(Day 40 of treatment on the Brewer Protocol.)
The first month I did the Protocol, it was hit and miss at best. The nausea was wicked and so I had to start and stop while my primary care doc and I set out to figure out what to do.
With some trial and error I found that it’s most definitely the Chelating RX that’s causing stomach upset. I don’t suspect it happens to everyone. Not sure. But, as I have ulcers anyway I’m not surprised that it was not helping matters.
I also went back on Sucralfate and Doc has made sure I have plenty of Zofran if I need it. The upswing to the Sucralfate is that it’s on Dr. Brewer’s list of things that can help me eliminate these mycotoxins.
So, moving forward I plan to write here every few days or so to keep track of my progress for myself and Dr. Brewer, but also to share with all of you who want to know what this process is like.
Yesterday I did my treatment like a good girl. Every time I fire that nasal rocket of medicine up my nose, I complain. And, every time I complain, I remind myself that in less than a year I am likely to be feeling better than I have in many, many years.
I also remind myself of the kind of suffering in this world that is so much greater than mine. Helps me force myself off the pity-potty.
Below is a photo of the package I’ll be receiving each month throughout this process. In the beginning I thought it was going to cost about $70 a month. As it turns out it’s more like $90. Even at that price for 12 months, the cost will be only $1080. All I have to do is compare that number with the thousands and thousands of dollars I’ve spent on docs and scans and tests in just the last few years alone, and I am happy to give them ninety bucks.
In addition to the Chelating RX, I open a blue capsule of Nystatin, mix it with a little distilled water and saline and inhale. I don’t think I’m having any side effects of the Nystatin at all.
I woke up this morning feeling very much like I’d consumed several cups of coffee in my sleep – jittery and shaky and with a general feeling of anxiety. I’m not sure what that’s about honestly. Maybe I’m sleep-caffeinating. 🙂
The great news for this day is that I haven’t yet had to take any Zofran at all and it’s nearing supper time. The crappy news is that I looked at myself in my magnifying mirror while wearing my glasses. An old, sick woman with sallow skin and dull eyes was in there… and it makes me sad. I have aged like no other in the last ten years.
