Had an amazing morning at the Farmer’s Market. Let’s see what I can make with all this yummy stuff! #keepitclean#aipcommunity #farmersmarket
🌟What are you reading Wednesday✨@medicalmedium has released his third book, Thyroid Healing. I pre-ordered it months ago on @Amazon. This time of year has us pretty, crazy 😜busy keeping up with the little one’s activities, holidays, etc. So last night I stayed up late and made it to chapter 5. If I were back in my twenties I would have stayed up all night and read it cover to cover 📖💥 I can only share with you how taking Anthony’s advice and following his recommendations has helped me tremendously. How I’m now going on 2 months without any thyroid support and am thriving. Autoimmune Protocol, anti virals, clean supplements, daily exercise, daily meditations – the blessing is that my Hashimoto’s is in “remission.” I will have more bloodwork done early 2018 to make sure all my numbers are still where they should be, but I can tell you this, I feel great and I’m not suffering from any thyroid symptoms that have plagued me for years. It was a leap of faith, but everything I’ve read and am now reading in this new book resonates with me, or my mom, or a friend, or a friend’s patient. The lack of instant gratification proved challenging, but as stated before, things take time. I encourage you to read this book if you’re suffering from any type of thyroid issue, keep an open mind, and see if your intuition guides you down a slightly different path. Our guts control our health, right? So let your “gut instinct” give you some help towards healing along the way! Sending all the positivity, 💕 love, meditative energy and prayers 🙏🏼to our AIP Community! You’re on the right track and everything is possible! #heal #healthedocumentary#thyroid #hashimotosremission #medicalmedium#coloidalsilver #antivirals #keepitclean#hopeyoucandoit #aipcommunity #aipworks #paleo#antiinflammatory #thyroidhealing #ebv#epsteinbarrvirus #candida #guthealth #gutinstinct#intuition #eatrealfood #leapoffaith
Hello AIP Community!
A few days ago, Tim and I took the car in for an oil change and did something out of the ordinary, we left the car there and walked to the chiropractor for our weekly tune up. What a simple idea, a little over a mile round trip, but out walking nonetheless. On the way back to get the car I felt different. There was something so nice and natural about being out walking. I felt more human. We rarely go anywhere without our car because time is such a precious thing, and our to-do lists are always pages long. But that day, we decided that we’d let it all go, and enjoy a slower paced morning and get some fresh air. It was delightful!
CrossFit lauched their “Be More Human” slogan sometime last year if I’m not mistaken, suggesting that CrossFitters get out of their boxes and go outside to play. Ski, swim, bike, run, hike, etc. I loved their message, but back when it came out I was so busy working on recovering my health, being a mommy and running our CrossFit gym, that I couldn’t find time to “Be more human.” How ironic, the one thing I needed, I was too busy for.
The goal for all of us this weekend, starting today -Fitness Friday, is to be more human. Unplug from daily life – I said it – leave the electronics behind for a while. Choose from any of the following activities that will get you moving and out in the sunshine a bit:
Walking, Riding a bike, Swimming, Running, Jogging, go to a Farmers Market, Water Skiing, Rafting, wake boarding, paddle boating, row boat, play at the park with your kids, Kick a soccer ball around at the park, dance…you get where I’m going with this!
Accountability: Today I’m walking to the gym, working out, then walking to meet Kat for tea and some AIP work. Then Tim and I are taking Ashleigh to family camp, Camp Augusta, for the weekend where there is no cell signal and no where to plug in electronics…and we’re going to dance, swim, hike, play, climb, zip line, do yoga, make lip balm, etc. I’ve put it out there, and I’m sticking to it! No barbells, no Metcons, no TV, no Computer, no Pokemon Go, no work – I’m going to focus on being more human, and my wish is that you do to!
Signing off until Monday,
Hello AIP Community!
I’m not one to reinvent the wheel, here’s our post about Celiac Disease from our Instagram account. 🙂
Hi AIP Community! Happy Friday! This week I’ve really tried to mix things up with my workouts because my stomach and energy are not 100%…perhaps the 10 weeks of constant running around over summer has caught up? My system is OFF and I’m feeling lousy, but I need to keep moving. SO no, I’m not pregnant, I’m inflamed – what a GREAT T-shirt idea, huh? copyright Coach Lori 🙂
So this week I did the WOD (workout of the day) at my gym, Tuesday, we went for a hike and that was my workout. Wednesday I did the WOD at my gym, and Thursday I walked a few miles then did a 3×8 overhead squat at 105# and decided I was DONE. So below is my Friday workout, that I wrote for all of YOU! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Have you heard of the MTHFR gene mutation? Kat has, and Lori hasn’t. After discovering she in fact has this, Kat wanted to share this information with all of you to raise awareness, and maybe help you understand why certain things are happening to you and your health.
“An MTHFR mutation is a problem associated with poor methylation and enzyme production. MTHFR mutations affect every person differently, sometimes contributing to hardly any noticeable symptoms at all, while other times leading to serious, long-term health problems.” – Dr. Axe
It is estimated that 45% of people suffer from a MTHFR defect, which causes gene deficiencies. This leads to poor cellular health, hormonal imbalances, decreased immune function and mitochondrial dysfunction.
This crappy gene inhibits Glutathione production, which makes you more vulnerable to toxins. The accumulation of these toxins leads to disease and premature aging.
Knowing is half the battle – this is certainly something worth knowing when you’re battling autoimmune diseases. I know I’m emailing my Dr now to test for this gene during my September bloodwork!
Keep it clean! ~Lori
