Something odd is happening. I’m feeling a bit better. Ever since I did that juice fast three weeks ago things have been getting gradually a bit better. It is a slow, creeping up thing. It’s been at the back of my mind all week. I didn’t want to say, or even think anything earlier, because it has only been a small change; at first. But, it is worthy of a mention now, but because it is unavoidable: something’s changed, my body is waking up – I feel a bit better.
Tonight I watched a movie at home. Unknown, with Liam Neeson. (It was alright, but now where near as good as Django Unchanged. Whoaza! That new Quentin Tarantino film was A-MA-ZING. Saw that Friday night at the Cinema. Real full-on power entertainment that film. Splendid. I can highly recommend that one. Got the same German bloke from Inglorious Bastards. Another cracker from Tarantino.)
Anyway, sorry where was I? Oh yeah, I watched the Neeson film this evening. I had a snack attack. I had some raw cheese, nuts, fresh rye bread that I got at the market this morning, olive oil to dip the bread, one date, eight prunes, an apple cut into slithers, and a banana. A TV snack attack, all laid out neat and tidy on a wooden board to make it look posh like in a Jamie Oliver restaurant. And, I also had a beer!
Warm beer as the Americans would say. Only a mild bitter, but this is extremely unusual. I rarely drink anything at home. And when I do, I only ever drink, on my own that is, when I’m feeling fine. It’s a signal. When I feel like beer, it means I am most certainly feeling better, funky even. No matter what aches and pains I still have, craving a beer is always a good sign. Well, for me it is anyway.
But it’s not the juice fast. That helped. Maybe it kick-started things? But I think this is the aloe vera doing this.
And I don’t think this is the liver herbs either. Yes, I started round two of the liver Humaworm herbs 12 days ago. Only a couple of days left until I finish this round, then I break for two weeks again. That’s been ok. That’s helping. But this getting better doesn’t feel like the liver herbs either. It definitely feels like the aloe vera is the driving force behind this upturn. Let me explain:
I have been on the aloe vera gel for three weeks now. I have been drinking the stuff. I never even knew you could drink it! I thought it was something you rubbed in to your skin? Odd eh! Apparently drinking it is normal. Apparently.
I started low, 10mls morning and night. I’m up at 25mls per dose at the moment. Need to take things slow (as usual!). Heading towards 60ml per dose, but we will see how it goes. The book says to take it easy and go slow.
In that time I have had the following changes:
My BM’s are easier. Definitely easier, and more frequent too. Moved to twice a day and today was the optimum: three times. Rock ‘n’ roll!
My food intolerances have gone. Wheat was ok only in small doses before, but now seems totally fine. Nice!
I can eat fruit no problem now too. I used to give me blood sugar issues before. But seems that’s no longer a problem.
And the big one: I am hungry all the time. Even after meals. I have experienced this before, and it always meant I was getting better. Remember I am underweight, under or mal-nourished because my digestion got screwed up when I had the heart problem last year. I am eating tons of food at the moment. I am hungry all the time. I am trying to slow things down so I am supplementing my diet with regular fresh juices. Two big veggies juices today for example.
This hungry thing is important. Always a good sign for me. Means my body to coming back to life. Up-taking vitamins and minerals. I have gained 3kg since I lost 2kg doing the juice fast.
Anyway, its early days. This could just be an upwards-lull?? Who knows? Full effects of the aloe vera take 2-3 months to kick in. It is a gradual thing. But the early signs are good. And that’s important. It could be the juice fast, it could be the liver herbs, it could be all three things…in fact it probably is all three things working together…but I’m pretty sure it’s the aloe vera. I don’t actually care what is doing it, so I will continue doing everything I’m doing now, but the aloe vera is looking very promising.
This is part 1 of the Aloe Vera Experiment. I will report on any further gains.
Oh yes, and I’m happier these days too:-)
That’s all folks!
