SIBO?

SIBO = Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth Yup … that’s what we’re considering next as a potential issue! Never a dull moment round here that’s for sure! And NOOOO I’m not just sitting here Googling my symptoms! I mentioned in my earlier post today that I’d joined a “Beyond AIP” support group for people that weren’t…

Research Day(s)

Ok – this will no doubt be a long post … I’m just accumulating all my research in one spot for my reference … feel free to read, skim, or skip! The natural health consultant wrote: From everything I can see – almost every one of your symptoms is related to the enteritis.  No news…

Verrrrry Interesting!

So – my stellar researching sister came up with some very interesting information for me to read this morning that I thought I’d share / chronicle here for future reference. As always my chronicling of research can make for very long posts, so feel free to skim through or skip this post entirely (sorry folks…

AIP – How Long Is This Going To Take?

I’ve been having a hard time wrapping my head around my AIP (Auto Immune Protocol) situation some days. Granted it’s not that difficult to understand, but what my Functional MD set out for me as a plan is a little different, and I’ve also been restricted to “cooked” vegetables instead of “raw” … so that’s…

Socially Navigating Chronic Illness

This post came up in my Facebook feed last night (shared by the Autoimmune Wellness gals – so it comes up first – thank goodness for that feature)…..

The Blood Type Diet & Lectins – What’s The Deal?

I started researching The Blood Type Diet after my ND suggested I check which foods could be potential problems for my specific blood type. First of all, what is it? The basic idea of “Eat Right for Your Blood Type” – by Naturopathic Practitioner, Dr. D’Adamo, is this… D’Adamo claims that the foods you eat…

I personally purchase from Ki Aroma in Canada – great products, prices and exceptional customer service. ESSENTIAL OILS FOR DIGESTION If you suffer from digestive…

Wobenzyme

Finally getting around to researching this recommendation from my ND – this was on our original plan before I even found out I have EGE/EGID – it’s not cheap, but she said it will be one of the biggest helpers to get my body functioning properly again (and of course it’s from Germany!). The Gold…

Why Dry Brush?

Okay, so I started dry brushing two days ago at the recommendation of my Naturopathic Functional Medicine Practitioner to help me get rid of the swelling in my feet caused by the Prednisone I’m on for my EGE/EGID … and WOW! I’d read about dry-brushing in various health posts before but never really paid much…
