This is my first time doing this, too (bentonite) -- so why not 'do it together'!
For me, there is a bit of a worry -- maybe not a fear -- but after reading the posts here of all those good people that have done so well to GET WELL and shared their experiences--- then let's go, girl!
A Healthy Body is our God-given right -- not something to be toyed with in the medical profession... and God is on our sides if we choose to Trust in the Process of Life and the inherent processes of the Body to heal itself -- given the proper tools and systems.
I am 'new to ill health'-- never having to have been to doctors or take prescriptions for my whole life -- until after the birth of my last child almost 2 years ago. I have treated myself all these years successfully. Now under the 'doctor's care' I have never been in worse health!
For the health problems that came up 'they' put me on daily prescriptions which I HATE .. and am going to wean myself off!
I have been to a few doctors who do not seem to be able to put 2+2 together.....Biggest complaint is that no one is looking at ALL of my health matters TOGETHER as one problem -- such as how I could be POST-MENOPAUSAL (by Hormone test levels) in 2 months time --- and that after having had a baby in July 2001, breast-fed and had no peri-menopausal symptoms!
I also have been having terrible indigestion and heartburn come out of nowhere that drugs are not really helping....plus a few other health issues. All the doctors want to do is SUPRESS
my body's responses -- that can't be good long-term!
All of the problems I have been experiencing came after 'listening to the doctor' in pregnancy AGAINST my own body's 'knowing' (especially when he was wrong about my condition and bounced me around to many specialists that would send me back home saying there was no problems). By the end of the pregnancy I had high blood pressure and was bedridden for a placenta previa that I didn't have!!! That started the health issues I am in today.
Though I don't feel that the pregnancy was the issue -- but that the resultant stress left me 'vulnerable' and weak.
The cleanse is a way to "reclaim" myself -- something we should all do. I am looking at this from top to bottom, so to speak.
THE TEETH -- I have had much dental work -- including a root canal
just prior to the pregnancy. Look up on this site about this subject...WHOA!
THE FOOD -- I have switched to an organic vegan diet and distilled water that I distill myself.
THE BOWELS -- I am now doing cleanses, fasts and enemas.
And this is just on the Physical Body level -- I am also addressing the MENTAL, EMOTIONAL and SPRIRITUAL Levels as well.
Kay, I hope that you your husband have the fortitude to 'stick it out' and to reclaim your health, too. I am with you all the way!
