I am feeling amazing since my caffeine detox ended. I am 46 days sober, almost a week without sugar, dairy, gluten, caffeine, soy etc. and I must say, I do feel a lot better. I have been having sugar cravings, but somehow I have managed to resist them.
I went to a homeopathic doctor for the first time yesterday. I am very into all natural household stuff, beauty products and holistic living.
I wanted to go to get a blood analysis, and to see from a different doctors perspective how my health is. Especially because I have ditched so many of the unhealthy things I put into my body.
Boy, was I in for a shock. He took the vile of my blood, and put it under the microscope so that I could see what it looked like on the big projector. I could see that my red blood cells were clumping together, a lot of them had no oxygen in the middle, and were not moving barely at all. This is bad news. The doctor explained that I have clumping of the red blood cells, which is an extremely compromised immune system, and leads to many diseases.
He says it affects carrying oxygen to the blood, compromises my muscular and skeletal system, because I am not absorbing nutrients, minerals and calcium into my bones. It is also not absorbing yeast, fungi, and calcium so I have calcium build up, fungi strands and yeast chains all over my insides.
He also noticed I have free radicals floating in my bowels (which lead to cancer), but says he isn’t too worried about that, and will correct itself once I balance my immune system.
He basically said, my hormones are off, my liver has given up on me, and is not excreting toxins like it should, and is not taking in nutrients like it should. Everything is off.
I always thought I was so healthy, but maybe my immune system is the reason for stuff I never thought about before. So, I have been put on an even more restricted diet. No fruit now as well, no cold water, only warm foods, no raw vegetables.
As well as taking a bunch of herbal supplements, B-12, Blood purifier, hormone balancing supplements etc. It is quite an extensive list, but my health is my number 1 priority.
I should have been very upset by this news but I was excited to take on a new challenge, and to fix my body holistically. I am going back in 1 month for a follow up blood test.
I was talking to G last night, and just felt so thankful! I was thankful I was an alcoholic, thankful for all the things that happened to lead me to here, just downright thankful for my life and this blog and the people I meet, and the things that are happening around me everyday.
If I never quit drinking, I never would have gone to see that doctor or addressed my poor immune system, my bad nutritional tendencies and a whole host of other things that are transpiring in my life because of this.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!
