PCOS & Sometimes it's not what you eat so much as what you're not.
My hair's been falling out by the handfuls the past few months. Trying to not be mortified about it as I pick up each strand on the dark bathroom tile and dark bathroom rug. I've had high testosterone for years. Doctors have only said, "that'll... Read more
9 YEAR SPARKVERSARY!
Where has time gone? I was hoping to be at goal by now (again). LOL. I'm stuck on 105 lbs lost (not a horrible thing, mind you! *pats on back*).
Trying to shake it up again, so I started to weight train...yesterday (so that'd be once now)... Read more
Detoxing: Not For the Faint of Heart
I know my liver's whacked, but do I really understand HOW whacked? No. Because if I did, I wouldn't have succumbed to wanting flavor on my dry Greek salad (sans feta, the best part/flavor: the more aged, the more bacteria, the more flavor) at Pa... Read more
Was I Complaining About My Dogs? & SIBO Conference & New SIBO Test
Now I can't stop huggin' on them (even if Coco puked and I had to unstuff her bed manually so I could wash it; and really I have to thank her for doing it on the tile, not rug), ran into the forest after a stray dog, pulled out pillow stuffing f... Read more
Mike Mutzel Podcasts Are My Fave
I'm on FB more than here, ya'all (yeah, I'm Southern today). But I don't blog my life like I do here. I'm always sharing Mike Mutzel podcasts over there (if you're also on FB, let me know so we can wave). I encourage you to check him out as he... Read more
Hormone Update and May Cholesterol Results
Paleo doc didn't really say much. He raised my estriol balance in my progesterone cream is all. He again grabbed my fatty parts and told me the hormones responsible:
lower belly: cortisol
upper belly: can't remember (I'... Read more
I Could Use Hormone Help
In learning about the gut, I missed the chapters on hormones. I kinda refuse to learn about them; have no energy for it and my memory doesn't serve me :P I got a bunch of blood labs last week, and the results are rolling in. Waiting for choles... Read more
Gut 101-the Effect of Foods by Dr. Tom O'Bryan
Dr. Tom has gotten huge in the gluten/gut world since I met him a few years ago when he was going from city to city with his gut speech. Sean Croxton, Underground Wellness, showed him how to market himself/his message so he could reach more peo... Read more
Recovering from Vacation
I am tired, and am still recovering from our 5 days in rainy So. Cal. This is the first vacay since the vacay from hell three years ago (which was ... Read more
First Treatment on FODMAPs for Fibro
I'm SO upset SP! Apparently you can't start a blog entry in the morning and complete it in the evening. After pushing the Post Blog Entry button it promptly disappeared. I should have copied it before pushing. I should have written it in a Word ... Read more
I don't blame mom, I blame mom's biome.
I struggle with sugar addiction apparently (in denial because I ate so well, but the urge doesn't let up!), and in the throws of stress tend to want potato chips, Starburst, and ice-cream (like a recovering alcoholic I'll say that I've been two ... Read more
BINGO! Cause of Fibro is SIBO!
I've had enough testing the last few years to KNOW this doctor is talking about me and my experience.
Low tryptophan? Check!
Low serotonin? Check!
Low melatonin? Check!
Gut dysbiosis? Check! and on an on.
If you have fibro, but... Read more
SIBO and FIBRO treatment (FODMAPs +)
I have been seeing a paleo doctor (occasionally). It's a "boutique" service where I "get" to pay an extra $2k a year for personal attention. You know, like you idealistically believe you'll get from an allopathic doctor? Not to complain. I hav... Read more
FAVE gut interviews today only
They're free today, so watch if you can. Or buy them (so nice they're free for a bit). I'm out the door for an 8 hour drive to see old doctor or I'd catch you up to date. Every time I come here to document weight, I say I'm going to write a blog... Read more
