/// Note: Here’s what seems to have happened causing the story below— I had a severe iodine deficiency, throwing off metabolism, blood pressure, blood sugar, causing Cfs and migraines. Now that iodine is supplemented I can drink veg juices w/o getting over-alkaline terrible results. Yayhoo! ///
Well. I got through about 3 days of morning celery juicing and became more and more nauseous, migrainey. Eventually remembered to check urine Ph and I was about a 9 for at least past 48 hours. I’d already been low energy but the nausea took things really over the edge.
Last year when I started seeing my latest naturopath, we’d come across the pattern of me being very high alkaline 8.5, 9 on urine Ph strips when I felt most ill. Added thyroid meds (tests came back borderline ‘ok’) and L-Carnitine, keto diet and alkalinity became nonissue. I think when tapering off keto is when I started to feel bit crappy.
Added LDN to my daily meds/supplements which lifted fatigue but that seemed to be completely ineffective past couple weeks. I didn’t take LDN yesterday and today feel like a million bucks. Still have to pace myself but brain is fully online.
Met with ND today and plan is to add LDN back at much reduced amount. It’s completely saved me from shingles outbreaks and did get rid of fatigue when I started– so eager to find a way to make it work. Hopefully the LDN sweet spot will equal brain and body energy with boosted immune system.
For now celery juice is banned from kitchen.
