    My journey to getting well

    Worth noting, since avoiding spices and the nightshade family some arthritis or what ever it is has gone away. Basically if I do a lot of walking over, 45 minutes my hips, ankles and knees will begin to hurt, often to the point that I need to stop walking. Since avoiding spices and nightshade...

    My journey to getting well

    It's been a decent week. Last week everyday I had liquid diarrhea all the time. The worst. This week not once did I experience that. My energy levels are not all that great, but they seem to be better this week also. This morning though I'm feeling beat up and tires. I did some...

    Something else I've noticed and should note, since avoiding nightshade and spices I've so far stopped developing tongue sores or markings. I'm not sure what they are, but they can hurt sometimes when eating meals. Those markings appear to have gone away. In the past I've often thought that if...

    I should note this down. I'm back to avoiding spices and nightshade, along with red meat and dairy. I'm likely to eat dairy in the near future. What's newthat I've noticed is that since avoiding spices and nightshade, my hair has changed. I've noticed this hair difference in the past but...

    My journey to getting well

    I'm back to avoiding spices and nightshade along with red meat and dairy. I was sick last night. I woke up in the middle of the night being ill. Surprisingly I was happy about it, as I'd eaten a lot of spices earlier. So I'll go with the harder diet to follow and see where it takes me. I...

    My journey to getting well

    I continue to lose weight on this diet of avoiding red meat and dairy products. I woke up weighing 173lbs. It's amazing at how little appetite I have on this diet. It's rare for me to become hungry. I can become tired though as I am this morning due to working out to much yesterday.

    My journey to getting well

    Today was the first day I noticed weight loss in my face. I've noticed fat loss around my waist, with appearance and also with being able to wear smaller fitting clothing. I still have a ways to go with weight loss but I'm making good progress. My energy levels have been quite good on this...

    I should note this further. I've written down in my note book also. Since avoiding red meat and dairy products I'm not as hungry as typical. I can even skip two meals and not feel all that badly in the evening. My energy levels will remain decent.

    My journey to getting well

    I've been ill off and on for the week. I remain having good energy levels in general though. That's a good sign though I could do without the upset stomachs. Because of this I'll add back spices and nightshade to my diet. When avoiding a lot of foods it can become to much to handle...

    My journey to getting well

    Lets see, as usual for me I've made a change in the diet, back to the idea I was trying before this. I'm avoiding nightshade family again along with soy since soy is genetically altered with a member of the nightshade family. I'm also avoiding beef and dairy products. I've had many times were...

    Thanks Delta. I appreciate the words of support. It's been a long journey working on this. Fingers crossed I finally have the right combination to get myself well, with improved stomach health and also energy. Not to confuse, but thought to share something I read that made me wonder what...

    My journey to getting well

    I've been pleasantly surprised at how much exercise I've been able to do of late. The last couple of days have been really tough and yet I have been bouncing back quickly. Basically I can take a beating. Fingers crossed the same continues this week. It's a good sign that I'm following the...

    Did well this week. Stomach doing alright. Energy levels are good most of the time. No rash to report anymore. Finger nails look and feel great. No finger nail pitting. This morning I decided to not eat any macadamia nuts. I've suspected that macadamia nuts can rub mydigestive system...

    My journey to getting well

    Worth noting, my eyes are bright blue this evening. It's been a long long time since I've seen that. It's a great sign. I'm avoiding beef once again. I haven't had any dairy in quite some time. I'm also avoiding pork, so I'm avoiding red meat and dairy products. My energy levels have...

    My journey to getting well

    As typically done, I've changed plans. I'm eating beef now. I'm still avoiding dairy as dairy tires me out. Accoring to some books dairy eating can lead to anemia. I am avoiding spices, garlic in particular. I noticed when avoiding garlic/spices I have much better energy. I'm awake more...

    I'm talking better while on this diet. It's nice. I can communicate with little issue now. I'm still not the most energetic person. My energy levels are nice though. I find myself staying up later here of late. The big item I've been concerned about of late has to do with how I feel after...

    No pain or maybe better said little pain left today after yesterdays weight lifting. I've also lost some weight without much effort. The most important item I've had some very good stomach days of late. I'm not always feeling great to the stomach, as yesterday afternoon experienced some...

    This would be big if it turns out this way. I weight lifted on my legs early in the week. I didn't feel any pain afterwards. Instead I had more energy as a result. This morning I worked out on my chest muscles. So far it has been the same, little to no pain, and instead I feel more...

    So far so good with avoiding wheat, red meat, and dairy. I'm liking how I feel. I can still tire myself out with to much exercise. The stomach is not great. Overall though I am seeing an improvement, with considerably less brain fog, and more energy. The stomach is improved some too. Well...

    My journey to getting well

    Since avoiding wheat the brain fog continues to improve. I'm feeling decent this morning. So I'm back to the diet idea I was trying over New Years, avoiding red meat and dairy as an allergy. Avoiding wheat due to it being difficult to digest. Dairy products and wheat almost always go...
