First the diagnosis. Calendar.
Often suffering from ailments for a long time, we can not determine what is the main reason for our health problems. Reading a detective's book, I found a valuable clue: When you do not know what's going on, write a calendar. I applied this advice effectively to determine what I am.
Two calendars were created in this way. On one of them I wrote years from my birth, and slowly making memories, I wrote down my ailments and situations, small and large, and the circumstances of these situations. Not everything can be recalled immediately. Sometimes they can suggest something to their loved ones. The creation of this calendar took a while. but it has led me to the trail, and to the realization of various matters of relevance to my health, which I have not previously linked, that may be the cause.
The second calendar, I started to write on a regular basis. At the end of the day. I wrote how I felt and what I ate, as well as circumstances (in general). Often seeing the main problem with health, we do not notice any details that are also important in the diagnosis.
This gives you the opportunity to see the possible causes and consequences and the frequency of problems in time.
It gives the possibility of more effective use of the funds and reduces mistakes in, for example, supplementation or used herbs.

Hi, I am hoping to get the opinion of an expert, but to be honest any advice would be very much appreciated. I am experiencing extreme burning all over my body. If I sit down the burning is on my backside, if I lie down the burning is on my back, if I wear a control/support bra I get a dire burning all over both breasts- it gets to an intolerable stage at times. I definately cannot go out into the sun, as the sun sensitivity is extreme, and therefore I am effectively confined to the house with the summer here. I take medication, and I went to the doctor explaining that I thought it could be that as it seemed to get particularly worse after I take it, however she didn't seem too convinced, but she did change my pills. It is a couple of days now and I am still experiencing the burning. I am wondering does anybody know of any other reason what could be causing this if it is not the medication, and in regards to the medication how long would it usually take for one medication to go out of the system. Our house water is particularly bad but I don't know if this could cause a problem like this - flouride etc?. I live rurally and it is limited as to what services are available but I am wondering would a hair analysis be of any use or who would you contact about this. I am desperate. Thanks in advance.

I am alarmed and hope someone has heard of this. My brother who is a non smoker and structural engineer, so has been on construction sites his whole life breathing in God only knows, told me he has been coughing up clear firm pieces of something for several years.
He told me because he now is having trouble breathing. Everything causes shortness of breath. He can't do anything too strenuous. He hasn't lost any weight and he doesn't cough a lot but when he does, this stuff comes up. Anyone heard of this.
He hates Doctors and will not go.
I have had constant pressure around my head for the last three and a half years. It is as if I had cling film wrapped tightly round my head. It is mild skull crushing.It is not a headache. There is no pain.
Any suggestions please as to what it may be and any possible remedy.

10 years of feeling poorly
Can you help? As you can see from my post I'm trying to get to the bottom of what is making me feel so terrible with the help of my GP and through self help.
Female, 40,1 child, live in the UK.
- Tachycardia - taking propranolol daily
- Breathless - on exertion
- Pressure feeling on chest
- Vertigo - turning head = nausea/dizzy
- Nausea - minor
- Hot flushes - lasts approx 1 minute
- Blurred vision - not doubled
- Fuzzy head - slight headache all day
- Memory loss - short & long
- Cognitive decline - word finding, left & right, confusion, day dream feeling, brain fog
- Weakness - legs/arms
- Fatigue - wavers, some days better than others
- Tremor - left side, goes when sitting down
Other minor symptoms:
- Coated white tongue - sometimes swollen/teeth marks

Felt generally unwell for the past 10 years. Very suddenly I was fighting against something invisible holding me back. My legs were like lead with shackled ankles as I walked up a small incline later that day.
Previously suffered from 3 viral infections per year plus pneumonia, bronchitis, pleurisy
Tests & Diagnosis
Bloods - full panel, follicle stimulating hormone, iron, B12, autoimmune and thyroid but they are all normal. Iron wavered lately but now perfect.
ECG 2014 = normal
Fibromyalgia - but I have no pain
CFS/M.E - I feel very different to others who have it
Abnormal range of female hormone levels - Prostap injections to stop ovaries and add back Livial HRT for 1 year = symptoms persisted throughout so treatment stopped.
Very approachable GP carried out tests after I mentioned possible autoimmune disease, low iron, lack of B12
GP listened to heart rate = prescribed Propranolol beta blockers 1 per day for 1 month
ECG in 1 months time
Referral to specialist if GP 'cannot make me feel better himself'.

Is there something I can try such as candida protocol?
Where would I start with this...please if you can respond with the exact info... I am dyspraxic and I find it hard to trawl through so many posts that go off topic etc...
Thank you so much in advance for your help :)

I am a forty one year old male,and I have suffered with bad health for approx twenty years now..
I lived life in the fast lane from about the age of 17 to 22, working, training and drinking and looking back now my diet wouldn't have been great either.from what I can remember it was around the age of 22 or 23 I started having trouble with my stomach, it started with acid reflux and so it was around this time i was diagnosed with the antidepresent prozak. I would have taken this for a few months without really thinking too much about what they were, obviously the results must not have been good as I went off them. That was the start.
Over the next 12 or 13 years I had numerous hospital appointments where they put cameras up and down and done biopsys and found nothing, so they put it down to stress and called it irrital bowel syndrome. This is quite possible because when I think back now i was very stressed out at the time and didn't even know what stress was. I would have also taken different antidepresents during these years but never for more then a few months. I also tried alot of supplements.
Most of my life I felt run down and as if there was something lacking, and i put it down to pushing myself too hard at work as I am a roofer and my job is very physical..
As time went on the irrital bowel got worse and I needed more sleep breaks due to headaches and fatigue. After reading up on these conditions I feel that this developed into leaky gut syndrome.
Approx 5 years ago,the problems got much worse when my partner left and took my three small children with her.this caused me a great deal of stress and basically I think i suffered a nervous breakdown. I was prescribed more antidepresents including zanax, amitriptyline, centrax, seroxat and cymbalta which altogether i would have taken these over the period of two and a half years. When i did notice a slight improvment in mood and the ibs they did nothing for the headaches and fatigue.
I have not worked in the last 5 years as a new symptom has appeared and the best way I can describe it is a car with a broken altenator, when I do any physical work i get mentally shattered and takes me days to recover with lots of rest it's as if the battery runs down and theres nothing there to recharge it..
Some nights I sleep okay and others not but one way or another i have to sleep for two hours maybe more in the daytime due to a pain in my forehead that only sleep will cure..
Due to this wonderful website and your brilliant advice I'm having good results stomach wise with the alkalising formula of lemon/bs for three or four days a week and baking soda on its own after meals for the rest of the days. I also started using acv and cayenne pepper on salads and anything I fry is done with grapeseed oil but the fatigue and the headaches haven't changed.
I recently got my children back and since finding this website I finally think that I've found someone who knows what they're talking about and so i'd be really gratefull if i could get a reply from you ted detailing what I need to do so as i can get on with my life and look after my children in as normal a way as possible.
Thank you so much..

After two year of extreme symptoms involving several areas of my body. Head, eyes, stomach, bowels, skin, etc. It appears they are caused by extremely high histamine and prostaglandin levels. All other tests are normal (tryptase, serotonin). I have two doctors who think I have carcinoid syndrome with an unlocated tumor. I have two other doctors who think mast cell activation disorder. They don't know for sure so treatment is quite difficult. Any ideas on how to decide which it is? or Any suggestions to help lower my histamine and prostaglandin levels while I wait? Thank you for your time.

Hello Deanna; I see you have many horrific symptoms and that you have used exhaustive measures to find their cause. I would like to suggest that a B-12 deficiency may be a part of the cause of most of these symptoms. It has been used for allergies to sulfa drugs, molds, etc. It has also been used, in conjunction with B-Complex, to treat hyperpigmentation of the skin along with various lesions, including papulosquamous skin disease. B-12 is used to treat many neurologic conditions, including Bell's Palsy. I have found it to help with my own cachexia, in that it increased my appetite and I was able to rebuild muscle. I take a good B-complex orally, (it helps with stomach acid formation for appetite), and I take a sublingual B-12, methylcobalamin, because I have a malabsorption difficulty. This active form of B-12 doesn't need to be converted by the liver, so it is more easily utilized by the body if there is liver, stomach, or intestinal absorption trouble. Testing B-12 serum levels may be helpful, but results may be skewed by instances of; dysbyosis, (sometimes excessive B-12 analogues are formed but are not usable), a troubled liver may be expelling B-12, or autobodies may be causing a large release of B-12 into serum. A serum test reveals status of active and inactive B-12, and the active form is most desirable. But still, its the best we have, with that understanding.
Many patients and researchers believe that the normal range should be higher than it is now. Here in the US, the normal range is, 193-982 pg/ml. Some people only feel well at levels above 1000 pg/ml. Some researchers feel that the normal range should include 600-2000 pg/ml. Some people respond well with monthly injections, and others combine them with daily sublinguals. I'm still finding my own range, so I'm taking between 2500 -5000 mcgs. of sublingual methyl B-12 daily. When beginning therapy, it is recommended that dosage should be more frequent and or higher initially, then may be reduced after a month. Potassium levels should be observed because they may drop due to new blood cell formation. I hope this may provide relief for you.
I have not been on here lately because believe this or not I am over 60 doctors that tell me various things. I was healthy almost 2 years ago this july and I got bit in my yard and was also exposed to toxic waste from sewer and exposed to rat and mice feces and rotted vegatation. I sat in an unclean doctors office, everything I can think of from being healthy to my state now. I broke out in hives after the bite, then sores started to spread, I went to the doctor who gave me sulfa, I am allergic to sulfa. Sulfa and sulfer are not the same thing right?
Anyway I was tested for mrsa, 2 times negative, lymes by blood test 2 times negative, scraped for scabies nothing , then biopsied and they found on my arms squamous cell carcinome, my legs are horrible they called that post inflamatory hyperpigmentation but from what? Why did my legs get dark brown spots and scales, my back looks like acne scars and still red sores but nothing. Saw a psyphologist he said they are not stress sores. They come sometimes these spots 3 in a row to 15 in a rown all brown spots all over my body. I did have what I thought was ringworm til my face got bells palsy. My biggest concern is what this is and why I had clear lungs now I do not. Can it be fungal ? My concern is Cachexia.
I am 5'1 and weigh now 100 pounds. I look anorexic. I want to live and no doctors really want to help me. So I am here no other place, I am trying to alkalize my body for the squamous cell, I do not know what to use for an anti-fungal and or parasites like hulda says parasites causes cancer but also fungus causes cancer. So how can I treat this all at once and regain my health. I do not know where to get black walnut ground fresh cloves and there was one more for anti-parasitic. Garlic for fungal, and what else do I need. What vitamins will bring back muscle tone? There is someone on the net selling vitamins for cachexia but I know someone will know here.
Also phil from dearing posts a lot here. On the news here local news, many people getting sores in Augusta, and no doctors can diagnose it, it wa broadcast on WRDW News. Many here walking aroung with unknown sores. I have no fibers, sometimes black granules but they may be small scbs underneath the scab. I threw almost everything away and matresses, clothes all in plastic bags just in case. How do I get rid of the brown thick spots? My skin is ruined bad and no one ever had this in my family.. Where can I find the answer to my post on latest posts. Ted I send everyone I know here. I believe the Lord had this site for all who do not want radiation, chemo, or any illness from any diseases. My ph is still 6.5 so should I do 1/2 teaspoon full 2 times a day and get magnesium and potassium. Should I add the apple cidar vinegar. Please help me get better. I am sick of being sick. God Bless You all.
