Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Wow, okay, I think I can get through this without rereading, lol:

Stuporman - LOVE THAT NAME!! I didn't really have any specific symtoms that could be attributed to the vitamin thing, but in general wasn't healing well. I started by doing the SCD diet, then cut out corn, and cut down on MSG and at the same time quit all supplements. I think just staying off of them for a while has really helped. The last couple of days I've been trying to reintroduce just a couple of them and so far so good.

Cecile - love the new pic of Anna!

Christina - I'm so sorry, I agree with Susan and Vincent.

Sally - WELCOME, sorry I'm late, lol!

Julie - I am also interested in the adrenal stuff...did you post links when you first posted about it...if so I may have bookmarked them...must go look.

Rachel - you are one insane person, lol. I went out two times this weekend and all I could think of was getting back to my shorts/tank top and my couch. :lol: You should definitely come to the Stanford thingy...I'm planning on going too--it would be fun to meet up with everyone.

Robbin - wow, so sorry about the eyes.

Everyone, HELLO!!!

Susan...you were right!! Scratched up bloodied arms = good times!

One of the guys at work asked how my weekend was and I held up my arms....he was like "COOL...you had fun!". :blink:

:lol: The rest of the people just thought I was freaking out of my mind for even going outside. <_<

:lol::lol::lol::lol:

See, good times indeed! except, the caveat is.....*I* don't go outside except for ESSENTIAL things when it's over 95---

IT"S SO HOT HERE ("how hot is it?) that I actually had to hydrate my baby wipes :ph34r: with a water mister....they were drying out...

Sally, I posted a message to Christine - I feel her pain and agree w/ Vincent - the "friend" thing usually doesn't work, or if it DOES, it's after a very long time, much distance, and healing has taken place. And, he doesn't even sound like a keeper for friend material, really.....mommy's boy.....

Rachel, Julie, I was prepping the dingos for the assigment!! Oh yes, they love special assignments and are up for anything.....but Whew! glad you're back safely from the annals of R-ville - - yes, v. scary indeed going BACK.....much too hard to search......

gotta go......too much to do....gotta make some jewelry to sell.....oh and grandma rosie's funeral is tomorrow, must take care of the family.....

Donna, I don't think I posted a link, just quotes and info. about the relationship between histamine and adrenal function. I went back (yes it was scary indeed going back :blink: ) and found it on page 194. Seems like it was a lifetime ago, but it was only 2 days :lol: Life sure does move at a rapid speed here in Rachelville.

Susan, I'm so glad we have our dingos! And you are like a Jack of all Trades (is that the correct expression? :blink: ) It seems you can do anything and everything. I think that is fabulous!

You take good care of your family and my thoughts are with you and yours for tomorrow :)

Julie, I keep forgetting to address the adrenal thing. You know more about this than I do but I agree that it somehow plays a part. I had some questions I wanted to ask but dont have time right now...dont let me forget. :)

ok, I will remind you!

Wow...that was a lot for one night to cathc up on. Good thing I took the day off from work!

Just finished cleaning off the outsideof the house, and was wondering if we could outlaw spiders in R-Ville somehow. There were dozens of webs out on the siding, and now none. :)

Anyway, I may have to go lay down...am not feeling so well today.

Robbin, sorry to hear about the eyes, and hope you can remember what it was you wanted to ask me.

HAGD all! ;)

Julie - thanks...I will go back (OH NO) and search page 194. :lol:

I looked on my computer at the temperature and it said 84....then I went outside. It's not 84. It's 184. I felt like an ant under a magnifying glass. The thought of having to go out to Blockbuster is pure torture. I wonder if my husband would find Lifetime Movie Network interesting.... :blink:

So, I guess our organic, non-GMO, auxigro-free vegetables are also capable of pollenating themselves? :blink:

That's my favorite phrase from the hilarious, fabulous, and way hunky duo from While You Were Out - Evan Farmer and Jason Cameron.

:lol: about the jojoba oil Susan, I'm thinking it was too much? So sorry, or what about leave in conditioner? I guess you will have to ask our hair/beauty expert nikki-uk about this....

no, I didn't emerge from the shower like that :lol: I long for wash and go hair.....if I washed and went, believe me, it wouldn't be pretty.

Julie--I just saw your new pretty picture on another thread. I love your hair in it! :)

ahhh Patti, you are always too kind :)

I have a question for you about claritin, does it increase your appetite or cause any noticable side effects for you? I am trying to look for the side effects on-line for any information but I can't find any....

so it looks like there are a number of you who have felt better after stopping all vitamins/supplements even when they didn't have any identifiable "bad" ingredients... I can't help but think I'm just bugging out by worrying about the possibility of negatively reacting to supplements but there's a part of me that wants to say I was feeling better a few months ago prior to introducing these vitamins/supplements, which I've taken on and off again since then... can't really tell much at the moment anyway since I'm taking an antifungal to treat the candida...

unfortunately, there are no easy answers, as I'm sure you all know... but say, for instance, I am taking a probiotic right now, which I've been told and read in numerous sources is essentially necessary while taking an antifungal to eliminate candida... I don't want to stop it but at the same time, I'm not positive it doesn't make me feel worse although it's hard to tell what could be related as the symptoms I'm currently feeling could simply be candida detox symptoms.. who knows..

what's up julie... I remember that you similarly negatively reacted to the metagenics ultra clear shakes, which is the only supplement I'm nearly positive I reacted to... so you felt better after stopping the pure vitamins, huh? they're supposed to be pretty much top of the line, cleanest vitamins, no?

I don't really have stomach issues with the vitamins/supplements.. maybe here and there but that's not what I'm concerned about... the symptoms that concern me are more general body aches and weakness, leg pain, brain fog, and the feeling I sometimes get running through my body almost as if there's something coursing through my veins...

I'm on the fence now about what to do... my nutritionist really wants me to take a whole bunch of supplements and I'm questioning the limited number I do take... I might give it a trial run while trying to keep everything else constant but it's generally hard for me to ascertain what I'm reacting to..

as for my user-name, thanks... gotta have a sense of humor to get through this.. but it looks like you guys already have over 200 pages under your belt in that department

I agree Charlie, it's so hard to know what exactly is causing it all. I tend to have delayed reactions so it's hard for me to tell too. It's really hard to keep a detailed enough journal sometimes, and I have kept a daily health journal for the past 4 years, but I still find it hard to be detailed enough. I thought all my supplements were pretty good quality and I tried to make sure they were free of at least the major allergins...I think it was just that my body was so overloaded and irritated. I wish I had something that would help you.

We can always use more humor in Rachelville! :P

Hi Charlie, Sorry, I meant to answer you before. I do have problems with a lot of suppliments that I have verified gluten-free. Freeda Vitamins comes to mind--they caused me stomach upset right away. I have yet to find a digestive enzyme or probiotic that agrees with me. I used Culturelle (probiotic) and became nauseous with got D within a few days. I tried Whole Foods brand digestive enzymes--marked gluten-free. Same thing. I take (surprisingly) a Centrum Advanced every morning, and am fine with it. My system is pretty sensitive--I'm intolerant to a lot, so I feel that I'm just better off with not taking a lot of suppliments. Good luck with finding the right combination for you :)

Julie, I've used Claritan for years and have never noticed any side effects from it. According to my allergist, the older, non-sedating antihistimines can cause an increase in appetite.

Yeah....in my search I saw a post from Mango....it made me realize that she must be gone now??? :unsure:

Hopefully we will hear something from her soon...I hope she doesnt forget about her Koala mission. :P

I've been here briefly on and off for the past few days...with not much time to post :wacko:

I must bid you all farewell for a short while as it's time to venture to the far off lands. I'll be sure to seek out very talented and magical koalas, since it just wouldn't be right to have miraculous, protective, auxigro detecting geese...and just plain old koalas....

I'll be looking forward to seeing what kind of relevations you're all having when I come back to check in (which will probably be soon. I mean, my R'ville job title states I must report back with all the news and information from the far off lands - whatever that may be :lol: ).

Goodbye for now. :(

Patti- I'm the same way with vitamins, I can't tolerate ANY OF THEM, not even centrum. Ever since I got mono, my body's not having it. I found a liquid food based iron that I can take, but that's it right now. I'll worry about vitamins later.

Meredith- Have a safe incredibly long flight! I wish you many memorable adventures and delicious pavlovas!! Made with something other than whipped cream...

Maybe the magical koalas can pollenate our organic, non GMO, auxigro-free, bug-free fruits and veggies. The dingo's and geese have enough to do. :rolleyes:

Um, my hair is kind of falling out. I had my hair in a ponytail today and when I took it down there was quite a nest of hair on my hair thingy. I've definitely dropped more than 100 hairs today :o

My mom blames it on malnutrition and our incredibly thick hair. Even so, it freaked me out. I'm not going to be surprised with anything else wierd that happens with my body :rolleyes:

Oh, and the smaller of the two culinary schools in town got back to me, they are familiar with celiac, but don't think they'd be able to teach me :(

Apparently there is a vegetarian/vegan culinary program around here, but that would be no fun. I'm a meat eater and they use lots of gluten, too. I'm also not paying $10,000 for a program that's not even accredited.


Alright, don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy

We'll all float on, alright

Well we'll float on good news is on the way...
