Guess what organ is mainly responsible for converting sunlight and making Vitamin D available? Yep...the liver.
>>> Vitamin D is carried in the bloodstream to the liver, where it is converted into the prohormone calcidiol. Circulating calcidiol may then be converted into calcitriol, the biologically active form of vitamin D, either in the kidneys or by monocyte-macrophages in the immune system. When synthesized by monocyte-macrophages, calcitriol acts locally as a cytokine, defending the body against microbial invaders. <<<
Liver, kidneys and gut flora
Right side, mid-back pain? Liver, too.
Yes, I know your "rib is out"...but why do you think that might be? Dr. Christopher was very clear, that there's many people that can spend 'zillions' on chiropractic treatments to never attain 'healthy alignment' because of engorged organs and lack of good nutrition....oh yes, that's right (after searching for 20 minutes), I see I've offered you that information before. PLEASE read and reread it and bookmark it:
Anne, I know you keep "asking & waiting" for a "plan from Uny" so you can 'get started' (and I've told you I'll 'get to it' as soon as I can)...but I've got dozens of people waiting for answers that have had ZERO 'information from Uny' (and don't even have a clue what a 'liver flush' is or how/where to start putting a healing protocol together). There's no reason you can't start with all the information I've given you before. I'm going to be honest here - you seem to always have 'time and money and the inclination' to go to doctors, therapists, chiropractors, have all kinds of tests and take all kinds of supplements, otcs (and sometimes pharmaceuticals), but you never seem to have 'time and money and the inclination' to get serious about cleansing your liver and juicing/juice-fasting. And I'm not the only person that's noticed (I've had a quite a few emails - some even saying "natural healing doesn't work - look at Anne_33, she's getting worse & worse...") :::insert huge 'uny sigh' here:::
Please understand, I'm only one person trying to keep up with 36-48 hours worth of requests in every 18 hour day (now with, literally, 'MONTHS WORTH' of old emails & PMs waiting). It's very exhausting and frustrating (not to mention making me feel like a failure) that I haven't had time to 'create a new Anne Plan'...but I've just got to help those with 'no information' before helping those that 'have some'.
It's your body and your decision (it never has been mine). You already know FAR more than I EVER knew when Rocky & I started walking our healing journey (we didn't have "a Uny" and had to figger it out all by ourselves).
I care about you tons & tons ---
Aw Anne honey, I'm so sorry but I'm gonna have to go with Uny on this one. I keep hoping I'll come to the forum one day and see you posting that you've started juice fasting and doing daily coffee enemas and liver flushing and bowel cleansing and kidney cleansing and EFT as many times a day as it takes for you to be able to take the herbs and do what you know you need to do to heal yourself. Oh and lets not forget plenty of Superfood and Cayenne.
Please, please, please take this post in the light it was given and that is LOVE Anne. I love you girl and I want you to get well.
First off I think I've read everything you've ever posted on the forum and that is a whole lot lol! From all that reading I can see that Uny has given you way more than one plan, she's given you several and they all start with liver flushing. However, I want to start with the following post you made 10 months ago.
Just dropping by to wish everyone a * Happy New Years *..
This is gonna be my year to get healthy and in shape and cure all my ailments ..Thanks to Uny and all the good folks on here I know pretty much what to do to heal myself now.
I wish you all the best in happiness and healing ..
To Uny and Rocky
I appreciate all that you have done for me ..I know I will need you guys help when I start on my healing path .
really looking forward to it this time ...
blessing to you both in the New Year !!
love to ALL!
Okay, so, the year is almost over honey. When are you going to start the NATURAL healing????? You said (I put it in red) you pretty much know what to do to heal yourself. What happened????
Now Anne I apologize in advance if I've got this all wrong but from reading all your posts it seems to me that you've tried everything BUT natural healing to heal yourself. And you've been getting worse and not better but still you don't do what you say you know will heal you. I ascertain from that, that you truly don't believe you can heal yourself naturally because if you did, you'd be doing it, (I'll write more about that further down in the post). I know you've tried from time to time but it didn't last because you gave up when you had a reaction, when what you should have done is keep cleansing so that your body will be able tolerate the herbs. If you would do that pretty soon you'd be tolerating more and more natural goodness!
It seems to me that you've been running around in circles trying a little of this and a little of that and you say you're doing this because you have reactions to all the herbal products but Anne, here's the deal; I think that you can't get your head wrapped around taking responsibility for your health and I don't mean that in a bad way Anne. TPTB have been brainwashing the masses for years into believing that you can't possibly heal yourself, you can only count on "doctors", those who have been to their schools and been brainwashed themselves! They want you to depend on the very profession that is the first leading cause of death Anne! Please think long and hard about this Anne because if you do you'll realize that all those tests and all those doctors have NOT helped you one tiny little bit!
If you would start small, I know that as you cleanse, your body will be better able to handle the herbs. I remember when you started juice fasting and doing liver flushes, you were able to take the Superfood in small doses without a reaction. I wonder why that was? It was because you had started cleansing your very compromised liver and your body was responding!!!!
I honestly don't know what more anyone can do Anne, you've got to DO it yourself. Sure we'll all be here to support you but you already know what to do, at least you know where to start and what to start doing. Uny has given you the answers many times but in order for it to work, you've got to DO it. Please don't continue to go in circles, that just doesn't make any sense honey. You said yourself that you KNOW what to do, but knowing and doing are two different things. I'm sure it's going to take lots of determination to overcome your fear Anne but I KNOW you can do it sweetie! But you're the one who has to do it, we can't do it for you. Believe me, I'd like nothing better than to have a place where several of us could come together and be there to encourage and help everyone through it but that just isn't doable. I remember when you posted that picture with all those herbs all over your counter, ya know, they're not doing you any good sitting there looking pretty, you've got to take them.
Do me a favor ok? Please go back and read all your questions to Uny and then read all her answers to you. If you do that you'll realize that you had your healing protocol many moons ago. You can quickly find all your posts in this forum it you'll click on one of your posts and scroll down to the bottom you'll see this:
Where it says "All Forums" click on "Natural Healing Forum" and all your posts in this forum will come right up.
I think this will be very enlightening for you Anne, to see that you've had the answers all along. The protocol hasn't changed but you have, it seems you continue to get worse doing what all the doctors tell you to do, ingesting all those poisons they peddle. Just think where you'd be health wise now if you'd done the protocol, stuck it out and went through a few of those reactions while cleansing in order to overcome them. I'd be willing to bet you'd be in a much better place right now.
I think you've come to a crossroads Anne. You know that the doctors aren't helping you so why not give natural healing a REAL chance and save your life? Because I'm really concerned that if you don't you'll end up in much worse shape. I'm not trying to scare you honey but that is the direction you're heading if you don't turn it around pretty darn quick.
I soooooo KNOW you can do this Anne, you CAN heal yourself. You just have to make up your mind and believe in it, because I'm convinced that if you don't believe you can heal yourself naturally then you won't. Bottom line, do the protocol and heal yourself!
I love you to pieces sweetie, I've said all this not to tear you down but to hopefully open your eyes to the TRUTH.
Anne, I know you keep "asking & waiting" for a "plan from Uny" so you can 'get started' (and I've told you I'll 'get to it' as soon as I can)..Yep .but I've got dozens of people waiting for answers that have had ZERO 'information from Uny' (and don't even have a clue what a 'liver flush' is or how/where to start putting a healing protocol together). There's no reason you can't start with all the information I've given you before. information is one thing ...having someone there for me to calm me down when I am having a bad reaction that I am thinking may kill me is another thing ..I just havent found the support I need to reassure me enough to move forward I'm going to be honest here - you seem to always have 'time and money and the inclination' to go to doctors, therapists, chiropractors, have all kinds of tests and take aa kinds of supplements, otcs (and sometimes pharmaceuticals),NO I really dont ..chiro visit was paid for by my MIL ..the buspar was 8 bucks ..and took away all my fears and I could do things without having a reaciton. but you never seem to have 'time and money and the inclination' to get serious about cleansing your liver and juicing/juice-fasting. thats the one of the reasons I took this job ..so I can help pay the bills before we are out on the street and to be able to get the stuff I need for natural healing .I have yet to pay the therapist but thats not even 100 bucks . And I'm not the only person that's noticed (I've had a quite a few emails - some even saying "natural healing doesn't work - look at Anne_33, she's getting worse & worse...") :::insert huge 'uny sigh' here::: so sorry for that and that is not true at all ..I have had reactions since coming off the benzo ..yes they do seem to be worse due to my phobias that I now have . noone on here has been able to help me with that so thats why I went to TALK to a therapist .. if I cannot get over the fears then I will never be able to do what I need to do to heal and thats all I was trying to do .. it is not good that I am like this and I know this ..I just wanna be better .. since I have all of these phobias it seems as if I am doomed before I even start ..please understand that I take all advice and take it too heart and somehow in my own mind I gotta make sense of it first and to somehow calm my body /mind down enough to try the very things that will help me..you know I have tried a lot of things only to have it come back and bite me ..yeah its got me running scared and I truly hate it ..the only thing I know that I can do is take the IF#2 and #1 and juice fast and throw in a liver flush in there . oh and I can do the castor oil packs too and coffee enemas ..and have done a charcoal poultice on my liver before too so yeah I do know how to do that .. and I am sure thats where I will have to start
just please understand that I am trying to gather up enough money to do this and do this right ..but my bills have got to come first or we will be out on the streets and I just cant have that ..I have had my house for 20 yrs and I aint gonna let it go into default if I have a breath in my body . I am doing this ,I am working now and trying to better myself ..I dont want any handouts from anyone ...I have never got em before and I dont expect em so me saying all this is just to let you know where I stand .. everything I buy from now on has to be with cash ....not credit cards .. yes I know I have credit in your store which I am truly thankful for from the bottom of my heart ..and I will pay them back if they will accept it or pay it forward to help someone else whichever they prefer ..that has also been on my mind and conscience ..I never meant for that to happen .. but I do feel blessed that it did ..
Please understand, I'm only one person trying to keep up with 36-48 hours worth of requests in every 18 hour day (now with, literally, 'MONTHS WORTH' of old emails & PMs waiting). It's very exhausting and frustrating (not to mention making me feel like a failure) that I haven't had time to 'create a new Anne Plan'...but I've just got to help those with 'no information' before helping those that 'have some'. I am sorry to put you in that situation Uny..I sure didnt mean too .. I understand ..I truly do .. I have cried so many times because of my reactions that I have ..it is really a crippling and terrifying thing for me .I am so trying to move forward .I really am ..please just know that I am but its just so darned hard !
Love you tons too Lady !
I have mostly had a gut feeling that supplements of one substance or another are always the wrong road to take.
The worst aspect to them, in my view, is that they have a very sneaky way of turning us away from seeing the truer picture: they do that thing that giving a lollipop to a small child does--they replace truth (or real nutriment)with some sort of false assurance that 'everything will be okay'.(At the same time, they make the recipient into a someone weak and dependant.)
I have nothing against chiropractors, yet I've come to see that nothing 'out there' is really required, if the body is allowed to attain a state of 'grace'--which in my experience is the result of some basic cleansing, and then pretty much getting out of the way! (Nourishment needs are much less for a well body than one that's being embattled daily.) I wonder if we'll see the day when people think of herbs as their food, rather than some sort of allopathic quick fix.)
The only exception to the single supplement thing that I've seen be very helpful for the short term is, say, pure vitamin E. At one time I got frostbite in one foot, and the foot actually turned black. It was a bad scene. A doctor said he thought I might have to have it amputated. hmm. yeah. I never believed in doctors much.
My mother cared for it, (and the rest of me), and mainly we put a lot of vitamin E on it, where it seemed even the bones were affected. I then ate healing things, and basically rested in a state of (connecting to a depth) trust. It reminds me of hearing Schulz's story yesterday (on the audio links)about his burned hand. Drama! Miracles!
I like to think such stuff is what we are really made of.
Anyway--this was many years ago, when I was a teenager.
I see a lot of people talking about vitamin D... and huge supplements of it. I just don't buy it...Maybe it is very old-fashioned or idealistic of me, but I still believe (regardless of all the frankenfood, frankentoxins...and the difficulty to find good, true organic food that has any REAL nutritional value), that suffering is not the Truth,
and not the inheritance either, of any of us, IF we can only turn ourselves away from all the mechanisms of the so-called 'real world', and its facts and "findings".
And ways of habitual thinking. (you mention the thoughts you have allday...)
What I hear most strongly in your post(s) is kidney issues.
(fear) Well, liver too. So perhaps one feels tugged between fear and anger (and yet, if you're like many of us, anger is not allowable--And indeed, it's one of the worst poisons we can feed OURSELVES-->>no intention to shout. This is just a very important piece of well-being, as I seeit.) So,many of us will then choose a form of catatonia,
or hypnosis, as an alternative to causing harm, through releasing buried anger--or fear.
I don't know how people here feel about EFT, or whether that's considered to be bringing something unwelcome from 'out there', or not--but I wonder if you've tried it. I also don't know how water fasting is viewed, by this forum,
so again, I might be stepping one toes here--apologies,if so. I just wanted to share that I've experienced some water fasting as part of my journey to become younger and healthier than I've ever been, and I have found both the water fasting and the EFT to be very helpful. For the liver and kidney issues. (Note: I'm not suggesting someone jump into that, and don't want to suggest it takes the place of any of the IP people are into here...)
I tend to think health is so much simpler than any of us have been taught--(It's taken me at least ten years of studying this to come to this place though!) and that it really IS about stopping doing what you've been doing that has made you sick, and starting to do more of the good--
As some wise ones have said:
You don't ask the mind that created the problem to solve the problem. (this is what we do when we continue to engage the troubled mind that endlessly needs to have more and more: assurance, or whatever.) From this, it becomes clear that what anyone needs is a serious adjustment of the inner 'dial'.
the weird part is, we can work so hard at doing nothing--(but making worry) and then, in a moment of surrender, find that all the work was a self-inflicted 'make-work-project'. It'd be funny if it weren't somehow sad. (since time is wasting) But then, you'll see that it's funny. I am SURE of this. )
I would suggest the emotional part of the whole picture is HUGE, bigger than most people acknowledge. It creates a coating over the whole being that means they actually cannot see reality, though they might see glimpses, and feel a strong, though fluctuating desire. As long as fear seems to be such a strong element in the person's sense of themselves, it's like a wall between one's self and whatever good might be able to
Speaking strictly for myself, water fasting removed a big chunk of the wall. (I should add though, that I remineralized quite a bit before doing this, and also worked on myself with meditation...) And EFT helped with overcoming some of the emotional stuff. (On my fist water fast, it calmed my early anxieties, as I let go of my former belief in food as the source of sustenance) The beauty of this is you can do it yourself. ( and you can talk it through to your heart's content) The ordinary 'talk therapy' methods, in my experience, are usually little more than (someone's) wrapping a scarf around a tree to keep it warm...a thing I did as a child, but when you look at it, in the light of adulthood, you can see that the tree needs food at the roots, and from above, and the scarf does little more than maintain a sort of dream.
a bit of uncompromising compassion for you.
