Karis was born 3 months premature and has suffered her whole life with an un-diagnosed bowel condition. She endured incredible pain every day and was subjected to numerous unsavory interventions and medicines. Eventually, after being passed from hospital to hospital with no success and having in excess of 90 in-patient stays and 47 anaesthetics it was decided to go ahead with a Colostomy bag.
Karis had this for 7 years and it was eventually reversed 2 1/2 years ago. Unfortunately it was only a matter of weeks before things started to go back to the way they were. She was in constant pain with no medication being able to successfully manage her bowel movements. One of the key factors was that Karis had never had any sensation for a need to go to the toilet.
Karen heard of her case and offered to try and help. She saw Karis for 10 treatments which she provided free of charge as she was just keen to help her. Within 2 sessions Karis started to improve, both her bowel movements and also her skin which was always covered in a rash due to the toxins in her body.
Karis now has regular bowel movements and for the 1st time in her life actually gets the sensation of needing to go to the toilet. After nearly 15 years of top doctors from Guys to Great Ormond Street drawing a blank and having no idea how to help her, it has been nothing short of a miracle the success that Karen has achieved. Karis has a normal life for the first time ever and we owe this to Karen.
