Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Just wanted to be sure we were on the same page.

Great suggestion--relaxation exercises, yoga, and relaxation techniques are very good for anxiety, as are hypnotherapy and acupuncture

My ibs has gone.
As you said. Fickle. Do you think these yoga things ie breathing etc can help health ? And anxiety. ??
I've always took the science route. Bloods scans etc ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
They definitely help with anxiety and since anxiety can aggravate IBS they help with IBS too. The tests help your anxiety when they are fine but there's a lot to be said for meditation to keep us healthy
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That's good enough for me. So you believe the mind body connection. ?
Before I go. Specialist said next blood work dec. doc says 1 year you seen em what do you think ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Absolutely I do.

If I were your PCP, I'd say yearly and no more frequently than that.

The specialist has to justify his job

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Excellent rating on way bloods are damn good says my doc for my age ! You agree ?
Ok il go to a class on Saturday for breathing meditation worth a go.
My doc says have a glass of wine each night to relax before bed one won't hurt with a ggt of 9. And alt of 27. Not sure if he's right or not lol
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Fully agree mate.

No problem at all with the one glass of wine per night.

Now please excuse me while I repeat "OOOMMM" over and over while closing my eyes and focus my breathing
