Found Something For Inflammation

Six weeks on tea - eight weeks without all other supplements.

Tea is steeped very dark - twice per day -- I'm currently using two teabags in the morning and reusing them for second cup.

Am still slowly improving - more hours vertical.

Have added almonds back into diet - Happy Dance :wub:

Might lose the only high lectin food that remained in my diet - the incredible edible egg - going without for 7-10 days to see if it helps.

Not certain tea is reason for improvement - but seems to be partially responsible - when I don't drink it I feel worse -- again not scientific but remains promising.

Son stopped for almost a week - reflux did not worsen, but sinuses did - he's back on one cup per day.

I think the tea was upsetting my stomach. Just a blech feeling. Tried Patti's sour cherry drink - it's a really god cherry limeade! So yummy but it isn't helping my joints. My hips are getting worse. So I'm trying this from Rosetapper. The oils have no taste in some Sunny D ( left over from Thanksgiving for the nephews) but it is oily. Only been doing it 2 days, so I'll report back.

Rosetapper:

"That said, I can give you a couple of remedies that should work for your muscles and joints. First, you should take chelated manganese, which you may be deficient in and which is extremely necessary for the health of your muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Secondly, if you take 1/2 teaspoon of organic flaxseed oil and 3/4 teaspoon of organic safflower oil and mix them in a smoothie or glass of juice once a day, your muscles will stop aching almost immediately. Your joints should start feeling better, too, in a few days. I'm pretty sure these remedies will help you out--good luck! "

Same here with the nettle tea and my gut. Had to stop it.

I tried ginger tea--steeped it. Very good for gut, no help with bones/joints

Love the tart cherry juice and seltzer with lime, but no help with the ouchies.

I tried the omega oils for 2 months--for my muscles and connective tissues.....I did not notice anything.

Not being a downer, just honest. As I always am.

Hope they work for you, K!

Rosetapper has good luck with that protocol for her muscles.

I am off grains again. I started to notice less pain and overall, just better energy, etc.after 3 weeks...then at THanX, I had some grains....and the pain shot right back up.

well, Duh, Irish....

I stopped the nettle tea also. I kept some for trying later, but don't drink it every day now. Same thing with peppermint tea. I don't think people should drink it every day either. Ginger tea worked for a while, but I had to stop it also. And cinnamon, and chocolate tea. Some things seem to be ok in small occasional quantities, but not in constant consumption. At least for me that's how it works.

A friend of mine has life-threatening gout. He tried the cherry juice and it helped some, but then he started taking celery seed capsules (from the health food store). His gout which used to flare up on him every few days has not bothered him in MONTHS now. They say it is great for arthritis pain too.

wow thats amazing! What is nettle tea? Is it like an herbal tea? also, can you just get it at the grocery store? or health food stores?

Wanted to share this....I have been on a gluten-free diet for 1 1/2 years but for the longest time still having issues.....something in my body was being attacked randomly like a wild fire. I went completely grain free, sugar free 6 months ago and FINALLY after over a year the buzzing in my ears went away. If I did have any corn or rice I noticed my hands would get tight and my feet would hurt. So I tried nettle tea which claimed to help with inflammation.....BINGO, it worked!!!! I drank a cup every day the first week, now I drink a cup every other day and I can now have small amounts of corn and rice without my hands and feet hurting, and no more ringing in my ears!!!!

I get mine reasonably priced and delivered from Amazon. I have seen it at both the health food store and regular grocery store -- at the grocery it was labeled for prostate.

Skittles, nettle tea is made from the weed/plant, nettle. Have you ever heard of stringing nettle? It is a tall green plant that grows wild at least in Europe, not sure where all it grows. There are some teas that come mixed but I actually like the one that is nothing but nettles.

After my first week of more of daily nettle tea I backed off to 1-2 cups per week only steeping the tea for approx 1 minute (otherwise it is too strong for me) and I have not had any inflammation issues since. My body is no longer on fire and I am no longer chasing the next health issue. I actually feel normal now.

My husband has problems with gout and has been using the tea as long as I have and is reaping the benefits himself. We ran out at one point and he noticed he started having cramping in the arches of his feet which he had not even realized had gone away. He feels the tea keeps the cramps in his feet away. He drinks the tea almost daily but my body is super hyper sensative so I have to be real careful.

I read where a couple of people were talking about it healing inflamation. Are you talking about inflamation in the stomach? Just wondering because my stomach gets swollen sometimes if I eat something that doesn't agree with me. And it isn't always just gas.. sometimes it just feels inflammed.

Sorry no one answered -- inflammation everywhere in the body for me.

Update regarding Nettle Tea:

My son and I are still drinking once daily - he has one tea bag and I use two bags and let mine steep for a long time. We have found that if we skip a day or two our issues - my joint pain and abdomen bloat return slightly -- his sinuses become more stuffy -- this still has not cleared completely -- but is much improved since he has been drinking the tea.

I have found a reason that nettle tea is working for me -- it is a natural anti-histamine and I have recently found the connection between histamine containing and histamine stimulating foods to some of my unresolved symptoms -- I had already previously removed many histamine containing foods because many of them also contain lectins - removing them all has helped A LOT :)

Have been looking for a good - easy to understand list of histamine intolerance for the past month or so and found a very nice one yesterday -- here's the link if anyone is interested:

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
