can understand what you are going through. my neighbor who just got out of the hospital from surgery is probably feeling the same way. That he is getting older and all these things are happening to him. He still is suffering from the sciatica pain for 2 months .

Okay, now we're getting someplace!! This sounds like a good beginning!! On the foods, if you google..Nightshade Plants..you'll find the ones he mentioned and more and that these cause inflammation in the body and, therefore, a source of pain. Sounds crazy, but it's worth a try staying away from them. I am a big supporter of healthy eating!! Most people that I know of personally don't really understand what "healthy" eating actually is. It's a term often misused by the food industry to boost sales of foods that are not healthy at all!! I'm glad this man is leading you in the right direction!

Here's some more information on foods that cause inflammation and pain. Making these changes can be confusing at first, but it gets easier and becomes natural to you in time. Keep researching and studying, maybe look for public forums on the topic, making lists and learn how to shop differently. Search at websites that do not have something to sell, that are only providing reliable information.

Just losing weight alone can help with arthritis and your knees! You're going to feel better soon!! It does take time, though, and it's a lifetime thing to keep up with. I'm excited for you, keep us informed!

no don't have a clue why on those 3 things.

I just took this assessment for him to set up me up on what to eat...it asked some of the dumbest questions...asked

are you financial happy????

are you happy with your sex life?

does it hurt when you have sex?

WTF????? what the hell does that have to do with food?????


Sorry this made me laught...did he ask the color, texture and smell of your poo too.

I can see the stress part..maybe he thinks if you are net getting that loving feeling or if the milkman when he comes no longer brings flowers ...just wants to party...that may be bringing you down lmbo!!

you just never know what they will ask.

Grant was asked stuff like this on his sleeping test...over and over in different ways...so annoying and embarassing too

Good you're getting it taken care of Bobbye.

Sounds like a lot coming up especially with the diet, but you can do it and think how much better you're going to feel!

Will you have exercises too?

Karyn I told him about riding my stat. bike and he said that was ok. And that is far as the exercise talk has gone. But I have just started so we will see about more exercises

Hugs I talked to my mother early and she said someone had told her to stop eating potatoes also. He told me that because of my alleriges and sinus. And my mom said someone told her that potatoes has something in them that messes your allergies up.

He said what we eat controls our entire body. So we will see.


I believe the what we eat controls our entire body,
Interesting on those questions too
I sure hope this helps & works & please keep us informed

I'd be gone - but maybe he wants to know your stress level - have you done a complete research on this guy? - He should give you references you can talk to - for me - something is amiss - but that's just me.


Why does something seem wrong to you with this dr??? And yes he came highly recommened from a very good friend of mine that had been in a bad wreck and had a really messed up back. He helped her.
