Welcome to Now and Today Wellness!
Our journey started several years ago, after our second daughter started suffering from itchy rashes all over her body – on her ankles, behind her knees, below her buttocks, on her wrists, and elbows. She also had very rosy cheeks and was frequently constipated.
In addition to these physical symptoms, she exhibited abnormal behaviors, including moodiness, frequent outbursts, not giving or seeking affection, and not wanting to be touched. To make matters worse, she was also up every night scratching, crying, and screaming – unable to sleep with all the discomfort.
As parents, this was heartbreaking to witness, so we sought help the same way most parents do – by making an appointment at our local clinic. The doctor we met with ordered a skin-prick test, diagnosed her with eczema and prescribed a corticosteroid cream and an antihistamine to treat her symptoms. We asked if our daughter’s symptoms could be related to diet. The doctor’s response was that unless it showed up on the skin-prick test, diet was not of concern.
With Trigg being a pharmacist, we knew the prescriptions had the very real possibility of adverse effects, especially when used for long periods of time. Therefore, we desperately wanted to discover and address the root cause of our daughter’s suffering, instead of merely treating symptoms. When the doctor essentially dismissed diet as a possible factor, we realized we would have to figure things out on our own.
Through seemingly countless hours of research, we started making connections between diet and a host of health conditions – many of which had symptoms that appeared unrelated to what a person ate. In addition, we became aware of how certain supplements could be used to help restore and support the body’s proper function. Armed with this knowledge, we adopted a new dietary lifestyle and began targeted supplementation. Slowly but surely our daughter’s symptoms started to resolve. These days, we are happy to report the rashes, constipation, sleepless nights, and abnormal behaviors are all things of the past.
What started as a mission to help our daughter has become a passion to help all those whom “mainstream” medicine has failed. Please know there is another way – a natural, drug-free way that promotes your body’s own ability to heal itself when given the proper support.
So, what are you waiting for?
