Good News/ Bad News

Posted by , 14 November 2013 · 1,057 views

I have just passed through several days of cramping, swelling, and gassiness. All of this as a result of nothing specific that I know of. Perhaps after 19 months gluten free it is just further recovery. Happily, I woke up today without the cramping and felt excellent since.

. Previous blood counts, over the passed 5 years, showed immature blood cells which tended to break easily. These have difficulty carrying oxygen. Late morning I received the happy news. Word came my blood count was normal. I am sure my cells are content with new higher levels of oxygen flowing to them.

I have been watching the gluten summit. Dr. Aristo Vojdani, PhD, MSc, MTV explained a need to forever avoid foods that you have antibodies to. In my case that means 49 or 60 foods I commonly eat. I have been eating many of them in rotation. He warns that your body remembers to make antibodies for these and you will react differently. Each exposure causes more and more antibodies to be made. Well, I hope this isn't true. I already asked my Functional Nurse about it and she thought he was right. Dr. V also gave much information about reacting differently to raw verses cooked product. Most labs use a raw product. It is possible I would not react to cooked products. Also, it is possible to not react to separate ingredients, but to react to them processed. I don't know what I will do for this for now. I am not sure whether the lab used raw or cooked foods, and if it makes a difference if the animal used was fed grain or just grass. I feel so much better and am having measurable recovery, so for now I believe I will continue as usual and see what happens next. I shall see if my bloated belly goes down again. Thus far a period of greatest belly bloat is followed by flattening to a new level. It is also precedes an increase in energy, but just now, I feel like this is as good as it gets!

Dr. V also offered reasons for how we react stronger when accidentally ingesting small quantities of gluten after going gluten free. He said that our memory cells crank out the antibodies in larger and larger numbers.

Chalk one more intolerance find up to the rotational diet. I think I may have found the reason for my recently bloating belly. We harvested pumpkins from our garden. I had both canned and dried them for future use. This evening I made sandwich bread with pumpkin flour for dinner. Just as I began to eat it, I felt my tummy cramps coming on. I think I can live without the pumpkin if I can just avoid the cramps!

Pumpkins were the problem, I am pretty sure by now.  I had a battle with some store bought cauliflower, and since I am continuing debloating and feeling reasonably well.  I am using SCD diet.  I guess for the most part that is what I was doing anyway since I am doing grain free.
