Being an Advocate for Your own Health and Wellness

I've recently been exploring different options and methods for getting some answers about my own health concerns and taking my health into my own hands. It isn't that I don't trust my doctors, it's just that I don't feel like the gap has been bridged enough between western medicine and holistic medicine. I'm still not seeing a strong enough emphasis from doctors on the food we eat, and it's ability to either cause or correct disease and illness. I see a Naturopath, and I have a primary care provider trained in Western medicine. I believe there is a time and a place for both. Ultimately, I would love to find a really good functional medicine doctor in my area that I can work with to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. But until then, I will always be a champion for my own health and wellness. In fact, I feel so strongly about this that I just started school again to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. I am really excited for this next chapter in my career, as well as my own personal health and wellness. We only have one body, it is up to us to take care of it.

When Let's Get Checked reached out to me about a potential partnership for their at home wellness test kits, I knew right away that it was a great fit for me. Based on all of the questions that you guys have been asking me, I can tell that this information and resource is a good fit for you also. They asked me which tests I was the most interested in taking. Since I was already well away of my food sensitivities, and have already tested twice for those, I wanted to take the next steps towards addressing some of the other symptoms I have been experiencing. I said that I was interested in the Lyme Disease Test, the Liver Test, and the Thyroid Test. Before I tell you more about Let's Get Checked, and about these tests, first let me tell you what led me down this path in the first place. I'm going to share something with you that I have never shared about myself in this space.

Nailing down symptoms to their root cause can be somewhat like looking for a needle in a haystack. This is especially true when you are dealing with potential autoimmune diseases, as many of them share a lot of cross-over symptoms. Sometimes it is necessary to figure out what you DO NOT have, in order to begin to nail down exactly what might be going on in your body. I will share with you some of the symptoms I have been experiencing that led me to look into further testing. However, please note that I am not looking for a potential diagnosis from anyone that might be reading this. I have been tackling my health challenges head on and working with my healthcare team to figure out what might be going on. I never shared this with any of you, but about 2 years ago, I was given a preliminary diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. To give this diagnosis based on family history, symptoms and a physical examination, without the results of my MRIs coming back, was both reckless and damaging on the part of the neurologist. It led to a lot of extra stress, worry, tears, and panic.

You see, my aunt passed away from complications of her MS. My uncle is blind and confined to a wheelchair due to his MS, and I have 3 cousins my age that have also been diagnosed with MS. It was a natural leap, especially based on symptoms, to assume that is what was going on with me as well. (For me, not for a trained, 25 year veteran neurologist)  After the results of my MRI came back that I had no lesions on my brain, he actually said to me “I think your symptoms are psychological and you should speak to someone”. That is the very last time I ever set foot into a Group Health. To be told you have MS, and then to be told you are faking it was far more than I was willing to allow from a person that was supposed to have my highest good in mind. The MRI did reveal that I had a small pineal gland cyst about 7 x 5 x 7 mm, and that I have a Empty Sella Syndrome. This is where the pituitary gland is deflated and the space that is should fill is instead filled with cerebrospinal fluid. He told me these were not of concern and that the pituitary gland was vestigial at this point. UM, WHAT NOW? The pituitary gland is the hub of the endocrine system and he was calling it vestigial as if I had been born with a tail. It was at this very moment that I realized just how truly broken our healthcare system was and that if I didn't start championing for myself, that no one would.

Okay, so back to those symptoms I was experiencing: 

Numbing and tingling on the left side of my face
Pins and needles in my hands and feet
Heavy, dead feeling legs
Vision problems with my left eye
Anxiety
Extreme heat intolerance
Excessive urination
Fatigue and brain fog
Severe eye twitch (left side)
Constipation
Joint and muscle pain
and more…

These are all symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis. They are also symptoms of many other diseases and illnesses. There was a lot more that transpired between the incorrect MS diagnosis and where we are today, but I  will spare you the majority of it and say that I was finally able to trace a lot of the symptoms back to undiagnosed food sensitivities. Furthering my point above that physicians still have a long way to go where nutritional is concerned. YES! Many of the symptoms I was experiencing were related to eating eggs, dairy, and gluten and NOT in fact multiple sclerosis.

But alas, cutting those foods out did not rectify all of my symptoms and I have still been continuing my quest for wellness. Many of these are crossover symptoms with various thyroid issues, liver issues and lyme disease. Thus, why I chose the tests that I did.

First let me tell you what is included in these at home wellness test kits:

The process for testing couldn't be simpler. Best of all, it takes place right in the comfort of your own home, and for quite a bit less than you would pay to have your doctor run the same tests. I should know, I paid out of pocket for my IgG and IgE antibody assessment test that my naturopath ran for me. Let me start by telling you what comes in the kit:

Instructions on how to activate your kit
Instructions how to conduct the test
Lancets
Bandaids, gauze and sterile wipes
Blood collection vial
Biohazard bag
Prepaid shipping envelope

So how do these home wellness test kits work anyway?

The process is very simple:

Once you have activated your kit wash your hands with warm water to activate blood flow.
Simply clean your finger with the sterile wipe provided, then dry your finger with tissue.
Prick the side of your index or middle finger on your non-dominant hand with the lancet while your arm is pointed downwards above the vial.
Fill the provided vial to the line that is visible on the vial. Ensure that you reach this line for quick delivery of your results.

Seal your sample and put it in the biohazard bag, put the bag back in the box, put the box in the shipping envelope and send it off. BOOM! Done! Just like that. Then within about 10 days time, you will have your results sent directly to your inbox. I made a video for you to show exactly how simple the process truly is.

So what did the results of my at home wellness test kits show?

You will get an email letting you know that the results of your at home wellness test kit have arrived. From there, you can login to your dashboard on Let's Get Checked to go over your results. They will also call you with your results to go over them with you and to tell you what everything means. I opted to just read mine on my own and then to call them if I had any questions. When you log in, it will show which test results are back, and it will also make recommendations for future testing. (Check out all of their at home wellness test kits here)

Thyroid Test Results

The results of my Thyroid Test showed that everything was in the normal ranges. This is conclusive with a testing that I had done recently through my doctor. It is important to note that in addition to your T3 and T4 levels, they are also testing your TSH, Free T4, Anti-Thyroid Peroxidase, Anti-Thyroglobulin. This gives you a much more accurate picture of your thyroid function. Often times, unless you really push for it, your doctor will only check T3 and T4 when ordering thyroid tests.

In addition to just providing me the ranges, I can expand each test result to read more about what it means and to also connect with a nurse to speak about any concerns or questions I might have. They don't just leave you high and dry with your results. I think I can safely rule out my thyroid as the cause of my issues. Two test with conclusive results leave me feeling comfortable enough to make this statement. (Get the Thyroid Test Here)

Lyme Disease Test Results

My Lyme disease test came back negative, suggesting that I do not now, nor have I ever had Lyme disease. I wasn't really too worried about this one, but I wanted to rule it out to be safe because Lyme diseases can prevent itself as so many different things and it one of the hardest things to nail down as a diagnosis.

Liver Test Results

My liver test results are where things get a little trickier. It came back that my ALT and Gamma GT were both quite elevated. They told me that it could be the result of certain medications or of alcohol. I am not on any prescription medications, but I do enjoy the occasion or sometimes more than occasional cocktail. I did drink wine the night before taking these tests, which in hindsight probably wasn't the smartest. But could that be enough to trigger these results? Or is something more at work here? (Get the Liver Test Here)

I did some research on my own about what these results could mean. I didn't want to end up self diagnosing through Dr. Google, so instead, I plan to take these results to my Naturopath and have her confirm them and put together a plan for me. However, I can tell you that whatever she comes up with, I will strictly adhere to. I don't want to mess around with my liver function.

Here is what I do know to be true about GGT:

It is an enzyme that is always present in low levels, but when elevated levels are found, it is usually a sign of some sort of liver damage. It is also a strong indicator that your liver cells may be damaged due to inflammation. The testing is not specific and will not help in determining what type of liver damage you might have, but it does signal that there is a problem. These levels will be elevated with liver cancer, viral hepatitis, alcoholic liver disease, autoimmune liver disease, cirrhosis, etc.

High ALT levels are also indicative of some sort of liver damage. I am eager to go over these results with my doctor, and to retest to confirm. Mostly, I am just thankful to be armed with this information in case it really is a sign of something bigger. Over the course of my entire medical journey, none of the doctors or specialists I have seen ever thought to test my liver. Perhaps my symptoms didn't warrant it at the time, or perhaps it just got missed. However, I know now and can do whatever is necessary to hopefully correct the issues.

Stay tuned for more on this topic. I will keep you updated as I go over these liver results with my doctor and put together a plan.

EverlyWell Home Food Sensitivity Test Results

EverlyWell Home Food Sensitivity Test Results

These are my EverlyWell Home Food Sensitivity Test Results. It was great to compare these with my testing from a year ago and to see the progress I have made on my gut healing journey.

EverlyWell Food Sensitivity Test | Peace Love and Low Carb

 

I'm excited to share the results with all of you from my EverlyWell Home Food Sensitivity Test. As many of you know, I have been continuing to work on my overall gut health and getting to the bottom of some menacing symptoms, that turned out to be food sensitivity related. Before I dive in and tell you about EverlyWell and how it works, I should back up and tell you about the testing that I had done about a year ago.

I already knew that gluten was a problem for me and that I was sensitive to gluten. I have known that for about 6 years now. But last summer I started suspected that my body was no longer handling eggs and dairy very well. I went to my naturopath to ask her what she felt the most reliable testing was for food insensitive, food intolerances, and food allergies. For my specific case, she said that she thought an IgG antibody assessment test would be the best route for me. IgG stands for Immunoglobulin G. An immunoglobulin test measures the level of certain immunoglobulins, or antibodies, in the blood. Antibodies are proteins made by the immune system to fight antigens, such as bacteria, viruses, and toxins. The body makes different immunoglobulins to combat different antigens. IgG is the most abundant type of antibody found in the blood and bodily fluids. The role of an IgG antibody assessment is to see which foods your body is creating an abundance of antibodies for. In the simplest of terms, it determines which foods your body is treating as a foreign invader and potentially causing reactive symptoms like gas, bloating, sinus issues, joint pain, rashes, headache etc.

My results came back that I was highly reactive to eggs – white and yolk, chicken and duck. I was also highly reactive to casein, whey, milk, cheese, and most other dairy. Gluten was on there of course, but I already knew that one. I was able to take this information and create an elimination diet for myself that excluded these foods. Afterwards I felt MUCH better. The goal with any elimination protocol is the find out which foods are problematic for you, do the necessary healing, and then hopefully be able to reintroduce these foods. The hope for me was reintroduction since these foods have only been problematic over the last year or so. My goal was to cut out these foods, work on my gut health and then reintroduce them.

I recently reintroduced dairy and eggs, but much less frequently than I used to eat them. I noticed some very minor symptoms and wanted to see if a new round of testing would mirror what I was feeling in my body. That is when I decided to retest using the EverlyWell Home Food Sensitivity Test.

EverlyWell Home Food Sensitivity Test

The process is very easy! The package arrives and it already includes everything you need to take the test right in the comfort of your own home. You register the kit online and then you are ready to go.

The package includes: Directions, alcohol prep wipe, collection card, lancets, bandaids, gauze, biohazard bag, pre-paid return shipping envelope.

The EverlyWell Home Food Sensitivity Test tests for reactions to 96 common foods. You can read more about which foods it measures here.

The process is extremely simple and only takes a couple of minutes:

Wash your hands and dry thoroughly.
Clean your ring finger or pinky finger with the alcohol prep wipe.
Use the lancet to prick your finger.
Put one droplet of blood on each of the circles on the collection card (let the card dry for 30 minutes)
Place the card in the biohazard bag and put it back in the box.
Put the box in the provided envelope, slap on the shipping label, and drop it in the mailbox.
Send it off to the lab. Easy peasy!

Check out the video below to see just how easy this test is to take. It really couldn't be a simpler process.

Getting the results:

The results come very fast. It was less than an 8 day turnaround time. Not bad at all. You get an email telling you that your lab results are back, and you log into the site and they are all there for you to review.

SO, what did mine show? Well, much like my first test, they confirmed what I already knew to be true at the time. And in this case, I was right that I am definitely tolerating those foods better. Although they all showed up again, I was MUCH less reactive to them. In fact, I had no highly reactive foods. I didn't even have any medium reactive foods.

The test results are broken up into 4 categories of reactivity – High, Moderate, Mild and Low

I had 20 mild reactions. I've listed them below. The ones I have highlighted showed up as very highly reactive on my testing a year ago. I was so pleased to see that what I was feeling in my body was confirmed by these results. It shows me that everything I have done over the last year to help heal my gut has been working.

egg white
lobster
shrimp
walnut, black
chicken
cheese, cheddar
yeast, bakers
potato, sweet
egg yolk
milk, cows
safflower
potato, white
cheese, cottage
coffee
basil
carrot
bran
barley
yogurt
cheese, mozzarella 

Once you have your results, what you decide to do with them is up to you. Typically an elimination diet is the way to go. Sometimes you don't realize how bad you feel until you feel better. By that I mean that you get used to living with certain symptoms and they become your new normal. Maybe you have a chronic cough, or nasal drip. Perhaps it is a nagging rash or a dull but constant headache. It is easy to forget that you CAN and SHOULD feel better. For me, eliminating these foods and then reintroducing them made all the difference.

If you suspect you have food sensitivities, I recommend testing, course correcting with an elimination protocol, and then retesting to affirm you are on the right path. While I don't believe there is a one sized fits all approach to navigating intolerances and sensitivities, I believe these IgG tests are a great starting point. There are a lot of factors to be considered when testing for food sensitivities or true food allergies. While these tests aren't the be all, end all of what you should be eating, or eliminating forever, they are great starting point to helping you figure out how to begin healing your body and adequately fueling it.

Keto Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies

Keto Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies

These Keto Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies are soft and chewy, with all the delicious flavors of fall. Best of all, they are low carb and gluten free.

It's fall y'all! Well, if you are visiting this recipe, there is a good chance that it is fall or at least close to it. In my part of the world, the weather is getting cooler, the nights are getting shorter, and the leaves are beginning to fall. It makes me want to cozy up with the pups, in front of the fire,  with a big mug of Keto Pumpkin Spice Boosted Coffee.

Cooler weather means using the oven more, slow cooking all the things, and BAKING! It also means that it is the season of pumpkin EVERYTHING. So it only seems fitting that I present you with these Keto Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies. At this point, I have kind of mastered the art of chewy keto cookies. Don't believe me? Check out these Keto Flourless Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies, or maybe these Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies. Still not convinced? How about these Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies.

With my upcoming dairy free keto cookbook, I have been hard at work testing lots of new dairy free dessert recipes. This recipe is a modified version of my Keto Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie. In both recipes I used sugar free maple syrup as the low carb sweetener instead of using erythritol. I am a BIG FAN. It makes for a really soft and chewy low carb cookie. It is sweetened with monk fruit and erythritol. This is the low carb maple syrup I use.

You want to know what makes a mindblowingly delicious keto dessert? Take two of these cookies and use them to sandwich some of the mascarpone cream from my Chocolate Dipped Keto Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches and make a low carb cookie sandwich. SO GOOD! And to think that people say this lifestyle is hard.

 

A COUPLE OF NOTES:

I like to pull these keto cookies out of the oven at the 10 minute mark and lightly press on them to flatten. This makes for a deliciously dense and chewy cookie.
If you scoop them in large mounds, I recommend flattening them when you pull them out of the oven for a denser, cookie like texture. For a more airy cake-like texture, leave them puffed up.
If you are making smaller cookies and making more than 18, I would decrease the cooking time to 8 to 10 minutes.
Store these keto cookies in an airtight container. They are even better the next day!
I have not tested this recipe as a coconut flour cookie recipe, but if you have a nut allergy I’m sure it would be equally as delicious with coconut flour. To substitute coconut flour, you would need to add a lot more liquid, and eggs.
I have made this recipe with both butter and unrefined coconut oil, and they turn out equally as great.

Description

This recipe is a delicious pumpkin version of my Keto Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

3 cups blanched almond flour (I use this brand)
2 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice (get the recipe here)
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I use this brand)
½ cup sugar-free maple syrup (I swear by this brand)
½ cup butter, melted ( use unrefined coconut oil for dairy free)
1 cup sugar-free dark chocolate chips (I use this brand)

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
Combine the almond flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Crack the eggs into a medium mixing bowl. Add the vanilla extract, and whisk to combine. Add the maple syrup and coconut oil to the egg mixture, whisking as you pour.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and beat with a hand mixer until all ingredients are well incorporated.
Using a rubber spatula, fold the chocolate chips into the batter.
Use a cookie scoop to drop balls of dough, about 2 tablespoons worth, onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Start checking at 10 minutes.
Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

These Keto Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies are rich, chewy and even better than their sugary, carb laden counterparts.

Have you ever had a keto chocolate chip cookie that just gets better and better days after you made it? Me either… until I made these. I thought they were great straight off the cookie sheet, scorching my mouth because I refused to let them cool, but boy, oh boy, they were even more amazing when I grabbed one from the pantry the next day. Rich and chewy, and the perfect texture of a real flour based, conventional sugar, high carb cookie. In fact, if I hadn't made these Keto Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies and someone served me one, I would never be able to tell that they were low carb cookies at all.

I am hard at work on a dairy free keto cookbook and this was the first dessert recipe that I made for the new book. I used sugar free maple syrup as the low carb sweetener instead of using erythritol as I normally would. I think this really added to how soft and chewy these cookies turned out. I'll definitely be sweetening more recipes this way.

You want to know what makes a mindblowingly delicious keto dessert? Take two of these cookies and use them to sandwich some of my Low Carb Mason Jar Chocolate Ice Cream and make a low carb cookie ice cream sandwich. SO GOOD! And to think that people say this lifestyle is hard.

 

A couple of notes:

I like to pull these keto cookies out of the oven at the 10 minute mark and lightly press on them to flatten. This makes for a deliciously dense and chewy cookie.
If you scoop them in large mounds, I recommend flattening them when you pull them out of the oven for a denser, cookie like texture. For a more airy cake-like texture, leave them puffed up.
If you are making smaller cookies and making more than 18, I would decrease the cooking time to 8 to 10 minutes.
You do not have to include the grass-fed gelatin, but it does make them chewier. I got the idea of adding gelatin to cookies from my talented friend Cristina of The Castaway Kitchen. Check out her Keto Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.
You can leave out the caramel extract and sea salt flakes to make a delicious plain low carb chocolate chip cookie
Store these keto cookies in an airtight container. They are even better the next day!
I have not tested this recipe as a coconut flour cookie recipe, but if you have a nut allergy I'm sure it would be equally as delicious with coconut flour. To substitute coconut flour, you would need to add a lot more liquid, and eggs.

Keto Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Author: Peace Love and Low Carb

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 22 minutes

Yield: 18 cookies

Print Recipe

Ingredients

3 cups blanched almond flour (I use this brand)
1 tablespoon grass-fed gelatin (I use this brand)
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I use this brand)
1 teaspoon caramel extract
½ cup sugar-free maple syrup (I swear by this brand)
½ cup unrefined coconut oil, melted
1 cup sugar-free dark chocolate chips (I use this brand)
Maldon sea salt flakes (get them here)

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
Combine the almond flour, gelatin, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Crack the eggs into a medium mixing bowl. Add the vanilla extract and caramel extract and whisk to combine. Add the maple syrup and coconut oil to the egg mixture, whisking as you pour.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and beat with a hand mixer until all ingredients are well incorporated.
Using a rubber spatula, fold the chocolate chips into the batter.
Use a cookie scoop to drop balls of dough, about 2 tablespoons worth, onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Start checking at 10 minutes.
Sprinkle with sea salt flakes, and let cook for 10 minutes.
