Dearest Lord Jesus. We praise you for your overarching and overwhelming supply of grace. Thank you for forgiving us and giving us your thankfulness. Your steadfast love for me endures forever. How great thou art.
So, I’ve been on this diet since the last days of December 2013 to try to heal from neurodegeneration and vasoconstriction which I think was caused by lysoPC in my diet and products most of my life. I started with fruits and vegetables for four days and completely eliminated anything with enzymes, then went to all foods that are not enriched, like just plain rice in very small amounts and plain flour (I know, flour! I keep praying about eliminating it, but I feel like it may be okay.). Anyway, I have tried to eat as much organic as possible and as much fresh as possible. I have had a few church dinners – not stellar moments. My whole aim is to avoid anything that may have unnatural amounts of lysoPC.
I began by watching a few key indicators of malnutrition – my toes, my heartbeat, my right hip (pain from a car wreck that may be heightened by lysoPC), my memory, my balance, and my skin. I can’t really see any changes in those places. I had a few days of really good memory and then had a few days of bad memory,but the good days were so out of the norm that I was happy.
Then I looked at a plant. I am not good about watering plants, and this one has dried ends. I started thinking about the plant. It began withering from the outward ends, and the core is still green. I read that our bodies degenerate from outward (our toes and fingers) to inward (possibly or heart, spine, and head). I think that our bodies may heal from the core outward. Maybe my head, heart, and spinal cord are healing first. Also, a poster commented in a blog that if it took our body so long to get in this shape, then imagine how long it would take to get out of it. Using that mentality, then it may take a little longer, especially since I cannot eat 100% organic with my own personal chef. Also, there are so many sources of unnatural lysoPC; I am probably still exposing myself to it inadvertently.
None of my key indicators are changing yet, but I wonder, how much has changed in my central nervous system? I imagine that in three more months I should have some marked signs of regeneration. I did have a fizzling electric type shock feeling on my left ribs for a long while that is no longer there. I am about to make walnuts, fish, and avocados a staple of my diet, since I see obvious differences in my skin after eating foods with omega-3s and hope this also translates into the rest of my body.
Also, I just found a source for milk that’s only been pasteurized – no vitamin D added! I am happy about this addition.
Hopefully, if this diet works for me, then I can help others. Using premium ingredients and not eating processed food has surpassed my taste expectations. This real food tastes so good. I always knew as a teenager that foods tasted better than the processed stuff I ate. I’d sit there eating these MSG chips thinking, these don’t taste good, why am I still eating them? Then, as a young professional, I’d do the same with frozen food – this doesn’t taste good, but I paid for it, so I’m going to eat it. Then eating in restaurants I’d think, this doesn’t taste good, why am I paying so much for food that doesn’t taste good? I really always knew that processed bread didn’t taste anywhere nearly as good as fresh baked bread. How can that many chemicals compare with flour and oil? Then I started trying organic fruits. They tasted good! Premium food. It really helped me to think about organic as being gourmet. I could eat food that chef’s cook with, but I have to admit I was hesitant to eat “organic” thinking it was weird. Gourmet, premium food – not weird – yummy!
Anyway, will you pray my memory returns as well as for my healing? If I try to heal ‘the hard way,’ by changing my diet and figuring out new foods to shop for and cook, then maybe I can teach someone else how to do it. There are already a lot of people trying to help. I hope I can do a small part in helping those suffering with diseases.
(Oh yeah, I lost about 15 pounds of stubborn weight at the very beginning of this diet and had a nice steady weight since then. My muscles are also more defined than they’ve ever been.)
Jesus, you are awesome. You are the great healer. Will you bring many into your kingdom? Will you rejuvenate our souls and our bodies and use us to bring you glory? You always love us. You always love us no matter what. Thank you Jesus for suffering in our place. Thank you God for seeing Jesus’ perfect righteousness in our place so that we may approach you with confidence and grace. Thank you for your redeeming love. Your resurrection is our hope. You are alive. We will live forever with you. You can never die again. I cannot wait to be with you. Will you come again quickly? May your will be done on earth as it is heaven. What a great day when all knees will bow before you. You alone are worthy of all glory, honor, and praise! We love you Jesus!
