There are days when I don’t turn on my computer. Don’t look at my phone.⁣ In fact, there are days when I don’t get out of bed.⁣ ⁣ Yeah, it gets that bad.⁣ ⁣ But even on those days I have a choice about how I see my situation.⁣ ⁣ I can choose to stress out about all the things I’m supposed to be doing instead of staying under the covers or I can release myself from expectations and allow my body to rest.⁣ ⁣ I can choose to get mad at the pain and feel sorry for myself or I can recognize that even this is making me a stronger, wiser, more patient, and more forgiving person.⁣ ⁣ Complaining about it is a choice.⁣ Smiling through it is a choice too.⁣ ⁣ Whatever you’re experiencing, there are choices available to you. ⁣ We don’t choose the physical symptoms but we get to choose how we’re going to react to them, behave despite them, and go through life alongside them.⁣ ⁣ Because WE choose how to live this life, not our illnesses! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #stopdraggingit#nutritioncoach #healthyeatingtips #justbreathe #holistichealing #stopsurvivinglife #foodasfuel #AIP #Keto #asthma #allergies #chronicwellness #autoimmunepaleo #autoimmune #scienceofone #jenniferdragonette #holistichealing #fibrofighter #inflammatorydisease #livethelifeyoulove #autoimmune #spoonielife#chornicillness #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #fibromyalgia #fatigue #chronicpain #mindfulness #chronicfatigue
🦌Wait till the end to hear his TA-DAAA! Rodney Reindeer is humming a tune to wish you all a Happy Aloha Friday as Mommee powers up with her tri-weekly infusion of Siltuximab to treat her Castleman Disease (CD). 🤗 🦄 It's also the first time for Mommee using her new POWER PORT that was implanted in her chest last Friday. After 2 years of treatments, goodbye pincushion arms and bruising from failed IV attempts, yay!🎉 I 🦒 Many people are unaware of rare diseases until you or your loved one are diagnosed with one. You never know what twists and turns your life will take, and what unexpected blessings and outcomes will unfold. 🦍 Siltuximab is the only drug FDA approved for CD. In the 2000s, Toclizumab (Actemra) which similarly blocks Interleukin-6, was developed and approved for CD in Japan. However, it was also found to be an effective treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), and subsequently in the US, it was only approved to treat RA. It is used off-label for some CD patients, but that involves a longer, winding road to get there. 🐉 Castleman Disease is classified as a rare disease. nih.gov states that, "In the United States, a rare disease is defined as a condition that affects fewer than 200,000 people. This definition was created by Congress in the Orphan Drug Act of 1983 to create financial incentives to encourage companies to develop new drugs for rare diseases. There may be as many as 7,000 rare diseases. The total number of Americans living with a rare disease is estimated at between 25-30 million. While individual diseases may be rare, the total number of people with a rare disease is large." #togetherWeAreStronger 🦅 💓Smudgie . . . #RareDisease #powerup #rodneyreindeer #humfortheholidays #InflammatoryDisease #interleukin6 #antiIL6 #MulticentricCastlemanDisease #CastlemanDisease #siltuximab #cdcn #MonoclonalAntibody #alohaspirit #squadpaws #spreadawareness #castlemanwarriors #castlemanwarrior #alohafriday #powerport #NeverGiveUp #hallmarkmoment
You know this story.⁣ Saying no to social outings with friends you used to love hanging out with.Because it’s a pain in the ass (literally and figuratively!!!) trying to find the “safe” foods and drinks on the menu.⁣ But here’s the thing - whether or not you choose to partake in the same foods & cocktails - you don’t have to give up the FUN!⁣ Sometimes I go out for pizza and beers with friends and I eat my salad with a smile because I’m soaking up the camaraderie and laughter of people who make me feel alive!⁣ And other times, I eat cake and drink whisky with the best of them, knowing full well I’ll pay for it the next day. Because the next day I’ll still have the warm and fuzzies from good times spent with loved ones.⁣ My point is, say YES to fun and adventure with your friends as often as possible.⁣ It’s about enjoying the laughter, no matter what’s on your plate.⁣ Choose FUN!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #stopdraggingit#nutritioncoach #healthyeatingtips #justbreathe #holistichealing #stopsurvivinglife #foodasfuel #AIP #Keto #asthma #allergies #chronicwellness #autoimmunepaleo #autoimmune #scienceofone #jenniferdragonette #holistichealing #fibrofighter #inflammatorydisease #livethelifeyoulove #autoimmune #spoonielife#chornicillness #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #fibromyalgia #fatigue #chronicpain #mindfulness #chronicfatigue

A hero can look like... Someone who lives in daily chronic pain... Or lives with a chronic illness... Or someone who spends more time in doctors offices and/or hospitals than they do with their friends... Or a parent who contends with a body that hurts all over and gets the laundry done, the house cleaned, goes to work and still manages to keep the kids fed + bathed + educated + loved + happy... A hero can look sick, or well... Or be depressed, anxious and snippy... Or grateful, hopeful and positive. A hero can grieve the life they lost or currently be creating a new one. A hero can be short, tall, skinny or fat... Or be able to do something today their body wouldn’t let them do yesterday. A hero can be wealthy or poor... Married or divorced...Live by themselves or live with their parents. A hero can take medication or choose not to and can be stuck in bed and exhausted... Or move around and be energetic. A hero is someone who chooses to get up every day in spite of their body betraying them. A hero looks just like...you. 😉 . . #youremyhero #beliveinyourself #weekendvibes #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicdisease #invisibleillness #butyoudontlooksick #endometriosis #dysautonomia #fibromyalgia #chronicfatigue #pelvicpain #backpain #migraine #arthritis #inflammatorydisease #pcos #spoonie #pain #painmanagement #integrativemedicine #mindbodymedicine #wellnesswarrior #wellnesscoach #considermypain

This year at #ODAC Biosimilars: Where We Are and Where We Are Going with Dr. Leon Kircik Over the last decade, the availability of biological medicines for the treatment of psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and many other inflammatory diseases has revolutionized the treatment of these afflictions around the world. However, the high cost of treatment has significantly reduced the availability of treatment, restricting treatment to only a narrow group of the most seriously ill patients. That is why there is so much interest in biosimilars, the introduction of which into therapy would be a less costly alternative to the treatment of a larger group of patients. Currently, the subject of biosimilars is one of the most important challenges and topics of discussion around the world, including pharmacovigilance and legal and economic regulatory standards. Join Dr. Leon Kircik as he guides you through the complex world of biosimilars, how they are different from generics, new biosimilar technologies, real life clinical application of biosimilars, and understand where we are and where we are going. . . . . . . . . . #biosimilar #biosimilars #psoriasis #psoriaticarthritis #inflammatorydisease #derm #dermatology #dermatologist #CME #dermlife #medicaleducation
I try. I try, I try, I try, and I try again.I’ve tried following my doctor’s orders to the letter.⁣ ⁣ I’ve tried sticking to the diet restrictions.⁣ ⁣ I’ve tried acupuncture, massage, yoga, and meditation (I'm at an Alternative Treatment Session in this Photo for the Records)⁣ ⁣ I’ve tried tests, overnight stays, more tests, and pills. ⁣ ⁣ I’ve tried books, herbs, oils, yoga, and everything else. I've changed my life with some of them, especially CBD. Bye, bye narcotics and anti-depressants.⁣ ⁣ Some of it worked.Some of it didn’t.ALL of it taught me that we actually have more options than we realize, when we start being solution-focused instead of problem-obsessed.⁣ It taught me that → I ← am in charge of my life, not my illness.⁣ ⁣ Who’s ready to try again, and take charge of your choices?⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #stopdraggingit#nutritioncoach #healthyeatingtips #justbreathe #holistichealing #stopsurvivinglife #foodasfuel #AIP #Keto #asthma #allergies #chronicwellness #autoimmunepaleo #autoimmune #scienceofone #jenniferdragonette #holistichealing #fibrofighter #inflammatorydisease #livethelifeyoulove #autoimmune #spoonielife#chornicillness #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #fibromyalgia #fatigue #chronicpain #mindfulness #chronicfatigue
A little bit about me. I’ve had endometriosis for over 20 years, multiple surgeries, fibroids removed, ovarian cysts removed. It took 5 full rounds of IVF to have my beautiful miracle daughter. I’m a Clinical Nurse and Staff Development Nurse which I love greatly. I have newly been diagnosed with Crohns Disease and I wanted to share my journey, education, diet and lifestyle in the journey to a healthier me. #endometriosis #ivf #ivfjourney #fibroids #inflammatorydisease #autoimmunedisease #crohns #crohnsdiet #hormonehealth #hormonebalancing #betterlife #painmanagement #invisibleillness #stressreduction #paleo #symptommanagement #nursing #letsdothis
Here’s another post for Crohn’s and Colitis week! This was my first tattoo ever😊 It says “live the life” or depending on the translation, in Italian it’s “living the life”. This was a reminder of the road ahead for me... It isn’t always going to be easy but to “live the life” because it’s a complete waste when you’re twittling your thumbs in the corner worrying and letting things control your life. Listen, I've lived with Colitis for around 6 years. It’s a roller coaster ride. if I had to pass on advice to anyone who is newly or already dealing with Ulcerative Colitis, it would be to stay positive and live the life. If you don’t it can negatively take control. Always stay on top of your meals, keep your loved ones close, and don’t let this condition contain you. BE FREE!! Good things will come. Get a tattoo 😉 It's a shame to leave an empty canvas!#crohnsandcolitisawarenessweek #ibdawareness #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #inflammatorydisease #crohnsandcolitiscanada #live #life #staypositive #getatattoo #tattoo #tatted #december #support #family #friends

Let me talk about poop 💩. It's a touchy subject a lot of people can't really talk about with a straight 🤣. I know, I am one of those people, but when you can't go no matter what you drink, eat, or take, it hurts...a lot! Most days I dont wanna go out anywhere or do anything because I'm so blocked up it hurts to breath. I was diagnosed with diverticulitis/dicerticulosis on may 30th of this year. It took them two whole months to figure out what was wrong with me, why I couldn't go, why I was severely nauseous, why I couldn't stop dryheaving, and why most foods caused me pains. Now I know. I immediately changed the way I looked at food, I went from OMG SO DELICIOUS to are you going to kill me if I have you today? Two weeks ago my stomach wouldn't stop bothering me, my nausea got worse and my pains were increasing. Two weeks ago I decided to make a change. I started keto. With high fats/protein and very little to no carbs, I noticed a difference. My stomach agreed on food. Not much, but it liked the high fats and proteins. I had to say no to potatoes 🥔, the most difficult decision I have ever had to make. 😭 If you don't know, divers is an inflammatory disease that affects the colon, causing pockets to form. It causes infections, pain, nausea, makes your body like one food one week and then the next you can't eat it at all. Ultimately it can cause sepsis if you don't get help right away, or a pocket may burst at any given time putting you into the hospital for weeks on end. Usually this is something you'd get in your 60's, I was 32, 28 years early, and I'm not alone. I do get really excited when I poop, so making this meme is my way of saying I FECKIN POOPED TODAY! 💩💩💩💩 #poop #ipoopedtoday #diverticulitis #diverticulosis #pooptroubles #foodwars #lolz #poopwars #💩 #🥔 #comeatmebro #inflammation #inflammatorydisease #feckoff #disease
Couple Disney trips ago I had a great food day - gf Mickey waffles at #carnationcafe then shared some gf nachos from a very gf friendly restaurant in downtown Disney @tortillajos and then had my first ever experience at Salt and Straw and was BLOWN AWAY at the holiday peppermint bark ice cream.

Talking all things inflammation 🔥on the blog. It is something I’ve personally been dealing with and working on. Chronic inflammation is at the root 🌱of many chronic conditions but did you know there are ways to reduce ⬇️ the inflammation?

Did you know that getting enough rest can help reduce inflammation and increase your energy?It’s true!This is just one of many non-dietary remedies that help you flip the switch between slogging through each day with chronic illness and thriving in life despite your illness.⁣ Here are a few tips to help ensure you’re getting enough sleep and that your sleep is deep enough to heal your body:⁣ - spend your last hour before bed enjoying tech-free time- use blackout curtains if your bedroom doesn’t get dark enough- move ALL electronics except for lights out of your bedroom (some power supplies make high pitch noises that aren’t always perceptible to your ears but can disrupt sleep nonetheless)- if you can’t kick your cellphone out of the room, at least turn off wi-fi before bed to reduce EMF emissions which can also disrupt sleep- avoid caffeine and chocolate within 6 hours of your bedtime⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #stopdraggingit#nutritioncoach #healthyeatingtips #justbreathe #holistichealing #stopsurvivinglife #foodasfuel #AIP #Keto #asthma #allergies #chronicwellness #autoimmunepaleo #autoimmune #scienceofone #jenniferdragonette #holistichealing #fibrofighter #inflammatorydisease #livethelifeyoulove #autoimmune #spoonielife#chornicillness #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #fibromyalgia #fatigue #chronicpain #mindfulness #chronicfatigue

These little powerhouse oils I ordered this month ( and possibly a few others yet to arrive) the one I’m most excited about is the copabia oil and I’m going to be honest here this is one of the oils I’m hoping will make a difference with lockie! It’s a known neuro protective that naturally supports the endocannabinoid system in the body, much like the illegal ( in Australia) CBD oil but without the psychoactive ingredients of THC. Both copabia and CBD effect the CB2 receptors in the brain. These receptors help to reduce inflammation and pain in the body. Lockies disease is an inflammatory disease, where muscles are destroyed and replaced by fibroid making the muscles useless. Fight the inflammation reduce the muscle wastage. That’s the aim of the game! We also want to target pain relief because I don’t see it beneficial to place a child of the age of 4 on opioids to reduce the pain of a night time enough for him to sleep! • Second truth for the evening I would be using CBD oil for lockie both orally and topically if it was legal in Australia, I have educated myself enough through the right channels to know that our future in Australia ( following on behind the rest of the world 🙄) to fight, manage and heal disease will be CBD oil including oils that do contain higher percentages of THC because when managed correctly the results speak for themselves. From effectively managing “unmanageable epilepsy” through to crohns disease, Autism Spectrum disorders and neurological degenerative disease, not to mention eliminate opioid usage as pain management with low THC high CBD oils! So there’s my little truths for the day, I’ll be putting together a copabia, arborvitae, natural butter to rub into lockies legs which are already starting to degenerate, this will without a doubt help to manage his pain alongside Panadol ( if it is needed) eliminating the need for opioid usage 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌 • • • • • • • • • • • • • #naturalhealing #wholistic #nutritionalmedicine #nutritionist #essentialoil #copabia #duchenne #inflammatorydisease #healthconscious #healthylifestyle #duchenneheroes #doterralove #doterra #selfempowered #love #family #childhoodunplugged #childhooddisease

I woke up today with an AS flare. 😣How do you deal with unexpected flare-ups? --------------------- Back in September, I visited a good friend in San Francisco. While wandering around alone one day, I decided to make the trek to this classic, tourist spot. Just like this sign on Lombard Street, healing your body is not an easy, straight path. It takes time; it’s a slow and winding road. But when I arrived, I was stunned to see how small and seemingly insignificant this little road was; I had imagined a cascading, hill of winding turns and crammed with cars. Instead, it was a modest, dainty residential block. While it may have felt chaotic, it only took a few slow turns for these cars to make it through, really just enough time to take some photos and exit the crowd. Your journey to health may also feel this way; it can be overwhelming and seemingly inescapable, but it’s often just a little, winding rode you have to get through. ---------------------- I still have moments when my autoimmune disease flares up (like today! 😣) and I start to feel lost, but then I remember all of the times I made it through. I take it as a chance to make lifestyle changes, stay positive and heal my crying body. ------------------------- Just know that even people who live and breath a “healthy” journey come across our own Lombard Streets. 💕 ------------------------- Much love and healing to you all! ☺️Healing comes with sharing and building communities. Have you found your own autoimmune support community? 😊 • • • #functionalmedicine #nutrition #mentalhealth #mindfulnutrition #healthcoach #wellness #autoimmunedisease #ankylosingspondylitis #arthritis #inflammatorydisease #purposedriven #functionalnutrition #spoonie #wellnessjourney #personalizednutrition #rheumatoidarthritis #spondylitis #plantbaseddiet #nutritionist #vegan #autoimmunewellness #nutritioncoach #healthandwellness #autoimmunity #autoimmune #autoimmunecommunity #rheumatology
It’s hard to imagine a life full of parties, traveling, sports, having lunch with your girlfriends, and all your favorite activities when it hurts just getting out of bed.⁣ But it IS possible to have a life filled joy, energy, adventure, and love, even on the crappy days.⁣ I’m proof that this is possible.

Life with autoimmune & inflammatory diseases is not something I want to be a part of my story anymore. Truth? My relationship with how I nourish my body is the most complicated relationship I have, if I’m honest, I go into avoidance because it triggers me back into the lifestyle I had before, diet obsession - thinking of food, my weight & what I could & couldn’t eat, tracking & planning, food prep days, and bringing food with me everywhere, having to be “that person” at the restaurant who has mods on the mods...or just resorting to eating only rice & chicken or rice & veggies 🤢🤢🤢 on repeat for months. My inner child rebels, and wants to just “pretend” I don’t have these issues and I’ll eat like a “normal” person, almost like an act of self harm, because I know no good will come of it. It affects everything I do. I live in constant pain & discomfort, anxiety & fear, overthinking & completely checking out. I’ve tried it all. But my pattern is always the same. It never lasts and I go from one extreme to the other, all or nothing. These patterns & behaviours do not serve me and I am so ready to shed them for good and really dig in to rewire these pathways. This is my deep dark scary “secret” (even though not really because I’ve shared it before) I’m not ashamed. I’m tired. I am not beating myself up. I’m over that. I’m not looking for someone to save me, I want to save myself. I’ve come a long way in The past year uncovering these things. Facing them, bringing awareness. Integration has always been that missing link. But I’m closer. And I won’t give up. I don’t know why I’m sharing this, if not only just for my own processing & healing but just in case someone else is feeling this...going through this. Feeling alone like I feel. Feeling shame & disappointment. You’re not alone. This shit is hard, but you’re worth fighting for. ❤️

🧠 The Inflamed Mind... . 📚 Definitely needs to be the next book I purchase! . 🧐Looking at the (albeit limited at present) research linking mental health to inflammation, I am convinced that inflammation plays a critical role in mental health. . 📊Now, The Inflamed Mind by Edward Bullmore sets out this link & hopefully in doing so will inspire more research into psychiatry. . ❤️Our physical health, fitness & nutrition all have critical roles to play in inflammation. It also produces a route of pharmacological intervention we haven’t considered before. . 🔎It’s exciting to be coming into psychiatry at a time when expansion is on the horizon. . . . . . . #psychiatry #theinflamedmind #psychiatryresearch #mindbody #mindbodylink #depression #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthresearch #inflammation #mentalhealthdisorders #psychiatryadvances #holistichealth #holistichealing #lifestylemedicine #lifestyleintervention #healthylifestyle #healthynutrition #preventativehealth #preventativemedicine #publichealth #globalhealth #publichealthresearch #inflammatorydisease
Today I am having a Go-Me kinda day, the kinda day that makes me so darn excited just to be alive in this day & age, this time of infinite possibilities and limitless reach!⁣ So I am going to share THREE life-changing, reality-altering pieces of wisdom with you today, the kind people only share under threat of bodily harm haaa!⁣ First: you don't have to survive life, you can live it, fully even with chronic crap⁣ Second: never settle for a treatment plan that doesn't feel right for your body⁣ Third & probably the most crucial because it is not a START DOING but a STOP DOING advice: stop listening to all the people that tell you "this diet" is the way to heal your condition⁣ If you do nothing else and just follow the three scraps of wisdom above, you will be blown away how your life will change in mere weeks.⁣ Thank me later and better yes, send chocolate as a thank you note.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #stopdraggingit#nutritioncoach #healthyeatingtips #justbreathe #holistichealing #stopsurvivinglife #foodasfuel #AIP #Keto #asthma #allergies #chronicwellness #autoimmunepaleo #autoimmune #scienceofone #jenniferdragonette #holistichealing #fibrofighter #inflammatorydisease #livethelifeyoulove #autoimmune #spoonielife#chornicillness #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #fibromyalgia #fatigue #chronicpain #mindfulness #chronicfatigue
Turmeric/Cúrcuma (English below) . 🇪🇸 Últimamente he oído hablar mucho de la cúrcuma, con lo que cuando la vi en la parte Bio del Carrefour no pude resistirme. Es parecido al jengibre de color amarillo/naranja utilizado como colorante natural (tiñe los dedos!!) . Científicamente se ha demostrado que la Curcumina, componente activo, tiene efectos antioxidantes y antiinflamatorios. Interesante cuando tenemos un resfriado...A día de hoy solo se ha demostrado reducir la rigidez y en el dolor de la artritis. Teniendo potencial para tratar enfermedades inflamatorias crónicas como colitis, osteoartritis, enfermedades cardiovasculares y la depresión. . Se ha demostrado que para mejorar la absorción de la Curcumina es mejor emparejarla con la Piperina, pimienta negra. De ahí que muchas leches doradas lleven pimienta 😉 . Como lo incorporas tu en la dieta? Tienes algún consejo? . 🇺🇸 There has been a lot of hype around turmeric lately so when I saw it at my local store I couldn’t help but buy it. Similar to ginger, but orangey yellow colour, it is used as a natural dye (dyes your fingers too!) . Curcumin, active component of turmeric, has been scientifically proven to be a great antioxidant and antiinflammatory! Something to be considered with a cold. It has been shown to have an effect on the pain and rigidity of arthritis. It may have a role in other chronic inflammation diseases such as colitis, osteoarthritis, depression and cardiovascular diseases. . Curcumin is better absorbed when paired up with Piperine, present in black pepper. Probably why golden lattes have black pepper in them 👌🏻 . How do you incorporate it in your diet? Any advice? . #sciencebased #nutritionalist #nutritional #antioxidant #antioxidante #antiinflammatory #antiinflamatorio #artritis #arthritis #inflammatorydisease #adn #basadoenhechosreales #scientificallyproven #turmeric #curcuma #curcumina #curcumin #naturalsymmetry #naturaldyes #colorantenatural
Don’t compare your bad days to good days.They can’t be measured on the same scale.You wouldn’t compare your skills while being drunk to what you can do when you’re completely sober, right?Just like there are levels of sober, there are also levels of well.When you’re sober, you can do all kinds of things exceptionally well. Hold a conversation, do math, drive a car, and so on. When you’re drunk, you don’t do any of those things well.Same with wellness. You are an amazing person every single day! Even on days when you can’t get out of bed.But you can’t expect to be able to do all the things, every single day. Some days you don’t do any of the things well. And that’s ok.Just don’t compare that to good days!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #stopdraggingit#nutritioncoach #healthyeatingtips #justbreathe #holistichealing #stopsurvivinglife #foodasfuel #AIP #Keto #asthma #allergies #chronicwellness #autoimmunepaleo #autoimmune #scienceofone #jenniferdragonette #holistichealing #fibrofighter #inflammatorydisease #livethelifeyoulove #autoimmune #spoonielife#chornicillness #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #fibromyalgia #fatigue #chronicpain #mindfulness #chronicfatigue
Do you ever find that you feel stuck in a sick care system? What does that mean? It means you feel that you are only being treated for the sickness, never fully diving into the root of the illness itself. I hear you. I was a member of the sick care system for a long time. I was on tons of pills, seeing mental health professionals and had 12 different specialists and still felt like crap. Sick care doesn't help. It's a Band-Aid on the severed leg. It might hold back some of the blood for a minute, but then BAM it all rushes out. That's why I love what I do. I help women find ways to work with the sick care system to feel like a Well Care checkup system or only an acute care system. It's freaking amazing. What about you? Do you feel you are stuck in the sick care system?⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #stopdraggingit#nutritioncoach #healthyeatingtips #justbreathe #holistichealing #stopsurvivinglife #foodasfuel #AIP #Keto #asthma #allergies #chronicwellness #autoimmunepaleo #autoimmune #scienceofone #jenniferdragonette #holistichealing #fibrofighter #inflammatorydisease #livethelifeyoulove #autoimmune #spoonielife#chornicillness #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #fibromyalgia #fatigue #chronicpain #mindfulness #chronicfatigue
📚Teaching Tuesday📚 Omegas: omega 3, 6, and 9 are fatty acids the body needs in proper balance to maintain good health. When the balance becomes skewed, chronic disease can occur. . Omega-3s are essential fatty acids your body can’t produce. Deep sea, oily fish are the richest source. The World Health Organization recommends 2-3 servings a week to meet minimum levels. Of the omega-3s, EPA and DHA are most important. EPA reduces inflammation and symptoms of depression. DHA makes up 8% of brain weight, making it key for brain development,function, and plasticity. Overall, Omega-3s are crucial for heart health, increasing good cholesterol, reducing triglycerides, lowering blood pressure, supporting mental health, reducing asthma symptoms, and playing a part in weight management. As many of us don’t get a sufficient amount through oily fish, look for a supplement with a high overall omega-3 level (2500), but KEY is a high EPA/DHA ratio (900:600) . Omega-6 also has to be derived from foods and is used mostly for energy. The ratio of omega-6 to 3 should be 4:1, but the standard American diet puts this at at 10:1 to a 50:1 ratio bc of consumption of processed foods, seeds, nuts, and vegetable oils. This massively unbalanced ratio is a driver for chronic disease and inflammation. . Omega-9 can be produced in the body and is the most abundant fat in cells. It can also be found in olive and avocado oils and many nuts. Supplementation is not usually needed for omega-6 or 9 due to the high ratio present from diet. To rectify this, consume 2-3 servings of oily fish 🐟(salmon, mackerel, sardines) or supplement with a high EPA/DHA ratio omega-3. The benefits are huge, impacting nearly every system in the body!

Implants are known to cause weight gain in many women that they are unable to lose no matter what they do. It’s bc of the Inflammatory response the body mounts against the implants. Many inflammatory illnesses plague women with implants, as well as weight gain. (and MANY other health issues caused by toxins that leach out of implants 🤬🤬) . Over the last 3 years, most days I barely ate bc of the pain food caused me. I ate healthy. Activity wise, I haven’t been active and spend most days in bed bc of pain. My activity level hasn’t yet changed since explanting. This weight loss is strictly from inflammation. I started PP in August but not more strictly until September. . . So 20lbs in 2 1/2 months!! . . I can’t wait til I’m healed enough to see how I can increase activity and the biggest test, to see how my pain levels are. My hope is that now that the implants are out, inflammation will decrease and that will see my gut issues resolve!! . .

About last night... Going plant-based to reduce inflammation is not about all of the things you are giving up. It's about embracing a new and more vibrant lifestyle, full of delicious food that you wouldn't have otherwise been open to. If you don't change your mindset about food, you will never experience all that plant-based living has to offer. Last night is surprised my hubby with a date night at one of our favourite restaurants! Planta Toronto I would love to record an episode on the Jennifer Zee Podcast live from this restaurant.

Happy Monday! @traderjoes is finally carrying gluten free everything bagels!! For a long while they only had plain and cinnamon raisin. Before going gluten free, bagels were my favorite thing in the world. Now that I’ve been on a weight loss journey I try to NEVER eat them and it was easy because no one really had a good gf one. But now all that has changed - not only are everything bagels my fave kind of bagel but this TJ’s one is SO good. I don’t really remember gluten food but I swear this bagel doesn’t taste gf. So here I am, treating myself a bit. This holiday season I’ve decided to maintain my weight and then 1/2/19 go for my overall GOAL weight. Next holiday season I’m excited that I will be at my goal! 💪🏻💪🏻Tis the season! * * * #glutenfreesocal #glutenfree #glutenfreecalifornia #glutenfreefood #glutenfreegoodies #inflammatorydisease #pcos #glutenfreeeats #glutenfreelifestyle #glutenfreeLA #glutenfreeOC #glutenfreelife #glutenfreetraderjoes #traderjoesglutenfree #glutenfreebagel #glutenfreebagels #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #weightlossgoals #fitnessmotivation #fitness #extremeweightloss #naturalweightloss #100lbsdown #traderjoes

Not the most flattering pictures but this is real life, this is what I woke up with this morning(and every morning the past 2 weeks). Lips puffy, itching, burning, and splitting open from being swollen. I can’t open my mouth too wide or smile or laugh because it hurts and causes more splitting. Mayo Clinic in a week, I’m praying for God’s direction and for him to help and guide the doctors. ................................. #autoimmunediseaseawareness #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #chronicdisease #chronicpain #inflammation #inflammatorydisease #undiagnosed #undiagnosedillness #chronicallyill #chronicillness #hae #hereditaryangioedema #acquiredangioedema #angioedema #swelling
Rheumatoid Arthritis This autoimmune disorder affects your joints and causes swelling and pain. Over time, inflammation can damage your cartilage and bones, and you can’t move them as well. RA also can cause problems with your heart and lungs. Medications can help with symptoms and slow the disease down. #jointdisease #rheumatoidarthritis #medicalgeek #inflammatorydisease #rheumatology #medicalstudent #instamedics
Happy Aloha POWER-UP Friday! Mommee is getting her every-three-week Castleman Disease (CD) infusion today to help keep her STRONG! . Today Mommee's with SUPER mushroom from Super Mario Bros! Haff a wonderful weekend and remember that we all need a boost every so often! . For those who are still reading (😉) the drug is Siltuximab, a monoclonal antibody FDA approved for CD treatment. It blocks excess interleukin-6 (IL-6), a protein produced by immune system cells that can activate inflammatory and auto-immune processes. High levels of IL-6 is has also been observed in autoimmune diseases, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer's Disease, and other conditions. Symptoms of CD are similar to lymphoma, and include enlarged lymph nodes, fatigue, night sweats, and itching. Since the drug only blocks IL-6, it is a lifelong treatment. 💓Smudgie . . . #RareDisease #InflammatoryDisease #interleukin6 #antiIL6 #MulticentricCastlemanDisease #CastlemanDisease #siltuximab #cdcn #MonoclonalAntibody #alohaspirit #spreadawareness #castlemanwarriors #castlemanwarrior #alohafriday #togetherWeAreStronger #powerup #supermushroom #powerupmushroom #NeverGiveUp #StuffedAnimal #mariobros #supermariobros
I don’t promote it on my personal IG, but I am the publisher of an independent food and beverage publication entitled @craftbyumh. I’d love to hear from folks that are struggling to find quality cocktail ingredients, beers, foods, etc. that they can enjoy on keto, carnivore, GF, and so on. #Repost @craftbyumh ・・・ Due to autoimmune disease, I have had to change my way of eating drastically and it has made me wonder how many folks out there with similar issues or dietary restrictions need help finding products created by indie food and drink makers that they can enjoy.

I haven't worked out in over a week! . My life has consisted of all the comfort foods, soup, pizza and grilled cheese sandwiches. Oh and I'm on my second round of steroids which make you want to eat 10 times more food! . Despite all that,my results have not disappeared. Just like results don't happen overnight, they aren't going to disappear in a weeks time.😂 My body is healing from being sick and in pain, so if I want all the confort food for a week straight, so be it.

When life hands you two hands of $#!% (poop) make a joke. I know chronic illness is no fun, and trust me there are days when I want to give up and say F' this I'm over it. Those days I choose to shift my focus onto something funny when possible. Maybe keep a journal of moments in your life that made you laugh. Maybe you have a journal of all the poop jokes you have found along the years. Maybe you are just laughing at yourself because you thought you had to fart and instead you sharted again. If you aren't laughing you're not living. Laughter makes the crap chronic illness gives you so much easier to deal with. And guess what, you get to start living life, not surviving it. That's pretty freaking awesome right. Here is a link to a free DIY tool to get you shifting your focus from the $#!% to the funny side of the $#!%. It's how I first started gaining control of my life again, even with tons of diagnoses and symptoms. You can choose to live your life. Not just survive it and here is the first step to gaining that control!⁣ ⁣ Check out DIAGNOSED FREEDOM in the [Free Stuff] link in my bio!

The heal is REAL! . Just 5 days between photos. The top are the before I explanted (removed) my breast implants (and capsules) and the bottom, today. I noticed a difference the next day how much brighter my face looked and just decided to compare. The colour returned is crazy!! My skin is clearing up too! The acne I had on my upper back (Never had before implants), is gone as well! Also, my face has been so dry and now it has oil and moisture again :) . . I will post more as time goes on, but it’s incredible how many things are better almost right after explanting. My joint pain was gone immediately as well. My wrists were hurting so bad prior to surgery, the night before was difficult to sleep. But it’s the ENERGY I have now that is most amazing. I lived with chronic fatigue for a long time. Always so exhausted no matter how much I slept. I have barely slept since surgery because I have to sleep on my back, but I am not exhausted anymore. I’m tired, but just normal tired. If you’ve ever struggled with chronic fatigue you’ll know what I mean. . I know I have rough days to come as I detox out the chemicals from the implants, but I am so happy it’s behind me now and real healing and health are in my reach! . .
