Dr seems surprised with food intolerance feeling good connection
The Dr we were going to left the area so we went to a new doctor yesterday to get established as new patients...it was fascinating to me to listen to the problems I had just a few years back...she asked me about migraines, depression, and gastro type issues and I was able to say that those conditions for me are a thing of the past due to eliminating the foods that don't make me feel good...she also noted how healthy I have been because I have not been to see a Dr much lately.
This smacked me in the head like the "could have had a V-8" ads...the doctor seemed surprised when I told her I think it has to do with my food eliminations...she wrote it all down and smiled and seemed pleased but it had me wondering if more people fiddled with this kind of thing they might enjoy a better quality of life like I do now too.
The Dr is going to examine blood tests though for thyroid function and hormone levels and cholesterol and that's okay, but I do believe that those who suffer with respiratory ailments often and stomach issues should wonder if what they are eating is causing these problems...I am not suggesting that all people have food intolerances but I do think that all people can't and shouldn't eat all things and they will do their bodies a service by taking time to experiment with what might be really making them sick.
Speaking of that mindset, I am back to avoiding sugars...I had a week of snack cake and pancakes and cappacinos from machines and I was starting to not feel that great again SO I am off to a great start this morning with my grits and tea and I FEEL GOOD........hope you do too!
