    I liked that--something to do when there is nothing more interesting!--should try that the next time.--someone said house work was therapeutic for them--all I can say is good on you for those who feel that way.

    Is it ok to say that you dont luuuuurve cooking and housework and you just do it because its got to be done? Well I happened to admit as much while serving some delicious lunch to a couple of middle aged ladies yesterday --they looked a bit stunt--I don't know whether it was because the thought was far too alien to them or because I voiced my feelings aloud.
  21. sure will do. Whats your masters in? My course is also supposed to be full time but i am planning to take it part time at least in the first sem.

    Dearest Ladies, lend me your ears. I've been woefully absent from Pomsinoz for the past several weeks. but that time has been put to very good use. As you may or may not know--I am a doctor as well as a patient. I suffer from a variety of autoimmune conditions so I've always had a keen interest in what can help me get better and in what can help me get worse. Long story short I've learned a lot over these past years and in the past few weeks have come across through further research of certain dietary changes that can be beneficial which I would just like to share. Two main things that I've learned is that wheat in all its shapes and forms need to be avoided as well as other gluten containing cereals--actually they advice a complete cut out of most cereals until gut healing has taken place and then slowly millet, buckwheat or quinoa can be introduced. Me being me have cut out everything else but for a bit of rice for my carbs. The second important thing is with regard to the milk we consume--more info on this is available on Dr. Keith Woodfords blog and in his book the devil in the milk. A short synopsis of the issues with our milk can be found here at Milk and medicine - http://internationaldoctors.blogspot.com.au/2013/02/milk-and-medicine.html So needless to say I've now cut out milk and gluten from my diet--and am already starting to feel better. To top it all I have also switched completely to the use of coconut oil and all things coconut. Coconut oil --esp the ketones that it provides has been shown to be beneficial to the brain especially in Alzheimers, Parkinsons and in autism. So this is my diet in a nutshell and I aim to keep you posted on how its going. I feel that those who suffer from various cancers too may benefit from certain aspects of this diet in addition to certain other non-conventional therapies. Please read about GAPSyndrome for more info. P.S ---I have no personal pecuniary interests in any of the diets and issues mentioned:biggrin:. Just sharing because I know many of us on here suffer a lot--just hoping that this may help in some small way.
  23. Ha! Adonna you give me hope. I'll be doing a masters in Infection and Immunity. Just to wet my toes so to speak--my ultimate dream is to do research that will bring some sense in the management of autoimmune conditions and other similar self inflicted conditions. Wish me luck:biggrin:.
