It’s my son’s birthday today! I can’t believe it! We managed to make it a full year, breastfeeding (even with my health issues), and without any sicknesses! And he’s standing! I am such a proud and thankful mama!
Last month, Dr. Oz listed ginger as the herb of the month. Ginger is supposed to provide anti-inflammatory responses to a stressed body. I have to admit that I have been stressed physically recently. I don’t know why (we live a pretty serene life and have so much to be grateful for) but I have read that people who have Celiac’s Disease can have a hard time absorbing tryptophan and in turn getting the seratonin needed to feel well. I am hopeful that over time, with supplements, I’ll feel better!
I recently started drinking this wonderful ginger, lemon probiotic tea to hopefully get the health benefits that were suggested.
I have now agreed to take any lactose products and vegetables like broccoli (that cause gas) out of my diet to decrease inflammation. Now to relax!
