I recently took part in Sally Gray’s “Root Cause Resolution” Program, in the hope that it would help me get closer to resolving a chronic health issue for my son. To say that the program has changed my son’s life (and that of our family) would not be overstating it.
For almost 3 years, my son had taken laxatives daily to comfortably use his bowels (despite being very active, drinking plenty of water, and eating what we considered to be a very healthy diet). I desperately wanted to get to the bottom of WHY he needed to take laxatives, and to fix the underlying problem.
We visited SIX General Practitioners, a chiropractor, a physio, a reflexologist and a gastrointestinal specialist. The consensus was that if he needed laxatives it was no big deal, and that it was actually a very common scenario. This just didn’t sit well with me. Just because something is common doesn’t mean it’s normal.
In addition to this, my previously placid little boy’s mood was becoming increasingly low. He seemed very highly strung, had difficulty sleeping, and was experiencing frequent angry outbursts. Yet, we could not identify any real reason for these dramatic changes in his behaviour. These symptoms, had an impact on the entire family. I instinctively felt that his bowel issue and his deteriorating behaviour were linked.
Since completing the Root Cause Resolution Program, my son no longer requires laxatives and uses his bowels comfortably every day. His mood is calm and easy-going, and he is enjoying life a lot more. I feel like we have been given our ‘real’ son back, and our whole family is reaping the benefits.
I simply cannot recommend this program highly enough. I am still astounded by the value-for-money Sally provides to participants. I was such an enjoyable experience and it really did provide me with the ANSWERS I’d been searching for, for so long.
I also wanted you to know that in addition to my son’s chronic bowel “issue” his steadily deteriorating mood and behaviour had become a huge concern for us. I always strongly felt that the two things were linked. Our previously placid boy had become so highly strung and irritable, with frequent angry (sometime violent) outbursts. Yet we could not think of any real cause for the change in his behaviour. The lowest point came after another irrational angry outburst, when our 7 year old said, “Mummy, I feel so sad and angry and I don’t know why. I just want to DIE.” His eyes were pleading with me to help him. Every medical professional we’d seen wasn’t at all concerned about his need to take laxatives every day, but it was suggested he be put on a mental health plan and see a psychologist. I declined to do that. I just felt it was not the answer.
Since completing your program our son no longer requires laxatives. That in itself is a hugely positive outcome. The biggest gift however, is the complete turnaround in his behaviour. I feel like we’ve been given our ‘real’ son back. He is calm, more able to regulate his responses, and is definitely enjoying life a lot more. “Thank you” just doesn’t seem sufficient.
Much gratitude, Sally
Hi Sal, I just wanted to send an email to say how much I am loving your program! As you know I have been into health and nutrition for a while so was wondering what I might get out of the program but it’s incredible and I’m getting so much out of it! So many a-ha moments and it’s really taken my thinking and action to the next level. You have put together the most amazing masterpiece of knowledge and you are a born presenter, it’s so easy to watch and interact. I was always waiting in anticipation for the next week. You have been my inspiration since we met with my first born 8 years ago and you continue to be to this day. Keep on doing your thing but thank you, thank you, thank you my sister on this journey!!!
I found Sally’s course in complete desperation. My baby had been struggling with eczema for almost a year and I had tried everything. We did GAPS for 3 months, we took probiotics, we had every eczema cream and miracle solution known to man. Nothing was working. I ended up at my GP reluctantly filling out a topical steroid prescription. My instinct was screaming “NO!” at me but I just didn’t know what else to do. I found the Root Cause Resolution course and magically it started within the next week – perfect timing. I learnt about Red Skin Syndrome and realised that my baby’s skin was addicted to the steroids (we had only been using them for 2 months). After week 2 of the course we went cold turkey with the steroid cream and, with Sally’s help, my child is now steroid free but also eczema free! We had to make a few dietary changes in the beginning however we are now back to eating our whole food diet. We were embarking on the never ending steroid train before I took this course and now my whole family’s health is heading in the right direction. I feel empowered even more so to look after my family with whatever comes our way. Thank you Sally!!
FANTASTIC COURSE! I’D RECOMMEND IT TO ANY MUM!
Hi Sally, I just finished your program (Home Health Care Without Harm) and despite not getting to sample your yummy food along the way, the online program is fantastic. I am so impressed with all the lessons as well as the meal planner and recipes which is a very generous addition. I also like the links to purchasing products to have on hand this is gold for me. Overall to know that I can come back to this information in such an easy format is very comforting. I am now going to get bulk in supplies and to print out all those recipe books. I would recommend this course to anyone needing help in this area. I hope to join you soon at another workshop. Thanks Sally…Warmest regards Tarnya, Perth
LOVELY AND INSPIRING
Thank you Sally for the Kids Snacks and Lunches book online. It is always so lovely and inspiring to read your work. I love to use your “Nourishing Your Child for Health & Happiness” book a few times a week. I spoke to you on Skype last November regarding my daughter who is now the most healthy and beautiful 16 month old. As she is my third child I can honestly say that she is the healthiest and strongest as a result of being on a grain free diet, despite her cesarean birth. The boys also had a good diet as babies but allowing even a small amount of wheat based products or unprepared grain meals obviously had an effect. My daughter has bone broth daily as well as may other wonderful foods such as ferments that I used to prepare less often for the boys.
