YOUR IN MY THOUGHS AND PRAYERS
by: KAREN

Hello Jessica...just a few words of encouragement, your son is so lucky to have you.

Having survived Colitis, and 5 surgeries later, take it from me, please have the doctor do a colonoscopy on your son, just to rule out all the other posibilities.

He is so young, and he deserve to feel great, having cramps and diarrhea is not fun. I will keep both of you in my thoughts, and prayers.
Good luck Karen

Some Suggestions
by: Anonymous

My son has Chron's diesease and after 4 years we finally have it under control. If I were you, I would have his food sensitivities tested. This is not done by your doctor or a GI doc. I hired a Naturopathic Doctor who tested him and helped me tremendously with my son's diet.

But be patient. It takes a long time and it may be difficult to get your 11 year old to restrict his diet.

In the meantime, you could try peppermint pills and/or activated charcol for his pain. Can find these items at Whole Foods or Pharmica.

Reply to abdominal cramping and nausea

Dear Jessica,

This is really challenging to have a child who is hurting. This should not be experienced by anybody. I know that all you are thinking about is how to help your kid.

We could test your son for food allergies. We could test him for gluten sensitivity and we could test his stool for parasites, bacteria and other bugs. You should consider doing these tests to rule out these important issues.

The Functional medicine method that I practice is very simple to follow and many kids improve just from the diet change.

You can always call my office to make an appointment at 1-800-557-8039

I wish both of you lots of health and patience!!
