Did you know that eating an anti-inflammatory diet can decrease some of your pain. Drop the sugar food for a starters, they are all acidic and not good for your body. You want to be alkaline. Other things you can change in your diet that will help me is no processed foods, no white, no dairy, no wheat, no cow. Eat lots of fruit and veggetables, fish, chicken and turkey. I have been eating a lot of fruit smoothies and green smoothies. Also drink more than 8 glasses of water per day. \
Anyways, just a bit of info I have recently learned.
Thanks for listening.
I'll try anything to get rid of this horrible daily headache.
Have a nice day all and low pain too!!
Have a great Hallowe'en. My kids are too big and I will pass on handing out the candy.

You are so correct!  pH Balance helps alot of situations!  Unfortunately, when hardware is placed in the body its definitely a block even for this lifestyle.  I am with you though and enjoy lots of greens and green drinks!

Thanks for sharing.

 Dear Suzanne,
     Good morning !! *huggs* How are you doing this morning? Has your pain decreased atall this morning? I sure hope so, thou I worry it hasnt *huggs*
   I am on one of those "weird" diets too!  Some of the things on your "no" list I do eat, and have to eat every day. When it comes to natural anti inflammatories remember the darker, the better (except eggplant I think). Black beans, strawberries, red apples etc. Here is some cool info
     My doctors are picky about what I eat, but my diet is mostly due to my various medical problems and took about a year to get comfortable with. Basically I eat 5x per day, very high protein... im cheating and having some coffee right now thou.. so don't tell anyone hehe :-)



Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

Yes, you're so right. I only wish I could stick to that! I have gotten back to a somewhat healthier diet since my Barrett's esophagus was diagnosed, but I've got to watch all acidic foods - even the good stuff I liove like citrus fruits.

BTW Char, I found frozen blueberries at WalMart that aren't too expensive, and they're fairly good size berries! Our season here is very short, too, and now they're horrendously expensive - if you can find them. But I've started putting them on whatever cereal I'm eating in the morning. Should go great with oatmeal!

Thanks for the reminder that there are other things we can do to help moderate our pain besides medications.
