Low Carb, Atkins, Whatever, I'm heading for that 21st century.

A few years back I was extremely tired all the time. After a number of blood tests and an ultrasound on my kidneys the doctors had no real answer for me. Until a passing conversation with a friend , who happened to mention it to their homoeopath stated I had Candida. Now part of the treatment is well basically going on a diet pretty much identical to the Atkins/ low to no carb diet.

My wife even tried this diet while I was away for two weeks and I came back to a Limitless version of my wife.
So I feel it's that time again in my life. As I've been through this once before I'll prep well. So I'll need the following.

  • good quality multi vitamin (researching)
  • good quality pro-biotic (threelac)
  • whole phyllium husk (great addition of fibre)
  • low carb cook book
  • high quality pack lunch / tupper ware boxes (to carry my snacks and meals)
  • soda water (to substitute drink fizzy drinks)

Tea and awesome cups

When leaving a harmful habit. Replace it with a beneficial one.

No more sheesha or paan (chewing tobacco) for me. That doesn't mean I never touch the stuff. I've left it as a regular on going part of my life. But have not forbidden myself from it. So not on my home. But if once in a blue moon its fine.

I came to understand somthing about my self. I enjoy the ritual of packing the sheesha, preparing the coal etc. Same with the paan. So I had to replace it with a different ritual.

Now I make tea. Green tea, white tea etc. The ritual is simple boil water, add to awesome cup. Leave for 10 sec, add diffuser with loose leaves. Wait 3min and remove diffuser.

I use the same set of leaves another two times.

Replacing a very bad habit with a bad habit

It's been over a decade since I walked into the tobacco shop opposite Ilford Exchange Shopping Centre and purchased my first sheesha (aka hookah). Along with Nakhlah banana flavour. I've been smoking the molasses soaked tobacco every night ever since. Well when I've been at home or had access to it.

Previous attempts to quit didn't work. I would relapse after a few days. Even after removing the sheesha and all related items I would again purchase the lot again.

This time I planned well. I was away in India for 2 months. Before I left I got rid of the sheesha and all related items. I now also understand it is the ritual of preparing the sheesha which I also enjoy.

Solution to replace the habit of preparing and smoking sheesha after my evening meal. With preparing a paan.

Now it's still a bad habit. But after the paan I shall switch to preparing and enjoying a fruit tea or green tea if not to late.

The key for me is to replace the ritual of preparation.

I'll keep you posted on how this works.

Note: I will no longer have sheesha in my home. I will not part money or services in exchange for it. But if at a friends home he offers, then I'll partake a little.

Munchies at work

Around 15:00 at work I get the munchies. Now I always bring a healthy home cooked packed lunch. And try and have this around 12:30 but I just need somthing around 15:00 ish. So today along with my usual fruit snack I packed a little container full of almonds, pistachios, walnuts, cashews and dried figs.

That container is now locked in my draw.

Week 2 on MMS

Ok 1 week in at a 1 drop per hour dose (but only having 7 consecutive per day). So far so good. Not felt any nausea and the head fog of the first two or three days has decreased drastically. I take a good dose of Psyllium husk after breakfast to help keep me regulaer and in the hopes of clearing my bowls of any die off from any fungual, virul or parasites.

The Psyllium husk addition helped greatly as in the first few days of being on MMS I wasn't as regular in the bowl movement department as I normally am.

I'm in two minds to use a quality probiotic at night or to leave this until I start to come off the MMS. For now I'll just use the MMS and Psyllium husk. I'll be upping the doasge to about 1.5 to 2 drops per hour for this week.

Back on MMS

I've been feeling rough the last few weeks, and it's peaked at a nasty cold I've had since Friday. So this morning I'm back on the MMS. I've mixed up a 800ml shaker with 8 drops of MMS. filled it to the top with filtered water. I drink 100ml every hour. The plan is to stay at this dose for a week and review how I'm feeling.

After my very first dose I experienced the same feeling I had the last time I took this solution. Something similar to a minimise explosion just under the surface of my skin (left forearm). Not painful at all, just a very unique feeling. I'm assuming the MMS is destroying some single cell life form close to the skin, which allows me to feel it.

Slow and steady this time round. Projectile vomiting was a horrible experience last time.

Some intresting testimonilas.
