Hi to all here........I am searching now for information on a REAL doctor to help my daughter with thyroid problems and/or possible adrenal glands that are not funtioning properly. I am in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area........after 14 years of her being in bed and in horrid pain, I finally figured out her problem.......she had a body full of adhesions!!!!!! And all the doctors in the US had ignored and ignored......we just returned from Germany in April where she had successful surgery for ARD and now she is living again---but, can't lose the 30#'s she gained from being in bed sooooooooo long. She is working out 2 hours a day, strict caloric intake, and no weight loss. We just went to a seminar on BRT and that seems rather way "out there".......so, still trying to find a holistic doc or MD that ignores blood work and gets to the problem at hand....Thanks, my heart goes out to all of you---I read many stories......isn't life frustrating at times (to say the least)?????!!!!!! Keep searching for your answers! It took me YEARS, but now Melissa is well!!!!!!
