Anyway, so we keep doing what we're doing. I have a feeling all those "warming" foods my acupuncturist used to tell me about, and probably those herbs he tried to give me would have helped. Why am I so resistant? Anyway, so we'll keep on with the liver detox and the thyroid and adrenal support. Hopefully I will see a difference in another 10 weeks. Ai yai yai!
I'm also going to stay grain free for a while - my allergies have been so much better without grain. I already know wheat causes a major attack, but I had some allergy issues as well as bloating when I ate properly prepared quinoa last week. I guess I have to say I'm feeling better without grains. Gluten is also really bad for thyroid, as is soy and Goitrogens. I can have goitrogens cooked, but not raw or even fermented. No cabbage in my immediate future! But unfortunately, no peaches or pears and those were the fruits I have been eating this week. Grrrr. I'm also going to start taking fermented cod liver oil. Yes, I will probably gag. And I'm sure to share it all with you, so you're welcome!
Anyway, back to the presentation. I guess I need to be eating more things from the sea - seaweed, fish, shellfish, sea salt. Coconut oil and butter is good - probably why I'm supposed to eat so much of it? You can also oil up your feet with coconut or sesame oil before bed and put socks on them. Not sure how that works, but it's supposed to help.
I'm so looking forward to fermented cod liver oil.
