Discontinued Taking Tylenol, Want To Start Paleo

6 posts in this topic

Folks,

I thought I'd stopped ingesting anything with soy but I was terribly wrong. Somehow we ended up with a lot of soy products in our house. In addition, I found out Tylenol has stearic acid which is a derivative of soy. It also dawned on me that Tylenol is full of chemicals (duh!). This must be the benefit to having a clearer mind. I've been on a steady stream of over-the-counter painkillers for over 10 years :(. How could I have missed this?

Having been off of Tylenol for a few days now, I can tell you that it is disconcerting to actually feel everything that's going on in my body. My husband tells me that I am definitely improving. When I consider that, at one time, I was in bed most days, I would have to agree. The sensations in my body are distressing, but I know it's good to be fully aware of how our bodies react to things.

Yesterday I cooked with coconut oil and reacted to that. I've noticed in the past that my stomach feels funny after having coconut and I don't know if it's because it's a nut (I can't eat nuts) or if it's something else. Coconut doesn't make me break out like other nuts do so I thought maybe I could get away with eating it. It is causing neurological symptoms. Either that, or I'm just feeling the symptoms more now because I'm off of the Tylenol. Needless to say, today I'll be buying ghee.

Anyway, I'd like to know more about the Paleo diet. Does anyone have a good cookbook they can recommend? I'm no longer eating gluten-free products, nuts, corn, soy, gluten or dairy. Also, any suggestions on easy to grab foods would be helpful (like bananas). Today, I am replacing coffee with green tea.

It's a good thing I was completely ignorant of what this process would entail when I took up the gluten-free banner. It is a crazy ride. All I can say is, my poor body and the abuse it took while I was weak and gullible enough to rely on my dreamteam of doctors who know NOTHING about Celiac! My husband wants me to find a doctor in Functional Medicine. They seem to be all about environmental toxins, food and autoimmune diseases.

This turned out to be more of a blurt. Any help with Paleo easy to grab foods would be appreciated. It's always helpful to hear others' experiences with all of this.

These learning curves are making me weary. At least I'm on the road though.

Cali

I just went through Tylenol withdrawal. I was taking the recommended dosage & my doctor told me I could do that safely for life. BS!!!!

Yesterday I gave up coffee too but today, I'm drinking my java.

We have a great Paleo Book that we enjoy a lot, it is called Paleo Comfort Foods by Julie and Charles Mayfield.   I have a website I just made the BEST cake I have ever eaten, it is http://www.primalpalate.com/category/recipes.   Also I like a website called punchfork, on this webstie you can choose your diet type (glueten free, vegitarian, paleo) and it will search the world wide web for any reciepe that fits that diet type.

I'm doing the Whole30 diet right now, which is a really strict version of paleo - no dairy, legumes, sugar, artificial sweeteners, alcohol, white potatoes, grains of any type or manufactured oils (olive oil, coconut oil, animal fats like lard, and ghee are ok - things like canola, soybean, sunflower are not).  They've got a book - but I've mostly been using the website, which has a big forum and a lot of recipe ideas.  They also have a special autimmune protocol version of the diet, which eliminates nuts, eggs and nightshades (I think) in addition to the above.

 

Website is here: http://whole9life.com/category/whole-30/

 

Mark's Daily Apple is a good resource for paleo stuff as well.  He does allow dairy, so watch out for that in the recipes.  But he's got a lot of good information and a ton of recipes you can download for free: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/

 

I don't snack much anymore, but I always keep stuff at work in case I need it - extra fruit, a bag of nuts (I know you can't have these - but maybe pumpkin seeds or something like that?) - I keep a lot of canned fish around, especially sardines, which I eat right out of the can - dried fruit, homemade vegetable chips, chopped up vegetables, avocados, hard-boiled eggs, etc. are all good options too.

    • Hi all- im so sorry you are suffering from this gluten nightmare.....  here's my story in a nutshell. Any friendly advice is much appreciated. I am 41, female, healthy weight, ex smoker.. even quit alcohol 10 months ago because of AI disease. Been DX'd with 1) Sjogren's Syndrome and 2) Relapsing Polychondritis. For those that don't know, RP is an AI disease where the body destroys its cartilage. Its pretty aggressive and there is no cure. It is fatal for alot of ppl when the airways collapse. Ive had chronic inflammation for probably 10 years but it is getting progressively worse. It didn't dawn on me until a few weeks ago that gluten intolerance may be driving this. I am in between doctors. I have a new patient apt w/ a new internal med doc 06/28/17. Id planned to ask her then to please test me for celiacs. (going back onto gluten to test this makes me ill thinking about it) My brother and mother have it. I feel good and have plenty of energy. I am a healthy weight. I run, I bike, I walk, I take an hour long aerobics class 3 days a week. I have NO digestive issues. My 10 page labs are green across the board, except for high inflammation. Ive started researching this issue. Ive had more injections in the neck and back and wrists than I can remember. Ive had ablations, exploratory surgeries, botox, trigger point injections.. even a level 2 cervical fusion due to high inflammation in the spine and OA destroying the discs. I have reduced gluten as much as humanly possible. I quit drinking. I take a good quality probiotic and fish oil. My hormones are all good- I take sublinguals for those. My thyroid is perfect. My periods are perfect. My skin is clear. Ive stopped eating dairy, corn and soy. I pretty much currently live off big homemade green salads with olive oil, I make my own soap (which I use as shampoo) I make my own laundry detergent..I even started eating several fork fulls a day of fermented cabbage (ughh) because of the healthy benefits to the gut. Its only been a few weeks. Am I just impatient? What gives? My eyes, wrists and spine are absolutely on FIRE. XXOOO   Tracy
    • This is really tough.  There is still a lot of research needed in diagnosing (or dismissing) celiac disease.  It shouldn't be months/years of misery and uncertainty. A couple of years ago Dr. Marsh (THE Dr. Marsh of the Marsh biopsy rating system) criticized the US celiac community for not recognizing an increase in IELs as early celiac disease. He asked if these doctors would like to be responsible for the oseoperosis or lymphoma of the undiagnosed patients.  I have also seen that it can take months for antibodies to rise.  There was a paper (2015) that looked at gluten challenges in diagnosed celiac patients.  These are folks with confirmed celiac  and for some it took over 3 months for blood tests to show anything. I hope the strict gluten-free diet works for you. I hope to hear you report back in a couple of months.  I'm undergoing my gluten challenge right now. Week 2. It's just really tough. 
    • My 13 and 7 year old have Celiac Disease and my 4 year old has the genes.  I have a double dose of the genes so no matter what my children will get a gene that could develop into the disease.  I hope that my youngest son doesn't ever develop the disease, but his dr said it could activate later in life.  My kids are thriving, they have normal lives, they are smart and have gained knowledge about food that they can carry with them throughout their life.   They really don't let anything stop them from living a normal life.  I think you'll have the upper hand if you choose to have kids.  You'll have the knowledge of what to do to keep them safe if they do have Celiac Disease.  You'll be able to relate since you were young when you were diagnosed.  How was it for you growing up? 
    • My 7 year old son has this happen.  I too get highly angry, like could flip a vehicle kind of angry.  It's hard for the little ones to understand what is going on at the time, only knowing that they can't control themselves....  The glazed crazy look in his eye are always a tell.  Sleep helps, along with lots of water the following day.  The next day we talk about everything and try to figure out what could have glutened him.  We've had talks with our school and teachers letting them know that our son is to not eat anything unless we bring it.  I think the last time this happened to him was from using shared supplies after a treat party.  Now he's very cautious of putting his hands to his lips or mouth.    Now as far as chips, my kids stick with Kettle Brand Chips.  They are certified.  Potatoes aren't my friend so I can't really say if they taste great.     
    • Exactly!! Scuff, are you doing the gluten challenge?  How far along are you?
