The last 10 days have kicked my ass. I am stressed, run down, have a cold, and am overall, a mess. Last week, I came down with another UTI. The 4th time I take Cipro this year, when you combine the kidney infections.
At the recommendation of a friend, I went to see her Homeopath yesterday. I had been to a naturopath once and I have been to acupuncture several times in my life, but this was my first ever visit with a homeopath. She was very nice and took a very long, very detailed medical history. I wanted to make my kidneys/bladder better. But she was concerned about my B12 levels (I have had to take shots in the past), my iron levels, my hormones (hello! can't get pregnant!). In the end, I came away with a BOX FULL of granules and drops. It's so freaking complicated. A bunch are 3 times per day, some are morning and night, 2 are once a day, and the hormone-related ones are once a week... you shoudl see the freaking chart she made for me. Actually, what you should really see is the bill!
I am giving it 3 months. I think that is a decent amount of time to see if it will make me feel any better. Some of these things are not meant to be taken for a long time, just to sort of fix me up for now. Some like the hormone-related ones would be a weekly thing for as long as needed. We'll see. I'm keeping an open mind. And an open wallet.
