27 Nov Liz Zhang, sinus, allergy, immune
I went to see Susie with some non-critical but pestering ailments that I had picked up over the last couple years. I had bad sinuses and was always blowing my nose. It felt like I was going through a box of tissues per day. I also lacked energy and was always catching colds.
I had always been a careful eater, trying to make healthy choices when I could, but Susie introduced me to the concept of food intolerances, explaining the idea of delayed internalised reactions to foods. Who knew that a runny nose could be related to an intolerance to certain foods? I had never suffered from any food allergies but Susie recommended I get tested for food intolerances as well as mineral deficiencies and turns out I had a number of food intolerances (Soy, Eggs, Pineapples, just to name a few!) as well as high levels of mercury in my system.
Susie suggested I cut out the highly intolerant foods from my diet for a few months at least and also prescribed a course of vitamins/minerals in order to help detox my body. Since our visit, I have noticed an improvement to my sinuses and am feeling more energetic in general. Susie had lots of good advice/suggestions for lifestyle/diet changes.
I love the recipes she printed out and definitely ask her about the seed jar! It was one of my favourite Susie ideas.
