I'm very worried because my dad has gotten psedomono infection of blood. They've been putting him on antibiotics as well as saline. I looked at the saline bag today and found the writing "pH 5.5 (4.5 to 7.0)". I'm very surpised that saline solution is actually not neutral! Could the saline solution and of course the antibiotics (causing fungal growth) making him worst?
Its to bad you couldnt get him in a sitz bath ! In my line of work I am often exposed to black mold and when I feel the symptoms coming on I drink a cup of hot cayenne and get in a tub with the water as hot as I can stand, then wrap myself in covers to keep it up ! I try to raise my body temp as much as possible and it works for me ,the next day all my symptoms are gone! In the past I have been layed up for weeks because of black mold infection!
I've been suggesting the alkalizing bath to him one week before he got sick enough to go to the ER everyday because he's got an enlarged prostate pressing against his bladder and couldn't urinate. His bladder got stretched enough that the ER put in a catheter for him so that taking the alkalizing bath was out of the question. Then he got infected because the catheter was in for too long, and so goes the story :(
Ah an enlarged prostate! The colon and the prostate are seperated by only a thin membrane, toxins from the colon are easily transfered from the colon to the prostate. Is an enema possible ??? Clean the colon and the enlarged prostate may recover!
I will try to sell this idea to my dad. He's done enema when doctors prescribe it. I'll see if he would accept my explanation enough to try it. He always look at my enema kit like I'm crazy. Otherwise his doctor try to get him to either
1) take medication for long time
2) surgery to reduce size of prostate or
3) microwave his prostate to shrink it!
Wow Not a good menu of choices! Yah know they say even prostate cancer is one of the easiest to cure from a series of enemas, first to clean the colon and help detox the prostate then y also renutrifying it through the enemas! Good luck you have a serious job of trying to convince your dad if the docs don't agree with you! Try to get the point across to him that he is the most important factor in his own healing process, it all depends on his mental attitude now!(edit) I also highly recommend the Moreless drink!!!
Good luck Squarepeg! Looks like your handle is very appropriate at this time in your life!
Thank you so much for the ideas Celsius. I brought with me my mom's toasted garlic, my probiotics (5million count) and my frontier kelp to see my dad. I made him drink a glass of plain kelp and left the others on the table for him. I hope he takes it.
I also translated your message and printed out on piece of paper for him to see (he doesn't speak english), but he insisted on what the numerous doctors have said, that the procedures and surgeries are the everlasting solution to the enlarged prostate, and he kind of brushed the colonic idea aside as trivial. I insisted I'll buy him a set of enema, and he seemed to be willing to try it w/o expecting it to work. I hope when he comes home he'll try them since he always tell me that I'm not a doctor.
But again, thank you all who offer their advice :)
I can see through your eyes. I have been there so many times with those I love. I understand the doubt and the friction of trying to persuade!
So many times I have sat in the gallows while others took control!
Your love is what will save him ! I can only hope you can reach him through the haze!
At a minimum, 1st thing in morn, saliva and urine PH. Usually between meals and last time to bathroom before bed also. Additional if symptoms related to acidosis develop.
Others may not have to watch as closely. For now, unusual PH is my best early warning to up the drink. baths, and take other preventative measures. Also to analyse and see if I can figure out if one or more of my food sources is not of sufficient quality. I have been so sick for so long that I need to be really careful.
I am slowly learning which patterns mean that I am doing well, and which indicate trouble. One of the trickiest occurred when I had severe chemical exposures a while back. Immediately afterward, both saliva and urine tested very alkiline. I did not realize that I was dumping my reserves in response to the toxic stress, so did not up detox baths or the drink. Had a bad spell, but leaarned something!!!
Am realizing that a refractometer is a must, just as ML says. Going to look into one.
If you get one, I would love to hear what you think about it. I have not gotten one because I think I would be very depressed to see how sorry our foods sources really are. But I guess it would be good for my own garden to see if I need to add alkalining minerals to the soil or not. (sadly I didn't do a garden this year):(
