For me, knowing what it is that is hurting in the body is only the beginning of the search for the whole truth of the matter. In one sense it was a bit of a relief for me to have my Iridology friend discover that my small intestines were inflamed and coated with a quarter inch of mucous, however I knew that knowing just that wasn't going to change that condition. I knew I needed to make some changes and yet I needed to know exactly what had caused the over-acidity. My friend first suspected my diet and I actually had immediately suspected that as my most recent diet had become largely a raw dairy diet consisting of about a cup of raw, cultured cream, a few cups of raw home made kefir, a couple ounces of raw butter plus some raw honey all blended into a shake. I was drinking about three pints of this shake on a daily basis and in the evening might have either a couple bananas or avocado on a raw cracker. My friend said the elevated bilirubin indicated a difficulty with protein digestion and if that's true then the cow's dairy is very highly suspect. I've reduced the dairy to less then half of what it was before and added "Lacto-Zyme Dairy-Eze" by Rainbow Light every time I have dairy which now is mixed 50/50 with a green drink. My aim is to switch to goat’s milk ASAP knowing that it has a smaller protein molecule than the cow's milk.
In addition to the dietary changes I also suspect that unexpressed/undigested emotions have had a bearing in this situation as well. Fortunately I am already in a kind of support group that is devoted to telling the truth. Before I went to the hospital I was teetering on whether or not I wanted to stay in the group, not knowing if all the participants were ready for "radical" truth telling. Now I count my participation in the group as essential in meeting my need for support in my own truth telling process! There is a passage from an ancient book (I believe it is one of the Dead Sea Scrolls) that says something to the effect that what we hold within us will destroy us whereas if we let it out it will save us! I should do a search and recover that particular saying.
And so I am thankful to have been alerted to a condition that I was either unconscious about or partly ignoring. There is no mistaken that on the physical level at least the pH had gotten way out of balance. And I can't help but to suspect a major impact from a long standing difficulty in expressing unpleasant feelings even though that particular "Body-Mind" relationship could be difficult to verify, at least within a medical model. However, I feel no need to have to prove this kind of relationship to anyone and that in itself is a freedom I can live with!
My next step in this recovery process is to get a product from Standard Process called "Okra-Pepsin E3". This is suppose to help digest the mucous coating on the small intestines. There is also another product that my chiropractor mentioned that would allow for the whole coating to be eliminated/excreted as a whole item that could reach 20 feet in length! Wow, talk about freedom, that would be a very liberating day!
