Scot's Testimonial

Dr suggests you alkalinize the Urine
I was diagnosed with this problem about 10 years ago. I went through hell for the a lot of years. Not being able to sleep at night was the absolute killer. I had to get up three or four times a night to go to the bathroom. I would be so tired during the day with no energy at all.
After going to the urologist many times he gave me some ideas to look for. I wrote a food diary. I did my best to isolate what foods bothered me. To make a long story short, I found that eating mostly carbohydrates (alkaline foods) did the trick. But I was missing something that I couldn't pinpoint the problem. I was getting weaker by eating mostly carbohydrates and not enough protein. I went to go see a nutrionist and she told me to eat more of a balanced diet and including more protein. I didn't like her suggestions because she didn't understand my condition.
So I went along with it. After a while, I started feeling bad again. I told her about it and she didn't really listen to me. After a couple of months she suggested that I take a special test called Elisa. This test is a major blood test that tests for over 340 different foods and chemicals that people may react to. Actually, what your IMMUNE SYSTEM reacts to. You have to get your doctor's approval of this test or the test will not be conducted. Also the company faxs you some information that you must fill out so they can call your insurance company to see if they will cover the test. I got very lucky because my insurance company said that they will cover the entire cost of the test, which is a little over a thousand dollars. You must be saying, that is a lot of money and it is. But you have to llok at what these people do. They have to put your blood through over 340 tests of different foods and chemicals. I went to the hospital to have them draw the blood. There is a specail way they draw the blood. If this procedure is not done correctly, it will have to be redone. Obviously, the night before the test, you have to follow a procedure that they give you. After the blood is drawn, the hospital sends it to the testing lab and you doctor gets the results within a week. I will tell you right now, I have never ever felt as I do now. I can not believe it.
My nutrionist said I knew my body well we I was on the carbohydrate diet because of the akaline way meaning that most carbohydartes are alkaline based not acidic which can disrupt your IMMUNE SYSTEM. What essentially happens is you eat too much the same thing and your immune system attacks a certain part of your body. It could be a kidney for some who drinks a lot or a goldbladder or anything else for that matter. It just happens that mine was my prostate. I am sorry but I got off the beaten path.
When you find out about the things you react to, you have to stay away from them for a least 6 months. Also the key to living very healthy is to drink plenty of water. I just realized how important water is. I have so much more energy now, it is even funny. Also when you take this the full test, you get two free consultations to a well known nutrionist. I recommend that if you can teake this test, take it. The price of this is nothing compared to your well being in life. You can end the misery by really finding out what is really bothering you by doing this.
If any of you wants information regarding this procedure, I will be glad to send it to you. Many people aren't even aware of this procedure at all. Many doctors don't even know about it. I am very glad I did this. You don't know what it is like to get sleep everynight without getting up. Remember everyone is different. What worked for me, may not work for you. If you have'nt taken a diary, do so. Know your body.
Believe me, I felt like a human guinea pig doing this. Testing this food or that food. With this procedure called Elisa, you can illiminate this procedure entirely and find out what is really bothering you and take care of it once and for all without the guessing. I hope this will help a lot of you so you don't have to go through what I went through. It is well worth it.
