I've been eager to make this for quite a while. I had learned about it from a podcast a couple of months ago. So I tried it yesterday with some slight alterations. I actually had a frog this morning because I didn't have time for my usual breakfast. And I realized at 11am I hadn't even thought about food.
Symptoms that often go with low energy:
difficult weight loss
cold hands and feet
(The list could go on and on and on…)
If you have any of these symptoms, you are probably suffering from Cellular inflammation.
For many of us, there is disappointment in the healthcare system. Either they don’t know how to solve your issues, or they tell you it’s in your head. And the rest of us who actually like our doctors, may be frustrated because the framework that they are allowed to work in, is limiting and can’t give us the solutions we seek. I talk to a lot of people who have the belief that if it doesn’t seem solvable, it isn’t.
For me it started in middle school. It was awful. It could last for months on end. And I had no idea that I was just making it worse. It is so common that it is likely that either you or someone in your family has it. And there is such a simple solution, but almost no one knows about it.
In the last 2 weeks, I have had 6 people tell me that their symptoms have been recently dismissed by conventional medicine. I could write a book with the stories I have heard over the years. This is such a problem that many articles - and even a book that a patient sent me a link to this morning HAVE written on this topic. I can also remember learning that anatomy was based on a man's body - and to feminize the anatomy they would shift accordingly. Female anatomy, with respect to medicine was seen as an aberration.
A friend of mine told me about this new book about a month ago. It was by a neurologist I have great respect for, David Perlmutter. I have heard him speak in person several times and basically trust anything he has to say. I nearly fell off my chair when I read some of the things he was saying. There was a new marker - using an old test - that could reveal information that could help me help my patients even more. I got so excited, I started testing all my current patients for it.
All of these conditions have this marker in common:
The average thyroid gland weighs about as much as a tablespoon of almond butter. But the thyroid gland, unlike almond butter, has an almost infinite impact on the way your body functions.
Every single cell in your body has thyroid receptors. If you don’t have enough thyroid hormone, there are things in your body that just won’t work. Like an unplugged toaster, it’s not going to work no matter what you do. It will only work if you plug it in - just like your cells, they will only work if they’ve got some thyroid hormones plugged in.
For me, energy is the currency of life. I have spent too many years after having kids struggling to get through the day. My number one goal everyday is to have amazing energy. One of the ways I do that, is to choose a breakfast that will set me up for success.
