Today I graduated from 1 wk to 2 wk treatment. So that's a total of 5 I've had. Today I can say I really am getting some pain relief. I have a pattern of the pain escalating for a few days post treatment and then it drops off lower than it was before the treatment. She said that was normal because that pain has been in the muscles for so long. I feel we are getting into very old pain. It feels like it's coming off in layers. The sciatic pain is especially better. So, I'd say it's worth a try. But be aware it is a slow process and not necessarily pain free. That "rebound" pain is managable with heat, exercise, plenty of fluids, and rest. If I absolutely have to, I take a couple of Nuprin, even though my gastro doesn't want me to. Tylenol is useless. Hope this may offer relief for somebody. I'm off to first appt. with naturopath next week. I have high hopes.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
