Customer Question

I am 77 yrs. old. I have chronic pain (sciatica); obesity; arthritis; ulcerative colitis; diabetes; high b.p. My Drs. have prescribed Fentanyl for the pain; Byetta for diabetes; several meds for colitis and b.p. I can't walk more than a few steps without pain; only feasible exercises are in thers[u pool and recumbent bike. I take thyroid meds, and have lost my appetite due to meds, but still don't lose weight. I would like to find a Dr. who uses both conventional and holistic treatments, or a holistic dr. who could work with my regular drs. How can I find such a person? Google was not much help. I live in SW suburbs of Chicago.--Grandma Nancy.
