I have to tell you this, just because I almost started laughing when the Alternative Medicine Dr. retested me yesterday and put me on more different things..Gosh, who had I already heard about Premier Research Parastat from? And Flax seeds, not the oil.
I have a question on that one though- he told us to crush up the flax seeds, put them in a little water, boil them for just a minute, and drink the water off of them- and then eat them. This is a dumb question, this is all new to us. So, we went to the Health Food store, and the lady asked us if we wanted the ground flax seeds, or if we wanted to grind them ourselves? How do you grind them? We probably should have bought the already ground ones? So, we came home, put some in water and boiled them a little bit, drank the juice, and ate the whole seeds..is that not a good idea? I just think of friends I know that have been hospitalized with diverticulitis that avoid anything with small seeds in it.
AND is there any difference between Flax, and Golden Flax?
I had told him that I wanted to be tested for adrenal fatigue, which I had told him before, but with everything else I've been doing he thought it best to just concentrate on a few things at once. But, this time, he tested me and my thyroid and hypothalmus tested very weak, he put me on Thyrostim, and Cytozyme-PT/HPT from Biotics Research Corp.
And, Premier Research Labs Quantum Gallbladder complex, even though there's no gallbladder, he said for the bile ducts...and, the ox bile that he says will be for life without a gallbladder.
I had started taking coconut oil a couple of days ago- still passing worms, the last couple of days it was ascarids. You're right, they live in "neighborhoods" and "colonies", it's pretty weird how you can get a totally different kill of a different type of parasite every few days.
He told me that he would not normally add as much to what I'm doing, but because of the distance involved, and because he knows I'm motivated and disciplined, (and don't work, can stay at home, which helps tremendously!) that he thinks I would be one to not get discouraged and overwhelmed by it all, and won't quit as alot of people do.
I'm off of the herbal dewormers that contain the wormwood, walnut and cloves that I've been on for 2 months, and am doing the India herbs, the Parastat, and Neem, and alternating with ParaCleanse, which are India herbs too. He said Neem works well for antibacterial too, and we also got collodial silver.
I have some more questions on it, but I'll post them in it's own thread.
You and my Dr. have the same thought patterns. He said the exact same thing that Dr. Sutter just said about healing the body- that it's not "treating disease".
I'm hoping what he gave for treating the adrenals will help with the fatigue, I'm sure it will. The book I'm reading by James Wilson "Adrenal Fatigue, The 21st Century Stress Syndrome" has an exercise in it to try to think back to when you felt good...well..I honestly can't remember. I know it was even prior to having twin babies I nursed that never slept for at least their first year through the night! They will be 24 in 3 days. It's been stress upon stress for years, and always fatigued- antidepressants for about 10 years--not treating the core problem, as Dr. Sutter talks about, just masking what was really taking place.
But, the good news is...I'm killing the bugs, eating healthier, drinking distilled water, and getting things cleansed, and starting to get the liver unplugged and functioning like it's supposed to. I may not be where I want to be yet..but I'm a whole lot better off than I was...and moving forward to healthy.
Flax seeds are HIGHLY unstable. Never buy pre-ground (imo). They are very soft and easily grind in a few seconds using a coffee grinder. I like the blond seeds myself. When travelling I bring the flax seeds and the small coffee grinder with me. I never heat them in any way. I always consume them raw but do not have a sensitive colon. However there may be a good reason to heat them. Your doc seems to be steering you in the right direction.
Have him test the para-Thyroid next time. The pThyroid regulates the thyroid. It is the gatekeeper. Just as the adrenals guard kidneys and the Gb controls the liver. Each organ has its own gatekeeper. If the pThyroid is 'off' then you will need to wait before treating the Thyroid as the pThyroid is blocking the thyroid. Few know about this.
The Parastat only affects the microbes in the small intestine. There is a different product for the big critters that get into the liver and pancreas areas. What Parastat does is stop the bugs that cause diarrhea. The Holarrhena Anti-dysenterica being the primary ingredient. That is its main function. To clean up the smaller micobes that may have been hosted by the flukes etc.
The Adaptogen, Gold-360 and the Adrenal Complex would be great for you. I make an almond milk latte (yum!) with the Gold-360 which is a classic blend of herbs in a honey base from the Indian Chyvanaprash and ancient Korean longevity formulas. And its all organic and non-irradiated. My Gold Latte recipe is out of this world. All of these products will rebuild your hormones which is essential to regain health.
Put the Neem oil in your mouth while OPing. Just put a few drops on a spoon, add the oil and swish that. Will heal the mouth like no other. Swallowing the Neem is good too. American pharma companies went to India and tried to patent the Neem tree. The ENTIRE tree!!!! The Indian government went ballistic. So big pharma knows really well about Neem.
The Cordyceps will rebuild the adrenals. It is what the Russian and Chinese athletes live on. It is proved to regenerate the adrenals. Get some asap.
Many anti-Depressants are made with fluoride bases. Flouride is a very harmful neurotoxin and ruins the thyroid. Use boron to expel the toxic imbedded flourides from anti depressants.
There is a direct link between the Thyroid and Adrenals so they must be treated together as rule. A stressed Thyroid makes the Adrenals over work which drags them down.
For energy get yourself some purple Dulse whole leaf. (Hopefully you like it). Eat an ounce of that in one day and you will be shooting through the ceiling. Hah! That is a REAL power food imo. I eat it right out of the bag and always take it when travelling. It is my main food supply and has fiber, raw nutrients, protein, B12, B6, minerals and iodine par excellence. Some do not like sea products. I feel sorry for them-but more for me. (smile)
There are so many new things I've never heard of, it takes me reading and re-reading your posts several different times to try to absorb the information. Thanks Azurite!
So, the Adaptagen, Gold-360, and Adrenal Complex you recommended, does that strengthen all the adrenals? Would it be something a person, like my 20 year old son, could take because of the tiring work schedule he has with his job working for a gold mine? It's 12-15 hour days, 3 day shifts, a few days off- then 3 graveyard shifts- etc etc, finally, 7 days off in a row, and then it starts all over again. He called last night, and was sick, again, but he won't take time off of work, he'll keep pushing- plus he puts in for overtime alot too. It's alot of money for a 20 year old kid to be making- $25 an hour, over time on holidays is double time and 1/2, but at what price? He lives on tv dinners, fast foods, and "energy drinks".
The Alt. Med Dr. tested 2 spots between my eyes. It's hard to understand alot of times what he is testing for- would that have been parathyroid? Apparently, what he put me on is for pituatary, hypothalmus, and thyroid. I probably still should do the saliva test too?
For the first time in as long as I can remember- I DON'T HAVE SORE SPOTS, which I know were the "bugs" attached to me. YAY! I definetly am making progress. I'm sure I have building blocks to do in getting the immune system, adrenals, lymphatic etc strengthened- and keeping after the liver in getting it healthy.
You have a wealth of information Azurite- sometimes it's just hard to sort through it all, things sound foreign. I hadn't known about the flourides with the anti-depressants either, I just knew they hadn't been a positive thing- just a mask. Thankfully, I made up my mind when I was going through the gallbladder surgery recovery- that it was a good time while I was healing, to get off of the darned anti-depressants too! Paxil and Zoloft. Come to find out later- Paxil does cause problems when you try to get off of it! No more anti-depressants for me, ever! Thanks for everyone's help in getting to the CORE issues, and getting on to over all health!
Jessesmom-Glad there is some value for you. You have a way of bringing me out of my shell. LOL!
Adaptogen is for all the hormones in the body as it regulates the brain, pituitary and pineal. The herbs in that formula are some of the sacred herbs of the east etc. The eyebrow midpoint is the main spot for testing that and the two recommended products are Gold-360 and Adaptogen. The Gold-360 is an ancient formula used by yogis of the east plus a Korean rejuvenation blend kept secret or a long time.
The Gold is in a thick black tar that is sweet. It combines the herbal blend and some mineral substances like Shilajit and the black goo is usually put into a glass of hot water or even green tea and sipped. I am not big on sugar personally so found a way to make an almond milk that has soaked almonds, lecithin, a few walnut halves with some maple syrup and organic vanilla extract. The almond milk alone is wonderful and nourishing but adding the Gold extract is a home run! It looks and tastes like an exotic latte- a lovely taste and texture.
The Adrenal Complex is a combination of the finest Cordyceps mushrooms proven in clinical tests to have superior performance for rebuilding the adrenal glands. wow! This is some great herb. Athletes love this stuff.
Your son could have a number of things going on. No telling what to offer there. Here is a partial list not knowing much about him: Get sunshine, keep the bowels open, eat fiber foods like oat muesli with ground flax seed added which gives energy for hours at a time, do yoga or Chi Gung on days off in the sunshine, eat super foods like Dulse, chlorella, spirulina, bee pollen, drink Polar Mins water-reconstituted sea water from the Antartica, stay hydrated (with fibers-will hold moisture), eat dandelions sauteed with onions and other dark greens, take cold showers twice a day, take B vitamins. Stay away from coffee and tea and sugar. Does he have bad skin ever? Pimples? A sign of detox issues. Bags under eyes are adrenals/kidney as a rule. Get good sleep. Regulate the rhythm as best as possible during time off. Meditate. Lots of options here. The list is long.
Hope that helps. I will be away to Texas for a seminar on advanced Vastu techniques this weekend and more esoteric insights from Dr Marshall and his wife (who I have not met). I am looking forward to this next level of learning.
I was once in the gold mines up in the mountains of the Philippines when I lived there (near Baguio). I also did some work inside of the talcum powder mines near Woodstock, VT.
The conditions in these places are highly toxic in my opinion. State regulations are probably stringent regarding the working conditions but your son could be exposed to hazardous gases and such. No telling what noxious materials he is dealing with.
If he does not improve through diet and detox (parasites, flushes etc) and proper rest and recreation then maybe have him tested for heavy metal or toxin exposure? Just a thought. Some of these poisons can really take down the adrenals/kidneys and nutritional support simply would not be enough to combat any toxic exposure.
You are a wealth of information Azurite, thanks for your time in replying too.
BTW, you know about the Premier Lab's line..WHAT is IN this Quantum Gallbladder Complex that smells so bad? Pee eww! He has me on it, with no gallbladder, for the bile ducts. Is this mushroom? Reishi, whole and fermented mycelial extract- actually it names a few things that are fermented mycelial extract at the top of the ingredients list.
Also, are you familiar with Chinese medicine, Worm Oil, the actual oil for parasites? He has me putting it in a capsule, 5 drops at bedtime, and I can tell as soon as the capsule has dissolved enough to let the oil out- it's a warm spot that starts radiating out.
The last two days, since starting the new homeopathic for the liver, and starting the thyroid, hypothalmus, pituatary stuff, I've been more exhausted than I had been. I've been laying down with a castor oil pack and heating pad on my abdomen and falling sound asleep in the afternoon. My body must be readjusting.
Have a good trip to Texas, and have fun learning more!
