I love reading testimonials that say, “after three days, a lot of things cleared up, and by two weeks, I was symptom-free!” As I research protocols or products I typically become convinced that I, too, will see this sort of progress and cannot wait to get started. But, so far, this has not been my experience. I really thought it would be this time.
I’ve maintained ketosis since Day 1. I am eating 3c of green leafy, and up to 2 cups each of color and sulfur. Some fermented food, some sea vegetables, 8 oz protein per day with the weekly requirement of organ meat. I’m (painfully) exercising every day, meditating every day, journaling every day: I am doing everything right and I’m still not feeling better. In fact, I am achier than I had been.
So, I want to quit.
But, as I drove my son to camp this morning, I realized, “Huh. I can drive.” There have been plenty of times when I couldn’t. So, I may not be “well” or “feeling good” but I am not worse.
So, no quitting for me.
