About a year and a half ago I was diagnosed with IBS and Adrenal Fatigue, and have been trying to find the best way to recover from it. I opted to focus on holistic care vs pumping drugs into my body. My doctors (PCP and holistic) conducted tests that indicated that my body did not process soy, dairy, wheat and corn. These foods contributed to my symptoms. So I eliminated those foods. In fact I eliminated grains all together and followed a mostly Paleo diet.
If there is one thing that running has taught me it’s to listen to my body. For a long time I “listened” for obvious injuries, completely oblivious to other quiet signals it was sending me. In hindsight I realize that my body has been telling me to slow down for the past two to three years.
