It's been an interesting week, that's the only way I know how to describe it. It all started a couple months ago when I knew my body wasn't functioning right. After doing some research and hearing rave reviews I went to the Utah Valley Wellness Center to see the lovely Catherine Kipp. 6 vials of blood later I finally got my results from her last week. Let's just say I'm not very happy with my body or Doctors or Birth Control right now.
Now the fun stuff begins! I'm sadly low on Vitamin D (suprise suprise right?), I'm also anemic at the moment and don't even get me started with my hormones (these are just a few of my many problems). So now I take around 25 supplements a day, I've been banned from all foods with high amounts of hormones (red meat, chicken, milk, eggs, etc) and take Progesterone Troches. Um have you ever had a Progesterone Troche? Basically it's a yuck/mint flavored square piece of wax that you have to suck on until its gone. I had my first one last night and couldn't stop gagging sooo I solved the problem by putting a mini cadburry egg next to it.
Anyways the point of my little sob story isn't to get sympathy it's a cry for help. I'm supposed to be eating super healthy (the cadburrys definitely don't count, give a girl a break!), mostly fruits and vegetables, which is hard for this meat-loving girl. If I could eat cereal every meal, every day, all day I totally would (milk substitute ideas are gladly welcome). Any recipes, suggestions, tips, advice, food substitutes, etc etc etc are welcome. No. NEEDED! Also, I highly recommend Catherine Kipp (she's a nurse practitioner), she really takes her time and really cares about you and your health.
