Eliminating Food Allergy/ Intolerance

images-3
Note:
 Article is LONG!

Sitting here trying not to despair for the snail’s pace today’s novel writing is turning into.

I write a paragraph then turn around and delete it five minutes later because I don’t like the way things are going.

I’ve been here before, albeit two and a half years ago, so I know it’s temporary.  I also know a music break usually gets things going in the right direction so in a few minutes I’ll put on the headphones.  In the meantime, I thought I’d post an update on my efforts to eliminate food intolerances/allergies developed after eating healthy superfoods.

I was going to wait a little longer but the results have been outstanding so I feel confident providing a preliminary update now.

Twelve days ago I decided to try using homeopathy to eliminate the remaining food intolerances.

I’d already dealt with a large number of them.

The decision to try the homeopathy came after I hit a plateau in reversing the damage done by eating “healthy” foods.

Are you kidding me?!  It was beyond irritating to discover that a healthy diet had caused so many health problems for me.

In addition to reading books on healthy eating, I’d scoured the web for information on foods rich in vitamins and minerals.  What I found was that everyone seemed to be quoting the same sources as well as each other, and all saying the same things I was reading in books written by physicians and nutritionists.  And it all spelled big time bad news for my gut and my gum health.

My road to recovery was long, difficult, and convoluted.

What I likened to riding a teeter-totter uphill – as in standing on it.

I discovered that if I drank either champagne or margaritas with a meal, I was able to better tolerate the food.

Though a number of foods were just plain off-limits thanks to the numerous intolerances and allergies I developed after eating a healthy diet.

As my digestion improved I was able to eat a wider variety of foods which led to better digestion, which led to the ability to tolerate more foods.  Then I hit a plateau.

Not particularly pleased with the way things stood, since there were still too many foods I couldn’t eat, I decided to go after the root cause.

My body had become allergic to the foods, meaning it released histamines in response to eating them.

Homeopathy to the rescue.  I’ve successfully used homeopathy for decades.

I have only had to visit a doctor once in the last fourteen years because I couldn’t get something under control.  He told me I had a virus so I should go home, rest, and drink plenty of orange juice.  Pffffffft.

However, I’d only used the remedies to deal with minor aches and pains, stomach ailments or cold symptoms.

Arnica montana, nux vomica, hepar sulph, belladonna, aconite, ferrum phos.

If the stomach issue was suspect, I added activated charcoal.

Works every time – in this house.

The trick to homeopathy, I’ve found, is to begin treatment as soon as the first symptoms appear.

At the very least, I’ve cut the sick time in half.  At best, cut it off before it develops into anything.

As I wrote in Riding the Waves: Diagnosing, Treating, and Living with EMF Sensitivity, however, when I lived in the SF Bay Area and developed EMF Sensitivity, I found that homeopathy, as well as all medications – over-the-counter and pharmaceutical – and supplements, ceased working.

Once I moved away from the Bay Area, I was again able to use homeopathy successfully.  Supplements and medications as well.

With regards to the food allergies, I decided to go after the histamine response using histaminium hydrochloricum.

I also used nux vomic and arnica montana.

I chose nux because of its powerful ability to treat digestive issues and arnica montana because of a specific symptom – and a hunch.

My way.  I chose not to follow standard dosage protocol.

I was going with my gut feeling on this.

For two days I bombarded myself with the three remedies, taking five pellets of each every couple of hours throughout the day.

I felt a little weird for about two hours the first day but nothing too terrible so I kept going.

On the third day I took two doses of four pellets.  On the fourth day I took one dose of four pellets of each remedy.

That’s it.

Sulphur.  I did take one dose of five Sulphur homeopathy pellets on the first night.  I had uncontrollable itching on my shins for the first time in years.

Uncomfortable way to confirm sulphur intolerance.

Testing testing.  Beginning the second day of homeopathic therapy, I ate foods that normally caused an allergic response.

Normal only in the past couple of years – since eating those healthy foods.

Not only have I had no problems whatsoever, I am able to eat pretty much all the foods that I’d had to give up.

Including dairy and grains.

Where to?  I’m not simply going to start eating a ton of the stuff I’d had to give up.

There is still the question of whether or not the stuff is actually good for you.  There’s plenty of evidence that grains cause more problems than their worth and there are plenty of other ways to get the nutrients they purportedly provide.

I’m also not going to eat foods I never ate anyway.

I’m simply happy to be able to eat a wider variety of foods and suffer no symptoms as a result.

The way it used to be before I ate dark leafy greens, fermented foods, coconut oil, turmeric, and a number of fruits and vegetables that were supposed to be anti-inflammatory and healing in nature. 

Odds and ends.  Early on – as in two years ago while just starting to notice the intolerances – I took caprylic acid which I think helped though I developed an allergy to turmeric** and cinnamon.

I’m not sure my approach would work for others but the methodology would probably present plenty of opportunity for healing.

Eliminate the problem food then see where you stand.  Try homeopathy though you may want to work with a professional homeopath who no doubt would disagree with the way I did it. But it worked so there ya go.

During this time I also continued with the baking soda therapy off and on, took potassium supplements, and added a b-complex vitamin which seemed to increase my tolerance for grains.

Final Note:  Pay attention to how your system is responding to what you eat and drink and any supplements you take.  Adjust as appropriate and think creatively when considering how to approach healing.

Don’t assume commonly accepted wisdom – even among the “experts” – is the right approach for you.

Good luck and be well!

Food Intolerance is NOT EMF Sensitivity

Fast-Food-Junk-Food-ThinkstockPhotos-859791694.jpgNote:  This article is long.

In September of 2014 I came to understand I developed EMF Sensitivity as a result of heavy metal and environmental poisoning I got because of living in the SF Bay Area.  I set out on an aggressive nutrition-based protocol to detoxify from the heavy metals and restore nutritional balance.  By June, 2015, I was free of EMF Sensitivity.

In October of that year I moved to a different part of the country.  Within three months I was dealing with a slew of odd health issues that did not appear to be related to EMF Sensitivity.  I can now say with complete confidence I was right.  The issue was completely different.

How It All Unraveled.  Beginning in the summer of 2015, I decided to focus on rebuilding nutritional stores that were seriously depleted as a result of the chemical toxicity.  To that end, I looked into foods that purported to be packed with vitamins and minerals.

Superfoods.

I also purchased a book on using foods to heal the immune system.

Within a short time of eating foods considered uber-healthy (superfoods) I began to develop food intolerances.

At no time did I experience a relapse of EMF Sensitivity.

I moved and continued with the healthy eating regimen.  I purchased another book about foods that heal the immune system and one on foods that are considered anti-inflammatory.  Within a short time of eating these healthy foods, my health began to seriously deteriorate.

Though I had no relapse of EMF Sensitivity!

A doctor gave me probiotics in an effort to improve my gut health.  Within days I had to quit taking them because of how sick I got from them.

Around this time we had out of town visitors which left us eating out more than normal.

Before then we’d been making homemade meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, from fresh ingredients that were often organic.

I quickly realized that I felt much better after eating restaurant food.

Which was sometimes greasy and often contained processed and/or non-organic ingredients.

We moved to a new part of the geography which allowed me to learn a great deal – in hindsight – about the effects of calcium and hard water on health and EMF Sensitivity in particular.  But it didn’t stop there.

I now realize that all those superfoods were directly responsible for my developing horrible food intolerances.

It got so bad I could barely eat anything at all.  I had to eliminate fresh fruits and vegetables, all bread and pasta, cheese and dairy.  Over time I had to eliminate salads.  I lost a LOT of weight.  Too much.

I came to see that if I drank alcohol with a meal I was able to eat more.

Alcohol is anti-inflammatory and also anti-histamine in nature.  It also helped my digestion.

Thus began my slow battle back to normalcy.  Thanks to the alcohol with dinner, I was able to eat a wider variety of foods and digest them. This meant I was absorbing more nutrients.  As my digestion improved I regained the ability to tolerate more foods which led to better digestion which led to more tolerance.

I continued to learn and now understand how everything deteriorated out of control.

I ate healthy “super” foods.

The introduction of superfoods changed my gut flora in a way that resulted in severe food intolerances and food allergies.

But no return of EMF Sensitivity!!!!

The worst culprits were fermented foods and foods considered anti-inflammatory.  Specifically

  • natural pickles
  • kefir
  • fermented butter
  • Brussels sprouts
  • cabbage

The changes caused me to develop intolerance to yams, acorn squash, potatoes, bananas, green beans, all legumes, all dairy, all butter, sourdough bread, beer, chicken, and turkey.

I never in my life had any food allergies or intolerances prior to the healthy eating.

Are you Kidding Me?  As I continued to eat healthy I developed an intolerance for all tea, as well as coffee.  I could no longer tolerate either red or white wine.

I could drink espresso, champagne, margaritas, and water.

Enough Already!  To fix the problem I quit eating all healthy foods and focused on eating pizza and restaurant food.

I also focused on rebuilding my severely depleted potassium stores through supplementation since I could tolerate no foods high in potassium thanks to an intolerance to sulphur.

I inched my way back to health and an ability to eat more foods.

By focusing on foods that are supposedly nutritionally empty (i.e. white bread).

So far so good.  About a week ago I decided to tackle the remaining intolerances in an unconventional way and while I’m in the middle of the protocol, I am seeing positive results after just four days.

I got the idea based on my experience approaching illness holistically.  A bit of research revealed others in other countries had had success with the methodology and though I didn’t copy their system exactly, I did draw from their reports when considering my approach.

I will be updating this site with the final results in about two weeks.

I’ll warn you, it’s a complicated protocol.  Imagine riding a teeter totter uphill and you got it.  

Stay tuned…

 

 

 

Sulphur and Itching Skin

NOTE:  This article is long.

So, listening to Nigel Stanford and getting ready to finish up Book 12 in the Metatron’s Army series.

Yes, there will be a Book 13 but I can happily say that will be the last.  Metatron’s Legacy, which is finished, takes place 20 years after and is a single title release. 

images-5To warm up the keyboard I thought I would post the latest discovery.  I have confirmed one cause of uncontrollable itching skin.

Specifically, the shins.

SF Bay Area Residents Take Note!  It is not a coincidence the individuals I have been in contact with who have inquired about the uncontrollable itching all live or lived in the SF Bay Area.

This is also the place where doctors cannot find a cause for the feeling of bugs crawling beneath the skin and have apparently told those suffering from it it’s all in their heads.  However, as I wrote in Calcium: The Old Man Mineral and Its Role in EMF Sensitivity, there’s a good chance it’s excess calcium and should be considered and investigated by having a hair mineral analysis.  I have reason to believe that women are more likely to suffer from this phenomenon if they have taken or are taking birth control pills.

Sulphur can be the cause of the horrendous itching.

Because the body has become allergic to it.

Testing was NOT Easy!!!!

In my situation, it was extremely difficult to determine what the heck was going on because the itching was short-lived and appeared to be caused by dairy.

I now understand why.  There is a “sick little relationship” between sulphur and calcium.

It was only after investigating other causal relationships with food that I was able to finally understand what the heck has been going on!  Thanks to all that healthy eating I was supposedly doing I developed an allergy to sulphur.

Fermented foods and those purported to be anti-inflammatory are – for someone who suffers from this particular intolerance – the absolute worst thing you could do for your health.

I have written about this previously.

Eating kefir, certain highly fermented cheeses, natural butter, probiotics, natural pickles, and other anti-inflammatory foods left me with an intolerance to Sulphur.

In other words an allergy that manifested as severe itching of lower legs and forearms and back of neck and some scalp.

This is exacerbated by drinking high-calc (hard) water.

The Sulphur intolerance will, if unchecked, get so bad you become intolerant to Sulphur foods, which make up a number of fruits and vegetables, as well as legumes.

In other words, healthy stuff.

The nightmare doesn’t stop there.  If you develop this intolerance, you will become sensitive to sulfites.  Sulfites are in almost all preservatives and dried foods.

Dried fruits, trail mixes.  You know, healthy stuff.

Red wine has varying degrees of sulfites so you will have trouble with some but not others.

The same of beer though champagne is not a problem, nor is tequila.

This intolerance is very easy to test for.  Simply go to the local health food store and pick up a tube of Boiron Sulphur.  It’s a homeopathic remedy.  Take 3 to 5 pellets and see if the horrendous itching starts.

If you are going to try this, have a tube of cortisol cream and/or Benadryl tablets at hand because you will suffer if you have this intolerance.

cd4c7e45a60b551c125ef5f61a3fafa8What to do if…  So let’s say your test was successful.  What do you do?  Well, you celebrate because now you know what is going on.  Does this mean you have to give up Sulphur foods forever?  Not necessarily but you do need to cut back on them in order to give your body a break.

Be aware that Sulphur causes the body to retain calcium so you should cut back on dairy as well if it appears there is a related intolerance.

You will likely have to switch from coffee to espresso.

Hey, at least you don’t have to give up caffeine!

You’ll need to play trial and error with foods and beverages while you get a handle on the situation.

I have found that the pinot noir varietal is the red I can best tolerate though champagne is hands down the best.  It helps the body digest food and get rid of excess calcium – and there are no problematic sulfites to worry about. 

How the intolerance happens is fairly straight forward.  Thanks to sulfites being in about everything (it’s a preservative) we are inundated with Sulphur from a number of sources, whether you shop on the outer edges of the grocery store or in the middle aisles.

Because Sulphur causes the body to retain more calcium, if you are taking calcium supplements, consuming a lot of calcium rich foods, and drinking hard water, you are adding insult to a very nasty food intolerance injury.

There is hope!  It would be worthwhile making a list of foods you have trouble with and see if you don’t find a pattern.

It was how I identified the problem with Sulphur.

After eliminating the offending foods for a length of time, you can try to reintroduce them as “once in awhile” foods.

For more on this I suggest reading up on elimination and immune healing diets but beware – almost all of them tell you to eat anti-inflammatory foods which are the major source of the problem.  It was following this type of “healthy” eating that led to trouble for me.

The trick is to allow your body to heal by giving it a rest from this nutrient.  The inflammation will reduce and eventually disappear once you stop ingesting the foods and beverages that are causing it!

In this case – foods and beverages high in Sulphur and/or sulfites. 

Not all dairy will be a problem.  I can have provolone cheese with no issue.  Soft cheeses and those high in vitamin K (again considered healthy) are the worst for me and may be for you.

Grains are a big time problem.  And those such as sourdough which are supposedly okay, are the worst offenders.

I suspect it’s because of the fermentation process involved in making it.

Pay attention to what you eat and drink and how your body reacts.  It takes some sleuthing but you can figure it out and once you know what you’re dealing with, you can put a strategy in place to fix the situation.

The most important step is to stop ingesting whatever is causing the problem.  It is the very first step and the most important.

Be well!

Now, back to book 12 – which doesn’t yet have a title though it’s almost finished.

Bind:  Book 9 in the series is available for pre-order and will be available February 1, 2019.

Potassium for Yellow Nails

10851915-two-celebration-champagne-glasses-and-confettiFor years I’ve known that one cause of yellow crumbling nails is excess calcium/low potassium and while I took a rather circuitous route to healing mine, I have just confirmed the overall protocol works for others.

For me, champagne played a huge role in reversing the damage.  Champagne does an excellent job helping the body deal with excess calcium.

The  individual who needed help does not drink alcohol, so champagne was out.  The individual also likes a lot of the foods I had already eliminated so that was out as well.

I did manage to convince them to cut back on grains and dairy even if they wouldn’t eliminate them.

My advice after seeing the nails was to use topical white iodine daily and take potassium supplements once in the morning and once in the evening.

I also suggested they use a file to periodically file the top layer that was peeling off.  This was to commence after it was evident the nail beneath and the nail growing out was healthy.

The nails had been yellow and crumbling and peeling.

To jump start the treatment I also suggested using baking soda in a foot bath daily for the first week or two.

Of all the treatments, the one that worked best was the potassium supplementation combined with the topical white iodine.  Progress was slow at first but after increasing the potassium dose to the degree we saw results, everything was fine.

Any individual would have to determine based on a bit of trial and error how much potassium to use.

Just as in my own situation, the nail reverted to normal.  It did not need to grow out normal.  It literally went back to normal as the protocol did its thing.

The filing was done once a week after it was evident the nail beneath the peeling layers and the nail growing out from the base were normal in color and texture.  The yellow disappeared over time.

The yellow got progressively lighter until it was gone and the nail color was normal again.  The texture reverted to normal in parallel.

Note:  If you take calcium supplements then you will probably not see any progress whatsoever.  Excess calcium pushes out potassium and throws electrolytes off balance, resulting in a host of health symptoms, including yellow crumbling and peeling nails.

At least in the cases I am aware of.

Remember – this does not necessarily take months for new healthy nail to grow out.  The nail reverts to normal as the protocol works its magic.

As the potassium levels are restored.

Peeling lips is another sign of excess calcium.  Foods and beverages high in sulphur and sulphites will cause the body to accumulate more calcium, exacerbating the problem.  Potassium supplements will help but only cutting back on problem foods and beverages will allow the body to get the upper hand on these conditions.

I suspect sulphur toxicity to be the root cause of many of the gastrointestinal conditions considered “incurable.”  People who have done elimination diets and healed their immune systems can attest to the benefits of a different way of considering what we think we know.

I suggest people with psoriasis consider investigating the role of excess sulphur, sulphites, and excess calcium in their symptoms.  While hair mineral analysis is a good test, cutting back on and/or eliminating foods high in these nutrients can reveal much.

This protocol also works for teeth.  Yellow teeth are a sign of excess calcium.

Especially a yellow eye tooth.  I’ve seen many women who have a yellow eye tooth and women are more likely to take calcium supplements.  

A final thought.  While this does work, it’s good to note that patience is the key because there is a heck of a lot of trial and error though in the above case the only slow down was determining the amount of potassium they needed to take to see results.

Be well!

EMF Sensitivity – Determining Root Cause

exhausted_computer_user.pngWarning:  Long Article

I woke up at four this morning – many thoughts keeping me from sleep.  Though a number of factors contributed to this state, one that stands out is the ramifications of understanding the root cause of EMF Sensitivity.

Yes, it’s the inside outside factor and yes, it has to do with technological advancement, but not in the way most people would think.

Though technology plays a role, EMF Sensitivity has been around for decades.  Long before wifi or cellular was in play.

What I’ve come to see is how dangerous it can be to become so focused on one element that we miss what is really going on.  What we believe is the cause of our ills may not be what we think but we are so convinced, we don’t look for other possibilities.

This is one of my biggest pet peeves with scientific research. Too often, once someone fulfills the requirements of the hypothesis, they quit working.  In reality, there is often more than one answer to any question and to stop looking for other answers simply because you have one you like means you don’t have a complete picture or understanding.

What always baffled me about my own situation was that I’d spent years working in technology with no problems.  I worked for a tech company and I was constantly in data centers, laying cable, hooking up workstations and servers, storage devices, installing software, consulting, etc.  Never did I have the issues I developed after moving to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2000. And yet, I couldn’t deny that technology played a role in the symptoms.

Once I had a handle on the situation, using various remedies to alleviate and/or eliminate symptoms, I set out to understand what had changed.  Why had I become EMF Sensitive?

I discovered the link between environmental poisoning gained while living in the Bay Area and development of the sensitivity.  In detoxing the heavy metals and other toxins, I cured myself of the sensitivity. But it wasn’t enough.

It was AN answer but was it the complete answer?  No because there was more to understand and more to deal with.

Even as I moved on with my life I kept thinking back to my years working in Michigan in the tech industry. I saw a connection between what happened to me and some of the insanity I witnessed in the Metro Detroit area during the 90s.

At the dawn of the McMansion Era, I watched some awfully bizarre behavior.

I wondered what role – if any – exposure to technology had played.  Then I wondered about the role of hard water given I’d seen a number of people face health challenges after moving to homes with well water instead of Detroit city water.

I also considered the behavioral aspects of the situation.

When external changes happen, people will react to it. 

I watched people behave interestingly during the economic downturn of the early 90s.  I also saw how they behaved differently yet equally as interestingly during the economic boom of the mid-to-late 90s.

All of the chaos and confusion – working for a company going through economic trauma followed by boom times where people acted like there was no tomorrow – meant getting to the root of what was happening to people was difficult.

This doesn’t even take into consideration any personal issues people were facing.

That is truly the challenge when trying to understand what is going on when we become ill, and understanding is imperative if we want to avoid action that won’t help the situation and may even make it worse.

It’s why just going by symptoms alone is not enough.  The symptoms associated with EMF Sensitivity are often too broad and are associated with a number of health conditions.

I have always encouraged people to keep a journal and note the variables involved with their symptoms. I also suggest that they determine when it all started.  This can help you answer “What Changed?”

I can now add that it isn’t enough to answer that.  You need to know WHY that change led to a problem.

For me that meant it wasn’t enough to say, “Oh, well, I moved to the SF Bay Area.  That’s what changed.”

Not enough.  Why did I move?  What other changes took place?  New job?  New home? New environment?  New food maybe?  New food sources?

It’s imperative to consider everything because if you don’t you may end up focused on the wrong issue. Even something such as the fact the geology West of the Rockies is significantly different than the East plays a role.

Both have fault lines but the fault lines in the eastern US are older and generally deeper.  This is relevant.

Any or all of these factors can influence the health of an individual.

There are also subtleties people may not be aware of.  I recently had to find an explanation for the fact that two different parts of the country felt exactly the same to me.  The trouble was – one was at a high elevation – the other not far above sea level.  One was in the mountains, the other near water.

How did I go about finding the answer?

First, I had to accept that I was correct.  As counterintuitive as it seemed, there was a valid reason my body felt the strong parallels in the two environments.  Next I had to consider why this might be the case given how different the two areas were geologically, not to mention geographically.

After eliminating the obvious, I zeroed in on why I felt the way I did.  WHAT did I feel was the same?

The air I was breathing.  Something about it.

On the surface that didn’t make sense either.  However, when I began researching air molecules I discovered that the same properties associated with air molecules at higher elevations exist in air molecules at northern latitudes.  Though it may not seem like much it is a big deal because it has a dramatic impact on my well-being.

It has an impact on how I feel which drives my behavior.

In continually sifting through such subtle variables, I have come to understand the effects of EMFs at a far deeper level than previously.

And I had a good handle on it before.

I’ve also been able to validate all my earlier work.

  • The role of audio processing in EMF Sensitivity
  • The role of nutritional balance in EMF Sensitivity
  • The ability of the remedies I discovered to alleviate and/or eliminate symptoms of EMF Sensitivity
  • The impact of geology on EMF Sensitivity
  • The fact EMF Sensitivity is curable under most circumstances

I continue to research for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that I never again want to be that sick.  But I find that the more I understand about it the more I understand the interconnectedness of it all and that more than anything is where the focus needs to be.

More to come as I organize the information.

Ripping the Lid Off EMF Sensitivity

images-2Over the past several weeks I’ve moved to a new – rather interesting – approach to the research.  Free of the EMF Sensitivity but aware of certain dangling influences – I’ve begun ripping the lids off of the boxes in front of me as it were – pulling out the box inside and continuing.

Peeling the onion if you will – or seeing what is inside the littlest nesting doll.

I’ve pretty much narrowed down EMF Sensitivity to its fundamental component – solved that issue.

The solution is two-part.  Inside and outside.

Inside.  If our bodies have the right nutritional balance – and an absence of heavy metal toxicity – the outside issues (frequencies) do not have a negative impact

Outside.  If we are not balanced then we can use remedies to alleviate and/or eliminate the symptoms associated with the sensitivity.

Nothing I haven’t said before.

What I discovered – the root of it all – explained why I was never able to conclude whether or not  wifi and/or cellular was part of the problem.

Though Bluetooth definitely got me.

What I learned explained why wifi is not only not part of the problem, it is part of the solution.

Because it blocks other problematic frequencies.

Research Methodology.  I utilized the exact same approach as when going after EMF Sensitivity – and nailed the last of it. I am not only free of EMF Sensitivity, I am now immune to the geologic frequencies.

I drive over the fault lines without being affected at all.

I am in the process of putting this information together for release.

No, not a book.  That is more than I could take on right now.

It has not been a good time though I could say the ends justified the means.  In the process of discovery I learned how to induce a horrendous sinus migraine.

Take too much potassium in the presence of  a low pressure weather system.

The way to resolve the situation is to increase your sodium intake.

This is a repeatable experiment by the way.

Along with the repeatable misery of enduring the horrendous throbbing pain, sinur pressure, etc.

I didn’t mean to give myself the headache.  I was trying to stave off one as a matter of fact since the low-pressure system that precedes thunderstorms was making its way into my area.

The net of it is that I learned about the effect of too much potassium (too little sodium) and more about the way my body responds to changing pressure.  This led me to understand the core of the problem which led me to find a solution.

As long as storm systems roll through, pressure will change. I need to learn to live with that and I’ll be damned if I’m going to endure migraines each time.  I actually had it almost fixed.  Now that I understand more of it I will wait to see if I have resolved it or if there is still more work to do.  That I am no longer affected by geologic frequencies is promising in my opinion.

I also came to see that the longer I follow the balancing protocol the less the pressure changes impact my health and well-being.

And the external solution I discovered helps in the meantime.

Stay tuned…

To Heal- Remove the Impediments

roadblockstoleadership.jpgSitting here editing Diagonals:  Book 11 in the Metatron’s Army Series.  As I focused on the screen, I became aware of another positive change in my health.

It’s a leftover issue from the paralysis I suffered as a result of the brain hemorrhage. 

Earlier in the day, I’d become aware of it though hadn’t thought much of it at the time.

I needed to go off and do errands. 

Upon returning to the editing I again became aware of the change, and this time I paid attention to it.  After spending a few moments verifying the positive change, a thought that occurred to me previously circled back around.

I haven’t shared it before because in all honesty it makes me pretty angry when I think of it.

In spite of the fact it’s decades later, a significant amount of post-therapy healing has taken place since – and because of – detoxifying heavy metals and replenishing minerals.

Minerals that post-surgery medications depleted.

Ironically, it was my EMF research that helped me with this!

I remember when I read up on potassium and its role in muscle function, then learned that the medication I was on after the surgery for the prevention of seizures I’d never had depletes the body of potassium – which can cause seizures – I thought of all those times I was in physical and occupational therapy with people urging me – not always too gently – to “try harder” to make my muscles function again.

I truly felt I was being yelled at and I WAS accused of not trying.  AS IF!  

Making your muscles work again is kind of hard to do  when you’re missing potassium which is critical to muscle function.

There are a number of scenarios that fall into this category – post-hemhorage situations where I was being told to win a game of solitaire with only 47 cards.

The rest having been removed by medications.

I imagine the therapists were not entirely aware of the situation but it still stings to think of all the times it was implied I wasn’t trying.

Like I had a bad attitude or something.  I don’t think there was anyone in that situation more determined than me to get back to being a normal kid again.

And here I am, decades later, making significant recovery because my mineral balance has been restored.

Restoration of feeling to areas still numb, etc.

I can’t help but think of all the patients being urged to try harder – and yes, that can be good if not necessary  – and wonder how many of them are handicapped by factors totally out of their control?

I understand some medications are necessary but it sucks that a lot of those medications deplete minerals that are critical to recovery – and the patient is never told.  Worse if the patient is accused of not trying hard enough.

My hope is that this information can help others who may be facing recovery challenges.

As well as those around them.

It’s unique information and yet I think it’s important.

I don’t always know where and how to classify information like this.  It doesn’t exactly fit into a book, after all.  And I recently lost one of my research partners so I’m in a bit of a bind on how to go forward with such discoveries.

I kind of wonder if the Fates aren’t sending me a message here.

I’ll continue to update as I can but I’ll admit – there isn’t an easy way forward for these dangling participles of my research world.

The information is important – I think – because it gives people perspective and allows them to put responsibility where it belongs which is not – ironically enough – necessarily on them.

These bits and pieces that I feel are important – and relevant – are just that – bits and pieces.  Where do you stuff them?

Small as they are – they matter.
