ok - glad you found it - remember - these foods are likely fine for the average person but what we are learning  - through genetics - is that there is probably about 10% of the population that has genetic SNPs which leave them impaired for handling certain things - that is why vaccines are fine for the majority of people but very damaging for a small group.  there are some really brilliant scientists working on the evidence for this and it will all come out in the next decade or so.

point being - its wise to avoid these food items while the brain is injured and recovering - once its recovered - the gene SNPs will likely go silent again and you will be able to have whatever you want.  that is how it is for me!   i suspect its wise to avoid most things on the list for a good 8-12 months  - it's a small sacrifice to heal.  and frankly - when you are able to have everything again - it tastes ten times better and you appreciate it even more!

I will defend the positive effects of vitamins eternally, I understand the skepticism and many in the medical field dismissing their impact on one's health, but just in life, with my own family Ive seen far too many numbers that at least suggest vitamins have had a positive impact on a number of different bodily systems.
im no scientist like you guys though! lol
Its a wonderful testimony, and I appreciate your thoughtfulness and articulation, and your correspondence.
May good health be with you for many, many years

[...], you have contributed much to this site; you have stayed around and generously tried to help many with your intelligent, hard-won approach. You're a fighter who truly deserves your recovery. I'm very grateful for the knowledge and experience you've shared.

Thank you also for confirming the vital role of mindset! I couldn't agree more.

Our health histories are somewhat similar, and I've been following a program similar to yours (differing in some smaller details, mainly a few specific supplements, and gently treating infections - as this improved sleep for me considerably). I agree that there's no one quick fix or silver bullet - it all has to come together. And, as in your case, I'm a huge proponent of diet and targeted, careful supplementation. My outcomes/results, so far, confirm your conclusions. It's hard work, but worth it.

Also, great reply to Pinky's points. My conclusions about modern medicine are the same as yours, after having had to turn my back on the mainstream in order to heal from several 'incurable' conditions (see signature). I love to read stories such as that of your niece, as I have witnessed this myself.

A question regarding bentonite clay, please: I've been considering adding Sonnes #7 to my regimen, as I struggle with spontaneous candida die-off after my taper. My concern is that bentonite also removes some healthy minerals from the body... How long did you use it for? Thanks!

I've bookmarked your success story to keep inspired and refine my approach further. Thanks again for the hope and your invaluable contribution.

Warmest congratulations. Wishing you a beautiful life and abundant wellness!
Lara

Hey Lara - thanks for your kind note.  It means a lot.  I also wish you the very best in your healing journey - it appears you've also been through a lot.  I just read your signature and it is also heart warming to know that there are partners/spouses out there who stick it out and provide love/support during such a terrible ordeal. 

Good question about the bentonite - in the past when i used it - it was for about 6 months.  This time I actually used it a full year and only recently discontinued - so far - no issues with having stopped it.  I would give it a try at a low dose and see how you do.

Kudos for being brave enough to gently tackle the infections - i did lots of candida cleanses and other things over the years when i was well - so - i imagine that helped me overall - but they were pretty rough when i was healthy let alone going through withdrawal while the body is so sensitive.  I imagine you can just use some of the herbs on much lower doses and still make progress.  I find most protocols are just too aggressive for people who are already pretty ill / impaired.   I used the Cowden protocol to treat the lymes in addition to traditional medicine and i think the combination really helped.

My niece is indeed an inspiration and i knew if she could recover with how bad things got - that i could too.  What breaks my heart is the expense involved.   Some day if i am able - I would love to open a foundation that provides funding to families that have been impacted by medication / vaccine induced injuries....... recovery is possible with the right resources.

Handling this is about perspective.  Before this - i would fret if i gained a few pounds, had a few hormonal zits, or was 10 minutes late to an appointment - now - having survived this - i can put so much in perspective and the remainder of my life will be much better for having gone through this.

Also - i worked in a level 1 trauma center at one of the top hospitals in the US - and i witnessed many miracles during that time and i also witnessed people demonstrating more strength than I could ever fathom.  I saw people lose their legs and still find a way to be happy and positive and more forward.   I saw parents hold their children as they passed from a long battle from cancer.    What we are going through is hell but it will pass at some point - other people are left permanently impaired with no hope for much improvement.

Wishing you love, light and healing!

[...]... Your reply and kindness mean so much, especially today... Very, very hard going - I needed that, and it helped greatly.

Thanks, also, for getting back to me on the bentonite.

Regarding the infections: Your story really put my mind at ease. Due to my past history of life-threatening infections (which I now believe was caused by meds damaging the gut and the immune system), up till now I've been terrified of not treating any underlying infections aggressively. It has been beyond hellish doing so during w/d... I feel I can breathe easier now, take it more gently, after reading your story.

Also, I understand you wanting to get on with life. You have overcome so much...I know that no words can do it justice, so I won't try. Will you still very occasionally be checking for PMs, or further replies/questions on here? We can all do with every bit of wisdom we can get...

Love your idea for that foundation! I would definitely contribute in any way possible. Please do keep me/us up to date. My dream is to learn as much as I can about iatrogenic injury (I have a background in clinical research & natural health) and withdrawal, and then to specialise in providing research, holistic support, testing, targeted supplementation, etc. for those affected. Currently looking into areas of study to refine this.

You have given me back hope on a brutal day. Cannot thank you enough. Love to you always, friend.

Hi [...],

Great to hear your story, I'd only just found your original 6month post last [...] and sent it to a relative (who's helping me through this.)

Can I ask about the breathing, I notice it improved after 8 weeks for you, did this happen overnight or gradually? I feel like I naturally take very shallow breaths now and end up breathing with my gut more, I'm also at around 8 weeks.

Cheers,
[...]

that particular symptom was pretty scary - i kept telling people that my instinct to breathe was just gone..... i couldnt find any way to describe it other than manual breathing.   like i would exhale but the instinct to breathe back in wasnt happening.

in withdrawal round 1  - right after spine surgery - it was unrelenting - and only went away when i restarted the valium - so funny that i didnt make the connection then.  in withdrawal round 2 - it was unrelenting for about 8 weeks - i believe it went away pretty much overnight - there was no gradual improvement - it went from bad to gone.   during a wave - it reappeared for a few days and then went away for good after that.

i think that symptom comes from the vagus nerve being in distress.  i did lots of reading about how to stimulate the vagus nerve - things like gargling and chanting can help.  i honestly did it - figuring i had nothing to lose and lots of time on my hands.  not sure if it did anything or not! 

thankfully it did stop - hang tough - it will go away at some point!

Having trouble finding that food list.  Could you please help direct there?
Thank you
