I have compassion for all those who are going through pain and am here to lend some helpful information that I learned on my journey of health.
A little background, I developed pain in all parts of my body that came on strong and for no reason in my early 20's. I would rest and eat healthier but it would take weeks to go away and then return under normal circumstances. I saw a doctor and they offered no help other than pain killers. So, I started doing yoga and dietary changes and that helped some. I started taking Epsom salt baths and that helped more. But I still had pain and fatigue and so I saw a multitude of doctors, chiropractic, allopathic, naturopathic, holistic, TCM and others. I even went to live in a Yoga ashram for 2 years and ate most every type of diet including vegan, vegetarian, paleo, and other food combinations. I have tried most every remedy here and can say they all helped me in some way, but I still had pain. So, I have learned how to heal myself with the following things, but the pain comes back when I don't live a healthy balanced life.
Here are the common ones that helped me and then later some that are not mentioned here:
First, I eat mostly fresh organic foods and exclude toxic foods. It also helps when I am sleeping well, laughing often and letting go of the past. Exercise is mandatory for my health as is drinking lots of pure water. After those here is what helped me most.
1) Epsom salt bath with essential oils and candles. This will help manage the pain more than most anything else. The body is full of toxins and needs to be cleaned in salt water. Best taken alone in clean, chemical free water with 2-4 cups of salt. Use Epsom salts, baking soda, sea salt and others. Add a few drops of 1-3 different essential oils, use your personal favorites, I like bergamot and cedar. Place at least 4 candles around the tub with 1-2 at each corner, I use 8 of the tall glass church candles and don't leave this part out!!! Do 2-4 times a week and spend at least a half hour in the tub, but 1-2 hours is better. Listening to music and practice deep breathing.
2) Talking a walk in Nature to clam the mind and rebalance the stress response. Enjoying natural beauty is the key to any health issue and often left out. Ground with bare feet is awesome and though it may not fee like much at first, it will increase in benefit over time.
3) Trying only one new remedy at a time. Only introduce one thing per week or even better per month and test to see if it noticeably changes your health. This is very important and must be followed to know what works and what does not. Otherwise it will all be confusing and moat likely never be clear what helps and what hurts. This was recommended by a wise old doctor and totally helped me to take control of my own health journey.
Good luck and keep going, it will get better for you soon.

The other remedy that I take is wormwood tincture. I took this years ago for parasites after reading Hulda Clark's book. I took it for a couple of years and it made me feel better but I stopped after I built the zapper. After that my symptoms gradually became worse. I took some a little while back and some symptoms went away. One of my symptoms is a cramped up colon which keeps the food I eat from going on through. When I take the wormwood first thing in the morning in warm water it opens up my gut and helps everything to move through more smoothly like it should. This helps out with the prevention of Candida and makes other remedies work better. So wormwood has uses other than parasites. Because this is an herb it cannot be taken with guaiphenesin so I take a few days of it and then I switch.
One other thing I do that really helps is to take a bile salt supplement first thing in the morning with plenty of warm water. This can be taken with either the wormwood or guaiphenesin. Bile is the body's natural remedy for Candida and this is why I think it works so well. If you are thinking of trying this don't order a 500 mg ox bile as this is way too strong to be taken on an empty stomach. Buy 125 mg and work up from there by taking one more capsule until you find your tolerance and as I said take it with plenty of warm water.
Movement for me is as important as any remedy so I do some light yoga and I walk. It may start out painful but the pain goes away as I move. If I sit too long it gets painful again. Sleep is also a very important remedy for me so to make sure I get some deep sleep I take GABA, B12, and melatonin as well as holy basil at bed time. I sometimes take alpha lipoic acid at bed time. The GABA is pure powder and the B12 is liquid with folic acid. The melatonin is in liquid.
Other supplements I take are L-Lysine, L-Ornithine, and magnesium chloride. Other remedies I take from time to time is ACV, VCO, Ted's carbi-carb and a tap water conditioner.
I hope this helps some of you with stubborn cases.
