Thank you lerie.
I do have a dr that I am working with on nutrition. She also always tells me how very important it is to eat the right carbs. For me, pasta and bread are huge no-no's. I can have wheat free, gluten free and yeast free pastas and bread, and I do eat those!! I need to increase my veggies a whole lot more anyway.
I think Dr Norm is just on here giving help and advice anyway. After all, I thought thats what this forum was for?? To share ideas and what has worked for some and what doesn't work for others?
I have chronic Lyme disease. I have litteraly been to at least 20 plus dr's. Until I found a Lyme dr here in town. My faith in medical drs?? Slim to absolute none. They do not aproach medicine from a nutritional standpoint. There solution most of the time is "take this pill and you will feel better". Hog wash. There are other more sensible solutions out there. Pills do help and are often times necessary. In my case, the PPI's are causing damage. They are not meant to be used long term-for years at a time! Even the producers of these meds will state that PPI therapy is still uncertain for long term use.
That said, I wont stay on them for the rest of my life-I refuse. I know others who have had their digestive system completely destroyed thanks to these guys. However I know others who can take them for years and have no problems. I clearly am not one of them.
If they are working for others for years and years, thats great. Its not a solution for me so the next logical step to me is my diet.
