  • Jenn Bartram was dealing with a major problem. She woke up in the middle of the night craving sugar. She ate handfuls of candy corn and was trying hard not to eat sweets, but still felt totally out of control.
    She wasn’t sure how to get a handle on her cravings, then Dr. Merry McIntyre recommended Dr. Bobbie Hall.
    Hall is a certified natural health practitioner, master herbalist and naturopathic doctor that has a private natural health practice in town called Trinity Natural Health.  
    Bartram had her first appointment in mid-October and it was then that Hall told her she had Candida — an imbalance that cancer survivors often face.
