Hi Everyone, I study ways to stay healthy. Along the way I studied Neurological symptoms, knowing what I already know about vitamins and minerals I felt that could be a connection with well rounded knowledge. What I found was most if not all of those symptoms had a common deficiency. Something kept sounding wrong though. Then I looked into Acidic Crystals and how too much acid in the body prevents mineral absorption. Not only does it prevent absorption properly it forms acidic crystals that cause`s inflamation and pain. It is my belief these crystals are also associated with Morgellon`s Disease. Fibers mixed with GMO vegatable dna. The fibers could be partly acidic crystals. I also believe these crystals can form anywhere in the body causing Gout, Fibromialgia, Arthritis, ALS and on and on. Why not Shingles also ? It seems to be the real reason minerals are not absorbed, result it opens the door to pain and who knows what else. My own personal experience is Cherries and Milk ( do not drink skim milk ) resolved a real problem. I`ve seen cherry concentrate get rid of Gout in 5 days also. Look into this deeply because I am confident many can benefit with it. It may be just that simple. Garlic can get rid of many infections if that occurs also.
I was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I was first prescribed sulfasalazine but didn't improve on it after 7 weeks. My doc recently switched me to methotrexate and folic acid. She also gave me meloxicam and predisone to take as needed. I have not taken these last two. I've literally been on the methotrexate (4 pills taken one day a week) for 2 weeks. I'm not sure when tot expect it to start showing signs of working. Also, my face started breaking out in the next couple of days after taking the 2nd dose of methotrexate. I am feeling frustrated, and don't want to stop but also don't want to deal with the breakouts. Does anyone have any similar reactions to the medication? Thanks you very much.
I have had the shingles blisters for a week, they are now starting to dry out. However, I am nauseated, I vomit, I am exhausted, and have a recurring temperature. Does anyone else have these complications?
