On July 12th I had my first full visit with the Naturopath doctor. A five hour visit to be exact. It consisted of an extremely thorough look at EVERYTHING in my life from childhood up that could be relevant to the onset of my rheumatoid arthritis and a physical exam.
There are many things that seemed insignificant to me as we talked, but to her were important pieces of my health puzzle that she is carefully putting together.
I left her office both ecstatic that someone was finally listening to me, and exhausted from the length of time and the energy it took to go piece by piece through my heath history.
I have a good start to a natural medicine cabinet with a focus on the chronic UTIs that I’ve suffered from since childhood, and two potent natural antibiotics in case of other illness.
She has me doing hydrotherapy to get the Raynaud’s syndrome to subside. That was easy to do this week in the extreme heat by allowing myself to get really hot and then jumping in the creek to let the cold water shock me lol.
Also I have a few items specifically relative to my RA to help ease symptoms while waiting for tests to be done. I’m continuing with the Tumero and have added a liquid OmegaCo3, and TriFortify Liposomal Glutathione.
The TriFortify is where I know my commitment to heal my body… it is quite possibly the most vile tasting substance on earth and you have to hold it under your tongue for 30 to 60 seconds. Nasty!
I lost a week to vacation but this week will be working on getting the saliva test done, the gut health test done, and the extensive blood tests done.
Being on vacation last week and camping was very much needed. The only downside is that I was not eating as clean as I usually do and I’m hurting pretty bad today.
I’m sure that when I clean up my eating this week my symptoms will improve.
Natural healing is not a quick fix. I will stay the course and do everything I can to give my body every opportunity to do so. Mind, body, and spirit 💜
