Has anyone tried Bee-stings? I have CD and for the most part ...gone the conventional Dr. route...however, my Brother has MS and swears by the more natural route... Bee's, accupuncture, vitamin supplements.... I'm starting to really re-think over the counter drugs. So, many side effects. So many options that eventually are ruined. I guess looking back ...your in a life threatening flare and you go through the ropes of drugs your Dr. prescribes without even thinking....what are these doing? It's all very scary what drugs you trust your doctor to prescribe and then down the road... find it may have damaged you more. Worrying about....food, allergies, preservatives, bacteria, colds, flu's, rashes, liver enzymes, c-diff, yada yada..soooo overhelming.
My joint pain really bothers me most days. I haven't gotten diagnosed with a title of arthritus yet because...once I'm diagnosed..I'll have to take another drug. The pain is so bad somedays I just whine and cry. Kinda wasted days. I ended up taking a leave of absence from my job because of all together feeling swelled and yucky every day! Just trying to weigh out my choices.
GI doctor says to take Glucosamine. I remember reading somewhere one time that Glucosamine is (Glucose).. total sugar. What oil's are joints ...adrenalin...what makes adrenalin.....SUGAR!!!! taking Glucosamine is like putting sugar in your body that "oil"!! your joints ....well it will work!.. but your chances of getting diabetes down the road rises significantly
Anybody ever hear of this happening?
