Re: Homeopathic Doctor

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Well I saw my new doctor yesterday, what a dish emoticon spent 2 1/2 hours with him just talking about my health issues. He was amazing, so patient and wanted to know everything, unlike 10 minutes with my usual doctor. Anyway the conclusion is my digestive system is not working properly, my pancreas is working overtime. My liver is sluggish and all this is probably having an effect on my leg problem, my sleep, my emotional state, my hormones etc, etc. That is it in a nutshell but obviously there was a lot more to it. Lots of great advise on what to do and what not to do. Some chinese medicine, some herbal medicine, some acupressure on my ears. Acupressure on my hands and feet. He wants to concentrate fully on my digestive issues first. He wants to see if getting that balanced helps the leg at all. If not then we will look into other treatments for that. I had to write down all my concerns and he touched on all of them explaining why they might all be connected and for the first time in months, I felt as if something at last made sense. He sat down with me, explained things fully, drew diagrams of my digestive system and how each one of my organs could be causing problems with the others.

I had to be honest with him and tell him everything. He asked about my family history and if I had any children. I mentioned about Matthew and how he had died at the age of 19. He asked me how I had coped with that, if I had had any counselling and how I felt about it now. A lot of emotion came out and he has suggested that I might still have some issues with this, so wants to try some relaxation treatment with me. I have terrible sleep problems and always have had since Matt died. I wake up early with my heart pounding and with a real feeling of trepidation, he feels this could be from not really dealing with the loss of Matthew. In my heart I feel he could be right, but have never really admitted it to anybody before.

He looked at my diet and said it was pretty healthy but things like having yogurt and fruit for breakfast, although good and healthy were cold and at the moment that was not good for my digestive system. So warm cereal, oatmeal anything like that. No salad for lunch, but soup and a sandwich, again because it is warm. Because my digestive issue has been going on for quite some time now, I suspected that I was not absorbing vitamins and minerals properly, which he agreed with. I told him that I was juicing to get around this, so now was this not a good thing to be doing because it was cold. He said the juicing was good and to continue with it, because it would take the pressure off my digestive system, but to have a hot cup of tea after. So again pretty good sound advise, which makes sense.

So last night John and I sat and chatted about my visit and for the first time in a long time I felt relieved. I have felt so frustrated over this but at last I have something positive to work towards. Someone who has given me good sound advise and some hope, not just some pills and go away.

    Interesting! Certainly our emotions are connected to our physical self and I am glad he had some concrete suggestions on what you may try to do about it. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Oh Lynn even I feel the postiveness from this. Oh I am praying he has solutions. You know the chinese never have cold drinks with their meals but green tea. It helps with digestion. They must know something.
    I hope with the relaxation techniques that you can work through those unresolved issues. I don't think a parent ever gets over the passing of their child but learns ways to deal with the sadness and loss.
    I am also saying a prayer for the dr who had the patience and understanding to help you. emoticon emoticon
