Things Patients Tell Us That Are Almost Never True, Part 2

“It tasted funny….”

Everyone with an upset stomach blames their last meal, and some are right. But the toxins that make you sick quickly (mostly staphylococcal) and the bacteria that made you sick after a few days (salmonella, shigella, campylobacter) have no taste.

“My pressure is up.”

Calls from guests to “check my pressure” arrive regularly. I can’t remember a visit in which high blood pressure was the problem because high blood pressure doesn’t cause symptoms. I won’t mention the symptoms it doesn’t cause because no one believes me.

  1. I have had bouts of bronchitis for about 10 months out of the year for the last 2 years. I've been given z pack antibiotics, steroids which are ineffective and occasionally the prescription cough syrup which works for a 2-3 hours at a time. I am desperate for relief. I am on my third doctor in 6 months and he is treating me with the same drugs. So far no improvement. So far the bronchitis has caused scarring in my lungs, laryngitis, pulled muscles, and a fractured rib.I was desperate for help to help me feel better. i was introduced to Health herbal clinic in Johannesburg who have successful herbal treatment to bronchitis . I spoke to few people who used the treatment here in USA and they all gave a positive response, so i immediately purchased the bronchitis herbal formula and commenced usage, i used the herbal supplement for only 7 weeks, all symptoms gradually faded away, herbs are truly gift from God. contact this herbal clinic via their email healthherbalclinic @ gmail. com or visit www. healthherbalclinic. weebly. com
