Day 1 of naturopath diet and 5% challenge

Saturday, February 23, 2013

Good morning sparkers! Well had to figure out when I am to take all these supplements. Only 1 has to be 2 hrs after one, so that's not too bad. One OMG lol took it and wow as soon as I put water in my mouth huge garlic taste yuk but thats okay no worse than my B vit one.

Figured I would have my GF oats, today as it is normal for me and not mix up too much in this belly. I can feel the supplements etc in my belly even though I drank a lot of water.

Have my lunch and supper figured out which is good and trying to figure the rest of the week. Going to go through the freezer to decide what to use for suppers and to cook some meat up for adding to my salads for protein. Also going to buy some nuts to add to my greek yog, and fruit.

This is doable just have to get some ideas on what to make. I also will take my supplements after I eat as this time was before and aren't sitting well on my belly. None say before after or with so guess no issues.

Had a good walk with Allie this am,she was pretty good and wasn't slippery. Heard we are to get more snow tomorrow so will go for another nice walk later. I may do an upper body today or wait for tomorrow.

Will have no problem getting my water in with all this stuff I have to take. That will be good for challenge and my body.

Going to dd today, hubby is going to put her new light in over her dining room table. it will be some work as something isn't wired right. But that's one thing off her list, daughter in law has 2 things on her list, and we still have dads basement and our other bathroom and my shelf in kitchen. Busy man but I don't remind him of it all or will deter him. lol

Okay gotta go figure some recipes so clearing off the table. HUGS and cya later.

    sometimes supplements upset your tummy at the start, also taking out foods may cause a detox effect, it will pass, glad things are getting worked out, will give you a call on Monday

Not too bad and not invasive first naturopath apointment

Friday, February 22, 2013

Okay let's hope I don't lose this blog. Last one had some written and poof!

Well I really didn't learn anything I didn't know but know that I will have help to get my internal flora regulated. I knew it needed it etc I have learned a lot of natural stuff for past 10 years or more. So nice lady, listened, read, asked pertinent questions and gave good suggestions.
Surprisingly enough she didn't do a food sensitivity testing as she wants my gut fixed first. I agree and what she gave me is plenty for me to learn. lol
Since one of you work in this field, and a few others use naturoapthy I will write what I was given.
Gluten free
No deli meats
preferably grass fed beef ( won't happen right now with the price of all the supplements! LOL)
limit starches to 2 /day
limiat fruit to 2/day
no added sugar ( check ingredient lists)
1 serv of greek yogurt if want /day
no other dairy
2 cups of green leafy veggies and at least 1 cup of other veggies

Nutra sea fish oil ( 48$ bottle!) ( was taking omega 3 but she suggests this kindI used to take it but got too $$ so here we go for now)
vit d 4,000 Iu /day ( I was doing 2,000)
B50 1 day ( was allready)
Glucosamine MSM 1,000 mg 2xday ( was taking but a lower dose and not with MSM)
Biogest 1 every meal
Allisyn 1 3xday
Multi strain probiotic 2 2x day

So okay I bought the last 3 from her for a tune of 83 dollars. I will do all this and try my darndest. So far I haven't eaten cos don't know what to make and am not really hungry. I have all the making for salad and protein and we went and bought GF oats and a hot cereal too.

Hubby well..........he was frustrated that I bought the stuff there, He didn't mind that I had to get it, but that she sells it there makes him feel she is out to make more money. Well I thought it is same price as health food store so more convienent. Bit of a tiff there and the fact that I am willing to take this stuff but hate the dr meds. Well one of these doesn't make my body ill so that I have to take this to counteract that. I found it funny cos he has been to naturopath before.
So a few heated moments were I took my new adjusted hearing aid out! LOL Then he was fine and suggested going to get the fish oil and some oatmeal. anyway will be an experience.
He and dad are at the legion now so is nice and quiet, no tv, no talking while I am trying to do something. Showed her the one book from library and she agreed it was good, the other ( with the charts anjay) she wasn't familiar with. So I go back in 3wks to see how my gut is and pain. said some stuff can go in 3 wks, add diff, and gf for at elast 3 months, then said that probably add curcimim.
One thing she did ask would I get on the table, and on my belly. Well wow pain to lay flat but got there, she pressed where I was commenting on and I said just hurts then BANG one specific spot the sizeof a quarter etc. wow said do it again and yes same. She said that is sciatica then... but figure it is only inflamed around the nerve not the nerve so why it feels diff. anyway offered me a B12 shot I sai NO she said if I say I am good at it... that it has helped a lot with sciatica... I said no not today but will think of it. My son has b12 injections but he isnt afraid of needles. LOL so will see. No idea the cost either.
Well of to finish reading the first part of the book then the recipes. I had chicken out but it is still froz. so hubby can have leftovers, me well I will find something.
So starting all the supplements and such tomorrow along with the 5% challenge.
Best go as I need a sweater on, the wind is bitter and we have drywall missing at the top fof the closet waiting to do this bathroom HAHA. it will get done.
Okay have a great eve and here I go!

    ROTFLMFO @ hearing aid!

I *really* pray you get some relief from all of this... you've pretty much decribed my regime... I take all of the same supplements, with the exception of the Glucosamine. I was taking it prior to taking the SierraSil, and then just got to the point where I realized I just didn't need it... the SierraSil did a better job. I took Glucosamine for years with no real change to my knees and hands... six months on SierraSil, and I was a new (an improved!) woman, LOL!

The key really is consisitency and persistence. Don't give up and don't give in on the bad days (and there will likely be some). As the body detoxifies/balances you can feel worse more than you feel better for a time.

    Sounds promising/
B12 is good for nerve related problems, you may not need a "shot". You can get it from fish, beef, lamb, eggs, cheese etc.

Have a look at this link or go on the internet to investigate further Cinders!

    I was able to get just about the same info from my chiropractor as you did from your naturopath. The difference is my insurance pays for the exam except for a $10 copay for each visit. I do have to pay for my supplements, but exams, x-rays, physical therapy, massage are all paid for. Something to think about and maybe check into.

It sounds like she really listened to you.

And I also predict that many SP women will be out tomorrow checking to see if they need a hearing aid.

    Wow that sure is a lot of information to take in. I sure hope it works for you. And cheers to you for taking out your hearing aid. I had to laugh at that one-it was cute. Those B-12 shots are not bad plus they give you energy. Keep us posted on how you are doing!

Wednesday eve

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Evening all!
Hope you had a good day no matter what your weather was. Here it was dull, dreary, damp and pouring rain which stopped around 4 or so. But depsite that I had a good day. I got some stuff done early, and then decided to go back to bed. Allie passed the test with flying colours!!! lol I left her laying on the couch and went up, she did come to the stairs which we still have blocked off and cried I said to hubby, eeek she is not on couch, so we laid there and listened ( geesh like a baby in their room LOL0 and didn't hear anything. When we came down later she was asleep on couch. GOOD GIRL!!! so after I tidy up better, and make sure things that she may chew are up we are going to leave the kennel door open one night. Not too bad as some nights she goes in herself so hubby will just go up to bed and leave the stairs blocked hope that she will cry in the am if she wakes and gets out. but will see. our other dog wasnt crated this long and we need to get her used to it as we aren't kenneling at the trailer.
Made my naturopathic apointment. march 11 was the earliest. small world again. lol asked me my addy when I said it she said oh I live on that street. ( receptionist not the naturopath) I said well I am the one with the puppy OH I am the one with the weinemar and greyhound LOL too funny. So after 10 years of wanting to go, I made the apt. thanks Anjay! LOL
We went to the veggie and fruit store. got a cantaloupe and bananas, rest was veggies. so much cheaper 5 bags for 21dollars. yes!
Going to go and do a bit, been really trying to alternate do abit, walk a bit, sit a bit. But since supper my back is really sore under my shoulder blades again. strange... lower back yea sore but noticing it up higher. oh well such is life.
think I will go read the new library book anti inflammation diet and recipe book. see what it has to say. new than the last one I got out. now just waiting for the new edition of the first one.
Sure Allie will want a walk in bit, not raining, not too cold so if it isnt slippery and she listens perhaps we can go for a bit. she is now eating mud she finds where the snow metls, am wondering if come spring we have a digger on our hands. I hope not!!! but reemember when we got her she would pull up the grass by the roots well still does under the snow!
Okay enough puter for now. cya HUGS

Thinking and knowing

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Hmm thinking and knowing 2 very different things in my book. I woke up this am thinking I KNOW I have to take action.

For some reason I looked up a FB person that I knew years ago, why she came into my head out of the blue no idea. So found her, and she looks like she used to , tad older but the same.

Got me thinking ( yes Caz omg she's thinking again eeek LOL ) I never thought I would be like this at 56. By like this is so unable to move, so sore, and also feeling so much older than I am. Mentally and physically. Now a lot of that is mind cos there are tons of people that are way way worse off than I that I have met here, and in real life, that I have taken care of etc.not all my people that I took care of were elderlly, yes 95% but not all. The young 32 year old bedridden cos of MS, a 53 year old that had a ton of things wrong with her who has since passed. But I wasn't getting morbid, actually it worked the opposite way today.

I thought, everyday I wake up, thank heavens, but not able to stand straight, barely able to get my socks on, let alone the dratted winter boots, and today I thought there has to be something that can be done. SO even though my back and my arthritis may not well lets say won't get better, there are some things that I can do to make it not as bad, and not come as fast. I know some, I don't know others.

One I want to do and have for while but so far noone has been able to help me. My sister in law refuses to incase she gives me a wrong exercise, I myself can only figure out some and then a few have hurt bad. So today I am going to ask my massge guy, who he knows thtat can help me make a home exercises that won't hurt my back. I don't want to go to physio with just the reg. "physio" stuff, I want an exercise routine.. sigh. I am willing help me! LOL

Also today will be a healthy eating day. We have barely any veggies in the house, and today daves the veggie store get their stuff so great timing. Later after I go to massage I will go get veggies. I also made a list of recipes and such. I also had a chat with hubby which was semi productive for me. lol

So today, I hope hubby is better, he slept till noon yesterday and didnt get dressed. Either way I can take myself to massage and the store no problem I can still drive lol I am thinking he will be better as he wants to go see about a diff cell phone electronics may make his belly better LOL

Also I have to stop at the library as the other anti inflammatory book is in and one I am reading is due back.

A full day today, sun, cold wind, pain, tightness but I am able to walk, move and decide to make the right CHOICES. it is all about our CHOICES and that is one think I dont have to think about I KNOW that.

HUGS and as per my progress not perfection team...

JUST for today I will do my best!

    I have learned some very valuable things from massage therapists I have seen in the past. I hope your massage therapist was able to give you some assistance in putting together an exercise program. Take care!
