I just wanted to share some things that have really helped me feel more human again!! I suffered from reallllllyyyyy low energy levels, but I went to see a nutritionist who specialises in nutritional medicine and helping immune problems. After a series of tests to see how my body deals with the food I eat, he recommended I give up gluten. I've always been a healthy eater, but I'm partial to a gluten filled treat every now and again so I was pretty worried about doing it. However, after just a few weeks I started to feel a big difference. It hasn't been without it's challenges, but now, 6 months in I feel like a new person and don't pln to ever go back! I noticed added benefits when also giving up dairy, but for me (a massive foody!) I found it too dificult to give up both. I have cut down on dairy hugely though, and now have almond milk rather than cows milk and use a dairy free sunflower spread instead of butter. I had my appointment at St Thomas' this week and they couldn't believe how well I am. I am in remission!
Secondly, in the last couple of weeks I started taking Maca Powder after a friend said she was bouncing off the walls with energy. I feel like a new person! I can last the whole day with ease now, and the other day I had some friends round for the evening and laughed more than I have in months as I feel so happy, energetic and full of life. It's also given my sex drive a huge boost, which had been dwindling away with the fatigue so my husband is loving it too!
I know it may not work for everyone, but I thought I'd share just in case it helped a couple of people.
