I'm Jordyn (21) and have been dealing with chronic illness since I was 14. I had to drop out of my second semester of 9th grade after a move to a new town. My body had started to swell and gain weight rapidly. Along with this, I started to burn all over. No one could figure out what was going on, despite numerous tests and frequent trips to the hospital.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have a lot of chronic pain and swelling that makes my clothing size vary throughout the day. My official diagnoses are PCOS Migraines Erythromelalgia EDS (Type 3) POTS Hereditarylymphedema MTHFR Asthma and ChronicFatigueSyndrome.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I felt so alone during this journey, as I was becoming a teenager and could do nothing that my friends could. My medications made it too dangerous for me to drive and it took me 2 extra years to finish high school. I have watched my friends grow up, go to college, get married, have , and yet I stay here. I stay in the same place, still going to doctor's appointments and navigating flare-ups.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, I am no longer ashamed of the fact that I am different. I have found that my doctors began sharing my story of determination and perseverance over the years. People were inspired by me. So just this past year, in 2018, I began to do that for myself. I started to write for The Mighty and even recently began a blog. I get to share the things I have learned on my journey with people across the world. I get to bring light into their day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Even though I am mostly home bound and cannot work, I pride myself in being me. There are times I am more active and times that I cannot leave my bed for days. Chronic illness is such a journey, but it is one that I am glad to be on. I believe through that journey, I have discovered the real me. chronicillness chronicillnesswarrior chronicpain chronicpainwarrior migraine fibromyalgiaawareness spoonieproblems spooniewarrior chroniclife autoimmunedisease chronicillnessawareness chronicpainwarrior butyoudontlooksick sicklife disabled

She discusses some common as well as less well-known symptoms to keep an eye out for if you’ve been exposed. We talk about why some people have strong reactions to mold as a result of exposure to mold while others don’t. ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Dr. Shippy also explains just what the toxins that mold produces are and the damage they can cause us. Once you know there’s mold in your environment, there are actionable steps you can take from repairing water damage to lab testing to detoxifying.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Have you had to deal with toxic mold exposure?

Welcome So many new followers I thought it was time to stop and do a quick introduction I'm Kathryn- a wife, mom and sometimes crazy neurotic in both roles! I'm married to my college sweetheart and we were blessed with 2 crazy kiddos- our youngest was 8 weeks premature and I'm a big supporter of all things preemie, NICU, PTSD and mom of boys related! We recently welcomed a cute little fluff ball to our family- our yellow lab named Hudson and he’s just so dang cute my page has lots of Hudson 😍🐾 My health has been my biggest roller coaster- I've battled PTSD ( thanks Me Parker!) bouts of anxiety and depression, recovering from adrenal fatigue, hormone imbalance and a pesky vitamin D deficiency that no one could figure out until they diagnosed me with MTHFR and started supplementing! I’m a huge believer in holistic healing since traditional medicine has failed me. I recently started working with an AMAZING holistic nutritionist and am starting down the path to a paleo lifestyle. Oh and I'm a recovering perfectionist/ people pleaser - embracing the present over perfect mindset, my faith as a catholic ✝️ and giving myself a lot of GRACE! I’ve recently discovered and fallen in love with yoga, essential oils and meditation! 🕉 Whatever brought you to my little page THANK YOU for following. 😉 What things do you like to see on this little page of mine?

I’ve been talking a lot about MTHFR lately! It’s somewhat of a hot topic in the natural medicine world lately People with the MTHFR gene SNP, or mutation, typically do not rid their bodies of toxins as easily as those who do not have it. This causes a whole host of health problems So what about those toxins? We’ve talked about diet and supplementation, and if you manage those two things correctly, your body will be more efficient at detoxifying What comes next? First and foremost, clean up your lifestyle! When you run out of your standard toxic bathroom cleaner, replace it with a toxin free version. Do the same with ALL household products and ALL personal care and beauty products It would be costly to do this all at once, of course, so give yourself permission to do this over time, as your old products run out If you don’t have the MTHFR gene SNP, does this mean you don’t have to pay attention to these things? No, it doesn’t! We all have some gene SNPs that make us prone to health issues, and toxins in your food and household items can absolutely cause those genetic mutations to act out and make us sick I have loads of ideas for you, if you need them.

Keto hot chocolate I had after peanuts yesterday. It was fabulous. I felt even worse last night. Exhausted with an attitude problem😂 I'm going to skip my B Complex today and see if it at least helps with my mood. Sometimes the B vitamins make me angry 🤷‍♀️ I don't know why but a google search showed it is common. It could be the methylated folate. It is the only kind my body can process due to the specific mthfr gene mutation I have. However, I guess a lot of people have trouble with it. I had some gluten free crackers last night. My stomach just felt awful after dinner. I made pork ribs and they weren't right to me. The smell of them was even making me nauseous after I ate them. The crackers calmed my stomach and didn't kick me out of ketosis. Yes, I know. My heart beats differently in than out and also when my body is switching between using glucose for energy or fat. So don't come at me with "being kicked out of ketosis isn't a thing" or "it isn't possible to know" because I know my body✌ Feeling better today so far but I haven't taken my supplements yet either.

Radishes are a standout cruciferous vegetable that deserves its own time in the limelight. If the term “food as medicine” applies to anything, it applies to radishes. And what makes radishes unique from other crucifers is that they have two components, defined by different characteristics. To begin with, there is the root of the radish plant—what we think of as the radish itself. Overall, radishes are an immune-system replenisher. When consumed, the sulfur in radishes repels any type of pathogen and acts as a wormicide to kill off intestinal worms and other parasites. The organosulfides in radishes also keep arteries and veins clean, creating a protective barrier in blood vessels so plaque doesn’t adhere to their linings. Radishes are incredible heart food, excellent for helping to prevent heart disease and other cardiovascular issues in part by increasing good cholesterol and lowering bad cholesterol. Meanwhile, the skin of the radish repels virtually every type of cancer, which makes these little root vegetables a go-to food for helping to prevent the disease. And we can’t forget that radishes are very restorative for the kidney, liver, pancreas, and spleen. Then there are the radish greens—one of the most healing foods possible, and they’re thrown away. These leaves of the radish are the second most powerful prebiotic there is (next to wild blueberries). Radish greens hold a plethora of nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytochemicals, and cancer-fighting alkaloids, plus the greens possess antibacterial and antiviral properties. They repair the colon and other parts of the intestinal tract that have lost the ability to absorb nutrients. Radish greens’ nutrition absorbs into the most dysfunctional digestive tracts, assimilating better than any other food, thanks to their high enzymatic profile; the greens contain various enzymes that are not yet documented by scientific study and that allow for the uptake of nutrients. For what they offer, radish greens are really a wild food, even when cultivated in your garden bed or a farmer’s field. Radish greens help remove all of the Unforgiving Four (radiation, DDT, viruses, and heavy metals) fro

NUTRITION TIP OF THE DAY!🥤ADD. MORE. PROTEIN.🥤 We should all be getting almost 1g per pound we weigh in protein, EVERY SINGLE DAY! For most of us that means a little help from protein supplements. However90% of the supplemental options available to us are total junk! GET THIS: (I’m about to blow your mind 🤯) Over 95% of proteinpowders on the market contain artificialsweeteners (namely Sucralose, Acesulfame Potassium and Aspartame). Seriously?! 🤦🏻‍♀️ YES! These artificial sweeteners destroy a large majority of your good gutbacteria, have known carcinogens in them, can spike blood sugars, and cause unwanted weightgain.🙅🏻‍♀️ On top of that, 86% of protein powders contain GMO’s, 82% contain growthhormones and 53% contain soy or other common allergens. ✋🏼 Adding in a high-quality, CLEANproteinshake each day can help satisfy and controlhunger, help with weight management, and help support the growth of leanmuscle mass (which in turn, helps your body burnfat and calories at a higher rate)! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 That’s why I’m so excited about the one I found! 💃🏼👏🏼 I’ve become an ingredient snob so I’ll always be careful to only recommend products that I’ve researched thoroughly and seen to be beneficial, personally. Not only is it free of all artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, soy, gluten and GMOs, but it is packed full of hormone-free protein, 24 vitamins and minerals that are easily absorbed by the body, contains prebiotics to feed the good bacteria in our gut, digestiveenzymes to help our tummy break down the protein properly, lecithin (from sunflower oil) for brain health AND, it contains METHYLFOLATE which is extremely important for those with the MTHFR gene mutation (it’s estimated that 1 out of every 2 people have this mutation) where folate and folic acid are not properly processed by the body and, instead, become TOXIC! Many clean proteins will STILL contain folate or folic acid so, finding one that is methylated is INCREDIBLE!🙌🏼 We've got two delicious flavors of Lean WheyProtein AND a Vegetarian option for those that don’t do dairy. ❤️ I have to admit, my obsession with this yummy good for you protein drink is real 😂 wheybetter plexuslean

Don’t let that girl’s excitement fool you. She snoozed a million times. Only jumped out of bed because she didn’t want her husband to catch her going back to sleep after she promised she was awake. Oh yeah and she’s only still standing because of that sparkly yellow drink that gives her ALL.THE.ENERGY when she needs it most Some days it’s habit. Getting up and getting moving is just what we do. Other days, we have to dig deep and remember the reason we are staying consistent. We can’t look to anyone else we have to dig deep IN OURSELVES for that motivation to stay the course So ladies, moms, my IG besties😉 what is the real reason you need to join me?

PALEO CHOCOLATE BIRTHDAY CAKE ~ 🎂🎂🎂 Yep, I made my own glutenfreedairyfree b-day cakelit the candles and had a piece for LUNCH with my three year old and washed it down with a protein shake.🥤🥳🍰👏🏻 . Recipe: theloopywhisk . It was just a bit drier than I’d hoped for so I may have over-baked it. The frosting however is AMAZZZING.😍 And super healthy! It makes the cake 3/4 c. Cocoa 🍫 2 medium AVOCADOS 🥑🥑 1/2 c. Maple Syrup 🍯 { I added +3 Tablespoons} . My oldest is picky when it comes to healthy stuff and didn’t pick up on the Avo!🤫 I love baking and this was super fun to make I’m also celebrating today 🙌🏻 . At my PT appt, she had me try the pink 2 lb weights for an exercise to see how I did. {If you don’t know the back story, I messed myself up pretty badly early December and have been unable to lift upper body for months now. It’s been KILLING me to watch all the muscle I’d worked so hard to gain, fade away. I had to cut back on lower body as well.} So today felt like a huge milestone and the faintest glimmer of hope that I’m one step closer to lifting again! This time - excellent form, chin TUCKED.✔️✔️ . Seriously. I’m gonna cry the first time I get to lift for real. It felt odd even holding those tiny weights today.😭 . Soooocheers to being on the right path!🤞🏻 . If you want the cake recipe, you can find it on Pinterest - or shoot me a message Happy Thursday!🎉

I will be going LIVE tomorrow with dr.bryant at 5pm PST to talk about MTHFR - what it is, how it impacts our health, how it influences pregnancy/fertility and ways to optimize the function of MTHFR. A lot, I know! 🤓 MTHFR can be an overwhelming topic (one I am constantly learning more about!) so I definitely encourage you to tune in. If you don’t have any idea what MTHFR is and if it is even impacting your health - even more reason to check out our conversation! 👂🏼 A little run down here: MTHFR is an enzyme that codes for adding a methyl group (re: make active) onto folate, a B vitamin that is foundational to our DNA, RNA, red and white blood cells and crucial in big transitional times in our bodies, like pregnancy, infancy and adolescence. As a part of DNA, folate is a vital nutrient for nearly all of our cells. 😳 It is postulated that at least 70% of humans today have a variation in the function of at least one of their MTHFR enzymes which could impair the function of folate throughout the body. 🌱 If you have any burning questions about MTHFR post them below and I’ll try to address them!

Ok, this Unprocessed Mama is so happy right now! I finally found an inexpensive toddler vitamin that I approve of. I bought it because of the specific form of folate (5-MTHF) and the methylated form of B12, but everything else is pretty good as well. For those with the MTHFR genetic mutation, finding a quality supplement with methylated B vitamins is a struggle. These will last baby "G" about 2 months and only cost $17! And he ate it without any issues and said it tasted good!

I just had a phone consult with my RI office in Chicago. We discussed recent immune labs which showed NK activity is slightly elevated even while on Prednisone. Cytokine results weren't back yet. There's a possibility we may add Plaquenil in addition to the Prednisone. I'll have repeat labs done for AMH, LH etc. as it's been a while since we've checked those. I'm slightly nervous to see how much lower my AMH is now than it was 2 years ago. 😬 We also discussed the possibility of doing a couple medicated cycles with my local OB. After 2 years of low key "trying/not obsessing" and no treatments, it felt odd to be talking to her again in detail about everything. AndI started to get tearful when I mentioned that it took awhile to get over our IVF loss. Some days it's still so surreal that I'm 38 years old and this is my life. 😏 Sonow we wait to see if this cycle is a bust as usual and decide if we'll do a medicated cycle next. 🤷‍♀️ 🍍 infertility pregnancyloss recurrentmiscarriage rainbowbaby miscarriageawareness infertilityawareness infertilitysupport miscarriagesupport ttc ttccommunity infertilitycommunity ttcwarrior infertilitywarrior miscarriage mthfr hashimotosdisease factorvleiden reproductiveimmunology iui ivf ectopicpregnancy recurrentpregnancyloss

We hear a lot about living a balanced life or eating a balanced diet. But what does that even mean? It always drove me mad hearing that. I wanted to know EXACTLY what it meant. How should I spend my day? How should I live my life? What should I eat? How much should I eat? Give me an EXACT manual so I do it RIGHT. I wanted to be a good student and check off every box and arrive at the destination. I wanted to be a people pleaser and PERFECT (since that exists and all).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But here's the thing no one could spell out for me when I asked them what living a balanced life meantBalance is INDIVIDUAL, it's not a one size fits all, so no one can just give it to you or tell you how to get it. You have to decide what your definition of balance is. Try some things out, do some things differently, make some changes, and check in with yourself. It's something you will taste, something you will feel, a knowing, a peace, an intuitive feeling, a sigh of relief that fills your body, and whatever feels true to you. And it will constantly evolve and be adjusted to fit your life and your needs.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My idea of being balanced changes all the time depending on what's going on in my life.

MTHFR. It is definitely a mother f *er for those who have it…. But that isn’t what this stands for.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Genetic SNP’s (single nucleotide polymorphism), or gene variations, are small mutations in a gene that may lead to inefficient functions of the body. The MTHFR gene provides instructions for making the enzyme methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase, which plays a role in producing certain amino acids (the building blocks of protein) and converting homocysteine into methionine. But why does this matter? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because it is estimated that 40% of the population carries a genetic mutation in this gene, specifically C677T and A1298C, which may cause negative symptoms such as depression, anxiety, miscarriage, cardiovascular disease, chronic fatigue, migraines, and many other disorders. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because we carry 2 copies of each gene (one from our mother and one from our father) it is possible that someone with an MTHFR variant may have just one copy effected (heterozygous) or both copies effected (homozygous), the later of which would lead to greater health complications. MTHFR may cause high homocysteine levels in the blood as well as deficient levels of B vitamins and other important essential nutrients. Someone with MTHFR may be unable to convert folic acid (a synthetic form of vitamin B9) into folate (the active form). This could be a big problem, especially for a woman trying to conceive and taking a prenatal vitamin containing folic acid. Folic acid could potentially accumulate in the body like a toxin and leave her folate deficient, which could result in miscarriage or neural tube defects. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But don’t panic! Discovering your status and working with a Functional Medicine provider who knows how to support MTHFR variations and methylation will help you avoid nutritional deficiencies and lessen the negative symptoms of this genetic mutation.

I’ve got 99 problems and repairing my gut health helped 85 of them! You guys I had no clue about the gut brain connection, that sugar cravings, tossing and turning to sleep, mood issues, hormone issues, skin issues, low energy and stomach pains were all tied to gut health These products have changed EVERYTHING for me, not as a magic potion that lets you eat what you want and still feel amazing (that’s hocus pocus and not real health 🤪), But as a tool in my toolbox to help my mind and body rebalance to move more, eat better, and be in a better mental space. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Which one of these poor symptoms are you experiencing with me? letsgettotherootfeelbetter

A great starting point for people with MTHFR! Decreasing toxicity in our environments and diets, eating organic, getting enough rest, hydrating, sleeping at least 8 hours, moving for 20 min everyday, and supporting your body with high quality supplements will change your gene expression. Your genes are not your destiny and knowledge is power! 💪🏼🙌🏼😊 mthfrliving mthfr mthfrawareness mthfrwarriors mthfrpregnancy healthypregnancy healthybabies healthykids healthyparents healthyfamilies methylation methylcobalamin methylfolate detox wellness healthylivingtips

I’m doing the DUTCH tomorrow - an advanced test for reproductive and adrenal hormones the next step forward in my healing journey. Recovering from adrenal fatigue is, I have discovered, not the fast sprint I expected it to be when I was first diagnosed 🏃‍♀️ . Add in layers of histamine issues, pyroles, MTHFR, a couple of relatively well established gut parasites and a good dose of persistent Candida, and the path to wellness is anything but a clear or direct one 🧗‍♀️ . I am grateful to be accompanied by an incredible Naturopath julesgallowayhealth on this journey to rediscover my health. Piece by piece, almost like an enormous and intricate jigsaw puzzle of the body and mind, a picture is emerging. It is a most fascinating and colourful collage, one layer at a time 🙏 . I am feeling both excited and curious about what this next step may reveal no doubt another insightful layer is about to be added to this growing picture of my health and wellbeing 🌟

My gosh friends, it has been a hot minute. 2019 started off with a bang and hasn’t stopped since! The first quarter of this year has flown by—it was just January yesterday and here we are nearing the end of March! Life has a way of prioritizing what is most important to us. With prioritizing, I have been a bit MIA posting regularly and have fallen more on posting within the InstaStories on a consistent basis. Consistency has been a huge trend for this quarter and frankly, it needed to happen. This has been the most consistent season of life that I haven’t experienced many flare-ups. My nutrition has been on-point as well as my sleep (for the most part—we all know I need my 9 hours of sleep to be a nice human being). My adrenal fatigue has its days but it is still something that I am working to control. We moved into our new house, major praises! We have been eyeball deep in wedding planning and working towards making our house a home. I have been flourishing in my career and wake up everyday so thankful that I get to work where I work and in a field that I have purpose in. My honey has been receiving promotion after promotion—if ya need a great weather guy, I guess I’ll share him! The man deserves a little humble brag. Remember when my health took me out of workforce for over 6 months? Yeah, me too. No more! We aren’t living over here, we are thriving over here! Here’s to working on being more consistent with each of you!
