Wow! This is all great info. I appreciate all your contributions and sharing your experience with me.
I just recently got done with antibiotics for H Pylori and my gut is feeling so much better. The other thing that showed was severe gluten intolerance. I am now treating myself like a celiac and wow! What a difference for my digestion! The bloating, gas, diarrhea, pain etc is gone. I am so thankful.
The next health hurdle is the hormones. They've never been regular. PCOS endometriosis, hyperplasia,
I'm thinking it is all connected with low progesterone but I'm saving up money to pursue testing.
Right now I am managing the pain of Endo with birth control pills so I only bleed once every three months. Since getting treated for h pylori and 100% gluten free no more pain!! I am hopeful that I may be able to go off bcp to get to the root issue of my hormones.
Hmmm, you ladies have given me much to think about. I definitely see some common things among the approaches. There were no potato chips today and when I was hungry I munched on beef heart jerky and bone broth.
The Fast Metabolism Diet sounds interesting. I'm going to check it out.
