I understand your reluctance to have colonics, but I have been so glad that I decided to do this. The long drive is a pain for you, and I'm sure you want to know for certain that the investment of time, effort, etc...will be rewarded.
I *DO NOT* use Epsom Salts
in my flushes; at least the last 4 I havn't. I use a protocol similiar to the Coke flush except I use lots of grapefruit (the juice of two rubyred grapefruits), the juice of one lemon, and NO COKE. I sip on that, use castor oil packs over my liver, then apply a hot water bottle on top of it. The heat helps soften and loosen up the stones, and the castor oil pack helps dilate the ducts. This has worked extremely well for me. I might even almost be done flushing my liver as I'm only passing extremely bright, neon-green stones today (new ones). I honestly thought that I had a long way to go, but maybe the issue is that I need to focus on my bowel more. I have passed over 1,000 stones to date.
Regarding the Primal Defense....if I were you, I would write an e-mail to a site that offers it like www.needs.com. They have true medical experts/naturopaths, etc...that work for needs. This may have come up before as a question. However, if you decide to purchase the product after finding out about the gluten, you might want to purchase it from www.vitaminshoppe.com (they might be cheaper, not sure, but check it out if you decide to buy it).
I feel so bad for you! I didn't know you had such bad vertigo and migraines! My heart goes out to you. I understand exactly how you feel. Fortunately, I have been able to get ahold of so many of my symptoms, but it's been a long process. I've known about candida for 15 years, and have done so many parasite
cleanses, detoxes, juice fasts, etc.....it's only now that I am seeing radical improvement, especially after liverflushing and getting colonics.
This is what I would do if I were you. I would go to Andreas' board or Shelleycat's board and ask if colonics
are recommended for people with celiac's. My understanding is that it is. I believe if you can remove the mucous and plaque in your intestines, and replenish it with some good soil microorganisms (Primal defense), you can recover much more quickly. The founder of Primal Defense was literally DYING when he recovered with the homeostatic soil microorganisms. He couldn't keep weight on at all. That's why I think your recovery might be tied to cleansing your bowels. Another thing about cleansing the bowels is that you remove a lot of parasites
you didn't know you had. I removed some WEIRD looking parasites
when I started flushing, along with about 70 egg sacks. I usually passed them when I did an enema, and sometimes when I passed the stones.
Like you, I got some Amalgams
removed a few weeks ago, and felt HORRIBLE the days after having them removed. But I probably have had heavy metal toxicity my whole life. I have felt a lot better since using the footpads. There is also a spray you can use, that has been clinically proven to be very effective with children with autism, add, etc...I got that too, though it is very pricey. I am not using it now. I think after I finish with the footpads, I'm going to use the spray. The footpads are cheaper, though. The spray is $125.00, but probably lasts for a few months. If you want to know more about the spray, let me know and I'll provide a link.
I hope this helps somewhat!
Let me know if I can answer anymore questions.
