Topics I've Started

Reaction To Starch?!

15 April 2014 - 07:39 AM

I know it sounds nutty but I've been feeling off and bloated, puffy, poorly tummy and generally just not me over the last couple of months.  The only change i have made is eating starch in the form of potato crisps, some corn/rice pasta, plain white rice even though my acupuncturist says I can tolerate all of those.  The only thing I can think of is something to do with the starch.


Does anyone else have this... or a similar reaction?  I have been starch free for the last 24 hours and even though I am starving hungry I feel much less puffy and toxic.

Soil Based Probiotic

10 April 2014 - 11:31 PM

Hello.  I wonder if anyone has tried a soil base probiotic and what were their findings... did they have to start out gradually, and were the results better/worse?  I have had to stop taking a standard probiotic because it really does not seem to be helping me... in fact making me worse!  I would like to really start to do something to heal my gut and wonder if this might be the right path to try.  Does anyone know which ones are best and most reliable... I'm in the UK so a UK supplier would be good.

Additional Food Intolerances - Poll

02 April 2014 - 10:15 PM

Hi everyone


I thought it might be interesting for us all to list what we are intolerant too in addition to Gluten as so many of us seem to have problems after cutting gluten from our diet - we might be able to experiment on cutting certain foods based on the findings.  It might be interesting also to find out what symptoms you had with them which lead to you sussing out you were intolerant.  Here's mine:


Eggs - heartbeat/heat/irritability

Dairy - heat/irritability/massive water retention

Soya - heartbeat raised, water retention

Corn - hearbeat raised

Rice (? TBC) - heartbeat raised

Fish - itchy, water retention

Shellfish - itchy, water retention

Coconut - raised heartbeat, high irritability

Palm oil - heat, high irritability, water retention

Potato? - water retention

Probiotics And Irritability/pmt

05 February 2014 - 08:12 AM

Just a little poll to throw out there.  Has anyone else had any significant results from taking a good probiotic with post exposure healing and also PMT symptoms?  I was really getting worried because I was on the perfect diet...totally clean, no possibility for contamination from any of the foods I am sensitive to, but still getting the itchies, irritability, brain fog etc.


 It took ages for me to find a completely dairy free probiotic with nothing else in it.. no FOS etc.  I am amazed already from the first month cycle that somehow my pmt seemed to only arrive 5 days before period and if it got bad I took a probiotic and a good drink of water and everything would calm down. And the itchies are much less, energy better etc.  Is this just a fluke and it'll all be back next month, or has anyone else found that probiotics have really helped them?
