Hope you are having a rockin' day! Besides the rain, I'm feeling a bit better today. I was having a major self-sabotaging day yesterday! Not good! I'm in the midst of getting my ND school applications completed and let that little voice inside that said "you're no good, you are not going to make it"take over and drag me really down! I didn't even want to talk about it with the hubby and he was feeling at a loss! Finally, I let it all out to him at 6:20 in the morning and it felt super good to recognize it and release it! Applying to get into naturopathic school is more scary for me right now than exciting because I'm following my doubt, rather than the passion and belief in myself. I've done this my entire life..but I plan to stop that NOW! It's time I realize I can do this and anything else I want to do in this short life. So....
I CAN DO ANYTHING...and SO CAN YOU!!
I feel better already! Aren't uplifting messages better in a rainbow of colors? LOL!
I was just checking out my weekly email from Kris at Crazy Sexy life and on her love list was a site called The Daily Love. The site sends you a love message each morning..how cool is that? You can never get enough love!
Usually I'm in the office for prolo or PRP for my knees but they have been strong (YAY!!) and so I finally decided to tackle my aunt flo problems. He tested me in many different areas and discovered that I have too much xenoestrogen in my system and my liver doesn't recognize this estrogen mimicker. Yes, these suckers can bind specifically to estrogen receptors and cause a whole heap of disasters with the reproductive system and much more.
Xenoestrogens are, according to natural news, are foreign or not-made-in- nature estrogens that are found in pesticides, many plastics, dairy products, meats, and scented products such as laundry soaps.
The doc and I had a talk and he was telling me just how bad xeno's are! One of the main xenoestrogen he was chit chatting about was phthalates which are also called plasticizers.
Then he got onto the topic of cling-wrap. Yes, I do use it from time to time and I also have plastic lunch containers. Because it's so think and pliable..lots of chemicals in there! Plus if it at all gets warm this is when it releases all the bad demons into the food it is touching.
This was a huge wake up call for me and the plastics around my house! They are just no good even if they don't get warm! I'm planning on placing an order for some better options.
What do you use for lunches and on-the-go containers?
As for the doc, he placed me on a protocol of some natural goodies to get my hormones back on track and to help my liver rid itself of the toxins it is holding onto.
The goodies in Unda # 243 for hepatic (liver) function
Sarge said that I might notice a difference on my first cycle or, if I'm pretty toxic, it may take 2-3 cycles. I'll keep you posted! PS This is my protocol after the doc did a bunch of testing on me so please don't start taking these if aunt flo is driving you nuts. Check with your physician/ND first!
Have an awesome weekend! I actually have very few plans and I'm A-ok with that! I'm doing my final blueberry picking tomorrow (this time I am actually going to freeze some!) and on Sunday we might go to Grouse Mountain, other than that I am just going to enjoy being at home for once:) Maybe get a little crazy in the kitchie??? Well, of course!! XOXO
