stanfordgal Posted October 15, 2014 Share Posted October 15, 2014 I'm extremely intrigued by the Whole30 and want to give it a shot. But I'm still in treatment for Lyme and some other conditions, taking a mostly herbal protocol. I was all ready to start the Whole30 program when I learned that (a) the Bromelian supplement my doctor requires contains rice flour, and there isn't another equivalent product on the market that doesn't have this ingredient and ( the probiotics I require (I need at least 100 Billion CFUs right now) contain either "trace" amounts of gluten/dairy/soy OR maltodextrin. I believe my migraine medicines (Rx) also have some starch. I have found ways to replace all of my other necessary supplements (magnesium, vitamin B2) with what appear to be compliant manufacturers (e.g., Natural Calm unflavored). Is it still worthwhile for me to do the Whole30 program, or will the small amounts of bad ingredients in my medicines make the whole thing a waste of time - I won't feel any better and I won't learn anything about what may trigger my migraines, insomnia, anxiety? I just started the new herbal anti-Lyme/Bartonella protocol with a new integrative medicine doctor, so I don't want to just "select" which parts of the protocol I follow. Please advise.
