I had a friend who went to a naturopath years and years ago and had blood-work done to determine what, if any, food sensitivities she had. Interestingly, she had a list of foods that were optimal, some that were foods she should only enjoy on occasion and foods to completely avoid.
It makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it? We all have our own unique genetic make up. It would make sense too that we all must have some food sensitivities, right? There are many foods that cause inflammation, which can lead to disease. I think at a certain age the body says enough is enough! For me, I have periods of fatigue early in the day and I’m thinking it has to do with what I’m eating. It’s hard to narrow down exactly what it might be as I have a very diverse diet, I love most everything! I’m a bit too impatient to do an elimination diet. This is where you eliminate a food, like say dairy, for a few weeks and see how you feel.
I am thrilled to have an appointment with a naturopath doctor this week. I can’t wait to see what she has to say after she analyzes my blood work. Gee, I got to thinking what if she says I shouldn’t eat wheat? Eggs? Dairy?
I guess if it makes me feel a ton better, who cares? I am a good cook and pretty much can figure out how to get the most flavor out of most any kind of food. I sure could figure out how to bake gluten free or cook without dairy.
I will report the findings after I get results. So interesting!
Have a great week!
