|Some days I'm just dog tired!|
This is one of those posts that I've been dragging my feet on - which has made me drag my feet on all the fun stuff I like to blog about too!
Here's the bottom line on my detox program. I quit. Well, not totally. Sorta.
Detoxing the metals out must continue. Especially since I feel like a ticking time bomb walking around with all these metals. I'll be seeing my doctor soon to go over more natural options. Options that will take the process long and slow, but right now that's a lot better looking scenario. Here are my reasons for stopping the DMSA:
I managed to complete five DMSA cycles and things started to get a little scary for me. Pain. Very deep in my bones that I can't really explain. I just knew that it wasn't good and it didn't go away between cycles.
Dumber Than Dirt
Sigh. I'm not the same person I was when I started, but am hoping that as time goes by, things will improve.
The house was a disaster. You can't really expect a teenager to keep up the pace of maintaining a house for very long. My in-laws have helped (and continue) to run errands, pick up groceries and stuff like that. Our church family helped tremendously with meals when we needed them most, but I could never ask for help with the dirty work around here. You know, laundry, toilets and things like that. My own (extended) family has been busy with their lives and over the last year I've gotten the occasional call. Probably to make sure I was still alive!
Burn OutHusband and Daughter really had enough of not having the "normal" me. The word never came out quite like that, but the heavy sighs and mumbling when the sock drawer's been empty or meals not on time....well, enough is enough. It was time to to get back to some kind of normal.
The Good News
While I continue with periods of exhaustion, poor digestion, foggy thinking, systemic candida, periodic liver pain, leaky gut, and extreme chemical sensitivity, there is good news. The good news is, the Raynaud's is FINALLY under control. Here is it the middle of winter and my feet are almost normal. No black toes. No open sores. AND I can actually walk. EVEN walk outside! I'm still not normal, but far better than a year ago.
I've spent a considerable amount of time researching detoxing and all the methods out there and I think I've got a much better understanding of how the body's own natural detox system works....or doesn't. Currently, I'm using Bentonite Clay once daily, Chlorella, Garlic and Probiotics. I plan on using some sort of natural chelator, but in the mean time, I've been working with something that has helped tremendously.
And that. I'll share. Tomorrow!
Enjoy the day-
