I just surpassed one year of healing my body this January. It has been quite a journey; and one I am not near completing, although the journey never ends, there will be destinations along the way I can point to that indicate milestones.
But I wanted to say thank you to Tarilee, this board and others who have helped me get to this point in my life. While I may not have been 100% on the organic "train" from the start, or a few other things, I have come aboard now. I eat only 100% organic vegetables, all non-gmo, get my meats, eggs and dairy from a co-op which raise and prepare only cage-free, anti-biotic/hormone free livestock, and do not heat pasteurize their eggs or dairy. I have learned methods for soaking and sprouting; for which I understand the reasons why. I have come to learn good methods of food intake and balance. This is only a beginning. I still have so much farther to go.
I am so much better/healthier now and my nutritionist is so wonderful. She had put me on a very-specific, unique-to-me diet and supplement program and has given me so much great information. These last 2-3 months of being under her guidance has helped my body continue to eliminate toxins. We now believe that after still suffering from one ailment (sort of a by-product of toxin elimination) and the program I'm on, that I have heavy metals toxicity, especially in my liver. She believes from my description of my symptoms that I have a large amount of mercury and aluminum stored up in my liver. But her prediction is that within a year I should be at a point where most of my body should be detoxed of the metals if I continue to follow her plan.
But in any case, I have been away from these boards for a while simply because I have been following her recommendations specifically, and as a matter of lack of time too, but will be perusing again for info on the subject, but again a thank you to the wonderful people here who put so much time into such a wonderful web project and the great people who post here.
