Preparing For Healthy Pregnancy
Making healthy choices now can positively affect your future children.
We work with babies who have colic, stomach distress, vomiting, and failure to thrive. They often need nothing more than some good bacteria for their little digestive tracts, and perhaps the consideration of food allergies. We don’t usually need to test babies, although at times we test mom if she is nursing.
Children & Teens
We love working with kids! Sadly, our children are often sicker, at a younger age, than ever before in our history. Many of them have allergies, asthma, learning issues, skin problems, chronic colds and ear infections.
The overuse of antibiotics and vaccinations are a major underlying cause. So are nutritional, vitamin, and mineral deficiencies and very often, hidden digestive imbalances and infections. Children should not be on prescription medications for digestion, skin or attention issues. We can correct these issues holistically and restore them to their happy lighthearted selves!
Autism & ASD
Autism is a disorder of neural development characterized by impaired social interaction and communication, and by restricted and repetitive behaviors. One in every 110 children, or 1 percent of the population of U.S. children ages 3-17 have been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. This is a multi factorial problem, with a wide variety of often confusing interventions.
ADHD is a syndrome affecting children, adolescents, and adults characterized by short attention span, hyperactivity, and poor concentration. There are a wide range of possible learning disabilities from many possible causes. Assessing brain chemistry, hidden food allergies or toxicity and missing nutrients such as amino acids, vitamins or minerals, can often correct them. We can help your child do his/her best in school and at home, without drugs!
Natural Help for Baby’s ColicOur 3-month-old was put on prescription Zantac for reflux and severe colic. Within a week of starting the probiotic our son was sleeping through the night and his symptoms were much better, including his bowels. We were able to taper off the Zantac over the next month and he has been healthy ever since.

Multiple AllergiesMy son had many health issues the first two years of his life. After a few visits to the emergency room and multiple visits with pediatricians and specialists, my husband and I decided to visit BeWell. We discovered quickly what my intuition was telling me all along. My son had more severe food allergies and food sensitivities than we thought. BeWell helped guide us through the process of changing his diet and we started him on the recommended supplements and probiotics. Now three years later he is the healthiest one in our household. Life changing experience for us for sure and we are forever grateful!

Helping Kids through the StagesI have worked with Monica and her staff for over 8 years. My entire family has benefited greatly from our experience with her. Monica is a compassionate and knowledgeable professional. I first brought my son to her when he was 2 and suffering from a multitude of ailments. After one visit I saw his symptoms fade away within 3 days of following the diet and supplemental regimen she suggested. I have been hooked ever since. I could not recommend her more highly.

Help with Mood and Anxiety for Our ChildMy son is 12 years old and has struggled with health and mental well-being for several years. We attributed it to an autoimmune disease he was (mis)diagnosed with when he was in 3rd grade and after several years of significant ups and downs, we suspected Celiac Disease was the actual culprit. All of his symptoms were debilitating for him socially and academically. After more years of ups and downs and a lot of anxiety on our entire family, we were lucky enough to find BeWell Associates. My son has worked with Angie Wallace for about a year and found that along with gluten, he had other food allergies. Working through the food issues helped some, but it wasn’t until we addressed the nutrient deficiencies that we saw a complete change in him, for the better. He now is happy, focused, and even tempered. As a mother, I am ecstatic! As one who has worked with Angie myself and seen huge improvements in my own health, I am comforted in the consistency of kind and caring help provided by Angie and the whole office at BeWell Associates.

Child ADD / ADHDWithin a few days of starting his custom vitamin and mineral formula, that was based on his test results, our son’s anger and defiant behavior dropped significantly. Now that he’s back in school, teachers are pleased with his focus and cooperative spirit. We are so thankful that we found BeWell Associates in time for the new school year.

I Feel Like My 4-year-old Was Saved by MonicaI 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.

ADD/ADHD much improved digestion normalizedThe ADHD Children’s Program has helped our daughter be herself again. We had taken her to many other doctors, none of whom were able to find the root cause of her behavioral problems. BeWell helped us find and address the cause successfully using natural and easily accessible methods. I have recommended this program to friends who are looking for alternative answers to children’s behavioral issues, knowing that this is a program that truly shows results.

Painful Mouth Sores GoneThe chronic and very painful mouth sores that I have had since I was a teen are gone, thanks to BeWell’s nutritional program. And it happened the first month. I feel better overall, than I have in many years.

Painful Mouth SoresCaitlin is AMAZING! After thousands of dollars on skin care and multiple appointments with the dermatologist, we took our 16 year old to see Caitlin for a pretty severe acne problem. Because we didn’t want to go the Acutane route, we thought we would try a natural/holistic approach. After the initial blood work, Caitlin came up with a plan using a combination of diet and supplements. As of today, our daughter has a clear complexion AND is also thinking about decreasing her medications for depression/anxiety. BONUS!!!
What we thought was going to be a ‘let’s see if this works’ has actually been life altering!!!!! THANK YOU, CAITLIN :). (Her awesome personality was a plus – especially with teens).
