Miracle after a month, much better after a year, fantastic after two years! Last updated October 2013.
(A ✓ icon means that it's cured)
It was so uncontrollable I had to quit working and I spent holidays at home alone because I was embarrassed to be around other people.
✓ Gallbladder pain + vomiting
Completely gone now! I eat about 70% of calories from cholesterol and saturated fat every day.
My health was terrible.
✓ Constant hunger - unbearable hunger every hour that nearly made me kill people around me, my vision would go black, and I couldn't see anything. Someone had to hold me and guide me to a seat and grab me something to eat. It took a long time until my vision came back and I stopped shaking. This started around 2007 I think.
✓ Depression/Suicidal (Gone from hopelessly suicidal to cheerful about every little thing! No matter how bad things are, I'm always cheerful)
✓ Brain fog
✓ Unable to think logically (putting my hand in a running blender, grabbing a hot casserole from the oven with my bare hands, placing a hot pot on the floor and burning a hole)
✓ Clumsiness (at home, I guided myself by holding to the walls as I walked. Outside, I held on to a friend, and closed my eyes)
✓ Social anxiety / panic attacks
✓ Always too hot even in icy Maine winters; wearing just a T-shirt and still
✓ Unstoppable tremors
✓ Dilated pupils; extreme sensitivity to light (it was so painful I cried)
✓ Extreme sensitivity to noise
✓ Painful reaction to touch, I couldn't be hugged or caressed :-( It felt like my skin was burning
✓ Very very very bad reaction to even the slightest pain (things that wouldn't bother other people)
✓ Unbearable migraines, had to stay in bed and every little noise and light still hurt
✓ Large thyroid/goiter in my neck, now it's barely noticeable (I don't expect it to go away completely.)
✓ Bone pain (in lots of bones, they felt broken in half)
✓ Joint pain (I still get it if I eat bread and such... but! I can eat a whole loaf of real fresh sourdough bread with no problems. I can also eat baked products if the flour is fresh from a local farmer, and soaked in raw milk -- see Weston Price website on how to make grain safer to eat)
✓ Muscle weakness (dropping everything I picked up, a little book or a cup was too heavy)
✓ Granuloma annulare (scars on my hands and feet) (I can avoid it so long as the bread is sourdough, and flours are fresh, and soaked in raw milk)
✓ Constant thirst, no amount of water quenched it.
✓ Bloody nose after waking up, and often all day too
✓ Big painful sore on the left side of the top of my mouth; had this since I was a child (unless I eat grains for a few days in a row)
✓ Very long menstrual cycles (Rarely had a period, when I did they were really heavy and painful. Now 34 days apart, light, and not painful at all.)
✓ Painful dry skin, and in the winter it would crack and bleed.
✓ Racing heart. Used to be 130 - 150 bpm when resting, 180 or higher if I walked or tried to exercise. Now 80-90 bpm resting, 110-120 biking/exercising. (I'm not taking any medication)
✓ Very, very irregular heart beat. Now it's always regular.
✓/✘ Blood pressure. Now it's generally normal or borderline normal-high, which is much, much better than before. I'm happy with this, I feel good now, but I still get pressured to get it lower (I'm not taking BP medication, every time I try it makes me exhausted just walking down the street, even though without it I can walk for miles without getting tired )
✓Food intolerance: now I can eat all the foods I became intolerant to in 2010 (dairy, grains, peppers, apples, lettuce, nuts, tomatoes, and a lot more I can't remember). The first year I needed to eat chicken/beef stock every day, and Twin Labs enzymes, now I don't need to. Dairy is better if raw/unpasteurized. Sometimes I can get away with pasteurized, but unpasteurized never gives me any problems. Grains need to be prepared carefully, real sourdough, or soaked in yogurt or raw milk. I still chose to limit grains quite a bit, I don't want to rely on it too much, there's more nutritious foods.
Other stuff: no swollen ankles and wrists, no dark circles under my eyes, I wake up early without a clock and go to sleep early, I can breathe through my nose now instead of my mouth.
