Let the experiment begin!!

I started Magnesium-L-Threonate. It’s crazy expensive, so it gets 30 days!

I think my Fibro Fog has gotten better. The things I am doing to help clear it are, Savella, Ketogenic diet and bulletproof coffee. It has taken about 6 weeks to start to feel any mental clearing and energy from these. However, I do feel that I am starting to feel some better.

Here is another article about Magnesium-L-Threonate. If you have better article and how it relates to Fibro Fog, let me know in the comments!

The Brand I chose is Doctors Best. I have a question. Should I continue my regular magnesium, or is this all I need?

Optional – Zucchini noodles if serving hot

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  1. Cut chicken into nugget sized pieces and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs together, then add enough Parmesan cheese to make the mixture into a thick paste.
  3. Add chicken chunks and mix with your hands until all the chicken pieces are coated.
  4. Fry chunks in hot olive oil until golden brown and done through.
  5. Place on paper towel to drain and you’re done.

*****************************************************************

This is a tasty hot meal to be served with zucchini noodles and sauce.

For snacking, refrigerate and serve cold with tomato sauce for dipping.

I’ll post pics of this as soon as I make it again (which will be soon, cause now I’m craving it!)

Keto Friendly and a happy belly!

*You are going to ask me about a nutritional breakdown for this, but I don’t have one yet. I will work on that, along with the photos!

For the One I Love

Have you seen this post on Facebook?

“Please, in honor of someone who is fighting Lupus, MS, Crone’s, Scleroderma, Ulcerative Colitis, Fibromyalgia, Sarcoidosis, Lymphedema, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Hepatitis, Diabetes, Celiac, Sarcoidosis, Hashimotos Thyroiditis, PBC,CIDP, Aplastic Anemia. Please copy and paste, do not share.”

Well, this is a new one. This is the one I would like to see break the internet.

Some will never understand the struggle, but those who love you will try.

When my wife asked the doctor, “When will she get well?” and the doctor answered, “Never”, she was heartbroken, but she has been unflagging in her support of me on good days and bad. She has endured the effects of different diets, various exercises, yoga, Pilates, supplements, expensive vitamins and every other thing anyone has ever mentioned that might help me. She has sat through doctors tests and exams, and treatments and done absolutely every chore, managing work and home and kid and me as the new thing we are trying worked, or didn’t work, or worse, made me sicker. She has sat by my side every. single. time, unwavering.

And me? I have tried every single day to get well from a disease I can’t get well from. Sometimes I just get tired.

When I get tired, she is there. Every day my spouse encourages me to run if I need to run, rest if I need to rest, and cry if I need to cry, and hold my heart through it all.

Let this post be for her. For her unfailing dedication, for her love and support, for her tolerance and sacrifice.

Tag the person who is always there for you to say Thank You.

Migraine Prophylactic

I mentioned a migraine prophylactic recently to a friend and was going to send her here to get the info. I thought I had posted this long ago, but it seems I didn’t.

This mix is on the advise of my neurologist. It served me well, mostly. My biggest trigger, estrogen spike, was only completely eliminated by menopause, and even the first year of that was a roller coaster ride.

I would suggest trying it for 30 days. It’s one of those things that couldn’t hurt.

Remember, I’m not a doctor, this is just something that helped me. If you’re allergic to anything here, don’t take it. If you are already taking some of these things, don’t double up.

B2 – 200 mg

Magnesium – 200 mg – Skip past the ads and read about which type might be best for you.

CoQ10 – 100 mg

Butterbur – 100 mg

Feverfew – 100 mg

Because my migraines were so frequent, my doctor added a beta blocker, Propranolol. But try these for a month first.

You might need to ease into the magnesium if it gives you loose stools. You don’t have to quit it, just split the dose to 100 mg in the morning, and 100 mg at night. It doesn’t bother me at all, because some of my other meds have the opposite effect. (grimace)

This combination eliminated a lot of my migraines with unknown triggers. It also eased some known triggers. I could have a glass of wine or a bit of chocolate with out intense pain.

I put this out there with the same spirit that most of my other posts carry, with the hope that it will help someone else!!!

Magnesium-L-threonate

Magnesium-L-threonate is a relatively new thing, at least to me. It’s a new form of Magnesium that improves brain function. It’s not thought to improve brain function, it has been proven to improve brain function. As someone suffering from Fibro Fog, I am desperate to try this form, and will order it soon. I’ll give you all the feedback I can to help you decide if it’s right for you.

Here is just one article that I found, there are many, just google Magnesium-L-Threonate and scroll past the ads.

30 Days!

30 Day in folks, and feeling fine!

As I reflect over the last 30 days, I realize I have changed and grown into this “diet” a lot. I have now started thinking of it as a ‘way of eating’, no longer a diet.
Gosh, it feels soooo good not to be hungry all the time. I actually go long stretches without eating now and when I do eat, it fills me up quick.
This diet is anything but easy in the beginning, but it’s getting so much better now!
