Are Your Adrenals Happy?

I posted this on the weight vest site and then decided to post it here as well. It is titled differently because google has rules about duplicate content but there is nothing new.

It came to me in meditation this morning that my adrenals have been stressed since I was a kid. I had an incident of abandonment when I was four years old. I was rushed to hospital with kidney malfunction and kept there for 2 months. My mother was allowed to visit for an hour a week and my father didn’t come at all because that hour was at work time. And, of course, there was no explanation given at all for any of this. I thought they’d given me away because a new baby had arrived recently. The hospital was run like an army boot camp, the nurses were not allowed to touch me or play with me as I got better and it was like being in jail.

I’ve known for ages that experience was the root of much of my odd way of looking at the world and I’ve done all kinds of therapy on it. But this morning I saw clearly that if anyone had known anything about adrenals back then it could have changed my life. So I had a chat with my adrenals this morning and promised to treat them better and I thought some of you might like to do the same.269556-20418-43

Our adrenals are the two glands that sit on top of our kidneys. They secrete all kinds of hormones that we need to stay balanced, the most important being cortisol. When we are in a stressful situation our adrenals pump out cortisol, the fight or flight hormone, and it gives us a jolt of power. In the usual example of a bear coming closer, we would have the sudden energy to climb a tree, run like heck or pick up a big branch and whack him with it.

So, nowadays, our lives are stressed all the time from the crazy way we live in this culture; traffic, jobs, relationships, finances, responsibilities we wish we didn’t have but can’t get out of, etc. etc. So instead of running to a safe place and settling back into peace, we are always on minor red alert. This destroys the adrenals. I don’t know many women whose adrenals are in great shape actually.

I think adrenal malfunction is one of the first things to set you on the downhill spiral. The thyroid generally goes next, and so on and on, until you become someone you wouldn’t have recognized a few years ago.

I have known for ages what makes my adrenals happy, but haven’t always been able to give them the priority they deserve. So when they are unhappy, I get crabby, when I’m crabby, more bad stuff happens because of my negative energy field. Then I’m even less likely to settle down into a peaceful state that would make them feel happier.

Now my new mantra is – When my adrenals are happy, I’m happy! I am more the joyful, caring person I came into this body to be.

So we had a chat this morning.

I’m really coming to believe that our bodies are like a village, every part of it has it’s own patterns and it’s own agenda and we all have to get along. I apologized from my deepest heart for the abuse I’ve heaped on my adrenals all these years. I sent them huge love and appreciation for allowing me to awaken as much as I have. I told them that now I have a deep connection with Source, (God) my feeling of being alone in the world has dissipated most of the time. And I promised to keep them in my awareness when stuff comes up and deal with it in a way that doesn’t stress them out too much. For instance, if I get mad at something during my day I just release it to Source and bless the person who annoyed me. The adrenals loved that!!

So I realize that to some of you I sound like a complete nut case. But I think that our adrenal health is very connected with our bones and we can do all the right things to improve our bone density but if our adrenals are on red alert all day our whole body suffers and stops growing and starts concentrating on just maintaining the vital organs. Bones are not vital organs to the body so they get put on the back burner.

Adrenal health is also directly connected with sleep – and if we don’t sleep well everything in the body and mind goes downhill.

I won’t bore you with all the things happy adrenals will do for you. I’m sure most of you know all that already. So my main contribution here is to let you know that you can talk to your body parts (your village) and appreciate them and give them love instead of blaming them for your sad or fearful or mad day or even life.

 

Do We Have Trapped Emotions in Our Bodies?

In my constant quest for effective tools of healing, I came across The Emotion Code recently. The premise of the program is that we store trapped emotions in our bodies that affect our lives in various nefarious ways. So anything we were not equipped to deal with at the time, from the womb forward, creates a ball of energy and lodges in whatever spot in your body it chooses. It may choose a spot because there is some weakness in it already but there is no logic to it, abandonment could be stored in your big toe and anger in your elbow.

That definitely resonated with me because I’ve done almost every kind of healing work there is and yet there are still some automatic reactions embedded in my system that just drive me nuts. I catch myself saying, “Are you not over that YET for Heaven’s sake!!!!!”

So the interesting part about Dr Bradley Nelson’s system is that you can clear these old things very easily by yourself. Anyone who is interested can get a free ebook and the flow charts for doing it yourself here.  I told one lovely customer about it right after I found it and she hit paydirt with the first thing she cleared. Amazing!

I highly recommend that you give it a try if you are open to an adventure. I myself, of course, overdid it at first and got a processing reaction from trying to deal with too much too fast. But after a very emotional two weeks I am settling down again now. It heals physical pain as well as emotional blocks.

Dr Brad has many videos on youtube that show amazing healing taking place so I am going to try it out on some innocent bystanders this week. I really would love to be able to heal a twenty year old pain for someone in ten minutes by releasing two or three trapped emotions! He makes it look like a piece of cake!

Oh! and it gets better! You can release these things from your ancestors as well. There are a lot of healers talking about healing the ancestors lately. It seems to be the latest hot thing. When I first encountered it I thought, ‘Why would you worry about your ancestors, they are out dancing in their light bodies in the Solar Winds – which is what I’m going to be doing when I’m dead?’ But apparently in some portion of their reality they feel badly that they stuck a long line of descendents with their pain. Dr Brad says they often show up at the healing sessions and then disappear when it’s healed.

Another interesting thing is that, although this seems very Woowoo, it seems to attract very normal mainstream people. Perhaps because Dr Brad got it directly from prayer. So I’m intrigued. So intrigued I bought the Body Code as well which was a sizable investment but heals more stuff. Now I really hope it does work. I will keep you posted.

I also have to report that my auto-immune diet did work. Four months down the road my leaky gut is healed and I am starting to add certain things back into my diet slowly so that I can eat a larger variety of food again and gain a few pounds back. I don’t think I will ever go back to dairy, sugar, grains or processed foods. The more I looked into it the more dangerous most processed foods looked. Just read the labels and you’ll see what I mean! So, excepting for very special social occasions, I think I’ve kicked that habit. I actually like cooking my own fresh food every day; I feel like a pioneer woman.

The functional doctor who was having all the testing done was very business and money oriented so I won’t be going back to him. Food sensitivities are spreading so fast that it is the next money-making trend in health. He also wanted me to get off my thyroid meds and my bio-identicals. I tried that and I got slower and slower, my energy was slipping down the drain. The worst symptom was forgetting how to spell! That was going too far, so I started back on both thyroid meds and bio-identicals a couple of weeks ago and now I’m already perking up again. You have to take what your body needs – and I don’t consider these particular medications drugs, I consider them replacements for things my body no longer makes.

I wish you all a peaceful and joyful rest of the Summer.

Giving the 100 Day Challenge the Boot.

Ok, my intention to learn the trapeze in 100 days has driven me a bit berserk! I do love to keep my promises to myself whenever possible, so when I noticed I wasn’t actually doing the work every day I was first understanding and tolerant, then a bit slave-driving, then questioning (does that sound like your mum?).  Nothing actually got me going!

What I got with the questioning was two things. One, that the trapeze nowadays is not the trapeze I was imagining in my mind. When I was a child and saw the beautiful, sparkling lady climb up the ladder and get on the trapeze I was totally awestruck. I wanted to be like her so much I could taste it! She always had her partners and brothers to swing her back and forth and flip her in the air and catch her. It just looked like Heaven! She was never a disappointment like the ride on the elephant.

It’s different now. The circus place where I do aerial yoga every week is from the new school, the Cirque du Soleil version of circus. I admire it enormously but I don’t want to go there. For one thing, the trapeze hangs from one point so it circles around  and around and doesn’t just fly straight like a swing. For another, there are no nets so the routines on the trapeze now tend to be a little hanging gymnastics and then a pose for applause, another little gymnastic contortion and then a pose.

So I was pretending to myself that I was in this for the body strengthening but really I was in it for the thrills. I wanted to be on a giant swing. And, I noticed that I’m still a bit shy about posing (‘especially at your age!’ my mum just said). Mum’s actually dead but that doesn’t stop her from talking in my head 🙂 . That’s number one.

Number two is that I have been working on revising the book a lot and also on becoming clear on what I wanted to spend my next twenty years doing. With that and the solar flares I was feeling uncharacteristically physically tired. My mind and emotions were doing really well but my body was dragging a bit. I also asked for and got greater communication with my guides, and it is wonderful, but I think so much of my being is moving into another dimension that it added to my tiredness. My body has to catch up.UCSB Labyrinth

So over Solstice I did an amazing ritual at the UCSB Labyrinth. It is pretty  new and was totally empty. It overlooks the ocean, I could hear the waves, and I was in Heaven. The message that I got was that the gift that I came to share with people, women especially, is how to get present in their bodies as a regular way of being. Then proper nutrition and self-love and breathing and reclaiming their own power to create their lives, all fall into place for each one in her own way.

I can’t tell anyone else how to eat. I finally have become clear on what suits my body at this time of my life and I’m grateful for that. But it certainly wouldn’t suit many people. I was hung up on that for a while watching people feed their addictions and getting sicker and sicker. I really want everyone to be well and happy and doing great work in the world. But after hearing the words a zillion times that everyone is on their own path, I finally got a hit right to the heart during this ritual that everyone is doing what is right for them right now. My only job is to be the best that I can be at my own life, and if I look a lot more lively and healthy than other people my age then maybe they will sit up and take notice.

So I’m not sitting on my fingers, I’m still exercising daily, but I’ve kicked the trapeze idea to the curb. And I’m not going to do challenges any more either. I will accept my life day to day as I am creating it with extreme gratitude. Often while on the beach walking with Dragon I wonder how I got so lucky.

Love and blessings,
Pam

The Absolute Joy of Moving

I am almost finished revising my book, “Come Home to Your Body.” Whoohoo! It was a lot of work! Now I have to learn all about self-publishing. It was published by Llewellyn before but self-publishing is the fastest way to go now.

I was thinking about the new ability to create videos to go along with books. I love it! Technology is the Third dimensional version of magic.

So I was planning what videos I would make and I did a practice one for a group I belong to, and watching it made me realize how far I’ve come in accepting my own ways of moving. I am who I am, and when you move in front of a camera you show who you are in every frame. At first it was intimidating but, when I moved into more self-acceptance and self-love, I stepped into the purpose of the video, which is to encourage others to be in their bodies more.

While pondering all this two youtube videos came to mind.  PLEASE click the play buttons because you will probably love both of them and the second one will make you laugh out loud.

The first one is how I would have liked my body to move when I first watched it. It is exquisite. Up until now I would have said that if I could move like that I would be happy. Now I can look at it and admire it wholeheartedly but not want to go there. It took years of control and years of seeing from the outside to get there.

The singer and songwriter is Lee Harris and the dancer is Guido Verwer. Click the play on youtube button to learn more.

The second is a video of an amazingly alive child who beams megawatt joy in her movement. That’s who I want to be like now. She totally healed me of allowing my inner critic to control my own expression of joy. After watching her I felt free to be completely dorky and whacky. She gave me permission to be more of me. And check out the sweet little angel next to her who is doing everything right. Which do you feel called to be?

So check out the level of joy you take in your movements this week. Up the ante a bit, move up the scale. You can find a NIA dance class or dance by yourself in the living room and feel as good as this little sunbeam is feeling.

What a blessing,

Pam

100 Day Challenge

I am about one third of the way through the 100 day challenge to learn the trapeze and I have to be honest, it’s not going as well as I expected 😉

I had a lesson on the first day, April 1st, April Fools Day, and found that I could not actually get up on the trapeze from the floor. You have to bring your legs up and over your head while hanging from the trapeze. My legs were not going anywhere!! Just think about it for a minute. There aren’t many, or any, actions in daily life that bring your up legs over your head from standing.

So that was a disappointment. Once up on the trapeze – with the help of others, I was doing alright but I was a bit distracted by my granddaughter having her lesson on the silks at the same time. And I realized I just wanted some space to play about, not really learning anything, so I could get comfortable with the whole thing.

Anyway I will post a mercifully short video of it so you can see what the beginning stage is. The hope being, that the ending video on July 1st will just knock your socks off with my comfort on the trapeze. Not my huge talent or expertise, but my comfort and pleasure swinging like a child.

Since then I have been doing some practicing on the bar I have at the house so I can increase my upper body strength and comfort with the learning. But, to be honest, I have not done it every day. I had some emotional upsets going on for a while and my commitment wavered.

But I have been witnessing my process and going through huge transformation at the same time. We all have actually. There are many planetary changes going on that are affecting us all on a cellular level. And they will continue for quite a while. All conscious beings are on fast forward to transformation whether they remember signing up for it or not. For me, it was no less than finally deciding whether I wanted to commit to doing my work here on Earth or stick my head back into the sand.

A week ago, in an intense transformational process, I decided I would commit to it entirely and let nothing else in my life distract me from it. I am being asked very firmly by Spirit to stop piddling around and get on with it. Now is the Time! The trapeze is not a distraction. It is a step on the journey. I want to prove in my own life that old age is not a deterrent to anything you set your heart on doing. It’s a part of my message.

So I am now back on my life’s path with determination to see it through and give what I have to give, in case someone else will find it useful. It’s a blissful feeling. I feel totally at peace.

I am also revising my book, ‘Come Home to Your Body.’ which I wrote and got published 17 years ago, before I got sick. On rereading it, I am amazed at how together I was back then and how clear I was. I lost that total clarity when I got sick and now I am reclaiming it. In the intervening years since getting well I have been very busy creating things, like the weightvest, and many other inventions, but now I am ready to reclaim the space of teaching that I had then.

Getting truly well is a long journey. That’s why I empathize so strongly with women who are feeling healthy and then they get a stupid Dexa scan and are told to live in fear their bones will collapse. I address that on my other site but now I want to address all the fears of women as they get older and they hit the negative programming in this culture.

I think I can help with that because I can see through the illusions of the programming. And I can see who is drinking the Koolaid and going down the ugly road of aging as it is laid down here in the US. I’ll be there at the Koolaid stand to say, “Wait, don’t drink that, there is another way! Gaia needs you and all your special skills and talents RIGHT NOW! You can make a difference.”

Peace and blessings always,

Pam

Self-Confidence

What does self-confidence mean to you?
Is it when you are sure you are in your right place in the world and making a difference?
When you know you are doing a great job and adding value with your work?
When all your relationships are working well and no-one is upset with you?

That third one may be your weak spot!
Why? Because you aren’t really in control of that. Other people do what they do and think what they think and may see you very differently that you see yourself. Trying to please everyone in your life is a waste of time and energy.

Our family especially can take us to the mat in a heartbeat. They often have a fixed, outdated picture of us that doesn’t relate to our present reality at all. And they often don’t want us to change, especially to move into our BIGNESS.

I noticed this past month that my self-confidence plummeted when I was not feeling my best – after eating all my suspected allergens before my allergy test.
I think that is a big snag with getting older. We may go through more times when our health is not the best and it would be a good thing to not feel emotionally down at the same time.

So I was wondering how to maintain my self-confidence on days that I felt like throwing in the towel and going back to bed. Actually I smile when I say that because I haven’t had a day in bed since I can remember 😉

Here are some ways that work for me:

My own version of the morning meditation, you’ll find the free download here -meditation. Pay special attention to the third eye chakra, where you allow yourself to see your true beauty and brilliance.

Remembering a time when I felt supremely self-confident, I knew I had just hit it out of the park, and feeling that feeling in my body, and then anchoring it in by saying something like “I am in my right place today.”

Doing something fun just for me. Walking on the beach or doing some artwork.

Doing something that I know I am successful with, it’s just easy for me.

Sending heart energy to the person who is upset with me or who I am upset with. Seeing the situation from a distance high above my head, closer to Source, and knowing that this came up to teach us both something.

Using the Tapping for Joy tool that I mention on the emotional clearing page.

Helping someone in need. Putting a smile on someone’s face.

Anything we are doing that has the word ‘self’ in front of it: self-love, self-confidence, self-esteem, self-control, is always a work in progress. Some days it will be present in our lives everywhere we turn and then the Universe brings us something new to deal with and we are back in the trenches.
We don’t get done while we are still in a body 😉
Unless we are in a cave in the Himalayas maybe.

100 day challenge check-in. I’m on my eighth day and I had difficulty with my first trapeze lesson. It was hard to get on the darn thing. To bring my legs from vertical to over my head seemed to be impossible – not a movement we practice much in this culture 😉
So I’m back to basics, strengthening the core with the exercises that I am doing here in this video. When I’m actually on the trapeze I loved it.

May you feel confident enough to move into your BIGNESS this week!

Inspiration and Opportunity!

I’m on the countdown to a big birthday at the end of the month, my 70th. I never dreamed I would get that old! That is going to be my biggest number, I’m counting downward from here on. But I’m getting ready for a big year. In fact it’s my year to get bigger in every way!

I’ve been doing a lot of work on releasing everything that doesn’t serve me. I do NOT want to carry that stuff forward! And I’ve been finding inspiration all over the place. Here is a link to a great video from Marie Forleo interviewing Adam Braun. He wrote “The Promise of a Pencil” about his mission to build schools all over the world and how one person can make a HUGE difference and get good things rolling.

At the end of the video he and Marie give a challenge, to take one step towards your own path of helping others. So yesterday I told my existing weightvest newsletter list about this new site. I’ve been hanging back waiting to be ready 😉 and now I’m stepping up to the plate. I was trying to please everyone as usual. You all know how that holds you back and keeps you stuck, don’t you??

Then another thing that has kicked me into high gear is reading “The Charge” by Brendon Burchard. He is convinced that we are all here to share our special expertise with others in this grand new world that’s being created right now that we all got a special invitation to be part of. Exciting times!!

I’m just beginning the book but he talks about people who feel caged in their lives, that’s not me, feel comfortable, that would be me, or feel charged, that would be me after I’ve finished the book. Comfortable is very seductive, you feel something is wrong, kind of blah, but you aren’t sure what it is. Well, he hit the nail on the head for me, a lack of challenge. So I’m taking some risks, sticking my head out of my comfort zone, and exploring some big new challenges.

Often in my life I have felt weird and ashamed about my need to be off on a new trail all the time. My family has rarely appreciated that 😉 But I have realized now that it is one of my talents. I don’t throw everything out of the canoe and start fresh each time, I add the important bits of new learning to the varied life that I find exciting so I’m glad to get up in the morning.

So I’m planning a 100 day challenge, starting on my birthday, the 31st. My granddaughter and I are having an aerial circus lesson. She is pretty good already, she went to camp last Summer, but I have been doing aerial yoga to get stronger and waiting for a kick in the butt to really begin. I don’t want to perform, I just want to be strong and feel invincible again. So I think it will be more than just that, I think I will challenge myself in every arena; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. I’ll see what ideas Spirit comes up with by then.

I will post a short video every ten days of the 100 to show you how I’m doing. I kind of hesitated to write that because I’ve started to follow so many people on the web with that kind of announcement and they have just drifted out of sight after a week or two. 100 days is over 3 months!!
I can and will do this, beautiful women!
Yep, and now I have to 🙂

If anyone wants to join me in their own 100 day challenge let me know in the comments section below and we can all root for you.

I just made a free morning meditation mp3 for you all and put it on the site here. I do it myself every morning with daily variations but this will be a basic version for connecting as a channel between Heaven and Earth.

So I will send this post out as the first newsletter but it will always be on the blog as well and I’ll put up an RSS feed button as soon as I figure out how.

Go watch that video, it will inspire your day, and tomorrow morning you can start your day with the meditation mp3.

Big hugs,
Pam

Got My Tests Back

I went back to the functional doctor for the results of my tests this week. It was good news really. I did have antibodies to most of my body tissues, but at a very low level. My pancreas is about kaput, putting out little or no insulin, but I knew that.

My thyroid test was unclear because of the thyroid meds I take but I have halved them since I found out they were not good for me overall so in a few weeks I will test that again. The 4 stage saliva test of my adrenals was in the normal range. But my levels of all of the sex hormones was off the charts high. I have been taking bio-identicals for about ten years and obviously too much. So I stopped using the cream and we will test every few months to check the levels. Then my vitamin D was low to mid-range so I must be having trouble absorbing the D3 caplets. I’ll get back to spending more time in the sun, then I’ll get the very best kind of Vitamin D as nature intended 😉

I won’t get the results of the food sensitivity test for a couple more weeks but I’m on the strict diet and feeling better every day.

So, overall, I feel lucky to have had the tests. I will stay on the diet so I can prevent any more auto-immune diseases from taking over my body. I’m doing so much better on the diet anyway and I have eroded my resistance (with tapping) to eating meat at every meal. I even added liver for breakfast. If you’d told me that 2 months ago I would have laughed and thought you were crazy ;-).

And I have had a huge AHA! about osteoporosis. Apparently the link between bone loss and gluten sensitivity is that some of the villi in the intestines are specifically designed to absorb calcium and other minerals, and gluten sensitivity wears down the villi to little nubs so they can’t do their job. So you can take huge doses of calcium until the cows come home and it will just get deposited into bone spurs and joints because the body doesn’t know what to do with it.

I had been trying to find the connection between diet and bone loss for a long time. I know it has a lot to do with our pH, but it has increased so fast and in younger and younger women all the time, so I knew there was another piece to the puzzle. Truly the diet most people are eating now is killing us in ugly ways. There are way more poisons and toxins to be found in processed food than real nutrition. I won’t even get started on that in this post 😉

If anyone has already got auto-immune diseases and wants to stop getting any more these are the most important tests. I might have missed some because they didn’t apply to me. But the tests and the functional doctor are very expensive and most don’t take insurance so you could just get started with the most complete book on the diet, The Paleo Approach, Reverse Auto-Immune Disease and Heal Your Body, by Sarah Ballantyne. I highly recommend it.

So, good luck with that journey if you choose to take it. And now I will get off the topic of auto-immune diseases for a while and let you know how I’m doing with it in a few months.

May everything you put in your mouth serve your highest good,

Pam

A New Art Form

I recently started doing a new kind of art, intuitive art. You don’t have a plan, you just start with a blank canvas, use all kinds of tools to get paint on the blankness and see what comes out of it. It’s a bit scary actually. I realize that I prefer to have a plan and a goal.

It also can get muddy and busy if you overdo it and I like paintings that are clear and bright. So it is a stretch for me. I decided that I would put the paintings on the site in the sidebars for each page as I do them. That gives me a motive to continue. Otherwise I would look at the paintings and not know what to do with them, not really liking them enough to hang them up.

Begin again fw lg

I think I will get used to the new style pretty soon. I’ve already incorporated the watercolor wash techniques and effects that I love for the backgrounds. Anyway it is a chance to stretch and play. I’ve been on the computer too much lately.

On Monday I am going to migrate this site to replace the old one. I’ve done one page on every topic and I will continue as fast as I can. Lots to do but I only like to work on it when I’m happy otherwise it doesn’t come out right.

Oh, I’m on the strict Auto-immune diet now, cooking up a storm, and it’s going well. But I am realizing how much easier it was for me to be happy on a whole bunch of fruit and other hidden sugars. I was a happy little addict 😉 I’m turning into a fat burner now and, sooner or later, I will be happy because I’m so darned healthy.

Enjoy something new until next time,

Pam

Eating ALL the Allergens

Well, since the last post I saw Dr Flannery and he ordered all the tests he needs to make a diagnosis. Unfortunately I had to backtrack and spend last week eating all the allergens on the test list every day so that my body would manufacture the antibodies to show up on the test.

So, being addicted to my allergens, as most people are, I couldn’t just eat the one teaspoon a day required, I had to eat more. Why? Because they were in the house!! So I reaffirmed my addictions and got to see clearly what they were doing to me.

By the end of the week I was pretty much a basketcase! In the mornings I couldn’t see clearly to read my email. Having conversations I forgot some words and couldn’t quite reach others. I had brain fog and negative thinking. I had huge ups and downs with my bloodsugar numbers and I didn’t have any motivation or energy. I even got a headache and I haven’t had those for years.

It was like a zombie took over my body. When I looked in the mirror my face reminded me of people in hospitals. It made me realize how bad hospital is for people. They give you all the crappy food that people shouldn’t eat even when they are well and turn them all into invalids.

So the turnaround day was Saturday. I’m on the really strict version of the diet, no allergens at all and I am already recovering. I’ve often thought that is why most diets work, not from what you are eating but from what you are leaving out.

I think the experience was really good for me because the results were so intense. When we eat allergens all the time without a break we can compensate and not notice what they are doing to us. So now I am perfectly clear what dairy, grains, caffeine, chocolate, nightshades, and nuts do to me.

When my leaky gut heals then I can start to reintroduce the possible allergens one at a time and see if my body can handle them but many people have decided to stay on this strict diet for ever because the results are so spectacular.

And I got a new book just in time to guide me through this. It just came out and it is a masterpiece of facts and science on the Autoimmune diet. It’s as big as a phone book and tells you much more than you ever wanted to know about the entire topic. It’s ‘The Paleo Approach, Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body’ by Sarah Ballantyne.

So I’ve got my book, I’m cooking up a storm, staying prepared so I don’t stray. I’ll see the doc when my first tests come back but the allergy test won’t be done for another two weeks.

I know nobody really cares about me per se, you don’t even know me. I’m doing this blog in case someone finds themself in the same position of needing to make a huge lifestyle change. I find blogs very helpful in times of change. So huge blessings to anyone who reads this and I will keep reporting back.
