ok so i saw the allergy doc today and he put me on this way of eating i dont think i can call it a diet but anyway here is what he says

keep taking nystead
keep a running list of all foods i react to
stay away from thoes foods
keep in mind of cross cont foods with birch ragweed grass and stay away
and ofcourse the usual stay nightshade free lactose free asid free soy free gluten free and if eggs upset your system stay egg free yeast free
let my stystem rest for a while keep it clean and stop pushing your self

i asked about chic pea flour and he asked why i need to try to put flours in your system i said cuase i would love a muffin scone buscit cookie bread roll anything like that and he laughed and well did not say anything after that

and visit was over left with a rx for nystead and to keep doing what im doing
what i am doing is going crazy trying to figure out what in the heck i am supposed to be eating

he gave me a guide it may be changed and altered

breakfast include protien in am to help
cooked Quinoa with cinamon agave and apples- ok system can not handle quinoa i have tryed it have reaction to apples of all kinds swelling behind ears acid feeling in guts burning

oatmeal same thing
yeast free toast - have not found any bread that my system likes

eggs- super sick to stomach

spelt - no to this gluten soy and yeast

lunches
green salad with dry spices and olive oil tryed it hurts besides its yucky


home made bone broth soups with green vegies
like everything he suggests on here i react to on this paper

i have a candidia fungal control diet but i react to so much on that list

im getting so overwhelmed and at such a loss to what i can and can not eat
what do i buy to eat
grocrie day is comeing up im out of everything i need to figure out a menu plan
and not only what can i buy to eat but also what can i drink i love to have something hot to drink cant figure that one out yet either guts are too sensitive


good greif :(

Is your doc using those food restrictions to treat (or eliminate) your Candida infection? How were you diagnosed with Candida? Did he actually run a blood test (for IgG and/or IgA mediated) food allergies? Or did he base his recommendations on theory?

I eliminated Candida simply by taking Nystatin for 4 months. No recurrence since. It never recurred on any of 5 subsequent stool tests.

ELISA test diagnosed egg/cane sugar IgG allergies 8/06; vanilla/nutmeg 8/06. 2006-10 diagnosed by DNA Microbial stool tests and successfully treated: Klebsiella, Enterobacter Cloaecae, Cryptosporidia, Candida, C-diff, Achromobacter, H. Pylori and Dientamoeba Fragilis. 6/10 Heidelberg capsule test diagnosed hypochloridia. Vitamin D deficiency, hypothyroiditis, hypochloridia and low white blood cells caused vulnerability to infections.

I cannot believe after all we talked about --and you told me that you do not even have a yeast infection nor were you tested for it ---that he is still insisting you take Nystatin after all this time. ???

Taking that drug in the absence of a candida infection is not a good idea.

It is disturbing to me that you have dropped all that weight and that you are starving and in pain all the time. This is not right, Colleen. How can you keep doing this, hon??

I told you in our PM messages and I will say it again---this guy is NOT helping you, in my humble opinion.

He did not do any allergy testing--yet he tells you to avoid all these foods???? On what basis???

He tells you to avoid gluten--- but to eat spelt?? Who is this guy???

Something is not right here. IMHO

omg i totally agree
i am not too sure about taking the anti fungal i have 5 repeats at that

he gave me this rx saying that he is going to be gone for a few weeks and did not want me to have a reacruance fair up of major symptoms

but i do not have a yeast infection down below or in mouth or anywhere that i know of

what i do know is gluten nightshade soy lactose egg are all cause problems

i also had symple skin prick allergy testing done when i first went to see dr murry

the droping of weight is disturbing to family as well

i believe you are right about that this guy is not helping my gp is not helping and 2 requests were sent to a gastro and he says im not suvere enough and wont see me


so this is why i come here to this group in hopes yall can help me through this seeing as i just have to take matters into my own hands i guess

i have been taking L glutimine and vitiman supplements with digestive enzimes 20 bucks a bottle as far as i can tell there is no gluten soy or anything like that

now as far as the anti fungal goes what do i say if i dont take it

Have you tried a healing diet like GAPS? Many others here have tried it including Skylark, DomesticActivist.

I feel like its GAPS day for me....

I haven't tried it but it sure helps people identify problems and apparently rebuild their guts.

And apparently it tells you what to eat, which is a big help!

I think people modify it. Pm Skylark, I think she's milk intolerant and manages somehow. I think you can substitute another protein for eggs.

I think sometimes people find they don't react to past problem foods when reintroducing them in GAPS.

I know you can make water kefir.

I'd say find another doctor or just follow your gut. You know that gluten, soy, lactose (maybe all dairy or casein), egg and nightshade bother you. Just avoid those and you'll still have plenty to eat. I was dx'd by blood tests with IgG or IgA mediated (delayed reaction) allergies to dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg (as well as gluten intolerance). I have plenty to eat. I don't particularly care for nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers). So I can easily pass those up. I think you have plenty of choices if you just avoid the foods which you said bothered you.

L-Glutamine is great for healing the stomach and intestinal lining, if you have cramping gut pain or had a Helicobacter Pylor infection. (I had both and L-G worked well for me.) However, you first need to avoid any foods which cause pain for you so that you don't continue to damage your gut.

If you don't really need antifungal or antibiotic or antiparasitic drugs, don't take them, esp. if you don't have a lab diagnosis which verifies that you have those kind of infections and need treatment. All drugs have negative side effects. After taking antifungals, antibiotics and antiparasitic drugs for 8 different gastro infections (5 bacterial, 2 parasites and candida) for 4 years, my white blood cells were really low and I got frequent respiratory infections. Research has shown that some antibiotics (namely vancomycin for C-diff) and even antiparasitic drugs (Iodoquinol for Dientamoeba fragilis) can deplete your white blood cells. I'm much better now after taking LDN to raise my white blood cell levels, but I would prefer to prevent those gastro infections or just not take drugs if I don't have the infections.

I would suggest that you just omit the foods that you know you react to? If you weren't tested for Candida or small intestine bacterial overgrowth the Dr. may be prescribing meds you don't need? Maybe go without them for a bit and use the meds later if you feel you want to?

If you want something hot to drink..maybe hot water with lemon and honey? Honey helps heal, and lemon is good for your gallbladder. Maybe try an herbal tea with ginger or mint or just weak green tea?

Eat small amounts of the foods you tolerate, more frequently than 3 times a day.

For right now, don't worry too much about a balanced diet. Eat what you tolerate and take vitamins.
Small amounts of protein are good for you so eat a bit several times a day. Maybe a slice of ham,turkey, or roast beef or something like that? You'll get the amino acids your body needs from it. I've found that I tolerate Boar's Head brand lunch meats from the deli. They are gluten/soy free. I hope you can find a good brand where you live? You can just get a couple of slices..you don't have to buy pounds and wreck your budget.

I'm where you are now. I just saw a new PCP who prescribed anti-nausea medicine, so hopefully I can get an appetite and eat more. I'm still losing weight!

Be sure to drink lots of water! It helps flush things through your system, and if you get dehydrated that alone can have you feeling bad.

Hang in there..be sure to keep your food log and note anything that bothers you. You can also refer to it to see what you tolerated well and eat more of it.
(((hugs)))
