Hope you're doing okay...
Just wanted to check in.
I'm still in the same boat as I was a couple of years ago.
Have days that are better than others, but overall have to survive each day as it comes, usually with a big lack of energy.
A really good book for anxiety (a big problem for me) is At Last A Life, by Paul David.
It's about letting go of control. I'd read it in the past but am re-reading at the moment.
I try to avoid researching anything with health now - I've wasted a lot of my life looking for a cure and never found it.
However, the dude who posted a video about liver flushing to cure himself has made me want to give it a try.
I'm skeptical, because after researching into it a little, there are others who have done dozens of flushes and are still in a poor state of health.
It's hard not to be bothered by the complexity of all of this.
Cannabis oil is never going to be a viable option for me and some others that post here.
I have doubts that it will be the final answer too.
Some days I feel like I'll never get out of this mess.
On others, I feel more optimistic.
For now, I'm eating as a vegetarian (though I'll have fish occasionally). I try to avoid processed foods as much as possible, but can't help but feel I should be benefiting more than I am by my dietary choices.
I plan to try a liver flush in the next few weeks, after taking some colon cleansing supplements (magnesium oxide based).
I take probiotics daily and firmly believe that our main point of focus needs to be detox pathways - Digestive system and liver support.
I've messaged the guy (James, was it?) who made the YouTube video and haven't yet heard back, so if he happens to be reading this, please get back to me.
The liver cleanse process doesn't exactly sound much fun, but what is there to lose at this stage?
I just want my health back, rather than trying to pretend everything isn't all that bad.. Because it is.
When I think about the years lost because of a fucking acne drug, it just gets to me.
I know you're against it at this stage Stefan but I thought I'd also point out that James (ManitobaMountain) was an individual who consumed large amounts of cannabis for 6 months if I remember correctly.
Also, you've disappeared off facebook. I'm hoping sh*t hasn't hit the fan...
Also anyone with gut issues who thinks the remaining problem is simply a bacterial imbalance google: 'Specific Carbohydrate Diet Yoghurt' it's a homemade yoghurt that isn't expensive nor difficult. It contains 3 billion bacteria/ml. Therefore a 500ml bowl of yoghurt is.... 1,500 billion bacteria. Compare that to your average dose of pro-biotics which is anywhere between 10 and 50 billion and they cost a hell of a lot too!
