New to the board - naturopath treatments
Hello all. Just a brief background. I suffer from asthma and almost died from pneumonia after contracting the H1N1 virus 2 years ago. I have been on steroids and many antibiotics over the years. In May, I had a case of bronchitis and was put on steroids. I started having weird symptoms - light-headedness, dizziness, exhaustion, etc. I have been thru a battery of tests. I have also had depression and anxiety due to the unknown illness. The medical doctor could not find anything wrong. Feeling frustration, I went to an alternative doctor. They said based on my symptoms and results of a saliva test that I am suffering from adrenal fatigue and low normal thyroid (blood tests normal). In addition, they said I have gluten/wheat allergies. With a change in diet and various supplements I hope to get my life back. I am on medical leave right now but know I need to get back so I don't lose my job. It is very frustrating and family does not always understand. I am still rather skeptical since the medical profession usually does not diagnose this problem unless blood tests are abnormal. I was wondering how many of you have gone the alternative route and has it helped.
