THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: HOW FAST CAN I HEAL ON THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM?

OR ON  ANY HEALING – DETOXIFICATION PROGRAM?

Urine and blood testing for steroids or recreational drugs, or any substance does not begin to tell the complete story of these and other chemicals in our body. Drugs and medications, as examples, enter our blood stream and that blood goes through our entire body. All organs, organs of filtration such as the kidneys, liver and lungs are continuously exposed. So, when we take prescribed medications, over the counter drugs, recreational drugs, are exposed to heavy metals, pollutants, antibiotics through farm factory meat consumption, these substances become a part of us. These substances leave a huge stain on the personal ecosystem we call our body. All that Motrin, Advil, Bayer aspirin, ectetera, taken often or daily, does not wash out with each use.

MOST LIKELY NOT YOUR COMMON – EVERYDAY CONVERSATION

What we ingest, breathe in, and absorb through our skin makes up the quality of our cells, our blood. The blood that goes through the rest of our body goes through our brain and effects how we perceive the world around us.  These drugs and other substances leave their mark, a residue. That is the minimum of effect. Some might say damage. All that we consume consciously or unconsciously leaves an imprint.  This is surprising to many people for a variety of reason. Water is the substance that we are told washes everything out of our body, but how can that be?  On a very simplistic level of explanation, laundry needs detergent or some kind of solvent to clean. Why?  Because many substances we encounter are not water soluable. Petroleum, as an example, is not washed out of the body or anywhere else with water alone. We barely want to discuss urinating toxins out of our bodies. Any other form of exit is deemed disgusting. The gut, bowel, intestines, mucus discharge, menses, skin rashes, are not widely discussed or even mentioned between friends, family and spouses. Prescribed, over the counter and recreational drugs are the same in many respects. This is why heroine addicts, smokers, alcoholics, food addicts, sugar addicts, takers of pain killers and other medications have withdrawal. People who drink coffee or use sugar have withdrawal. Maybe you are one of these people? Maybe you are and just don’t realize it. I am damn sure that we have all been, or are addicts to one of these categories of chemicals.

So, if you take drugs/medications, any addictive substance that has any mood altering effects, if you eat, drink or breathe you are creating a template of toxins within your body. These toxins have an indeterminable shelf life of sorts. Give this some thought when you are considering what to do about healing your body. Consider this if you are part of a healing protocol such as The Unique Healing Program. Consider all the layers of toxins collecting for years. Mull this one over when The Unique Healing Program seems to not be helping your healing fast enough. The Sodium Bentonite Clay [Body Bentonite] and Berberine based herbs [Bowel Strength] are absorbing toxins and nullifying bacteria that would otherwise be recirculating. The SBC and herbs heal in stages as toxins are absorbed and released. These toxins or acids, without the clay and herbs, will continue to be harnessed by our body in organs, by creating tumors, cysts, etcetera to protect us. The body is designed to keep going. We are programed for survival. The survival instinct along with modern medical technology can keep an unconscious individual alive for a very long time. One can hang on at a level of life that is not creative, or at all attractive in any way to most anyone I know.

Healing takes time because it took time and concentration of toxic materials to get us to where we are. It is sort of that simple. There is more involved, but those issues are as individual as there are stars in the sky. Pretty daunting, right? So start somewhere. The body, while you are still able to make your own decisions, is the primary place to begin.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: WHY CHOOSE THIS PROGRAM?

Maybe you shouldn’t. It is not an easy road, but what road to healing is? Here are some things you might identify with to help you decide.

Early in life I became aware that my gut was not functioning well [constipation]. I remember feeling uncomfortable as a child. I started my search of answers for better health in my later teens because I could no longer push through, feel and appear strong without the use of stimulants. I am talking about caffeine and sugar. Focus and stamina for dance and athletics started to slightly wane when I was in my late teens and early 20’s. Looking back, I realize my stamina and focus were never really that strong. Caffeine or any other herbal stimulants made me feel very speedy, sometimes euphoric and then crash. Not sleeping well when using caffeine helped me cut it out early in life.  I just knew through my family, friends and work [later in life]  that stimulants could not be part of a frequent plan for me if I wanted to have long term relationships of any kind… : )

TWO AND TWO CAN EQUAL WHATEVER YOU WANT IT TO

Why do people accept equating aging and growing older with physical suffering? Well, look around!  Come on, it is all around us! Is there a choice? It does not look like there is for the greater part of our population, and that is being kind. Alternatives usually revolve around eating a very limited diet and living an austere lifestyles. More separation, isolation and a huge effort that does not, in my view, often lead to healing. A lifestyle that does not seem to be completely worth the effort. There are exceptions. So, the answer is the obviously sad one, we just don’t believe it is possible to age well and not die in an indignant way. Remember, this is not  the reality for everyone, but nursing homes are big business these day. The presence of nursing homes, like prisons, is increasing.

KEEPING UP WITH THE JONES’

What other people think determines too much for us and advertising is the proof. Social pressure has had a great influence on me, and I have been described by others as someone who does not care what others think. Not true. I have always grappled with making decisions from a place of what was best for me. Often resenting others judgements of my choices, or what I thought were their judgements!  Not a good focus. Maybe you can identify? Anyway, I must have made strides because I am writing this post and all the others on this site. Some are pretty revealing. I am completely on board to do what is best for me and not care what others think, especially since starting The Unique Healing Program. Drinking Sodium Bentonite Clay is not  a graspable concept to most people. Hell, giving up coffee for many is inconceivable.

HOW DID I GET TO WHERE I AM WITH MY HEALTH?

Well, my activities and way of life stretched me beyond what I was capable of physically and emotionally. Normal life in much of the USA. Lifestyle, work, exercise, daily life, diet choices felt increasingly stressful. Why? Well, maybe because appearing weak was not an option in my family, school, socially. Greatly influenced by my parents, two people who would keep going no matter what the cost. Something to be admired in our American society. An unspoken behavior, that I was introduced to in the womb. Yes, that early. Eventually all that  daily pushing forward lead to my body talking back. I needed help and I did not know how to ask for it. If I asked for help that meant something was wrong. I did help myself in many ways, but it all came from a place of living life like a checklist. I only felt good when I was getting things done. I still feel that way, but it is much different. I have learned to be kinder to myself. It was either that or a very unhappy ending.

Why do The Unique Healing Program? I actually can not give one, easy to digest and absorb reason. You may be someone who just feels this is the way to go. There are people on The UHP who fit into that category, but usually it is accompanied, for some, with the emotion of fed-upness and feeling lousy. You could be a person that has no other options with the medical world, someone who feels the medical lane is just one big traffic jam with no off lane in sight. You might be someone like me who has pursued the Alternative Route [the list is long for me] for many years. Prior to finding UHP I had put together similar components to the ones in this program, but the amount of the ingredients were not effective. The words and similar experience to mine of Donna Pessin told me this program was the answer for me. I really had no  doubt that the basic structure of this program would lead to healing my body, mind and spirit.

Read The UHP books [start with the first one], watch The UHP videos, and do some soul searching. After that, consider giving The Unique Healing Program a try.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: PAIN MANAGEMENT VS HEALING

DON’T JUDGE UNTIL I HAVE WALKED IN THEIR SHOES

I have had a long term injury and pain for over a decade. Because of my discomfort I have come to understand why people take pain medications, numbing injections, and have surgery. I did not  take pain meds, have injections or have surgery because of all my work as a bodyworker, yoga teacher and colon therapist. I saw firsthand that the medical approach to pain only led to short term relief, more pain, injections and surgery. What I write here, I am hoping, will speak to people who have had surgeries and those who are looking for an alternative to taking pharmaceuticals long term, injections and surgery. There is hope for everyone, even if you have had joints replaced, amputations and other medical intervention.

PAIN MANAGEMENT VS HEALING

Taking medications or drugs, prescriptive meds are drugs, is not a long term solution for chronic or reoccurring acute inflammation. Joint and body pain that is not being treated with a long term healing plan, such as The Unique Healing Program, is all about numbing. Long term use of oral medications, numbing injections most usually leads to surgery down the line. All these ways of dealing with pain do not get to the root of pain, which is inflammation, and often lead to other serious illnesses. Drugs that help to diminish pain while on a deep healing program, like The UHP, are drugs that are being taken with a long term goal in mind. This goal is to help live life while healing. Drugs given for numbing as a long term plan are dangerous for a number of reasons.

HERE WE GO

A Primary reason for not using numbing drugs long term with no real healing plan in place is simple. People can not feel what is really going on and continue to re-injure themselves. Also known as not living life on the sidelines. I understand that reasonoing, but the drugs are not healing they are numbing. This is a very tough subject to discuss because it is extremely personal to each individual and often gets a very defensive emotional response. What does that mean?  Healing means different things to different people, and one has to believe that our bodies can heal. That is not a belief that many people hold. Masking pain long term is not healing.

AN EXAMPLE

I had a client in NYC who was taking Celebrex for a few years for arthritic pain that she felt most strongly in her knees. She had a very agitated disposition. Why? Because she had inflammation throughout her entire body which includes the nervous system. The numbing drugs numb and do not heal. They eventually do become injurious to organs. The television commercials for medications tell you this. The message is sadly laughable. Down the line injury to organs is one of the inconvenient truths of medication for inflammation. Anyway, this person needed a “minor” medical procedure  [D & C] and was told to stop the Celebrex for a period of time prior to the surgery. To get to the point, no Celebrex meant she could finally feel the pain in her knees. She could not  walk without unbearable  pain right before and after the surgery. It was clear that her knees were five alarm inflamed. The Celebrex was enabling her to continuously re-injure herself. Outcome: she had both knees replaced and after that her hips. At the time she was in her mid 50’s.

In order to pursue a full body healing, similar to the woman I just described, you have to believe healing can take place. You have to believe that even if you have had joints replaced you can avoid having others replaced. You have to believe that a  healthier GI tract – gut- bowel organs, blood and cells will keep your joints, joint replacements, amputations, dental implants, face lift procedures in much better condition. A more balanced over all body PH will lead to a more balanced life and healing. You have to be sick and tired of hurting, and that is just the beginning.

Healing with The UHP is not fast and easy, but the other way I just described is not a solution for those that know it will ultimately cause more damage down the line. Many know that the drug- surgery  path it is not  a solution because they are living it everyday in pain. I said many, not everyone. There may be exceptions. Again, you can have had medical intervention that saved your life. What you do after that will determine the quality of your life.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: HEALING ARTHRITIC PAIN

CAN YOU RESOLVE ARTHRITIC JOINT PAIN ON THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM?

I believe the answer is yes. Several other programs I have tried made great sense to me because they spoke of improving digestive and bowel function, but they did not restore my peristalsis [ I remained chronically constipated] and those programs did not reduce my pain. One particular  program is The Body Ecology Diet. Do I think The BED can work for some people?  Yes, I think could. However, if someone has had long term, chronic joint pain for years I would be surprised if it did. Why? BED does not use Sodium Bentonite Clay to absorb the acidity that helps cause pain. I say for most the answer is no. Why?  Because chronic long term pain was my story, and The BED did not work for me. Also, I did pursue BED diligently for three or more years. What I did previously to BED is something I have written about in past posts. A number of decades of seeking better health and wellness are documented in much of what I have written here at notyourrawmama.

Do I think one can resolve pain on The Unique Healing Program? Again, I will say  yes, but it will take time, effort and patience. How long? Two to five or more years is an honest assessment, with improvements that make it clear you are getting better after the first several months, one year or a bit longer. My experience is that The Unique Healing Program does work, but may need tweaking. I have used colonics, homeopathy and massage, clay baths, and more  to help me heal. Primarily, The Unique Healing Program is the only long term cleansing and health rebuilding program that gave me consistent results in having a healthier gut from the beginning. Nothing else I did helped my bowels to move regularly. I have a long history of seeking an answer. Is my story yours? Of course not. Your healing timeline is yours alone.

The cleansing process of the body is never without highs and lows. What your experience will be is deeply connected to your  quality of health and family health history, and what else got you there. The Unique Healing Program is a comprehensive rebuilding of the digestive and elimination system. How many years you or I have been on this planet, and so many other factors come into play in determining how long it will take to be out of pain. I am not there yet, but the improvement is consistently building. I  do wish it was faster. Greater patience on The UHP has been one of  my biggest gains. Recognizing why people want a quick fix from the deepest part of my own impatience is really an eye opener. Builds my compassion for those who choose the doctor – pharmaceutical approach.

ARTHRITIS IS INFLAMMATION

If you have inflammation in any part of your body in any way, shape or form you are probably a candidate for arthritis. Indigestion, acid reflux, bladder infections, acne, rashes, painful periods, headaches, migranes, muscle spasms, insomnia, etcetera. All the “normal” maladies that many think are normal. They seem normal because so many people have them. They seem normal cause that is what we are told and sometimes what to believe. Again, inflammation is inflammation, and if you are reliant on Motrin, Aleve , Bayer or Excedrin, on a daily basis, you have an inflamed condition. You are probably one minor injury away from having non-stop pain. Also known as Arthritis.

SOME MISUNDERSTANDINGS ABOUT THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM

If you have tried everything else and nothing has worked  you are not alone. All of  these programs, that have promised pain relief and you have been on the search for more than one to five years, join the growing club. The truth of The Unique Healing Program is that it takes time to heal inflammation on the deepest level. You could be an exception and if you are, please let me know. I am jealously happy for you. Here are a few things to consider about The Unique Healing Program if you are on it or considering it:

You can not eat any old thing if you want and get better in the most timely way on The UHP. Donna Pessin says that in her videos. Listen closely and read the books more than once to see what I am talking most specifically about. Top 5 Diet Tips video . You CAN eat some nourishing foods that other programs say no to, but there is NO guarantee that you will not feel it. The clay is a healing agent not an instant miracle cure, although some would argue with that.

At the risk of sounding like I am repeating myself from the above statement: You can NOT take clay to make up for indigestion producing food choices on an ongoing or daily basis, or  maybe at all while on The Unique Healing Program.  It may work on occasion, but not long term. If you have had a food addiction you can use the clay that way for awhile, but it is NOT a long term plan. Burp.

To heal pain and inflammation on The UHP more quickly, and that is soooooo subjective, the clay needs to do its job and heal the systems of digestion and elimination. If the body has to deal with more added acid from acid forming foods, the process will, in my estimate,  just take that much longer. Boo, hiss – sorry, but I am as sure as hell this is true. Also, remember that Pain and Inflammation must first be lessened in the organs of digestion and elimination to  positively effect the joints of the body. A drag.

Wrapping up here on this subject, for now. In summary, Pain and Inflammation are a result of a poor functioning Digestive System, a sluggish Bowel, and backed up System of Organs. All this results in Blood that is low in oxygen and nutrients that all our cells crave and need.

So, Pain takes time to heal and the diminishment of pain is a reflection of the healing progress of  the rest of the body systems. So, the intensity of pain and discomfort of any kind, not just Arthritic pain, is a good barometer in determining overall health. Ongoing Pain and Vitality do not coexist in the same body for long without one winning over the other.

Keep on driving the bus forward, as Donna Pessin says.
