Q&A with Naturopath Siobhán Carroll

Q&A with Naturopath Siobhán Carroll

1. Tell us a little bit about yourself?

But sometimes there can be unexpected side effects. It is necessary to cut through the abdominal walls to reach the appendix and after the fact, patients have to grow around the scar tissue.
