With each day of pain, I only grow stronger…
I made it through the first few days of my period this past weekend and am relieved that the worst is over 🙂
Fortunately, my days of pain were improved. I think back to this same time a year ago and I was suffering tremendously with unrelenting pain, nausea and diarrhea on the first couple of days of my period. These past few days it was not nearly as bad. Also, my PMS symptoms were lessened and my mood has felt more balanced.
Owing up my overall decrease in pain to the cleansing I have done, or at least this is what I am telling myself to keep me moving forward with them 🙂 I also made sure to take my key supplements in the week before flow — moringa, calcium/magnesium and fish oil — all factors that play into the reduction of my pain and balancing my mood.
While improved, I am still suffering with pain so my work is not done. I dream of the day when I don’t have to plan my life around the arrival of my period, when I do not have to suffer with pain. My quest to naturally treat endometroisis continues…
Keeping the Hope with Another Liver Cleanse
I am gearing up for another liver and gallbladder cleanse next weekend. I started prepping today, after making a quick decision to do so. With the holiday season right around the corner, I decided to get another one out of the way before I am faced with all the bad temptations coming…
Admittedly, I have not been as strict with my diet as usual and have allowed things to enter my mouth that I would not normally consume including quite a bit of deep fried things, alcohol, cheese and even a little gluten. I think a part of me is testing the waters after all this cleansing to see how my body reacts. And while I was expecting to pay for all these bad choices this past period – in all reality, I am feeling better. My body didn’t bloat up like it used to…
This tells me that the removal of about 1,000 stones from my liver and gallbladder that things are digesting better and helping to rid myself of the hormonal imbalance inside of me. So I am going to continue doing them. I will let you know how this next one goes…
Further Insight Into My Body and Pregnancy
While the destruction of my pain is a primary goal, I am also hoping that my cleansing ways will clean up my body enough to fall pregnant, while providing a healthy start to my child’s new life. While we are not actively trying right now, I am always hopeful that a mishap may occur 🙂
I started reading a great book this past weekend called Taking Care of Your Fertility by Tony Weschler. The book goes into Fertility Awareness Methods (FAM) – with instructions of how to chart different fertility factors throughout the monthly cycle. As soon as I pick up a thermometer, I plan to start charting my cycles so I become more aware of when I am ovulating, how long my luteal phase is, etc.
These insights should help me to fall pregnant eventually, or at the very least, help me to recognize when I am not (no more stress over pregnancy tests), since simple charting methods allow you to recognize when you are pregnant 🙂
On the Positive Side?
I am feeling hopeful right now that my body is healing from endometriosis and that I am getting closer to a point where I will be able to naturally fall pregnant.
I am taking the first steps towards at least understanding my body’s natural fertility signs, which better equips me to doctor myself. This is really the point in naturally healing. Connecting back to your body. Listening and paying attention to its signals. Feeling better.
Keep the hope.
Peace to you dear endo warrior 🙂
