I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes in 2000, the current high-carb diet was a disaster. By 2012 I needed injections and went onto a newer non-insulin one, this made me so ill I had to stop and it was going to be another type but I just could not face it. My husband hit the internet and came across a natural answer, a live raw food lifestyle. (If anyone would like info I can send links etc.)
My life was transformed, sugar readings from 20's to single figures, side effects (and meds) disappearing, BP normal and coming off meds, (already halved), cholesterol normal, weight 4 kilos down so far, 2 dress sizes. I am disabled but mobility and strength is hugely improved. So all brilliant, I will never go back, my health is in my own hands.
But I had been on Levthyroxine for years and since Christmas became ill starting many of those symptoms indicative of thyroid mis-treatment. Back to the internet and found that some leafy greens can cause problems if you eat a great deal, I guess this could be an answer. So I am on the way to finding a better treatment path with a wonderful nutritionist, candidiasis treatment, adrenal support, natural dessicated thyroid. The next challenge is to find a balance between the 'greens' and the right levels of thyroid treatment.
I am definitely beginning to improve and am so, so grateful every day. The level of support is phenomenal, my husband does the research (no brain fog, bless him) and follows the lifestyle with me. My doctor has taken me through the changes with every encouragement. ( Got to get him clued up on the thyroid now!) The nutritionist (also a doctor) is amazing.
All I have had to supply is the determination, so using sites like this is just so powerful. We need to use them to the full and be there for each other. We are finding so many others who need to hear the word and it is wonderful to offer the possibility of hope.
