Well I guess I’ll sum up a long story the best that I can. About 7 years ago I developed chronic gastritis after a very stressful situation with my girlfriend at the time. I had also been heavily smoking marijuana for 2 years and lost lot of weight. Quit when gastritis started.
I got some testing done and the doctor thought that h-pylori was the problem from my endoscopy. I was already holisticly minded at the time and I did not want to take a antibiotics so I managed it with herbal antimicrobial and demulcent herbs for the next few years. I was able to manage the pain and keep it at a minimum but I was never able to make it completely go away so about 2 years ago I decided that I would go ahead and try the antibiotic protocol for h pylori.
So I did the protocol and I actually caught the flu during the protocol and I got better from it after a week but then I caught it again I got better and then I caught it for a third time so I was sick for an entire month.
I had another endoscopy and stool testing after this that confirm that the H pylori was gone but my stomach felt worse. I also notice notice slowly month after month that my energy was getting lower. I wasn’t sure whether it was the antibiotics or the series of flu-like illness that triggered this but it got to the point where I could hardly do anything other than cook my meals and shower.
I also started with pain in my calves that slowly spread all around my body in a fibromyalgia kind of pain. It got to the point to where I can hardly sleep and do much of anything without a lot of pain and tiredness. and I ended up getting on an herbal protocol from an acupuncturist that got me back to the point to where I can cook my meals and go to the grocery store 1 time a week if someone drives me but I haven’t been able to get past this point.
I uploaded the two formulas that she had me on and I’ve been on the bottom modification for about 2 or 3 months. It dramatically helped the the Mind problems but didn’t help the stomach or fatigue or pain was moderately helped by the Yan hu suo .
Can’t tolerate bitter or hot herbs at all. Get too nervous and stimulated. I’ve seen in trials that Ren Shen Yang Rong Tang seems to have helped a lot of people I would appreciate any advice here as there is a language barrier with my current acupuncturist and I don’t think she wants to change everything
