I know this because when my second child was born I was completely caught off guard when he developed extreme eczema, his poop was really sour-smelling and sometimes full of mucus.
He couldn't sleep, was extremely uncomfortable, and our lives were a total mess.
I took him to see every kind of doctor and was always told "he is perfectly healthy!" or "here, this steroid cream will heal him right up" or "this must be a reaction to your breastmilk" or "Yep! This is a solid case of colic, don't worry. It’s normal, just wait it out.”
I felt lost and alone. These healthcare professionals who were supposed to help me never even took a second to unearth the root of my baby's symptoms. And his symptoms were worsening right before my eyes…
There’s nothing in the world I wouldn’t do for my family.
So even feeling frustrated, exhausted and overwhelmed, I was determined and went on a 2.5 year quest to find the root cause of all of my child's symptoms. It’s even one of the reasons I became a certified family health coach, so I can help other families who are struggling the way mine was.
