Since 1999 I have experimented with mostly non-prescription, over-the-counter (OTC) supplements and treatments to address hypoglycemia, brain fog, hypothyroidism, stigmata*, and a bunch of other annoyances.
After finding success in treating my depression with a gluten-free diet, I had followed the logic that since celiac disease (for which a gluten-free diet is the solution) results in malabsorption and thus nutritional deficiencies, my health problems were most likely caused by nutritional deficiencies. (BTW, you don’t have to be a celiac to have nutritional deficiencies.) That was the approach I took, with a few detours into acupuncture and Armour thyroid, until mid-2015, when I discovered that mold avoidance and detox significantly improved many of my health issues.
I still use only non-Rx treatments for health issues, but the huge reduction in inflammation throughout my body means my body reacts to them differently. I am slowly updating the site to reflect these changes in thinking and experience, but it will be a while before I can visit every post. The gist of it is described very briefly in this post.
If you’re here you’ve probably noticed that the American medical establishment has no interest in the non-Rx approach and, when they do deign to discuss it, don’t know what the #%@! they’re talking about anyway. Over the years I’ve found accounts of individuals’ and practitioners’ personal experiences to be very helpful, so I created this blog to add my voice to the mix. (And so that I no longer have to bore my family and friends with tales of my experiments.)
I stopped publishing in 2013 but still answer comments and emails (marjorie at adnuther.com) and occasionally update posts.
*Not really about the stigmata.
