I've been doing Gerson therapy and IF1 and 2, for the past couple months (only using IF2 one or two times/day, maybe 5 days at a time, then a few days off, and then on again). I also take Dr Christopher's lower bowel balance. With Gerson, I have about 8-10 diluted juices/day and one coffee enema in the evening. I also have a Liver Flush drink each day of apple/lemon/garlic/oil..which is very tasty!
Probably the most noticable changes so far, are:
1. My digestion is way improved...I mean, WAY improved. Before the amount of upper abdominal bloating was so bad, even with a clean diet. I didn't digest raw vegetables at all, and almost everything sat in my stomach for hours. The only thing that never gave me trouble was fruit.
I had a constant feeling of heaviness in my stomach too, even when it was empty. This is all so much improved now. There were days where I slipped off my program and ate poorly and that's also where I noticed how things have improved. Before I would have been sick all night from eating processed food, now it was okay...not that I want to keep that up though...that's how I got myself into the mess I'm in now!
2. I feel better in general, not all better, but better than when I started.
3. I can eat all the garlic I can stand now. Before I could hardly have any for the stomach pain, that's cleared (mostly) now, and I can load it into food, no problem.
4. Before even a 10 minute brisk walk would make me nauseous. I felt so ill to begin with, and doing anything that was health forming would make me feel even worse. Sometimes just doing stretches would spark a panic attack. Now I can do a brisk walk for 45 minutes! no nausea, no panic. I was sweating like crazy yesterday, which was a real event for me...that just didn't happen before, I couldn't even get myself to the point of getting warm without feeling sick. So, we'll see how things go once I get exercise as a regular part of the program....
So...things are better!
But being the impatient soul that I am...I've been feeling so low lately. Partly because I still feel physically unwell often, especially in the day. I'm riddled with parasites and they are a constant drain. I'm hoping that detoxifying my body will get them out...so far they are not gone. Although, I do have a sense that the burden maybe is less.
I've tried many times to eradicate them with herbs and it doesn't even touch them...it also leaves me feeling so sick I'm not even functional (constant panic attacks, heart palpations, nausea). I have a hard time not taking herbs against them because I want them out of me so much, but I try to just stick with the foundation first for a while and go from there. I think I probably need to release quite a bit of plaque before I can add in parasite herbs and feel okay on them. I'm hoping this is how it will go. I am getting rid of some plaque, but it's slow so far and only a little.
So..that's mostly where I'm at so far. I've had a resurgence of panic these last fews days too. Mostly at night....but I guess it's not so bad considering I used to have panic all the time. My pH is still very acidic in spite of all the juices and an alkaline diet, hopefully this will get better in time too.
I'll keep you all posted....take care everyone, and God bless...~megan
