Master Cleanse: The results are in! Mega success!

who-is-awesomeAfter twenty-five impressive days fasting on the Master Cleanse I will now set out all the benefits it has given me. And I must say I have some pretty cool gains here. Seriously great. Not sorted out everything, but significant steps have been taken up my ladder to better health.

After over two years being off-games with no exercise possible due to excessive fatigue, I have at last been able to re-start my beloved yoga this week. Hooray! That’s a BIG deal for me. One that I am gloriously happy about. I consider re-starting my workouts to be the very tippy-top of my wish-list. The Master Cleanse did this. Powerful stuff! My fatigue has gone!

At the start of the fast I listed out all the things I had wrong with me. Now I will go back to that list and review each problem and set out what’s changed.

1) Fatigue is the main problem. It is chronic and it will not go away: - Ummm, well, yes, I don’t want to tempt fate but the fatigue seems to have gone. Brilliant eh! I feel pretty normal now and have a normal amount of energy too. I require less sleep as well. I only need six and a half to seven hours sleep now. All of this year I have needed, and I mean NEEDED, eight hours.

2) I have very mild depression: – Gone! Boom!

3) Lab tests showed high reverse T3 (RT3) problem: – No idea what labs show now, but I took my temperatures last week and they were all bang on perfect. Happy dayz!

4) Lab tests showed I have low DHEA: – Untested.

4) I have had problems taking B-vits and B12 : Untested.

5) Chelation made the fatigue worse. Why? No idea : – Still no idea, although I blame Vit D levels.

6) Adrenals still slightly out: – Temps all level and perfect, so assume this problem is no more!

7) I have burning feet. Sole of my left foot gets horribly hot, burning hot: This disappeared completely during all 25 days of the fast. But, it seems to be coming back a little now, 10 days after I ended the fast. Not sure why. Not even sure what it is. But still, it is about 80-90 pct better that it was pre-fast. Rash on foot is 90pct better too. Dry skin on left heal is 90pct better too.

8) Blood sugar problem with some hypoglycemia an issue: It wasn’t that bad, but it was an issue and now is much less bad: about 70pct better than it was.

9) Libido low-ish: Unchanged.

10) When I get the fatigue kicking in, I get this weird grippy hand thing: Gone.

11) I cannot do any exercise. No gym. No yoga: Ha!!! Sorted! Yoga has restarted!!!! Happy dayz!!! I did three sessions last week and have done 6 practices in the last 7 days this week. I am getting up at 5am, having a one hours yoga session, then going to work. I need less sleep. This is just like the good old days and shows I have regained my mojo!!! Mega-deluxe-fantastico-coolio!

12) I have good days and bad days: Days are pretty ok at the moment. Although my shoulders hurt at little. More of that later.

13) Booze does not agree: Not tried any booze yet; untested.

14) No wheat: Not tried any yet; untested.

15) I eat a lot at each meal: I still eat a lot. I lost 6kg during the fast. Now I am rebuilding and I am eating a lot of food again. I regained 2kg in the first 7 days.

16) I have a furry tongue in the mornings upon waking: I still have the furry tongue, but it is about 80pct better than during the fast. And about 40pct better the pre-fast. That means I need to do more fasting.

17) I have just discovered I have a vitamin D deficiency: Got tested again and Vit D levels now fine. High even. That comes from the sunbathing I did on holidays, not the fasting.

18) Most nights I get up to pee once: Still getting up some night’s, but not every night, so that is an improvement.

19) I have mild carpel tunnel syndrome on my left wrist: It is better than it was, but still there. I would say 35pct better since the fast. Yoga is tricky but do-able. I must be very careful still: no sun salutations yet.

20) Ears are fine, but for some odd reason I cannot listen to loud headphone music: untested.

21) Sinus’s blocked half the time: Sorted. All clear now. This was one of the things that was greatly impeding my yoga. Clear sinus’s enable good yoga. Good news eh!

So there we have it. Pretty damn funky and cool eh! Lots of problems sorted out, or at least better. That list was the list of everything that was wrong too.

I have to say that fast was a MASSIVE success. To regain my energy, to restart my yoga, to have level temperatures at the right level, to help and resolve some of the hassles: that’s pretty damn wonderful and makes doing the fast gigantically rewarding: success always is awesome and I feel awesome too!

But it’s not over yet. Unfortunately I have to admit the fast was finished too soon. 25 days was not enough – for me and my body. Wild eh!! At the end of the fast it got pain right between my shoulder blades. This is a typical liver signal. It was quite a strong sharp pain too that has lingered all week. I didn’t have this before. My tongue also remained furry all during the fast, and afterwards too, which indicates I still have crap in me that needs exiting.

So yeah, it will need repeating. But the Master Cleanse is not a hardship. The fast was very easy to actually do and with all the benefits I have gained I am greatly looking forward to my next MC. I have pencilled in January 2014 for the next attempt.

In the meantime, because my shoulders hurt so much, I will be addressing my liver and gallbladder next.  I have just done a liver flush this past weekend. You know those things with grapefruit juice, olive oil, and Epsom salts. Yeah, the thing that Cutler is against. Yes, those horrid hardcore liver flushes. I have not done one since 2007.

This time the flush went off like clockwork with no problems or hassles. Last time I did one of these beasts it took two weeks to recover from!! Hardcore indeed! Re-reading Andreas Moritz’s book, even he admits its like major surgery of the liver – but with no knives. This time I was fine the evening afterwards. All pretty straight forward for a change. Had a colonic monday night too. Never really like all those tubes and whatnot, but essential to do when liver flushing to get everything cleaned up afterwards.

I got zero gallstones out. Odd eh! Not sure what that means. I did get a load of chaff, and gunky green bile, just no stones. And I did feel better after too: warmer.

Now that’s finished I have started some Humaworm Liver herbs. These are two weeks on, two weeks off herbs. So I will do a couple of rounds, see what happens. Maybe do another flush too, depending on how I feel.

But, as you can see, things are looking up for me. Proper up too. To have banished the fatigue is a major event in my healing. I have the Master cleanse to thank for that, but I must also point out sorting out the Vit D problem was also very important too. Could not have got this better without the Vit D.

How did I sort out the Vit D decifency? I went on holiday and sun bathed a lot. Once I understood I was deficient, I went out of my why to get loads of sun. Once I had a base tan, I didn’t use suntan lotion anymore. I did more sunbathing when I got back home on the weekends. Re-tested Vit D and it came in way above what it was and right into the GREAT zone. Just two months later.

Phew! I am a busy boy. So many things done recently. Just in this one blog entry I have discussed fasting, liver flushing, liver herbs, Vit D….so many things to do!

AND… I urge all my friendly readers to do $hit. Do stuff. Do things. Experiment. Try new ideas. Because eventually you will hit pay-dirt and something, somewhere will hit the spot like a champion, hero and superstar! Then you too can get up at 5am and stand on your head! LOL.

That’s all folks!

PS. I have also made additional notes about the Master Cleanse. It will make this post too long and boring, so I will save that for another day. The title of that blog entry is gonna be: Success! Or  maybe Happy Dayz! Or Major Progress Has Been Made! Or Observations Post-Master Cleanse. Or Good Health Has Returned? Undecided yet what the title will but, but you get the gist! Let the good times roll!

My chelation re-starts

images i'm backOk, I need to start planning things out. Life is getting full again and I need to arrange a plan for the coming months. So many things to do!

Important considerations:

1) My liver and gallbladder are still congested. Muscle testing confirmed this. My symptoms confirm this. I need more HW Liver herbs.

2) Because of the liver and gallbladder situation I might, repeat might, do a liver flush. Maybe. I have been thinking about it. These are the heavy-duty things with epsom salts, olive oil and grapefruit juice. Not recommended for us mercury toxic dudes and dudettes because they are so hardcore. Cutler furiously frowns on them! But I am feeling a lot better now. I have been working on the liver and gallbladder for months. All the herbs have certainly all helped, but I do get the feeling we have a log-jam situation in there. I am seeing a muscle tester soon. We will see what a professional thinks my body should do. A liver flush will take out one whole weekend. I have done them before, when I was ultra sick and they were heavy-duty. Again, this is just a possibility.

3) My kidneys are still congested. Need some kidney herbs. I have not done any kidney herbs for nine months and they need doing.

4) I need to experiment with increasing my milk thistle intake. Need a free week to attempt that. I am currently on one cap a day. Without that cap I feel worse. It is essential liver support for me. But when I take two caps I get a real splitter of a headache that will not shift: or it did the last time I tried a couple of years ago. Now I need to test it out again: see if I can handle two caps after all the liver herbs.

5) And I need to restart chelation. I will not chelate weekly. I have never really been able to safely chelate weekly. Bi-weekly was always better for me: twice a month.

So yeah, as you can see, plenty of things to get my teeth stuck into. Never a dull moment.

I know some of you have been wondering when I’d pull my finger out and re-start chelation, but in my defence I have been busy. My healing schedule/plan has been full-on and constant for the last 6 years; it’s just that chelation had to stop with the heart problemo. In fact, let me list out exactly what I did last year:

January 2012: Humaworm parasite cleanse.

February & March: 45 days kidney herbs. Also started a six month herbal bowel cleanse.

April: 30 days Chinese heart herbs.

May: After the Chinese herbs screwed me up, I focused on bowel cleaning herbs and had six colonics.

June: Another 30 days HW parasite cleanse. Mega diet change. Switched to über healthy, no wheat, no dairy, nor any refined foods.

July: Tried some liver herbs but side-effects made life impossible and had to stop after a week.

August: Humaworm Candida herbs. The most difficult set of herbs I have ever done, but felt much better afterwards.

September: High dosages campaign of pro-biotics, then Essiac herbs for 18 days, then on to SHS liver herbs.

October: Specific Carbohydrate diet. Still on the bowel cleanse and added some P&B shakes for fun.

End October: Another round of Humaworm Candida herbs.

November: Sets of castor oil packs weekly for my liver.

December: Essiac tea for my liver

January 2013: Humaworm parasite cleanse, plus juice fast.

February: Humaworm Liver herbs and started Aloe Vera drinking.

So yeah, I took a break from chelation because I was so sick – but I was still full-on action hero for my health. It’s not like I was sitting around twiddling my thumbs wishing myself better. All that stuff has got me back to being in a position to re-start my chelation now.

GAD-VL8SL-BKMonday I wore my special chelation vibration watch. It has an alarm that vibrates on your wrist as is ideal for me when I chelate in the office: Vibralite-8. It still works – so no excuses now!

As you can tell I have been mentally pumping myself up for a chelation round…and and and, and I started my 75th round last night. Happy dayz!! The heart problem I had caused me to pause my chelation regime for 16 long months. My last round was October 2011. Yes, the heart problem was a serious pothole along my road. But that’s behind me now and I look forwards and don’t dwell on the past.

My only concern in re-starting my chelation is screwing it up, LOL. As a rule my rounds are pretty easy and manageable. The only problems I get are when I make a mistake during a round and end early. I mean like missing a dose. If I end rounds early they always hurt. Always. I have been reminding myself to stay focused and on point. On that note I now have triple alarms in the night for each of my three wake-ups for taking the caps. Main alarm, plus double back up. Nice!

5mg ALA every 2.5 hours during the day and 3 hours at night.
Round 75 here we come!!!!

I feel like part of the gang again now.

That’s all folks!

A day in the life…

IMG_0147Sunday: I had a lie-in this morning. I got out of bed at eight am. I worked in the garden yesterday and I was knackered at day’s end. Exercise takes it out me.

First thing I drank my morning dose of Aloe Vera. It’s going very well and that stuff really is agreeing with me in a big way. Today I upped the dose to the top level I have been aiming at: 60ml. I started on 10ml per dose 4 weeks ago. As ever I am careful and taking things nice ‘n’ slow. I will hold at 60ml morning and evening now. That’s more than enough.

Next I drank my usual morning pint of water. I have done that daily for 6 years now. Then I made a pot of herbal tea and settled in my room, opened the curtains to let the sun stream in, and put on a new CD: DJ_Kicks, Maya Jane Coles. Quality house music. If you like a bit of house…I highly recommend it.

Once settled down on my dark brown leather sofa and got stuck into the book I’m reading at the moment: ‘Caliban’s War’ by James S.A.Corey. This is the second book in a trilogy. A ‘kickass space opera’ as they market this things. Very good too. Very kickass! I read for about an hour.

I made breakfast: bacon and eggs, sourdough bread with butter and honey. Everything is of course organic. So far my ideal Sunday morning.

I shower and shave and I’m ready to get in the garden at 11am. The sky is clear and the sun is shining. We had a frost last night but by the time I’m out it’s the warmest day of the year so far and all the sparkly frost has gone. In the sun it feels lovely and warm, although my iphone tells me it’s only 11 degs.

I have my work cut out. I have ordered in two tons of well rotted horse $hit. Now I have to spread it all around my garden. I have two big bags that got craned on to the front drive last week. I have to wheelbarrow the whole lot from the front garden to the back and then spread it all around the beds.

Why? Why spread horse $hit all around my lovely garden? Because that’s the secret to amazingly beautiful and bountiful gardens is: $hit! Serious too. Plants need lots of organic matter to thrive on. Well rotten horse $hit is like a turbo boost for all the plants; just my style: – )

It’s hard work shovelling all that crap; brings on a lovely sweat on this beautiful winters morning. Feels like spring. It’s coming soon too; all the bulbs are pushing their heads up. Because the work is hard, I alternate between shovelling and chopping last years dead plants back. The wife joins me chopping. The kids too have a quick hack, but quickly get sidetracked into hide-and-seek and football.

I’m outside in the sun, sweating, pottering around the garden for two wonderful hours. Nice to get out. I have missed the sunshine this winter. Seems to have been bleaker than usual this year.

For lunch my 4.5 year old son helps me make a quick fresh juice: one orange, half a lime, six carrots, four sticks of celery, an apple and half a cucumber. I was gonna have some bread too, but I juiced too much, about 1.5 pints, so it’s just juice at lunch today.

After juice: I am in charge of dinner tonight, so I quickly put everything together; slow cooked lamb stew with carrots, onions, home-grown garlic and one little turnip. Will have it with brown rice, so I set that to soak in water with a dash of apple cider vinegar. I got some asparagus from the market yesterday; looks lovely and will no doubt taste divine with butter melted on it.

After that I head back out into the sun. After more chopping we have filled the last compost bin. So now I have to empty another bin and spend the next hour or so shovelling compost on to the veggie beds.  Again hard work, but satisfying to be out, active and in the sun. In the pic above the beds that are dark are covered in $hit, and at the end you can see the veggie beds covered in compost.

IMG_0150At 4pm I am tired but happy, and it’s time for a snack.

We have amazing organic dark rye sourdough bread from the market, to be dipped in organic olive oil. Raw cheese called ‘Lancashire bomb’. Cashew nuts and pumpkin seeds: pre-soaked and rehydrated to neutralise the phytic acid. A pot of herbal tea and some of awesome homemade raw chocolate.

I made the chocolate last weekend after an old friend read my book and wanted some of it!! (Hi Femke) Raw cacao, raw maca power, cashew nuts (pre-soaked and whatnot), honey and all mixed up with coconut oil. Now this coconut oil is no ordinary coconut oil: no, this is personally hand delivered by my bro all the way from Goa beach in India. Thanks man!!

Tastes wonderful. I am eating some right now as I type this up. I limit myself to three chunks per sitting. At the moment it’s all gummed up in my teeth…yummmmmmmmy! Food of the gods this stuff.

Anyway, that’s about all for today. As you can see I have regained some strength. I could not shovel anything last year because I was too sick. The aloe vera is doing some seriously good things to me. I will write another separate post all about aloe vera when I’m further along down the line. It takes two to three months to get the full effects…but I can say the first month has been really cool. I feel much better.  And I’m regaining weight as my body comes back to like again. 4kg since the juice fast. A very good sign.

And it is now inevitable – I am definitely feeling much better these days and chelation will have to restart soon. I can’t put it off now I’m feeling better. That is inevitable, although I’m a tad apprehensive; I don’t like side-effects. But, if I am to get proper and permanently better, chelation is inevitable.

Oh yeah, I also finished the second round of Humaworm Liver herbs last week. I am still struggling with a congested gallbladder. Muscle testing confirms this. The herbs are good and I feel better on them than off them. I will start the third round of HW liver herbs a week on Monday.

That’s all folks!

The Aloe Vera Experiment: Part 1. Three weeks in

Treating-Bleeding-Hemorrhoids-with-Aloe-VeraSomething 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!

Humaworm Liver Herbs – Round 1 finished + Juice Fast

london-snowHello from snowy London.

Ok, 19 days into 2013 and I have completed the first in a series of 2-week herbal liver cleanses from Humaworm. Instructions are two weeks on, two weeks off. I am now in the two-week off zone.

The first week on the herbs was intense and jittery with side-effects kicking in pretty hard. I had to buckle down and cling on for dear life. It was pretty rough, but manageable. I still worked normal days in the office. When things got too much I did drop the dosage down to half and things calmed down to more manageable levels again.

The second week was plain sailing, I could feel the herbs doing their job, but it was much less intense and I did not have to reduce the dose at all. The hard work was done in the first week and by the second week I was in the groove: liver detoxing! Nice!

My nose has cleared a little, maybe 60pct better than it was. I have kinda semi-permanent blocked sinus’s & nose. The herbs freed them up and I can breathe more easily. That’s cool, although they are not totally free, but freer than they were. My sense of taste has improved too. Nausea has reduced right down and the grippy hand thing has retreated.

That’s all good news, but I must admit to being a little disappointed now the herbs are finish. I guess I hoped this batch would make a massive difference. But now that I have stopped, I don’t feel massively better. I feel a little better, but it is plainly obvious I have just scratched the surface here on detoxing my liver and gallbladder. They obviously remain severely congested. Muscle testing confirms that. My symptoms confirm that. Now that I have stopped the herbs my BM’s are slowly reverting to a light tan colour: a sure sign that things are clogging up again: a sure sign that the herbs really helped, but also a sure sign that their job is not complete.

So yeah, kinda disappointed. I have been working for 8-9 months to be in a position to even attempt to clean my liver, and now I am able, and was actually strong enough to endure the herbs…I really wanted them to ‘sort everything out’ in one fall swoop! Ho hum.

I did understand the herbs were unlikely to solve everything overnight, but would have been nice if they had made a proper big difference. I guess it’s a bit like buying a lottery ticket and dreaming of all the cool and wonderful things you are gonna do when you win £26 million quid – buy a new Porsche, jack the job, move to the beach – and then to be disappointed when you discover you won jack $hit. That kind of disappointment. I knew deep down it would take longer, but it would have been nice in any case.

But this is reality. This is the real world and it takes time to detox. I have been sick for a long time, and however much I wish or want instant miracle cures, I have to be, we have to be, realistic. It took a long time to get sick, and it will take time to detox enough to be better. Not very long, much much less time than it took to get sick, but 2 weeks liver herbs is a bit optimistic!

I’m just a bit grumpy tonight: I have got cool benefits from doing the herbs already and I look forward to more of the same when I do the next round.

Yes, it just takes time. That’s all. Time. Two weeks is not enough time to completely detox my liver. I got loads of signs and signals that my liver is greatly congested, but it will take longer than 14 days. And that’s what I will do. I will continue with the liver cleansing tactics. I have done my first set of two week liver herbs. I will pause for two weeks as per instructions, and then I will do some more liver herbs: I am racked up and loaded and ready to roll: I have two more Humaworm liver herbs stored in the freezer.

When I say pause, I don’t actually mean pause pause. I mean; I will pause the liver herbs and think of something else to do in the meantime, LOL.

And I had been scratching my head all week, wondering what I could do in these fallow two weeks in-between liver herbs. I don’t like doing nothing. Even two weeks seems way too long to sit around picking my arse. One of chaps in the office started a 9 day aloe vera fast. And this morning I thought, “Yeah, why not, good idea”. Never done a aloe vera fast.

So I started a juice fast today. Bought some aloe vera down the local health freak shop. And here we are: day 1 of the juice fast with added aloe vera. Nice. Everything is going fine so far. I am majoring on veggies, and minimising fruit. Fruit just takes the edge off the mega green veggie taste.

Not sure how long I will do the juice fast. Last time I did it, I only managed 3 days and it was horrendous. Horrendous in a horrid-that-does-NOT-agree way. But that was a year ago when I was having the major heart issue. I will try for minimum 2 days and see how it goes. If I can do 4 days that would be excellent. 5 days would be wild:-)

That’s the plan, and I like a good plan Batman!

That’s all folk’s!

Kick Arse! Resolutions, Essiac Herbs, Healing Crisis, Humaworm Liver Herbs.

I always start the year with New Year resolutions. They help me stay focused and remind me what the plan is. This year my 2013 resolution is to restart chelation after the heart problem stopped everything in its tracks at the beginning of last year. 2012 was a bit of a ‘mare: right back to the bad old days. Hopefully 2013 will be better. In fact I am sure it will be better as the worst is already over and I’m well and truly on the mend. Chelation is scheduled to restart in Feb-March time, once I have cleaned my liver, gallbladder and kidneys with herbs. I am working on them as we speak.

Essiac tea:
I have finished the Essiac tea herbs for now. I took these to help detox my liver. I managed 28 days in total, although I did have a four day break around day 20 because…because I had a healing crisis! Woo hoo! Always a good thing to have a healing crisis. Always a BIG detox and always the signal of change: and change is good!

Just before Christmas I came down with a serious dose of what I initially though of as The Man Flu. It was really hardcore, sofa-bound stuff. All the usual fluey symptoms but I also had major painful left shoulder too. Left shoulder pain is always a signal of liver issues. In this case a signal of the Essiac herb detoxing my liver so much I had a healing crisis.

How do I know it was a healing crisis and not just the flu? Well because it was just like other healing crisis’s I have had. It was short and sharp. I had a very bad three days, and then almost overnight it completely disappeared. Two days after the fever broke, all symptoms had vanished completely. That was entirely different to my wife’s dose of the flu that lasted almost a month. Hard and fast flu’s, that last three days, and then completely disappear is a sure sign that it’s a healing crisis.

Another healing crisis signal is that one of my symptoms went into overdrive and then totally disappeared. I had been getting up in the night to pee at least once per night all year. During the healing crisis I was sleeping like a complete village idiot and was up, shivering and pissing five or six times a night. After I recovered, my sleep was undisturbed by wanting to pee. Happy days! Thank you Essiac herbs. High five!

Essiac herbs are supposed to be taken for anything up to six months. However I was still on a low dose, 3 x 10ml per day, and they were making me itchy and depressed. Only a little, but they where dragging me down, making life miserable.

I did 28 days, I had a healing crisis, I got rid of some symptoms, I detoxed myself some…and enough is enough. 28 days was sufficient this time round and time to do something different. I didn’t muscle test this, I just instinctively knew these herbs had done their bit and it was time to move on. I don’t like being depressed anyway. Not good to be miserable over Christmas. I will however return to the Essiac herbs. If they give me hassles, it means they need repeating. They should be easier after I have detoxed myself in other ways anyways.

Humaworm Liver herbs:
The initial plan is I am going to try and tough these herbs out at as high a dose as possible. I have a weeks holiday now and I’m going to try and push it. These herbs are two weeks on/two weeks off and then repeat. These are the herbs I have been working towards for the past 8 months. I did try them earlier last year, but reactions and side-effects where horrible. I obviously needed to do other easier things before I tackled the liver.

kickass movie posters 4113x6000 wallpaper_www.wallpapermay.com_19So now, after I have bowel cleansed, parasite cleansed, candida cleansed, castor oil packed, detox bathed, and used the Essiac herbs, it is time to address the liver again. Hopefully I am ready now? These herbs are strong, no messing about, the real deal, MOFO herbs. They kick arse! They kick my arse! I usually have to adjust the dose down low in order to manage side-effects. (If these herbs are still to powerful for me, I will stop them and do kidney herbs instead. That’s plan B.)

Day 1 – half dose was fine to ease my way in.

Day 2 – full dose was intense but just about manageable. Tingly, jittery, hand grippy, nauseous, withdrawn and mentally slightly numb. Stick to the plan: tough it out! Muscle testing continues to show troubled liver/gallbladder and kidneys.

Day 3 – as per day 2, but i did have a four hour period of feeling great! Right back to my good old self again. Always nice to revisit those dayz again. A nice signal that i’m on the right track.

Day 4 is today – The situation remains intense with all the fun as per day 2 with the addition of some pretty hardcore heartburn. A decent 6.5 out of 10 on the richter scale of pain and hassle. All signs that the herbs are detoxing me. However on more a positive note: my nose and sinus’s have cleared!!! That’s GREAT news! I can smell again! They have been blocked for 18 months or so. That’s rock n roll cool! None of the other sets of herbs made any difference to them, but within a couple of days on these liver herbs..my sinus’s clear. Winning! That’s how I roll!

Also my BM’s have gone nice ‘n’ dark. Another clear signal that my liver and gallbladder are releasing enough bile to digest my food. This is a combination of the Essiac tea and these Humaworm liver herbs. It has been getting a little better, but these HW herbs seem to make made things a lot better. Hopefully it will last! My right forearm also no long hurts. According to Hulda Clark a hurting right forearm is a … yes, you guessed it: a liver signal!

It’s early days, only four days in, but positive so far. Hopefully the side-effects will be manageable for the full two weeks. Time will tell.

Happy New Year and I hope 2013 will be a healthy year for us all.

That’s all folks!

Time to detox my Liver: Essiac Tea

Now its time to detox my liver.

In the last six months I have detoxed and cleaned my bowels, my parasites and my candida. It’s been a tough road to travel, but I have been getting better in fits and starts. Next in line is my liver. I have tried four times already this year to do some liver herbs, but each time side-effects and reactions made life completely unbearable, which just meant I needed to do other things first, to ready myself for the liver herbs. Now that I have completed the bowel, parasite and candida cleanses I seem to be ready to tackle the liver again. The castor oil packs seemed to have cleared the way too, unblocked some liver-gallbladder-log-jam. Life is much better. Not perfect, but much better.

At home I have Humaworm liver herbs, liver herbs from www.SHS100.com and some herbs called Essiac Tea. I could not decide which set of herbs to try next, so I muscle tested everything and the result was the Essiac Tea came up the winner. So I started those herbs a couple of weeks ago.

Essiac Tea is an old skool American Indian herbal cure for cancer. (I don’t have cancer.) I have done these before and they are a strong detox. Very good for the liver. Powerful herbs to have the ability to cure the BIG C. Just what I need to turn my BM from light to dark, as they have done in the past.

essiac-reportI have read the original book about their discovery. Very interesting stuff. I always research all the herbs I take. Always.

I get strong reactions if I take too high dosages of most herbs, so as usual I started on a nice low dose to ease my way in: 3 x 20ml per day. After 3 days I upped the dose to 30ml per dose, but quickly had to reduce back down again bcoz life got difficult with side-effects.

I have been on the Essiac tea for 13 days so far. I tried again today to increase the dose upto 25ml per dose, but I tingle all over and it feels like someone is sandpapering underneath my skin. I itch all over my torso and my legs have got dry skin all over them. I need to drink lots of water otherwise I dry out and side-effects increase. Got a teeny tiny bit of heartburn too.

It’s nothing too bad, but it’s not the best fun in the world, so I will reduce down to 20ml per dose again. Life is fine at 20ml and I am not in a position to tough it out: I have a life!!!!!

But it’s not all difficult and horrid news, there is good news too. I am feeling better, nausea is gone, hypoglycaemia is massively reduced and I no longer need a mid-morning snack! Nice! I actually felt so fine I chanced a few beers last week. Nothing serious! Just a couple of bottles of beer. It’s Christmas and I have plenty of business entertaining lunches and dinners to attend.

I have more energy! I have been skipping up the stairs to the station platform, even overtaking people! Yes, that is unusual! I know something is happening when I do odd little things like that. I’m not ready for any yoga yet, but I am starting to think about it.

I have had some lucid dreams too. Happy, funky, exciting, clubbing dreams: always a good signal. My BM’s have darkened a little and there is now no undigested food in there either. That is a clear and strong signal that the herbs are doing their job of detoxing my liver. It means more bile is produced so I can digest more of the lovely grub I eat.

This is just from 13 days worth of herbs. 13 days out of how many? How long will I be on them? Well, the instructions say six months is a good length of time to give the body a decent clean. Six months…ho hum…that’s a long time! I will definitely reduce the dose back down to 20ml. There is no rush in this game. If I feel noticeably better after 13 days, think what I will feel like after 30 days, or 60 days, or 180 days. That’s a happy thought!

But I still gotta get through the side-effects and reactions. The tingly is unpleasant and something I could do without. As I type this, the tingly-$hit has moved to my feet. Yeah, not ready to raise the dose just yet.

Of course, these are all signals of success. Success in cleaning out some old poisons. Toxins hurt when they are inside and they hurt when they come out too. But once they are out…they can never hurt me again. I just have to take them out in small, manageable amounts so that I can continue to have a life. I think having a life is important. That’s the whole purpose of the herbs, so I can enjoy life without thinking of my health.

Overall I am massively better than I was at the beginning of this year when the heart issue crushed me, but I am still in take-care-of-myself-mode. Luckily I have done this all before, so I am travelling a well trodden path.

Anyway, that’s what’s happening at the mo: 13 days in on the Essiac herbs.

Anything else going on? Err, yes actually. I have had four sessions with Roma the Reiki lady. After the second treatment I was feeling worse. I had a long chat with Roma but she said this is normal (sometimes) when healing. The first treatment brings the issue to the surface, the second treatment addresses the problem, and the third treatment resolves the problem. And, that’s exactly what happened. I went ahead with the third treatment and after that things got a lot easier and life returned to a much more even keel. This coincided with starting the Essiac herbs, so my increase in health is also down to the Reiki. I am having a couple more Reiki treatments because they do agree with me. I love to feel the healing energy.

Anything else? Oh yeah, one more thing. I was snacking everyday on lovely fresh ‘n’ healthy olives. I was feeling fine in the mornings, but 2 hours after eating the olives I was jittery and felt like $hit. I muscle tested all my food and I discovered it was the olives. Very odd! Never heard of an olive allergy! Olive oil is fine. Anyway, whatever the reason, olives are now off my menu and I’m feeling much better for not eating them, thanks very much.

Health and healing is a complicated and multiple-action thing. I don’t care how I heal, so I try to do as many different things as possible to help myself. My mercury laden body needs all the help I can give it.

One more odd thing is happening. My wife and kids have all had the vomming virus, and they have all had flu too. And I’m talking proper man flu here. I never seem my wife so sick. She literally could not get out of bed she was so flu-ed up. The kids have both had the vomming and the flu. It’s been lingering for about 4 weeks now. All very annoying for them. The odd thing is: I haven’t had it yet! Odd eh! I must be healthy. Perplexed.

That’s about all for today. Looking forward to Christmas. I have a full house, with both sets of parents staying a couple of nights. I also have two weeks at home on holiday too! Nice!

Merry Christmas all.
