From Here to Health

My journey back from autoimmune disease

Virgin Diet Days 3 & 4

on December 21, 2012

So just a quick update before I head off to bed.  I am doing pretty well on the 2 shakes a day.  I have been throwing in a snack or two here and there, but they conform to the plan.  I don’t know if I have lost any weight.  Honestly, I am trying not to even look in the mirror.  I feel better and that is where I want my focus to be.  My back pain is about 90% better which is great.  I haven’t had any serious bloating these 4 days which is good.  My energy level is up.  Lots of positives.  The negatives would be that my face is breaking out, which I am hoping at this point is kind of a detox thing and will clear up soon.  Also, I feel like my digestion has slowed down a little.  Hoping this will turn around with time.  I am having a lot more fiber than usual which I thought would speed things up, but for now, it is doing the opposite.  My reflux has been mildly better.  I started a new supplement tonight though which is for that- DGL.  Some sort of chewable licorice form Dr. Andrew Weil.  It is supposed to help increase mucus membranes which is a big issue with Sjodgren’s.  I will keep you posted on how it works.  I have high hopes.
