Supporting Liver Health & Detoxification Pathways
I have a health condition called Cyclic Cushing's Disease, rarest of the rare disorders in the world. I am left with fatty liver and gallbladders disease. I am doing much better now, regularly detoxing and eating well. It is a slower and careful lifestyle which has brought me to a higher functioning level and feeling less 'toxic'. Nice to meet you all!CaringCounselor Survivor I take California Earth Minerals now, done many things in the past. www.CaliforniaEarthMinerals.com, a clay that the American Indians used in Shamanic Ceremony for detoxification! The website will explain more - NASA uses this with their astronauts, it also builds bones! You take out toxins and put back minerals, it has a negative ionic charge, AMAZING and I highly recommend it! I had more mental clarity, felt more energetic, and experienced a detox reaction the first few weeks, as I did high dosages. I used a couple of tablespoons a day per Donna Pessin's protocol www.UniqueHealing.com, not that I recommend her program but I like her advice regarding clay. However, if someone is 'sensitive' I recommend they bathe in the clay first and see how they do before they take any of the product ( only recommend the powder, don't feel the pills have same results, in my case). It can be powerful for those who are very sick and toxic, in the beginning. I can only tell you what I did, I am not a doctor. What works for one 'body' does not always work for another, this is only a suggestion3 years ago 1

Stimulating Phase 1 Liver Detox
I can empathise with that Tracy, knowing more than our doctors is a problem those like ourselves frequently find ourselves having to deal with! As you have found with your naturopath however, it is always good to have someone who can atg least be a sounding board and offer objective opinion on treatments we might be trying or thinking of trying. This is of course particularly important when it comes to safety and nutrient and herb interactions. Speaking as someone with a lot of experience of being ill who has also trained as a nutritional therapist I would say periodically stripping back to the bare minimum supplements is very sensible. It allows the body to find its own equilibrium and us to assess our current baseline health. Sorry, didn't connect the pyroluria and phosphatidylcholine - it just came to me as what seemed like a good alternative to silymarin. Unfortunately these contraindications are all too common for us also. I badly need methyl donors - particularly 5-MTHF (methylated folate) - according to SNP and other test results but my gut has other ideas, becoming irritated and inflammed when I take any. I think if I was seeing a definite benefit from something I was doing I would stick with that and not attempt to integrate other things that may act against it i.e. I would stick to the pyroluria protocol and leave the phosphatidylcholine, particularly as it hasn't helped you in the past. The pyroluria protocol and stimulating both detox pathways would be the way I would go (with nutrients and herbs with actions I was confident of obviously).Last replied by Maff on Tuesday, 14 August 2012
