THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: STRESSING OUT

LOOSING CLARITY IS EASY WHEN FEELING OVERWHELMED

One of the ways my health took a big hit was by putting others needs first. Also, comparing myself to to those who, I thought, put more of the needs of others first! Compounding that by comparing myself to others who were less well and more everything else. It is very easy to find people who are less well in appearance. Obesity, people with debilitating musculoskeletal problems of different ages, the aging population increasing, I think you get the idea. Also, as a bodyworker, yoga teacher, colon therapist, nutritional coach I always had people around me that I believed were in less better shape than I. Or that is how I saw them! On the surface this is how it often appeared. I also was a caregiver along with my husband for my father after he had a stroke. When his stroke occurred I was already in pretty dire pain with a repeated hip injury that involved the partial tears and damage to the surrounding area. My dad’s problems, and those surrounding the situation, seemed much worse than my own at the time. I did get help for my injury on many different levels while helping my dad, however, I was truly operating form a place of fear and the idea of stopping all together was not even a consideration in my mind.

WHY AM I WRITING THIS?

Facing how we deal with stress is relevant for everyone whether they realize it or not. Those who receive newsletters from Donna Pessin about The Unique Healing Program during the month of  July 2014,  may understand this post more specifically. The bottom line is that it is easy not to see our own needs when we are operating from a place of extreme pressure both internally and externally – stress. One thing that I still grapple with is wanting to control the outcome of those around me. I am much, much better at not doing this, but I still find it hard at times. It is very easy to loose touch with what our own needs are when there is the pressure pattern of believing that  we need to control others for us to be safe. Also, meeting the standards of what we feel others think we are supposed to do and resenting that often creates big anger. I am speaking as someone who is far from having this resolved, but more and more often questioning my motives for what I do.

I learned something from a Oprah Deepak meditation series that asked the participants to begin to question all actions with this one thought -” What is my INTENTION?” Asking this question has helped me stop and think before I take action. It has helped change interactions with people in many realms of my life. I hope this makes sense to some others reading this post. Getting the approval of others, calling someone who you know will  verify that [ as an example : )] the The Unique Healing Program is crazy, etcetera. The list can get pretty long. It has nothing and everything to do with The UHP!

I have found recently – the past few days- that upping the Calcium I take until I feel a real difference helps me tremendously. This is true of any of the crutches that are part of The Unique Healing Program. One of the issues with communicating with others, on or off UHP, is comparing what I am doing with them. Comparing myself, grading myself. It is crazy making.

I have a very long term insomnia history, about 8 years of interrupted sleep. I am recognizing the one reason for the insomnia is that I have a very large amount of acidity stored in my body. No kidding, right?  When weather, emotional stress, general body cleansing increases I need to not act like a stubborn child and make some changes in the dosage of  the supplements I am taking, and carbs I am eating. This may sound like common sense, and it is. I am glad I am willing to face it. Sort of embarrassing, but maybe some others will read this and have an “Ah Ha” moment.

HOW DO PEOPLE BREAKDOWN EMOTIONALLY AND PHYSICALLY?

I think the first paragraph of this post begins a discussion about this topic with some basic answers. I also feel that this world of daily amped up technological bombardment, pollution, the list is long increases the need for  some kind of constant support both physically, and emotionally. The idea of  there being no need for any of The Unique Healing Programs products or crutches on any level forever seems ludicrous to me. There are so many amazing companies that created products to enhance health. It is inspiring to me what many of these products could do for someone who has done The Unique Healing Program and is healing or healed their gut.

What do I know? Well, what I have observed in others and within myself  for the past decades. These observations tell me that needing help and asking for help are not so easy. That asking for help is very necessary to have a saner, happier and WAY less stressful life. I am working on it. If you are reading this you probably are, too.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: CLEANSING THE RIGHT WAY

RIGHT IS A HIGHLY  LOADED WORD

Some people think of Spring and Summer as the time to cleanse their bodies by eating lighter, eating more fruit, eating primarily or only raw foods, drinking freshly made juices, juice fasting, juice feasting, taking herbal concoctions. I have done all of these things and more over the past twenty five plus years. It just made sense. I really felt the need. What I did not realize was that the body is already in a stronger cleansing mode during Spring and Summer. I did not realize I was putting more pressure on my body by increasing the consumption of  fruits,  juicing fruits and vegetables and eating raw foods. Eating this way just made sense. I now realize it is more important to simplify and not add more burden to our bodies organs of elimination. What seemed like lightening up was actually creating a cascade of toxin pouring out of organs and tissues into my blood stream and  my already unhealthy gut. This is where the genius of taking the right amounts of Clay and certain types of  herbs is important for long term success in healing.

The Macrobiotic Approach of not eating raw fruits and vegetables daily in significant quantities, because they are  too cleansing and hard to digest, does make sense for many. This is especially true for those who are highly symptomatic. Unfortunately, most people misinterpret the Macro Diet as an invitation to amp up their complex carbs. In transitioning from The Standard American Diet to Macro it is understandable that people over eat better quality carbs to replace the refined ones to deal with their cravings. Hands down, no matter how you go about Macro, it is far healthier than The Standard American Diet, just by what it excludes.

SORRY FOLKS, BUT YOUR DIET ALONE WILL NOT HEAL A SICK GUT

Important point here: At this time in the world diet upgrades alone are not capable of creating deep healing for most anybody. I experience this is as being true for myself as an individual and practitioner. The old time cleansing in Spring and Summer, with the protocols I mentioned before, may have or may not have healed some cases of deep illness in centuries or decades past. In this present time, when our environment is constantly being barraged with toxins, and is barraging us with elements our bodies can not process, it is truly evident that healing with diet, as the primary protocol, does not work. A primary example being that people go on a juice feast, juice fast or smoothie cleanse and end up on antibiotics soon after because they became sick or highly symptomatic. The Macro Approach needs some help in addressing deeper cleansing. Clay, herbs and a natural antibiotic substance [Colloidal Silver is one] are answers that I can personally say yields results. What results? A better functioning gut to assure better assured cellular cleansing.  Healing plays out differently for every single person who partakes on The Unique Healing Program. That is all I got. You have to try The UHP for yourself.

DEEP HEALING ON A CELLULAR LEVEL

In summary, what seems intuitively correct for many, in my experience with myself and others, is not the way to cure illness and heal the deepest recesses of our cells, organs, tissues and blood. Check out The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin. The UHP may challenge your every impression and belief about what healing is and can be. I hope it does. I hope you take the time to give The Unique Healing Program a chance. It is worth it, but you need to trust and have faith in your decision to do it. Through this process you will begin to understand your own instincts and experiences. This program will question all of what you think you know about many things. I can tell you one thing for sure, and that is that  it takes time and experience on The UHP to truly understand how it works. It is not an easy process, but I don’t think anything we learn from is an initial slam dunk.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: TOP FIVE DIET TIPS PART 3

THIS IS THE THIRD AND “LAST” POST ON THIS DONNA PESSIN – UHP VIDEO

TIP NUMBER FOUR: DON’T UP YOUR CARBS

This is the most problematic of all the aspects of the dietary regime spoken or unspoken  The Unique Healing Program books and videos. Why? I you are already eating a whole lot of carbs it may not be so easy stop while drinking clay and taking the rest of these supplements – “crutches”. It is like giving up the binky for a toddler. If you have eaten a low carb diet previously you may have some improvement in symptoms from taking the clay, etcetera. It is easy, when this happens on the program to add too many carbs. I did this and it was not a disaster, but I had to cut the carbs back. Way back a few times. When feeling better, I was amazed at how I could eat more complex, healthy carbs and not have an increase of symptoms. What carbs? Sprouted whole grain bread, some yogurt, low glycemic fruit like strawberries and blueberries. It was pretty limited, but gave me more variety. Soon I started experimenting with whole grain non-sprotued bread, a croissant, a bit of coffee [organic 1/2 cup with milk] on weekends, salsa and who knows what else. Skin rashes and other symptoms yelled back and I got the message. There was not enough clay I could ingest to sop that all up. There was enough acidity caged up inside my cells already. Wasn’t worth the discomfort. At that point I was ingesting 16- 18 tbs of UHP Body Bentonite Clay.

In summary, don’t expect the clay to do instant miracles. It is doing miracles and that is saving you from future serious illness. I do believe that about clay and so have many other healers throughout the ages. Donna Pessin gives credit to Beranard Jensen and other teachers who helped her through her journey to health and design of The Unique Healing Program. So, remember that vegetables are more alkaline and accompany all your meals with something green and more alkaline forming. I can not stress this enough. Small amounts are fine. Green Powders and Liquid Chlorophyll are all good.

More about Bernard Jensen here.

Watch the video and listen for when Donna Pessin says that it will take 6 to 18 months on her program to introduce more carbs and feel and look good doing so. I swear she says this.

TIP NUMBER FIVE: BE PATIENT – I CAN FEEL A WHOLE LOT OF EYE ROLLING

This tip alone deserves a post of its own and I have written one about patience in the past.

Here is one important point that she makes and that is that patience now, will pay off down the line. So, DON’T COMPLETELY BAIL ON THE PROGRAM. Do it at whatever level you can. If you feel like you have had enough already, then take a complete break, use less clay and products for awhile, or eat more widely and do the program on whatever level you can. Our bodies will tell us what to do. Aside from this program I can not suggest anything else that does not need clay and the UHP herbs to be of major assistance. Yes, people taking meds benefit from this program. You do need to know when and how to take clay and herbs when using meds. An appointment with Donna Pessin is what I would recommend.

Also, other programs rely on diet and diet manipulation to produce results short and long term. Why? Because they do not heal serious long term gut dysfunction. That does not mean that eating simple and clean will not help you feel better as you heal. Also, Donna Pessin specifically mentions that food craving will decrease, but this will take time. She stresses this in the video.

Watch the bloody video. You will probably need to watch it again and again. It took decades to get us all into the state we are in. This is a global issue. You are not alone. Somewhere in this journey I am sure you will have more days you are rejoicing you found The Unique Healing Program and less days cursing it. This is my experience.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: TOP FIVE DET TIPS PART 2

TIP ONE: EAT LOTS OF HEALTHY VEGETABLES AND FATS

All of  The Unique Healing Program videos advice are a sure bet for what is true for many, but what  is recommended may not work for you. Either have a consult with Donna Pessin, or get very  organized and keep a journal of what is not working and make some changes. It is important to get the results you are looking for. Dietary recommendations are not universal. Not all leafy greens and other vegetables are created equal. Understanding Oxalates, vegetables high in Oxalic Acid may help you. Vegetables are not the only foods high in Oxalic Acid. For more detailed information and support in understanding Oxalates.

Important thing to note. Many people want to go on a fast track while on The Unique Healing Program. They want to loose or gain weight while healing their gut. I am pretty damn sure that there is no fast track to healing an unhealthy bowel. So, you may have to accept not looking or feeling your best for awhile. How were you looking, and most important feeling, before starting UHP? I am not trying to be obnoxious here, just honest. A little self love and self acceptance goes a long way. I am working on this one, too.

TIP ONE: EAT MORE  HEALTHY FATS AND VEGETABLES

Eating too many fats can cause problems and not eating enough can as well. Easing lots of vegetables with fat and lots of vegetables with no fat can also not work. Mostly what you are looking at here is loose stools or constipation. Too many fats can cause, for some, stools to be loose to diarrhea. For others the fats can cause a sluggishness for the liver and constipation.There are more complicated explanations, but that’s the heart of it.  Anyway this is where the correct amounts of Sodium Bentonite Clay, Bowel Strength and other crutches come into play. How do you know what correct amounts for you are? A Donna Pessin personal consult can help, reading her books, videos, and good ole trial and error. What we need changes as does what is coming out of our organs, etcetera. Wish I had a quicker and easier route.

I have heard from some people on The Unique Healing Program that eating many vegetables is not good for them and they use green powders to obtain more greens in their diet. Some use Liquid ChlorophyllHere is a link to a blended salad for easier digestibility.You can dress it up with other ingredients.

If animal proteins are too highly acidic and most carbs are too cleansing then what do we eat to feel our best? Generally, eating animal protein in small amounts is the best way to go.  If I do eat beef,  turkey or chicken  it is usually less than four ounces. I do not eat animal protein every day. I eat cheese, avocado, soft cooked eggs. I use small amounts of nut butter on occasion. Nuts are not so easy for me to digest. I find cheese and butter easy to digest. Whatever I eat I always use HCL Pepsin before meals to help with digestion. I chew really well and always eat something green with every meal, even breakfast. If I have a sandwich I use sprouted grain bread or gluten free bread. Sort of boring, but until my digestion is more improved it is way better than on and off indigestion.

TIP TWO: LESSEN THE ACIDITY OF YOUR DIET

Eating out often, unless it is at a truly organic restaurant has many stumbling blocks. Milk, regular table salt, wine or white vinegar, tomato sauce, hot sauce, FOOD COOKED IN CHEAP OILS, and many other condiments and foods are MORE HIGHLY ACID FORMING. The upshot from that is an increase in symptoms that drove us all to this program in the first place. Watch the video and read the books. Understand what constitutes MORE  HIGHLY ACID FORMING FOODS and beverages. Another thing to do, right? This one will ultimately save you time in the future and help you feel better sooner.

I have found that as I go along on this Unique Healing Program things change with what I feel well eating. An example would be that eggs prepared any other way than soft boiled would not work for awhile. Eating dense protein after 3-4 pm was okay and then not so much for awhile. Indigestion just from drinking the clay in the morning was something that I experienced in the first few months of the program. I have been able to eat more carbs as time has gone on, but if my ear itching or OCD’ish tendencies return I know it is time to cut way back. If something does not work anymore, change. Not so easy sometimes, right?

TIP THREE:  EAT EASY TO DIGEST FOODS TO MAKE HEALING EASIER

If all your cellular energy is used for digestion it will slow down your healing process. Which means that the simpler you eat the more energy your body has to heal.

Sleep is when the the body heals and repairs. Increased symptoms will rear their head in the morning. Good reason to eat light and eat foods that are less acid forming. Eating greens at every meal helps. Eating lighter helps. If you are starved in the morning and crave a denser protein meal, eat some greens with your eggs or other protein. Use Spirulina or other green foods to get protein in a smoothie. Eating fruit in the morning can cause more cleansing symptoms at a time when the body is already overwhelmed. Eating fruit or right after a protein rich meal is a poor food combo for people who already have digestive ills.

Chew, chew, chew and breathe. Chewing is the first part of digestion and what human teeth are for. Also, you may find it news that our bodies cleanse mostly through our breath. No, I am not kidding. So, breathing more consciously and often will take pressure off the other organs of excretion. I did not make this up. Also, breathing helps to tone the colon and stimulate peristalsis. So easy to forget to breathe. Staring at the computer or tv screen does not help. I need to write this and reread it to remind myself.

WHY THIS PROGRAM WORKS VIDEO BY DONNA PESSIN

Is an important video for people to watch AT LEAST twice. You probably should go back and watch it whenever you wonder, WHY AM I DOING THIS PROGRAM? Or, when you are trying to explain to someone else why you are doing Then Unique Healing Program, or why they “should”. Maybe reconsider explaining or convincing others. This could get into a really unpleasant “discussion” : ). Just tell them to watch the video, it is way easier.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: THAT BLOATED FEELING

FEELING FAT OR THINLY FRAIL, BLOATING IS OFTEN PART OF THE PACKAGE

This is the most direct way I could come up with to verbally hit the nail on the head.  In my experience when people are not well they either feel like they are fat and bloated or fragile and bloated. They look different, but are in some ways very similar. Blowing up – bloating, gaining weight does not connect to sickness in the collective mind of society, but getting thinner when not feeling well gets people really fearful that something is very wrong. Cancer and other words synonymous with death come to mind. Wow, this is getting depressing. I don’t mean it to be. I am just being real in terms of my experience with myself and others who are in the process of  healing. Also, this is my experience with those who have been chronically ill and recovering from life threatening illnesses. So, what am I trying to say here? Well, in terms of this Unique Healing Program you are most likely in one of these camps: Feeling fat and bloated or thin and frail. And yes, you can be frail and bloated. Most people today are either emotionally numbed out or agitated. Pharmaceutical, recreational drug and alcohol sales verify that those words describe a large part of the developed world population. If you are on The UHP or other healing program, searching for an solution to health problems, or considering some different kind of action to feel better, that is truly awesome.

GOOD NEWS! FEELING FAT OR FRAIL IS NOT A PERMANENT STATE WHEN HEALING

When accumulated toxins in our bodies are not being controlled  by a high protein, often cancer causing diet, we eventually begin to develop symptoms. This can be dealt with in two ways: Either you are on a path to heal without drugs or surgery, or you go to a doctor to get meds to “make symptoms go away” until you need stronger drugs or surgery. Many things can trigger symptoms. An excess consumption of anything that puts stress on our already overwhelmed immune systems causes symptoms. Emotional stress, travel, travel by plane, recreational drugs, alcohol, eating foods that put those already stressed organs in overdrive. Junk food, spicy food, juice fasting, juice feasting, a fruitarian diet. Basically any shock to our system. Depending on our personal circumstances it may not take much to get pushed into being symptomatic. Symptomatic meaning, rashes, mood swings, weight fluctuations, insomnia, dental pain, acne, etcetera. Cleansing needs something to absorb the out pouring of wastes. Sodium Bentonite Clay, in the right amounts, does this. However, it does it at its own pace.

The Unique Healing Program is not a fast process. Consider your time on the planet [age], all the meals you may have eaten, meds you have taken, pollutants are environmental toxins we are all so often unknowingly subjected to, family health history, the person[s] you are living with, sexual partners, hospital visits, pets, etcetera. There is no calculator or personal memory to add this and up and make real sense of it all. If you are doing The Unique Healing Program with children it will force you to look at family health history of you entire lines. Having an obviously ill child can be an amazing life saving gift for you and your family. No, I am not just looking for rainbows in the dark. My experience is this is all true.

WEIGHT

How do toxins make weight rise? My own experience before and since The UHP [plus my interpretation of what I believe Donna Pessin says] is that this happens as the body holds onto water and fat to protect our cells from being ravaged by acidity, aka un-eliminated and built- up waste products. Holding onto water and fats is a way of diluting these poisons. Acidity is what happens when the organs of excretion can not do their job and waste matter of all kinds builds and builds in ALL  the cells of our body. One example of this going out of control is, what is commonly know as Gout. Gout is what is often seen in people with Diabetes or are Pre-Diabetes. All these fancy words like Gout and Diabetes are other ways of saying that the organs of our body have become hard and encrusted or limp and weak. Not an attractive mental picture. Gout, which is commonly seen in the ankles, says volume about poor circulation and how poisons accumulate in the lower legs. It is called GRAVITY.

MORE ON WEIGHT

Weight gain and  fluctuations are a deeper comment on Kidney and bladder function. The kidneys carry a much deeper relevance in Chinese – Traditional Asian Medicine. The kidneys are said to hold our life force, called Jing. I think it  is worth pointing out how the ability to walk and bladder function traditionally decline in people who have failing health as they get older. This can happen at any age when deep sickness is present. AIDS, Cancer and other neurologically based illnesses are the most potent examples of this in people of all ages who have full blown chronic illness.

INABILITY TO GAIN WEIGHT

Most people think of weight problems as the inability to loose weight, and this is understandable. Not being able to gain weight is just as problematic. The feelings of not being in control in both these situations is deeply frustrating. Eating food and not gaining weight often pairs up down the line [aging] with lack of appetite and not being able to consume enough whole foods to gain weight. More serious health problems ensue that often look like this: a big bloated gut and spindly limbs. It is a depressing visual. The inability to absorb nutrients and gain weight, as years go by, can only be understood by experiencing it yourself, with loved ones or clinically with clients- patients. In my late teens and twenties I always had an extra 5 to 15 pounds that I would be exercising or watching what I ate to control. I completely did not understand the eat anything and not gain weight “problem”. I did not experience eating things one likes judiciously and maintaining a healthy weight. Why? My digestion sucked. I did not understand the problem of eating to gain weight and having no results. Both are all unhealthy gut symptoms. That is it, period and exclamation point. Without a healthy gut both ends of the weight gain and inability to gain spectrum, creates a life of constant food preoccupation that will be a constant unwanted companion. It is not fun and will only lead to more very serious health problems. I am stepping off the soapbox here.

Healing the gut is the only way to go. The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin. To get there you will experience some pretty strong highs and lows both physically and emotionally. Just know that you are not alone and that all this can and will lead to healing an all too common problem in our society. TASS.

Some ideas about what might help with “The Bloat” in the next post. Hope to make is shorter than this one.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: TOP FIVE DIET TIPS VIDEO PART ONE

A BREAKDOWN OF THE TOP 5 DIET TIPS VIDEO:  PART ONE : )

After listening to Donna Pessins video I completely understand why she tells people to watch and listen over and over and over and over again. I hear words and ideas from where I am at the time in my experience. If you listen closely to what she says, she paints a picture with a broad and specific brush. I am starting backwards here, and I hope you will see why.

The end comment from Donna Pessin:

“THERE IS NOTHING YOUR ARE EATING DURING THIS [ UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM] PROCESS TO STOP THE BODY BENTONITE, BOWEL STRENGTH, ETCETERA FROM HEALING YOU BOWEL AND BODY”.

“YOU ARE NOT OFFSETTING THE HEALING OF THE BODY [WHILE USING THE UHP PRODUCTS] IF YOU DRINK THREE CUPS OF COFFE. YOU ARE NOT OFFSETTING THE HEALING PROPERTIES OF THESE PRODUCTS BY DOING SO”.

It seems to me she is saying your body will still heal, even if you are consuming acid forming foods. That does not mean you will feel good while on the program while doing that. Big confusion here because it is often said, in other videos and The UHP books, that you can look and feel better on The UHP while you heal. You will heal if you eat lousy, but you will most likely feel lousy – lousier if you eat and drink acid forming foods. How is that? Bummer.

In summary: The toxins inside the organs, tissues and all cells are being directly targeted by the Sodium Bentonite Clay, Bowel Strength, and other UHP products. These products will continue to work even if you eat crappy. Why? Because in comparison to the toxic elements inside all of us that are being stored in the organs, the coffee or other acidic foods pale in volume to  one another. Again, you can eat these acid forming foods, but you will most likely not feel well, but the clay, herbs, etcetera will still do their job.

ONE MORE TIME FOR CLARITY

If you have been eating lots of acid forming foods [coffee, alcohol, meat, sugar, other refined foods] it can be difficult [understatement] to give up everything cold turkey, do UHP, and feel like a million bucks. So, do the best you can and know that you may not feel great, but the detox is happening on a deeper level. Whew!

Okay, thought I would go for the big nugget at the end of the video and the one  misunderstanding that dwells in the minds of many people on The Unique Healing Program.

More later on the other points covered in this video by Donna Pessin.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO FEEL BETTER WHILE ON THIS PROGRAM?

EVERYTHING IS A PROCESS

I just watched the new video by Donna Pessin about this same subject. There are many variables that can speed up and slow down some people on this UHP journey. Here are a few things to consider:

Stress in our lives such as work, other people : ) raising children, marriage, divorce, all personal relationships, finances, death and sickness in our circles, the “NEWS”, technology and exposure to electro magnetic fields and more. It is how we handle these things that makes a big difference. I can tell you first hand that one year and change on this UHP and I am often handling life stress better, but during that first year I had a tough time. In all honesty, not much worse than  it was before I started The UHP. It is often hard to rewind and remember how things were before starting The Unique Healing Program.

Exposure to pollutants and other variables that we are usually not fully aware of. Don’t focus too much about this one. It can be overwhelming. It does have a huge effect on every aspect of our lives. Living in Beijing, China is a most obvious example of air pollution  and its effect on people and what people are willing to put up with. What many feel they have a limited choice over. I do believe this all is in the process of changing.

ONE IDEA TO HELP HEAL MORE EFFICIENTLY

I have learned was to lie down and rest. Do nothing except relax and breathe. Yes, it really helps, even for 5- 10 minutes at a time.

CLAY AND THE CRUTCHES

I have definitely found that decreasing the amount of clay I was taking was helped by amping up some of the crutches. Helped me feel better and tone down my symptoms. I went from 12-18 tbsp  of clay a day to as low as 6-8. I did hat because I hit a wall and just could not drink anymore and eat. Also, I felt blocked and frustrated. I do use Magnesium Citrate everyday in the evening to help make sure my gut moves in the morning. I think I am going to try going up in dosage with the Clay again soon. Not a huge amount. Keep you posted.

Also, I do know of a few people doing this UHP and doing it at their own pace with 2-4 tbsp of clay, 6-8 herbs, some of the crutches and presently no Colloidal Silver. They seem to be doing okay. Remember, we are all very different and that needs to be understood. We are humans not machines.

Besides the Bowel Strength and Sodium Bentonite Clay, the other crutches that helped me the most were / are the Cal Cit [ just added a bit of Cal Carb to what I am taking], GABA and L-Theaniane and homemade Colloidal Silver. I use the NOW powders for these supplements. Pills are hard for me to consume in large doses. I feel powders are more easily assimilated.

My own experience tells me that  a simpler diet can help most people have less potent symptoms. Wheat, yeast in bread of all kinds, sugar, coffee  and alcohol can tweak symptoms. Sometimes they do not when consumed a few times a weekor on occasion. Coffee is something I can NOT handle well at all and avoid all together. There have been periods on UHP where it was clear that consuming wheat based flour products or any grain was not helping. Time to give it a break.  AT A CERTAIN POINT drinking more clay was not the short term answer for me to feeling better. It may be for you. More Clay has been of help at times. This is where experimentation and patience are key.

Coffee that may work for you and has little acid is something I heard about from a UHP friend. Try to find that info and put the link here. Until then, here is  similar kind of coffee I found online.

If this UHP has taught me anything it is patience, or  how little patience I can have. I think the one thought many of us on UHP or other programs MAY share is – WHY AM I PAYING TO FEEL SO LOUSY? This may not be a conscious thought or one that you may feel is true. Fine, but if you do feel this way, stop,rewind and remember how not so good you felt prior to UHP. As I have written before, things must not have been so good  to even consider drinking clay, eating herbs and all the other things one needs to work towards feeling better without taking drugs or medications. I know drugs of all kinds do not provide long term healing. Long term medication are numbing band- aids.

THE MEDICAL APPROACH TO ILLNESS IS WARLIKE

Also, it is insane that people think drinking clay is insane! What modern medicine asks of  patients seems truly absurd. In the case of Chemotherapy and Radiation the protocol description might go something like this:

We [ the doctors] are going to give you poison. You will very likely feel horrible. These treatments will do some non-repairable damage to your cells and you MAY not live through the treatments. BTW, it will cost a fortune, you will probably loose your hair and look really bad at the same time. This process may involve having some body parts removed. P.S. The cancer may return and we will repeat the whole process over again.

Now that is pretty crazy if I do say so myself. Crazier than The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin Protocol? You tell me.
