  1. Beef liver is the worst. I have to choke it down, but beef heart and chicken organs aren't so bad. I think they taste better the more I eat them. I measured veggies in the beginning, just so I could get an accurate eyeball of how much a cup was. When it comes to greens, especially if you...
  2. I do the yucky greens in the morning, to get them out of the way, so I flip between cooked organ meat & greens one morning to a smoothie the next. And a lot of the greens can count as either ors. Like Kale, arugula, and collards, are both greens and sulfur. Then there is purple cabbage, beet...
  3. So I'm almost 3 months into it, and this diet has improved my life so much. I'm pretty strict with it. My arthritis (that I've had since I was 18) is just gone. I actually love vegetables and eat more veggies than what she calls for. Especially lettuces, since they sort of taste sweet to me,...
  4. I would wait it out, gluten affects many of my family members. Celiac or not they have multiple autoimmune issues which are only exacerbated by eating gluten. I notice, for me anyway, stress plays a role. I found out my poor pooch is dying this week and my arthritis which has been so much...
  5. I'd go with coconut milk/cream. A vegan friend recommended it to me as replacement coffee creamer. You can have that delivered, it packs a lot of calories, and has a lot of natural vitamins. I put it in coffee/tea, make yogurt with it with probiotic pills, put it with honey and make ice cream...
  6. Did it work? Any tips? I started the Wahls protocol this week, after reading the book. Not too encouraged, adding another 4-5 cups of veggies to my diet has not gone over well with my tummy...
  7. My nearly daily diarrhea went away after stopping gluten, but it took me a couple of weeks after stopping gluten to realize my horrible gas pains and mushy stools were from lactose (milk)... it was funny because I'm not much of a milk drinker and I would blame my stomach pain on the chocolate in...
  8. No well water. It could be the city water, but I've come to the conclusion that it's a combination of my impaired gut, stress (highly emotion teen in our house left me without sleep last week), plus I was sick with a cold about a week or two ago, my immune system has probably not been well. Then...
  9. Yes, the first time the doc checked, no for the second, the second I just recognized the symptoms (yellow feces with floating fat on top of the water) and started adding turmeric to my food and taking the oregano oil. I'd be all about taking the antibiotics if I was throwing up or had a fever, but...
  10. I wasn't sure where to post this. Since going gluten free, I've contracted Giardia twice, 3 months apart. Is this common? Does it go away after a time? How did you make it go away? So far I've managed to avoid antibiotics, because IMO what's worse than Giardia is antibiotic resistant giardia...
  11. I'm a nurse, and I pretty much diagnosed myself, I'm not going to test for many reasons. First because I'm cheap, and I plan on having a nice retirement instead of spending a ton of money on multiple blood tests and endoscopies all so they can tell me to stop eating gluten. Second, I've worked...
  12. I'm afraid to eat anything that might make me sick, and I'm trying to pinpoint a reaction I had this past weekend and a day last week. I figured it's either the processed meat from Spouts, but my son (who I suspect is more sensitive than I am -- he's had a couple of cross contamination issues with...
  13. I've had dental enamel issues since childhood, my back molars came in with cavities already in them, and most of the rest of my teeth have enamel and sensitivity issues that have gotten progressively worse. I found that brushing very well only once a day, every single day with an electric toothbrush...
  14. I'm a new to gluten free also, it helps that my husband was already grain free, so we didn't have much of an adjustment other than no cookies or dining out for me anymore. You're going to have to change the way you eat. Look up the no sugar no grains diet, or the paleo diet, start trying new recipes...
  15. I'd say it's food poisoning, but there were 5 other people eating it with me. I'd say it was definitely gluten, but my son is also gluten sensitive, and he had no issues. Maybe it's just the processed food issue. I eat small amounts of bacon occasionally, but no other processed meats. I was thinking...
