10 Things Guaranteed to Cure Whatever Ails You

As someone with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, asthma, acid reflux disease, eczema, etc, I've heard it all.  On top of that, all four of my kids have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome as well, and three of them also have asthma and eczema.  My youngest son, Davy, had to have a feeding tube until he was 18 months old due to the severity of his issues.

10 Things Guaranteed to Cure Whatever Ails You

With all that, there's no shortage of unsolicited advice and cures.

"You only have your disease because you've 'claimed' it."

"You'd feel better if you would exercise more and eat better."

"Your *insert condition here* could be cured if you tried this supplement."

"Your EDS was caused by vaccinations."

Thanks to all the helpful advice I've received, I was able to put together a list of things that will cure any problem you have.  You're welcome.

1. Essential Oils
No matter what you have, there's an oil for that!  Don't get me wrong, I love essential oils and use them all the time, but please stop trying to tell me that they can cure everything.

2. Plexus
I don't know much about Plexus, but I've been told that it will change your life.  I mean, the brother's friend's mother-in-law's niece of the person trying to sell it to me was totally cured of everything they ever had.

3. Prayer
Obviously, the reason why my kids and I have so many health issues is because I haven't prayed hard enough for healing.  Except that God isn't a vending machine and sometimes He says no to prayers like that because He knows that there's a deeper purpose behind your struggles.

4. Positive Thinking
It turns out that I only have health problems because I think I do.  If I were to just get myself into a positive state of mind and think about how healthy and pain-free I am, it would happen!  The same went for Davy's feeding issues that required a g tube...he only needed it because I believed he did.

5. Not vaccinating
So apparently, the genetic condition that was written into mine and my kids' genes from conception was actually caused by our vaccinations.  Because obviously, that's how genetics work.

6. Exercise
Did you know that getting more exercise can help you feel better no matter what your problem is?  Muscle pain?  Exercise!  Brain fog?  Exercise!  Broken leg?  Exercise!  And yeah, exercise can definitely make you feel better, but only if it's done properly and in the right amounts.  That's especially important with EDS.

Gluten free, vegan, sugar free, raw foods, organic, etc.  You name it, I've been told to try it.  While eating healthy can definitely be helpful, going on a gluten-sugar-dairy free, all organic, vegan, grown-by-monks-in-the-mountains diet isn't going to cure my issues.  Sorry.   

8. Probiotics
I love probiotics!  Davy had constant yeast infections on his g tube site thanks to frequent antibiotics when he was younger so we started probiotics, and they made a huge difference.  You know what though?  They didn't cure him like I was told they would! 

9. Ice cream
I can't tell you how many people told me that Davy wouldn't need his feeding tube if I just fed him ice cream.  Okay, first of all...I did feed him ice cream.  Second of all, no.  Just no.

10. Lularoe
Okay, I admit that this one is bit of a stretch.  As buttery soft as the leggings are, they can't cure anything.  But believe it or not, some of the "cures" I've been told to try for me and my kids are as ridiculous as this suggestion is.
