You are so right! We have to take control over our own health. We only get 15 min with our MD's most of the time. They only know what we tell them.
I hope naturethroid works for you. I think I tried that one too. I wish it was as easy as a one treatment fit all but it seams we are all different.
I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years and signed up for yoga teacher training at the age of 40. Last spring before I was diagnosed. Exercise has always made me feel better. Now I know why. Unfortunately exercise did not remove the bacteria from my body. It just kept my symptoms down. School started in October and it has been tough going. I think the Power vinasa yoga, kiatsu, breathing, nia and diet are all a big part of why I am doing as well as I am doing. (I am tring to look at this in a positive light)
I can't even imagine what shape I would be in without all of it.
I think that treating the symptoms is helpful for comfort but I want to treat the cause. I am always asking What dose this do? Why are you recommending this? My oriental medicine/naturopath doctor thinks I should go to medical school. LOL I think she is just being nice. I have scrambled brains at the moment.
