How are you feeling now Showlin? I hope that you have been to a Dr. some herbal medicines can cause unwanted side effects just like pharmacy meds. It sounds like to have kidney stones and/or gall stones. Both can be extremely painful and can cause dangerous infections. If all else fails, go to the er to get treated. I really hope you are ok, since you haven’t posted lately. Best of all light to you.

Update:

So much has happened since I posted this,long story short,I stopped taking all of my herbal medicines,and focused on a excercise routine everyday. I still have not taken any(with the exception of Hemp Oil and Honey everyday). Surprisingly enough,the result has not been horrendous,but rather quite bearable. I got back on a moderate dosage of medicine previously prescribed,and it has been a painful and strenuous challenge,but I have managed to recover at least to a adequate degree,so that I can function daily. I have access to Chiropractic and Hearing doctors now,and plan to fully utilize them,because I am still suffering from mild back pain and experience bleeding\pain in my ears. I have also managed to gain 30 Lbs,both of fat and muscle,and still have about 10lbs to go before I reach my maximum weight,and now that winter is here,I look forward to working out,and practicing Water Qigong for the duration of the Season(Winter is associated with the Kidneys in TCM,so now is also a perfect time to work on healing and strengthening them). However,as im sure you all know,now more than any other time would be critical for my immune system,so I intend on taking all of the herbal medicine I was previously taking and plan to keep investing in more as I can afford them. Along with this,I am planning on starting a Full Body Detox,and have heard that it can be very extreme. Just as always,my health is a work in progress but as a result of forcing myself to excercise and practice Qigong everyday,I am in a much better position to function and focus on rebuilding my health. In addition with Therapy and Pharmaceuticals,and dedicating much more of my day practicing Qigong,Yoga,and Muscle-Building exercises,I am positive that I can rebuild my health to top quality,and be able to finally live the rest of my life at the highest quality possible while not worrying about health issues getting the way.

I still have much research to do in reguarding all Herbs(and combinations of them) for the Immune system,but in the meantime, am applying all that i learn so that I have the strongest Immune system possible. I will admit that it is quite tedious to take so much medication without fail everyday,but i find it fun and exciting,as general heath regarding the Immune System has only upside.

Glad to hear you’re feeling better! I’ve been taking turkey tail mushroom powder three times daily...it’s excellent to build the immune system. Check it out! Also eating root vegetables, garlic, ginger etc. helps the immune system especially in the winter.

I know I shared with you I had similar symptoms along with other weird symptoms that came and went. I never got a diagnosis from a doctor, but I found an amazing naturopathic doctor who ran several blood tests and turns out I have bartonella...a co infection of Lyme disease that affects every system in the body producing a wide range of symptoms. Also found out my blood type and eating a diet specific to it. The bloodwork showed I was high in certain nutrients but very low in others, so if I can give any advice based on my experience I would say to have bloodwork done before throwing just any vitamins and herbs in the mix...it can do more harm than good.

Awesome! I've never heard of Turkey tail mushroom before,and look forward to researching it. Garlic and Ginger i want to include in my supplements aswell. The great thing about all of these herbs is that they can be found plentifully and have been around for along time. What kind of naturopathic doctor should I be looking for if I want bloodwork done? I have a PCP but have never really needed to see him,but I might give him a call soon.

You’ll love the turkey tail mushroom. Might be cheaper to buy actual fresh garlic bulb (not the jarred pre-chopped stuff) as well as a fresh ginger root and just slice off a piece and eat it as opposed to buying them as supplements.

The holistic/naturopathic doctor I see doesn’t take insurance and she’s expensive, but if you have a regular doctor you can see for bloodwork that would be good. Most PCP’s will order just the very basic blood tests and not care to look much further beyond that, and if something does look a little off they don’t care to address it with anything more than prescription pills because that’s all they know how to do...address symptoms...not look for an underlying cause or root of a problem. Regular doctors have their place and conventional medicine saves lives in certain circumstances...by all means, I’m NOT suggesting you shouldn’t listen to them...however, I strongly recommend educating yourself first so that you can REQUEST they order certain specific blood tests.

It is OK to mix western and eastern. I have been having a lot of health things come up as well and really needed to surrender to the process of seeing doctors because I was so focused on natural medicine. Leaning it is ok to have both .
