living our best life possible – alternative medicine

Welcome back my friends!  Thank you so very much for joining me again for our next question on living our best life possible.

The question this week is………what alternative medical treatment(s) or recommendations, if any, have given you positive results?

A traditional medical path has, up to this point, provided minimal relief from any of my chronic illnesses.  As a result, I have sought out more non-traditional and alternative medical professionals through this very long and winding path towards (hopefully) healing.  But, do to the high cost of alternative medicine, there are many paths that I have yet to explore – but hope to some day.

I have experienced benefits from various supplements, following a grain-free diet, meditation, walking when able, and seeing a medical massage therapist once on month to help with muscle and joint pain.

How about you?  Please share your experiences!

 

~ Please note – no one on here is providing medical advice, we are only sharing personal experiences that have helped us on our journey.

  1. There are several I have tried due to needing to control pain, that I thought I would never try. For years I was a very c0nservative person of faith and taught that Asian medicine was wrong. It’s not wrong at all! Here’s how acuptunture works. The needles are placed next to nerves which sends messages or signals to the brain which releases healing hormones to the body. Reflexology works in a similar way without the needles. It helps me for sure!

  2. Yes, Western medicine doesn’t have all of the answers. I love how the East tends to focus on the treatment of lifestyles and diet rather than just the symptoms of the problems. I think that’s what your alternative medicine is sort of doing. I hope you get relief!

  3. I have found two things helpful in pain of arthritis.Turmeric and cinnamon. Turmeric can be taken mixed with honey or in a glass of warm milk. Don’t take more than 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric, it is very pungent tasting. Cinnamon, I take in hot tea or coffee. It has strong anti-inflammatory properties.

  4. Acupuncture has relieved terrible pain in my shins. I am returning after 2 years. I’m not sure if it is alternative medicine but eliminating red meat in my diet helps me control my Hemochromatosis it is under control now. Hemochromatosis is a genetic disorder that does not allow my body to process Iron causing it to build up in my blood. Playing guitar, uke and banjo help the pain in my hands.
    Thanks for asking.

    • Thank you so very much for taking time to answer this question and leaving comments on what has worked for you. You are now the 2nd person to mention acupuncture helping pain so I am now putting it higher on my list. Thank you also for letting me know what your genetic disorder is, I learned something new today.
      Thanks again for stopping by!

  5. An anti-inflammatory diet has been great to eliminate my arthritis pain; no gluten, no dairy, no nightshades (tomato, potato, bell peppers, hot peppers and eggplant). Magnesium supplements are helpful in mental health- calms my mind. I’ve used acupuncture and seen a chiropractor. Both help the body heal.

      I love all of your suggestions…….I am currently on a no gluten or grains and no dairy and have been struggling to go no nightshades but now that I have read your comment, I think it has pushed me over the edge 🙂
      I have also found magnesium to be a life saver, especially at night.
      And, another one for acupuncture – for sure I am going to work this into my budget! Do you have any suggestions on how to find a good one?
      Thank you again, I am thrilled you left such wonderful suggestions. Bless you!

      • Thanks, the dietary changes have been key for my health. Completely eliminating sugar is very good but I have a sweet treat about once a week. I would ask around to see if any of your friends have a good acupuncturist. A few have sliding scales payments which can make them more affordable. Even one appointment a month can help. Good luck on your health journey. -R

  6. I love reading all the replies to your very interesting post! Acupuncture, essential oils, going with only whole grains (not wheat, though), cutting out dairy and sugar, limiting meat, sticking only to homemade personal care items (soaps, toothpowder, laundry, hair care, skin care), clean water, air purifier, and exercise helps me. I used to be against CBD and anything marijuana-related until I did my research: Now I understand this is an amazing gift in the plant that God gave us. It is illegal in my state (even hemp is), but if it ever goes legal, I’m getting some for my dad first, and I’m trying it. I have relatives who can use it, and it helps very much with pain.

    • Hi Kathy, thank you so very much for joining in on this discusssion – you have left so many wonderful comments on what has worked for you!
      Another one for acupuncture, I think God is telling me something! I love how you only use homemade personal care items, that is so much better for you, even the “natural”ones on the market are not always natural.
      I also have air purifiers and I think they help me quite a bit too.
      I have taken CBD oil as it has helped so many people, unfortunately, that has not been the case for me. But if it was legal in my state, which it is not, I would try THC oil to see if that would help with pain. I know it has helped others with chairi.
      Thank you so much for your wonderful list of ideas…….I love learning from each other. Bless you!

    • Hi Janie, thank you so very much for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment. I completely agree with you. I had a very serious spinal surgery about 10 years ago and had a bad experience with a massage therapist who was not medically trained. The person I go to is not only a massage therapist but works with people with chronic medical conditions. Now, I will admit, at times it is painful because my muscles become extremely tight and she is trying to get them aligned and loosened. It is also necessary to drink a lot of water after a massage! I hope this helps.
      Thanks again for stopping by, I deeply appreciate it.

  7. As you know I only use natural medicine and they always work for me.

    I have had massage and found I felt worse after the massage I came away carrying their negativity.

    Pilates I had spent months healing a womens health problem to have all the work I did undone in one lesson. I had asked the instructors advice before I did the class and they assured me I would be all right. Oh so wrong had to start from scratch.

    I have tried acupuncture and had some good and bad results, it is very painful procedure.

    I have also tried many work arounds for healing and they did not work.

    I have used aromatherapy oils and they just give relief not a cure.

    Healing is the best I know.

  8. What a great run of comments. I have to add support for acupuncture. I see a doctor of Chinese Medicine, and she does acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, among other practices. She is also an MD. She keeps pain at bay. I have also seen a MD who practices Foundational Medicine. He is amazing. Those two helped me get out of bed after three years bedridden.

  9. What a great question!

    Since my 20s I have had the knees of an elderly lady. As I approached 30 it was very painful for met to even bend them and when I did they made loud creaking and popping sounds! Doctors failed me. They wanted me to wear big ugly knee braces. Nope. I started to take CosaminDS (this sounds like an ad but it’s definitely not!) and after a few weeks I had my knees back. They no longer creak or give me pain, but I do have to do some daily stretches. Over the past twenty years I have tried on three different occasions to stop taking the supplement and after a few days the pain starts coming back so I know that it’s not some kind of placebo or coincidence. It doesn’t work for everyone, though.

    Mediation, relaxation and God are also key for me!

  10. Wendi, my list is a long one and it grows over time. To be as brief as possible, here are what I incorporate into my life …..

    Acupuncture …. please be aware not all acupuncturists are the same. Do your research if you choose to try this.
    Chiropractic adjustments …. again with this not all chiropractors are the same.
    Herbs …. cinnamon relieves inflammation and boosts energy, CBD oil, and will be trying more but I don’t want to say anything now …. I must try first. I’m allergic to most herbs and must be careful.
    Essential oils …. lavender aids in wound healing.
    Protein from pumpkin seeds and almonds with very little meat at all in my diet. Working on eliminating meat totally.
    All dairy products a no. The same goes for sugar and white flour. No artificial sweetener such as Stevia.
    Beet root, spirulina, moringa.
    Magnesium citrate.
    Carbon 60. Please be careful IF you choose this. Many companies are scams. I spent a lot of money in order to find a reliable source.
    Liniments to relieve pain.
    Will be making elderberry syrup when I get my supplies.
    Apple Cider Vinegar + baking soda + concentrated lemon juice.
    Plant based multiple vitamins …. inclusive is calcium. Vita D3.
    L-ascorbic acid powder (Vita C).

    It took me many years to develop this for myself. I’m always changing it up or taking more or adding to it. I’m very aware of what foods cause inflammation. I only eat whole, organic foods. My one vice that I will not give up is one cup of coffee in the mornings. (smile)

  11. This was yet again another brilliant post Wendi! Recently I have had issues with food and think it could be a gluten allergy. I have been doing my best to only eat foods that are gluten-free which isn’t easy. I haven’t ever had to pay attention to what I eat because nothing caused issues. I am also wanting to try getting on a anti-inflammatory diet because I am sure it will help with the MS.Great job sweetie!

  12. So often I want to try something different, but other than taking care of myself the best I can, I muddle on. I went to a doctor recently cuz I felt I had a UTI and maybe a yeast infection. I steer away from peanuts and sunflower seeds, but when I got back to Oregon I had ONE slice of sunflower bread. BAD idea. Oddly, the antibiotic seems to be helping me in more than just taking care of a disease. I’m just thankful. Also surprised, but definitely thankful! Chronic illness is a crazy journey. When other things pop in, it is nice to meet someone who looks beyond glucose levels and aging!

  13. Research Cannabis (THC) I am not familiar with this but I am hearing rumors all over the place about this helping so many people. My grandma and Nana used to do all kinds of home remedies like Aloe, honey, lots of garlic, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon for upset stomachs, and organic fruits and veggies.
    Also research mushrooms and their benefits. Don’t go out in the woods looking for your own though, as you know, some are deadly poisonous. Look for old books at yard sales and second hand shops for plants and their benefits. It seems to be harder and harder each year that goes by for good books that teach us how to do things ourselves. Readers Digest books (vintage) are still available online and they have great suggestion on doing things in a more natural way.
    If you buy essential oils remember to make sure they are pure oils. I used to manage a shop that sold Dr. Bronners soaps, bath salt, pure oils, unscented gels, massage oils, and aloe lotion.
    Here in Arizona we have a lot of Native Americans that still use plants to heal elements. I should do a post on some of our desert plants that help heal certain things but again,,,I am not an expert or a scientist, just passing down what I learned growing up here in the desert.
    You are coming up with great questions Wendi. Hope you and your family are all well, have a great weekend.

    • God bless you for leaving such a wonderful response! I have also read a lot about THC and how is has done wonderful things for so many people including those who suffer with the same chronic illnesses that I do. Unfortunately, it is illegal in my state, even for medical reasons so I am unable to try it. But, I am willing to travel to try to see if it would work for me. I could go on a long rant about this but I will save that for a later date. 🙂
      I will start looking for some older books on healing and health when I get to a thrift store, that is a great idea, thank you!
      I do also use only natural, but store purchased health care products and I do think I noticed a difference once I made a complete switch over……toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, make-up (when I wear some), mouthwash, lotions, soaps, and the list could go on.
      Thank you so very much, again, for leaving such an awesome response and I know this will help so many people.

  15. Living in the United States, the traditional medicines offered to me for my chronic back pain is opiates and morphine injections. The Food and Drug Administration does ot approve the high level pain killers that I need to reduce (not eliminate), reduce my pain.

    Thus I come here to the Dominican Republic and purchase (through my Doctor) higher dosage of pain killers that does help make the pain more manageable.

  16. I have practiced food combining for many years, so, although suffering many other symptoms, an upset stomach became almost unknown to me.
    But later, hit by undiagnosed pancreatic failure I started literally wasting away from malnutrition: as food was no longer broken down.
    I have since been grateful for the benefits of fruit, as, being so full of water and enzymes, it digests easier than any other food. (If eaten on its own.)

    • Hi Ken, it is so very nice to see you here 🙂 Thank you for taking the time to answer the question and write about what has worked best for you. I love how you have found that fruit is helping you stay hydrated and is able to be broken down easier so you body can digest all of its nutrients. Do you have a favorite fruit, one that feels the most healing for you?
      Another question, have you have taken pancreatic enzymes? I have taken these with some success…….
      Thank you again Ken for dropping by and adding to this discussion, I really appreciate it.

      • Thank you, Wendi!

        Yes: I need to take high-dose pancreatic enzymes with all foods (to escape IBS and malnutrition).
        Apart from fruit.
        (The one exception being a banana/ date meal (4 or more): rather drier and starchier than most fruits, I may take a small enzyme dose.)

        Mango/Persimmon/Cherimoya/Black (or red) Grapes/Papaya/Honeydew melon/Blueberries,
        are my favourites.
        Organic, where possible, especially berries.

        I live entirely on fruit, except for one evening (rice based) meal.
        No Dairy/meat/eggs/processed food/sugar/alcohol/gluten/nightshades. And very low oxalate.

  17. Hellooooo!
    Good question…let’s see what have I tried? It really is so expensive, but I’m lucky, I have been able to afford some of it some times. There have been times when we couldn’t but since I got disability I’m able to do much more. (hubby’s salary can pay the bills so my income and Medicare takes care of my medical expenses, I feel very lucky indeed but you didn’t ask about that.)
    -I tried chiropractic to adjust my cervical atlas, it worked at one point to help relieve some of my migraines and brain fog, but it stopped working. I tried it again for my back and neck and I felt it hurt.
    -I tried bio-feed back to help pelvic pain, it didn’t work.
    -I’ve tried physical therapy…I guess that isn’t alternative therapy, but I had dry needling during it for my back spasms and I feel like that was, neither helped. PT did help for some things, like recovery from surgeries, but chronic pain and athritis, it has not helped with that.
    -Massage therapy has helped sometimes more than others. Sometimes a lot, sometimes not at all.
    -I just tried some acupuncture but I had to cancel so many appointments because of really bad days I wasn’t able to get a whole round done to see if it really helped. I’m really not sure it would have though, she thought I would have noticed something from the first couple of sessions.
    -I take supplements, some work to some extent, some didn’t work at all. Taking ginger with a triptan really increases it ability to knock a migraine out. my triptans had completely stopped working but if I take 500 mg of ginger with it, it really helps. So glad I read that study.
    -I’ve tried neuro-kenetic body work therapy…It was amazing, but I had barely gotten started when we moved from NC to AZ and I can’t find a practitioner here.
    -I use medical marijuana and CBD. I have found that certain strains can help my pain and anxiety a lot, other strains do not. It is a lot of trial and error. CBD oil makes my throat hurt so I use glycerin, it helps my stomach, but not so much pain…maybe a little. I find high CBD flower (the herb itself) more helpful for that). I also find CBD and THC ointment a good rub for my muscles.
    -I do follow a gluten free and low FODMAP diet, but that’s because I have to. and YES they have helped tremendously! But I found out I’m allergic to wheat with suspected Celiac disease (it’s really hard to get a positive test when I can’t eat wheat for the testing) and I have fructose malabsorption.
    I think that’s all.
    I’m going to a pain clinic tomorrow, so who knows what they will recommend. I’m pretty sure it will be traditional Western medicine though.
    another long comment 🙂 and I feel like I’ve forgotten something…lol

  20. What a wonderful Question…
    To be honest several things have worked and helped me along my healing journey, and because I tried and started several at the same time, I cannot really say which one was the most effective in my own healing process…
    But I first started with Affirmations, Mirror Work, and learning to Love myself more and feel worthy… This internal work I feel is most important…

    At the same time I started the Spring Forest QiGong techneque and breathing exercises, the more deeply I learnt how to breathe the more oxygen I got into my muscles and this helped with pain levels in FMS also the exercises while gentle helped with my movement..

    Not long after I began feeling more mobile I then started Acupuncture.. This I still have monthly to this day.. It so, so helped with pain levels and to balance my energy body,
    And of course taking the right vitamins and eating healthy and drinking lots of water..

    What works for one will not aways work for another and the Will power of the individual is paramount in that we affirm within our healthiness… I am Well, in the present tense.. not I ‘Want’ to get well. Because the Universe delivers that which we ask for.. so we will always be ‘Wanting’ if you see my meaning

    Love and Blessings Wendi ❤

  21. Thank you Wendi for the great information. I am going to be 78 this month, and am a cancer survivor. I had the surgery in May 2016, and the doctors wanted to give me 6 weeks of radiation on my left breast 5 days a week and 5 years of anti-hormonal treatment. I did all my research carefully and I decided against both. At my age, I would have been more likely to have a heart attack from the radiation, and we women need our hormones to keep us from early aging and also from heart attacks. Here we are coming to the end of 2019 and I am fine. Thank you again.

      • I just saw a special last night with a doctor whose name I am sorry I cannot think of this morning. It was rather late and so I fell asleep right after watching it. The holistic doctor was talking about Alzheimers and also Dementia, and how taking huge amounts of prescribed medications, not getting dental work taken care of, diet, and even the music we listen to can create Alzheimers. Alzheimers, according to this man, who has a clinic that treats these diseases, is called by inflammation of the brain and depression, which both can stem from various aspects of the things I mentioned above. It is important to have movement in our daily activities, and it is important to stop eating fats and fried foods, eat more vegetables and fruits, and to surround ourselves with creativity and positive things. It is basically common sense, and they have had remarkable success with these methods in actually reversing Alzheimers or memory loss. It was on Public TV, and the name of the group had the word Play in it. I hope you or someone else can find it again.

        I had forgotten to write how I used to have fibro really bad years ago. I was working, but at jobs I absolutely hated, even though I was making good money. I have long since realized that I am not all about money – just enough to pay for living quarters and food for my husband and me, and enough for our dogs, cat and two goldfish. I have never had or wanted a brand new car, or other brand new things. I am about helping those with some form of what most people refer to as disabilities. But I call them challenges. In the 1970’s my younger brother and only sibling came home from Vietnam 100% physically (which includes mentally) challenged with a TBI, spinal injury, PTSD permanent and perhaps Agent Orange (we still don’t know for sure, but he has a lot of the symptoms of that). Seeing my brother, who had been a young man of around 18 when he left, gave me the heart to always help people with physical or other challenges. (And when we talk about emotional or mental challenges, as I always told ladies I helped, they sure are not out-of-body experiences are they?) So I got laid off from a big title job that I also hated, and I started a nonprofit to help fiber artists with physical challenges to get exposure for their work that was affordable or free and teaching them professional development. And that was part-time behind the scenes. During the day to earn money to pay living expenses, I became a substitute paraeducator/aide substitute for special needs children and young adults and I loved it so much I continued this line for some 15+ years. I have also tutored such youngsters on the side, and I taught illiterate adults not only how to read, but helped with goal-setting and living skills that most of them did not have. And guess what? I can honestly say that I have NEVER had fibromyalgia again in this lifetime. When it is my time to go, I will feel happy because I found my true calling and I have helped a lot of other people. Life is way too short for any of us as it is, and being able to help others find their way in this world is a good thing, and perhaps the best medicine we can find in the world. It is not to say that any of our challenges are not real; of course they are. Stress does horrible things to good people, and fills them with pain and depression or other issues that doctors just keep giving us more and more medications, and we don’t know all the bad things those medications are doing to our bodies.

        Thank you for your good posts. They are helpful for everyone I think, and there can never be too many of us who are doing these things.

  22. I have used every alternative form there is including medical intuition, energy medicine, and reiki. It all has merit for certain things in certain circumstances. If you read Dr. Joe Dispenza’s book on the Placebo Effect, it will give you a whole new outlook on healing. I have a hard time reading as always with limited vision so I do books like Dr. Joe’s, Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden and Lynn McTaggart on audible. It’s so much easier to digest that way for those of us who learn differently. Mine has been a long path and hope it will be a bit longer. I wish you great luck in finding success in your own path.

  23. I’ve recently been diagnosed with a pulmonary disease. I used to go out on very long walks with the dogs, but I’m having to slow down. I’m thinking of doing something like gentle aqua, Pilates and tai chi.
    Great response on this question!
