    I am new to all of this but I have started taking Macca cranberry tabs Vit C, Vit B multi Vit, D-Mannose and primerose oil.  I have the lady magnets too.  It has not got rid of symptoms but has eased things I think.  One of my main probs is the bladder so my remedies are aimed in that direction. hope that helps a little.

      Brief Kelp info to share 

      But Why Kelp? Have Particular Benefits Been Recorded from Taking Seaweed or Kelp Supplements?

      The super-nutritional composition of kelp assists the body in its own healing process, working holistically. Kelp and seaweed supplements are found to create a number of positive benefits in the human body, including a curative influence on diseases. These include tuberculosis, colds, influenza, arthritis, heart disease, cancer, thyroid problems, and high cholesterol. Kelp is said to aid weight loss by reducing food cravings, and kelp can help women battling the menopause. It can relieve digestive disorders, trapped wind, and chronic constipation. Kelp is also active in improving the scalp and hair growth. Homeopaths have known about kelp and seaweed for over a century for their detoxifying weight-loss benefits.
