I know to avoid them, but what was I to do.  I was at the Fairbanks International waiting for my flight home to Tacoma and knew it would be at least 7 or 8 hours before I could get home.  I needed to eat.

I looked over the menu and couldn't find much.  I chose the gyro without the pita and got three skinny slices of lamb gyro meat on a piece of some type of lettuce, two slices of tomato, some onion  and something that didn't closely resemble tzatziki sauce and a mess of french fries.  

I hadn't eaten a fry since 2004.  I knew the lamb wasn't my best choice, but seriously, the menu was not Type A friendly enough for me.  I originally ordered the veggie omelet but was told breakfast was over.

Given the choice of going without food for 8 hours more or eating something I had already paid for, I ate it... fries and all.  I did refrain from ketchup... why add vinegar and more nightshades to the party?

Now I have a lumpy rash on the palm of my right hand and the knuckles of my left hand ache.  Both symptoms are typical reactions for me when I just can't seem to avoid anything from the nightshade family, usually tomato.  From experience I know the rash will last up to a month and the achy joints may persist for several days.  It's not debilitating, just annoying.

I'm wondering if anyone knows a remedy for this.

flush your body, drinking lots of water, plus your bennies and green tea! )

Cybrtooth,

Do you have any Deflect readily available?  Taking some Deflect may help with your symptoms; and perhaps trying the detox protocol from the Encyclopedia.

And as always, I would encourage you to stay consistent and compliant as much as possible...especially favoring beneficial food choices.

No  - I keep forgetting to order it, but that is a great idea for when I'm on the road.  

I looked up the detox protocol and need to slap myself upside the head!  I always forget to do the dry skin brushing.  I should make my brush a mandatory item I pack along.  I need to do some shopping so will pick up what I need.

I do try hard to stay on a "bene binge" for example I even eat lots of bene veggies for breakfast...  sauteed broccoli, onions, mushrooms, carrots and garlic with my eggs is my breakfast of choice.  It's when I'm on the road I have a hard time.

I have an extra body brush and grapeseed oil in a small container that stays in my travelling bag for when I am out of town.   That way I never forget it.  No matter how much lecithin I take. ;)

good idea and I do have an extra body brush.  Thanks!

I keep a food box in the car, but this was our first travel by air for work.  I even have ghee in the box as well as green tea and sea salt and anchovies and canned wild salmon.  By car, I'm good to go.

I found air travel a challenge.  I used to have a "restaurant" bag in which I carried sea salt and EVOO, but I left it in a restaurant.  I don't normally carry a purse as we aren't allowed to on the job.  I may have to rethink this and maybe load up a fanny pack.
