Sounds just like me!! I was in the ER once a week for dehydration and once I almost had to have dialysis because my kidneys were not functioning. The drs told me it was all in my head and I needed behavioral therapy to figure out what I was doing wrong because the meds stopped working. I went to see a natropathic physician as last resort and it saved my life. My cousin had a similar experience. The natropath helped her too. I am now two years out from seeing my unconventional dr and have virtually no problems. Please look past the conventional wisdom regarding alternative medicine - It saved my life... maybe it can help your mom.
