A New Direction?

Between this post and my last, I am having the worst Fibromyalgia flare I've experienced. The good news is that I'm mending. The new and unusual sensation I experienced with this flare was a feeling inside my head. It felt like a wave from the top of my head to my chin. It also throbbed as it was going from top to bottom. Felt like I would pass out. Never had that sensation before and would rather not experience it again.

I saw my Chiropractor this week for the purpose of investigating a new program they offered. I can't tell you the name of the program, as I forgot to ask. This procedure is difficult to explain. The Chiropractic office has a practicing married couple, John and Billie Suto. I've mentioned Dr. Billie before. This day I saw them together. Drs John and Billie believe that Fibromyalgia is a term the medical community puts on a problem that they are unable to diagnose. They believe that the prescriptions I'm on are toxic and that my Fibromyalgia symptoms are caused by environmental and domestic issues such as chemicals, metals and foods. They tested me by placing a package of such issues on the trunk of my body and asked me to match the doctor's resistance with my hand to his. The result, as Dr. John put it was that I "was a mess." I have food allergies to wheat, oats, milk and eggs. I have alot of bacteria throughout my body, which is being fed by the sugar I digest (What?!!! No more chocolate?). Because of these "issues" I am having trouble with my thyroid, spleen, intestinal tract, female organs and central nervous system. They believe my body is being poisoned (my word) from these "issues." Hence my body has the symptoms that the medical community diagnosed as Fibromyalgia. I can either walk away and be frustrated that they "don't understand" me or the disease or accept this as an attempt to feel better. I'm going to to go with the positive and hope it doesn't end up another attempt that fails. I see them again next week. I will keep you posted.
