sinead - August 27

what an asshole. there are many good doctors out there! I suggest you find another one.


Virg - August 27

I'd give anything to be able to do aerobics.
Tell him what I told a Dr. who said it's all
in our heads. "You're wasting my time!"
and just walk out!


Lynne - August 27

I dunno if I can say what I would of told that doctor...and I agree with Virg I would love to do aerobics I worry about my health because of lack of aerobic activity but my doctors won't allow it for me.

FMS causes us to fill up with "jello"-like excess and thickened Hyaluronan. Are you acidic? Check your Saliva pH. If you are acidic, you can bring your pH to normal and see weight roll off.


strawberry - August 28

hi again Anne. how do I bring my pH to normal and see weight roll off???? thankyou!


JJ - August 28

I thought excess Hyaluronan is good for you (actually helps inflammation and pain)


mary-jo - August 28

you need to tell that jerk to fuck off, who the hell does he think he is? what about the men who have it? the skinny minnies? what a retard......... I'm so sick of this bs from "experts" dammit!!!

I am going to do several posts because this is long but is about Saliva ph:


Saliva pH testing.
The pH of your saliva moves from high to low according to what you eat in your diet over a period of time. Tear off a strip of pH test paper 1-2" long and hold it below your mouth so that you can spite a small amount of saliva onto an end of the strip. Shake the extra spittle off of the end of the strip and compare the change in color of the moistened end to the color chart. Note on a piece of paper that you can record on from day to day the number of the pH value. Do this at the very beginning of each day before you have put anything whatsoever in your mouth. This will be your "normal" saliva pH before being changed by things going into your mouth or the events of the day.
Keep this record in a secure and convenient location so that you can record the values in successive days. This is the simplest, most bare-bones pH test routine. You just look at the one reading at the start of the day and compare it to the prior day's readings. If the change is towered a slightly alkaline reading 7.0 - 7.4, as the days progress, then you are on the right track. If there is no change or the readings are moving away from the proper range, then you are not doing enough correct actions to improve your health. These values, by the way, can be much affected by emotional and mental states of the individual. Take note if this seems to apply when you evaluate the pH values.

What Do the Numbers Mean?
5.5-6.0: State of health is mildly poor or very poor. Anxiety or chronic stress could also be dominating the physiology. If mental/emotional factors are not the cause, improving diet, detoxification and exercise will move the values up to the correct range.
6.2-7.0: Usually indicates that emotions are not getting the best of physiology. This range improves more easily with improvement in diet, a detoxification program and some exercise where there was not enough before. "Improving diet" for those with a pH below 7.0 means eating 70% or more foods from the alkaline-ash* list of foods daily.
7.2-8.0: Diet isn't a major problem unless stably above 7.4 Vegetarians commonly fall in this high pH range and can be headed toward exhaustion. Worry and anxiety can be overriding the positive benefits they get from their good diets. When worry and too much stress is not the case, the physical handling is to include more rice cereals and other acid-ash in their diets to tone down the pH. (See acid-ash and alkaline-ash foods list, attached.) Also, mild detoxification and exercise may be of benefit to improve conditions Here, in a quick glance, is how you can test and evaluate your body's pH. Monitoring your saliva pH can help you improve your diet and other lifestyle characteristics so that your health can be under your control.
There are two other types of pH tests that can be done. The first is called the "saliva stress test" and the second tests one's urine. Both tests are more complicated to do than the one given here and will be the subject of a later writeup.

i have heard that a high protein diet will cure fibro, a psychic actually told me that. I am a vegetarian but CANNOT bring myself to eat animals. I'd rather stay sick.........

continued again..............
Acid-ash / alkaline ash: The ash factor means when food is burned or metabolized by the body, what is it's pH value - acid or alkaline. Some foods, oranges or apple cider vinegar, for instance, are acid before metabolizing and alkalizing afterwards.

DEENIE - August 28

can you simplfy the jist of your post please... I wan to understand........thank you :)


Jolie - August 29

Alternative Names: Briquet's syndrome

Definition: Somatization disorder is a chronic condition in which there are numerous physical complaints -- lasting for years and resulting in substantial impairment -- that are caused by psychological problems and for which no underlying physical problem can be identified.



Jolie - August 29

sorry.. put that in the wrong place.


Manita - September 2

That's BS! I have never been over 125lbs throughout my entire life and I have classic fibromyalgia. Yes, my doctor said that excercising will improve the symptoms, but fibro is not limited to a certain weight class.
