My acupuncture treatment yesterday made a big difference. I slept well, even if sleep began later than I had hoped. Of course, the fact that the treatment worked was the reason I went to bed late. I also woke up more refreshed than I’ve been in weeks.
Last week, I had Neural Therapy for the first and last time. (I can’t say whether I’d recommend it because I’m allergic to the injected substance, procaine, so I have no idea if it worked.) Two days later I started some homeopathic remedies for the intestines and digestive tract, Mundipur and Pleo Fort. It seemed to me that the following day (Saturday) my intestines started shedding. I had loose bowels once, then they went back to a reasonable texture. But there is something moving. I’ve had more gas and more frequent bowel movements and a bigger volume of released matter.
After the acupuncture treatment yesterday, I was tired all day. Then when I was resting, my bowels started again. They kept me up for an extra hour. I’ve come to realize that at moments like that, my body is clearing out a layer of toxins. Acupuncture pushed the process over the edge.
Today I attempted to catch up a bit on chores until my energy ran out. My mother commented that I seemed okay, actually quite a bit better, when I was sitting talking to her. But after the laundry, she noticed that I was totally worn out again. It is now ten minutes to eight pm and I’m exhausted. I’m having trouble breathing when I’m sitting or standing. Lying down is the only comfortable position.
I look back at the procaine allergy. Ideally, I would have interrupted the allergic response right away. Even if I didn’t, everything would be out of my system by now. It probably is. Unfortunately, my body is overtaxed between the infections and the necessary treatments. So the kind of moderate trauma I experienced last week takes a long time to bounce back from.
I tried something new today. It was a strange and disconcerting experience, but one I will repeat over and over in the days to come. I coiled my head. For any of the diseases that affect the bones or central nervous system, eventually I’ll have to coil my head.
I started with coiling my head for Candida since I know it can affect the sinuses. Though it was strange, nothing bad happened. I had the chest constriction I usually get when I coil something new. It passed even before I had a chance to get extra magnesium. In any case, I was sure to wear my ear plugs.
Candida doesn’t seem to make me Herx much, so I did 2 minutes on my head. For the other infections, I’ll start out more slowly, like 30 seconds for the first session.
- Bartonella, abdomen, 5minutes; chest, 2 minutes
- Babesia, chest, 5 minutes; liver, 5 minutes
- Candida, abdomen, 10 minutes; chest, 2 minutes; head, 2 minutes
I’ve been eating a lot of artichokes this week since they’re in season. I had 2 more today, which makes 6 fresh artichokes since Sunday. They’re very yummy. And they support liver detoxification.
- homeopathic support
- juiced greens
- skin brushing
- extra rest
- castor oil pack on liver
I slept a lot last night, once I fell asleep. I didn’t wake up until 9am. I woke up with a chill in my bones and pain in my hands and feet.
After a while on the BioMat, I was okay to start the day. I managed to do a few things around the house, most taxing was the laundry. Then I was done for the day.
My hands and wrists are bothering me. I have a generally achy feeling in all my joints and head.
Since the laundry, I’ve been very tired. My breathing is really labored again. It’s been that way for hours. I’m hoping I can fall asleep faster tonight.
