Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I didn't sleep while on it. I think it has to do with the bug die-off...the liver has to work really hard with all that going on, and that can disturb sleep. How is the head? Any sign of big head syndrome? I'd say that would be reason enough to not want to stay on it. The sleep is just a by-product I think...my sleep improved VERY slightly when I started taking charcoal in the middle of the night, but that was only the last 3 days on Humaworm...and when I say SLIGHTLY I mean very slightly, lol. I'm sleeping MUCH better now that I'm not taking the Humaworm. It's also possible that one of the herbs in it has a "hyper" affect on some of us.

No sign of big head syndrome yet, but if it does happen this time around, I may just quit. Like Rachel said, it may not agree with me. OR it could be producing so many toxins, my liver is having a hard time dealing. Either way, I don't need to stress my body so much. Little at the time is better for me!

I took it earlier tonight instead of right before bed. That way I can take the charcoal before bed.

I have never seen anything of interest?????

Thanks carla and kassandra.

Maybe ill drink some in the morning and at night and maybe after awhile add some in during the day. Im sensitive to lemons casue when i was pg with my second son, all he wanted me to drink was lemonade, i drank so much of it, i got gestational diabetsis with him, well that wasnt the only reason why i got gd, but it was a high contributing factor to that.

You can't put sugar in it .... just lemon and water. :)

Paula,

Definately drink more water. This is like a detox. when the candida die they put off a lot of toxins in the body. Activated charcoal, coffee enemas, sauna's, detox baths, sweating - are all good. Vitamin C, minerals, ect.

April

thanks april,

What is a good vitmain c to take? Ive been thinking about the charcoal, but need to reasearch it some. Would getting all bundled up and go for a run be a good thing. Of course when im feeling a little better. and its not -20 here? I wish we still had our whirpool tub, would that of been a good thing or would that of moved everything around inside.

Not sure on the vitamin C... I usually take 1000 mg 2x per day. You can take more when herxing. You can take 1 every hour until your stool is loose, then cut back.

Also, stevia is a good substitute if you do want your lemon water a little sweet. Sometimes I get carbonated mineral water and mix a little lime and stevia. My daughter says it tastes like sprite.

I have trouble with coffee enemas but I am still trying to get the process down! :o I need the liver detox from it. That reminds me, I need to do my castor oil packs and keep forgetting :(

I am so glad someone turned me onto the activated charcoal. I will never not have that in my home "pharmacy"!

I have even put it on my sons sting/bite and it took the pain right away. I have a good article somewhere on it. Here it is... http://www.regaininghealthnaturally.com/Cl...ed-charcoal.htm

I think a run would be a great idea. that gets your blood moving and then the sweat takes the heat off the liver for detox support. The whirlpool would be great and if you can't do epsom salts (which I think are fine for most people) then try sea salt and baking soda. Stay in there as long as you can and be sure you sweat. I sometimes put a heater in the bathroom to get it toasty in there. The sauna works great for me!

Tabasco,

reabsorbtion of toxins could definately be a possibility. Be sure you keep your elimination organs working. Lemon water on empty stomach in the am before food is good for cleansing the liver and kidneys. Also encourages the bowels. Dry skin brushing, rebounding, sweating are all good for the lymphatic system. Yeast always seem to clog my lymph.

What do you mean you scrape all that toxins off your skin? Do you really get goo off your skin? Wow - that seems like a lot of toxins coming out of your skin. Is it oil? You might benefit from doing a scrub. I usually use baking soda mixed with olive oil and make it into a paste. I do this weekly on my face to get rid of dead skin cells. You can make a lot and use this all over the body. The baking soda helps "scrub" the dead skin cells off. Before you get in the shower do the dry skin brushing then in the shower do the baking soda scrub. Wonder if that will help?

I squeeze a whole lemon into a glass of water. If I used a juicer and organic lemons, I'd use the rinds .... but I just squeeze a lemon in water.

Donna hope this works out well for you :) Are you noticing any difference with the addition of the B12 in your protocol?

I meant to mention before about the band aid reaction, this happens to me too! Even the hypo-allergenic tape I react too, it's crazy.

I don't so much itch though, I just get really red raised patches around where it has been applied.

My doctor's office uses a ball of cotton, then this no-glue self stick tape. It is very stretching tape, an 1-2 inches wide, she cuts a piece stretches it all around my arm and over the cotton ball she is holding on my arm, then it self sticks. No adhesive at all.

Berries are low in sugar. :)

You can definitely give yourself one! Just get an enema bag, lie on the bathroom floor, use lots of lubricant, hang the bag on the doorknob, and let the coffee run in! It's not hard. Have paper towels within reach and a clock that you can see so you can time 15 minutes. You might want to put on some music, time goes slowly.

LOL! Yep. I take my PDA with me and read e-books with my e-coffee. And yes, I try to do it after a BM if possible.

Be sure you get the right kind of bag. A little better quality "fountain" enema bag is much much easier than the other kind.

Jin, good to see you. Look forward to your update and sorry for all the rough days for you.

I'm hanging in there, bad cold/flu going around here and my DH is down. I think I have it mildly so far is all. Humaworm going okay so far, I agree with the different color in the BM, and a little sleeping trouble. However, this comes and goes for me. It has been better through the fall, and worse again lately. It may be following my cycles which are unpredictable at this point.

So far Ambien works though, so I am back to taking a half a regular most nights. Since the Humaworm is just a month, I am not too worried about the sleeping issue unless the Ambien stops helping.

By the way, I asked the massage lady today here what the bruised areas on my back (after the gua sha) indicated, and she said other then toxins in my system, it pointed to the lungs as a problem area.

The bruised areas haven't totally cleared yet, but in a few days I'll do another time and see what happens.

Jin,

Good to hear from you!

Paula,

Wow you DID start a lot of things all at once...any one of them can cause the body to go into panick mode. I've never smoked, but my mom and dad both did when I was small and my aunt does now and so I know it can be really hard to quit.

April,

The only thing I ever saw was some filmy looking tissuey stuff in the first few days (and once again towards the end...saw a tiny piece of it), and the rice-like stuff, which I'd seen a lot of times before the Humaworm.

My doctor's office uses a ball of cotton, then this no-glue self stick tape. It is very stretching tape, an 1-2 inches wide, she cuts a piece stretches it all around my arm and over the cotton ball she is holding on my arm, then it self sticks. No adhesive at all.

Yeah, I'll wear dark colors so even if it bleeds it won't show, lol. They use bandaids that are the most hypo-allergenic, so I'll try without anything at all this time...I'll hold the cotton ball on for a few minutes though.

By the way, I asked the massage lady today here what the bruised areas on my back (after the gua sha) indicated, and she said other then toxins in my system, it pointed to the lungs as a problem area.

Yikes!

Of course my hubby had to wake me up and talk to me at 3:30 before he went to work at 4, but i went right back to sleep and slept til 6, when my dtr woke me up and said she wasnt tired anymore lol.

Donna,

Hi All!

Just wanted to share my good news. Got my iron, B12 and folate results back today. Since taking gluten/dairy out of my diet, apparently I'm now able to absorb supplements. Yay! Not having to take the PPIs for reflux anymore is probably helping a lot too.

My ferritin's at 40 (up from 28 in July), B12's at 911, and folate's at 19.2. Woot! I don't have the old levels for the B12 and folate, but I was pretty deficient at the time according to the doc.

Thanks Donna! I'm pretty darned pleased! :D

Now if only I could get this anxiety down to a dull roar. Been psyching myself out the past few days. What if the lyme test comes back negative? Then what do I do? What if I really am being a hypochondriac? What if my body really is falling apart little by little rather than having a cause for it all?

Stuff like that.

Been trying to keep busy around the house to keep my mind off of things, but it doesn't seem to want to go away. On the bright side, the holiday chaos has been put away and I've gotten several loads of laundry done.

Did you gals get this anxiety? What did you do about it?

Well, yeah, I had a lot of anxiety I think. I was so certain that none of the testing I had done would show anything. All my friends here in Rachelville who had been tested for Lyme, had been found positive and I was so afraid that I wouldn't. ETA: not because I wanted Lyme, but because that would mean I wasn't any closer to finding out what I DID have, lol.

I think even my LLMD was surprised to see my "positive" Igenix results, lol. I KNOW I was, lol. Just keep in mind that a negative test doesn't necessarily mean you don't have it. There are all kinds of factors involved in testing of any kind.

I'd had doctor's tell me for so long that I was healthy, when I knew I wasn't, that I actually started to believe I was hypochondriac. None of THEM actually said that, but they just couldn't find anything. I know now that finding the right doctors to read the right tests is pretty important, lol.

Oh good. Its not just me then. I think I'm afraid of seeing yet another doc and yet again not having an answer.

With any luck, if my results come back negative, the doc will just call and save me the trouble of 3 hours of driving and a $15 copay. Apparently, he's done this before to other patients. I really don't want to have to deal with this guy again if I don't have to.

Paula,

I'm going to be starting the 3-day stool test as well. Fun! (ew!) Figured while I'm at it, will do the hemoccult the GI wanted me to do. Killing 2 birds with one poop?

Nyxie, was it Igenix...sorry I can't remember now. If so, post it here so we can see. If there are enough positive bands, you should see SOMEONE, lol, even if it isn't this guy. :P

Wow, lungs are a problem area huh. I'll be curious to see how this plays out.

Hope you and hubby aren't down long with the virus. :(

Great news Nyxie! I'd still try and find another LLMD somewhat near you, negative test or no. You need someone who will run lots of different tests.
