I'll follow tinacristina's lead and check in.
The last three days have gone pretty well. I'm eating the same things as before, but meals are smaller. I take a probiotic, fermented cod liver oil-butter blend and vitamin D at breakfast, NOW superenzyme at lunch, and drink dilute apple cider vinegar before dinner. I'm inconsistent with glutamine and magnesium glycinate but I take those at bedtime. At the recommendation of my naturopath, I'm taking Microbial Maintenance and oil of oregano.
It will be easy to add ginger, and in a few weeks, I'll be back to spicy foods (currently on elimination diet, and working to add foods back in). I'll also look into R-lipoic acid.
So, i'm not following the protocol, but I can see the parallels.
