When my son Lux was born we were so excited to have our first child. Very quickly however we realized that there was a serious problem and something wasn’t right. He would only have a bowel movement every three to four weeks. When we met with the doctor and different specialists they couldn’t find anything wrong and labeled it as an unknown diagnosis.
This was incredibly stressful for my husband and I to see our son in so much pain and not have any answers. We were making frequent trips to the children’s hospital in Vancouver just to try and get some relief for Lux. These trips were costing a lot of money not to mention how much we were spending on medications. The doctors tried four different medications and while some would provide temporary relief they stopped working after that. Also if we ever missed a dose we’d be back to square one for weeks. These problems were affecting every aspect of our life and it seemed so hopeless. Lux was also experiencing other issues with his skin especially.
We were referred to Vida Chiropractic by a family member and friend and brought Lux in for a check-up. The doctor found some problem areas in his spine and we started getting him adjusted. At the beginning things were up and down. It took a number of months before he could get off his medications but we stuck with it. The doctors also had wanted to do a surgery on Lux but I’m so thankful we decided to wait and hold off on it. Now Lux is off all his medications and doing great.
