I know how frustrating it can be to not have the doctors figure out your condition. That has happened to me on now 3 occasions. But, ironically, I've found answers to all three of my pprevious conditions via alternative health. As a result, when I or a member of my family has an ailment I now consult alternative health practitioners as well as MDs. So far, the Alternative health practitioners or integrative health MDs are the ones that have helped my family and I not traditional doctors.
I have a child who had vomiting, and stomach pains which were solved not by the GI doc who told him there was nothing wrong with him but the alternative health practitioner who gave him an intensive digestive enzyme pill (contained hydrocholoric acid). the very first time he took the pill with his meal, he was able to eat his entire meal and did not vomit afterwards or during the meal as was the case on some occasions. His diet, though not horrible by today's standards, was inadequate for his needs. He needed much more vegetables and yogurts to aid his digestion. She also prescribed a probiotic aid to build natural probiotics in his system. It's been almost 2 years and he's never thrown up again, and he no longer needs his pill with every meal. I don't think he takes it at all anymore. I hope you are willing to look in at "ancient health wisdom" practices up until the past century. There is more help there than I realized until I started searching.View Thread
