Thought I'd introduce myself (CA)

- Thought I'd introduce myself (CA) by gardeninginthefog
I've been frequenting curezone for about six months now, mostly as a lurker, but I post occasionally. I find this site amazing, informative, mid boggling and overwhelming. I’m married to a great guy who, in his willingness to humor me, agreed to go on the Candida diet to make his joints better—he only agreed to a week, but by day four he signed up for a month. He is now on Colosan and Three Lac and working his way into the second month of the diet. We’re located in San Francisco CA (which is why I am gardening in the fog), both in our 30’s, and have a really strong desire to get healthy before starting a family.
I’m working on taking care of gout, endometriosis, kidney related complaints, digestive disorders, and some gum problems. The hubby has digestive disorders, joint pain, and probably needs to overhaul his liver.
So far I’ve done a nine day master cleanse, P&B shakes, Coenzyme Q-10, liver flush, enemas, many different kidney cleansing teas, and started on some Dr. Shultze herbs, triphala, BodyPure footpads (wow do those things help!), detox baths, Watermelon baths, and a slew of other things.
I find there are so many layers of information (and all inter-related and important) that is a little overwhelming.
I get a little confused because there are so many regimes.
So far my biggest challenge has been nourishing my body enough so that it is supported and built up enough for the detoxification demands I am putting on it. That and remembering what to take/do when, so it won’t interfere with the other thing. (All while doing candida diet. Whew!)
I’m new to the bay area, and kind of isolated. Would love to get to know Curezonians, especially in the Bay Area, but anywhere else too. I’d also love advice from people who’ve been there on zappers, juicers, foot-baths, and naturopaths/herbalists/healers/midwives in the area.
Some things I am considering are:
*getting a zapper,
*a hydraulic juicer press of some sort (I have a champion that I can use as a grinder [for as long as it holds up, I bought it used and unfortunately it sounds as if it is barely alive]),
*oh, and maybe someday a foot-bath (since the pads work so amazingly and I’ve heard the baths are even better).
Thanks for reading my post,

Hi there, GardenerintheFog.
(I came back to edit - I didn't notice this thread was an older one. I hope Gardener is still here and doing well).
I like your name. I'm new too, just signed up today and I love flowers and working in the dirt.
I guess I could introduce myself here instead starting another thread. This is the largest site I've ever seen and I'm like you - there is so much information to take in it will probably take me a year to read it all!
I'm 49 and spent almost 20 years without medical insurance, which meant I lived without any health care. I also had tremendous depression and stress due to an unhappy first marriage. Anxiety attacks began at age 8 for no apparent reason.
When I remarried 7 years ago I was immediately diagnosed with breast cancer, had a mastectomy and chemo (cancer-free now 7 years).
Since then I've had one health problem after another: ruptured disk in lower back requiring surgery; I'm on medications for depression, panic/anxiety and a hiatal hernia. Last year my blood pressure went out of control and they gave me ANOTHER medicine. A few days ago I was diagnosed with 'low thyroid'. Today I started a medicine for that.
I'm tired of this. A good friend told me about this site and also about a holistic type doctor/nutritionist that she sees. I've got an appt with him on Friday. I hope there's some way I can get off these horrible medicines and get myself and my life under control. It seems like something else is constantly happening to me and I don't know why.
I don't mean to make this a long story (too late! haha....) but I have a lot of hope now that I am young enough still to turn my deteriorating health around.
I know I'll enjoy meeting you all.
