I’M TOO STRONG

When I’m lying in bed in the morning, my thighs are all oozey, behind my knees and elbows all sweaty, my forehead stings because I’ve been scratching it all night. I know I need to get up and start the day, I need to exercise because that is what will heal me, I need to […]

Oil pulling to start the day

One thing that’s been interesting about this TSW journey is so much of my research into health and wellness is coming back to pay dividends. I see TSW mostly as a fight against ourselves. We need to challenge ourselves to be as healthy as possible so that we can beat the TSW. If we can […]

Day 28: 4 week update

This week my skin has healed quite a bit more so I focused a lot more on exercise. For NMT people seem to focus on the water restriction and bathing restriction, but I think the more important part of the protocol is actually diet and exercise. Tokuko actually wrote in her blog that the 3 […]

Day 25: Flaring again

So my body has come around to its second flare. I wasn’t alarmed as I was expecting it, after reading all the accounts in the Facebook groups. However that didn’t stop me from groaning about it most of the day. The thing about the flares is they hurt. I’m not worried as much about how […]

Day 22: More Protein!

One thing I know for sure, the skin needs protein and fats to generate new skin. There are some things out of control with this TSW thing, but many things are also within our control and diet is one of them. Whenever the body is ready to create new skin, I’m going to make sure […]

Day 21: Photos

Some progress. Side and back look good, front more or less the same, forehead looks like it went backwards a little. Been disrespecting the water intake limit pretty heavily so that might have something to do with it. Also been scratching my forehead a lot. Another week down. Many more to go. Bring it on.

Day 20: Disrespecting the water limit and paying for it

For the last three days, I’ve totally disrespected the 1,000ml water limit. I just LOVE eating too much and I love eating healthy foods, so I’ve been piling down fruits and home-made smoothies. My favourite one is pineapple, coconut and lime. I can drink 1,000ml of just that!! Hah. So looking at my food journal, […]

Organ meats are the TSW killer!

During this healing journey I have been eating meats, and particularly organ meats, every single day. Why? First of all, diet is a key factor in abiding by Dr Sato’s water intake limit. To be honest I’ve been disrespecting that limit every day (mostly because I don’t fully agree with it, I’ll write about why […]

For NMT to work, we need to treat the body holistically

So I’m two and a half weeks in and progress has been good. While most people tend to get much worse before they get better, it seems I went through the initial TSW redness/hives stage for a week, and things have only constantly improved since then. Having dealt with many health issues my whole life […]

Day 16: Making bone broth!

Why is bone broth awesome? Well, it contains everything we need to produce strong skin, nails and bones. Lots of proteins and fats, it’s basically the closest we can get to eating bones, other than making actual bonemeal. Making bone broth is actually very easy and much better than store bought broths. All you need […]
