Taking control of my health

9 Aug

Well, after months (okay to be honest 2 years) of major ups and downs health-wise, talking to Dr’s that didn’t listen to me in the way I wanted, I decided to go to my naturopath.  Now, it’s not that I don’t trust my Dr. however I do know myself, and know that the issues I was having were pointing to hormone issues.  Her response?  I could possibly be pre-menopausal (seriously? I mean okay I’m 36, but isn’t that TOO YOUNG?) and I just have to deal with what’s happening.  I didn’t like that answer! would you?  I’m sorry, night sweats, major mood swings, weight gain, hair loss and more – that’s just not fun!

So I talked to my naturopath, we went over many things, did blood tests and a saliva test.  Results?  My levels are that of a post-menopausal woman and I have a MAJOR candida overgrowth.  So, I now have some learning to do and some diet changing to make.  All for a good cause, my health!

The issue? have you ever taken a tincture?  it’s somewhat unpalatable  downright horrible! I take 2 droppers, twice a day. I also have adrenal support pills (those are fine!)  Now it’s the diet part, any input is appreciated because I’m somewhat lost there.  I also have joined “myfitnesspal” http://www.myfitnesspal.com/ on my trusty iPhone.  Seriously, I’m kinda in love with this app.  It helps me track my food and activity (or lack thereof).  And the best little part of it? it has a barcode scanner this makes it so easy to track foods!
