Quoted from ABJoeMy guess is that there was some healing happening before any real cleaning could happen and now the cleaning has started.
Has your diet previously contained a large percentage of avoid foods?
My previous diet included the following avoids:
10oz of raw sheep's milk with 2oz of coffee and an apple before the smoothie
Coconut water, coconut milk and aloe gel in the smoothie instead of the chia, banana and cherry concentrate,
4oz of raw goat's milk cheese and 1/4 of one cucumber with my lunch
And the occasional grilled pork tenderloin for dinner.
Is that a lot?
Quoted from ABJoe
Has it been like this all your life?
It doesn't sound like the 80% or so avoid content that my diet was prior to my finding BTD...
Quoted from Lolatry the liver cleanse periodically
castor oil pack at night.....
it might get worse before it gets better, but so worth it!!!
How long will it take to detox those first 50 years?
After following the BTD diet for 11 years, when I started the "book" Genotype diet, I got a headache that lasted 3 months. It wasn't as severe as a migraine, just dull and ongoing. Then, it was gone. I also had weird aches and pains during that time, which also let up on their own. So, in my case anyway, I attributed it to cleansing and adjusting to the new diet.
I noticed on your sample menu that you don't eat much protein during the day, until dinner. It doesn't seem to me that you're getting nearly enough.
Quoted from AKArtloverThis is an odd question, but the midwest weather has been flopping around- do you notice a difference with weather changes?
Cranial adjustment can make a big difference in structure/pressure related headaches.
Have you looked at osteopathic cranial manipulation? It got my head "out of a vice" and realligned my jaw so my teeth meet squarely.
Here's an interesting link I came across the other day... http://www.headachecontrolclinic.com/
Add some sort of protein to the salad- canned fish or leftover cooked meat. I'm not sure the protein content of all those green powders you use in the smoothie- you may or may not need to add a protein powder to the mix as well.
Since the headache went away when you took the supplements, it sounds like you might have gotten a headache from "not eating enough" rather than from "detox." If you think the krill oil was the clincher, try adding more fats and oils to your diet. I'm not entirely sure what the "organ supplement" is, but could that have contained protein or other nutrients you could have gotten from meat or fish?
I often get headaches when I need to eat, and getting enough protein makes them go away.
Kombucha is a strong detoxifier. It's a wonderful food, full of probiotics, but you may want to reduce your intake (or stop altogether) until the migraines/detox headaches go away.
I can't see any reason for you to stop taking the organ supplement- nothing in there looks like an "avoid" for O's or Hunters, although I don't know the specifics of your SWAMI.
Quoted from kitariI sometimes get headaches in the fall due to high weed pollen and mold in the air. Could seasonal allergies be contributing to your migraines?
Check out Wild Planet for low mercury tuna:
I just placed an order from Vital Choice for unsmoked sardines packed in organic extra virgin olive oil and sea salt - No BPA cans. They offer 10% discount with the first order. Use code INTC265
I just found some boneless sockeye salmon in spring water and glass! Sockeye is a diamond for me and glass has no BPA. Yes!
Quoted from Goldiewhat did you do if anything?????
Where did you find the salmon in glass?
Mercury levels are significantly higher in bluefin akami (sushi from lean, dark red tuna) and all bigeye tuna samples than in bluefin toro (sushi from fatty tuna) and yellowfin tuna akami samples.
Although yellowfin tuna is very lean, this species tends to have lower accumulation of mercury, likely because yellowfin are typically smaller than other tuna and are harvested at a younger age. Furthermore, yellowfin are tropical and do not thermoregulate like the warm-blooded bigeye tuna and bluefin tuna.
Because bigeye and bluefin species eat three times more than yellowfin to maintain their energy level, they might bioaccumulate, or slowly increase the level of toxins over time.
Mark Kantor, a food scientist at the University of Maryland, and a nutrition communicator with the Institute of Food Technologists. Kantor, who regularly reads federal pesticide surveillance reports, notes that “pesticide residues in food oils are negligible.” Organic oils are also certified to be free of genetically modified content, which you may choose to avoid.
Production of olive oil has a tendency to concentrate pesticide residues in the oil as it takes four kilograms of olives to make one kilogram of olive oil.
Quoted TextI wish I could have had it done while I had the pain but I didn't have the authorization then.
What lab work are you having done and why do you think your supps will affect the results?
When I go for lab work, I fast as indicated, but take all my supplements on time the day before, then take them again after the blood is taken.
Quoted from GoldieI am believing Magnesium worth a try.. at least add eating pumpkin seeds..
