I have been having a bloat problem with my new diet because of lots of raw veggies and the number one exercise recommended for bloat is bouncing!

(The diet suggested by Bernadette is very similar to the one I am following.)

ETA on 6/16:
Low carb flu is completely over.
A teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar in green tea after a gassy meal has prevented bloating.
My body has adjusted to eating mostly fruits and veggies and I have lost about 10 pounds and over an inch off my waist.
Feet feel completely different with less tingling and more sensations.
Energy and mood levels are better through-out the day.
Still Tinnitus and random aches and twinges.

One benefit I did not expect is that food tastes better.
Maybe the nerves to my taste buds needed regeneration LOL

Stress is not just a killer, shortening our lives, it can ruin the feeling of well-being daily.
We cannot change other people but we can change how our they affect our health.
I am refocusing on my own physical and mental health.

The traditional medical community added to my stress but luckily, I found an alternative health professional who is helping me heal.

Finding enjoyable ways of moving with music kept my muscles strong in spite of pain.
Now I am finding the energy to keep moving through-out the day.

TheRUMP definitely created loads of stress:

The stress produced by TheRUMP, his hateful supporters, and the GOP Congress is ruining the feeling of well-being for many.  He is a domestic terrorist, using words as weapons of mass destruction.

Mystery Diseases

Some diseases or unhealthy conditions are mysteries, including peripheral neuropathy.

I had 127 tests done and the results show inflammation and allergic reactions but no pollutant or food sources of either were identified.
My blood sugar and cortisol were slightly high.
Triglycerides, A1C, and Vitamin D levels have improved since last July after cutting back on refined carbs.
Omega3 fatty acids are too low and lipids/Cholesterol too high so now have new supplements added to my regimen.
Thyroid is fine.

An anti-inflammatory diet, supplements, and treatments to improve circulation are already decreasing the discomfort of peripheral neuropathy.   As I feel better physically, I feel better mentally and emotionally.  The fear of living with progressive pain has been alleviated.

This alternative treatment is expensive but worth every penny because traditional medicine was doing nothing for me but adding to my stress.  Cannot put a price on feeling well.

The Turning Point

After a week of the *low carb flu* (headache, brain fog, and moodiness),  I have finally turned the corner and am feeling darn good on a food plan that restricts refined carbs, dairy, and grain (gluten).
Besides eating mostly fruits and veggies, I am on fancy supplements as part of my treatment with a functional medicine specialist.  Also I have received 3 of the 24 treatments scheduled in his facility.

My energy level is through the roof and painful twinges are less common.
Peripheral Tingling is down a bit but not the Tinnitus.
Moodiness has been replaced with Euphoria.

As much as I may miss more variety in food, I do not miss the pain, fatigue, and hopelessness.
