30 Day Chronic Illness Challenge: Day 9

Have you ever tried any alternative therapies?  If so, what?  Did they work?

I have tried a lot of different teas and melatonin to get to sleep.  They help in the falling to sleep department most of the time but they do nothing for the quality or quantity of sleep I end up getting.

I have tried changes in my diet.  The only one that has stuck is that I have been gluten free for 3 years - mostly because I feel like I'm going to die immediately upon consuming it...

I have not tried massage therapy.  As a former massage therapist I would have to say that the particular brand of pain I experience would not be helped by massage.  Especially on the days my skin feels like it is on fire.

I have considered trying acupuncture but have not yet gone down that path.

Long story short - I would rather use an alternative therapy, have yet to find one that does the trick for me.
