As you may know from earlier posts, I have been dealing with a growing uterine fibroid and the suspicion that I have some type of hypothyroidism. I have decided to take the naturopathic route and last week I went to my first doctor visit. After filling out a very detailed questionnaire and answering what seemed like a zillion personal health questions (very thorough -- a good thing!), the doctor told me that what is happening to me is likely the cause of pollutants I have been exposed to in my life. So, I am now supposed to be on a high-intensity detox for the next 4 weeks to get a lot of these toxins out of my system. My regimen includes:
-- epsom salt baths
-- castor oil packs on my stomach (heated)
-- detox supplements
-- psyllium husk powder
-- ground flaxseed
-- sauna sessions
-- diet with large amount of cruciferous vegetables
So far, I have been able to do all of these things to some extent, but not as much as prescribed. I can still notice a difference. I have a little more energy, but I had a raging headache for two days last week. I am also feeling a little nauseous today, but who knows if that is related. I will keep you posted as to how this is going!!!!!!!!!
