All my stress goes to my digestive system which, along with years of poor eating habbits, have caused my digestive system to be in such bad shape that I am almost always in pain. And I can eat practically no foods. The naturopath just muscle tested .... yet again.... for 50.00. She came up with that my probiotic ( which is a professional and very respected grade) is not working. The one that she tested I need costs a fortune. The double strength product can be gotten only by prescription. The naturopath said she would contact my MD to see if she can write a prescription for it. Although she said she would have to research it and then find the time to call my doctor. I know she moves very slowly and often forgets to do things. She got a bit miffed when I asked her when she could to it. I understand she is busy. But I also understand she forgets. So I did some research and found out that my insurance ( medicare part D) doesnt cover this medication. I called the part D company and they are faxing my MD who will charge me 20.00 to fill out a form to see if they will make an exception and grant me the coverage. the problem there is that I did this before the naturopath talked to the MD who will be sort of blindsided by the forms the part D company is sending her. I did call and left a message for the MD. I know that with GI problems sometimes the correct probiotic, taken in large amounts can actually resolve things. So I am willing to try anything to be out of pain and... well relieve the other symptoms. But I do not have between 180 and 360 dollars per month that it will take to treat with this particular strain of probiotic. Even though I have tried everything else. I have asked spirit to arrange that the part D insurance company cover this medication. I just hope for a miracle that this will happen. Because otherwise it will be sad to know that there is a likely treatment and relief out there. But I cannot afford it. The naturopath has been getting very short and not so nice to me. I think shes frustrated with me and my complex issues. She was very nice in the beginning. Its all a mess. Anyway, if you actually could follow all of what I said, you are a genius. So congratulations . And if not, please know you are smart. Its just that my mind races when I get scared. Thanks !! ps: the product can be bought in lower dose at some pharmacies. But not through the naturopath. So she has nothing to gain from this.
