      Hi IrishHeart!!

      Thank you soo much for all your help! you have given me hope and invaluable advice over the past few months your really sweet BTW My tests all came back NEG I still aint got my hair mineral analysis results back (due next week!)my doctor is almost convinced I suffer from CFS but I have told him I disagree as I know my problem stems in the GUT!!

      I have also decided to ignore my weight loss and concentrate on healing my gut which in theory should calm my immune system down! My diet at the moment is very restricted i eat just boiled chicken and rice trying to ensure I eat small meals thoughout the day SLOWLY I have a terrible habbit of eating food wayy too fast it literally doesnt touch the sides which must be causing my digestive system so much stress! an I took your advice an ditched my old probiotics which contained bizarre ingrediants such as sulfites and gelatine and replaced them with the new ones mentioned above which are way more powerful and more importantly more natural! I feel about 60% which is not amazing but its a start considering the past few months ive wanted to jump off a bridge its been that bad! lol

      How are you anyway? you recovering from the snickers incident?

      Eating Too Fast And Not Chewing Food
      Hi everyone,

      Just been reflecting on my childhood and eating habits. As a child i used to eat large meals really fast in like 5 mins!!! My mum said i used to chew my food about 3 times at most!! I ate really large amounts of everything all the left overs and ask for more when I had finished an was always really skinny as a child. If i have adopted these eating habits from childhood ( almost 20 years) how much damage could i have potentially caused as my digestive system must have been under soo much stress? ( i had insomnia since I was 6 years old!) all my friends say i still eat really fast now even tho im trying to slow down!! Does anyone else eat fats and not chew food thoroughly? and could this have caused this mess im in now?

      Thanks everyone

      Thank you so much for the useful information! I admire your resiliance and determination and my heart goes out to you in finding the cause of this debilitating problem I have so many dreams of living healthy and enjoying life and it is upseting that i divert all my energy into overcoming my health problems! I have been supplementing calcium vitamin b complex magnesium vitamin D im weary of them as they contain maltodextrin or dextrose at the moment im not supplementing Iron which i will start doing from tomorrow and im going to do a full clear out of my kitchen knifes, forks pans are all getting replaced! Have you not considered heavy metal poisoning for your problems? all my research is leading to Stress, Candida Leaky Gut or heavy metal poisoning all of which im going to addressing one by one until ive found what is causing my body so much distress!

      Brain Fog
      Any help would be great!

      Ive eliminated gluten,soy, eggs, citric acid, all grains, white potatoes , chicken , pork and beef, and all fish!

      I have horrible habbit of not chewing my food and eating extremly fast which i have been working on and learning slowly to take my time when i eat.

      I eat all veg and rare meats and try to not eat things with sugar in them!

      However, my brain fog is still with me 24/7 in the past 6 months ive had one day of clarity!

      the only supplement i take is L -Glutamine to help my leaky gut repair!

      could anyone advise me on the next step i should take to remove this brain fog!

      Hope This Helps :)
      Hi everyone thought id share with everyone my good news!I have grown up with chronic insomnia roughly from the age of 6 I was always fatigued and tired and struggled throughout my childhood and then finally the breakthrough came at the age of 21 (so thats 15 years of sleeping 1 hour a night!) I decided to take an IgG food intolerance test and shown I had positive reactions for gliaden and cows milk! and now after a long wait, (about 4 months in fact!) Im officially no longer an Insomniac, i started sleeping it still takes me an hour to drop off but when i do i sleep through the night.

      I do just sit there and think to myself I have been ill my whole life due to food!! its scary to think

      Unfortunatly, I still have Brain fog which i can not for the life of me get rid of!

      hope this gives people hope

      Can Not Gain Weight Need Advice :(
      I have been gluten free now for 6 months since my diagnosis in Aug 10 I have discovered im reactent to gluten, eggs, milk, oranges, Soy, and sugar. Shopping is so hard for me here in the uk, eating 'fast snacks' while out the house is near impossibleand so frustrating when im so hungary. My weight has been constantly declining before my diagnosis I was a healthy figure weighing 12 stone and now I look a frail figure weighing 10 stone.I take Vegan multivitamins and omega 3 + 6 tablets.

      Has anyone overcome weight loss issues? If so could you give me some advice on how to put on the pounds!

      Thank you James
