Do you think there are other ways to heal besides the diet you tried?
Yes, I think there are lots of different ways to heal! I think the important thing is to determine your objective, and then work toward it consistently. There will be setbacks but if you can heal a little everyday amazing things happen! For me the Paleo AIP seemed like the best fit and my goal was to stick with it until I was off my meds. I liked that the approach incorporated motherhood, a PhD in immunology, nutrient dense eating, and common sense with lifestyle modifications too. Then Ayurveda seemed like a good transition to more balanced and sustainable nutrition that aligned with my values. I’m still tinkering with it and I don’t claim to have perfect health but learning to read my body’s cues has been huge and my outlook is different now. I think life will get better in this body of mine the longer I live in it because I’ll keep learning how to care for it and use it to live fully and thrive!
I love questions, feel free to comment with one and I’ll answer in an upcoming post! At the same time, let’s all remember that I’m not a doctor, just a fellow-traveler. If you need medical advice, please seek the support of a professional. If you live near me, I have the names of some great ones!
