went to a fibro "specailist" last week & was upset that all he was peddlin was the SHINE protocol & the book From Fatigued to Fabulous, which i have full access to so why would i pay him? he wanted me to take DGL, ADR & LVR. i asked for some test before just jumping into treatment & he ordered some, but i dunno - why didn't my GP (who i trust) order them? i did not like the guy, & am not huge on alternative treatments anyway. i tried them for 10 years, refusing all drugs for a decade, with little results. anyway, i also have a friend on me about this - on me about using herbals & acupuncture & stuff. i've tried acupuncture, it made me worse not better. (& another friend who's on about gluten free, & anther on about carb free, etc. etc blah blah) can someone give some advice?
