I'm sure you've tried this, but I use fresh squeezed grapefruit. The formula says 3/4 cups per dose, but I add until it tastes good (1 1/4 - 1 1/2 cups per dose). Actually, if I could figure out a way to stop the semi-involuntary BM's, I wouldn't mind having it every morning. But that's me.... everything tastes just like chicken.
The pain started that morning when I was eating raw fruits & veggies, and drinking a lot of water with heavy doses of ACV and Cayenne. After I ate the potato, the pain died down. The two days leading up had been colons cleanse heavy ACV & Cayenne in water, and light foods. I didn't start taking the ES until about 4 hours after the pain stopped.
To be perfectly honest the Colon Cleanses
and in particular Liver Flushes
really place a drain on the body. I'm going to wait until my body comes back in synch with itself before I do another LF. I get great benefits, but right now the down side effects are exceeding the benefits. I can understand those with serious biliary problems doing the two-week regimen, but I'm not having those problems.
Maybe that is the approach to healing one's self. The Pain Threshold Theory. When the pain experienced exceeds the benefits, it is time to rest and re-evaluate. Plateau Procedure, Pulsing.....
Personally, I think there is something else going on. I'm feeling strongly that the tooth pain was pH related, but had too many things going on at the same time to isolate it. I'm going to order a bunch of the pH sticks, and start testing everyday. I'm also looking for a blood pressure gauge, but I don't think it's possible to take your own blood pressure. I can't even feel my own pulse. So I'll track some basic vital statistics, and see if there are any correlation's that could be followed up with further study.
I'm thinking about hitting the Veterans Administration up for my fillings. I did a lot of work under water pressure (diving) that has an affect upon some divers. They had replaced my fillings with something that was not sensitive to pressure changes. Either they are good fillings, or they are pure mercury I don't know. They did have to make sure they were tight and sealed over the cavities. The slightest bit of leakage could have a detrimental effect on divers at greater depths 120+ feet. I'm not sure when you started getting your barometric headaches, but I'm sort of thinking it might be related to your fillings and/or leakage around them. It will be interesting to see if they stop after they are "fixed". Something else you might try as an experiment. If a weather front is moving in, try soaking your ears to dissolve the deposits in the ear canals. Since I started OPing I've had to clean/soak my ears everyday with hydrogen peroxide to clean them out. My sinuses have cleared up also, but I get a lot of solids out my nose. So I'm thinking I have some very bad fillings and the die off is making its way through my ears and nose. If that is the case, I'm probably real lucky I don't have an abscessed brain. But then again, maybe I do.... just not that much difference between my natural state of mind, and the crazy state of mind.
