What about me & the Tillamook cheese (a business client) and Crater Lake Blue. I miss my diary quite a bit - just teasing, but I do miss my dairy. I've narrowed it to casein with me. I've talked to a bunch of cheese mongers over the years. Goat & Sheep casiens are smaller, thus easier to digest. Just the past 4-6 weeks I have been able to tollerate about 1/4cup of goat yogurt every morning with little reactive issues. That is after about 6 years dairy free. Bob
I resigned my high pay, forest service job in Tahoe and moved back to Oregon. Medford (SW corner - bot not on the coast).
My health - - well I boasted being at 60% a while back (while asleep at the wheel with my government job).
After moving two households and staring up my appraisal business again, I'd say 40-50% operational in more like it.
Found a great internest, educated and willing to work with me. After 3 months finally got my insturance fiasco straightened out with the Forest Service. Had a mello - as planned - holiday.
Best things so far: Food 4 Less (you must be a NW USA resident) in Medford has a fantastic gluten-free & food allergy section. For those that know, this is pretty amazing. I can be Kinninknick, local gluten-free breads and goodies, Glutino, & more. I actually disocvered an Oreo cookie (yellow package) that is actually really good crunchy - not tooth breaking (now all I ned to do is be able to add dairy). F4Less also has organic wines, organic meats, organic produce & local produce.
Then, I found a fish monger. The best yest - he is located in a small trashy looking place, but has fresh (really fresh) fish 3 times a week and essentially wholesale prices ($5-10/lb less than I paid at lake tahoe - but what can you expect).
GIG has two gluten-free camps also. One on Vashon Island outside Seattle, WA. The other is upper mid-west? - lakes area? Cynthia is always looking for volunteer cooks (I've done it twice - it's really nice to see the reaction when you say YES, you may eat that). My kids (15,17) just got home from 10 days of fun in the sun at GIG camp. They've been going for the past 7-8 years. Bob
Could one of you (Rachel??) please explain what ART is, or a link. I'd really appreciate it. You can PM me, or reply here - I'll check (assuming you don't generate 3 pages of forum overnight ). OK - I give, I'll check even if you generate a few pages :)
ART is suggested as 1 of 3 alternative therapies for tendenosis.
Short summary: gluten-free-8 years now, DF/Egg/Nightshade free. Familial history of celiac, horrible sleep -drugs only & body pain (too many years of this now). Endo/Colon negative except for some off bacteria. For now negative IGenex Lyme and I'd like to deal with my shoulder pain - non invasive and no more drugs.
I'm about to move back to Oregon, thus I'm stalling until I get locationally stable to start anything long term. Then I'll start looking for a good practitioner and move forward with figuring things out further.
Are the Herx a regular thing (like menstruation), or are they what/when/wherever? I haven't recognized any set pattern of higher distress - versus - lower distress over the past 10+ years (which includes food/feelings diary for over two years). I got the 24 day cycle thing from the OMG thread, but that doesn't appear to fit me/my body.
It still sucks being patient, or The patient, but it is fascinating to learn about my body. Bob
I'm still Yippee. One thing off the list - for now, in the process of eliminating things and getting to the bottom of what makes me go around. Time to make an appt. with the Internest (the king of referrals) and go to the next step of tests. My imune system was shot, really shot about 7-9 years ago. On the surface - - it's pretty good right now - - but that might not mean anything more than I'm able to tread water now -rather than drowning. Bob
Tick, tick, tick -oops, I mean wait, wait, wait. It'll probably be another week and half for me to get my test results since I'll be out the later half of next week.
Sara - If no lyme, you might think about cutting nightshades (the rest of the favorite foods ). Tomato, potato, peppers, eggplant. They have a correlation with arthritis type joint pain. You just may have some additional food sensitivities that have taken advantage of your system. Bob
