I have just updated my Blog. Please check it out.
I went to Nature Path the last year, for over a year for my acid reflux/hietal hernia. The ladies there are very caring and fun to be around. I loved it there. They have helped me out allot. I had gotten the Hietal Hernia Surgery in August 2009, it has helped allot. I still have all my Food Allergies though.
I always feel better as long as I follow the Dr's advise.
First she told be to go on an Anti-Inflammatory Diet. The book is called "The Anit-Inflammation Diet and Recipe Book" Protect yourself and your family from Heart Disease, Arthritis, Diabetes, Allergies and More. by Jessica K. Black, N.D. I got this book from the Nature Path, but you can get anywhere. My nature path has also put me on natural supplements. And she told me to use organic foods. I have lost lots of weight following this diet plan. It's mostly vegetable, some meats and some fruit. No junk food. No sugar or wheat. Dr. has me doing a castor oil pack. You put castor oil on a special cotton cloth, then you lay the towel on your stomach then plastic bag, then a towel, lastly a heating pad. Do that for about an hour. It is really soothing. It is a form of detox.
Before I followed this diet, I was following "The Acid-Alkaline Diet" for Optimum Health Restore your health by creating balance in your diet.
This book talks about eating alkaline foods and drinking alkaline water and staying away form acidy foods. Both of these books are very similar food wise.
The other thing I have done is NAET treatments.
It helps to rid allergies and other sensivtivites, like food. Read up on it. It has helped me allot.
I have also followed the advise of a book called "Prescription for Nutritional Healing"A practical A-Z Reference to drug-free remedies using Vitamins, Minerals, Herbs and food supplements. By Phyllis A. Balch, CNC and James F. Balch, M.D.
My nature path also did a food sensitivity test on me and discovered that I have several food sensitivities.
Especially to: Dairy, Caffeine, Chocolate, Sugars, Wheat, Tomatoes, Potatoes and Corn.
