I too asked this question here a couple of times. I was clear and straight in my question about how can people claim to be cured when they can’t eat the same way their family does?
But, I never get a straight/clear answer to this.
All I get in response is a lengthy/confusing post, which we get bored just reading, forget responding to it.
What dvjorge says is right, you need to get you immune system back on track with those antigenic shots. With out doing that, even if you stay on the strictest protocol mentioned here for years, I don’t think it will help you. All you will end up is loosing all your weight, and looking like a patient.
I followed the strict protocol here for 4-6 months, and I ended up loosing 20 pounds, and it was even difficult to walk and speak to others at some points. I was getting weak due to lack of energy. But my symptoms were not clearing.
Then I tried clarifying here by asking here if anyone had really got completely cured by that protocol. I never got a clear YES.
Then I shot back to the diet mentioned on the website, and starting doing enema, and neti (sinus cleanse). This seems better to me, I see symptoms clearing, and also I am using nystatin from the last week, though the doctor gave me a low dosage, which is not sufficient according to Dr. Truss, I am happy that I started on that, I will try to convince my doctor to increase the dosage, and also discuss with him about the antigenic shots.
I clearly see the difference now,
In my opinion its better to follow the diet on the website (so that you have some energy to live/ time to work/earn a living), and also take the measures dvjorge is mentioning.
