Banana, Apple & Mango smoothie 🥭🍌🍎 My kids love this smoothie, and often have it as part of their breakfast. Nothing gives me more satisfaction, knowing they too are consuming the healing benefits and goodness of fruits each day and they are both thriving in every way. This also a great way to fill up and cool down in the summer months, although we drink it all year round here on the Sunshine Coast. 😎

Bananas are one of the most nutritional and healing fruits readily available today. They are 76% water and are packed with vitamins such as vitamins C and B6 and minerals such as potassium, copper, and manganese. This high water/nutrient ratio makes them a great electrolyte food.

Mangos can help to alkalinize the whole body by helping to flush out toxic acids and rebuild the alkali reserves in the body. Mangos are packed with enzymes and are a prebiotic food, meaning they contain compounds that stimulate and feed the good bacteria in the intestines which greatly aids in digestion and assimilation. 
Recipe

2 frozen Bananas
1 unfrozen banana
1 Mango
1 cup filtered water
2 apples juiced

Throw all the ingredients in a blender until a smooth consistency is achieved and drink! 🥤🍌🍎🥭 #smoothies

If T is pancreas-deficient, then I'm math-deficient 🙄⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's days like today when I'm grateful I'm not a Live-abetic. Why? CARB COUNTING MAKES MY BRAIN HURT! 🤯I can calculate 50% off that fabulous flirty dress in a heart beat, but making me divide invisible numbers in my head is a one-way ticket to a (not so) literal break down 🙅‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm a self-confessed foodie with a hearty appetite for carbs and an endless list of places to eat out, and it never ceases to amaze me how T can guess-timate carb portions in any old meal sitting in front of us. Take today, eating anything and everything at @theEkka 🤤⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But it's not always a flawless plan. In fact, if over- or under-dosed, we could end up with a low or a high on our hands! Luckily, my Mr T puts his maths skills to excellent use on the daily 👌⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is Thai chilli basil chicken stirfry without sugar. One of the few restaurant meals I can eat without consequence. The owner cringes and dreads to think of how poorly her food would taste without sugar. I tell her it’s delightful. She gives me lemon. I enjoy every bite. 
Meanwhile, tasting my partner’s green curry, I can get through barely a quarter teaspoon without wanting to pass out. It’s an explosion of sweetness such that a savoury dish tastes more like confectionery. 
I just don’t know why restaurants feel the need to drug us so heavily with sugar and God knows what else! It’s their prerogative of course and probably a cheaper way to make a dish more tasty. 
But the tide is changing towards a more whole food style-menu. People generally don’t want unnecessary baddies in their food.

Found this great way of describing pain levels 😂 What pain level are you?
⁠A Sunday well spent brings a week of content 🌀 Devouring this fluffy stack of protein pancakes while thinking about what to eat for lunch, anyone else do this?! 😂⁠⠀
⁠⠀
RECIPE...⁣⁠⠀
⁣⁠⠀
1/2 cup oats + 1 scoop protein powder @missfitsnutrition + 1/2 tsp baking powder + 1 tsp cinnamon + pinch of salt + 1/3 cup almond milk @plenishdrinks + 1 egg (whisked) + 2 tbsp yoghurt @nushfoods + oil for cooking⁠⠀
⁣⁠⠀
1. Mix dry ingredients in one bowl and wet ingredients in a separate bowl (stir well). ⁣⁠⠀
2. Combine the wet and dry ingredients together and mix until a smooth batter is formed.⁣⁠⠀
2. Heat oil in a frying pan and add 2 tbsp of batter. After 2 mins, flip and cook on the other side for 1-2 mins. Repeat with the rest of the batter.⁣⁠⠀
3. Add toppings - I went for @livias almond butter Nugglets, strawberry chia jam @londonbruncher, activated seeds @eatboundless and a drizzle of dark chocolate sauce !⁣⁠⠀

We all get caught up in doing multiple things at the same time, in the meanwhile thinking about what happened earlier, or about what is to come later on...
What about, when life is actually happening? Living in the current moment is precious. The minute your mind wanders off, that moment is gone, and you might have missed something beautiful or special...

Eosinophils are a type of disease-fighting white blood cell. They play 2 roles in your immune system; destroying foreign substances, and regulating inflammation. These are often associated with adrenal, auto immune and skin disorders. .
.
When levels are around 0.2 and above this most commonly indicates a parasite infection! Select parasites that come from eosinophilia are; Helminthic Infections: Nematodes (hookworm, ascariasis + more), Filariases and Flukes. Protozoan Infections (dientamoeba fragilis, sarcocystis and isospora belli). .
.
In TCM parasite infection and inflammation is called ‘Gu Syndrome’. Lyme disease also comes under this umbrella. Chinese herbal medicine is VERY effective at treating this and works on both expelling the parasites and strengthening the immune system so the body can keep them under control! Remember we all have these critters and the point is to keep them under control not eradicate them as that is near impossible! Acupuncture and regular sauna use supports the detox pathways to ensure they stay open helping to clear the evil little suckers. .
.
As TCM pracs we are trained to interpret blood tests so please bring these in when you come to see us. Often the standard ranges given are FAR too wide and we are able to read between the lines, therefore giving a more effective treatment plan and thus happier patient!

My T1D footprint 👣💉
⠀⠀
6,800 days living with T1D
⠀⠀
3,876 hours sleep lost (It’s definitely way more hours than that) ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
39,340 finger pricks ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
47,600 insulin needle injections ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
About 2ish months worth of injections in this picture. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
Chronic illness is time consuming ⏰. How many hours of your day does it take to mange your illness? I don’t think there is ever three hours in a day that go by where I haven’t thought about my T1D. Chronic illness will present challenges again and again and again and it takes a huge chuck of time to manage these obstacles. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Chronic illness is difficult but asking for help is even harder for a lot of women. You’re not weak. It takes far more courage to ask for help than it does to give it. It’s not reasonable to do it ALL on your own in 24 hours. I used to try to do it all and it only caused me a huge headache, fatigue and eventual burn-out. ⠀⠀
There ain’t NO shame in asking for help. If someone can help, they will. If they can’t, they won’t. Just ask. Don’t feel like you’re a burden. YOU’RE NOT.

Another old photo (2 years ago) that I never shared. 
Since my shoulder spasm I've had to modify my practice to accommodate for the fact I couldn't put any weight on it at all, that means no inversions, no arm balances, no down dog, no plank or chaturanga etc. It's also generally more difficult with the arthritis in winter.

On the plus side I've been on a new biologic injection for the past 5 weeks and having a weekly shot has been helping me to not go backwards every fortnight like it was when I was on fortnightly injections. No more yo-yoing of pain levels, I'm staying at pretty low levels of pain and I'm finding that I'm not in as much pain as I used to be after teaching on my feet all afternoon.

I've also had ongoing physio sessions and special exercises for my shoulder and it is gaining strength back now so I'm able to put weight on it again but I'm still being very careful because I know it needs more time to come good completely.

Anyway, my yoga practice is on its way back normal soonish and I'm excited for the burst of improvement I get with the spring warmth too!

I’m happy. My thyroid levels are back within normal range. My depression is subsiding, my anxiety is nearly gone, my cystic since is gone. Believe it or not, I have no foundation on in this picture and my skin is CLEARRR 👏🏻 it’s a miracle lol my period finally showed up, I feel positive and I’m excited about life again. I’m finally happy and it feels so good. I fell off the celery juice wagon last month and my health went downhill, fast and drastically. I’ve since been consistent with my juicing and after only 10 days, I finally feel like I’m back to myself. Thank you, celery juice and @medicalmedium for your words of wisdom. You’ve truly saved my life. .

I’m happy. My thyroid levels are back within normal range. My depression is subsiding, my anxiety is nearly gone, my cystic since is gone. Believe it or not, I have no foundation on in this picture and my skin is CLEARRR 👏🏻 it’s a miracle lol my period finally showed up, I feel positive and I’m excited about life again. I’m finally happy and it feels so good. I fell off the celery juice wagon last month and my health went downhill, fast and drastically. I’ve since been consistent with my juicing and after only 10 days, I finally feel like I’m back to myself. Thank you, celery juice and @medicalmedium for your words of wisdom. You’ve truly saved my life. .

Road trips require a little more effort ... I use the term road trip loosely as we were only in the car 4 hours but hey that’s enough to get hungry! Plus I don’t like expecting other people to have food I can eat. So, spend a few extra minutes and pack your own food! There are definitely no wins for you waiting in the fast food lane! When the kids were starving and we stopped for their lunch at subway and Wendy’s (everyone agreeing is too much to ask for 😉) then I opened up my cooler and served my hubby and I lunch. We had chicken salad made w paleo mayo and grapes and a side of raspberries. YUM. I packed extra fruit, my favorite protein bars, some dried mangoes and some blue corn tortilla chips which are my splurge. My kids laugh that I consider organic blue chips a splurge but they feel like it! Oh and don’t forget your water... I’m not a soda drinker anyway but I’m guessing if you are road trips are a major temptation for soda at the gas station. So there ya go. No excuses to eat crap food. Spend the time and plan ahead! Your body will love you and my gosh you’re worth it! PS yes it pains me that we feed fast food to the children. That’s a post for another day! #glutenfree #dairyfree #lupus #autoimmunedisease #autoimmune

Trying my hand at pickles 😉
...
I used the fermented vegetable by Kristin and Christopher Shockey 👌🏼
...
I may have gone off the rails so we’ll see how this turns out.
...
Finally got to use the pickling spices from @happygirlkitchen and peppers 🌶 from @gmeadows.10 ...
Hoping for good results! 🙏🏼😆

Hi I miss my Instagram  family, I had a tuff week and thought I would up date you. *My son came down with a virus= severe headache, muscle ache nausea Thankfully  his only lasted 1 1/2 day
*Me same symptoms except fever 102.3 × 3 1/2 day then my muscle aches were back to my normal shower I was still nauseous and light headed. Friday I go to general Dr. Because I had bladder spasm and panic(kidney transplant) and still lightheaded *Results: dehydration and Acute Kidney attack 
My kidney function was affected . I have a kidney transplant so I have been in the hospital. Vital checks every 4 hours in between that IV changes and hospital  noise I thought this would be a good time to update.

Some days I feel like the bones in my hand have been crushed with a hammer or I have bruises all over my body...I look down and nothing. I feel that as bad as it hurts, there should be something visible to explain it. If I'm hard on myself and feeling dramatic, I can understand why others wouldn't understand. 😢 I am pretty good at hiding the pain and smiling through it. 😬

Do you relate?

Tonight is HORRIBLE bone pain deep in my hips & knees. 
Difficulty swallowing too.

I also have a weird pain in my right ankle and left hip that almost feels like when you start to slide a joint out of place or almost sprain something

I about can't handle the pain anymore tonight.
I hurt all over my body.

Plus skin is hot,red and burning and a horrible headache 
So many crummy symptoms all together and I'm worn out tonight.

Autoimmune Awareness 002:

I desperately wanted to hike today. I miss these mountains terribly. I’m certain they miss me too. But I made a vow to honor my body in this season.

Chronic disease takes this wind right out of your sails sometimes. I happen to have no wind at the moment. If I can honor that, I will get my wind back when the time is right.

Date night @carbonepizza for their summer Paleo menu by chef @chefpeteevans! We were initially disappointed to find out that the restaurant had just sold out of the paleo crust for the pork belly pizza. However, our server (Blaine) and manager (Jocelyn) went out of their way to accommodate us, answer our questions, and make sure the cooking surface was clean to minimize cross contamination. They apologized for it taking longer but we appreciated their attention to detail and caution they took to make sure it was ok. Our meatzza was delicious (#aipreintro tomatoes, hemp, egg) and we enjoyed our date night out. I would highly recommend the St. Anne’s #carbonepizza location as their service is top notch! #aip #paleo #autoimmune #chronicillness #autoimmuneprotocol #eatingoutpaleo #paleopizza #meatcrust  #paleolifestyle #aiplife #autoimmunedisease #ms #mslife #msdiet #multiplesclerosis #mswarrior #glutenfree #dairyfree #eatwell

I can't wait to get my old acct back 😭
Chronic illness is hard. Life is hard. And when you’re in flare it’s all 1000 times harder. I can smile through my days, but once I get home you can tell I really don’t feel good. This day, my right side of my face started to swell, and had that had a great deal of pain with it. I recently started methotrexate Injections, and so far I’m hating the day after side effects but if it helps, it will be so worth it!🥴🤢 #autoimmunedisease #methotrexate #chronicpainawareness #chronicallyill #chronicillness #chronicfatiguesyndrome #cfs #rheumatoidarthritis #rheumatoidarthritiswarrior #hidradenitissuppurativa #autoimmune #autoimmuneillness

It was an 80’s takeover at Deer Run yesterday for the 2nd annual “Kendall’s Drivers for Hope” golf tournament. The weather was perfect, the people were rad it was so good that in 80’s terms, it was baaaaad!
•
We are tremendously grateful to all golfers, volunteers and sponsors who came out to support children facing chronic illness.
•
Because of your generous gifts, together, we have raised $67,000 for children facing chronic illness. These funds will help local Minnesota children in need of functional medicine testing and treatment.
•
Couldn’t make the event? We are leaving the event donation page open a few more days, there’s still time to DONATE (link in bio) Your gift means hope, health and healing to a child with chronic illness and has a *direct impact* on the health of a child through our medical grant program.

Photos: 1) Best Dressed Team dubbed “The Richards” celebrating a fantastic putt 2) The Quinn Family and Friends complete with custom “Ryder” T’s- 2019 Ambassador Family and family of Ryder, recent grant recipient 3) Kelly, Kyle and Event superstar Kendall

Exactly one month since this picture was taken and I got engaged in a tiny little island in Thailand. .
Initially, the whole wedding thing was just overwhelming. I wanted to get the plan done ASAP!! And then it came my MS relapse and I realized I needed to calm down and relax. I’m not blaming the engagement for my relapse, I do believe it was more the food I ate during the trip than my anxiety but definitely the stress and anxiety did not help.
.
Anyway, thankfully, now I know my body and I know what it needs to heal... so I managed to understand what was happening very soon and went back to my routine and now I’m already feeling so much better. Just some daily headaches left but I can deal with it.
.
But what I’m here to say is how we sometimes get stressed even with amazing things such a wedding, a proof of love and commitment. We cannot let things stress us! Specially not good things such as an engagement. .
The whole reason why I was so stressed is cause I’ll have to plan a long-distance wedding as we plan to get married in Belgium (where my fiancé is from) while I live in the UK but I’m currently working in Asia 😂 yeah, it’s not gonna be easy! And most things are way beyond my control as that’s not my country and I cannot understand the language hehehehe But I decided I’ll let things go! If the party is amazing, as I’m sure it will be, it’s a bonus. The important thing is to have my loved ones, most still live in Brazil, with me there, in Belgium, and that’s my only real concern. And my family has already confirm their attendance so no need for me to worry, just enjoy the moment. .
Let it be. Don’t stress over things you cannot even control. Specially, don’t stress into details or things that should be making you happy!!! Enjoy more life.

STOP THE STIGMA! Mental health can look different for everyone. Just because someone’s smiling on the outside their brain could be battling intense amounts of torture and same with their insides (diseases etc) 
A little update from me is I’ve probably been the worst I’ve been since I can remember mentally. Physically I’m ‘ok’ zoladex has been amazing for me and I don’t want to ever come off :( otherwise everything seems to be going so down hill in my life at the moment.. I decided this was very necessary. On the left I’m bare faced and have been crying every day for months straight and things are only getting worse and I’m trying to stay alive at this point and on the right is me with makeup pulling a good old fake smile which is daily for me as soon as I leave the house. Don’t let this trick you.

Beets are one of my go to foods when I increase my workouts and training. Beets increase nitric oxide in the body allowing for better endurance, increase in muscle and better circulation. They also have the benefit of helping liver detox and increasing antioxidants.

Hang⁣
on to your morning coffee, because you’re not going to BELIEVE what Fiona said⁣
about what it is like to use the FREE Diagnosed Freedom Exercise! She  said, “After a minor heart attack, I⁣
am determined to maintain a positive attitude while living with the new changes⁣
I’ve had to make in my life. As I have a lifelong history of Depression and⁣
Anxiety, having a heart attack at 49 years old has been a bit of a shock. Jennifer’s⁣
Diagnosed Freedom worksheet has helped me to identify exactly how I want to⁣
move forward with my life and has helped me to clarify what’s important to me⁣
and what I can let go of. I love the⁣
down-to-earth and fun way the worksheet is written and I’m excited about my⁣
life again.“⁣
⁣ “Thank you, Fiona.  If you want to experience this service for⁣
yourself, head to the link in my bio or shoot me a DM for more details.

August will always be a month I celebrate with as much joy as possible. Two years ago this month I was suffering from extreme fatigue, joint pain, significant hair loss, depression, struggling to take a shower, emergency room visits, pumped full of steroids, and frustrated bc no one could tell me what was wrong.
.

As I sit here in California..surrounded with love about to celebrate an amazing human being I am beyond grateful..filled with joy.

Lupus is something I have it isn’t who I am. This..this laughing..smiling..loving..strong..worthy woman is who I am. To my lupus warriors..keep fighting and find the joy where you can and hold tight. If you’re reading this you are still here..and that is something to celebrate. #IAmNotMyLupus

Today was a milestone treatment day for me in #Mexico. I received #mesenchymal #stemcells for the first time. 14 million of them!!! My #stemcelltherapy from September 2018 up until this point consisted of injections  of animal stem cells derived from shark. The injections were a turning point for me in my #recovery but still only stepping stones to prepare my #immunesystem and body to receive these special human #supercells flown in from Mexico City and administered through #IV. Praying this will be the massive boost my #mitochondria needs.
.
I am just so thankful to have found these doctors just over the border who study and understand these #diseases and the way they effect the entire body, mind, and emotions. They actually listen and believe us! Unless you are in the US medical system with a #tickborne illness or an #autoimmune condition, you may not realize how rare that is!!
.
Thank you to all my lovely friends and followers who reached out to wish me well today and let me know you were thinking of me. I'm so grateful for your support and encouragement that truly keeps me going through the down times! 💚💚
.
Now I will lay low for a few days, rest and recover, and give the #cells a chance to work their magic!! (I'm kinda excited about the excuse to binge-watch the new season of Mindhunter! Woohoo!!)

Still sore and in pain from the colonoscopy and prep I did a few days ago . Putting your body through a rough bowel prep and then having a scope poking around inflamed / irritated intestines can leave you feeling even worse than before hand
.

My GI recommended that I use dicyclomine to help with the extra pain and cramping . It’s actually been helping a lot and I’m not needing to resort to controlled pain killers .  I’m also trying to stick with liquid / soft / easier foods to digest in the mean time . The heating pad is a must have as well .
.
Do you also feel like you need days to recover after a colonoscopy? What do you do to help ? .

About me👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼
.
.
.
 I know every end of health. Ive been on top, reached the bottom, back on top, found myself in an even more sick body than before, and then came out even higher once again. 
At 13 was an autoimmune nightmare and was told I’d end up in a wheelchair. Fast forward 8 years later....Im a kickboxing instructor 🥊🥋👊🏼 How did I do it? 🤔

One. Step. At. A. Time. 
I walked for 5 minutes. Those 5 minutes became 15. Those walks became runs. 🏃🏼‍♀️ that sick girl became an athlete. 
I changed every corner of my life until I was no longer confined by the walls that illness/anxiety/trauma/guthealth tried to box me in. 
Health is not just about what you put in your body. It’s how you enrich your mind 🧠 body 👤and soul 🙏🏼 as a balanced whole. 
I still have many miles to walk in my own healing journey, but every step forward brings me further! 
And with that, I hope to inspire you to find #awaytowell 😊

Abs have been sore these past few days, but I'm still grinding away 🏋🏼‍♂️ Fortunately, I managed 4 sets with the Pallof Press 🙌🏼 It's definitely tough on the abs, but I'm always working to get stronger. 💪🏼

5 hours and still going without readings from my $250 a month CGM today....two consecutive warm ups as I had to reconnect my transmitter as it wouldn't accept calibrations after the first one, now 3 hours in after the second warm up and again not accepting calibrations - looks like I have go through another warm up, lose a brand new sensor and reconnect the old enlite transmitter and very glad I had a replacement enlite sensor in the cupboard. Going back to libre or dexcom is looking rather appealing of late. Can't wait to have a night of being woken up with incorrect readings and calibration requests 🙄 ◼️ #typeonediabetes #type1diabetes #type1 #diabetes #lowcarb #diabetesAustralia #typeoneisme #t1dlookslikeme #diabetic #diabetesawareness #chronicillness #autoimmune #type1warrior #type1strong #type1life #t1d  #t1dproblems #diabetesaus #diabeticmum #carbcounting #medtronic #cgm #thisistypeone #hbA1c #fibromyalgia

And why wouldn’t you! Gotta say I was pretty excited to wake with a little skip in my step this morning! So my beautiful boy Seth took me to see the ocean, and it most certainly did not disappoint! Even had a little walk on the sand!! Yippee so happy 😊

Are you tired? Moody? Running on empty? Low energy? Skin problems? Headaches? Digestive issues?

Kinesiology testing can easily and non invasively determine if you have any nutritional imbalances leading to any of these symptoms 🙌
We can also test for food intolerances/sensitivities or nutritional deficiencies.
(Its a great way to test babies and children!) Nutrition plays a key role in your overall wellbeing, immune health, hormonal balance, & your mood and energy levels. 
If you'd like to know more about your current state of health, and quickly and easily determine if you are depleted in certain nutrients (learning what foods you need to eat more of), book a session today 😊

Gosh, I’m still scratching my head after this one! Over the years I’ve had many situations where I’ve been stigmatised, judged and had assumptions made about me from able-bodied people. Today was a first, I copped a mouthful from a person driving a disability scooter! Yep! True. ♿️
I had to leave the house today to have blood tests.  Walking was difficult so I shuffled along at a snails pace. Approaching the pathology clinic I was faced with a choice of steps or ramp. I took time to contemplate which route to take. I decided The ramp would probably be the least intense for me. ♿️
So up I go. Two-thirds the way up I realise there is a lady in a scooter waiting to drive down the ramp, so I move to the side and continue walking up. ♿️
Next minute I am accosted by the women for not only using the ramp but for walking so slowly that she had to wait. I was pronounced selfish and inconsiderate. ♿️
Had I had the energy I might have verbally unleashed back at her or possibly popped her tire! But I didn’t, the irony of it all just made me laugh out loud. 🚹
A good reminder for us all to not just give others the benefit of the doubt, but go a step further and assume positive intent from others. 🚹
Shifting YOUR perception of the world — can transform YOUR world!
