I am sorry I’ve been neglecting this blog, but I’ve been busy with my metaphysical blog “On Angels’ Wings Productions” and my blood sugar has been doing so much better for awhile that I got lazy. That being said, my life-long bad digestive system has TOTALLY mutinied during peri-menopause/menopause (known meno symptom) and I’m desperate for digestive relief!
A co-worker gave me this book, "Eat Dirt", as we are both going through digestive hell. I have had digestive problems since birth, but now at 50…with meno changes…my entire GI tract has muntinied and I can't take it anymore. I'm already a gluten free vegan, but that's not helping. I'm still reading Dr. Axe's book but am making changes immediately. I found this AUTHENTIC sauerkraut (just cabbage, water, and salt) that hopefully has natural probiotics in it (pricey…so I'll start making my own) and I got this bottle of non-dairy probiotic pills. I am going organic, begrudgingly…as I'm cheap, and phasing out conventional/chemical laden food. I'm also detoxing my cleaning supplies, beauty supplies, etc. We are toxic cesspools if we're not using organic, natural products everywhere! This book is eye opening. I do need to find organic whiskey though. Ha! I took his test and scored very highly likely that I have leaky gut issues. I'm also learning how to muscle test (kinesiology) myself to see what I should and shouldn't ingest or use. #leakygut #digestion #vegansofinstagram #vegan #wholistic #holistichealth #holistic #draxe #drjoshaxe #toxins #ibs #colitis #crohnsdisease #autoimmunedisease #multiplesclerosis #parkinsonsdisease #als #rheumatoidarthritis #celiacdisease #thyroid #hypothyroidism #diabetes #hypoglycemia
I’m still reading the book above that my kind co-worker gave me, but it’s CLEAR to me that my entire system is toxic and that I definitely have leaky gut. I am now making the effort to clean up my innards and surroundings. A new symptom appeared tonight, burping up strong acid, along with the constant really bad gas, pain, bloating, constipation, going too much, etc. The holistic doctor I saw years ago said that 99% of hypoglycemics have major digestive problems. He used kinesiology on me at the time and my intestines and liver were a mess. He put me on a very limited diet and strong cleansing supplements, which did help a lot. But, with time, it seems I’ve regressed again…..and worse. I highly suggest everyone with autoimmune issues or blood sugar issues read “Eat Dirt”. He’s not vegan, but you can adapt most of his recommendations to vegan options.
