I spoke with a Dr about what I could and couldn't eat. Maybe this will help someone. Since the erosion isn't bad, I can have my nuts seeds and beans with these rules. One reason nuts and seeds are a no no is they are hard to digest and if you swallow any without chewing them well your body produces excess acid to digest it. So I can have crushed nuts and seeds and nut butters. I can have dry beens I cook myself, if I wash them several times during the cooking process and cook them well, but not caned beans.

Because of your medical history with animal protein, you really DO need an appointment with a Registered Dietitian who can take your medical history etc. into account.

It is one thing to CHOOSE to be vegan, but quite another to have it forced on you for medical reasons (or ANY reason!)

BIG hugs,
Kris

It is a long story why, but I lost the ability to digest animal protein, the ability to digest isn't natural. After several years of no meat anyone would loss the ability to digest it. If I can digest meat I would have to start with a teaspoon or less of meat ground up like baby fro and slowly, very slowly build up. 5 years ago I had some potato soup that had been cooked with a ham bone and the bone removed. I doubled over with cramps.

I was on calcium, iron and B12 long before I was made a vegetarian. I have blood work blood work done every year. This year they added D.

Can I ask you why your Dr said NO animal products? That was 33 years ago, and it is quite possible that studies have shown that for whatever reason you were told that, doesn't apply now.

Where it comes to Reflux, not everyone feels pain with it, strange as it may seem.

I think that you would be best to ask your Dr to refer you to a Registered Dietitian. I am not only concerned about the Reflux, but also that you may be lacking other nutrients - things like Vitamin B12 (I hope your Dr checks this regularly) and calcium I would imagine that your diet could possibly have set you up for osteoporosis, too. Have you had any fractures, and if so, was it from something relatively innocent? If so, that is a consideration re your diet, too.

Most of us know what foods to eliminate based on the feed-back our body gives us, but as yours doesn't work like a lot of us, it isn't a case of that applying. Not everything affects everyone the same.

Good luck,
Kris

I hope someone out there can help. A vegan would be nice. 33 years ago the Dr told me NO animal products, none, nada, zilch. For those if you that don't know what meat is. no beef, chicken, fish, hotdogs, pepperoni, pork, lamb, or bacon. These are things people have said but you can eat, they aren't meat. 2 weeks ago the Dr said I had acid reflux, yes the Dr had to tell me, I don't feel any pain. If I under stand what I'm reading right I'm not to have nuts, beans or soy. So what protein should I be eating?
