Bananas

Before my rescue doses caused a setback I used to eat a lot of overripe bananas as they were beneficial for my GERD, which before this setback was one of my only real withdrawal symptoms. I ate one ripe banana today and it revved me up. Is there some theory on why this is the case? Could this be because of rapid changes in blood sugar level? Or is it because of tryptophan in bananas?

Six-foot-six kook claims to look eight months pregnant from a benzo withdrawal symptom that doesn’t exist

Benzo Belly Relief?
« on: August 31, 2020, 08:44:27 pm »

Hi People.

Apologies if this question has been raised before, but one of my worst symptoms 20 months since finishing my taper is benzo bellly.
I’m a tall man at 6 feet 6 inches and always used to be a string bean.
At the moment I look like like a string bean who’s 8.5 months pregnant with twins!
I have read that the only thing that really helps benzo belly is time, but has anyone found anything that really helps to relieve the symptoms?
My poor stomach has never been so ill and is completely solid as if I have a bowling ball in my tummy.
I also have a lot of trouble breathing due to the size of my stomach to the point where I’m gasping for air and start to panic a bit.
Any updated thoughts on how to combat this dreadful benzo belly symptom would be very very welcome.

Thank you! X

“One bad apple”

Hi, I just ate an apple that had a little alcohol taste to it and now I’m afraid it will set me back a little.. Do such small amounts of alcohol have any impact on the gaba receptors?

Apples don’t have alcohol in them. You should worry about eating apples, they are very good for your overall health.

Thank you for your response, […]. Well there can be if the fruit is ripe/overripe. The yeasts can ferment the sugars of the fruit and produce alcohol.

Honestly, this should not be something you need to worry about. I ate a lot of fruit during my taper and recovery in an effort to eat cleanly.

Unless your apple was a mushy pile of fermented goo= I think you are getting a bit overly anxious. Not many people are going to pick up a fermented apple and manage to eat it. Animals do it fairly often and exhibit signs of intoxication but those are some seriously fermented fruits! It is much more likely that your apple was in the same container as a bad apple and took on some odor/taste that absolutely will not mess your system up. This is why they have the whole “one bad apple” saying = They quickly take on the icky odor/flavor of a nearby nasty one. It doesnt hurt you, it just makes for an unsalable product. Maybe just don’t eat the rest of it if it doesn’t taste right?

Any males experienced this? I first noticed it about a month ago and since then it’s fallen out and thinned our considerably with large patches with no hair.
I don’t know if this is Benzo related or not.

Food reactions
« on: June 16, 2020, 07:15:48 pm »

Hi.
I am really sensitive to food and react to literally anything i eat. 20 minutes after eating a meal the DP/DR and high anxiety start to come up and can last for even a couple of hours. I got kind of used to this and never really tried to do anything about it as I have not been eating sugar/foods high in glutamic acid/anything processed/foods high in histamine etc. anyway and cutting out even more foods is just impossible at this point. Also, i am extremely extremely skinny so that’s also why i can’t limit the food im eating. So i have a question: Is it bad for my healing to just continue eating like i always did and react to it heavily? I wonder if it causes even more excitotoxicity and damage my brain even more than it already is…

Hi amkn
Sugar is really bad for anybody’s brain, even not in wd.
It ramps me up to panic attack level now.

I’m super skinny too. Had lost sooo much weight. I can eat no sugar, gluten, caffeine, msg, processed food. But I’ve been able to put back 20 pounds by adding coconut oil, avocado, olive oil to my smoothies. I eat a lot of protein- nuts, eggs, peanut butter on a spoon. I have meat or fish with a potato for dinner. I found decent gluten free bagels at Aldi’s and Trader Joe’s. I slather them with real butter. I’ve recently been able to add dairy back into my diet, slowly, so cheese and milk is helping pack on the pounds.

Good for you ligma that you can still eat nuts meat etc.

I’m on the same boat. Can’t eat anything contains glutamate on top of everything you listed so nuts meat etc have to go.

Amkn,
It depends on how bad the reaction is for you. If you feel like you can still handle then balance the 2 sounds good. For me, each tiny wrong food put me in a life threatening situation and long lasting setbacks so I have no option.

I’m 5’5 and weigh less than 90 pounds now. Lost about 15 pounds during and after tapering.

Was looking at the active ingredient of Frontline(isoprinil). It is used to treat fleas, lice, heartworm, mites, and who knows what else. Apparently it affects GABA receptors and that stuff has a half life of half a month.. Has anyone gotten that stuff on their skin? Were you alright?
