I was a competitive tri-athlete in 1989. Fortunately, I had a job that allowed me time to train pretty seriously. Serious training for triathalons means practicing the three principles involved. Running, swimming, and bicycling.
One day during a training ride I had a cycling accident which threw me about 20 feet in the air and landed on my left arm. At that time I didn’t realize I had fractured my forearm.
During this time I was still teaching martial arts. Whenever my left arm got hit and it would go dead. That’s when I found out I had bone chips in my elbow. I had surgery to remove 3 chips about ¼ size of a dime.
This is how I contacted my CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). Apparently my immune system was beaten up from all the training and the anesthesia/antibiotics during surgery triggered the CFS.
If anyone reading this still has CFS from that time, you’d probably remember it was first called Epstein-Barr Disease (the Yuppie disease).
It was also suggested that CFS was a yeast infection of the blood system.
It didn’t matter to me what was the cause, I only wanted a cure. Anyone familiar with CFS will know about the mood swings, depression, suicidal thoughts, anger, weight bloating, etc. I had bloated up to 174 lbs. My in shape weight is 154 lbs. and always ripped. I was pudgy despite eating only salads. CFS throws your whole body into chaos!
Fortunately, my chiropractor was familiar with CFS at that time and turned me onto an acupuncturist who treated CFS patients. The acupuncture treatment was similar to allergy testing, I would be injected with herbs and needles. This was only one part of my treatment.
The treatment that worked for me was coffee enemas. In those days they were not as familiar as today. I don’t know where the coffee enema originated, but I know coffee is an herb.
We now utilize herbs in various ways for healing and health.
At first I thought it was crazy and I mentally resisted. I started my coffee enemas and 2 weeks later had my CFS under total control, and almost gone.
My CFS regiment consisted of the coffee enema, and low carbohydrate diet.
I dropped 20 lbs in 10 days and was ripped again. I cut back my workout routine to yoga everyday, and a 3 mile jog.
If you have CFS and haven’t been able to beat it, you should consider the coffee enema and diet regiment.
For me the coffee enema proved the most effective detoxification. I still do a coffee enema every 2 months to keep my liver, kidneys, and intestines putrid free.
