Health is not an easy kite to fly.
All the gains of fasting are diminishing rapidly: starting with the lip and then the tongue. A�Infact the lip is back to status quo. A�The first insight i gained is that food is the allergen, given that i introduced it into my body last Sunday. A�One of the first cooked food given to me was a wheat dosa- the likelihood that i am allergic to wheat is strong. A�Over the week as i travelled through fort Kochi and varkala, the kinds of foods eaten varied- I tried to stay raw with salads but did have shrimps and rice twice. A�Have been wheat free before this journey too and cant report an improvement.
Varkala has a Govt Nature cure hospital right by the beach- nice doctor willing to admit me but the shared space in wards and hygiene issues just made me step back. A�I seem to be unable to find my rough traveller bone.
Today being Ekadashi, I am going on a fruit fast followed by a water fast. A� My stress levels are really low in Varkala- there is good vibe where i am. A�I have spoken to three naturopathic doctors and they all are selling me some treatment or retreat and currently I am not inclined to try. A�The week ahead is going to be seeking answers within. A�I hope to speak to my body and get some answers- do yog nidra, yoga and meditations and long walks.
This has been a week of long walks- the sea and the Janardhan temple make for delightful trails. A�As was fort Kochi. A�Walking and breathing the sea air and connecting with the body more deeply. A�Keep life simple this coming week. A�Being a sleuth in search of inflammation triggers is my job.
