Things immediately improve. I loose my mood swings altogether and I've started to finally drop some of the weight I put on in pregnancy. My memory is starting to come back, although it's no where near where it used to be. My hubby and I don't fight all the time anymore and life is slowly getting back to normal.
Things still aren't the same as before, and they probably never will be. I've noticed that when I do revert to my old habits and eat more wheat I feel bloated and without as much energy. Milk makes me mood swing worse. I have no idea why. Both the Eat for your Type diet and Dr. Young say that goats milk is alright. And so I sit anxiously and wait for my overdue goat to have her babies (written on 3/24) and pray that she delivers them safely. I want milk, I want yogurt, I want ice cream, I want cheese...I want dairy!
I'm still seeing Dr. Young since he has an ongoing program. I think he believes that no one is ever fully healed (which I think could be considered correct) Our visits are about once a month now though which is a relief since driving the two hours down and then two back for a half hour appt. was really getting to me. He switched my supplements though recently. Anyone ever heard of superfood? He told me to drink it for breakfast with a V8. Now I'm not a big fan of V8 to begin with but I figured I'd try. His nurse says it tastes like grass, his receptionist says it tastes like hay. I'm officially here to tell you that I'd rather go out and eat hay with my goats than drink superfood! I looked at the ingredients, they are as follows: Spirulina Blue-green algae, Chlorella broken-cell algae, Barley, alfalfa and wheat grasses (and I thought he wanted me to avoid wheat ???) Purple Dulse Seaweed, beet root, spinach leaf, rose hips, oat straw, orange and lemon peels (maybe if there was more of this it would taste better), in a base of non-fermentable Saccharomyces Cervisiae yeast.
How's that for a mouthful? And he wants me to drink this?? For breakfast??
Okay to be honest...I tried it...I gave it a fair shot. The first day I swigged that sucker down as fast as I could without breathing. It tasted awful but it was doable. Second day...I swig that stuff down about halfway and my stomach starts churning. I finish it and sit sick for the next hour. Third day...I take one slug...It's gone....I quit!
So the last Dr. appt. I tell him I'm done with "that junk" because I can't keep it down. His response..."I drink it every morning, but you're doing it wrong. You have to take a gulp and swish it around your mouth for at least ten seconds so that it mixes with your saliva and then swallow it. Then you can swig the rest and not have a problem with it. You do that to let your stomach know what's coming and to prepare it. I've been drinking it for ten years and even if I drink it too fast it feels like a mule has kicked me in the stomach"
Let me get this straight Dr. you not only want me to drink it but you want me to taste it in my mouth for ten seconds first? then chug? How is that going to "prepare" my stomach? Other than making it start churning faster. and another thing...You've been drinking this for that long and you still have a problem drinking it? Gee, you want to go natural medicine...I'd say that's your body telling you that it DOESN'T like it! That was a week ago....I still haven't been brave enough to try it again...any volunteers?? Please...somebody...anybody...just not me....
