That makes sense, yes. It aligns with how they’re made, too. Similarly, my doctor likened them to vaccines in that pieces of the offenders are used to make them. Something like that, right? I’ve meant to research it a bit more, but I’m a turd.
Anyway, she wants me to trial three tinctures from a company called Energetix. Bacteria-chord, Inflamma-chord, et Hepatic-Tone, taking me off of a series of Beyond Balance tinctures. They’re new to her. She said she’s only been using them on her patients for six weeks.
I’m fine with being an experiment of sorts, as they’re relatively inexpensive, I’ve been interested in homeopathic medicine, and their claimed effects would help me. But, what I’m concerned about
is their lack of antimicrobial effect.
I’m wondering if she’s wanting to give my body a break, as some means of testing me, but I’m not so sure. She’s always seemed really knowledgeable, up until now. It’s never been a push to make outrageous purchases, tons of testing, etc. She’s genuine.
My diet needs work. My gut function isn’t in a good place. She always says my liver and spleen are swollen, which I believe. Detoxing is difficult for me, in between chronic constipation et busy lifestyle. Plus, we both think mold is a huge problem for me and that I need to get out of this house, or she can’t help me get much better, so I’m to try to contact HUD or Hab for Humanity (she claimed to have had patients experience success in a new home or remediation with her help in the form of letters et reasoning for the need).
Still, kind of rubbed the wrong way, especially considering my follow-up is not for five months. Long time. I’m kind of an acute patient, in my mind. I could easily dip in health in that amount of time. I feel like more frequent visits are necessary right now.
Though, I’m going to continue using essential oils, and, truth told, I could just call and order whatever tinctures I’d like, or request an earlier appointment.
I guess I forgot she’s wanting me to give LDN, CBD oil, et another supplement a try, as a certain doctor has said the combination can help. Though, I question the effectiveness, as the CBD recommended does not seem official, you know? I hear about
people in Lyme circles using CBD oil, and it’s a legit oil, in a bottle, and often used in sizable amounts, di ba? She’s recommended 30mg twice daily.
I think she’s a very spur of the moment doctor, in some ways. She’ll hear about
something from such and such doctor - granted, some are ones I’ve heard of, and I’m sure all have their merits - and then immediately seek to implement their suggestions in her own practice. It’s cool, to be on the cusp of what’s new, but kind of dangerous, also. Like I said, five months is a long time to deal with getting worse/not getting better.
I’ll try them, doing my own stuff for awhile, call if I feel I need something more, and work on the gut, detox, et mold situation.
Thanks for the resources at recommendations for where to look here.
