Almost exactly a year ago I had never tried things like chiro care, acupuncture, massage, much less nutritional response testing. My daughter had gotten really sick, was hospitialized for 10 days due to not being able to keep down anything, not even water for almost 10 days before being hospitalized. For about 3 months she was in pain curled up in the fetal position and the doctors had put her on oxycodone for the pain, as the problem was in her liver so nothing else could be given for the pain. They finally diagnosed her with something so rare that she was only the 25th documented case of it and we had the Mayo clinic verify this diagnosis because they had diagnosed her with something else a month and a half earlier and they were wrong. Their answer was prednisone, which if on it for very long will kill the kidneys. Like most big pharma drugs, they fix one thing, maybe, but cause other problems, usually probably worse than the original one. There is so much to this story but I'll try to keep it short. Once she was on the lowest dose of prednisone the problems just came back. She had 2 MRI's, 3 EGD's, 2 liver biopsies, among many many other tests done by main stream medicine. This is the answer main stream medicine has for us, big machines to test you on and big pharma drugs to "cure" you with. Midway through the doctors still not diagnosing her I took her to an NRT doctor, which ran a complete bloodwork on her and was way more detailed than any blood test the main stream doctors did on her. They are restricted by what insurance allows. I tried to work with both doctors, but the main stream doctors did not want her to take any pill until they figured out what she had, even though their blood tests showed she was deficient in a few vitamins. I was stupid and listened to them at first, until they gave me a diagnosis, put her on prednisone and then the pain just came back the week of her lowest dose. I've asked them and that was their only answer. I finally wised up and started listening to the NRT doctor instead and a year later from the start of all of this and about 9 months later from my daughter starting to take the supplements the NRT doctor recommended, I have my little girl back...she's not so little, she's 20 now, but she'll always be my little girl. The pain is gone along with many other bad symptoms and her energy level is back, she is feeling great now and still healing and still taking the supplements. I seriously thought I was going to lose her at one point. Who knows how she would be now if I had not found the NRT doctor. She is not taking prednisone and even the Mayo clinic thought she would be on it the rest of her life. To go from being in pain for 3 months in the fetal position to being so full of energy the way she is now, well you can't fake it or have it be a placebo affect when it's this big of an affect..allthough the mind does play a huge part in our health.
Also, I did this myself and have had amazing improvements in my own health and again, a placebo affect would only last a short while and eventually you wouldn't feel any better when it's something major going on with you. I would suggest this even if you are feeling a little off. Many feel like they have something wrong with them but aren't quite sure what and main stream medicine doesn't help with you just not feeling quite right, but NRT addresses it. Most diseases start slowly and most people don't do anything about it until it's maybe too late or has come to a serious stage where you end up in the emergency room or the hospital. If you don't feel quite right do something about it and see an NRT doctor.
