I would love more information on the natural alternative.
I was reading an arthritis forum, and you mentioned natural anti-inflammatory supplements. I would love to know what those are. They just started me on Meloxicam because Diclofenac stopped working. I really don't want to take these drugs but the pain is getting worse as I get older and the disease progresses.
Just a quick note to say hi! I tried to add you as a friend but I don't think I was successful. If I wasn't, maybe you could add me? I very much like what you have to say. Thank you.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hello, my name is Susie, I am the community lead of the Undiagnosed Symptoms forum. I want to thank you for your very knowledgeable answers that you are giving to the posters. Wow, I am learning a lot from you as well. My main doctor in the states was a Naturopath, I miss her, they don't use them much in New Zealand and the ones that are here, sure are not like mine back home in the states. I hate being at the mercy of the MD's, all they know are drugs for the most part, I hate drugs, I know at times, they are necessary, but if a person takes the right supplements and eats a good diet, they won't be needed. I love studying natural medicine and use to work in a health food store many years ago back home. Anyway, thanks again, I am sure the posts are helping.

You deserve a big bear hug!
Was wondering if you could share what you know of biologics for AS. I see a new doc today but I'm terrified of going onto a stronger one a second med....had a bad allergic reaction. I know there has to be natural ways to reduce inflammation & pain but my PMD says I'll be crippled without biologics. Please share your thoughts.
I'm so sorry to bother you once more, but you are the only person whom has been willing to help me. I replied to your last post on my wall, as I got new results. Could you possibly help? Thank you!
Thank you for all of your help, I posted my levels with ranges to my post. Thanks again!
I hope you don't mind...I have a question and I think you are the perfect person to ask.
My son, who is 6 months old is having a very difficult time with teething.
I've read that it's not such a good idea to use baby oragel.
Traditional teething methods seem to be too painful for him.
He's got about 4 coming in at the same time.
I don't remember my daughter having this hard of a time.
Maybe because she didn't have her first tooth until she was nearly 12 months old?
My mom has suggested rubbing 'Oil of Clove' diluted with water
(so it doesn't burn his mouth) on his gums.
I wanted to know what you thought and if you knew of any natural remedies I could run past his Pediatrician as well.
Thank you so much for your time!
I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season.
Hello~I want to thank you for all the informative answers you give in the "Undiagnosed Symptoms" forum. I am sure you are helping others immensely.
thank you so much for replying to me!! Any advice helps out loads because its a big struggle. thanks again
Thank you for your response to my question, I really appreciate it! If you haven't checked it out, you may find the Weston A. Price an interesting organization. I think there may be a chapter around your part of the country as well. Have a great day!!!
Hi, I'd really like it if you replied to my post!
I am experiencing weight loss of 30 lbs, pain in my chest and extremities, fatigue and distorted vision. I also have swollen nodes in my neck groin and armpit. Doctors cannot find out what is wrong with me. I am so afraid. I thought I have taken every measure to rule out HIV conclusively. Has you ever heard of something like this?
Thank you for everything!
Thank you for replying to my post in Nov. I am on meds to lower my TSH. While doing IVF cycles and pregnant my RE requires my tsh to be 2 or below. I am currently taking double the dose I took with my daughter. I am very grateful for your suggestions. I know I will be weaning off the prednisone very soon and my body is probably going to hurt worst. I stopped the lovenox and aspirin because of sub chorionic bleeds threatening miscarriage. I have some sort of blood clotting disorder. Can't remember if it's protein C or S, I have a double gene mutation for MTHFR and there is thought that my body wasn't holding onto pregnancies because of NK cells.. That's why the prednisone.
Again, thank you for your time and suggestions
Thank you for your excellent post in the Improve MH forum. I knew there was an ownership change but didn't know the "who" behind it. Knowing more about the new ownership enlightened me considerably...LOL I couldn't agree with you more! Considering my exit as well~
Hello, can you please help me out ?
Thanks for taking the time
God bless you
You seems to be a very special person
Just a quick note to say hi! You are a really helpful person and I would like to thank you for the trouble you have taken to answer my queries.
Yes...please tell me what are the doctors names you said you had, in Ohio? I am on Medicaid right now, as a senior on limited income. Do they take Medicaid?
Please review my question and reply if possible. Thank you.
Thank you for everything!
You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today.
Just a quick note to say hi!
This man knows his medical terms!!! He helped calm my nerves with kind words!!!
Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful reply to a complete stranger reaching out :)
Thank you. I do remember and I made it through. Today I had a realization. I want to have control and sometimes that isn't possible. May God bless you

I have worked every day though all of this I'm so worn out I'm a hairdresser of many years and I own my salon and everyone is helping me so much but everything is still riding on my ability to keep it going. Been single for 12 years I had just met someone I thought was important. But he quickly left when all this got really bad for me. Sounds like I'm feeling sorry for my self but I've tried to stay positive and keep going. Life sure hands out some hard times .finding this site has Been a lifesaver for me and people like you sure do help me everyday . Will check out the fibro site ...diane
