Naturopath Worth The Money?

19 May 2011 - 02:07 PM


I'm thinking about seeing a naturopath next week. She has good reviews and is a graduate of Bastyr University, but is quite expensive at $275 for the initial visit (1 hour long). I don't think my insurance plan covers naturopathic medicine (I have a student Blue Cross insurance plan). I have other concerns besides gluten for my symptoms that I want to talk to her about. I understand With no insurance coverage for this, all the testing and appointments are going to be expensive, I'm wondering if it will be worth it - especially since I've already spent so much money on traditional medical testing. I'm really hoping she has a lot of knowledge, beyond stuff that I can find from researching on the internet. Should I see her?


Interesting Article

14 May 2011 - 02:13 AM


Heres an interesting article which talks about how digestive problems early on in life can increase the risk of depression and anxiety. Its good to see more research showing how problems with the gut/other parts of the body influences the mind. There is so much emphasis on the effect of mind over body, but not enough the other way around.

Can Natural Antifungal Get Rid Of Candida Affecting Whole Body?

08 May 2011 - 11:13 PM


I have a lot of symptoms which I think might be attributed to candida/yeast overgrowth. I was wondering, will natural antifungals (caprylic acid, oregano oil, olive leaf, GSE, etc) get rid of candida symptoms outside of the digestive track? Symptoms such as tingling/pain in body, muscle weakness and soreness, itchy skin, hand tremors, brain fog, etc.


Trouble Eating But Need To Eat

20 April 2011 - 02:23 AM


Does anyone have a loss of appetite, trouble eating, but at the same time feel like they are starving? I feel like I need to eat a lot of food - and I get bad symptoms when I don't. However, its been extremely hard to eat large meals. I don't have much of an appetite and I get full really easily - like it feels like my stomach is full or digestion is sluggish so I can't eat a lot even though I'm still hungry. I try to force the food down but its difficult.

Also, when I try to eat more food, my heart starts to beat hard, and stays that way for a while sometimes. It also feels like I have acid reflux, particularly when eating more carbs - but if I eat low carb I feel really bad and fatigued.

I'm wondering if it is due to a vitamin deficiency? Maybe B12? As I have symptoms of B12 deficiency and MCV is at top of the normal range. Or something else? Anyways, I feel like my body needs a lot of nutrients but I just can't get myself to eat a lot of food without feeling really uncomfortable. I don't really get any gastrointestinal pain. I also thought it might be due to certain food intolerances? I noticed an increase in symptoms recently as I have been eating a lot of rice.


Gluten Free Natural Shampoo

13 April 2011 - 02:09 PM


Does anyone know of a good gluten free shampoo that is natural? Something my current shampoo is making me itch (Head and Shoulders), so I need something else (btw, I am a guy). And also, looking for something that is actually more natural vs. labeled natural with a bunch of chemicals.
