Yeah, I hear you. There's too much of a physiological dance going on to ever really know what's causing what. I'm pretty sure now that my depression was mostly due to high oestrogen, but my gut has been really inflamed for the last two days, UGH. Getting sick of it.

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
