L1T: Leah’s 1 Thing – Spring

Spring is a good thing, right?

Hi! As many of you know I published a newsletter for a few years. I have decided to change the format a bit, to better communicate with you. I am pleased to introduce “Leah’s 1 Thing” to you. This will be a weekly (mostly) communication with you about what’s going on. I am very excited to be bringing you interesting information you can use!

The pros and cons of spring Spring L1T: Leah’s 1 Thing - Spring Leahs 1 thing

I recently received a phone call from one of my “graduates,” someone who is well on their way to recovery, or who has recovered. “Linda” has recovered from fibromyalgia and most of the coexisting conditions for over a year now. She even sent me a note recently about how she had been out dancing for the first time in ten years. She said the look on her husband’s face was priceless.

Linda confided to me that she wasn’t feeling as well as she had the last month. After doing some detective work of going over her food, sleep, supplements, current stressors, etc., we concluded that it was probably Spring causing the slight downturn.

For many in the Northern Hemisphere, the return of Spring can help begin an upward spiral of feeling better and better. The increase in sunlight and outdoor activities are like a tonic to the body and soul. However, due to plant and animal life reactivating, there are new conditions in the environment. This is part of what causes seasonal allergies, and can also cause a downturn in some peoples’ health.

Further, the body goes through daily, monthly and seasonal cycles of clearing. As an example, if a person wakes at 3 am consistently, it can often be an indication of liver dysfunction. That is because the liver cleanses itself during the hours of 2-4am. At the change of the seasons, our bodies change too. We are part of our environment and our environment is part of us.

Linda initially recovered using the Freedom from Fibromyalgia Method as described in my book, Freedom from Fibromyalgia: 7 Steps to Complete Recovery. She did what is known in the book as The Healing Cleanse, a combination of a therapeutic-grade probiotic and the detoxification mineral zeolite. She used these supplements at the detoxification amount for several months. (The detoxification amount is generally three times the maintenance amount.) Linda was doing the normal maintenance amount of The Healing Cleanse for the last six months or so, and it seemed fine. In the past month, she felt a worsening of symptoms, even though she had not changed her food and supplements, but she noted her stress was a little higher.

The wonderful thing about these supplements is that you can customize the amount for the way you feel. People ask me all the time how long they have to be on The Healing Cleanse. My standard answer is as long as you are seeing beneficial results month over month. In my own personal case, I did the detoxification amount for a good month and then stayed on a higher maintenance amount of two times the normal maintenance amount, for a couple of years. I continue to stay at a maintenance amount now, because of the toxins in our environment we are continually exposed to.

After this discussion, Linda decided that she should go back to the detox amount (three times the normal maintenance amount) for the next week or so, to see if she gets out of this funk. After just one day of doing this, she had already started to feel better! That’s powerful!

My husband suffered from seasonal allergies for years. It was so bad, that he had to take a prescription medication – the only prescription med he ever took on a regular basis. I started “dosing” his morning coffee with zeolites and another supplement that has helped me, an immune system booster made from the medicinal mushroom agaricus blazei, Agaricus Gold. Now he rarely even has seasonal allergies – and if he does, he just takes an OTC med, maybe once or twice the entire season.

In my own case, Agaricus Gold turbo-charged my recovery efforts. It removed the constant sore throat I had, and my lymph nodes under my jaw were no longer perpetually swollen. (These are classic symptoms of Chronic Fatigue!) Agaricus Gold is a must-have product in our home during the winter to ward off colds and in the spring to help prevent seasonal allergy symptoms.
