    Wow Shijin, I never read your full story before. So inspirational! And thank you for your service. I read many of your posts here and on MDA, but I didn't realize how much you've been through. Your progress is nothing short of amazing!

    Shijin, I just got to your "Ah ha moment" in the monster thread today and it is helping me so much! I, too, have some serious adrenal issues, so I'm thrilled beyond belief to know that you've successfully treated this (THRILLED!!! For both of us lol). Thanks so much for writing your story...this is so hope-inducing, I just cannot thank you enough for chronicling this (both here and your whole journey in the monster thread).

    So wait .... you're telling me that there's an option other than just "treat & live with" for bipolar, asthma, migraines, obesity, PTSD, PCOS, adrenal fatigue, hypothyroid, ... And there's a "cure" option, and it doesn't have to involve drugs?



    Think how many people you can bring hope to with this message!

    Hi Shijin, thanks for sharing your experiences now I know why I’ve not lost any weight since starting the LR 5 weeks ago.



    When I started the LR I thought I could cut my Armour and adrenal now I realize why I’m still the same weight. I'm going to increase again. The good thing is I’m not hungry at lunch.:cool:

    So yesterday I was cleaning out our downstairs closet - and I stumbled upon a bunch of suits and professional work clothes that I haven't worn since I was pregnant w/ Chaos. She turns 5 next month - I haven't worn these clothes in 6yrs. well with the exception of maybe 3 items I can fit into all my suits/skirts/pants! WHOOT.

    I have no idea what my weight is and I don't care! yes some things are a bit tight - but things are happening. am I finally transitioning to becoming a fat burner? am I finally at the right thyroid dose? are we getting the Pg dosing right? I have no idea - but in the past couple of weeks my tight work clothes that I could wear - began getting loose in the legs, and slowly in the waist/hips and now they're starting to get big on me. Win's a win.

    btw given all the dissent and angst with the exception of this most recent post - and any ask jack questions I have I think I'm just going to lurk, but though you all would like to hear this latest win. best of luck to everyone on their journeys

    awesome gretch........but do read what I just posted on the Titanic post.......it fits with what you just posted here. As pulse EMF rises in our resonant cavity the mass of everything on Earth will rise including non living things........proof that the laws of the universe are at play and not the diet.

    Will do Jack I'll check it out. Guess I've spent too long here in DC watching people argue over sh!t that doesn't matter in the long run. and I'm seeing that on the board too. -

    Polarization keeps people from understanding others & limits collaboration. be it the ass-clowns in dc - or those here on the board.

    What people are forgetting is that its up to each of us to figure out if Jack is right or wrong given our own individual situations. its not his job to tell us what to do with the whole EMF thing or anything else for that matter. Go ahead and question, but also go out and find other research, then decide what you're going to do. not all of us can walk Jack's path as that's his N=1. he's shined a flashlight on something that's big. How big is the question each of us have to ask and answer for ourselves. Jack can't answer it for us. Its a pretty damn big question to answer and figure out what's right for us individually. I've been on this path for a long time by myself and I've become pretty self reliant in how I function and how I figure things out.

    But here's the thing that everyone is missing - Jack is reaching out to each and every one of is b/c we're all pretty smart individuals - and asking us to see if we can figure out how to solve this problem, regardless if its big or small. yet I think most have missed this. He's asking us as a community to see if we can figure it out. as a species we've forgotten that it takes a village, a community to solve problems as a collective. It takes the far right, the far left, the centrest, it takes the spiritual, the atheist, the scientist, the skeptic, the joker, the fool, the mother, the father, the child, the extended family and the crazy. The reality is we don't know if Jack is right, and we won't know until it happens.

    If there's one thing I've re-learned from Jack its that everything is connected. when you start to pull the string, you find the web of life the great grandmother spider wove. discord creates disharmony on the web of life, and that disharmony effects everyone whether you realize it. regardless of what's coming, when we are in discord, we are not in alignment with what the creator designed us for. as a society and species we've forgotten the lessons of history, take a good look around you then go back and re-read your history books. you can see it everywhere, the threads are being pulled from opposite ends and the web is unraveling. the harbinger of change is upon us, the question is will we heed the call?

    Everything that's coming is possibly the best thing that may ever happen to us as a species, the question is will we survive the adversity as individuals or as a species?


    For Darleen - glad I could give you a glimpse into my little bit of crazy, and how I've been struggling to pull it all together...
     
  15. This happened to me about 5 mo ago where clothes I haven't worn since the Hashis hit, now fit great and maybe even a little big. It's a great feeling, right?

    Please don't stop posting you are so insightful and enjoyable to read. I hope I find that you cannot help yourself and want to share. Many have benefited from your journey and I'm sure many more to come will also benefit. But I totally understand and have felt a bit the same way. I have just decided to shield myself from the disention and move on to read the things that are important to me. I decide for myself what I believe and do what I can to mitigate the circumstances of mismatches in my world. I'm hanging in there!

    You really are a star fish Gretchen. Thanks for putting all that so clearly. I too have to stop reading some of this crap. I had nitemares all last nite about all of this. We are all so connected but we have to figure out our own journey and that is what jack has been telling us all along ....n=1

    Congrats on becoming less physically but much more in every other way!

    I was wondering how you balanced out your cortisol using adaptogens? Which did you try and for how long?

    How did you combat the pregnalone steal syndrome and how does it relate to cortisol?
