Political correctness leaching its way into my Facebook mom’s group

I figure most of the people who come to this blog find out about it though my dad, Jordan Peterson. I’m happy about that, I don’t care how people get here, I just want them to know what kind of problems their diet is potentially causing. I generally avoid most of my dads “controversy” because I honestly think there are more important things for me to focus on. Mainly health. I also believe that mental illness accounts for a lot Read More

Pregnancy update – Week 32

Everything’s going great! Now that I’m not eating anything with sugar, my mood is good, no arthritis, seems pretty good. I’m starting to get pretty big. Getting around is getting weird. And I have to pee quite a bit.. Less than 2 months now until I have a child. So that’s incredibly weird. I still can’t believe that I can grow one inside of me… You’d think humans wouldn’t be phased by that but it’s still weird. My ankles have Read More

Olive brand that’s a-okay by me, (preservative free, etc.)

Hopefully this post will eventually be called “olive brandS that are preservative free”. I’m looking for olive brands that are only made with olives and salt, water or olive oil, and are preservative free. So far I have this brand: (and it is sooo good – you can also eat the olive oil it’s in after you’re done with the olives). http://stevesproduce-organics.com/products2.html It’s called silver leaf organic olives. The ingredients are olives and olive oil! They have a store locater Read More

New theory

Brace yourselves, this is a long one. For the last – almost 2 years, wow – I’ve been randomly cutting out foods and listening hard to my body’s response. Most of the reactions have been seemingly random. Some have been obvious looking back but not obvious at the time. This has been such a random and confusing process. My dad is doing the same thing as me as he seems to have a similar problem. I’ve been asked “how does this make Read More

Pregnancy update

So I AM starting to feel better (yayyyyyyy). I reacted to the lactose in my antihistamines but it’s been 18 days since I’ve taken them and I’m finally starting to feel better. I’m still a bit itchy, and some of my joints are still a bit stiff in the morning. My gums are no longer bleeding, I’m not crying every day, and my arthritis is better than it was in the last couple of weeks. In another 10 days I’ll Read More

Any suggestions for problem skin? Why yes!

I was going to type this up yesterday but my boyfriend ended up having laser eye surgery and needed some serious care. Instead of doing Lasik (the relatively painless laser eye surgery), he went for PRK. They shave a layer off your eye and it’s pretty painful growing back. He needed help deciding which eye surgery to go for (I suggested Lasik but ah well). After being through some serious surgeries I forget that things like laser eye surgery are Read More

Feeling better again

So after removing fish and the few fruit I could tolerate, my arthritis is going away, I’m less itchy again and my mood is improving. Also my face isn’t as puffy which is always nice. Being restricted in what you eat is difficult, but it’s especially difficult when you feel miserable, you’re hungry, AND you have to cook. If you feel good, cooking doesn’t seem like as big a deal. I had my IgG antibodies tested again. The antibody levels are slowly going down Read More

This diet is hard.

So a couple of weeks ago I realized I was reacting to fish. I’ve gotten much more sensitive since the pregnancy, and haven’t been able to keep my symptoms under control. They’re NOTHING like they used to be, but they’re still not fun. I’m pretty arthritic in the morning (I can’t really use my hands for the first couple of hours), and my big toe is really bugging me. Then there’s the fact I’m itchy, weepy, and generally unhappy. Again, Read More

Pregnancy woes SOLVED

Turns out I was wrong about all of the following: “So I was beginning to worry that being pregnant was just going to be full of arthritis and depression and skin problems. As soon as I get my health under control, pregnancy arrives and smacks me down. BUT I figured it out. Fuck you world, but good effort there. When I got pregnant I suddenly got more sensitive. I started reacting to tiny amounts of things in pills, a sip Read More

Pregnancy struggles

I haven’t had that difficult of a time so far (although I’m only at 15 weeks), but here’s what I’ve experienced so far: (All of the links I’ve posted are pills or things I use and are safe for people with food allergies – gluten, dairy, soy, sulphites, anything else you can think of probably. I’ve spent a long time trying to find these products and it’s been hard testing them out to make sure they’re safe. They’re affiliate links Read More
