Quoted from pkarmeier


I was just diagnosed in Nov 2006 but knowing how it all starts, I'd say it started as a child. Lived in a very abusive home.
Will look at the mdheal site, as I'm sure LGS is prob something I have as well....... double


Italy - I think we had simular early years. My mom was a wonderful christian woman.  Dad was not a christian and had severe mental illness from his experience in WW2. Growing up was hard but with the love of the congregation and Jah's protection all 5 of us survived. I was a very shy kid so some of my health problems do go all the way back. I realize some things arn't going to heal completely in this system, but I'm determined to be as healthy as I can.  Just wish I could get DH to be more interested in health issues.

well I have to update this as things have begun to move! Thanks for the l-s-w tip!!!


You're so welcome and everyone - dont forget the morning ghee!!!  
purlgirl........sorry to hear you had a similar childhood........I do think it took it's toll on my health. When you are in dread of your dad coming home and count down the hours, mins and secs, until he leaves............that is so wrong on so many levels. Thank goodness we have better lives now and made better lives for our children.
Re: DH, just set a good example.........plant..........water...........repeat.......that's about all you can do. If you do the cooking, try cooking what's good for his b/t  without him knowing it.

Or do what I did.  I put him on my A diet and almost killed him.    (This is when we figured out he has a pretty severe soy allergy.)  Then after a couple of months I switched him to his B diet and he's been a believer ever since.

Purlgirl, us A nonnies with stressful upbringings have extra issues to work through.  "Live Right 4 Your Type" has explained a lot to me about why I react the way I do to stress and why it takes me so long to get over stuff.  I thought it was my problem, but now I know it's an A nonnie thing--makes me feel a little better and I quit beating myself up.

Chronic stress can cause adrenal fatigue.  Italy, I didn't know that b/t 7-9 a.m. the adrenals regenerate.  My chilluns wake me up at 7:30 every morning and I always feel like if I could get at least one more hour of sleep I'd be okay, no matter what time I went to bed (usually around 9-10 p.m.---which SHOULD be enough sleep, but it never quite is).  There are days when I must return to bed right after breakfast because I'm so exhausted from just the simple morning routine that I can't stay upright.  Then if I can sleep just even 5 or 10 more minutes, I'm fine.  Strange.  It's like it resets something in my body and I can get up then.

Rabbit - Thanks for your thoughts. Think I may have read Live Right years ago befor I knew of my nonnism. I just got it from the library and plan to read it.

Don't know DH BT. Hope he will let me test him. I really would like to fix bennefical food for him.
He loves Milk and doesn't seem to have any problems with dairy.

Sleep - If I could sleep til 8 am I think life would be so much easier. The Adrenal Fatigue book discribes me pretty well. Just getting to the part about helping yourself heal.

Although the L-S-W doesnt have an "impact" on my digestive system, it seems to work wonders to my skin. I dont use a moisturiser for my face any more! A bit of eye cream, yes, but not for the rest of the face. Wow, talk about intra cellular hydration!
Since the water we get here is pumped up with fluoride, I have replaced all my daily drinking water with L-S-W.

Thanks for posting this Pat

Just curious how much of this you are drinking a day, especially on the salt?
You're welcome for the info, just hope you're not getting too much salt.  Lemme know, k?

I used to drink LSW all day long; it was the equivalent of 1/2 lemon in 1 L of water with a dash or two of sea salt. I got tired of that taste; plus one of my teeth chipped, which I attributed to the lemon water, so now I only drink the lemon in the am.

3x 750ml of LSW, a pinch of salt (really a pinch) to each 750ml, 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice to each 750ml. Other than this, I drink a glass of LSW with a pinch of salt & a bit of lemon juice first thing in the morning and last thing at night. And regular water as well.

Is this too much...?

A/C, is 750 ml a little over 3 Cups or around 26 oz? If so, seems like it would be okay. As a rule, I use 1/2 t. salt a day. And the juice of 1/2 lemon. I'm not sure what everyone else uses. I think Dr. Lam says for adrenals, 1/2 - 1 t on the salt. So if you're only using a pinch to each 750mls, you should be ok, but if you think you have adrenal issues, you might want to be sure you get at least 1/2 t per day.

It is important to rinse or gurgle one's mouth thoroughly after drinking fresh lemon water, so the acidity from the lemon will not corrode the teeth and the inside surface area of the mouth.

Drinking lemon water from a straw and sipping the liquid will help, as well.

I just posted this on another thread...but since this one's the one where it's being discussed I'll add my two cents.  I've drunk 1 lemon/1 tsp. salt/1 c. water every morning this past week.  I did not notice any difference in elimation.  BUT----I really think I had more energy.  The first day I felt really great, then subsequent days I felt just a little better than normal, plus I had a little trouble falling asleep at naptime.  Usually when I put the children down, I fall into bed myself and we sleep 2-3 hours every afternoon.  Now I'm just not needing it.  I lay there a while and rest, maybe dozing a little, then I get up (and maybe actually clean the house!  or just check messages ) and feel okay the rest of the day.  Interesting, huh?  I guess it's helping my adrenals.

Ribbit, sounds like a win-win situation for you.  The salt is helping your adrenals and the lemon will help clear mucus.

I've been doing a glass of tepid water with the juice of one lemon and stevia in the mornings.  Is there some reason the water has to be warm?  I noticed alot of folks here are heating the water.

As far as the gruggle, can you gruggle with mouthwash and will that do it as far as taking away the acididy?

that will be interesting...........I just do mine at room temp...........
as far as gargling, I think I'd gargle w/ straight water and then the mouthwash, but that's just my opinion.

Everything I ever read about drinking lemon water said warm, don't know about gargling.

I heat my water bc I use filtered water. Our  tap water  is so full of chlorine that you can smell and taste it. (who knows what else is in it - deffinately floride)
Be careful not to use water to hot or you will kill the enzymes in the lemon juice.

I love the warm Lemon & salt drink and believe it is helping me.

I heat the water, too. I like drinking the salt lemon water warm. I've been told not to drink tap water that has been heated by the water heater, as it has all the nasties that live in the water heater. I'd rather drink heated cold water (not through the water heater)...

Per ER and LR, the suggestion for blood type A's is to drink a cup of warm water with half of a squeezed lemon each morning to rev up the digestive system and clear mucus.

I pretty much follow through with the directions in these books; however, I use less warm, boiled reverse osmosis water, since I eat my breakfast immediately afterwards.  A few times, I have used one quarter of a lemon, but generally it is half of an organic lemon.

Other resources and authors may have slightly altering approaches. Every individuals' personal taste preferences plays a role in this, as well.
