My 85 year old mother has been hospitalized for 4 months after complications from gall bladder removal. Partially using a ventilator to breathe at night, she's now developed severe itching all over her body to an extent nothing has helped. Doctor doesn't think this is a problem??? Can't sleep or do anything! Does anyone have any ideas?:confused: :confused:

  • Please do not listen to anything Shula or Acuann tell you. My sister just passed away because Shula and Acuann told her that her doctor was wrong and she did not have a serious condition. Acuann even told her to get acupuncture to get healed. These people are going to be investigated for practicing medicine without a license. Shula and Acuann are specifically wanted in connection with my sisters homocide. Thats right homocide. If she would have listened to her doctor instead of these internet quacks she would still be here today. Rest assured I will do everything in my power to put these two behind bars and shut this website down for good.

As a med student I would never practice medicine online.. usually I just tell folks here to go to the docotor right away. I have seen you post this message alot and hope you find closure. I have been doing research here for some time and knew this would eventually happen. I see Acuann telling everyone to get acupuncture.. sometimes in favor of real medical care for symtoms that could mean different things, some quite serious. I hope they get convicted for what they did, and I hope others learn how bad it is to pretend to be a doctor on the internet practicing medicine in states where you have no license. Have the family attorney or prosecuters office supeona the records from this website so you can get all of Acuanns posts and her IP address to find out where she lives. This evidence will be needed in court for both the criminal and civil cases.

  • This is bull----! Acuann did no such thing and this very disturbed person is posting nonsense everywhere SLANDERING her name. This is a forum- no diagnosis are made, etc. People come to this website FOR INFORMATION.You can't SUE people for posting information!!! This sounds like a BIG SET UP AGAINST ALTERNATIVE HEALERS IN GENERAL. AND YOU- MR. MED. STUDENT. YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF.. YOU ARE GONNA GO LEARN HOW TO PUSH PHARMACEUTICALS FOR BIG COMPANIES. YOU MAY ACTUALLY GET TO HELP SOMEWHAT- BUT YOU'RE HANDS WILL BE TIED WITH SPECIAL INTERESTS, BIG MONEY, HMO'S, ETC. YOU BETTER HAVE REAL GOOD MALPRACTICE INSURANCE BECAUSE THE FOLKS THAT ARE GOING AFTER ACUANN, ETC,, WON'T HESITATE TO TAKE A CHUNK OUT OF YOU, EITHER. WITH OR WITHOUT YOUR LICENSE TO PRACTICE PRESCRIBING EXPENSIVE TESTS AND DRUGS!!!! I PRACTICE ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE, BUT REFER TO A FEW MDS I ACTUALLY TRUST. WITH 14 YEARS AS A MASSAGE THERAPIST, MANY CLIENTS CONFIDE IN ME THAT THEY JUST DON'T FEEL THEIR DOCTORS HAVE THEIR BEST INTERESTS AT HEART--I AGREE COMPLETELY. WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE WHAT WAS OR WASN'T SAID??? SO MUCH FOR PROFESSIONAL DISCERNMENT!!! YOU ARE WILLING TO AGREE WITH THE WITCHHUNT BLINDLY. IN 3 YEARS I WILL HAVE MY LICENSE TOO. I'LL HAVE MY MASTERS IN ACUPUNCTURE- A TIME HONORED AND MOST EFFECTIVE SCIENCE/ART. I MAY EVEN GO FOR THE PH.D. PROGRAM AND CHINA INTERNSHIP. ALSO, WE ARE DOING EXTERNSHIPS WITH STROKE PATIENTS AT VARIOUS CLINICS NOW. wHY??? BECAUSE OUR DISCIPLINE OF MEDICINE IS EFFECTIVE IN THIS AREA, THAT'S WHY. PURE AND SIMPLE. YOU WOULD DO YOURSELF A HUGE FAVOR AND PREVENT LOTS OF PATIENTS IN THE FUTURE FROM LOSING RESPECT FOR YOU - BECAUSE YOU "LAUGH AT THEIR FAITH IN ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE OR HERBS. OR JUST PLAIN SHOW YOUR IGNORANCE IN BEING INFORMED ON WHAT PEOPLE WANT. THIS WILL COME THROUGH IN YOUR MANNERISM AND VIBRATION THAT YOU GIVE OUT. PROGRESSIVE, OPEN MINDED PHYSICIANS WILL BE GETTING MY REFERRALS FOR THEIR SERVICES AND WORKING NON-ANTAGONISTICALLY TO HELP PEOPLE GET BACK TO WELLNESS. YOU WILL PROBABLY BE BURIED IN INSURANCE CLAIMS, MIRED IN ILLNESS MANAGEMENT AND HAVE THE DEAD AND DYING COMING TO YOU FOR DRUGS/ORGAN REMOVAL.CHRONICALLY AND ETERNALLY SICK. JOB SECURITY. TO BE HONEST- I DON'T EVEN THINK THIS ALLEGED INCIDENT OCCURED. I THINK IT WAS DONE BY A GROUP OF WESTERN MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS TO DIS-CREDIT ANY AND ALL INFORMATION SHARING THAT WAS- MIND SOLICITED. THE GIRL EVEN SAID "HER DOCTORS DIDN'T SEEM TO CARE OR HELP HER." MAYBE IF THEY DID THEIR JOB, THIS NONSENSE WOULDN'T HAVE EVOLVED. THE TRUE MEANING OF THE WORD "DOCTOR" IS ONE WHO TEACHES. ALSO, ONE WHO HAS THE HUMILITY TO BE TEACHABLE!!!OTHERWISE, YOUR JUST A STATE-SANCTIONED DRUG PUSHER WITH A PRESCRIPTION PAD OR SCALPEL!!! My sister-in-law went to a local clinic with "headache/neckpain" of unknown etiology. She was given 3 types of NARCOTICS and MUSCLE RELAXERS and XANAX!!! Now- there's someone A PROFESSIONAL WHO SHOULD NOT BE LICENSED TO PRACTICE ANYTHING!!!eTIOLOGY UNKNOWN, NO TESTS- 20 YEARS OLD WITH 3 NARCOTIC RXs and MUSCLE RELAXERS AND XANAX. She sold most of them (street price)made a few hundred dollars so she could buy a car and stop riding the bus to work! And ended up taking TYlenol and Motrin for her problem. Oh yeah I GAVE HER MASSAGE THERAPY AND ICE/HEAT TREAMENTS AND ENERGY WORK (WHICH i'M SURE YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT NOR BELIEVE IN). tHE PAIN WAS ACTUALLY CAUSED BY HER BI-POLAR MOTHER'S BAD BEHAVIOUR AND THREATENING SUICIDE AT HER WORK (HUMILIATING HER) thus the "pain in the neck" WAS ENERGETICALLY--HER MOTHER. She has seen her mom on many "drugs" over the years and knew better then to follow her footsteps, thus selling them to people she knew who did take them. She didn't want to be an addict/victim like her mom. She needed the car- not the DRUGS that were practically thrown at her!!! That Dr. was not a teacher- nor an example of DO NO HARM. What kind of Dr. are you gonna be? Not a compassionate one from what I can see- but then again--I DON"T JUDGE PEOPLE WITHOUT KNOWING THE FACTS OR CIRCUMSTANCESIT'S BAD KARMA AND YOU JUST ATTRACT THAT SORT OF THING RIGHT BACK TO YOURSELF. HOPEFULLY, YOUR ANGELS "GOT YOUR BACK" PEACE~~

It is unfortunate that an internet pretend doctor has caused someones demise. I only hope Acuann and Shula get life sentences for what they do out here. People need doctors not herbs and acuoucture cures. Voodoo doesn't work either.

  • Oh My, After All That Preaching About Self Healing And How Doctors Are Pill Pushers And Then You Start Bragging About Your Sister In Law That Sold The Naractoics For Cash To People Who Are So Addicted To These Drugs - Basically Your Sister In Law Is Feeding The Drug Attic And Your Proud Of That. Shame On You. You Should Have Advised Her To Throw Them Away.

  • Is she also turning yellow? Getting back to the question at hand, because the gall bladder is already part of your mother's ailment, I would say that there is a back up of bile in her body, which would cause sever full-body itching. Your doctor is incorrect, it could mean the gall bladder is not working correctly or is clogged and will require surgery.Hope this helps.....

  • I had severe itching all over during both pregnancies. Have her talk to an Endocrinologist regarding elevated liver enzymes such as bellirubin (not sure of the spelling).
