I went to see Jane on the recommendation of someone who had also been supported by her. I have suffered from chronic constipation all my life but had generally been able to manage it with diet and various supplements, occasional laxatives etc. Over the last few years, however, it had got significantly worse and was beginning to affect my general health and mood. Visits to the GP and various specialists only came up with ‘more fibre’ as the solution – or laxatives.
The trouble was my diet was already pretty good – I eat loads of fruit, veg, nuts and grains and generally avoid processed food – but, curiously, the more fibre I ate, the worse the problem became. I had read lots about the issue but all the accepted wisdom on the subject didn’t seem to make sense in my case!
Jane was my last resort and I am only sorry I didn’t know of her years ago. She listened carefully and sympathetically to the history of my complaint. Unlike the NHS, she took a holistic and long term view of the problem and, after a series of tests, worked with me to re-educate and reinvigorate my digestive system through supplements and food choices so that it would function normally.
I now go to the loo normally, feel better, have lost a stone (although that was not an intention), and have not touched a laxative since I first saw Jane!
