Detox, Detox, Detox

oh…how difficult you are.

I saw the nutritionist yesterday.  She’s a holistic nutritionist, believing as I do, that a body out of balance manifests in disease.  And boy, is it ever time to put my money where my mouth is.  I don’t want anybody to get alarmed, though.  I’m working closely with my MD (who didn’t don the boxing gloves …that was all in my head) on this process.

The thinking is that I’m experiencing the combo of Leaky Gut Syndrome along with an overgrowth of Candida.  Those of you who know my history with antibiotics probably won’t be totally surprised to hear that.  Also, my liver isn’t happy.  We retest again in 4 weeks, and in the meanwhile, I’m tapering some of the medications I’m on.  That’s at the direction of the MD.  I’m also going off dairy (except for Kefir), sugar, coffee and corn.

The plan is to heal the small intestine, starve off the yeast, and let my body heal.

I’m not anticipating a happy next couple of weeks.  The candida die-off is, they tell me, particularly unpleasant.  So, I guess I’m going to have more pain and fatigue coming on.

And while it’s too early for that to be happening, today is just not a good day.  I’m surprised, coming off a really good couple of days.  In fact, I feel like I do after I ingest wheat, and while we ordered in from Chipotle, that’s one of my safer places (if I don’t order a flour tortilla), because all there food, except for the flour tortillas, are wheat and gluten free.  Maybe it’s the corn?  I did have chips last night, and corn isn’t something I often.

So I renew my commitment to making really good food that is really good for me to eat.  It’s just become a bit more challenging.

On another note, my Svaroopa yoga class starts tonight.  I’m very excited.  The only other time I’ve done Svaroopa, I felt profound changes.  I’m really looking forward to what a 6 week session will be like.

Was going to ride today, but it’s very windy and I’m very achy.   Yoga tonight, Reiki this afternoon and food shopping later.

    I am just so very glad I know you! I remember when you were living in NYC and talked about having a Reiki client appt… Reiki was just a dream for me… now I’m a practitioner. I love how you know Elsbeth and Nybor… and that you continue to share your adventures (and that I’ve found those places).

    You are an extraordanary woman! and I hope you know that.

    I love you! Lynda
