I can't possibly be the first person to ask this, but ... do MDs, nurses, alternative healers, etc. ever visit here and give their opinions and suggestions? It's good to air our problems and connect with others having similar problems, but it'd be great to get some possible solutions too.

  • There are some medical professionals who are users, yes. But did you bother to look around? Just about every post here has advice or suggestions, and in many instances either by people who have similar symptoms, or by people who had similar symptoms until they finally got a diagnosis. Just about everyone is here because they have medical professionals who are totally clueless about what is wrong with the patient.

  • There are some medical professionals who are users, yes. But did you bother to look around?Did I bother to look around for what? I searched the forums exhaustively for my problem, and there's only one thread related to it. I've also searched the Internet exhaustively, and came to this site because it was the only one I could find that even mentioned it. As for looking around for medical professionals who are users, how would I have done that? I'm not asking this question because I'm lazy. I'm asking because I couldn't find an answer anywhere on the site.

I'm asking because I couldn't find an answer anywhere on the site.These are "keyword" searches, not by context- that's the limitation. Someone may have same problems but just by using a different vocabulary you miss the content in the search.I think you are better off reading posts beyond the orignal posting or tittle, and read into the "advice".What were your symptoms?

  • This is the thread: "Sulfur-Tasting Belches," http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?t=2710. As I said, I've searched Google and other search engines with various keywords, and both spellings of sulfur/sulphur, and this thread is the only thing I found that mentions it at all.

As I said, I've searched Google and other search engines with various keywords, and both spellings of sulfur/sulphur, and this thread is the only thing I found that mentions it at all.Have you really ingested sulphur in the past? Some people might have the same problem, but call it something else because they might not be too familiar with sulphur.Like "acid" "sour" "belching", etc. - and then you want to read into the advice given to people with similar problems.Rule of thumb: Try Oriental Medicine, Try Naet, for now avoid processed food, wheat, and drink as much pure water as possible.Best

If you don't mind, I'll copy them back to the other thread.However, the sulfur belches were just a one-time, short-term thing for me, so I'm not following up on that anymore. I started this thread because I genuinely wondered whether trained medical people ever jumped into the discussions to offer their opinions and suggestions. "unregistered" says yes, but I guess it's just an occasional thing and we can't count on it regularly.And NAET is ... Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique, yes?

  • hi eatafruit78, how did you find out about NAET in the beginning and what made you think it would help you? just wondering what got you started. jadYes- I was so sick I was just using the little energy I had to research on how to cure myself. At some point I was just in Google doing keyword searches to the point of incoherence. I was just typing the word allergy and any other word I could think of.The google results took me to amazon.com to a book called "Allergy Free". I went ahead and read the table of content and the index of the book online. I could never find the book (out of stock) but I found in the table of content all kind of alternative names and terminologies. I read that there was a whole chapter on "NAET" - I was not familiar- but hey the word "Elimination" pop in my eyes and I said "I must try this!"So I never read the book "Allergy Free: The Ultimate Alterntive Guide to Allergy Elimination", instead I went to NAET online, read the testimonials and made a phonecall to a naet person w/o reference. Well, I found that this person had been interviewed in a Nationwide Newspaper and she is also the president of an Acupuncture Association, etc- so I went ahead and made an appointment after chatting with her in the phone for a few minutes.The rest- you pretty much know.

  • I have had the same symptoms in the pas and currently. My findings is that the cause is an uninvited dinner guest.it's called "Giardia Lamblia" it is a parasite! 20% of North American get it but doctors are not accustomed to the symptoms. If you go to a third world Dr. he would prescribe a 2 pill remedy. The only drug approved for treating giardiasis in the U.S. is furazolidone (Furoxone) for 7-10 days.a little more reading on the subject: www.medicinenet.com/giardia_lamblia/article.htm (be sure to read the patients comments on page 5)
