Why I Follow The Medical Medium Protocol // Healing My Struggles

I have just finished a recipe week. A recipe week that was vegan but also follows the Medical Medium protocol. I have been asked a few times why I follow the protocol so I thought I would talk a bit more about it here. This protocol has drastically improved my life and my health. 

Everything I eat on this protocol is fruit and vegetables, nuts, seeds, coconut and herbs. That is it. And I have been following this protocol for one and a half almost two years now. I'll definitely share more of what I eat in a day as well as the foods I don't eat + why that is. 

The reason why I decided to try this out was because I was dealing with some physical as well as mental things that caused me pain and kept me from living a 'normal life'.

And following this protocol has.. healed me in ways I could have never imagined I would ever heal again. I am free of things I was told to just learn to live with, I am free of things I have been struggling with for many years.

So what has changed since following this protocol? 

I no longer have daily headaches. This was something I was told to live with which broke my heart because it is something that can keep you from doing a lot of things simply because you just cannot do it. It is one of the most freeing things that has happened since following this lifestyle. 

I have not had a migrane attack since following this protocol. I used to get severe migraine attacks every six months with some auras that made me fear the attacks. It has almost been two years and I have not has an attack since. 

The auras include: my left hand going numb, my legs going numb meaning I couldn't walk, my tongue and lips would be swollen and I would not be able to talk. And the places that would go numb would tingle and the control would be gone. 

PMS with extreme mood swings and when I say extreme, I mean extreme. I was a horrible person to be around and I am so glad that this is behind me. Today, I have noticed that when I have my period I am quick to get irritated but it is no where near as bad as it used to be. Today it helps to count to 10. 

It has been forever since I have had ear pain and inflammation (incl. otitis media) along with catarrh. It has been years since I have experienced severe ear pain but the protocol has helped with the random ear pain I would experience before. Now the only time I experience ear pain is on a plane. 

I no longer feel restlessness, fatigue, dizziness and insomnia is gone. These were also some of the things I was struggling with on a regular basis and the fact that I no longer experience this has improved my life so much! My sleep is not completely normal, it takes some time before I fall asleep but unlike before I get all the way down into the deep sleep state. 

I no longer have trouble breathing. I used to have a hard time taking a deep breathe and sometimes I would find myself holding my breath which is something I no longer deal with. 

My face acne is almost gone and the acne on the rest of my body has improved a lot and that is something I have been struggling with for many years so it is incredibly nice to see improvements! You can see before and after photos right here. 

Some 'smaller' changes: 
  • I have almost no mucus in my nose and throat - with the exception of being exposed to air condition and the pollen season.
  • I not longer sneeze more than 20 times every morning - with the exception of pollen season. 
  • I no longer have thin hair and nails and my skin is no longer dry and rough (elbows, heels, hands and lips). 
  • I no longer experience gum pain, frequent nosebleeds or urinary tract infections (UTIs). 
  • My throat is no longer sore and my nose no longer burns on a regular basis. 
  • The keratosis pilaris on my arms have healed 
  • My digestion has improved by miles
These are the changes I have noticed during the time I have been on this protocol and I am sure there are a lot of changes inside that I do not notice. If you have any questions or there's something you would like me to dive more into them please let me know.
