Greetings Friends, Colleagues and Beloveds!
Letting go of 2015 was easy with help from the work of some amazing women, my body healed many problems that had been a nuisance between 6 and 25 years. I learned of N.A.E.T. which stands for Naumbudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques. Invented by a woman chiropractor, she developed a system that combines acupuncture with 25 hours of avoidance that eliminates allergies. I am no longer allergic to monosodium glutamate, so no more migraines. Moving on, I found the FODMAP diet out of Australia, which stands for:
"Fermentable The process through which gut bacteria degrade undigested carbohydrate to produce gases (hydrogen, methane and carbon dioxide)
Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) found in; wheat, rye, onions and garlic
Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) found in ; legumes/pulses
Disaccharides Lactose found in; milk, soft cheese, yoghurts
Mono-saccharide Fructose (in excess of glucose) found in honey, apples, high fructose corn syrups
Polls Sugar polls (eg. sorbitol, mannitol) found in some fruit and vegetables and used as artificial sweeteners."
This definition is from the website, The Monash University Low FODMAP diet. One day avoiding honey, soy, avocado, mushrooms and onions and I felt amazing! They have an app for $7.99 that you can purchase for your phone, it lists over 250,000 foods tested for FODMAP levels.
I am feeling hopeful and healthy on so many levels. Knowing which foods to avoid while I rebuild by gut bacteria, will allow me to heal. Maybe this will help one of you!
