Have Better Health
Introduction- Chronic Ills Can Go to Hades; My Journey to Remedying Chronic Fatigue, Chronic Pain, Chronic Brain Fog, Vertigo, and more...
First, I've got to share some links to an amazing book I found for ME/CFS, written by an MD trained in functional medicine.
CFS Recovery, Hardcover
CFS Recovery, Kindle
My Own Journey with improving the Symptoms of CFS/ME
This is an introduction to food changes, lifestyle changes, and spiritual changes that have literally saved my life. I'm starting with the food list because it brought the fastest physical results. I had more mental energy, clarity, and focus within 24 hours. I'll be adding info about supplements as well, info about my own health concerns, and sharing my improvements. You can subscribe to free email alerts in the future, as I share new articles about all I've found.
You can soon download the Paleo based, ultra low FODMAP (low sugars and carbs), simplified food list for free, but please contribute at least $1.00. Being as sick as I was brought me to the verge of homelessness, so if you can contribute more, it will enable me to share more and more, and rebuild my life. The helpful information I've found and used while frequently bedridden and exhausted is tough to find, so I am eager to continue with quick effectiveness. For now, it's posted for you to copy and paste, screenshot save, etc. Thanks so much for your contributions!

THE LIST: Chronic Ills Can Go to Hades
Always consult a medical professional before changing your diet. This list is from my own personal experience in having greatly improved health; I use it in repetition for 3-8 weeks. I started with a 1 week commitment, and felt so much better, I didn't want to stop. :) I reintroduce a food every 3-4 days, then note any return of symptoms. If symptoms worsen after eating a food not on the list, I follow the list for 1 week or more to reset. This simplified, Paleo based food plan is temporary. I started with what I could, and it still helped, enormously. Remember, THIS IS TEMPORARY.
I excluded all grains, legumes (including soy), dairy, eggs, nightshades (tomatoes, peppers, eggplant), nuts, seeds, spices (seeds or pods), starchy/higher glycemic veggies (potatoes, parsnips, beets, sweet potatoes, yams), fruits, except lemon and lime. I also eliminated food additives as much as I could/entirely when possible, such as preservatives, fillers, sugar, corn syrup, and weird stuff I can't pronounce, lol.
I ate/eat only these foods, and eat up to 5-6 times a day (4-5 usually does it for me):
All seafood, all poultry, beef, pork, lamb, mutton, goat, venison, bison, elk. 2-4 oz. per meal, depending on your size and activities. Grass fed, unprocessed is best.
All animal fats (recommend Epic brand), butter, ghee, coconut oil, olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon per meal (adds flavor and calories in place of carb foods; less if you want to loose weight).
All leafy herbs, no spices (seeds, pods).
Condiments, other stuff:
Apple cider vinegar (moderate, 1 teaspoon a day).
Coconut yogurt, unsweetened
(use like sour cream)
Coconut milk, fresh (or coconut cream made with a juicer).
Coffee, tea, water
Sea salt (sparingly).
Lemon, lime (moderate).
Parsnips (limit, omit if your belly bloats [OIYBB])
Squash (Kabocha, acorn, pumpkin, OIYBB)
Veggie, Moderate, 1/2 cup a day:
Kale (1 cup)
Green onion or leeks
I was sure to temporarily exclude garlic, onion, ginger, alfalfa sprouts, echinacea, St John's Wort, Asian ginseng, or anything known to affect the immune system. This temporary diet is a chronic illness protocol diet. As of 06/2017, a specific diagnosis has not been found for my condition. These foods or herbs can cause flare ups of symptoms in some people if over used.
