    Laura Austin got a reaction from Karen in Easing into Whole30 when most food hurts   
    Thanks Michaela. I am not sure if I was tested for H. Pylori. I doubt I was tested for GERD. I am on enzymes now, not sure if they are helping or not...
    Just thought I would update. I couldn't deal with switching my diet so drastically, and decided to add eggs and almonds back in. I seem to be tolerating them just fine, though it's impossible to know with 100% certainty since I didn't reach baseline (a complete absense of symptoms). The stomach burning seems to be gone, though I still get a bit of tenderness here and there. I've kept coffee and nightshades out, and of course the standard grains/sugar/dairy/legumes. Today is day 13, and I think I'm feeling better, overall. One day at a time.

    Laura Austin reacted to lfroyen in milk supply issues while on Whole30?   
    I also experienced a drop in supply early in my Whole30 when I used to have oversupply and I discussed it with my lactation consultant. She said that inflammation can cause oversupply and that by eliminating inflammation-causing foods my levels of inflammation should be dropping and that my supply will regulate to a more normal level. I just thought I'd pass that on!

    I've known for a long time: deliberately seeking true health is a subversive act. Fight the power! Fight the arrogant ignorance! Fight crass and shameless monetary gain at the expense of the wellness of our species!

    Find a different daycare! There will be one that is willing to accommodate YOUR needs! Especially if you're sending food, it's no skin off their nose to give it to her.
    Is there a Nourishing Traditions group in your area? I'd reach out to them and see if someone there can recommend a place.

    Laura Austin reacted to kb0426 in Unsupportive Doctors??   
    I think the training they receive, based on antiquated beliefs and false information, is what makes some of them unsupportive.
    If you stated that you eat a diet rich in healthy proteins, lots of veggies and some fruits, and healthy fats, without stating what you are not eating, they may react differently. Why we MUST eat grains is simply beyond my comprehension!

    I think it's the aliteration. People like aliteration.
