Immune System Health

My health is NOT your responsibility. I will NOT blame you when I get sick and in return you should NOT blame me when you get sick. Its my job to take care of my immune system.
The choices I make daily. How I take care of my body. The foods I eat. The products I put on my body. The things I breathe in. How much sleep I get. It all matters and either supports all of my body systems in doing their job well or hinders them.

The Next Step- Organic, Pasture Raised and Grass Fed

I learned years ago that If  you can’t afford to buy everything organic, do what you can to choose organic meat. Think about it. Whatever the animals eat, you eat. The grains, the glysophate, the chemicals, the high omega 6’s, etc.. get passed on to the consumer. Makes sense to me, but for the longest time, I just couldn't stomach the cost. Now I have. I just placed my first order of  grass-fed, grass-finished, and pasture raised organic meat.

Mold

Mold. Do you know it? Is it something you've ever given much thought to? Unfortunately, I can't seem to get it out of my mind, or my home right now. It's my reality. 
Through a series of strategically ordered tests, I learned my cortisol levels were way beyond normal. That was the first red flag. Once I tested my home and found a high mold count, urine testing was done to check my mycotoxin levels. Unfortunately, the test came back showing crazy high numbers. My current diagnosis is that my body is in distress due to a mycotoxin called ochratoxin A. My doctor’s words to me were: “Your body is operating in survival mode.”

Estrogen Reset

Estrogen Reset

I recently found out I have high levels of estrogen stored in my body and eating a diet rich in fiber helps to flush (ie poop) out the excess. Too much estrogen can wreak havoc on one’s body and I am tired of being tired. I am weary of the mood swings. I am ready to shed the extra pounds that keep piling on. 


So, since I want my body to function optimally, I plan to listen to my doctor and increase my fiber intake by eating more fruits and vegetables each day. In fact, I’m taking it a step further and cutting out meat for the next month -not indefinitely-it’s just a reset . Conventionally raised beef is loaded with antibiotics and growth hormones that stay with the animal and get passed on to the consumer. By eating grain-fed, non-organic meat, I am loading my body with even more estrogen.
