To Stevenson from Vancouver:
I want to thank you very much for your posting about Kathy Hurd and the legume regimen. I have suffered with gallstone/gallbladder issues most of my adult life. I am now 44 years old. I used to do flushes to help my situation, but allowed far too much time to lapse and am now very uncomfortable and in pain much of the time. I fear that my liver is also damaged due to years of unhealthy life choices, via food, drink and stress. And as a person without insurance or means to be treated by a doctor, I am left to my own devices.
I am embarking on this regimen tomorrow and have spent the entire day researching and preparing my beans. :-) I don't know if there are any "no-no's" with this diet, but I just prepared a Mexican Bean Salad that I do like very much and intend to eat other variations of beans recipes as well. It includes a total of 10. 5 cups of beans (kidney, cannellini & black), 6 cups total of diced green & red peppers, 2 red onions minced, 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/2 cup red wine vinegar, 2 TBL lemon and 4 TBL lime juice, 1 TBL cumin, 1 TSP chili pepper, 1 1/2 TBL salt, 1 TBL pepper, 4 cloves fresh mashed garlic, and 1-1/2 TBL of sugar. Are there any ingredients in here that I should steer clear from? I figure this is about 3 days worth of beans!
I am VERY interested in what your test results will show after your appointment with the doctor. Please do keep us informed! It's people like you who are willing to share their experiences that enrich this community.
