If you want to treat your PPP naturally and if you read my blog posts and other platforms focusing on how to heal autoimmune disease by repairing your immune system, you probably have an idea of what you need to do. The key is to focus on the below steps. I'm going to keep it short and precise.
Bust the stress
Find ways to reduce and manage stress. Do something that relaxes you every day – yoga, meditation, calming music, or even just a hot bath. Seriously you need to remove stress in your life to successfully beat PPP.
Cut the crap
Avoid all processed foods and sugary fizzy drinks. Stop eating sugar. Cut the carbs, and work toward improving gut health. Stop eating gluten!
Invest in good quality supplements. Your body needs good probiotics, zinc, vitamins D3+K2, magnesium.
Juice it up
Adopt a daily juicing regime to give your body all the vitamins and minerals it needs to rebuild and heal. Stick with the greens for maximum impact.
Learn how to cook nutritious and healthy meals that don’t include gluten and sugar.
Just say no
Cut down on alcohol and smoking. Drugs are a definite no-no.
Just say yes – to exercise!
Exercise daily. Go for walks, practice yoga, go swimming. Get active, your body will thank you.
But even if you now know what to do, the question is how do you do it? It might seem overwhelming at first to eliminate certain foods you are used to. What do you eat instead of bread? What if you are craving sugar? What if you feel there's no time to cook?
To get well and to heal yourself you need to be committed! If you feel there's no time, make the time, try to stay away from social media sites such as Facebook and cut down on watching television shows and other time filling activities. Learn how to cook a few dishes and rotate them. I tend to cook and eat the same food for a whole week as it's convenient and it saves me time doing the shopping and think about what to cook for the next day.
A typical day:
Fist thing: A green Juice or a big glas of water
Supplements: D3+K2, Probiotics, Zinc, Chlorella, clorestal
Breakfast: A boiled egg (or two) plus an avocado or a banana.
Snack: An apple or an orange
Lunch: Local traditional food, in Sweden that would be Potatoes, meat, fish, gravy with loads of vegetables including fermented vegetables such as sauerkraut (natural probiotics). (no processed food, no sugar, nor gluten). If you're a vegetarian, substitute the meat with mushrooms or Halloumi cheese. Eat as much as you want until you're full.
Snack: An apple or some other fruit.
Dinner: Same as lunch, the smart thing is to cook plenty for dinner so there are leftovers for tomorrow's lunch.
After dinner try not to eat anything else, let your stomach rest and recover. If you get hungry between meals drink water or green tea to fill you up, if you're starving snack on vegetables. The thing is if you had enough good food full of vitamins, minerals and fat for lunch/dinner you shouldn't feel hungry in the evening.
