In 1990, I was smitten with the horrific and debilitating illness Interstitial Cystitis. The increasing agony of this incurable disease of the bladder may be well known to many of you reading my story. As the condition worsened, I could not go anywhere unless I was sure there was a toilet nearby.
I constantly wanted to pass water! And when I did, only a few drops would pass, causing the most painful burning sensation!
In 2004, it was all over! I was completely free of the disease and all pain! I had found my Remedy for IC, my Interstitial Cystitis Cure! Though my journey took 14 years, I now know enough to dramatically shorten the process.
And, I am thrilled to say, this process doesn't only apply to Interstitial Cystitis, but to many other
So-Called Incurable Diseases as well!
AN AMAZING TRUE
IC SUCCESS STORY
How I beat the odds and healed myself
of an incurable disease!
Four years after my healing, early in 2008, I decided to write my story to help out all the many, many people, men as well as women, suffering from the same condition as myself. When the book was completed (a year's work!!), I thought of calling it 'How I healed myself of an Incurable Disease'. But then I thought, 'No, I need to be stronger and more encouraging to the reader', so I called it:
YOU CAN HEAL YOUR SELF I DID!
So for those of you who just want to cut to the chase, get the book and get better, here's the link
I know what's it's like to be searching and searching for a cure, trying this and that - mainstream medicine, alternative healing, and so on - and not getting any better. And I know what it's like to be in pain!
But it doesn't have to be that way!!
It all started...
in 1990. I had heard about eating fruit as a means of losing weight, gaining more energy, becoming fitter. And, basically, I overdid it! I ate too much fruit!! So what I want to say here is very important...
Before you make any major changes in diet (in fact in anything!)
"I have begun reading your book and can't put it down - it makes terrific reading. There are so many of your symptoms which are the very same as mine, except yours were so severe that I'm not sure I could have suffered so much. You are a beacon of hope to all fellow sufferers and I take my hat off to you... You are the bravest and most courageous person I have ever had the good fortune to know."
"I really did enjoy it, most especially your moving account of your own illness and subsequent healing. I must say, it held me riveted all the way through that section. The day to day living menus are fantastic. I love the whole presentation of the book - a wonderful addition to one's library."
How do you know you have Interstitial Cystitis?
In my book I explain how I embarked on a journey of self-healing, after years of trying out all kinds of suggestions and therapies. Nothing worked!
I didn't even know what exactly was wrong with me. As you may know, Interstitial Cystitis is very difficult to diagnose. You have bladder pain. When you pass water (which you have to do frequently!), only a dribble comes out - but does it hurt!! Like passing molten lava! The CONFUSION adds to your suffering. What's wrong with me?
What's the difference between 'ordinary' Cystitis and Interstitial Cystitis?
'Ordinary' Cystitis is fixable by drinking lots of water, cranberry juice or taking some herbal/medical remedies. K-B Formula, which I have available on my Products page, is very good at helping clear it up. It goes away after a few days. The patient then has to be careful to avoid contracting bacterial infection. Be very hygienic and keep the lower part of the body warm.
With Interstitial Cystitis, the above methods only work temporarily, slightly or not at all! In other words, it doesn't go away!
That's how you know you have it.
IT'S ALL ABOUT ACID
After I contracted the affliction of IC, also called Painful Bladder Syndrome, Irritable Bladder Syndrome, Bladder Pain Syndrome or Hypersensitive Bladder Syndrome, some smart doctors told me that my overeating of fruit hadn't actually caused the problem. The sugar (turning to acid in my body) had merely pushed my already over-acidic condition over the edge. In time, I would have gotten IC anyway...
My pre all-fruit diet, for my particular body make-up, wasn't great. I was combining all kinds of foods that ended up as acid. Whereas bacterial infection causes 'normal' Cystitis, the burning condition of IC is caused by acid.
And I was a walking acid bath!
Too much Acid = ILLNESS
It's fairly common knowledge that the body needs a delicate Acid/Alkaline balance in order to function properly. Although some people may be over-alkaline, most illnesses are caused by a condition called Acidosis - too much acid.
That's why I wrote my book, not just as a way of overcoming Interstitial Cystitis, and related bladder disorders, but also as a way of treating any disease - at least as a very good starting point.
The Root Cause of many diseases is Acidosis!
Too Much Sugar increases acid in the body.
Solution - make the body More Alkaline.
People who eat lots of uncooked food (Raw or 'Living' food) do so because the enzymes needed to digest the food are there in the raw food. For example, it's easy to digest an apple because your body doesn't have to supply any digestive enzymes to process it. However, if you cook the apple, your body doesn't exactly know what it is. The cooking (anywhere over 115° Fahrenheit) has destroyed the apple's digestive enzymes. So now your body has to analyse the cooked apple and create the proper enzymes for digesting it.
Years of eating cooked food leaves the body depleted of its natural supply of digestive enzymes.
Continuing to eat food in this way forces the body to access the metabolic enzymes that are employed by important organs such as kidneys, liver, pancreas, heart, etc.
(You can see where this is going, can't you?)
Now it's becoming more difficult for the body to digest food (in fact to generally function optimally).
Some food is now left in the gut NOT FULLY DIGESTED. And this rots and turns into... ACID!
One of the most important lessons I learned, and a major TURNING POINT in my healing, was eating Digestive Enzymes. I ate loads of them!
Even when I was eating a mostly Raw and Alkaline Diet, I was still taking Digestive Enzymes.
They worked wonders!!
WHAT'S IN THE BOOK?
Introduction by Seamus Byrne
(International retreat facilitator and composer of music for healing)
I have known Gabrielle Kirby for over 30 years and this book is a real testament to her spirit. In one way very relaxed and easy-going, in another way full of enthusiasm, she encapsulates in herself a spirit that is 'tuned in' - a refreshing mix of health and spirituality consciousness.
When I first saw her cut down by Interstitial Cystitis, it was a sad occasion. Unable even to walk, she would simply stand by a wall, tentatively leaning on a heater, her head bowed. To see such a free, lively spirit reduced to silence and immobility was, for me, very challenging
I remember the moment when the 'light went on', when hope sparkled again in her eyes. She had been looking into the history and concept of alternative medicine, in particular fasting, as a cure for disease. The possibility became a reality in her mind because she had reached a point where she could 'take no more'. She would find a solution! I, and others, were caught in the whirlwind of it, of the challenge to overcome the many, many obstacles that stood squarely in the path of her healing journey.
A healing journey is a strange thing. A person contracts a 'condition' and decides to seek healing. But the events of the journey not only heal the condition, but develop and mature the person in a myriad other ways. I have seen Gabrielle mature into a younger person every day. And her story indicates this process on every page.
This book will give to everyone, not only tremendous hope, but very useful tools and information for their healing.
