I know it’s been a while since I have written anything. A lot has transpired over the last couple of months. My health has not been the greatest, so it has been a roller coaster to say the least. July 1st marks the start of a new beginning for me. I have decided to go the organic route with the foods I consume. I have already started to exercise as of last week with my husband, but now we are ready to get really serious. My goal for changing the types of foods I eat is to get my hormones in check and lose excess weight that has been putting pressure on my heart.
About 6 or 7 years ago, I had a traumatic experience involving my health which all started with me developing a serious life-threatening case of anemia and getting a blood clot also called a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). The doctors do not know what caused it but that started my journey in and out of the hospital. One of those visits required the removal of a mass. The mass was benign, but that didn’t stop that bad boy from growing. Fast forward to now and another mass has started to grow.
A recent doctor I spoke to about what was going on with me said that I would have to do some soul-searching. “Soul searching?” I asked. She explained that I would have to have another surgery to remove the mass and then after my recovery my husband and I would have to try and have children. That freaked me out. We have plans to travel first before we have children and that would mean we would have to push up our timeline before we were ready.
Anyone who knows me knows I don’t like to be pushed into a corner and feel trapped. I started my own business as proof of that, lol. Well, after having multiple discussions with my husband I went on the internet searching to see what other options I had other than an evasive surgery. I found an article “Natural Remedies for: Fibroids” by Sarah Jane Sandy, a nutritionist about how the foods you eat play a roll in how Fibroids (the mass) grow. Mind you NO ONE seems to know the exact cause, but this article claimed that going organic could possibly help to shrink the fibroid along with exercise.
I thought why not. What could it hurt, but make me healthier if I did need the surgery? You may be asking why am I bringing up this story and update about my life. Well, I believe in paying it forward and if me taking this chance could help save a life or make someone else’s life a little better why wouldn’t I share my testimony? I’m sure the next few months will be rough at first as I am weaning myself off of fast food and processed food, but I hope in the end it will all pay off. I’ll keep you posted on this journey.
Are you currently eating organic? What has been your experience? I would love to hear it.
