This forum is a blessing isn't it? I was on two others before I found this one and they were very slow and one was so annoying because there was this guy on there who was having success with the Gupta program and anytime anyone posted anything at all, he would always reply with "Get off all that medication crap and get with the Gupta program. It's miraculous, blah, blah, blah" and on and on about this program and when I looked it up, it's a dvd you can purchase for $200 but I still have no idea what the program is and if it was so great, why this guy wouldn't just tell us what to do. Right before I left that forum, I asked him if he sold the program or got some kickback for referrals. He didn't answer. Anyway it was annoying and I almost gave up thinking that people with fibro/cfs must just be too exhausted to participate in forums. Sooo happy to find this one. Speaking of programs, I have been trying to follow some of Dr. Lapp's Stepwise program http://www.drlapp.net/resources.htm#Stepwise%20Approach I have an appt. with Dr. Lapp in October but I'm probably going to cancel it if I get accepted into the Duke research study on Thursday. So what was the question? Oh, accupuncture. I haven't tried that yet but I'm going to. I have heard others have had good results. I have had a great experience with my chiropractor but just this particular one--I went through four others before I found him. I also started on magnesium but haven't found the malic acid yet. I'm hoping to have the strength to pop in the GNC store today. Boy, I want a nap, but alas I must shower for work.
