The HGH has been the lynchpin in the whole kielbasa. When HGH isn't adequate the pituitary doesn't function very well and all the hormones go to kerfluey and can't hold any correction from outside sources for long. I've been applying hormone creams, taking HGH shots and voila, about 80% better. My naturopath feels as I do that balancing hormone levels is absolutely critical in just about any chronic condition. None of our docs or pdocs seem to get this.

ahh... so you changed too many hormones at once to be sure which had which effect? ok fair enough

i know low thyroid and testosterone alone are certainly sufficient enough on their own to make you feel bad...

ah... was my number 1 criteria for diagnosing ADD (driving like a maniac)

> **Lamictal and lithium go together like a horse and carriage. I can't do one without the otthhhherrr.

cool... cool... i wonder if this will become mainstream sometime soon
