November will be Gluten Free

I am not one to come up with catchy blogpost names.  So yes, gluten free November.

Here is the update on my thyroid showdown:

I have been putting EndoFlex on my neck every day, sometimes twice a day. Endoflex is a natural essential oil, you squeeze the ingredients enough and this oil substance appears then you bottle it up.  It said to help support the endocrine system

The endocrine system, in short, makes a series of hormones that keeps your innards balanced and working together, like a team! a community!  Gooooooooooooo Endocrine!  Hoo-rah!  However, if Mr. Thyroid decides he doesn't want to do his part, the other members of Team Endocrine have to step it up a notch thus wrecking ball havoc on your body.  You can't take out the rotors on a car and think you're going to be driving to the city.  Same thing with the endocrine.  Also, while it's nice and all to take a supplement to help out Mr. Thyroid, I can't help but think it'd be wiser to sit him down by a relaxing fireplace with a cup and tea and go over his reasons for hiatus.  Why are you on strike?  Do you not realize how important you are?  My hair is jumping ship because they miss you.  My metabolism sits and cries when you are gone.  I'm cold and lonely, come back Mr. Thyroid, we miss you.


I read on some blog somewhere that some chick cut out gluten and is all happy happy happy now.  I figure, why not?  Apparently gluten isn't every one's best friend and some, maybe me?, really don't digest it the way they should therefore it wages war on the inside and people don't even realize it.  On one hand, I'm not allergic to anything.  On the other hand, maybe I am and just don't realize it. 

One month, I can do that.  Anyone can do anything, for a short amount of time.  I can give birth, for one day (Lord willing, about an hour).  Every day?  Calm down, I said ONE day.  Ethan can do his two pages of math, four? No, two.  Big things in short time spans don't overload peoples heads.  Break it down and it just seems like it can be conquered.  That said, one month?  Sure, I'll give a dog a bone and do it for one month.

Gluten free plus endoflex plus good ol' Synthroid (which the reviews are looking  a bit fifty fifty on whether it works well or not but it appears to be the go-to drug of choice as far as hypothyroidism goes) should- in theory- make my body jump for joy.

Day one.  Cereal for the kids, eggs for me.  I see many in my future since they are quick, nutritious, cheap, and easy.
