Multiple Sclerosis, Swank Day 3, And The Water Cure

Turns out the scale wasn't broken after all, I really was over 300 #'s. I think I would have rather bought a new scale! I was down to 297 this morning, I feel like I'm fading away. I want to get a vegan t-shirt and wear it down the mall, or to one of all those all you can eat places and just pig out on meat and watch everyone trying to figure it out, but that's just me. Had fried polenta, scrambled egg and 2 whites, and an English muffin this morning. Just had a tomato sammich, getting them while I can, the idiot garden is fading fast, a banana and a plum for lunch. Looks like chicken, cabbage and black beans and rice for dinner.

Had a new visitor today. Bridget is a fellow blogger who is in the middle of helping her husband both with the LDN therapy, and something called the water cure. I have read about it in the past, but have to admit I'd forgotten I had. Again, pretty strait forward. It works off of the premise that we are all severely dehydrated, and in some of us it manifests itself in decease. A very condensed version, and I mean very, is that you take your weight, divide by 2 and that's how many ounces of water you need to drink. So I need to drink 150 ounces, divided by 5 for the amount of times I drink, and there it is. 1 half hour before my 3 meals and 2 snacks I need to drink 32 ounces of water. Maybe I should leave the turbo toilet in the living room?

I talked to someone today, and my mother yesterday, and they both said go to the doctor and tell them you're a heroin addict! I know people do that, get the script, and then have it formulated with no fillers. They then dissolve the contents of the 50mg capsule in 50oz water. Each night you take a 3oz slug of the solution. I'm hoping it doesn't come to that, but life always finds a way. I'm looking for good low fat recipes, send em if you got em! I'm off to a badminton match, go Perry Hall!

Hey!
Just wanted to add the importance of taking sea salt with the water intake for the 'water cure.' It is about 1/4 teaspoon per every quart of water...this holds the water in your cells so that you body may use it, and so you are not just getting rid of it. Good luck with that too, that alone made Ed feel better!

Thanks, I condensed it too much, that is an important part. I am starting that tomorrow morning, here's hoping I don't drown!
