The Day I Disappeared (A.K.A. Nutritional Facts)

Hello Ladies,
My title may be a little misguiding but I thought it utterly appropriate for the subject of my newest post. To explain, I have recently been on this "kick" of taking lots and lots of vitamins and trying to find foods that will decrease the amount of little buggers on my oh-so-famous ovaries. Through research I have found a few "very" important foods to stay away from and vitamins to ingest regularly....or so Google says =] And let me tell you, after what feels like very thorough research I have nothing left to eat!
Disclaimer: I have not seen a doctor about these "natural" ways but I didnt talk to a pharmacist and she recommended a few of these things as well.

First off, we'll start with vitamins/herbs:
Vitamin B: " important for regulating the role of enzymes, proteins that regulate chemical reactions in the body and convert food to energy."

Vitamin D and Calcium together: "calcium is an important part of egg maturation and normal ovarian follicular development. For calcium to be absorbed properly in the body, you must take vitamin D. In addition, women with PCOS who have vitamin D deficiency have been shown to regain regular menstruation when taking vitamin D and calcium together."

Vitex (Chasteberry): " It is used for menstrual cycle irregularities, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), a more severe form of PMS called premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), and symptoms of menopause. It is also used for treating “lumpy” (fibrocystic) breasts, female infertility, preventing miscarriage in women with low levels of a hormone called progesterone, controlling bleeding and helping the body force out the placenta after childbirth, and increasing breast milk."
Read more:

Red Raspberry Leaf: " most popular of all fertility herbs. It is a well-known uterine tonic and is also quite high in calcium."
Read more:
Red Clovers: "very valuable to the uterus and its high protein content benefits the whole body. It's also quite high in calcium & magnesium, which relax the nervous system and help promote fertility. This herb also contains nearly every trace mineral needed by the glands. Daily use can help balance hormonal functioning."

This is where I get to the part of disappearing....
No High Fructose Corn Syrup
No White Flour
No Baked Goods
No Ceareal
No Processed Foods
No Fruit Drinks
Read more:

All of these delicious delights contain either way too much sugar or high fructose corn syrup which can essentially cause more little buggers because they elevate your blood sugar levels that your insulin doesn't know what to do with. This brings me back to my post title, I LIVE OFF OF FOODS WITH ALL THIS CRAP IN IT.....therefore I will disappear because of a lack of food. I don't know how I'm ever going to be able to pop one of those eggs out if I continue to eat the way I do (which I don't believe is too bad but if you look up a lot of your food, high fructose corn syrup is in freaking everything)! So ladies, I must say that my recent research has left me with a bad craving for mint cookies and cream ice cream and dagger eyes for my ovaries =] Oh and a little update, I started the herb Vitex (chasteberry) and I will let you know how that goes! As always ladies, remember that you're not the only one who cries until she laughs about her highly dysfunctional uterus =]
