I will give you some reasons why I think I’m actually blessed to have a food intolerance. Also, I will also give you some tips on how to have a positive attitude about food allergies, and maybe find a new opportunity in it.
Why Having A Food Intolerance Can Be A Blessing And Opportunity For You.
Three years ago I was in the hospital for a week because I felt burned out and had headaches all the time. I also suffered from rapid heartbeat, little did I know all of this was caused by my food intolerance (histamine intolerance). Of course, the doctors did all the check-ups available and diagnosed me with stress related tachycardia. As a result, they gave me pills to calm me down and beta blockers for my heart. I didn’t take any of these since I wasn’t convinced that this was the root of my health problems.
I Did My Own Research
Back home, I started researching. I bought books and searched the internet. After some time Google had successfully convinced me, that I had cancer. I was on a point where I would believe anything. There were just too many sources of information and nothing really brought me anywhere. In short, the doctors couldn’t help me, books couldn’t help me and the internet couldn’t help me either (at least for now).
I finally came to the conclusion that no one could help me except for me. I realized that I had to change. I had to become more healthy, I had to work on my character, I had to lose weight, I had to exercise and most noteworthy, I had to see my symptoms as a new opportunity for change. So the first thing I did the next morning, was going to the gym and work out. I started going there three times a week and I’m still doing it today, three years later. It was one of the key factors which helped me getting my life back on track.
I Changed My Diet
Soon, I started to change my diet. I switched from high fat, high carb, high sugar to a more healthy plant-based diet (with some exceptions). Consequently, I was beginning to feel much better. Finally, the symptoms related to my histamine intolerance had almost disappeared. As a result, I was losing weight, lots of it actually. But the best thing was that I was getting happier day after day.
Why Am I Blessed to have a food intolerance?
My histamine intolerance changed my life and I feel blessed for that. Unfortunately, I lost the ability to eat whatever I want but gained the ability to enjoy life and to do things I wasn’t able to do before. I lost 40kg, I learned how to cook and I finally feel like I’m in control of my life. These are the main reasons why I feel blessed (or thankful) to have a histamine intolerance.
