I've recently switched up some of my previously mentioned diet staples. I'm saying no to many of my faves, under the advice of a trusted health practitioner, who did a series of tests on me since I seem to have the symptoms of IBS...
Bye, bye: Coffee, wheat, cows milk, red meat, soy, oats, corn, barley, rye, spelt, citrus fruit (except lemon), kamut, yams, flax seeds, garlic, onions, kidney beans and last, but certainly not least... ALCOHOL.
Hello: brown rice, greens (spring mix, spinach, etc), cocoa, tea, avocado, almonds (blanched only), almond milk, berries, fish, chicken, sprouted beans, eggs and goat cheese (which I am struggling to get into).
I've been sticking to this (with the exception of a couple tiny doses) for a month and a half, and I've never felt better! My stomach feels like it has healed a great deal, and is no longer irritated and in pain. Hopefully it will heal enough to be able to handle some of those foods (and drinks!) again. I am going for a follow up early December... so my fingers are crossed!
For info on the lady I go to (Cheryn Donaldson, aka- miracle worker), go to www.bodymindconnection.net. I don't know that I should be telling you about her, since it already takes a couple months to get an appointment LOL ;). I can't even begin to describe what she does (muscle testing, acupressure, kinesiology, holistic medicine and nutrition etc). She's helped me, and people I know, with food sensitivities, skin disorders, emotional issues, goal setting, decision-making and stress management.
Basically, she can get to the root problem instead of pills and quick fixes. That's what it's all about in my books.
Born in Poland in 1984, Magdalena started modeling at the age of 16 and hit it big in the international scene in 2006. She has landed tons of huge shows (including Victoria's Secret) and many campaigns such as Ralph Lauren, Alessandro Dell'Acqua, Lanvin, Jimmy Choo and Louis Vuitton. She is currently #23 in the Top 50 on Models.com.
For me, she's always a stand-out on the runway, and I am in awe of most of her editorial work. She seems to be able to adapt so well, sometimes in awkward looks, as a classic beauty or all out sex-symbol. The makings of an amazing model!
