Thanks Sue I'm going to check it out. I spent some time this morning on some sites that brought up things I never related to our disorder. A big thing I read about is a possible internal problem with yeast. Apparently "they" say it could be a major reason for our malabsorption of vitamins. I am vitamin D deficient and not only live in FLA but garden so much. Will we ever figure out all the contributing factors? I tire of thinking about it and then get a burst of energy to research some more.

Take care, Patsie

Hi Patsie

I know what you mean.  I have several books, internet, and am always researching.  Sometimes I think I do it  because I think it makes me feel better . Wow, Vitamin D decficient? ,  and my dr just told me he cant believe that mine is quite above normal, and I have osteoporosis and live in Michigan where the sun does not shine for weeks on end.  I also read that candida (yeast problems) cause havoc with Fibro.  I started taking a probiotic a few weeks ago (its a capsule you can get at any cvs), as they said this can help clean out any yeast in the colon, vaginal area.  I have spent enough money on this dumb condition, but am always searching for an answer

Take care

Sue

Hi Sue,

Is this site you mentioned part of the Dominie Bush series? I am not positive who she is but found her while perusing for info on Fibro and have found her writings thus far very interesting. I better get the probiotic too, what the heck is one more supplement:):)

We have a member here, Ginny, who is an authority on Candida overgrowth and has been treated for it along with her fibro. You might want to ask her about your yeast questions.

Be careful with anyone who is telling you that Fibro is "one thing". We have some pretty heavy duty university studies (including U of M, Sue) working on this disorder and although we show deficiencies in several areas, they are symptoms of the underlying problem. There is still no etiology or causative factor that can be pointed at for fibro... This is why so many different approaches are being tried and why so many quacks are getting rich off of us! mad

 Hi Sue,

  I am not familiar with the probiotic you are using, but hope it is working well.  The one I use is made by UAS labs ("Innovite" in Canada).  It contains acidophilus, bifidus, and FOS.  It is refrigerated which means you are getting live bacteria, like you do in yogurt, so it will be much more potent than one off the shelf.  The FOS is food for the bacteria to help the good flora in the gut grow.  I really like this particular brand.

  I read your post on the towelettes.  Just wanted to say thanks for posting it.  I e-mailed the company to learn more.  Re. essential oils, I love peppermint oil all by itself as well.  It works great to rub on for pain or headaches.  NOW brand worked well for me.  I tried the Frontier brand but it did next to nothing besides smelling nice.  Both are available at local health stores.

  There is a site that is by a chinese herbalist - sensiblehealth or something like that.  You can google to find it.  Customer service is very balanced, caring, knowledgeable.  I use their products and have had life changing success with them (chinese bitters and gold coin grass.)  Thought you might like to check it out.  They have a very intresting perspective on how fibro. begins and what the symptoms are related to.  (I e-mailed and asked them about what they thought caused it/how to address it.)  Detoxification has proven to be key in my case.  But again, I had to find products that worked - many companies market 'detox' products but are not necessarily hitting the mark where it counts.  AIM'S barleylife is a product I find very good in this regard.  So I stick with these two things.

  Candida diet and cleanse helped me as well.  But I weakened my body in the long run because I stayed on it way too long and antifungals are very hard on the body.  It's best to keep the cleanse to a few months or just listen to how much your body can handle/needs.  Years on it are not necesssary nor wise.  Just wanted to mention that as a word of caution in case you decide to try a candida cleanse at some point.

  Natural route has worked for me.  I take no meds., except the occasional tylenol and have cut my pain/fatigue levels in half or maybe more just using herbs, supplements, diet, rest, stress management (still working on the last one!)   :-)   

   I don't come by the forums much anymore, but stop by from time to time to read, so would be happy if you would keep sharing any more helpful links/products here.

   all the best, manyembers
