A note about IBS
IBS or irritable bowel syndrome is a very common diagnosis these days. But is it really a diagnosis? At BeWell, we consider it simply a description of the condition, with no insight about the cause.
People already know that their bowels are irritated, often manifesting as a combination of diarrhea and constipation. What they need is an understanding of why their bowels are so cantankerous.
Let’s take a look at some of the most common possible causes of IBS:
- SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth
- SIFO or small intestinal fungal overgrowth
- low stomach acid
- food allergies other than celiac
- celiac disease or severe gluten allergy
- chronic dehydration
- low fiber diet
- overuse of antibiotics
- low gut flora
- not creating the time to empty the bowels
- chronic back tension
As with all digestive health issues, determining the root cause is the first step to healing. Through comprehensive health histories and, when necessary, functional testing, we can determine the cause of your symptoms and set you on the road to healthy digestion.
Client Success Stories
Chronic Constipation Overcome other perks as wellYou wouldn’t believe how grateful I am that I’m eliminating easily every day. Constipation has been a lifelong struggle for me and now it’s over. Thank you so much! I’m also sleeping more soundly and most of the back and neck pain are gone and joints are much better as well. I really appreciate your targeted approach based on testing. I now realize I was taking all the wrong supplements. You’ve made me into a firm believer in functional testing.

Increased Energy & No More RefluxIn 3 months on Monica’s program I’ve lost 30 pounds, my cholesterol went down 33 points, my triglycerides 112 points, and my good cholesterol went up 5. My blood sugar came down 17 points. I have decreased both my medications by half and plan to keep going. I have much more energy, no reflux (and have stopped my reflux meds), and I am walking without knee pain. I still have a ways to go and exercise has been really important to my program, but I’m happy with my results.”

Barrett’s Esophagus completely goneI just wanted to let you know that I had my endoscopy and my Barrett’s disease is completely gone. After suffering with reflux and being on Prilosec and other PPIs for 17 years, I’m off my medication and my esophagus is completely healed. Thanks again, Monica. You are the best.

Ulcerative Colitis: Symptom Free without medsI have had ulcerative colitis for 30 years with occasional flares. The doctors prescribed medicines over the years that would work for a while along with my own efforts in adjusting my diet as best I knew how. After the most recent flare I had, I was scheduled for another colonoscopy. At that point the gastro doctor said that my only option was to take biologic shots for the rest of my life or have my colon removed. I decided to search other natural avenues which lead me to Monica at BeWell. After she reviewed my case, she started me on supplements, and advised me on dietary changes. A week later I was back to normal and feeling great. These people know what they are doing and I couldn’t be happier! Thanks again, Monica.

Testing Reveals Simple Path To Feeling Better Than EverMost of my life I have had issues with eating. I would get sick and struggled with IBS and constipation. And the beginning of this year in January I got really sick. I had severe joint pain, anxiety, exhaustion, and had no energy, and I was losing weight due to anxiety. I had bad eating habits. I had been to the doctors and had bloodwork, and everything came back ok, and they said it was anxiety. But I still felt awful, and knew it was more than anxiety. A friend of mine told me about BeWell. I took the TRIAD test, and we found out I had some severe food sensitivities, leaky gut, and just needed some good nutrition. I changed my eating habits and got on some good supplements and within the first 2 weeks, I started to feel better! And now 2 months, in I don’t think I’ve ever felt as good as I do now. I’m thankful for all the ladies at BeWell they are so kind and always helpful they’ve been a huge blessing to me and my family! Highly recommend BeWell Associates!

After 1 Month I Feel AmazingAlmost immediately after starting Monica’s plan my terrible gas, burping, bloating, and nausea stopped. I’d gotten to the point that I was afraid to eat because of the pain. I’m no longer constipated and stopped using the Miralax that I’ve taken for years. Very quickly the weakness and dizziness I felt almost daily also disappeared. I can honestly say that after a month I feel amazing and I only wish I’d made this appointment sooner!”

Amazing Gastrointestinal ResultsI just wanted to let you know that I feel amazing. Sleeping great, energy up, clear skin, no gastrointestinal issues at all! At this point, I’m completely symptom-free. The Gastromend definitely helped and I’m still doing the Beta TCP, Betaine (sometimes), and Digestzymes with meals. NAC twice a day and also my Two Per Day. It’s definitely a perfect routine for me. I just wanted to let you know what’s going on and to thank you for helping me get my life back. You have no idea what it means to me. Thanks for EVERYTHING! (:

Improved Digestion Almost ImmediatelyMy digestive system was slow for months and I’d been vomiting more and pooping less. I ended up in the ER for nausea, vomiting, severe constipation, and stomach pain. The doctors didn’t know what to do with me, but your suggestions helped immediately. I am so grateful. Thanks so much!

Less Gas Better Bowel MovementsI continue to be really impressed with the improvements with my well-being using this program you have me on. I’ve experienced less gas, more formed stools, less reflux, and less eczema. I’m blown away by the good things these supplements are doing. Thanks, BeWell.

Reduced Leg Cramps and Acid RefluxI had been suffering from debilitating leg cramps in my thighs for several years, so severe that they would reduce me to tears and immobility. The cramps were taking over my life and I did not know when or if they would happen. I became afraid to leave my house. My
family doctor had no answers, even after he did bloodwork which showed normal potassium and magnesium etc. I drank Gatorade by the boatload……took 2000+ mg Magnesium and Potassium supplements……I even resorted to drinking Pedialyte trying to get enough of what I knew I needed. One day my chiropractor recommended Monica Montag, CN at BeWell Associates. She had been able to help his little girl with her many skin issues. I was a little leery but willing to try anything to stop the pain and be able to live a normal life. At the first meeting, Monica discussed what she thought was going on……ordered in-depth blood work that would get to the bottom of my problems. I was skeptical about the whole process but after listening to the nine-plus pages of test results I was a believer. We came to find out that a hidden infection in my intestines was preventing me from absorbing magnesium. After four months of seeing Monica, I am down to only a handful of cramps. That is such a blessing in my life. Other benefits: I’m off my blood pressure medicine…..and the acid reflux meds that I have been on for almost 30 years and I’ve lost 55 pounds! I could go on and on about what help they have been but do not have the time or space to do it. If you are having problems that mainstream medicine just kind of pushes away…..let these women give it a shot. I am so thankful that I have. I can’t wait to see where this leads. Thanks so much, Monica…..you literally didn’t save my life……but you certainly saved my mind!

We Get to the Root CausesI am happy to share my experience with BeWell. I was having GI problems, insomnia, and chronic UTI/kidney issues along with a full-blown case of menopause/hormonal imbalances. Family doctor and urologist couldn’t/didn’t help me. However, with updated labs obtained through BeWell, along with their guidance with supplements and diet, I have been able to share my results with my OBGYN and together they came up with a plan to help me get back to me! If you feel like you’re not being heard or helped, I would highly recommend BeWell and their services.
