77 posts in this topic

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

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.

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)))

thanks so much everyone for trying to help out

Hon, this is exactly what I asked you in our PMs---do you have anything VISIBLE--and you said NO. So I do not understand why you are taking an anti-fungal at all. I do not get this guy's treatment plan.

Small bowel bacterial overgrowth is a different story, but you said they scoped you and tested you in the hospital.

What were the results of the skin prick testing?

If you decide not to take it, you could say "I did not take it ---as I do not have candida albicans." ---IMHO

What does your primary care doctor think of Dr. Murray's diet and prescription therapy????? Maybe you need a 2nd opinion.

Remember what I told you, hon--none of us are doctors and we can only tell you about our experiences. No one is telling you to stop a medication--we just do not know why you are still taking it for no actual DX of candida-- and you feel worse.

Well, Coll--there are two things going on here.

You have environmental allergies and food allergies.

If that is what the skin prick test showed-- They are allergies, not intolerances and so, I am wondering why he has not given you any antihistamines. Or even Zantac --which is a histamine 2 blocker. You could try an over-the-counter 2 week trial of this and see if it helps! Other people on here with wheat allergies use it successfully. :)

As far as trees, grass, ragweed, :) (and who ISN'T allergic to dust mites?--I am too)--the only thing of real concern is your cat. Meaning, you are around her al the time. The other things are a seasonal allergy.

Didn't you tell me you have a cat??? Do you have any anti-histamines for these allergies? Because that would solve a lot of your problems.

Okay, so the foods to avoid are:

Dairy, wheat,(and if we include all gluten-- rye and barley are out, too) , soy and chocolate.

Those are manageable!!--most of us do the first three every day.

Take just those four foods out. Add some back in--you have been starving for weeks! Take the digestive enzymes before meals and your probiotics. Watch out for cross contamination--as we have discussed--and see what happens. Use the Earth Balance spread (the one without soy in the red container) and So delicious Coconut milk for dairy. They can be used in cooking, too.

WHY didn't he give you some antihistamines for these multiple allergies instead of the stupid Nystatin?????? please....ASK him! You need some relief, hon.

If you have enviro allergies they can make you darn miserable. I resorted to Children's Claritin a week ago because I was desperate to figure out if I was experiencing a glutening or enviro allergies....and guess what, it helped alot of my problems!

Now, I'm wondering what to DO with the info (antihistimes help me) but hey, I'll take the relief!

Try it and see what happens!

I think it was TrishTrish who told me about using the Zantac for her wheat allergy and she had amazing results. :)

I had so many "histamine" responses going on before DX--and most of them cleared up after being gluten-free for about 8 months. But every now and then, I get red skin, feel hot and I get all "snarfully" in the nose and throat, short of breath even---and wonder what the heck it was. It know sure as heck it is NOT gluten, and I allegedly do not have food allergies (tested every which way) but certainly, we can have other things going on, too.

I am such a weird medical puzzle, so I am never surprised by what happens in me anymore. But Coll here has been suffering without any relief---and starving herself because of this doctor's advice----and all her symptoms continue. :unsure: She needs a break.

Zantac is a type 1 blocker.

Claritin is a type 2 blocker.

People are responsive to different blockers - as Trish Trish found out. I believe she had been on type 2's only and they didn't work for her.

Personally, I've tried 1's, 2's, and combos and funny enough none worked well at all for me until NOW. I am going to assume going gluten-free has helped. I don't know, I'm just glad the Claritin (a half child's dose) is working. For the record I used to take it daily and it didnt do a fraction of what its doing now.

So, yes, if you suspect allergies try an antihistimine. It helps me quite a bit now (why, who knows...and what that means....tbd, I'm sure). If the first one doesn't work, try another.

Here's a quick chart of antihistimines by type:

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
