Coming Home

I can’t believe that I have been home for 2 1/2 half weeks and haven’t posted an entry on this blog.  Well, needless to say, it has been a very busy time getting settled into the routine.  Before I left town to go to the clinic, I had hired 4 women to work part time Monday-Friday between the hours of 9AM-6PM.  This was one of the smartest things I did.  The transition went so much smoother with helpers to make the juices, coffee for enemas, and soup etc.  Two of them also clean my home every other week.  This allows me to use my energy, what little I have, for healing.  This is very important when following Dr. Gerson’s protocol.  It can be tempting to do too much.

The first few days were filled with purchasing items that I realized would make things run smoother.  For instance I found an electric kettle ($20 at Costco) to heat water in my bathroom where I would be doing the enemas.  This saved me trips up and down the stairs with thermos’ of hot water.  I realize I haven’t mentioned enemas before and I will definitely be discussing them in greater detail in another post. 

I also purchased two 1 quart saucepans to add to my collection since I am heating and reheating vegetables for lunch and dinner.   I also got gloves for the workers since their hands turn orange after cleaning so many carrots for juicing.  I got a new digital timer so I could know when my 12 minutes were up for holding the coffee enema.  My favorite find were the pill boxes to hold all the nutritional supplements that I take throughout the day.  I bought two by EZY-DOSE with push buttons.  It is very sleek and compact.  I found them at Target for $10 each.  Since they are labeled with the days of the week one of my helpers, Gretchen T., made some new labels to fit my needs.

I love being organized!

    I am so glad you are home with your family. I never heard how it went with Nicole there to learn to help you out. Did I miss an episode? The biggest thing is how are you on the healing side of things?

    Bet your family is very glad to have you back with them. Positive thoughts…

    Hi Cathy Im so happy to hear you are home. Just one thing of interest, you say that you reheat vegetables, thought that wasn’t allowed on the protocol.
    The energy will come back, but the body needs to detox & start to work again.
    Positive thoughts go to you for your recovery
