I’m on day 3 of my first whole 30. I read last night about some medications that are not ok on this. I take prescriptions, a multivitamin, several supplements, and several Acetaminophen pills every day. This is my first time doing Whole 30, and I want to be completely compliant, mainly because of how sick I’ve been feeling. Looking at my vitamin, supplements, and pain pill I see things that are not compliant in all of them. However, I’ve had several surgeries on my stomach and my absorption level is low. I’ve been told to take a multivitamin (woman’s formulation daily), iron (365 Ferrous Sulfate daily), D3 (5000 mg daily), B12 (5000 mg daily), and Calcium (500 mg 3x daily). I just am not sure what’s compliant and what’s not. I’m not worried about my prescription meds, they trump anything I could find wrong with them. I’m also not in a place where I can stop taking my supplements or pain relief (Acetaminophen is the only pain reliever that I can take), I just want to know if there are forms out there that are completely ok with the program. I also usually take biotin and keratin daily, but I can go without those. Included are all the ingredients in my vitamin, supplements, and pain relief...
Hi all! I've got a good Whole30 story, I believe. I'm on Day 26 of my second Whole30. I felt great at about Day 11 and then starting feeling worse and worse. Headaches came back and bloating/constipation and itching and slight hives, nausea, insomnia, all not so fun stuff. Anyhow, the headache got so awful this week that I wound up in the ER yesterday. They gave me a drug cocktail of Benadryl, Tordal (for pain), and Phenergan (for nausea). I felt weird at first and slightly anxious and then it made me really out of it and I got discharged and sent home and slept last night for 13 hours, which I really needed after the insomnia nights recently. On one of those insomnia nights, I did some research online and suspected (now confirmed because my headache is gone) that I am one of the 1% that is histamine intolerant. I had been eating copious amounts of spinach, avocado, leftovers with meat, tomato, among bananas and coconut. I believe the extreme headache (a migraine - which I've never had before this), was caused by eating all these foods and a stressful lifestyle as I have four young children and am on call 24/7 as a birth doula and am starting an online business. I am now going to change my Whole30 to the low histamine version and stay on it for awhile longer to feel better. I am a bit perplexed as to what to eat, but I will continue to look for recipes that are low histamine Whole30 compliant. This histamine intolerance explains SO much about past issues I've had such as allergies, constipation, upset stomach, itching, hives, insomnia, anxiety, etc. I hope this post helps someone out there!
