Well, I ordered the ARA6 powdered form today.  It seems to be a great complement to alot of other supplements.

I'm feeling comfortable taking one and a quarter teaspoons of TC in the morning and that's it for the day.  Yesterday I took a full teaspoon in the AM and then again in the afternoon and I trouble getting to sleep.  I was up and down a number of times.  Luckily I had my ultra sound session today and he was aware that I hadn't slept well and adjusted the session to a very comfortable level.  Bless him for that.  

Now I don't know for sure what other factors play into overeating but I have found that I'm craving cheese and crackers.  I used to eat just one or two crackers with cheese but yesterday and today I scarffed down at least half a dozen.  I know that emotional eating played into the whole mix and I intend to correct that through more exercise and less food intake.

Sometimes it is a constant struggle.

Do you keep Bach Rescue Remedy? Or Traumeel ointment?


Don't have either one, but castor oil might do the trick. It has worked for several things in the past. I plan to get some of the BRR the next time I order, though. Hopefully, it won't smell as bad as castor oil!

I wonder if losing sleep made you want to eat. I know it will do it to me - always has.

Spring,

I didn't make that connection, initially, but that might very well be true.

Thank you, yaeli! I did sleep much better than I expected! This morning my toe is bright red/black on top and black on the bottom, but I am very pleased that it is not throbbing at all. It is very sore, though, so I will be limping a little today. Could have been a lot worse! I had been carrying a 24 volt battery too - I think it would have smashed it flat!

I feel that is one reason this forum is so valuable, Joy. We are able to see things from different viewpoints. The effect of something that you notice might never have occurred to someone else!

Injured little toes can hurt for a long time.  I've done that twice over the past 2 years and each time it took months to heal.  The one on my right foot is still a little sore in some shoes.  
I've been fighting the whole sugar thing.  I've been taking the Trehalose Complex in grapefruit juice in the morning and my biggest issue is right when I get home from work.  It's like I can't get to the sweets fast enough. Today I brought some very dark chocolate to work and I hope that if I take a little it will satisfy me and I won't have such a craving.  We'll see.

yes .. I learn new things every day..

As for eating less... well I can have the extra grapefruit which for me is really nice.. if I add TC to it it is even better.. just that little sweetness.. I am not so spoiled any more..

I was able to walk away from some cake last week.. unheard of.. but still no it has not affected my weight at all..

Still no headache.. that is near hard to believe.. I WONDER could anyone report on sinuses??

and those who test for diabetes sticks do any of you see the better or same results?? I don't needle stick so I don't know.. but I wonder if TC could be good for that type of sugar issue and COULD one therefore have to do fewer sticks???  

I think buying reg trehalose as a pound sugar and eat that instead of other sweets might keep my blood sugar in its proper place.. I have no idea what it would do to our body as a side effect if eaten more than a spoon full?? as in added to foods and create a whole new category of allowed sweetened foods??    

I tried rice yesterday.. it was good enough but truly a steak is better.. I gained 2 pounds over night.. and finished the darn thing this morning.. had a piece of choc after and THAT did not even entice me to eat more.. so something is satisfied.. but not worth the weight gain.. it will take me days to get rid of that.. and I need to fit into a dress next week..

so back to meat and greens..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

I haven't been craving sugar, thankfully!! But I did feel the need to keep cramming protein and more protein. It is abating dramatically today, though, so maybe I am over the worst of it.   Yes, I sort of expect this toe to be a while healing, but castor oil really is good for getting inflammation out....

Goldie, rice is a super food for me, but I just can't love it anymore, and it is apt to make me gain weight too! I do MUCH better with sweet potatoes. (Can you have yams and amaranth?) Or one of my amaranth, etc., pancakes. I do use a little brown rice flour added to them sometimes. I don't gain weight eating sweet potatoes or pancakes. But I never eat them at the same meal.

Hi, Mayflowers! The citrus makes it more effective. Do you have to avoid ALL citrus? I have a problem with orange and grapefruit (if I eat it too often) but lemon seems all right for me. (I only use about 1/2 T. with water) I have taken a whole container with no problems. So whatever they are using has been okay for me. If I couldn't tolerate taking it with lemon juice, I would still try it without it. It is a pity you can't buy a sample just to try.

The modified citrus pectin in the NAP TC helps to take waste products from the body, reducing re-absorption in the digestive tract.  Unfortunately, for those with citrus allergy, it may not be possible to take this.  

Hopefully, digestive tract healing will reduce your reaction to all things citrus at some time so you will be able to utilize this formula, if desired.

I'm still allergic to citrus. I started the BTD to late in life. I was 49 when I started. I can't expect a miracle. Well, it would be nice..Even Dr. D told me I can't really change my genes now.. If I was of childbearing age, I could change their genes...It's up to my kids now.. (to change their kid's genes if they want to follow the BTD)

I can only hope that I keep the age related diseases genes from turning on.   I can only tolerate a squirt of lemon juice on fish..Spring. I am allergic to all citrus.

I wonder if a "squirt" would even be the amount in a spoon of Trehalose. I cannot taste anything acidic about it at all. Out of 4000 milligrams total per spoon, the pectin at 235 mgs. is a very small amount. About 6 per cent.
1 teaspoon of citric acid = 4~6 teaspoons of lemon juice = 8 teaspoons of vinegar.

I am completely, utterly unable to eat or drink any citrus.  Lemon water, lemon on fish, fresh grapefruit .. all of them give me horrible heartburn or bumps inside my mouth.

The Trehalose, however, gives me NO problems!  Yay!

I don't know what they mean by "modified" in the description. Maybe that has something to do with the fact that you and I both are not having any problems with it on a daily basis!   I had never been able to tolerate even the amount of lemon I'm using now without problems until after I started on SWAMI. Especially, having it every day! I know Dr. D. recommended it for A-Types, but I couldn't do it!

I was a LOT older than you were when I first started on the diet and about ready for a complete breakdown. Many things can still be fixed - for instance, if my eyelid can suddenly get fixed in a matter of weeks and fatty tumors can shrink at my age - I think the possibilities are worth working toward with enthusiasm!!

I had stomach issues, and they went away after I stopped eating almonds.. but that might just be me.. then again I got it back this afternoon after I ate some stuff I should not .. all avoids serves me right..

Now however I read in a book on reflux that one should do several things..

eat a slice of apple before going to bed.. take a spoon of honey if one feels Like I do right now.. burning all the way up the throat.

TC does not affect me at all - but then grapefruit does not bother me at all ..

a question - if you really needed it - TYC that is - not everyone needs it-  then could you take it without the citrus? I mean it is just enhanced with citrus..

and then also I think that some sensitivity to certain foods - in this case citrus - comes from NOT enough stomach acid and so small amounts of FRUITS might fix it.  

BUT I WOULD stick with only SUPER Diamonds for many months..  In my Swami I can only have Guava and Elderberries for Diamonds.. and I can not find either in the stores..  so I eat Beneficial fruits ..

I don't know what they mean by "modified" in the description.

Included for information purposes ONLY.  This is not an endorsement of this product or an implication that this is the brand used by DPN.  It explains the process and reasoning behind the modification.
Believe it or not, you likely eat pectin daily - it's a soluble fiber found in the cell walls of many plants. It's probably best known for its water-binding ability. When ingested, it helps to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, prevent constipation, and support colon health.  However, while ordinary pectin works well as a fiber that sweeps through your digestive tract, the size of these unmodified pectin molecular chains makes it impossible for them to penetrate your intestinal tract and provide additional benefits.

PectaSol® Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) is a compound comprised of pectin chains that have been "chopped" into a smaller, more concentrated, and more readily absorbed form in the laboratory.  When ingested, these MCP molecules are able to penetrate your digestive lining and travel in the bloodstream to various target points in your body, where they bind with harmful sticky cell surface proteins called galectins and halt unhealthy developments by promoting normal cell division. Multiple published clinical, in vitro, and animal studies have confirmed PectaSol®'s astonishing abilities.


It is possible that the reason this product isn't bothering people normally bothered by citrus is that this is the pectin portion of the food only, with a shortened molecular chain.

I haven't, Goldie. If I had a house full of teenagers who would be dying for brownies and other sweet stuff all the time, I would consider plain Trehalose to use as part of the sweetener. But I never even look at the recipes I used for such as that anymore! My children and their wives and children just have to "make do" with their own versions of sweet poison!!
