Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

I've been listening to German tapes for my upcoming trip to Germany. Adam thinks is funny .... he says it's not normal to try to learn a language when you are only spending three weeks there! Well, I don't plan on learning it, I just want to know some basic phrases. "Where is the toilet?" would have come in quite handy when we were in Russia, LOL.

I'm the same way. I went to Costa Rica for 8 days and really wanted to learn some Spanish before I went. Then I tried to keep up what I learned when I got back.

Lisa,

Is the house moldy? Or could it be dust mites?

That sounds strange about the mercury......That is one of the juices that the kids drink. The ND wanted them to have a high antioxidant type juice during any detox.

Andrea,

You and the kids take King Chlorella - right? So, how do you get the kids to take it. Is it chewable or a capsule?.

I just bought some chlorella and want the kids to start taking it along with me... Its in a capsule, so I'll have to dump it out in their mouths. Thats the only way I know to do it.

Paula,

I only have 2 kids (seems small next to 5!!) and it does seem to get very busy when their in school.

My little 4 year old started pre-k this week. He had a complete meltdown on day 3.

I really hope he adjusts because I need this to work AND I think it will be good for him to learn some independence.

We have the tablets that are chewable.....although they taste awful to me. My youngest chews them, my oldest swallows them. The middle child isn't on Chlorella.....he's on Colon + caps.

When we had LED's done and didn't have the extra chlorella with us our youngest was given a capsule that was poured in his mouth.

Haha Nora, I'm just not seeing any similarities between German and English, ROFL! I'm sure they're there, but I haven't learned enough to find them yet.

It's helping that I speak Spanish .... not in the sense that Spanish would help me learn Italian because they're similar, but in the sense that I know how to think in a foreign language. The thing is, I'm finding if I don't know the word in German I throw in the Spanish equivalent! :lol: I'm up to lesson 5 on my tape. :) LONG way to go.

That's funny April, about the Spanish. Good for you. :)

Can anyone see why I can relate to McCain's pick for VP running mate? :P

Carla my friend has been in Germany about 3 months now and still doesnt know any German. :P Just some basic words....like "thank you" and "please".

Suppossedly its alot different from English and harder to learn than spanish.

I'm pretty sure that I wont learn ANY German before, during or after my trip. :lol:B)

I think my friend needs to at least learn how to find a toilet before I get there. :lol:

I think it would be harder to learn than Spanish if I were trying to learn anymore than basic conversation, LOL.

The harder part is the casus system, but german has fewer casuses than spanish, only four.....the sentence structure is not so difficult.............I guess what you need most is just the vocabulary. Like toilet. I usually need some days to switch over to german, not minutes. I have no problems reading it. (but sometimes they manage to write complicated sentences and they use combinations of words that mean something else, or nothing I understand....<i rew up in Vienna and we used a dialect and it was not so complicated. We even had a cellar below the cellar where they hid during the war, especially when they were in the russian zone as the russians were absolutely uncivilised.....you probably heard about other aspects of cellars in Austria the last years.......)

I stumbled across a website for people avoiding salicylates and more things, I have not read it yet:

and, something else on another forum about serotonin and other stuff:

Just caught up reading, have arrived on this side and travel home by bus tomorrow;

I restarted Zith on Saturday (had to pick it up because I had put my supply in storage at my son"s) and whoah! Feels like a mjor herx, I feel totally wiped and low grade fever. My son and family had the flu last week so I was exposed but all of the and my son's MIL had nausea and vomiting as their only symptom. I don't have that at all. So I think herx....

Hopefully after this the joint pain and muscle pain will improve.

Dear Everyone,

I just realized how long it had been since I posted! The last page I was on was 2106, but I posted on 2115. It was a quick update. I am trying to balance everything, but so far I am doing a terrible job of it. Trying to figure out how to get my business going is monopolizing my time.

Mom was gone up until Saturday. Dart was doing alright up until late last week, and then he became ill. He was not eating, and his stomach was having all sorts of trouble. Naturally, I thought he had a hairball again. Aunt Nancy came and took him to the vet Saturday morning. It turned out he had no blockage, but was given an antibiotic and anti-nausea medication. Our little boy is now back to his old self already! Another thing that likely added to the trouble was Dart was upset over the new bunny.

I have been cuddling him more and hand-feeding him so he will eat. His little backbone is so obvious now. Meanwhile, during all of this was another issue. Boomer got out of his cage, and was hopping around my room. Dad and I had to chase him out from under the bed, then we had to put screen over the holes in the lid with duct tape. Unfortunately, Dad put it on the inside. Guess who got back out?

Boomer is also biting a lot lately. I am not sure if it is teething, or something else. He is stubborn, for sure. I am beginning to think there might be a reason he was in that cage by himself. I am trying to get him some little toys to chew and play with.

Healthwise, the stress certainly did not help any. It is amazing how I felt better when Mom and Dad were not here. Just knowing they were on their way home made me feel sick. This shows that their negative energy is harming me. Not only that, but it is bad enough that they have so much control over my life as it is, but now I cannot even look like myself.

I look too Asian for this hair. I look just like my great-grandmother, who was not blonde either. The other day, Mom flipped out when I mentioned it. She said "Well, I am not dying it back. You look how you are supposed to look. You are not your grandmother!" What does she mean how I am supposed to look? She means how she wants me to look. I confronted her, and told her she is racist.

She admitted it, and I was annoyed. I am not her freakin' Barbie Doll where she can just dress me up and do my hair however she wants. I can understand being upset about the cost of the entire thing, but I had told her before I would try it, and dye it back if I did not like it. She said I could, and now of course, she has changed her mind. I told her, I need to be me, and look like I feel I need to look. A lot of other people absolutely hated my hair the way it was, but part of that I think was because everyone is trying to make me into someone else.

Sincerely,

Jin

I think it is quiet here becaue people ar busy, and according to the finnish numerology lady the year starts in september. New things, moving, start of school, start of business, start of anything.

My siter and her daughter moved too.

I signed up for some courses in graphic design etc.

I am back to a lower carb diet, like the one Karen Tripp has on her candida pages, she writes max 50 grams, and no sugar or fruit. I have fewer sweet cravings that way too. I kept going through my cupboards and drawers in teh afternoon to grab anything edible without gluten and milk. Now I just grab an egg or a carrot.

She might even pull down her pages from the internet sooner or later she writes, since some people have criticised her and said she makes money off it.....I think she does not make a lot of money (she has a link to amazon where she gets a few dollars a month) http://www.geocities.com/HotSprings/4966/index.html She has a lot of other interesting links on her pages too, like the one on c.pneumoniae (cpnhelp)

She is all for muscle testing, she finds it more accrate than other testing. She has a page on that.

The plantspoisons etc website on page three has some things on autism and methylation and the genes involved: http://blog.plantpoisonsandrottenstuff.info/page/3/

Jin, I'm sorry your new look hasn't been very satisfying. You seemed very excited about it before when you were going through the steps. Too bad it has become another area of conflict for you.

Yes things have been quiet. I've been glad because I have been too busy to get here to read very much. I had to reinstall everything again on my computer due to a software problem, so am still getting it up and working.

I am finally home and am over my herx today, so am feeling quite well. The muscle and joint soreness is also better.

While traveling over the past 5 days I didn't have a lot that I could eat, just some nut flour muffins I had with me, and a little meat from the gluten-free meal on the plane. When I arrived at my office, I was so sick with the herx I couldn't cook. I could hardly get out of bed that day. I only had the muffins which I was tired of, and finally boiled a tiny amount of hamburger left in the freezer to make a soup. Yesterday I traveled by bus half the day again without food, and last night when I got home only had some applesauce I had in the freezer. I started my yogurt and made soup but it wasn't ready to eat right away. All that to say, I was especially not feeding the intestinal freeloaders during these days...

Today I passed more worms, even after being off Enula for about 5 days since I restarted Zith. So I think the diet is a very significant reason why I am getting rid of parasites and confirms that I am on the right track.

I'll be switching between Zith and Enula on a two week cycle; it will be interesting to see what happens.

Further comments on the SCD:

I'm also really pleased with my weight loss on this diet; it continues what started on gluten-free but has been quicker on SCD. I'm down a whole size or more from when I went to the US the end of June. Not that everyone would lose on this, but I am very carbohydrate sensitive as far as weight goes.

Donna, I was thinking about your struggle with getting back on your candida diet. I can relate; I've known I needed to be on a low carb or candida diet but just couldn't keep myself on those restrictions. I think it was the lab tests showing I couldn't digest carbs that did it for me as I realized it could be behind a lot of my problems. Also my doctor put me on the diet rather than me deciding I should, etc. Honestly I'm not quite sure why this has just kicked in but I am being very faithful to my diet and enjoying the benefits.

Also, on the SCD I saw immediate positive changes after the first 5-7 days when I was having die off type stuff. Two main areas of change are much improved energy/less brain fog, and much better BMs. That's helped me stay with it. I have been very careful to do the stages, 5 days of intro plus very gradual adding of things to the diet. I am still not doing raw, seeds, beans, etc.

Finally, I've been able to find "legal" things I really like for treats. I did a lot of honey right at first, now have scaled back. The yogurt with honey on some fruit has really satisfied the desire for a sweet, and the nut muffins are very good--better than those made with gluten-free flours. The muffins satisfy the desire for something bread-like and filling. I made the SCD cheesecake a couple of times, etc.

Well, the class action suit is about beds made before 2005 so a new one would have the mold resistant foam. That's what the lawsuit is about, that they allegedly KNEW the mattresses would get moldy.

Sherry,

I'm glad the diet is going so well for you. I don't know how you made it through the travels without much to eat though! I'm still wondering how to survive without grains to help fill me up. :P

Carla,

That's awful about your bed!

Oh i know it is the ones from before 2005, im just leery of trusting an company that made the matresses before knowing there would be mold. I am not one to trust companies that have lied in the past, no matter what they promise now.

Hello everyone! It's been a while since I posted. I started the bart med and I also got my period at the same time, so I've been pretty sick.

Anyway, I went to that "specialist" at UCLA...the supposed best Hematologist there. What a waste of time!!!!! :angry: The second he saw Lyme Disease on the papers, he was totally disinterested. He said that it is all related to my heavy periods. I asked him why my iron dropped just as low when I hadn't had my period for 6 months and he said "well, I haven't seen all of your bloodwork, so I don't know." He was totally implying I didn't know what I was talking about...he's wrong!

So now we're back at square one. Dr H and Dr B have never seen anything like this...those are their exact words. I am so disappointed in all Dr's right now. I had a tiny ray of hope that this Dr today would have some clue, but he had NO idea. Ughhhh!!!!

That's pretty much it. Sorry to be so down about this, I'm just SO over all of this.
