A (hopefully) short update - estrogen dominance
Sunday, August 26, 2012
OK, so I've been reading myself into an information coma. I read 1 1/2 books + tons of info on the internet and have rendered myself useless. I have so much information that I am overwhelmed & don't know where to begin.
So I went to my doctor... who knows NOTHING!!! She was NO help.
Out of sheer desperation, I called the dr. where I had my thermography done. He's a naturopathic doctor. OMGosh, I LOVE him!!! He was amazing.
So, he figured out that not only am I estrogen dominant, but that I have trouble digesting & using oils (it doesn't get to my brain), and I have a yeast problem in my intestines. But my other organs, systems & hormones are perfect!
I've got a crazy regiment of vitamins & supplements to straighten out my hormones, kill the yeast & help digest & use fats. So far so good. I can do this except that I've been really tired the past 2 days. Maybe it's all the dead yeast floating in my system. lol. I am so excited because the dr. told me that the little pooch that I have around my belly is a combo of estrogen & yeast. He says that once I get rid of the problems, that my belly will go away. I'm so excited!!!
And the very best part is that he says that in 2-3 months when I go for my next thermography, he expects it to be clear. No more "suspicious area of neovascularity". I friggin' hope so!
I'm so glad I went to see him but I didn't really get to ask all the questions that I need to - like about lifestyle changes: going organic, avoiding certain ingredients & products. ??? I'll ask next time.
In other news, I lose my unemployment tomorrow. Yep, back to work. UGH!! Set up is tomorrow. School starts Tuesday. I finish up my 10 day trial ) 3 days to go. (I did the last 7 days of school in May.) Then I decide if I want to keep my new job. Derka-der ~ of course I'll keep it. It's an extra hour & therefore more money. I really don't like it but frankly, who does like their job?? It's running the cash register during lunch at the high school. I miss my little elementary school job already! I loved working with the little kids. I'll get used to it eventually. It'll be OK.
Did I mention that DH had to take a pay cut? Yeah.
My oldest will be a senior this year. Where does the time go? My baby is in 6th grade. (Last year in elementary school before moving to the Jr/Sr High School.) My birthday was Friday & I'm feeling old.
So much for the short update, right? We'll blame the bottle of wine. Did I mention it was chocolate wine? MmMmMm!
My zumba instructor changed her Monday/Thursday class to Monday/Saturday. Dunno how practical that will be. I gotta get back into the habit of exercising regularly. I've been doing great on Monday & that's about it. Once I start back to work, it'll get harder. I start earlier on this new job & it cuts into my early morning workout time. I need to figure out if I want to exercise in the afternoon or what. ???
OK, it's late & I need to sleep. Good night SP world. Thanks for listening.
