Food Intolerances : DAIRY

PostPosted: Wed Sep 20, 2017 11:23 am    Post subject: How do you deal with setbacks? Reply with quote

Hi all,

I was feeling a bit better, and started to eat more types of food (still no dairy or gluten)... but then in the last day or so, the D and stomach cramping have returned. I have back-pedaled and now am just drinking broth and taking pepto.

How do you deal with setbacks like this? I feel very discouraged. How long do you think until I can add back in some other types of food?

Does this happen sometimes during recovery? Do you have a certain number of good days, and then some bad ones too? Or am I doomed?

Thank you! Kim

Also, I should note that I have had a terrible sinus infection and have been needing to take cough syrup - could this have triggered it?

Food Intolerances : Gluten, casein, soy, and avenin, (avenin is the prolamin in oats, which is equivalent to the gluten in wheat), beef, grapes, peanuts, cashews, almonds, (but nut butters seem OK except for peanuts), citric acid, chocolate, and agar.

It might have been the cough syrup, but adverse reactions to adding foods (or even to no changes, sometimes) are very common during recovery. Even the sinus infection itself might have caused the setback. Rest assured you're not doomed. You're just having the same experiences as the rest of us. Very Happy If we have a setback, we do what you're doing and shrug it off as a part of living with MC.

We're all different, but it took me about a year and a half before I was able to successfully add a food (corn) back into my diet. Recovery is a tenuous and vulnerable stage of life.

I'm going to bet it was a few things and they all seem to work against one another during the recovery/healing stage.

If Stress doesn't flare it, then one tiny ingredient can....

I ate three food items for as long as I could tolerate them and seasoned them with sea salt and drank water or plain coffee.

Hang in there...each day is a step towards healing when one is really trying....and you are because you are here!
