    I only use Himalayan or grey celtic sea salt. How lucky to be able to make your own jerky and have access to real honey Heidi. It dawned on me that I should look into getting a dehydrator, and using it for vegetables and meats. I’d have plenty of snacks then. I can’t have nuts, fruit, chicken, turkey, or eggs, but I like your snack selection just the same John. Once you retrain yourself to eat real food again, and see it doesn’t make you feel bad, you don’t miss the other stuff that did.

    I hardly eat nuts due to the mold and toxins they contain. I'm already intolerant to peanuts, walnuts, and almonds thanks to gluten intolerance. Those binned nuts are awful for mold. Better to eat nuts with their shells still on if you must, but even then, they're probably old and rancid by the time they get to the stores. Gluten and legumes aren't for human consumption. Animals stay clear of them. They know better then us.

    I only eat protein or cooked veggies and salad veggies like peppers, cucumbers, celery, carrots, cherry tomatoes, etc. I stay clear of jerky since it  usually contains soy and sugars. I don't like the peanuts or peanut butter since they contain mold, and have a toxin the body doesn't like. Other nuts would be a better choice, but just a few, you don't need a lot. 

    Fructose is being found to be disruptive to the body so it's best to keep it low in the diet. That includes fruits. You could be fructose intolerant and don't know it, or are allergic to a particular fruit. I had 3 head bumps that got infected and went into my occiptial lymph node on the side of my neck so it swelled up and I needed a Z Pack. I thought it was a reaction to shampoo/styling aids, which now more often then not, contain plant and fruit extracts too.

    I don't like the peanuts/butter on your list, and am suspicious of the jerky if it contains soy and added sugars. Peanuts have mold and contain a toxin. I'd stay away from anything that's high in sugar. Dried fruits are all sugar. If fruit is giving you that boil reaction, I”d stay clear of that too. I haven't had a piece of fruit in 8 months. Fruits are high in fructose which is being found to disrupt uric acid levels, etc. Fruit and sugar were only available to people a few months out of the year and only what was locally grown, so it wasn't in their diets all year long like it is now, so the body could handle it better. You could be fructose intolerant for all you know. The body was meant to run on glucose from veggies. Fruits break down to fructose/glucose in the body and are just like table sugar. It promotes inflammation with AGE's (also found the burnt part of foods like the dark part of toast), and shortens lifespans. I can't handle sugar at all so I don't eat any. Most people should eat maybe 25 grams of fruit a day or less, better to have no more then 15 grams, which would be 1 to 2 small portions of low fructose fruits. Dr. Mercola has a list of those. I eat protein and/or veggies for snacks. I cut up red, green, yellow, and orange peppers or cucmbers, etc. and carry them with me. I'll eat a few shrimp, or some pieces of left over steak, a hard boiled egg, etc. I use no condiments except for sea salt. You get used to it after a while. 

    What's funny is I had a reaction of head bumps I though was from shampoo that inflamed an occipital lymph node in my neck. I had no idea that node was connected to the scalp. What if it was from something I ate and not the shampoo? I had to take a Zpack for it which wasn't great for my Candida issue.

    I agree 100%. I don't use anything with glycerin in it. It irritates me. I use salt to brush with and sometimes hydrogen peroxide and baking powder. I also use a pinch of baking powder and some water as a deoderant. Works great. I use it to wash my hair as well after making a mixture of it with water. I rinse with diluted vinegar. Works as good as anything to clean hair. I get reactions to just about everything out there, so I had to find alternates. I use 100% cocoa butter to moisturize. I'd use coconut oil but I'm intolerant to it. Anything you put on your skin goes into it, so I can't take a chance.

    I read that teflon pans kill birds if they're in the same room they're being used in, especially if the pan is deteriorating. I used one once and got rid of it. The idea of a coating wasn't appealing and I felt it wasn't healthy.

    This sweetner is in my nasal spray. My MD Nutritionist said it was fine and that it wouldn't affect my Candida at all. I can't eat anything with sugar in it for that problem.

    Thank you. I switched to grass fed beef and can feel the difference, so I'll try to find eggs that are not given any supplemental grains with their free range diet. I'm surprised how sensitive I've become.

    Thanks. Unless I'm wrong about this, I've read that chicken's are given various diets depending on whether they are used for egg laying, or going to become someone's meal. Free range doesn't necessarily mean they aren't getting some grains in the supplemental feed. I'll be calling various company's to find an egg I can eat. I switched to grass fed beef a few weeks back, and I can definitely say I think it makes a difference in how I feel after a meal. I didn't think I was that sensitive, but I guess I am.

    I too have a card, and almonds are on it ! I have several moderate foods besides the 22 I'm intolerant too that I still can't eat after being on this diet 8 months. It's possible I could be reacting to them due to my Candida level and not the intolerance, but who knows. I'm very limited since my choices are few due to intolerance and Candida (got that from antibiotic use). I only have enough protein choices to rotate 2 days. I hope this doesn't open me up to getting intolerant to what I can still eat. I take supplements, digestive enzymes,  probiotics, and Nystantin. 

    I was told I wasn't digesting my food, which can't be helping me get the nutrients I need to heal. I'm hypothyroid, so I have one autoimmune disease. I don't mind having to eat the way I do, or how long it will take me to heal. I actually prefer plain unadulterated food with just a sprinkle of high quality sea salt to ignite a food's flavor. I've always eaten this way. I cook like expensive steak houses do. I just leave off the butter and garlic, but use them for my husband's food. He says my cooking is like eating at fancy restaurants, so he never wants to eat out.

    If microwave ovens deplete nutrients in food, I'm sure radiation is affecting that in some way too. I wouldn't eat it. It's probably another useless gimic to make money which seems to count more these then then doing what's safe.

    I don't touch any gluten free products. I'm afraid to. I can get gas in 5 minutes of eating something that has sugar/starch in it. I've been gluten free for months now, but nothing's changed yet. I suspect it will take a few years if at all to recolonize my colon after what gluten and a few antibiotics did to it the last few years.

    I'm wondering the same thing. I had 2 tiny polyps removed on my lastest colonoscopy two weeks ago. I suspected gluten intoleranced 5 years ago when 2 skin tabs were found, but tests were negative for gluten at that time, until recently. I'm hoping my next colonoscopy in 5 years is clean. My husband produces them. I've put him on my diet. It's helped his blood sugar slowly return to normal. Maybe he'll stop producing polps too.

    A stronger immune system is the goal in making you more bullet proof to illness. Sugar lowers immunity immediately, and grains are high in that, so eating a true gluten free diet and no processed foods should help. Don't use over the counter medications. They interfere and do more harm then good, and make your liver work harder. Eat home made chicken soup, boil carrots, celery, onions and eat them with the broth, breathe steam in over a cup of hot water, stay well hydrated, and rest. Hope you feel better.

    Thanks everyone. I'll check out all your suggestions. I felt tons better the day after the colonoscopy. I used Smart Water for the prep. Could be some of my symptoms were heightened being in a slightly dehydrated since menopause. I'll continue drinking it and see if it helps.

    Antibiotics affect me too. Can't really use them without paying for it.  A compounding pharmacist can make you the one you need to take without gluten in it. I read Cipro was gluten free, but it won't work on everything.
