I posted this on Bomamed, but in case anyone missed it, it is really important!
If you are in this kind of treatment for your IC, the success is in the details. So, a person needs to pay attention to each small thing that they are putting in their mouth or putting on their skin.
The next support group meeting will be on the 4th of April at a new location. A friend has
extended his office to us at no cost out of the kindness of his heart. He has a conference
room and sophisticated equipment which should work much better for us.
I am so very grateful to him. His company is Matchcraft, in West Los Angeles, California.
He is a wonderful human being and I am sure the good will come back his way!
I personally do not follow any exact faith. Mine is a personal interpretation of a combination
of many philosophies that guide me through my life. But, it occurred to me that if one would
consult his or her practitioners of faith, one might get answers such as:
all things are meant to be as they are, as God designed them to be, ad we must accept that
there is a higher purpose to all of this, or,
God does not give us more than we can handle, or,
there are karmic reasons for all that happens in life. But,
Of course there is not one treatment for IC! No. Anyone who knows anything about IC
knows how individual this condition is to each person that has it. REad my quote from
Hippocrates above! "It is more important to know the person that has the disease than the disease the person has."
The reason I reposted the article on potassium yesterday in case you all did not flip through the comment section is because it is so important to underscore the basics of information.
I was speaking to a patient that said if I had not posted this a few weeks ago she would never have connected that she was using a water softener in her home water filtration system and in fact using that water to make coffee and hot cereal with.
Many people in the beginning stages of treatment cannot tolerate starches and or grains.
While many consume them with no problems at all, many can not handle them.
To Whom It May Concern:
For those of you who dont know, your skin is your largest organ. Your skin is like a sponge, soaking up all that you put on it. In the early stages of my practice, I did not realize how much people wee being affected by their skin care products. As time passes, I began to connect the dots. Pain levels could be as different as night and day depending on product use.
In other words, a person could be doing everything correctly, but, using products that are upsetting their system. This in turn could be making pain levels rise.
I want to remind everyone and especially newcomers how much energy can effect your body. This is why we have to be so careful what we do when we are trying to get our body healthier and in better balance. For example, getting massages. Something as simple as a massage can make you feel many extraordinary things as the toxins are released and recirculated during a session of massage therapy.
