Don’t let people tell you feel crappy is normal, being old doesn’t mean we have to suffer or feel old. Prior to my cancer diagnosis, I thought eating “HEALTHY” foods and doing well. Big Mistake chemotherapy ended 2000.
By 2008, my hair thinned, I gained weight and the only way to stop it was to practically not eat. Joint pain/arthritis intensified, headaches, sinusitis, constipation, tiredness, skin eruptions and dry skin getting worst. I tried to eat and exercise but no results. Nothing worked. I can’t exercise or walk up and down the stairs without feeling like I would slide off my knees. I ate ‘healthy’ foods, but discovered after working with my dietitian those foods were making me sick. My dietitian, Angela Hermes, RDN, LD, CLT, who specializes in AutoImmune Conditions, of Beaverton helped me move through the litany of things I never even considered were making me ill, the result was astounding. In 2 weeks my pain disappeared! My skin eruptions subsided, wasn’t as tired, constipated, and didn’t wake up with headaches.
Food is medicine, but how does one know which food is the right one for us? The MRT/Leap tests food to our blood then translates which foods are good/bad. I know there are other ways of getting the right info, but it’s slow and tedious. I don’t want to take the time to test out each item, this was and is the quickest and most accurate way to gather the correct data and feel better almost immediately.
I give Angela 100 stars if there were such a thing. Thank you Angela.
MY CHOLESTEROL WAS 211 ABOUT A YEAR AGO, AND AT THAT POINT I BEGAN EATING A PLANT BASED DIET. WHEN I HAD MY CHOLESTEROL CHECKED AGAIN IN THE EARLY SUMMER, IT WAS 201. I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED. BUT THEN I CAME TO SEE ANGELA AND DISCOVERED MANY FOODS (GINGER, COCONUT, BROCCOLI) THAT I WAS SENSITIVE TO. TODAY, MY CHOLESTEROL IS 164, WITH 66 HDL AND 81 LDL, AND 82 TRIGLYCERIDES.
THIS WAS THE SHIFT I WAS LOOKING FOR BY CHANGING MY EATING PATTERNS. I AM REALLY HAPPY TO HAVE SOME QUANTITATIVE POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT, BUT THE TRUTH IS, I GENERALLY FEEL REALLY GOOD AND WHEN I DO NOT, I CAN ALWAYS TRACE IT BACK TO A FOOD. FOR MY SYSTEM, FOOD TRULY IS MEDICINE, AND WHEN I HANDLE MY DIET WITH RESPECT AND CARE I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER.
