    Microcurrent Stimulator
    Bakabodine posted:
    Find a fibro-friendly doctor, especially a Rheumatologist. I've been using a Microcurrent Stimulator to help my adrenal glands, which often have trouble functioning well in people like us. It's been giving me more energy. I also just starting taking an Ionic Mineral liquid from my doctor. It's supposed to help the stimulation come through better.

    Do you have your own machine or do you see someone who administers the treatment? I have been wanting my own machine after seeing a massage therapy who administers treatments, but I am not sure what type of machine to buy. Any advice? Thanks!
