In my years of chronic illness I have been blessed to count as true friends a few altruistic individuals who have spent time with me to explain and explore possible cures. These people are my support group and they include medical professionals, curezoners, and family. I have tried different treatments from convention sources like taking pills such as antidepressants (because they increase the pain threshold) and I have even been prescribed narcotics. Whilst all these ‘pill’ therapies appear to work in the short time, they have also inflict hidden damage within my organs. I was always on the lookout for an instant cure and this made me vulnerable the world of alternative therapies and quackery. I have tried many therapies and those that had a beneficial effect I have kept and others have been discarded. I have used massage, physiotherapy regimes, exercise and diets; that’s the nature of finding a cure. What works for some one doesn’t work for everyone even if they appear to have the same symptoms and signs.
I have benefited greatly from the Liver Flush protocol but I have never found it harmful or addictive. Liver Flushing is the best therapy I have encountered to eradicate my gallbladder pain and it also appears to have had other benefits in alleviating my fibromyalgic symptoms, allowing me to exercise, clearing my head and enabling me to sleep better. My medical doctor is astounded at the positive progress I have made over the last two years.
However, I learnt from another great healer, a pain management psychologist that it is also just as important to change the mind as well as the body.
Your chronic illness, the fact that you just don’t ever feel right or are ever conscious of your body may make ordinary exchanges with others become a real challenge. When things we try don’t work out our path can be a downward spiral of despair leading to loneliness and isolation. This leads to frustration and anger if we are not careful over time we start to hate the world. Be very alert to the use of language because words reveal the inner self and may show distorted thinking. Telling someone else that they dumb just because something doesn’t work out for you shows that the inner dialogue has taking control. Saying something is harmful and addictive to people that care and avoid the addictive nature of medication is a sign of deep internal unrest. We all need to deal with the psychological issue which we often refer to as the spiritualism side.
Alternatively, I also think we need to recognise the anger and frustration caused by chronic health problems and on occasions give people some space to vent their feelings and opinions. We are supposed to be a caring and understanding forum and we should listen and well as speak. The last word in an argument isn't necessarily the best word.
The liver-flush therapy stands on its own merit and there are many testaments to its successes. It is going to have its opponents, proponents, zealots and antagonists. We all draw the line at BAITING people, personal insult, reckless theories, misleading advice, and bad language but I sometimes think we may get a little overprotective.
