nah, unfortunately doctors in this country are for the most part horrible and like you said i gave up on them a while ago. since i was on an individual HMO plan i had to have my general doctor refer me to another specialist. i tried getting referred to a naturopath and endocrinologist a long time ago but my (multiple) attempts were unsuccessful. she never gave me a referral but was quick to want me on antidepressants and gladly sent me to a dermatologist LOL
yea you are right. they certainly couldnt find out what was wrong after years of going back and forth spending hundreds of dollars for blood tests that did absolutely nothing. western doctors just look at symptoms and prescribe a drug for them. they dont actually look into the root problem of what could be causing it.
i dont know about how much i lost on each flush but its only been now where i've become so bad i can barely walk. i stopped with the Epsom Salts a few days ago.
