Carole's Story

As the mother of two very allergic daughters, I was confronted with a set of circumstances involving symptoms, reactions and behaviors that were not only baffling to me, but to my children’s doctors as well. Countless treatment courses got us nowhere. I spent two years reading everything I could find, researching therapies, making countless phone calls to doctors, hospitals, medical centers, and universities. I finally found two very dedicated pediatricians, one of whom was a clinical ecologist. Working together, we were able to determine what was causing our oldest daughter’s problems. Fortunately, both doctors were open to alternative therapies which led to new ways of successfully treating both of our children.

Having grown up with traditional medicine, this was the beginning of a new and often perplexing journey. However, we embraced it out of desperation and the determination to solve the mystery of healing our children. That was more than twenty-five years ago and thankfully both of our daughters have thrived and are leading healthy and successful lives.

Had I known then what I know now, that journey, 25 years ago, would not have been so frightening nor nearly as long or difficult. That is what motivated me to start All Ways Healthy back in 1989. I wanted to share what I had learned so that other families could benefit from our family’s journey and in turn, share their stories in helping others. We learn, we share, we grow. Now we have an All Ways Healthy community working together to solve problems and helping each other live healthier, happier lives.
