O..........K........ Where to begin...
I guess I'll answer a few questions first... Then on to....
A fellow BTD'r recently recommended I visit tigerdirect.com and newegg.com to find the RAM for the computer I'm building. Thanks Dani. May I recommend zipzoomfly.com. They usually have stuff even cheaper!!
Shauna, keep up the exercise! I recommend that you tone it down a wee bit though... Substitute some of the more intense cardio for brisk outdoor walking and more pilates/yoga. Keep the ol' cortisol levels in check. As far as your question regarding wheat... I avoid it completely. The only wheat I EVER eat is sprouted. I have found 4 excellent forms so far. 1) Ezekiel bread (several kinds). I LOVE this stuff. 2) Ezekiel sprouted grains cereal. 3) Ezekiel sprouted grains tortillas. 4) Food for Life Essene/Mana bread (several kinds). If you're using flour, try subbing spelt/oat/amaranth/buckwheat instead... You'll love the results, and your tummy will thank you. Shoot for 100% as far as compliance... Of course we ALL have our 'lil caveats! Keep up the excellent work.
Ann, I have done 5-6 liver gallbladder flushes thus far. I HIGHLY recommend that EVERYONE try at least two. Scan Heidi's column for more info. Or try sensiblehealth.com or, my favorite, curezone.com. The first three I did flushed quite a few "stones". The last couple haven't produced anything but chaff... A blockage? No more stones? A subconscious resistance to healing? Liver cancer? Hah! Who knows? I'll try another one here soon... Before, or after the Master Cleanse though....?
Nancy. I know EXACTLY how you feel!!!! When first starting the BTD, you really have to get used to the changes. It's quite an adjustment period to be sure! Sounds like you have a bit of a carbohydrate intolerance... Non-secretor? Keep at it! It takes the body/brain/stomach/pancreas time to learn to produce the proper enzymes to assist in the digestion/assimilation of these new/whole foods. You should have heard me whining the first time I ate soy! I remember it vividly... I was writing a paper on Edgar Allan Poe... I had just eaten an entire bag of roasted soy nuts... Not good! The gas was so bad it was painful! Ease into it. Follow the portion recommendations. Talk to your body and learn how much and when you can tolerate certain foods... It takes a while, but don't give up! You'll really thank yourself for it later! Congrats on finding the BTD! If your beans are canned... Rinse them! All types of digestive irritants in that glop from the processing. If you're soaking them... Eat the glop. Nutrient city!
Thanks to Leslie and Shannon for the response on the Master Cleanse. I was going to go into detail on the procedure/benefit/science behind it but... That would take forever! If your interested, just google it. Or, even better, check out the book by Stanley Borroughs, entitled, The Master Cleanser. Or, Healing for the Age of Enlightenment. See if it's right for you. I asked our beloved Heidi about it... I'll have to wait and see if she has time to reply. I think that I'll be starting it on Tuesday though... I should run out of food right around then... My last meal will be... SUSHI!
Thanks to everyone! And remember! I'm no Doc! Not yet anyway... I only recommend/encourage! You have to decide what foods/cleanses/procedures are right for you! Best wishes!-----Jim.
