    Low blood pressure

    Thanks for the simple recipe, which could easily be made even at a restaurant with lemon and salt.

    Low blood pressure

    I have low blood pressure and it got lower when I started W30. When my blood pressure drops, my heart rate goes very high. The only electrolyte supplement that I found that is compliant is elete. I got it on Amazon. I got the liquid drops. My cardiologist suggested it. He also said to up my salt. I got some very good sea salt on amazon as well. Also a lot of bone broth based soups. I am starting my 6th week and my heart is doing much better. I do use more salt and use Natural Calm at night.

    Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue

    I have had that poisoned feeling many times, so totally understand. Glad to hear that things are improving for you Scout. I had to restart my AIP today, as I had some peppers and 2 pecans yesterday. I felt dreadful today, which helps me get much more enthusiastic about the AIP.

    Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue

    HI ScoutFinch. Welcome! I am on day 26 of W30. I have not been doing AIP, but am considering it for the next 30 days. I can't say that all my pain has disappeared. In fact, last night I felt worse than I have felt in quite a while. I woke up at 4 am feeling utterly wretched. However, overall, I have had way more better days than worse days. I have noticed quite a few improvements (sleep, stamina, alertness, skin, others I can't think of right now). I am now convinced that inflammation and food are connected. I am sure I am less inflamed right now as a result of 26 days of clean eating. I am going to try the AIP because I really would like to know if eggs, nuts, seeds, nightshades, etc. are a true problem. I am very interested in your excercise. I have been able to walk 3-4 times a week for the first time in years in the last few weeks without it crashing me for days or weeks. That is huge progress for me. The only yoga I have been able to manage for years has been in a chair. I used to run and swim without any trouble so physical ability has been one of the worst things to lose. I am grateful to be able to walk. I am considering adding strength training one day a week. I want to keep it very simple, and I am excited to hear about your results.
  5. I echo everything Kirsteen said. What a wonderful uncle you are! My very best wishes for you all.

    Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue

    I am on Day 13 of W30 and am definitely seeing some health benefits (I have fibro, post viral syndrome, and some other goodies ) but pain is still here. What is the AI protocol? I can't seem to find it. I have gone walking for two days in a row and haven't had terrible consequences, which is pretty unheard of. Just realized it actually.
