|« Spring is in the Air...||~Good Vibrations~ »|
I used to get my hair cut by a man who told a joke about the difference between a good haircut and a bad one – the answer is one week (the time it normally takes for hair to grow a little and cover the sins of the bad haircut).
Today I am thinking about the difference between feeling ill and starting to be a person with energy once again is really two weeks or so of taking the recommended protocols from the ER4YT Encyclopaedia! I feel wonderful! And you know, we are always being looked after! The day last week that I had a terrible headache and felt so much pressure in my head and neck was the day that Dr. D. posted his little item about using bromelain instead of aspirin and similar products to help relieve pressures in the body because of bromelain’s anti-inflammatory properties. I can’t believe what a difference it has made to add this to my little collection of supplements.
My amazing recovery is directly due, I am sure, to following the BTD as closely as possible and to the fact that I’ve been doing this for quite a few years now. I think even the acupuncture doctor was amazed when I really didn’t need to go back for the third and last treatment following the angina situation (but I did go back, because we didn’t know that). He told me I had really scared him when he first saw me when I went back for my second visit, and I think he expected to see me very regularly for the rest of my life following the whole thing.
So today I’d like to focus on a few thoughts about health and well-being related to the BTD, and dedicate this, of course, with much love and gratitude, to this wonderful man who is following his heart, our own Dr. Peter D’Adamo.
Not long ago, when I was looking through the Encyclopaedia for information about my cardiovascular problems, I somehow flipped the page open to the section on vitiligo, and saw the part where it talks about premature greying of the hair. My housemate moans about the fact that at age 29, his hair is greying very, very quickly on a regular basis. I remembered that he had a few patches of whiter skin on his neck area, and asked him to show them to me, but he said that after following the BTD (at my urging, of course) for a few years, they have simply disappeared. I think there is a slightly lighter skin tone there (he is olive in complexion), but it is nowhere near as pronounced as it was when I first met him, and the “patch” effect has disappeared. He acknowledged that his mother has the same condition of premature greying of her hair and white patches of skin, so this validates the hereditary nature of vitiligo.
Speaking of hair colour, my hair, which was becoming VERY grey, has coloured up considerably since starting to take the supps for the cardiovascular protocol. My hair has been a good barometer over the years of how healthy my body is on the inside. I have watched it turn quite white overnight when I have fallen ill in years past, and then slowly return to some hint of colour as health returned. I keep looking in the mirror at this soft brownish colour that is appearing around my face and marvelling at this sudden change, which I never expected to see again.
My time is becoming quite busy in the next short while. I will be making the trip of my lifetime to Turkey in two weeks, and it’s getting exciting, as well as making me worry about getting everything done that I think needs to be done before I go. I will stay with my friend’s family (and my friend) in Istanbul most of the time, leaving to make a trip to Ephesus, Konya and Cappadocia. I have another friend with whom I will visit while in Istanbul, who lives near the Black Sea. Since Turkish cuisine leans heavily on lamb and sheep products, I should be able to eat reasonably well while I’m away. Just in case, though, I’m intending to learn the most important phrase of my life in Turkish: “Thank you very much, it looks delicious, but if I eat this, I will be very sick.” Does it sound good?
I’ll try to post one more time before I leave, but if I don’t manage it, know that it simply got to be too much, and that I’ll be in touch towards the end of May, when I return.
In the meantime, as Tiny Tim said, “God bless us, every one!” And special blessings to Dr. D. and the wonderful folks who will be attending the conference in Arizona in the next short while. I’m sure the dissemination of information will improve the quality of the lives of every one of us and our friends and relatives.
