  • Okay, all. ***MOD HAT HERE*** Please, everyone take a deep breath and step back. Aside from the fact that personal attacks are being made at this point, which is a violation of MFP's policies, in general you are all arguing the same basic points. Semantics, wordplay, and perspective, as well as interpretation as to other's…
  • Sent a friend invite!
  • @vonniew7 I'm not back to working out again yet, but many of us here check in when we can!
  • @Hecka_Rebecca This articulates one of my stumbling blocks so articulately!!
  • One thing I read though, too, is that if you have any sort of compromised gut health, you will have difficulty converting serotonin/dopamine out of your existing dietary intake of amino acids and neurotransmitters. So make sure you do your best (probiotics, prebiotics, digestive aids, etc.) to support your gut, too. Carbs…
  • I've had a whole slew of issues lately trying to get my digestive enzymes right. I had my gallbladder out in December of 2000, and then I found the NOW Brand Super Digestive Enzymes, which changed my life. I had some other complicating factors, and slid back into Carbville, and the enzymes became too strong, getting me…
  • Congrats!!
  • I just wanted to pop in to cheer everyone on. We can do this!! No matter how many times we slip or fall, as long as we get back up and fight the good fight, WE ARE THE ONES WINNING, not the "B." All the hugs!!!
  • Magnesium is considered to be the number one nutrient deficiency in the US, because it's been thoroughly depleted in our food sources. Potassium is naturally high in chicken and such, and it's dangerous to take too much. It's rarely tracked on labels, so we generally get more than we know. However, if your magnesium levels…
  • @bametels I know we've had this discussion before (shared misery about our parents), but I don't know my mom's numbers, nor do I think I'd want to, but I've literally watched her and my stepdad (both T2D) inject insulin, then proceed to binge on candy. I could not live nearby and watch this all of the time...it breaks my…
  • @2t9nty That's great. I tried to get in for a new sleep study before the end of the year (called several weeks ago), and they couldn't even get me in for the initial consult before the end of the year. I explained that since I've met my deductible, I can afford to do it before the end of the year, but I won't be able to…
  • @AJB1014 Congrats! Those are some amazing results! I will have to go back to your previous post and see what you were doing! Keep up the hard work!
  • Thanks. Now we've begun the next phase, the unpacking and praying you can find things phase!
  • Congrats on the baby - and using the hubby to deflect thing binge, @verathefitmom Waves to @Nevadaden @lamlam2013 @valleygirl74 @HealthyHappyMom37 Survived the move, attempting to finally set up my kitchen (Everything is night and day different from my old apartment, so my brain is overwhelmed!) so that I can stop eating…
  • Ha! I just reread and saw that it was the Ovasitol that was referenced as being expensive, not the Metformin! LOL Berberine is a possible alternative to Metformin, too...but getting the proper doses can end up expensive if you don't find a good source. @mzlovely22 I responded about the Pregnenlone in a different post, but…
  • I've heard of some of the lesser active members here using it, but basically, it's just a branded name of both types of inositol together. If you can get it at a discounted rate, or if it really helps you to have it paired exactly together, then I'd say go for it. Otherwise, I'm a fan for finding the best price and working…
  • @_aenyeweddien_ If you were drinking water and NOT supplementing sodium, that basically strip mines your entire body of sodium, then magnesium, and eventually potassium, which results in exactly the symptoms you described, along with a few other doses of misery, depending on how long it goes on... There are vegetarians and…
  • With Graves, a good resource is Dr. Izabella Wentz and her book/web series "The Root Cause." I'm not good with accountability of others (it is a binge trigger for me right now), but I'll be happy to cheer you all on!
  • The urine tests are an inexpensive screening tool, whereas the cultures take more time and funds to do. If someone has complaints that seem like a uti, and the urine test.comes back flagged, they can start the person on antibiotics right away, rather than a few days later after the cultures come back...which can be way…
  • There are a number of ways to approach this. Pretty much most plans that focus on whole foods, responsibly sourced, and well prepared and focused on nutrients helps. Even when I was fully on a keto plan, I could tolerate more in the way or organic and non-GMO grains/starches. We did a home delivery food service as a trial,…
  • Another thing I can tell you, @pamplemousse21 is that so many of my vitamins were massively depleted. My B12, D3, and others were at the lowest measurable levels. Having gotten these up has really helped how I feel on a day to day basis, even if it hasn't helped me get to the core of everything. And even though my TSH test…
  • I wonder what impact a viral inhibitor - like Elderberry extract - would have on the dementia, with or without the presence of HSV1...
  • Kudos all around, everyone! So happy to see such progress with all my friends!
  • I recently had two urineanalysis tests, both said I had a UTI until I got back the cultures, which were clear. So yes, agree with ALL of the above... I hope you're feeling much better by now!
  • Likely you're getting close to this again, @youngmomtaz Hopefully you found some things that helped last time, but if not, I found that any time I craved sweets, I ate salty and drank more water. Make sure to get plenty of B12, iron, vitamin C, and such to help provide your body with the building blocks to replace any…

  • Perspective is everything! Looking forward to the next update!!
  • Sending my best to everyone. In the middle of a super stressful move that is unwanted, and just doing my best to hold steady and make reasonable choices... I'm in full trigger zone here... (HUGS) to us all!
  • For me, it's anything where I feel out of control and unable to stop, should I choose to stop. Overeating is just overeating. Generally I can say ENOUGH! and walk away... For me, that compulsion to eat even when I know I shouldn't and don't want to...or to think of NOTHING ELSE except what I've made a choice to avoid - to…
  • As long as we get back up any time we get knocked down, we're not done for. I LOVE this quote above... 300 days of awesome... We should all remember and take heart from that. I gained a lot of my weight due to being on anti-psychotics for bipolar disorder that was later determined to be an incorrect diagnosis, but I still…
