Still Fighting

Since being told by the specialist that your father has just a few months to live it hs been a hard couple of weeks, but mum and I have kept being positive and have really spent each day devoted to ensuring dad gets the best possible foods allowed via the Budwig protocol.

Until about 4 days ago it felt as though we were loosing the battle, dad was just lying down sleeping all day and in pain while taking the pain relieving tablets.

The last 4 days has seen a distinct change, in fact as I write this he isĀ  cutting the lawn, yesterday he went for a walk to the shops and has reduced the pain killers to 2 per day from 1 every 4 hrs.

I am not sure as of yet why there has been an improvement, it may be because the diet has been going just under 2 months and maybe the body is now seeing a benefit or it could be the coffee enema, which we started 4 days ago!

We are also getting into a little rhythm and getting a little better at this now, with the breakfast working better I think by changing to mango fruit and with the cream being a little more liquid making it more easily digestible.

On top of this I now make a concoction of fresh fruit and vegetables at around 11am after the enema which consists of 1 apple 1 whole broccoli, 1 yellow kiwi, 1 carrot and some times a beetroot which he hates. This is all juiced and then I add the frozen wheat grass. Not too bad a taste but crammed full of nutrients.

For lunch is a little tough as he likes his bread and cheese sandwich, here we add freshly cut lettuce or tomatoes, I have now included some fruit after this.

The evening meal is a struggle, I was doing salads but recently it have been vegetables steamed plus a potato, as this seems to be a little more filling.

One major difference is that we started having a fruit cocktail for afters, but I realised we needed to get the flaxseed oil intake up from 3 to 6 table spoons and we have achieved this by making a smoothie with the fruit and the linseed oil cottage cheese combination.

NB I have also started to include garlic whenever possible.
