Yeah that reminded me my FatherinLaw kept fainting & getting dizzy & I researched the side effects of the huge list of things he was on & suggested something in particular that may have been causing it....Of course I wasn't a Dr (& worse was the DaughterinLaw), even though his own wife had wondered same things ::) He would only listen to the medical profession, yet they were the ones experimenting on him??!! Must be that same brainwashed generation??!! Eventually Dr's did agree it might have been the wrong meds for him & hello, no more dizziness ::) ??)Quoted from greenmanMy mother had the same problems with fainting.. they just kept throwing different meds at her instead of looking for the reason for the fainting..faint means the bp goes low amongst other issues...Why?? there are loads of reasons dehydration, kidney problems etc try and get every test under the sun carried out..Find out why it happened..if they don't know the why? then how to prevent it again is very difficult
Quoted from JumariI can not thank you all enough.
You know when you really look at the bottom line it comes down to money. Being healthy can be expensive. I just saw a big Mcdonalds poster with a picture of large french fries and an equal symbol to say that it costs $1. Soon after seeing that, my partner and I bought an uncooked organic whole chicken for $17. The free range version was next to it for $12 and the one with no labels was next to that one for $8. We both looked at each other and said "It's so easy to be unhealthy and not give a expletive deleted isn't it, being good costs money".
Quoted Texthis site set up by a doctor is very helpful to me: http://www.pilladvised.com
I have all my supplements entered there and any time a drug is prescribed for me, which is very seldom, I enter it to see if there is any conflict. There are also suggestions about which supplements complement each other. I have found it to be very helpful in many ways. It hasn't led me wrong yet.
Quoted from JumariAB Joe she wants to believe me but I have no real credentials or proof that it will work.
Quoted from ABJoe
I know this feeling... I went through this with my mom and dad. Mom cooks for dad, who is sick and I talked to her about eliminating chicken from his diet to stop strokes... She wanted to, but he kept asking for chicken. After about the 3rd mini stroke, and me asking what meat did he have for the last 2 days, she got the connection. It has now been almost a year without chicken (and stroke symptoms) and he is reacting to other avoids in his diet, which tells me we have moved up 1 small step. Mom is now going to remove all of his major avoid foods...
Sometimes progress is slow, but we do what we can...
Quoted from Dianne
This is a sad and unfortunate truth that it does come down to money and being healthy can be expensive. Also, last year food went up 30%, which requires even more creativity in the kitchen and stretching of our dollars. I opt to buy my own compliant beans to soak, sprout and cook and freeze a month's worth for myself. I was brought up to be very frugal and to not waste food. Leftovers that don't look as if they will get eaten in time go into the freezer in a large container and then I make a hodge-podge soup with it once a month. It is tasty and never the same, but we love it. I once bought a book called : "The Frugal Gourmet" that had great ideas. :-/
Well done for your persistence ABJoe ;)Quoted from ABJoeIt has now been almost a year without chicken (and stroke symptoms) and he is reacting to other avoids in his diet, which tells me we have moved up 1 small step.
