This story changed my life. If you look up my nickname on this forum, you will see that I have this exact condition. I posted pictures as well. Doctors were telling me I was going to die. I ain't dying.
I realized a lot of what I was going through was brought on in my mind. I looked at my life. I was rejecting myself.
So I am making changes. I have always wanted a home by the water. I also have wanted to finish by degree and get a masters degree.
So, I am in school, and I graduate in August with my bachelors degree. I am putting my house on the market and I am selling it. And I'm moving to Florida. I found a 2bed/2ba house right by the ocean [it has a large deck that you could put a bed on. I love decks]. You can feel the breeze from the ocean. I can go swimming each morning before I go to work in the ocean! And I start LAW SCHOOL.
My grown children are very happy for me. I'm leaving the past behind, and starting over. I'm going to have a yard sale and get rid of crap. Moving from will help me emotionally and physically.
I have gotten lucky and have gotten a doctor to give me intraveneous doses of vitamin c over the past 9 days for Hep C and oral lichen planus. The lichen planus had gotten so bad that I couldn't talk or eat anything except liquids and plain pasta. I have gradually gotten up to 100 grams of viatmin c, which is what I have been taking for the past 3 days. I have yet to have diarrhea which is bothersome since diarrhea means that I have reached my limit and should back down. However I can talk again without pain and can eat solids once again, thought nothing abrasive yet.
Another cure zone member said that I should use a High dose Ph therapy and that I should alkalize my system. What does this mean and do you have any suggestions?
My lab results from a month ago are as follows:
My lab results from this morning are as follows;
Do the above fluctuate so much that it makes no difference or is this good news?
My boyfriend was diagnosed as a diabetic some 5 years ago. At the time he was overweight. He began on insulin at the time I did not know him then, but I would guess that he was not very consistant).
Over the past three years he has become a very spiritual person and had adopted the belief that thru the power of his mind, prayer, communing with Source Energy and visualizing his wellness that he can be made whole. My faith is not as strong as his but I do admire and am trying to support him in the best ways I know how. He stopped taking insulin about 3 years ago and pretty much eats whatever he wants (he had a very high fat, high sugar, high corn syrup diet) He has lost all of his weight despite this fact and beleives this is due to his positive spiritual outlook.
As I said I am trying to be suuportive, but having grown up in a home with a noncompliant diabetic I am worried about several things I am noting. He is lethargic. He doesn exersice but he doesnt have the energy of a normal 41 year old. He has neropothy (sp?) and thus cannot perform intercorse. He has uncontrolled fecal incontinance. And over the last week I am noting that both of his feet are swelling and have a slight discoloration on the bottom.
While everything in me is screaming go to the ER (he wont) I am just trying to find he best way to get him to do the smallest thing I can to help him. As of late (because I think he sees how bad things are becoming, and because he knows I am into natural rememdies) he has asked me about natural supplements.
He is taking a probiotic for digestion, mainly because the fecal incontinence had become such a source of embaressment.
Please help me to understand what is happening and how i can approach him and help him.
PS sorry for the typos...I am on a mac and I am a pc person and have no idea how to go back and edit. :-)
Sinusitis literally means an inflammation of membranes in sinuses, hollow spaces close to the nose and surrounded by the bones of the face. However, when we say we are suffering from sinus problems are times when we have an active infection in our sinuses. The infection may be due to bacteria or fungi which come from the air we breathe.
A sinus is actually an element of our bodies’ defense against the many microbes and allergens in the air. Yet, it’s probably the part of the body that gets infected the most often. But eradicating an existing sinus infection never guarantees lasting relief as sinus problems usually return quickly.
Actually it is the main misconception about chronic sinusitis to regard it a disease which requires only clearing an existing infection. This misconception also leads doctors to the idea that sinusitis can be managed with antibiotics and a few side drugs. We now know that it is certainly not the case; we know that despite many advanced forms of medications and surgery, a high percentage of chronic sinusitis cases cannot be cleared up.
This is because chronic sinusitis actually has some hidden underlying causes, which if not treated, renders medications ineffective. Some of these underlying causes were discovered after 1999 for the first time and their solutions even later, and most doctors have not adopted them into their treatments. As a matter of fact, most physicians haven't even heard or read about them.
These underlying causes are vasomotor (non-allergic) rhinitis, mold allergy, body-wise inflammations originating from digestive problems and failure of mucociliary system (the innate system installed in sinuses to keep them clean and healthy). Each of these conditions keeps decreases aeration of sinuses by keeping the nose blocked. This lack of sufficient aeration makes sinuses vulnerable to infections. Failure of mucociliary system has further detrimental effects on sinus health because it sustains a high level of microbes and irritants in the nose and sinuses.
Each of these conditions may condemn a person to living with chronic sinus problems. And, it should be treated to give the patient a lasting relief. This understanding is increasing among ear-nose-and-throat specialist medical doctors but, unfortunately, not at a desired pace.
It's not a neurological problem. It's an eye problem.
The kid's eyes are itching, and he is intuitively trying to "squeeze" irritating substance out of the eyes using eye muscle. He probably ate something that he is allergic to, or he came into contact with a caustic substance.
If he's shutting his eyes so hard that it hurts, this is a big problem. While it's unlikely that he will injure himself permanently, there is a small possibility of it.
This is not a nerve problem. Doctor only mistake it as such, because they don't understand the reason for the muscle contraction. They compare it to nervous twitch, but this problem is very different than nervous twitch. If your son says his eyes are itching, then you can be certain that there is irritant in the eye. Eliminate whatever is causing the irritation (diet/enviromental) and your son will stop contracting his eye muscle.
I just joined curezone, because of your post which I happened to run into, in search for a cure for my problem.
I am 32 and my husband is 31.
To make a long story short, I am sterile, infertile and my husband is not.
We have been hoping for a child for years, but nothing.
I have never had a pregnancy.
A few months ago I was diagnosed with many ovarian cysts, on both ovaries.
NO doctor has ever noticed them before but the fertility expert I visited, says it is probably because I had the spiral as a young woman. He thinks it could have made some complications and sent me to have an operation - laparoscopy - done.
I am scared of operations, I wish I didnt have to go...but in the end I will.
Its due on March 3rd.
We are from Serbia, living in Slovenia, always under a lot of stress.
Fighting our way alone in a foreign country.
Although I have been vegetarian for the past 5 years, I am 10-15kg overweight.
I started eating living and thinking macrobiotics over a month ago, and I do feel better in every possible way. I lost 5kg in a month. I pray, do power yoga every morning for an hour, and go to church regurrarly. Having sung for 5 years in a church choire and read a lot of spiritual books, I consider myself a very spiritual person. At the moment I am self teaching REIKI (cause I cannot afford payed lessons)and hope to self heal as well.
I hope macrobiotics will help me cleanse my organism and hopefully lead to a good pregnancy and eventually a lovely baby.
Do you have any specific advice or tip you could give me regarding my problem?
I am full of faith, but a bit unpatient...:)
I am pretty healthy but getting older I don't exercise or watch what I eat and I am starting to feel the effects of it. I thought that it was time to start taking better care of my self and wanted to add some supplements to my diet. I heard the cq10 is great for the heart and gums. Since I have heart and gum disease in my family I thought that maybe it would be a great idea to start taking them. I also suffer from mild depression and had heard that acai can help in that area as well as it being a great hunger surpressant. Can you give me any info on them such as the benefits and side effects, how much to take, what are the best brands, and can I take them together? Also, any input on what vitamins a 40+ year woman and for my husband also 40+ should take would be greatly appreciated.
I have rosacea. What exactly does one have to do to get rid of rosacea? Have you ever known anyone to actually get rid of it for good? I can keep it under control by using Prosacea from Walgreens. However, I still have it. My cheeks are still pinker than others and I still will feel a flush occasionally. I do not feel like I can actually get on the ideal diet. I simply don't like vegetables. In order to make them palatable, you have to add things to them that aren't healthy. It is so frustrating to me. I don't mind carrot juice, but it is such a hassle to make and you get so little juice from the carrots even with my champion juicer. I like beans and carrots, but that is about it. I was told if you eat something long enough, you will learn to like it. However, after eating broculli for years, I still don't like it. I tolerate it. I have tried the Lemonade Diet and the 3 days cleanse and the Water Cure and the gallbladder flush. I think my health has improved, but not dramatically. My rosacea remains about the same.
im 23 and have had my gallblader removed a few months ago and was told i had over 100 gall stones! i had 2 have it removed because i had pancritus. i've started getting pain again and stomach pain and my eyes look a little yellow and if i eat fruit i become very ill. what foods should i eat? im worried about my pancreas and especially about my liver, my dad died of liver failer at 46 due to type 2 diabeties but i dont have diabeties and im not over weight im 57kg 5"2'and have a nine month old baby.
Someone very close to me was having a problem with their relationship. It was very close to ending, this would have been awful, over twenty-five years they have been together. I read them this post. They faced the partner, like the lion. Within a week the partner did a total turn around, the relationship saved. Thank-you
