This is what is so good about this forum....there are a range of opinions and that encourages thought!
You are actually talking to a sceptic here....... I do not believe everything I am told or read! My biggest bug bear is conventional medicine and our UK NHS which at the moment has a horrendously narrow minded approach to mirky health problems! There are pretty good if you are pregnant, have a heart attack, break a limb or have terminal cancer, but for allergies and a range of problems including fybromyalgia and ME they do not seem to have a clue.
My mother died a nasty and possibly unnecessary death sone 30 yrs ago, my father also suffered greatly from inadequacies of our NHS. I have had at least one operation that i did not need, a shoulder arthroscopy, and potentially my gall bladder removal was not a good idea either! Consequently I am a great believer in taking responsibility for ones own health, and in particular actively examining the conclusions made by conventional doctors and rejecting their diagnosis if it does not feel right!So I also have to apply the same level of sceptism to naturapathic approaches.
I have"allowed" my own intuition to develop and listen to my body. I study reiki and practice it on myself. I go to a naturapath for advice and Muscle testing for good and bad foods, and good and bad suppliments.I use this as a guide not as bible, because muscle testing is only a snapshot at that point in time and needs to be done very carefully. I now find that I have a very good idea what I need, and in particular what is not doing me any good! However I am going to visit my naturapath tomorrow to give me a check over to get her opinion on whether the Liver Flushing is taxing my organs too much, and whether I am gold sealed out!
Just to show you how sensitive I am......I have to avoid tap water. If I have to visit a Company which has a geiser for boiling water, that is a real killer for me. having said that..its not a serious reaction I just come up with an itchy rash on my arms and other places within 15 minutes.
My body is very loud! It tells me very clearly, if i listen, that it doesn't like something! Liver Flushing has proved interesting. The main benefit I find is that my feet do not hurt any more, and my IBS is much improved. I am looking to get rid of chronic low back pain and congestion in my lungs and sinus's.However I am much fitter than I was 2 years ago, when I hurt all over and could not keep food down!
Anyway, please keep the advice and ideas coming.....
