Hello, Mike. The answers to your concerns are below.
1. Should I assume my cleanse wasn’t effective?
Reply: I thoroughly believe in leaving the past in its place; forget about the cleanse and any consequences it may have presented and instead concentrate on ‘now’ and following the protocol.
2. I’ve ordered the Grape Bitters and it just arrived, when should I start with this, is it too soon?
Reply: No, it’s not too soon as the bitters act as a cleansing and flushing agent in your body, especially the liver which probably needs cleansing as much as your intestines. What’s the brand name of yours?
3. I’m having MAJOR MAJOR coffee withdrawals, Huge headache and finding it very hard to work, I work 10-12 hours on the computer a day and Coffee is absolutely the hardest thing for me, more than food. Is there anyway to slowly ween down from this (im on 5 days of no coffee cold turkey)…Will having a cup of black coffee really set me back?
Reply: Coffee is something that I do not recommend stopping all at one time as this can only make you feel worse than you already are. In the beginning, you should try lowering the quantity you normally have to 1/2 the amount for the first four days, then cut that amount in half. After a while, you can occasionally try to leave it out of your diet, but if you receive the headaches from withdrawal, have a few swallows to settle the reactions. Eventually you will be able to cut it out completely, but please don’t try to do so all at one time.
4. Is there ANYTHING I’m missing? I am following the protocol Able has linked to me so I will not start an antifungal for 2 weeks.
Reply: This sounds great to me, just let us know if you run into any road blocks or have other questions, someone is always here to help you through this.
Congratulations on your decision to start the protocol.
