“I had had chronic constipation since college, sometimes I would go for weeks at a time without a good movement. I also had candida, bloating, sore legs, and susceptibility to lots of flu’s and colds. I was also 20 pounds over weight. I had eaten fast foods most of my life and really was ready to make a change, especially because I wanted to get pregnant and be healthy for that. *I came in to see Shasta once a week for about 11 weeks, during which time I changed my diet, lost 15 pounds, and regulated my bowel movements.
