Nutrition Talk / Alinia - Antiparasitic
« Last post by Drew F. on September 05, 2017, 09:55:26 PM »
I have a client whose doctor has recommended an anti-parasitic called Alinia (Nitazoxanide) to eradicate blastocystis hominis. Has anyone heard of this medication before? I actually haven't been able to find too much negative information on it and was wondering if anyone had any experience with it - positive or negative? Thanks!
Nutrition Talk / Glucose tolerance curve and Insulin curve
« Last post by Dana Ced on September 05, 2017, 05:10:46 AM »

Could someone, please, help me understand these results- fasting glucose tolerance curve and insulin curve (attached).
Is the 30 min 179 mg/dL and 180 min 53 mg/dL alarming?
This client is a 30 years old female with hormone imbalances testing for PCOS. The diagnosis will be done by her GYN, but I would like to make sense of it myself. It's actually the first time I come across these 3-hour curve lab tests, usually I only see a single fasting glucose number.

Thank you.

The accuracy and precision of both blood and scratch tests varies considerably depending upon the lab and sometimes the technician running the test. Some labs have 10% false negatives snd false positives. Additionally some reactions do not involve antibodies (IgE, A, G, or M). I would have the client avoid all foods that cause reactions the scratch tests and symptoms,  including those that are reactive alone or in combination. That will definitely help reduce inflammation and leaky gut to allow reintroduction in 3-6 months when the gut has calmed down. Vitamin A adequacy can help too. She can do a provocative reintroduction after a short period of clearing to ID what she will need to avoid for longer. You may have to check in with her daily to support that elimination/provocation phase. Good luck.

Thank you so much for your encouragement! It really made me want to get back at it with my son. Your suggestions for having my son get involved with the food itself was smart. And I hadn't even thought of it. I was just trucking along because I had to make sure he was eating right, but getting him involved really makes him active in his own  health. In fact, because of the suggestion I bought both he ad my daughter kid-friendly knives to help me prep food.

I feel like if I had you for support  in the beginning I would've made it longer than 3 months on this diet haha

Thanks again for your kind and encouraging words.

Nutrition Talk / Re: recurrent UTI's and vaginal dryness
« Last post by EveyK on August 31, 2017, 02:16:53 PM »
I am also a fan of D-Mannose.  I got 2 UTI's last year (from having sex) and took antibiotics both times.  I healed my with massive amounts of probiotics and a healthy diet.  I've learned to take D-Mannose as a preventative measure.  Whenever I think I might be at risk of getting one, I take two pill of the NOW brand of D-Mannose, and so far so good.  It's my understanding that it lowers the pH of the urine, which makes the urinary tract less likely to get inhabited by bacteria.  I also have a friend who was able to stave off her UTI with taking D-Mannose, alone.  She did not have to resort to antibiotics.  But it it moves quickly and into the kidneys, like it did once with me, the antibiotics are a life saver.

For vaginal dryness, I have heard of a cream that you can put in at night with a dispenser, it's from a compound pharmacy called O'Brien Pharmacy in Mission, KS.  The main pharmacist is a woman who has come up with some wonderful remedies for this sort of thing.  She is very easy to talk to.  You can just call and ask them about it.  I'm not sure if it's something that requires a prescription, but I do know that it is all healthy ingredients with natural nutrients for the tissue.
I travel quite a bit. Being vegetarian , gluten free and lactose free is very difficult to get any food in European countries. The day  I land any place I have a list of food to buy like apples, carrots, veggies that can stay with out refrigeration. Also I take some nuts, dried fruits, seeds and  dehydrated meals that I make at home.
 Every day breakfast I make sure I eat eggs with some veggies.  Take nuts and dried or fresh fruits and veggies as snack and have early dinner. For dinner it all depends what I get out side, otherwise , I heat water in coffee pot and add to dehydrated meal I took with me.. I went to hiking trips. I carried protein powder ready to mix  to hot or cold water.
These meals worked very fine with me. I had my meals with my tastes and local foods to trying something new at dinner. Most of the breakfast times I found local fruits. I never felt I missed any thing. Hope this helps you to decide how to take care of your health while traveling.Ŗ
That is a tough one for anyone living a healthy lifestyle in our over-processed society. We all know if we are consistent we will have a great outcome, but we find we have to be so regimented in order to be successful. I think the easiest way to answer your question is but planning, planning, planning. I recently went out of the country to Mexico for an all inclusive resort. Which does not accommodate a healthy eater. So what I did was I brought lots of seeds, nuts, and easy to pack foods. That way if I was hitting my edge and I needed something I would have that to tie me over until I could make a better decision. You could also try explaining to the people you are traveling with, staying with that you are not eating... insert your no go list. I think people naturally want to accommodate their guest, and don't feel bad for making good healthy lifestyle decisions. You can also stop by a store on your way in and pick up a load of veggies and incorporate them into the meal being prepped for you. You can also treat them to a meal so they can see how tasty it is to eat healthy and nutritious foods.
As far as traveling and being at restaurants, I would suggest looking up the menu before you arrive to ensure there is something on the menu you can eat. Remember don't go in unprepared. Have a snack and keep hydrated so you don't get tempted with refined carb and sugary options. Most restaurant now days will gladly accommodate a special diet.
There will still be the people that insist you try their dessert or casserole and to them I suggest letting them know you are allergic or your body cant handle that type of food. That usually works better than saying you are on a diet.
Good luck and happy traveling!

Happy Tuesday!

I wanted to share with everyone that Sprouts has a really good selection on local and organic foods.

I usually check their weekly ads on Monday nights and write down everything that I need or that's on sale.

I also heard that Amazon just bought WholeFoods, and Amazon is going to cut down prices !
