  1. I have been seeing two doctors: A naturopath, and a regular MD. After receiving the results back from a test I took with my naturopath, I was prescribed fluconazole for an intestinal bacterial overgrowth. I took three doses of it over the...
  2. It sounds like your extended family is being insensitive. It also sounds very clear that your immediate family are all having reactions.

    Need Dessert Ideas

    Pudding (vanilla, butterscotch, etc), tapioca (I make mine with coconut milk and put berries or baked apple slices and cinnamon on top), dairy free ice cream, berry pies, sugar cookies. Hope that helps to at least get you brain-storming...
  4. I know this is an old topic....but I wouldn't want anyone to actually think that you could become dependent on something like this. That is an old wives tale. People whose bowels didn't work properly started using products like senna or...
  5. I am gluten free. I have been gluten free since 2007, and grain free for about two years. I just wanted to keep updating what has been going on with me, because it could help someone else. Since the original magnesium citrate cleanse...
  6. So I just got back from my sigmoidoscopy. If I eat corn or (gluten free) grains of any kind, I have horrible, horrible, diarrhea. I still have diarrhea when I don't, but it's tolerable and I can make it through life without being two feet...
  7. I wasn't sure where to post this topic...and I'm not sure why I feel this way, but I have for the past three years. I go to the University of Oregon and when I am in the music building ALL day, I end up feeling super exhausted, can't...
  8. I am curious if anyone has ever been "cured" of any allergies, sensitives, or intolerances. I'm not doubting that the food that makes us sick makes us sick...but maybe there was an underlying issue that was solved, and now you can eat rice...
  9. I had many doctors tell me this was normal. BUT I just saw a doctor who FINALLY admitted that this is, in fact, NOT NORMAL. Haven't completed any tests yet, but when my new amazing doctor and I figure out what the problem is, I'll post it...

    Homosexuality?

    Maybe a greater percentage of people who identify themselves as homosexual are more open-minded, and listening to what their bodies are telling them (more so than people who identify themselves as heterosexual) so they are just more aware...
  11. I told my doctor that I keep becoming allergic to new foods, as well as feel incredibly sick for days and days when I eat any type of sugar, unless it's a whole, fresh piece of fruit. I also can't tolerate ANY chemicals, ingested or on my...
  12. CANE SUGAR! Cane sugar caused horrible ringing in my ears. And it's not just after I eat some. It could be days later, randomly coming on in the middle of the night...it took a long time to figure out. Now that I eat zero cane sugar, I get...
  13. I have been wondering if eating animals and animal products (eggs) that are sickly (fed grains and who knows what else) is making me ill. I have done everything else I can think of. I eat only organic, whole foods...but not necessarily when...
  14. I'm hesitant to bring this subject up with my fiance as I am not the bread-winner, and already the sole reason our food bill is so ridiculous....plus I am afraid that if I try it out, I will feel better and then it will be yet another permanent...

    Considering Getting A Copper IUD

    I also had a mirena IUD and also had horrible cramping after orgasms. I also had severe cramping once when the IUD shifted inside my body randomly. I got it taken out the next day. It scared me to think that this tiny thing could puncture...

    Headache Survey

    A lot of foods I am intolerant to cause me headaches. The biggest offenders are sugars and alcohol. I can eat most whole raw fruits, but ANYTHING else sweet gives me major headaches. It usually depends on how much of it I eat. If I take...
  17. I have been completely grain free in the past. I was grain free for about 3 years....I was and am still developing more food intolerances though. I use some buckwheat flour now (if you consider buckwheat a grain. Some people consider it...
  18. I don't have any answers to these questions. But it makes me feel SO much better knowing that other people are suffering through the same problems I am. I have been to so many doctor appointments, and not any kind of specialist can find...
  19. Cane sugar makes my ears ring. Depending on how much I eat, they can ring for days after wards.

    Doctor In Eugene, Or? (or Anywhere Within 4 Hours)

    I am also in Eugene. Unfortunately, I have absolutely no good recommendations for you. I have many allergy problems as well, and have seen MANY doctors. Unfortunately, non of them seem to think my chronic diarrhea and accompanying abdominal...
  21. I've played the clarinet for about ten years, I grease my corks every time I put my instrument together, and have never noticed a problem from cork grease. I am also very sensitive to even trace amounts of gluten. I don't have much brand...
  22. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  23. Ok so my 21st Birthday is April 10th (on a Friday!), and I need ideas on what we should do. Obviously, alcohol will be involved. I would just go out to the bars, but I am SO sensitive to alcohol, there are only a few I tolerate. Plus I feel...
  24. I was have really irregular and different periods from before after going gluten free. I ended up spotting for something like two months, and it seemed there was no end. When I talked to my doctor about it, she thought it seemed incredibly...
  25. I do make sure to be hydrating and eating when I drink. There have been times when I haven't and I paid for it. The problem I am having though doesn't seem to only happen if I drink large amounts of alcohol. I drank some water out of a cup...
