Our family has had many years of ups and downs with lots of medical issues. I have suffered from thyroid problems for over 20 years, JR has developed allergies and many aches and pains over the years and our daughter has had over 2 years of unexplained pain and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia at age 14. We have been to doctor after doctor to try to figure out how best to treat all of us. We have been called crazy (not in a good way), we have been told we were imagining things or that we were making things up. We accumulated bags of medicines that just never worked or had tons of side effects. Finally, when we had had enough and knew we were going to have to take things into our own hands, we started looking for natural approaches to help manage our conditions.
