week one of detox done

This week I started drinking this detox (Mediclear) powder 1x a day for the first 4 days, but now I am up to 2x a day.  Sticking to recommended diet this weeks has been easy as I have been doing it for a few months now.  Next week however will be going no meat what so ever. Won't be extremely hard, but I will have to do a little more will power.

OK one little cheat I have allowed myself is my moring cup of coffee. But I have go to organic beans.
I am sorry but I am not ready to give it up.  My left foot was feeling pretty raw last Thursday so I allowed myself one dose of steroid cream and that has calmed things right down.

If I am not better off after this detox then I am going to start looking in to homeopathic medicine as many people have lots of luck with that.

My right foot still looks fine. ;)

Started Detox MediClear Plus Today

The post says it all. This morning I put Mediclear in my smoothie.  The diet changes that they call for will not be a big deal for me considering what I've been doing already.

I also saw a pretty neat video on nutrition so I am cutting down on animal products again.
check it out!

Toxicity Hair Report in

As you may recall I had a hair sample sent in to the lab to test myself for toxic metals.
I am dangerously high in Cobalt, Nickel, Barium, Gold, and Titanium.

Colbalt and Nickel are especially known to cause skin issues so maybe just maybe this is the key/cause to my psoriasis.

I have no idea how I got these metals in my system.  I work in an office in California - no exposure to manufacturing - but there it is.

My holistic Dr is going to put me on MediClear by Thorne to help me detox.  It you have any experience with this let me know.

He also told me to stop worrying about every little thing that I eat.  I seem to have a healthy diet and I am going to drive myself crazy trying to avoid everything that might give me a reaction.

So with that news I treated myself to a chocolate chip cookie. What I am really dying for is my saugage lasagne!!

My hand and feet are about the same as the last set of photos so nothing new to report there.

GMO Wheat and Gluten Bad Bad Bad

If you are reading this and you are still eating gluten stop now.
Doctors are now admitting to links to gluten and psoriasis. Today I took my son in for a gluten blood test for he has had nausea for 3 months.
Many people have allergies to gluten found in bread because most bread is a new form of GMO wheat that has a higher percentage of gluten in it. Our bodies see this as a foreign substance that our immunity system tries to fight. Eventually your system tires, causing bad symptoms. Nausea, constipation, psoriasis, overall inflammation, the body, joint pain, etc.

July 5th

I had a blast on the fourth of July with friends and family.  I was able to paddle board and swim in the bay and the water was warm - very rare for California.

I feel like my right foot looks normal - if you didn't know I had psoriasis I think it would be hard to tell there was something wrong with it.  However my left foot and my left hand still look like I have issues.  I don't want to say they look bad because I have seen them a lot worse but they don't look cute.

However I must say that today my left foot and hand actually look better.  Maybe it was a day at the beech with the salt water.

I am running out of many of my supplements and I don't see that dr again for another week or so.  I think he should be starting me on my detox clay soon.

Also, I am not sure if you guys have seen this on inspire, but I found an interesting article that talks about salt in take being linked to auto-immune diseases like psoriasis.  The article that I first saw said it isn't so much the salt we eat, but the type we eat.  Most of our salt is stripped of over 80 minerals that are found naturally.  So I have invested a few bucks in some pink Himalayin salt.

I wished I could find the first article I read so I could post it. But simply google yourself and you will see many articles written about salt and auto-immune diseases.

Take care!
