Food For Thought…

IMG_3934

We all have to think about food…It is our sustenance…Our Human need for nourishment…It can be our best friend…And it can be our worst enemy…With Fibro can come the added complication of food allergies and intolerance’s…I have no Gallbladder so life becomes even more complicated for my relationship with food…

My biggest and most dominant allergy is Cow Dairy not just the lactose but its particular protein that i just cannot process ditto for soy…Wheat and gluten are a close second…Not forgetting vinegar and having to keep my sugar low…Quite a list…And not a pleasant reaction when ingested…

But i have knowledge and i do not mind having these allergies…I do get asked “what do you eat?”…”Proper food” is always my reply…I cook from scratch mostly…There are many free from products available but they can contain a rather high content of sugar so i am careful upon choosing any…

I eat food that is my medicine…I have a knowledge of Herbs and Holistic Nutrition…So i get which foods are healing and which are anti inflammatory…Each day this knowledge is used to help my body cope with its ongoing struggle to re-balance itself…The human body has an infinite urge to be well and to be alive…

Medication and i do not generally get on…So natural is my way…It is how things have always been…For me it works really well…I function on the whole relatively normally compared to others that i meet with similar health issues…

My health conditions are not just Fibro but are very similar to each other so treating them is very symbiotic…Finding out what works for you can be both a  revelation a relief and a blessing…NL x

“Knowledge is the key to a greater understanding…If lost and confused seek out new learning clarity will come…Solutions found…Balance restored” NL x 🙂
