Well, the reason I have been a little lax in the blog department is that we've finally gone to exchange of contract!!!!! Now, this is a bit of a New South Wales thing, but the law of property sales in that state allows for "gazumping". Gazumping means that even though you have made an offer that's been accepted by the vendor, if another person makes an offer on the property and gets to exchange of contract first, they get the house/land/deal. This doesn't happen in Qld, so it's been a bit of an education to deal with the legal system.
So, this means that in roughly 53 days, we'll be the proud owners of the farm. The only hitch being that we live on the opposite side of the country at the moment slight hassle. Thus we're starting to plan in detail how we will make the move out to the property and the skills etc that we will need to make our dream a reality. Hubby recently celebrated his birthday so he got a book on Biodynamic Farming methods and he's already started talking about different elements.
This whole exercise has been a lot like being on the BTD for me. You can make a deal with yourself and then things happen along the way that break that contract. You fall off the wagon, things happen and you might choose to not follow the recommendations. Then suddenly something happens that makes you really commit to your health - you start reading the books, cleaning out your cupboards and planning your meals a little more.
I need to do that. I'm 100% compliant to the O non diet, but something is still affecting me. Ron's mis-typing scared me, but I've been tested 3 or 4 times and I'm always an O, so I'm confident that I'm on the right diet. The problem seems to be my stomache and its inability to just settle at the moment. We're going to a different doctor on the 12th, which I'm hoping will lead to me finding somebody like my old Brissie doctor - caring and truly committed to using natural therapies instead of trying to throw antibiotics at things.
I'm wondering about trying the explorer diet to see if that will help, but the gripping pain I have after eating is making me a little gunshy of trying anything new. Who knows, it could be the thing that helps even though the test clearly indicates that I should be on the BTD not the GTD.
Hopefully you will be able to get the stomach thing under control...
I am having some discomfort due to detox, but my practitioner is able to help me with homeopathic preparations to aid the processing of the toxic components. This reduces the pain and nausea significantly.
nice to read of your enthusiasm and your new farm; are you going to be anywhere near the ACT? There seem to be so few of us in Australia (at least on the Forum. I have written to Eh (Madge) in Wollongong I think, and Sue and Paul in Tasmania used to be very active communicators but I don't see them now.
I was a BTDer until 8 months ago, now on GTD Warrior and doing well. Sorry to hear about your stomach disorder. Changing mine seemed to do the trick, as I previously had a lingering digetive pain in the bile area, and when I found out that chicken should be removed (it had been neutral on the BTD)
all was well.But if you have tested as better on the BTD it would be a hard ask to change.Anyway, as I said, good luck.
Did you get my email sent from the other site? I am a Tasmanian living in NZ Moving back in a year; I have family in Canberra who I visit as often as I can Would you have Sue's or Paul's contact details, as like you I would love to know some more Aussies on or interested in this type of diet.
