I am sorry to hear about your cousin. I hope you are okay.
Well i do know that genes are changable but i do not think the FXN gene changes cause of alimentation or changing other stresses. At least I am sure it is not that for me. I feel it is something much deeper. I think I chose that disease for a much deeper reason - and not even necessarily for me but to heal things in a bigger picture by making peace with the disease and heal it this way. Thats why im trying not to work against my disease but to work with it =) Once the gene has changed (just by not fighting against it) i will clear my body from the toxins - most likely by doing the fast you suggested ;)
I am going to Brazil yes - i want to lern more about how to connect myself to everything. Thank you so much =)
Its a plant based diet I am eating anyway. For 2 1/2 years I am vegetarin already and pretty close to vegan now. Raw i should do more again... thanks for the reminder =)
