and neurological issues from Miralax, I decided that there had to be a better way than toxic medicines and surgeries.
Under the care of an amazing Integrative Medicine doctor, we worked to find the root cause of my husband and my son’s health issues. We did a complete overhaul of our diet, worked on healing their intestines and repopulating their gut bacteria.
My son is thriving, healthy, on target developmentally and taking advanced classes. My husband had been told he would be on full disability after the botched surgery but he now he owns his own transmission shop and works 50+ hour weeks. We will never be able to undo the surgical damage he still struggles with, but he’s much healthier than he was on all of the medicines they had him on before I met him.
Seeing the huge improvements in my husband and son’s health with the changes we made, I decided to share what I had learned with other families who were struggling with constipation and gut issues. I have had the privilege to help thousands of families like mine to end their struggles with chronic constipation and undo the damage that it caused.
