  4. Hi Calli, If you have Hashmoto's, the autoimmune hypothroidism, not all thyroid medicines work. Most don't do anything for T3, which is affected by Hashmoto's. I was on Synthroid for 15 years; it was prescribed to me by 2 different endocrinologist at 2 different practices. I was extremely frustrated with still having so many symptoms. I found a different practice* and during the evaluation one of the first questions she asked is " "Why are you on Synthroid?" She put me on Nature Thyroid and I'm so much better! I lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks and the medicine was my only change! It's very inexpensive, and unlike Synthroid, doesn't contain gluten or milk for those with allergies. Fyi: My diagnoses Hashmoto's, Sjogrens, Celiacs, RA, Raynaud's, and I some neuropathy. Prescriptions: Nature Thyroid, Nabumetone, LDN (starting low &slow) 1/4 of a tablet nightly)Vitamin D, Folic Acid. I take other vitamins as well. Keep asking questions like you're doing. Patient blogs are terrific and have helped me along the way to better health. Weaning off Plaquinil. My new rheumy and hubby encouraged me to try again. I have and too many side effects. I asked the practice* who switched my thyroid med about and she asked, ever here of LDN. I said no and she said though not. Started LDN this week and so far so good. The only side effect are vivid dreams, but they are better than the scary dreams I had with Plaquinil (among a lot of other side effects). We all know (The Patients), we are all different and not everthing works for everyone. Keep pushing and keep reading. We have 1 body, 1 life. Despite the odds, I'm going to whatever I can to be here for my family as long as I can and enjoy it! I take other vitamins as well. Good luck and Good Health! <3 RKN
  5. Thanks Hank for this advice from 9 years ago. I am following your lead. Toenail fungus; tinea; venous eczema; I too have given up on the tourniquet but have mild ankle swelling as a result; a bunion and associated foot pain. I'll try anything! Cheers Antipod
  6. still have this or know where I can get the HFA-4AV?
  7. I have been using the powder since april of 2018 and it works wonderful for me after fighting fungal infections from using hearing aids. I initially recieved 10 capsules and have not use but seven. I will say that I keep the bulb double bagged in two zip top bags and have not had a problem with it clumping. it stays in powder form and I just shake the bulb well before use. My doctor also gave me a couple of the black scope tuble they use to look down in your ear with to stick in the ear so the bulb insulfinator never touch the ear canal. I use about six puffs in each ear with forceful pumps.
  8. I'm looking for a scoby too in Northwest Indiana..guess I'm going to have to buy a bottle of kombucha and start my own...
