My mom is getting off prednisone herself too for polymyalgia reumatica. GREAT! Symptoms are coming back as she is almost off the steroid. That's what we would expect :( She is in her 80's and actually doing very well but is on a number of meds for different things,
B.P. medication, blood thining medication, heart medication ect.
I want to know how I can help her since she is asking me. I know the basics I'm just not sure she will undertake a serious cleanse/fast.
I was wondering what else you would suggest besides maybe colon cleansing, juicing, ect . . .There's a whole LOT we can do herbally that will may be of great benefit - what I'd need to know is just what all she's willing/able to do; and what's her current med list?; and is she willing to do the herbal 'switcheroo' on her heart/bp meds? We can bandaid her symptoms with herbs, just the same as with pharmaceuticals. And as we lose the influence of the pharmaceuticals, we can actually HEAL the heart/bp issues. As far as the polymyalgia rheumatica - yep, we can get her some relief AND some healing. The only 'complication' at this point, is that god-forsaken pharmaceutical blood thinner. If she's willing to wean off of that (using red clover & ginkgo biloba tinctures), then it's likely the heart/bp meds will be easy to get off of (with hawthorn, cayenne & garlic, basically). These herbs are a win-win-win-win-win situation. Ginkgo thins the blood, increases circulation to the head/extremities, restores memory and assists in removing arterial plaque; red clover also slightly thins the blood and the garlic/clover combo will control bp (garlic also strengthens the heart, removes arterial plaque, and has a myriad of other benefits); hawthorn (taken over time) will HEAL & restore and heart muscle...and cayenne WILL control bp, regulate circulation and help heal the heart. So if she's willing to do the 'switcheroo', she can be off the meds :)
Of course, Superfood, juicing (as much as possible) and colon cleansing are 'baseline'. For the rheumatica we'd start with a 5 day kidney cleanse so we could do a couple of "get out the hardening/stiffening/pain causing hard mineral' flushes (an easy three day process here: http://healingtools.tripod.com/kidstone.html ) while adding the Herbal Calcium and BF&C formulas. (It's safest to start with 5 day kidney cleanse before loosening up mineral/calcium deposits to flow through the kidneys) - even though the flush (above) will dissolve kidney stones. I just feel it's safer/wiser to do a 5 day cleanse before (and maybe after).
For pain relief and deep tissue healing? The Deep Tissue Repair Oil - AND White Willow bark capsules (strictly for pain relief - 'been used successfully for muscle/joint pain - and the whole/non-standardized herb does not damage the stomach and likely doesn't thin the blood). I have had VERY bad experiences with the White Willow Bark from Mountain Rose (it gave me EXCRUCIATING headaches....grrrr) (Pacific Botanicals doesn't sell powdered - I did the best to grind it in the Vitamix and encapsulize if for my mom's osteoarthritis, but I don't sell capsules). Starwest has it (wildcrafted only), but I've never sampled theirs. 3-4 White Willow Bark capsules daily will go a LONG way in lessening/eliminating the pain (it takes several hours for White Willow to 'kick in', but once it does, if you keep a stable dose coming, it's simply phenomenal for joint/muscle pain).
What say you? Chat with her and get back to me for more information to give her, or is she willing to do whatever you tell her. Either way, let me know about the 'more details' and meds, and we'll take it from there :)
Thanks You're OH so welcome - it's SUCH a blessing to be able to BE a blessing :)
p.s. I have 2 friends that are going to start the cleanse one can only do incriments since thats what her funds allow the other I believe is doing the whole thing. Neither have serious health problems they just want to cleanse and feel the best they can. I know they will want to be ordering from you. They will get some stuff from me like superfood and colon cleanse.
I may order from you for them and let them reimburse me too. I just wanted to let you know. AWESOME! Thanks for letting me know!! Any idea 'about when'? :)
Great this is encouraging. Uny this weekend on mothers day I will go to see my mom and I'm bringing my laptop to read to her exactly what you wrote. Fantastic! We will proceed from there and I will see what she is willing to do. She likes natural things but she's afraid to let of the doctors. We've had alot of talks about this. Hmmm, I understand completely - maybe you want to print this one off, too: http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1413289#i (the interview with Schulze)? Please be sure to tell you mom about the "herbs are the roof on the house" thing...if she's NOT willing to do the organ cleansing & enemas (and change her diet), we may not achieve the same level of success that we would have otherwise. But still, I've gotten several people off of heart/bp/blood thinners when they wouldn't do much else.
I read your post this morning on Dr. and Horrorspitals and it leads my into saying since I started this cleanse I got people asking left and right if I'll help them do it. I don't want to overstep bounds or act like I posses more knowledge than I do. I just know the power of this and I don't want to see people play into the "systems' conditioning". I know part of the reason I've gone through what I have is to be able to help other people. I could completely elaborate on this but not now. Hopefully, some day soon we'll have the chance to share :) You are a gifted healer - and your experience will likely make a positive difference in thousands of people's lives. Get yourself taken care of, and then the world will have another mighty warrior!
The point is I Know the basics and this can go a long ways to help people begin to feel better and regain health. I just know I'm not qualified to help people yet with specific conditions that may require things I don't know about. When I first started posting on CZ, I had FAR less knowledge than you (and I did not have the SYL manual or DVDs) - but I had common sense, a bit of understanding of the human body, truly natural healing, and the internet. And you know what? I never EVER hurt anyone...there was absolutely NOTHING I could advise that would have EVER been worse than invasive, body/energy destroying tests & procedures or liver compromising pharmaceuticals or mind/soul altering psych drugs. And whenever anybody asked me a question for which I didn't have the answer, I searched until I found the answer. Right now, you know more than I ever knew when I started...what I knew (and what you know now) is better and safer than ANY MD (and likely any ND). And on top of that...you've got ME :::grin:::: and this forum to back you up. Do NOT ever hesitate to save people from harm - just remember what will happen to them if they go to a doctor :(
I'm telling anyone who is asking me to sign on to the forum and familarize themselves with you and what we are all doing here and to READ, READ AND READ. GREAT! That'll work :)
My path is also working with the herbs. It always has been. I have a strong affinity for the plants and working with them in a sacred way. And I have completely enjoyed making the colon cleanses, teas, superfood, and some tinctures. I tried the IF#1 I made and it was so empowering to know I made this wonderful formula thats helping my body in such a powerful way. Super! It IS empowering - and it's a blessing that never stops helping others (and empowering them!) If you only could only 'see inside my heart' right now...our dream is to change & empower the world '1 person at a time'. To heal one person is fantastic, to know that I've somehow inspired another to carry the same torch? INDESCRIBABLE!
I didn't want to make this too long. I just wanted to touch base with you.
The order I placed yesterday was for "Lemonbalm Girl" she signed onto the forum last night. She has gotten some product from me but will be getting involved in the forum. The other gal will be ready to place an order probably next week. Cool deal :) Thanks for letting me know.
