"Brenda Watson has proven prescient time and time again, educating us with her insights into bowel health years before it was fashionable. Brenda continues to be a major force in the world of bowel flora and probiotics, digestion and pancreatic enzymes, and other issues crucial to ideal gastrointestinal health, articulated in easily grasped terms in her several excellent books."
“A few years ago I was suffering from severe fatigue. I was just tired all the time, and no matter what I did, it just kept getting worse. I went to several different doctors and had so many tests done—bloodwork, CAT scans, X-rays—you name it, I had it done. Eventually I was referred to an infectious disease doctor, but after another round of testing, even he said there was nothing wrong with me and he just told me to go home and rest!! It was so frustrating, and that's when I finally turned to Brenda who told me "Katie, it's all in your gut" and it was...and she changed my life! One of the first things she did was a comprehensive stool analysis (yes, that means a poop test!), and with her help I discovered that all my health problems were starting in my gut. So after balancing my system with the help of pharmaceuticals, natural supplements, and cutting things out of my diet like refined sugar, dairy, wheat and gluten, I now feel amazing. Thank you, Brenda!” Watch Katie's Story”
"A few weeks ago, I listened to your talk on PBS ( I have been using your supplement for years!) and then went on your website. And somewhere you mentioned gluten sensitivity and celiac disease and a test that could be done to detect it. At the time I was feeling so sick with headaches,VERY foggy mind, aches and pains, diarrhea and I felt there was inflammation everywhere in my body. I contacted Entero Lab (they are great!) did the test and I am positive. I changed my diet and I feel great! Thank you so much.”
“Dear Brenda, I saw your program on PBS, Dallas a few years ago. I started getting 35 grams of fiber and in two years, I have lost 20 pounds-really without even trying. I am 68 years old and weigh 125 pounds now and the Doctor I have, said I am the perfect weight for my height and frame. I guess one of the biggest benefits is that I am no longer constipated - like I was all of my life. I worked at dieting with different programs but nothing worked before the fiber diet. I poop and toot more but at my age, who cares? I am healthy and my skin is very young looking. Thank you for your journey!”
