hi all thanks for the posts. and sleeper thanks for all the info, it's nice to know the "why" behind what we're doing. and i'm glad to find out that ginger does help with inflammation and pain...i still wonder if it's better to get oils or use the raw stuff in the bath? i bet theyre both just as effective and probably even more so with both being used seperately. i wonder though do you think you can overload on ginger? :) just a thought.
anwya thanks for asking about how i'm doing marssha....the last 2 weeks have been hard. dr m is treating my 2 gi infections with heavy doses of antis so my body's been hit hard. i was supposed to be taking 875 mg 2 x day, but ater 1 day of that i had herxed terribly, so for the next 5 i was on 1 x day. then the doc moved me back to 2, and 2 days later my knuckles, wrists and hands in general were soo puffy and swollen red that i was in a ton of pain. plus all my other symptoms went through the roof as usual. so needless to say i went back down to 1 a day. even now 5 days later, my hands are covered in bruisses and still swollen, making it really hard to make a fist or grab things.. the 1 a day is hard for me to tolerate but i have to get rid of these infections...it's a tough road to haul. i know we all know about those days. i have 6 more days of treatmtne to make it trhough and then we begin rebuilding my liver. so i'm hoping i can just hang on and tough it out...the baths are really heklping....and hen i can recover and rest better for a bit. i don't think the liver stuff is going to require antis at all, at least it better not. otherwise i don't know what i'm gonna do. my body needs a break for suer no matter what.
anyway enough typing for now...thanks again for all the info and thoughts. much appreciated. hope you all have a great weekend.
