When I started the TAFYH program the health concerns I wished to address were:
-belly fat...having had 4 c-sections
-allergies...seasonal and dust/food related since I was around 25 years old
-foggy brain and sluggishness
What I got out of TAFYH has addressed these concerns and far more.
My BSQ score was 63 with the highest scores of 10 for my Intestinal, Respiratory, and Glandular systems. Today my score is 14 and the score for those areas have decreased to 1, 2, and 3, respectively.
My weight was about 128 when I began TAFYH 8 weeks ago. Today it is 120!
The weight loss I experienced was gradual and not something I focussed on at all. I can feel my wrist bone so I know that the inflammation is down. I can hardly pinch my mid riff whereas before I could grab a couple of inches.
My temperature hovers around 36.4 and I now know what to do to raise it.
I used to feel congested in my sinuses and somewhat in my chest all the time. I would wheeze or experience a shortness of breath especially with certain foods/allergens like dust. That is virtually GONE! I also no longer have the afternoon slump I used to experience daily.
Some of the health crises I experienced over the course included severe headaches, odd moods of apathy, feeling blah, feeling intense sadness followed by several emotional releases ie. crying. I also had a bladder infection, and pain in my left foot. Donna advised me to ensure I was taking enough protein with each meal, adding additional oils to my diet, check my blood pressure as it could be on the low side and could cause the headaches. The bladder infection was connected to flushing out lectins. I attribute the headaches to a withdrawal of the grains and sugar in my previous diet. It lasted several weeks and is GONE now. I do not crave sugar the same way I used to and after I eat I feel way more satiated whereas before no matter what I ate I used to feel hungry and unsatisfied all the time. I also feel less guilty now to eat all the good foods I want and need. I feel I have a stronger connection with my body and can hear it tell me what I need.
One of my biggest success stories is having a root canal tooth extracted. In TAFYH we learned about sources of heavy metal toxins and their impact on our health. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing about the link between metal/mercury fillings and root canals to our health. As the Law of Nature would have it, a dead tooth in one’s mouth wants to decay and is constantly infested with microbes that are only doing their job, but the effect is a constant leaching of toxins into the body...like a wound that never heals. I immediately contacted a past TAFYH grad who had his root canal extracted and he shared with me how amazing he felt almost immediately after having his root canals removed. I contacted the UBC school of dentistry clinic right away and put in my request. On Monday I went in for a consultation and to my surprise the procedure was completed. From my x-rays the dentist could tell it was infected. When the tooth was extracted it was evident that there was infection as the tip of the tooth was covered in pink polyp like granules of tissue on the outside and there were grey streaks on the inside which is also infection. My mouth was sore but has completely healed without antibiotics. I used Nature’s Sunshine silver gel, silver and cat’s claw. I feel great this week. I don’t know what the full impact of this will have and I am so grateful I could have the procedure done so quickly. I don’t know what it will be like this Spring when the pollens are in full swing BUT I am thrilled at the possibility of being FREE of allergies. You cannot imagine what it’s been like for the last 20 years to suffer and not find an answer. So frustrating trying a bunch of different medications and remedies with no lasting results.
This education has been life changing. It comes down to being empowered to take care of one’s health and after this program I feel confident that I can do just that for myself and for my family.
The distinctions that really stand out for me are:
1. Understanding the Five pillars of health and when we address them we live disease free:
-inflammation, toxicity, injury, mental and emotional stress, nutritional deficiencies
2. We need to always be activating our lymphatic system
3. Raise our body temperatures back to 37 degrees
4. the interconnectedness of all our systems and the need to address them all.
5. How quickly the various body systems rebuild and regenerate, especially when they are not burdened with toxins, injury, stress, and inflammation
6. the incredible ability of the body to heal itself.
7. Lectins are poison to the body.
I loved the accountability structures in this program. Having to report each day on what i did and didn’t do definitely increased my commitment level. I didn’t want to let my team down. Thank you to my TAFYH team. Your courage and commitment inspired and supported me. Without you I never would have completed anything. I have never met any of you but I feel a deep love and respect for each of you and for all that you took on during this program. I am astounded that I did this program. I have four children aged 11, 10, 7, 3, morning can be so crazy and yet with the support of my husband and family, I was successful.
I found the lessons so informative, concise, complete, and well laid out as far as the applications. I’m a big fan of inspiring quotes so I really enjoyed all the uplifting quotes you include in each lesson. They capture so much impact in just a few words. And I enjoyed making a vision board. I haven’t shared my program with others as actively as I could have. I intend to share my results with everyone though and know it will have a great impact on everyone around me. I really focussed on my own learning, and my action for my own health, no one else’s.
Donna I feel like I can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done for my family. I also appreciated never made to feel wrong for being a vegetarian but instead empowered to make it work better for me. This program is life changing and will have lasting impacts on the health and happiness of my entire family. I also wish to acknowledge your care, commitment, compassion and passion for people taking action for their health. It is so bold and powerful! THANK YOU DONNA!
Future Health Plan:
I am thrilled that I now have access to my health. We intend to stick to eating the right foods and keeping the poisons out of our bodies. We will gradually make changes to our children’s diets as well.
One of our biggest goals is to raise our body temperature back to 37 and this may take a year but it can be done.
I have completed the kidney flush, liver cleanse, and bowel cleanse. I will be doing the gall bladder flush within the next 3 months and most likely a Candida cleanse also. Last night I muscle tested for what cleanses my body is asking for and I will be doing 3 more kidney flushes and 3 more bowel cleanses.
In addition to eating the right foods, I will continue with the heavy metal detox, flaxseed oil, colostrums, and protease. I daily take cat’s claw, probiotic 11, flax lignans, chi tonic, chlorophyll water and green zone.
I will make a plan to have the rest of the metal fillings removed from my mouth. This may take a few years to complete and I would like it done within a year.
