I have LGS, low magnesium, CFS/ME, is there any chance I will get better?

Posted by mb on December 16, 1998 at 17:30:29:

I am ill/tired/depressed. Is there any chance that I will
one day soon recover? I had autobrewery, but 10 months on
gut fermentation diet has fixed that. I have low magnesium,
and increased gut permeability. I don't know what my chances
are of recovering, is there anyone else like me here, are there any other bulletin boards I should visit? I had magnesium injections which raised levels, but oral supplementation did not keep them up, I suppose this is because of my leaky gut, all I want to know is what are my chances of ever getting better?

You came to the right place, assuming that you really want to get better and you are willing to take some daily steps toward managing your own health over a period of time. Sorry, no quick fixes here.

One of the premises here that I believe is true about chronic illnesses is to the effect that "You won't get better by anything you TAKE, but from what you DO"

The "what to do" part is here, perhaps over and over and over and over and over and over again. What you actually DO with it is up to you. Look around here, make your decisions for action, and get much healthier!

it's been six years since I gave up normal life, I don't remember when I was last well, definitely been wrong since
I was twelve. I can't think properly, I just can't make sense of all this info here. I do so much want to get better
but I don't know if it is really possible, has anyone with the same things as me got better? I don't see how gut permeability can be fixed, I can't absorb magnesium orally yet. I have been on a diet cutting out the following for 10-12 months; yeast, sugar, mushrooms, cheese, vinegar. It stopped the autobrewery, but I have got increased gut permeability, how to fix that? It seems like my body just won't heal.

MB,

Don't lose hope! I've been going through something similar for 2 years, and this board is the best thing that ever happended to me. Everyone on this board is so supportive and helpful - I honestly never thought something like this did or could exist. And Dr. Stoll and Robert McFerran are like angels. I don't know how they do what they do. The amount of time they put into helping people, for no apparent gain of their own, still continues to amaze me.

No question is ever too stupid for them, nor will it go unanswered. Somehow they always find a way to help. Just let them guide you, be patient, and don't lose hope. This board can and will definitely help you to help yourself - and change your life - as long as you give it the chance.

Good Luck, and we're all here to help whenever you need it. I'm sure that will be proven by the amount of concerned responses you'll get here by tomorrow.

Tony

Dear mb,

Listen to Tony.

If you have a copy of my book, you know that the lining of the intestinal tract replaces itself on the average every 14 hours. If you had practiced an effective skilled relaxation technique, as described so many times on this BB, for 6-12 months, the lining would be normal. If we could wave a magic wand, so that the circualtion to the gut wall would be normal right now, your gut wall would be normal in 14 hours.

This is a curable condition but only by things you DO.

Walt

I do not have the book yet, I just found this board a couple days ago. Is it possible that the gut will not heal despite
probiotics/fructo oligo sacchirides/butyric acid etc unless I use biofeedback as well? I have been doing diets and supplements, maybe relaxation is the missing link?

If the gut heals, I think my mg absorbtion would be fixed maybe.

I think too it is also possible I am on the wrong diet generally, been vegetarian about 14 years, and I am of Celtic/Jewish descent mostly, blood type unknown.

I don't really have any authority to be writing you, but since I've been going through something similar, I couldn't resist.

Relaxation is definitely a major missing link. Dr. Stoll is your man!

A 14 year vegetarian of celtic descent with a leaky gut? Robert McFerran is going to have a field day with you!

I know (actually I don't, but I can imagine) it's probably been an incredibly difficult 6 years, but your long journey has taken you to the right place, and I know that if you listen to these two men, you'll get back to a better life than you ever had or thought you could achieve.

Keep fighting! It will all be worth it...

Tony

Dear mb,

The skilled relaxation IS your missing link. I have yet to find the person with LGS in which that was not the most important single thing they had to do to finally get over it.

Theoretically, that person is out there somewhere. However, I have treated hundreds with this condition & they all got rid of the LGS once they were willing to learn the SR and practice it regularly.

Bob is finding people who are healing with just finding the appropriate diet and doing the elimination/provocation diet. I am sure that both are factors. If only one is done, though, eventually the other may come up & bite one on the b--t. It just comes down to the bell curve for that individual and what their bodyminds will let them get away with.

But I was never a strong healthy child even before I became vegetarian? McFerran's Irish dancer.

I really don't know where the problems stem from, my mother
is not strong either. I became veggie aged 9 but before that
I always caught every cold around.
My ancestors; British, I think a fair bit Celtic/Irish/Scottish, family been in East End London a long time, but plenty of Irish and Scottish descent, and a quarter Jewish. The Celtic shows, I am redhaired.
Maybe I should try fish, I am sick of being ill. I read the
post by McFerran about the vegan ballet dancer you see.
