I began therapy on May 9th 2009.
Constant Queasiness, nausea, emotional swings. The nausea was worst for the first ten days. The first time I did a castor oil treatment I was sick for two days, very nauseous on day one, disoriented and incapacitated day two. To other Gerson Patients: I have learned to eat nothing but fruit and juices (no green juice) until after the castor oil enema, the first six hours of the day. This has much improved the situation.
A miraculous clearing of my mind. More energy than I’d had in years.
Week Eight to Twelve
The nausea never returned to the extent of the first six weeks. Lyme symptoms such as spinning and fatigue returned with a vengeance.
Weeks Twelve to Fourteen:
Increased energy and productivity. Later I read that it is common for Gerson patients to have a spurt of energy at this point and to decide to make up for lost time, to get things done they have been unable to do. Then they exhaust themselves and backslide. This is exactly what happened.
Weeks Fourteen to Nineteen:
September was a great black hole. Increased Lyme and Babesiosis symptoms. Sound sensitivity (brain inflammation, confusion, forgetting words, extreme fatigue. I also stopped my Bicillin shots around this time, and began basesiosis treatment. So who knows what’s going on. After four months vegetables had more taste, I adapted to an extent to the saltless diet. Charlotte Gerson says this takes two weeks, not for me.
Increased energy, enough to write this blog. You have to understand that sometimes I’m so sick that checking email is a daunting experience. So doing the blog is a good sign. Everything still looks trippy and spinny. The fatigue drags on. I’m extra achy, not just with the usual arthritis but the muscles as well. So far over five months I have thrown up the green juices three times.
