Alright, so I am taking my first steps to balancing my hormones. To do this, I need to balance mind, body and spirit. There is so much to all of this, and as recommended by Allan Warshowsky, author of Healing Fibroids: A Doctor’s Guide to a Natural Cure, I am taking it one step at a time. Implementing all of these changes is overwhelming, so I will take one step at a time.
My first battle is giving up caffeine. Dr. Warshowsky suggests weaning off it by mixing Caffeinated Coffee with Decaf until soon you are just drinking decaf. I have been doing this, and I have only experience ONE mind splitting headache…but whatever, I mean a headache compared to a surgical knife is nothing. Today, I succeeded with 3 parts Decaf and 1 part Regular. I aim to be totally on Decaf by Wednesday, and then by Friday, plan to switch to Herbal tea. And I was a HUGE coffee addict. Just ask my mother who was in shock at my consumption of caffeine upon a recent visit to see her and dad in Maine. No joke folks.
I have already given up refined sugar as Dr. Warshowsky suggests…so this battle was already won. Stevia and I are best friends. Okay well not best friends, but we have cuddled up now and again.
And I have given up dairy…Whatever, who cares about dairy? Okay, so I like cheese, but it’s not usually that yummy anyway. Makes me feel clogged up. I replaced the milk I was using in my oatmeal with a product called: Blue Diamond Almond Breeze. It’s a blend of coconut and almond milk and has no added sugar. I think it’s yum. I need to see if there is an organic version.
One step at time. One day at a time. These tumor’s are going bye bye.
