Tips to Prioritize Your Healing Protocol
There really is no sugar coating it: healing takes work. It takes dedication.
Being on a healing protocol requires planning, organization, and a willingness to roll with the punches when things don’t go as planned.
There will be speed bumps, aggravations, healing reactions, and emotional revelations, but this is what you signed up for.
And guess what?
It’s 1000% worth it.
So let’s look at what one of my healing protocols will inevitably entail regardless of the patient.
Please note that there may be extra exercises and protocols added in depending on the patient, but across the board these are the protocols I put most of my patients on: a supplement regimen, nutritional protocol based on oxidation type, coffee enemas, some sort of sweat therapy such as an infrared sauna, and time carved out of each day for emotional reflection or meditation.
You may be thinking, how am I going to have time for all this in my already jam-packed schedule?
Careful and meticulous planning, multi-tasking, and a strong drive to get healthy goes a long way.
Here are 5 tips on how to make your healing protocol work for you, even with a busy schedule.
1. Brew enema night before and plan out a coffee enema schedule
Coffee enemas are one of the most vital detoxification protocols I prescribe to nearly all my patients.
Sometimes patients will be doing enemas 5 or more times per week, so planning out your coffee enemas is crucial.
It is best to do coffee enemas in the morning and they can easily be slid into a morning routine if you brew the enema coffee the night before.
This greatly expedites the process and it won’t take you more than 20-25 minutes.
2. Meal prep
Vegetables and protein are key elements in any healing diet.
They deeply mineralize you and make sure that blood sugar stays stable throughout the day.
I highly recommend roasting or steaming a couple trays of vegetables on a Sunday afternoon in preparation for the week ahead.
While the vegetables are cooking, cook any protein you are using for the week and prep whole grains on the stove top.
This way you’ll have plenty of grab-and-go options available which will save time, minimize stress, and keep you away from temptation.
It is best to keep meals simple for digestibility, but don’t forget to use plenty of seasonings and fresh herbs to spice things up!
Many healing protocols can be combined so you can multi-task and make the most of your time.
For example, if I prescribe a patient to unwind the nervous system with meditation each night and also prescribe red light therapy, you can meditate while using your red light.
You can also use your coffee enema time to meditate and use breathing techniques to relax the whole body.
4. Have a visible list of supplements you need to take on the fridge or in a journal and have a set time you take them each day to get into a routine
This is one of the most helpful tips for staying on top of your healing protocol.
When I prescribe a patient a specific set of nutritional supplements, they need to be taken at specific times and in specific doses.
Your morning dose will most likely be different than your afternoon or nighttime dose, so it can be hard to keep track of if you don’t keep a list handy.
I also highly advise packing your supplements for the next day in a container so you can grab it in the morning and take it with you to work so you don’t have to take a bunch of pill bottles with you.
Remember, it is CRUCIAL to take your supplements in the right dosages, at the right times, and every day!
There is a reason that I prescribe them in specific quantities and at specific times.
5. Have a strong why (and paste it somewhere visible)
Healing takes time, dedication, and perseverance.
Undoubtedly, there are going to be bumps in the road.
There are going to be times when you don’t feel like doing your coffee enema, or don’t feel like meditating, or when your cravings for junk food become unbearable.
There will also be times when you go through difficult healing reactions.
