I don't want to jinx myself and should probably wait more days before posting a hopeful message, but right now I'm hopeful. I deal with numerous health issues, including a SEVERE headache 24/7 for 24 years from 3 neck injuries that way over 100 doctors and healers have not been able to help (I'm 99% sure due to things I've experienced that my skull slipped on C1 and is crushing nerves into my brain), major IBS-C since birth...which has dramatically worsened the past few years, edema, and blood sugar problems. After my 4/11/2018 3rd head smashing injury and going to MORE useless doctors, I took away 2 things...don't go to anymore doctors...and pay attention when 3 of them said my severe inflammation may mean I have an underlying autoimmune disease. I could blow off 1 comment, but when 3 different people mentioned how much systemic inflammation I have, that needs to be paid attention to. One chiropractor who took full spine images (I'd had tons of CTs and MRIs of just my neck and head but never full spine until 10/2018) was truly horrified at my digestive tract when she saw it.
Although I do have REAL structural damage to my neck and base of skull (plus a congenital malformation in my skull), the ONE factor that ties all of these things together is inflammation. I've been off gluten for years after finding out my dad is a Celiac. I've been tested and am not officially a Celiac, but I had bad gluten antibodies in blood tests and physical symptoms from gluten. (A weird issue that cleared up after getting off gluten was that really bad, bloody, painful, scabby sores up in my nose cleared up.) So, I know that food intolerances definitely cause health problems.
Now, I GREATLY improved...i.e. cured...my feet, ankles, lower legs edema months ago by going on a horrifying parasite cleanse using mimosa pudica, activated charcoal, and diatomaceous earth. I need to say that the DE was like freaking concrete in my innards so I had to quit using it after not very long. The cleanse is still giving me nightmares from what came out! OMG! Parasite cleanses are not for wusses, let me tell you! (continued below) - 34 minutes ago
