Hi ladies--As promised, I typed up the three-week "turbo detox" that my Naturopath put me on that gave me my life back. After doing this, I had ZERO anxiety attacks (I was having around four or five per week), and I came out of my brain fog, etc. I haven't re-taken my silicone test, but I'm sure the levels are down simply because of how I feel. I actually feel like the old me again! The only thing that didn't improve for me was the eyesight that I lost in my right eye. EVERYTHING else went away....and I was in BAAAAAAAAAAD shape (For my story, read the post "My Mirena Hell...and what I'm doing"). I was four months post removal when I did this detox.
Eventually, I am going to put the below detox, along with my story, etc. into a blog so that I can communicate with any ladies who may have questions, etc....I just haven't had time to get that all set up yet. I just promised that I would get the detox information out there soon, and I wanted to keep that promise. I remember being where some of you are...desperate, helpless, scared to death. I also remember committing to myself that I would be someone who wouldn't forget how frustrating it was to not be able to find help... I promised that I would come back and post findings if I found something that worked. Ladies, this worked for me. I have my life back...in every way.
That being said--I AM NOT A DOCTOR. I don't claim to be. And these supplements must be ordered by a physician, I believe. So, I hope that you can find someone who can/will help you out by ordering them.
My goal is now to help as many women as possible--so please contact me if the below information is unclear or you have any questions. I will get the blog put together and an address out there soon. This is simply the "Turbo Detox" post copy and pasted here.
I hope that it works for you the way that it did for me. Smile ladies... if it does, you are about to have your life back in less than a month--AND be medication free.
All my prayers and support are with you. Best wishes for your new post Mirena life.
Okay…bear with me here. I’m going to do the best I can to explain all of the stages of the detox that helped me out of my nightmare. It’s quite a bit, so if you have any questions—or anything isn’t clear—PLEASE make a comment about it, and I’ll keep altering as necessary to make it as understandable as possible. Here we go…..
When my doctor finally did the silicone test for me, saw that I did, in fact, have the elevated levels, he basically washed his hands of me and told me that there was nothing that he could do. I was told that I needed to find a Naturopath that specialized in cleanses/detoxes, etc. Okay….fine. I found one who told me that it WAS possible to clean out my blood/body systems/etc. that were poisoned. He also told me that it was possible to do it naturally. In fact, any additional medications were only going to inhibit my body’s ability to clean itself out because this was a toxicity issue to begin with…and all medications are basically different levels of poison. He also told me that was going to have to be patient. I needed to fight against the urge to take “quick fix” meds like anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, etc., and understand that those meds only “numb” the underlying problem…they don’t fix it. A naturopathic detox aims at cleansing the body and healing it from the inside out…and that takes time. At this point, I was willing to ANYTHING to get my life back, so it was a promise that I could easily make.
My Naturopath, who I will call Dr. J from this point on, explained how he uses supplements from a company called STANDARD PROCESS because they are whole foods based nutrition (getting vitamins from the store that say “Natural” don’t mean anything anymore…that only means that atleast 10% of the vitamin is made from something found on earth or in space…can you believe that?). So, apparently—in his explanation—the key is that it should be WHOLE FOODS BASED supplements. Standard Process uses that. The supplements can be ordered online at http://www.standardprocess.com,
but I believe that they must be ordered by a physician. Hopefully, you ladies will find a doctor who will be willing to help you out!
I guess before I go in to the whole detox, I should explain what Dr. J found as far as what all was “messed up” with me at my initial evaluation/appointment. The systems of my body that were “abnormal”/struggling/toxic were as follows:
--Hormones (uterus and ovaries)
By far, the two worst issues were my liver and my hormones, so Dr. J. decided to mainly address those two first. In his words, “Much of the time, if you can find the ‘headpin’ problem, you would be amazed at how many other problems improve on their own.” He believed that the toxicity of my liver was causing a whole host of other problems. Of course the liver was the worst because this was a poisoning issue, and the liver is the “filter” that it all has to go through. In addition, my hormones were off the chart.
Dr. J explained that he was going to do a “Turbo Detox” on my since so many of my systems were messed up. This type of detox can only be three weeks long before you must let your liver rest again.
Okay…here we go.
The “TURBO DETOX”
Length: 3 weeks
(I felt like a whole new woman after this….HONESTLY! Get ready, though, it is a LOT of supplements! 52 per DAY! Trust me, though…it is worth it in the end!)
Again, these are all bottles of supplements from Standard Process:
1. SP Cleanse—7 pills, 3 times a day = 21 pills/day
2. SP Complete—This is a big bottle of powder that you mix into a shake. I did two scoops of powder per shake (with fruit and apple juice). You take THREE shakes per day
3. Gastro Fiber—3 pills/day
4. Cholacol II—10 pills/day. I did 3, 3 and then 4
The above supplements were for the main liver detox. The SP Cleanse is to detox everything out, the SP Complete puts all of the “good stuff” back in to your system, the Cholacol help the toxins bind to your poop and the Gastro Fiber is to help you poop it out. And, in case you were wondering, no your poop isn’t any more gross than usual! You may just find that you poop more…
Now—on to the supplements for my hormonal readjustment:
5. Symplex F—2 pills, 3 times per day = 6 pills
6. Utrophin PMG –2 pills, 3 times per day = 6 pills
7. Ovex P – 2 pills, 3 times per day = 6 pills
Okay! The above is what I did for three weeks. Also, just to detox as much as I could, I also did FAR-Infared saunas as much as possible (they make you sweat a TON), and Dr. J would occasionally “zap” my liver for ten minutes with a machine—that was about twice a week. Also, drink TONS of water. The more you poop, pee and sweat, the more toxins you get out.
The next post will be the supplement program that I started after three three-week turbo detox was finished. It is basically smaller doses of some of the supplements that I was already taking, plus a few more that would address my adrenal function (to help with my complete lack of energy) and my overall health. I am still currently on this program since my detox ended only a few weeks ago.
At this point, I am going to stay on my current “program” (that will be on the next post) for about three months. At that point, I will make the decision whether or not to do the main detox again. So far, though, I feel great! As I said earlier, I felt like a new person after the turbo detox was over.
I’ll start working on the next post and be back soon.
