I use Concentrace Trace Minerals in my filtered water to replace what is removed by my filtration system.

Nutrition Talk / Reverse Osmosis in Drinking Water
« Last post by bonnievictor on November 13, 2017, 11:33:41 AM »
I recently discovered that I could refill 5 gallon water bottle at the corner store using a machine provided by a company called Glacier Water. The process they use is reverse osmosis. It is a process using tap water , passing it through a series of filters to purify it of chlorine, particles and other harmful elements found in tap. However, as it ends up, it also removes vital minerals and electrolytes needed in ones diet. This is something to think about for me because of my activity level and sweating.  Any thoughts on any other way to achieve an economical way to resolve this challenge?

Kathy Abascal has written a book called To Quiet Inflammation . and it describes elimination diets in great detail. She also has an on-line class on this topic in which you could actually try an elimination diet.  I took her class in person the first time since I live in Seattle where she is based but the second time I took it on line and thought it was fine to do it that way.

This is something my husband and I toyed with at the beginning of 2017.  At that time I had, over the last year or so, had a significant decrease in my energy level, chronic fatigue, felt somewhat sick on a regular basis (congestion and upset stomach) and was just not feeling like myself anymore.  I knew I was at the beginning stages of menopause, but at the same time I was not ok with how I was feeling.  I went to my PCP and they had no answer for me other than pharmaceuticals and so a friend suggested seeing a Naturopath....BEST decision of my life!  At that first visit she suggested an elimination diet (specifically with dairy).  I decided to go off of all dairy, wheat and sugar for 30 days and my husband did it with me for support.  Huge eye-opener!  I've dealt with some type of nasal allergies since my early twenties and giving up dairy, these all but went away.  I do now eat wheat and use honey and maple syrup and none of those seem to bother me but the dairy I've kept out of my diet.  As a matter of fact, if I do "cheat" and have a little dairy, I feel the effects of it for days after.  I've also noticed significant stomach upset, gas and bloating during those days as well. 

Interestingly enough, my daughter has started having trouble digesting dairy products as well, has felt much better eliminating those from her diet and is now experimenting with eliminating gluten also.  Curious to know if this is a hereditary trait or purely coincidental. 

I've read so much about the Whole 30 approach to elimination, and have considered trying it myself.  Would like to know how anyone currently in the Nutrition field feels about this approach.

Nutrition Talk / Starting from Scratch
« Last post by marytabler on November 11, 2017, 12:45:20 PM »
I have always thought that I lead a pretty healthy lifestyle.  I typically eat well, fruits, veggies, proteins, and healthy carbs.  I try and get in exercise a few times a week between work, kids and other commitments.  But since starting school and doing an abundance of reading, I have realized there is so much more I need to be doing to monitor what is actually going into my body.

I feel like I need to start over.  Like my kitchen needs an overhaul.  My questions are, how do I start over?  What is ok to keep that is in my pantry (brown rice, quinoa, canned beans/tomatoes, ect.)?  What are some tips for keeping produce fresher longer?  And is Meal prepping the best way to get the most bang for my buck with buying fresh ingredients? 

Any and all suggestions are welcomed. Please.

Unfortunately I do not have any experience with elimination diets, sorry I cannot help you there.  But I am really interested in learning more after reading your post.  Do you know where I can get some more information on how to try this myself?

Nutrition Talk / Elimination Diets
« Last post by ninaauerbach on November 10, 2017, 06:43:26 PM »
I am wondering what experiences people have had with elimination diets.  About 3 years ago I took a class from a local  woman named Kathy Abascal who is an expert in anti-inflammatory diets.  Everyone who takes the class eliminates dairy, gluten, peanuts, corn, and sugar for 3 weeks and then brings them back one at a time to test for sensitivity.  What was so surprising to me is that I discovered that I had sensitivities to gluten and dairy.  I have not particularly had some of the more common reactions to these foods such as stomach upset.  I took the class mainly out of curiosity and so that I could provide good support to my health coaching clients.  But within 30 minutes of adding milk back to my coffee, I was completely congested.  Gluten took a little longer.  I ate wheat products throughout the day and by  the end of the day had intense stomach cramps.  So since that time I have been avoiding both of these.  Subsequently, I learned that inflammation from eating foods that you are sensitive to can cause leaky gut syndrome leading to various immune disorders.  I never put together the fact that I have an inflammatory thyroid condition with my gluten sensitivity until one day my endocrinologist, when I asked her about this, shared that she often tells her patients to avoid gluten!  I know that there are other elimination diets that eliminate even more foods such as eggs and soy.  Some day I may do a more extensive elimination diet.  Knowledge is power!  I do feel that elimination diets are a great way to learn more about how our bodies react to food.

Nutrition Talk / Re: Products for hair growth
« Last post by kristennash on November 10, 2017, 09:23:21 AM »
I have taken Biotin and definitely see a difference! Even in my baby (from nursing!) Her hair is growing quickly!
I do take around 10,000 mcg a day! It is a higher dose!
I've never looked into anything else, this would be interesting to look up though!

Nutrition Talk / Energy Help for Nursing Mom
« Last post by kristennash on November 10, 2017, 09:21:15 AM »
Hey Everyone,

I am a new mom of a 5 month old, working full time and I'm enrolled in the NC program!
I'm looking for a little bit of energy in the afternoons. I only have a cup of coffee in the morning.
I have people trying to sell me Beach Body supplements or Plexus drinks but those are extremely expensive and I'm not sure how natural they are.
I'm currently nursing so I more than ever would like something natural.
I already take a great B-complex vitamin, fish oil, multi, vitamin D, calcium/magnesium, and probiotic!

Does anyone have any suggestions?

This is a very interesting article about your mircobiome and how it can affect your cardiovascular health.

(I do disagree with the list of "avoid" foods in the video, especially with regard to egg yolks).
