Thanks Symbi.  All is good, those supps I recently got are helping us all ...

Life is beautiful as long as we do not mess it up ourselves ... That is why we are here, to maintain it as nice as we possible can!

  Thanks for making me feel better, fighting off a cold / flu bug at the moment.  You've just rallied my immune troops I think!

Thanks Possum, he is all right now, but it was a shock at first, we knew the doctors said only a few days, but it does not register that way really, specially since we were talking to her not long ago, mixed up with the doc, he told her no cancer, begnign tumors in the liver, then weeks, days later, his other brother there (Uruguay)  call us she is in hospital!!! and now gone!!!

Not being there, did not see the deterioration, have the feeling family kept it quite too, nothing else we could have done! but pray and we did plenty of that!.  Hubby is OK though, makes him think deeper.  She was only 55, younger and only sister.  Lost older brother a few year back at 40 something of heart attack!!  There are 3 of them now ... It has certainly activated compliance on him ... I think .... he says ... old habits ... is harder for some people than others.  Easy for me, clear as air (unpolluted, fresh one)!! Is it a secretor thing?

Can't be, you girls are compliant, you better be of this mamma jump out in front of your screen with the Swami list for your type  

Symbi, is the change of season, temperatures have gone crazy, cold, hot, cold, windy, humid, dry,  have it all lately ...  Boost that immune system with some supps if necessary, lots of compliance ... Also, get away from the pollution down there and come here ...  Got a housefull at the moment, but plenty of room to throw mattresses somewhere somehow!!!

(hug) you both girls ...

rofl  I'm scared I ate two black dots last night, whatcha gonna do to me Mum!

Thanks for the invitation!  That's sweet!  Will come and see you one day and explore the Sunshine coast as we haven't done that yet.  End of June we're going to Darwin though to see my Mum and it may be a while before DH gets time off work after that.

BTW I found some pimentos in Woolworths (may be of interest?).  They were sold in a pack of four under the name Capsicum Baby Red 250g (wee little things - used two in stir fry last night).  
They taste sweet like paprika unsurprisingly and didn't give me the burps which other capsicums do!   (neutral on my SWAMI)

about those avoids!!! Have any deflect handy?  Check those avoids, finding out why they are bad for you and that will give you an idea of how to counteract their action in the next few days of compliance!!!!  

Thanks about the tip on pimento!! I have been buying those lately, they have them here too. I am glad you are on the same wave length regarding those because although bell peppers are beneficial to me, they are avoid for my nonnie hubby.  But Pimento is neutral for both of us, so far so good everytime I used them in my cooking ...  

Nice about seeing your mum.  You will enjoy your trip to Darwin and be prepared, watch those avoids.  That will be the best time of the year to make that trip...

Thanks Cristina!  You're right.  I should get some Kelp which I read is a A nonnie lectin deflector.  Don't think I could afford the NAP products though.  

When you see how many diamonds, superfoods and neutrals I ate along with the two black dots you will be pleased and I only used the tinniest amounts of Tamari and Red chilli flakes for flavor!   http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?m-1274890622/s-new/#num11
Thanks for caring.

Glad you got pimentos too they are gems!  Bell peppers beneficial bennisimo!
Lived in Darwin for 18 years but the heat and humidity even in June may get to me.  I felt trapped up there for many years.  Not anymore!  Mainly nice for little one to see grandma's house.    

BTW Cristina we wouldn't want to put you out staying at your house, so one day when we come up there we'll stay at one of the resorts and will love to meet you.

Today I started brushing my teeth with the bi-carb soda and salt paste again, I had used the bi-carb before, but not with the salt.  My organic, super expensive toothpaste is finished and I am not going to buy another one.

I also started substituting soy milk with the super bene almond milk (home made).  I used that with our coffees.  

Last few days I have been pretty consistent with my supps, the teacher 3 pack, the odd cortiguard and Nap's B12.  I have also been taking Ocubright, to help my eyes.  The weather has been miserably here lately, and I feel I have been spending too much time  indoors looking at the screen!!

Something is going on at the moment with my body.  I feel great, strong, I feel that in my nails, but at the same time I feel like I am dehydrating ...  I have to pay attention to my water intake!!  Today I got a shock when I check my hydration status on my scales (one of those electronic ones that tell you a few things besides your weight): 41.9%!!! The lowest I have ever been!!  Anything less than 45 they ask you to go swimming and drink, drink, drink!!!!   What is causing this sudden de=hydration? the weather has been cold, rainy, so, it is not the heat! mmm how many cups of coffe we had?  ...

Thinking back, I had chinese take away twice this week!!  Listed ingredients looked compliant, but who knows what the hidden ingredients may have been!!

Because I have not been out much, I have not been sweating either.  We have faithfully taken Zuri for her walks and let her run at the beach a bit, so I have not been a couch potato either, hardly watch any TV at all the last few days, or was it weeks? .. Maybe that spur of energy the other day with the re-arranging, furniture moving ... maybe I did not drink enough water then ...  

I am sitting here with my water bottle next to me!! sipping merrily and often!

Something I did a lot of today was meditate!  soft music helps me get into it and with the house to ourselves this weekend, I was able to do it whenever I felt the need.  It has been a bliss ...

I have learnt a lot from the forum these last couple of days: the oil pulling was one thing, never heard of it before, but, what an excellent idea.  I will try that first thing in the morning, before my lemon water!.  I will use Organic Sunflower Oil Cold pressed.  It is a neutral for me, but a black dot for hubby.  He will use the organic Apricot Kernel Oil we have, hopefully that will also work fine.  

Ah! I have also ordered the DNA test from National Geographic, very exciting ...

Good point Possum, I also read that salt and baking soda could be abrasive and it is better to wet the stuff.  What I am doing now is coat a pickstik in it and use that to floss.  Then use toothbrush just wet, no paste, to gently go over my teeth.  Then, rinse mouth.  Twice a day morning and before bedtime, I follow up with oil pulling.  I try to floss after any meals, but that is not always possible.

It has only been two days with this routine, and I have noticed marked whitening of my teeth!! Even after drinking coffee daily!

We finished the Almond milk batch I did yesterday.  But today, by the end of the day, it has lost its sweetness and was not tasting as nice.  I have some more almonds soaking tonight, but I will use them in batches to make the milk.  Make enough milk for one day, keep the rest of the almonds soaking in water but in the fridge and make more milk tomorrow.  This way I have fresh milk and sweet soaked almonds on demand!!

That cancer and obesity video was a hit at my place today!! Thanks Eric!! My husband was showing it to our visitors and talking to them about BTD!!!! He is referencing his Swami a lot more these days!!  So, the path in this journey is widening and smoothing ahead of us,  beautiful ride!!

It must be the cold weather, but our main meals lately have shifted towards the evenings.  For the first time in quite a while, today I cook Spelt pasta for dinner. I served it with the usual chopped vegies (carrots, onion, garlic, pimento, zuccini, broccoli), celtic salt, ginger and turmeric.  I divided this base into two so I could add tomatoes to DH and kept mine with just the usual Tamari.  I used a combination of Parmesan and Gruyere grated cheese on mine, while I grated Feta and Mozzarela on DH.  Now Mozzarela is a black dot for him, but he loves his cheese and usually ends up eating mine that are avoids for him, therefore the lesser lectin ...

Talking about lectins... Today I have been reading about Deflect quiet a bit and I now understand that taking it, is not necessarily restricted to eating avoids times!!  I know my gut must be ridden with lectins that have already attached themselves to my inside (the gut walls, cells, organs), invited over by years of not eating for my type.  Taking Deflect will help accelerate the results of being compliant because it will detach those lectins that have taken residence and eliminate them from my body.  Of course, drinking a lot of water will also speed up the process by providing the hydration necessary to smooth the exit routes.   So, Deflect will now join my Teacher 3 pack, occubright and cortiguard as my daily nutrient ammunition!!

And, on the subject of hydration, my readings are a bit better today, but not quiet as good as hubby's: nearly 50% for him and he hardly drinks any water!!! Figure that?? Could it be water retention on him?  He seriously does not drink water.  I keep on reminding him, have a glass here and there.  He could be the whole morning in his office without drinking, except for the glass of water following his coffee drink!  While me on the other hand, do make an effort to drink and have my water bottle nearby .  My readings today were nearly 44%, much better than yesterday ...

Fix the inside get results on the outside!!  Will keep on posting progress!!

and Possum ... BTW, how do you remove white oil guk from my screen and keyboard???!!!   True! lucky I was not doing the  'oil pulling' when I read your message!!!

Anyway, I should be in bed right now, but I could not sleep, and for once cannot blame hubby snoring, I do not think he has snored in the last few nights.  Well, that is a reflection of his diet improvement.  Back to me now.  For the first time, I think I had palpitations!!  Now, I have a feeling that having the B12 supp  after dinner tonight may have something to do with it.  I have had B12 in the past, and it always make me feel energetic! wanting to do things, alert, which is fine during the day, but not now.  

Or it could also be the elimination of toxins process spur by my recent changes in oral hygiene (oil pulling) and the addition of supps ...

I have  just made myself a cup of chamomile tea with some honey and I also had one Tranquility Base capsule.  Ah! that should do it, It pays to be prepared!! What else was in the Calm Focus pack?  ... Attentia and B12!! Ding!!!, being an A with our typical stressful nature, I should include the Tranquility Base and Attentia whenever I have the B12 ... Something to ponder on ... Feeling sleepy again, time to go back to bed ...

I will keep on adding my progress to this post  to record my handling and results of  whatever it is that is affecting me lately, at least for the next 72hrs. unless of course I get feedback posts in which case I will move on.  

My puppy woke me up at 4:00 am as usual for her 'bathroom'visit.  We need to fix a puppy door so she can go out on her own!!  She is only 5 months now and putting on over 1 kg per week!  At this rate of growing, we might just as well train her to open the door herself instead of putting a large opening on existing door to fit her adult size!  

Moving on, I felt pretty run down then, like the flueish  symptoms, particularly with my throat, sort of closing in. I reached for my immune pack: one Redoxa, one AraPlus and one Proberry.  Hubby made me a cup of ginger tea with lemon and honey, which I had while  checking this forum for further information on those supps.  Back to bed and meditate for, not sure how long, must have falling asleep again until about 7:00am, with Zuri demanding her morning walk!.  I first thought I would not be up to it, but wrap myself up anyway and off we went for a neighbourhood walk with hubby, but not before having my warm glass of water with lemon juice (from our own lemon trees ladden with lemons) and using a straw, followed by 'oil pulling'.  The walk was lovely, although still pretty nippy out there, but  you can see the beautiful sunny day developing and by the time we got home, I was feeling so much better.  

Drank about 2 glasses of water while preparing coffee.  We had it with soy milk this time, blender was in the dishwasher to make my almond milk.  A couple of rice cakes with peanut butter went down very well with the coffee.  I almost forgot to have my Deflect!! so I had it a few minutes later, hopefully was still in time for it to remove those lectin invaders so the good stuff can do its work inside!!  

Let's see what else is happening in the forum ... come back here later ...  

PS Nr 1:
Well, by 10am I felt so good and Zuri being like she needed exercise, so I decided to do another walk, on my own this time and different route. Drank a bit of water and off we went! Beautiful morning and surroundings out here, with plenty of trees and birds all over the place and the cooling sea breeze was heavenly!!  We walked quite a bit, I was feeling great! 1.5hrs later we are back home, drink more water and settled in with normal household chores.  Hubby wanted to have another coffee by 11:30am, but I thought it was too soon from the previous one and I offered him some yogurt instead.  We had it with compliant seeds, Goji beerries, prunes and peaches.  Yummy.

I then realized my symptoms had disappeared, no problems with the throat, seemed fine, and obviously feeling energetic again.  But now typing this I want to go back to sleep, that is what Zuri is doing at the moment, recovering energy with a nap!.  I added a home grown passion fruit to my fare too.  I have had no other supps since the Deflect this morning.  We will probably have lunch at 2pm using leftovers from last night with some other freshly harvested vegies and second dose of supps.  It feels so good to be able to do things with purpose, take the question mark out of a situation, being able to act on the spot before things escalate into something unmanageable and rip wonderful results.  That is the way I am feeling at the moment ...

Thanks Lola and Symbi for popping in.  I am answering your replies in the next posts and continue on from then on.

Glad you're fighting the flu off.  And the road is getting smoother, "may the road rise up to meet you"  

Wondering though if you may be suffering adrenal fatigue.  Being dehydrated but drinking a lot is a sign of it.  Also heart palpitations and having energy when it's bed time (the adrenals have been sluggish all day and are finally working but it's too late).  If your blood pressure isn't high, maybe you could add some sea salt into your water a few times a day.  Fighting the flu would tire your adrenals so hopefully it's just temporary. Made me wonder when you got dehydrated after cleaning your study though that you may have overdone it.  

I'm reading Dr James Wilson's adrenal fatigue book and it's really good!  Ginger is a good help so good on DH making you a good and nice tea.

Dunno what oil pulling is so long as there's no risk of oil spilling out into the ocean it's probably good.    Will search

Great advice Lola!! So far so good!  

Symbi, you probably by now would have find out (like I did recently) what oil pulling is: swirling a couple of tablespoonfuls of oil on your mouth for about 15 minutes!!  Until the oil comes out white!!!  It is suppose to clean your mouth, fight bacteria and be good cleansing hygienic oral thing to do at least twice daily.  There are lots of threads mentioning it in this forum and some great detailed explanations around the web.

Thanks for the heads (what was I thinking? legs?!!! ) up on adrenal fatigue, and if that is what it is, I hope is temporary too! I use salty baking soda paste for my flossing, and use salt in my cooking, only good old celtic salt! But, I may try to drop a few grains of salt on my next glass of water.  Check my Ps nr 1 update on the last post, I think the supps seem to be doing a great job at the moment too.

The mailman brought the National Geographic DNA test kit!!  They also called me to inform me that they will refund the male test which I cannot use in Australia!! I think I posted somewhere else that I had ordered both (male and female dna), but being  a woman, I can only do the female test.  Men, on the other hand, can do both! I do not have any direct male relatives in Australia.  My only direct living relative is my bro in Texas, Houston.  he will have to the test for the father side.   I will perform the (mother side) test tomorrow morning and send it away.  We get the report via e-mail within 20 days!!  How exciting!!  I still have to ask my brother to do the parental one in Texas!!  

We had last night's leftover dinner for lunch at about 2pm this afternoon.   Added some lentils to the mixtures to extend it a bit more.  Served with our compliant cheeses!!   I also had my second lot of supps: Deflect and the Calm Focus pack (B12, Attentia, tranquility Base) and cortiguard.

The kids arrived this afternoon and we also sat down with them to have dinner at 6:00pm: basmatic organic rice with 'mama's sauce base (pimento, red onion, carrot, celery, turmeric, celtic salt, ginger, vegemite, tamari and home-made chicken stock).  Added bok choi and fresh parsley from the garden, let it simmer for a few minutes, and presto!! Served over the  rice.  Since I already had spelt pasta earlier, my serving this time did not have the rice, just the yummy vegie sauce with a bit of Parmesan cheese.  Supps with dinner included Deflect and Proberry caps.

I ended up not having a nap this afternoon, so I will try to go to bed earlier tonight...  

PS: I have just done my flossing and oil pulling.  I will now do some meditation.  Looking back at the last couple of day, AF or not, this all have to be good for my journey towards optimum health!! That thought alone is so comforting and relaxing  ...,

I simply had both kits sent to my brother s doorstep in NY!!

if I would have asked him to do the ordering, I would still be waiting for my results!!
hope your brother is a bit more cooperative and enthusiastic about the whole project.

With my brother in Houston, Texas, which one do you think will be best company or test lab to approach for him?  I will be paying  from here, he will do the test, but I want to have access to the reports either on line or sent directly to me.  You can PM me Lola.  Thanks

Thanks Lola. i talked to my brother and he is very willing to do the test.  We will have to work the logistics of it at some stage soon.

Today, I did not do any walking or relaxation, somehow it was a rushed day! With cooking, shopping and cleaning, chatting to family overseas and browsing the forum every now and then, and doing research on this and that, the time went fast!!  I was able to keep my focus on compliance and my supps on schedule.   Once I realized the walking and relaxation were not going to happen today, I substituted the Teacher 3 pack for the  Calm Focus  pack (once), plus Cortiguard , Histonia and Occubright.  I had those once during the day.  I also had Deflect 3 times, after each main meal.

I am doing the oil pulling now, after flossing, and at the end of another beautiful Teacher day.  My meals today were:

Breakfast: home-made granola (home stone flaked oats, sesame seeds, honey, olive oil, vanilla paste, mixed together, spread on a oven tray, warm for a few minutes or until desired golden consistency and serve),  with soy milk .  A few minutes later we had soyaccino with honey.

Snack was a few nuts and seeds with a couple of dates.

Lunch was rice cakes with tuna slices and olive oil

We had a very early dinner (4:45pm): basmatic rice with onion, carrot, capsicum, arugula (or sweedes). Served with a turmeric, ginger, thyme, celtic salt, tamari, vegemite and chicken broth sauce with sprinkle of compliant cheeses on top.  

The diet is definetly working, my clothes are still lose and I did not have any cravings at all today, I do not think I have had cravings for a while!   and I feel energetic.

The lesson for the day for me today was that I may not have been drinking enough water after all!!! According to my weight I should be drinking nearly 3 litres and I can only guarantee up to 1.5 litres.  So, I have now filled 4 x 750ml glass bottles and I have to drink them all by the end of the day!!

I also  had my scales figures all mixed up! The 41% I was so hard trying to get up to at least 45%, was actually the body fat percentage which I should try to get down to 35%.  The body water percentage is actually sitting at around 40% and should go up to at least 45%!!!  Thanks to DD who helped me decipher that one this afternoon!

I am somehow amazed as to how easy has been to arrest whatever it was that was affecting  me the other night!!  I had always been a pro-home remedies person, and when sumptoms of flue or cold were creeping in, I always had countless tablets of vit C, garlic, and horseradish tablets, plus teas, honey, lemon, and wrapps, and eucaliptus leaves steaming in the house to clean the air ... But, although they ussually worked and avoided the trip to the docs and antibiotics for most times, it will still take a few days to fight things off, not hours!! Also, this time I did not have to swallow as many tablets either, as indicated in these posts ...  

Back to forum for a bit of browsing and see if I can close the day with a nice hour of meditation before bed time ...

Oh, something else before I go, my husband just pop in to ask me what to have for a sore throat, while DD was searching my bag of goodies for hers.  According to them, I am the Doc in the house now ... I think I will wait a bit longer before I explain to them that SwamiX is the real doc in this home!!! supported of course by a worlwide forum team and supervised by the chief himself, Dr D.   I have the feeling it will not take them long to realize that for themselves ...  In the meantime I am having fun with the tittle mama doctor

FYI and oil pulling.  I did it for many months.  It managed to "remove" all the dental bonding I had on
two teeth.  Oil pulling can remove fillings and caps as well.  Just giving you all a heads up in case
it suddenly happens to any of you.  There is an old (really good thread) on this forum about OPing if
it's still here.
