I have not had bloodwork to check my levels, are they worth the expense?
would i need to have regular bloods? how often
I have now changed my zinc timing, so this morning i had 50mg zinc with 2mg copper with breakfast. after a week i will re-assess, but how will i know if 50mg isn't enough?
the reason i don't eat cow liver, is my doctor is well against red meat consumption, saying the dangers / harm associated with eating red meat, especially in MS patients.
but like you said, wild game would be very different, so ill try and find a butcher who sells wild game organs and meat
does the benefit outweigh the risks associated the eating red meat?
- i will start eating shrimp and scallops (yuck
cup of greens : kale, spinach, cabbage, lettuce, etc
sulphur: brocolli, mushrooms, onions, cauliflower, asparagus ,
colours: peppers, turnips, beetroot, grapes, radishes, carrot
seeds: pumpkin, seasame, hemp, flax, sunflower seeds - half a desert spoon of each with lunch and dinner
i stopped eating nuts about two weeks into the diet as i assumed this was why my eczena was getting worse, but it continues not to heal, so i might go back on nuts
- i sometimes have salmon/tuna with lunch as well,
i have 1 desert spoon of nutritional yeast with breakfast
- - I also have Bentonite Clay foot baths every other day for 30 minutes each time, to detox heavy metals - as recommended in Dr Wahls' book
by the way, i just bought some 'zinc and castor' cream, to use on the sore sinus, so that will hopefully help
after applying the cream, here is a photo of the sinus. warning: for those who can stomach it!:http://tinypic.com/r/34e6sgi/6
- the shiny skin around the sinus is the zinc & castor cream after it was rubbed in
you can see a raised area above to the right of the sinus, im guessing this is the collecting of pus?
i may have an epsom salt bath , if it will help
from the nhs website- http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Pilonidal- ... ction.aspx
A pilonidal sinus can become infected by bacteria, causing pain and swelling. A pus-filled abscess can then develop within the sinus. This will require an operation to open the sinus up and drain away any pus, bacteria or other waste materials. A pilonidal sinus will not cause any symptoms until it becomes infected.
If a pilonidal sinus becomes infected, it should be treated immediately to prevent the infection spreading. It is important to stop the infection spreading into the blood (called sepsis) as this can be serious.
You may initially be treated with antibiotics, but you will also need to have the pus drained out of the abscess. This is called incision and drainage.
If the sinus keeps becoming infected, surgical removal of the sinus is usually recommended.
After reading all of the comments at the bottom of that page, reading person after person taking antibiotics, then surgery, months later, the same all over again,... i cant help but doubt zinc can cure this problem? or can it
wont i be having the problems im having now, 10 months down the line..
Do you feel intensive nutrition and the supplements i take are sufficient treatment for P.S
i feel sooo weak today, i can barely walk a few metres, compare that to before starting the diet where i could walk 100 metres no problem!
it must be the sore pilonidol sinus weakening my legs so much, well i hope so :s
its quite demoralising, changing my lifestyle and diet for the past 5 weeks, sacrificing tasty food so that my disability improves and all its done is get worse and worse!
JL, you have guided me and provided me with more help than any doctor has,
so thank you
