Diet and Wholistic Healing

It’s been some time since I’ve written last – sorry!  I need to update you on how the new diet is working.  It’s hard making all the changes you need to.  I am doing baby steps.  Cutting things out here and there, getting used to it and then moving on.

The other thing I have been doing is Body Talk.  I am going to a Holistic Healer and it’s working.  Search for someone who practices Body Talk and try it.  There are no medications or anything invasive about it.  So far my numbness, fatigue, brain fog and a multitude of other symptoms have either gone away or dramatically decreased. 

I almost feel NORMAL!!!

I am not one who would actively search out something like holistic healing but I was at my witts end!  I am glad I did!  Let me know if you have questions about it and I will do my best to answer them.  I try not to question what’s happening – I go with it!

Swank Diet? MS Recovery Diet? Best Bets Diet? Paleo Diet?

Hi Friends!

 Sorry I haven’t written in a couple of days but I am still recovering from a relapse.  Last night was interesting.  I couldn’t move my knees!  I ended up being a bed bug for the day!  Today is better…so far!  I tend to get worse as the day goes on.  My body fatigues more.  Pace myself…I have to learn what that means!

Have you used any of the MS diets out there?  When I was first diagnosed I changed many bad habits; I kicked my Diet Coke addiction, stopped eating processed foods and never ate anything that came in a package.  I only ate fresh fruits and vegetables and lean meats.

I felt great.  I even trained and competed in a Triathlon for the first time ever.  After my training days were over, I got lazy.  I started with the processed foods again and have never been the same since. 

This weekend I did a lot of diet research on MS diets and found a common thread.  All recommended the following:

  • No gluten
  • No processed foods
  • Low saturated fat diet
  • No dairy

Hmmm….was it a coincidence that I went into remission when I changed my eating habits?  I don’t know but I am going to test it.  Starting today, none of the bad stuff – just fresh, whole foods and no gluten!

Let me know your results if you have ever practiced one of these diets.  Did your symptoms subside?  Were they minimized?

Anxious to hear!
