Diet Treatment

20160222_110152 copy

Since 2008 I have been struggling with some health issues. Sleep has been sparse, digestive issues, constant nausea, and fatigue have been present, and I have had a long struggle with Overactive Bladder. I have gotten to the point where I don’t really leave the house due to the Overactive Bladder. I have seen a urologist a couple times since 2008, but none of the treatment ever really made a difference. I started seeing the urologist again in August 2015, and 7 medications and many appointments later nothing has improved. I also felt very pressured to do Botox treatment, which I personally didn’t feel comfortable with (no judgement if you decided to do Botox treatment).  Two and a half weeks ago I took the plunge to see a Naturopath. After talking with him, I felt so confident that he could help me get better using natural methods.  I am 2 weeks into my strict diet treatment and a week into my supplement treatment.

Eating healthy is one of the most important things for your health. Although, healthy is completely different for each person. My list of healthy foods is different than someone who does not struggle with OAB. The first thing that my Doctor wanted me to do was change my diet completely! So now i am Gluten, most dairy, alcohol, caffeine, and acidic food free! Although the list is long of what I cannot eat, I have been enjoying experimenting with different recipes and ingredients that are healthy for me to eat.

My hubby has been posting all his favorites of my meal experiments on Instagram. So I decided to share some of what I have been making with you all!

Bagel and Scrambled Eggs

I am a huge breakfast fan! So this plate is an Udi’s Gluten Free/Dairy Free Bagel with Daiya Cream Cheese Spread. Then there is 2 eggs (scrambled) with organic chicken sausage (diced) and Daiya Cheddar Cheese. This is the Gluten free, Dairy free version of what I previously ate every morning. However, when buying the bagels you would get 4 in a pack and they were more than double the cost of regular bagels. I have since, given up my bagels and am trying other options for breakfast!

Breakfast Sandwich

I made the breakfast sandwiches from “Against All Grain: Meals Made Simple”. I messed up on them but they still turned out yummy! There was a small mixup on my part when cooking the sausage, so I had to improvise and mix the sausage in the scrambled eggs. In the original recipe there would actually be a sausage patty and eggs separate. I’ll read more carefully next time haha! But I strongly encourage you pick up a copy of Danielle Walker’s cookbooks or visit againstallgrain.com to get some amazing recipes!

Even though changing your diet may seem scary, it is so worth it to jump in and do it! I can honestly say that I feel a lot better with some of my health issues. YOU CAN DO IT TOO!
