Hi, everybody

I'm posting this post to let you know how I'm doing with Cholestyramine. In the month of March I have gone from taking 0.5 grams daily to 0.5 grams every other day. Strict diet, although an ounce of hard cheese or chocolate from time to time, but gluten, soy and dairy free.

I have been without symptoms for a month and a half. I have been traveling for two weeks and an excess of gluten free bread, biscuits (too much sugar) I got back the WD and loses.but only for two days.

I have come back to the strict diet and I am again ok.The key to improving my health has been proteins, strict diet, vit D and Magnesium. Cholestyramine helps a lot, but i'll try to leave it next month and see what happens.

I hope this information is interesting for some of you.
I will keep you informed of my evolution.

Thank you for the help I have received from so many people here.
Best wishes for your health

Hello everybody

Its a month since my last post , here is an update.

Since 4/12/2017 without Cholestyramine and no meds. and doing well except for three days in which I had little liquid looses. I was taking magnesium chloride I think magnesium chloride is the culprit of my first day not feeling well, for the second day I had brunch in a bar, perhaps the little wine I drank, and the chicken that I thought was cooked the day before caused my looses. The third bad day I had a very large meal, and this is something I cannot afford. Anyway, no WD, just a few drops and only lasted for these days. For the rest of the time I have been great.

I introduced in my April diet: peanuts, kiwi, potato chips, almond milk, Spanish omelette, cocoa, raw tomato and carrots, eggplant, ham, paella melon, pumpkin seeds, red pepper, walnuts, liver of veal and raw oranges and apples.

I have now a problem of halitosis that I had never had, so I am taking out of my May diet dark chocolate, cocoa, kiwi, oranges, red pepper and potato chips, I hope the esophageal reflux stop.

I have tried three days a small amount of gluten (cake) and nothing happened. My plan is to stop trying it, I dont want any problems.
That's all for now. Ill keep you posted.

I would appreciate any comments.

Best wishes











I should appreciate any comment.

Avoiding the items you named should help to stop the reflux.

It sounds as though you are doing well without the cholestyramine.

Update. May 2017

I fail in my attempt to leave Cholestyramine , but happy with my health situation.

During the month of May I had liquid loses 3 days. In order to cope with this situation I have taken Cholestyramine for 13 days at the rate of 1 gram per day.
I have eliminated from my diet seeds, pears, gluten free noodles and corn that I think were the cause of the problems I have had.
I am currently four days without medication and ok.

After Reading the book The Plants Paradox, I eliminated peanuts, potato chips, eggplants, melon and pumpkin seeds. I refuse to remove the rice and gluten free bread that never have been a problem for me.

What do you think of The Plants Paradox and its author?. Perhaps this diet can be one more help to fight this disease. At the moment and following this diet I have been eating raw lettuce for 7 days without any problem and reduced the intake of animal proteins.
It would be interesting that everyone who has read this book would give us an opinion about it.

Best wishes to you all

I haven't read the book, but I think the author is on the right track. Antinutrients in plants are a major cause of leaky gut and leaky gut is a prerequisite to the development of food sensitivities.
