In Topic: Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD)

Just an update on me:

We were on vacation for 2 weeks PLUS the holidays....Then I got back to a ton of sales and commission work. So I have been VERY BUSY. But Im not complaining...in this economy....it is such a blessing!!

Right now I am investigation "migraine syndrome". I found this book in a bookstore:

Heal Your Headache: The 1-2-3 Program for Taking Charge of Your Pain (Paperback)
by David Buchholz

I was getting better, but I had some NEURO setbacks. This book was "spot on" for me. My symptoms....ALL neuro really. Very mild D. But ALL others neuro. He explains how my symptoms are all manifestations of migraine (not just the headaches). Fascinating read too. I believe Gluten is definately a trigger for me, but he explains all the many other food triggers.

So I am 1 week into the migraine relief diet. He says to give it a good 2 months before assessing. So nothing to report just yet. I want the vertigo, neuropathy and headaches to go completely away....I dont want any residual.

The book explains why the SCD wasnt working for me totally. I had to nix fermented foods and nuts. As they are both major triggers to migraines.

Will let you know!! When things ease up....I'll be back in.

Ideally you would "heal" your body instead of just giving it a drug. But believe me, I understand the temptation to just drink. ALL of the studies suggest women shouldnt drink more than 1 little glass of alcohol a day. So if you are going to imbibe, I would keep it to 1 (one) 4 oz glass in the evening and not 2.

Find a good Holistic doctor who can help you heal your adrenals and fix your circadian cycle. Did you ever try Melatonin before bed? GABA? These can help regulate your body and get it back on track. Then you ween off of them.

Glad it is feeling better. I dont have any mercury left in my mouth. I found a biological dentist nearby who did everything right (ventilation, dam, etc.). I did them 2 at a time till they were all done....5 visits. It is worth it IMO. I have no regrets there. My body temperature went up 2 degrees when there were all out!! They were suppressing my thyroid big time.

Anyway....I am still at it....I forget what day I am on...10 or so....I've been with the sesame...but going to change it up tomorrow and use coconut. Teeth still look good. No major changes yet. Still keeping an eye on those gums. :)

In Topic: About "natural Flavors"

You cannot make a blanket statement like "all" because the FDA doesnt monitor what goes into "natural flavor". Honestly ANYTHING can be in it. But in general, yes, it has some form of MSG. Like "yeast extract", "autolyzed yeast", "flavorings", etc. They generally do. MSG is a flavor enhancer. Any bland yucky food can be made to taste good with it. This is why you find it in SO many places with hidden names.

Fast food without MSG.....not likely. Try Chipotle. They are probably o.k.
