GOUT!
« on: October 24, 2016, 09:49:41 am »
My right foot is swollen so that I can't get a shoe on and it is aching and burning.  I couldn't sleep much last night for the pain.

sorry to hear this
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

My father has this. He swore off sugers and red meat. He says that reduces the occurrences. Hope the flare subsides quickly.

I wonder if a Deryni Healer could do anything for gout?

I would think so. My understanding is that they couldn't do much for infections,  other than by a skilled use of heras etc but they could reduce  swelling and increase blood flow and therefore could do much to reduce the swelling that makes gout so painful if not resolve themail underlying cause.

As Deryni healing seems to rely a great deal on visualisation I wonder if as the understanding of what caused disease grew and a Deryni healer could visualise what was happening in the body at the microscopic level then thenter ability to cure infectiongrew too.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.

Like being able to sense & kill the bacteria?

Back to the OP, after a week of misery, I finally gave in and called the doctor.  He had me come in and had his nurse give me a cortisone shot, and he gave me prescriptions for two medicines---a steroid and an anti-inflammatory.  One pill of each, twice a day, with meals.

Apologies for the typos in my previous post. Comes of using my phone without my glasses.

Yes to being able to sense the presence of bacteria once it was understood what was being looked for.  Also as Deryni healing (in Dhugal'so healing of Kelson in QfSC for example) seems to be to a large extent the speeding up of natural processes then maybe modern Deryni healing would include a visualisation and strengthening/multiplying of the white blood cells which fight infection.

Finally got to the doctor who gave me a shot and some pills.  The pain pretty much gone, as s the swelling.
