Multaq
Posted by ORH (TEN MILE, TN) on 10/30/2020
★★★☆☆

HI U OLE PATOOTS, ORH here, and can solve all your health problems but have no clue how to solve mine. My cardiologist got me on Multaq back in 10/'19 and I stopped taking it, when I learned that my problem was electrical and went to that kind of cardiologist. They could not do an ablation as I have written about, but gave me many Rx to take. They told me my problem would not kill me, but I would have a poor quality of life. After awhile, I decided that I had rather die than live with this and so I stopped all Rx except my blood thinner. I reconsidered my status and started back on the Multaq a month ago.

A month ago I asked my natural doctor to take over my situation and he is running tests. This week I told him that my Multaq is running out and should I continue? He said that is toxic and a patient came to him which had to go on oxygen to live. It was because the Multaq had him in pulmonary fibrosis and his lungs could not put oxygen into his body. It has nothing to do with his heart. Right now, I am certain that this is what has happened to me.

Good people, Rx have side effects that can kill you. He chelated out his patient's lungs and he is now not on oxygen. That is the reason we all go on EC because our medical folks do not know sheet from shinola. I have decided that I need a medical person that sees me often and not once ever 6 months to review my lab work. I hope this makes sense. I know I have no easy out. Don't have pluggage, but an electrical problem that can't be addressed with an ablation treatment.

I don't have the answer, but am searching as we all are. I am using my Quack Chelation Doctor to get me through this. By the way, he was a marine boot, so he is grounded. He is 73, and no spring chicken. I am certain, I have made the right choice for counsel.

A long time ago, I used that for one year and it is a very weird drug. I dosed down and dosed down until it was half a pill every third day or so and still I had some issues getting off it. I would also go to healing sites for prayer covering while you go through that year of no medication. I go to John Mellor and Mark Hemans for their healing prayers and you can put in prayer requests. Keep a journal about diet, fresh air, giving, and emotions so you can track with your healing. Keep positive choices, music, friends, media, books, and keep a thankfulness journal that you daily add something new that you can be thankful for. Each day say them outloud. Also helping someone else by praying, smiling, a kind word, or what ever will benefit you. Make kids stuff for homeless shelter or buy hat or gloves at dollar store to give to shelter. This will all make you feel less vulnerable and weak. Let the weak SAY I AM STRONG. As you give you receive.

GABA works like valium and I take it most days. magnesium calms, D-3 k-2 are hormone, B vitamins coat nerves. Alpha lipoic acid for nerve pain in body. Breathing right can help too, Check out youtube counsellors for overcoming mental/emotional roadblocks . Join grief share online for daily emails about grieving. You were on the drug for some reason. Walks, fresh air, smiling. Tell yourself you are loved and lovely and people enjoy your company and you make wise choices and are good at taking care of your life. It will all help. Stay on task . Blessings, Charity


Detoxing Prescription Medications

Dear Dianne,

I would begin with some dietary and lifestyle changes and a few supplements. It took years for your health to decline to this point, so be patient with yourself as you move towards better health.

Intermittent fasting with a whole foods plant based diet (dairy free, sugar free, and gluten free) will go a long way towards improving health. A friend of mine cured her diabetes and Hashimoto's with a diet that helped her lose 20% of her body weight. On the whole foods plant-based diet (without intermittent fasting, ) my husband dropped his cholesterol a ton, reduced his blood pressure, stopped snoring and lost 50lbs, all in about 6 months.

Intermittent fasting is simple but not easy. You will be hungry but your body will adjust. Drink lots of water when you are hungry. Choose an 8 hour window in which to eat, say 9 am to 5 pm. Eat nourishing foods and include salads and smoothies.

Find a way to increase your movement. If you are not up to taking walks yet, start with bounces on the edge of your bed and rocking in a rocking chair.

If you can take epsom salt baths before bed, do so.

A gallbladder flush should help the GERD and with some general detox, but I would wait until you have been on the diet for a month.

Some basic supplements to begin with would be vitamins C and D and turmeric.

Please keep us posted on your progress!

Dear Gertjr,

I took Synthroid for 3 months. I felt awful. Just curled up on the couch getting nothing done.

I quit taking it and felt better than when on it. Unfortunately, my thyroid symptoms got worse and intolerable.

I have been on Armour for quite a while. It definitely works better for me. I feel better now at 55 than I did at 45 for sure. Even though scans show my thyroid looks much better (nodules healed) I still have a return of thyroid issues if I don't take my Armour.

Everyone is different. This is just my little story. I know you are a researcher and take care of yourself. I trust you will figure out what makes you feel best!

Hi Tracy

Get a bottle of Activated Charcoal and it should fix your problem. Remember, only take Activated Charcoal pills 2 hours after any prescription drugs. If you take it under 2 hours, the charcoal pills will kill the prescriptions, I know this will fix your problem.

Keep healthy

guest,

You're welcome!

The icing is very important as it is a very potent anti inflammatory and may be synergistic with the mag oil. That is why you see professional basketball and football players doing whole body icing after games, but in your case a regular ice pack will be sufficient.

Come back and let us know how you do.

B-50 for Novocaine Shot Side Effects
Posted by Danka (Chelsea, Ma) on 09/30/2009
★★★★★

Numbness after dental procedure:

I had dental procedure and got Novocain shots, came home and waited numbness to go away. And waited and waited, next day started panicking so I went to my dentist. He checked it out told me how its called when that happens, and said its rare but sometimes can happen. When I asked him what should I do he just shrugged. Worst thing is this was front upper tooth, so every movement hurt plus I hurt my gums because I cant feel anything. I didn't do anything because I thought dentist would tell me if there is anything to be done. At last I got sick of it and spent hours of research and found the solution. Vitamin B-50 complex and follow the instructions on the bottle, if you dont feel any change in several days take Vit B-100 complex. You will feel change little by little, sometimes nothing will happen for days but keep at it. It took me several months, some people got better in few days. I know its rare but you never know. So if you are that one person in millions I hope it helps you. Good luck

guest,

Mag oil is magnesium chloride oil in a spray form. Here is a link to a typical product :

https://www.amazon.com/Magnesium-Oil-Spray-Strength-Essential/dp/B07S76B9DC/ref=sr_1_29?crid=1BC6A80NT3Q20&keywords=mag+oil&qid=1692202864&sprefix=mag+oil,aps,162&sr=8-29

Mag oil can help relieve pain and in some people can more specifically relieve nerve pain. It relaxes the muscles and in combination with icing is a potent anti inflammatory. A very non invasive inexpensive approach to see if it can offer you relief.

Good job deciding to take control. Start with what you eat--make it as unprocessed and nutrient dense as you can. Then, as you are able, incorporate activity, physical and mentally uplifting. Your body will start to clear itself if given the right components. Then, slowly start some detox protocols (intermittent fasting is great, it lets your body rest and learn to use what it already has). Water. Lots of water. Good luck

GertJr,

Family history is a risk factor. However, FYI, 1) Sometimes you inherit it, sometimes you don't... please do not assume you inherited it. 2) Levothyroxine Sodium (Synthroid) is not a good drug, as it is a synthetic one that supplies only only ONE the much needed 4 hormones that the body needs. 3) There are lots of people who feel tired and miserable when they're taking this drug. 4) In the old days you had a choice; however, as of 2022, this is THE drug that just about every MD pushes for the treatment of hypothyroidism. However, 5) On the positive side, maybe you're not even hypothyroid; because, for an MD, it's easy to make a mistake, because the usual TSH hormone level test is not a good enough test for hypothyroidism. 6) Also on the positive side, cheer up, it can't be that bad; currently you're on an extremely low dose that should make little or no difference in the way you're feeling. 7) Also on the positive side, if you keep finding that (in the future) you really need some serious thyroid med, then you can always ask for a better natural thyroid product such as Armour Thyroid. I hope this will help you!

Dilatin and Osteoporosis
Posted by Timh (Ky) on 02/14/2016 2064 posts

-ORH- One thing that bothers me is the advise "to allow me to live with my problem". This is a statement of surrender rather than "do my best to heal the problem". This is why so many folks come to alternative www's like E.C. because they are usually faced living with the consequences, as is exampled in your case.

For any progress to be made in your situation, you must, like in my case, be very objective. A few yrs ago proly not long after I came on board here, I knew without a doubt that I absolutely must adopt a method of "very smart & very aggressive"; no room for mistakes. Your hindsight review is a pretty clear picture of the problem, now you must apply a very exact solution.

It is an error in thinking that if one ever gets burned as in the case of certain dr's, to never trust them again. In this case it seems imperative to get those vertebrae back into alignment as much as possible, may take different dr's or chiro's but make great efforts to make some forward progress. I have run across an holistic osteopath some time back and think I mention him here once with a link. He has experience in several areas particularly sports medicine where it is very much about healing & repair, not living with the consequences. He has developed several effective nutritionals, including hormonal regimens and products that are likely some of the best of today. Give me a few days to find his contact and I will post it back to you.

Meanwhile, do reconsider the baths I mentioned as oral administration of nutrition is limited. My recent use of LET nutrition and mineral baths have proven this fact. Case in point, because of my extreme acidosis, it has been a major battle keeping radiation out of my bones, to this end I quit diary as it has small amounts of radioactive strontium. So, in addition to supplementing calcium, I started taking a supplement of Strontium, and went thru 2 bottles. OK, suspecting insufficient delivery, I purchased some Calcium as well as Strontium bulk powder for baths. After my first bath with Strontium I had some rather severe herx reaction as the radioactive stuff went out of my body.

For rebuilding the bones in particular, as I am sure you know, it is important to include all these minerals in your program: Calcium & Phosphorus, Magnesium, Strontium, Boron, Manganese, Silica. Vit-C helps with the collagen matrix. Lots of people are having good results with Hyuralonic Acid nowadays. Of course keeping inflammation down with Magnets and Turmeric will help much.

As for rebuilding muscle, bone, etc. You must adopt an aggressive protocol as the aging factor is against you. The combination of Growth Hormone stimulators and Testosterone stimulators is a must. For Testosterone there are a number of good herbals used widely by especially athletes and bodybulders as well as DHEA and the amino acid D-Aspartic Acid. For growth hormone boosting I take Raw Bovine Pituitary substance and the amino GABA with good results, and 50mg DHEA for Test.

To further activate the regeneration of new bone tissue, you will need to take Ostivone. A plant based androgenic substance discovered and used by the Soviets is 5 Methoxyflavone. Quality protein is also important. Red meat and Whey protein come to mind. A supplement of Arginine/Ornitine/Lysine is a big favorite for starters as it produces an adrogenic effect and boost HGH.

With a smart & aggressive program briefly mentioned above, I see lots of room for improvement, likely significant improvement.

There are more advanced healing modalities like stem cell and fetal cell therapies. Research Mesenchyme Therapy. I am a little uncomfortable with aborted animal tissue, but if the recipient lives a life worthy of the sacrifice it may be justified, and in comparison to the thousands of animals we consume as food, my goodness the slaughterhouse is booming. Anyway you take injections of the Mesenchyme and healing potential increases, and particularly along with HGH.

Hi ORH!

I read and enjoy all your postings, and it saddens me to hear about your latest struggle. Since I'm a redneck from East Texas, I especially like your comments about your gardens and other outdoor endeavors. I would like to share with you something that has helped me and continues to do so. I have a pinched sciatic nerve in my back, and it was so painful that I could not walk, due to the stabbing pain in my knee. I read somewhere that in order to release that nerve, you can hang from a bar, like the ones used to do chin-ups from. Just let your body weight do the pulling on your spine. It only takes a minute and when you are finished "hanging, " the pain goes away within a few minutes. You could probably use one of those inversion tables to hang upside down, too. I can't use that, however, as I have glaucoma. Anyway, I hope for the best for you in your quest for a pain and illness free life. Don't give up!

Posted by Art (California) on 08/15/2023 2073 posts

guest,

It is possible to hit a nerve with the injection, but it is rare and most common in people who are obese because it makes it harder to define and hit the precise target to avoid hitting a nerve.

Try icing the area of pain for 25 minutes three times per day for three days to see if that helps. You might also try applying mag oil to that area also for those three days.

Cortisone Shot
Posted by Marina (Miami) on 08/16/2023

Try Hypericum perforatum. When my son wanted to get such an injection I said I would lie in front of a train just to prevent him from getting the shot. He got oral steroids instead and nearly committed suicide that night, he had a steroid psychosis, not so rare adverse effect. He said it was the scariest night in his life. We are genetically predisposed to adverse effects from steroids.


Cortisone Shot
Posted by Marina (Miami) on 08/16/2023

Hypericum perforatum - buy directly from Boiron to guarantee authenticity. 30c or 200c you decide. They have FAQ on their site. Ideally you should have a consultation with a homeopath.
The way I understood, you're experiencing an excruciating pain. So the remedies are to help you with the pain.

If your nerve(s) got damaged, there's nothing you can do as to pray your body would eventually heal it, the same with cortisone- it's not something you can remove from your body, your body would eventually remove it on its own. acupuncture is for the pain. Unfortunately, nerve damage is the worst kind of damage one can get, especially if it was damaged by a needle.
Lastly, LDN helps with many types of pain, but I don't know about nerve damage pain. Go to LDN research trust site and see if they list your condition. In any case you have nothing to lose. LDN is cheap with practically no side effects. Call a local compounding pharmacy and ask for the names of doctors who prescribe LDN.

Hi guest

I do not have many answers for you. When I took the high dose vitamin D3 it was 10 -1,000 gel capsules after each meal for 2 days only. Then 10 - 1000 every weekday for good health. I always use Natural Factors brand where I live. It really worked for me and if you decide I know it will work for you too. One added tip is rubbing 1-3 drops of D.M.S.O. morning and night. They say out of all there is only 2 Miracles and D.M.S.O. and Food Grade Hydrogen peroxide are it.

Hope this helps

Xanax

I would so suggest you don't take Xanax. It's a benzo I was on them for 26 years for panic attacks. I took myself off of them and I almost died. I was in the hospital for 2 months, my blood pressure was sky-high, my body did not know what to do without the benzos. I would suggest weaning yourself off of those immediately!


Dilatin and Osteoporosis
Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, Tn) on 02/12/2016

HI U Timh, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , I've told bits and pieces of my health saga that has evolved over the years. In this ditty I'll try to put it together so folks can learn from mistakes made by me and my doctors. All this story is in 20- 20 hind sight.

Here goes, , , , , , , , about 10 years ago I learned that my pelvic area was consumed with osteoporosis and I had no clue as to why. I'd always drank lots of milk and have eaten well. After much research I learned that the drug Dilatin was the culprit. I had taken it for about 15 years. It was to avoid blackouts. It helped that problem but as you know there is the devil to pay later on with any drug. Also, in the late 80's, my family doctor put me on a diuretic to lower my blood pressure. That too will remove your minerals and then your body has to pull calcium from your bones to keep your blood pH right. Stupid doctor, and dumb ass me.

For osteoporosis, my next family doctor put me on a drug, which after more research, I learned that it would cause my jawbone to disappear. Soon that was revealed and I stopped it. I then just took bone building supplements, but I was long in tooth and it takes you seven years to rebuild your bones.

Then two years ago I fell and crushed my T 12 vertebra. Flubbed that situation by going to a chiropractor and requesting an X -ray. He took the film too low to catch the problem and I allowed him to manipulate my spine for a week before I went to get an MRI. Then it was too late to address the problem properly. It just healed with a brace. That resulted in about 6 months of back pain, but I got better over time. Then about 6 months ago pain returned but in a different place. After months and months of ineptness by my spine folks, I finally learned this week that my T 12 Vertebrae has now collapsed and has drawn my L 2 and L3 way out of line such that it is now impinging on my sciatic nerve. I did not know this would happen, but it seems that my spine doctor should have known. In hind sight this is another SHEET + 2 = 8. A no brainer.

What I am so thankful for is that my spine doctor passed me on to his physician assistant. He spent an hour and a half going over my situation and the path we will go down to allow me to live with my problem. It will be work because I must build up my stomach and back muscles so that they can hold my back in place. I am now on pain drugs for the first time in my life. Hard to believe but he gave me his essential oil formula that he uses for pain. Told him that the bugger bears were going to get his medical license.

Pain has transformed my personality. A few years ago I was old, but still young at heart. Now I just old physically and mentally. This not a pity party. I just want to tell my story in hopes others can avoid my trail. You have told bits and pieces of your saga and I know my tale is a walk in the park compared to yours.

Dilatin and Osteoporosis
Posted by Hisjewel (America, New York) on 02/14/2016

Hi Timh, ORH and the Whole Earth Clinic Family

"Live onnnnn, anyway---." Among the body of baptized believers in Jesus that I sup with, the term, "Live with it" simply means : "Stay as active as possible." To live with the problem, is to don't let it stop you from the good you can do. We often say, There are those who live for decades with what others die with".

The key is, "Don't worry, and don't live in fear." You are not given more time to fear. Chase it away with happy music, good thoughts, and good doings, think on these things. God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and of a sound mind.

So we thank God for this day, this is the day the Lord has made. We take care of ourselves and stay healthy, so we can help others. We live, until we live forever!

Keep on Sharing, That's love.

Could the hot chili caused excessive acid in your tummy? Do try some Baking Soda next time. Also looks like you need to do some gut healing.

I got a mycoplasma infection from the infested dark mud from a pond but didn't realize it was infection until many yrs later, but in the meantime I wound up with fibrosis. This condition causes major problems in my detox, immune, and metabolic functions. LDN, and Hemp Oil helps with this but not enough. Nebulizing Colloidal Silver is the best method for killing any infection in the lungs; H2O2 will work also but must be careful to get the right amount of dilution. After this treatment I take Glucosamine and Solaray's "Lung Caps" with good results. Calcium 2-AEP is also good to help protect & regenerate healthy lung tissue.


Oxycontin
Posted by Dave (Fountain Inn, Sc) on 06/08/2014
★☆☆☆☆

WARNING!

Here's an alert to those who are dealing with prescription pain medication. Be alert to the problem of colon impaction when taking pain meds...especially Oxycontin. This is a common problem; taking prescription pain meds "relax" the intestines and make uptake of food harder. Literally. Constipation is common and then if bad; impacting might follow.

The above info is common knowledge. But this fact is not common knowledge, even with Hospice Nurses...

What will often be prescribed is a standard twice a day pain killer and nausea killer. Often that pain killer will be Oxycodone. Then another pain killer will be alternated for pain that is NOT the Oxycodone; it is normally Oxycontin (might be a "take as needed").

Here's the big problem: The Oxycontin will NOT dissolve and actually becomes a gummy, gooey hard "pea" sized lump in the intestines. IF the patient is having constipation problems (normal), then the use of Oxycontin will create MORE constipation problems as the gooey/hard core will add to the impacting in the intestine.

Well, the patient cannot eat with a blockage. So in a case where the patient is already in trouble, the use of Oxycontin will add to the problem...creating impacting of a hard gooey mass. If you have access to these two drugs just crush up an Oxycodone (easy to crush and dissolve in water) and then just try to do the same with the Oxycontin. Once you finally get it crushed, add some water...even something with an acidic base...and you will get a gooey hard core. That core will impact. Just use your finger to feel what I'm taking about; the lingering, pea shaped core will stick in a tacky goo to your fingers. Imagine that (say 20 in a five day period) in your intestines where there is already very little movement.

In some cases this situation could become life or death.

Solution is ... not to give Oxycontin to a patient with any sign of constipation. But it is an almost foregone conclusion that constipation WILL follow prescription pain meds.

I've tried using Essential Oils as a substitute...for instance, Lavender for pain. I put on wrists and then just tasting the Lavender gets the oils into the system.


Cortisone Shot
Posted by Barbara (Miami, Az) on 11/03/2012

I had a shot of cortisone when I was 16, I'm 61 now!!! And beginning almost immediately, and continuing now was an allergic reaction to soap products, perfumes, dyes and chemicals, even cleaning supplies... Sometimes, after years of using some product, I would suddenly have this reaction.... Recently, I discovered that I am also senstive to the inactive ingredients in generic medications... (I have had health issues going back maybe 10-14 years, and more recently a bunch of weird symptoms that confused the heck out of my DR, that are now gone since I dropped all my generic meds (I actually did all the research and adjustments without doctor approval... However, when I saw her and reported what had happened and how I discovered all, and that I actually pinpointed the SPECIFIC ones that were the problem... And what suppliments a derm dr had suggested to help with hte skin issues that had presented)... My health prof, who was trying to figure it all out, actually wanted me to quit my multi and other suppliments, refused to do a vitamin-mineral profile saying I was eating ok (I am obese, she never asked what I am eating).. And said I was most likely OD'ing on my suppliments.... (by the way, since this adjustment in meds type, I am dropping lbs hand over foot)

check into other things besides just getting something to eliminate the symptoms... That is what happened to me... Whenever I got a new symptom, my dr would give me another GENERIC MED for it... which led to an awful, miserable time....

GOOD LUCK

Hope you feel better really fast and heal up quickly!

Found this on the internet so hope it is helpful:

How do you make MSM Lotion?

Just stir in a heaping teaspoon of our bulk MSM powder for every 4 ounces of your favorite skin cream or lotion with a popsicle stick (or a spoon). Then wait an hour or more for the powder to dissolve, and stir again. That's it!

Also, does Cipro still have fluoride in it? It may have depleted your iodine levels which affects different areas of your body.

Wishing you wisdom and wellness!

You may be surprised to know that it's not too much meat or heredity that is causing your gout. You are likely consuming too much high fructose corn syrup, which is NOTORIOUS for raising uric acid levels AND causing hypertension. It IS all related to diet, you just haven't been given all the facts. Read labels, they stick corn syrup in everything from bread to catsup and more. Good luck!


Synthroid
Posted by Ivory Coast (Loco, Ca) on 01/17/2010

THERE IS SOMETHING VERY WRONG HERE! SYNTHROID OR ARMOUR SHOULD NOT BE MAKING YOU ANXIOUS OR NERVOUS. PLEASE, GO TO ANOTHER DOCTOR AND HAVE HIM RUN A FULL THYROID PANNEL TO SEE IF YOU REALLY NEED THIS THYROID MEDICATION.

THE OTHER POSSIBILITY IS THAT YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO THE THYROID MEDICATION OR THAT YOU ARE TAKING IT WITH SOMETHING ELSE WHICH YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO. SOMETIMES WHEN YOU COMBINE THINGS TOGETHER YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO THE COMBINATION -- WHEREAS YOU MIGHT NOT BE ALLERGIC TO THEM ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. EXAMPLE: COFFEE AND MILK AND THYROID MEDICINE.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU FIGURE THIS OUT BECAUSE YOU CAN BECOME ALLERGIC TO YOUR OWN THYROID GLAND. THAT IS A VERY SERIOUS DISEASE -- HASHIMOTO'S DISEASE!

Please help! I had a cortisone shot done in both knees two months ago and now the side effects are insane. So far, I have: heartburn, menstrual periods stopped, daily headache, weird joint pain that comes and goes, shaking/tremors, hot flashes and then the chills. I am going to several doctors and am almost broke at this point. A urgent care doctor believes I'm having an allergic reaction but doesn't know what to do but let the steroids get out of my system. The PCP I saw basically thinks I'm insane and just in menopause because of the flushing. Nobody believes me when I say all of these problems started a few days after the shots. I have a bone spur on both kneecaps, which was why I took the shots. NEVER AGAIN!! Please help me find a way to detox or something. Thank you!!

Any suggestions on how to get steroid cortisone injection out of one's system?

Also any recommendations on how to check if a nerve was damaged and how to heal it?

Thank you very much.

Thank you very much Gary.

Does vit. D daily dosage depend on body weight?

Does it matter whether is taken with or without food and whether it is in liquid form or capsules? And does it have to be taken with some other supplement for absorption or just by itself?

Thank you.

Thanks for responding.

A few questions please.

Can you please say whether there is any specific type or strength of Hypericum perforatum to get? How to recognize a high quality one to purchase and how to use it?

What would be the function of the Hypericum perforatum? Is it to help get the injection out of the system or is it for healing damaged nerves?

Regarding accupuncture, is that supposed to help in healing a nerve if it's damaged or is it for reducing pain?

Thank you

How are you doing? I have already posted tested by me or my family members remedies that work such as: Hypericum perforatu (homeopathic), LDN and acupuncture. I want to add two more things-a castor oil pack on the affected area (see “castor oil” under remedies) and Phiten titanium disks. Phiten disks work for me, I keep them on for 10 days or even longer, they “ survive “ showers and a bath, just wash with a soap and dry the area beforehand or use alcohol swabs. They have different strengths disks and with actual small piece of titanium. I've tried them all, they all work for me. Write back about what you've tried and what is working for you. Hope something is helping.

Thank you very much, Marina.

Have been using castor oil packs and also got Traumeel cream and tablets which contains hypericum, though it is homeopathic concentration so very low concentration.

Levothyroxine

My thyroid numbers were off (have a serious family history) and was put on levothyroxine (50 mg/day). Since about a week after starting the levo, I just seem to have no motivation. I look around and see things that need doing and just sit there and don't do them. I am alone, so it's all up to me to get things done. Emptying the litterbox, washing up after meals, etc, is being left longer than they should be, much longer than I would have before. My friend says I need an antidepressant, which I am open to but wonder if I wouldn't be wiser to stop the levothyroxin. I eat clean, grow most of my own vegetables and have plenty of strawberries, blueberries and cherries coming in right now. I also grow my own chickens, cage free/free range, so my diet is pretty good. I lean toward keto, low carb/higher protein and moderate fat. No added sugars, I use stevia or xylitol.

Any thoughts?

I am currently on hydrocortisone 10mg and having a vaginal itch. Could the prescription be causing this?

Stomach Pain Remedies

PLEASE HELP!

Stomach issues while on medication. Hey everyone, So unfortunately I have to take a medication that is driving my stomach mad. I feel so sick and my stomach is so upset. Unfortunately stopping the medication is not an option. The doctor gave me carafate to take but I really don't like medications and don't want to add another. Besides the carafate isn't helping. I make sure to take the irritating medicine on a full stomach and I eat very healthy. I take a probiotic with every meal. I find myself chewing mint gum all day to help the nausea and upset hurt tummy. Does anyone have any recommendations? I would greatly appreciate any feedback you guys may have. I'm at my wits end. Thanks
