General Discussion / Re: Biopuncture
« on: January 27, 2015, 04:46:23 PM »
I'm going in tomorrow to have a steroid shot to my lower back (lumber and sacrum area).  Doctor is Chinese...medical school there then here to Harvard, Kent State and another school whose name escapes me.  His credentials seemed impressive when I googled the staff of that clinical practice.  He's had training in "alternative" medicine.  I wish I'd done this before my app't last week.  Tomorrow I doubt I'll get to converse with him re: his background.  The biopuncture thing sounds intriguing.  I'd be open to that...but I'd bet there isn't much $$$$ for that.

General Discussion / MLM regarding health and weight loss
« on: January 24, 2015, 01:12:09 PM »
I was just approached in one of my "support links" after I'd posed a question or comment re: my "stall" and my issues.  She pm'd me and offered that this product had enabled her to stop being insulin resistant, healed her thyroid and helped her to lose her weight as well.  I thanked her but told her she was being dishonest by approaching me in the way she did plus B/4 going on WB I'd looked into this product. NOT only is it expensive BUT it has some ingredients I'm known to be sensitive to.  Healthy???  I'd rather be where I'm at now than depart with money that I could just as well set a match to.

I'd appreciate any comments you all have on these types of products (though I probably could say everything you all will say)! 

General Discussion / Need to "unload"...not vent exactly!
« on: January 08, 2015, 08:56:12 AM »
This isn't really related to our WOE just want to share.  For many years I've had a really bad back.  I was born with spondylolithesis (sp) and had a work-related injury about 25 yrs ago.  Haven't been 100% ever since.  Then around 2000, I began to experience LOTS of sciatica pain and more culminating in a ruptured disc 3 1/2 yrs. ago.  I had a dissectomy and had the blessing of almost no discomfort up til this past mid-summer.  Ever so gradually it's gone down-hill to where I finally saw my primary (the surgeon has left our area) to get a referral to ??  I had the required MRI yesterday with the result of "severe" lumbar stenosis. She didn't think it was to the point of where she'd refer me to the neuro-surgical practice in a nearby city but rather to "pain management" which will be steroid shots.  Had that before and it helped but was a mere "band-aid".  I'm basically doing our way of eating to get rid of inflammations and the side-effect of weight loss as well.  THAT last part is going slowly due to insulin resistance.  BIG SIGH!!!

Where's my "LIKE" tab for Barbara's answer???  I was going to say the same thing! LOL

I'm on Facebook with several links and my-oh-my the drama one sees sometimes.  I want to say "grow up!"  I used to be in 2 or 3 WB support groups but left them because of the drama.  People would come in there, not reading the book and ask questions over and over.  Folks would try to answer (meaning help) them, then they'd get all surly and snarky telling the helper/folks they were attacking them.  I think it goes with the territory of the internet.  IF the admins aren't on top of things (Thank you Admins here) and police can get out of hand.  Quite fortunately I did find a WB site that has been quite good for support etc., besides this one! ;)

I didn't open the link re: the supplements BUT that said I'm big on using them. Would these help with inflammations?  I'm trying to get my autoimmune system re-regulated if that's possible.  I can't afford a functional medicine doctor but would consider taking good quality supplements if I knew for sure they'd address my issues.

Rita...I'm so sorry about your accident and injuries! Hoping you're healing well by this time and that it won't affect your holiday plans.

We put in a whole house system when we moved to FL 5 years ago.  It surprised me as it was expensive (about 3k) as my husband is fairly thrifty.  It's in the garage and he's gone and I can't remember it's name but we've been quite satisfied with it.

General Discussion / Re: Gallbladder, gallstones and estrogen
« on: December 20, 2014, 11:02:05 AM »
My daughter also has endometriosis and difficult periods.  She's 47, hasn't had kids and her primary refuses to do a hysterectomy.  I can see the reasons for that because your female parts are all connected with the endocrine system.  I'm not sure my daughter is real open to our way of eating at the moment anyway.  She interestingly enough, takes a few of the same supplements we are take.  I would love to see her do some changes but she's an adult and that has to be her decision.
I know my hormones have always been screwy.  Had PMS big time back in the day.  I'm wondering if some of this is genetic.  My mom had endo. as well as one of my sisters and they both had hysterectomies. I'm not sure if my mom had any autoimmune issue (I have RA and some others), but my sister does for sure.  Leaky gut comes to mind.....for ALL of us!

« on: December 17, 2014, 01:39:15 PM »
I wish I'd known ALL this 20-ish years ago when I had my gallbladder removed!!!  Five years before that I'd had a hysterectomy due to endometriosis/growths.  My doctor told me after that, that within 5 yrs I'd have to have gallbladder surgery as that almost always happens AND he was right.  I had 2 or 3 attacks before I went to see my doctor.  I just wanted it affirmed more than anything.  THEN when I said I'd rather not have the surgery he walked me through ALL the horrible scenarios of "what might" happen and they weren't pretty.

I've actually heard of one instance where a woman died from having a stone blockage (which was one of the scenarios I was told about).  So they are serious BUT I never knew we could address it naturally.  Thank you for sharing this information because it might help another.  Can I re-post your article on Facebook?

I had two thoughts....aloe oil directly from the plant might work.  I used it on our daughter when she was a teen for a burn that she got from leaning againest a hot car with shorts on.  I know it's a burn but it really did heal it and quickly.

The other thought I had was to break open Vitamin E supplements and put directly on the spot.  Hope you find an answer!

I'm in and out as well probably due to the slowness on this site.  I'm on a WB one on FB that is pretty civil.  The 1st ones in it were on 2 different others that became hostle and snippy.  Folks would sign up, not read the book and ask questions that you could tell they wanted to be "spoon fed" the information.  Responses would be civil BUT there were those who took exception and would attack the person for attacking them.  It would bring a lot of these few started their own FB page.  It's for those who are totally WB and not deviating from it.  Not low-fat, low-carb and not paleo and not where one makes up their own idea on how to work it.  Back to the drama thing....I think some folks thrive on it and get their excitement from it.

I think whomever the admin on here is good about the trolls.  I like this site quite a bit so come every so often to see if there's a new conversation.

General Discussion / Diatomaceous it good or bad??:
« on: December 08, 2014, 10:29:10 AM »
Diatomaceous Earth (food grade) popped up on my FB page.  There is also a support link on FB re: it so I've been reading re: it.  Anyone familiar with it?  Thoughts!!

Currently I'm doing a pre (Bob's Red Mill Unmodified Potato Starch) and a probiotic along with all the recommended supplements that Dr. Davis recommends.

I'm just searching for a natural way to heal since our budget doesn't allow me to go see a functional medical doctor.  There is one in our community but he charges out of pocket for his office calls and the labs would be that as well.  We're on Medicare and a Supplement (it's an advantage plan) that won't pick up any costs out of network.  My primary is supportive of my doing WB but still is conventional re: medications---such as statins (which I refuse to take).  IF I could reduce my cholesterol (I've been told by folks on the WB links that my #'s are fine) to a better range (for my primary to back off) and also to get some other #'s down as well.  I've been able, so far, to reduce my metformin and Armour Thyroid medications.  That said re: the primary doesn't really know how to treat thyroid issues as a whole.  I know this is a lengthy and all-over-the-board question...but would appreciate thoughts.

General Discussion / Re: GERD/Acid-Reflux
« on: December 02, 2014, 01:52:02 PM »
Wanted to report back to you folks re: the hubs.  The meat passed...but it took awhile.  What he does for it is to drink soda because the fizz seems to take care of it.  Maybe baking soda (yukky taste though) would also help thus not imbibing in the chemicals etc. of the former.  BUT as I said he's not compliant anyway.
I'm thinking he may need to be scoped and stretched again.  I feel so sorry for the guy! What contributes too (one gastro. told him this) is that because he has dentures he needs to cut the food really tiny (I probably said this before but it's to emphasize the importance) and chew/chew/chew.  I think he forgets that last part sometimes.  We didn't have to go to the ER, thank God!!

Back to me....I wish I could get off my omphrazole but I know that I need to begin making my own tummy enzymes.  I'm doing what Dr. Davis suggested for that and others (with supplements and pre/probiotics etc).  It took time to get this way and will take time to heal as well.

General Discussion / Re: GERD/Acid-Reflux
« on: December 01, 2014, 03:53:01 PM »
I came back to this conversation because as I type my husband is coughing on "stuck" food!  I made a pot roast with carrots and potatoes in our crockpot.  Sometimes food just irritates that scar tissue area and sometimes it gets stuck.  I don't know what to do to help him...he knows what he needs to do.  He's not doing my way of eating and probably would refuse to even if I recommended it being a possible way to to heal or alleviate this issue.

The way I typically react to any kind of issue (health scares) I get what I'd call angry.  Did it when my kids were little and tend to do it now with my husband.  It's probably fear on my part and totally irrational.  If it doesn't pass soon...I envision us going to urgent care or the ER (which we've done 3X in the past).  So if you're a praying person I'd appreciate it!!

« on: November 29, 2014, 02:04:01 PM »'ve posted a handful of comments on this site in various conversations.  I'm wondering exactly where you're at with your way of eating.  As the other poster said, you need to go and read Wheat Belly, Total Health.

General Discussion / Re: GERD/Acid-Reflux
« on: November 29, 2014, 02:01:12 PM »
I have this issue and I'm trying to heal my gut.  I've read someplace that sometimes if one is a long-time user of Omeprazole type drugs you may never get off.  Not sure what Dr. Davis' take would be on that.

My husband had severe gerd/acid reflux back in the 90's.  He had that Nissen surgery and has done well on it.  HOWEVER, about 6 yrs ago he began to have meat get caught at the opening into his stomach. Three times he had to go in and have it surgically scoped and removed.  He's been treated in the past year or so by a gastroenterologist.  He's still having the issue but hasn't had that scoping to retrieve it for some time now.  The doctor told him it's scar tissue and it can't be surgically fixed.  He's on the drug again (can't remember why).  His deal is he has dentures so needs to cut his meat in really small pieces then was told to chew it really well.  Sometimes other foods "irritate" his scar tissue as well. 

One needs to have regular chats with their doctor as gerd can lead to a pre-cancerous condition.

General Discussion / Re: IBS Sufferers after Wheat Belly?
« on: November 20, 2014, 10:20:10 AM »
google Fat Bombs....they're made with coconut oil, butter, choc. and several other options.  I put mine in silicone ice cube trays and freeze.  Good to pop for a dessert or snack.

For me...fat bombs, magnesium and a couple of dollaps of Bob's Red Mill "UNMODIFIED" potato startch in about 6 oz. of water will enable me to have a normal bm.  Once beginning WB I tended to be a bit constipated which isn't normal neither (this after having IBS for sevrral years).  I'm on some Facebook WB links and heard about the fatbombs and potato starch (which is a prebiotic btw) on those.

If you read Wheat Belly and/or Wheat Belly, Total'll read about this.  Magnesium supplements can help but you need to get the correct amount.  I had IBS and "IF" I don't get enough oils in my woe...I'll tend to become more constipated.  I've found if I use oil or avacado oils for salad dressing this helps, bullet proof coffee helps as do fat bombs.  Oh and pre and probiotics too.

Along with the 30-minute cookbook I also bought another (online) called Satisfying Eats by Melissa __something__Mcghee. She was doing WB but from what I've heard she's deviated a bit with sweetners and other ingredients.  The longer one is on WB you can pass over such recipes and spot the ones that are for us.  I also get recipes shared on the WB support sites on FB.

I don't go by what "others" report re: Wheat Belly!  There are some "haters" out there.  I personally haven't been on flaxseed with this way of eating.  Not sure why because I was a daily user for several years up until maybe 4 or 5 years ago when we moved to FL.  I got out of my "normal" routine then and didn't get back to much of it due to other things happening with my health and life.

Went to see my primary yesterday...2nd time in 2 weeks for the clinic and now 2nd time on antibiotics.  She felt I have a doozy of a sinus infection.  I can't do steroid nasal sprays, though I do do the saline rinse thing (as in netti-pot).  I also have several autoimmune issues going on so maybe because of that my system was a bit more vulnerable.  I managed not to get sick last year....with ALL the nasty stuff that was going around.  I do have allergies but this thing didn't start like that.  I definately had a cold 1st along with general malaise that comes with it really being a flu-thing.  Twenty-four hours out with the drug, I'm beginning to feel a bit more normal.  I'm opting not to do the cleanse just yet as I read the ingredients on it AND what not to take while on Cipro.  I had to go thru my daily drug dispenser upon reading that and eliminate a couple of my medications along with a few supplements as well. PLUS I can't take the methotrexate while I'm on the antibiotic.  Just.plain.lovely!! (sarcasm intended)  I've heard this thing is "out there"...I've heard reports!!

Thank you Barbara from New Jersey with your helpful comment.  Currently I'm fighting a long-lasting (apparently) cold/flu bug.  I'm thinking a cleanse will be a good thing once I'm better.  Not sure how to "address" this bug since I have RA, T2d and some other auto-immune issues.  I'm currently doing a good pro and prebiotic every day AND when I remember I do the Bragg's apple cider vinegar as well.  This respiratory thing is going around in our community...glad when I'll be over it!

Before WB....I liked OG for lunch with their soup/salad offerings.  BUT upon reading the WB book I determined there isn't a whole lot at that restaurant that is healthy eating. We did go there with a group shortly after I began WB, for dinner.  I think I had a grilled chicken breast and the salad.  The chicken was terrible I might add so we haven't been back.

One can eat out with WB but it takes planning for sure and select places...JMHO

General Discussion / Re: Wheat and Hormones?
« on: November 02, 2014, 09:37:06 AM »
Thyroid was checked....I requested the Free T3 and T4 and the reverse as well...but not sure if that was done.  As you all know...most doc's don't know much about thyroid care.  With my other autoimmune issues and really trying to find a balance of good health, sometimes I just want to give up as it's so mind-boggling.

Will these cleanses be o.k. with a diabetic??   I did a cleanse, maybe 7 years ago b/4 most of my diagnosis'.  It was through my chiropractor and it worked but as you stated I went back to eating the way I was doing (which I thought at the time was "healthy") so.....failure!  I'll look into it!

I'm currently doing most all of the supplements Dr. Davis recommends along with a pre and probiotic as well.  Frustration is mostly my mantra these days!  Thanks for the tip.

I forgot to mention that I had my hyterectomy in 1984 and I just turned 70 (gah...1st time I've seen that in print! LOL)  Anyway, I know having this surgery really impacted me physically.  I've been doing Wheat Belly since Jan. of 2013...I stalled losing after about 30 to 35 lbs.  I know I'm insulin resistant, have hypo-thyroid, rheumatoid arthritis, T2d and ???  I'm currently reading the newest WB book.  Dr. Davis says to count carbs (15 net per meal) but I'm not even sure this is helping me.  It's so frustrating!!!

Since my last post I've been to the grocery store.  I did buy a small container of Kerrygold butter (for table use not the sticks).  It is plain w/o canola oil.  This was a Publix in Central FL.  It's certainly pricey at Publix compared to what I was getting at Sam's when I was able to get it. Oh.well....just wanted to share this with you folks.

General Discussion / Re: Wheat and Hormones?
« on: October 31, 2014, 11:31:14 AM »
This is a copy/paste of something I posted on another thread, but I'll repost it here since it applies:Fat cells can produce estrogen.   When estrogen levels are low (perhaps through a hysterectomy) it causes lipoprotein lipase (LPL) to pull triglycerides from the blood stream into fat cells, so the fat cells can take up more nutrients to produce estrogen.   The body also wants to conserve energy expenditure by lowering the metabolic rate, so that it maintains the fat to produce that estrogen.Also, fat cells secrete hormones such as leptin, which then impact other hormones that impact weight.  For instance - stress causes cortisol levels to increase, which causes leptin resistance. Leptin resistance causes low thyroid function, weight gain, low androgens in men, and high androgens in women.  High androgens in women cause low adiponectin, which causes insulin resistance.   And, insulin resistance also causes weight gain.  (This may be the cause of PCOS in women.)   So as you can see, there is a vicious cycle here with leptin.Fat cells also produce c-reactive protein (CRP), which as we know is a marker of inflammation.   The CRP molecule binds to leptin, which prevent leptin from crossing the blood-brain barrier.   So inflammation causes leptin deficiency too, as leptin needs to communicate with the hypothalamus.

I'm hijacking this a bit Rita....I had a hysterectomy and since have had difficulty in losing weight.  Also am insulin how can I counter this??

I've been doing Wheat Belly since Jan. '13.  I've not been sick since I began this program. That said though...this afternoon I feel a bit like I could be getting a sinus infection.  Have that low-grade headache across my eyebrows, feel just a tad off, drippy nose, scratchy/dry feeling in throat (which could be due to dry-mouth too).  Anyway, what-if I truly am getting one of these??  In my past I'd visit Urgent Care and would be put on antibiotics which very soon knock the thing out. on WB I really don't want to do that.  I do know about the neti-pot thing but other than that can any of you suggest things I can do to counter this??  Thanks ahead of time.

My head is "spinning"!  I'm a WB person!  Been doing it for over a year and a half.  I stalled (weight loss) maybe 4 to 5 mo. into it and am still there.  I'm T2d but well-controlled but in some of my readings I probably have candida.  I was just with a friend the other day who told me about Dr. Eric Berg's book on Fat Burning.  I'm beginning to feel over-whelmed with this theory and that theory.  My friend says that unless we can heal our adrenals nothing else will work well for us.  She told me that "IF" one has had their gall bladder taken out (according to this man) we can't digest coconut oil.  I eat a fair amount of it each day.

I pre-ordered Dr. D's book to come out the 16th of this month...waiting for what he says in his updates.  I'm a bit frustrated to say the least.  Oh I also had my regular check with my cholesterol has hit the high 200's at which she ordered statins for me.  I refuse to take them!!  I know I'm all over the board with this response and a bit off topic (forgive me) but wondering if anyone can give me words of wisdom.  Will ketosis not be a good thing for me?  What do we do for candida...really????

I think it was in April that I wanted to get even more serious with my health.  I decided to omit dairy and also focus on my "gut health" after beginning to read Grain Brain which speaks about "leaking gut".  Prior to that I'd invested in 3 supplements that Dr. Davis recommended to heal autoimmune issues (I have several).  Then Dr. Perlmutter suggested 7 more to focus on the healing of the I invested in those as well (though not the ones he sells from his website---way too spendy).  I'm going into my 3rd month and I'm thinking that I'm experiencing some healing as I don't have near the symptoms I'd been having prior.  These were some reflux, some tummy burning after eating spicey foods (I LOVE spicey!), lots of burping and more.  It's been gradual but just today I thought to myself...I really haven't felt much of the above in awhile now.  I know that I will need to continue my regime to come to total healing (as it took a lot of time to get unhealthy).  I will say I also quit taking nsaids as I could tell they were contributing to some of my discomfort.  Hopefully with the healthy eating and what I'm doing...the inflammations will disappear as well.  Just had to share!!!
