There's a line from the infamous TV show, "The Office," where Darryl tells Michael to "make it happen, capt'n." That line has never died in our relationship/family/house and we still say it years later. And finally I'm making something happen!
So a while back I talked about needing to make some changes to my diet, and I had been venting to friends about how I should start this and I want to but I'm going on a vacation, yada yada yada and I'm scared of not having sugar yada yada yada and was really, feeling quite sorry for myself. Then a friend tweeted that she started a 30-day detox with her holistic doctors and I felt some hope returning. She inspired me to get my booty in gear. So, on Tuesday, I have my first appointment with an integrative care doctor's office and I'll meet with a PA to discuss my history and plan a course of action. I'm really looking forward to finding some guidance through my first detox* ever and getting some answers to questions I've had.
In addition to that, what feels like providential timing...I signed up for a "Surf & Turf" e-course about preparing and handling nourishing foods--probably more like eating foods the way they were meant to be consumed and in the most healthful way. I'm sure it will be a MASSIVE paradigm shift but I'm ready to start learning and doing! Or, as Darryl said, "Mak[ing] it happen."
*Why am I doing a detox?
I've been on certain medications for a very long time that have probably, almost certainly, done unpleasant things to various systems in my body, and I'm now starting to feel and see more unfavorable results. It's time to assess the situation for what it is, move on, and hopefully eradicate "the need" for these medications and live in a more holistic manner. At least, 'tis my goal. Wish me luck.
