Iridologist / Acupuncturist

By motleychick - 8 July 2009 78

Hey Rioters,

Just wondering if anyone knows of any good iridologists and acupuncturists around the Tuggers area/Southside?

Any help would be much appreciated!! 🙂

What’s Your opinion?

…I don’t equate that story as evidence of the claim that “most GPs don’t know about H. pylori

It’s about as good as your counter-claim – an anecdote from a sample of one. But hey, if it makes you happy:

In my experience, and in that of my wife, built up over visits to many, many GPs in the ACT and Queensland over a period of not less than five years, just one was able to successfully diagnose and treat an h. pylori infection. I accept that these GPs may have known about, and may continue to know about, h. pylori, but as they were unable to diagnose it, and as their actual diagnoses were the usual cop-outs we’ve come to expect from the seven-minute medicine community, they were about as much use as big wobbly tits on a bowling ball.

Better?

Wow, I’m a picketer! lol

ant – while we’re here, I have an admission of my own and I have no idea how I got waylaid, but I thought you were a man when I said dumb shit the other week (not relevant I know, but I have put my head into it’s place anyhow). Had to get it out!

Hells_Bells74 1:14 pm 09 Jul 09

ant – it’s just a swab/blot test in the mouth under your tongue.

Some of the people at the workshop I was at had varying levels and one of the ladies (turned out a neighbouring to me mum of someone I knew) who had originally been yellow (acidic) had indeed turned to a nice green (dark green – optimum) (alkaline) by her admission changing her diet and eating loads of greens, gave up smoking and cut down heaps drinking and some others had had results with using products they recommend and they feel and look the difference. I for one thought it anyhow.

That’s a good idea.

Cigs are never great, and wine has a lot of preservatives that can effect people strangely.

Yes, preservatives in wine can be especially nasty to some people. Me being one of them.I would suggest looking for the ‘preservative free’ wines in the interum, just to be safe. most shops sell one or two bottles and they are not that much more expensive.
and I guess you don’t need any advice on the cigs. Evil little things they are. My health has been a while new ball game since I got rid of that habit. Still not there completely, but a hell of a lot closer.
Good luck. You will get there eventually:)

Oh and just to add – while my mum and I smoked (at the time, she reformed recently) and drink occasionally to moderate at time in stark contrast my mother-in-law suffered CFS whilst always being a true teetotaler and never touched a cigarette in her life. Just a very stressed and busy working mum she was.

I got a Ph kit on the weekend, can I test my Ph levels with that? Only, what do you make a pile of on the test plate… blood? A pile of skin?

Motleychick, might be an idea to check out food intolerances, too. They can underlie maladies that are hard to pin down, and can emerge at any time.

Hells_Bells74 12:31 pm 09 Jul 09

Have your ph level tested for one, your body can’t be well if it’s acidic (so I’m learning as I was 100% acidic the other week when I took the test and I was far from well myself).
Shame you are Southside or otherwise I would personally recommend Irene Hess-Oates for her wonderous work I’ve recently come across but she’s in Kaleen.

Pump the B group vitamins too.

Good luck with it, my mum suffered back in the day and my mum-in-law and it’s debilitating and depressing whatever it is keeping one unwell.

I’ve thought of Chronic Fatigue, and do eat healthily and exercise regularly. Maybe it’s time to give up the wine and cigarettes though… :s

Jim Jones 9:41 am 09 Jul 09

Ditto – I had a friend who had CFS and made the great leap by some positive lifestyle changes (healthy food, regular exercise, etc.)

In the long term, it actually worked out really well for her. She’s happier, healthier and more successful as a result of having CFS and changing her lifestyle as a result.

sepi 9:38 am 09 Jul 09

I also thought Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Unfortunately there is no cure, and no test to diagnose it. It does eventually get better though.

A friend had good success with yoga, meditation, giving up alcohol and caffeine and generally trying to be super healthy and also taking great care not to over do things.

FC 9:34 am 09 Jul 09

No, I’m not Jim Jones. I was simply addressing one comment. But choose to ignore what I said, that’s up to you.
I am letting this thread go.

Woody – symptoms include severe joint pain, constant tiredness, not sleeping, easily worn out, severe headaches (not all the time, but very often), I get flus and colds all the time… That’s all I can think of right now. According to the GP it’s probably all stress related. Pfft.

Sounds like chronic fatigue syndrome. But I know precisely jack all about this sort of stuff.

Regardless – I really hope you manage to diagnose and/or (even better) get on the mend.

FC: You’re clutching at straws now. Just let it go.

motleychick: I don’t think you are a hypochondriac at all. I grew up in a small NZ village, where there were quite a number of people persistently sick for around 3 years. No one could figure it out, until eventually it was traced to giardia (microorganism in the water supply, it was not even meant to be in the country at that point.) However, for 3 years there were all these unwell but undiagnosed people. It happens!

I don’t know if you have tried it yet, but you could also go down the food allergy path, and have a look at what happens when you really strictly control your diet, get tested to see if there are any that really cause you issues, and try cutting out all the really common allergens, and see what happens.

but cannot get my records from Defence, they are lost, yeh sure!

Haha, same boat as me and a few mates. The ADF pumped us full of so many drugs that we all joke among each other that we’re probably immune to everything know to man.

A person UNTRAINED in medicine? WTF do you think that practictioners study.
For many it would be 4 years full times study, then further study to specialize in whatever they choose their speciality to be (irodology/acupuncter/homeopathy etc)

Same thing as Scientology. They study for years and spend thousands of dollars to get “clear” and gain the ability to levitate. If you’re willing to pay you can get people to sell you anything. Even the service of looking after your pets after you get raptured.

I missed the part where scientology is a government accredited course.
Naturopathy, which homeopathy is studied, is.
So no, it is not the same things as scientology at all.

Motleychic
I know what you are going through, I have had several blood tests, one or two showed something, have been to a coulple of GP’S, one of the GP’s should have sent it to a blood specialist, I have also been to two specialists, its not in my mind, I’m glad my own GP knows, he told me a man went to all the specialists and showed nothing, and it finially went away by itself, it could go anytime or I may have I’ll have it for 12 years, I believe it was either caused by stress or malaryia tablets I had taken years ago in PNG, as I looked up side effects from the drug and that was one of them, but cannot get my records from Defence, they are lost, yeh sure!
