Why I'm Blogging. Or...Turning Pain Into A Purpose
This blog is bringing purpose to my pain.
I have researched gut health and autoimmune disorders out the wazoo and feel led to pass along what I have discovered. I pray I am able to do that in an informative and entertaining manner, in the hopes that by doing so it can relieve your suffering and help you participate in life again.
Let me introduce myself…
I was like many of y’all these days… sick and tired of being sick and tired!
Challenging health issues were keeping me from fully participating in life. I suffered from weight gain, falling hair, troubling digestion, fatigue, and dramatic blood sugar fluctuations among other things. I even passed out 6 or 7 times over a two year period.
Over the years I sought the advice of doctor after doctor, giving each my ever-expanding list of symptoms only to be brushed off, ignored, or told they weren’t really a big deal!
I finally met a doctor who agreed to test my thyroid. I was surprised to learn my TSH level was normal. I had expected a diagnosis of hypothyroidism. This result was very disappointing, as I still didn’t know what was wrong and…
I had really hoped I would finally have an answer and therefore a game plan.
So, I decided to take charge of my own health and not rely solely on doctors anymore. First, I went home and studied about the thyroid. I learned that TSH levels can fluctuate and that the results can vary, depending on when the blood sample is given.
Next, I consulted a naturopathic doctor and told him exactly what blood work I wanted done. The results revealed that not only did I have hypothyroidism, but that it had worsened. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease, an autoimmune disorder!
I was livid as I thought about all the wasted years during which I had not been taken seriously. If the first doctor had actually listened to me, I wouldn’t have descended to this debilitating level of health!
During my research, there was ALWAYS some new supplement, diet, or protocol to follow that was sure to fix everything! Nothing worked. Some would help a little, some would even seem to help but only for a short time, and then everything was back to the same.
My life tended to revolve around managing my health.
But through this process, I started making changes in my lifestyle. Understanding how God intended us to live and how to structure my life accordingly seemed to be the right direction to take.
I remember talking to my mom one day, crying, tears rolling down my face, telling her I was so tired of trying to figure it out! So tired of always having to do more research, experiment with another product. But I also told her I wouldn’t give up, because what was the alternative? Stay miserable? Stay unhealthy? Let “it” win? Never!
I’m a warrior.
I went to prayer and said “Lord, I understand if this is to be my trial, I’ll gladly go through it if this is what you need for me to experience. But if it’s not, than please show me a solution.”
And He did.
Just a few days later, and in a way I knew it was Him directing me, I started learning about cellular health. We live and die at the cellular level, so if we have damaged cells we are more susceptible to disease.
With the toxic assault, we are bombarded with daily we really don’t stand much of a chance.
I was at a point where I wasn’t even sure I could continue working; the burden that would put on my husband was unbearable! But… by implementing these principles I went from barely getting through the day- barely functioning- to participating in life again.
