Oh yea and colonic report. Last one was most intense one yet. They shocked looks on Donna's face as she treated me. Within no even 5 minutes, she said ropey stringy looking matter was pouring out of me, And then, 5 more minutes passed and she said 5-6 HUGE long pieces of that nasty looking stuff that you always see on the colon cleansing websites, like Bernard Jensen's site, flew out of me. I graduated to the terminology 'decrepid waste'. I've never heard her use those words and it was all very very old stuff that exited. If your that interested in seeing 'poop' pics, i'm sure you could google around and find plenty. I'm keeping this blog free of them! ;) Had I not been doing colonics, who knows what would have happened in terms of elimination. The last 4 days or so, I wasn't eliminating normally and I knew something drastically different was going on as i've been more in tune with my body these days. This explained it. It backed up and hampered my normal daily elimination. Glad all that garbage is out of me :D Oh yes and the whole first half of the colonic was GAS FREE! Which was a really pleasant feeling but the second half was very gassy.


Btw, Dani is the best company ever. It was a pleasure prepping her some zucchini spaghetti and pesto, one of the simplest yet yummiest raw food dishes imo. I can't believe she's never tried the zucchini pasta. Glad that isn't the case anymore. It's a must for anyone no matter what your diet is like, to at least try some as it's sooooo good and satisfying without the processed sugars and carbs and stuff...

She also ripped apart the weight room and cardio machine. Very impressive. Dani can hang for sure and then some!

Okay so test results from bloodwork taken at the internist's office. Not a special holistic doc or anything; just your standard run of the mill doctor. These are the results that were out of line....

1.
Uric Acid: should be in 2.4-7.0 range
my level 8.6

-High Uric Acid levels is generally an indicator that you are taking in alot of protein and I was always told that it wasn't healthy for me to take in too much protein. I always get this level above normal but if anything it makes me happy because it means I know i'm getting my 1 gram per lb of bw in. I prefer it this way

2.HDL (Good Cholesterol); Homocystine
HDL should be >40; optimally about 60
Homocystine should be in 3.7-13.9 range

my levels
38
16.07


The doctor felt it was because I do not get enough exercise or eat healthy. I tried to tell him that I exercise a ton and do alot of cardio and take in alot of healthy food but my omega 3's over the last 2 months have been virtually non existent. He just kept repeating himself like a broken record with the words he was trained to say it appeared. I knew something would probably be off from teh lack of 3's in my diet. I wasn't surprised. Please take in flax + hemp oils if you do something like this. We need good cholesterol! I will be taking in alot for a bit
and re test this figure in a couple of months.

I just quickly looked up hdl and homocysteine and it appears that it can be linked to low omega 3 consumption but another interesting note is that elevated homocysteine is linked to low b12 yet i had my b12 and mma functional b12 tested and they were well within the normal range. Any thoughts on any of this? I think i'm going to pm DV, see what she says and ask her to post about it. She knows her stuff. Anyone else? These figures have always been in line for me and I have no genetic predisposition to this so i'm fairly certain that once I take in a more balanced efa diet, it should correct itself swiftly...

Every other figure was in line.

Did I mention that Dani arrived here at the exact time of my appointment and this doctor is known to crack many jokes in front of the ladies apparently. I have nver experienced such a crazy situation in my life. It was hysterical. He was like you know what is going to cure this? Sex, 4 times a day at the vry least and goes, you hear that Dani? :shock: :lol: :shock: :lol: I was like oh my gosh this poor girl just met me and look what what i'm dragging her into! He gave her all of my results and wouldn't give them to me and was like Dani, follow me, you with me? We need to take care of him and make sure and this is hat we have to do, etc etc. And a sleu of other wacky comments. It was soooooooo funny. We were in tears :lol:

Tuesday July 15; Day Forty Five LAST DAY OF LIQUIDS!

Tomorrow I break this liquid fast with the use of solid foods. I could go on for much longer and have no desire for solids but i'm going to break it. I'll be on vacation, I want to bulk up a little before doing a competition and i'm not certain this would be the best option and I can always do this again. I got everything I could have asked for out of this experience as a whole. It was the most liberating thin i've ever done. If anyone has questions or concerns, please feel free to pm me. I probably won't be on as often am i'll be in Portland until the 29th with crew but i'll be checking the forum here and there, doing my thing.

Morning Weight: 179lbs (-2lbs) cool, well it looks like i've managed to be able to stay within my desired range and will not fall below 175lb which is AWESOME. See, it's not that hard to control your results. You just have to consume the right amounts.
Bodyfat: 8%


-Performed 2 bag enema flush

Today's Intake
-30oz fruit juice blend (Young thai coconut, frozen wild blueberries, frozen organic
strawberries, frozen wild blueberries
-154 grams spirulina/chlorella blend in 72oz water
77 grams at 11:00am est
77 grams at 1:00am pst (in portland)
-40oz blended soup (2 organic avocados, 1 young thai coconuts, 2 organic garlic cloves)
-23oz organic vegetable JUICE (1 whole bunch organic purple kale, 1 whole bunch organic
dandelion greens, 7 stalks organic celery)
NO INTAKE UNTIL 4am est; 1am pst (portland)
**Layover in Houston and I saw a smoothie place called Colombo so I was so excited to have something as you can't take liquids on the plane. They told me ONE piece of fruit in 32oz of water blended would cost like $6.50 and 99cents for each additional fruit. :evil: WHAAAAT?? I just walked away, said no thank you and make myself a fruit blend and algae shake when I got to Cheeke's house :D
-32oz water
-58oz organic fruit juice blend (6 organic bananas; organic strawberries)

Might as well put up some really fun pics as Dani was here to shoot them and it's the last day on the feast!

(Raw Zucchini spaghetti pasta and pesto sauce, Dani striking a pose with her meal, cut open baby organic melon, me being mr. green harvesting algae from the bulk bins to take with me to Portland, organic pineapple) oh yeh and my new glasses. I haven't owned a pair in 9 years so i fugred i'd buy a pair and give my eyes a break from contacts from time to time 8)

No worries about the HDL as long as the LDL is low. LDL should optimally be below 80 as I understand. For homocysteine, you need B12, Folate and B6 to get it down. Some people still don't respond well and I Dr Fuhrman uses some kind of folate supplement for them. I can't find the article/newsletter where I read it though. Sorry.

Thanks for your input

My LDL is 77

My B12 level is 803 and it is supposed to be in the range 211-946. He couldn't test the MMA with my insurance as they wont cover the test if there is no reason to get it and in the medical world's eyes, if you have a safe level of b12, there is not valid reason to do MMA (functional).

That's pretty up there, I thought it would have been much lower? I guess the b12 from the algaes does go in but can you use it?

I wonder if my b12 is available in the body but not being utilized properly?????

The B12 from the algae and rejuvelac is the most bioavailable form. Its proper utilization and absorption depends on internal cleanliness. As you already understand, intestinal cleansing is a crucial part of the process. B12 is actually manufactured in a clean intestine.

You might want to try this procedure after a colonic. Blend briefly three tablespoons lactobacillus bifidus with 8 ounces of pure water. Warm to body temperature. Insert as a retention enema (implant - see www. survivalinthe21stcentury.com) using an enema bag and a 12 or 16 inch colon catheter. Retain implant for at least twenty to thirty minutes.

This will recolonize your large intestine with beneficial flora which will both increase absorption of exogenous B12 in foodstuffs and improve internal manufacture of natural B12.

Again, congratulations on your successful metamorphasis.

Love, Richard

Oh, I thought you took the MMA! There are B12 analogues in (among other things) spirulina (which I know you eat a lot of) that can raise the B12 values (as I understand some tests don't make any difference between the different types of B12). I think it would be a good idea to test the MMA since it can be the analogues swimming about in your blood that is raising the value.

Thanks for the input guys! I will look into the costs of a MMA test for the future.

So it is finally over but i'm not happy or overly excited and kind of don't want it to end but i'm also ready to break this feast. The soak water was incredibly tasty and super sweet. The reality of the whole situation hasn't exactly hit me yet but i'm sure it will the second I start to 'chew' on solids again. I'll youtube the experience as it is a very special one to me.

The changes and just everything throughout the duration of this as well as how supportive everyone has been is truly surreal. I thank you all so much! I couldn't imagine how fun this would be until I actually got into it. I remember telling bigbwii about the feast when I fist started and he said it would be a breeze and I would have a blast. He was so right.

Day 1 will be: soaked prunes, some solid fruits, blends
Day 2-4 will be: same as day 1 + solid vegetables
Day 5: I will try to slowly add other things into the diet, little by little.

I think this shall be ok. It should feel alot better then all the gorging I used to do in the pat when breaking 2 week fasts.

I spoke to my colonist about the whole enema bag dependency and she said i should cut down to 1 bag every other day and still do them for about a week after this is broken and then stop, not to just stop right away. So it looks like enema bags at vv for a bit, sorry fellow vacationers!



Wednesday July 16th, DAY FORTY SIX Last Day!!!!
EATING SOLID FOOD TODAY IN A FEW MINUTES!!!!

No more bf and bw checking, time to chill


-Performed 2 bag enema flush

Today's Intake
-16oz soak water from the soaked organic prunes
-About to have a bowl of soaked prunes, wish me luck.......
-aaaaaaaach :shock: :shock: :shock: ; I need juice to get this solid food out of my palette :roll: :wink:
-It was a very interesting and still VERY foreign sensation. I will need some time to get used to this!!!!!! (Video in an hour or so after it uploads.
-50oz organic vegetable juice blend, 140oz organic fruit juice blend, 205grams spirulina chlorella blend in 100oz water
SOLIDS CONSUMED:
-2 organic oranges
-1 lb lychee berries
-1/8lb organic cherries
-2 organic pink lady apples
-1/2lb lognan berries
and that is all she wrote.....


I didn't want to overdo it right away. This will be a gradual 5 day transition. So far so good. A little rumbling in the tummy but all in all no major problems. I bought some raw food gourmet goodies to have on sunday and on as well.... raw cacao bars, sprouted sunflower seed crackers, sprouted museli cereal, sprouted flax/foccacia break, raw organic walnut butter, i think that is all..........

Pics!! (Dani is a fan of durian! Me and Dani enjoying some garlic/coconut/avocado blended soup, Soaked prunes and soak water at robert/tasha/jessifly's humble abode!)

aw...this is brilliant, I am so glad you were able to get out of it as much as you have!
It is a very special experience.

When we fast, cleanse, etc. we must always realize that that is truly when we
gain something, not lose something. We gain more insight and vision into
our inner selves than would have been previously dreamt of :wink:


I really do feel as though.. raw foods, fresh foods, and cleansing is
what makes our dreams into reality in this life.
It is what gives us the strength to go deep enough, inside, to realize our passion.


:D

I am proud of you..and inspired.. and...and, yes, Congratulations.
Your photos are stellar.. I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but your
photographic nature has become intensely clear while you've been cleansing...
I notice the same things happen with my photography when I am eating and feeling
very fluid.

:heart:

Andesuma, thank you for your kind words and yes I did enjoy the picture taking and clarity that eminated from this whole amazing cleanse! You're an amazing person and it is an absolute pleasure meeting you in person. Words/internet cannot describe how special you are and complex in so many wonderful ways. Not like I have you figured out or something after conversing as you have so much to offer and there is no way you could possibly 'unmask' in one evening of connecting, which is why I look forward that much more to conversing once again before I part ways with portland.. ;)

Video and pictures of me breaking the juice feast! ahhhhhhhhhhhhhHHHAAAAHHHHHH :psycho: :P

VIDEO OF ME BREAKING THE FEAST!!! **note** i did not mention everything I wanted to talk about, it was more of a just grand finale. I will make another video once I return back home. Will post results and recap and stuff like that as well.....

The "chewing" video above is interesting. However, I was shocked to see from it that Lean and Green turned into a rabbit after he ended his JUICEFEAST, and also that he has replicated and quadrupled himself. I had heard about rabbits, but I didn't expect this.

Does that happen if you eat too many vegetables and fruits? Is this morph that we have visible video evidence of a side effect of excessive durian consumption. Can someone please help me?
