Crazy that you just mentioned the feet thing I've just been noticing I can feel them again too. I wonder if many of us are suffering from bacterial infection from t. Whipplei or actinobacteria we all have very similar symptoms and issues. I'm glad your getting your life back on track I hope I can do the same. It's a nightmare I spread this infection to my whole family including my two young kids and even pets of ours it's the craziest most messed up thing ever. So you freeze 4 cap fulls of castor oil and take them frozen on an empty stomach that's pretty gnarly man. Does the castor oil help with constipation I have horrendous constipation because of this I mean the worst. Well I hope my pine needle story is as successful as yours 6 months that's fine by me. Where do you purchase yours from? I try to buy the natural clear stuff. I wish I had more I'd do a 1/2 tspn twice daily if I could but I was told to stick with it and be patient and that's my plan. Yeah I had infectious disease doctors refusing to see me or further investigate my case because they didn't believe me or have enough evidence to support it. Screw them they don't know what theyre doing in regards to whipple's disease anyway. I worked in the medical field for 10 yrs as a respiratory therapist and if I never work as one again that's fine by me. Although I do miss helping people especially preterm infants the Nicu was my area that I loved the most. I saw too much death in adult care for my liking. I'll keep you posted as to my progress hopefully we can all help each other to heal since doctors won't help us.
