Avatar f tn in fact, i will soon not even be taking thyroid meds and managing the disease by diet. Get a T3 blood test. Get tested for gluten intolerence. Do some research on Hashimoto and you will find this is nothing like any other type of thyroid disease. it is more of an auto immune disease. Hope this helps. Believe it or not Hashimoto is the most misdiagnosed thyroid disease and MOST medical doctors (even your endocrenoligist may not know how to properly deal with this disease.
Avatar n tn It worked good for me. As far as diet I started with the Swank diet but think the Paleo Diet has shown more success in threating neurological diseases. As far as the dental thing I had 10 root canals and an assortment of fillings. My gums were bleeding and that was clearly a problem in my case. Everyone must decide this issue for theirself because this is a major decision. I have some information concerning this issue that I will post.
Avatar m tn I’ve seen Lp(a) levels respond to a switch from a standard American or not very healthy diet, to a Paleo type of diet. If you think about it, Lp(a) is there to repair damage, and we’re following a lifestyle that’s causing endothelial damage. It makes sense that changing diet could potentially influence it. Then we have studies that have looked at some natural treatments and found that they’ve been effective to greater or lesser degrees.
2034625 tn?1392646892 Your offer to help is very generous.. Maria, I had all but cut out gluten and sugar from my diet as well on the paleo diet and I loved it. My neuro sent me to a specialist about the high BP I developed on steroids (nearly back to normal BP thankfully) and she sent me to a dietitian. Everyone over here is convinced that as an American I must spend a hours of each day at the local McD's and not have any idea how to eat properly.... hmph!
Avatar n tn Apparently on the MS board they do not even want you to list web sites for good health such as paleo diet, Juicing, fasting, and supplements which can be used to detoxifiy your body. I think it is useless to try and inform people who have had these diseases for a long time. They have come to accept it and choose to live with it.
Avatar f tn So once the results come out, there will be additional medical evidence that this type of healthy lifestyle works. Google the MacDougall diet...and you'll find the website. He also has an interview with Dr. Swank on there. Its very informative. Best to all of you once again. Im sorry if I come off as some kind of promoter of this diet. I wouldnt believe it myself if I hadnt read all of the scientific evidence. There IS hope out there...real hope...see for yourselves.
Avatar m tn It basically points to what many are referring to as a paleo diet although people's definition of that term varies widely. George has summed it up very succinctly above as to what is showing itself to be beneficial to HCV/cirrhosis/fibrosis. Foods with the least amount of processing seem to be the way to go which is not surprising. My husband isn't very compliant with all this but he has shifted heavily towards these chages and even giving that much has shown benefit.
280891 tn?1261016650 He started his research in the 1950's and has had good results. There is web site supporting his diet. The Paleo Diet has also shown success in treating these neurological diseases. If you want to find out why you have MS Hal Huggins has a book "Solving The MS Mystery Help Hope and Recovery". It is my understanding that the earlier in the disease you address the problem the better chance you have of recovery. Is it all about our genes being messed up?
Avatar m tn About the probiotics, I really have no idea if your colony is compromised or not, but the supplement given you is probably not a good one. I know this isn't great to hear, but I managed health food stores for 18 years and worked very closely with holistic practitioners -- I was basically their pharmacist. I met the people who wrote the books (signed, of course!), and was trained by them.
1840891 tn?1431551393 None of my doctors thought the salt water would affect my ascites, even when they put me on a low salt diet. They were wrong. If I got in the ocean, my belly swelled up. Our skin is porous and it does absorb. That is my observation. Obviously it's not as potent as taking something orally but it still can affect you. This would be my concern about the topical ointment you're using.
Avatar f tn Hi, thank you so much for sharing the information. Even though we all may have the same type of disease or disorder (in my case GERD) it can manifest itself almost completely different in each of us. So that’s really key – that we all share our experiences and find comfort that way. I have the EXACT same thing with the bowel movements by the way. I call them episodes. Just this morning actually. Between 6am-7am I went to the bathroom (#1 and #2….

Avatar n tn I've been trying to see a Dermatologist buy they refuse to see me because it's around my eyes. I went to EVERY type of eye doctor and they know that it's not herpes, but they don't know what it is. It got soo bad I started using my Son's cream for eczema (fluticasone prop 0.05% cream) and as long as I use it once every day it keeps it away. If I skip a couple of days it comes back.
Avatar f tn There is also talk on the MS forums that a gluten free diet helps noticeably with their neurological symptoms. Some go so far as the Paleo diet, which is even harder to do than GF, but the testimonials are significant. It won't cure Lyme, but it might help you feel better. Is it worth asking a doctor for Lyme testing? There is also another test that might be helpful...a CD57. It is a particular immune cell that is only known (to ILADS doctors) to be suppressed by HIV and Lyme.
Avatar n tn I too thought it was from sunglasses, which I no longer wear. I've not talked to a doc about this yet. I eat a strict paleo diet and have been for six months. No grains, no sugar. No omega 6 oils. Everything we eat is made from scratch. It has not helped. I can tell you that most of my hormones are tanked so those of you that have not have your hormones tested might want too.
Avatar m tn Wash off your hands with soap. The blood vessels on one side of the nose swell up with blood, on purpose, to close off that side of the nose to air. This gives the cilia in the closed nostril a chance to clean out all the pollution and mucus. When it’s clean, it opens up and the other side is closed to repeat the process. The things that swell up to close your nostrils are called turbinates. Keep this in mind when you are blowing your nose.
Avatar f tn Since I have Hashimoto's, I am currently following a paleo diet and taking supplements to repair my gut (entire digestive tract). The idea is to relieve your body of all inflammation and return to balance. There is such a thing as "remission" (no antibodies) in Hashimoto's disease, so that is what I am doing. I will retest TSH, antibodies, and thyroid sonogram in 6-8 months and let you know if there is any change in my base results.
147426 tn?1317269232 Also, high estradiol with ovarian solid well-circumscribed mas on right ovary vs. a complex cyst---menopause twice. Oncologist is not thinking that the mass is malignant--watching it closely, however.He thinks it's a corpus luteum cyst possibly. If it grows anymore, it will come out. But, anethesia is a concern with my autonomic dysfunction. Main question---what about the demylelinating lesions ONLY in cervical cord??? Can this be MS???
Avatar n tn I have never had any other health problems. I am 35 years old. I had my blood tested for just about everything from west nile virus to lyme's disease with no results. I even had my hearing and eyes tested. Doctor's have said that it is possibly just stress but I don't buy it. I don't feel stressed and why does it come on when I exercise or do heavy work? Isn't exercise supposed to relieve stress? I don't know if I am making it worse by plowing through or if that is the best thing to do.
Avatar m tn bipolar disorder (which responds better to mood stabilizers and is worsened by antidepressants), Alzheimers, schizophrenia (this is more extreme and involves hallucinations), or medical reasons such as low blood iron (though you have said that you had blood tests, low iron can cause dizziness, moodiness, and brain fogs). Good luck!
Avatar n tn I think if you asked a Hepatologist why I relapsed, he would state that because I got the virus from a blood transplant, there was much more virus initially introduced into my blood stream. Then he would state the Biopsy results, stage 3 fibrosis which is Bridging fibrosis and grade 2 inflammation, he would also say that I had a high viral load. Some new data shows people being depressed during my treatment has been shown to lower a person response to tx by lowering the immune system.
Avatar n tn You bring up some interesting things. First have you been thoroughly examined. Are your blood test and vitals all good? Have you had ekg, echo cardo etc? If you had these and the doctors can't put a finger on it then you are probably in the same boat as I and I'm sure many others. I can tell you the episodes should not be coming more frequently and should not be lasting for days so that concerns me.
Avatar m tn Of course, my retinologist would disagree, which leaves me wondering whether they are what you describe. I am what you'd call a type 1 personality, and had quite a stressful run up to Christmas with child in hospital, general SAD, and, after the CSR showed up, the fear I was going blind. The condition, whatever it is, has been stable for a couple of months now, and maybe even on the decline. I'm not on any medication other than lanzoprazil for acid reflux and st. John's Wort.
Avatar f tn Excessively sensitive scalp could be due to scalp inflammation caused due to diet, stress, internal hormonal imbalances or a bacterial/ fungal infection. The symptoms could be severe itching,redness,pimples, oily scalp, flaking, crusting causing bleeding. It could be something more serious like temporal arteritis. This is the inflammation and damage to the large blood vessels that supply the head, usually branching in the neck from carotid artery, usually the temporal artery.
Avatar f tn A MRI of the brain and neck revealed increased areas of signal in the brain not consistent with ms. Blood tests suggest autoimmune disfunction (positive ana, antithyroid antibodies, high IgG for parvovirus and EBV and CMV without being conclusive of connective tissue or thyroid disease. A cone beam ct scan revealed an inflammatory process in the sinus above the implant and apical periodontal inflammation on the tooth behind the implant which was also giving me night fevers.
Avatar n tn maybe the 90 day BC pill keeps that area of the body from having it's typical blood supply. maybe that part of the body is indirectly affected somehow during a normal cycle. i'm not a doc so i don't know. but no one else seems to have an answer. anyway, baby power helps for me.
Avatar m tn I posted this info before, but it was a reply to someone else's similar post... I am a 23 year old healthy male. I recently had a full physical and the results were that I am in above average health. I have no diseases, do not use drugs, but drink on occasion. Anyways, just started noticing these strange symptoms, within the past few weeks. Nothing "brought it on" so to speak that I can tell of.
Avatar f tn The biopsy came back that I had features of Lupus. Then the next step was to take a blood test to make certain that I didn't have Systemic Lupus. The Systemic Lupus was negative. Next, another biopsy was taken. This test is called a Lupus Band Test. I am positive! I have Subcutaneous Lupus Erythematosus. There are medications that place this auto immune disease in remission. I start my treatment today!!
