I’m in the pattern of 50 mcg T3 in am and 25 mcg T4 pm; had second lllt treatment yesterday. Today has been a full deep breath of fresh air. Cleaning house for first time in forever. Went grocery shopping and prepping to make dinner. There’s a lot of ‘life backlog’ be prioritized but with brain online it seems no big deal.
Just scheduled third lllt treatment for right before the weekend to make sure my family gets some of this ‘on time’.
I’ve seen various studies online regarding lllt and what piqued my interest were studies mentioned in Dr. Norman Doidge’s book ‘The Brain’s way of Healing’. I’ll be taking notes at upcoming treatments regarding laser type & settings used. This site URL has good recap detail on a clinic’s patients that were helped by low level laser: http://sydneylaserhealthsolutions.com.au/conditions/65-fibromyalgia-cfs
Yesterday came across Steven Fowkes article recommending continued increase of thyroid meds til fatigue lifts, along with patient recommendations to take thyroid at bedtime for improved recovery. I’d already taken T3 meds in the morning, so took an old T4 levothyroxine at bedtime. I was feeling noticeably good within 20 minutes; could read before bed for the first time in AGES. I had energy to pop out of bed this morning for the first time in YEARS. I’m hopeful.
I’ve come full circle. End of last year tried low level laser treatment for Fibro muscle spasms and was delighted to find the days after treatment I had MUCH increased energy. I went from a 1-2 on the Cfs activity scale to being so active I thought I could return to work. I organized the kitchen! I made a full bed-sized blanket and started the next! I was also trying several other treatments and lllt was most expensive so have been relying on less expensive options for past months. I have returned to 1-2 on Cfs activity scale so restarted lllt this week at a new location.
This Dr knew exactly what I was talking about concerning the energy boost and said he has another patient with Ehlers and CFS- they started laser treatments on spinal column: first 3x weekly for couple weeks, then twice weekly, weekly, monthly. Patient went traveling for months & months and eventually relapsed, came back for lllt and is now on a monthly maintenance schedule.
So excited I can possibly get my life back and may just need one lllt maintenance appointment monthly. Will post updates.
— update: this didn’t work for me. If you’re going to try juicing please check your urine Ph first- mine’s often more alkaline than the norm and juicing tips me to further alkaline & feeling much worse —
On second day juicing celery, had a 16oz in the morning and bit more in the evening. Added parsley (supposed to add cilantro but didn’t have handy): bit easier to drink than straight celery. Also read online it’s ok to store fresh veg juice in fridge for up to 3 days if using a canning jar: fill up with liquid til there’s convex bubble of it about to run over, then slap the lid on which should keep out most O2. Messy but trying it incase I’m ever too tired to juice. Which normally would be Every Day but still feeling good. Went out with my family which is a huge deal. Just a movie and wandering through mall to half price book store: big news in my world! Also no snoozing when trying to listen to Medical Medium audiobook. Progress for sure.
