Here are my health reasons for starting the Raw Milk Cure 2012. About 10 days ago I had an ovarian cyst that ruptured over my left ovary. It was not very big, but very painful. The last time this happened was about 6 years ago. I actually had surgery to go check things out and that is when I got the diagnosis. They tend to happen when I am stressed out~ which was the case about 2 weeks ago. For some reason I was more stressed than normal. On to the reason for the Milk Cure~ as a result of the rupture there is pain in my abdomen when digesting food. It should last for a few weeks. The pain has been pretty bad. It occurs about 20 minutes after I eat and can last for hours. I have to use a heating pad to make my colon stop spasming. It hurts to eat, so I thought what the heck… this is the perfect timing for a healthy milk fast. I am continuing to take my fermented cod liver oil~ but that is it raw milk and cod liver oil. Here are my results so far.
Day 1 : (February 29th)
-My mistake. I thought today was March 1st. By the time I realized it the day was half over.
– Take 6 ounces every 1-2 hours
– Woke up with milk stomach pain. I drank about 24 ounces of milk by noon. My stomach pain totally gone.
– Feel good. Occasionally tempted by food. The toughest part is to make good food, but not be able to eat it.
– Increased energy in afternoon which is unusual. I am normally most tired now.
-I had joint pain in my right knee that has disappeared. (Pain for last week)
– Mental Clarity. Noticed my emotions seemed more stable. I am usually a wreck with the boys screaming b/w 4-6pm.
– Best thing-NO ABDOMINAL PAIN in 10 days. I don’t know how people live with chronic pain. I never could.
– I feel great. No weakness or feeling dizzy – which I get during the day.
-Total milk for the day 2/3 a gallon. I am not feeling hungry at all.
– No bowel movement.
Day 2: (March 1st)
– Woke up a little hungry. I think I am going to start drinking more before bed. (12-18 ounces)
-Right after I drank my 12 ounces for breakfast I felt immediately better~ IMMEDIATELY
-Lots of energy in the morning.
-No abdominal pain.
-Great mental clarity.
-My blood sugar is not dropping like it normally does: no dizzy spells, no fatigue, no fuzzy feelings, no mood swings
-Not eating is still tough. I love food, but I am not craving it.
-Great energy in the afternoon/evening
-Lost 1 pound (not doing this for weight loss, just keeping track)
-Bowel Movement (solid, light brown) / no cramping or pain like the past week
– My hormones feel very balanced: which has not been the case since the ruptured cyst. I have been all over the place the last 10 days. I feel very centered and balanced hormonally and emotionally.
– Day 2 of being Pain Free-HOORAY.
Day 3 (March 2nd)
-I woke up feeling hungry. Drank 12 ounces of milk and felt better.
– Great energy throughout the day.
-Played with my boys ALL day.
– Noticed a little kidney pain (both sides) and ovary(left) pain~ not sure what, but would come and go. Hoping this is related to the cleanse.
– Good mental clarity again-I feel a lot more balanced than normal.
– Getting tired earlier in the evening and not using food to keep me awake. This is a good thing bc normally I stay up too late~ and can’t fall asleep. The opposite is happening.
-No PAIN for 3 days. That is worth it for now.
-No weight change today.
These are my observations so far. It has only been 3 days, so I am not looking for any huge changes. I love that I am feeling great and emotionally happy because I have done juice fasts before and under no circumstances could I do it with 2 small boys. Pain was the reason that I started and I am glad that things cleared up so quick. I am remaining on the Milk Cure long enough for permanent healing (hopefully)!! I will keep chugging for now.
