It’s been 4 weeks since my pain and inflammation subsided.
I believe that the combination of supplements, the AIP diet (modified even more to leave out all the foods I’m sensitive to), the antiviral protocol to put the EBV back into dormancy, and the specific probiotics are beginning to work.
I saw my naturopath doctor again today. I’ll be going for another round of blood work soon to see how I’m progressing. I’ll also be getting some x-rays done to compare to the ones I had when first diagnosed.
The goal from the beginning has been to manage my disease without medication. I believe we’re on the right track.
Since my diagnosis I’ve read a ton of information about gut health, food allergies, viruses, bacteria, and genetics all being possible links to the disease.
My naturopath has helped put together the pieces of the puzzle and is going to help me have a plan in place should my disease flare up.
I’m so grateful that for now, for this day, I’m still virtually pain free and that my immune system appears to be balanced.
