It's All About Diet! (An Introduction)

I'm not talking about fad dieting. It's not about FAT dieting either. I'm talking about diets which we have to adhere to in order to live a 'normal life'. A 'diet' which enables us to function, live and yet thrive and be healthy.

But there are so many types of diets out there! Which ones to follow?

The best is to get a dietician to work with us.

Unfortunately, I do not have one. Why? Simply because I could not find one who could understand what my immune system has transformed into.

I had some basic advice from Dr. Yadav. But after that I was on my own.

What to do?

Read up and research. And it's been 8 years of researching.

Thus I will blog about some of the diets that appealed to me and have helped me in becoming stronger.

Disclaimer: If you wish to experiment, please get the advice of your doctor. What works for me may be fatal for you. So be wise in experimenting. be continued

Did You Know....

... That a man by the name of Edward Stone discovered salicylate?

He chewed on a piece of willow bark and realised that it had analgesic effects. The bark's active ingredient was isolated in 1827. It was named salicin which comes from the Greek word 'salix' which means willow.

8 Years


In a blink of an eye, 8 years have passed by.

Someone asked me this question recently, "How come you're not well after 8 years? Shouldn't you be well by now? I mean, you have been on your salicylate-free-diet for 8 years now!"

If I could answer that question, I would be the world's leading geneticist!

First of all, I am not only salicylate sensitive. I am also chemically sensitive. And I'm sure most of us know how many gazillion types of chemicals there are in this world. I mean some have names longer than a railway track.

Don't believe me?

Read below.

The chemical name for Titin has 189,819 letters! This is only PART of its name;

Even with our smartest brains around on this earth, we humans are still unable to test for every sickness that exists today. Thus, the term idiopathic!

"Doctor, I have this pain in my body which does not go away!"
And after months of tests which do not yield any results that pinpoint the source of the pain, the doctor will say "It's idiopathic!"

"Doctor, I can't seem to overcome this severe weakness in my immune system."
Test and test and test for months.
Doctor comes to the conclusion; "It's idiopathic!"

And then "Idiopathic" will slowly evolve to "You're stressed!"

Me: Of course I am stressed! YOU stress me out doctor! You don't know nothing and yet you prescribe me medicines like candies on Halloween night! Hell, you even sound like Nightmare on Elm Street.

Doctor: "Eat this medicine and you'll be well! See me in two weeks."

And the bi-weekly appointments will repeat themself with even more candies being given out as though they were free.

So how come I am not HEALED after 8 years?

These are what I can come up with:

1. I don't know. I am not a doctor. My doctor doesn't even know what's wrong with me.

2. I don't freaking know. All I know is that SHIT HAPPENS.

3. I really don't know and I really don't care.

4. I can only come up with one word: IDIOPATHIC.

Happy 8th Idiopathic year to ME!
