The tale continues……………………..The treatment.
We are now in April 2000 and have all my tests and results confirmed. Bruce is convinced that BTD can help me as a lot of my problems are digestion related. Bruce himself adhered to the principals of BTD in his own diet. I am fully supportive of the idea and with the help of my Wife who has been a tower of strength through all of this we modified my diet to suit. The hardest part was eliminating avoid foods that I had enjoyed all my life, predominantly the Nightshade group of Potato, Tomato and Capsicum [Bell Pepper]. I loved Potatoes in any shape or form and particularly chips [French Fries] to the extent that when my workmates had chips at work they called me Seagull because I was always looking for a free chip. I am convinced that our palate is similar to a dogs mind, it takes a dog 42 consecutive days to learn a new behaviour and I believe our palate is the same. The longer you can go without eating an avoid food the easier it becomes, I haven’t had a potato product in 4 years now and no longer desire them and the boys at work can eat their chips in peace. My wife has since taken a blood test and is one of the rarer AB breed. Our diet has now evolved to the stage where it is a balance of beneficial and neutral foods for both types.
As a more direct treatment I take a Homeopathic Kelp medication twice a day for my Thyroid condition. With the propensity of type A people to have digestion disorders both Bruce and I felt that this could be a contributing factor in the recurring indigestion and chest pain. As an adjunct to the BTD I also take a Homeopathic Stomachic treatment 10 minutes before meals, this stimulates the gastric juices and a Digestive tract treatment 10 minutes after meals. All of these treatments are in liquid form and only require 10 drops on the tongue.
I continued to see Bruce every 8 weeks for the first Year and began to notice significant improvements in all areas after approx. 6 months. I had further blood tests after 12 months and these showed significant improvements in my Thyroid levels and I was now having almost no chest pains or indigestion.
My visits to Bruce became more infrequent as my general health improved and unfortunately Bruce retired in early 2003.
