I'll let others respond in terms of cleansing protocols, because what works for me isn't always what's recommended here or in other forums, I am still experimenting. But... if this is a motivating factor for you at all in terms of really turning things around for a final time: A good friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer about 4 years ago. She decided to go ahead and have a lumpectomy and they did take some lymph nodes, but she did not do any of the recommended chemo, radiation or drugs. She radically changed her diet to mostly raw, unprocessed foods, started juicing massive quantities every day, took some anti-cancer supplements, flax oil, some other things. It was a time consuming & expensive protocol, but she felt better than she had in her life on that. All her tests showed her clear of cancer up until just last week. Apparently it has metastasized, and this occurred after she spent a good six months going back to her old habits, eating processed food, drinking coffee, sugar, was doing very little juicing, etc. She had started feeling unwell, broke out with a lot of cysts on her skin, and a biopsy showed a malignancy in one of them. I don't know what she plans to do now, she's fearful, obviously, and is considering chemotherapy,and I am afraid if she chooses that it will be a downhill path from there.
The point of all this is that she believes she had her cancer in some kind of remission when she was being very carful about what she put in her body. If I were her, I would not have had the surgery because I have read that cutting out tumors, esp. when they cut out lymph nodes actually releases cancer cells that were otherwise encapsulated, but that's my personal feeling, and what's done is done. She's gone back to her strict diet & juicing, obviously, and we'll never know for sure whether she got worse again because of her dietary choices, but it was kind of a wake-up call for me, in the sense that I know I can't control a lot of the crap I absorb from the environment - pollution, EMFs, etc., but I CAN control what I shove in my mouth every day or subject my body to, and when I make poor choices, it's purely addiction and attachment. I just have to let go of those attachments and be more aligned with the benevolence & support of the universe, you know? There is a lot of rampant disease out there and it seems like everybody I know is getting cancer, and I think unless you want to be one of those disease statistics, you just have to clean up your act and create a healthy, high-vibrating body to resist disease. A lot of my excuses have to do with being very busy and working a lot, but it is just as easy to go into the freezer and pull out some frozen fruit and make a kefir & lecithin smoothie with green food or something as it is to stop for take-out. Even a light, short fast is a healthier option if I don't have time to prepare something more elaborate.
I think we medicate psychospiritual pain, too, with cigarettes, food, drugs, etc., and so much of healing the body is about cultivating back to our true nature and realizing why we're all really here... to enlighten. All those unhealthy things that temporarily distract us or medicate physical or emotional pain end up taking us off that path. Sometimes it helps me to stay focused on that when I stop thinking about myself & my own circumstances and look at what many others go through who are so much worse off. My problems are petty in comparison to the levels of suffering out there, but we're all in this together and I think on this screwed up, dark planet for a reason. My boyfriend has been practicing Falun Dafa (Falun Gong) for the past 4 years and I'm starting to learn a bit about it myself, and it's theory is that we are in this really low universe for the purpose of cultivating back to buddhahood, essentially, and that our myriad of challenges as humans enhances that process, in the sense that cultivating "in a maze" makes that process more powerful & meaningful. I don't know, I see that happening - I think even things like these natural health support forums on the internet are part of that light emerging out of the darkness. When you look at what's going on around the world, it really looks like we're hurtling toward total destruction, but I'm hopeful that enough people are waking up to turn things around.
Sorry, I'm getting off on a tangent, and I'm certainly not trying to preach, I'm probably not saying anything you don't already know, I guess I'm relating my own gradual awakening. I'm realizing lately how much of all our stuff is rooted in a phsychospiritual blindness of sorts, and that if we don't deal with that aspect of it, all the physical cleansing in the world is ultimately another distraction from our real work....
Anyway, these sorts of things are motivating to me & help bring me back to center when I'm driving by a bakery, craving a quick fix, etc. Just wanted to pass that on.
