Well, I had my second infusion yesterday and I had an allergic reaction. My throat closed up, I couldn't breath, I almost passed out. Luckily, the nurses are always around so they gave me some antihistamines, which of course, I had an reaction too! They got enough in me before I started to react, so that made the reaction go away. I felt sick the rest of the day and I can no longer take that medication. I have tried every medication they have on the market and I am allergic to 3 of them and the others don't work at all. So I am waiting to see what is going to happen next. Many suggest holistic medications, etc and those who have reading my blog for awhile know I have gone that route. When I did, I lost so much blood that my blood count dropped to 3 from 13 and I was hospitalized (on 2 different occasions of trying the holistic way). My doctor told me I almost went into cardiac arrest. So that was when I woke up and realized that my case is too severe to only use the natural way. I am not going to lose my life because I don't want to take medications. Sorry to be harsh, but it's true. :(
Anyway, these are some pictures from last weekend and earlier in the week. We hit up our juice bar one day and I had this pressed juice: "Hawaiian Chlorophyll"- Kale, Parsley, Cucumber, Spinach, Celery, Romaine and Pineapple. Yummy!
|For the Superbowl, I made Raw Tacos. I mentioned on the Ginger is the New Pink Facebook Page that I would be making these and everyone wanted to come to my house! ;) I used this recipe and added my own guacamole and raw olives.|
|I have been drinking more green juice again and everyone has been commenting on my skin! I tell ya, this stuff is magic!|
This juice had romaine, kale, pear, cucumber and celery in it.
|One night for dinner I made a big batch of red lentils with low sodium veg broth, garlic, olive oil, celery, chickpea miso, carrot and I added quinoa to it. What a yummy idea! I garnished with some scallion.|
|I used the pulp to make some almond cookies. I added raw coconut nectar, raw carob and cinnamon. Unfortunately, these were too dry to swallow! LOL! T and I nearly choked! I think I dehydrated them for a little too long. Opps!|
|I needed some good reading material for when I have my Crohn's infusions (which won't be happening now!). I was excited to find these two gems for $5 at Barnes and Noble! SCORE!|
|Another great find from the week: fresh organic turmeric! I've been adding some to my smoothie, I can't wait to juice some!|
|Have a great weekend!! XO|
