Detox

I got the results back from the food intolerance test that involved Nurse Ratchett and the subsequent 60 mile trip into Orlando to find someone who could get 4 vials of blood out of me.  Without hitting me in the face first.

Holy moly.  I’m sensitive to stuff I never dreamed of.  So I’m avoiding everything that I’m even remotely sensitive to.  And now I’m experiencing the joys of de-tox.  Which is akin to throwing myself under a bus.  And then asking the driver to drive back and forth over me.

This should end soon, so I hear.  And then I have much to report.  I have a phone meeting with the author of “Conquering Arthritis” on Wednesday to go over the results of the blood tests.  Wherein I will be in sponge mode and hang on her every word.

Thank you to those of you that have been sending me wonderful recipes!!!  And I know so many of you are praying for me and please know that I realize through the power of prayer comes the most powerful healing!

I’ll be back.  When this bus stops mowing me down.  🙂

  • Dearest DeeDee,

    I can’t even imagine what you are going through, but truly admire your will to conquer, with God’s help. My children have had food allergies for years and thus avoid all sorts of things you are having to delete from your diet. We have found great help from the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network. There are great recipes and substitutions and support. http://www.foodallergy.org
    I hope it helps with managing your situation.

  • I’ve been following your “trials”. Ugh. Sorry. Be encouraged that getting rid of the sensitivities will make a huge difference! Finally after my son was unable to gain weight (we should all struggle with that right?) and being terribly sick all the time (like thick nasty nose junk), we found out he had several sensitivities including gluten and he eventually blood tested positive for celiac disease. He has been off all of those for almost 2 years! Gained 10 pounds and the only doctor visit he has had was when he ran into his sister’s dinner plate cutting open his nose! God is good and I am praying for strength for you.

    Blessings,
    Vicki

  • I honestly do not know if I have the strength to do this. So, am waiting to hear if it works and how well.

    Getting the Ph test, so baby steps.

  • Thanks for sharing your journey with us. I am learning so much through your posts.

    Hugs,
