  1. That's very interesting Juliebove, thank you for sharing. I couldn't agree more about the diet.
  2. Hello everyone. I would like to state that after almost a year gluten-free, DF, I still was not healing and feeling more fatigued than ever. I have been doing research and I will post some information specifically when I remember where I saved it. (Foggy Brain) That said, (for me) I am finding that all starch carbohydrates as in, breads, pastas, snacks, anything of that type are hindering (MY) recovery. It seems that the bad bacteria in the gut are kept very happy when given any of these types of foods even though they are gluten free. The research and my experience tells me that following a mostly Paleo diet and gluten free I am just beginning to see a difference after all this time. I am hopeful that once I have healed I might be able to introduce a bit of these foods into my diet, of course time will tell. Finding the right supplements was crucial as was recommended to me by senior members. I don't know if this will help anyone, but I felt I should throw it out there. Finding this out I think is going to truly save my life. Best of luck, well wishes and feel better soon. Best wishes and feel better soon everyone.
  3. \ Hi... I would like to share a website with everyone that I found to be extremely helpful. The vitamins and supplements are free of everything. No gluten, no binders, fillers, and the best form of b12 (methylcobalamin). I have purchased the Emerald Labs supplements from this website with great satisfaction. I have found I am allergic to so many things every other brand I've tried in the past year has failed until I found this one. Happy to pass on the information. https://www.shopnaturalproducts.com/index.php?route=common/home Songbird

    Thank you to everyone who posted on this topic. It was a great resource and of great comfort to me. Much appreciated.
  6. Can't thank you enough for posting this information!!!
  7. Balance And Falling

    Very much appreciate you adding your experience USF1970. Have you found the source of your glutening?
  8. Balance And Falling

    Thank you for sharing this article very much. I sure have a lot to think about and a lot to take in.

    Thanks PricklyPear... wow me too with the door frames. Thanks for sharing and for letting me know it came back fast when glutened. I sure don't plan on that happening but I'm sure none of us does either. Hope you are feeling better now.

    Oh I couldn't agree with you more. I was so good to myself this weekend. Instead of pushing it I went on one motorcycle ride (I was on the back) and no more bike riding but will swim and spa tomorrow. I like that idea of our body "rebooting" itself. I took to day and decided not to go on the 2nd lengthy motorcycle ride and just went for a nice car ride, then a walk and had a nice afternoon and enjoyed some garden veggies and time with a friend. I'm feeling very very lucky today. Your support is really great and helping me tremendously. Thank you IrishHeart! I look forward to hearing from everyone of course! Such amazing people here it's very humbling and very heartwarming!

    Just a little note... I am fortunate in that because of my migraines having been so severe for so long that I was able to see a very prominent specialist and did have scans CT and MRI and many things were ruled out... and yes "IrishHeart" they found nothing up there too!!! I will look to some new doctors to shed some light just to cover all the bases as recommended. I sure do feel lucky to have found out so many answers to so many questions so far, thank you to everyone who has responded thus far. The difference it has made is amazing.
  12. Balance And Falling

    IH it is totally amazing to me what you have experienced and endured. Means so much to me to be able to read and share your experience. Thank you very much for sharing. You are truly helping me before I do some very similar things and it's more than appreciated. I would have gone out and been a crazy person on my bicycle, falling only knows how many more times and possibly causing injuries. Now I know to walk and swim and WAIT and be patient and heal. Then take it one day at a time. That kind of insight is so invaluable. The peace of mind it brings, a true gift. My safety? well that is immeasurable. Thanks with all my Irish Heart I'm so thrilled you are doing so much better!!!

    Thank you so much for sharing such a heartwarming story Ravenwoodglass. So much you have been through and such triumph too!! I can only imagine your excitement at running up those stairs and it gives me such hope... Much appreciated!! From one grateful crooked smile to another!
  14. Balance And Falling

    IrishHeart... I can't thank you enough for your entire reply. I cried, I laughed. I'm so grateful. Was like re-living my life through your experience almost. Thank you so much for sharing, and caring. This has meant so much to me. Know that I am smiling with all my heart!

    Thank you RiceGuy... I have started on B12 so far and D3 (am looking for supplements I am not sensitive to) and will add these to the list. Very much appreciate your suggestions. I only use olive oil at this point... I had no idea that these issues could stem from nutritional deficiencies. I have a lot to learn it seems. Glad to have this information.
