Re: Good show on Dr Oz today!!

I've just read this thread and I wanted to offer another suggestion - Chinese medicine and acupuncture. I just started seeing a dr. of Chinese medicine Feb / March of last year. She was recommended to me by my massage therapist when nothing I was doing for all of my conditions was working. An overall mess with IBS, Chiari, chronic migraines, and brachial neuritis (nerve damage), Dr. D has been a life saver. She works on healing the whole body and balancing my Qi (chi). One of the things she works on with acupuncture and herbs is my spleen function. Apparently my spleen was unhappy because when I started the "happy spleen tonic" herbs, things really started turning around!! I'm feeling better IBS-wise than I have in YEARS. Yes the diet and hypno helped TONS. But the Chinese medicine has been the icing on the cake. I've even managed to gain 5 or 6 lbs.

Just another suggestion you could investigate Aly. Sometimes we have to think outside of Western medicine. Sending big hugs!!!
