Traveler's Diarrhea - any suggestions?
I had no idea that diarrhea could be a projectile. It was the most out of control experience I've had... ever? I mean there was absolutely no stopping it. Thank goodness I was back at my airBnB condo and close to the shower.
Last week I was in Mexico attending a healing intensive retreat held by Dr. Joe Dispenza. I saw amazing miraculous healings. Gosh, so many incredable healings...
Saul was a man who had broken his back in 3 places from a skydiving accident years ago. He had a permanent severe kyphosis - his body disfigured into a shape like the number 7. During one meditation we were told to lay down on the floor. Saul thought "oh no, I'll either have my feet in the air or my head and chest up". But he told himself he would do it anyway. And when he laid down he heard a POP, POP, POP.. and his back straightened.! The rest of the week he had a huge grin on his face and he would lay down on the floor and jump back up again, over and over in joy.
A woman with stage 4 cancer - did all chemo, all the radiation, everything - until there was nothing else they could do. She was basically told to go home and die. She had been at one of these healing events two months earlier and had a profound healing. She told us that she had just gotten back the test results that she was cancer free. The doc's couldn't believe it and re-did the tests twice.
Dr. Joe has been collecting all of the before and after medical records and carefully documenting this.
This is not voo doo or faith healing, as he also has some serious science behind the methodology he has created.
Note that most of the healing were not from attending a one-time event - the healed people had been doing the work for months or years before that.
I myself was there to see if I could heal my vision. I was born legally blind and I am on a quest to have perfect vision. I have been doing lots of work and have improved myself to only being nearsighted (that's another story!). But I have a ways to go yet to make it to 20/20.
At this event, I did not improve my vision but I had many personal breakthroughs - especially around letting go of judgment of other people. And, as I mentioned, most of the miraculous healings weren't just because of the one week event. So I completely understand I am on a journey.
I know I will heal my vision - I am going to keep working on it until I do.
The projectile diarrhea came on the evening after the close of the event (thankfully). My intestines turned into a pit of electric eels! I had never believed any sickness could stop me from traveling before, but now I have found one 😉
You know, I was so surprised by this. I have lived and traveled to more than 37 different countries. I am not stupid (like drinking tap water in Mexico City), but I am not overly protective either. I eat street food, I eat fresh fruits and vegetables, I drank from mountain streams with the Tarahumara.
I had never been this ill.
I know that the standard story is 'You got a bug - Montezuma's revenge".
But I also understand that I had done a tremendous amount of letting go of 'crap' on the emotional and spiritual levels and that my body was corresponding with a really rapid letting go of - well - my shit - on the physical level.
When I think of the experience this way, I am really, really grateful. I am so glad to have made it back home without any 'accidents'. But I still have a lot of gurgling guts, liquid coming out, and I am desperately afraid to fart.
I've been focusing on staying hydrated. Coconut water, and the homemade hydration drink (1 quart of water, 1 tsp of honey, 1/2 tsp of salt), and maybe this is TMI, but enema's.
Do you have any other suggestions to help ease my guts?
I didn't find an emoticon for intestines or electric eels... LOL
