Well the month of January for the year 2018 has come and gone, in what feels like a blink of an eye. I do wish that my progress from the protocol was happening as quickly. My calcium is still high, not over the threshold, but bumping right up against it. For that reason I am still taking significantly reduced amounts of vitamin d. I mentioned previously that I was adding PectaClear. I will acknowledge that the first couple of times it left my legs feeling like the were encased in lead. Walking was so difficult, and I fatigued significantly faster. After a month the experience is different. I am not sure if this is because I am getting accustomed to PectaClear, or maybe it is being effective, and the heavy metals are being removed from my system. So without the lessening of these undesired compounds in my system, my body feels negativity because of the PectaClear. I have also added Disolvatol in response to the kidney stone. I am also hopeful that this will help reduce the calcium levels in my blood. I was supposed to have a doctors appointment that had to be rescheduled because of an unexpected event on his part. So no date yet when that will happen. When it does I will request for the some tests to monitor how my calciums levels are currently. Hopefully they continue to decrease so that I can slowly increase my levels of vitamin d. I am trying to be patient and remain hopeful, but it is difficult when one is not noticing any improvements, or reason to be excited. I have been timing my walk from the car to the office in the morning and from the office back to the car in the evenings. Trying to use this as an indication of how I am doing, how things are progressing. Something a bit more measurable than my saying I am "feeling good". For the past month my times I have higher than I would have liked. While not my worse times, usually 15-20 seconds slower than what I would have called my previous "normal" times. Last night I was 20 seconds faster in the evening than my morning time. It was the first time in over a month my time was back within my previous "normal" range. I am really curious to see the time next week. Was this an aberration, or will times remain in the previous range. Better yet, will the time to continue to decease, giving me a positive indication that I want, need.
