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.

    • I'm glad you have a diagnosis.  Fibromyalgia is recognized by western medicine, FDA has even approved several drugs for its treatment.  This article from the NIH is interesting, saying that not all doctors are familiar with it ( those are probably the ones who minimize it).   I hope your health improves now that you know what you have and can begin to do something for it. https://www.niams.nih.gov/health_info/fibromyalgia/#c
    • Hi Casy and welcome! I say welcome, you've been here before! Welcome back then You probably know already that you tick a lot of the celiac boxes (so answer to a) is no you're not crazy ). It's a bugger to diagnose however and you have to be eating gluten for the tests to work. So your previous test when the mess hall diet was eggs rice and chicken may not have been accurate.  I collected some faqs on the diagnosis process sometime ago. They're here along with a couple of links that may be of use in regard to the second question about the tests available:  There's also the board FAQ stickied above of course: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/  If I were you I'd be tempted to try cutting gluten. My advice would be not to do that at least just yet - if the test comes back positive they may want to run an endoscopy or other blood test. It's not pleasant to go back on it if its a problem for you, the 'gluten challenge' in other words.  One final point, I don't know what a positive diagnosis would do for your military career prospects. Maybe thats something you should think about or discuss with someone in confidence? The diagnosis can't do much for you practically, treatment is to not consume gluten. So you may be able to not pursue the diagnosis and just do your own test with avoiding gluten. Although I don't know how practical that is with MRE's etc... There may be others here who can help with that question.  Oh and theres a genetic element, so your son's GI issues may also be related... Best of luck! Matt  
    • Perhaps you were run down and your immune system was compromised? Here's a good paper on the subject: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3579488/ Not much definitive, but this for instance is interesting: In my own case I know that under gluten I lived for years with an impaired immune system. Any cold going around I got it and kept it for longer than everyone else. I was often 'under the weather' and I had unexplained urinary infections etc. The skin issues were one part of that and the SD the most visible. So many things resolved when going gluten free that I was upset that the SD, whilst improving, didn't also disappear.  I saw a consultant dermatologist and he diagnosed it and said that Nizoral had the best chance of impacting on it - in fact its the active ingredient: ketoconazole that you need to look for: I only use the shampoo now if its bad and it isn't too bad at all, I think because I'm broadly healthy, eating well and strict on the diet. I have an itchy scalp and occasional spots at bottom of scalp but I can always go back to the shampoo if needed. Like you I have a couple of others sat around for an alternative.  My research has suggested its a case of treating symptoms and staying well, but its control rather than cure.  Sorry!  
    • Yours looks safe I was using paleo pro back then and the company changed from gluten free to manufactured in the same facility as.
    • Hello all! Does anyone take the Claritin non drowsy reditabs for indoor and outdoor allergies? Its the dissolvable ones. I was prescribed loratadine as prescription but pharmacist told me the pill form had gluten in its ingredients and that this Claritin reditabs were gluten free. I will call manufacture company as well just wanted to see if my fellow celiacs took this or what type of allergy medicine do you guys take? Any advice is helpful. Also for my post nasal drip I was prescribed Fluticasone Propionate Nasal spray. I have yet to use this as it is the generic equivalent for Flonase. Anyone know if it is gluten free? The manufacturing company said they could not state if it was free of gluten because they do not test it but she did say nothing in the inactive ingredients looks like it contains gluten???? I really  need to you a nasal spray as I cannot breathe or swallow due to allergies in the air.
