So, what’s next you ask? What will I do next to help myself?

Will it be a bowel cleanse? Or maybe a parasite cleanse? Or liver herbs to go with the castor oil packs? Or kidney cleanse? Or lungs? Or pro-biotics? Or chelation? Or a break? Or Reiki? Or a combination?

Well, I have been doing various different herbal combinations all year so it’s time for a break. Just a week or two. Time to give my body a rest from detoxing and give it a little bit of love instead.

I went to see Roma the Reiki Lady down the road. She told me she has been really sick. She had a brain haemorrhage earlier in the year. Nasty. But better now and giving out Reiki again.

Always makes me wonder that. Healing people getting sick. Doesn’t seem right. Surely the people who help us should be healthy? Just like Andreas Moritz dying at the incredibly young age of 58. I mean, how can he die? What did he die of? I learnt so much from him. His books stunning. His knowledge of how our bodies work amazing. Just amazing. He was a wizard (ha!) at explaining things! And he died aged 58? What does that say about his healing skills? No idea, but it’s not a good advertisement for alternative health.

But then again, what do I know? I don’t know anything at all about his situation. Maybe he should have died aged 12 and had all this extra life? Who knows? But, I do think it odd when healers get sick. Anyone know how Andreas Moritz died?

Anyway, I’m getting sidetracked. Roma the reiki lady. I have myself done the Reiki I and Reiki II training a couple of years ago, but I have been off-games with the Reiki this year. It didn’t agree with my heart problems. Just didn’t feel right. Made my heart race out of control: horrid. Felt like driving too fast on a cliff edge road. Scary. I know it was my heart, not the reiki that was broken, so that’s why I just stopped it. It just didn’t agree.

But my heart is fine now, so time to rekindle the reiki. But rather than self practice, I thought I get a professional to do it, to make sure I get back on the wagon correctly.

I lay down, covered in a blanket. Close eyes. Follow my breathing down to a relaxed level. Roma hovers her hands a few inches above my head. I immediately feel the energy on my skull. Oh yeah, I physically feel the energy when I experience it. Feels like a pressure on my head. The more energy, the more pressure, but this is gentle.

I try hard to stay awake as long as possible. I follow my breathing. I experience the energy. I look in to the blackness of my closed eye vision to see if I can see any colours? But nope, no colours showing yet. I usually only get the colours showing when the energy is strong.

My eyes are closed, but I know the reiki treatment will be all over my body, so I try to guess over where her hands are hovering? But feels like my head is getting most of the treatment. The pressure is fairly constant around my head. Eventually a few colours start swirling in font of my eyes, but I am losing the battle to stay awake.

“Danny. Danny. Danny. It’s finished.”

“Oh, was I asleep?”

“Oh yes”

“Ummm. Nice.”

“Take you time, get up slow.”

I awake relaxed, calm and warm.

“I felt the energy mostly on my head for the whole time.”

“For me it was the other way around. I could not feel your head at all, but I did everywhere else. Especially your throat and stomach. I did a normal full body healing.”

“Odd, I only felt it on my head. Felt like the energy was blocked. It did not flow around my body like it usually does. No idea what it means. Do you?”

“Nope. Every session is unique.”

I always enjoy the reiki. Always fun. No real fireworks this time, but that’s ok. It’s good to do. Good to give my body some love after all the detoxing I do.

I am booked in for two reiki sessions in the coming weeks.

That’s all folks!

Mile high!

I am on a British Airways flight to Mumbai. My in-flight 3D map tells me I am currently flying over the Caspian Sea, some place called Baku. It’s a four day trip. Two days business. Two days travelling. I’m bored sitting here. So I thought I’d type a mile high blog entry.

I have been busy this week. Lots of things going on and no time for castor oil packs in the evenings. I have been feeling a little ropey again. Only a little, I still feel better overall, but some gains from the castor oil packs have reduced. A little bit of nausea has crept back. Why’s that?

I think it’s because the castor oil packs, or lack of I should say. When you detox using the castor oil packs they only detox the gallbladder a little bit. What I mean is; they only detox the bottom part of it. Or maybe say; only a little bit of crud comes out. It is still full of gunk and gallstones in the top part. After a few days the gunk settles and things get re-blocked up. Less gunked, but still gunked.

Yes, exactly: that’s why you have to keep doing them. It’s a weekly job. Three-in-three days weekly will keep detoxing the gallbladder.  Castor oil packs are a gentle detox and they require weekly commitment to your getting better. They are a civilised way to detox, but it is slow and takes time. That’s alright, I have plenty of time.

What else is going on?

I think I said it before, but my diet is reduced down to Defcon ‘strict’, rather than Defcon ‘ultra strict’. Back on a little fruit and carbs, except wheat.

Oh yes, Humaworm Candida is paused/stopped for my Mumbai trip. Not good to travel and try to do business in strange places doing herbs. I need to be in peak condition when travelling. I have done 28 days out of 30, so I think that will probably be it and I will stop here. I still have half the pills left because I was on a reduced dose for the first 3 weeks. I will freeze them to keep them fresh and save them for another time.

So, what’s next you ask?

Will it be a bowel cleanse? Or maybe a parasite cleanse? Or liver herbs to go with the castor oil packs? Or kidney cleanse? Or lungs? Or pro-biotics? Or chelation? Or a break? Or Reiki? Or a combination?

Castor Oil Packs – Ding Ding, Round II – Major success!

Ok Castor oil packs. These are done over my gallbladder to help heal and unclog it. Last weekend I completed my second set of three-in-three days. After the third I drank some olive oil then went to bed.

In the morning I passed a load of yellowy bile in my BM. Always a good sign. That is the signal that the castor oil pack worked. It means my gallbladder had a mini flush and unclogged some gunk. But it is only a mini flush, so they need repeating. I consider castor oil packs to be a very civilised way of detoxing. I have only ever felt good during and after them. So much more civilised that those hardcore ‘liver flushes’.

So, results? What’s happened since then?

Well, the nausea I have had daily for the last 11 months has gone. Rock ‘n’ roll!

The jitteriness I have had for 11 months has greatly reduced. Happy dayz!

The uncomfortable feeling of ill-health has lifted too. Nice!

Today I feel normal. Normality has returned. My health is not constantly keeping me on edge. I feel more relaxed and calm. Steady. And I must say I am pretty happy about all this. It’s about time I had a break through! It has been a tough and difficult year. As a rough guide I would say I am about 20 percent better than I was before the packs…so yeah, as I said: all pretty cool and happy.

I’m not out of the wood yet. The liver and gallbladder still need a lot of work on them. I will continue with the castor oil packs weekly and will soon start some liver herbs too.

I have been doing the Humaworm Candida herbs for the last three and a half weeks. I have had to keep the dosage at between ¼ and ½ dosage due to the horrid side effects kicking my arse. Since I completed the 2nd set of castor oil packs I have felt fine and ramped the herbs dose up to full power….and I feel fine, no side effects at all. Those castor oil packs have certainly hit the nail on the head for me right now!

Happy dayz!

What else is going on here? I had a massage on Monday night from my friend Anna. Thank you!! Tuesday night I had a one hour reiki session from my local reiki master Roma the Healing Lady. Felt like the right thing to do. Give my body some love. I have booked up two more appointments in the next two weeks. Good to get some energy surging round my system.

I have relaxed my diet now. I am now eating all veggies. (I was avoiding carrots and beets and anything with lots of sugar like parsnips). Also eating potatoes, and raw cheese. Only thing I am still avoiding is wheat. I will keep that off the menu for a while. All other junk and rubbish is long gone off my menu.

I am still doing the Transformational Breathing every morning for 10 minutes, still meditating for 45 minutes every morning too. And the bowel cleaning herbs as well.

Tomorrow I have large lunch appointment with all my top clients and booze will be unavoidable. I have been off the drink for 3 months, so I guess we will see if I can handle it! Don’t worry, I will be taking it very easy. I have to because I’m off to India on Saturday. Two day business trip to Mumbai. In, out, shake it all about. That will be fun, but knackering.

Yes. Yes that’s right. Yes I do do a lot of different things don’t I. My health waits for no one. I have tried sitting on my arse doing nothing. But for me, for the mercury toxic, that does not work. Action is required! I just keep cycling through all the different healing methods I know of. Everything helps in its own special way, and sometimes you get a major boost like I have just done with the castor oil packs.

Take care

Saw a Doctor this week.

Last Tuesday I had a medical. My company pays for it. To make sure I am healthy. My annual check-up. I don’t like doctors. I don’t like what the doctors tell me. They never seem to get it right. Their questions and answers seem so basic. Designed for ignorant people who don’t know anything about health, and don’t know that doctors can be wrong.

I nearly lost my temper this time. Nearly, I had a little slip, but I managed to clamped shut my mouth instead and held it back like a pro. Dumb Doc. Everything came out ‘in range’, as usual, except I had blood in my urine. You know what she said about that?

“Test must be wrong. You should have done it mid-stream. Go to your GP and get it done again properly.”

Lol. Crazy docs. So lazy. So so lazy!

“Well Sunshine, I’ve given you a thorough checkin’ over and you are in great shape. Great shape. Well done.”

“But what about the getting up every night to piss? That’s not right.”

“Probably just a bladder infection.”

“But it’s been nine months at least?”

“You probably just have a weak bladder…”


“You probably just have a weak bladder…”



“’Twas nice to see you.”

“No problem”

“And thanks for checking my prostate”

“My pleasure. Your prostate is fine.”

“Thank you, but what about the tiredness? The weariness? The lack of energy?”

“Everything is fine. You are in good health for a man of your age.”

“Are you deaf?

“Everything is fine. You are in good health for a man of your age.”

I gave up after that. There is no point in fighting the system. Little old me can’t change anything. I got better things to do than argue with people who think they know everything. Best to quietly move on, not get in their way. I am in charge of my health.

I will await the blood tests with interest. Muscle tester dude said my gallbladder was all congested and buggered. I wonder if that will show itself, or if I will be as ever ‘in range’?

I don’t let it get me down any more. I’m way past that. I just try and use what I can from the little I get.

Some actual good news: I don’t have haemorrhoids. I don’t have bum cancer. Heart was fine too. And the mega good news: my blood pressure was bang on perfecto! 120/70. That’s how I roll! Winning!

That’s all folks!

Castor Oil Packs: I love it when a plan comes together!

Muscle Tester Dude found my gallbladder stressed so I decided to do some castor oil packs. The deal is this: you soak three flannels in a bottle of castor oil. Enough to make the flannels wet, but not drippy wet. You apply the soaked flannels, called a pack, to the area in need of help. In this case my gallbladder, which is a hands width beneath my right nipple. The pack is applied flat and is sealed in place with cling film. It gets a good wrapping because you don’t want that castor oil getting smeared all around your house, furniture and clothes. Next you apply a hot water bottle to the area, wrap yourself in a towel, and sit down on the sofa in front of the TV and watch whatever.

The heat warms everything up and you get a warm fuzzy glow. The castor oil heats up and goes into your body and works its healing magic. After about one to one and a half hours you take the pack off. The time to take the pack off is when you first feel a twinge of detox, or the first fluttery sensation of oddness. Yes, you will feel it. Yes, it is subtle. Afterwards wash the area in warm water with some bicarb soda. The bicarb soda lifts any toxins that have transferred out of the gallbladder and that may be lodged in the skin. The wash is important. If you don’t use the bicarb soda you may get an itchy rash that will not go away until you wash with the bicarb soda. You have been warned!

I guess it sounds a bit fantastical, but it’s just another example of the holistic healthcare that you can do yourself from the comfort of your own armchair. Castor oil has long history of healing. Any internet search will provide plenty more details, or if you want to get really involved, you can read ‘Oil that heals’ by William A. Mcgarey.  Odd book, but nevertheless tells you all about castor oil, its history and its healing capabilities.

Well, the deal for healing gallbladders is to do three packs, over the gallbladder, in three days. After the third, on the third day, you drink a good glug of olive oil. I measure it by filling my half pint glass to one fingers worth of olive oil. I guess that’s three-ish table spoons of olive oil. Then go to bed. This is supposed to help clean and cleanse the gallbladder and liver.

But the proof, as ever, is in the pudding. Does it actually work? That’s were I come in.

Last night I did my third in three days and then forced down the olive oil. It always makes me judder. Always makes me shake my head, stretch my jaw and shudder. Drinking neat olive oil is kinda gag inducing, but its temporary and no big deal.

Last night I muscle tested the oil before I drank it and my body gave a super strong and positive signal. Very encouraging! I glugged it down, I juddered, I went to bed.

I slept well. In fact I slept right through to my alarm. Odd, I usually have to get up at 3am and have a pee. That’s a good thing.

Normally my mornings are a bit dodgy. I have 5-10 minutes where I just sit on the bog and hold my hands over face and try to grab hold of my life. I breathe deep, sigh, groan and feel generally frazzled and unrested from sleep. It’s no big deal. No one is around. No one can see. But I notice it. I know it’s not normal. I have tried, but every morning I sit there holding my face, all scrunched up, my body silently screaming to get some unknown horridness out of my body. I can’t stop it. It must be some toxin lurkin’ in me. Why else would I feel so frazzled? Odd eh! Some detoxing must go on whilst I am asleep, but is unable to exit.

This morning, after the third castor oil pack, everything was normal. I sat on the loo, did my business, finished, then went to do my morning meditation. I had a huge smile on my face too, because the horrid, scrunched, frazzled, torn feeling was absent. Happy dayz! I love it when a plan comes together. Must be the castor oil pack. Must be. I don’t believe in coincidences. That’s a good signal that the castor oil pack has help detox me some. It is very important to listen to your body. I have been feeling light and free all day.

For most of this year I have also had this morning nausea that lasts until about 11am. It varies in intensity, but it is always there. Breakfast is kinda forced: I need to food, but the nausea takes away the pleasure. This morning the nausea was gone:-)

I love it when a plan comes together.

I will be doing more of these castor oil packs. You need to do them in campaigns. Three on their own, in isolation, are not enough. I will do them weekly from now on.

For the record I am : Meditating, transformational Breathing, Bowel cleaning with herbs, candida killing with herbs, and doing castor oil packs. The Candida herbs are at half dose, they continue to give me tingly and annoying die-off.

That’s all folks!

TB, Humaworm, Candida, Castor oil packs…but still no chelation.

Ok. Transformational Breathing (TB). What’s been happening? I had been doing the ten minutes practice each day before my morning meditation, but I got bored with it. So I moved on, and moved up;-) I skipped the meditation and just did 45 minutes TB. Ha! Now that’s more like it! Loads of funky vibrations when I do it for 45 minutes. That’s way more fun! Really oxygenates my body, and yeah, my body really likes that.

Last Friday I had a one-2-one session with The Transformational Breather Dude. What a nice man he is. Alan Dolan. Full of energy he is. And I mean energy, as in tingly, buzzy, spiritual and exciting energy. One of them people you instantly warm too. So relaxed. Calm.

I wonder what he sees when he sees me? Some stressed-out, middle-aged city chap no doubt. And that’s what I am. Stressed with my ill-health. It has been a major drag this year. I’m on the mend, but it takes time. Each set of herbs hurts. Each set of herbs takes its allotted time. Each set of herbs cannot be rushed. Bowel, parasite, candida, liver, kidney, lung. I have no doubt that if I could fast forward 6-8 months from now that I’d find myself looking back smugly and basking in my good health. I hope so anyway. Bowels done. Parasites done. Candida done and doing again. Diet doing. Liver and gallbladder and kidneys to do. And they are gonna hurt.

Anyway, I’m getting side tracked, the TBreathing. 730pm Friday night after work. No time to go home beforehand, so I have dinner at my local Italian, Fabrizzio’s. And as usual I cut it too fine, get stuck in traffic and arrived 10 minutes late. Typical me.

We meet at a new yoga place I’ve never heard of called Indaba, just behind Marylebone Station off Euston road. Lovely place. Posh. Brand new. And all warm and homely. Smelled nice. Smelled of happy people. Wish I had a place like this close to my house or office. Wish I was well enough to yoga.

Alan lies me down and explains I will just be breathing the special breath. Innnnnnn-breath and a quick dropped out-breath. No pauses. Each in and out-breath connected. Repeat. Repeat for about one hour. Simple. He will guide me, direct me to breathe correctly and use the breath to free up and open the parts of my body that are stuck. That’s the plan anyway.

I’m used to the breathing technique so I slip into the rhythm within seconds. Alan prods me with his thumbs all around my body. Sometimes it hurts, sometimes I shout out in surprise, sometimes it tickles and makes me laugh out loud. It is quite intense and occasionally my breath kicks in to overdrive and Alan has to remind me to calm the breath down. Less is more. Not good to hyperventilate. Throughout the hour Alan moves me about. Sometimes I’m sitting up, sometimes on my front with him prodding all over my back.

The intensity grows throughout the session and in the last five minutes the energy powers into overdrive in my hands. I love it when that happens. To feel the energy flowing like a wild-thing is wonderful, just a wonderful experience. My hands felt so heavy and full with power and buzzing with energy. I put them over my gallbladder to give them some healing energy.

Pity it only kicked in right at the end and I only had five minutes like that. Alan called me up and gave me a review: I’m good at breathing, good at getting the flow going, but I get over-keen, over-excited and breathe too quick. I need to hold the breath in check.

He said I need to calm down.


Find time to be on my own, to be myself.

And these were not breathing techniques…these were life lessons.


That’s why I meditate daily. It is a calm start to my perpetually busy days in the office.

Excuses, excuses…but the herbs must take their own good time. It’s not a question of ‘chilling out’. It’s a question of doing the herbs to detox my whole body. But I must finish these candida herbs first. Today is day 16. I have not got over half dosage yet.

Overall TB was another cool ‘n’ funky experience. A little expensive. 100 quid. Not cheap. Felt rough the next morning too as had some detoxing going on. Lots of water helped. But overall a fun incident along my journey. Something different. Nice to change things around a bit. Breaks the morning meditation routine up nicely. Would I do it again? Another 100 quid? Ummm…probably yes, but not next week. It is an interesting thing to do. Some people have gotten super better from doing it. I read the book by the discoverer. “The joys of Transformational Breathing” By Judith Kravitz. I always research everything I do. Interesting stuff. I find it amazing that such a simple change in focus in breathing can bring on such strong reactions.

I admit I am stressed at the moment. My health stresses me. It’s been an annus horribilis. And I’m in the middle of the Humaworm Candida herbs and they make life difficult. I only turned the corner in August. So that’s August, September, October, 13th November. Three and a half months since the BIG turnaround. And after the two steps forward, I have had a one step back. Ho hum.

Overall I am moving in the right direction, it is a little frustrating that each set of herbs takes so long. I am impatient to start the liver herbs now. The muscle tester Dude said my gallbladder is my biggest problem at the moment. So for that I need liver herbs, but I must first finish these candida herbs.

Because of my impatience I am doing castor oil packs over my gallbladder. Three days in a row, about an hour each, then after the third on the third day, I drink a good lug of olive oil and go to bed. It’s worked in the past. Very effective at cleaning the liver and gallbladder. A very civilised way to detox. Tonight is the third night.

Oh yeah, I have been doing these special diets for 6 weeks. No sugar and no carbs except brown rice. I have not really noticed anything too different, except I have lost 3kg’s, down to 69kg and that’s enough. I don’t like losing too much weight. I will gradually reintroduce some foods now. Lentils, potatoes and maybe some fruit to see what happens. I think I will keep wheat off my menu for a while longer.

That’s all folks!

Anti-Candida herbs update

After a rough 7 days from the Humaworm anti-Candida herbs I seem to be coming out the other-side. Today was a mostly normal day and I am grateful life is on the up again. Die-off, jittery, tingly grippy has mostly relaxed. These herbs usually kick my butt and this time is no exception. I am currently on half dose and think I will try ¾ dose tomorrow.

Talking of tomorrow, Friday evening I have an appointment with the Transformational Breather Dude. This guy should help open up and let my lungs breathe super-deep, oxygenating my body to the MAX! I look forward to that, the first session was pretty wild. This time I’m going back for some one-2-one action. He promise to take me “really deep” – whatever that means!

Muscle Tester Dude

Day 13 of the Anti-candida herbs from Humaworm. It’s been a tough 3 days with mega die-off hitting hard. I reduced to ¼ dose for a couple of days while weathering the Sandy-like storm. Today I am back up to ½ dose and things are manageable again. I even had a few spells of feeling ‘ok’ when the die-off receded into the background. But still, it is making life difficult. I am drink 3 litres of water a day to help easy the pain. I hope it’s all worth it!

Exciting news: the Muscle Tester Dude is in town. He has helped me greatly over the years, but he moved to Oz a couple of years back so I only see him once or twice a year now. I complained of nausea in the mornings with a mega-furry tongue, lack of energy, weakness, tiredness, and a feeling that the food I’m eating is not being absorbed.

With his muscle testing he found I am greatly deficient in calcium and that’s affecting my bones. I need to increase my dose from one capsule to four caps a day for one month. Then reduce down to two per day after that.

He found I was deficient in Vitamin D3 and proscribed six caps a day of D3 for 3 months. Need to power in the sunshine;-) He also said to try a UVB lamp. He said it was the equivalent to having a sunny holiday on a beach. Should make me feel fine. Not heard about this before, so I will research this some before I dive in.

He also found the Gallbladder weak too and that’s probably the origin of my nausea. Interesting! Milk thistle will help, ditto D3, ditto Calcium. Also means I really need to do some liver herbs too.

This all ties-in with digestive problems causing me hell, causing me to not digest and up-take my food properly, which in turn causes these deficiencies.

As ever, Muscle Tester Dude is The Man!

Candida Blitz

I am in the midst of a major Candida blitz. I have a three-pronged attack strategy in force.

Phase 1: Starvation
I have switched 10 days ago to the anti-candida diet on and the diet-off continues. Life is ok, but I have been better. This diet excluded all grains and all sugars including fruit, although brown rice is allowed. It is more annoying than difficult to do.

The diet is designed to starve the candida, bacteria and yeasts to death. If they have no food – they should die. That’s the theory anyway.

Phase 2: Killing the buggers!
Next up is the Killing Fields. For annihilation of my unwanted guests I am again calling in Humaworm. This time their 30 day Candida herbs. It contains: thyme, garlic, fennel, black walnut, pau d’ arco, burdock and barberry.

This usually works, but it is usually extremely hard on me. The die-off and side-effects usually kick in hard and I am forced to lower the dose. I started the herbs nine days ago. I started on half dose. Then after 3 days moved to ¾ dose. Then a couple of days at full dose, before reducing to half dose again.

And yes, you guessed it; the die-off side-effects are kicking-in and are pretty annoying. Tingley. Tired. Weary. Hands keep gripping. Itchy. So I have eased off on the dosage to relax the side-effects down. It’s nothing wildly bad, about a 5 on the Richter scale of 1-10, but life is frustrating at the moment. I am as usual working a normal weeks in the office. No one notices anything untoward.

On a positive note I did feel better earlier this week. I was hungry and lively. Strangely my vision is clearer for some reason. No idea why. On Thursday I felt so good I even fancied a beer. And I mean a REALLY fancied a lovely freshly pulled pint of ale!! I know I am feeling fine when I get the urge for a beer.

But the beer is what brought the candida back last time, so beer is off my menu.

Phase 3: Waste removal.
To try and forcibly move the buggers on I did a week of P&B shakes. The P is pysllium. It’s just a herb that’s swells up in contact with water and physically sweeps out anything lurking in my gizzards. The B is Bentonite clay. This stuff sucks up, grips and holds on to any nasties and hopefully escorts them out.  I did the P&B shakes for 7 days and have stopped now. Side effects from the candida herbs mean I must relax away from the clay. Maybe do another week at the end of the 30 days HW herbs?

So yeah, that’s the plan. My three-pronged attack:

Starve them. Kill them. Forcibly move them on.

Why do this 3-way attack? Because last time I did the HW Candida herbs a couple of months ago they worked great. Really super-fantastico GREAT. A giant leap in my health. But I didn’t do the diet, and the good health did not last long. I had a business trip. I drank quite a lot of beers. Why not? I felt great! But the candida returned. And it didn’t go away. So this time the diet should hopefully stop any re-growth once the herbs have killed the buggers.

That’s the plan, and I like a good plan batman.

I am also having some success with something called Transformational Breathing. It’s a breathing technique that is supposed to transform you. It’s pretty funky. I’m doing it 45 minutes each morning and it seems to be helping some.

That’s all folks!
