Project 22 – Chapter 3

Chapter 3 – My Naturopath

My first appointment with Brooke, my Naturopath, was on 12 October 2021. I wandered into her office with my list of health concerns and we talked. I didn’t share my list with her, we just talked. 

She asked me about what brought me to see her and I shared with her what I was working on for 2022. That I’d given up chocolate in 2021 and I wanted to take my health to the next level and there were a few things concerning me. My first step was to get a baseline of my health and to work with someone like herself to do that.

My over arching desire was to create more energy in my life. I felt like I was constantly tired, sometimes worse than others, and generally just getting by. I wanted to wake up with energy, but that wasn’t the case more often than not.

Chapter 2 – My Health Baseline

I knew that Health was my focus, and to get started, I needed to understand my baseline of health, where my health was right now.

I went back to my list of health from Chapter 1:

  • Lungs issues
  • Increase strength
  • Increase agility
  • Better management or eradication of urinary tract infections
  • Low energy
  • Low iron
  • My periods
    • Heavy on day 2/3
    • Brain fog day 2/3
    • Low iron
    • Low energy
  • Better management or eradication of cold sores
  • Reduce or reverse hair loss
  • Fix low blood oxygen level around the 1 minute mark when exercising
  • Assess if I’m peri-menopausal and if so, manage it appropriately

Chapter 1 – The Idea

On 31 December 2020, I wondered ‘if I was to make one change this year, that would have the biggest impact on my life, what would it be?’

I sat and breathed into it, getting into my body, not my head, and chocolate came to me.

Hmmm interesting.

I sat with that idea. Chocolate and I were besties, and I didn’t want to give up chocolate.

We’d been through so much together – celebrations, sadness, grief, just because. I could always count on chocolate to make me feel good no matter what.

That creamy texture, the crunch and smoothness of the chocolate, and the crack of the nuts – dairy milk almond, my fav.
