Why I can’t drink stupid Green Tea and the Autoimmune Phenomenon Explained…attempted.

You know how Green Tea is one of the most healthiest things in the world for you to drink. That’s right! For you. Not me.

Why not me? Because I’m Th2 dominant. And many of you lupus or chemical sensitive bubble people may be too.  (For the record, I am totally deja vu-ing that I my have already written an article about this, but since then I have mourned the explosion, and henceforth, death of many a brain cell.  This may sound morbid but it hilarious in my head! Er..Which…could be a sign of senility.  Quick! Someone check my pre-frontal cortex integrity.)

What it means is…I don’t know how to explain it.  But I got you some great insight on why green tea makes you sick. Not just nauseous, but at first, you feel good.  Oh you feel so good. Then gradually you feel great. Without noticing you find yourself organizing the mountain of bills and junk mail you have ignored for eons.  Next thing you know, you can suddenly do a full squat again and you start cleaning your house and painting walls like a cross between a lizard and a gazelle, maximizing your range of motion with every springy step and bouncy leap. And then, what? Your fingers don’t hurt. Time to bust out the decade old thank you card project and write like Hemingway.  The adult vocabulary is summoned back to mind. You are unstoppable. Time to buy some kettlebells for the crossfit competition. The force is with you.

But in a few days, you realize you are so active you are barely sleeping and your husband accuses you of being manic as you straighten the fringes of your welcome mat at 2 in the morning . You are so fracking happy you could cry. And then you’re so damn overjoyed you can throw a plate at the next person’s head who talks to you.  Things went from bright to technicolor and your eyes want to shut the sun rays up and shoot warbling birds.  Your hands and feet stealthily start to feel like sausages again and everything you eat hurts you soul again.  Your head is banging. You get cold sores all over your mouth. The infections begin. The sob fest increases. And you retreat back to the Gollum you once were.  Th dominance.

It has happened to me with Green Tea.  Turmeric. Moringa.  Diatomaceous Earth. These are some of the top shelf superfoods of the world.  And they are traiterous bitches.

I have attributed this to Candida, the gross term Leaky Gut, which goes hand in hand with the aforementioned.  But could Th dominance fall in line with those too. Who is the chicken and where is the egg? Are all these related or all they independent of one another.  It sure isn’t a coincidence that I have all of these.

Well, time to be schooled.

Click here, here, and here.  And you have been educated and enlightened about you or a whiny, cranky loved one.

Green Tea Hazards

WHAT IS THE ROLE OF TH1 AND TH2 IN AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE?

HOW DO YOU BALANCE TH1 AND TH2 IN AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE?

I’m typing much under the deceptive balancing act of Moringa for the moment.  A wonderful life saving supplement that I once that had miraculously cured me. I have learned, in a jam, in a pinch, an act of desperation, to sample a bit here and there. Test where my balance is. It’s autoimmune Russian roulette.  One day it might bring me back to invincible for a day, another it might just finish demolishing me.  I don’t take this risk lightly and if you read the articles above, your t-helper cells should be checked and balanced by a doctor. Most likely a functional medicine doctor.

A few weeks ago I had some wonderful days with turmeric.  But I only dare take it a week, before my body becomes overstimulated and falls gets into full battle regalia.  If however, you do not have autoimmune imbalances…take turmeric instead of ibuprofen and acetaminophen. Always and forever. Drink green tea like sugar water.  And if you can afford it, moringa it up. You might just feel like Supergirl.

Click on picture for link on the best deals and high quality products . Not all Vitacost by the way. It sucks when I’m so honest with you, cause I make less money.

I have personally used these products and they were wonderful, like I said, until…reminder that these are beneficial for Normals.

And if you find you are having this frustration, that no one supplement can help you because its up and down, roller coaster, smash your head-confusing. Don’t fret…as these things come to the surface of research and technology, moms and Pinners out there are corralling these findings and sharing their process with the world in simple terms we can understand, with less trial and error than if we are to do it on our own.  The ancient world had healers for this type of thing…the answer is out there somewhere. And hopefully we can find a few to make us invincible for a couple more years.

Peace Out.
