After returning to my Doctor with severe Fibromyalgia symptoms I was prescribed a three week cleanse followed by a two week drainage regimen. This is the first time I have ever seriously practiced an elimination diet and after six weeks I am very surprised in the improvement of so many of my symptoms. I understand the food plan is basically used for anyone trying to pinpoint an allergy. I will continue following the food plan but am gradually reintroducing some foods to test for sensitivities. So far I seem to be sensitive to wheat/gluten products.
Overall my mood and energy improved and I have been able to add light weights to my exercise routine. The side effect of dropping 11 pounds was a bonus too.
I will update on my progress as I continue on my goal to a return to health.
