I've tried one doc off the internet, one over the phone and one driving 3 hours to see him and he said he could "cure" me. To me, I've noticed they all have the same protocol, testing and supplementation and they all have the answers. This one I'm currently working with specializes in child with autism, I'm getting frustrated b/c I feel he's not researching the past appointments we've had, he's just supplementing me to no end and I explained this yesterday. I'm trying his protocol again, so far I'm just taking probiotics, prenatal (even though I'm not preggers, I need all the vitamins I can get) olive leaf extract, cod liver oil. I was told I have "bad bugs" in my gut a strain of bad bacteria that should not be there which is probably giving me my inflammation. I would love to pop antibiotics to rid myself of the "bad bugs" but the naturopath as we know do not believe in it, so I'm doing the olive leaf extract. I'm so frustrated to no end, b/c no one has the answer. I've spent over $30,000 in doctors, supplements, treatments you name it, I bought it.
I'm just believing one day I will wake up and the inflammation will be gone. No uc meds at this time. I go to the bathroom fruquently in the AM, PM I'm doing pretty good, durning the day, I'm fine, but it seems like the build up starts in the morning and continues all day and then I erupt in the morning. Call me Linda Volcano.
