DOCUMENTARY FIND: FORKS OVER KNIVES

21 Nov

FORKS OVER KNIVES is a documentary I recently came across, while trying to find better ways of getting protein, because I do eat meat, but not enough to be considered “enough protein” … or so I THOUGHT until I watched this documentary. Growing up in America as apart of a generation who didn’t know any better, I never even considered that at one point live stock used to be scarce and only what rich people ate; which left the poor and middle classes to be on a diet of mostly nuts, fruit and vegetables and NOT the newly ordained”congress” vegetable known as Pizza; but you get my point.

Health! Living with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) part 1

18 Jul

As with every published article on Jaded Press, we try to include links within the post – for you to have the most resources possible to get even more information.

First and foremost I would like to say writing this article is really difficult for me because I was in denial that I had PCOS and this is the first time I am going public with it… so bare with me.

On my last visit to my OB-gyn, all the tests went exactly as they did for the previous 9 months, the final results were good and I was excited to get this baby OUT! Because it seems as though my face, logs, ankles, body swelled up into a balloon and I just couldn’t hold all that weight anymore. So I went in to deliver at 5:00am on Oct 24th. Once I got to the hospital they checked my vitals, urine and the baby’s heart rate… I wasn’t too worried since everything looked good the evening before… but unfortunately that’s when sh*t hit the fan. All of a sudden there were large amounts of protein in my urine and my blood pressure was sky high – I developed a sudden onset of Serve Preeclampsia “over night”. Continue reading
