Gut Repair Week 6

Here we are at the end of Week 6! This means I am HALFWAY done with the 3-Month Repairvite Protocol.

It’s my understanding, that at the end of the three months, I will embark on a month-long Liver Cleanse as well (using the ClearVite from Apex Energetics).

Food

The food thing is getting easier. Mostly because it is familiar. I just don’t eat eggs, or nuts, or tomatoes anymore. It’s my truth. Once you adopt a change as your new “truth”, it’s no longer a huge issue. It’s the same for anyone embarking on a Gluten-Free lifestyle, or Paleo lifestyle (note: not a diet). About two months into it, the shift starts to feel normal. You stop gazing longingly at the basket of bread at the restaurant. You no longer notice the “pasta” section on the menu. You breeze right by the cereal aisle at the grocery store. It’s the new normal.

Side note: It never feels normal to not join in when friends and family are drinking wine or getting coffee. I’ve found that these rituals are much more of a social connector than a dietary craving.

Supplements

Pills Pills Pills. I’m terrible at remembering to take the GI Synergy. Mostly because I don’t want to take it the same time I take the probiotic. And that means that I have to remember to take pills 5x a day. In addition to my vitamin D liquid shots and the repairvite powder drink. It’s a lot to remember, especially if you’re busy or gone for the day.

Chiropractic

I have a rogue rib that’s been giving me trouble. The doc attributes this to the fact that as he tries to realign my spine, there will be resistance. In other words, nobody likes change… even your spine. Other than that all is well in this area. I’ve been cleared to lift weights again! Yippee! So I hopped back on it and did a couple of killer workouts this week
