I am a 24 year old female. Over the past two to three years, I’ve have been developing baldness. In the past year, I’ve had high cholesterol, a deep vein thrombosis, and have been developing acne, etc., etc.
I do think all this is stress related, but I can’t reduce this stress because I think it’s natural. Any ideas?
I am assuming you’ve seen a medical doctor, since you know the status of your cholesterol. If this is an erroneous assumption, the obvious advice is to schedule a check up. But if you have been through all that and determined that stress is the root cause of your problems, then it’s time to address the level of stress in your life, and saying “I can’t” isn’t going to help.
I agree that stress is natural. So is snow! But this doesn’t mean you stand outside in it, until you are buried alive and frozen like a Popsicle. You’re supposed to walk inside, eh? And this is where you are at.
So what do you think? Are you going to act now, with the snow piled up to your hips – or is that not extreme enough for you, Ms Scorpio? What are you really doing here? What are seeking by allowing your life to become so out of control? An edge?
You know what? I’m not really worried about you. Your chart is very powerful. And when you’ve had enough of this experience, I expect you will act decisively to change your conditions.
If it were me, I would do this today. But that is because I am vain and like my hair. 😉
Well said, Elsa.
Scorp, I wanted to share this link with you. Weston A. Price Foundation on cholesterol
There are other articles about cholesterol. I’m posting it here for you because this info makes a lot of sense, yet it doesn’t get wide circulation. And because I care. 🙂
Molly, I think Weston Price is completely where it’s at as far as nutrition goes. The more closely I can come to following WP ideals about diet, the better I feel.
Two of these symptoms can be caused by hypothyroidism – baldness and high cholesterol. This is much more common in women than in men. Here’s a fuller list of symptoms:
Very well said. I have a Scorp sis the same…who is stuck in her own extreme rut…I am not worried about her either, though I cannot understand her patience for unhappiness…!?
I agree with catnmus, I think there may be something more than stress there. If your G.P. can’t pinpoint it INSIST they send you to an endochrinology specialist, (you’re a scorp, so you know how to impose your will) and don’t just assume that a) You’re young, therefore your body is unbreakable and b) You’re clever, therefore you can diagnose and treat yourself.
Doctors are smug and patronising FOR A REASON: they went to uni for years to learn about the body. And when you go, take ALL of your symptoms, even the ones you don’t think are related because when you focus on only one or two (that are the most troubling to you) that is what makes conditions hard for them to diagnose.
Also have your doc check for PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome) stuff. It also follows a similar profile to the symptoms you listed. I’m getting it checked out for myself because I have some similar issues. Do you also skip periods or have weird periods? Good to get a full metabolic/hormonal, etc profile.
