MORNING GREENS: banana, kale, spinach, hemp powder, ground flax, chlorella and almond milk. ➡️ I’ve been pretty quiet for the past week and unable to keep up with my #aprilyogachallenge 😞The truth is I haven’t moved from the sofa much, I’ve had a throat infection AGAIN. I’ve actually been having throat infections almost every month since I started menstrating. It didn’t seem odd 5, 10 or even 15 years ago, I was sick all the time then, my immune system was a mess, it was a normality for me to spends days at a time in bed because I felt too weak.
Now however, aside from these monthly infections I’m a very active person, my life overall has completely turned around.
But right now I am feeling completely fed up with this interruption to my life, it leave me miserable for days, setting off my POTS, making me dizzy whenever I stand up and leaving me with no concentration whatsoever.
It would seem it is all caused by a hormonal imbalance, so I could take progesterone for a few days a month or go on medicated birth control to stop mensuration all together - but I really don’t want to have to start taking medication again after years of it messing up my body to begin with.
So it’s time to go the natural route and try to see if I can balance my hormones with diet along side a few alt therapies (which I will talk about another time)
So for a while at least it’s going to be 0 processed foods, 0 grains and ALOT of veggies, nuts, seeds and legumes. AND a lot more of these big green smoothies. 🙈I know there will be the odd cheat day because we are away a few times next month, but I’m going to try make sure I choose the better options when eating out.
