I have struggled with a lazy bowel since I was 6 years old. I would go two to three days without a bowel movement. In my 30’s it wasn’t unusual to go 3 or 4 days without one. Over the years I went to several doctors and specialists. Initially they tried to convince me it was “normal: To go 2-3 days without a bowel movement. Later, they simply said they couldn’t find anything wrong with me and I needed to improve my diet and increase my exercise.
I tried everything but eventually it got to the point it would be 5, 6, even 7 days before I would have one. No matter what laxatives I took or what I ate. My husband to be (when I finally told him) made an appointment for me with Dr. Rusty which changed my life. Two weeks after I started treatments I was having a BM once a day. I have more energy and overall felt better that I had in years. I recently looked at a picture taken 2 days before my wedding (5 months ago). I was shocked to see how vacant looking my eyes was. Now, I have a sparkle in my eyes and feel wonderful. I have enough energy to enjoy my life and look forward to what is in my future. I am grateful to Dr. Rusty and the care she puts into helping her patients.
