This morning I weighed 167.
I have been strictly following this diet for two weeks now. I have lost 8 pounds, and I am beginning to feel a difference in my energy level. The last 2 days I have been feeling stronger and have not had noticeable headaches. I am encouraged!
I have searched out more of the herbs suggested in the chapters that pertain to my symptoms (which includes most of the chapters), so I have a large variety of helpful herbs and foods I am using.
Some herbs I am making into tea, like a combination of anise seeds, ginseng (Chinese and American), valerian, water hyssop, red clover, licorice root, cinnamon powder, and stevia leaf. I have to say, this tea tastes delicious!
Some I am taking in capsule form, like ashwaganda, vitamin B12, herbal pumpkin, master gland formula, urinary maintenance, l-lysene, hydrangea, sage, CoQ10, VS-C, MSM, astragalus, magnesium, and rose hips.
For the most part, I am using Nature Sunshine products for the capsules, because I have them from working with a naturopath over ten ago. I never got rid of the capsules. Most of the herbs are old, but I believe in using them up before buying new. The combination capsules, like urinary maintenance, for example, have herbs in them that are recommended by the book “Medical Medium”. When I run out, I will get the herbs individually, possibly.
I am still eating the smoothies; as well as fruit — like raspberries, apples, apricots, and bananas, and supplementing with Brazil nuts and walnuts, all of which are recommended. Sometimes I want other foods but I don’t crave them. I limit myself to only the foods recommended in the book.
When I am resting my body feels like it is vibrating at a finer lever, and not at a gross level like I feel when I am sick.
I will post only occasionally about this from now on — especially when I feel I’ve made breakthroughs. I intend to continue this way of eating for at least 40 days, and very probably longer.
