I Have A Really Tough Question.

Recommended Posts

Earlier in the week I ate 4 bananas for breakfast. I'm not sure why, but eating that many bananas stripped away all my stomach acid and further production is halted for a few days. My face would become flushed red also. I'm not joking at all. I didn't have any appetite for lunch or dinner. I ate anyways. A hamburger for lunch which made me feel sick and my skin turned pale. I'm not allergic to bananas. This always seems to happen when i consume good amounts of potassium. Apple cider vinegar has the same affect as well as oranges. I get extremely depressed during these days since stomach acid is needed for the production of serotonin.

My only guess is kinda 'out there' but here we go..

It is known that excessive copper in the body(which i have) slows down digestion. And potassium is a synergists (works with) to copper. So perhaps flooding my body with potassium strengthens copper levels thus increasing the side effects of a copper overload. Please help me. I'm only 21 years old, I shouldn't be having low stomach acid occurring like this. I'll continue to lower my possible high copper levels.

Wow! 4 bananas at one sitting is really alot, but I'm not throwing "stones" for last night even though I have been gluten free for a few weeks, I sat down and ate 2 large donuts and toco chips. Why we do this is is beyond me! But, for some reason, we do convince ourselves it's okay at the time.

Yes, in my opinion, you would have a reaction to that much bananas. Too much in yr colan and intestines at one time. One is enough. As far as the hamburger, have you had a food allergy blood test? When I had mine, there were so many things that popped up that I was not aware of that I was allergic too. Or, you could still be having the affects of the bananas... Becare in the meantime, keep a food diary each day w/out fail.......let the past be....let's try again tonite (me included) to get back on our food watch again. Good luck! d

It's the potassium in the bananas. 2 table spoons of apple cider vinegar or a few oranges seem to have the same affect on me. Maybe I will should take some potassium pills and experiment.

Mord, you might want to check with a doctor before you do some experimenting. ;)

Here is some resourse information for you. I'm not sure how much information you will find about Wilson's Disease on a forum specific for Celiac Disease.

Good luck.

Have you been tested for copper by a doctor or are you simply going off of info you have gotten of the net? There are treatments for it.
