Scientific Article Hypothesizing EXACTLY My Hypothesis on Food Reactions

Okay, first, I don’t want to take responsibility for this hypothesis because obviously other people have come to the same conclusions. But I did come to this conclusion a couple of years ago and its suuuuper exiting to see other people writing about it. Here‘s the link the paper, the abstract is pretty good… But if you want to read the whole thing you can go to this sneaky Russian website and download it free by putting in the URL Read More

How To Help With Reaction/Mood Symptoms

When I test out a food and it goes badly, or if I accidentally consume something that I react to, there are a number of things I can do that can ease the recovery. Infrared Saunaing – see my blog post. I’ll sauna every day, and if it’s a bad reaction, twice a day between days 8-13 (after the consumption of the food). I usually stop saunaing at about day 16. Activated Charcoal – if I know right away I’ve Read More

Infrared Saunaing – Basically The Greatest Thing Ever

When I react to something, I use an infrared sauna. I’m super lucky to have access to one. I would say it improves my mood by about 20%, as well as energy levels, and gets rid of the itching I get from these reactions as well. I sit in there for 30-40 minutes. I’m not sure if it’s removing the toxins that make me feel better, or if it does some sort of mitochondrial invigoration… Christine is my dad’s grad student Read More

Do You Suffer From Cracked Heels?

Good news! Your feet aren’t dry. It’s not from wearing “bad shoes”, they don’t need moisturizer, and Lufa isn’t going to help. Fortunately, it’s easier than that. This actually wasn’t even a food problem for me. It was a chemical problem. Soaps made by the companies Palmolive (and I also believe Dove), seriously irritate my skin. Mom and Dad both had cracked heels too which resolved when they changed shampoos and soaps. I just suggested to one of my friends that Read More

Filtered Water

I used to scoff at filtered water, and I actually liked the taste of tap water better. Actually at the beginning of the diet when I was paranoid about everything I was eating, Andrey (my husband) told me not to drink tap water and I basically told him he was the paranoid one… Be very careful about what you scoff at, I swear every single thing I’ve scoffed at I now believe -_-. I haven’t done much research into why Read More

Alcohol

The good news is, even though we are so sensitive to food, alcohol doesn’t seem to be a problem! Rejoice in small miracles. The bad news is its dependant on the type of alcohol.   Here are the ones that are okay: Whiskey (Bourbon and American Whiskey labeled “straight” whiskey. Most other whiskeys have caramel colouring made from burnt sugars.) Vodka – Make sure it’s unflavoured. Ciroc (original) is excellent. Silver tequila – It’s bottled right after distillation. Gold tequila adds Read More

Hangover Cure

Seriously. I’ve been taking this since I was binge drinking in University, you can go to their website and look at the studies on rats. If it works on rats, it works on me. I take 2 pills per 3 drinks. They started making a stronger formula though so I just ordered a bunch of that to test out. If you’re in Canada: www.dhmdepot.com Or if you’re in the states you can go here for the ones I’ve tried or Read More

FAQ

What is your take on lemons? I haven’t tried lemons. The pure lemon juice that comes in bottles can contain sulfites, but lemons don’t show up high on the IgG test, and they don’t have much sugar so they can’t be that bad (if bad at all). I just haven’t tested them out on myself so I don’t know yet. There doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with them though. Do you drink green tea? Green tea is fine! I’ll Read More

What Living with Depression and Anxiety Is like (Throw Some OCD Symptoms in There Too)

I was put on antidepressants at a young age. Severe depression runs in my family and thankfully my dad had realized what it was and saw it early in me. (It is controllable by diet but there seems to be a genetic component as well). I can barely control it with diet. Messing up is so easy and if I wasn’t as stubborn as I am, I wouldn’t be able to handle all the home cooking and research. Thankfully, I Read More

Blurb from 2014 on Depression – What Depression Is Like

I wrote this after an argument with a friend where I was told having depression was basically whining. August 20, 2014 You know what sucks? Arthritis. Pain. Multiple joint replacements. Weekly injections. Chronic pain. Not being able to run or do sports. You know what’s worse? Depression. The depression I have feels like my close friend died last month and no matter what fun thing I do there’s still the underlying grief there, all the time. I can laugh at something Read More
