Sadly, this person was run off by the "moderator" here and I could've benefitted from this person's experience. Anyone else find this to be the case on this board? Very lousy.

Thank you for your response. I received iv iron in '09 but there was more of an effort to increase my hemoglobin & iron quickly rather than diagnose the cause. Anywho, it's a good thing you replied because I just realized I bought magnesium instead of iron a few weeks ago. I should be taking this iron twice a day, not magnesium. Maybe that's why I'm so tired!

I don't think I would have caught this had you not mentioned the iron. Thank you!

What exact IV nutritional therapy do they have you on?

🌷

It's a bag of C, Bs, minerals & she added amino acids to the first bag, not sure of the second. I'm taking oral D at 10,000 IU & eating iron-rich foods.

I have a lot of food intolerances and genetic issues with absorbing vitamins & water to boot. She's about to check me for MTHFR. She said I was limited in the essential building blocks of life for a long time. Most of the damage from gluten & mercury poisoning has healed! It was very bad & I thought that would be the end of story but it's not. The doctor is on a hunt to determine the rest of the pieces. I'm enthralled with the world of genetics. Seems nothing is simple.

On a positive note, what's turning up from all this is proof of my real strength and will to live! I just have to be careful right now and would really love feedback from someone who has experienced IV vitamin therapy.

Honey, my intestines are't completely useless and there has been improvement over time.

Anyone out there ever done the IV nutritional therapy? If so, I'd love to hear from you. PM me if it's more "convenient".

I'm sorry this is so discouraging for you. I know how frustrating it is when you're trying so hard to stick to a healthy diet and you still hit setbacks. Have you ever heard of Cyrex labs? They do a lot of different tests for food sensitivities and gut permeability and I'd really highly recommend getting some tests done. I was in the same boat as your husband last year. I had been gluten-free for a year but still felt like crap, in fact I felt even worse than I did before going off of gluten. Constant digestive issues, extreme fatigue, hormonal problems, you name it. I got a few Cyrex tests done and I found out that being gluten-free wasn't cutting it. I'm also sensitive to dairy, corn, amaranth, teff, and tapioca. I was SO overwhelmed by this, but I actually felt better after going off of those foods, so it was worth it.

I think that sometimes you can go on an elimination diet where you cut out all foods that can cause sensitivities such as grains, dairy, eggs, nightshade vegetables, etc., and then add them in one by one to see if you have a reaction. To me, it was worth it just to get the lab work done, but you might want to think about that as well.

Gut healing is a weird thing because it really does seem to get worse before it gets better. Hang in there.


I also found success with the food intolerance blood test. Mine was a different company. As soon as I eliminated those foods, my inflammation calmed and I could raise my arms above my head (literally was in too much pain previously). I still struggle with my health but quelling the constant inflammation has allowed my gut to heal.
