A nice little message to pass onto you today. This is a person who is down to very few foods and is trying to follow the truly gluten free principles, even though she cannot yet tolerate any of the Barrier protocol (it took me well over a year to get those in so I know how frustrated she is!)
All in all I am slowly getting there, veeeerrrrryyyy slowly and the road is surely not yellow bricked ;o) But I am getting there, thanks to you!! Even tho I can’t follow the barrier protocol (YET!!) I have made more progress following your advice then all the years of running from hospital to hospital. Onwards and upwards!
That is really nice to hear. She is always so upbeat and hopeful.
Whilst chatting, we discovered we had both had an infection to cope with recently. We both have managed to control them with natural substances without recourse to allergen-containing antibiotics, thank goodness. My gums came up again and have been a right **!^*** for the past month. I wasn’t sure if it was a reaction to something (very probably rhubarb sprayed with a corn pesticide and a party where I was surrounded by gluteny foods, I reckon) since I had migraines as well, so I stopped all protocol supplements except Vit D (anti-inflammatory), zinc (aids tissue healing) and probiotics in case and ate very soft safe foods to aid recovery. I’m not quite there yet, but it is improving at last, thank goodness; I can’t describe the pain to you and wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy!
So, what do you do when this happens, because it is going to?!
Get right back on track as soon as you can; don’t let it throw you off your journey to wellness. We ARE going to be ill sometimes with other stuff like colds, viruses, infections etc not just reactions. But I think consistency is going to be the key to gaining barrier strength. I have started back on most supplements again today, am annoyed it has put me back a few weeks, but I will not be put off my stride if I can help it. And neither should you. Here endeth the lecture. Wish me gums speedy healing!
