It’s not all blue skies

Hi All,

I sincerely apologize for not posting for over 2 months. Life quickly got very hectic as the semester started- both in work and in my personal life.

If I didn’t have time to post, you can only imagine the trouble I had finding time to keep up with Iontophoresis. I missed way more treatments than I am happy to admit, and so of course, my sweating has returned.

The sweating is not as bad as what it was before Iontophoresis, but it is still present. No matter what, HH is in my genes. It’s in my DNA. Without treatment, I will always sweat.

I feel so angry with myself. I finally found a tool that helps my HH, and I am not taking advantage of it. Yes, I’ve been really busy, but I know I could have found more time than I felt I had.  I’m blaming only myself.

When I think about my situation, my mood starts spiraling downwards. Mostly I am just angry with myself.

Holidays are coming up, and I will be able to take more time off from work. I’m definitely bringing the Iontophoresis device home and will be using it every other day. I’m going to start the initial treatments again.

Hope all is well with you and Happy Holidays!

    • Hi Ashlee- I was very lucky to have the Iontophoresis machine donated to me by the R.A. Fischer company. Their technology is amazing and I can happily say the MD-1a Galvanic unit works really well for me!

  1. Dear Caryn

    I know how you feel. The iontophoresis works but the problem is that you have to devote time to the treatments on a regular basis and that can be challenging for someone with a busy schedule.

    Best of luck

    • Hi Ian,

      Thanks for your comment. Setting time aside for treatments on a regular basis is certainly an issue for me. I go straight from working my day job to rehearsals or playing/working concerts at night. By the time I get home, I am exhausted! I know I just need to stay up late and do it though. I feel so lucky to have this device and to finally have a treatment that works for me! 🙂

      Thanks again and Happy Holidays!

  2. Found your blog post through google – just wondering, are you using a homemade device or brand name? I have had success with homemade devicies, but after not mainitaining treatment for nearly 2 1/2 months, my problem returned and I haven’t been able to get it working again! 😦

    • Hi Kevin,

      Good to hear from you! I am using a brand name device- R.A. Fischer.
      I’m sorry to hear that you haven’t been able to get it working again after stopping treatment for a while. This is a little concerning for me. I will keep you posted with my treatments and let you know if I have any trouble.
