Am I now vegetarian?

So, for the last nine weeks I have been trying to eat (mostly) vegetarian. I say mostly because there were a few times where I went out for food and I broke it... but I haven’t physically bought any meat for me too cook at home (if that makes sense). 




I did this mostly for my health to see if I could see a reduction in symptoms especially in my PoTS (https://www.niamhslife.com/2018/10/october-is-dysautonomia-awareness-month.html). ‘Deliciously Ella’ definitely inspired this after she went plant based for her PoTS and noticed a difference.



Was I going to faint less? Would my blood pressure stay a bit more stable? Would my heart rates be less excessive? Let’s see...



I have actually noticed a huge difference. I was a bit skeptical but I have been feeling a lot better, I have noticed I have been getting a lot less blood pressure swings, I am not being sick (like I was) and I have actually fainted a lot less.



I have even noticed a difference between the days where I have eaten meat: I would be a lot more bloated, drowsy and dizzy.



So, am I going to keep it up? Most definitely, yes as much as I can, I think the improvement is too big to ignore and I feel healthier.



As a little disclaimer I am in no way an expert in this and do not take this as advice as something you should do unless you have spoken to a doctor about it first because every case is different.



Love, Niamh xx
