Life right now is super duper crazy….WOW, but it’s all very good stuff, just intense. So it’s no wonder that the stress of moving, having a yard sale, leaving behind the place we’ve called home for the last 3 years and the state we’ve been in for the last 8 could throw my whole system out of whack, but WOW did it ever!!! Granted all the crap food I let back into my diet didn’t help, but couple that with the stress that I’m under I created the perfect storm within my body. So about 3 days ago, I was in so much pain (Neuropathy pain in my feet, legs, arms, face, back, I could barely walk let alone workout in the gym. I remember being on the treadmill thinking how weak I felt and that I just couldn’t bare to live like that. So I did a massive overhaul of my diet and added some natural supplements like cinnamon, turmeric, ALA and GLA in an effort to bypass taking Neurontin-a commonly prescribed med. For neuropathy.
I’m happy to report after overhauling my diet, adding these supplements and doing acupuncture in my feet, I feel WONDERFUL!!!!!!
Not sure which of the things I added is working or if it’s a combo of all of it, but I can tell you I won’t be stopping any of it anytime soon!! I don’t know how people live in chronic pain constantly?

Well I must get out to the yard sale now…..enjoy your day!!
