He had me taking digestive enzymes, but I wouldn't take the other supplements he suggested/tried to sell me because I was trying to figure out DS's allergies at that point, and I didn't want to confuse the picture even more.
Are you suggesting that there are homeopathic pancreatic supports? Or should I be trying something else?
And DS protein desire & intake is high, as I mentioned above. [Although the desire for protein seems to run in DH's family. DH's brother eats only protein (meat & beans, and rice; he is over 60, cholesterol is fine, even though he smokes & drinks). DH does best on lots of protein.]
I can't say I actually CRAVE protein. I tend to find myself much more attracted to veggies and fruits. But I think that is mostly a matter of having grown up with a lot of veggies and a little meat. This way of eating, with so much meat, is still weird to me.
So it isn't that I WANT the meat, but that I am healthier when I eat it.
The naturopath put me on Pancreatrophin (I think that's how it is spelled) based on the fact that when he placed it into my energy field my body was happy, and without it my body wasn't.
After maybe 2 months of that, my body was perfectly happy without anything. And I felt great. And baby-lust kicked in, which I took as a good sign. Then when I got pregnant, he gave me some supplements just as extra. And then a few weeks into pregnancy, I started feeling the blood sugar issues a bit again, and my body wanted the Pancreatrophin again (in much smaller amounts).
I had to leave the naturopath when I moved. But he gave me a recommendation for another one near here who went to school with him and uses the same method. She is also a chiro, so that kills 2 birds with one stone. But I haven't been to see her yet. At this point I am just plodding along with the same dosage because when I skip it (which I've done for over a week at a time) I feel worse, and when I take it I start to feel better again.
