2nd round

I received my second round of AI and the more limited report that comes with it. It said that all areas mentioned in the first report are cleared and only one toxin remains. I started the second round last Thursday and so far nothing. I'll keep you posted if there's anything to report.

I've been feeling good and living life.

Gut update

I just realized when I was eating a big salad for lunch that I haven't talked about my gut much on here lately. Last I did I still couldn't eat salad as a main course, but was starting to be able to eat it as a side dish.

My gut has healed more since then and now I can enjoy salads for main dishes as well as fresh juices. I've been juicing lately and enjoying a lot of raw veggies with no problem. I do need HCL when I eat the raw veggies just as I do with any other meal I eat.

Also interesting is that I've been "properly combining" foods according to natural hygeine principals since I can eat veggies again, though a little looser than recommended in The Body Ecology Diet. My diet goes along more with Fit for Life, that diet book from the 80's. I eat fruit until noon, then don't eat an animal protein with a starchy carb for the other meals. I wait about three hours between meals.

What's interesting about it is that when I eat this way, I require less HCL than when I don't. Also, when I eat this way I have a TON more energy than when I don't. I ate this way for about ten years prior to getting sick, but had to stop because I had lost so much weight when I was ill (it's hard to keep weight on when you properly combine) and because I couldn't eat raw veggies, which is a big part of this way of eating.

I mentioned my surge of energy to my 22 year old daughter. She said that she was always the same way when she food combined. It was a tough time to get the motivation to start this "diet", but after only one week, I was SOLD on it again!!! It's worth the trouble.

Quick AI update

Sorry, really nothing to report. Still taking the supplements noted below. No changes. Still feel good. I'll let you know what the report says when I get it in a couple weeks. I have three days left in this round. I still muscle test as needing the AI drops.
