Hello Everyone!

I am getting concerned about my knees. They have become worse on the diet! I read somewhere that a high protein diet and one high in vegetable oils can make arthritis worse. Of course, I have been eating heaps of nuts and good oils lately - many more than I did when I was not on the diet. I am concerned I am doing more harm than good to myself.

How is everyone else's aches and pains going?

Welcome to my world.... I have achy knees and other body parts that ache too.

It would helpful if you knew your secretor status.  If you're a non-secretor, your diet might contain foods you should be avoiding.  I would stay within the portions recommended
in the book for nuts and oils.  Maybe take fish oil to insure you get plenty of omega 3 if
you're not eating lots of fish.

You might want to read Dr. D's book on Arthritis and further refine your foods.

It often takes time to detox from foods you once ate often.  There is much lectin damage
stored in the body from foods you've once ingested.... (if you've carefully read ER4YT you will understand lectins).

I would try Deflect for type A from NAP...It helps to pry off old lectin damage.  I take it
daily between meals..It can be used to "deflect" avoids if you eat them as well.

In addition, NAP makes two  supplements good for joints..Connectivar and Phloxin.  I
take both of them.

Drink lots of pure water so your body can flush out toxic waste.

Yes I was wondering two things you mentioned Chloe....1) I wonder if I am going nuts on the nuts!? 2) Wondering if it is a detox as I have not had any gluten or wheat for a week now which is LONG for me. Before the BTD, I'd eat it three times a day easily. And probably as snacks as well.

I need to take a look at the NAP store. I wonder if they can ship to Hong Kong.

I am going to cut back on the nuts and the olive oil. I love my fish and eat alot of that. Maybe the problem is too of certain foods right now?

There seem to be a couple of discussions going at the same time re. joint pain. I'll respond over here since Chloe has already mentioned "water". I wake up with stiff joints in my hands (sometimes, not always). It disappears quickly, though, after getting up and moving around. I get this now on the GTD and had it in the past. Haven't decided yet if it is more pronounced on the GTD or not, as others are saying it is for them, but I don't think so. I've always figured it was related to my water intake, which is something that I struggle with every day. Water does not go down smoothly with me, I literally have to choke it down. Mostly it goes down as tea. But lately I've not been having my tea regularly either and I've been noticing the stiffness in my hands more often. So, maybe it's a good idea to increase water intake first to see if that makes a difference before reducing the amount of nuts/oils in your diet.

I had another thought.  Almonds might be your best nut. It's alkalizing.  Other nuts are
more acidic.  Try eating just almonds for a few days.  See if that helps.

And I'm gluten intolerant.  Took me a really long while to work on those aches and pains
once I gave up all gluten foods. It's been two years and I still think my gut is healing.

If you're checking out the NAP store, see if you think you would benefit from the
type A probiotic.  Everyone needs good bacteria to restore their gut..

Sometimes a lot of bad bacteria is the reason for so many aches and pains.

Chloe's advice is good, marmalade.  If you don't know your secretor status, you really don't know if you are following the diet that will help you heal.  A lot can change with a different secretor status.

And watch the portion/frequency suggestions given by Dr. D.  Do you have LR4YT?  

The Arthritis book is a great one.

Also look into your weight.  Even 10 extra pounds will stress your joints.  

Gluten?

Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
