    "Rice itself is gluten free (it does contain rice gluten, but it is NOT the gluten that triggers the autoimmune response of a celiac, btw.) The problem with white rice is that it is enriched, which means that the rice is sprayed with a vitamin enriched coating. Most of the big (e.g. Uncle Ben's, Mahatma) manufacturers use a corn based starch to get the coating to stick to the rice but that is no...

    Posts and threads that I loved. Posts by Quilp. Extremely sad, so be prepared to cry. Excellent writing. He captures what we go through.

    I'm starting 18 mg iron per day. Surely it will improve my energy if I am low in iron? It's unbelievable to me that my old blood tests showed normal iron levels. 2 months ago I reduced the amount of red meat I eat, and I reduced it 4 months before that. So I finally looked into iron RDA and food sources. I am shocked because I eat almost none of the foods I saw listed. Just chocolate, broccoli,...

    I think it's from sugar or dairy, even though they are organic. I also blame dairy for a general dry stuffiness in my sinuses and nose. I really need the protein, fat, and calories so I am disappointed. I will do some more diet changes in a month.

    Based on my limited understanding of my 23andme results, I have a heterozygous mutation for rs1801133. "Also known as C677T, Ala222Val, and A222V, it encodes a variant in the MTHFR gene, which encodes an enzyme involved in folate metabolism." I don't understand this, so I hope it means that Freddd's protocol (which I have started) will help. I also have a rs1065852 mutation meaning decreased...

    I have some I can't use and would like to trade. Open a conversation (private message) with me for a list of what I have.

    I was taking the survey, which is a good idea, and I look forward to the results. I am also saddened by it. I have been suffering well over 20 years now. Many PWCs have been for 10 to 20+ years. I am too tired to write more.

    I plan to start some of the recommended herbs in the thread at Therron said "I was forever having trouble starting the methylation protocol until I cleared up my gut." I have some reasons to believe my gut is above-average, particularly that I lack most symptoms. Based on my diet and occasional use of...

    I am on my 3rd day of natural thyroid pills, and it's made a clear positive difference from the first day. I tried natural thyroid once before, but I was a lot less clear about the results because I was trying many other supplements in that month. I recently read that you need to raise your dose multiple times until you reach a certain level. When I previously tried thyroid, this is clearly...

    If I take them, I need to be guarded. The danger is I use more energy, and the next day is worse for me. It doesn't feel as hard to do some activities, and I do more than I should. I hate when I have too much caffeine. I had caffeinated hot tea and it was far too much. I am trying to learn what levels I can handle. I may have to limit how much chocolate I have at once :(

    I am getting ready to start this in about 1 week. I take no medications. I take OTC allergy pills. I plan to start natural thyroid soon. For the past weeks, I have only used a liquid multivitamin and rarely vitamins/supplements for migraine. The liquid multivitamin makes me tired. This could be due to having folic acid. I will stop using it soon. I am worried about the protocol...
