Has anyone tried this diet or something similar? I see that we all are different and react differently to foods and environment etc.
for what its worth, I thought I would share somethings that have been going on with me which may or may not he helpful to you. And I wanted to say thank you for your support and for helping me out, I have learned so much more by reading posts and comments from this group.
i started doing this Auto immune protocol for my Hashimotos issues about 3 months ago and feel it has been helping alot. This “diet/ lifestyle change” is about cutting out possible inflamatory foods such as: gluten, dairy, refined sugars & night shades. I ordered Sarah Ballantyne’s books, the Aip informational book as well as the cook book which has alot of good information as well as recipes.
Im not sure if im allergic to all of these things that they call to eliminate but I think Im sure Ill find out eventually.
After eliminating these foods for 3 months (with 3 days that I cheated) I been less brain fogged, a little more energy, and the inflamation/ pain has gone down. This in combination with a all dose of t3 (5mcg) i have been able to get out of bed and get more things done. I am not quite 30 years old and am excited/ impatient for continual improvement.
The first couple months were very difficult. My took a long time to adjust without sugar and carbs etc. and figuring put what to cook was really hard with cery low energy. However my family and I adjusted and it was worth it for me. But there are still some symptoms i struggle with and think that although eliminating these foods help, i dont think it will heal everything, atleast right away. To name a few things for an example, I am struggling with horrible danruff and get itchy on my body (I’m think this is a candida issue) as well as still hard to fall asleep and my memory is still poor and brain can be slow. I think extra nutrients is required to get your body healed up more quickly.
Is anyone else going through something similar? Have you started looking more into your diet and or eliminated more food items than just gluten?
I recently did a hair analysis, adrenal, and allergy test and should be getting these back soon. Hopefully they will provide more details into what my body is lacking and reacting to.
