Jini and I decided to post this email from a reader, as it is a great example of taking back control of your health and propelling your healing journey forward.
S.G. decided she wanted to take her life back, and she utilized Jini’s healing guides, books and protocols to empower herself with the knowledge and strength needed to face her diseases:
“Thank you for the follow up. I found the Listen to Your Gut book to be incredibly comprehensive. A little over 15 years ago, I started my journey of recovery. I would have terrible stomach cramps and diarrhea, then swing to nausea. I found the medical community completely unhelpful. My hubbie and I worked together through trial and error to create a maintenance diet that, with minor tweaks, sustained me up until perimenopause. Over the years, any new food added was removed if it launched a gas attack or diarrhea.
I cruised along until about 48 or so, and then my guts really started talking to me again – burning, gas – it was horrible. A stressful work environment pushed my balance over the edge, and I was introduced to an amazing acupuncturist who helped me heal. I have continued to see her once a month since that time. I also became even more aware of new food sensitivities and found the Auto-immune Paleo food list very helpful in guiding me.
I turned 52 in December and noticed a further slow down in gut motility, probably because of the hormonal change. In March 2019, I began to have some sciatic pain that I could not dissipate with my targeted stretching. In addition to my gut condition, I also suffer from a Grade 3 Spondy which leaves my low back unstable. Targeted stretching can usually realign things and relieve the pain, but this time it didn’t. When I went to the acupuncturist, she let me know that the pain was gut related and not Spondy related. The internal swelling had taken my body weight up about 3 pounds, which placed internal swelling against the damaged joint. I couldn’t burp or pass gas. The intestinal track had shut down and was septic. This is when I began trying to figure out my next steps in the process of healing.
I found the Listen to you Gut website and poured over the information to devise a recovery/care plan. The 7 steps of recovery made so much sense to me. I was in such an acute state that I ordered the Wild Oregano Oil and Natren Probiotics before the book actually arrived. I also ordered the e-book with just the Wild Oregano protocols so I could get moving with recovery while I waited for the comprehensive book to arrive. Within the first week on the Wild Oregano oil/probiotics I passed the first impaction, but was still very uncomfortable.
A week later I passed the second impaction, which I could feel was much higher up in the colon. I have maintained a very low acid diet through the process, needing to eat something every couple of hours to keep the intestinal track moving using bone broth, yogurt and coconut oil as mainstays.
As of today, I am still in the process of healing and will maintain my strict diet for another couple of months. My diet includes bone broth, raw milk, yogurt, eggs, a little oat flour, raw honey, boiled chicken, Larabar, spinach, carrots, zucchini and butternut squash. Currently I am still using 5 drops of Wild Oregano oil in a half teaspoon of extra virgin coconut oil in the a.m. on an empty stomach and
