For the last five years New Years Eve and New Years Day has been a lot of me convincing myself that “this is going to be my year.” It felt like I had a tough hill to climb and i could never see the other side – until now.
2012 was good to me. And in 2013 I will continue my quest to cure myself so i can then one day tell you i did it and maybe it can help someone out there who is in pain. I’ve tried a lot of things and almost all of the natural things have helped as long as I listen to my body.
I have said before, i believe RSD is caused by nutritional imbalance that shows itself upon injury and creates mind-blowing pain when the body is attempting to heal itself. The body is essentially stuck in an inflammatory response. It is then made horrifically worse with medicines which have their own unintended nutritional consequences. Many of the drugs we take cause further nutritional deficiencies. There is no one thing that works because each of us is different, has a different diet, lifestyle etc.
I could be wrong…but based on what I have experienced, I don’t think I am. I realize those of us who have suffered repetitive nerve injury may not fall into this category… except my nerve injury basically healed after a year. Why didn’t my body chill out after that?
This week I have an appointment with a cardiologist who runs the IV nutritional therapy center. I am excited to discuss with him the potential for high dose C, K and magnesium – the three i am quite sure will help me. If I saturate my cells with these vitamins, will that kick me into a remission? I hope to report back that it does.
