How did you go, Stacy? I totally forgot on the 3rd, but I did think of you right before and right after! Does that count?:LOL
Actually, I have been eating a lot of soy products, as I found out about the Japanese and how they generally have easy menopause and periods because of their high estrogen diets. I eat tofu, soy sauce as sauce for everything, tempeh, you name it. I especially like soybeans boiled in the pod with heaps of salt and then eating them out of the pod. I am also drinking more water. I haven't quit coffee. Ooops. But another month went past, and no pain, and to add to that, only 3 days long! Still clotty, but WOW! So that is two pain free months in a row. I am also meditating and bringing in the light into my crown chakra a lot, at least once a day - for what that's worth. My husband does hands on healing for my headaches, and I told him to do them on my belly - so maybe they are helping, too. A friend also told me she shrunk an ovarian cyst by seeing "the cyst as cheese, and sending mice in to eat the cheese" Ok, so some of these therapies are off the wall :LOL. But her doctor was quite impressed (and of course attributed it to "one of those spontaneous healings", not to her hard visualisation efforts).
So, yeah, a bit of wishful thinking, a bit of estrogen, lotsa light! I could be a monkey's uncle next month, so I won't bring out the band just yet, but I am celebrating this Christmas, lemme tell ya! I will find the link that does a questionairre about whether you could be low or high estrogen, or/and low/high progesterone. If you are high estrogen, a soy diet would make it worse, I would imagine.
Hunger is political. Wherever there is widespread hunger, it is because people with guns are preventing other people from bringing in food.
