Thanks for thinking of me! I have not been posting lately, the last month has been a challenge for me. 2 weeks ago I was introduced to a new treatment, low dose Naltrexone. This medication is used to treat drug/alcohol addiction at the High 50 mg. dosage. Studies have been done at Low Dose 1-3mg. and it is proven to help Crohns, Fibromyalgia and PAIN. My old Boss the M.D. Homeopath, told me about it and with my PM Dr. we decided to try it. I'm not sure if it is working, I have been able to cut my PM by 1 pill. The only side effect I've had is severe fatigue from 2pm on. Normally in the morning it takes 2 hours for me to be able to move, since the 3rd day its a mere 30 minutes. They told me it would take 2-3 weeks to know if it is working, I'm not sure if working means totally eliminating PM or cutting it down as I am.
When you start Homeopathic treatment, think of it as peeling an onion....layer by layer you're working through lots of stored data. Every event in you life has built the onion, now the Homeopathics are working to eliminate the memories, layer by layer. I always used to tell my patients to make a list of all your symptoms no matter how small, put the list in a safe place.....60-120 days from now pull the list out and you will see how many improvements have occured. Sometimes, our problems are soooo big that we don't notice the little things that have gotten better.
I'll be posting soon and THANKS for thinking of me!!
Hi Char, Skeye and PA, thanks for your thoughts and hugz!! I am very hopeful, I did speak with the Compounding Pharmacist today and she is very very happy with my results so far. She said even if I am unable to d/c the PM totally, my improvements are promising and may get better as I stay on the LDN! Wouldn't that be wonderful....I have been dealing with PAIN since the fusion in 2000, so I think I would actually do a cybersomersault (lol) if more relief is headed my way.
Skeye I also journal, noone understands how powerful a tool this is unless they actually journal as well. I am so glad your MD H is changing your remedy, keep him informed because as you peel the onion, sometimes you need a different remedy to pull you through that layer. It takes time and you are very realistic in your expectations. Keep BELIEVING! Have you read You can Heal your life by Louise Hay or Healing with the Angels by Doreen Virtue? Both of these will help you keep your faith strong!
Sending warm hugs and lots of love to all of you!
I LOVE to read too! Same thing on this end, I have a stack screaming at me lol. I had the you can heal your life book for 2 years before I finally read it, I did it in spurts, it makes total sense. Healing with the Angels was very powerful for me, this has been my salvation. I have this on CD, truly use the affirmations and communicate daily as directed in the book! My belief is strong and my life has changed because of it!! My problem with reading is body mechanics, sitting with a book on my lap wears out the neck quickly, if I lay down to read I inevitably fall asleep. So, I usually end up using a pillow on my lap which does help, my concentration level is short due to the pain!
I don't journal everyday either, but whenever I need to vent I go running for it. I also have a wish box, that is stuffed with my requests, hopes and dreams! There are so many positive ways to keep us going even in our worst moments!
Have a good day everybody!
I agree with you, I don't agree with everything either. Alot of what she writes does make sense! Have you read Ask and It Is Given by Esther Hicks? The book is overwhelming and opens a very interesting way of looking at life...I read this in small doses....I get the CD's from her Meetings....interesting concept for sure!
Hope you are doing okay!
