Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Oh holy goodness, lol, I've been fighting dropped AOL connections, slow computer screen loads and whatnot just to see BioSET scientificness, lol, and there is none to be found, lol. J/K I can't wait to hear about the appointment. Mine is TOMORROW!!!! Yay.

Um, I can say definitely I will not be trying kombucha any time soon, lol. I'm not easily grossed out, but those are the two things that will do it every time. :lol: The mere mention of the "w" word is enough to give me squeamishness.

Some treatments have made me feel bad (short term) but most treatments have no noticeable affect on how I feel. If I feel bad its usually that I get really tired, irritable and brain-fogged. I've noticed it most after the treatments for candida and molds and when I got treated for chemicals. I felt fine after the wheat panel I had last night. It might have something to do with how much of this stuff is already in my system?? When I feel bad it usually happens right after the treatment....I can feel it when I'm driving home and sometimes I end up feeling wiped out even though I wasnt tired at all prior to the appt. I also have trouble posting my thoughts after some appts because the brain fog is too bad.

I currently have alot of issues with candida and also chemicals but I've been gluten-free for over a year and a half.....maybe that has something to do with not feeling bad after last nights treatment?? :unsure:

Hi again everyone! I hope everyone is doing well! I've been doing a little better since the first of the year, which I'm taking as a good sign...

but ANYWAYS...Rachel I got a little nervous when you described how you feel after your BioSET treatments. My BioSET lady says that I should actually feel a tiny bit BETTER after the accupressure treatments, not worse. She says if I feel off or worse, that means my body couldn't handle the treatment and we tried to clear too much at once. She says if you feel off like that, then your body might be rejecting the treatment and you'll most likely become re-sensitized. When that happens, she tells me to come straight back (which is a pain because it's a 45 minute drive) and she does the accupressure for a second time and then i have to lay down with the jar for another 15 minutes. Your lady has you lay down, right?

Its not just sugar that creates an acidic body. The highest acid-forming foods are the artificial sweeteners....(which everyone thinks is so good for them in the sugar free foods), all forms of sugar, anything hydrogenated, molasses, alcohol, apple cider vinegar, white vinegar, chocolate, jam, most canned, processed and microwaveable foods, corn meal, packaged snack foods, soda, coffee, tea, ketchup, mayonaise, mustard, ice cream, etc.

Also high are all animal protein (meats), seafood and eggs.

Except for protein, I don't eat much on that list. I have occassional lattes (with organic milk), and I have Van's waffles (sweetened with fruit juice) with my eggs instead of toast. I only use coconut oil and a tiny, tiny drizzle of maple syrup on them (less than a tsp.). Other than that, it's all meat and veggies. Very boring, no wonder I hate eating!! I must admit, the braces contribute ...

I found this about apple cider vinegar though. http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/acvinegar.html I've read similar things elsewhere. For some reason, raw apple cider vinegar is different than other vinegars.

It's suggested that Apple Cider Vinegar has such curative abilities because it causes one's pH levels to become more alkaline.

Ted, our Bangkok, Thailand contributor tells us, "Apple Cider Vinegar in itself is alkaline because of its "ash" content, which means if the apple cider vinegar was burned, what is left over becomes ash. When you check for the pH of that ash and dissolve it with water, the content is alkaline. Whenever our body digests anything, it undergoes oxidation, which is similar to burning and the end result is that you can determine whether the end product was alkaline or acid. Apple Cider Vinegar has anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties, primarily coming from the malic acid and acetic acid portion of the vinegar. Apple cider vinegar acts as a buffer in the body because the acetic acid reacts with base or acid compounds to form an acetate, therefore rendering them chemically bioavailable for the body's utilization. Additionally, Apple Cider Vinegar can reduce the toxicity of certain compounds by converting the toxin into an acetate compound, which is less toxic. This is why they are ideal for insect bites and certain skin allergies. While Apple Cider vinegar in itself is considered alkaline, a chemically pure vinegar (acetic acid) is neither acid nor basic forming as it leaves no ash as the entire portion, when burned evaporates completely. Ted"

Thanks for the link Carla.

Seems like most protein (animal and plant) is acidic and most fruit/veggies are alkaline.

Wow, thanks for the links Carla...I've been checking them out. I think I'll get some testing strips tomorrow. I've actually been eating MOSTLY acidic things, lol.

When that happens, she tells me to come straight back (which is a pain because it's a 45 minute drive) and she does the accupressure for a second time and then i have to lay down with the jar for another 15 minutes. Your lady has you lay down, right?

Yeah....I have to lay down for 15 minutes...with the jar on my stomach. They always test first to make sure my body can handle the treatment. I asked awhile back if its normal to not feel well and the lady said that alot of people feel nauseus or other symptoms while in the treatment room. She said some people get really tired afterward but then feel better later. They warned me before my chemical treatment that I may want to just go home and sleep afterwards. She said my body would be detoxing and I might not feel that great.

Whatever symptoms I get either in the treatment room or afterward ususally go away a few hours later but there have been times where I've just wanted to go straight to bed.

I only had to have the accupressure done twice in one treatment. It was because I let go of one of the jars I was holding. I was wanting to untuck my shirt so that I could put the jar on my stomach...(they always want it touching my skin). I put the jar between my legs so I could untuck my shirt and the lady was like "Noooo!!" :o

I didnt know I wasnt suppossed to let go.....we had to start all over again after that. :ph34r:

Carla...thanks for the link. :)

Looks like the little booklet that came with my test strip isnt accurate with all their info. cuz they said that ACV is acid forming. :rolleyes:

The book had said that a high alkaline reading is the same as being to acidic. Last night after my Bioset treatment I talked with Anna (Bioset lady #1) and I told her about how I'm showing up as being too alkaline.....same as the urine test I had awhile back.

I told her I read that it actually means I'm too acid. She said no...not necessarily...it *could* mean that and yes, my body *could* be too acidic and dumping ammonia to compensate but I could also be too alkaline for other reasons. Either way its not a good thing and my pH is not balanced.

She looked it up and said that bacteria is one of the things that can cause this. She said I definately have yeast and bacteria problems because it showed up in the blood test she ordered. I said I thought that yeast can only thrive in an acidic environment?? :huh:

She said yeah.....but right now I have so many different things going on that its difficult to know whats causing what. I could have yeast overgrowth and be too alkaline for another reason. She said this is why I'm a complicated case....alot of factors involved. :(

She said theres a test to check the ammonia in my body.....that would help to figure out why I'm too alkaline. She said she has to call someone to find out about the test. If it turns out my body is dumping ammonia she said that she can give me something to correct it. She says she does this with her Autistic kids because they have high levels of ammonia and it helps reduce it.

I think they might as well treat me the same as they treat the Autistic kids since I seem to have all the same problems except for the actual Autism. :huh:

No matter if the pH is too high or too low its not good conditions for the body....it needs to be neutral for good health.

Rachel-

Hmm I think I'll talk to my bioSET lady about all of that next time I see her! That's so interesting. The woman I go to seems to feel that if you feel like that in the treatment room, then your treatment should be done all over again. I'd love to talk to all the different people that practice bioSET and see what each ones' habits and beliefs are. I just find it all so interesting. People always ask me though how it works because NO ONE I talk to believes in it...and I just end up making it worse because I can't really explain it. It's just so cool.

Haha yea I had to re-treat once because I crossed my legs and apparently that's a big no-no!

I'll post about my wheat/gluten testing and treatment when I get home form work. Sorry for the delay. :(

Donna, I'm totally excited for your appt. tomorrow!! Even my mom is wanting to hear how it goes. :lol:

Oh and guess what!! gluten-free Pumpkin Pie is back at Whole Foods! I couldnt believe my eyes....there was only 3 left and I bought one. :D

Do you think they might continue to make it all year?? Is there such thing as pumpkin pie all year?? Maybe I need to call the Whole Foods gluten-free Bakehouse. :P

Everything I eat is pretty much acidic....except the apples. I only eat 5 foods so I'm thinking with all the beef, ice cream and popcorn I'm eating there is no way I'm alkaline because of my diet....thats for sure. Something else is causing those readings. :unsure:

:o:o:o Have I died and gone to heaven???!!! :lol: OMGosh! I may have to eat two before I restart my elimination diet with all the non-acidic foods I will be eating, lol. :lol:

Rachel,

You would think with what you're eating that you would be acidic. Water is alkaline though so that would help if you drink lots. :) Hurry up after work. :lol:

I'm excited about Donna's appointment as well. Why do I think tomorrow will go slower waiting for her results. :P

Don't forget, you need protein which is acidic. Lots of non-acidic veggies though, especially if you aren't eating fruit.

I think my diet tends toward the acidic side as well. I don't eat enough fruit/veggies. Especially when we are super low on funds before payday (like now) :( Five more days.

I'm getting tired being Patti. :) Been on this computer wwwaaaayyyy too much again since she can't be. Must spend a few minutes with Seth before his nap.

Yeah....they always check my legs...good thing too because I'm always crossing them. :rolleyes:

Also while they're testing they remind me not to have a cell phone on me so be careful about that too. It could probably interfere with the testing.

I trust my BioSET lady cuz she teaches other Dr.'s about BioSET and shes traveled and worked with Dr. Ellen Cutler. I figure she must know this stuff pretty well. This is her...

My body must have been soooooo unhealthy even before I broke down. :(

Yes, I was the queen of fast food, marlboro cigs, soda first thing in the morning and all day long, microwave foods, pastries and anything "convenient". How scary is that! :o

I read that microwaving food kills everything that is "good" about the food. When they do tests it shows that the vitamins, minerals and nutrients from food are greatly diminished after being microwaved. :(

Last night my mom siad its ok if I continue to microwave my ice cream because theres nothing good in there to start with. :lol:

Also...in order to neutralize one glass of soda you would need to drink 25 glasses of water to blance out the pH. :o

HOLY HECK...I literally lived off of soda....and I NEVER EVER drank water....in fact I refused to drink water because I felt that it had no "flavor". :huh:

Ummm....is it any wonder this has happened to me?? :(

Yah, but millions of people eat like that and do what we do and they are fine. Why does this happen to some of us?

My mom and I both have lots of digestive issues. My aunt (her sister) can eat anything and smokes like a fiend and yet my mom and I are always the ones who are "sick". I don't get it, lol.

That's a lot of water. I never drank a lot of soda but I did have it occassionaly. Water wouldn't have any flavor if you were used to the sugar water. :P

I think many people's bodies tend to break down over time with all the abuse heaped on it (in one form or another). Just depends on when, younger or older.

Yah, I guess. I DID used to eat lots of fast food. And, lots of high fat stuff. As a teenager I remember eating cookies or cake and milk for breakfast...not exactly healthy I guess. My mom tried to feed me healthy, but I just didn't like much. I used to never get sick...the only time I ever missed school was for painful periods...it's like this stuff just hit me all of a sudden. I wish I could be clearer on when it all happened, but it's like there was one day, before that day I was healthy, and after that day I wasn't any longer.

Probably the same reason millions of people get vaccines and are fine--and the hundreds of thousand of people who react are hastily brushed aside--just like celiacs and Lymies!

Rachel- I bet our BioSET ladies know eachother! Mine traveled with Ellen Cutler as well, and she's also based out of the bay area (I'm assuming yours is too?). That's funny, and kind of ironic.

So you guys I kind of have a random...and kind of akward question...lol...you guys can pass up the question and ignore it if you don't feel like answering, but I don't know who else to ask.

Did any of you ever lose your period? Mine has been gone for a year and a half. I know that being underweight can cause that, but I just feel like maybe there is more behind it. I mean, I dropped to 87 pounds (I'm 5'7) a while ago but I gained a lot over the past couple of months and now I'm back up to 103...but still no period. If I remember right even, I lost it BEFORE I lost the weight. But anyways...

Peace,

I know it's tied in with weight but I don't know why you would not have started again with some weight gain. I have heard of people going through a really early menopause although for some reason I think you're in your 20's. :ph34r:

Laura......where are you? Anxiously awaiting to hear how your appointment went today.

Rachel,

Know your busy writing.....can't wait to read what you have to say about your appointment.

Donna,

Only 17 hours left! :)
