Re: pain, pain, pain!!
Kim, I never got around to trying Dr Natura ... I tried fiber cleansers, they didn't work for me ... I tried oxygen cleansing, it worked as far as cleansing, but did NOTHING for rebuilding my digestive system. I read Dr Christopher's newsletter on colon health and read about his formula and just about immediately found the Ask Barefoot forum here ... MH makes Dr Christopher's formula more like the Dr Christopher than the company that is making his formulas today, so I went with that and have been on it for over a year now. My colon health is better today than ever in my life.
Probiotics are friendly bacteria that one gets from organic fruits and vegetables and grows in the digestive tract if one gives them the opportunity. I've never taken a single probiotic pill and I've gone from not digesting anything I ate to RARELY ever not digesting something I eat.
MH/barefoot had me go on a diet that I finally got over 50% raw fruit by explaining to me that fruit is the easiest food for the body to digest and he's right. I get my energy and my feelgood from fruit. I'm studying raw nutrition presently and have progressed enough in my healing that I've added greens, unsweet fruits and nuts to my diet and do fine as long as I don't allow cheating to overtake me! (Old habits die hard). Here's an example: it's halloween ... work threw us a party .. ice cream, cupcakes, candy (hello, my name is marilyn and I'm a chocoholic)!! Heck yeah, I had some of all of it!!!! At time to leave work tonight, I could not go get in the car and drive home ... my car wasn't in the ladies room!!!!!!!! Foods labeled mucus-forming make me poop mucus shortly after eating them now. My body doesn't want that garbage in there!!!! I'm not sick, no cramping or anything like that ... my body just purges it!!!!!
Let us know how you're doing and what helps you in particular as we all get through this together, ok?
