Ok so we covered my first initial appointment. Now let’s just dive into my 2nd.
Blood tests…. My fav…JK. But this one I was actually looking forward to because finally I would get some clear answers. So I did my fasting the night before and Monday morning there I was eager to get poked and pee in a cup. So fun right?
Then 5 days later I headed into my appt. Now since I can’t tell you everything due to the fact that I didn’t actually get that print out cuz that’s doctors eyes only stuff and I have the memory of an ant when it comes to medical terms, so I’ll just tell you what I remember.
I was dehydrated (shocker 🙄) I’m the worst at drinking water BUT I finally found a killer water bottle which I talk about on my #4 podcast. I was very acidic, and my gastrointestinal system was in my words, FUCKED UP. This was due to the common causes, most likely food intolerances, stress, infection which lead to –> disbyosis and damaging immune reaction in my mucosal lining of the gut –> aka intense gut inflammation which led to villious flattening (tentacle thing I was referring to on my podcast) which led to malabsorption. And alas my diagnosis Leaky Gut Syndrome. Basically my guts were totally trashed from the trash I was putting in my body and the stress that I was experiencing for who knows how long. Still with me???
So started the healing! REMOVE & REPLACE. The no list…which I was a little hesitant about at first but now it’s actually a breeze and I love eating the way I do and just chilling the fuck out, ya know? It feels REAL good! 😎
I know this may be a lot of reading but I’m giving you guys my actual full program that’s helped me literally back to being a light instead of a dark moody shit head. Because we all know healthy people are happy people! Keep in my mind this worked for me but may not work for others so always consult your Dr before going forward with big changes.
The elimination diet (remove):
-no nightshade veggies, tomatoes, eggplant, pepper family, potatoes…cue me crying over cutting out my best vegetable friend 😭🥔❤️
-no white anything, sugar, flour, alcohol, rice (brown rice is ok, takes fucking forever to cook so be advised well before you start dinner unlike me…)
-no dairy, eggs, peanuts, red meat
-no coffee! Thought I’d hate this one but my coffee headache and withdrawals are over and I don’t found THEE best alternative! Blog to come 😉
-no wheat or corn
-no pop or drinks sweetened with sugar
– limit hot spices
-eat 4 different veggies per day, best if raw or steamed
-eat 3 fruit per day
-one handful of berries per day
-a variety of legumes such as split peas, lentils, and beans of all kinds.
-lots of wild fish, salmon, cod, baked or broiled or steamed
-meat of free range, chicken or turkey (I’m a pescatarian so I don’t eat these)
-healthy fats, extra virgin cold pressed olive oil, flax oil, fish oils and fats found in raw nuts and seeds. Seeds must be ground to release oils. Coconut or grapeseed oil must be used for high temp cooking.
-herbal teas, mineralized water, total fluids I’m trying to drink are 2L/day. (Again peep the podcast for the best water bottle)
-honey, maple syrup or stevia in small amounts for sweetener.
Basically this is like a gluten free, 87% vegan diet LOL but totally doable! If I can do it, you can too.
Also try to cut out products with shit in them, you know like those awful cancer causing beauty products you probably lather on your skin. Cleaning products and plastics that are hazardous, get rid of em! Look for bpa free, phthalate free, fragrance free, hypoallergenic, biofriendly products.
60 mins minimum of activity per day.
I’m currently making a list with photos of my fav food products I’ve found, so stay tuned for that.
Part 3 coming soon. Let me know your thoughts, drop me a DM, email or vmail on the podcast and let’s talk all things health!
Wishing you clean, happy, and energetic love and light today humans.
Luv yew all 💕
