Dry curd cottage cheese. AKA farmer's cheese or dripped yogurt.

And knowing so little about the FUNCTION of any of them, they plough on with dollar signs in their eyes?

Oh geez... that's the thing about being called a god-dess... I'm now beholden to produce! :

I meant a hormonal connection with Patty's endrometriosis and gut pain. Endo can invade the intestines.

And God-desses don't screw up as much as I have in the last 24 hours...

I'm running around like a nutcase trying to pack and cook food for vacation. And in the process have ruined a gallon and a half of goat yogurt and 4 very expensive cups of macadamia nuts.

Why can't I just learn to slooooooow down already.

Hmmm, does that mean I can buy quark instead of dccc? I know that they sell quark at my coop, which seems to be much more in stock than the dccc.

And thanks for the custard recipe. Course, I see I don't have enough dccc to make it and the last 3 times I was at the coop then didn't have any more. :

Alright, all of this enzyme stuff has me beyond confused and probably sad.
Background info. About 4 years ago I had NAET done for some excema that was related to an egg allergy (according to muscle testing). Excema cleared up, and I no longer had an egg intolerance. As far as I could tell, anyhow.
The last few months, I started into healing the gut, but not really hard core. I was using candidase and virastop for about 6 weeks, I did see an improvement, but couldn't really afford to keep up. Plus DD was really acting strange (hyper, sleeping issues), but that isn't really new for her
As I cut back on the enzymes, I started getting HORRIBLE stomach pains that would last 5 hours. It was gas, but really severe, like my stomach was completely rejecting the food I ate. Particularly first thing in the morning. I would vomit and that would cut the pain back to about 3 hours, but certainly would not get rid of it. As far as I can figure, it was all egg related. Since I have removed the egg from my diet, no pain.

SOOO, my question in point or whatever
is that did the NAET just make my body ignore the reaction to egg?? Then the healing re-activated it? Or did the enzymes damage my gut? Or am I just so messed up that there are no real answers?
I completely quit the enzymes last week, once the pain became a regular part of my day. I am scared to start on them again. I am also scared to eat anything new. And I am not eating SCD at all, more NT without meat now.
Sorry this is so long of a post/rant/question/breakdown! Any ideas????

Mamajessica,

I just read on this thread I usually dont post but when i seen your post I had to respond cause I to have the same issues with my stomach that you have. I feel as if My food is rejected or just sits there and ferments. The amt of gas I get is unbeleiveable and hte pain from the gas and bloating is enough to make me NOT eat at all. I joked wiht my kids the other day when it was real bad that I was Baruka from Charlie and hte Chocolate facotry and was soon gonna blow up into a big HUGE ball. My stomach was rock hard at this point. I really dont kow where to start what to do. I cant do to the Dr cause I dont have insurance and cant afford for all the test they wasnt to run me through and worse I wouldnt take the MEDS any way so whats the point. I see a wonderful Chiro who is very very knowledgeable so he helps where he can I seen him yesterday and said my stomach and intestines felt inflammed and yesterday was a good day . I also have a problem with my illiosacral valve (sp). I just wanted to chime in and let you know you are not alone at all and I know how painful and frustrating it is.

Hugs
amy

Note to self: Instead of reading the harry potter series for the 8th or 9th time, read stuff by Price to get up to Jane's knowledge level.....

Well My lurking has taken a different turn. I'm pregnant now with #2 and will continue to lurk through. I'm right now looking for milk Keifer grains. Hopefully this wil be a healthy pregnancy. I'm still working on the candida diet, doing GF ,dairy free ( other than plain yogert and keifer) and vinager free. Complex carbs only ( kinda doing my own thing.)

Anyone had a good pregnancy through this.

I dont have any symptoms other than indegetion, not egzma or allergies ect.

[

The issues started not with the gut, but with huge pain last September, down the long bones of the thigh and upper arms, with pain in the muscles near those bones. Also I wake up with a very sore stiff back. And at times have pressure heads and feel as if my balance isn't right. I went to the doc then, and they ran every test they could think and it only came back with post menopause hormone levels (though my periods came back and are still regular). There was a lull comparative, then it came back again, and this time I think there is lymph involvement, as I have thickening under the right armpit, sensitivity on the inside of the right arm with a feeling of a "block" there, and a sense of fullness under the right jaw. Sometimes the nodes on the back of the neck feel the same way, as do the ones under the bra line.
Just to make things more interesting, I suspect I have a groin hernia.

Your symptoms remind me of this: http://www.westonaprice.org/moderndi...romyalgia.html

My mother suffers from similar issues.

.

I started taking enzymes yesterday and even ate a piece of pizza and no stomach pain. I am hoping this is the ticket.

Congratulations p1gg1e! I can guarantee you that your pregnancy will go better than it would have had you not identified the problem.

Congratulations! It will only be good for you and your baby to do the diet you describe. Make sure you are covering all your bases nutrition wise. Do you have the Brewer Diet Book? That is a good one to look at and modify as needed to make sure you are getting enough of all the important things.
