Regardless of all of the healthy things I've done over the last 7 years I feel as though my brain is in need of a detox.
I am constantly aware of my brain. Hard to explain and also feel "behind the veil" much, much to often. However I have been doing green drinks, coffee enema's and Iodine (companions also)to help remove toxins along with other things and of course not putting the nasties in.
I'm not sure if its candida, heavy metals, fluoride (from years of antidepressants) or just inflammation in general but my brain feels sort of swollen for lack of a better word...have a sort of band around my head, pressure at the temples...and a feeling that it is under assault by toxins.
There are so many possibilities that it's hard to make a post like this because I'm not sure exactly what I'm dealing with...maybe possible damage because of the antidepressant use in the past..who knows.
Suffice it to say however...I do believe that my original Depression very possibly had a yeast overgrowth/leaky gut origin. So I do do probiotics/don't do Sugar etc.
The yeast issues (as an origin) has further credence (at least in my mind) when I consider the fact that my mom had thyphoid fever as a young girl of 13 (which I've discovered is a bacterial infection) My thoughts are (although they may be misplaced) that because of this she too had an overgrowth of yeast/and low good bacteria...which might have been passed along. And even if I got that one wrong she had at least one baby via caesarean (I was the largest 8 pound 71/2 ounces) so that I might have missed good bacteria that way ... either way I may have had this issues (low bacteria) from the get go...although I also may be over thinking this...lol!
All I know is that I continue to do things to detox and it works ... I feel at times very present (veil lifted) often I can tell that the toxins have been removed other places in my body too...like feeling stiff, sluggish etc...a few coffee enema's and then I feel energetic and spry...only for it to reoccur over and over.
I know we are very toxic today (and it will most definitely continue to improve/it just is so disheartening not to completely turn a corner on this one) but just looking for ideas and suggestions on how to combat the brain thing...if you have any ideas ... that is!
