9 November 2010

Not much to report .. have been feeling quite good last couple of days .. except for when I didn't take PPI for dyspepsia last night and couldn't sleep.  .. had to pop another pill.  PPI's are not good for long term use.  They play havoc with absorption of essential minerals increasing the risk of bone breaks. ( http://www.jonbarron.org/blog/2010/06/proton-pump-inhibitors-and-fractures.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+jonbarron%2FDGMO+%28The+Baseline+of+Health+Blog%29 ).
If I am able to tolerate a wider range of foods, I am hoping gut health will improve, and therefore my reliance on PPIs.  Another month and three weeks or so and I might be able to try reintroducing some foods and gut healing products I hope.  This might even improve my rosacea.  http://rosacea-support.org/sibo-eradication-clears-rosacea-are-you-serious.html

The immune system and digestive system are bedfellows.  A healthy digestive system therefore must improve immunity.  

My appointment with an immunologist did not provide any answers to my food intolerance problems and lupus like symptoms.  Blood results need to progress to the next level before autoimmune system labels are applied .. hopefully there will be no progression (40:1 4 years ago, 160:1 this year, 320:1 for the labelling to begin). 

When I told the specialist I had begun hookworm therapy she asked if it was working .. so no shock horror.
