Okay ladies, many of you are familiar with the fact that I’ve been a hot mess lately, between my neck and back and all these horrid digestive issues. Well, my neck and back are still annoying, but massage therapy and spinal adjustments are finally helping. TODAY, I’m sharing revelations I’ve had over the past few days with regards to what this new way of eating has done to me.
First of all, I had been suffering with terrible muscle and joint pain, and thought it was from my cholesterol medicine. Had that switched, and it was reduced, but still very present only in my ankles. Second. I suffer terribly with my monthly periods- pain, pressure, bloat, clotting. Oh, they come like clockwork, but I always have HELLISH days – 1or 2- each time, and I must take mega-doses of ibuprofen. Third, I’m a lifetime asthma sufferer.
I’m pleased to tell you, that after going gluten, dairy, and soy-free, my aches are virtually gone! My period came a couple of days ago. I feared the worst because right now, I can’t take any meds to ease the pain. Well, my HELL days NEVER CAME!!! This is the first period I’ve had since before my kids that I didn’t need ANY MEDICATION! My asthma has calmed down. I hadn’t taken my meds in a couple of days, testing out the theory about raw honey. No asthma flare-ups! I’ll still take Singulair, but I’m pretty stoked.
Ladies, I’m not going to tell you what to do with your life. I never liked anyone telling me. I gotta tell ya, though, that removing gluten, dairy, and soy from my diet has impacted my life in a huge way. It’s cataclysmic! It’s mind-blowing! It’s severe and I don’t wish this on ANYONE. But I have to. I have no choice. And I can’t fault it because I FEEL GOOD.
