Top 100+ Misdiagnosed Diseases

MISDIAGNOSED
~
PCOS Lady:
~
I have a real issue with doctors and medical personnel today…
Most lack common sense, the right training, the dedication for caring, the thirst to know, the desire in caring people get well!
~
Doctors take an oath to 1st do no harm then to prevent disease where they can… The oath has been changed three times over the years, seems to their benefit… But 1st do no harm is still listed!
~
Doctors: (most doctors)
~ not being properly tested on the human body functioning as a whole…
~ not completing their internships…
~ not treating the cause just caring to treat symptoms… (new symptom = another drug, etc…)
~ not looking outside the listed treatments for new and alternative ways…
~
Drug companies know there will be more over medication, misdiagnosed, not diagnosed and malpractice going on due to doctors not completing their internships cause of demand today!
~ Malpractice attorneys are real busy and winning today!
~ Those firms are seeking physicians and physician assistants to be expert witnesses, etc… (Current and retired)
~
SYMPTOMS COUNT!
~
All your symptoms count… your medical history counts! Having a doctor that knows and actually cares are crucial in getting a proper diagnosis… “YOU” have the right to a second opinion! Your insurance should cover this for you…
~
Many doctors today are not considering all your symptoms!
~ Write your symptoms down…
~ Keep track of when they start, how long, what happens, what triggered them, etc…
~ RESEARCH your symptoms online… Sites, blogs, forums, research documents, etc…
~ Educate yourself on your medical issue(s) and condition(s)…

Fibromyalgia and or Parasites

FIBROMYALGIA COMMUNITY
How many of you have been tested for parasites???

Poster: By Ree… | Oct 16, 2008

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia over a year ago, but I just found out I have a rare parasite infection. I had a special comprehensive stool test ordered by my naturopathic practitioner. This was NOT a routine stool test ordered by a doctor which often misses many kinds of parasite infections. Parasite infections can mimic fibro and cause chronic fatigue, anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, irritable bowel, skin rashes and itching, joint aches, muscle aches, food sensitives, etc.
~
If you are diagosed with Fibromyalgia and find yourself getting sicker and sicker like I was, you absolutely need to have a comprehensive test for parasite infections. Parasites are much more common than people realize and many doctors don’t routinely test for them. Individuals with Fibromyalgia are even more susceptible to parasite infections than the normal, healthy person. My doctors, including my rheumatologist, didn’t think to test me for parasites even though I had EVERY symptom of a parasite infection and I am wasting away and one step away from the hospital. If you want more information on the test I had done, send me a private message.

Thank you for posting this. I remember when Dr. OZ was on the Oprah Winfrey show talking about parasites and how the majority of Americans have had them at one time or another. For those of us who are chronically ill… we are more susceptible to parasite infections. I don’t know why western medicine practitioners don’t talk about parasite infections and why you have to go to a Naturopathic physician to address these problems. (or so it seems).

To: ALL
I suffer from multiple problems that I recently concluded were related to parasite(s), either singular or plural. IF you google on parasites and parasite cleanse you may be shocked to find out that when you had worms as a kid and drank some orange liquid or whatever, it wasn’t the only time you had parasites, or maybe ever will come in contact with them. Anti-biotics are often given to people rid the body of all bacteria, but funny thing is people still get sick sometimes more sick, some people have even died from anti-biotics, simply because getting rid of all bacteria is a bad idea. Pro-biotics replenish good bacteria which becomes depleted from overgrowth of candida (yeast) or other parasites that leech into your stomach from city water, meat not well cooked, even from having animals around, and hospitals etc. But sometimes even probiotics are not good enough, and the body starts to need some hardcore anti-bacterial action that wont destroy the good bacteria thats stil fighting to stay alive and keep your immunity up. For some time i’ve had serious stomach indigestion coupled with esophagul spasms, heart palpitations from constant acid reflux, muscle twitching on my left side related to this stomach problem, brain fog, mood swings, even paranoia which at one point i thought i was hearing voices. This may seem funny and even strange but if you do some research you’ll find there are various parasites that can cause all these problems and more including may neuroligical disorders that can end up affecting the whole body. Though the evidence is inconclusive there are some people now claiming that ALL disorders can be related to bad bacterial (parasitic) overgrowth of some kind or another. Just for one example check out http://www.livescience.com/strangenews/060803_tgondii_culture.html that talks about a finding of a parasite carried by cats that can lead to anxiety, depression, and even schizophrenia. But there are many more examples. Anyway, I didn’t know what to believe then I decided to start taking a parasite cleanse (you can usually by a kit at health food stores or health food sections of grocery stores) and even though the first little while was intense as my body was healing, i soon found that most of my problems were diminishing and i was feeling better than ever. Unfortunately, I didn’t do the cleanse the direct way (To avoid all yeast, and sugars) and when I had stopped taking this cleanse ALL my problems returned. So I discovered first hand that all my health problems which came upon me quite suddenly were indeed related to some sort of parasitic attack. And for those people who don’t think that they will get parasites cause they’re really healthy, you should know that even before I somehow became infected I was eating very healthfully, avoiding all refined foods and junk foods, and eating tons of vegetables and what not. But at some time of weakness and not to mention at one point living with about 5 cats in the city, my immune system became weak and BAM i got hit with all these health problems. What I regret now is that even though I was eating healthy I really wasn’t getting enough probiotics in my diet to keep my good bacteria levels up. Fermented foods, though common in some parts of the world where certain disorders seem quite rare, are very much important for one to be able to withstand parasitic infections. Anyways, its something to look into for someone suffering with a disorder or disease or whatever and feeling like the pills or whatever they’re prescribed, though it may be masking the problems, are really not solving them and the real root of the problem is most likely bacterial infection! Good luck to anyone trying to bring their health back… I know i’m still workin on gettin mine back to what it used to be, and i’m still learning. Rome wasn’t built in a day. =)

Low LDL Linked to Cancer?

Low ‘Bad’ Cholesterol Levels May Be Linked to Cancer Risk

Preliminary study found patients had low LDL cholesterol years before cancer diagnosis

~
SUNDAY, March 25 (HealthDay News) — There may be a link between low levels of “bad” low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and increased cancer risk, according to new research.
~
In the study, researchers looked at 201 cancer patients and 402 cancer-free patients. They found that cancer patients who never took cholesterol-lowering drugs had low LDL cholesterol levels for an average of about 19 years prior to their cancer diagnosis.
The finding suggests there may be some underlying mechanism that affects both LDL cholesterol levels and cancer risk, the study authors said.
~
Still, other experts cautioned that the finding is preliminary, and lowering your LDL levels is well known to cut the odds for the number one killer, heart disease.

Heart Disease in Women with Statistics

Posted in HEART DISEASE tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:43 pm by PCOSLady

http://www.youbeauty.com/health/heart-disease-women
~
PCOS Lady:
Posted this for the statistics listed for you…
~
Heart Disease in Women: A Red-Hot, Overlooked Medical Issue
~
Compared to men, women are less likely to receive heart disease treatment, and more likely to experience severe problems during and after a heart attack.
~
Vascular disease leading to heart attacks and strokes is the number one killer of women in the U.S. and Canada—one in two women will die of heart disease or stroke, compared with one in 25 women who will die of breast cancer.
~
Yet heart problems are still widely regarded as a male problem, but we differ—for example, 42 percent of women who have heart attacks die within one year, compared to 24 percent of men. By the way, you may think osteoporosis is a female disease but that’s the same problem as thinking heart disease is a male disease. Osteoporosis is also a disease of both men and women and more men than women die after a hip fracture.
~
This stereotype is most worrisome when it counts most: before a heart attack. Women are largely under-treated when it comes to preventive heart and vascular care. In a recent study, a full 70 percent of people who experienced a heart attack did not receive prior treatment for heart disease. A majority of those overlooked? Women younger than 66 years.
~
Other research reveals: Women under 55 also have it worse than men during and following a heart attack. A study out of British Columbia showed that when a heart attack struck, women experienced more severe chest pains and more pain in spots like the shoulder, left arm, throat and neck.
~
Women have a keen ability to spot discomfort that their loved ones experience, but it’s important to recognize warning signs for yourself.
~
The following symptoms may not be alarming in your day-to-day, but in some cases could signal an aortic valve problem, which may lead to heart disease or heart attack:
~
1) Feeling tired or weak. If you work yourself into the ground during the week, feeling exhausted may not come as a surprise. Take note when you’re still feeling this way on a rested day.
2) Being short of breath. Making a big speech or seeing your child climbing on top of a cupboard can make you gasp for a full breath. But if you don’t have asthma or anxiety, and your chest is tight, make a trip to the doctor.
3) Getting light-headed. Feeling faint after a light lunch? Keep healthy snacks on hand and see if you’re still having dizzy spells. And if they’re reoccurring, see your doc.
4) Having palpitations. When your heart’s racing at night do you blame all that (good-for-you) coffee you downed during the day? If you aren’t big on caffeine and your heart’s beating hard while you’re lying down, take it up with your doc.
~
VIDEO: 4 Must-Know Heart Attack Warning Signs
http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/4-must-know-warning-signs-pt-1
~
Stop procrastinating. Too many women put off checking these symptoms because they simply “don’t have the time.” Just think of all the appointments you’d have down the line if you don’t figure out the source of these symptoms. Putting yourself first will help you get the care you need sooner, and turn the problem around if there is one.
~
If you have experienced a heart attack, you must (we repeat, must) put yourself first. Women in the Canadian study experienced poorer quality of life, recurring chest pain and more physical limitations during their recovery, than men.
~
Why? Since women often play caretaker to their family, they may not be as good at taking care of themselves when they need it most; the researchers found that women were less likely to do cardiac rehab than men!
~
For your family, lead by example in taking care of yourself, with a healthy diet and exercise plan, along with regular checkups. You’ll be quicker on your feet, and can prevent scary heart problems from arising in the first place.
~
Read on for your complete guide to how heart disease can be turned right around with lifestyle changes from diet to exercise and stress management.
~ Google: womens heart attack symptoms … Read and keep reading…
~ Look at your self and change the triggers and what bothers you… Change your eating ways, exercise, etc…
~ Rid your life of the negativity and relax to enjoy your life!
~
Take care of “YOU” and live a happy life!

Naturopathic Practice Information and Philosophy
~
According to the World Health Organization, “health is more than the absence of disease. Health is a state of optimal well-being.” Dr. Glenn Gero, a NJ naturopath, believes that optimal well-being is a concept of health that goes beyond the curing of illness to one of achieving wellness. Achieving wellness requires balancing of the various controllable aspects of the whole person. These aspects are physical, emotional and mental. The broader holistic approach to health involves the integration of all of these aspects and is an ongoing process.

Dr. Glenn Gero analyzes each individual’s health, behavioral and attitudinal profile to help achieve optimal wellness by referring each client to scientific, historical and anecdotal healing principles.
Dr. Glenn Gero is not a medical doctor. He will not prescribe drugs or diagnose illness. He is a trained natural health specialist and educator. He performs wellness consultations regarding diet, nutritional supplementation, botanical medicine, exercise, mind/body imbalances, alternative healing and can refer to other healthcare professionals when appropriate. His services are not insurance reimbursable.

Parasite Protocol

Posted in PARASITES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 10:01 pm by PCOSLady

PARASITE PROTOCOL
~ ~ ~
PCOS LADY: REALITY IS –
The hard fact is there is an increasing amount of infections popping up in the US… Most doctors are not keeping up with all the new research and medical things today! You have to do your own research and direct your doctor on what you need, etc… Realize you control the treatment and all that is done on you by law…
~ So many people are moving in to and visiting the US… We are traveling abroad as well… Foods carry many things we can not see with the naked eye! Bugs, etc… hitch rides on planes, boats, trucks, etc… Your water supply may have bacteria, fungus and parasites in it…
~
I would be sure your doctor checks all your nutrient levels since parasites steal your good nutrients leaving bacteria and waste behind in you…
~
http://drlwilson.com/do%20hair%20analysis.htm
~ Dr L Wilson … Has a list by state of those experienced in hair analysis…
~
SYMPTOMS:
1st thing is to keep a journal of your symptoms… This can be comprised of the times, dates, what you were doing and the symptoms, the length the symptoms stayed and the characteristics of your symptoms… It all means something about the cause, path and how to treat it…
~
https://humaworm.com/symptoms.html
~ Huma Worm site… Extensive parasite symptoms list… Check off and add your symptoms to show your doctor… Keep a copy for yourself!
~

BAD PARASITES:

When (bad) parasites are suspected the patient must realize Quest Diagnostics lab and Lab Corp lab only test for a few types of parasites…
~ Quest Diagnostics only tests for what is normally abnormal in that body area… Per the 800# lab manager…
www.ParasiteTesting.com lab in Arizona tests for every type parasite known to man in the world!
~
INSURANCE:
Call your insurance provider to verify your type of coverage and coverage of teaching hospitals and doctors who specialize in parasite infections are in your network…
~
YOUR STRUGGLE / FIGHT:
You may have to see an Infectious Disease doctor to 1) prove you need the AZ lab to your doctor…2) prove the Infectious Disease doc can’t help you either to your doctor(s)… 3) Stress you need the tests ordered from the Parasite Testing lab in AZ…
~ Call to verify your insurance will cover the AZ tests when ordered by your referring doctor…
~
OUT OF NETWORK:
~ Out of Network lab: (United Health care does) Your insurance may require a Predetermination Letter that includes your diagnosis code, procedure code and a copy of your records to get approval for “in network” or it will be out of network or totally out of pocket expenses for tests…
~ The script from your doctor for the lab will have the their name and info on it… Your test results will reflect your doctor as your referring doctor… All needed for IN NETWORK coverage…
~
HOSPITALS: Teaching
Ask for the Division of Infectious Diseases then ask for the Parasitologist Department then for a doctor specializing in parasite infections…
~
HOSPITAL LIST:
~ University of Pennsylvania … 215.829.3000
~ Thomas Jefferson University Hospital … 215.955.6000
~ Drexel University Hospital … 215.246.5437 Find a Doctor
~ Temple University Hospital … 215.885.1046
~ Hahnemann University Hospital … 215.762.7000
~
DOCTORS:
Director Dr Steven Gluckman … 215.662.4000 … University of Pennsylvania
Dr Jeff Jacobson … 215.762.6500 … Hahnemann University Hospital
or
Dr Warren Werbitt … 856.429.4433 … Gastroenterology (I’m waiting to hear if he can help me… 8/12/12)
~
LABS:
~:
Quest Diagnostics – Appease your doctor and insurance by trying this method first…
~
Lab Corp – Appease your doctor and insurance by trying this method first…
~
* My strong recommendation is you ask then demand to use this lab!
~
www.ParasiteTesting.com … Parasitology Center in Arizona… They test for every living parasite known to man in the world! The owner
Dr Omar Amin is world renowned for his research work…
~ He was traveling to Africa a few years ago to study the deadly brain parasite that attacks the victim’s brain and kills them…
~
FACTS:
US doctors feel the US is to clean to have (bad) parasites…
~ Dr Amin’s research tested 100 US people = 32% had parasites… 100 European people = 20% had parasites …
~
http://www.epu-eg.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=152&Itemid=57
~ Dr Omar Amin … His credentials and 156 publications listing…
~
US doctors do not know much about parasites, bacterial, fungal or yeast infections to name a few…
~ See a tropical doctor for bacterial and fungal infections…
~
Only a select few doctors are trained on parasites and the infections from them…
~
SITES:
~ www.ParasiteTesting.com … Parasitology Center in AZ… Dr Omar Amin’s lab… Not listed with any insurance company, per him a few years ago he mentioned to me…
~ https://humaworm.com/symptoms.html … Huma Worm site for a long list of symptoms…
~ http://curezone.com/diseases/parasites/ … The Cure Zone site is a forum for parasites and much more…

Stroke: S.T.R. (Save a life!)

Posted in HEART DISEASE tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 5:13 pm by PCOSLady

SAVE A LIFE. FORWARD AND REMEMBER
~
Stroke Has a New Indicator
They say if you email this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life.
Pass this on to everyone you know…
~
Blood Clots/Stroke – They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue
~
Had a picture of head and clot here in email…
~
I will continue to forward this every time it comes around!
~
STROKE: Remember the 1st Three Letters….. S. T. R..
~
STROKE IDENTIFICATION:
~
During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ……she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.
~
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.
~
Jane’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 pm Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.
~
It only takes a minute to read this.
~
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.
~
RECOGNIZING A STROKE
~
Thank God for the sense to remember the ‘3’ steps, STR. Read and Learn!
~
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify.. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
~
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
~
S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
~
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
~
(i..e. It is sunny out today.)
~
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
~
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
~
New Sign of a Stroke ——– Stick out Your Tongue
~
NOTE: Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is this: Ask the person to ‘stick’ out his tongue. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.
~
I have done my part. Will you?
