Chimichurri chicken wings. 🐓🐓🐓
.

Say that five times fast, or sing it to the tune of Happy Anniversary in its entirety, like I did as I ate these by the plateful. John shot me a look, which I interpreted to mean “you are too sexy when you sing so I’m gonna need you to stop”. Chimichurri sauce is easily made AIP by omitting the chilli flakes, and it’s still full of fresh flavour. I drizzle a little honey on my wings too, because I’m just weird like that. .

This beautiful post about the people who support us from @themightysite and @nalieagustin made me cry (in a good way!) #Repost @themightysite

This Monday, we want to acknowledge — as @nalieagustin puts it — “all of the people who accompany us on this ride regardless of how rough it gets.”

She says: “When my boyfriend took this picture and sent it to me... I immediately put myself in his shoes. Yes it’s hard for us. But I can’t imagine how hard it must be for our partners, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and friends who sit and wait with us, helplessly, as we anxiously wait for results. Who comfort us. Cry with us (sometimes in secret). Who often feel like they’re walking on eggshells as they fear to say the wrong thing. Who watch us in pain and wish they could make everything better but they can’t. Who fear we may leave them behind and in some unfortunate circumstances, we do.”

Hashimoto diagnosis = eating more meat (grass-fed) than I ever imagined... I’m not quite sure how I feel about that. It’s def an adjustment.

Is this why you have no energy? 💡
.
.

Fatigue is a multifactorial issue where low iron and anemic tendencies are one major cause (and often comorbid with hypothyroidism) - that we recognize, but what we DON’T don’t recognize is why that is.
_

This downstream effect I’m about to outline is EXACTLY WHY a poor functioning thyroid is a system problem that’s going to derail your health 10-fold.
_

It seems rather cut and dry, right? Low in serum iron or ferritin, take more iron and problem solved. There’s a number of issues with this logic.
_

First off, B6, folate, b12, AND zinc are all needed for maximum production and transport of oxygen to cells.
_

The most common issue is malabsorption due to a compromised gut. If you’re hypothyroid or have autoimmune disease of any kind, you’re pushing anemia if you’ve done nothing to work on your gut heal - which most don’t. Removing foods and following AIP doesn’t heal your gut.
_

Secondly, if you have low thyroid functionality, your stomach acid production is reduced and as a first line of food assimilation, that’s a problem... which leads me to....
_

Thirdly, SIBO. If you have SIBO (often due to low stomach acid), you’re also going to have a really tough time with acquiring iron because these bacteria take up any exposed iron.
_

While I’m at it, iron deficiency invites metal toxicity - lead and cadmium because these metals and iron use the same transporters - DMT-1 - which hang out at the mucosal lining and compete for these compounds.
_

So what was once a seemingly “manageable” fatigue issue could very well capsize your health.
_

Explore that for yourself or do something about it. Probably a good idea if you actually care about your health... or don’t, that’s your call.
_

But if you want something more that yields better results for energy than medication, feel free to drop me a message.

Took a much needed break at the botanic gardens today with a dear friend. Being in nature and catching up with a friend who understands that I need to take 6437294 sitting breaks is good for the soul! I’ve been loving this time on steroids because it’s given me more energy and helps me be on my feet more. I’ve been able to engage in some normal activities like standing and cleaning my apartment! It’s a bummer I can’t be on them longer, steroids are the only drug I’ve tried that makes me feel more myself. However, the risks are just not worth it in my opinion. I will just have to keep trying other meds to find something that can reduce my inflammation and calm my crazy mast cells. Living with chronic illness takes an insane amount of motivation but I will never stop moving forward! 🌻

Hair I did this weekend 💕

Calling out to my Christian brothers & sisters!!🗣❤️👥
How much stronger would the church body be if everyone in it offered up his/her own physical body as an outward expression of inward worship daily?
How much more drawn would the world be if it saw a healthy, thriving, energized, happy community that wasn’t just as plagued with the same lifestyle related diseases and difficulties as the rest of society?
How much more effective would we be for the kingdom if we weren’t battling fatigue, obesity, headaches, autoimmunity, and mental health problems? ❁

God has given us so many tools to enable us to grab our health by the horns and reap the rewards of a healthy diet and lifestyle.
He created foods that literally have the power to heal disease & sickness, bodies that move and can change & adapt, and gave us each other to support & encourage.

I don’t know why but I’ve always loved the look of blue sky behind trees. I think growing up in the middle of nowhere surrounded my nature and being outdoors all the time helped. I love beautiful days when it’s around 70 degrees and you don’t need a jacket, but you aren’t too hot either.💜 .

I am dumbfounded. GI docs STILL want to run a new litany of tests to really make sure I have what has been shown to exist on the myriad of tests I’ve already had to do 😫. I feel like a lion in a zoo being led through hoops but never getting to the other side. Meanwhile my fur is matted, I whither on the scraps they give me, my roar is hoarse, and my will to even try fades with each stumbling step of my calloused paws.
