Try eating at least two or three large bowls of the yogurt a day; this will help in getting the flora communities started in the intestines.
Any second thoughts…anything else I can do?
James has some good ideas about staying warm, read his post again and try to follow his directions. And he’s right about the aldehyde toxins as far as chills are concerned, so you may want to try to avoid strong die-off during this period since that’s when aldehyde is at its highest level.
Also, eating often throughout the day is a good way to help the body stay warm because it raises the metabolism. Your metabolism spikes every time you eat. Eating six small meals a day is better than three larger ones.
Remember not to overeat because overeating all at one time can jump start the metabolism which would burn off extra calories that are needed to keep the body warm. It can also extinguish digestive fires which help in fending off a chill.
A little known fact about spices is the so-called “warming spices” – these are cinnamon, cloves, ginger and pepper. The spices actually help to keep the body warm. Making a hot tea of cinnamon, cloves and/or ginger is an excellent way to get the herbs into your body.
Which reminds me; I assume you’re drinking a lot of water since that’s a big plus during the treatment, but I would always warm the water before drinking it, and avoid drinking any liquid that is much cooler than the body’s temeperature.
