I stink, therefore I am…

with one comment

… with apologies to René Descartes.

I do stink, of garlic. I have begun a  month long course of homeopathic chelation capsules. Chelation, meaning ‘claw’ in Greek, is a chemical agent that binds to certain undesirable molecules in the body, usually heavy metals and escorts them out, mainly through the kidneys.

Ever since I found out that I have the dubious honor of having uranium and polonium in my system, I have been researching chelation. I have been for IV chelation before, but it is very aggressive and I only lasted for three sessions. Also, I had to go to Jo’burg to have it done, which is a major schlepp. So now I’m testing the oral version. The homeopath informed me to expect to smell of garlic, as that is added to the capsules to help combat the side-effects of the chelation, which unfortunately cannot distinguish between good minerals and bad ones, so it escorts the whole lot out. So one has to watch out for a mineral deficiency. For this purpose, there is also a micro-mineral and vitamin mix added in the capsule. And…drumroll please…the digestive enzyme serrapeptase, which I have been looking for for ages! Wanted to import the stuff, it was on my to-do list of things to try out. Now I have it right here in the chelating capsules. Bargain. 

I’m on day four, and yes, the garlic odour is quite strong. I said to Michael, “I don’t know if I can hold out on this for a month.”

 He answered, “More importantly, I don’t know if I can hold out for a month.”

Ha ha.

I’m mildly excited about the chelation. According to my homeopath, he had a Parkinson’s patient who did the chelation course, and went from not being able to walk and needing care, to driving around town and doing his shopping unaided and having his independance back.

Having said that, I’ve tried too many things to expect an instant cure. I am too seasoned a traveller on this road to have such naiveté. Still, I reckon it’s worth a definite try.

At the moment, I am feeling a bit tired which is to be expected. If the rest of the prophecy holds true, I can expect some serious energy next week. Can’t wait 😉
