Today I saw my doctor (integrative) for my ongoing hormonal & digestive issues. She believes I have systemic inflammation and all the symptoms for leaky gut (this I already figured out). She gave me a hypoallergenic diet to follow for 3 weeks, which contains some fruit. I wasn't sure if the fruit included would be ok, since I have issues with histamines. She also said I have to ROTATE foods every day - eat different foods from the list each day otherwise I might develop intolerance for foods that I could tolerate before. This is scary, since I have a list of "safe" foods I eat every day to keep my symptoms at bay.
Another thing she recommended was to start using the sodium chloride drops a naturopath had given me 2 years ago. I was using them on and off, but when I started getting hives I stopped everything I was taking (including vitex, which I never had issues with before) because I didn't know exactly what was raising my histamines. She said those drops might help with acidity. Anyone heard of that? I got them from Europe, and it was a custom remedy - I couldn't find them here.
Myomin was also recommended to filter out excess estrogens. Anyone heard of it???I'm guessing it works kind of like DIM, but she recommended this one instead.
Also, she told me to keep using glutathione supplements to help with healing. The problem is that l-glutathione only works short term for me, then I have to take a break. I started taking Free Radical Defenze for both glutathione and to lower histamines. The ingredients are:
- Catalase, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD- useful for mast cells), protease, alpha lipoic acid, and glutathione. ---> how does this sound?
And here are the foods I'm supposed to pick and choose from each day. Is there anything on the list that might cause problems (e.g. beans, lentils - even if they are not canned?)? I'm supposed to follow it for at least 3 weeks, then begin to reintroduce foods.
beef, beef weiners
beets <---Might raise histamines???
blueberries <--- might raise histamines?
vegetable shortening/ milk-free oleomargarine
maple syrup or cane syrup
olive oil <--- I use grapseed, I think it's better but should I stop using it for a while?
sugar (cane or beet only)
plums <-- These give me gas, I should prob avoid
poi <-- what is this???
prunes <-- cause gas
soybeans & soy milk (not sure about this, if I also have estrogen dominance)
tapioca (whole or pearl, not minute) <---- Where can I get plain tapioca?
white vinegar <--- I thought all vinegar should be banned to prevent candida overgrowth?
white soda (?!?!)
