    If you did reiki in the past, you should certainly be able to pick it up again, just start giving yourself reiki as often as possible. With reiki 1 you can treat yourself and get a much higher level of relaxation which in itself will be healing already. If you can treat the spot that will be operated on, you can do that as well of course, especially after the surgery. Let us know how you go!
    The bone broth is a very good suggestion, too.

    must admit it makes me feel good that I'm not the only one. KD was angry with me when I asked her when the weightloss would start - after I had gained so much weight so quickly, I kept falling and didnlt fit on my bicycle anymore. When she got angry, that was the limit for me. I had been religioulsy doing what she said.
    It is true, she comes very close, but oh wow, she is so very wrong in other respects

If your surgery doc doesn't care about your D3 level...then I would get a new doc or I would supplement 50,000IU a day right up through and post op if you don't know your serum level or it is low or you have not been supplementing previously. And then after you are healed, then drop back to 5000IU a day. This advice is worth exactly what you paid for it and is not intended to be professional advice as I am a retired farmer. However, if you want to take advice from a farmer, you got it.
    Thanks, Dextery!
    I'll up my D3 to 4000-5000 iu a day, but not 50,000. I was on 50,000 a week therapeutically when my serum levels were low.

    If this didn't answer it, I'm not sure what you're asking.
    My HDL is close to 80 (big improvement from 3 years ago when I first went primal and was last tested), but I'm still fat, lol. I think the HDL must be recovering faster than the LR?

    LOL, I think we just had this discussion; wher ewas it ... I think the "low serotonin diet" thread? Made a lot of people mad who wouldn't follow Her Guruness into the grave.

Gained a lot of weight when prescribed antidepressants. Atkins didn't work, so I went all meat and gained weight on rib eyes and T-bone. Then Kimkins, lean low carb. Didn't lose weight till Kimmer told me I should ditch the beef and hey presto, I finally lost a lot of weight. Felt great, took the two multivitamins she advised. Then another problem period and I decided to go "healthy and tried Radiant Recovery. The protocol is a lot like this leptin reset, only you HAD to eat carbs with every meal and I gained 50 lbs in 2 months time. So back to zero carb. Lost a little but not nearly enough and have been struggling with this for about two years now.
    What I heard about the leptin reset at DC and read about it everywhere, that might just do the trick for me , so I started on Friday. The first day I felt miserable and sick, and looked it, and the 2nd day I felt terrific ;-) Looked younger every time I looked in the mirror. Today has been fine, not that horrible hunger, and I feel pretty fit, only tonight after my dinner I feel sleepy. Probably had too much fat. Will stick to DC, which is zero carb with now and then some veggies thrown in, plus the cream in my one cup of coffee in the morning.
    Thanks for this fantastic thread and the awesome amount of information and support.
    What is the "DC" you will stick to?

    High HDL indicates gut and liver healed?

    I'm wondering as well. I believe the specific question/answer was in reference to eating nightshades. My HDL is 117 (last check in March). I don't have lab confirmation of being LR, but I've been following the reset for almost 8 weeks now and don't seem to be hitting many of the markers. I strongly suspect that I have some hormonal problems however. So far it looks like my T3 is low. I will be having sex hormones tested next week. I want to do the salivary cortisol as well.

    LMAO. You are very observant, yes I'm a planner. I enjoy this aspect of things though, listening to my body, trying to figure out why it's reacting to things and adjusting as a result. It's the geek in me. I tend to be enthusiastic about all things in my life, too much type A.

    Looking forward to reading more of the mediation links shared. I do what works for me, but haven't tried a lot of other methodologies.
