As I continue to go on my journey, I find out more and more. I have many food sensibilities and need to watch everything I eat. Living my life suffering in pain most of the time didn't leave me much time to explore new things, now I'm loving it. I can finally lead a normal life at this stage.
I used to love eating all kinds of beans because I know that they stabilize sugar. But I started having so many attacks with migraines after I would eat them so I decided to do a test on myself. I finally realized the only beans I could have were green beans. Mariola, my naturopath I’ve mentioned in my previous posts, told me the reason I can eat green beans with no problem is because they have less protein. Too much protein is a problem since I cannot digest a lot at the same time.
I love eggs and therefore was also eating lots of them but I eliminated them and feel much better. No wonder I needed to take digestive enzymes. Every time I did tests in the hospital, they saw nothing even though I felt so sick to the point that I would get pancreatitis. I thought it was the tiny bit of alcohol that I had with my hubby on the weekend but as I understand, too much protein in my system at the same time is a disaster for me! I need to eat small amounts all day. Which is hard to do because I need to have my food with me, but I make the effort because it is worth it!
The other day, I did an ultrasound at my doctor’s office to check my liver and gallbladder; everything was great. Now everything is ruled out and I know it's my digestion and portions. I did tests about five years ago, and I don't have celiac but if I continued to eat they way I used to with gluten and chemicals I would end up with it. I have a sensitive digestive system and as long as I follow the rules with a cheat day once in a while, I'm great.
These are my rules:
- No gluten
- Only eat sugar in natural form
- Lots of greens
- As much organic as possible
- Digestive enzymes and probiotics
- Proper food combining (don’t mix carbs with protein)
- Toxic free skincare and make up
- Toxic free cleaning products
- Stress management
Following these rules, I can live life like I never before!
Cheers to ageing!
