Meet Macsen... Here is his story.
Macsen was born with half a heart and has had 3 open heart surgeries before he turned 3. Macsen has never been able to swallow solids. The family has tried feeding therapy for almost 2 years with 3 different therapists, every gadget, special spoon, vibrating toothbrush, chiropractic care, and herbal supplements, to help him get over his overwhelming gag reflex. He has had several MRI's, throat scopes, and appointments with 4 different GI's and 2 different neurologists who were all unable to help them.
Back in April, Macsen's mother, Alexandra, orders our cbd oil off amazon, and gave hi 6 drops and he started to eat immediately. Alexandra and her husband were absolutely blown away! His gag reflex went away the same day they started it and he has eaten everyday! 6 - 8 times a day.
We recently received word that Macsen was tapering off on his eating again, with similar symptoms of but not nearly as bad as before. We at Irie plan to continue our support for Macsen and family throughout these life's challenges.
