Like Wayne, an Oklahoman I met via the Internet, I have have both CLL leukemia AND diverticulosis. I’ve never been officially diagnosed with diverticulosis, but every time I eat nuts or seeds whole, I suffer. Sometimes for days.
It’s not the chemical composition of the nuts and seeds. I know this because when I grind them into dust (flaxseeds) or buy them already ground into paste (almond butter) I can eat them with wild abandon — and no after effects.
Part of my good health program started in 2007 when I started taking amygdalin pills from Mexico, along with enzymes and other supplements. I was advised to also eat the apricot seeds — in addition to the pills. I tried this twice early on in 2007 and 2008. Both times I suffered severe stomach upset. For days.
But after speaking to Wayne in Oklahoma for the third time, my husband encouraged me to buy a pill making device and grind my own apricot seeds in our coffee grinder (Mr Coffee brand, available everywhere). I’ve been doing this for just a few months. My last doctor visit showed a marked improvement in my WBC (from 32 down to 23… yay!) But those numbers do tend to bounce around. I will report back after my next visit.
The general way to take amygdalin, B-17, laetrile (all pretty much the same thing) is: if you have cancer of any kind, it is generally recommended to work your way up to three 500mg tablets/day, one at each meal — in addition to eating the apricot seeds. Once again, it is recommended to take one seed for every ten pounds of weight, each day. I personally grind my seeds and then put them into capsules with the help of a pillmaker I found online, but many people are able to eat the seeds whole. (The taste of the seeds is not great — another incentive to grind and make into pills!)
Please note that I am not a doctor — and that I am giving information about what works for me, personally. If this intrigues you, first go to WorldWithoutCancer.uk.org and learn all you can about it. I wholly recommend that you research and try things for yourself — carefully and safely. Not to mention seeking out the advice of a health care practitioner who is familiar with vitamin B17. I found my doctor on cancure.org. He isn’t local — but I think it was well worth the trip!
Due to an unreasonable amount of SPAM, I suggest that you email me at info(at)cllalternatives.com if you can’t seem to get a comment posted.
