Thanks *so* much everyone for the moral support, and for some hope that my liver detox may work despite my pervasive dental bacteria/pain.
Tracey here's my very-temporary (for-now) address:
female?200?at?excite (remove the question marks and modify as necessary)
I'm in a position that I don't even know what bacteria caused my urinary tract infection because all the stupid hospital printout stated was "bacteria". And so I'm undecided whether to order D-Mannose which costs $23 (and only works for E-Coli), or to try and find chrysanthemum instead, which [may?] work for all bacteria. Because I'm dead scared of continuing the Cipro that I was prescribed, as I'm told Antibiotics worsens kidney stones which I'm afraid I have.
I mean, people speak of NORMAL stuff such as blood in urine. What I've been having for more than a decade was REAL bleeding from that area - sometimes black blood. Yet any of the doctors I've seen would say I'm OK based on their shallow diagnostics criteria.
As for bowel cleanse, I don't think I need that because even though I tend toward constipation, I've figured out a methodology which helps with that. BTW, what tends to spur my bowel movements the most, is to sit in front of the computer for awhile. I suspect that my computer emits positive energy fields which are:
(1) good - in the respect of keeping me "regular"
(2) bad - in the respect that it may be responsible for replicating my bacteria, thus exacerbating urinary tract infection.
I know there are protective shields, but they're not cheap and I'm wondering if they really work.
There's other stuff I suspect I need besides liver detox, and that's Vitamin D3 (my level is very low), Vitamin E, a form of Vitamin C that wouldn't irritate me, and whey protein concentrate. But I don't see the sense in starting with these until I rid myself of poisons and blockages. For all I know I may have calcium stones which may be too tough to break. Maybe that's why I'm allergic to calcium.
I'm soon about to start on Bitters, Coptis and Taheebo as well as avoiding most foods that I like either because they're irritating or acidic or estrogenic. What's left for me to eat - who knows. How I'll get through such a diet - again, who knows. It's real depressing.
