Gastro-intestinal Problem

My doctors are at a loss as to a diagnosis and treatment of my digestive problems. I have IDDM (insulin dependent diabetes mellitus) and Celiac Sprue. My gall bladder was removed 18 months ago. For about 6 years I have been presenting systems that stump my internists (3 to date) and which are getting worse. Systems are: burning stomach pain, cramps and spasms; severe abdominal cramps much like giving birth; diarrhea which has now become yellow water; loss of appetite; nausea before meals and with the sight or smell of food; GERD; headaches; dry skin; fatigue; and muscle weakness. I have 18 prescription medications and each time I see my doctor I get another pill. Upper and Lower GI were normal 18 months ago. Stool test and Sigmoidoscopy normal now and 5 years ago. I am 49 years old. Have you had any experience with such symptoms? If you can point me in the right direction I will do the research.

For medical-legal reasons I cannot offer a diagnosis without seeing you, however I can tell you that such symptoms are classic in cases of the complex of disorders which go by the names: dysbiosis / leaky gut syndrome. If you take your temperature (under the tongue with a mercury thermometer five minutes) six times over the day and take an average, it will probably be UNDER 98.0 which indicates a chronic infection. The chronic infection in such cases resides in the gut associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) which is the part of the immune system around the lining of the gut. If this is the case, your condition will not improve until this infection is rooted out and this type of infection does not disappear on its own. The only system which can achieve this are the SanPharma Remedies supported by the Pekana Homeopathics. These are German remedies, new in this country and recently approved by the FDA. Finding a doctor who understands all this and is skilled with these remedies may be a real challenge. Lesser degress of the syndrome you describe are rampant in America and American medicine has not much more to offer than allopathic pharmaceuticals which suppress symptoms by have nothing to do with getting at the real cause.
