If you are interested in my last post on Rheumatoid Arthritis click the highlighted name. I seriously hope this helps someone. That is the only reason I am talking about this. Most people probably don’t even know what RA is. I never did until it happened to me. This isn’t some kind of endorsement for the nutritionist I’m going to other then to share how she has helped me ……in hopes that maybe she can help you ….or someone you know. .
Today I thought I would share a little more about the path to wellness from RA that Karen laid out for me:
I guess I’ll start with my NO list…… Oh, this was also given to me for weight loss purposes as well. I don’t know how it changes once that is achieved. As of now, it hasn’t changed even though I’ve reached the weight she wants me at. I just increase nuts to sustain the weight
Ready :)…..here goes The NO’s: Remember all these things stimulate the adrenals, which is what I’m trying to heal with God’s help.. Seriously, I can’t say no to these things on my own, at least I haven’t been able to the past 17 years up until now.
Artificial and natural sweeteners …yes that includes xylitol, agave, stevia etc.
Fragrances or perfumes
Tea of any kind
No formal exercise
I’m not suggesting this diet for anyone else, you need to consult Karen for your specifics
FYI…I also have other issues like Thyroid, heart palpitations, environmental sensitivities and tons of food allergies.
I don’t know about the plans she gives other people but this is the one she gave me.
Good news side note!! My thyroid has improved greatly. I was on 4 grain now I’m on a quarter of 1 grain.
Palm size protein 3 times a day
vegetable 3 times a day
legumes 3 times a day
3/4 gal water-purified
sleep 8 hrs rest
1 -1/2 c. lightly salted nuts
As of February 2013, I am off all of my inflammatory meds. and don’t take anything for pain.
I still have some inflammation in my hands but that was there even when I took the meds.
I am focusing on eliminating food intolerance’s and other intolerance’s….enviro and chemical.
I think those are the biggest issues right now. Plus, leaky gut. I still have a ton of different food
allergies ( they are actually called intolerance’s not “true” allergies) I still take a small amount
of thyroid med and something for rapid heart rate. I will write more when I have time.
Thank you Lord for helping me each step of the way.
