Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for Sept 03, 2005

Today is my follow up appointment with the naturopath. Yesterday was my last dose of the ultra flora pills. I didn’t think it was making a difference so I won’t bother getting a second batch. Besides, it’s forty dollars a bottle!

In the waiting area I grab a book from the shelf called “Natural Cures They Don’t Want You To Know About” by Kevin Trudeau. I remember my wife telling me about one of his infomercials and we had a brief discussion about it a while back. So I start reading the first chapter and was blown away with what I read. The naturopath then calls me into her office and I put the book down.

My basal temperature readings for the past week are as follows:

Tuesday- 36.37

Wednesday- 36.02

Thursday- 36.15

Friday- 36.25

Saturday- 35.95

I compare them to the last set of readings and they are not much different. I still have the cold body temperature. Interesting but what does it mean?

We talk about the effects of the Candida diet. No real improvement and still vibrating. I also mention about the mild chest pain when I took the B complex vitamins and she said there should be no side effects so I mention sympathy pregnancy. She tells me of a hormone test and shows me a chart of symptoms for each of the three hormones they test for. Estrogen, Andogen and Cortisol.

The Cortisol Deficiency symptoms are interesting. From the ten listed, I appear to have five (*) of them and possibly seven.

Cortisol (Adrenal Function) – Check List For Men

  1. Fatigue*
  2. Sugar craving *
  3. Allergies*
  4. Chemical sensitivity
  5. Stress?
  6. Cold body temperature *
  7. Arthritis
  8. Heart palpitations*
  9. Aches/pains?
  10. Decreased concentration*

Could the stress be the internal vibrations? The doctor said in my first appointment that internal vibrations are usually caused by stress.

The test is expensive so I tell her I’ll think about it. We are only two months away now and why spend the money if I don’t need to. I’ve waited this long so what’s a little bit longer? She recommended another test that would be a lot cheaper. A Hair Analysis Test.

Drug and chemical residues, toxins, heavy metals, and radiation present in the body embed in hair fiber protein as it grows. Hair has the advantage of long-term memory. It’s a permanent record, like tree rings. A three-inch strand of human hair will give a six-month history of what’s going on in the body since head hair grows at a rate of about a half an inch a month.

Clinical research indicates that hair levels of specific elements, particularly toxic elements, correlate with pathological disorders. For such elements, the levels in the hair provide a superior indication of body stores opposed to blood or urine specimens. This is one reason hair element tests are preferred for drug testing and forensics.

Within polluted environments, accurate decisions on how to clean up toxic spills cannot be made without performing soil and water analyses of the effected area. So it is with a hair analysis for the human body. The hair analysis identifies the root of illness. The key to a good hair analysis is in the interpretation – a lost art amid traditional medicine, yet a critical step in disease recovery.

Next week is my appointment with the gastro specialist. Let’s try the Hair Analysis in the meantime. She snips a sample of my hair and she’ll call me when the results are back.

I start googling again and discover a link between low adrenals and how the adrenal gland is responsible for the production of cortisol. Now I’m back to thinking it’s all about sympathy pregnancy and only one thing can happen to see if the symptoms go away…

THE BIRTH!!!

Follow up with my doctor and the ultrasound results are in!

He comes into the room with the report and tells me there was no sign of any tapeworm. He goes on to list everything that was checked. The kidneys, liver, pancreas, stomach, and the gallbladder. The end result? Everything was normal. I felt really stupid leading him down this wrong path of tapeworms and for this appointment, I could tell he was maybe a little annoyed with me. He now had the attitude “I’m the doctor and YOU are the patient”

Somewhat humbled, I handed him a list of my new symptoms. The heart palpitations, the pinching in my head, the twiching followed by a flush, the chest pain, the stiff neck pain. He agrees that something is wrong but he doesn’t feel he can do anything more without seeing a specialist.

At this point, I didn’t mention about the naturopath as I didn’t think he would like the fact that I’ve asked for a second opinion. I had the basal temperature readings with me and I was going to mention the thyroid again but because he wasn’t interested in my recent symptoms, I kept it to myself and I didn’t mention the candida diet either.

Maybe I’m going mental. We are now six months along in the pregnancy and maybe it’s just sympathy after all. Nothing is showing up in these test results. I follow up again with the naturopath next week so let’s see what she says.

I’m really starting to think that there is nothing wrong. The Candida diet isn’t showing the significant results I was hoping for and I am still taking the ultra flora. Still not sure if it’s having any effect. I haven’t had the bloated feeling in a while but as I’ve said before, it’s so inconsistant I can’t say for certain if it’s making a difference. I’m starting to get real tired of eating pears all of the time. It is still working for the vibrations but I’m just sick of eating them.

When I follow up with the naturopath, I’ll mention sympathy pregnancy.

Still vibrating

Day One: Felt slightly bloated early in the morning, fine by the afternoon

Day Two: Felt slightly bloated early in the morning, fine by the afternoon

Day Three: Today is the end of my three day pineapple diet and I feel great. I had a veggie burger for dinner so what made me feel better? The pineapple diet or the veggie burger?

So after two months I’m still vibrating and my doctor is no closer to solving the puzzle. So far I’ve discovered that pears and pineapples make me feel good so maybe it’s time to visit a Naturopath. I check my work coverage and they will pay eighty percent.

It’s not thyroid, it’s not a tapeworm. Could it be sympathy pregnancy?

Who knows…??? Back to Google. I spend most of the evening looking for something else to match my symptoms. I come across a web site that explains the importance of maintaining the balance of your PH level in your body. The body is normally alkaline and a poor diet can change the PH level to acidic making you prone to illness and disease. I find another web site that list the different types of foods that can have an effect on your PH level. On the list for Alkaline foods is Pineapple and Pears. WOW! The two things that make me feel better. I wonder if I can get a PH home testing kit to find out if my body is acidic.

I’m back in Shoppers Drug Mart and I spend a long time in each isle looking for a PH tester and I can’t find anything. I go to the back and ask the Pharmacist if they have a home testing Blood PH kit. She says they don’t carry them. Weird…if the PH balance of the body is so important, why don’t they sell it?

Around this time my wife and I are starting to buy things for the baby and for a while now I’ve noticed that I feel sick everytime we go into the Toys R Us store on Thickson Road. I didn’t think much of it before now but it seems to happen everytime we are in the store.

Sounds like sympathy pregnancy…
