But, the title doesn't seem particularly 'hot'...not many seem to be reading the post. I'm thinking I won't get a reply...simply because no one who knows is watching right now.
In a way, I am right back where I began, several years ago.
The only statement that I clearly remember, from the woman speaking, was, "Get your hormones balanced."
After going 'round the mulberry bush about self-care and what constitutes 'wholesome' living; and trying to decipher what is r.e.a.l.l.y in 'products'; and how to get the best I can find...I have urinary frequency worse than ever...over years.
The most harmful aspect of it is awakening at night.
Probably, in my case, trouble is caused by both parasites and 'deposits' of various kinds in my organs, gibbling up the works.
I would dearly love to go to a 'care home' of some kind where some nice person would put me on a regime to well-being.
It stinks that no one in my family would know where to start...neither do I.
So, yesterday, I ran organic fresh-picked mixed greens through the food processor, and tossed them into a bowlful of hot, plain macaroni, with dollops of several of my best oils, a splash of lemon juice, and my best salt...and a handful of dried kelp.
I also had a chunk of crumbly aged cheddar and a squeeze of honey.
(However, I've found that fresh lemon may be one of my urinary system irritants.)
A little later I had 1/4 tsp. Himalayan crystal salt in water, then, a 'toddy' of lemon juice, blackstrap molasses, and a good pinch of the Humaworm 'in-between cleanses' herbals, mixed, in hot water.
It was another night of up and down...although I noticed that my urine was much lighter in color, and less odorous...and it didn't sting. And this a.m. it came too quickly for comfort (the lemon juice, I think).
I finally slept, getting up a couple of times, after dawn.
I have a vague headachy feeling in my neck from a touch of die-off, from the 'in-between' herbs I don't take often enough.
Hope I get some hints about this hormone-balancing question. I find the amount of clean water and good salt to take is very confusing, and I don't particularly want things that affect my glands. I really do want to manufacture my own.
