September 2006 – February 2007

 I’m still here! Fighting MS. Proud, confident… The last 5 months, since my last update, gave me a new perspective. I tried to gather my thoughts, went through my notes and here I am. Stronger, infront a much more trying period where things move slowly but steadily… I’m thinking that if I had to choose some interesting points of my progress during the last 5 months these would be:

1. Pain.
2. Conclusions round the use of B1 vitamin.
3. Fish oil.
4. Urination problems.
5. Joint stress
Ok! I’m trying to explain more all of the above.

1. The last years, pain troubled me from time to time in steady basis. Lately my pain especially at nights became worse. Sometimes I was limping not because of my inability to walk normally but because I was in pain. I used to massage my leg muscles almost every second day using painkiller ointment. My practitioner told me that I would be helped if I used Vitamin C 1000mg (contains organic sulphur which has detoxication properties) three times daily for one month. Of course I would continue to use it as it is an essential vitamin according to Dr Klenners’ protocol. Within a month I didn’t have any pain in my legs until now. B1 vitamin is also known to play an important role to the pain symptom.
 
“Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C): The use of high daily doses of vitamin C will prevent a superimposed illness and will lend itself in metabolism. Ten to twenty grams should be taken daily by mouth in divided doses.”
Note: Ascorbate Acid cannot be taken in megadoses (very acidic). The best thing to do is take Ascorbate Acid (non acidic vitamin C).
 
2. I first started with an injection of 200mg daily for two months until June. The way I stood up was really amazing. Then I was advised that I needed 300mg daily. This did not have the results I was expecting. No much difference. After a few weeks using this dose and while I was discussing about B1 with my friend Jeff he informed me that 400mg is a generally a good dose for men while women usually use 300mg. I increased the dose after of course I was advised by my doctor that I should test my self to 400mg. The difference was great. From the very first injection. Until now whenever I take the injection I feel my legs relieved. Since then I have made some tests to be sure that this is the dose. My doctor claimed that I should return to 300mg after he estimated the dose again after 2 months but he told me that if this made a significant negative difference that I should go back to 400mg. I returned to 300mg twice for some days and this made every doubt disappear.
I use 400mg of B1 intramuscularly since August – September in one injection every day except the day I take the B12 injection. The reason is that my B12 already contains 250mg of B1 so I use it with 100mg of B1 together at that day.
Thiamine (B1) made me search a little bit more about the role it plays in MS. It helps to discard heavy metals, and with B12 is plays a crucial role for the Central Nervous System. According to Doctor Klenner’s Protocol patients with MS are very low in thiamine(b1), b2, b6 vitamins as well as omega 3 fatty acids. But the intake of those vitamins (including Vitamin C) are far from the daily recommended dose. Mega doses make vitamins act as a medicine towards our body’s dysfunctions. Let me remind you some parts of the protocol:
 
“Response of Peripheral and Central nerve Pathology to Mega-Doses of the Vitamin B-Complex and Other Metabolites”…
 
“Early Use of Thiamin Hdrochloride in Neurological Diseases In the late thirties, Stern from Columbia University, was employing thiamin hydrochloride intraspinally with astonishing results in Multiple Sclerosis. He reported taking patients to the operating room on a stretcher, and following 30 mg. thiamin given intraspinally, they would walk back to their room.”
 
“Thiamin hydrochloride: 300mg to 500mg, 30 minutes before meals and bed hour, and during the night if awake. The higher amounts in long-standing cases. This requirement is high, since much is lost through action of gastric juices and loss due to perspiration; 400 mg. daily by needle, given intramuscularly…”
“Cobalamin (Vitamin B12): Technically, B12 is cyanocobalamin….”, “ B12 is recognized as a factor in the synthesis of myelin…”
 
Asking Jeff about if there is a certain period to be sue that you must quit B1 his answer was characteristic:
 
"I would stay with the thiamine for life unless your healing is complete for a sustained period of time and any discovered underlying causes have been corrected. Then you could consider reducing it a little for a time. Dale has continued. Someone named Paul Ferrari was told by Dr. Klenner that he could stop after ten years of symptom free living. He continued it anyway. He has also been symptom free for 30 years".
 
 
As for Vitamin B12 Methycobalamine can also be used in tablets for sublingual or intramuscular use as I’ve learnt from my friend G. who uses it.
 
3. Some MS medicine we use from time to time eg to deal with colds, or treat a certain weakness may change from time to time. But there are some vitamins such B1 and B12 or some supplements such fish oil which are thought to be following our therapy course for many years. As I said lack of omega-3 fatty acids is almost a rule to every MSer. A very good source of these acids is fish oil (also contains vitamin D, E which are very important). I take the E-EPA which contains 78% of EPA while common fish oils contain 18-20% and it is really helping. They can also be taken from polyunsaturated fats which derive from vegetables and vegetable oils (eg sunflower oil).

 
4. Urination problems occurred after one year of my MS. To be accurate the problem was I couldn’t begin urination easily and I had to go to the toilet all the time to feel finally relieved. I began drinking alkaline water in September. The first week I noticed the first signs. I urinated almost every 30 minutes! In the first month my urination became much more normal. I didn’t feel any pain. Then at nights it was like I never had a problem. Every time I have a successful outcome to a certain symptom of my MS I wonder if the way I dealt with it was responsible or it’s just me. So, I try to make a test just to confirm. My urination problems occur whenever I stop drinking the proper quantity of alkaline water. I first noticed when I visited my parents last Christmas where I didn’t have my water filter. That’s why I’m sure.
5. Many chronic diseases have to to with the block of energy flow in human body. Energy flows in our body and for some reason (scars, surgery, accidents etc) in some parts it is blocked. My last update reffered among other issues to a stress I was feeling on my kness and made me more weak after standing for long. This according my doctor had to do with a block of energy flow in my tonsils. I took 8 injections of procain which helps the energy flow again. This method is called Neural Therapy. Accupancture or Vitamin E oil can also help. The results were very obvious after 15 days. I don’t have a problem until today.
 
So what keeps bothering me round my MS?
Even though I ride my bike at ease I still have some problems. I feel a bit slow. Most of the time it’s not easy to notice but there is still the need to improve my mobility and balance until I’m able to run. I also suffer from constipation. Well, it has nothing to do with the old awful times but sometimes if I miss one day then the next two or three days are hard. Constipation is the main symptom which provokes a number of others. Numbness, balance loss, sleep disorders, pain. When three is no constipation problems everything goes back to normal again. That’s why I have to check my nutrition often and help my digestive system work in a best way. My doctor claims that most of chronic disease come from colon dysfunction. Also I must at last take some serious exercise besides simple stretching. I know it helps me a lot but I’m too occupied with my job and it seems I don’t have the time.
That’s all for now. At least everything I had in mind. If something new comes up I’ll keep you informed.

April 2006 – September 2006

Finally after 10 years I was about to test myself to something new. I visited a nutritionist in April of 2006. You can contact him through his website here. I was in no good condition at all. He was specialized in otolaryngology for quite some years before he began to turn his interest into alternative medicines such as homeopathy, acupuncture, Nutrition etc. He has been outspeaking for many years that he could no longer help his patients with drugs or his lance. I will never forget his first question to me: "First of all do you believe that everything someone eats drinks or breaths is very important for his health?"

His method round nutrition is based on a way of finding out about food intolerance and food allergy which is called Vega Allergy Testing comined with kinesiology, energy testing. He also examines which organs inside your body are weak searching what is going on in a mollecular level. For example if you suffer from MS, insufficiency to your immune system will appear clearly according to his method or weaknesses to other parts or systems of your body acoording your symptoms or not. Besides you are subjected to live blood analysis. An examination which helps to exclude important conclusions (eg the candida fungus which flows in your blood, the tolerance of your blood cells etc). The first visit lasted 4 hours! I was informed about Multiple Sclerosis in a very different way. I learnt about the worst enemies of MS. I was given to search through some new information such as the Klenner’s Protocol for MS. My blood was full of candida and my cells seemed really weakened.

I told him what every doctor claimed until then: That the cause of my problem was unknown. He claimed that this wasn’ t right and that MS is a multifactorial syndrome cause by many parameters . In my situation wrong nutrition, Nutrition, wrong medicines, accumulation of Toxins, vaccination stress, Acidulus Enviroment etc. The antidotes to the pathologic findings were vitamins, several supplements, proper nutrition, drinking clean and Fresh Water, whatever composes a healthy life. In all cases a compound therapy is necessary for such a complicated syndrome. Before that I had tried homeopathy and eventhough I was relatively helped it was not enough. I was really amazed by the power of my doctor’ s arguments, even though I was reluctant at first and I was trying to challenge him in every word. I was examined thoroughly and the results showed a very tired organism. The first diet I had to follow was very strict. I left the consulting room full of thoughts. I had to stop the drug treatment I had followed for years. Otherwise, there would be no result. I was afraid and anxious to see what will follow. Finally, I decided to move on. A new way of life was ahead of me. Within a month diarrheas began and my doctor told me this was encouraging because this showed I reacted to the new treatment. Toxins finally begun to discard. The second month I felt my legs much more stable and I gained balance. My memory was much stronger and I felt full of energy. Tremulousness wasn’ t troubling me while I was walking and this made me feel confident. As time went by I felt even better. I drove my bike without being afraid and I didn’ t want to go to bed early anymore because I felt alive again. Sex activity became unexpectedly strong. Numbness in my legs was not so intense and faded day by day. Today I can much more easy bend my leg and walk much more normal. I have no sleep problems except the days I feel really anxious about something but this happens to anyone. I visit the toilet everyday(!) and this is unbelievable and crucial for me after all these years. The second time I visited my nutritionist (July 2006 – after three months) he was surprised as well. He did not expect all this improvement so fast. The same test I had the first time was much more promising. The improvement was obvious. I went the best vacation I have ever had with my girlfriend in the summer of 2006. I will never forget it. I felt so much stronger. This time I was ready to eat more foods. It happens very often. Your organism tolerates some substances again after a period of certain diet. I changed some vitamins and supplements according to new data. This time I would use intramuscular Vitamin B1 and Vitamin B12. After about 5 months period my main goal is not just to get better and better but, why not, to go symptom free! There are extremely few pathologic reactions nature cannot reverse. Besides, I believe to my self, to my doctor. I’ve never lost hope regardless of the seriousness of my situation. It took me ten years to finally discover that MS is not incurable (…See more in personal stories 1 and 2). I had never came across to such a statement. I believe this is the only way not just to deal with MS but to totally defeat it. And I promise you, I will but before that I will share with you every second of this experience because I need it and you need it. I hope you the best. I was now ready on September of 2006 to take a much more thorough test on a much wider range of foods. Here you can see details about my Anti-Candida, Anti-Fungus based Diet. I follow it until now. During this period I was given some procain injectons in my tonsils. According to my doctor the stress I felt on my Knees was because of a block of flow of energy in tonsils! I’m better now. After 6months I must admit that my present situation has nothing to do with my previous state (before 6 months). Ofcourse my improvement lately is slower I dare say but this is absolutely normal because it’s not the same when you first begin a new treatment and after a period of time. I’m feeling my body fighting hard to heel. For example there are short periods of time where Constipation Problems occur and affect my general situation. I will visit my nutritionist on the 23 of December. Until then…

Liver Extract Rocks!

0

It’s been a month without an internet connection and I have tried everything to update my email and blog. Friends, internet cafes etc A few minutes ago I was looking at my email. Here is my short and very useful (as always…) dialog with Dale about liver extract: "The 2nd injection with Liver extract was….UNBELIEVABLE!I felt what is like to go really symptom free. I thought B1 helped a great deal… but now oh!It’a much different. Can you ask Dale if it’s just in my head? After I take the injection I’m really taken off for the next few hours and then… back to "normal".Anyway I’m very excited. Thanks for everything". That’s what I got as an answer: "I didn’t want to get your expectations up above what it would deliver but yes, most people have an absolutely amazing reaction to the treatment once they get the liver extract going. I’ll bet that there will be such an improvement from now on that you will be getting better and better as the weeks go on. Now, remember, it took a long time to get down to where you were, and these nerve pathways and rebuilding of the myelin sheath take time, so don’t expect to run in several weeks. The MAIN thing, is now that you have the whole thing going, you must stay on it, don’t miss ANY injections, don’t let yourself run out of your injectables…" "…Remember that on the way up there are still going to be the occasional days when you don’t feel "quite as strong, or a little tired" and this is normal, because of the huge amount of damage that is being corrected. Start gradual strength training, nothing too excessive, and follow the oral vitamins and diet as well. I am SO HAPPY for you…" "I knew that once we got you going on the full protocol you would be SO excited, as it is an exciting process to recover from a disease that everyone tells you is impossible to recover from. It is certainly NOT in your head, and it will be a steady uphill climb up from now on, don’t worry. Just do not slip and forget, or start playing with your dosages. You will be in great shape by this time next year, I know, from the speed of recovery of the others, but when you have a day where you don’t feel as good, do not doubt, and start to wonder, as I have told you, it is a slow but steady healing from here on. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so happy you finally got the correct injectables. Best wishes, Dale" I had two injections so far… Until now I thought B1 was the most amazing thing that has happened in my therapy (of course combined with everything else… diet, supplements ect) BUT let me tell you that liver extract is NECESSARY! Everytime I have the injection it’s the total joy! I feel like I have less MS! This feeling on my legs cannot be described! It’s like discarding an unecessary weight off of you. Now I’m absolutely sure that the protocol is not just B1, or vitamin E or C or… but everything together as a whole. If something is missing then… you may have results but not the optimal results. I can see this now clearly. Remember that liver extract is prodused only in US and you can order it from these pharmacies. I was having difficulties in finding it. The law is not everywhere the same and you may have some problems with that but if you’re on Klenner’s treatment DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE ROLE OF LIVER EXTRACT! I also remember what I have promised about Amalia’s article. Soon you will have it. PS: From now on I deticate my recovery to the "doctors" of the world who keep following the rules of big pharmas and great profits. Well, I have been following doctor’s Klenner protocol ang guess what…? I’m alive!

“March 2008 – August 2009″

0

Here I am again after almost 17 months! I admit I could write something sooner about my progress but I always wait for the right time to be sure of some things. Maybe the reason I didn’t write earlier has to do with the fact that all this time I had some set backs as well as improvements mixed together. This made me really realise that when the healing process goes on and on the body has it’s own unique way to react, that this path has ups but has downs as well.

No significant set backs though, definitely not like those who someone would describe as “rellapses”.

The truth is there were times I was hasty (even though I new I shouldn’t) or tried to speed things up in several ways and this wasn’t good because it actually delayed my improvement, did more harm than good.

a) The first new thing to me was when on December of 2008 I began taking Calcium and Magnesium. I consider these two minerals very important in the protocol therapy. I realised that the proper analogy between the two (which usually differs depending on the patient) is the key to a number of issues like deep relaxing sleep, feeling calm and relaxed, better bowel function.

Even though in the protocol suggestion a general analogy of 1000mg Calcium and 500mg of Magnesium is given (and this is a good general suggestion) I think that several tries should be given in order to reach to a conclusion round the Calcium Magnesium intake. Every differentiation about the dose should last at least for 2 weeks for Calcium and about 7-10 days for Magnesium in order to reach a conclusion and take the next step. A 1:1 analogy should be seriously considered also.

For me, I have concluded that 800-900mg of Calcium and 300-400 is best assessing my condition each time (increasing magnesium if feeling after a lot of tiredness or heat a feeling of slight spasticity tendency, especially in summer, or a bad sign about my toilet visits. Increasing Calcium if my stool looks watery sometimes or when my sleep seems to be less deep).

From December 2008 I think I climbed a higher point of recovery and even though someone cannot easily realise it in my mobility changes I can clearly see it “inside” and in mobility as well. Eventhough I had no further significant improvement in my mobility the way it was described in my last reviews everything seemed to work like a clock to my metabolism and I know it is the best sign to see the REAL results in mobility as well. This continued for a couple of months until one day I felt I really had NOTHING of my MS left but only for that day. Of course this did not last forever but it was a very positive sign. There were times after this where every day life and spontaneousness choices created problems again which I had to face.

b) The second big step which I took and I think is crucial has to do with my nutrition. This is one big chapter on the protocol and I strongly believe that more things should be added in my website.

There are many levels on this great issue one has to reach. First quiting some foods, then find out what he is allowed to eat, when to eat it, how to cook it, what to combine with what, etc.

Diary: I have quit all diary. Don’t forget that diary contain casein (protein which according the theory of molecular mimicry can trigger your immune system), lactose (liquid sugar extremely harmful). Many diary (especially the cows products) derive from animals stuffed with vaccines, antibiotics etc

Carbohydrates: Avoiding every kind of thick carbohydrates like rice, corn, legumes, bread (even gluten free), potatoes which I used to eat on a steady basis. Thick carbohydrates are broken down into sugars and enter the blood stream quickly and in big quantities which means that you raise your glycemic load. This has an impact to the rise of your insulin which rises in order to drop the sugar level in your blood which creates a new need for sugars and so on… The rise of insulin has a dominoe effect to other hormones like cortisone and the vicious cycle never stops.

You may be wondering what do I eat…

My meals do not mix many different types of foods together. 1/3 of my plate is protein (liver, fish, meat white and less often red -except pork-) and the rest is filled with “good carbohydrates” (vegetables and fruits) plus olive oil on a daily basis. Fruits are eaten later (almost 1 hour after meals).

Of course a few exceptions to this style of eating cannot harm me unless they remain exceptions. For example if I eat lentiles sometime this can be good for a change or eat some goat cheese or a small piece of gluten free bread but not every day.

Spices and fruits: I made a special search concerning antifungus antibacterial spices. I use very often with my food cinnamon, turmeric (curcumin), corriander (mercury chelator), grapefruit (extremely anticandida fruit), berries.

Nuts: Natural nuts (almonds, cashews, brazilian nuts -they are full of Selenium which helps with heavy metals absorption-, pumpkin seeds etc) can be very helpful but make sure you chew it very well and it doesn’t affect your good bowel cleanse. I feel like I need eating nuts every once a while. They are a good protein source.

Avoid processed nuts.

Vegetable juicing: This is my favourite “discovery”. I bought a juicer and began drinking my vegetables. There are great tastes you should try and besides that there are lots of reasons to add this to your nutrition. First of all you will get a much bigger quantity of vegetables if you have it in a juice. Imagine that in order to fill a normal cup you need at least 3-4 rather big carrots, a whole cos and almost half of a cucumber and I just gave you a good recipe to begin with! You may find very good recipes here or in case you want to buy a book here.

Another good is that nutritients of your vegetables are much more easily absorbed this way.

Remember that you shouldn’t have your fruits in juices but your vegetables!!!

All these helped a lot my metabolism to better assimilate foods and really work like a clock.

It was a big step for a much more quality and effortlessly toilet visit and a definitely higher capability to widen the range of the foods I eat (sometimes I eat a good quality rye toast rich in fiber, or a little organic pepper or some other vegetables like artichok I used to be intolerant to). I feel much more resistant than I used to be.

c) Supplements additions:

I have enriched my antioxidant protection by adding Alpha Lipoic Acid to my oral vitamins program (200mg daily), Curcumin as a supplement (1000mg daily), Zinc – 25mg one daily (I do not take it every day but whenever I feel I need an extra immune strength – Zinc is also a very good chelator).

I have also tried B12 injection which is helping most of the times (I do 1ml once or twice weekly).

As a result I can say that there was an improvement to my condition the last 17 months. It was harder than it used to be when I first started the protocol but this is completely normal because each step to climb is more difficult than the previous one. The difficulty has to do with the ability to realise what is going on at each period, how your body “talks” to you so that you have the right conclusions, not to get disappointed and never consider an improvement as given but a new challenge to preserve it! I must admit there were times I thought things were worsening because not every day is a good day but now I know, looking back I have no spasticity, the quality of my toilet visits has GREATLY improved and “constipation” is an unknown term, I keep riding my bike, working, sleep like I had never slept my whole life, my energy and tolerance is at it’s pick, no pains, no fatigue or urination problems… well, I have no other symptom left excpet a difficulty in my legs (stiffeness and a heavy feeling which sometimes gets worse or much better depending on each period).

There were times I thought this symptom would leave faster and I would easily declare my self “symptom free” but Dale Humpherys was always warning me not to be so sure that it would be “quick” that I should try to relax and protect my self, stay focused on the protocol treatment. He was more than right!

Today I feel much more confident and mature to continue this treatment, I see the “silent steps” which are necessary knowing that the full success is not so far away…

Ξαναγράφω μετά από σχεδόν 17 μήνες! Παραδέχομαι ότι θα μπορούσα να είχα γράψει κάτι για την πρόοδό μου νωρίτερα, αλλά πάντα περιμένω τον κατάλληλο χρόνο για να είμαι βέβαιος για κάποια πράγματα. Ίσως ο λόγος που δεν έγραψα νωρίτερα έχει να κάνει με το γεγονός ότι όλο αυτό το διάστημα είχα τόσο χειροτερεύσεις όσο και βελτιώσεις μαζί. Αυτό με έκανε πραγματικά να καταλάβω ότι όταν η διαδικασία ίασης συνεχίζεται, το σώμα έχει το δικό του τρόπο να αντιδρά και ότι αυτός ο δρόμος έχει ανεβοκατεβάσματα.

Δεν είχα ωστόσο σημαντικές χειροτερεύσεις, σίγουρα όχι τέτοιες που θα μπορούσε κάποιος να τις περιγράψει σαν «υποτροπές».

Η αλήθεια είναι ότι υπήρξαν περίοδοι που ανησύχησα (αν και ξέρω πως δε θα ‘πρεπε) ή προσπάθησα να επιταχύνω τα πράγματα με διάφορους τρόπους κι αυτό δεν ήταν καλό γιατί στην πραγματικότητα καθυστέρησε τη βελτίωσή μου, έκανε περισσότερο κακό παρά καλό.

α) Το πρώτο καινούργιο πράγμα για μένα ήταν όταν το Δεκέμβριο του 2008 άρχισα να παίρνω Ασβέστιο και Μαγνήσιο. Θεωρώ αυτά τα δυο συμπληρώματα πολύ σημαντικά στο πρωτόκολλο. Συνειδητοποίησα ότι η κατάλληλη αναλογία αυτών των δυο (που συνήθως διαφέρει ανάλογα με τον ασθενή) είναι το κλειδί για έναν αριθμό θεμάτων όπως ο βαθύς, ξεκούραστος ύπνος, το να αισθάνεσαι ήρεμος και ξεκούραστος, η καλύτερη λειτουργία του εντέρου.

Αν και στο πρωτόκολλο αναφέρεται μια γενική αναλογία 1000mg Ασβεστίου και 500mg Μαγνησίου (και αυτή είναι μια καλή γενική πρόταση) νομίζω πως πρέπει να γίνουν διάφορες δοκιμές για να φτάσει κάποιος στο συμπέρασμα σχετικά με την πρόσληψη Ασβεστίου-Μαγνησίου. Κάθε μεταβολή στη δόση πρέπει να διατηρηθεί τουλάχιστο 2 εβδομάδες για το Ασβέστιο και 7-10 μέρες για το Μαγνήσιο για να βγάλει ένα συμπέρασμα και να προχωρήσει στο επόμενο βήμα. Η αναλογία 1:1 θα ‘πρεπε επίσης να εξεταστεί σοβαρά.

Για μένα, έχω καταλήξει ότι 800-900mg Ασβεστίου και and 300-400mg Μαγνησίου μου ταιριάζουν, επανεκτιμώντας κάθε φορά την κατάστασή μου (Αυξάνω το Μαγνήσιο αν μετά από πολλή κούραση ή ζέστη αισθάνομαι μια ελαφριά τάση σπαστικότητας, ειδικά το καλοκαίρι ή κάποιο κακό σημάδι στον τρόπο που ενεργούμαι. Αυξάνω το Ασβέστιο αν τα κόπρανά μου φαίνονται υδαρή κάποιες φορές ή όταν ο ύπνος είναι λιγότερο βαθύς).

Από το Δεκέμβριο του 2008 νομίζω πως ανέβηκα σ’ ένα ψηλότερο σημείο αποκατάστασης και αν και δεν μπορεί κάποιος να το συνειδητοποιήσει εύκολα στις αλλαγές στην κινητικότητά μου μπορώ καθαρά να το δω «εσωτερικά» καθώς και στην κινητικότητα. Ακόμη κι αν δεν είχα περαιτέρω σημαντική βελτίωση στην κινητικότητά μου έτσι όπως την περιέγραψα στις τελευταίες αναφορές μου, όλα φαίνονταν να δουλεύουν σαν ρολόι στο μεταβολισμό μου και ξέρω πως αυτό είναι το καλύτερο σημάδι για να δει κανείς ΠΡΑΓΜΑΤΙΚΑ αποτελέσματα επίσης και στην κινητικότητα. Αυτό συνεχίστηκε για ένα-δυο μήνες μέχρι που μια μέρα αισθάνθηκα πως πραγματικά δεν είχε απομείνει ΤΙΠΟΤΑ από τη ΣΚΠ μου, αλλά μόνο γι’ αυτή τη μέρα. Φυσικά αυτό δε διατηρήθηκε για πάντα αλλά ήταν ένα πολύ θετικό σημάδι. Υπήρξαν στιγμές μετά απ’ αυτό που η καθημερινή ζωή και τυχαίες αλλαγές δημιούργησαν προβλήματα που έπρεπε να αντιμετωπίσω.

β) Το δεύτερο μεγάλο βήμα που έκανα και νομίζω πως είναι κρίσιμο έχει να κάνει με τη διατροφή μου. Αυτό είναι ένα μεγάλο κεφάλαιο του πρωτοκόλλου και πιστεύω απόλυτα ότι θα ‘πρεπε να προσθέσω περισσότερα πράγματα στην ιστοσελίδα μου.

Υπάρχουν πολλά βήματα που πρέπει κάποιος να κάνει σ’ αυτό το σπουδαίο θέμα. Πρώτα να κόψει κάποιες τροφές, μετά να βρει τι του επιτρέπεται να τρώει, πότε να το τρώει, πώς να το μαγειρεύει, τι να συνδυάζει με τι κτλ.

Γαλακτοκομικά: Τα έχω κόψει όλα. Μην ξεχνάτε ότι τα γαλακτοκομικά περιέχουν καζεΐνη (πρωτεΐνη η οποία σύμφωνα με τη θεωρία της μοριακής μίμησης μπορεί να ερεθίσει το ανοσοποιητικό σύστημα), λακτόζη (πολύ βλαβερό υγρό σάκχαρο). Πολλά γαλακτοκομικά (ειδικά τα προϊόντα από βοοειδή) προέρχονται από ζώα γεμάτα εμβόλια, αντιβιοτικά κτλ.

Υδατάνθρακες: Αποφεύγω κάθε είδος πυκνών υδατανθράκων που παλιότερα έτρωγα σε μόνιμη βάση, όπως ρύζι, καλαμπόκι, όσπρια, ψωμί (ακόμα και χωρίς γλουτένη), πατάτες. Οι πυκνοί υδατάνθρακες διασπώνται σε σάκχαρα και εισέρχονται γρήγορα στη ροή του αίματος και σε μεγάλες ποσότητες, πράγμα που σημαίνει αύξηση του γλυκαιμικού φορτίου. Αυτό έχει επίδραση στην αύξηση της ινσουλίνης που γίνεται για να ρίξει το επίπεδο σακχάρου στο αίμα, πράγμα που δημιουργεί νέα ανάγκη για ζάχαρη κτλ…Η αύξηση της ινσουλίνης δημιουργεί φαινόμενο ντόμινο σε άλλες ορμόνες όπως η κορτιζόνη και ο φαύλος κύκλος δε σταματά.

Θα αναρωτιέστε τι να τρώτε…

Στα γεύματά μου δεν αναμιγνύω πολλούς διαφορετικούς τύπους τροφών μαζί. Το 1/3 του πιάτου μου είναι πρωτεΐνη (συκώτι, ψάρι, κρέας άσπρο και λιγότερο συχνά κόκκινο – εκτός από χοιρινό – και το υπόλοιπο γεμίζει με «καλούς υδατάνθρακες» (λαχανικά και φρούτα), με ελαιόλαδο σε καθημερινή βάση. Τα φρούτα τρώγονται αργότερα (σχεδόν 1 ώρα μετά τα γεύματα).

Φυσικά λίγες εξαιρέσεις σ’ αυτόν τον τρόπο διατροφής δεν μπορούν να με βλάψουν αν παραμένουν εξαιρέσεις. Για παράδειγμα, είναι καλό να φάω φακές μια φορά για αλλαγή ή λίγο καλό κατσικίσιο τυρί ή μια φέτα ψωμί χωρίς γλουτένη, αλλά όχι κάθε μέρα.

Μπαχαρικά και φρούτα: Έκανα ειδική έρευνα για τα αντιμυκητικά αντιβακτηριδιακά μπαχαρικά. Χρησιμοποιώ συχνά με το φαγητό μου κανέλλα, κουρκουμίνη, κορίανδρο (αφαιρεί τα βαρέα μέταλλα), γκρέιπφρουτ (εξαιρετικό για την καταπολέμηση της κάντιντα), μούρα.

Ξηροί καρποί: Οι φυσικοί ξηροί καρποί (αμύγδαλα, κάσιους, βραζιλιάνικα καρύδια –είναι γεμάτα σελήνιο που βοηθά στην απορρόφηση βαρέων μετάλλων- κολοκυθόσποροι κτλ.) μπορεί να βοηθήσουν πολύ, αλλά βεβαιωθείτε ότι τα μασάτε πολύ καλά και δεν επηρεάζουν την καλή λειτουργία του εντέρου. Αισθάνομαι ότι χρειάζομαι να φάω ξηρούς καρπούς κάθε τόσο. Είναι καλή πηγή πρωτεΐνης

Αποφεύγετε τους κατεργασμένους ξηρούς καρπούς.

Χυμοί λαχανικών: Είναι η αγαπημένη μου «ανακάλυψη». Αγόρασα έναν αποχυμωτή και άρχισα να πίνω τα λαχανικά μου. Υπάρχουν σπουδαίες γεύσεις που θα ‘πρεπε να δοκιμάσετε και επιπλέον υπάρχουν πολλοί λόγοι για να τα προσθέσετε στη διατροφή σας. Πρώτα-πρώτα παίρνετε πολύ μεγαλύτερη ποσότητα λαχανικών αν τα κάνετε χυμούς. Σκεφτείτε ότι για να γεμίσετε ένα κανονικό ποτήρι χρειάζεστε τουλάχιστο 3-4 μεγαλούτσικα καρότα, ένα ολόκληρο μαρούλι και σχεδόν μισό αγγούρι και μόλις σας έδωσα μια καλή συνταγή για ν’ αρχίσετε! Μπορείτε να βρείτε καλές συνταγές εδώ ή σε περίπτωση που θέλετε να αγοράσετε ένα σχετικό βιβλίο εδώ.
Ένα άλλο καλό είναι ότι οι θρεπτικές ουσίες των λαχανικών σας απορροφώνται πολύ πιο εύκολα έτσι. Θυμηθείτε ότι δεν πρέπει να κάνετε χυμούς τα φρούτα σας αλλά τα λαχανικά σας!!!

Όλα αυτά βοήθησαν πολύ το μεταβολισμό μου να αφομοιώνει καλύτερα τις τροφές και να δουλεύει πραγματικά σαν ρολόι.

Ήταν ένα μεγάλο βήμα για μια περισσότερο ποιοτική και εύκολη τουαλέτα και σίγουρα μια μεγαλύτερη δυνατότητα να διευρύνω την ποικιλία των τροφών που τρώω (Μερικές φορές τρώω μια καλής ποιότητας φρυγανιά σικάλεως που είναι πλούσια σε ίνες ή μια μικρή οργανική πιπεριά ή κάποιο άλλο λαχανικό όπως η αγκινάρα, στα οποία παλιά ήμουν αλλεργικός). Αισθάνομαι πολύ πιο ανθεκτικός από παλιά.

γ) Προσθήκες στα συμπληρώματα:

Έχω εμπλουτίσει την αντιοξειδωτική μου προστασία προσθέτοντας Alpha Lipoic Acid στις πόσιμες βιταμίνες μου (200mg την ημέρα), Κουρκουμίνη ως συμπλήρωμα (1000mg την ημέρα), Ψευδάργυρο – 25mg την ημέρα (όχι κάθε μέρα αλλά όταν αισθάνομαι ότι χρειάζομαι παραπάνω ανοσοποιητική προστασία – ο Ψευδάργυρος είναι επίσης καλός για την απομάκρυνση των βαρέων μετάλλων).

Έχω επίσης δοκιμάσει ενέσεις B12 που συνήθως βοηθούν (Κάνω 1ml μια ή δυο φορές την εβδομάδα).

Ως αποτέλεσμα μπορώ να πω ότι υπήρξε μια βελτίωση της κατάστασής μου τους τελευταίους 17 μήνες. Είναι πιο δύσκολο σε σύγκριση με όταν πρωτοξεκίνησα το πρωτόκολλο αλλά αυτό είναι απόλυτα φυσικό γιατί κάθε βήμα που ανεβαίνεις είναι δυσκολότερο από το προηγούμενο. Η δυσκολία έχει να κάνει με την ικανότητα να καταλαβαίνεις τι γίνεται κάθε περίοδο, πώς το σώμα σου σου «μιλάει» έτσι ώστε να βγάλεις τα σωστά συμπεράσματα, όχι να απογοητεύεσαι και ποτέ να μη θεωρείς μια βελτίωση ως δεδομένη αλλά ως μια πρόκληση να τη διατηρήσεις! Πρέπει να παραδεχτώ ότι υπήρξαν στιγμές που σκέφτηκα ότι τα πράγματα χειροτέρευαν γιατί κάθε μέρα δεν ήταν καλή αλλά τώρα ξέρω κοιτώντας πίσω πως δεν έχω σπαστικότητα, η ποιότητα της τουαλέτας μου έχει βελτιωθεί ΠΑΡΑ ΠΟΛΥ και η «δυσκοιλιότητα» είναι ένας άγνωστος πλέον όρος, χρησιμοποιώ το μηχανάκι μου, εργάζομαι, κοιμάμαι όπως δεν έχω κοιμηθεί σ’ ολόκληρη τη ζωή μου, η ενέργειά μου και η αντοχή μου είναι στο ζενίθ, δεν έχω πόνους, κόπωση ή προβλήματα ούρησης…λοιπόν, Δε μου έχει απομείνει άλλο σύμπτωμα εκτός από κάποια δυσκολία στα πόδια (ακαμψία και μια βαριά αίσθηση που μερικές φορές χειροτερεύει ή καλυτερεύει πολύ ανάλογα με την κάθε περίοδο).

Υπήρχαν περίοδοι που πίστευα ότι αυτό το σύμπτωμα θα έφευγε γρηγορότερα και θα χαρακτήριζα εύκολα τον εαυτό μου ως «χωρίς συμπτώματα», αλλά ο Dale Humpherys πάντα με προειδοποιούσε να μην είμαι τόσο σίγουρος ότι θα ήταν «γρήγορο», ότι έπρεπε να προσπαθήσω να χαλαρώσω και να προστατεύσω τον εαυτό μου, να μείνω επικεντρωμένος στη θεραπεία του πρωτοκόλλου. Είχε απόλυτο δίκιο!

Σήμερα αισθάνομαι ότι έχω πολύ μεγαλύτερη εμπιστοσύνη και ωριμότητα να συνεχίσω αυτή τη θεραπεία, βλέπω τα «σιωπηλά βήματα» που χρειάζονται, ξέροντας πως η πλήρης επιτυχία δεν είναι τόσο μακριά…
