read our purpose. Why, indeed. Check it out:

reconsideration, retrospect, review, revision...

The idea behind this awareness site is just that,.. to inspire the cause for reconsidering the causes behind this growing
epidemic. To provide the knowledge that leads to the power to better understand and then take back the control. To 'rebirth'
what we thought we knew, and help it grow. To expand awareness.
Our hope is to spread awareness about the kind of Constipation
that leads to Encopresis
as well as much needed awareness that encopresis can
be caused by a Milk Protein Allergy
,... something that for years has been drastically overlooked, and brushed off,.. ill-considered and ignored.
Support for what you can do to improve the life of your child, and how to do it.
Stop blindly treating your child's ailment. These are medical conditions, and they should be addressed at their
source. Laxatives and enemas can in some cases be an effective method of treatment for the symptoms of these conditions, but
they are by no means the answer to them, and can often prove to be dangerous and cause further harm in the long run. Treating
a symptom is not treating the cause. It's time we press this issue... for our children's sakes.
