That is the question of the day. You see since I have been taking the glutathione for the last 2 months, I have had a bit of a problem with my husband and my periods. (Huh???). This problem got MUCH worse since starting the IV glutathione injections. You see glutathione is a necessary antioxidant needed for every cell of our body....it cleans the toxins from our cells. When we take in too many toxins (from food, pollution, medications, and so forth) our body becomes depleted and the toxins build up in our bodies....mostly in our fat cells. We can help increase glutathione in our bodies by eating high sulfur foods (or taking MSM0, exercising, and taking precursors such as NAC. When we increase our glutathione, the body then has the tools to clean itself of toxins. In our case, topical steroids. Plus all the other toxins our bodies could not rid itself of due to using TS on a daily basis - in my case for 30 years. Ummmm, that's A LOT of toxins people!
So what does this have to do with my hubby and my periods? You see my last period caused me a lot of burning "down there". Basically my own blood burned my skin. I thought I was going to die for those 4 days. I thought maybe I got a yeast infection....but after it was gone, so was the burning. Hmmmm. Then there is the problem with hubby and our ummmm, relations. You see, for the last few weeks, anytime we try to get "close" he ends up burning and on fire from my bodily fluid. At first we thought there were other issues at hand but nope...basically I am causing his sensitive skin to burn. What in the world???? Then it hit me as to what might really be going on (thanks to bouncing this off my sister and her coming up with the why). Either I am highly acidic from the supplements (although I can't figure out how or why that would be), or I am releasing toxins in such large volumes, the toxins are coming out in any way possible.
I figure it has to be the toxins. I am still not sweating a lot....only under my breasts on a regular basis, and on my neck and chest only during exercise. The smell is always strong but not to the point of nausea. Well yesterday I started to sweat finally in my armpits. I jumped in the shower after my elliptical routine. When I went to raise my arms to wash my hair, I thought I was going to vomit!! The smell was THAT bad coming from my armpits. It was not normal body odor. As a nurse, I have smelled some nasty BO before. This surpassed them all! I may be a bit dramatic here, but seriously, I have NEVER smelled anything that horrible coming from my body before! It was by far gross and disgusting! The first thought that came after the nausea, was "I've got to be toxic!".
I would love to know if anyone else has experienced this maybe with a cleanse or something similar. It is not something that causes me grief, but it did initially put a strain on my marriage because neither of us knew what the heck was going on. Now that we think we know, we are working around it. But it would help to know if these kinds of things have affected others with cleanses or detox supplements.
Sorry for the very sensitive topics discussed...but I have been honest about this journey and will continue to report things as they come along no matter how good, how bad, or how sensitive. :)
