    Hello All,

    I’m onto week 5 now. Last week was mixed, Monday – Thursday I had muscle and joint pain in my legs, possibly following starting up the anti-fungals again combined with a short yoga practice at the weekend before. Other symptoms were muscle twitches at the start of the week and on Friday morning a sore stomach / ‘very hungry’ feeling. On the bright side, Saturday and Sunday were very good days, I was out and about a lot and did yoga on Saturday and Tai Chi on Sunday.

    Here was my diet (link to my detailed log if anyone is interested http://bit.ly/YOFpk6):

    – 1400 Pau D’Arco tea and Coconut Oil

    News / Plans

    • I realise I have still beef and lamb in there, been difficult for me to stick to chicken
    • I’ve ordered Kefir, waiting on it to arrive
    • I switched my toothpaste to a natural one
    • I’ve purchased Milk Thistle as I couldn’t find Molybdenum and wanted some liver support
    • I realise i’m not totally aligned with the protocol yet, but I just want to finish off the vitamins / supplements I’ve already invested in.
    • Last night I made a batch of Beiler Broth and also a loaf of coconut flour for week 5

    I think I’m on the road to giving my body what it needs to heal, so I’m now focusing a lot on positive mindset and ‘believing’ I’m not ill. I think the placebo effect proves that the mind is a big factor in healing. To help with that I’m putting plenty of social activities into my calendar, light exercise and a few ideas/practices I picked up from different books and films like meditation, visioning, gratitude, watching comedy etc.

    I also ordered a few books,

    Any tips or advice appreciated 🙂

    It sounds like you could use some more vegetables in there. 🙂 I have this same problem. I know you have a salad every day, but you should try to get more variety and just generally more veggies. Sounds like you are doing well though, you noticing an improvement in the way you feel?
