  1. Rotation Diet

    I don't understand how an elimination diet would be different from what I'm doing. I'm already avoiding the foods with known intolerances and avoiding the others as they bother me. Is there another method I'm not aware of?
  2. I have a rather storied medical history, the Reader
  3. My doctor said the meds were ok because it's such a small amount of cornstarch. I'm thinking that the only way to fully heal my gut is to do an elimination diet, and honestly, cutting out corn is a great start. lol I'm not sure which resources are good for advice though. I feel like none of my doctors really know enough about it to guide me through what exactly I need to do. It's not as if leaky gut is an actual diagnosis, perse. So I guess I'm going to go down to the bare bones as far as diet goes and work up from there. I am reading that a pre/probiotic is essential too, but I don't even know where to start for that. I should probably be taking a multivitamin and calcium since dairy is out. I am just feeling really frustrated by this whole ordeal and I'm HUNGRY and that isn't helping because it's making me cranky.
  4. Hey everyone, I have been gluten free for nearly a year now. We're not sure if I actually have celiac disease or not, but regardless, I follow a very strict gluten free diet. I have mitochondrial disease. It is messing with my GI tract and I have "leaky gut" (essentially) now. I have recently been feeling like nearly everything I'm eating I'm reacting to, which I guess wasn't too far from the truth. I saw my mito specialist today and my IgG blood work came back insanely elevated for corn, soy and dairy. He told me my body is exhibiting autoimmune responses to these foods because of my motility issues and I need to eliminate them from my diet for at least 6 months. If we can heal my gut, he thinks I can slowly start to add them back. I'm feeling very overwhelmed right now regarding what I can and cannot eat. I am waiting to hear back from him regarding how strict I need to be with this. Two of my medications and my daily aspirin contain cornstarch. I didn't realize corn is in pretty much everything. Part of the issue is that I have severe fatigue and energy issues from the mitochondrial disease. I need things that are quick and easy to eat. I cannot eat most raw fruits and vegetables due to food-pollen syndrome, but cooked they are ok. Any suggestions? I am feeling really, really overwhelmed.
