How can I bring up this information to my doctor? He already thinks I'm nuts for researching everything.
Finding a great doctor is important. Integrative/holistic doctors are scientists, they LOVE learning and researching. Most reg. doctors do NOT do this.
My integrative doctors tell me we are partners in my healing. They want me to learn and share anything I can find and they will tell me if it might work.
The mindset of holistic doctors is very different. They are not robots. They do not just write prescriptions. That is used only if there is no choice. Prevention and actual healing is what they help with.
That is how I learned so much about diet and of course, supplements. I thought I ate healthfully, but I now do much better. I also do a ton of research and reading. I lost weight on the food I eat and it is delicious. Hubby is an amazing cook. We love to eat out at great places also, but our choices are good.
My favorite restaurant has a wonderful grilled salmon with grilled scallops on top over a bed of cooked spinach with a wonderful leek sauce. I love another dish at a great place too. Miso salmon soup with mushrooms, grilled calamari salad with avacado and a great dressing. I had grilled fish tacos and a shrimp cocktail for lunch out with hubby today. I leave the corn tortillas, don't eat that part, but if I wanted to, I could eat a little of that.
It all pays off. It is fun to learn how to eat nutritious food, low carb, no junk. The sugar I eat is coconut palm sugar or honey, small amounts. No fake sugars. Almond flour, no white stuff. There are so many wonderful products.
