I cannot express enough how sorry I am to have left you all hanging with an update of how I’m getting on with the Medical Medium protocol.
Life has been busy and good, but as always there are ups and downs.
So, let’s get straight into it. For those new to this blog (can you believe I used to blog religiously twice a week) I’m linking to the previous posts. The first one Medical Medium – The Discovery and AHA Moment followed by Medical Medium – The 28-Day Healing Cleanse.
So what happened in 2017? Well, after my 28-Day Healing Cleanse I felt great. Skin was radiant, bloating was much better and I had lost weight. Now what? I was convinced that if I maintained my routine of lemon water/celery juice/heavy metal detox smoothie and have lots of fruit and veg I could stay with my animal proteins, but simply cut down. Well well, if life would only be so easy and if one could always just find the right balance. Wouldn’t that make life much easier?
What really happened was that I maintained my routine (here above) for a lot of the year but I was so used to compensate with animal proteins that this would always be my first choice. So, in short, life was very hectic in 2017 (not going to bore you why) and I couldn’t quite follow through with my good intentions of keeping to the Medical Medium protocol the way I had planned. By the end of 2017 I felt ‘nearly’ as rubbish as before I did the 28-Day Healing Cleanse. That statement is probably a little exaggerated, as the celery juice and heavy metal detox smoothie would have made some difference – but that’s how I felt!
I remember sitting here around the middle of December and thinking to myself that after my life long search of answers to my mystery illness I had finally found them (I will never be able to express enough gratitude to the Medical Medium and spirit) – so it’s now really up to me. I can go on make excuses how giving up animal proteins is hard for me (yes it was) but something inside of me just knew that I had to COMMIT and be FOCUSED!
Ideally I need to be on a low fat wholefood plant based diet. Although I don’t eat much fat, animal proteins has a ton of it. I especially preferred salmon, mackerel, herring and sardines, the oilier types (always believed they are good for you). Whether it’s lean grilled chicken (without skin), or wild venison, pigeon and pheasant – all of it contains fat. Then I loved my extra version olive oil, I cooked with coconut oil and had avocados from time to time. To me, that wasn’t a bad diet as I had lots of vegetables and salads with it all. BUT, a decision needed to be taken and I knew that 1 January 2018 would be the day!
So here we are. I’ve been on the low fat wholefood plant based protocol with all the trimmings:-) for over 2 months now and you all are wanting to know how I’m feeling. Well, I’m tired in the mornings, a lot of my symptoms are still here but I know deep down that if I persist (and I will) things will go from strength to strength. My digestion is DEFINITELY better and my skin glows. Patience is the answer here. Patience I’ve got!
Fortunately there is a thriving Instagram community. Some of you might know that the Medical Medium brought out his third book back in November 2017. I urge everyone to buy it, whether you have thyroid issues or not. It’s jam packed with incredible information.
Back to the Instagram community. A few day ago, Lauren, (@fortheloveoflyme) invited everyone to join her on the 90 Day Thyroid rehab #90daythyroidrehab This is something that Anthony Williams wrote in his last book. There is Plan A (30 Days) – Plan B (30 Days) and Plan C (30 days). You start off with Plan A (the simplest version of them). I am already on Plan C but have been feeling rather isolated with it all. The Medical Medium community is heavily US based and I’ve been struggling to make contacts with any UK followers. However, having joined this Instagram challenge has made me feel less isolated with it all and I’m loving it. It’s so incredible and amazing to see how many people are joining in. If any of you are on Instagram, do follow me (@colourliving) and look up the hashtag. You’ll be blown away to see the massive healing that’s going on.
Basically this 30 days cycle is for anyone who wants to prevent illness. You can all join in, whether you are following the Medical Medium protocol or not. It’s to help you eliminate those foods that feed pathogens and contribute tom our modern day ailments and illnesses.
FOODS TO AVOID!!!
• Eggs 🍳
• Canola Oil
