Second liver cleanse

TMI warning :)

For me, this was more difficult than the first. I don't know why, maybe because I'm on Humaworm. I stopped the Humaworm for the day I did the cleanse.

The fasting still killed me just like last time. In the morning, I felt weak and like I was fighting the flu. I didn't see the "peas" like last time (some very small green things, but not as big as last time), but had an unbelievable amount of sludge (looked like sawdust or cornmeal and some was bound together in balls the size of a large marble). If all this stuff from the first time and this time is really from my liver, I can't believe it was functioning at all. No wonder ART testing and muscle testing shows my liver is stressed!

Once I could start drinking juice, I made some fresh pineapple/apple juice and felt better within an hour. Not great, but better. By evening, I felt horrible again and my stomach hurt. I don't know if it was my liver or my pilates class or a combination of the two. Yes, I went to pilates the afternoon of my cleanse after having two glasses of juice and a smoothie.

Today I am feeling a lot better. I am still weak, but I am also still on Humaworm. And, weak is relative. I got up at 8:30, went to the gym and did cardio and weights. I got cleaned up and went to the country club with my husband and daughter for a nice lunch on the patio. Now I'm getting ready to go to Old Navy, Starbucks, the dry cleaners, and the office. Tonight we're going to see a movie. So, weak is relative. I'm probably feeling better than most "healthy" people ..... I actually don't think too many people are truly healthy these days, which may be why it's so hard for them to realize Lyme patients are so sick.

I've started taking a liver support product with milk thistle and dandelion. I won't take it forever, but I thought it was a nice follow up to the two liver cleanses. Honestly, it was too much with the Humaworm. I would recommend not cleansing the liver till after the round of Humaworm ... it just felt like too much. I also don't think I will feel good till I'm done with the Humaworm. It always makes me feel horrible. I'm wondering if one of the ingredients is bad for me or if it's just killing off a lot. I muscle test great for it.

I hope you are all healthy enough to enjoy the pretty weather we've been having!

Onto the next thing!

My various symptoms from the immune system kicking in only lasted a matter of days, thankfully. So, since I seem to prefer to torture myself than take breaks, as soon as it lifted for a couple days, I started Humaworm to work on the parasites.

Protocol right now - Humaworm, Depyrro/oil of evening primrose, NAC, ALA, Zeolite, iron and mag.

The Humaworm is knocking me on my butt. I'm feeling better now than I did a year ago on a GOOD day, BUT it's bad compared to "normal." I feel weak, tired, I'm sleeping at least 10 hours per night (probably more like 11), I have diarrhea (suh-weeet), and I'm ready to feel better. I know I need the Humaworm. I know it wouldn't be hitting me like this if it weren't killing something off.

You'll notice a very limited protocol. At this point, I'm just done pushing it. I'm doing really well and am taking care of the last of the infections, but I'm not going to do mega-protocols anymore. I'm not severe like I was, so I don't think it warrants an aggressive protocol.

I plan on doing my second liver cleanse tomorrow. Can't wait .... it boosted my health so much the first time and many of the aches are back (which is what the Hulda Clark website says will happen till you get enough stones out, then you will maintain).

I plan on continuing to photon as needed, which has been once per month lately.

When this is done, I'm going to take it a little easier this summer. Plans are - Depyrrol/oil of evening primrose, iron, mag .... which will be an all the time protocol ..... should look for a good multiple vitamin for basic health, too. Also, NAC, ALA, Zeolite for toxins/heavy metals. Resveratrol (I like it) and Triphala (like it, too). I'm hoping that this summer protocol turns into my maintenance plan with photons as needed.

Off to a softball game tonight. If you're a facebook friend, there will be more pics up. :)

immune system

I was feeling really great after the liver cleanse. I am so calm .... I never realized I had anxiety, but now that it's lifted, I feel so calm. It was really a good weekend. :) My OCD tendencies have let up a lot, too.

I did have a glitch after the liver cleanse. The first night I was fine. The second night ... oh, I should mention I had three and a half margaritas at dinner (previously would have sent me to my grave) .... I woke up in the middle of the night in intense pain. Where I think my liver to be, it felt like someone was pouring acid on it. I sat up in bed, leaned forward and rocked. After time went by, I had some, uh, gas? A couple belches later, and I felt better, some more time passed, and I could lay down and go back to sleep. In the morning, I woke up feeling great. I swore off all alcohol that night and hubby said he'd never let me drink again.

The same exact thing happened the next night. Both nights the whole process took about an hour. I would have resorted to narcotics the second night, but knew that by the time they kicked in the pain would be gone anyway. I would have gone to the hospital, but I've been through that routine so many times I know it would have been useless. Hubby now realizes that the pain was not connected to the alcohol and reneges on his promise to keep me from alcohol since I had no hangover whatsoever from the three and a half margaritas.

The third night I decided to take some epsom salts. If it was stones moving around in my liver and the epsom salts were what kept it from hurting the first night, I was taking them again. No pain last night. I did wake up at 5:30 with a need to rush to the bathroom, no doubt because of the epsom salts, LOL, and when I woke up I was drenched with sweat. I thought maybe the sweat was connected to the salts, too, but my air hunger today showed it was the babs.

I felt okay this morning. I went to Pilates and was strong. The teacher had been mentioning how weak I've been the past few times (since I started the KPU treatment), but this week she said I looked strong again. She did notice my air hunger and thought I was short of breath.

I started feeling bad afterward, went to the grocery, and by the time I got home felt fluish. I treated with photons .... I try to catch the babs during flares. Still felt horrible ... usually feel good after photons. I'm achey, tired, throat hurts, have diarrhea (not from espom salts now), and want to lie down.

I think I'm to the point with the KPU where the immune system is kicking back in, thus the babs flare and the various virus symptoms. Everything I've read on "healing reactions" says that they happen when your body gets strong enough to heal, typically after you've felt "the best you've ever felt". That is true for me. So, I'm taking this down time to mean I'm getting better. I think I'm going to get some tea, some water, and go roll up on the couch and watch a movie. :) Enjoy your evening and thanks for reading.

Liver cleanse

I have read about liver cleansing but have never tried it. Honestly, the fasting part sounded horrible to me, I just don't do well when I don't eat! But I was feeling so poorly on this new pyroluria protocol that I thought I'd give it a try.

To backtrack, I started the Depyrrol and Oil of Evening Primrose like I said in my last post. Taking herbs with it seemed like too much, so I kept up with zeolite, NAC and ALA to help with toxins and metals being released with the KPU/pyroluria protocol, but dropped the herbs. I still felt tired and achey. I was getting nothing done but some reading.

Yesterday I fasted as directed in the Hulda Clark liver cleanse. I didn't even drink water except for the 6PM and 8PM doses of epsom salts. I took a long nap in the afternoon .... with only eating carbs with no fat all morning, the fasting in the afternoon wasn't going too well. My blood sugar drops and I end up with no energy at all. At 10PM I drank the grapefruit juice, black walnut tincture, and olive oil mixture and went straight to bed as directed. I could have drank a gallon of that stuff I was so hungry and thirsty!

I felt horrible by the time I went to bed. I took the orthinine as directed and still couldn't sleep as the instructions promised. When I got up in the morning, I had diarrhea as the directions promised .... and with that, the promised stones.

I had to go to 10:30 till I could start eating .... I started out with fresh juices. Then later I had a smoothie. The rest of the day, I felt really good! I'm not feeling 100% perfect, but I'm feeling great compared to how I was feeling. I passed hundreds of stones. I plan on doing the cleanse again in two weeks. I guess the best way is to do it every two weeks until no stones are passed.

I was hoping it would help, but never dreamt that it would have helped this much.
