Thanks so much for your input. Alison i have read your email 5 times...still takin notes!! I hope that you knock the socks off the Lyme with that Protocol!!
Well, i am feeling a little discouraged...BUT....god kept telling me to fast...it was comming to me in songs and dreams and through random people...so i'm going for it. Today is my 20th day, it's been easy...my energy is about the same...but my head space is amazing and i am not fighting my food allergies anymore...before it seemed like everything i ate i felt in my arms and head and anger feelings would overtake me often. I have been free of that and the break is great as i re-group my plan for life. I am also in the process through fasting of overcomming some bad food choices...that i was addicted to. My hope is that this fast is long enough to gain strength in that area...and visualize the foods i will eat.
My plan is to break the fast slowly..then eat an all natural diet of nutts seeds sprouts and veggies and fruits..with raw eggs...goat cheese...organic chicken and fish...basmati rice...quinoa...and no gluten.
No processed foods or chemicals...which is easy because i've been playing in that world for many years now...but i always crept back to Processed Crap food. I cannot do that anymore as my body does not accept any of that without extreme illness taking me over. I have the food thing bad as one of my Lyme symptoms. It sucks.
There is something to be said for my Knees. About 4 years ago i was crippled overnight in my knees..both simultaniousely..and that lasted about 3.5 years. Since beginning different healing methods i am happy to say....my knees..which i thought would never work again....well...i am able to squat now and they never hurt anymore..there still weak...but the pain is gone.So that gives me hope.
I will keep posted about my journey on the MC. I understand about the body's system being so weak from the war going on inside...and i know that we need alot of protein and dense nutrition....i am just hoping that i can scrub clean and start over....i definately don't feel worse...
I'm also not on the cleanse to lose weight however...when i first got Lyme almost 7 years ago....i gained 50 lbs in about 4 months...and i had not changed my lifestyle so it made no sense why that was happening to me. I blamed it on falling in love with my current fiance...and thought that it was fear of giving my heart...blah blah blah...anyway....i now believe that it was Lyme. I've heard of many many people gaining weight. So, i have lost 28 lbs on this cleanse so far....and have to say i feel very good about that. My body feels better..
I hope that i am doing the right thing...intuitively for me fasting makes sense...and so too does rebuilding with proper strengthening foods. Somewhere in my head there is a belief that the food i eat and my state of mind has everything to do with Lyme staying or going. Since there is no known cure...the possibilities are endless if the belief is strong enough....i'll let you know if that works for me!!
Much thanks for reading my post, much thanks for feedback and sharing your experiences with me!!
