A word about the Rebalancing Program I have committed to as a result of my hair mineral analysis. See blog post of 3.2.2013 re Mineral Balancing. It involves:
- Nutrition and hydration
- Targeted supplements
I have found the nutrition aspect of the program to be similar to the lifestyle change I adopted nearly two years ago regarding diet. No wheat, no corn, no dairy, no processed foods, no sugar. One change, however, is that Dr. McHaney really has discouraged me from eating fruits, aside from some occasional berries. This has been a rather big change for me because I am used to fixing a fruit drink every morning. I am also to increase my protein by 15%. That’s a little hard because under this program, I cannot eat any red meat or eggs for six months. I have never eaten much meat…a little goes a long way with me. But I do miss one of Russ’ occasional hamburgers! Sardines are highly recommended. Not a fan, but I have eaten 2 cans over the last couple weeks.
I am pleased to say that the targeted supplements are agreeing with me and that my left eye is NOT turning red. I attribute this to the emotions therapy I have been doing, however, I have not blogged about this yet. Under this rebalancing program (again, designed specifically for my unique imbalances), I am taking a multi-vitamin, a multi-mineral, fish oil, Vit D, calcium and magnesium, and kelp (iodine).
Regarding detoxification. I am taking baby-steps. It is highly recommended that I detox in a near infrared sauna everyday. Well, that is impractical, so I have settled on turning up the temperature of my far infrared biomat every day. Also recommended for detoxing are frequent coffee enemas to detox the liver. I hate to even type that. I am a bit prudish. Anyway, I am not ready for that step, so in the meantime I have booked an appointment for hydro-colon therapy on 3.27.2013. That is a first too. Again, I am not ready to blog even about that.
Lastly, rest is mandatory. I laughed out loud when I first read that I am supposed to get 10 hours of sleep a night. Impossible. I struggle to get 4-6 hours of sleep. And that 4-6 hours is always interrupted sleep. I cannot force myself to sleep. The new doctors recommend that I be in bed by 830 pm because that is in synch with my adrenals. If I miss the window, I cannot rest and repair my body. So…I am trying to comply.
