    Has anyone ever heard of or been on the Helen Foundation, Low Dose Therapy?
    I went to seminar on it last week. Sounded logical, they said they have 90% success rate in reducing pain in Fibro cases. They are using very low doses of cotisone and diet therapy. The kicker was a price tag of $3000.00. No insurance because it has not been approved as an accepted protcol by the FDA.
    $3,000 for 6 months and then $100.00 a year after that, would be nothing if it worked and I could throw out my other drugs and suppliments.

    I would get tested for low cortisol before trying that. It could be an unnecessary expense that won't help unless you need the cortisone. It is a hormone released by the adrenal glands.
    Just my opinion, Goodday
