Week One Review

Leave a comment

It’s been nine days since I asked the surgeon to put down the knife and made the commitment to attempt to keep my gallbladder in tact. I see this week as a bona fide success and would describe the shift in my general well-being as “seismic”. Sadly, I did have one attack, but it was an order-of-magnitude more manageable than past attacks and I was able to recover swiftly. I also believe I correctly identified the cause for the attack (my HCL supplementation).

Main Activities:

  • Tons of Research
  • Meeting With Nutritionist

Main Strategies:

It worked. I feel like a completely different person physically, mentally, and spiritually. I can feel a seismic and healthy transformation in my digestion. My appetite is good and increasing in a desirable way. I’m pleased that this week was a good first step towards restoring some balance to my health: not just to the gallbladder but to my overall well being. My commitment to beating this growing rather than waning, so that’s a good thing. We all need a little encouragement.
Coming up this week will be the introduction of small doses of Hydrochloric Acid. I can “feel” that I need it when I take it, but I have to move slowly with it and keep the dosage low. I will also start introducing some exercise into the picture (extremely important), and some substances to help dissolve the stones. More to come. All this weeks strategies are keepers and will remain fundamental to my continuing program.

Castor Oil Packs: 3 days Wax On, 3 Days Wax Off

1 Comment

An important note about Cayce’s Castor Oil Packs. In his reading about this, Cayce was clear that the packs should not be used everyday. You should use them for 3 consecutive days then stop for 3 days, then start again. Wax on, Wax off. Don’t ask me why. But I will take the advice and assume it is an important part of the process. So my first 3 days are up and it is time for 3 days off.

I’m going to miss it. Once you commit to the time suck (an hour at night), you’ll find it to be extremely relaxing in addition to feeling great.

Cayce also suggests drinking 2 teaspoons of olive oil, straight, after the 3rd pack. The alleged purpose of this is to help move anything that might have been “released” through the digestive track. I personally am skipping this part right now. I’m hesitant to swallow a load of fat before bed. Hesitant is the wrong word… I’m terrified because of what I know might strike me at 3 AM from one dumb move.
