Avatar m tn He told me to never eat ne thg that u could break such as raw carrots, apples, the normal diet foods because of gases they cause. I have to have colonoscopy every three years due to bleeding polyps, n other thgs. They usually do an upper GI as well. Last time they took couple biopsies due to my stomach lining being so red n irritated. Came back ok thank the Lord! Don't like water at all. I do drink Crystal Light n Sweet Tea n Light Lemonaide.
Avatar f tn So here are some natural methods to relieve the symptoms of Fibromyalgia Dietary Guidelines -The daily diet should include milled flax seed, 3 or more tbsp., or cold-pressed, unrefined flax seed oil. Flax seed and its oil contain the essential fatty acid omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid, which the body converts into hormone-like substances called prostaglandins. Prostaglandins help relieve the inflammation of fibromyalgia.
Avatar n tn pigged out Sat and Sun and started a 750 cal diet on Monday when I received a 2nd shot. I have been hungry and ate foods off my diet. I am a little discouraged and not sure what to do. I am supposed to get three 250 iu shots a week and it will cost $50.00 per week. They also had a doctor do blood work and gave me an ekg, which I paid 60.00 for. I need to lose 60 lbs, ugh....
Avatar n tn It is all about the money with them and I can't believe they do not know exactly what is going on. Your thoughts on diet are the same as mine. Eating raw foods is what we were designed to eat. Getting these nutrients allows the body to heal itself. Another book which explains this is "The Makers DIet" which was written by a person who cured himself of Crohns disease through his diet.
Avatar n tn Right now it's an area starting at my spine below my ribcage, and wrapping around my side to the front a bit. It's a sensation that my skin is raw, as if it's been scraped or carpet-burned. Any contact with the area feels exactly as if I'm touching raw tender skin (probably less painful) and the discomfort seems to be just skin-deep. There is never a rash or injury of any kind, and I can't trace it to any kind of lifestyle thing, activity, detergent, etc.
Avatar n tn I am sensitive to both and have cured both my muscle problems and gastro problems on a low sal/sulphtie diet. If I stray off the diet then my symptoms return. It is a very restrictive diet so not for the faint hearted.. but to me it is worth the lack of food to be pain free and free of gastro problems. I was diagnosed by a hospital allergist I am not self diagnosed.. these conditions exist!
Avatar n tn Hi! Is anyone starting the HCG diet on Black Friday? I will be doing it 4 weeks thanksgiving to christmas? Do you want to start a support group?
483733 tn?1326802046 I have not read the book, but find diet is VERY important. Personally, I find that Organic Heavy Whipping Cream (not homogenized) will heal my mouth ulcers quicker than anything else...often over-night. I never eat any diary which is not organic, usually only the cream & butter (I whip it with organic fax seed oil from the fridge section, not the shelf), some plain yogurt with live cultures, very rarely eat any cheese, and milk--never. I grew up with organic raw milk...that I could drink.
1550149 tn?1340004330 Deficiencies of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are rare, since they are manufactured by the body, and the key to increasing their production is consuming a healthy diet that contains meats, eggs, good fats, low carbs, no sugars, no processed foods, etc. as well as improving digestion. Also see the candida diet and the main candida article for details about the candida diet. Also see information about healthy diets in Foods that Damage, Foods that Heal.
Avatar f tn has anyone tried coconut oil to treat fibromyalgia with any success? My fibro started after a viral infection...then I had terrible muscle spasms and a strange weakness in my neck, as though I could not hold up my head. I had a lot of pain in my hips, buttocks, and upper back in the trapezius area. I was at the end of perimenopause and I had recently stopped taking birth control pills. The spasms stopped after a couple of months and my doctor put me on trazadone.

Avatar n tn i had lyme (although my symptoms weren't digestive) and it inspired me to make drastic changes in my diet. i'm now on a totally raw, vegan, high-fruit diet, similar to the 811/hcrv diet on 30bananasaday.com. good luck!
1462810 tn?1327364049 They say it takes one month of eating completely healthy to make up for every year of being sick, so my budget was about twenty years short. Who knew eating super-healthy was so expensive? On the mostly raw diet I lost 86 pounds, my skin cleared up, my fibromyalgia became a thing of the past, and I never got sick. Right now I'm on my third viral infection since the change in diet (the flu, a head cold, and now this...

Avatar m tn A team of scientists from Yale University and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, in Germany, have scientifically shown that the sodium in processed foods is a STRONG trigger of autoimmune disease. Hundreds of millions of people who are suffering with Hashimoto's (thyroid), multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, type 1 diabetes, and more. In fact, AIl disorders have increased sharply in the last 50 years and now we're discovering more reasons why.
Avatar m tn Drink Kiefer with probiotic's in it with chia seed, flax seeds, T coconut oil raw, vanillin flavoring, raw honey, 2 eggs, half an avocado and 1cup frozen pineapple. All organic.

Avatar f tn Go to the doctor and get some drugs which often have severe side effects or you can chose to follow a healthy life style by eating the proper foods. Why not give a healthy diet a try. It cost less and I haven't heard of any side effect to eating raw fruits and vegetables. Hippocrates the father of western medicine stated, "Let the food be your medicine and the medicine be your food". The ancient Greeks knew what it took for good health.
Avatar f tn Low carb, low dairy, no nightshades, take alkalizing foods, no pro-inflammatory cooking oils, no margarines, no artificial and no processed/junk foods, take plenty fresh vegetables. 2. MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) powder supplementation. (start with 1/4 teaspon x 2 daily) with juice or water. The sulfur component of this, being one of the three top oxygen transporters to the cells in the body that is available inexpensively and safe, is a great anti-inflammatory agent.
Avatar n tn I don't know why, but I think it is because it is a plant based food. I believe eating the more raw veggies and other plant based foods is my best option until the doc tells me otherwise. I am not particularly fond of veggies so have to kind of sneak them in my diet or eat them while I am doing something else I enjoy such as watching a ballgame or reading. I am not sure where soy fits in this picture, but do know when I drank only soy milk I never had an attack.
1353650 tn?1429466974 Testing came back equivocal for lyme ( this means needs further testing which wasn't done) and was told I didn't have it, along with slightly elevated sed rate, and an elevated rheumatoid factor.

199177 tn?1490502134 Dietary Approaches to Treating Pain Some people believe that changing dietary fat intake and/or consuming plant foods that contain anti-inflammatory agents can help ease pain by limiting inflammation. A mostly raw vegetarian diet was found helpful for some people with fibromyalgia, but this study was not randomized and was without a control group.
Avatar n tn low calorie diet and exercise.
Avatar n tn His pain is so bad today sometimes he can not get off of the couch, and sometimes cant move his fingers. We suspect it might be related to fibromyalgia that has developed, and he also has symptoms of gout. The digestive issues, he can not eat anything without having diarrhea. We have seen a gastro for that and they found nothing after doing all of the tests.
Avatar f tn Has your doc recommended a high complex carb diet, which are whole grains only and also foods that are high in proteitn. If you stick to this type of diet the chances of you getting diabetes lessens. I have a strong family history of diabeties with my father and brother were both on Insulin. I did try metformin for a short time and felt horrible with it. I never had high blood sugars and my A1C is normal. I stopped the metformin wih my doctors approval.
Avatar f tn Cretans certainly consumed a lot of olive oil and fish and drank healthy portions of red wine, but they were also part of a culture and landscape that supported the production and enjoyment of beneficial foods. Their diet cannot be easily reproduced.
