I’ve been following the Medical Medium Protocol for around 4 months now (first post is here). Seeing as I think, breathe and live this protocol I thought I’d give you a little update, share my passion, and for any other devotees out there, share my tips for how to do normal life whilst on a significantly limited diet and whilst managing various schedules of juices, smoothies, teas and tablets.
I sincerely believe in Anthony William and many people are reporting success in healing themselves. I intend to be one of them! I am completely dedicated to doing it the best I can because nothing is more important to me than my healing. I want a miracle. I want to prove the medics wrong – that it IS possible to heal hearing loss. And most of all I want to save my life (and hopefully one day others)..because I don’t want to live without hearing.
But I guess no matter how strong my faith and determination to succeed, in the end I will only be able to judge the protocol by the physical results. There are no guarantees it will work for me and it’s certainly not going to be a quick fix or easy journey. This is life changing stuff. Not only am I learning to live with disability, but I’m also managing a raw till 4, gluten-corn-soy-free vegan diet!
Despite the challenges I aim to continue until I am either well again, or until am bankrupt by herbs, powders and vitamins and have to give up! Unfortunately I can’t report any miracles yet and my hearing seems to have dropped again, much to my silent despair.
In general I feel pretty good. Considering that I’m now back at work full time, learning lip reading and sign language, developing my therapy business and doing more work with clients, I’ve got good energy levels considering. People say I look well even though I’ve put on a little weight from nuts and less exercise. The best judge I think is our emotions, and I’ve been feeling positive and clear-headed most of the time.
What Anthony William said about Sudden Hearing Loss
I seriously nearly jumped out of my skin with joy when Anthony William responded to my question about sudden hearing loss. He said that:
Sudden hearing loss is due to Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) getting in the labyrinth of the inner ear. Many people are affected by this. Having your zinc and Vitamin C reserves built up is necessary for what you’re dealing with. Spirit recommends taking the liquid zinc sulfate and Liposomal C). The right B12 (with adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin) is also imperative for the nerve damage, as is eating frozen wild blueberries every day if possible. CoEnzyme Q10 and Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) are also critical. Spirit suggests you focus on praying to some of the angels in the book to help you with the hearing loss. Angels are very helpful for this specific problem, so it’s important to work with them. It’s also very helpful for you to get a little bit of sun on the side of the head and on the ear where the hearing loss is. Not too much sun, just a few minutes a day is good. This will be helpful in restoring the hearing loss.
I don’t want everyone reading this to assume they need these the same supplements as me because his advice is personalised for the individual, but these do seem to be the ‘go to’ supplements for EBV issues.
But in another case of sudden deafness, Anthony had a different response, indicating it is not always EBV in the labyrinth but Strep bacteria.
With 10,000 people on his waiting list, I’ve got a long wait ahead of me for an appointment so in the meantime I had a session with one of his recommended practitioners Muneeza. .
Anthony William recommended practitioner Muneeza said….
…I have a particularly aggressive strain of EBV which has affected my central nervous system. She said this is why when I get upset I tend to get very shaky. Its like my nerves are fragile. As you will know if you have read the book, EBV takes advantage of the body during periods of intense emotional stress and before I got ill in Feb 2015 I had quite a few months of intense emotional stress resulting from a relationship I was finding difficult. This allowed the virus to take hold and move from my thyroid to my ears – causing this massive disruption to my life. Her view is that it is possible to get a lot of my hearing back, but probably not all of it. She said this would depend on my discipline and on whether I can keep my stress levels low. She said if I am diligent it could take 2-3 years…
(Oh blimey governor that’s a looo..n.g.. time ….!!)
My Updated Supplement Protocol
My protocol has changed a few times since my last post but below is the latest version which was adapted by the Anthony Williams recommended practitioner. More of the products are the brands recommended by Anthony William. I’ve learned that it really is important to get the right ones and not to cut corners even if the ingredients seem to be the same. Some of the supplements on the last list I posted I would no longer recommend because for instance I’ve discovered that gelatin, which is made from the the worse form of pork sludge, feeds EBV. I was also advised to avoid any form of supplemental calcium which can be found as a filler.
Below are all the supplements I’m taking. Please note that I keep a separate page listing all the supplements I’ve found to be the highest quality and best value in the UK. To my knowledge they meet all the criteria for the Anthony William protocol. The UK Supplements for Medical Medium Protocol page is here.
- Vitamin B12
- Folic Acid
- Silver Hydrosol
- Barley Grass
- Vitamin C
- Liposomal Vitamin C
- Coenzyme Q10
- Cats Claw
- Licorice Root
- Lemon Balm
- Flax Seed oil
- Red Marine Algae
- Alpha Lipoic Acid
My diet hasn’t changed much as I was already on the right track, however the medical intuitive I spoke with said I need to be even stricter. She said I absolutely need to eliminate
- Animal products
- Wheat and gluten
- Corn products
- Soy products
- Canola oils
- Chicken or eggs
…and to think for all of last year I was on the Paleo diet – eating meat!
If I’m eating outside of home she told me to phone ahead and check with the chef that there is food available for me and what oils they use. I’m definitely not a fun person to take out for dinner these days! I’ve very much enjoyed the occasional vegan Indian buffet over the past few months but she said even if though I only had the vegan and gluten free dishes, it’s probably cooked with poor quality vegetable oils or thickened with corn starch – which are no no’s. The worse part is that all those gluten free cakes I was treating myself to were most probably made from corn, which is just as bad as wheat. Knowing what to eat is a bit of a minefield.
So I continue to gorge on fruit and veg and have found a few really good products like this black bean pasta and lentil pasta which are delicious with meridian vegan pesto to jazz things up a bit when I’m bored of salads. Or I just introduce some lentils, quinoa or buckwheat. Learning how to make delicious food with fruit and vegetables is key. Check out my recipes on pinterest for inspiration on how to eat whilst sticking to the protocol
Its been really hard to find wild blueberries in the UK which are essential to the protocol….until I discovered that they are actually called BILBERRIES!! Anthony recommends eating these daily – either fresh dried or frozen. They are a crucial element of the metal detoxification part. Don’t forget, you need to buy the ones without citric acid or sugar. I found these here.
How I take my supplements
The craziest part of the regime is fitting it all in as some things need to be taken away from other things. This is how I do it
- Sub-lingual B12 before my morning shower (B12 likes to be taken alone)
- Lemon, ginger, honey in water after my morning shower – (to clear and revive the liver)
- Celery juice once dressed – (source of important mineral salts and heals the digestive tract)
- barley grass juice as ready to leave the house (heavy metal detoxification)
- morning supplements
- smoothie with some supplements in it around noon
- afternoon liquid supplements
- Raw lunch
- Munchies – fruit, nuts and naked bars
- Cooked dinner with lots of salad (and prepare smoothie, salad, supplements for next day)
- Evening supplements
- Munchies – Fruit, nuts
- Magnesium before bed
“Has she totally lost the plot?” I hear you say (with my half functioning ears).
As you can see it isn’t for the faint hearted! I call it being ‘determined to do the very best for myself’ and besides, it feels good to be healthier. A clean diet really does have positive effects on our mental, emotional and physical well-being. I salivate now over strawberries just as much as I used to over a piece of cheesecake.I don’t want to go back to feeling lethargic and brain foggy.
If you’re not feeling so good, have chronic or mystery illness, why not give it a go for a few months? Let me know how you get on. I’d love to hear from you if you’re following this protocol. Also join up with the wonderful communities on Facebook (USA and UK/Europe) which are a hive of information and kind and active support. If you would like me to cover any particular aspects of the protocol please let me know.
Best wishes to all of you out there going through health problems, hearing loss or vestibular problems. I feel for you and hope my blog lets you know you are not going through it alone xx
