I had been back to following B Type diet and was studying the Genotype information and through book reading was Nomad, then got the software and it crunched the data and I'm Gatherer. I have to say I got a bit frustrated with all that and have not really had the time to commit to following the Gatherer yet, but have been doing B diet for about 4 years but had gone quite a bit off of it last year. SO - I'm pretty compliant now and ready to see if I can now switch everything up to see how the Gatherer diet works for me.

Well I can tell you what has worked for me
After a stressfull time- my stomach was really upset So much that I seemed to spend most of decemeber in cramps, diarrea etc. I was starting to get freaked out- was I getting a gluten intolerence and lactose intolerence or what was going on ????

I made lots of beef broth ( I cant stand lamb or turkey B )( real homemade stuff with most of fat in
I used that for lunch and maybe dinner with light veggies

For bf I had eggs and veggies every day.
and a very good high dose of probiotics.

I didn´t use any milk the first week - only lots of ghee and a little cheese.,
Next week I added back yoghurt that had fermented 24 hrs.
Now I use all dairy products again.

Grain- no grains at all first 2 weeks- this week I have added spelt and rice back

I seem fine- I have had no reactions when I eat a little spelt or milk.
so for me it was good to go very clean.

thank you all for your digestive health suggestions - i appreciate your input and have some new things to try now.  I've also added lots of calming breathing to my day - amazing how tight I can hold the stomach without realizing it! thanks again, MM

I've had a sudden health crisis - am home after weeks in hospital, including a week in the ICU, and days in the "TICU" (transitioning to regular floor)...
Interestingly, the thoughts and feelings I'm having are not medically-related, but spiritual and related to my creative work. That's where I'm so firmly grounded, in God. Grateful, too, for those who have reached out, across the Atlantic Ocean, even flown across the USA to be with me as I struggled to survive...

Is it okay with y'all that I don't want to ply the details here, now, of the crisis, but just really want to say hello to my clan, and you know who you are?

Love is What Matters.  

On a deep level, it wasn't a bad experience, but a rich one, chock full of stories and blessings. I wouldn't trade it for pristine health without the Wonder, actually. I'm full of a strange but quiet joy and just want to say hello, while I lurk. I've only been home about 24 hours. We'll see. Love you.

Dearest:
Thank you for responding.
Being home from hospital is harder than it was being there.
I am struggling, but your prayers will be answered, I'm sure.
Love is a good thing. It's It, in fact.
Not that food isn't important, too   Yes I still have a sense of humor.

OK, quérida.

I will be meditating on a blog for y'all.
There are so many details re the tiniest aspects of my life right now, overwhelming me, that my writing isn't up to its caliber, but when I can, I will share what presents well.
Meantime, I've just had a visit from the visiting nurse, for the first time in my life. Thanking God for this convenience. I will be regularly visited for awhile. Maybe as this process goes on, I will have interesting things to write about the experience/recovery, but, meanwhile, it's all I can do to just go through it. I am commanded to rest, so I'll have to do some of that right now.
Love as ever.

Hey, thanks for for the reminders...
The link got me me looking around. I had forgotten about Polyflora, so your post made me open the bottle...That and Larch.

Prayers much appreciated.
As I type on the keyboard, I'm looking over the tops of my hands, and they are just covered in the most livid, hideous bruises from having needles lodged in them over weeks. (So many stabbings. And there's alot of this adhesive glue I'm still scraping off my body, where needles and nodes and tubes were held in place by pretty strong tape.) It's a ghoulish combo of almost black, crimson/purple, and greenish brown. And it's hitting me there are other skin repercussions of just being in that setting for that time.

Thanks for helping with this aspect, too.

Thank you.
I'm glad to say:
I just slept from midnight to 8am, with a one hour break in the middle.
That's not something that ever happened in hospital or the intervening nights.

- - - - -

Funny thought upon flossing this morning:
One thing I repeatedly asked for in hospital and was denied was Dental Floss.
I floss every day.
And it's my understanding that bacterial endocarditis is a very serious threat for those with heart disease, and gum health is absolutely critical to maintain. I personally do not have heart disease. But, considering I was in Intensive Care and the TICU, too, it was one of those weird things Modern Medicine just seemed oblivious to. Or, they KNOW about the importance, but - where the rubber meets the road - in the actual hospital - there was no dental floss! It was a PCA (Personal Care Assistant = Nurse's Aide) who said she'd get me some from her own purse. She brought me a little bag of those individual flossers.

Another major lacuna in medical therapy is the neglect to prescribe probiotics in conjunction with antibiotic drugs, even though all sorts of side effects are planned for and palliatively treated (or attempted) when a patient is bombarded with massive antibiotic therapy - as I was, intravenously. I asked about a probiotic. Some said, "Good idea", as in "How 'bout that Super Bowl!" But, in fact, there do happen to exist lines of "medical grade", strong probiotic preparations out there, available, expensive, to consumers in the refrigerated sections of some natural pharmacies - Keep an eye out for them if interested, though we have the finely targeted BT ones. So that was another brick wall in hospital. Insurance companies might consider how much is spent in the hospitals on the effects of destroying patients' good bacterial communities, either in treating the immediate symptoms or in the longer term consequences...

Okay. That opinion may be my energy spurt for the morning. More tiring to write than I'd have liked.

Love you, friends.

Make sure to get enough rest.  It is great that you are starting to get around again, but just take it easy.  Healing takes time and energy.  Love to you!

Thanks.
This evening a prescription arrived from the pharmacy.
I read the first couple of sentences of the accompanying description and was really amazed: People actually TAKE this? I called a friend who has taken it in the past and says it was a big help.

Drug generic name: Zolpidem. Aka: Ambien.
The description involved, basically, sleep-walking type behaviors.
My doctors want to make sure I sleep --- really SLEEP. Not that I walk around and do stuff...! I just think I'd rather suffer some sleep-deprivation (even if the doctors say that that's not a good idea right now) than use Zolpidem. As opposed to, say, nutritional supplements.

That whole "driving the car without knowing it" scenario looks really scary.
Anyone know what I'm talking about?

I've never read that one but if it is anything like waking up and asking your room-mate, "WHO he is...  and WHERE am I?", I am familiar with that one after taking a prescription for three days...  Needless to say, I remain very unfamiliar with prescriptions since...

A somewhat better day.

I did fine, BTW, without the sleep medication. Very glad I didn't take it.
I had asked the visiting nurse if perhaps my sleep-problem were related to the positively massive dose of Killer Antibiotic I was on. I had done a little research and seen where "restlessness" was a possible side effect.

Well: Do you think it's a coincidence that my antibiotic course is now over, and my sleep-sessions are getting longer?

Drugs upon drugs upon drugs. That's how most Americans (my age) live. It's how most MDs operate. (sigh)

I don't know about "uninterrupted". Happy for each complete module of it, however.

Sleeping much better, without drugs.
No antibiotics since Friday, and sleeping okay since then. Coincidence? Perhaps.
Feeling better since last night.
Thanks, friends (bs and nonbs) for your well-wishes!

Good report at Dr.'s office this afternoon.

Excellent bedside manner and detailed, intelligent explanation from MD who had made rounds with me through the ICU and TICU and is now my homecare-Overseeing attending physician. I'm processing his words and very impressed with his openness and continuing interest.

Ran into another of my ICU doctors ("Intensivists", they're called -- Critical Care Specialists), one who was in charge when I was taken in there and who interfaced with my family.  I had to tell him who I was. "WOW!" he exclaimed. "You look fantastic!" Well, of course - Last he saw me I was attached to an entire garage-full of beeping boxes and screens, with needles and tubes and nodes and an oxygen mask. It was a pleasant moment for the man who usually doesn't see the human being IRL after his crew has rescued him/her, and I was glad to provide it. He's a good man.

Today marked one week since my discharge. It was good to summarize at the Critical Care Practice. Lots of questions were answered.

PS. Very interesting datum re: Sleep. The doctor told me that a stay in the ICU is usually ]followed by some sleep difficulties, because being in there blots out the circadian rhythm, he said. (And I was in one of the rooms with no window, so I never knew whether it was 3 a.m. or 3 p.m.) No one else had warned me that it'd be a good ten days after leaving the ICU before my sleep would normalize. "Groups of doctors are making rounds at the foot of your bed at midnight," said the doctor today. "Other specialists are consulting, adjusting, drawing blood, running tests, 24/7. It's a known sleep-destroyer. It's expected that patients will need help with sleep when they've left there."  .... Expected. But nothing is set up to prevent or forestall it...
