After getting back home, I knew the answer didn’t come in a bottle of bioidentical hormone cream even in minute dosage prescribed by a functional gynecologist.
I learned that lab tests alone (and if not done properly) not only didn’t give an accurate picture of a woman’s state of hormones, it could give a misleading picture resulting in inaccurate diagnosis and prescription/guidance. I also knew there was not one panacea that would bring things back into balance.
After I recuperated from that violent reaction, I committed to taking care of myself and to finding the truth. I began studying, reading, interviewing experts in different fields including endocrinologists, scientists, functional doctors, and sleep specialists and more.
What I discovered was shocking…
My desire to be full of energy and vibrance didn’t change. First, I had to change my thought process. My approach to achieve my desired outcome suddenly became clear. I realized that the solutions to my problems are all within me.
I knew I couldn’t go through this journey alone.
I surrounded myself with the guidance of right mentors, practitioners, tools and support system who were in alignment with my vision. I needed my community to help me implement natural, effective and practical strategies that are evidence based and rooted in ancient wisdom.
To achieve the long lasting results, I needed to follow natural laws of Cleansing, Protecting and Replenishing my mind, body and energetic body.
I knew that the natural laws that are universal didn’t require deprivation or feeling guilty or extreme lifestyle.
In my work with centenarians I noticed that they ate plenty of bread. That was counter to current contemporary wisdom that preached the evils of bread, grain and particularly gluten. I set out to research what the heck was different between the bread they were eating and the bread I was consuming. What I discovered was that it wasn’t about the bread itself but the many shades of gray that went into making a bread.
Having gathered convincing evidence from the scientific community, wisdom of our ancestors and observing living centenarians, I realized that there is a big difference between modern grain and its processing vs ancient grain and traditional processing. One is toxic while the other is nourishing.
So, one of the inflammatory foods that I avoided was modern bread. After two weeks of being grain free, I started consuming ancient grains prepared the traditional way.
Within a few weeks my night sweating stopped, I was getting quality sleep, had more energy during the day, started getting my hair and vibrancy back. Interestingly, I was able to be of service to others even more now that I took care of me first.
