Reboot NewbiesPosted by WendyHurts on 2 years ago
I am a first timer in the juicing department, helping myself and my hubby with some pretty heavy health issues. I have struggled with Fibromyalgia for almost 18 years and I'm done with it. Hubby was recently diagnosed with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis, and the thought of him being on one of those awful biologic medications scares the tar out of me. I've seen those commercials for humira and embrel, and the side effects sometimes seem worse than the disease. And the med they want him on isn't even approved for PPMS.
I have spent this last week on a transition away from unhealthy foods, because I have a tendency toward IBS-D and sometimes have a difficult time with raw veggies. It has been pretty uneventful, though the scale says I have gained a pound (which I can sort of understand, because I am packing more nutritious foods than I am used to into my daily routine.) Tomorrow is the "big day" starting a 30 day juice fast, with my doctor's blessing. Currently, aside from the Fibromyalgia, I am type 2 diabetic with hypertension and severe arthritis in my spine (my last MRI shows my spine to look like someone twice my age with degenerative disk disease, which is terrible since I'm still relatively young.)
I'm sure I'll have some questions as this gets swung into high gear, but I'm so looking forward to getting thinner, getting healthier and reducing pain, maybe for the first time in 18 years.
If it is to be, it is up to me!
