I dont know if you have heard of Bell’s Palsy, I never had !
What started as wifey complaining of “aankh phadakna” and jokes followed citing I am going to have it… it increased, we thought to ignore but within 24 hours it seemed like her face was crooked, we eventually rushed to our family doc and she insisted we go to a Physican and that she suspected Facial nerve paralysis, she assured us it had nothing to do with diabetes and it was viral and most importantly she repeated quite a few times looking at us gaping that it was fully recoverable !!!!
Almost all the doctor’s which I knew and our Physician all calmed our nerves down that it was totally recoverable, just requires a few steroids, anti-virals and multi vitamins with regular Physiotherapy. So began the ordeal, thankfully wifey started showing signs of improvement after 1 week and now after 6 odd weeks almost no one can spot her Palsy, although still 95% recovered she has now stopped Physiotherapy and medicines both !
About last week or so I thought since so many steroids and antivirals have gone in maybe in her christmas vacation she should do some detox diet of sorts, searching on the net was slightly boring and difficult and I posted my request on FB and while Tara gave me a rather interesting suggestion, I bailed out… but hey our blogsphere is kind and I managed to get hold of our veri own Desi cook Sangeeta to plan a detox that was totally customised as per our Dosha !!!
I didn’t know Sangeeta was so much into the food stuff, it became clear that cooking being an interest and a hobby apart, she is quite good and knows a lot about food and when I say a lot I mean A LOT !
Actually I didn’t really want to go on a Detox diet as my taste buds are way too greedy, however, it was important I would do it to encourage wifey along the way and get all the med’s flushed out. Sangeetha was kind enough to not just make a diet plan to detox, she also took the pain to ask everyday what were our likes dislikes, what were the veggies, grains we could manage what we couldnt and whats more she even took the pain to bow to my WHIMS !!!
Sangeeta actually does specialize and pursues making Personalized Diet Plans for all those who you want a nice workable and personalised diet plan for themselves with weight loss targets or for diabetes friendly lifestyle or for a heart friendly plate So if you are looking for some discipline in your life and at the same time dont want to disappoint your taste buds just ping her !!!!
The best part of the diet plan was that it was filled with food that was delicious, infact most things for us were new and since I and wifey love experimenting and trying new things we loved it !!! Some of the dishes like Greenbeans stir fried and fruit chaat’s were favourites for everyone else at home who weren’t even on the Detox Plan !
Not only the guts were scrubbed and flushed they were even soothed and then made to top class ! By the end of the week we both felt lighter, better, cleaner and I even thought my skin was improving !!!! Lol I actually felt I was turning a bit GORA !!!! I am colour obsessed !!!! Whilst our goal was not at all to lose weight, I actually I just measured my weight today that I am 1.5 kgs lighter ! The best part of the diet was at no point was I hungry, infact at times it would seem like I am full do I really have to eat that !!!!
and now that I have totally Detoxed !!!! its time to Dive into a Chocolate icing !!!! I know… I can see Sangeeta #FACEPALM !!!! but well…. The ghost can’t stop eating all and sundry !!!!
