I grew up as a farm kid in Southwest Wisconsin. I have suffered from severe asthma, allergies, and digestive problems ever since I can remember. Every type of the following was used to control my symptoms: steroid inhalers, nasal sprays, allergy medications, emergency inhalers, and we still had to make regular trips to the ER for nebulizer treatments. My lungs were starving for air and would wake me up in the middle of the night. I would reach for my inhaler, on my nightstand, with the most intense migraine you could imagine. Ice, massage, ibuprofen, and my caring Mother was my regimen to get back to sleep. This continued for many years until I had my first chiropractor appointment. I was able to reduce my multiple inhalers and noticed less attacks too. It was a miracle!
Fast forward 5 years and I was doubled-over in extreme abdominal pain. An entire school quarter was missed while a gamut of tests was ordered such as: barium swallows, enemas, upper and lower GI scopes. All this agony resulted with no answers! I didn’t find any relief until I returned to the chiropractor and he suggested plain yogurt (probiotics) to possibly soothe my abdominal pain; it worked!
