Can I just say f*** this sh*t?
So i finally saw a naturopath today after six months of doing the frigging merry-go-round of specialists/alternative practioners etc.
After doctors telling me to just “rest, you’ll get better”, or “your emotional state is holding you back” (there is some truth in this, but only partly!!), apparently i have other crap going on in my stomach – namely guardia, parasites, some strain of chronic fatigue/glandular fever and other stuff (I can’t be bothered to google it all right now)).
I’m also allergic to a lot of the vegetables (at the moment) on this protocol (and others).
So I would say to anyone trying to follow this without external support, GET SUPPORT.
I was pretty much diagnosing myself with candida only, and i was seeing minor improvements on this and other protocols but nowhere near recovery.
My naturopath is a bit freaked out about how low some of my nutrient levels are (which is also affecting my moods/mental state etc) and I have been setting myself back with some of the things i have been taking/eating.
As a person who is a bit too self-sufficient, this is a lesson for me.
If anyone’s in a similar situation, I would say get help (as much as you can!)May 2, 2013 at 5:40 am #103845

Interesting. I couldn’t agree with you more and am happy you are going in the right direction.

my emotional state and lack of support /will power has been holding me back for sum time . i think its a mix of noone around me understanding what im doing and will power is a bitch when the intense craving come plus in my mind i know ill actually feel better if i eat sugar ! but of course its from die off as i am suffering intense fatigue /nausea headaches along with other symptoms .
i most certainty think this protocol is easier when people around u support what your doing instead of just thinking your crazy like in my case but will power is really all thats needed in the end i think and i agree this is a major learning experience after going around in circles geting nowhere i realized its time to buckle down and just do it !no matter what comes my way !May 3, 2013 at 2:19 am #103883

Just out of curiosity, how was all that figured out if the first time you saw the naturopath was today?May 3, 2013 at 2:31 am #103884
Thanks Raster. I really don’t know how this new treatment will go but it sounds way more on the money than anything else I have heard. (I seriously can’t believe the medical profession – jesus.)
I guess my point is that our bodies are all different, we’ve had different exposure to different things and have diff weak spots, so it makes sense to get an individual diagnosis. (Rather than diagnose yourself and try all those options – which is what I have been doing.) Far out.
Hope4eva – that sucks balls, just quietly. I hope you are getting through the die off. Are you doing any liver support? I am trying to think that if i stick to diet/treatment advice it means I get better faster, which means i can eat more fun stuff (in moderation) sooner etc.
Impossible – i’m not sure what she used. I’ll find out more. But she was the only practitioner to pick up on very low nutrient levels and offer specific advice about other bugs etc in my system (rather than just vaguely agree with my suggestion that it was candida). I’ll see how it goes.May 3, 2013 at 3:03 am #103886
So this is what she uses. I’ll see how it goes but at this point it’s the best diagnosis I’ve had:
(She also does urine and saliva tests if required and some other stuff.)
This state-of-the-art, non-invasive computerised diagnostic and treatment technology measures the balances and imbalances of energy within the body. All functions of the human body are controlled by electrogmagnetic signals (EM signals). In order to determine whether your body is subject to distubances we measure your electro-magnetic energy system. According to the scale of the deviation from a balanced value, we can identify acute or toxic events, chronic illness or degeneration. This system is based on homotoxicology principals, where diseases are considered to ultimately be caused by toxins. These toxins can include chemicals, bacterial exotoxins, biological endotoxins, post-traumatic cellular debris and also by-products of the body’s own metabolic processes.
Listen System (Bio-Energetic Medicine/Electrodermal Screening)
The Listen System is a computerised program which draws upon concepts and methods used in Eastern and Western Medicine and uses Chinese Medicine knowledge, which idenfitied meridians within the body that are energy pathways. Variations from the norm can indicate if there is an energy imbalance within the body. With this system I can determine these imbalances and with this information I can determine the appropriate teatments/supplements which will stimulate the body’s energy system to rebalance and heal itself.
The energy measurements are taken with a probe that is applied to the meridian points on the hands and feet. Approximately 25-30 measurements are taken during a standard 1 hour consultation, which will include such areas as the immune and nervous systems, adrenals, liver, kidneys, skin, stomach and large and small intestines to name just a few. The energy readings are then captured on computer for analysis and provide a benchmark for measuring recovery.
The Listen Program can also perform the following:
Food Allergy Testing
Environmental and Chemical Allergy Testing
Vitamin and Mineral Anaylsis Testing for Heavy Metal, Pesticide, Chemical and Solvents
