IBS/Food Intolerances/FODMAP.
..a new path

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Today I met with a nutritionist in hopes that I could get ANOTHER opinion on possible solutions to my digestive issues (bloating, swelling etc).
After reviewing everything I have done so far and the tests (blood allergy, environmental allergy, ALCAT) she recommended a different food intolerance test and jumping into the FODMAP "diet" for a few weeks to see if that will help.
So, now I have to go through the approved FODMAP foods and eliminate the dairy, soy, gluten and the other foods I react to.....and see what's left.

I'm willing to try anything at this point. I'm hopeful that it will help. We'll see.
On the bright side, I had to pull the brownies that I just made out of the freezer and share them with my family to get them out of the house before I started this tomorrow! lol

Keep your fingers crossed for me!

    I'm so hopeful that you're going to get some more good, solid answers! I feel like I need to do a lesser version (maybe just a good few-day cleanse?) again myself. But the thought of chicken and brown rice for three days is just too much! (Such a baby considering what we've both been through already.

    Have you ever tried or considered some version of Paleo? I'm intrigued by the grain-inflammation connection idea, but then again, my stomach is its calmest on the chicken and rice diet.

    Anyway, sending you good thoughts, dear friend. You certainly deserve some relief!
