#847706 Corn Sensitivity

Posted by dreacakes on 09 January 2013 - 12:21 PM

I'm sensitive to all grains. When I eat corn I have the same reaction to eating wheat gluten.
There are medical practitioners and researchers out there who actually say that people with gluten intolerance need to avoid ALL grain. They claim it's essential for healing.
I know that for me, I had to cut out all grain before I began to get my health back. I'm on a paleo-esque diet. ("esque" because I do eat some goat dairy and a bit of sugar containing foods sometimes) I was put on the diet by my doctor, who'd had incredible success with putting his other patients on the diet as well.
It's very nutritious, makes you feel amazing, and has the science to back up it's healthfulness.

This book is a great starter book for the diet if you want to look into it more: http://www.amazon.co...diet autoimmune

#833927 A Question About Malabsorption:

Posted by dreacakes on 02 November 2012 - 01:00 AM

I highly suggest seeing a holistic nutritionist or naturopathic doctor for more help on what you need and what to eat. If you don't know any in your area, this woman does long-distance consultations (and is expensive, but the information is worth it!) http://chriskresser....ew-patient-info
I also found my fantastic chiropractor on this website, and he helped with my nutrition immensely (I know it says it's about thyroids... but really these practitioners specialize in auto-immune disorders.):

The body does eventually heal in most people. You're young, so you will probably heal wonderfully.

In my experience eating foods that are really nutrient-dense is so essential. Supplements are sub-par and too often totally ineffective. Bone broth, cod liver oil (traditionally fermented), organ meats, nettle infusion... all great things to add to your diet that cover many common nutrient deficiencies.

Best of luck to you!!
