I am into week 5 of my diet no caffine, dairy, wheat, sugar or red meat. So far the results have been extremely pleasing. I am feeling loads better, the muscle pain has subsided to only feeling stiff and my energy levels are improving each week. My excema has completely cleared up. I love cooking and eating so it has been important for me to find food that I still enjoy otherwise I wouldnt stick to it! The savory side had been easy but I do like my treats! I found one site on the net really good all her recipes I have tried so far I have have worked really well, in addition I have lost 5 pounds of the 10 I have put on since my hysterectomy and can get back into my some of my clothes! I have been on the lowest HRT patch now for 2 weeks, so far I have only had small twinges from the endo a couple of times which I can cope with, I am just hoping it stays at this level as I am definatly feeling the benefits from the estridol. I have had a whole week of sleeping through most of the night ( usually would have about 6 night sweats each night) and I have not had any nightmares the last week. The arthritis is not too good but then it has gone very damp and cold here in Wales, I am hoping the things I am taking for this will help in due course. On a side note (dont think this has anything to do with diet) my right eye has stated growing eyelashes again, frustratingly I have loads of hairs growing below the eyebrow line, ugh not nuch use there! So after feeling so depressed over how I felt I feel relieved that I may be able to control some of my problems, I just hope things continue to improve.
