Why I Follow the Medical Medium Way of Eating
For the past 8 months I have been following the Medical Medium way of eating. I had bought a few of his books, like his thyroid healing book, but never read it because my thyroid test results came into range and have stayed that way for a few years now. So I sold his books because I knew he believed that viruses were the root cause of a lot of diseases, especially Epstein Barr Virus, and I had had this and test results showed it; I felt powerless at the thought that a virus had so much power over my health.
Then after starting therapy using Logosynthesis with Anni Reynolds, (I’ll write an article soon about this), she casually asked me if I knew about the Medical Medium way of eating and I dismissed it, saying yes, I wasn’t really interested in it.
Keto Didn’t Work for Me
Then I happened upon some information that brought his way of eating back on my radar, I learned that cutting out carbs, which I had done by eating the Wheat Belly way, then eating Paleo and Keto, can cause thyroid issues. I then came across other people who had said they too had ended up with health issues cutting out carbs. (In my recovery from hyperthyroidism I ate anything I wanted, including lots of cake and biscuits, because it was hard enough to eat as it was as I had no appetite).
So I read the Medical Medium’s first book, which was an overview of his way of eating, and listened to most of his podcasts and looked at his website. And I came to understand that you could slowly work on eliminating the viruses from your body, and that certain foods were healing.
I had felt discouraged about food and its healing power, because I considered I was already eating healthy and it did nothing but make me sicker. I soon came to realise that cutting out certain food groups was the problem.
I started juicing celery immediately, working out that half a bunch of celery in the morning was my sweet spot, where I didn’t detox too fast and my body could handle it.
The Medical Medium is about to release a book about celery juicing.
Within a week most of my digestive symptoms were gone, namely bloating and acid reflux. I have celery juice most mornings, in the early days I used to miss the odd day because I felt I needed a break, now I don’t have such strong detox symptoms.
It also took me a while to get my head around his Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie which I try to have most days. One of the ingredients is Dulse and I make it into capsules and have it that way, as having it in the smoothie made me feel quite nauseous when I had it in the smoothie. You can have all the ingredients separately, as long as you have them all within a 24 hour period.
He’s big on eating Fruit. We have really been brainwashed to believe that Fruit is bad, and having more fruit in my diet has really helped with sugar cravings. There’s a feeling of satiation that I get eating this way, that I never had following any other protocol.
In the last half a week I have decided to go Vegetarian. I eat about 90% vegetarian anyway and I’m feeling less and less like eating meat and chicken and realised by not committing to it, I was not able to look into other foods that might make me feel fuller, coming up to Winter. Things like vegan hamburger patties, creating meals that are heavier.
His new book about how to help your Liver is very indepth, and has a 369 protocol for detoxing. I haven’t tried it yet because some of the ingredients are seasonal, like asparagus. So I’ll wait until later in the year.
He has everything you need to know on his website, the best supplements to take, recipes, videos of recipes, blog posts, podcasts, and facebook groups are very helpful for asking questions of fellow Medical Medium followers.
I definitely feel clearer headed and have less pain in my body eating this way.
