I'm Here to help
If your goal is to start pooping on a daily basis and feeling like a queen...I might just have the trick for you!
My number one step and trick with my clients is to always identify the root cause of their symptoms. I do this by using in-depth assessments and a GI MAP stool test to gain clarity on the underlying cause of their constipation symptoms. This information then helps me create an informed and individualized wellness protocol.
My clients' protocols incorporate nutrition, lifestyle and supplements all aimed directly at the root cause of their constipation (ex. kill off the bad gut bugs and heal the gut). I provide continuous support throughout their health journey to ensure we are going to defeat that constipation for good!!
The next step
Well, it's up to you...are you ready to finally poop daily and feel damn good about it?
