I had an issue with a swollen gland (groin) and started taking unflavored gelatin - I just drink it in a cup of hot green tea with honey and lemon. It gave me energy and the gland issue went away. Last Sunday I ate some steamed crabs(no beer) and when I got home had an immediate back ache then the normal achy stuff and then the gland again. have been doing Epsom baths to remove the toxins and have a massage scheduled next week-she does an easy immune system massage that helps a lot.
I am so glad you are doing well and I do agree with the dr. that gluten does damage the heart. I received something this week that I have tried to copy to you all--( could not figure out the wayy to do it) --basically the article was saying that the Roman soldiers punished their soldiers by depriving them of wheat. It stated how the wheat is so addictive that it causes withdrawals similar to herion and cocaine withdrawal.
The SCD'ers will agree about the sugar. I ate an overload of Sugar at Christmas and was quite under the weather with gluten like symptoms- I'm sure it put my resistance down.
Mamaw, I am getting back and looking forward to seeing what everyone has been up to! Hope you are well!
So far I have enjoyed the book. He has a good sense of humor and the info is in line with my thoughts on wheat. I know when I eat it my stomach bloats. My sister in law is on the diet and she has lost weight. Another friend lost weight and has held her weight and it takes away her arthritis. A girl at church also has been on the diet for a while and she also said he stomach vanished and she is sticking with it.
My little "celiac" group will be discussing it next week at the meeting.
With heart disease one of the diseases caused by gluten, I wanted to buy it as he is a cardiologist.
It stays fresh, I tell them just to keep it on warm overnight. They tell me everyone in the hospital comes by because it smells so good.
I have all size crockpots. If you are staying several days, I recommend that you take the large one. I usually carry it and supplies into the hospital in a box and leave the box there for them to carry it home and then I pick it up.
The broth is delicious. It is the basic SCD chicken soup recipe. whole chicken, onions, carrots, celery and parsley and filtered water.
