The Nine Days That My Breast Stood Still (Part Two) ***"You may be thinking that I am crazy right now and that I should be focusing on the fact that there are two foreign lumps in my breast. I am sure this isn’t the first time—and it won’t be the last—you will ever think that I am crazy. But then again… what I do think is crazy is me trying to play God. I know that there are somethings I can do, and some things I can’t do. I know there are some more things I can do through prayer and even more things I can do through prayer and work. At the end of it all, I am not God. God is God. He does not need me to do his job and let’s be truthful, I am in no way equipped to even attempt to try. By Day Six I had already said my prayers (had a few conversations with God) and I knew no matter the outcome that it was going to be either good, great or good up [I love that Jamaican phrase]....." *****READ THE FULL POST AT WWW.UNCAGEDPHOENIX.COM or click on my profile link

Fueling up my FOLLICULAR phase with all things veggies and grains
The follicular phase happens right after menstruation and last for about 7-10 days. As estrogen levels start to increase fueling up on veggies like broccoli, lettuce, and peas can help keep estrogen levels at bay. Sprouts, seeds and pressed salads like kimchi and sauerkraut are also great options to keep your hormonen happy.
If you are ever in Amsterdam, SLA has its salad game on point.
Working from home today with my entrusted heatable Eve (the cute sheep cushion on my tummy) as I have been awake since 4 am with terrible stomach pains and upset tummy..
I am sure it won’t come as surprise to many women with IBS out there that our symptoms get so much worse during this special magical time of the month
Diarrhoea, nausea, gas, cramps, you name it.. But what’s the actual deal with that and why does it happen?
“The chemical culprit is prostaglandin. Prostaglandin is a lipid that your body uses to prevent blood loss and promote clotting; it works by narrowing the blood vessels in your muscles, which can cause them to contract. (A synthetic type of prostaglandin is given to women to induce labor.) After ovulation, the walls of your uterus get packed with prostaglandins. When this tissue breaks down and you start menstruating, the prostaglandins are released and send a message to the smooth muscle tissue in the uterus. That message: "Squeeze, damn you!" Excessive prostaglandins are the cause of cramps. Your uterus is squeezing too hard, cutting off blood flow, and generally overexerting itself. If prostaglandins leak into the bloodstream, they send that "squeeze" message to every piece of soft muscle tissue it can find. So then your colon thinks it's a uterus and goes into overdrive.
Progesterone also has a hand in this dirty business. Progesterone is one of the hormones that controls our cycle. It thickens the walls of the uterus, clogs the cervix, causes constipation; generally, it gums up the works.
When you're on your period, you're not making as much progesterone. This leads to things in both your uterus and your gastrointestinal tract moving much more freely.
As we've seen, the GI tract and the reproductive system are linked. This link extends to disorders of both systems, though science has yet to determine how and why. Sufferers of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) are more likely to have severe cramps and diagnosable premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), and their IBS is also harder to manage during the monthly visit. Researchers have also found links between IBS, period pain, and endometriosis”
My clients are doing some amazing things for their bodies and minds. I absolutely LOVE seeing the changes they’re all making and how slowly and sustainably they’re doing it all. Something I get my clients to do each week is reflect on their progress so far and on all the changes they’ve experienced; physically, mentally, and emotionally. They’ve come SO far and when they hit bumps or cross road we navigate through them together and they only grow from it all.
An amazing lady had gone from sleepless anxious nights and crazy cravings and energy dips during the day, to restful quality sleeps, tonnes of energy and NO MORE CRAVINGS.
Do YOU want to change your life? To have more energy and better health to be able to do the things you want to do but you’re just not doing? Do you want to learn EXACTLY how to eat and behave to favour fat loss and fat loss that LASTS? I can show you how, and help you every step of the way
DM me; I can welcome 3 more women this month who want to change their health and weight forever on The Forever Plan 6 month transformational programme 🦋
