Something for which you need a recommendation and a trip to a dispensary.

What happened to this site? Does nobody remember the talk of weaponized mycoplasma, and stealth viruses? Dr Garth Nichols ring a bell?

You can only test the new engineered, accidentally (or naively) let loose pathogens in a dozen or so labs around the world. Don't expect to find results by asking your general doctor.



Do you have a link for this story please

Yes, as a matter of fact the first thing the wife and I both noticed was better sleep. Energy levels soared and my Ibuprofen use dropped by 80% (and I was taking a lot). As I've told people for the past six years I couldn't develop enough energy to get out of my own way. I've gotten more done in the past three months (we live on a small farm) than I've gotten done in the past three years. That is not an exaggeration. The wife began going through menopause last year and the hormone discombobulation was driving us both nuts. She began to take an herbal supplement that helped but she raves about what the Lugol's has done for the problem. I don't care what the problem is I've come to the conclusion that the remedy is getting back to the basics i.e. nutrition, both vitamins and minerals. My grandson is in the 82nd Airborne and was here for a visit a month ago. I noticed that he had a shaving rash (psuedofolicullitis) and after seeing this Lugol's cause a sebaceous cyst to disappear on my neck I suggested that he try the Lugol's. No more shaving rash and the kid could sings songs about Lugol's. Try it you won't be sorry.

Do you happen to be double-jointed or hypermobile?

Then I would insist that you try to heal yourself from a more natural angle.

Several supplements are particularly important for boosting the collagen in the skin and rebuilding elasticity. Vitamin C, MSM, aloe vera, gelatin and hyaluronic acid all help replenish collagen and restore skin firmness. Apple cider vinegar and honey as well as vitamin D are also important for restoring the balance of nutrients in the body. Additional elements of a holistic treatment plan include diet and exercise. Maintaining a healthy diet of whole foods and avoiding sugar can alleviate general pain associated with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Yoga and other stretching activities can also tighten and realign the body’s structure and relieve pain.

Most people who have this also have food allergies, so it might be helpful in trying to find what you are consuming that you might be allergic too and to stay away from those foods to mitigate symptoms like fibromylagia.

Not sure if it's been mentioned but, make sure you get off of all aspartame.

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a few years back, and being a nurse, I also believed it was a waste basket diagnosis. I wrote a thread here shortly after about having enormous relief after seeing a NUCCA chiropractor and being diagnosed with a cervical subluxation (partial dislocation of the neck) which he worked to realign. I had no idea at the time that it was only one clue to my actual diagnosis.
It was finally last year that my GI doctor noted that I had Mast Cell Activation Disorder after finding an abundance of mast cells throughout my GI tract. It causes all kinds of rashes, allergic reactions, and stomach symptoms. It was then that he tested me for hypermobilty since MCAD is commonly found in conjunction with Ehlers Danlos. I had never even heard of it!
I was sent to a Geneticist who sent me for targeted gene testing after reviewing my history and doing an exam. Tall thin frame, check. Extra flexible, check. Family history of aneurysms, check. Birth defects, check. I was amazed that doctors had missed it my whole life. I was a textbook case of EDS. No wonder I complained of "joint pain", I had been suffering from chronic dislocations and subluxations my whole life!

Anyhow, the genetic testing confirmed that yes, it was Ehlers danlos, which in turn saw me referred to the Cardiologist. Turns out I also have POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) which also goes hand in hand with EDS. Basically, it causes you to have low blood pressure and a ridiculously high heart rate when standing up causing fainting. Great! But at least all the pieces of the puzzle are finally in place and I am finally getting the medical care I really needed all my life. I have some great specialists on my team that have worked really hard to get me to where I am today.

I write all this because it took nearly 40 years for doctors to discover my true illness. EDS is nothing to write off. It cripples and it kills. It is considered rare, but researchers are begining to believe that it is just rarely diagnosed. If you have a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, please don't stop digging. Pain is a sign that something is wrong in your body. Find out what the cause of it is. It may be chronic Lyme, it may be small fiber neuropathy, it may be EDS, or it may be something totally different. Only you know what you experience and what your everyday symptoms are. I had no idea that my ability to bend myself into a human pretzel was a major clue to my condition. Sometimes what seems normal to us is not so normal after all.
