  1. You know most of us want to hurt you, right? LOL. You must have an amazing metabolism. I could never fast before... not even 8 hrs... until I got my macro numbers in order! The very low carbs are the key, for me, I think. My body was just so carb dependent, it kept making me hungry so I would...
  2. Excellent Post! Lots of links to help you learn! New changes at our house. We have been Keto (low carb/high fat/mod protein [LCHF]) since November. My weight wasn't coming off as it should. I have now started IF(Intermittent Fasting) and am really noticing the difference this week. The...
  3. I would never do a gluten challenge... EVER! Gluten is an irritant to everyone, to some degree. I didn't have all the tests and knew I felt better without it, so what was the point in a biopsy? Since then we have gone KETO and won't look back at all those non-gluten starches. Life is a journey...
  4. You should check out the KETO way of life. It reversed all my husband's IBS & GERD symptoms. He says he's healthier at 72 than he was at 19! He can't imagine anything that would cause him to "cheat" and make him feel miserable for many days! We have no cheat foods in the house anyway. My...
  5. AIP can be permanent... or a form of it. It just depends on what you are sensitive to. We eat limited eggs & peppers(paprika,cayenne, chilis), no tomatoes, potatoes, dairy, corn, soy, sugar, beans(legumes), rice, starchy flours... and probably a few more I can't think of right now. Sometimes...
  6. The elimination diet won't show you anything while the food is eliminated... it's when you add back 1 at a time that you will know the offender. We did this last fall and were surprised that my husband didn't react well to tomatoes and eggs. He can now eat eggs, but not 3 days in a row. You will...
  7. I hear you about medication side effects! I don't tolerate the standard medications either. I really don't have a choice but supplements... I've even ended up in ER with THOSE!! My system is damaged and adding more for it to filter out is never good for me. We don't have a lot of doctor options...
  8. Those metals can cause a bunch of problems. I'm thinking that could be another part of my persistent pain as well. There are 2 schools of thought regarding removing the fillings. One is... if it's not cracked, leave it alone. The other is to have a specialized Biologic Dentist remove them all...
  9. Chlorine and Fluoride & Bromine(hot tubs & pools) compete with Iodine in the thyroid. Lots of water is good for the body, but if your thyroid is not in optimal condition, these additives could be throwing you off. There was a predictable rise in thyroid problems in the USA when these were...
  10. Puritan's Pride vitamins online are very reasonably priced. They don't have every one we use though. We supplement with Vit D3 2000mg daily, Fish Oil(with mercury purified out) at 2000mg daily, Curcurmin(Turmeric) w/ peperine 3000mg daily divided for pain/inflammation/immune support. If your thyroid...
  11. In what manner were the rest of you glutened? Was it always the dessert? We eat there when we travel and I've never noticed a problem. We don't eat chocolate, so if that was the culprit, then I would have been safe anyway! Debbie
  12. Also keep in mind that doctors usually do the cheapest test, which is not the most accurate. Just because they tell you the blood test is negative, doesn't mean you aren't at the very least SENSITIVE to gluten. Gluten is not essential for existence and all grains are rather poorly tolerated by...
  13. My understanding of honey is the same. It's all insulin provoking. Oddly, even thinking about food starts the flow of insulin, which is a fat storage hormone! That is why the artificial sweeteners don't do diabetics as much good as you would think. The sensation of sweet starts the production...
  14. The problem with artificial sweeteners is that they all affect digestion. If you google them, the chemicals they are made from are mostly cancer causing. Many people are sensitive to them as well. With unexplained health problems, they are best avoided! The artificial sweeteners also make you...
  15. WOW... you've been busy! I would think you would benefit from an elimination diet. Google AIP (Auto Inflammatory Protocol). Eat basic food for 30 days, then start adding to see what agrees and what doesn't. Once I quit the carbs, my anxiety & depression lessoned. High cholesterol is...
