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!

Yet another bump along my journey…Adrenal Crash!

worldwar42-2357554Well, it seems I was not ready to re-start chelation. I have been feeling progressively worse since the last round finished three weeks ago. Seems the round has stressed me and my poor ol’ body and now I’m having some kind of episode/incident/crash.

I am off work sick this week. I suppose I could have dragged myself in, but it would have been horrid because I’m feeling pretty pikey. And also I need time to remain calm and I need to space to figure my $hit out.

Whats wrong? I’m freezing cold all the time, and I’m talking super chilled-to-the-bone cold. If I go outside a warm room I shiver constantly. I’m lacking in energy big time. Nauseas. I had a 2 day period of feeling depressed and down, but that’s gone now. I was scared, but I’m ok now. Now I’m just feeling a little sorry for myself. I’m definitely having a crisis. Chilling at home is minimising the crash, but chelation has caused a problem.

I was a bit worried about the old ticker, so I even went to see a regular doctor. He said my heart was fine, which is a BIG relief. Everything seemed fine to him. He is doing some thyroid blood tests. Not sure it was worth seeing a regular doc, but best to check in case it’s anything … well, anything mega serious is showing. Main thing is the heart is ok.

Ten days ago I also went to see a muscle tester lady. She said my liver was stressed, along with my adrenals and thyroid glands. Ummm, I knew about the liver and have been working on that for months now, but the adrenal and thyroid thang is a new re-discovery.

So I started taking my 3-a-day temperatures to see what’s going on.


Ummmmmm. Not a good graph. For those un-accustomed to temp graphs; my average temps should all be around the top of the first coloured band where is says 37.0 degs. As u can see it’s all rather low and unstable. The up and down jaggedness means my adrenals are shot. The low temps mean my thyroid is shot. Yes, F*$k.

Back here again.
Oh well, at least I am experienced and know what to do!

Obviously chelation has stressed me. Obviously I need adrenal and thyroid support in order to chelate. And obviously chelation will have to take a back seat until that’s in place.

Anyway, today I went back to the muscle tester lady again. She tested all my supplements, specifically the adrenal support (ACE) that reacted badly with my heart last year…and good news; it tested fine. I restart the adrenal support with ACE in the morning!!
She also confirmed my liver is still troubled and gave some different liver herbs. And she also confirmed the current crisis is probably, looks most likely, to be an Adrenal Crash.
Great. Just what I need. Ho hum.

But, at least I didn’t do two rounds, or three rounds, or increase my chelator dose, or do a liver flush or anything drastic like that. I do in fact feel better just knowing what the problem is. Knowing it’s adrenals, knowing which adrenal support to take…all makes the problems manageable. I now have a new plan and priority: Adrenal support first using ACE and B-complex. When the Adrenals are supported, as shown by a level set of temperatures, then it will be time to embark on thyroid support. But first things first: Adrenal support here we come. From past experience it will probably take two to three months for the adrenal glands to kick back on-line. Maybe it could be quicker? Please! LOL

And, I gotta ask myself the serious and very personal question of: why and how? Why and how did I let myself get like this? Again! Especially a man of my experience! Well if I’m honest with myself it’s because of the heart thing I had last year. I let myself believe I just (ha!) had a heart issue. I let myself believe what my doc’s told me. That it was just a heart problem.

It was a heart issue, but it was also an adrenal and thyroid issue too. I was addressing them, with the usual supplements, but the heart problem was a BIGGER problem and that needed sorting first. In fact the adrenal and thyroid support made the heart worse, so I had to stop them all. I have some tricky months ahead of me as I figure out what supplements I can take that don’t mess with the heart. Hmmmmm. Not something I’m looking forward to.

Anyway, that’s where I’m at right now. Problems, problems, and they all need sorting out. It is amazing just how much crap I have to put up with and go through! Bloody mercury. I hope in my next life I do something calmer!

As usual when things hit fans I get myself some TLC: I had a massage last night. That was nice. Warmed me up. I have a healing session with my lovely healing lady this evening too. She is awesome and I look forward to her hands-on energy. Money well spent seeing her.

That’s all, sorry it’s bad news, sorry I’m having a moan, but life’s a bitch sometimes.
Such is life for the mercury toxic.


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!

Live The Dream

IMG_01411988: Twenty five years ago I was 18 years old. Picture this: I wore white plimsolls, blue drainpipe jeans, a white T-shirt, a purple waist coat and a denim jacket littered with badges of daggers, skulls and the names of my favourite rock stars: AC/DC, Iron Maiden and Metallica. I had blond hair to my shoulders and an earring. I had a dream: I wanted to be a rock star. Heavy metal was my thang. I loved it. I lived it. I had all the albums. And I looked great!

I decided I was gonna play lead guitar. Yeah, cool baby! But in order to do that I need to 1) purchase a guitar and 2) learn to play said guitar.

I had no money, so I got a job down the local sports club behind the bar pulling pints. I also got a job as a porter at the local department store: BHS. Cash is king!

I worked hard and saved every penny until finally I had enough. Hooray! I rushed into the guitar shop and with massive excitement bought the above pictured Axe! Perfect! The same shape as the lead singer of AC/DC, Angus Young. I also got myself a 100watt amp to power my way into fame with mega decibels of sound.

My parents were overjoyed. Not.

However my dream did not come to pass. I failed miserably to learn how to actually play the damn thing. Sure I could make mega-loud-thrashing-sounds that echoed around the entire neighbourhood. I had great fun doing that, but I never bothered to have any lessons, not even one to get me going.
I was not a natural.
The self teach books failed me.
I was rubbish.

After a while reality kicked in, I realised I was not gonna be a rock star, and I got a job in the city and stored my guitar in the loft.


Six years ago life as I know it collapsed. Mercury poisoning kicked me firmly in the balls, my health crumbled and my future looked bleak. In amongst all my troubles and battles to reclaim my life I longed quit the city job, retire and go live somewhere calm and hassle free.

Sadly a massive lack of funds stopped this dream. Oh yes, we all gotta earn our bread somehow and no way did I, nor do I, have enough to retire on in my thirty’s or forty’s. But with my health so poor, with so much time dedicated to looking after myself, to educating myself, I had little time to do the fun things in life. Most of them I was not physically well enough to do anyway, other things I had not the time, nor the energy.

But one day I will retire from the city job, and one day I will do all the things I missed due to my ill health and lack of time and energy. So I started a list. I kept a list of all the cool and funky things I would do when I finally jacked the job, reclaimed my health and had the time and energy to pursue my dreams! Cool! And here they are, in no particular order:

Do an intensive yoga course somewhere hot: Crete? India?
Buy a boat and learn how to sail.
Study herbal medicine at college.
Study personal finance.
Learn to play golf.
Learn how to draw. (I was very good as a kid: straight A’s in art!)
Do Vipassanan 10 day meditation course.
Build my own kit car.
Go inter-railing around Europe, retracing the steps of when I was a teenager.
Learn to play my guitar.

Yes, the same guitar that has sat in my loft all these twenty five years.
After a while the list started to really annoy me. $hit, all the things I missed doing! All the things I couldn’t do. All the things deprived of me. All the things I wanted to do but could not. It made me sad, depressed and annoyed. It bothered and frustrated me.

But one day the realisation dawned on me. I smacked my forehead and said “Doh!” as the lightening strike of wisdom struck me right between the eyes. I realised I didn’t have to wait 15-20 years to do these things. What a dick I was being! What a massive and total dick!

I didn’t have to wait.
I didn’t have to wait.
I didn’t have to wait.
I could, if I chose, do some of those things now!
I could live the dream if I really wanted to.

I was still busy with life. My job, my family and I wrote my book too which took bloody ages. Everything took up loads of time, but I realised I could fit in other things too, if I chose. I have a couple of hours free time most evenings!

That twang of insight, that change in how I thought; that happened about 2 years ago. First thing I did, I started up learning to play golf. I like golf. I just need the time to have lessons. I am not a natural! LOL. That was cool, but then I got a bit sick last year and golf is on hold because I am not physically capable to all that practice and all that 3-4 hours walking aboout. Ce pas possible!


IMG_0011I think it would be really cool if my son Felix played the guitar. What a proud Dad that would make me! He’s only 4.5, but he’s keen, so I bought him a little ukulele for Christmas. He liked it, but he didn’t really grab it, grasp it, get it. I asked the wife:

“What can I do to get him excited about the guitar? It would be awesome if he chose the guitar as his instrument to learn and play at school. How can I help? What can I do?”

“That’s easy,” she said quick-as-a-flash, “get your guitar down and play it together.”

I love my wife. She is good at her job!

So that’s what I did. I got my lovely guitar down from the loft. She is still as good as new, even after 25 years up there. I dusted her down, tuned her up and fired her away and got my little chap involved too.

And it worked a treat. I still can’t play it and he is not a natural either! But he is interested and that’s key!

But another switch flicked in my brain after that. This was last Tuesday. I had been mucking about on the guitar for about an hour. My fingers were burning. I yearned to play the thing, even one song would be nice. Nursery rhymes to get my kid involved would be perfect. Suddenly I realised I could play the thing if I put my mind to it. I could get a few lessons. I could buy another self-teach book. I could if I tried, if I wanted, if I made the effort.

It was like a switch in my head being flicked.
I can live the dream if I so choose.

And so can you.
All those dreams you have.

You can live your dream if you choose. I know mercury makes life a misery but you can do some of your goals if you put your mind to it. Don’t let the mercury bugger everything up. I am sure you can find the time. It’s all a matter of flicking that switch in your head from ‘Pause’ to ‘Go.’

I promise you it feels absolutely wonderful to live the dream.

That’s all folks!

Ps. Typed this up at 37,000ft on a flight to Dubai!!

Pps. Started the 2nd round of the Liver herbs on Monday. Reduced to half dose because I am on a business trip. Need to minimise any hassles whilst travelling. (Edit now I’m back from Dubai and back on a full dose: Nothing exciting to report yet except I have a headache that will not shift no matter how much water I drink. The same headache as when I take too much Milk Thistle. Means my liver is detoxing. Anyway, I’ve only had one day of headache, and it’s not a blinder. I will reduce the herbs to half in the morning if i awake with the headache.)

Ppps. Since the four day juice fast finished I have regained the 2kg I lost, but also put on another 1kg. Hooray! That is good news. I’m skinny and extra weight is a good thang.

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 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 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.
