TODAY is DAY 5
It has been a pretty good day today. Quite a bit of energy and my appetite has been very low. My body is getting used to not eating so much - or it is getting more efficient in utilizing the fuel I provide it - or both.
Yesterday I took a peat bath - a mild one. The water temperature was hot but not so hot it took forever to sit in it. I used about 1/3rd of a liter of peat also. It is wise to begin a series of peat baths with water not so hot and with a smaller amount of peat due to the potential intensity of treatment.
One's body must be used to hyperthermia - getting very hot - before shocking it with very hot water and a lot of peat. My next bath will likely be tomorrow and I will really ramp up the temperature and add about 1/2 a tube of peat.
It is also not wise to ramp up the temperature of the peat bath early in the detox as more toxins will be pulled from adipose and end up circulating in the bloodstream. As I did a mild treatment, the toxins that were circulating in my blood were encouraged out through my skin as I sweat a lot.
Tomorrow's bath will force my body to utilize more energy from my body as my heart rate will be going like mad from the heat and peat. The energy will be coming from my adipose stores as I have not been eating much - thus my toxic load will increase in circulation.
I am now ready for this intense treatment as I feel good. I do not have headaches. I do not have such fowl breath and my stools do not stink any more. Remember day 2? My god. Thank goodness that is gone.
I feel good for a number of reasons. Basic one is that I am not eating any crap foods - only whole foods and very limited to veggies, fruits, brown rice and protein powder with a liver support supplement, BioCleanse.
A more interesting one - for lack of a better description - is that I did an enema last night. This procedure removed all the waste material that was sitting on the walls of my colon. The walls of the colon are where water is normally absorbed - and toxins also if they are present.
My bowel movements yesterday were numerous and with ample amount each time. Amazing given that I haven't eaten much lately. But remember what I said before, stool is mainly bacteria anyhow.
Since my bowels were moving well, the enema was extra effective as the water had the ability to get all the up, over and down along my entire colon. I could literally feel it travel. It felt kinda odd. I don't remember ever feeling that before.
How did I prepare the enema?
I have a rubber enema bag that I bought from Russia a couple years ago. It holds about 2 liters of fluid. I filled it up with warm water from my shower. Why my shower? I have a chlorine filter there. The last thing I wanted to do during a detox is to directly absorb 2 liters of chlorinated water. I then added a pinch of salt to make it less harsh to my mucous membranes inside.
So if you do not have a chlorine filter, simply buy filtered water at a store and warm it in a pot - preferably stainless steel - not teflon.
My enema bag is gravity fed meaning that it hangs up high on something and when the hose is opened, water flows in at a rate determined by gravity. This is much safer than a pressurized system and I prefer it for a few reasons. [More on that at some point.]
I could only take a little water initially as my colon was spasmodic a bit from the cleansing herbs. When you feel the urge, do not try to hold it back - simply get up on the toilet and let it out.
Oh - and on my bathroom floor I had some warm towels laid out for comfort and for uh...spillage. What a fun topic Ben - my God - who is gonna read this?! But hey - for people who want to know how to do it - this is how I did it and Im not proud.
After a couple evacuations having taken 1 liter of water each time, I was able to take a full 2 liters of water no problem. So this means I refilled my bag again. I wish my enema bag was bigger so I could have filled my entire colon full of water which would clean it better. But it is fine - good enough. for now. I located some great enema kits in India and will be ordering them soon for my store. They hold more water and are medical grade.
Position for enema can be found online so no need to go into it - but basically on your knees, relaxed abdomen and head down allowing your torso to relax. Once the water is inside and your colon is relaxed - meaning it's not telling you to evacuate now - you simply remove the hose nozzle from your ..uh...butt and roll over onto your right side. I then put my legs straight up into the air along with my back - so basically a shoulder stand. This allows the water to rush down the length of the descending colon. I then twist my torso and bend my legs to I begin to lean towards the right. This allows the water to flow along my transverse colon. I then drop my legs and torso towards the right and lay on my right side in a comfortable fetal position on my towels. This allows the water to sit in the ascending colon and wherever else it goes. If you have a large capacity enema bag, then the water can be all along the colon - which is ideal.
Simply lay there until you feel the urge to evacuate. When you do - just relax and let it go. Since the water is all the way over in your ascending colon, you may have to massage your abdomen from right side to up to over and then down the left side. Look at the photo above and youll understand what I mean.
This allows the water to move about. I also recommend having your feet up which aligns your rectum and descending colon allowing easier passage of colon contents. I use this squat toilet device. It works very well for me. In fact, I use it every day and have been for the past 1.5 years. It makes bowel movements go very quickly without straining. Read about it.
If your abdomen doesn't feel empty, it isn't. If you don't feel an urge. Get up and simply walk around your bathroom a little bit and also squat down or bend over to touch your toes. Once you feel the urge again, go. Keep doing this until you feel you're empty.
I took my peat bath right afterwards. That worked out well actually as the water was filling while I was doing my enema. Doing the peat bath after also makes good sense as the toxin load was much less as I just flushed them out with the enema. So my peat bath treatment was more effective and without side effects of headache and nausea.
I am going to make an appointment with a naturopathic physician who specializes in environmental medicine. I plan on doing a full heavy metal protocol with her. Basically I will be prescribed DMSA which pulls out heavy metals. It is a dangerous product as it can hurt your kidneys and liver if not monitored properly. We will put me on it and check my blood and urine. We will measure output of heavy metals via my urine and if some is found, then we continue the treatment until none is found.
That's it for now - except for one last key point.
I ate some wheat free soy sauce today on my rice and bean soup. Bad move. One because it is a processed food and two because it contained soy. I reacted to it. Since my body has not had it for some time, my rash on my inside left food acted up and itched like crazy. The tip of my tongue also turned red almost immediately and still is a few hours later. It hurts. So - I know I need to avoid soy for sometime. Basically what I need to do is repair my gut and chill out. I'm quite a busy person and not much rest...
Speaking of which...
Till tomorrow - off to bed as I've gotta rise early and study for a exam for my pediatrics class.
