I finally found a detox method I can do that helps in more than one way...  idea   colonics, done with electrolyte water (sodium, magnesium, potassium).  I feel so much better since starting these a few weeks ago!
 
Has anyone else gotten detox benefit from colonics?
 
Just curious,

Morning Razzle,
 
That's great that colonics is working for you, yeah!  I never had this done because I read that I have to go to someone that specializes in colonics so I do the good ole fashioned coffee enema's at home which always makes me feel better.   I follow Dr. J's recipe. 
 
Are you seeing someone that does this?  I watched youtube video's of people having colonics and it is fascinating in more ways than one, ha, ha!!

Yes, there is a trained/certified practioner I see for this. She uses the closed system (a machine puts the water in and drains it out also). I had a couple of colonics before this year, but somehow they didn't do much for me. This year, on the other hand, maybe because of the electrolyte water being used, I am experiencing increased energy and also my gut seems to be able to tolerate more volume of fluid and solid food without too much difficulty (this is a huge and wonderful change for me). I might be able to actually get off of the IV fluids and food now that I can put in more volume orally.

Take care,

Interesting. Been wondering about this for myself. Kinda scared to do it but does seem to have some positive benefits. Thanks for sharing this, Razzle. Keep us posted on your progress. Oh, how often are doing this?

I'm using the oxygen based Oxy Powder. It's very natural and easy on the tummy, plus it works very well!

Gary,

I was getting them weekly, but due to no insurance coverage will be weaning down to monthly. I've been feeling so much better since adding dairy back to my diet after getting my plumbing working better, LOL. I know, I know - dairy is supposedly a no-no, but I can't eat any other source of protein so I have to do something to be able to get off the TPN, and allergy testing (IgG, IgM, IgA, skin scratch tests, etc.) shows that I am not allergic to milk. I actually don't drink milk by itself (yuk!), I usually boil it, or eat it cultured (yogurt/certain kinds of cheese).

Donotfear,

Thanks for the suggestion...however, Oxy Powder contains ingredients to which I am highly allergic.

Take care,

Razzle-
Maybe you would like to investigate Kefir to help with your nutrition?? It has helped me.
Here is a link to where I first learned about "real" kefir.

Just a thought.
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.

Traveler,

Thanks, I do appreciate the suggestion. I think it was strawberry flavored kefir that I used to like to drink when I was a little kid, but now when I open a container of something like that, I get overwhelmed with nausea by the smell and then I can't get my stomach to let me eat it.

I can't handle high-dose probiotics anymore either...they all seem to bring my colon to a screeching halt. So I take a kids' chewable probiotic and it seems to help some without stopping up my gut too badly. I think part of my problem with these probiotics is that the lactobacilli generate sulfites, to which I'm very sensitive/allergic. I think I will be able to tolerate more probiotics as the Lyme gets killed off more but for now, I have to tippy-toe around with low-dose probiotics.

Thanks & take care,
