Eating The Yard Is the food you eat killing you? Could be! My personal journey and story. www.eatingtheyard.com
"L Well...is it? Even the "healthy" foods! So we started over!

Hi :) I guess it's about time to venture back into my blogging world. Many reasons for that....I feel better and can sit at the computer again for more than a few minutes at a time. As our time here progresses, I'll share more about my journey, the issues that caused it and why I believe the root cause of it all was food...food we should be secure in knowing is okay for us to eat. This is my stor

y...welcome to my page!! β™₯

Little did I realize the foods and drinks were were consuming were killing me. This isn't a weight loss journey...weight loss is only a side effect of the most powerful drug we have available to us...the food we put into our bodies!! I have PCOS, a degenerative lumbar spine, fibromyalgia and Dercum's disease (MANY painful lipomas) although no doctor around here will stick his neck out and diagnose the DD...they're too afraid of what they don't understand...if they diagnose it, then they're under an obligation to treat it...uhhhh, NO...no more pills, thank you. But, I'd like to get some documentation on it...right now my doctor's notes are heavy on the "oh my your glucose is 117 today" and "you need to lose a lot of weight". Well, news for ya DOC ole pal...you're living in a world funded by pharmaceuticals, so you need to GO!! NO way in HELL we're going down the diabetes trail with 64 different drugs! The ramifications of that are monumental...with our healthcare options dwindling, I just don't NEED him writing unnecessary diagnoses on my health record. Since my appointment (about 6 weeks ago - 9 weeks since my journey began) my glucose has been 89-100 every morning. Every time I check it 2hrs after a meal and randomly it is never any higher than 110...he wasn't even astute enough to check further studies. SMDH
I'm a NURSE and I know better than that! It all came to a head at Christmas/New Years this year (2013 into 2014) I could barely walk, I hardly remember family visits, I hurt so bad I cried myself to sleep every night...the doctors couldn't/wouldn't help me...they made the matter worse. I was given a pill back in the spring of last year...it caused horrid side effects including brain fog, inability to find the words to speak, anger, rage, depression, insomnia, itching...and the list goes on. This story could have turned out differently I honestly believe. I could (should) have been in the hospital...glad now I wasn't...the list of medications and crap that I would have gone home on would have forever changed my life and who I am. The doctors I've seen all throw pill bottles at me and tell me to lose weight...pill bottles that poison your body as much as the foods that feed the diseases. It's a vicious cycle and I jumped off :) Cautiously of course...
MSG, aspartame, nitrate/nitrite and gluten free. VERY limited dairy to the tune of Mozz cheese, feta cheese and egg whites. Little to NO refined sugars and we've ditched almost everything with high fructose corn syrup as well as anything with a label that contains words that #1 are hard to pronounce, #2 we don't understand and #3 are things that simply do NOT belong in our bodies (ie more than about 4-5 ingredients)...that equated to about 85% of our pantry/fridge! It's hard to do all this completely organic, but we're working our way there! This is being typed 9 weeks into my self treatment...I am firing my doctor and looking for a physician who treats root causes instead of guessing at pills. I feel so much better already it's amazing! I am weaned off the poison little hateful white pill (Topamax) he had me on for the fibromyalgia pain! Also OFF prescription Prevacid. I have 2 other prescription medicines that are necessary that I will be keeping for now until I get a chance to see a new doctor or holistic practitioner. Being an RN, I don't endorse anyone doing this...this is MY story and how this has worked for me...and quite possibly can work for many others.

Time to get back to work on eating right and loading up those precious drops of essential oils (ask me). The fibromyalgia is raging, stress is high causing lots of anxiety and sleep problems. So here we are. 😊
I know what works, I just have to do it.
With all my dietary allergies and health problems related, I find that eating a clean (chemical free) , gluten free diet is what works. To keep my nutrient values in check, I also am following WW points.
Soooo this morning it's a shrimp and mozzarella omelet. Using Pam spray, shrimp, eggs, mozzarella cheese...plus I use Nutpods creamer for my coffee, I have a whopping 4 points in breakfast and it's yummy!

I went to my new Florida Dr and health care has really become barbaric. She was offended by the fact that I said she wasn't helping me by cutting down the only TWO meds that actually gave me some relief and ability to sleep at night. *$ #@ Drs and their BS lack of compassion and backbone to ACTUALLY help their patients. *rant off*
*if you want some background, you can read my about area. 😊

Trying a new dish today. Not feeling well, the fibromyalgia is kicking my ass with the heat and incoming storms so I'm starting dinner early.
Going to shred the chicken when it's done cooking, add some anti inflammatory broccoli and chickpea rotini. πŸ˜‹
