In Topic: What Kind Of Doc?

24 September 2012 - 08:39 PM

What does it matter what the diagnosis is? I know if I am hit on the head with a hammer it's going to cause physical pain and possibly neurological damage. If I ingest wheat it will do the same thing. It no longer takes a doctor to confirm this.

Yes, we get a tax break if we have a "legitimate" diagnosis... What else? I got my diagnosis from a naturopathic physician back when the orthodoxy of western medicine believed we were one in 100,000 and they'd never see one of us in their practice. The ordeal of getting the diagnosis would have done me too much damage by the time western medicine realized it was wrong.

But, in the end, it's not what the diagnosis is, it's about how we survive. Take it and run.

In Topic: Anyone From Virginia?

Yup. Virginia Beach here. Canary in the kitchen when it comes to gluten. I've learned that most of my food has to be cooked "from scratch" -- Organic Food Depot on Commuter Drive (right off Holland Road & Independance Dr. is a great place to shop, best prices on gluten free pasta & other goodies. I know that level of sensitivity varies, and many of us have other sensitivities as well. Been trying to be gluten free for 18 yrs, and have been successful the last 4 (had to divorce somebody to do that).

I'd be glad to help.

Oh, my name is Ellen Honeycutt. If you want you can add me on Facebook.
