7/5/16 Update

For my last update I noticed a trend that wasn’t very big, but it was exciting. Now I look at my resting heart rate and I see what I would consider a normal resting heart rate for me. This tells me that I am on the right path.

I have been eating a Gerson related diet. Lots of juiced veggies and a little fruit. I have modified it with a bit higher fat than he calls for. Today I will have more blood tests and meet with a nutritionist. I have recorded my last three days of eating and have been fasting for the new blood work. I am excited to learn more information.

Another bit of information I have encountered along this journey is body temperature. There are those out there who use hyperthermia therapy to treat cancer. It is said that cancer has a low metabolic temperature and brings down the body temperature. My body temperature has been on the low side, around 97, for a very long time. The therapies suggested to raise body temperature usually involves a sauna. I saw a video for a DIY sauna for under $150. It involves heat lamps. I will look into this more, but for now I am using a diaphoretic herb, yarrow. This is a way to raise the body temperature from the inside. To truly get my body temp up, I would like to try a sauna and yarrow working together. I did do my exercises in the sun yesterday as well as drinking 3 cups of yarrow tea. This morning, my body temp was up. I don’t know if our thermometer is correct, but yesterday it said my temp was 96, and this morning it was 97.3. I will keep track of this and see if I can verify this thermometer. I question it because everyone in my house had a low body temp.

I’m not sure exactly what is working, the Gerson-ish diet, the apricot seeds, the body temp, but I am feeling better today. Thanks to everyone for their prayers.  God is guiding me, showing me what my body needs. Please pray for the doctor and nutritionist visits today. I am looking forward to learning more.

Do something for your health today. A few minutes deep breathing could help beat that stress. Your choices today will mold your future.
