Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

You guys have purple glittery bats here? Whatever you all are on, I want some! Unless you are just smoking spinach. I'm sorry but that's just too weird :blink: .

We made them cute so I wouldn't be tempted to relocate them because someone didn't like bats or was afraid of them or something. :lol:

I am going to the beach right now to meditate.

Wish I could help more with your situation, but this part sure sounds heavenly!

Lisa, if the juice is fruit juice, I guess it could be the sugar. I don't know.

The thing that stood out to me is the chlorella. That's used for heavy metal chelation. If you aren't taking something to eliminate the chelated metals, they just relocate in your body. I know the metals also affect candida. Rachel knows more about this stuff ... but the chlorella sounds like it could be a problem to me.

Dear rinne,

Thank you for the compliments! ;) As far as the reward from the lawsuit with Gluten, Inc. goes, our president will decide how to use it. Some of it, of course will probably need to go to care for the protective geese. The purple glittery bats also have special needs. :lol:

Meanwhile, I must take on another lawsuit. We deserve compensation from Auxigro! The geese volunteered a couple of their members to testify on our president's behalf. They know that this evil company has been trying to sneak in this deadly toxin! Our town will not stand for it! :angry: Justice must be served!

Dear CarlaB,

I am sorry you have been having it so rough. Those herxes suck. We hope that you will begin to recover soon. Gosh, I cannot believe how many pills you have to take! How do you have room for food? :o

Also, I am guessing your husband's uncle may have had Candida. Sugars in veggies and fruits bother Candida and encourage its growth. He may have become drunk from the carbohydrates like Charlie Swaart, The Drinkless Drunk did. His story was told in The Yeast Connection: A Medical Breakthrough.

Dear tabasco32,

If I had to guess what causes these symptoms, I would say:

Allergy to chicken and eggs

The natural molds present in seeds, nuts, dried fruits, and regular fruits

I also have some scary news about yeast I just recently learned. On another thread, someone told us the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture sprays our fruit with Candida to keep bugs away! :huh:

No wonder my nose runs when I eat them and I get gas! The juice you are making can be the carbohydrates that feed the yeast. This causes your reaction.

Another thing to be careful with is mold in your home. Even newer homes can have it. Toxic mold is a scary thing. Make sure there is not mold running around. It can hide behind baseboards, behind walls, etc. Carpet is another place it tends to go to. When you have Candida, you will be highly sensitive to it in any form, and these foods with even small amounts will irritate your symptoms and cause reactions due to the environmental exposure.

Dear Rachel,

I have smelled mold like that as well! It is so disgusting! It makes you want to gag! Mold does not always smell musty. Sometimes, it smells like something died. :( Hopefully, they will get that taken care of.

Dear Claire,

No, we do not smoke spinach! However, magic shrooms have been reported sprouting about in Rachelville. Do not disturb them. The fairies get angry when you do that! They like to sleep late. :lol: And, yes, we do have purple glittery bats! Their poop is pink glittery balls, and smells like berries. They can be kind of clumsy.

My favorite, Bongo, ran into the door today. It startled him, and he pooped on the door. :P Then, my waiter from my restaurant comes in my office, and asks "Why does it smell like berries in here?" :lol:

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

Just wanted to say goodmorning and I hope that everyone is having a good day....I'm still here and reading! Earlier this I wasn't doing so hot, but the past three days have generally been pretty nice :). I'm in for another IV today. xoxo

Hi Laura :)

Good to hear you're doing a bit better--good luck today with your IV treatment.

I have to tell you--I just love your new picture B)

Thanks, Patti. I was having a good day recently and Eric had a new camera. :)

I've gained and maintained some weight recently, so I feel like I look healthier. I've gained 10 lbs since my "low point" in the fall. Its taken 4+ months to do so, so its been a really slow process, but I'm happy that I have a little bit more to work with. ;)

That is probably true. I think most alcoholics have candida. He also has leukemia and is on his last stretch of his battle, so the candida is a mute point. :(

Laura, congrats on the weight gain!

That wouldn't surprise me. My doc said they have coated wheat kernels with mercury to keep them from molding before growing. Don't know if they still do that though.

:lol:

The bats eat the insects! We made them pretty bats!

We don't smoke spinach, we put it in gluten-free brownies and eat it! :lol::lol:

I though chlorella moved the metals out of the body. :unsure:

Hey NGG,

I think I need your help on another law suit. Has anyone been keeping up with the pet food recall saga? Seems that they found rat poison in the food. Something clicked in my head today, and I've been thinking about Ouiser. I'm wondering if when he was at the vet getting tested for his urinary tract infection, if they fed him contaminated food :o ?! Not that I can bring him back now, but I was sad to think he might have been poisoned. I tried calling my vet today, but couldn't get a hold of them. I'm going over there tomorrow to interrogate them. They think the rat poison could have been contaminating the wheat gluten!

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070323/ap_on_...pet_food_recall

STUPID WHEAT GLUTEN :angry: !

Just another reason not to eat it :angry::angry: .

Chlorella doesnt chelate. It coats the gut and moves mercury out of the gut....you need a chelator to pull mercury out of tissues and once they get to the gut chlorella can move them out. Chlorella is a "binder"...not a chelator.

The NDF has broken down chlorella...so it actually passes through the gut and binds with metals elsewhere. Cilantro is what "mobilizes" the mercury and the chlorella is the binder.

Chlorella is an important part of the systemic mercury elimination program, as approximately 90% of the mercury is eliminated through the stool. Using large doses of chlorella facilitates fecal mercury excretion. After the intestinal mercury burden is lowered, mercury will more readily migrate into the intestine from other body tissues from where chlorella will effectively remove it.

Chlorella is not tolerated by about one-third of people due to gastrointestinal distress.

Cilantro mobilizes mercury, aluminum, lead and tin stored in the brain and in the spinal cord and moves it into the connective tissues. The mobilized mercury appears to be either excreted via the stool, the urine, or translocated into more peripheral tissues.

The mechanism of action is unknown. Cilantro alone often does not remove mercury from the body; it often only displaces the metals form intracellularly or from deeper body stores to more superficial structures, from where it can be easier removed with the previously described agents. The use of cilantro with DMSA or DMPS has produced an increase in motor nerve function.

The NDF is a little different because of the smaller particles leaving the gut...the metals are excreted through urine rather than stool. Normal chlorella stays in the gut and much larger doses are needed...the metals are then excreted through stool.

I'm thinking of trying some normal chlorella. If I can tolerate it at least it might do some good for any mercury that may be present in my gut. I'm not ready to chelate (NDF is on hold for now) but if my gut is clear it will allow for more metals to be moved through the gut....I think this is what Dr. Amy wants.

I'm gonna go to WF tonight and pick some up. ;)

Anna sells chlorella too. I got mine from her and that way she can test it before you even buy it, although you've probably already been to WF, lol.

Hi everyone!! Busy day today here! Proabably won't be on a whole bunch this weekend. I have to cram my choir song for Sunday, plus our little group is singing two songs and, well, after rehearsals last night, um, I need to cram those songs too. :lol:

Oh Claire, I sure hope your baby wasn't poisoned! :(

I havent gone yet but I'm getting ready to. :P

Yeah...I could be getting ready to go for hours :rolleyes: ....procrastination...I tell ya.....I'm gonna be sooooo efficient once I get the poisons outta me. ;)

The old Rachel never procrastinated. B)

I'm impatient and wanna start the chlorella...I dont wanna wait till my appt. on Thurs. :ph34r:

WF has always been good about returning stuff I've bought and couldnt take...even if it was open...and even if I dont have the receipt.

I have two other items to return that didnt test well with ART. One was open and one wasnt.

I'll have Anna test it and if I cant have it I'll return it.....heck I'm at WF like 3 nights a week anyway. :rolleyes:

I think they all know me by now. I'm the girl who buys the same 5 foods every time I shop. :lol:

A couple months ago a girl came through my checkstand at work. She leans over and says "Sooo...Rachel...why arent you working at Whole Foods??" B)

I kinda freaked out at first....I was thinking "How does she know I practically live at Whole Foods??" :unsure:

I still dont know how she knew...I've never seen her before or since. :huh:

Anyway...she was trying to recruit me to WF :lol: ...said she knew I was the "dairy girl"...she checked out my dept....was impressed...said I could make more $$ at WF if I'm interested. She said I could get 30% off my food!! :o

Heck....that alone was enough to get me interested :) I know they were ranked in the top 5 companies to work for.

It sounded pretty good.....something to maybe look into once I get better. ;)

I dont know where the girl came from though....she doesnt work at either of the Whole Foods I shop at. :unsure:

Donna....if you find her at your WF.... can you tell her "Yeah...I'm interested....can she hold me a spot for like 2009??" :lol::lol:

So Rachel, are you going to apply for a job at Whole Foods? I think you should go for it girl! That girl you ran into there is definitely a sign ;) .

Well, I was in the mood for a beer, so I went to the store I know that carries gluten-free beer. It's been a heck of a week, and I figure I better have a beer now while I can before I get pregnant! They had Redbridge, so I was psyched to try it. All I have to say is WOW! This tastes like real beer! It's definitely better than New Grist, which is the only other kind of gluten-free beer you can get in this granola town. I know a lot of you can't drink beer, but when you can, this is a good gluten-free beer to try.

I've been thinking about what role I'd like to fill in Rachelville, and I've decided I want to be the town granola. You know, the girl with the dreadlocks who hangs out on the lawn downtown wearing some flowery outfit and playing hacky sack. I would say that I'd be smoking clove cigarettes, but that's probably too 80's and not cool now anyways. I'll settle for spinach brownies, though they sound really gross to me :P . Hey, why do you think my hair is green (see my avatar is you have no clue what I'm talking about)? When I'm not hanging out, I could be working at the town co-op (do we have one?) at the juice bar or something. Or maybe I'd be working at the community supported agriculture farm that has the guard geese, and composting pink purple glittery bat guano. Yeah, that sounds absolutely cosmic dude :P .

That would be great Rachel, I can see why you would stay where you are at for now but just think how wonderful it could be to work with others who feel the same way about food you do.

Claire, although I have been neglecting my duties for a while, I did run the juice bar and would love to have you work there. :) As for being a granola girl, why not?

Thanks for the info on the chlorella. I'm wondering how much cilantro to take? I've been making a pesto with it and serving it along side a variety of things. It is really good in a simple soup I made with chick peas in it. Do people take it in capsules?

Dear Claire,

We were talking about the poisoned dog food on another thread. Go to the OMG....No one actually eats this stuff right? Thread. Jerry K started it. We were discussing the horrors of gluten free breads! :lol: You will find it in the Coping With section.

I believed it was arsenic poisoning from the beginning. I think it is smart to check with the vet. The site should have a list of all the foods that were recalled. Our dog has seizures, so the last thing he needs is to have more wrong! I think he is being poisoned, but we need to run a tox panel to see. He licks everything all the time. This includes wood. Many wood treatments have copper arsenate in them. His seizures do not run in his line, we know because my aunt owns the sire and dame. No other dogs she has bred have had this trouble. He also did not respond to Phenobarbitol. In fact, it seemed to make it worse.

Dart also had high bialary acid levels. This could be a sign of gallbladder trouble. When he shakes, he cries in pain and his stomach is rigid. Poisoning can cause that. I also suggested that a food allergy to gluten can cause this, but naturally my parents ignored it. As for the poisonous dog food, I have a feeling a class action lawsuit will be filed before long.

The thing is, people are going to have to prove he purchased the food that was contaminated, and that may include doing an autopsy on the deceased pets. They could have avoided this mess a long time ago if they would have done biopsies on these animals. That is a better way to identify the source.

You could be the granola person! That would be cool! How about a tie-died shirt to go with your green dreads? That would be groovy! The bat poo definitely needs to be used for a double purpose.

Fertilizer would be good. ;)

Sincerely,

Dear CarlaB,

I agree that alcoholics have overgrowths of Candida. My grandfather and great-grandfather both suffered with this. My best friend's grandfather was also an alcoholic. Not only that, he was a schizophrenic. There are many links to this and Candida.

It is so sad to hear about your hubby's uncle. Leukemia is an awful disease. My freshman year of high school, a friend of mine had it. It was stage four. Amazingly, by a miracle, he went into remission within a few months.

I hope to hear from Bart again soon. By the end of this year, if he makes it, he will officially have beaten Leukemia! I did not know until he told me that it is ten years instead of the usual five for that. I thought it was five like all of the other kinds. I really hope he makes it!

Dear Laura,

I am so glad you have gained some weight! Congratulations! I wish I could lose some. I am working on it, but you know how it is. I used to be like you where I had trouble keeping weight on. Hopefully, these new exercises will help. We will see!

Dear Andrea,

AAAACKKKK!!!! Mercury on grains now? They put that stuff in everything too! Why can't people just leave things alone! Like we don't have enough Alzheimer's in this country. You know the number has shot up to 5 Million now?

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

I hope your dog hasn't been poisoned. He doesn't sound like he's doing too good. I agree that the gluten in the food could be causing him problems though.

Nope, I'm multitasking...listening to a "part" tape my friend made for me so I can learn my part while I'm typing this. :lol:

Okay, BioSET files...

I got Anna today which I was really glad...it was a good session. First of all she talked for a long time about my "burning skin". She had called it some kind of neuralgia a few weeks ago and today called it peripheral neuropathy. She looked up some stuff on the Internet and said she thought it was related to shingles. I had shingles somewhere around 1999 give or take a year. So, she tested me for it and sure enough it was definitely a problem. She said that taking B vitamins would help, so she grabbed a bunch of Bs and tested me to see if I can take them. I have 3 different kind of B Vitamins--one liquid and two types of capsules. :( I'm scared of B vitamins, they don't tend to sit well with me...but she said my body REALLY WANTS them...when she tested the different ones, she was actually shocked at how much my body wanted them. Unfortunately one of them has fructose in it. :angry: I guess I'll have to cut out some of the pieces of bumble bar I've been having, lol.

She retested Lyme just to double check to make sure the neuropathy wasn't from that. It was absolutely clean...not a reaction to a single vial.

We worked on phenolics(sp?) today to prepare me for foods. So in the next week or two I get to work on FOODS!!! I'm so darned excited about that, lol. It wasn't bad...I didn't have a lot of vials this time...I had a large glass but it was only half full. She also said that this should help with my itchy legs, which got a whole bunch better after I stopped eating the stuff she said was bad, but still itch when I eat something I shouldn't.

After foods she wants to do something about metals chelation, but that will be after foods and everything is done.

I also got more chlorella and she retested me for that...she wants me to take 2 tsp a day. She said that will help detox my colon from a lot of stuff.

Sounds like you got a lot out of this appointment. How exciting that you get to start foods soon. :D

That's interesting about the shingles still causing problems. Keep us posted on the b-vitamins. Should be ok if she tested you for them.

I'm seriously considering selling all my custom model horses :o so I can take Seth to bioset. Poor baby was subjected to so much while I was pregnant. I also want to do Talitha and the rest of us but selling the horses would allow me to start anyway. I need to sell some to make up for the 2 days hubby was off of work while his truck was fixed. They don't pay for anything but a week vacation which he doesn't get again til June.

I'll be listing my first batch of horses tonight on ebay.

I use to work at Whole Foods. Go figure I use to make pizzas their. I didn't like it though hard work and little pay. Who would to think 4 years later this is the only place I would be able to buy my food. I never even ate or bought groceries their when I was well even with to 30% off and I don't know why. My cheap self went to safeway sales and such. I use to eat the 4 cheese pizza for lunch with a vanilla cherry creme soda. mmmmmm I miss that. oh well.
