First POST!!! :)
Yesterday I saw my acupunturist, who is actually a pHd in oriental medicine. He says that I have really slow digestion which is causing all of my problems: brainfog, heart palpitations, facial acne, weight gain, liver pain, constipation, water behing ears, eye pressure...you name it I've got it.

So yesterday I saw my acupunturist, who is actually a pHd in oriental medicine. He says that I have really slow digestion which is causing all of my problems: brainfog, heart palpitations, facial acne, weight gain, liver pain, constipation, water behing ears, eye pressure...you name it I've got it.
So I'm trying everything I can to be good to my intestines, I guess that means I have to stop eating all raw foods....for right now. I just cant handle digesting all the rough stuff. But when I get better I want to continue with it because my body really likes eating raw.
So Im going to be eating lots of steamed and stir-fried veggies, brown rice, and lentils. Yummmmm.....I love being vegan. My family is a meat and potatoes family and it urks me to watch what they eat....but I guess I'm just going to have to get super healthy and show them the right way to eat.
Last week I tried juice fasting to give my digestive system a rest and it didnt really work I got to day 5 and I was so faint and dizzy I thought I was going to die. I gave up and ate and orange. I really dont think my body is ready for fasting right now...my pulse is so low and if it gets any lower it could be dangerous...so fasting I'll have to add it to the "once I get better" checklist.
I started oil swishing today and it seemed to be doing something. I felt my kidneys or adrenals kicking so I figure thats a good thing---yay----I'll keep you posted on how that goes.
My acupunturist is also going to make me an herbal medicine for the intestines and I get to pick that up Tuesday...I'm so excited because its made specially for my condition..oriental medicine is really the coolest thing ever. Did you know that in China you don't have to pay the doctor unless you get better??? Ha- thats great---could you imagine that kind of treatment in the US...NEVER! Poor us :(
Well Im gonna goo and surf the web looking for new treatments and cool things! You all have an awesome day and be safe...watch out for those crazy drunkies on the road going to thier superbowl parties!!
