Is it working?

So many people have asked me if this new super restrictive diet is working. Well let me see I haven't had abdominal pains in at least 2 months. I would say that is a huge YES! Though I am far from being completely better as I still have some of the other not as painful symptoms I can tell I am slowly getting better. Not only can I tell a difference in myself but the kids too. For starters my oldest (GG) who used to get between 4 and 5 headaches a week and 1 to 2 what we call threw up headaches (migraines) a month, now gets maybe one head a week if not every other week or longer. To add to that the last time she got a threw up headache was after she ate a piece of pie that was in no way apart of our new diet and she did throw up! Here is another example that I know this is working...we have recently gone to two different parties and Red has eaten the food there which was processed and so not apart of our new diet. Both times he threw up the next morning. Never got a fever or any other symptoms and didn't threw up after feeding him "our" food. Monkey and Peanut are just pretty healthy and straying from the diet hasn't been too hard on them but I can tell they do much better on it! Also two of the kids have had friends in their classes with the H1N1 and they never got it. Not only is this diet good for detoxing mold but it is also a great immune booster! This is by far the healthiest winter we have had.

Good for you. Eating better is a hard commitment, especially through the holidays or around church folk. Seems like we're always finding some reason to eat and most of it isn't healthy. It's rewarding to see health benefits from your discipline. Keep up the good work.

It's always so interesting to see how MUCH the food we eat effects us. I think the overwhelming majority of people are under the impression that your diet doesn't really matter, but BOY, does it.
Sometimes it costs a bit more money to eat healthy too, but I chalk it up as an expense that I WONT have to later spend on healthcare!
Glad you guys are all getting better!
