am taking Humira for my crohn's disease, so when i told my doctor that i was having pain similar to the ones you described, he wrote it off as nothing. He told me Humira should help with that too. Well it didn't. So i am currently under the care of a pain management specialist because it got so bad that i couldn't leave my bed without crying out in pain. When i realized that the more i sat the worse it got, but i couldn't get up or the worse it got.. i had to seek help. All my pain management specialist does is pump me full of pain medication to mask the symptoms,. but what i really want is someone to treat the problem causing the symptoms. Im sorry i dont have some magical cure to help... lord knows i went looking for one myself... let me know if you come across one ok?View Thread
You can start to look at the products we offer, go to www.TryAdvocareDare.com if you order through me I can extend my discount of 10% to you. Like I said I'm not trying to make money, I just want to put great products and great people together. And your story being so eerily similar to my own has earned you a spot in my heart. I truly care an hope we can get you feeling better!
Email me when you can if you want to give advocare a chance,
It pains me to read you response because I know all too well the pain, exhaustion and frustration you are feeling. Yes I am trying to sell you something but no I am not fooling you into spending money on crap that doesn't work! I am trying to encourage you to try the products that have worked miracles for me since our stories are so similar. I am not going to claim these products will bring magical cures to all our ailments, because that would be crazy! And they may not work as well for you as they have me, but it's worth a try isn't it? You deserve to feel like a normal person again right? I know how it feels to be so sick and tired of being so sick and tired! Its mentally exhausting, and I can remember times I was so frustrated with feeling crappy I really didn't think it coud get any worse...and then it does. But we have no choice but to wake up each day, put on the happiest face we can muster up, and try to get through the day praying people can't see the pain beneath the smiles we force. I have been using Advocare for almost 3 months now. And literally within the first week of using immunoguard, catalyst, and omegaplex (along with exercise, healthy meals and the rehydrate drinks) not only could I tell they were working, but people around me noticed a change as well. And then when I had my first blood draw since starting advocare my doctors asked me what I was doing differently because the results had shown such improvement!! I really hope you can benefit from these products the way that I have. Before you order anything would you like me to help you figure out what exactly you would benefit most from? My email would be the best way of reaching me, and I can give you my cell phone number if that is easier. My email is TryAdvocareDare at gmail dot com. I had to write it that way because I don't know if they allow you to write it out in firstname.lastname@example.org format. I really hope that we can work together and find you some supplements that get you feeling better. I am so thankful to advocare for changing my life, and I just want to pass it on to others like yourself who could use a break from feeling sick and tired all the time. As far as my doctors go, there are a few products in some of the advocare lines that I have to stay away from, mainly the ones like fiber rich supplements and products designed to cleanse the digestive track. You and I do enough cleansing on our own! LoL! But overall, their products get the thumbs up from my medical army. Advocare's products are all approved by a board of scientists and doctors, one of which is Dr. Stanley Dudrick who, as I mentioned in my first post, Pioneered the research and development of TPN! So if he approves of Advocare I do too! Email me when you get the chance. I really look forward to helping you end the vicious cycle of pain and frustration you seem to be stuck in. I'll keep you in my prayers. -JakkiView Thread
Oh and that TPN the doctors said I would rely on for the rest of my life... Guess they were wrong since I no longer use TPN for IV nutritional needs... Thanks to www.tryadvocaredare.com and their products! If that's not proof of successful results I don't know what is!View Thread
Unfortunately you posted two years ago and i doubt you will ever see this but i have to respond because our stories are way too similar! I was diagnosed with Crohns disease 6 years ago, I had my first surgery, an abdominal re-sectioning (in other words three feet of my intestines removed) and that seemed to go well until i got home and noticed the surgery site was infected. I didnt think it would be such a big deal, just a round of antibiotics and that would be it. No such luck! The doctor had to re-open the site in the middle of the emergency room, and left it open to drain, forcing me to change the infection soaked gauze every night until the 3-4 inch deep hole in my stomach closed. Just a few short months later i was rushed to the ER with what i thought was a Crohns flare. WRONG! What i had was an intestinal hernia that had perforated, causing sepsis. My heart stopped several times, and every organ in my body was either failing or damn close! they removed my gallbladder, kidney, and a piece of my liver. Unfortunately they also removed 90% of my remaining intestines. I now have less than 72cm remaining. Obviously this constitutes short gut. I was choppered to the Univ. of Nebraska's IRP to discuss transplant options. At this point i was told i would be on TPN for the rest of my life. My team of doctors and nutritionists at UNMC introduced me to Oral Rehydration Solutions, Nasty as they were i continued to drink them with little to no improvement. It wasnt until recently that i found a better replacement. My bi-weekly blood work has shown drastic improvement since i began taking these products, and i feel energized, healthy, and sometimes even normal! The company is called ADVOCARE. The doctor that pioneered the development of TPN, Dr, Stanley J. Dudrick, is on the Advocare sci/Med board. All state of the art, scientifically based nutritional products designed to promote optimal health and performance are reviewed by the members of this Sci/Med board. Go to www.tryadvocaredare.com and you will be amazed at the products that have! Not to mention the celebrity endorsements (Drew Brees, Austin Dillon and more!) I was so happy with the way these products worked for me i became a distributor to pass it to others! Read some of the testimonials on the webpage! (plus by signing up to be a distributor you get 20-40% off all future orders! But the most important thing is these products actually work. I have absorption issues as well, and ive tried every medical, nutritional, and even some homeopathic remedies for hydration, nutrition, and overall wellness. www.tryadvocaredare.com's products taste great, and the fantastic results seen in my blood work are proof enough for me. I recommend Rehydrate- it is a mix you add to a bottle of water, and because of this i no longer have to suffer through ORS solutions! I am also taking IMMUNOGUARD- which provides support for a healthy immune system; ARGININE EXTREME- helps maintain healthy respiratory and cardiovascular systems, support healthy blood pressure, and provides nutrient delivery to muscles; OMEGAPLEX- help with transportation of nutrients, cardiovascular health, promotes healthy metabolism, and helps maintain a healthy immune system, healthy skin, hair and nails. CATALYST- helps aid weight management, repairs and preserves muscles and energy levels during times of calorie restriction,; and since i have problems with a few extra pounds too i also take THERMOPLUS- supports the body's ability to convert fat into energy, promotes healthy metabolism.
