Health Update

I have been taking Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) for a couple weeks. The LDN is showing to be of benefit, but is not a magic bullet. I was able to willingly cheat a lot over Christmas break without any serious draw backs. No diarrhea and my acne did not flare much, I think it’s the LDN.

I was super surprised and happy I was able to eat my mother’s apple pie, pizza, a few bites of a Cannoli, some sort of lemon sugar powdered pound cake-like cookie, and sugar powdered truffles. Typically, if I get diarrhea from eating poorly, it happens within 24hrs, but that didn’t happen this time.

While traveling and getting home Tues Dec. 27th I ate too many amazing Specific Carbohydrate Diet legal “Date Brownies”. I’ve had 2 days of diarrhea, Wed & Thurs (today). But I will stop eating those treats and get back to normal in a day or so.

What we eat is one of the most effective ways (aside from antibiotics) that we can change the diversity of microbes in our gut. Some foods don’t have live bacteria on it those also tend to be the ones that feed pathogenic bacteria. They can proliferate in our small bowel and cause all kinds of problems.

When one changes their diet to more natural food and not processed, the pathogenic bacteria can’t reproduce as much. Additionally, the probiotics from the food and commercial sources are free to have a greater impact on the health of the host.

Mount Everest is one of the world’s toughest mountains to climb, but people have climbed it. I’ve met and interviewed several people with severe crohn’s / colitis who have used diet and supplements and are pharma med free. It’s not the severity of the disease that matters, it’s the determination and effort of the person that matters.

The below video is a six minute TEDx East talk Ari Meisel gave in May, 2011. He talks about how Crohn’s disease nearly killed him and how when he tried different, effective, and alternative approaches he not only overcame Crohn’s, but no longer carries the diagnosis of having an “incurable” disease.

My Health Regimen

I just realized that I hadn’t updated you all on how my health is since my last post, which was on Oct. 12th, titled “Going Home!“.

Since then, I’ve “rebooted” my diet, starting from scratch and trying more supplements to heal my gut on a deeper, more foundational level. It only took about 2 days for me to have my next bowel movement after all the diarrhea on Monday night, but when it happened, it was solid and it’s been that way since.
