Cynthia Foster received her M.D. degree in 1996 from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Due, in part, to her own personal healing from an incurable disease with natural healing methods, she developed a special interest in healing incurable diseases naturally.

Since her dramatic healing, Dr. Foster has been an advocate for alternative methods of healing. She has been interviewed numerous times on radio programs and mentioned in the press as well as featured in magazines, newspapers, and on television, educating about the benefits of natural healing. A pioneer in the herbal healing industry, she has also served as herbal product trainer and spokesperson for several herbal companies. Author of the controversial book Stop the Medicine! which has sold 13,000 copies, and a soon-to-be-published book, she has given lectures all over North America from Portland, Oregon to Orlando, Florida to British Columbia, Canada. Her soon-to-be-published book includes the groundbreaking natural methods she has used to help hundreds of people across the country to heal from incurable diseases, including a special herbal product line that utilizes a unique processing technique to yield herbal extracts that are 2 to 5 times stronger than ordinary herbal preparations.

At the age of 16, she participated in a special state program for gifted teenagers where she studied quantum physics. Currently she lives in the Los Angeles area where she has taught Western Medical Pharmacology, Medical Terminology, Internal Medicine, and Diagnostic Laboratory Tests at the prestigious acupuncture college Dongguk Royal University. She is a registered, certified yoga instructor as well as an accomplished concert pianist. She provided individual and telephone consultations for over 10 years. A visionary doctor, she is one of only a handful of conventionally trained doctors in the country who successfully uses purely natural methods yet does not practice conventional medicine. Her hospital and emergency room training has enabled her to handle severe and acute diseases. This background gives her the unique ability and understanding to deal with severe diseases using purely natural techniques.

Dr. Foster is located in Los Angeles in the Pacific Time Zone.

Could you be a little more specific about the tingly painful pain? And your age? Any other digestive problems such as constipation or diarrhea?

It could be a number of things. Gastroesophageal Reflux can be associated with esophageal spasms. This means your esophagus goes into a spasm when you eat certain foods or food with certain textures. When the esophagus goes into a spasm, people feel a strong pain in the chest area and it can sometimes cause vomiting. The spasm literally will not allow food to pass down to the stomach. This can happen when you have a stomach ulcer, gastroenteritis or other inflammation in your digestive tract. Acidic foods (orange juice and vinegar are the worst) and spices (such as raw garlic and onion) typically cause pain in people with ulcers and gastroenteritis, and cooked foods are usually not as acidic; therefore do not cause as much pain. There is also another possibility of Crohn's disease which involves inflammation in various parts of the digestive tract. This can remain undiagnosed or misdiagnosed for years.

A few things you can do to differentiate the problem: when you have the pain, apply a heating pad or hot water bottle right where you feel it, liquid minerals or place a powdered or liquid calcium supplement under the tongue. If this releases the pain, you'll know it's a spasm. Spasms are usually associated with inflammation (as mentioned above), and a mineral deficiency. Taking liquid minerals under the tongue or a bit of lobelia extract can help to release these types of spasms.

Sometimes people have symptoms that are not taken seriously. That's too bad for so many people that have unusual symptoms and are just seeking relief. No one likes being told they are crazy while they are suffering and in pain. Don't let anyone tell you you're crazy. If you have symptoms, they are there for a reason. It's how your body is communicating with you to let you know something's wrong. We just need to learn how to speak our body's language so we understand the messages.

You might look into chia seed, flax seed recipes (flax seed tea) as these are very soothing and healing to the digestive tract. If flax seed tea soothes your stomach, it's possible you have an inflamed digestive tract.

I'll be happy to help you figure it out.
