So overall, I'm apparently a very healthy individual with very low Vitamin D. Which led me to some interesting research...
*Low vitamin D is linked with depression and anxiety (yes, I'm a google Dr...I find it very interesting that usually natural health sites say one thing while the medical sites usually deny it - I'd rather trust the natural sites to be honest!)
So, wearing my Dr hat right now, could it possible be the cause of my mystery illness??
I called my naturopath straight away and organised to pick up a therapeutic dose of Vitamin D to get started on straight away. I highly recommend seeing a naturopath for any health concerns, even if it's just a second opinion aside from your Dr. So many illnesses can be managed by diet and supplementation, and I truly believe the longer anyone stays off medication the better.
So the measures I'm taking to try and increase my health and wellness right now include:
*Exercise - Treadmill at the moment, with some stretching and at home Yoga thrown in.
*Sleep - My biggest challenge as I'm a night owl...I'm endeavouring to be in bed fast asleep by 11 - 11.30pm
*Nutrition - Lemon water, Breakfast smoothie (I'll do a post on this soon - it's AMAZING), Salads for lunch, drink lots of water, Veggies and healthy grains for dinner, eggs, LIMIT wheat, dairy, packaged foods NO coke or tea to limit caffeine intake.
*Supplements - I'm on Vitamin D, Occasional Spirulina tablets, Premular (herbal remedy for hormone balancing)
*Wellbeing - Taking time to relax and not push myself too hard right now. Spend time doing a little relaxation and meditation.
*Attitude - Working on being grateful, accepting those around me and loving them, accepting myself, not taking things personally, living with intention and purpose...I could go on as this list is a post in itself!
On a separate note, we had our Friday night movie night tonight with the boys. We watched "Antz" which is an old movie, but the boys hadn't seen it.
