Notable Quotes from Patients

I Feel Like My 4-year-old Was Saved by Monica

I am so grateful to Monica for helping my 4-year-old son through so many health issues. For almost 2 years, my son suffered from: very loose bowel movements, breathing/wheezing issues, skin rashes and constant drooling. He was diagnosed with a learning delay and had trouble sitting still during learning sessions at daycare. On top of it all he wasn’t potty trained at 4 and wet himself frequently all day long. I took him to many doctors and specialists, and none were able to come up with an explanation or a cure for the many health problems he was having.

Monica got to the root of his gut issues and also discovered he has certain food allergies. In addition, she found out that he was deficient in certain vitamins crucial for the brain and learning. Monica told me what foods to eliminate from his diet, she put him on the appropriate probiotics and a custom vitamin blend based on testing. Within a short time, he stopped wetting himself, was potty trained, saving me so much money in the cost of diapers; his breathing issues and snoring stopped; his drooling stopped; his skin rashes stopped; his learning abilities greatly improved; he was able to sit still during learning activities; and his loose BMs stopped.

My son is a different child because of Monica. His daycare teachers were amazed at the turn around. I will be eternally grateful for how she helped him overcome so much.
