(25-day raw food diet, day 5, continues...)
Had a clementine, and a salad: green lettuce, daikon radish (grated), apple (grated), sweetcorn (raw also, like everything else), sugar snap peas in pods, freshly ground pumpkin seeds, black sesame seeds, red bell pepper.
Took different supplements from yesterday: limcomin and paramin, one capsule each.
I got a delivery from Oliveology.co.uk, who sell good quality Greek (cold-pressed) olive oil, stored in a stainless steel container. I didn't try the oil yet (will use very sparingly!) but tried a few Kalamata olives, which first tasted really nice and sweet, but later had a kind of a bitter after-taste. I paid approximately £12 for the oil (750ml) and £5 for the olives, plus £5 postage. I ate about 7 olives.
13.50pm: Just came back from shopping outside, and feel very tired again. Had to take a 45-minute power-nap on the sofa.
Yesterday I felt good soon after drinking the juice, which is extremely easy to digest.
Well, whatever it takes I will stick to the raw food challenge, and I hope that I will feel much better soon. There are definite benefits at the same time, though, i.e. better flexibility, quick weight loss (but this is obvious since I'm eating so little) and the nice feelings in my body and mind yesterday.
Ate about 8 organic prunes (from Tree Harvest) (may be not raw).
Slight headache, feeling worn out, face feels overheated and is red.
I got a bit stressed out in the late afternoon, and got my adrenaline going. My face went red again, and afterwards I felt very weak and worn out, with achy arms and legs, as well as slight headache and stiff slightly achy neck. I used to get this reaction at work, and I always got it more easily when I had been eating too much sugar, simple carbs or alcohol. I was hoping to feel stronger by now but either this raw diet is too sugary - or I am still suffering blood sugar imbalances from the carbs and sugar I ate before this diet over the holidays.
6pm: Smoothie: 1tbsp spirulina, one pink grapefruit, water. I made this to try and feel better, to balance my blood sugar with the protein in spirulina (Note: Spirulina has a very high protein-content.)
I'm taking a hot bath to try to relax myself and then I will use the blood electrification for an hour or so... It helped once against this feeling, which seems like low blood sugar, but may in fact have to do with parasites (e.g. bacteria in the blood) since those generally thrive on sugar too. In other words, high sugar-, dairy- and carb-content food may feed parasites, which may in turn make me feel very weak and not able to withstand stress, somehow.
19.20pm: Blood electrification starts (did it for 45 minutes).
The blood electrification made me feel much better. I will have to make this a key part of this raw food diet - incorporating it every day, since it seemed again to help me with my sugar intolerance problems.
I feel good now, there is just a little bit of tenseness around my head - like the beginnings of a headache. Not really tired anymore.
I drank three pints of water during and soon after the blood electrification.
10pm: Had a couple of handfuls of fresh blueberries.
Did a little yoga, Five Tibetan Rites, and the Spine Twist.
10.05pm: Angelica oil on the forehead and temples - it did make me a little sleepy after about half an hour or so but then I woke up again.
Note: I haven't felt cold today after the electricity treatment, but the house is warmer too.
I keep having a little cough with some phlegm coming up from my lungs.
Went to bed at about midnight, put angelica essential oil on my forehead which seemed to put me to sleep fairly quickly.
9th January 2015, Friday
Woke up late today, at 11am!
When I did sleep, however, I felt like I was sleeping quite deep. I didn't wake up to the cars around 5am like I usually do. So cutting out the supplements has possibly helped. I suspect the culprit is C-vitamin megadosing, but will wait for a couple more days before reintroducing B12, C-vitamin and iron one-by-one.
While lying awake, I was thinking about this raw food challenge and sugar. I thought 'since I'm getting restless feet, I must be eating too high sugar on this diet'. But later I remembered that I had quite a few dried prunes which I suspect were not raw, but heat-dried. And I seemed to get 'low blood sugar' -related symptoms after eating prunes. So perhaps it is true that any heat-treated or processed sugar will be a problem in terms of blood sugar, whereas raw, wholefood sugar sources won't, at least as easily.
In addition, I suspect that the blood sugar problems I have been having are strongly linked with parasites as well, since the blood electrification seems to help straight away.
Someone on Curezone also reported that he fixed 90% of his blood sugar problems with 'zapping' (I assume this meant the 'magnetic pulser'), which is a technology related to blood electrification and also part of the Bob Beck Protocol.
I saw an interesting video posted on Twitter, under #rawfood. It was: "Healing Hypoglycaemia and Blood Sugar Issues with 'DoubleDRaw'" and it can be viewed on YouTube, on the 'Its Detox Time' channel. In this video DoubleDRaw states that:
