    I'm very encouraged about getting help for FM from her. She's ordered a slew of lab tests including thyroid tests that have never been ordered by all the doctors I've seen in the past. She said most doctors don't do this. Also checking all the hormone levels. I do know that after the change (at age 40) I started to go downhill which tells me FM is most definitely related to hormones......that's why the majority are women who have this condition. I go back in two weeks for results.

    She also put me on an immune detox. I read up on this product. It's got peptides and enzymes in it......which I don't understand. And it looks like it's only available thru doctors.

    works out for you and you get some good help. And hoping she did the DHEA labs which integrative MD's do. These are critical and so many don't get this addressed.

    I have a friend looking for an integrative MD in that general area, would you mind mentioning this doc's name.

    On supps that these MD's sell, I often don't buy from them but look for a comparable one at a better price for me. Depending on finances that's how I have to work... thanks.jam

    I've felt the same way about supplements. The doctor I saw in Upland a few years ago (found in Suzanne Somers book) put me on a ton of them. However, when I went online to check I found her price to be exactly what I would have to buy direct so didn't feel she was trying to make $ on them.

    This product she put me on apparently is only sold to doctors. I did a search on the ingredients. She said I should start to feel better and sleep better after a couple of weeks on it.

    She asked if I took cod liver oil and I said yes......peach flavored from Nordic. I told her I didn't want any other because I've still got 3 bottles left.

    Sun - I'm really glad for you! These seem to be the only kind of doctors who have any idea of what's going on with us. Keep us posted.

    Jam - this sounds like a good recommendation for your friend for a doctor. She can also go to acam.org - it's an association of integrative medicine doctors and there's a link under Health Resources on the home page where you can find the names of integrative medicine doctors throughout the U.S. and Canada. Hans Gruenn's office gave me this info.

    I'll pass the link on too, I forget about it....good reminder...

    I don't take cod liver oil at this point in my life, what am I missing. I take fish oil and borage oil.

    Sun, make sure to get lab copies, I always keep them as I've learned how to read them, our time is short at the doc's office and we don't get all comments in.

    HOPEFULLY, if this MD works out and the acupuncture, you can get to feel a lot better....fingers crossed etc.....
