Healing success!

I cannot believe how things have changed in the last month.  I have been spending some time in prayer for wisdom, healing, and knowledge to find the answers to heal my body.  My prayers are being answered with clarity and I am finding the answers and seeing results.

I’ve literally lost another 10lbs.  That’s a total of 30lbs!

I have also been taking a better CBD oil by Fairwinds suppliment for inflammation and pain, and over all neuro-protection.  Last but most informational, I watched this amazing docuseries by Dr. Isabella Wentz, PharmD, FASCP and Hashimotos survivor as well.  Seriously if you suffer from auto-immunity you have to watch this. The Thyroid Secret

My inflammation is drastically decreased and my brain fog is almost virtually gone.  My joint pain has improved, but I am still working on a few things to help improve that even more.  I just had my blood drawn again for my hormone levels and my thyroid function which I will report in my next post.

Success is a 100 little wins!

Pizza and (root)Beer

Tried this amazing recipe from the arsinal of http://www.grazedandenthused.com

It is a homemade AIP Paleo Chicken Pesto Pizza.  Loaded with Pesto, shredded chicken, olive bar olives, roasted artichokes and Truffle Sea salt.  It was so simple to go to a local store with a great variety of natural and organic and specialty foods to get the ingrediants I did not already have on hand. You can find the recipe here Chicken Pesto Pizza and I made it in less than an hour including the flat bread crust.  It was amazing and I’m so glad I found it, since I’ve been on the AIP its been difficult to watch others eat typical weekend dinners like pizza and such.  Not that I have a problem with eating steak and Salmon or grilled chicken instead of Pizza, but sometimes you just want Pizza!  So I found an option.  And I gotta say its better than most normal pizzas its more flavorful and rich.  The crust is delicious and slightly doughy and still crispy on the outside.

In an effort to heal my gut and help me with digestion during this process of healing.  I have been trying lots of probiotic foods and drinks like this.  I have found that Humm kombucha is so far my favorite for fruity flavored kombucha, because I really cant stand the taste of regular kombucha.  But  I decided to try this one while I was shopping at my local Natural Grocers, and I liked it.  I figured if I sipped it while I walked and I didnt like it, it was a less then 3dollar cost to give it a go.  But I REALLY liked it! So I bought five more.  It gave me a little treat because it tasted like my dad’s homemade rootbeer, and yet I know that it had the benefits of the probiotic, organic, gluten free (soda).  So glad I took the chance to try it. It was a treat.
