Let me first say how much I respect you and am so honored that you would come by and say hello! I first discovered you 3 years ago during some of my darkest times, and your positive messages kept me alive. I am 23 and have environmental illness, fibromyalgia, ibs and chronic yeast infections. I am allergic to all chemicals, perfumes, many foods,pets,mold,etc. Basically, my body is very toxic! Many days I would listen to your audiotapes to keep me going, and many nights before bed I would reread your catalogue and think, 'I can get well, I just have to keep trying....'. I have done some of your programs, but have had great difficulty because of my bowel condition and my highly sensitive state. This is why I am so thrilled that I can talk to you directly!
I did the bowel cleansing routine about two years ago and it was very harsh on my insides, but I got rid of my chronic migraines and sciatic/knee pain. Since then I have lived with severely inflammed intestines, constipation with resulting left sided pain and pressure, distended abdomen, bladder pressure, severe gas and bloating. I can have throbbing that lasts anywhere from a few hours to the entire day, and I cannot sit or walk without great discomfort. I've taken the #1 on and off when I was desperate, but when I take enough to make me really go, I get severe cramps, diarrhea and the cycle of inflammation continues.
For the past two months I started giving myself enemas every day, and became dependant on them. I stopped a few days ago, and drank some prune juice- unfortunately it didn't help until tonight, where I had severe cramps and diarrhea again. I am currently in pain and desperate for help!
I have to tell you that in the last week I've gone 100% raw with my diet, and I've had a lot of positive changes in terms of energy and fibro pain. However my yeast infections are still constant- I know my bowel is the center of most of my problems, but it's so difficult to remedy! I was just about to order Dr.Christopher's Fennel-B, but I am very concerned that I will have a bad reaction, as I usually do.
I'd appreciate any feedback you can give me at this time and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for coming to this forum! I hope that I will be able to see you in person one day and thank you for everything.....
