i totally agree! the prices are crazy...and its horrible that people do suffer.
A little piece of mind... i calculated how much i spent at each doctor visit, prescriptions that did nothing of had bad effects on me, as well as hours missed at work and that amount was SIGNIFICANTLY higher than the homeopathic choices. i was not on the meds very long... maybe 5 months. now i just take a calcium/magnisum supplement and one of the homeopathic drops. (costs me about $16 a month) something you can also do is go through the protocol and price it out elsewhere. just an option. Regardless of your choices i truely hope you find some relief in your journey.
I am really glad this helped you, however i check out some of the prices and there is no way we can afford them!! Its a shame that people who have a low income have to suffer, while others do not. The inequity is staggering especially for one of the richest countries in the world!! Why should anyone have to suffer!!
Wanted to share my godsend with everyone! if this helps only one person i would be happy because i know how bad fibro/ cfs can be and how it feels like a never ending cycle.
i have been on a MILLION different types of meds for the fibro. (as well as OTHER things they thought was wrong with me) All of which have side effects that made me question my use of them (like sleepy and foggy). Yes the pain is "better" but its not gone and i was no longer my funny quick witted self. I am new on here and i just want to share what has helped me.
I go to a homeopathic doctor (MD/DO) in ohio that specializes in fibro/chronic fatiuge. he has a protocol of supplements and liquid homeopathic meds that has made me feel alive again. i encourage everyone to at the very least check out his website. (he also has a book.) his name is DR. HAROLD BOWERSOX. they will ship the protocol to you and will answer any questions you have about it. i called almost every day for 2 months with questions... they were SO nice and took the time to explain everything MULTIPE times because i would forget~~go figure~~!! It is a beautiful thing to have my life back.
his website is: http://www.recoverfromfibro.com/
just check it out. i was at wits end going from med to med. being treated for everything and getting nothing but more new problems,stressed out and weak. the protocol changed my life. i feel normal again. and i really forgot what normal felt like. hope this helps someone...it really helped me. www.recoverfromfibro.com/
if you have any questions reply to this post and i will try and answer them to the best of my knowledge.
