Finally the answers l wanted.
Today l went to see my new gp very nice doctor. When we talked he was so honest. He asked me at first how do you want me to help you? Then he explained l really can't help.you with your autoimmune encephalitis/encephalopathy. He said l haven't been to training for this so this is not my speciality. I told him l understand l was just following up with you after my hospital admission..So we talked and the question l always wanted answered since had the liver disease if it was the same. He told me yes because the brain disease affect the liver if it get to that point and vice versa. He said not to many doctors don't know what to do or how to help the patient so he said you will have to liver with it. Which l refuse to believe. God has brought me out of a lot of problems with this illness and l know he will do the same. And when l went to see him l got dizzy and couldn't walk to get into the office. Thank God someone was going into the office. He said to me l thought you had drop your keys because l wasn't all the way down on the ground so after 4yrs since l was having ammonia issues a doctor finally gives you the information you thought you knew but all the doctors you went to couldn't tell you. I ordered a new book about taking care of you health problems the natural way. Love the book. And my husband was starting to have memory problems and he doctor recommended natural products and a strike diet. No more doctor pepper for him so we are trying to eat right . It will help if l want to lose wait and get healthy at the same time.

Hi Lisa @techi, it is comforting to have a doctor that can relate and start by asking "how do you want me to help you?". I think it shows concern and that the doctor is listening to your input. When I first started looking into diet and changing my lifestyle to help with my health issues, I ran across a Dr. Terry Wahls who wrote The Wahls Protocol book. She has also done a few TED Talks and has an amazing story of her own to tell about getting rid of her symptoms of MS through cellular nutrition. You can read her story here: https://terrywahls.com/about/about-terry-wahls/
Here's one of her TED Talks — Minding your mitochondria | Dr. Terry Wahls | TEDxIowaCity
Thank you so very much for posting this TED Talk! Much appreciated!
@johnbishop thanks so much John. I am coming out to Minnesota in Oct so l will let you know what the liver doctor says. But l was listening to Joseph Prince and he was saying the Lord never ment for us to be sick thats why in died on the cross and shed his blood so l am definitely standing on that word. My daughter didn't to much care for my hematologist and l agreed with her because he said he would see me next year so l am going bvb to be switching.
John Thanks for posting about Dr Wahls ….we can't have enough good information that can help us …
