...you have landed on a website rich with support and information on alternatives or
adjunctive treatments to the standard methods of treatment that exist today.
If you are looking for those kinds of options, this means
that you feel that those standard treatments have not worked for you or that you are
looking for something to work in place of or in conjunction with your present treatment
I think the most significant difference between this site and other sites is that we offer

I cannot even begin to say how much of this article I agree with and how wonderful it is. At last the world of research is really coming around to acknowledge the role that our gut bacteria really play in our health and that it is the route of chronic disease and the inflammation driving these many conditions. Sound familiar:) I LOVE LOVE LOVE this article.
Thank you to the many of you who sent it to me.

Here are two links to the same article in different publications regarding chronic back pain having been cured by antibiotics.
No, I have not started to advocate antibiotics, but, it is interesting in that this research does show how chronic pain, at least this type can be caused by lowgrade infection. The way in which they describe the infection is not exact;ly the same route that I would use to describe it either. However, th point is, when the body is given a means through which to reduce its bacterial overload, pain will be reduced.

you don't think about can be bothering you. Don't forget, what you put on your body is just as powerful as what you put in it.
Often one will hear, "oh, it's just going in your eyes, so it isn't systemic", or "oh, it is just a local shot to that joint, it won't effect your bladder", or "it is designed to by pass your intestines, so it won't effect your bladder". Hmm. not true. If something is touching your skin, this will effect your bladder one way or another-positive or negative.

This video speaks about the influences of the gut and metabolism. This thinking is very much aligned with mine, although there are always points that apply to others and not those with IC. So, I am not giving advice through sharing this, but rather using it as yet another example of the influences of the gut bacteria and human health. It is truly phenomenal!

In order to be more efficient with time and effectiveness, we now have a new email: firstname.lastname@example.org. It will be checked during office hours Monday through Saturday. Email will not be checked on Sundays.
Every change is an adjustment, and this is a big one. I have struggled with this for some time. I hope that everyone understands my intention is to deliver the most effective treatment that I can.

It has come to my attention ( I do not read the forum) that there has been conversation about me not returning a patient email.
If I did not return an email, I missed it or did not receive it. Please resend. I don't ignore people intentionally.
I am, not with any connection to this issue, changing my emailing policy so that I can make emailing more productive and effective for both patients and myself. I will post this new policy later today or tomorrow.

I don't know where this came from, except that a patient sent it to me as if it was a quote from somewhere else. I really liked it, it encompasses many thoughts I have always upheld.
I believe in the cliche-there are reasons for everything. And that we find strength and power in our obstacles by learning to overcome them, by not believing in them. These thoughts have guided me in my own life.

On the Side effects of Antibiotics. I have not read it, but, looking at this link regarding its content, it looks quite interesting. I am not aligned with all of the recommendations below obviously regarding alternatives to antibiotics, however, the main content looks very good.
