  • 6 Days Grain Free - some questions

    I haven't posted for a while, after I had a hair mineral anlaysis done in May of this year, I was focussing on rest to try and restore my adrenal glands, yet rest alone not doing that much.
    so, have increased exercise to adress weakness in other glands. I have a feeling the pancreas is where the main weakness lies and I read in Mark's book, this can then effect thyroid, and adrenals.
    I am now Day 6 of being completely grain free, am wanting to do it for 30 days and then see how I feel, but I realise it will take longer to get balance and strength in inernal organs.
    I still am doing coffee enema every morning as can't have normal bowel motions, sometimes I just use a glycerine suppositary, just no energy - and this could be adrenals. as need hormones for muscle tone in large intestine.
    My hair analysis showed mineral imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, too much copper (probably in the liver), too much mercury/aluminium.
    just wondering if others have this issue, and if so, how long did it take to get everything improved, ie glands working better. Do you think a menstrual cycle can come back again, if I keep up the animal proteins and vegetables, fats.
    I tried before but always caved in and wanted rice. I feel grains just ferment inside, and made me feel sleepy or depressed. My hair analysis showed I am a 'slow oxidizer' - I think this is slow metabolism in my cells.
    Am exercising three times a day, but feel I need maybe one rest day, not sure yet.
    I still need to build muscle as this disappeared slowly over the last few years. I am now 51 years old

    Rice isn't harmful so I see no reason to deprive yourself of it.

      But there are better foods to eat for someone who needs building up in so many areas of lack.

      Aussie lady, best wishes on your journey to health. Have you incorporated bone broth, it's very nutritious.

        Unless most of your exercise is walking it is to much. Lift heavy things 2 or 3 times a week, not day, and sprint once a week. Have the day's in between of and just walk a bit, not miles and miles. Exercise, except the walking, should last approx half am hour and be intensive.

          Up your magnesium, stop doing coffee enemas... your poop chute is a chute not a bi-directional transit tube.

            Also, you can take some chewable Vitamin C. When this (rarely) happens to me, I chew 1000 mg an hour until something happens. I would not recommend that you chew more than 10,000 mg per day. If you need that much, you should only do that occasionally at most. We take 800 mg magnesium and 1000 mg Vit. C dailly.

            Alpha lipoic acid will help you detox metals. Do not take acetaminophen as it inhibits glutathione which is one of the body's natural detox mechanisms. Fish/seafood, high fructose corn syrup and traditional flu shots are some sources of mercury. The bigger and older the fish, the more mercury. Sardines and wild sockeye salmon are the only seafood I see recommended anymore. If you take fish oil supplements, try Nordic Naturals brand. Drink lots of good water. Do you drink coffee in the a.m.?

            Are you possibly in menopause? I have read that 12 months without a period indicates menopause.

                question: you don't have the energy to use the bathroom, but you have the energy to exercise 3 times a day?! Definitely take magnesium, maybe do some yoga stretching/bending/twisting, I find that helps after awhile.

                  A person can be energetic and constipated at the same time.

                      PS: Consuming coconut oil may also be helpful.

                      For those in the US, this is a delicious coconut product: Hail Merry Raw Vegan Gluten-Free Snacks

                        I would be careful chewing vitamin C - it is very acidic and can eat the enamel on your teeth and cause dental issues. Ask me how I know. If this is just an occasional thing, likely no issue but I wouldn't make a habit of it.
                        I am not suggesting you not take Vit C but maybe better off not to chew it.

                          I meant chewable Vit. C. I edited my original post. Thanks!

                            Hello everyone - I thank you for your comments/suggestions. I agree, you can find energy to get things done, and be constipated at the same time. I actually believe it is more to do with sluggish liver function / toxicity, too much heat in liver over a long period of time, means less energy for other glands like adrenals, kidneys, pancreas, etc. Metaphysical and emotional component I'm now sure.
                            I don't drink coffee in morning - no coffee at all for me, I go for green tea or my 'wise water'/herbal tea kept warm in thermas flask as per Nancy Lonsdorf's tips in her book, 'The Ageless Woman'. Coffee enema helping a lot, also supports liver function. I will decrease them when the time is right.
                            Yes, I did get some vitamin C, and magnesium, however my hair analysis shows good levels of calcium and magnesium in my cells, it is other minerals ie iron, trace minerals, k and na not getting into cells properly, stress causes major problems in body. I also take ashwaganda, Indian bala root, shatavari root powder, Anantamool (Indian sarsaparalla), some marshmallow root in my wise water. I sometimes forget as don't like large amounts of supplements.
                            I agree about the exercise, I was doing too much, I actually do better with gentle slow walking, and yes I've been doing yoga for quite some time now, plus after a visit to a ayurvedic practitioner this year, I now do yoga mudra and pranayama exercises which works with the chi/prana, moving it up and down the glands/chakras.
                            thanks for talking about mercury, I've only eaten mostly sardines or low fat white fish recently, salmon on occasion, but tuna only once in the last 8 yrs or so. Mercury also from dental fillings, may get one or two removed next year. When eliminative organs get weak, then toxins do accumulate in cells, which is why I'm trying so hard to change/improve things, so I don't end up dementia or worse! Have done fasting in past, may do another one or two soon!
                            I've experimented a lot with my meals/diet: what works best for me now is stewed apple or pear with prunes/fig with spices followed by a grain cooked in water with spices, maybe a date or two; some almonds and pine nuts (high in vit E too)
                            lunch: basmati rice, steamed or stir fried veg, with fish or poultry or bean of some type;
                            pm snack: fresh sweet juicy fruit: eg papaya, berries, green melon, dark purple/red grapes with some small low fat seeds - green pumpkin seeds I like best. nuts sometimes if liver working ok.
                            dinner: is light - a daal soup with veg in it, spices/seeds sauteed in ghee; I use high protein daal like split mung beans, split urad daal, red lentils or toor daal. It works well, due to phyto-estrogens, fibre, spices and a moist meal which keeps liver and insides moist. Wake up feeling good when I have daal soup - asparagus, green beans, spinach best at night - low starch.
                            I try and make a fresh raw juice most days around 11am if I am home - just before pitta time - 10am to 2pm: carrot, beet, fresh tumeric, apple, celery. works best at this time.
                            I'll keep in touch. Anyone who has young daughters, please teach them how to deal or express with the emotions of anger/frustration/resentment (which constricts/chokes up the liver in some people) so that they don't end up with cysts on their liver and laying on the bathroom floor for over 2 yrs giving themselves coffee enemas just to get bodily wastes out. I wouldn't wish this on anyone. I will improve one day and get my liver strong and healthy, other organs will improve too.

                              Yes, I have had some coconut oil, I like it, however my liver doesn't for the time being as all satur fats slow down liver function, even a little dark choc last week had terrible effects. Plus it is tropical and am sensitive to trop foods.
