I am likely beginning LDN this coming Monday...My compounder called and said it is ready...I will then bring to my naturopath for muscle testing and likely begin on Monday evening...
I have been on Ativan since December '06 due to a severe reaction to Levaquin and cannot seem to come off now due to PTSD issues...It sucks, but I am down to .5mg every nite and even with multiple suggestions to 'up it', I am going with my gut instinct and keeping it the same and attempting to live with the torturous hospital experience and likely the misdiagnosis of Crohn's colitis (we will see in the future)
So my question is this: Anyone else did LDN and Ativan...I usually take the Ativan at 9:30pm, just when the LDN is suggested to be taken...I also know insomnia and vivid dreams is common but I have to say that since I started and elimination diet of all the foods I have delayed allergies to, I now have insomnia and vivid dreams...
Have I BOOSTED my immune system allready by eliminating what was causing the immune reaction that was causing the rectal bleeding? Beef and dairy are the two big ones and lemme tell you I will never eat such things again...I am most happy that Sage lab uncovered what I suspected and I am glad to omit them from my life Just wish my GI would have tested me years ago when I requested but he just kept telling me what I had had 'no known cause and no known cure' and was DEFINETELY nothing I ate...LIAR!!!
Well, back to my initial question...I tend to get carried away however, it seems the more I do that, the more answers I uncover for myself...After only 3 weeks on the diet I have ZERO bleeding and only pooping once a day, perfectly I may decide to not even begin the LDN but I am trying to work out the poisons from my body of all the years of meds and supps plus the fibromyalgia, atrhitic and inflammtion issues that are still lingering...I would like to be HEALTHY again...what a concept, huh?
My new doc recs melatonin for sleep but I am not so sure he recalls I am on Ativan when he wrote the script for LDN...He is in the same office so I guess I could run it by him but I really wanted some EXPERT advice from all of you
Thanks for reading and as always I wish you all Peace~MamaDove
