I see a lot of people telling you really what you need to do. One thing that I will INSIST on, no matter what you do, EVERYTIME you have a negative thought, NO MATTER how small, even thinking, 'I am constipated', COUNTER it with 2 POSITIVE thoughts, i.e. 'My bowls work in accordance with nature', 'I have a bowl movement after every meal', 'I feel great', 'I look great', 'I am healthy', 'Ilook awesome', 'I feel awesome'... I think you get the idea :D
Ummm typing is not my favorite activity, lol.. or I would explain what it does to your brain chemistry and how it effects your personality. BUT, you will see the results for yourself. Read a few good books on POSITIVE THINKING. I will post a few links at the end.
I was sick for 11 years, incapacitating pains and chronic fatigue, I cried, I whined, I complained, what not. I am thankful for everything I went through. My illness taught me a world of difference. My body refused to live a below normal or 'compromised life', where you work your a@@ off to find yourself short at the end of month. My body steered me and forced me towards nature. First I learned about the importance of organic, then locally grown, then wild crafted, tree ripened fruit and berries. Nowadays I am reading about BIO-DYNAMIC farming. The energies, the forces in that food. How your body reacts when you walk barefoot, and OH SO MUCH MORE. My WONDERFUL, AMAZING body refused to wear synthetic shoes, live in toxic airconditioned homes,, all this time I kept thinking something was wrong with me, because I compared myself to everyone around me, ignoring my own individual needs.
For edema, I read about parsley root tea. Now, don't run to your grocer for parsley root. Try growing your own. It's quite easy to grow. Don't use any chemical plant foods you are not sure of. Buy the BEST stuff you can. Now.. edema is not your main problem, it is the outcome of your chronic constipation. Read MH's book.
Also read all of the following links. Don't despair my dear. You will get answers. Your days will be sunnier than you ever thought possible.
