I went to my primary care physician this morning and it was so cool. This is a man I saw probably on average 6 times a month for over a year trying to get all the health issues straightened out.
Since I've started the naturopathic route I've only been there a few times and have seen the Nurse Practioner and not the actual doc.
He walked into the exam room and did a double take. "Good God girl! What happened to you? You look great!"
It was wonderful! During the time I saw him I was often pale, shaking with pain, walking hunched over, etc. So I told him about the naturopathic route I've been taking on the process of finding wellness and he said several times "I just can't get over this."
I told him my hair was growing back, my fingernails were growing, he asked about the side pain and I told him it was gone! Finally gone after 35 years! He asked whether I was still going to the pain specialist and I said no. He went down all the list of meds I had been on and I kept saying no, no, no....not taking those anymore.
His reaction just reinforced for me again how far I have come on this journey of being a whole person again!
He is getting a referral for me to a food allergy specialist cuz I told him I'm hoping to narrow down my food allergies cuz gluten/dairy/sugar-free is pretty hard to follow.
It was a cool reaction and it made me very happy.
