Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Oh, and as for what I eat...I also eat some stuff I shouldn't, but here's a typical day:

Breakfast: either turkey sausage (but haven't in a while cuz WF has been out of them), or turkey slices (but haven't in a couple of weeks cuz WF has been out of them) or bacon (I know, I know, but WF has been out of EVERYTHING lately)

Midmorning snack: hard boiled eggs (with a little mayo, which is not on the candida diet)

Lunch: ground beef or turkey with broccoli, sometimes half an apple if there is fruit at work

Early Dinner: beef or turkey or duck with sauteed green beans and garlic and sometimes I through slivered almonds in there too

Snack: Frozen peaches blended into a smoothie with almond or cashew butter and my evening supplements

Sometimes I have one more snack and that would be cashews, almonds or walnuts or sometimes turkey slices if WF would ever get the stupid things back in :P

Sometimes I wonder if you can molden yourself. I think it was mold from maybe the almond butter I ate late night or the left over avacado. HUM.

Ummmm...yeah....I think you molded yourself. :P

I get molded from almond butter but avocados are HEINOUS for me....I cant eat avocado at all without getting molded...LEFTOVER is like 100 x worse!! :blink:

So yeah...I'm betting on mold in this situation.

Also with the rumbling, bubbly tummy.....I only get that when I eat something that is causing problems. It very rarely happens anymore but when it does....I know for sure its from something new I've eaten or from a supplement I'm taking. For me it almost always has to do with mold.

Dont eat leftovers.....avocados must get really moldy because I've had alot of problems with them and even moreso if I saved half and ate it later on. It sucks because I LOVE avocados.

When I eat avocados....I feel sick and I lose weight. :(

I was wondering if I am to do the elimination thing should I also stop charcoal, whey protein and vitamin and mineral supplements?

Are you taking vitamins?? :huh:

Vitamins made me really really sick...lots of weight loss from vitamins. It might not be the same for you but *most* people with candida and mercury toxicity dont do well with multi-vitamins.

The B vitamins contain yeast...they are derived from fungus. I dont take any vitamins....I also do horribly with Vitamin C for some reason.

I've been tested for all this stuff with BioSET and ART but so far no vitamin supplements are "safe" for me to take. My Dr. told me most people with sensitivities like mine cannot tolerate B vitamins.

I have the same problems with digestive enzymes....which are also from mold.

I wouldnt stop taking the charcoal....you need it to absorb the toxins. I would stop everything else...let your system settle down and then add in the whey protein (but not too much of it).....dont add in anything else for a few days so you can see how you're doing with the whey.

Write it all down so you can remember how you're feeling...then try adding something new and continue to write down how you feel. You'll get the hang of it and you'll start to be able to see what things are bothering you and what kind of symptoms they cause.

Sometimes it might take a couple days for symptoms to appear so thats why you wanna wait before adding anything new. One thing at a time....give it a few days to make sure if its safe for you or not.

I would mostly be concerned about things conatining mold since you have bad candida and seem to be very sensitive to the molds.

You used an emoticon ... you ARE feeling better today!!! :D

Yeah...I noticed that too!!! :D

3) It was the avocado. No doubt.

Don't even conSIDer even THINKing about a left-over avocado when there's a mold issue. Sucks, but eat it all or toss the rest.

Yup....I agree.

I posted here lots of times about eating avocados and getting sick. I was baffled for the longest time...did not know until recently that avocados were moldy!! :o

I tried to eat them for maintaining weight (and cuz they're yummy :) )...but noooo...I would always end up losing weight.....WTH?? :blink:

Tom I'm sorry- call it Lyme brain but EVERY time I read SAX somehow I see an "E" instead of an "A". It makes for even funnier reading :rolleyes::ph34r:

LOL :lol:

Well, then, I'm obliged to tell a tale for your amusement alone.

I started w/ the SaX in 5th grade. By Jr High I was getting pretty good at SaX. I almost quit, but then got my 1st girlfriend directly due to my SaX skills. She played flute, but it was a school assembly, performing solo SaX in front of EVERYbody that piqued her interest.

Some of my fondest memories are participating in a high-school SaX quartet.

When someone couldn't make it, we'd make do w/ a SaX trio. (Ok this part wasn't true)

I suppose thru H.S. I might have been referred to as 'that SaX guy'.

Actually narrowed down my choice of colleges to 2, specifically for the opportunity to possibly be a professional SaXman. <lmao>

I could continue but I won't. I need to eat.

not sure but I think there's been malfeasance involved - :o:ph34r::lol: and I am waiting for the telltale smell of a dead body or something :P:lol:

:lol: I can totally see you peeking through the windows...checking out the new Stepford neighbors.

It reminds me of Disturbia. :P

People are disappearing in the night... :o yup sounds like Disturbia is creeping into Stepford. :ph34r:

Susan....I dont think we need to worry about your safety though. I'm pretty sure you've got that handled. :P

*process*, as opposed to a pharmaceutical whose benefits . . . ..argh . . I suddenly can't finish that sentence to my satisfaction.

Is that what's called "dingo-ing"?

Welcome to Lyme cl... :P:lol:

....

I don't give up the latte because, first of all, it's 240 calories I don't have to EAT, secondly, it's basically my only poor food choice. I refuse to be THAT good. :P If I stop drinking lattes, I'm starting back on martinis. ;)

....

:lol::lol::lol: You know what they say about martinis, just have one because after two you'll be under the table and after three you'll be under the waiter. :ph34r:

Hey everyone I started my 1st thread!

Or at least 1st since aught-four.

http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?s...c=35247&hl=

It's about neurogastroenterology(sp?) and a Columbia U. Dr. and author who was strangely on The Colbert Report last night.

The show is rerun once more, either @9:30p or 8:30p on the Comedy Channel or Comedy Central - whatever it's called.

Very odd to see on a comedy show but it relates HUGELY to us!!

I will check it out, thanks.

...

Re: no appetite - been there. Far too often I was too weak to make anything and would either have almond butter or nothing. Fell asleep on the couch hungry.

....

I love almond butter and have rachelled jars of it, there were times I knew I needed to get food in me but I was repulsed at the idea of eating and had no energy to cook, I could always manage to eat a few spoonfuls.

My daily diet is lots of meat, poultry, fish - a little smoked salmon, some eggs, vegetables -greens, lots of chard and kale, onions, garlic, cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini, leeks, occasionally sweet potato, almond butter, walnuts and rinne bars which I am trying to cut back on. :ph34r: I also drink ginger tea, taheebo tea :ph34r: and licorice tea. I've been using coconut oil more for cooking and the olive oil as a condiment. I drink plenty of spring water with lemon or lime in it, if I remember to.

Part of the stool testing I'm getting done this week includes candida testing ... so all this may change if that comes out positive. :blink:

:o

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you Carla. ;)

I dont really find the stool tests to be accurate.....heck two of my stool tests were totally normal!! :blink:

Yeah... I couldnt possibly have worse fungal issues (unless maybe I was dying) and yet the stool test is normal. <_<

WTH is that?? :rolleyes:

Hmmmmm... could it be cuz all my fungus is tied up with metals?? :unsure:

....and a good portion of the fungus is living it up in my head. :rolleyes:

....guess the tests could've been neg. because the "beasties" just doesnt wanna leave this nice toxic world I've created for them. :rolleyes:

My blood antibody test showed something entirely different from my stool test.

Everything is just "stuck" inside me. :angry:

Thats why I feel alot worse w/out my charcoal...the toxins just continue to circulate. :(

No, Silly, anywhereville, USA!! I've been to Phoenix, you have these areas, too!!

Yes but I always know where the unequivocally greatest local coffee shops are - where by definition the beans are roasted on the premises.

My last 3 residences I've had them not too far. Best was just down the block. Can't say I'm positive they all decaffed w/ swiss process. Just 2 of the 3 I'd be certain of.

Starbucks is so often just a liquid candybar. (No accusation here! No idea what u drink and my god I learned my lesson)

A black coffee from starbucks usually tastes burnt. It can't be helped trying to roast darker in a mass-production environment. Too many subtleties in beans.

The hand-roasted w/ care and artistry process allows the roast-meister/artist to continually check the progress. I've seen it.

:P:P

LOL, you are definately bringing back band days ... mainly the wacky, umm, I mean great people in band. I STILL keep in touch with all my old band friends! They are as wacky as you!

:lol::lol::lol: You know what they say about martinis, just have one because after two you'll be under the table and after three you'll be under the waiter. :ph34r:

:lol::lol:

I haven't heard that one. I've heard martinis are like breasts ... one isn't enough and three are too many.

I read yours to Morgan. She was speechless ... she said, "That's dirty ... that's REALLY dirty!"

:o

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you Carla. ;)

I dont really find the stool tests to be accurate.....heck two of my stool tests were totally normal!!

My doc is mainly trying to rule out parasites, bacteria, etc. The pa is concerned about my constant GI problems (which I have NOT had since the two coffee enemas!).

Yes but I always know where the unequivocally greatest local coffee shops are

I do, too, but it's quite a drive ... it's not in my town ... I have to get on the freeway and drive into Cincy for that. Worth it once in a while, but not daily.

Starbucks is so often just a liquid candybar. (No accusation here! No idea what u drink and my god I learned my lesson)

decaf grande organic latte. Not as good as Italy ... but it's a lot closer.

OK....OMG...My sauna is HERE!!! :o

Enjoy your FIVE minutes! No Racheling!!

It's all a matter of perspective, isn't it? I can almost eat anything, my problems lie elsewhere.

... but I can't cart all the liquid stuff with me, so that'll just have to be taken close to this other stuff.

In a similar situation I found a solution.

I'd use the little ~2oz plastic bottles I found at target near the sample-size products like shampoo or whatever.

They come empty. I was at first looking for a bottle of some innocuous something that I'd pour out.

There were 2 different types of tops, one much preferred as far as leakage prevention - so if u see something like this be sure to look. I think one type was like a flip-thing like on sunscreen maybe?

Avocados are in the 'edible' side of the ledger in, I think, every strict anti-candida diet I've ever seen.

As far as mold inside fresh produce, I remember only melons. Can't be a ripe melon w/out it.

I never was much of a drinker.... :ph34r:

Sounds like you and Mia could take turns coming over here and cooking. Bev needs help too so you guys can rotate between households. :P

The hand-roasted w/ care and artistry process allows the roast-meister/artist to continually check the progress. I've seen it.

When I drank mocha's I went to a place called Batdorf and Bronsons. They are local but don't know if they've gone out of state or not.

I used to get those at least 3x a week. Talk about sugar. I had to drop the 1/2 shot of espresso I was getting and even that gave me a headache with quiting.

Now I'm into my enjoy life chocolate chips. Oh, they have chocolate liquor in them not chocolate liqueur. Don't know if there is a difference though.

Must go get into this thing.....(which sorta resembles a triangular spaceship :huh:)....be back later.... B)

Good luck........hope you stuck with your 5 minutes. :unsure:

Lisa.......My youngest was very constipated as a baby (after we started her on solid foods), so we eliminated potatoes, rice, bananas, and things like that, and gave her lots of "stone" fruit, like peaches,pears, plums, apricots, etc. I've been told by other moms that the stone fruits worked way better than the prescription meds the doctor kept giving them. It certainly seemed to work for her!

I'll have to keep this in mind if we ever have problems with C in this family.

Rinne--my daily diet very closely resembles yours :)

My GI told me to use charcoal--but I'm scared because of how filtered water affects me :unsure:

Hey Rachel--how was that sauna? :D

Oh, they have chocolate liquor in them not chocolate liqueur. Don't know if there is a difference though.

There is a difference--there's no alcohol in the chips. ;)

Good thing, too, or I'd be schnockered most of the time :DB)

I have been reading along but posting less. I have been feeling bad and also jsut feeling reallly emotionally drained although thats probabally more of a reason to post becasue you guys always seem to make me feel bettter!!!

Bev-

yes everyone was right I never have an appetite. I spend most of my time tyring to eat though - so you can imagine how fun my life is (sad face)

What I do to make it easier is even though I am not hungry I still won't just eat anything I always take time preparing my food and making it taste really good so I can enjoy it as much as possible. Also definitly cooked food nothing raw and mushier food as opposed to stuff you ahve to chew alot goes down easier and is gentler on my system so that helps too.

My diet right now is defintly not condusive to the candida doet but I really don't care it is so hard for me to find food I can tolerate so whatever My body is willing to take is what I give it.

My usual day is

breakfast- Carrot juice, and these biscuits I make they are very low in carbs sort of like a cookie I use sun flower butter in them and millet flour and just a few other ingredients.

lunch- I make homemade spreads from seeds(which I roast ) vegees (pureed) and olive oil. I spread this on sprouted corn tortillas with thinly sliced cucumber.

lately I ahve tried to reintroduce almond butter so have been having that for lunch as well.

Dinner- I do best with a balance of vegees/ carbs/ and protein-

so I make pasta with fish or meat and vegees. I make a homemade pizza crust which I top with vegees and ground lamb ( no cheese), yeast free bread with smoke salmon and vegees, (well those are a few things)

\I sometimes allow myself soy ice cream but only this one brand that is not that high in sugar and has probiotics in it.

throughout the day I usualy have carrot juice, some pear juice(but only one brand -Ceres- I dillute this with water) the only ingredient is pear not citric acid or anything else like that., I have some rice milk the creaminess is settling for my stomach . Lately I am adding some coconut water too becasue it is high in postasium and a great source of electrolytes which I know I am lacking.

Does anyone have problems with lights and bright lights on the freeway at night.

Yes, it's a very typical Lyme symptom. I'm not sure what else causes it.

For a while, I couldn't even have the cordless phone plugged in at night because of the light it put off ... I was very sensitive to light. It's getting better.

My GI told me to use charcoal--but I'm scared because of how filtered water affects me :unsure:

But wasn't it the coconut in the filtered water that bothered you? If so, I would think the charcoal would be okay.

If you don't want to use charcoal, what about chlorella?

Mia, good to hear from you ... sorry you're feeling crummy. I don't know how you find the motivation to prepare that food with no appetite!!! I make myself eat, but usually it's whatever's the easiest. That's why I always go to Wild Oats to buy lunch!

I'm starting back on some of my meds today. I don't think it's a good idea to just jump into all of them, so I'm starting half today, half tomorrow, then the supplements the next day. Even that may be too ambitious!

We won't even talk about how I started out the morning spilling my sample and trying to scoop it all back in the container. :ph34r: Trust me, herxing from the meds would only ADD to that experience.

Rachel, how did that sauna go? Did you survive????
