I can relate to your episodes of laughing and crying uncontrollably. I've been having quite a few days where all I do is cry. I think it is a cleansing reaction. I've been doing some homemade colon cleansing, fresh juices, and primal defense.
Bloodroot has helped me too, in the past. After taking it internally for a couple weeks, I noticed the upper abdonimal fullness that I'd had for so long, was gone. It also totally cleared what I believe was a cancerous growth on my finger. I never had it analyzed, but to me it looked pretty bad. It did not heal over time, was growing and changing colors, sometimes even daily it changed color. I put bloodroot on it and it stopped it in it's tracks. It was an amazing thing to see. It turned white and fell off after a week or so. Never came back again.
I still take bloodroot internally. I've been using the salve (from life line water), but I've often wondered if making a tea from the herb would be as good... maybe not. The salve was working, so I didn't want to mess with it. But I was taking it as rounds, maybe 2 or 3 weeks at a time...it could be that I needed to take it longer to get more benefits as well. Did you use it for 6 months straight, or take breaks in between? How much did you take per dose?
That's such an amazing story of how you stuck with it even when things where tough, and ultimately healed yourself! Good for you!
