Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Thanks Floridian. I do get more sensitive leading up to my period....everything I read says ovarian cysts are totally normal in menstruating females. How will they really know if mine are normal or not? That confuses me. Thanks for helping me out with this...its making me feel better talking about it. :)

Hormones in animal farming

Sex hormones are used to speed up the development of animals so they can be sent to market faster. Humans are also sensitive to these hormones. Eating meat that contains unacceptably high levels of hormones can lead to many side effects in people, including breast enlargement and ovarian cysts.

Cows in this country are routinely given recombinant boine growth hormone AND constant "prophylactic" antibiotics which passes into their milk, along with the pesticides in the feed that they consume. All that garbage is present in milk and all milk poducts, unless you spend a fortune and buy everything organic.

Girls today are getting their periods at the age of 9 or sometimes even earlier. There are several girls in my son's 5th grade class that wear much-needed bras. Gee, I wonder why.

I did react to the cucumber cuz right after I ate it my head and nose started swelling and. My mucus membranes get "sticky". This is what happens with me and chemicals so it was probably cuz it wasnt organic.

Question

You said that your head and nose started swelling and or your mucus membranes got sticky.

Did your nose or thoat feel sticky? Or slimey?

Do you get that stickiness with all reactions? What do you think it might be?

Thats interesting because I get "sticky" too. I think that could be mucus, since its coming from the mucus membranes.

Mainly in my nose and throat. After meals. Mainly all the time. At its worst when I react, to somthing, I cant eat cucumbers very well. or dried fruits.

The eyes, nose, throat are all mucus membranes.

thanks for your response.

Rachel--the doctor will know exactly what kind of cyst you have from the ultrasound. Mine are 'functional' meaning they are normal and clear--nothing in them. What I am not clear on is if it's the same cyst, or a different one. The tech. that did the ultrasound said that if I had a cyst before, I wouldn't still have it. The nurse in the doctor's office said the same thing when I was describing my pain to her. Of course the doctor thinks the pain is due to the fibroid--but it's only on the left side <_<

Fiddle Faddle--My niece started her period at age 9.

OMG--I just noticed that 7 more posts and this thread hits 1000! :D

Hi Rachel,

Thanks for your reply. When I use baking soda for my teeth I get a white line on the inside of my cheeks.

It also starts swelling. A few days later the tip of my tong develops something that looks like a cyst.

I had issues with whitening toothpaste before and had to go to the dentist.

That was about two years ago. The dentist was shocked and said it looks like a second degree burning.

Like I poured acid in my mouth.

It hurt like crazy. Not a fun thing to have.

Hi Manja,

I am wondering if you have a problem with all forms of sodium? Someone else on the board in another thread was told by their doctor that baking soda is a form of salt, so maybe that is why you react to it as well?

Julie, You are right. I think it was Betty that had a terrible reaction to salt/baking soda.

Rachel - about the cucumbers...I was buying organic from Whole Foods but when I would wash them I could feel a sticky almost gel like substance on the skins that wouldn't come off...I always peel mine, but am sure that some of it gets on the peeler and back on the cucumber....then I just happened to see Rachel Ray on the Food Network who always buys the "english" cucumbers--the ones in the plastic wrap--because she says they don't have that sticky gel stuff on them. I was thinking it was my imagination, but no, guess not. So I've been buying the really long skinny ones in the plastic wrap and haven't noticed any stickiness on the skins when I wash them...bonus, they have very few seeds.

Julie and Armetta,

{{{{{{{{{{{{{HUG}}}}}}}}}}}}

Hope your day goes better tomorrow. This board has been pretty quiet today. I was having a kinda down night last night as well. What is it with us, is it the weather (that's the typical excuse up here). :lol: Time to cheer up, the sun is out (just came out after a torrential downpour here). Well, I think I'm doing better for one because the little one only decided to wake up once last night and my older ones decided to let me sleep in. He used to sleep through but had recently started waking up twice. I didn't get up until 9:00. :ph34r: Also it's the weekend and my hubby is home. :D:P:rolleyes: He always brightens my day.

The sun'll come out

Tomorrow

Bet your bottom dollar

That tomorrow

There'll be sun!

Just thinkin' about

Tomorrow

Clears away the cobwebs,

And the sorrow

'Til there's none!

When I'm stuck a day

That's gray,

And lonely,

I just stick out my chin

And Grin,

And Say,

Oh!

The sun'll come out

Tomorrow

So ya gotta hang on

'Til tomorrow

Come what may

Tomorrow! Tomorrow!

I love ya Tomorrow!

You're always

A day

A way!

Thanks Andrea for the hugs, and the song. It was really helpful and so true, the sun will come out tomorrow and tomorrow is always another day to try and try again :) I hope you are feeling more chipper yourself.

I love your new picture, it's always so nice to put a face to the name. Is that Seth with you? I am in love with him, he could not be any cuter!!

dlp!!! Lovely to see your face too!! It's a great picture :):) Thank you for the hugs the other night too.

I love Rachel Ray, I was just watching her this afternoon. That is very interesting about the cucumber having sticky gel on it.

No wonder you got sick Rachel, why do they have to put so much crap and junk on/in our food?!?!

Julie, You are right. I think it was Betty that had a terrible reaction to salt/baking soda.

Hi jersey, thanks for helping me out, I couldn't remember who it was. You seem to know everyone around here and everything that is going on!

I am so glad to hear you are feeling really good, other than the glutening that happened the other day, sounds like though you recovered pretty quickly. What progress!

Jersey,

My mom has been waiting for that. She keeps asking me "Has that thread reached 1000 yet? Let me know when it does." She's all excited about that. :lol:

Arent fibroids in the middle? My doctor didnt tell me what kind of cysts I have cuz she was too busy worrying about my ringback tones. :angry:

I cannot believe girls are getting their periods at age 9! :o

I cant post anymore till I get to my mom's house because my computer is totally freaking out and the disc drive wont stop opening and closing still. It wont let me type as it does this. :angry:

So true Fiddle Faddle, but it is also presenting problems for the men/boys and their systems. They are getting too many estrogens from meat, dairy, etc. and I read there might be a connection to this and infertility (in men) and ED.

I started taking my digestive enzymes again cuz last time I was taking them it seemed like I was having less reactions...we'll see how I do now. I'm gonna call the pharmacy tomorrow...I posted last week about some drug that my doctor perscribed for healing the gut. I never called about it and the pharmacy was leaving me messages trying to get ahold of me cuz they have my prescription. I guess I'll try that too.

Thanks Floridian,

I sweat alot at night but not every night....it comes and go. Its pretty normal for me to wake up in the morning with my clothes slightly damp. I used to have massive nightsweats that left me and my bed drenched but that was prior to my diet changes. I dont get it that bad anymore and for awhile I wasnt getting them at all so figured it was all diet related. I guess the cyst could be causing some type of imbalance and my body is just not handling certain foods/chemicals very well...I just couldnt find any info. on this.

I forget why you had the cysts removed...were they too big and causing pain? I was looking back at my first journal and when I had my most worst days as far as swelling, sensitivites, fatigue, etc...I was also saying that I was ovulating and having cramps. But I wasnt consistent enough with my journal to know for sure if this was always the case....this was back when I was still eating mcdonalds and taco bell.

I do remember that the time around ovulation was always when my symptoms seemed worse cuz I used to talk about this. I used to look forward to my period coming because for some reason after my period came I'd feel better for a few days but that was it....I only felt good maybe 3 days out of the month.

I was feeling really good about a week and a half ago...I remember posting that I was happy and nothing could bring me down. Once the ovulation came I started getting worse and still not feeling good yet. Do the cysts get more "active" at certain times? Maybe thats a dumb question because maybe the cysts dont really *do* anything....I just dont know alot about cysts. :unsure:

Rachel-

which Digestive enzymes do you take? I am sensitive to everything and seem to be ok with mine they are one of the only things I am still taking. I am curious as to what the meds they are gonna give you for your gut are. You'll have to let me know when you find out the name. I've been off corn and I think its a good thing but I used to eat these plan tortillas the only ingredient was sprouted corn nothing else. I was thinking if there was nothing else in them at all could I try them again? I guess Iw as just curious on other peoples opinions.

I think I've determined that corn, msg, etc. is really probably NOT my problem, but any processed foods do seem to eventually cause me problems...not sure exactly WHAT the cause is...I"m thinking it's synergistic...the more I eat of the processed stuff the more it bothers me. When I lay off for a while I'm able to do just fine with a couple of processed items here and there and can eat things like mayo etc more regularly. So while I think I can eat corn and products which may contain a bit of msg without problem, I can't eat a lot of them or eventually my body builds up a toxic level and starts to cause problems.

My chicken experiment was interesting. For years I suffered from an intense, almost internal itch on my left heel--bad enough to wake me up and keep me awake in the middle of the night. I've seen allergists and dermatologists about it and tried creams, antihistamines, etc with no real help. At times in the last few years it has been a constant daily itch and at times it has gone away completely, so I've always suspected it was related to something I was eating or some product I was using. This week I began to suspect chicken because I haven't had that itch for several days...coincidentally haven't had any chicken in that time either. So, Friday I had chicken for two of my meals. Yesterday, throughout most of the day I had the heel itch! My legs itched just slightly so I"m tending to think that is just really dry skin which the coconut oil seems to be helping. This morning my heel doesn't itch at all!

That just confirms in my mind that my reactions are fairly delayed (i.e., not on the same day as I eat the food, but several hours to a day later) and that chicken is suspect. I plan to test this out again later in the week to be sure.

I have similar experiences dlp. What I don't understand is I seem to be able to eat corn on the cob and fresh tamales with no problem, but when I eat processed corn or corn derivatives I get super super sick. I am starting to think about the synergistic phenomenon too, as far as other ingredients mixed together. When I have processed corn or corn derivatives in packaged/canned foods it usually with salt (i.e. corn chips) or sugar (i.e. cookies) and I think these things seem to make the "corn" pack a more powerful punch as far as the reaction goes.

I also seem to be able to eat a little bit of processed food, or I can get away with a very small amount, and then if I go over that it is like the point of no return and my body reacts and keeps reacting more and more unless I take the food out of my diet entirely.

Interesting about your chicken challenge. Keep us posted what happens next with that.

dlp!!! Lovely to see your face too!! It's a great picture :):) Thank you for the hugs the other night too.

Julie,

That is Seth when he was about 4 months old. The camera battery had been replaced and I forgot to reset the date on the camera. He's almost 7 months old now. Seth is a really happy baby overall. He plays a game with Daddy now where he tilts his head to the side. Must get it from me. :rolleyes: We get family pictures taken every Oct-Nov so I'll post a family pic then. Otherwise, I'll just do updates occassionaly.

It's funny about the song. I haven't thought of it for years and that's the first thing that popped into my mind as I started typing. I had to look up the words though. :P

Mitch (my hubby) is almost to the point where he has to quit drinking his fluids in prep for tomorrow. He won't get to eat until dinner time. Such a bummer, but at least he got in quick for the colonoscopy. At least it's not Tues, Wed, or Thur...those seem to be the busiest days.

Arent fibroids in the middle? My doctor didnt tell me what kind of cysts I have cuz she was too busy worrying about my ringback tones. :angry:

Mine were all over my uterus...inside, outside and in the lining/walls.

Can't imagine what's going on with that possessed computer of yours, lol.

dlp!!! Lovely to see your face too!! It's a great picture Thank you for the hugs the other night too.

I love Rachel Ray, I was just watching her this afternoon. That is very interesting about the cucumber having sticky gel on it.

No wonder you got sick Rachel, why do they have to put so much crap and junk on/in our food?!?!

Why thank you! Oddly, Rachel Ray is one of my least favorite show hosts, but I do like her show, lol. She always has the most interesting tips. I didn't notice the sticky stuff when I first started buying cucumbers...that may be because I wasn't trying to really wash them...I was just rinsing them off...when I started to wash them with soap that's when I noticed the sticky stuff. It kind of turned my stomach...people eat cucumbers all the time without peeling them... :o

I am loving seeing all the pictures up of everyone!
