Bobitty, yes I will try echinacea next time, no more antibiotics for this lady! I'm thinking I must have some kind of infection and my immune system is not working properly, guess the haemagologist will do more test to find out just what is going on. I rarely get ill except for the odd heavy cold which is why I couldn't understand the gunk in my mouth. It's a bit better today, I suppose the Nilstat is dealing with that as well as the thrush, Ugh! I've been swallowing the gunk, no wonder I feel crook. lol. Pixie

I am finding at certain times of the Month,I have headaches,and the feeling of being bloated,cross and twitty livered.I used to put it down to PMT.But thats not my case now.So I decided to really study myself and my symptoms.And guess what?I am a LUNATIC.
Yep,you read right.So me thinks,if the Moon can pull the Tides around to suit itself,my poor brain has not a show in hell of fighting it.Accidents seemes to happen more often during the full moon too.Many people consider this a False statement,but I am not so sure in my case.Oh well,I gotta blame something,I suppose.Any body out there have any strange happenings at this time of the Month?

good for you Pixie..you gotta get rid of it once and for all.
Pearly the oil bit does sound awful..I have seen other ways of doing the same thing with softening gall stones. You even eat some bread with it. it has to be on the net somewhere. I will keep looking...
Ramona I think you said it all with the comment about twitty livered. the liver is responsible for lots of headaches, sick stomachs and bloat. the moon can affect when this occurs, but it is still an overworked liver that is at fault. too much bread and other starches, plus fatty takeaways, plus chockies etc overload the liver, and it has to come out somewhere. Take a note of where the headache is next time. Is it across the top of the head? Do you feel nauseated as well?
Oh Boy,I've been found out.Bobbity,that is my Diet to the tee.
I love my chocs and I eat plenty of Grain bread.I am a takeaway aholic,when I can too.Guilty as charged.Bobbity you are a wealth of great advice.And I thank you.My liver does too.
You a re welcome Ramona! ..hoho
If you find you can't fix the diet bit try 'Liver Cleanse'..a herbal product from NSP..It is marvellous for the liver, gallbladder, pancreas and kidneys A good hit all at once. i get mine at cost price and keep it on hand all the time. I take it when necessary...there's another one really good for the liver too..it's called 'Gall Bladde' formula', but it works very well on the liver too. I keep that on hand as well as a good alternative..it has some different herbal ingredients in it.
Mind you if you are on drugs, from memory you are, we would have to check for any possible bad combinations first.

A scan showed I had a gallstone and the hospital scheduled an operation for me in the October of that year (10 months from the time of diagnosis)
I wasn't happy about having an operation so I contacted a naturopath to see if there was an alternative treatment for them.
The naturopath was horrified that the gallstone was going to be removed `in case it caused a problem in the future' (which is what the hospital doctor had said to me).
Anyway, I decided to do what the naturopath told me to do and several years after the diagnosis I've still not had a peep out of my gallstone.
