Sylvia mentioned FMS on Montel
Did anyone hear it?
caught the tale-end of the show. I wanted to hear what she had to say about the woman whose father was found stabbed and burned in the trunk of his car. Did I zone out or something or did they go to commercial, come back and didn't say a word about it?? Sorry I missed any mention of FMS
on his show. She says to eat protein and it will help.
I missed it, but have heard her say before eat protein thing.
I saw most of the show. A woman stood up and asked what was wrong with her and Sylvia said it was fibromyalgia. She told her to "juice greens" and eat more protein. Does anyone juice greens here?
Today on Montel:
He said it took him ten years and many, many, many doctors to get properly diagnosed for his illness.
Many of us have gone through the same thing, including me.
JMHO. Easy for her to say juice greens and eat protein. I didn't know she was an MD, too.
If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and talks like a duck, then it is a duck.
Quack, quack, quack!!!
(No offense intended!)
But isn't it odd how all these so-called psychics are just rolling in the $$$$'s?
Up here in the woods, we get Montel at 2pm, I will attempt to concentrate long enough to see what everyone else saw...
I have seen several shows on audience members saying they have FMS and her answer is always 'eat protein'...
I have some issues with psychics and how much $$$$$ they make off some of their 'believers' but I do BELIEVE in some, Sylvia is one...
Having said that, funny after 13 years of so-called 'experts' telling me to exercise, get sleep (yeah right) and take anti-d's and I would feel better PLUS running 400 tests because they were SURE it was diabetes, cancer, hiv, thyroid,etc...I was never once told to eat protein YET when I do go on South Beach or Protein Power, ridding the breads and starches and junk, I do relieve many of my symtpoms...Not a cure by no means but my body and mind feel healthier...
Sooooooooooooooo, is she onto something??? Being that we don't know what causes it and we certainly don't have the cure, could it be the KEY? I dunno...
Montel suffersfrom MS and after years of suffering and almost doing away with himself, I understand he only sees a specialist in Sweden?, Switzerland? (somewhere like that and he smokes marijuana for the symptoms...I'm guessing here, but is that Sylvia's advice? He looks better to me, he still works and more importantly, he is still HERE...
Sounds like he's onto something...
I am beginning my protein thingee this Friday and if it takes my hubby to shove a sock in my mouth every time I want a 'treat', that's what he will do (Gotta feeling he's gonna love this) But since I have been sick, I have gained weight, some has to do with what I eat, I make some bad choices, but mostly has to do with the inactivity...
So I will eat more protein and more importantly cut out the 'garbage' and I will forego the $500 fee that Sylvia charges for a 1/2 hour phone reading (years from now) and saute a chicken cutlet...tehe
It may be that easy...Don't know til we try...
Peaceful days ahead~Alicia
PS. Forgot to mention...When Sylvia mentions to FMS sufferers to eat protein, she says it like she means it...EAT MORE PROTEIN...PERIOD...No speech, no drugs, no supplements, no tests, just 3 simple words...And she doesn't make money off of the advice either...Just my take on it...She doesn't look the healthiest of the bunch, but she's loaded and doesn't have FMS, or did she?
Sylvia say several times on today show that she was not a dr..she said talk to you dr..I am not a dr..but..
I don't like the fact that so much $$$$ are involved either..but who knows maybe she does some good things with the money...maybe I should check into that!
For the woman with FMS, eat protein. She said she recommends juicing and to drink anything with "green" in it *some ppl take a shot of wheatgrass daily for health benefits, for example).(She didn't say to "juice greens")(Wow, we needed HER to tell us that???)
This was on a couple of weeks ago, so I am sure the episode will be on again soon.
I do not agree with all she says...but I just wanted to clarfiy what she said.
