  1. after a couple years, i am miserable and cannot figure out what is bothering me. i feel like im worse than before i began treatment. it could be the antibiotic...and dr suggested i could try taking them through a shot once a week (thus to avoid my digestive system, which creates problems with most abx that I have tried)......... i was wondering if this is common: that the ~only~ antibiotic that works actually stops working? thanks in advance, Scotty
  2. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  3. yall beautiful. just wanted to say thanks Carla
  4. sherry, could you tell me how long you been on the SCD diet and how long you been treating the Lyme and how long have you been sick. for the most part i wonder sometimes since my problems have been around so long how much of a chance i stand. you know what kind of irreversible damage has been done. alot of folks i have come across have all of a sudden starting getting sick so to speak; but i have been there my whole life. somebody has to get this out. i mean really out there......if one of us meets Obama please ask him what his plan for Lyme patients is; that would have been my question on one of them debates. this should recognized sooner, treated before it mutates thanks Scotty
  5. you know i have looked at all these special diets and none really work for me since i can hardly digest anything. i have been through the elminations and narrowed myself down to certain things that are tolerable and i can make it through my days with. so thats what i am eating now. i wish i could get more of a variety in though. i am not sure what to eat at times. i just want something wihtout any consequences or suffering. i can only imagine what that must be like. i had a 3 day urine test sent to igenex so i can't wait to see the results. thanks for the replies too, i can hang in there now; and knowing i can leave the site for awhile then return with the world falling apart to only hear thats normal is really great to have
  6. everyone, thanks for the advisions.... i want to take a probiotic to help but i thought they all had dairy i mean aren't probiotics pretty mad from milk? i will have to try to find some dairy free ones and i checked the site for the yogurt recipe and was a little overwhelmed here at first. i am not much of a cook, but i do follow directions well. dod i use goat's milk is that my understanding. i will have to take a better look. does the magnesium help against this is that why you take it?
  7. Sherry, i have read that herx term before what is this exactly? i think that describes it best my intestines are hsutting down nothing goes in (my bloodstream and to me) and nothing seems to come out. for me though i get terrible urges to urinate. all in all, i think it was turkey, which i could get away with every now and then when i was not taking abx, but now is a real disaster. which leads to me wonder what i should eat next. cuz i can't eat anything (i mean anything; whether it be carbs or veggies or most meat!!) without some consequences and i can feel a yeast overtaking beginning to happen. now the doctors office said to eat some yogurt everyday or Acidophilus, but 'dairy' makes me cramp; really does not help here. what else could i do to keep the yeast at bay. whats SCD? Scotty
  8. ok i have not been here awhile but i am on antibiotics now and have a Lyme Doctor (finally). my bladder and kidneys are getting hard and i feel as though i have to pee all the time. its been a week. and its hard to tell but should i have a feeling they are helping yet. should i stop taking them (of course i need to contact the doctor on this as well)? but i am getting the feeling i am not on the right track. i am not feeling any nausea or diarrhea, more or less constipation or like nothign is in there i still keep peeing every minute in sensation..........can't seem to form thoughts to describe it either.........i hope its just a bad day, but the antibiotics felt good slightly, very subtlely at first; and like everything else i have done the toll heads in on my bladder, accumulates, my anus gets hard my head gets light and dizzy i just know. i will be up in the night several times here before too long. the more i drink the worse it will get cuz the more i will pee.
  9. maybe you could bet him or something...make it fun. i mean make him try the diet for two weeks to a month saying 'you can always go back to eating the other way. c'mon it is two weeks not the rest of your life and if it does not help you get this...' (make sure if he loses it is simple though. i mean totally give him an edge, a better deal in the end). i know it is pretty serious but have him look at things this way--what else has worked? nothing. so it is really nothing as well. and when he notices the difference in himself upon trying to return i think he will understand. you never know the miniscule biological changes until you have a wound heal for yourself.

    "When your bowels are always acting weird I suppose it becomes normal in a way." SO TRUE SO SO TRUE "I am willing to eat a bowl of plain rice a day if that's what it takes to feel normal." i tried the rice diet for almost two years and became so utterly pale my lips were pasting. grant it i was still eating gluten in my bread, but for two years it was gobs of rice, tuna, bananas and mushrooms since they were the only things not giving me D or pain. now it is cod and cauliflower. not fish! Cod. not cauliflower...Calorganic brand cauliflower only. otherwise i have a vague feeling for two days or so. spots, loss of motor controls, etc. as far as trying the rice diet again now that i know about gluten...the Candida makes me reconsider. whenever i eat any kind of carbs or grains my circulation corrodes and i get cold and the flu infests me like an achy web of cobwebs in-throughout my tremoring nervous system; stems from my digestive track, the attachments are crazy how my gut winces at some pinch then my calf cramps or swells, my elbow gets soar. i can't get my feet warm on a moderate day........---underlying issues is the theme round here---

    Food Obsession Anyone?

    peanut butter--a whole jar and i barely, finally taste the last gob leaving me wanting so much more as it reels through ripping its way out, and i say to myself 'thisisincrediblestarvinginsatiable...thisisthelastime'
  13. start eating fruits veggies and meats. find your foods. you will get better. you come to the right place. the best test results is how the diet change makes you feel. cross your fingers on that soy and the corn and the...welcome
  14. watch out for soy and watch out for Rice Dream brand....
  15. well you know what they say.....'hope in one hand and.....' lets just say there is a 'handful' of us that fall into the regular Celiac category....stick with it
  16. 11 MONTHS HERE....my digestive system is still out of whack. i hate tests. i hate meds of any sort. nothing is working.... Enterolab stool test scores: gluten----------8 milk------------8 chicken/egg---8 ...save for gluten free (well everything free as it is actually), which has opened Pandora's box of other issues for me; which were probably already there; but now i have a cushy job, the ability to talk with employees at the organic store (to get how i want it), and now i can let go of my bowels!!!--instead of fighting them, forcing them to accept that which i have given them. welcome
  17. i was just wondering what the folks on here who i am more and more coming across that they avoid salicylates and lectins as well as everything else that seems to generally attach itself to problems with gluten. i was just wondering what they are eating then. i have done research and there is almost enough information to rule out everything!!! one website says potatoes are ok another says they are bad and that is not the example i want to use persay but the first one i thought of....just out of curiosity here. i can't find a website yet that has a true diet to follow; can only find the negatives and they are overlapping

    Candida Diet

    cjacobs, i was wondering if you are eating any carbs at the moment, any grains or soluble fibers. grant it these things can give me wicked D but they have also proven to give me hard painful C. these will add to your yeast infections as well. i know you mentioned eating a lot of veggies but i was not sure. they can be a real burden though you do not know it. when i get "glutened" which is coming from everytwhere as we speak i tend to really become unable to absorb carbs, and they give me a flu-like feeling...i'm seeking other casues for this though too...as sensitive as i am though it is something to keep in mind scotty

    Candida Overgrowth

    i'm still quite new to handling THE BEAST, but i have come to find out that problematic foods on the list(s) give me problems. and "safe" foods give me problems. while at the same time problem foods work and safe foods work; but i have also found that all in one way or another when they commix give me candida; while sometimes they don't (when i have only safe foods from "my" list in my belly). i just notice that "flares" occur from certain foods like carbs when certain foods like veggies which my body won't tolerate for some reason are in there as well; which drives me insane trying to figure out which came first: the carb development or the veggie flare. on top of that, i can't find a damn thing that i can say confidently works continously since i am always searching for other foods to keep a good variety digesting through. everything effects me!!!! at some point and it has a different taste almost. evrytime i eat things give me wicked energy, or give me terrible D. or things make me sluggish or produce no BMs. and i wish i did not know about candida and bacteria and the multiple levels and the requirement for detox. i wish i could just go to the fields and forests like a dumb caveman, pick the bushes and avoid the red berries cuz the blue ones dont give me indigestion. i wish it were that simple. and unfortunately my "bush" has run out of cauliflower and they are only carrying the "red" fish at the moment so today is the last day i have of "blue" fish. and all the other cave people give me ignorant looks as i unload the same stuff from the basket every few days onto the machine. but the ones in this office are about to curl there noses at the smell this place carries at this same time everyday; and poor me.....they have the ability to communicate their complaints. and i can only so much today that i am fixing from yesterday that i will try to cleanse out tomorow. and i'm not really looking forward to the future i am going to have to go through just to have a future that i am going to be able to have. ok i'm done---thanks
  20. Ursa, well bless your heart for answering then. i can't believe your the only one to answer though. maybe these diets are not as clear cut as they seem. thanks for the websites too--the one i had come across, but one is also new. just curious what everyone is following. looking for the majic mixture. seems like most of the stuff i can't eat anyway are on these lists. i'm going to create my own diet which like everyone else's will be very restricted and will have a list of safe foods (or what works for me); that seems to be the idea. maybe though i can make some $$$$$$$$$$ off it. thanks again and hope your better, scotty
