Last two weeks were brutal…sorry to say. This is a roller coaster ride from hell. My doctor assures me it’ll all be worth it in the end…sometimes I find myself wishing for a different kind of end…not in reality, it’s just so hard to feel this way month after month. I try to stay positive on these posts but I know there are others of you out there that know what I’m going through or more likely you’re going through even worse health tragedies. All of us only have this life and these moments in our life to enjoy. So regardless of what you’re going through keep moving forward and find things to enjoy in each moment. The joy is there waiting, you just have to be silent and listen.
Last Monday I did the fast using lemon and lime juice in water with maple syrup. I drank sips every 15 minutes throughout the day. The first day I felt quite good. They say if you feel you must eat something eat a vegetable you don’t normally eat like brussel sprouts. So I ate brussel sprouts and cauliflower in the evening. All was good until the evening of the second day when I got a migraine. Dr. Scott told me later that was a sign that my blood sugar was dropping and I needed to eat. I wasn’t aware of that so I went to bed that night without eating. By morning I was a mess. I stood up and felt dizzy, so I dropped to the floor in the kitchen, then started having seizure-like jerking of my body, which unfortunately caused me to hit my head over and over against the refrigerator. I know it doesn’t sound funny but every time I think about what I must have looked like I laugh so hard. I guess it’s good to be able to laugh at yourself. I contacted Dr. Scott and he said I needed to start eating and continue on to the next phase with the ClearVite. It took me two days to recover from the cleansing debacle, then I had one incredible, wonderful, energy filled day. I was hoping it would continue, but no luck, the next two days were the worst ever. I have no idea why. I called Dr. Scott again and he just said this is what it’s like. It’s different for everyone and you have ups and downs but he still assures me to hang in there and I’ll be better. He said these stages are just laying the platform that we’ll be building good health from. So I asked him if there are other people he’s worked with that are similar to me, in that they have weight loss instead of weight gain. Basically he said yes and gave me examples of different people he’s worked with and what their experience was. The one thing that didn’t ring familiar with him was the pins and needles pain in my scalp and gums that I experience regularly.
So I’m taking off tomorrow for some traveling. My gut is telling me I should just stay home, but I’ve made airline reservations and plan to visit family and friends. I’ll just be as prepared as I can, rest and relax often, stay on the diet (which isn’t a problem, I love it) and the ClearVite and when I return I’ll start the 3rd phase which will be supplements that address my adrenal. I felt like that’s something I need now, but Dr. Scott tells me that if you do too many things at once it throws it all off and nothing works. I understand and appreciate that as I’ve been one to try too many things at once and then wonder why they’re not working. In case you’re interested here’s a website for how the ClearVite Program works. http://thekuhnclinic.com/PDFs/the%20kuhnClinic%20-%20CLEARVITE.pdf
From the book, The Power of Now, “Are you complaining in speech or thought about a situation you find yourself in, what other people do or say, your surroundings, your life, the weather? To complain is non-acceptance of what is. You can change the situation by taking action, speaking out if necessary or possible, leaving the situation or accepting it. All else is madness.”
