I Got One Back!

Recommended Posts

He he he. I've been struggling with a bit of C lately, and it occurred to me that when I ate non-organic sweet potatoes, D was my only symptom. (Organic sweet potatoes don't do this to me.) They didn't bother my psoriasis at all, nor my sleep, brain fog, etc. So I thought, rather than trying to find a laxative that is free of all my "poisons", I'd just go to the grocery store and buy some non-organic sweet potatoes and they would reverse the C.

Well, the next morning after eating a very large one for lunch, everything was normal. No C, no D. The next day I did it again. Everything was normal again.

So now I won't have to drive 60 miles to buy sweet potatoes anymore. I can get them right here in town. A small victory, but it gives me hope that my system is finally settling down. Pretty soon, maybe I'll try a salad! (Who would've thought that the idea of eating a salad could cause someone to celebrate!)

Yeah!

I'm not quite clear. Are you saying that the organic sweet potatoes bothered you and the conventionally grown sweet potatoes didn't?

I don't think that I have tried that recently and maybe I should.

Congrats on getting something back!

I get C and was just thinking the other day that I wished I knew of something that gave me D so I could use it to my advantage. ;)

No, sorry I wasn't clear. Organic sweet potatoes have never given me any problems at all. Regular sweet potatoes never gave me any of my main symptoms (psoriasis, insomnia, brain fog) but they DID give me D - even though gluten never gave me D.

At first I thought maybe my body couldn't handle the fiber in sweet potatoes, but when I tried organic and had no D at all, I assumed it was pesticides. Whatever it was, it seems to have gone away.

When I went to the nutritionist a few months back she said my body was in hyperdrive and so sensitive that I was reacting to almost everything. She said once I started to heal, my body would settle down and I'd be able to start adding back foods that I couldn't tolerate. It looks like that is finally happening!

What I am going to do is start adding foods that ONLY gave me D. I won't try regular potatoes (Oh! How I miss them!) because they make the psoriasis flare. I can't eat nightshades I guess. But things like leafy greens that brought on almost instant D, well, one brave day when I am going to be home all day, I'm going to eat a great big old salad and enjoy every bite!

Thank you for clearing that up. Too bad, I had problems with organic sweet potatoes and I was hoping I might do O.K. with conventional. I'm growing my own this year and we'll see if it was something used in cultivation or not.
