Hi! I am 22-years-old and currently recovering from anorexia. I’m 5’6’’ and my weight is up from the 90s range to 115. I’m still obviously recovering. I haven’t had my period since January 14, 2013. This is a really long time. I would like to know how to treat this through Chinese Medicine. I had seen an acupuncturist when my weight was still low and she told me that I’m qi and blood deficient. I just got a Chinese medicine-oriented massage where I had intense, almost unbearable pain in my UB and KD meridians.
I have celiac’s disease as well, so I’m trying to nourish myself with foods that don’t make me uncomfortable. I don’t eat grains, legumes, or nightshades to avoid joint pain. I drink around 4 cups of grass-fed bone broth daily (breakfast and dinner), have hearings of green veggies, around 8 tablespoons of liquid fats (coconut oil predominatly), and some sort of grass-fed/pasture-raised animal meat. I also eat organ meats weekly, either heart or liver. The bulk of my carbs come from sweet potatoes, parsnips, or carrots that I eat with dinner. I also eat 100% cacao raw chocolate and a lot of it usually as an afternoon snack. I crave it and I don’t know why (magnesium?) but I’m guessing this is not good with caffeine aggravation or joint pain. I used to not eat nuts often but started eating them again (soaked and sprouted). I also have fermented foods daily along with probiotics of 20 billion per capsule.
Also, I have VERY low blood pressure of around 80s/50s and crave immense amount of salt.
I really want to menstruate again. I apologize for the lengthy e-mail but would really, really appreciate guidance!
