Diet and How I Eat Now
For two and a half years I was under the (remote) care of Dr. Larry Wilson and his colleague Dr. Larry McHaney. I found Dr. Wilson online and I was very impressed with what he's written. I followed the program stringently - the near infrared saunas, the coffee enemas, the supplements, the diet. What would have helped a lot in addition to these is the meditation exercise, but I only dabbled in that.
For the first 6 or so months I was so tired. Just dragging. But I knew that that was a necessary healing crisis. I didn't think it could go on for so long, but Dr. Wilson assured me it could go on for much longer than that. Soon after I found I had more energy, and I absolutely loved how the saunas made me feel. I'm all about heat anyway, having had cold hands and feet for as long as I can remember.
I wanted to share some of my diary about the diet from that period. This is still basically the diet that I follow. Thankfully I don't crave sugar anymore. Not even ice cream - and I used to eat a pint a night in my 20's. But that's not to say I don't have a gluten-free home-baked not-too-sweet oatmeal raisin cookie once in a while.
Just had my phone session with Dr. McHaney. Here's what he reiterated about the diet:
hi quality proteins and organically grown fats and oils. and lots of veggies. steamed 2x/day.
root veg - turnips parsnips carrots
cabbage bok choi dark greens etc
no nightshades, very yin
1 tbsp fat/oil every meal. The less cooked fats and oils the better.
almond butter on rice cake. Handful of almond pecan walnuts. Turkey, chicken skin.
fats provide sustained energy for fast oxidizer.
protein each meal. Don't worry that harry has lots of meat. 2-3 x/day.
no tuna, shellfish.
no fruit or fruit juices.
quinoa rice corn millet amaranth buckwheat, blue corn chips and tortillas (hi in selenium and our soils are deficient in them).
grains don't give long lasting energy.
BEST protein for us is animal protein
sardines and salmon, chicken lamb turkey eggs
