Judy, I get the chills too, especially at night, but it's not that frequent. Not sure what causes it. Maybe my elimination diet will show something. Are you hypothyroid? I always wondered if my hypothyroidism was the explanation, but not sure about the trigger.

Thanks for keeping us updated about Patti.

I'm on day 3 of my elimination diet and my stomach is very painful. I'm due to see my GI dr in Feb, about my endoscopy in Nov. I know it showed I'm doing well being gluten-free :) What I didn't know until today is that I have a small sliding hiatus hernia. I think from the pain, it might have got bigger :( I'm really regretting that chocolate over Christmas now....

I don't know what's causing them yet. I was thinking it was because I was sick with all the infections, but I didn't have other flu-like symptoms, so I don't know. I'm not getting them as often this week as I have been the last few weeks.

I don't shake violently, but the chill starts from the inside...it's a weird feeling...then the skin starts to crawl and then finally I just feel the cold. I put a space heater on high, but I was still getting them. I have one of those buckwheat filled bean bag things...it's about about 1-1/2 feet long...I heat that up in the microwave and hold onto it for a while...that seems to help.

Gosh that sucks! I hope it's not gotten bigger!

Was this Dr. Adams? I see him next week for my next removal, so I was going to ask him about chelation...I'll also ask about pH.

Yeah....it was Dr. Adams. He had spent over an hour going over everything with me. I remember being totally impressed with the amount of time he spent and how he was really trying to figure out what was going on with me. He would ask me alot of questions and then kind of look out the window while he thought about everything and then come back with more questions.

It was the first time I'd seen anyone out of mainstream as far as Dr.'s and dentists go....I wasnt used to people spending alot of time with me (especially not a dentist). I left there thinking it was strange that a dentist was trying to help me more than any of the dr.'s had. :huh:

He never brought up mercury. He talked to me about my diet, my ph, toxins and candida.....he said I wouldnt get better until I took care of this. Apparantly he was right on target....he said I had a big problem with yeast.

I wanted to know about mercury and he's the expert. I felt like he didnt think mercury was my problem because he didnt really discuss it with me at all. <_<

Rachel, thanks. In my case he talked about mercury but not much else. I'll ask more when I see him on Tuesday. By then I'll also have some info from the BioSET session which might help. :D

About sugar cravings....it says it can be caused by the pH being off and too acidic.

One other thing you will find of interest. One reason (besides Candida) for your sugar craving comes from the body being too acidic. Try it yourself and see. Test your pH when the cravings are strong.
It says if you alkalize the sugar cravings improve or go away completely.

How did we get so acidic?

Today, most of us eat very differently than our ancestors did. The preparations we use for our foods have never been tried before in the whole history of mankind.

We highly process food for convenient packaging and storage. These types of "fast" foods are most commonly highly processed carbohydrates and sugars that make our bodies acidic.

We've gotten this way with tiny steps. Each decade changing the way we eat a little bit more. Over the last few centuries these steady small steps have taken us quite a distance from the way nature intended.

Because we have these modern options our food can be processed and stored for a long time without rotting (we won't call it “fresh”). This makes these types of foods available all the time. They are fast, they are “convenient” and we eat them because they are all around us. We also pay a price for this because these foods are mostly the acid forming type foods -forcing our systems out of their natural pH balance.

So the gluten free diet should help this as long as we don't go wild over gluten free goodies and eat a well balanced diet of meat, veggies, fruits, nuts etc along with lots of water.

I made gluten free muffins. Think I'll stick to the bread. Not so sweet. I love my enjoy life chocolate chips but don't usually crave sugar foods. I do like to have them once in awhile though. Once the sugar tooth is kicked back into high gear it's hard to bring it back down. :)

That's interesting. I must not be acidic as I don't particularly like sugar. I'll eat it once in a while, but I can't say I crave it at all. For that matter, I don't really like fruit either. I'll eat it, but it's not a favorite. I do like cantalope with salt. I'll even salt a peach ... if I eat one at all.

I must be HIGHLY acidic, lol. I really do crave sweet tastes. Fruit, sugar, artificial sugars, starchy carbs, I crave them if I've been eating them...BUT, when I was on a low carb diet (did that for almost 5 years), I really didn't crave it at all...but once I get the taste again, the cravings kick into high gear which is where they are now.

Hum, I'll have to pick up some ph testing strips.

Oh Laura, how exciting that you had a somewhat normal day!!! It's so encouraging!!

Oh MAN....how am I gonna fix my ph if I cant eat all the green veggies?? :(

My whole diet is mostly acidic. Out of 5 foods....3 are very acidic.

I don't know what the process is for you to be able to try a new food/drink, but I wonder if you should look into kombucha. It's known to help the body become more alkaline and I've read that it fights candida as well. I'm no expert on it though...I just kind of like it :ph34r: Whole Foods sells raw organic bottled kombucha. They also sell a really weak sugary version, but the raw stuff is good. If you can get past the fact that it looks kind of nasty (like snotty worms floating around) um...it's good to drink LOL.

Its not just sugar that creates an acidic body. The highest acid-forming foods are the artificial sweeteners....(which everyone thinks is so good for them in the sugar free foods), all forms of sugar, anything hydrogenated, molasses, alcohol, apple cider vinegar, white vinegar, chocolate, jam, most canned, processed and microwaveable foods, corn meal, packaged snack foods, soda, coffee, tea, ketchup, mayonaise, mustard, ice cream, etc.

Also high are all animal protein (meats), seafood and eggs.

Snotty worms floating around? :unsure:

Mango, I'm sure I cant drink it right now but I might try it later when I'm tolerating more foods. :) When I was on the candida diet I bought a juicer and was juicing some greens. I actually liked it but I stopped since I react to so much stuff. :(

I know I felt ALOT better eating like that but because of the candida/leaky gut I just developed more intolerances. Hopefully things will improve in this area with time and treatment. :)

OK..we started on foods tonight!!!

OMG.....you wont believe what they started with??? WHEAT. :blink:

I was really bummed and disappointed. It was the first time I felt like I didnt want to bother with the treatment. I told the lady I didnt want to do it because I'm on a strict gluten-free diet and plan to stay that way. I didnt have Anna tonight....it was Bioset lady #2.

The panel was on the table and I felt like my appt. was gonna be a waste. She said I had to do it and that at least it might help out if I get any accidental glutenings. :rolleyes:

Anyways the appt. turned out to be VERY interesting. I'll have to post about it tomorrow cuz I have to go to bed but it was really telling and I'll be staying gluten-free for sure after what I saw tonight. :o

Oh Rachel! Glad to hear it turned out constructive. Can't wait to hear more about it :) How do you feel the day after a treatment? Does it make you feel worse or better in the short term?

Some treatments have made me feel bad (short term) but most treatments have no noticeable affect on how I feel. If I feel bad its usually that I get really tired, irritable and brain-fogged. I've noticed it most after the treatments for candida and molds and when I got treated for chemicals. I felt fine after the wheat panel I had last night. It might have something to do with how much of this stuff is already in my system?? When I feel bad it usually happens right after the treatment....I can feel it when I'm driving home and sometimes I end up feeling wiped out even though I wasnt tired at all prior to the appt. I also have trouble posting my thoughts after some appts because the brain fog is too bad.

I currently have alot of issues with candida and also chemicals but I've been gluten-free for over a year and a half.....maybe that has something to do with not feeling bad after last nights treatment?? :unsure:
