My wife has been off work for over a month now, having suffered with a bizarre chain of (what's been summarized as) infections (UTI, sinus, ear, then kidney?) which (western medicine felt) impacted her blood cell counts/levels. I believe in the end they labelled her with pancytopenia, basically an autoimmune condition to our understanding.
My online research (which kept bringing me back to Robb Wolf's site) hinted towards a hormonal root cause:
Before we did anything ourselves, we thought it might be a good idea to seek a Naturopathic Doctor. This experience ended up being short lived, but not before we at least had a saliva test which should have told us about her endocrine / hormonal system. Hence the reason behind the ended ND experience, low/no result interpretation. We left knowing only that her cortisol levels were high in the morning and in the evening.
Today, our Paleo Approach book and cook book arrived and my wife devoured it... learning many things:
We will be following the Autoimmune protocol for a while and placed an order for the DIM (diindolylmethane) and Calcium D-glucarate, which should be arriving in the next couple weeks via Amazon.
Thank You Robb & Sarah for providing our inspiration behind good health and healing!
