I’m excited to announce nothing is seriously wrong with me or my thryoid; however, I did learn I’m off balance hormonally, which affects more than 10% of women. Usually without them knowing. I will be taking some natural, non-synthetic medicine and see how that balances me out. The verdict is: my thyroid is sluggish. With all my hard work on diet and exercise and me working more on less stressing and more yoga, I believe the balancing out with natural medicine will help put me where I want to be.
Day 4, I am doing really well. Overall, I feel more in control of my choices by doing gluten-free, and am not finding myself eating carbs when I really don’t need to. Tonight we are going out to dinner, and I already plan on having fish with veggies as a side with water.
The biggest thing is, I feel less bloated than I have in over a month. Perhaps gluten-intolerant?
Continuing on with the detox, 26 more days…
So how do you know if detox is for you?
Are you experiencing symptoms of:
-adrenal fatigue (looking for caffeine to get you “up” and feeling highs and lows mood wise throughout the day
-not seeing weight loss results
-believe you might possibly have a food allergy, such as gluten intolerance *do you bloat after eating normal carbohydrates?
-notice you do not have much motivation throughout the day
-frequent headaches throughout the day
-gas and frequent intestinal disorders
-constipation, irregular bowel movements
These are all signs of toxins in your system.
