read the spinach and sunflower seed thread on here. It might help you also. Its an easy diet to follow and it helped me a lot. My doc had tried alot of different meds and nothing seemed to be working. Then I tried it and I noticed results almost right away. Isuggest you read the spinach and sunflower seeds success stories thread first, then read the spinach and sunflower seed thread. Its worth a try. It has helped lots on here, not everyone, but lots. And its definately cheaper than meds.
Am not suggesting you quit with "traditional" meds or give up on traditional doctor, but this might just help and give you relief.
