I am constantly doing research on how to heal my body naturally. I check up on supplements and I certainly don’t take one person’s word for it. I look for more than one source, a reliable one.
I have muscle tenderness in my hips and seems like nothing I am doing is working. I am continuing the massaging, tens unit and heat therapy but it is still aggravated. I, of course, began to research that as well.
I may be self-diagnosing here, but I am thinking Fibromyalgia. I was reading a site on that and so many things I have been to the doctor for (or not been) are listed there. Muscle tenderness, depression, some of my skin hurts to touch (blood pressure cuffs are killer), diarrhea and constipation on and off all my life and on and on I could go.
I was checking into milk allergies when I found this one site that was touting natural cures for symptoms. One of the thing was stay away from caffeine. Period. Caffeine causes inflammation. Well, that’s good to know. I don’t drink coffee and I quit drinking diet soft drinks and teas back in September, 2011. BUT, what did I forget about? Chocolate.
I have been eating 1/2 a square to 1 square of Newman’s Own organic super dark chocolate bar nightly because chocolate is supposed to be so wonderful for you. According to this site, I will feel better in days if I stop eating it.
OK…here we go. Theory going to the test….again. 🙂
