Full Episode transcript:

Welcome to a Cyster and her Mister. A podcast where we show you the real behind the scenes of how we balance the PCOS lifestyle in our marriage, gluten and dairy free. I’m telling your fellow Cyster and registered dietician And I’m Sirak husband, engineer, and PCOS personal trainer. We’re going to make PCOS a little less overwhelming and a lot more fun coffee cup.

Just let it be there. No it’s gonna spill. No, no. It’s okay. The arm, let’s see if I try to struggle. Oh my God. This is what Cedric does. Every time he drinks coffee, he can, he tries to convince me that he’s not going to spill it. So he puts it on the couch, on the couch.

He puts it on the couch. He was at the edge of the table. He’s like, no, it’s not going to spill. It’s not going to, he’ll put it on the arm of the couch too. I’ll just push it the cup just out a little bit. So just the edge of it sticks out, just annoying. And I’m sitting on a huge coffee stain that he had when I wasn’t home.

One day he spilled an entire cup of coffee on it. Yeah. So, you know, I don’t do it when you’re, when you’re not here to like I do do, or, you know, I put it on the couch cause I felt like it was stable enough. But then I didn’t realize when I got up, it gave it seismic activity too.

And it spilled What you happened. What happens when you marry? You engineered. It’s true. Well, it’s the quarantine ages, ladies and gentlemen, teenagers. We are still quarantine as probably everybody else’s too. Uh, but I’m cool with it. Our thing. Yeah. We’re cool with it. We’re getting used to it. We just hope everybody out there is safe.

And you know, I think thank you to all the doctors and nurses and all the people that first responders, Darren doing their thing, you know, like there’s a lot of people risking their lives for it. Yeah. We have some family and friends who are doctors risking their lives, trying to save people. And I’m reading all of these awful like articles of what’s happening out there.

It’s no joke. Yeah. So stay home. Yes. So let’s go into the episode today, which is PCs types, the different kinds of PCOS types and pretty much we’ll discuss what you can do for each type and give you a good summary. Many of you listening may not even realize until right now that there are different PCs types and you can have a combination of different types.

And this is not often introduced when you go to the doctor’s office because they’ll look at your blood work and they’ll be like, Oh, you have blood sugar issues. And then they’ll just eat Metformin. They won’t be like, you have insulin resistance. This is a PCs type. So it gets a little bit messy, but it’s good to know these different types that we’re going to talk about.

Yeah. Cause if someone just says, Oh yeah, peace us. It’s a very broad approach. You’re going to have to take, you don’t know. What’s the first thing should do focus on my fatigue. Focus on my instrument. Yeah. So it’s, it’s really good. It’s really good to know which type you should have. You have. So PCLs like you said,

there’s all these different symptoms. It’s actually, it’s a syndrome, which means there’s multiple underlying issues. And then it manifests in different ways on people. So some people might have acne, some women might have hair loss. Some women might be skinny. Some women might struggle with their weight loss. And so everyone looks different because PCs is a syndrome. There’s multiple underlying issues and everyone doesn’t look the same.

So we were going to tell you, before we go into these different types of PCs, um, how to be diagnosed with PCO S and C, Cedric always asks me this every time he’s having. Cause it’s, I often forget that there’s three criteria. You have to have two out of the three days. I’m always Teetering on the edge between different types.

Like I know what they are mostly, but like sometimes I even like forget if one is one or two is combined, but now I know, especially after this party, guests very clear is irregular period. Yes. Pre androgen aneurysm, and three polycystic ovaries. And you need to have two out of three, two out of three. What was it?

What was it? What was the last one? Honestly, I’ve forgotten through like, someone’s done a live with me and yeah. They’re like, how are you diagnosed? And I forgot the irregular periods when I was like, there’s a third criteria. Well, let’s repeat it. So first irregular periods to hyperandrogenism, that includes facial hair, acne, mood swings,

weight issues, hair loss. So hyperandrogenism is basically the effect of having too much of the, uh, like testosterone and other like male hormones, I believe. Yeah. And number three is polycystic ovaries. So those are the, you know, the, the painful, sometimes painful cystic ovaries that, um, women can have. And that, yeah,

that’s what happened to Tallinn, hers ruptured. And that’s how she found out about her pizza. So that’s a, that’s like the worst way of finding out probably. But, um, that’s one of the, so if you have two out of three, then you know, you have PSUs or that you could have peace us. Yeah. I mean,

it’s a painful experience to have a cyst rupture and then be diagnosed. But then, you know, now that you said that there are people who don’t have cysts and then they struggle with these symptoms, like irregular periods and hyperandrogenism, which is like a little bit easier to sweep under the rug and just like struggle with, for years and years without saying anything,

you know? And then that’s how PCO snowballs into having like all a combination of these different types of PCOS. But, you know, I just want, it’s like throw that in there because a lot of sisters out there DME after like years of having PCs and they’re like, I don’t know what’s going on. I have all these symptoms. And like it’s blown out of her.

I have all four PCs types. And so Yeah, you can have a combination. So you have to combine the solutions and make sure you’re treating all the both or to like three different types that you see. Yeah, exactly. Which is just more self care, more fun. Sure. I’m constantly treating my PCs type, you know, insulin resistance.

I’m like taking Avastin, tol um, adrenal fatigue. I always try to like winds down at night. You’re really good at that. So it’s helpful to me. Yeah. Kind of force you to do it too. Sometimes you’re like too much, like trying to work too much at night. I’m like tying, get off, take your book out,

watch TV, something I’m done with you working on the couch. So proactive. What did you say less? They, what? Less that we watch TV. We didn’t do any, we didn’t read stretch. Yeah. It was. I think we just had, because today’s just, we just decided to, yeah. We just decided to, And then I was like,

let’s go to bed. Let’s meditate and sleep. And you’re like, stop trying to be pro. Yeah. And I was like, it’s 11 o’clock and you were being practiced right now. All right. Let’s go into the different types of PCs. Let’s spill the tea. So the first type is insulin resistance, which is the most common cause of peace PCs.

70% of sisters have this type of piece Jewess and basically insulin resistance is a in regards to your blood sugar. And um, it’s like your blood sugar going up and down a lot because your body’s not able to keep it well balanced. So this results in you getting like hangry a lot. And then you’re T you’re awakened temporarily go down and come back up.

And it’s just because your cravings are all over the place and it’s duty to sugar. And that can be a big sign of insulin resistance. Yeah. Yeah. And you can heal it with the proper lifestyle and, um, supplements, but to a certain extent, it’ll come back. If you don’t continue to eat healthy and you know, going gluten and dairy free helps with insulin.

You’ve heard us say this before. So like, if you, you know, don’t do certain diet and lifestyle changes, it can come back. And it’s basically when the hormone insulin, this hormone is supposed to, um, go into yourself, tell yourselves, like open up and give yourselves the sugar that comes from the food that you’re eating to burn for energy.

And when your cells are resistant to insulin, they can’t burn it up. And the sugar goes in stores as fat. And then we gained weight uncontrollably. And then the insulin hormone goes to your ovaries and triggers high testosterone. And then we have symptoms. Okay. There’s like hair loss, hair growth, acne, weight issues, whatever it may be.

So it causes all of these issues because the cell is like not responding to insulin. And so that’s one type of PCOS. And so, you know, we said the symptoms and basically diet and lifestyle like gluten and dairy free, like studies show that dairy can really help with insulin levels and, um, yeah. Lowering. And you can also take an insulin glucose tolerance test at the doctor’s office to be sure,

to be sure to see if you have it. And you know, we talked about this in the past, but like a lot of times they, they, um, prescribe Metformin, which is a prescription. However, it is a good natural supplement option as well called Lovaza tol many of you probably heard it. That’s what we like. I mean,

it’s up to you, but like it’s a natural option. So you could try that first. And yeah, It works just like Metformin. We had a podcast. Yeah. We had a episode PCO as a Metformin. So you can listen to that to really know the pros and cons of Metformin. But in regards to like right now, like a natural option is have acid hall and you know,

Yeah. It’s a vitamin B eight supplements, not a drug. So it it’s, it has less side effects. And of course you want to take it with food. So your blood sugar doesn’t drop, you know, sometimes with the PCs, you like think that cutting calories is going to help you lose weight and that’s not there. And there’s great,

like evidence like anecdotal evidence based on testimonials. And we always show it on, on Instagram as well. All these sisters were taking it and in the sisterhood, all these sisters would take it and they show like so much improvement periods are back on their regular cycle and things are like a lot better in regards to their hormones. So, And you know,

it’s important to note that taking a Raza tall needs to be combined with diet and lifestyle change or else you’re not going to reverse symptoms. You’re just going to stay the same. So that’s why a lot of sisters see such good results by going gluten, dairy free and taking the Avast to talk. Cause it’s really targeting the insulin resistance issue that so many women with PCOS have,

and it’s reversing it instead of having it just like, you know, Oh, basketball eat unhealthy. Okay. Yeah. It’s like, if you’re trying to be healthy, so I’m gonna take a multivitamin, but I’m still gonna eat like unhealthy stuff. So like that wouldn’t really do a good for your body. This same thing with healing, your place us,

you gotta do that. And that to really make sure the whole body is good. The bottom line is diet change ladies. So in the podcast description, we do have a link for basketball and we have a 15% of a PRC code too. So check that out supplement. We Should stop talking about it and move on to the next Number two, the second type of piece us is inflammation.

And that can be really where it all begins. And inflammation is like the immune response to anything that your body recognizes as foreign, such as gluten. Yeah. In the notes I put them in. Yeah. I mean, if you’re eating gluten and dairy every day, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you’re constantly triggering an inflammatory response. If you’re sensitive to it and you’re causing systemic inflammation,

oftentimes you are like, what’s inflammation. Like what’s clear basically it’s when your cells are inflamed and they’re not responsive to, for example, insulin. Yeah. But like inflammation is also when, like, like we said earlier, like to your body is things said, there’s something, yeah. Something attacking itself. So it sends soldiers to kind of like battle.

And, but that creates like this area of pain because this like, you know, quote unquote battle is going on, this inflammation is going on. And that’s what really happens in areas of our body. Like when you eat gluten for women with PCs, especially it’s cause it’s body is thinking, it’s like this foreign thing and it’s causing this inflammation because the body’s battling it.

It’s literally using up its resources. And then that can cause everything else. Yeah. Because yeah, we talked about in a recent episode too. Um, we said, and I love this is when your body starts to focus on fighting inflammation, it stops. Um, or, or I, I remember now when your body goes into stress mode and starts accumulating all this inflammation,

it stops doing things like, uh, based on recovery, like your nails. Yeah. Your nail, your face and your skin, all these things start to kind of like, um, not be focused on by the body and they dwindle as a result. So like, that’s true. So it’s such a big effect. Inflammation can cause, Right.

And it all comes down to your day to day activity and diet and lifestyle because you can take all the supplements that are anti-inflammatory antioxidants and all these great things. But if you’re not changing your diet, it’s just going to feel about fire constantly. And you’re going to be bloated and the skin issues and especially weight plateau, like your cells are not responsive.

There’s no like cell metabolism working properly. Um, like I said, it leads to insulin resistance. So like one type leads to the other type leads to the other type and snowball effect. So everyone with PCO S has inflammation. I would, I would say to a certain degree, Yeah. To a certain degree, for sure. I mean, and like tying said,

like the more inflamed your cells become and then they become more resistant to insulin. And then that’s how, like she said, she mentioned yet it develops into insulin resistance. So that’s another, and then you have two types. So That’s why I’m like going gluten and dairy free. Cause I mean, gluten has an impact on insulin dairy, especially does,

but it has shown to be so inflammatory to so many people who have gluten sensitivity. So when you combine it, when you cut both out, it’s like, you’re really targeting like two types of PCO S and we’re good to go. We always recommend try to at least cut out gluten and dairy for a month to see how the effects and how you feel are because you usually need a month.

It’s not just like a week thing or like two days thing to really get the full effect because your body needs to detox itself and kind of go through that cycle of kind of getting it out of its system. Yeah. And it takes a minute to get used to being gluten and dairy free. So I might take even more than a month to like really see it.

Yeah. I, to learn how to pair foods correctly. Yeah. Because already like, unfortunately a lot of people don’t know, like, not even just with PCs, but like, like anybody in the world, a lot of people don’t know how to pair foods correctly sometimes, you know, Oh, I should have more carbs and I’m sorry, more protein than carbs.

And you know, some fiber here and you know, like all these different things make you think about King of pairing foods correctly. Um, oftentimes when we’re diagnosed, they say, you know, go on a low carb diet, but it really just depends on what type of PCOS you have because going on a low carb diet can be really bad if you have adrenal fatigue,

which is the next type of PCs we’re going to talk about. So if you have insulin resistance, of course, like slowly lowering your carb intake and trying to figure out like where the sweet spot is, where you’re seeing results and feeling good and not having like hypoglycemic attacks, you know? But then when you have adrenal fatigue, you, you can’t like just go on keto without having these horrible repercussions of misery.

Like we had an intermittent fasting episode the other day. And, um, for someone with adrenal fatigue who had responded to the sticker question in my Instagram story, she’s like, Oh my God, intermittent fasting almost died. Like it was terrible. This and that. And I’m like, yeah, you probably had adrenal fatigue. It is terrible if you have that because you’re in a constant state of stress.

So let’s explain a general fatigue before I keep talking. I also wanted to mention it right before we get into adrenal fatigue. We have a quiz that you can take that, you know, based on your answers, uh, it can tell you what type of piece you, as you may have. So out of these four types, you take the quiz,

you, you, based on your answers to quiz will tell you, Oh, you have, you may have this type of piece to us. And then you may know, like all now, you know where to exactly start from, you can confirm with your doctor to be sure. Uh, just, you know, just to know for sure, like we said,

there’s tests you can, but yeah, like it’s a great place to start. So we’ll put that in the description of the podcast. So you can take that quiz at the end of after you’re done listening. Of course it’s not a diagnosis, but it’s a fun quiz that can actually give you some insight of which direction to Exactly. All right. So as Tom mentioned,

adrenal fatigue is a third type of piece of us. Yeah. And while we’re in the midst of trying to lose weight, we kind of overdo it and that’s how it gets triggered. Or, you know, maybe not just from weight loss, it could be, um, something in your life that was really stressful that, you know, really affected you physically.

Um, it could be like any type of trauma can like trigger your adrenal glands, which are like these little Glens above your kidneys to pump stress, hormones, uncontrollably, and then fatigue. Um, and let me think, what else, like if you have inflammation that can be, um, your body can recognize that as stress in your body. So that can cause adrenal fatigue and overexercising over-exercising Oh my gosh.

I’ve had clients come in several who like are over-exercising. I mean, that’s usually the point when they come into my office, like overexercising not eating any carbs, not seeing any weight loss. And they’re like, what do I do? I need to dietician. And then they come in and I’m like, go to bed. I need to just stop.

You need to go. Fatigue can be caused from overworking out. I’ve noticed the personally myself, if I work out five, six days in a row, notice my body is not feeling the same. It’s overworking out as a big factor. I need like an hour extra sleep on days when we do, when I really push myself with our workouts, I seriously like need to sleep one whole hour more instead of eight hours,

nine hours. That’s crazy. But I am like, thank God. Like I have the luxury to do that. Cause I work from home. Um, but you know, if you feel like that’s you sleep an hour earlier or something like try to, you know, you have to be very, um, self aware when you have PCOS like that.

I’m glad you do that. Yeah. I’m glad you at least put in, like, you know, when you work out, okay, I need to maybe eat a little bit more of this or I need to sleep a little extra and it’s good to know that, or else you’re going to be wake up or the same way you’re going to be like,

why am I so tired? And then be like, yeah, not good the whole day. Right? Exactly. I mean, we’re so used to that mindset of like push, push, push what’s what did I say earlier in Nike’s? Um, just do it, just do it. No, don’t just do it like when you have PCOM, it’s not,

Yeah. I’ve always hated that sink to the laziest saying just do it. It’s such a lazy way of saying it to like, Just do it, do it enough and work out. What if you have adrenal fatigue? Yeah. What if it’s the Corona Jerry thing of that? Yeah. Well, you know what? Wait we have to, like,

what are the things you can do when you have a GL and fatigue? Rosebud tea helps with that. Oh yeah. That is like something that I drink every night to relax and I give some to see doc to make him relax. Yeah. I really like it. Cool. Tea has a good, nice flavor to it. Not no caffeine. So it’s perfect time.

Perfect tea for children at night. Stretching also is something that will help see. It’s really good at this Form. Rolling and doing stuff like, um, you know, stretching on the floor, like with some yoga poses, Um, getting a massage or going to acupuncture helps with this type of piece. S CBD is great. I love CBD Sera chases me around the house and gives me the strict tincture Tincture.

Tincture. Yeah. That’s the one that you bought under your tongue, but I CBD is great for stress. There’s like many studies already showing that CBD, lowers, cortisol, and other stress hormones. And it’s a great way to, uh, relax the body and reduce inflammation. So it actually helps with the inflammation type of piece, us too, Actually hilarious to watch.

See dad take it. He like puts your ridiculous time, 60 seconds A child, like you put open your mouth. Uh, and then you’re just like, expect me to drop it in and like, okay, you want me to like give you a star at the end. I do. What do you want? And, uh, but yeah,

it’s great. And uh, we love CBDs. Can you just give and take, okay. I do things for you. He chases me around busy supplements. Our favorite CBD company is actually called pure spectrum cbd.com. And I used to take them way before, like for a long time. And then we actually now partner with them. So if you like to buy CBD,

you can check out the link in our bio and you can get 10% off if you use the word, the sisterhood one word and yeah. Anything from there 10% off Become obsessed because ever since I’ve read about how it Laura’s inflammation, some studies show that it lowers insulin levels and helps with insulin resistance. And then the whole thing about lowering cortisol and like the fact that I felt that cortisol drop before I even read that there was a study about cortisone CBD convinced.

And I was like, I can’t, I have to have everything CBD now. Like every product, my moisturizer It’s true. You know, use a face cream. You were telling me the other day. It’s like one of your favorite ones though. Officially my favorite moisturizer. Yeah. Well, you know, it makes sense. Cause CBD reduces inflammation,

right. It’s one of the big things you put on your face. So if you, like, if you’re having any issues with breakouts or anything like that, it just going to like prevent that from happening or maybe, I don’t know, like it depends on the person for sure. But like, I’m sure it has some sort of help to that I’m prone to acne.

And so I have to do things to like keep it down. Okay. Diet change, of course. So that stops me from getting like crazy cystic acne. And then, um, I get laser facials to help with like texture and um, Oh, I mean, extractions to help with texture and then like laser facials to help with like redness and the scars and inflammation and stuff from like previous acne.

So I’m like constantly trying to like treat my acne. Um, and my skin is fine, but like if I see that a breakout is coming now that I use that CBD lotion, the next day, it’s totally gone. It’s like, it wasn’t going to happen. Nevermind. Like put on the lotion Effective. Yeah. So CBD is great. And just so you know,

you can go to any other like CBD brand too, like CBD in general is great. Not just the one that we recommend to reason we recommend, uh, the brand that we work with is they’re um, CBD is the pure full spectrum. And that’s the thing, like not all CBD is created equal. I’ve mentioned this before that some like a lot of CBD products,

they filter out a lot of the helpful compounds in the CBD. So, and because of that, you don’t get all the full benefits and uh, there’s other companies that do that as well. But like I know for sure that pure spectrum CBD is the one of the companies that has a full spectrum, uh, in their CBD products. So that’s why I love them personally.

Yeah. I’m glad you mentioned that. Yeah. Anyway, we really went off on CBD. Alright. I just feel like for adrenal fatigue, that’s great meditation with it. Yeah. Take your CBD meditate. You’re good. Okay. So next type of PCOS hypothyroidism. And so this happens when your thyroid gland produces too little thyroid hormones and depending on how the degree to which you have hypothyroidism,

you’ll probably need medication. And so that’s fine. Like if you need it, you need it. But before you get to that point, you might be able to do something and studies show that going gluten and dairy free can help and managing your blood sugar can help. So that leads me to say that perhaps the insulin resistance could lead to hypothyroidism. So it’s important to,

um, change your diet and lifestyle before it gets to that point. And of course, you know, if you need medication, you need medication. Thank God. There is some, because with hypothyroidism you can gain weight uncontrollably and um, your hair can fall out. And like all of these things, body aches and blood sugar issues and everything, um,

can occur because of it. So that concludes the four types of PCOS. And now I’m going to slide in the fifth type. Okay. And so the fifth type is a post pill PCOM. So this happens when a woman stops taking birth control and for like six to 12 months, you know, it’s a struggle to get your period regulated. And sometimes you gained weight and your symptoms are out of control.

Um, of course going gluten and dairy free, taking them. I stopped doing all these things before you get off birth control can help. But, um, what was I going to say? Oh yeah. Birth control triggers. Insulin resistance. So it makes insulin resistance even worse because you took birth control. So getting off of it, you’re kind of like in a state of PCOM,

not to mention being on birth control is being in a state of like fake S because you’re not ovulating and, um, that’s CCOs, right? You’re not obsoleting and your progesterone and everything. So can you actually get PCs just from just due to the birth? Yeah. You can take birth control, come off with it, not have your period and it’s PCRs.

Okay. In that case, can you cure PSUs if that’s what caused it? Yeah. It will take some time, but you can reverse it, the symptoms. And I’m not sure by the word. So when I say reverse, it’s not the same thing as cure. Yeah. That’s why I’m asking. Cause cure means that you no longer have it and you don’t have to do anything about it.

Right. It’s not longer in your body. I’m not sure about that. When we say reversing symptoms, we mean you’re managing your symptoms. You’re so well that they’re not there and you don’t have to even think about it because your day to day you’re doing your thing. Yeah, exactly. But so I guess with the pillow, maybe it’s a little different who knows it’s it’s like,

uh, maybe sisters, if you have gone through that, if your PCs was caused by the pill, let us know, like, were you able to reverse it? Are you cured of it? Or do you still have remnants of, you know, the different symptoms? Like, that’d be interesting to know. Yeah. So yeah, basically after taking it’s,

it’s hard to lose weight once you’re off birth control, um, because of the insulin resistance issue and you really have to target it and be patient and it takes a few months, um, over acetone really helps going gluten and dairy free, doing everything that we’re recommending as best as you can to get your hormones back on track can really help with supplementing.

We have a whole freakin episode on post-birth pill, you know, how to MPC was transitioning pros and cons different options. Yeah. And, uh, and if you feel like you have any other questions about any of the other types, like, I feel like hypothyroidism, we didn’t cover as long as it’s, you know, fatigue, but if you have any questions about any of,

yeah, we can. But if you have any questions about any of these types, feel free to DM us on Instagram too. Like we’re happy to always answer your questions or on the sisterhood. That’s where we have a lot of the sisters. We have a community where like, people are like messaging each other, sharing their meals, things like that.

So we always ask each other questions when we post the podcast there too. So keeping in mind that managing PCLs and all these different types is a lifestyle thing and it takes, um, what’s the word? Like, it takes a lot of resilience and persistence consistency. Like I personally have insulin resistance. I’ve had adrenal fatigue and inflammation. And so now I spend like my daily routine in life constantly managing it because I know it’ll come back.

Yeah. So like, for example, you know, I’ve said like I take opacity tol you know, I don’t take it like consistently all the time, but I take it, you know, and then sometimes I’ll eat like something sugary. Right. And, and that could throw me off if I’m like constantly eating, like cookies and stuff like that.

But then I’m human because, you know, before my period, if I feel like it, you know, I feel a little bit, You also deserve it. You don’t need to, You don’t have to be perfect. Is what I’m saying. Just because I’m over here trying to like lead by example doesn’t mean I’m perfectly managing everything all the time.

Like I have breakouts, so then I do this and that for it. So of course, I’m just here to be like a motivation and help you sisters out in learning that you can gain control of your PCOS. And that’s what this podcast is all about. Yes, totally. I love that. That was great. Great pep talk, babe. As a reminder,

you can take a quiz and a description to find your type of PCRs, or it can help you find your type of PCO is by you explaining your symptoms. And, uh, you can confirm that with the doctor as well. We, we always say consult your doctor just to know, make sure you know your type and you can go from there to,

you know, make sure you’re starting from the right steps. Yeah. So we did a DM and sorry, I say DM, I mean like sticker in Instagram stories. So if you ever see me post a sticker and ask a question it’s for podcasting. So should we get into that? Okay. The question is, um, let’s see, what do you do to treat your S type?

I asked other sisters and they said, let’s see. Hm, um, gluten and dairy free take vitamin D and magnesium, slow exercise and reduce stress. Go girl. Boom, boom, bam. Yeah. Sounds like she’s really treating inflammation. And adrenals Rosie says avoid white refined sugar and carbs. So good on the white refined sugars carbs. You don’t have to limit it so much,

but yeah, maybe if you found a good level that works just for you, then that’s good. Gluten free and dairy free and meditation. Perfect. Helping the body and the brain, Um, walking in yoga, love it. Yoga meditation, low-impact workout, diet, gluten and dairy free vitamin B and acetone magnesium. He asked you how to find out the type of,

Follow for follow. Uh, someone said trying to reduce stress. That’s great. That’s good. Meditation is always one of the best ways to do that Before it was birth control, but now working on gluten and dairy free and Odessa tall, you go girl. Um, yeah, everyone keeps saying, you know, doing slow strength exercises. No more hit for me.

I see one that says, I just want to read it. It says nothing waiting to hit rock bottom. So I hope that, um, you’re listening and you’ve, you’re trying to take some steps to go forward because you know, I was trying to wait to hit rock bottom can be like this really bad, um, processing your journey. And like,

it can just make you feel worse over time. There’s no pressure to just like, Oh, can you just start doing something? There’s of course, like when you’re ready, but don’t try not to get stuck in that, you know, like mental thought of all, like, I’m just gonna wait until something happens or else it can even be harder to come back from it.

Like you can like push your body to the point where like, Oh, now it’s like 10 times harder than it could have been. If I tried six months ago or even two months ago, like, you know, it’s like, uh, try to treat like today’s the first day of, uh, you know, what you want to do so I can give it that way.

So try not to take Metformin NovaSeq taught together because they can really lower your blood sugar, but also, uh, yeah. I mean, consult your doctor to be sure about taking those two together.

Yeah. I just discovered my type and I’m going to eliminate dairy and gluten foods. You go girl. Okay. All right. I hope that was motivating. So these are what your sisters are doing out here in these streets. Okay. Alrighty, let’s go. Yeah. My favorite part, I chose two. This time two wins. We got to speak.

And this is we’re reading messages from sisters who have been doing great with their PCP, with managing their symptoms and losing weight with no problems, John doing that thing. So I’ll read the first one, a win number one. That’s the name here? Time. You got to include the name. Come on now. Uh, thank you. I am so happy.

Okay. I’m going to say sister. I’m just going to get to her says this sister’s name is, uh, uh, don’t say I have to think of a name. Beyonce. No, uh, Liliana. I dunno why Lou. Okay. This is Liliana saying, thank you. Great. Thank you. I am so happy. The first two months were difficult,

but once I got the hang of things and discovered what I can and cannot eat, it’s been so easy. I actually thought I had IBS before I went gluten and dairy free. And now I have no GI issues at all. I’ll never go back. I was working out twice as hard and as much as I do now, and I feel so much more fit now I was gaining weight exponentially.

And I didn’t understand why until I found your page and everything clicked. Nice. Awesome. It’s like, it’s really about sometimes finding the right source of information too, to know off. Great. I found this now I can really like apply things to get better before then. It’s like, you have to like kind of like scavenge the internet to find tips here and there and there,

you know, it’s, it’s hard first find the right source. So The reason why I chose that win was because she said she thought she had IBS before. And the thing is when you have a lot of inflammation, you are bloated and your digestion is off. And so going gluten and dairy free can really help. And so for her, like she thought it was IBS and then it was just gluten and dairy center.

I can’t wait to see what happens in a few more months. Yeah. There you go. Yeah. Replacing some of that high sugar placing gluten dairy free.

I mean, it just, That’s incredible that you can actually treat that, which just goes to show the inflammation leads to your body to be in a state of stress as well. Yeah, one month. And she said she lost 10 pounds and got her period back after not having it for five months. That’s great. I’m so happy for you. I’m so happy for you.
