Question about seasonings
« on: May 21, 2018, 12:49:31 am »

Does anyone here cook with seasonings like basil, oregano, garlic, parsley etc?
I have been cooking with just salt and pepper for a while now bc of fear of herbs and spices making wd worse. But want to incorporate them back. Wondering if anyone knows if they make a difference in symptoms at all.
I think I’ve read that some people can’t tolerate garlic? But don’t remember.
Thank you.

I’ve been feeling normal lately and ate a McDonald’s salad for lunch and it threw me into acute so since 130 pm I have been shaking with the flu times ten. It’s let up a little but I’m cock eyed. I am so sick of not getting to eat the things I love. I’ve eaten the salads before and this hasn’t happened but that’s been months ago. Crazy how we go through phases.

Major DR, depression, poor sleep, hopelessness, anxiety, SI, detached. All from eating (a lot of) dark chocolate. I hope I feel better today.

I hope you feel better today, too! As much as I love chocolate, I found out the hard way that it affects me in the same way. It seems I’ve become quite sensitive to both sugar and caffeine, both of which are ingredients in most chocolate.

After being terrified of my favorite delicious snack for the last 9 months i decided it was time that i try to eat my fritos honey bbq twists once more. I was hoping that i would no longer be sensitive and was going to post a success story about how i ate the fritos with no ill effects.

i proceeded to become extremely drowsy fall asleep for 6 or so hours and have nightmares and woke up feeling all confused.

No success story for me :S

We don’t have those here in the UK but I looked them up and read the ingredients and they contain Monosodium Glutamate.

https://www.fritolay.com/snacks/product-page/fritos/fritos-flavor-twists-honey-bbq-flavored-corn-chips click the nutritional facts one.

MSG isn’t good for you even if you’re in good health, it’s a known to spike withdrawal symptoms too.

Avoid foods containing MSG, it’s also a common ingredient in Chinese food as well.
