I’m on the journey of eliminating more and more things from my lifestyle, in an attempt to heal my gut. “Modern medicine” has failed to help me, therefore, through what I’ve learned in the last year and a half I’m going to heal myself (sure wish I would’ve found this path sooner, but alas, better late than never)!
So far, I’ve eliminated nightshades (7 days), I have had no dairy (other than grass-fed butter) for 9 days and no soda for 9 days (I rarely drink soda anyway). We have family visiting now, so it’s a little more difficult to be as strict with schedules, eating, and experimenting with new things, etc.
Next Monday I’ll start the Auto-Immune Protocol (AIP), something I learned about through Paleo. It helps people with auto-immune diseases that continue to struggle with digestive issues and/or leaky gut, heal themselves (if you don’t know what leaky gut is, google it, as I bet you have some form of it, or again, buy Practical Paleo!!). The majority of a person’s immune system is in their gut, and considering how messed up mine is, that’s alarming, ha. Plus, it isn’t good for anyone to constantly be in a state of stress from discomfort, pain, and chronic inflammation.
So, my “no” tally is about to get real long. If anyone wants to join me, we can hold each other accountable-the first step is 30 days.
