These quacks I've been seeing know zero about this, yet I've been reading this for years and know it for a fact as I was given a round of strong antibiotics about two years ago that caused all kinds of mood changes, and not for the better. It took probiotics over a period of a few weeks to get back on track, and I drank unfiltered apple cider vinegar to alkalize my body.
The pill pushers are finally falling in line with what the health food experts have been saying for years.
As a person with that lives with chronic pain, I have come to realize that the medical establishment knows very little to nothing when it comes to certain illness and various health problems even if these problems have been with us forever. For people that live with either chronic fatigue, chronic pain, and/or fibromyalgia you live in this weird grey area of reality where you are neither a fully healthy person or someone who is an invalid who is unable to get out of bed, and society as well as the medical community as a whole can't wrap their head around that concept that such a problem exists and that it is an issue that is not that uncommon.
Recently I even had an argument with my "pain management specialist" and she both admitted that she couldn't make heads or tails of the occupational evaluations that are created and sent to her that are used to determine whether I can work or not as well as believing that since she too suffers from what she thinks is "chronic pain" and takes adleve many days before she comes to work but still manages to work and have a regular life despite her "pain"; which nearly caused me to freak out since she should know better since I have spent several hours explaining how chronic pain and regular pain are not the same thing, she has several years of schooling and training that she tell her the difference, and she is the one that needs to now better since she is the one that signs the scripts which allows me to get the pain medication that I need every day in order for me to survive.
It is even crazier to realize that the medical community has no clear way of being able to tell the difference between mild day to day pain and the kind of pain and the kind of pain where a person is about to go into shock other than how perhaps how they are behaving. For them if a person is sitting still and being quite then it can't be all that bad no matter what they are saying unless they get up out of their sits and start screaming their heads off or fall out of theirs and spazzing out on the floor.
