There have been some people who have dropped by this blog and stated that I've seem to have gone down the path of the orthorexia nervosa. Believe me when I say that I am not afraid of eating. Even my doctors are afraid for me when I say that I experiment eating new foods! They caution me to go slow and not to overdo it.
So this journey in healing the gut has brought on a very positive turn.
I am able to tolerate more foods on the high-end of salicylates.
I can now eat toasted sesame seed oil, organic potato chips (YES, I almost fainted from ecstasy after consuming that! I think I even heard the heavens open up with HALLELUJAHs beaming down!!), broccoli, strawberry, and goji berry. So my list of foods that I can now eat is getting longer and that is VERY good news to me.
So to those who say that I am heading to a path of self-destruction by eliminating sugar and gluten, put yourself in my shoes. Would you rather live in excruciating pain everyday and be on an exceedingly limited diet or eliminate sugar and gluten and be pain-free and start to be able to eat a wider list of foods?
I can't wait to be able to eat ginger, curry, spices, watermelon, oranges, kiwi, and loads and loads of other healthy food out there.
