Different Treatment Options

I mention on my “about me and this blog” page that I have tried numerous types of treatment in the effort to get better.  Every treatment option has pros and cons and I usually decide whether to pursue it or not, based on weighing the two; and of course sometimes necessity. So here is a list of some of the treatments I have tried or currently use and my opinion on the pros and cons and the outcome these treatment has for me.  There will also be a short description of what the treatment consists of or how I experienced the treatment.  All these statements reflect my personal opinion and experiences.  I am not a professional and different things work for different people.

This will be a series of posts, as I realized that it would be entirely too long if I included each treatment in one post
