First of all thanks to all who have taken the time to reply to my questions regarding weight loss etc. I have now put myself on a gluten free diet , so lets see what happens, will keep you posted. Has anyone had bad experience whilst flying, i heard that air travel becomes unbearable for some reason or other. Also has anyone tried cranial sacral therapy and Ozone therapy.??
I am not an expert on any of these, but I do have some challenges flying long distances. The dryness in airplanes wreaks havoc on my system (eyes, nose, ears, skin, mouth, you name it, even my fingernails crack). I try to keep everything as hydrated as possible. I also seem to have more problems with the pressure in my ears. I never used to have to worry about my ears popping, but for whatever reason, they sure get painful now. I wouldn't call any of this 'unbearable' but again, I try not to fly more than a few hours in a leg.
And yes, I have tried cranial sacral and found the increased flow of fluid to be beneficial. Not so much from a dryness perspective per se, but from a revitalization and movement perspective... almost like new cells are being activated if that makes any sense. I have not tried (or heard of actually) ozone therapy. What is that suppose to do and where do you get it? I would be interested in knowing more!
Thanks for your help Patricia, Ozone therapy is the bombarding of pressurised oxygen into your body ( i think so ) , have a friend with lupus and she says it has helped her a great deal. Have a look on the net for a better view.
At the moment am battling with muscle pain in legs and shoulders, it starts the minute i exert myself. Is this normal.? My knee joints are also very noisy. Hope it doesn`t get worse.
Have a nice day.
Wow, I don't know if I am brave enough to try ozone therapy. It still sounds very risky to me. That being said, I am currently trying Far Infrared Therapy (non-invasive infrared light) and it seems to be helping. I have much more energy and it seems to reduce the inflammation of the muscles and joints. Have you tried this? By the way, are you seeing a good rheumatologist? I find they are the only specialty that doesn't get all crazy wound around their own ignorance when it comes to auto-immune issues. Mine has been a God-send. Best of luck to you!
