Internetmom Posted November 15, 2014 Share Posted November 15, 2014 I am new to the forum. I have had local support through my whole 30 and have been able to stay on plan. At the end of 30 days I decided to continue, but add the auto-immune protocol since I did not have the result of increase energy or pain relief. I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto's and have had it a long time along with some Arthritis and Bursitis, so I wasn't too surprised. On the auto-immune plan, the only thing I have not eliminated is eggs. I will eliminate them starting Monday. I drink plenty of water, have been going to bed early to get plenty of sleep. I still need to add regular exercise. I sit at a computer all day for my work and I know I don't move enough. My major concern is that I still have frequent acid reflux. Could the eggs be the cause? They never previously caused reflux. (I should probably add that I had been taking the anti-inflamitory drug Voltarin for a couple of years, plus 40 mg prescription Omeprazile a day, to make it so I could take the Voltarine.) I stopped all my meds except thyroid for the Whole 30. I did taper off, but I guess not well enough because I have only begun to have less reflux recently.) Has anyone else had similar problems and found remedies? Ginger tea eases it some, but aloe has not helped. Second, the last few days I have been experiencing constipation. Not horrible, but I got used to being very regular. I haven't changed what I am eating. Lots of organic vegetables, a little organic fruit, clean proteins, filtered water, and of course the eggs, local organic uncaged eggs. She calls them happy eggs since the hens get to stay with the rooster. Is constipation a common cycle when cleansing the body while having an auto-immune disease? I don't expect medical advice, just wonder if anyone else has dealt with this and what I might do to help it. Thanks, Mary Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
