How did you find out about Hen Sen Herbs? I found them through my Mom after struggling for a year to find a solution for my Toddler’s constipation. The experts I saw ranged from very specialized Pediatric Gastroenterologist to a Naturopath to a Homeopath and none of them could help. I kept a journal of everything she ate, and every supplement she took for nine months until I met Juli.
One of the first things she said was, “You have to feed her vegetables.” Of course, I had been told by the experts all along that I fed my daughter one of the best diets they had ever seen, full of whole grains and organic foods. When Juli spoke the truth, I knew it in my gut, and I didn’t like it, because that meant that I was failing my child, and that the meals I had prepared for her were in fact lacking. The pain she was in from constipation was enough to make me let go of my pride and humbly follow Juli’s prescription for herbs, tea, tummy rubs, and exercise and diet changes.
Within two weeks, my daughter was starting to feel better. After 6 months, she was almost back to normal with her intestines doing their job daily. Now, almost 4 years later, she doesn’t remember the “medicine tea” we fed her with a tincture dropper or the daily tummy rubs she needed to poop. She loves to eat vegetables and doesn’t believe me when I tell her that we used to have to feed her only a plate with vegetables first to get her to eat them before we served up the rest of her meal.
What I have learned from Juli is much more than just the truth that we all need to eat more vegetables, and that is the power of listening to your body. We are the best health experts for us! For our family, we all have benefited from this simple truth. When my kids have a tummy ache or head ache, I first ask them if they know why. At 8 and 6-years-old they both know if they haven’t eaten good foods or drank enough water.
First, we much learn from healers like Juli who have studied traditional Chinese medicine her whole life and learned from the best. And, once we have a good foundation for how to help our body, we are the only ones who can listen. Wishing you a well 2015!
