I stopped the antacids. I'm using licorice solid extract, Gastro D and Deflect and I'm also taking quercitin with bromalain from Now.  I can't take NAP's bromalain because the dosage is too high.
500 mg gives me a migraine. It has to be less than 500 mg.  It's much better. I also stopped eating/drinking hot foods. (Trying to balance my Pitta dosha)  

Congrats... that's great news!  You know I've been a big anti-antibiotic warrior for a while.  My gut began a quick healing process upon elimination of the antacids.  
I also take a Quercetin (500mg) & Bromelain (375mg) supplement as well as Garlic + Digestive Enzymes and have no need for the damaging little purple pill.  I plan on purchasing the NAP Quercetin/Bromelain as soon as I run out of what I have.

Do any of you lovely Warriors have a problem with Quorn?   I keep trying to eat it and I keep having problems. I bought the naked cutlets and almost choked on them, then every time I eat it, I get bloated and my weight goes up instantly  Last night I had the meatballs...I'm so bloated.. ahhhhh  

Quorn was one of my favorite protein sources for a number of years.  I quit eating it because of the wheat gluten intolerance issue.  

Looking at the ingredients you'll notice a number of red flags:

Mycoprotein (51%), rehydrated egg white, onions, textured wheat protein (wheat protein, wheat starch), whey protein concentrate, canola oil. Contains 2% or less of dextrose, autolyzed yeast extract, salt, potato maltodextrin, tapioca starch, pectin, natural flavors from non-meat sources, citric acid, garlic powder, gum arabic, calcium lactate, onion powder, black & white pepper

Made from natural ingredients.

Allergic Consumers:
This product contains: egg, milk and wheat ingredients. We do not use any ingredients derived from genetically modifies sources.

The bloating is likely coming from the wheat protein/ wheat starch, potato maltodextrin and tapioca starch sources.

Thanks !   I'm taking liquid cal/mag so that helps also. I think I need more calcium.

Yeah, I think I'm giving up the quorn. It's listed as a beneficial on my SWAMI but I'm reacting to something in it.. As Dr. D said, I'm a Warrior with sensitivities.. I have no reaction to TVP. I know some people don't like it .. because it's processed, but I don't eat it as often as tofu and tempeh..

Interesting.  My latest lab reports from late April returned a really high calcium level which I was told was a direct response from the over usage of antacids.  I'm depending on calcium rich foods exclusively now as my calcium source and anxious to have another full blood panel done in the near future.

Sometimes bees crawl up inside and hide there.  

Depends on how big the eye opens...  If it is closed or really small, definitely no bees.  I mostly have to worry about fruit flies, but if I eat one, I treat it as a Neutral...  I squished some inside a fig when I tried to open it - wasn't appetizing...  Decided I'd just tap on the fig to get the flies out, then eat the fig...  

I like the cottage cheese idea...  Thanks!

lol lol...treat it as a neutral.  Tap on the fig? Not afraid to eat fly poop?  I figured the ones that taste like   when I bite into them are the ones that have some "other" protein in them.

Fruit flies as neutral.  

Any quorn product I ever saw was chock-full of avoids, so I never got any to try.  I don't know where Dr. D found some plain to test.  Kind of like almond cheese and soy cheese.  Any I've ever seen had avoids in them!

TVP makes me feel bloated and gross.  But I once made some really interesting Grape Nut substitute with it.  Tasty, but....not worth the bloated grossness.

There is so much sugar and little crunchy seeds in these fresh figs, that you couldn't tell if there was a whole fly, much less a little fecal matter...

Hello, Warriors !
Have been reading some of your posts and want to know how you muscle test on yourself.
My chiro has been testing me for years, but I have not been able to test myself successfully. What is the secret?
Has anyone found an effective treatament for hemorrhoids?  I have a stubborn case that has lasted for 2 weeks and I don't have any of the "common risk factors".  I comply to the Warrior diet pretty closely and can't get  what I am eating that has aggravated this so badly.
Would love to know if other Warriors have this problem and better yet, have a solution.


I want to be an outrageous old woman who never gets called an old lady.  I want to get leaner & meaner, sharp edged & earth colored, till I fade away from pure joy.

try polyflora, and all digestive marvels Dr D has designed according to your physiology

if you need a more personalized approach, try a swami, that will be the ultimate!

You're quite welcome W430!    Warriors are the minority in the genotypes. Not a whole lot of us.

Hi BB welcome!   I do it with the middle finger and thumb of the right hand and try to close  together the index and thumb of my left hand. If they close easily..it's bad. If I get good resistance..the thing is good.  But you're right. If someone else does it..there's less being partial.. like if you really didn't want to hear a "no" answer ..you could sway the results subconsciously but the ND would be impartial.

Would love to know if other Warriors have this problem and better yet, have a solution.

First, using MRT on self is an art which many practitioners believe can't be done reliably accurately.  I probably only have an 70 - 80% accuracy...  I confirm almost every test with a different question to increase the chances of reliability, especially if I get a weak response rather than a very strong response.
Some keys to muscle testing myself:
   Totally detach your mental from physical - you can't want a specific result to any question and expect it to be accurate.  This is the hardest thing because our brain knows what it thinks and is used to "ruling" the body.  This can be good and bad.  The bad shows up when you try to have the body tell the brain what it needs when the brain thinks otherwise.
   Ask only Yes / No questions.  Become really good at "20 questions" because sometimes the real beneficial answer doesn't come right away.
   Your spine needs to close to properly aligned.  A large misalignment or fixation will make it impossible to get an accurate result.
   Practice, practice, practice, then repeat this step...  One way I practiced to confirm accuracy was to test at the same time as the practitioner...  If they get a specific result, confirm it.  Don't do this as a challenge to their test, but just to attempt confirmation.  Also, challenge the test with a different wording to get a different or the same response.
   Remember that many practitioners do not think it is possible to accurately self-test, so this tells me that there are many who can't do this accurately and you may be one of those people...  My holistic practitioner didn't believe self-testing was possible until I showed her that I could match her results...  She still has difficulty testing herself accurately, while my NAET practitioner could test herself, as well as patients across the room or around the world over the phone.  It may have to do with how sensitive you are to your or others' energy.

About your hemorrhoids - I had one that came and went for years before BTD and several years after.  Sometimes it would bleed, others it just hurt.  After BTD, it started coming back smaller and smaller until it was gone...  I'm not sure what made it come or go, but I'm happy it seems to be gone...

I have the same thing. I thought mine was from having 2 children?    Anyway I get the same symptoms when I go off my diet.. But now since I've been compliant, it's much better. I didn't think hemorrhoids were the result of eating wrong. I just thought  you get them from straining?

Hemorrhoids are varicose veins just in a ... specific area.  From what I understand.  Somebody told me about white oak bark when I was expecting #3 and had varicose veins on my legs real bad.  Just a quick google search turned this up:  http://www.hemroidharry.com/white-oak-bark.html

Within days of starting white oak bark capsules, my veins vanished.  I kept taking it till the baby was born.

Quoted from ABJoe

Yes, I pick them from the tree (about 20 ft. tall, due to topping)...  My figs are about 2-3" diameter and full of sugar...  I made my own fig newtons from fresh figs, but the fig flavor is very subtle in these - it is mostly just sweet.  I now either eat them fresh or can them for winter eating.  

I spread a fresh fig on a rice cake or split the fig open and fill the center of both halves with peanut butter...  So many ways to be creative...

Between this thread and a facebook friend's fig recipe request, I just had to go out and buy some figs today.  

As a kid we had a fig tree amongst many other fruit and citrus bearing trees.  My mom would rake up dead pine needles and put them under the fig tree, for some reason.  Mulch, perhaps?  Anyway, one 4th of July I was playing with sparklers and as the thing was near the end of its life, I hurled it high into the air.  It landed in the dead pine cones and caught the beloved fig tree on fire.  Ooooops

Anyway, reading your thread and the suggested recipes my friend received I was desperately longing for figs.  The are just as good as I recall from my childhood.  I've just eaten a couple of them raw thus far but will try the peanut butter mix tomorrow.  Sounds delightful.

Hi W430,
My pleasure to help out..fellow Warriors..   What you're doing sounds ok..Tai chi in and of itself is cardio..do you feel that you really need the walking? I see the bowflex is to prevent osteoporosis.. do you feel stressed out from it?  Dr. D said it's ok to do resistance training but make sure you add in the stress reducer exercise.

I myself am trying to find a balance on that. If you like to come into the "A FS Fitness Log" thread..(FS means fresh start)  in the Fit Right 4 Your Type forum, you can log your workouts with the rest of us and chat about what feels good. It's all A's (mostly) so we all can compare notes.  I just started riding a bike again and I also started Oxycise and I like the body blade. (really good for rotator cuff rehab and really tightens the core)

Oh boy!  Mulch definitely helps retain the moisture, but can have other effects as well.  Hope the tree recovered.

Enjoy your figs!

Lola linked in a great overview.  I do some walking, some stretching, some meditation.  Probably not as much as recommended due to ongoing detox.  If I do too much, I get overly toxic and feel really bad for several days.  As an AB, I have less problem with Cortisol...

I saw the lemon juice thread. Do any other Warriors have problems drinking lemon juice in water?  I can't tolerate it.  I have a citrus allergy. I was even drinking copious amounts of  iced green tea with lemon and my stomach started burning after a week of daily drinking. I had to stop drinking tea with lemon.  I like raspberry or peach better anyway.
