Why I Started This Blog

I know what you're thinking. "Isn't one blog enough?" Well, I have had several people ask me to blog about the changes I have made to my life in regards to my health. I found that I had enough information for a whole new blog! I have already had some success in my quest. I have lost 20 pounds and feel tons better, but not perfect. (I feel like I'm on the right track though.) In this blog, I will track my progress as I continue my quest for health. It is my hope that some of this information might help other people out there.

My Symptoms:
1. Migraine headaches
2. Chronic Sinus issues
3. Weird pains in my joints (especially in the morning)
4. Tiredness all the time
5. Inability to lose weight
6. Carb. cravings
7. Infertility

My Diagnosis:
1. I have a Candida (and "bad bacteria") overgrowth in my digestive tract.
2. I have genetic mutations which prevent me from detoxing properly and prevent me from absorbing folic acid and B vitamins.

My Treatment:
1. A gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free diet.
2. Nutritional Supplements
3. Nystatin (for the Candida)
4. Things that make me sweat out toxins (like saunas, hot baths, and hot (Bikram) yoga.
