One Year Ago Today...

Hey everyone!

Bet you never guessed I'd be back so soon, eh? Well, today marks the one year anniversary of two major events for me. Let's start on the positive note, shall we?

On this date last year I was launching my new website, Carmella's Sunny Raw Kitchen; the beautiful co-creation of yours truly and my wonderful web designer Botond Imre of SyteDesign. It felt like the next logical step on my raw path, you know, to finally have a place all on my own to feature the recipes, food pics and videos I have shared over the years, and of course, eventually move all of my blog posts over from Blogger. Ironically, what I didn't know at the time was that my raw 'career' was in fact just on the cusp of being over or, at least, put semi-permanently on hold. (God sure has a tremendous sense of humor! lol)

On December 1st 2012 I also did the infamous second Liver-Gallbladder Cleanse which was to seal the fate of my health taking a serious turn for the worse. We probably won't ever know for sure what caused the balance of my gut flora to tip over but this 'Flush' seems to have been the 'coup de grace', leaving my intestines severely irritated and inflamed. I also suspect that the well water I was drinking and gave myself several enemas with at the time was contaminated, causing bacterial and most likely parasitic infections which my already weakened system (I had done the first Cleanse 3 weeks prior) wasn't able to fight back.

Not much cause for celebration, you'll say... The thought of this health saga having lasted so long leaves me with a sense of sobriety and a certain sadness. But when I told Don yesterday about this one year marker something magical and liberating happened; I unexpectedly opened the door and let fun and lightness walk in. I was hit with the silly idea to commemorate this past year of health struggle and experimentation with so many natural protocols (some quite challenging and down right unpleasant) on a playful note, concentrating all the most difficult aspects together.

First I'd start the day off with drinking a couple of tablespoons of castor oil, followed by a nice big glass of water with a hefty dosage of Epsom salt.

Next will come one or two Elemental Shakes with different medicinal flower extracts, for a little variety.

When hunger hits again I'll treat myself to a steaming bowl of chicken broth with carrots a-la-SCD style followed with white rice congee. But wait! First I'll begin the meal with the yummy combo of Black Walnut Hull tincture, Wormwood tincture (so much tastier than the capsules!) and cloves that make up Hulda Clark's Parasite Cleanse.

And, let's see, what am I forgetting? Oh right! 25 drops of 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide in a glass of water. What better way to begin and end the day?

What do you say? Anybody game to join me?

Seriously, it's been so bad that the only (sane) thing left to do, really, is laugh! ;-) I mean, a 'raw chef' that can hardly eat anything in its raw form except a handful of fruits and only in moderation, how hilarious is that?

Don't you worry, I'm only just kidding and won't put myself through such a terrible ordeal! No, I'll just settle for Don's genius suggestion: how about we all give ourselves an enema at the exact same time? he he

OK, OK. Enough silly-ness! I promise to spend today in quiet contemplation, while also enjoying the few (but ever expanding) foods that I can now eat. I'll probably begin with a blended mixture of coconut yogurt, half a banana, flax oil, lemon juice and l-glutamine served on top of water kefir grains. Then sip on a delicious smoothie consisting of banana, blueberries, a few mango chunks and a handful of spinach. Fresh cucumber juice and a poached egg on a piece of gluten free toast or English muffin* with homemade mayo for lunch. And dinner will be Cream of Broccoli Soup followed by a baked potato topped with homemade vegan butter, sauteed mushrooms and green onions, and vegan soy-free cheese. Oh and a couple of gluten free cookies (made with stevia) with a glass of almond milk for dessert. Doesn't sound too bad, does it? But I'm afraid I won't yet be able to ditch the morning and evening doses of Hydrogen Peroxide. (Yuck!) But a girl's gonna do what she's gotta do, right?

* Some of you have asked me about the gluten free breads I've been making. I'm still experimenting and learning the ropes of GF baking but so far some of my favorites include Kim’s Gluten Free Dairy Free Whole Grain Bread, Gluten-Free Bread – That Tastes Like Wheat!, and virtually every single recipe I've tried from Bette Hagman's excellent The Gluten Free Gourmet Bakes Bread, already a 'go to' reference for me.


Here's a brief review of the year in photos...

Giving myself an enema after the second Liver Flush, with Puss' support. ;-)


Soaking my booboos away at Miracle Hotsprings as we headed south, early December 2012


Giving what would turned out to be my last raw demo for quite a while, St-George, Utah, December 2012


Juice fasting in Arizona, early February 2013. That was actually a really bad idea; not only did it irritate my gut big time but I also lost lots of weight.


Hiking in beautiful Sedona, February 2013


My first health video update, 17 February 2013. I was at my lowest weight: 85 lbs. I know, pretty scary, eh?



23 Feb 2013 - I had just started Jini Patel Thompson's Elemental Diet, drinking nothing but (not very nice tasting) shakes, something I was able to keep up (miraculously!) for 7 weeks.


March 2013 during my wheatgrass phase


April 2013 - While we were making our way back to Canada. I pretty much lived only on white rice congee /porridge and sweet potato for weeks while gradually weaning off Elemental Shakes.


Now fast forward to July (nothing much different until then) when I just started the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.


A couple of weeks later after housesitting for some friends in the company of their lovely woofies.


I actually lost a lot of the weight I had regained while on the SCD diet. You can really see it in this next pic taken in August. I went down to about 95 lbs, which I kept for most of the 2 1/2 months I stayed on SCD.


November 2013 - Back on carbs and fattening up! Last I stepped on the scale I was 109 lbs! Woo hoo! After almost an entire year weighing under 100 lbs, I promised myself that I would never again complain and worry about being overweight. 'Skinny' no longer necessarily equates with 'healthy' in my mind.


Now look at that belly! ;-)


If you are fortunate enough to be able to enjoy some raw creations today (or even a carrot stick or two), will you have some for me?  ;-)

Carmella's Health Video Update - Part IX

I know, I know... I haven't made a peep in months!

I wasn't purposefully ignoring you guys; it just felt like all I'd have to share was old news, you know, of the not-that-much-improvement variety. There came a point when I got sooooo tired of talking about my health that I avoided being around people altogether, since the first thing that invariably pops up is always "How are you?" Sure, I suppose I could have lied, but that's not really who I am.

Anyhoo, at long last things seem to be looking up. Over the months (it's actually going to be one year in a couple of weeks!), I've learned not to get excited at the first sign of wellness, as pain would always raise its ugly head again a few days later. I now take it one day at a time. If I have minimal pain that day, 'Great!' but I keep reminding myself that that can change. Conversely, it also helps to minimize the drama and emotional response when the pain is more prominent.

Having said that, it has been something like 4 weeks since my last major 'flare'. (Knocking on wood.) It feels that at last my gut is slowly getting stronger and can tolerate an ever increasing amount of new foods. I continue to be careful and to not get ahead of myself by introducing too many items at once, so that I can keep track of my body's response. So far, so good. I can sense that there's still a long way to go before I can eat veggies in their raw state but I count my blessings; right now I can enjoy several kinds of raw fruits, a small amount of citrus juice, cooked tomato, quinoa, and even blanched almond butter! (Woo hoo!)

What a learning this whole experience has been thus far! It's teaching me about patience and acceptance, about going beyond any fixated ideas and self-imposed limitations, and above all, about the fact that, really, I know nothing. I've finally realized that I can't simply figure this whole thing out and heal myself alone. I've done everything I possibly can, the time has come to surrender the process over to God, The-Energy-Behind-All-Things, to The Mystery...

But 'nuff typing, I'll tell you more about what's been going on this last little while in this next video.
