I have totally climbed out of my box and been to see a naturopath yesterday.
My lovely new general physician doctor has hit a brick wall with investigations. He won't admit he's defeated but he just says he'll follow up in 3 months and see if anything more develops in the meantime!! Like I just need more things to develop right now!!😥
My husbands boss recommended that I go and see the naturopath that he and his wife use. I am not a 'go natural' kind of a person but I bit the bullet and made an appointment. She was really nice and came to the same conclusion as me that I have seronegative lupus.
In the next breath she tells me that she wants to put me on 3 different herbal remedies to combat inflammation and boost the immune system and come back in 3 weeks to see if it has made any difference.
Whoa!! Wait!! Says me. I'm not sure if I'm even ready for this. She has recommended:
Mongolian Seabuckthorn capsules, AV/AT capsules and quercetin powder.
Has anyone here had any experience with these remedies?
I am about as skeptical about natural medicine as I am about conventional medicine. I won't take anything until I'm certain that the benefits outweigh the risks.
On the other hand I am getting desperate. My life is slipping through my fingers. I am having a severe CNS day today! I am in the mood to ring up any doctor I can think of and DEMAND treatment based on symptoms rather than bloodwork! I am very tempted at the moment to make an appointment to see someone like dr graham hughes just so I can be heard. ( I was reading some of his publications last night and he seems to be an oasis in this desert. I know there a lot of people on here with personal experiences. What is he like? I am seriously prepared to come to London from Melbourne, that is how desperate I am!!!😭
Sorry it's combining two things into one post but I'm having a bad day! So there!
