Discontinued Taking Tylenol, Want To Start Paleo
0

6 posts in this topic

Folks,

I thought I'd stopped ingesting anything with soy but I was terribly wrong. Somehow we ended up with a lot of soy products in our house. In addition, I found out Tylenol has stearic acid which is a derivative of soy. It also dawned on me that Tylenol is full of chemicals (duh!). This must be the benefit to having a clearer mind. I've been on a steady stream of over-the-counter painkillers for over 10 years :(. How could I have missed this?

Having been off of Tylenol for a few days now, I can tell you that it is disconcerting to actually feel everything that's going on in my body. My husband tells me that I am definitely improving. When I consider that, at one time, I was in bed most days, I would have to agree. The sensations in my body are distressing, but I know it's good to be fully aware of how our bodies react to things.

Yesterday I cooked with coconut oil and reacted to that. I've noticed in the past that my stomach feels funny after having coconut and I don't know if it's because it's a nut (I can't eat nuts) or if it's something else. Coconut doesn't make me break out like other nuts do so I thought maybe I could get away with eating it. It is causing neurological symptoms. Either that, or I'm just feeling the symptoms more now because I'm off of the Tylenol. Needless to say, today I'll be buying ghee.

Anyway, I'd like to know more about the Paleo diet. Does anyone have a good cookbook they can recommend? I'm no longer eating gluten-free products, nuts, corn, soy, gluten or dairy. Also, any suggestions on easy to grab foods would be helpful (like bananas). Today, I am replacing coffee with green tea.

It's a good thing I was completely ignorant of what this process would entail when I took up the gluten-free banner. It is a crazy ride. All I can say is, my poor body and the abuse it took while I was weak and gullible enough to rely on my dreamteam of doctors who know NOTHING about Celiac! My husband wants me to find a doctor in Functional Medicine. They seem to be all about environmental toxins, food and autoimmune diseases.

This turned out to be more of a blurt. Any help with Paleo easy to grab foods would be appreciated. It's always helpful to hear others' experiences with all of this.

These learning curves are making me weary. At least I'm on the road though.

Cali

I just went through Tylenol withdrawal. I was taking the recommended dosage & my doctor told me I could do that safely for life. BS!!!!

Yesterday I gave up coffee too but today, I'm drinking my java.

I'm doing the Whole30 diet right now, which is a really strict version of paleo - no dairy, legumes, sugar, artificial sweeteners, alcohol, white potatoes, grains of any type or manufactured oils (olive oil, coconut oil, animal fats like lard, and ghee are ok - things like canola, soybean, sunflower are not).  They've got a book - but I've mostly been using the website, which has a big forum and a lot of recipe ideas.  They also have a special autimmune protocol version of the diet, which eliminates nuts, eggs and nightshades (I think) in addition to the above.

 

Website is here: http://whole9life.com/category/whole-30/

 

Mark's Daily Apple is a good resource for paleo stuff as well.  He does allow dairy, so watch out for that in the recipes.  But he's got a lot of good information and a ton of recipes you can download for free: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/

 

I don't snack much anymore, but I always keep stuff at work in case I need it - extra fruit, a bag of nuts (I know you can't have these - but maybe pumpkin seeds or something like that?) - I keep a lot of canned fish around, especially sardines, which I eat right out of the can - dried fruit, homemade vegetable chips, chopped up vegetables, avocados, hard-boiled eggs, etc. are all good options too.

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
    • DaVinci's Pizza has several gluten-free items great gluten-free pizza (well done suggested) and they don't have anything with gluten that goes in the fryer, so wing and fries are great all salad dressing made in house and gluten-free.  Owners mom has Celiac so they're very empathetic. Cheers. And enjoy. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had an issue. And if someone just touches bread then prepares my food its all over for me 6-8 hrs of reaction for me. Also Jimmy Johns @ 17th and Peachtree Street also great just tellm'to change glove and ask for the paper to be placed on the sandwich board before they make it. Also never had an issue but I have only had the Italian style lettuce wrap.
