Daily Log: Elimination Diet- Day 4- 07/13/17

Hello everyone! Well, 4 days into my 21 day elimination diet, and things are going well. I’m still waking up with headaches and congestion, but the intensity is way down. At the beginning of the week, they were about an 8 on a pain scale of 1 to 10. Today, it was about a 4 or 5. I need to remind myself that things won’t go away overnight. It just might take the full 3 weeks…I hope not, but it’s possible. On the plus side, My head feels clearer and I have more energy than I’ve had in a long time, and it gets better every day.


Onto the log:

About Tamara Hoerner (1303 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

I'd love to know what you think!
