Kat, I chose to do this w/o giong to any Dr. I'm an hour and a half from H.A. haven't even gone there. I'm 20 mins from Andreas Moritz' Ener-Chi Clinic, thought about seeing him, but decided that any of this would give me confusion when it came to listening to what my body tells me is right and wrong and so far, so good.
I talk with MH here and Brenda on the phone, I communicate with Docta Dennis, I do what feels right only. On occasion, I'll try something just cuz one of them says so, but I'm listening to my body and doing the things that it feels good about.
Here's a prime example: MH and Docta Dennis both told me I was flushing my liver way too much. The 3rd week after each flush, my liver was screaming bloody murder at me, so I kept flushing. Liver Flush Support forum folks say flush every 2-4 weeks til you have 3 flushes in a row that are stone free. My first stone free flush was #16 and I must have flushed out all of my electrolytes and friendly bacteria with that one ... I had the buttpee thang for almost 24 hours, body saying EEEEnough? I switched to a milder flush. Frankly, I'm fighting hard to get my flora back into shape 2 months later, craving SAD foods that I haven't wanted, bowels are acting crazy. My body definitely says EEEEnough with the espom salts! ... and I'm listening. Let me add that after that 16 flush, my liver no longer screamed to be flushed again also, my liver pain was completely gone, and in 3 months hasn't returned.
