DETOXING MERCURY AND MOLDS: KALCKER AND KLINGHARDT PROTOCOLS

ENHANCING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF HEAVY METAL DETOX

The Klinghardt Mercury Detox Protocol, as described in this link, succinctly spells out the steps for Mercury Detox. If you are feeling overwhelmed, reading this protocol can help reduce that feeling. Overwhelm is the feeling associated with one more thing to do, often when a person is not in good health. The lightening of this feeling may not happen the first time you read it. The second on third going over will unveil The Klinghardt simplicity. Also, more and more people are realizing that creating better health is a lifetime process. With that acknowledged, the steps in the Klinghardt Protocol have definitley helped me feel less overwhelmed.  Some of the ingredients involved in this Mercury Detox Protocol may be familiar. It is the quality and amounts of the prescribed ingredients that make a difference. All one can do is experiment. The other option is to confer with a Klinghardt Practitioner. Ultimately, we are pretty much on our own, no matter what kind of healthcare or sick-care we choose. If you trust your intuition you are never really alone in any decision making process. I have to remind myself of this often. Anyway, as of right now I am using the Chlorella, Cilantro and Omega 3 aspects of the Klinghardt Program.

SOME SIMPLE INGREDIENTS

I have been aware of using Chlorella and Cilantro for years. I like Cilantro, but I always disliked the taste of  Chlorella. My experience tells me we often do not like what we need, especially in a therapeutic situation. Other programs that I have been involved with do discuss Heavy Metal Detoxification. The Longevity Now Program by David Wolfe centers around it. Some others are the Body Ecology Diet, Andreas Moritz’s Liver Flushes, Dr. David Jubb and Dr Fred Bisci,  and The Unique Healing Program. The Program I am presently involved in is The Kalcker Parasite Protocol. The Kalcker Protocol is presented by Kerri Rivera in her book CD: Austism. As a current participant in the Kalcker Parasite Protocol Program, I am finding that the Kalcker Program has helped enhance the ingredients used in the Klinghardt Mercury Detox Program. I feel less turned off by the use of Chlorella.  Also, the Liver / Gallbladder flushes have never been as effective for me since doing the Kalcker Parasite Protocol. For me it is about 5 months of doing the Kalcker Program as presented in Kerri Rivera’s book. I have done many Liver – GB Flushes beginning back in 1999.

WHY HAS THE PARASITE PROTOCOL ENHANCED THESE OTHER DETOX PROGRAMS?

My deduction is that parasites, bacteria, viruses hang out in the Gallbladder and Liver. How do they end up there? The Liver can be described as #The Buck Stops Here Organ. The Liver is a filter for toxins, and it is a protector for the rest of the body. Until those pathogens exit in a way that does not compromise overall health, the “unwanted guests” will remain congesting the Gallbladder and Liver. These stored Gallbladder / Liver toxins will make it hard for other Detox Programs to  be of any real help. These other cleansing modalities may be effective in the beginning, but then that often wanes or comes to a dead halt. Please read about the Kalcker Protocol [CD : Austism]  to understand what is involved.

KLINGHARDT MERCURY DETOX PROTOCOL. SOME PERSONAL INSIGHTS

Biopure and Health Force, from my experience and research, sell a very clean Chlorella. Biopure Cilantro also looks like it is top notch. I am using Herb Pharm Cilantro Tincture. I would greatly question the Chlorella that Mike Adams gushes over. From his website it looks like he is selling it and that could greatly corrupt his opinion. Judge for yourself.

Directions to apply the Cilantro tincture to the wrists, ankles and groin should NOT be discounted. I think it can have a positive detoxing effect. Applying the Cilantro on these areas is part of the Klinghardt recommendations.

A Zeolite Product is often recommended as an absorber of Heavy Metal toxicity. I am using Health Force Drawing Formula. Health Force has a Zeolite Powder, as well. BioPure does, too.

It is easy to discount the power of Chlorella and Cilantro. I have cut my dosage in half, still three times a day. Sometimes only two depending on the day. I did that because I felt the cleansing reation was picking up. A slight metallic taste in my mouth at times. The Chlorella and Cilantro have added to a slight decrease in appetite. This seems to be improving the longer I use Cilantro Tincture and Chlorella Tablets. As I mentioned before, I am presently using Herb Pharm Cilantro.  Health Force Chlorella Tablets is my present choice.

Environmedica [once LL’s Magnetic Clay] has a Mercury Detox Clay that I use and find helpful. How? I feel lighter, more energy, can think more clearly. Do some research on their site to understand what is involved in using their effective products.

Mercury and other Heavy Metals are substances that we are all constantly coming into contact with through our earth, water, and air. Taking action is imperative for better health, for healing. Is the Klinghardt Program the only way to go? No, but aspects of it are time honored with many testimonials. Do some research and find out for yourself.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but no one is going to spoon feed us what to do. It is easy to not fully understand this because if the unhealthy relationship that has been encouraged with “The Doctor”. There is no one to tell us what and when to do things exactly the right way to regain or improve our health. Again, isn’t that what the Western Medical Paradigm claims to do? That was part of the sales pitch for The Unique Healing Program. The UHP had many contradictions. Everything will be just fine if you just follow the instructions was one of them. Even if it takes 5 years of drinking copious amounts of clay.

There are many notyourrawmama posts that discuss The UHP. I have written from my point of view, and from what I have heard from other participants of The UHP.

UNIQUE HEALING DONNA PESSIN: IS DONNA PESSIN A “QUACK”?

WELL, WHOM AND WHAT DETERMINES THAT? OR, NO YOU DIDN’T!

Begin by watching Donna Pessin’s videos and reading her books. I did this over two years ago. The answer from doing those two things, for me, was a NO. A no for many others I have corresponded with doing The UHP. On occasion I have heard from some who say they have watched “all” her videos and read her books [ doubt they did]. From that they got a “crazy” vibe from her. I know any person can find, or project crazy onto anyone whose message they do not want to hear.  I am not completely discrediting what her critics are saying. Hold on, and keep reading. This post is not written by the President of the Donna Pessin Fan Club. I would be lying if I told you that nothing about Donna Pessin’s presence in her videos was a trigger for me. I was looking at content, and  her message made sense and had me questioning things I thought were true. Her composure and down to earth delivery was refreshing to me.

PLEASE CONSIDER THIS

Are Western Medical Doctors and other Western Medical Practitioners, people who dole out meds and therapies with a laundry list of caveats, ever asked this question about them? Treatments and Meds that have a history of lawsuits attached to them. Has anyone ever asked you if  your Traditional Medical Doctor is a Quack? That is assuming you have a Western Medical Doctor! Quack and popular Prescribed / used Conventional Medicine protocols? In the same sentence? I have rarely to never seen or heard  it. If one does a search on Chemotherapy [one example] as Quackery there is close to zilch from Western Medicine itself that surfaces. The suffering  that many withstand and tolerate from, during and after Chemotherapy and Radiation treatments is accepted as normal. This is the treatment that is prescribed by Doctors and the Pharmaceutical Companies they do business with. Big Pharma has a heavy hand within the Medical Community. As if you did not know.

Both Western Medical Doctors and Big Pharma help to keep patients in the dark about what is really wrong with them. However, many patients want it that way, or it would change. Why? One reason is that they can continue to live as they always  have. The ” Doctor” will take care of it all. Hello, everyone!  There is the internet today and information, both accurate and fear based is abundant. No one, especially those who have access to a computer, need be clueless around the risks of Allopathic / Traditional Western Medial Treatment. I am, for this post, targeting Chemotherapy and Radiation. Listen, if you think Chemo and Radiation saved your life, I am not going to argue with you. It probably did. However, who wants to repeat that? No one I know, so Western Medicine as a long term plan? You can do better.

REQUEST TO WESTERN MEDICINE

Dear Traditional Medical Doctor – Practitioner,

Please define cancer, in plain language,  and tell us what the word Cancer really means. Define it in understandable biological terms. Not the terms that you and your friends at the Pharmaceutical Companies have come up with.

Thank you.

PS There are people who deserve and want to know. Some may not want to. Don’t worry, you will always have some takers. More than enough to please your shareholders.

TAKING CHARGE IS NOT ALWAYS SO EASY

Yes, Cancer and other Western Medical patients need to do their own research. Many are often afraid to do anything other than what “The Doctor” says. It is easy when a person has a medical diagnosis, such as Cancer to give up control in that way. There is usually pressure from friends and family to go the Western Medical Protocol/Big Pharma route. If you have ever felt ill enough to consider going to an emergency room, you may be able to understand their line of thinking and decision making. People who are ill are often very vulnerable.

SHOULD I, OR SHOULDN’T I?

One way to help decide what to do is watching a video of the surgery or medical procedure that has been recommended for you, such as a  hip replacement operation. Last time I checked is available on youtube. Then allowing that information to help you decide whether to have the surgery or not. Why don’t more people watch a video of a surgery they are considering? Clue: With a hip replacement there is usually a saw involved. When you use a saw on the human body there is lots and lots of blood. Same for any animal carcass. In other words, it is not pretty.

The alternative to an operation, such as a hip replacement, requires some deep self reflection. Then the energy and focus to find another solution.  Then you need the energy and drive to put it into action. This is no easy road for an ill person, for any person. So, if someone is in oodles of pain they are looking for relief. Reducing inflammation for a person in dire pain, the natural way, is a no easy fix. Not by a long shot.

IS DONNA PESSIN A QUACK?

When private consults were possible with Ms. Pessin she was very dogmatic about her protocol. More clay, herbs and colloidal silver were her solutions. This did not work for me after three months. It has not worked for the tens of others I have corresponded with via this blog. It did not work for many I have “met” on the FB UHPSG Forum. If a patient can not talk to their practitioner and problem solve that does not make for a good long term relationship. Is that Quackery? It most definitley is a relationship gone bad. Many of Donna Pessin’s clients have felt left high and dry with a protocol that worked for awhile, sort of worked, was getting some results and stopped. Sound familiar?

Part two: Presently there is a lack of solutions to the problems that numbers of people are having within The Unique Healing Program. Donna Pessin has stopped one on one consults. Okay, so people feel bloated, nauseated and achy. Add to that there is no one to call for help. Hitting a wall, feeling frustrated, alone and just plain sick is not conducive to healing. Is that Quackery? Sounds like many Doctor/ Patient relationships. A relationship many feel they have no other alternative but to put up with it. This is not healing. This is a practitioner / client /  patient  situation gone bad. All this only adds more obstacles to healing.

Western Medical Practices often lack a supportive and nurturing staff. Office situations that do not have creative solutions to the problems of their patients. Is this the experience for everyone? No, but enough people feel this way. That is why people seek out alternative protocols like The Unique Healing Program. They want to find some answers. They need someone with experience to talk to about their progress, or lack there of.  Doctors are usually the ones that tell the public that this is THE way “we” do things. What goes unsaid is that if you decide not to go along with the protocol you can hit the road. By the way, that road is usually scary and lonely. You NEED us more than we need you is what they are inferring.”Us” are Western Medical Practitioners and their Prescription Pads.  Point being is that it is unnecessary to be a doctor, or play one on TV to behave like a Western Medical Doctor or Practitioner. And what does that behavior look like? Meet Donna Pessin. BTW, she would angrily scoff at that notion or completely not acknowledge it, giving my premise even more credibility.

ONE STOP SHOPPING? FOR AWHILE, MAYBE…

So, I have written many posts saying that I found something called The Unique Healing Program, and  that it helped me. I did say that, and also stated, from the beginning,  that there were always caveats attached to doing UHP. I made it clear that I needed Colon Therapy during my time on UHP to deal with lessening my symptoms. I mentioned that I had to, on my own, tweak The UHP to make it work for me. I pointed out that Ms. Pessin’s advocating the use of Sodium Bentonite Clay to absorb toxins was her strong point. Sadly, the major weak point is that Donna Pessin boldly promotes her program as One Stop shopping. Does she really believe that? I do not know. However, when speaking to Donna Pessin, any inference that UHP does not work creates a whole lot of defensiveness on her part. That or a complete shut down of communication.  Now that is mature! Her video that states Die Off does not exist on The Unique Healing Program, is a prime example. You can feel better on her program while cleansing by using her “Crutches”. Okay, the big problemo is that this is not true for anyone I know doing The Unique Healing Program some of the time, most of the time, or after awhile.

HOW COME?

Why? One major reason is that her program is lacking a strong enough anti viral and anti bacterial agent. Her recommendations of more clay, CS and Bowel Strength are not a long term solution. Long term? Well, she makes it clear her program can go on for 1 – 5 years. That is a whole lot of clay to drink. Remember some are drinking up to 24 tablespoons a day. For how many years? How long can one take Berberine and Colloidal Silver and it still be effective. When do you transfer to lesser amounts, Probiotics, etcetera. Well, if it is not in her books, and she swears it is, you are screwed. Is that Quackery? You tell me. It is disappointing and just plain unprofessional.

SOME HELP TO INVESTIGATE.

If you are looking for another step in the healing of Constipation, Bloating, Diarrhea and any other indicators of the underpinnings of poor health, then  I suggest you read a book by Kerri Rivera that has some challenging and very helpful information about healing the bowel, body and brain. Also, David Wolfe’s Longevity Now Program. Dr. Fred Bisci, PHD has a website, book and 80 some odd years of educating people to heal themselves. There is Donna Gates, creator of the Body Ecology Diet. Of course, there are others, but those I just mentioned are ones I am most familiar with. These authors and practitioners place creating Bowel Health at the top of their list for creating better health. Each of their methods are in several ways different. What they have in common is that they can help you, in some way, with or without The Unique Healing Program. On the other hand, they may help you appreciate what Donna Pessin has to say in her books and videos. Her use of Sodium Bentonite Clay and Berberine Herbs. Do your research, comparing, and intuition. If you do try The Unique Healing Program, keep in mind what I have written here, in more recent post, and those beginning in late 2012.

Thanks for taking the time to read.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: YOU ARE NOT DEPRESSED

YOU FEEL DEPRESSED

For any person reading here, how I entitled this post and what I am about to write may be a revelation. It could also be an eye rolling – no s@#t sherlock moment. I write from hearing the words that have come out of my mouth, and the mouths of others. The phrase “I am depressed” needs to be distinguished from ” I feel depressed”. It is easy to identify with how we feel. Super easy. However, these are two very different statements  and one, in my opinion, is a misuse of words. It is also an unmistakeable misunderstanding of depression. Being depressed is a static concept, and feeling depressed is something that can change. If healthy, we feel things and they pass through us eventually. Of course, letting go and healing depends on the intensity of a situation. It is  easy to change if we identify ourselves as a fluid individual. For the most part, when healthy, our  lives flow like the element of water that predominates our biological make up. Water is fluid and we are mostly water. Many people do not seem to understand that our biological composition is mostly water. Feelings of things not flowing, sometimes called frustration, are part of a bladder/ kidney/ liver imbalance. This kidney/bladder/water imbalance deeply impacts and creates feelings of physical unease or disease. What does that feel and look like? Well, I most obviously can not answer that for everyone. Most widely shared complaints are bloating, dehydration, aches, tiredness, feeling frustrated and stuck. These are some of the corner stone symptoms that many people experience, and that add to feeling unwell. Often this contributes to feeling depressed, powerless and angry.  What is going on can be summarized by the amount and types of meds that are being peddled all day long through the media and medical professionals by pharmaceutical companies.

WHAT IS THE FOCUS AND MISSION OF THIS POST?

I am hoping to help some people open their minds to the idea that no one needs to be embarrassed about feeling depressed. When it has gone on for what seems similar to forever it is easy to identify with the phrase,” I am depressed”. You may have to do some soul searching to remember the last time you felt elated, or at peace with things. If you can not remember, you have a strong reason for healing your bowel and body. The Unique Healing Program is ONE way to do this. Is it the answer for everyone? No, I am sure it is not.  I have been part of The Unique Healing Program for two years. I know first hand nothing is for everyone. That would be a ridiculous and  presumptuous thing for anyone say. However, The UHP is worth researching and learning from. There is information in The Unique Healing Books on depression. Presently there is more information on the web as to the brain – gut connection than there ever has been before. This information is not linked to The UHP in anyway.

BODY, BOWEL, BRAIN

In closing, one idea that helped me understand the gut / brain connection was recognizing that the same blood that flows through the bowel and all other organs and extremities flows through and impacts our brain. Improving the health of all our internal organs, with focus on better bowel health, impacts our limbs. When everything is flowing we feel a part of nature and humanity. We stop feeling the world and those who inhabit it are our enemy. Ultimately, peace begins within us and in a very, very  basic way. Complicatedly basic.

THE BODY ECOLOGY DIET

Another source for gut health is The Body Ecology Diet by Donna Gates. I highly recommend this book as a source for information on how and what to eat. The emphasis on fermented foods is greatly helpful, but in my experience, not the answer for healing a bowel that is not functioning well, or at all. The Body Ecology Diet can give a better picture of what true gut health is. Using clay is what The Unique Healing Program centers around, and that is the ingredient that The BED is missing. Besides an informative book, Donna Gates does sell herbs, green powders and other adjuncts to her program. Well worth checking out. I have written other posts as to why The BED did not work for me. Please do a search on this site for more info.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: LOOKING FOR A MIRACLE CURE?

THIS AIN’T IT, CAUSE THERE IS NONE. HOWEVER…

I started this blog before I found The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin. Prior to that the posts I wrote were about aspects of healing programs that inspired and disappointed me, my observation of the hypocracy of other healing programs and their creators. The rest was comprised of other topics that piqued my interests concerning physical, spiritual and emotional healing. After I found The UHP all that changed, as did my life in some very positive ways. I had found the tools that I had been looking for for healing my body. I need to often remind myself of what I found more often.  It is easy to loose track due to the arduous and focused road I have been on the past 21 months called The Unique Healing Program. Focus is the key word here. There is a focus to The Unique Healing Program and the program can be likened to peeling an onion. It can be as unpleasant as peeling an onion, only it takes a whole lot more time and commitment. Not the greatest analogy, but maybe the rest of what I have to say here will make up for it.

I am NOT the president of the Donna Pessin Fan Club – there is none and I am not starting one. I began writing about The Unique Healing Program in this blog because the basic tenants of The UHP made sense to me. Most astoundingly, within a short period of time The UHP got my bowels formed and moving. That was something none of the other programs, diets, body- mind healing that I had done [for decades] ever did. This was a HUGE accomplishment for me. I also understood through the information from Donna Gates [Body Ecology Diet] and Truth Calkins [thanks to both of them] what a healthy bowel is supposed to be. Three years of following The BED, and 25 years plus of other diligent efforts to heal, I did not get those regular bowel results. Never! Please look at past posts to get an idea of my background in colon therapy – as a colon therapist, etcetera. Not necessary, but you will understand better after reading a few of them where I come from.

The point and heart of this post is in line with the beginning. As far as I know there is no miracle cure and The Unique Healing Program is not sold as one. The books and videos are somewhat confusing and I will address that in a future post, but Donna Pessin does state that her program can take 1 – to 5 years to complete. I think each year can tell a person how much we all do not know about the environment we live in, and our own inner terrain. It is mega complex, all that we are exposed to in this Industrialized World that human beings have created.

I remind myself each day that it is not this program that is the “problem”, but what is inside of me that is responding to the Sodium Bentonite Clay, Bowel Strength Herbs – Berberine based herbs, and whatever else I am taking, eating and leaving out! Yes, how and when we all take things, the amounts, the timeline of eating and sleeping or not sleeping. All of it has an impact. Please consider what I am saying. It is what is in us that is the real issue.

Finally, I tell myself that when there is a fire or a flood  a renovation takes place.  That means a tear down that occurs first and then rebuilding can happen. What does that mean in terms of this subject? In my case I have had to clean house internally in order to rebuild. It is not been comfortable. Paining over fire damage and water damage is not going to solve anything in your “home redo”. Taking more supplements and juicing without drawing out the contaminants that got us all to feel lousy is not a solution for most anyone. If you have sought out The Unique Healing Program you probably have more than a runny nose after eating wheat or sugar, and some sore muscles after taking a Zumba class. I am not trying to be sarcastic here, but just drive home my point. Okay, maybe a little sarcastic…

The Unique Healing Program may not be for you, but some aspects of it can be important to most anyone looking for answers concerning their health. Do some reading and research on The UHP site and check out past blog posts here to further understand my experience and a smattering of what others have told me who are also on this UHP journey.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: PERSONAL UPDATE

SOME DAYS SEEM WAY HARDER THAN OTHERS

Around mid January of this year I started feeling an ambivalence toward eating that,from past experience on UHP, told me mild nausea may be in my future. I knew Spring might be tough for me and things were starting to come to the surface for spring. Spring Cleaning Post here.

So, I have a pretty unpredictable time since mid- January. I am not presently using UHP Colloidal Silver. I did in the beginning and have written about that in other posts.UHP CS is more potent in smaller doses than the home brewed CS.  I had some idea that if I was not using UHP CS, the stuff we made was a waste of time and I began to use MMS. I have some past posts on MMS and CS.  We do make our own Colloidal Silver and I am sorry I did not start drinking it sooner. But who knows? I feel like a 24 / 7 personal health detective most days. This has been going on for many, many years. Anyway, MMS is effective, but sometimes hard to tolerate.

To get to the point, I am finding some repeat of  symptoms from last spring[other springs] at this time, with many improvements. What is hard is that I so want to feel better. I want to have some kind of  daily pattern of feeling well that I can count on. What I have to remind myself is that before Donna Pessin and The Unique Healing Program I was searching for this pattern, for most of my life, and my gut was worse than it is now. Hard to believe and remember.

I am not good with feeling blocked up. I am learning as I go through this process that many people are just better at dealing with feeling bloated, stuck and trudging on.I am talking mostly about people not on UHP. Prior to UHP I had to eat a very simple diet and rely on other tricks to feel able to be in the world. I knew I just could not cope any longer with the way things were. This was an epiphany I came to  way more than a decade ago, but never found anything that healed my gut. I do write about The Body Ecology Diet in many other posts. BED was one of my hopes to work before finding The UHP. I did BED for three years and it did not heal my gut. Still some good info on The BED site.

It is easy to feel fed up doing The Unique Healing Program. I feel that way and have to give myself a reality check. I felt fed up before The UHP. Why else would I be doing it?  I moved from NYC and stopped at the town of Patagonia, Az.- Tree of Life Center thinking that would be a real helpful jumpstart for my health. I hoped to find a health balance that I could not reach living in NYC my entire life. My path is very, very long and circuitous [decades]. It lead me to The Unique Healing Program and Donna Pessin. I just have to learn to be more patient and that is truly not my strong point.

I have thought I feel really worse at times, but I have to ask myself since when? I did not feel well before UHP. Complaining is not hard to do and I think as the bacteria, fungi, parasites, Candida get pushed out of their homes there is a whole lot of kicking and screaming going on. So, more complaining on my end due to the nasty symptoms. Just a supposition. Sure it is true.

Sick of hearing myself bitch, but understanding why I do. Looking to feel  more grateful. Not easy when I am in the middle of some icky symptoms. If you are reading this post you probably know what I am talking about, whether you are on The UHP or just scoping it out.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: REBUILDING CONFIDENCE

EVERYTHING BUT THE KITCHEN SINK

I knew a New York City based psychotherapist who told me of a story about a couple who showed up at a related conference loaded with personal health apparatus to get them through their stay. The therapist ridiculed what they termed as the couple’s neurotic behavior. The couple, from what was described to me, were definitely highly allergic to environmental toxins. To the conference this couple brought a juicer, Vita Mix, supplements, air cleaner, a cooler with a supply of fruits and vegetables and who knows what else. The story said more about the story teller and me than it did about the couple. The therapist had no empathy, and I had too much.

I could relate to the couple and also felt an identification with the highly critical point of view of the therapist. I did not want to be the person hauling all my stuff with me in order to feel well. These people, maybe neurotic, were definitely not well. They could not be without their items for that one week. Sadly, they probably had enough discomfort to make it feel necessary to bring all their stuff with them. Of course, there are the people who bring enough clothes, shoes, make-up and meds with them for an army, but that  is the accepted norm. That is part of what keeps our economy pumping.

Confidence comes from within. I truly feel that without a healthy gut, and that means immune system, there is no natural way to experience true confidence for many, many people. To travel and have fun is something that we all associate with feeling young, but in actuality it is health and vitality that is the long term determining factor. Yes, of course, there are those that seem impervious to everything at any time and age. Those people are becoming fewer and fewer and are mostly bolstered by medications and will power. Those who take meds inadvertently effect all of us in one way or another. Check out this assessment of  USA tap water. Living in fear is a waste of time and energy, so strengthening our immunes system via our gut is deepest solution.

Start someplace. The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin is a great place to learn. Also, The Body Ecology Diet Donna Gates is another resource. I have done both along with lots of other things over the past three decades. The Unique Healing Program is what has worked for me by ending my on and off, mostly on, constipation and indigestion. It is not an easy program. It just isn’t. I wish it was. Take a look, and  if it makes sense to you and you are sick of feeling vulnerable and lousy, give it a try.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: SHARING THIS PROGRAM WITH OTHERS

This post is something I began in October of 2013, about 8 months into the program. It has now been one year since I began The UHP 3/2014.

The Unique Healing Program is not for everyone. That is for damn sure. There are moments, not days, when I wonder if it is for me. Because of my own extensive experience with other systems of healing, I understand the value of The Unique Healing Program. However, it was and is not an immediate slam dunk, feel better now, skip down the lane with a rainbow at the end. I wish it was! PS 3/2014: I am seeing some light at this point. No rainbow,but I have great hope.

Here were my main stumbling blocks when I first heard about this program:

How much clay? How do you get that out? I never had any luck with colon cleansing programs. I would feel so blocked and more bloated doing them. I had to do colonics with them in order to see any positive effects. Anyway, as someone who had a great deal of experience with colon therapy, I could not understand how taking clay would work with people who are already constipated. Wouldn’t that be dehydrating? And the amounts! Three to six tablespoons! Ha! Now that doesn’t seem like an big deal.

Cheese? Cheese is “known” to be constipating and undigestible. Eating cheese made no sense to me. Now I find cheese to be exactly what Donna Pessin says, easy to digest and a good source of protein. I eat organic cheese and often times it is from raw milk sources. It is not in large quantities, but you eat what you need to while doing this program.

Black tea? Come on! That really did not make sense to me. I already had trouble with caffeine. Loved the smell of coffee, but agitated me and did not drink it. I have come to realize that the acid condition that I was trying to heal with a more alkaline diet was not entirely working for me. The reason being that it was very cleansing and my gut was not healthy enough to transmute those toxins and escort them out of my system. I was taking one to three table spoons of Zeolite Clay a day and eating fermented foods, as recommended by Donna Gates / Body Ecology Diet. That was the tip of the iceberg of things I was using to, I believed, heal my body and restore peristalsis.

Your Diet Will Not Heal You. Yeah, well that was painfully hard to hear, but I was coming to recognize that it was true years before I found Donna Pessin and The Unique Healing Program. I thought “that diet” or “that other diet” would not heal, but there was one out there that would. What we eat heals us, right? What we do not eat heals us, right? For most people a change in diet will give an initial boost, but long term healing of the digestive system and GI tract needs much, much more.

Oh yeah, and not eating will really heal? Long term juice fasting and Juice Feasting did not heal my digestion either. I really thought those would be the tickets out of constipation hell.

The Unique Healing Program initially looked like a weight loss program, or  I thought it was being sold that way. I soon realized that the bloat and blocked up feeling many people have makes them feel fat. Of course, healing inferior digestion is the cornerstone to looking and feeling good. In the end it all made sense why there were many references to loosing weight in The Unique Healing Books and videos. The Biggest Looser is a very popular television show here in the states. Okay, the USA is full of fatties and  being very overweight is frighteningly looking like the new norm.

THE ENDLESS WHAT, WHEN AND WHY

It is a wild goose chase trying to figure out what substances cause what, when it is “probably” something deep inside that was not recently ingested. The videos Donna Pessin has on her website, her books really help clarify these points. In all honesty, it is an unlearning process for most of us. I am still grappling with this new-ish way of thinking. Needing to watch the videos over and over again does not mean you are  thick headed. You are not alone.

Looking back on this unfinished post I have become, at times, more confused about all my understanding about health and sickness. If you decide to do The Unique Healing Program, I would suggest doing it for a complete year before telling the world. It does work, but it is not for everyone and being on The UHP for one year has helped give me a deeper understanding of what exactly is entailed. Although I am still amazed and confused by some of the process and temporary set backs.

My experience and observation is that most everyone I have known that is a long term practitioner in other fields of healing, that do not include prescribed medications and medical intervention, eventually end up seeking out traditional medical care for ailments they said they could cure without that help. They are obviously doing something that is not working. What is that? For many that I personally know and have treated, they never healed their gut. I am sure of this.

I really applaud David Wolfe questioning this missing element of healing in his  first Longevity Now Course. He definitely covers many aspects of what Donna Pessin says in The Unique Healing Program. He also clearly questions why people who are living a healthier lifestyle [not just raw food people] are not living any longer than the general population. Gut health!  One thing he clearly gets into is absorbing toxins and escorting them out of the body in a timely fashion. The Longevity Now Program is very complex and much less specific than The Unique Healing Program. So much more expensive [no, I am not kidding] and the use of products [ he does not sell them through his program] has no end point.

The more you know the more empowered you may feel in doing The Unique Healing Program, sharing it with others or finding something else.
