Re: please help anyone
HI Dr. Jeff,
I have never tried avocodo and I have never tried NAC. I have really advocated for my father's Fibrosis and he is now on a prescription for NAC which has slowed down the mucus.
I do okay with brown rice. The foods I know instantly cause cramps and diarrhea are: chicken, beef, pork, wheat, sugar, fruits especially citrus, not to bad with apple. slcohol is a bad one, brocolli, tomato, banana, potatos, dairy, are all foods that cause diarrhea. I do okay with fish, brown rice including rice cereals, almond butter, squash, spinach if cooked, nothing raw. Any fragrances in creams, perfumes etc will cause instant headaches. In regards to my emotional history: I have always considered myself well balanced with a positive outlook on life. I managed residential and day programs for special need adults. The past three years have definately caused some depression due to the pain and inability to recover. SSRI's cause a worstening of symptoms and suicidal thoughts. I seem to fall into the small percentile of people who have side effects to many medications since the sulfa. Mental Illness has been ruled out and most of the specialists feel there is an autoimmune problem. I so can empathize with all of you who have seen several doctors who have informed you that it may be psychosomatic as there is no diagnosis. It only adds fuel to the fire, and makes you feel like a salesperson at times. Keep your chin up and always advocate for yourself as difficult as it is you know your body better than anyone else.
