Update for E-dieters

Posted by Johnelle on March 24, 1999 at 11:43:11:

Hi, Gang! Where have all the E-dieters gone? I've been on
a two-day trip to Dallas/Fort Worth. I ate every meal in my
car! The first one was THE BEST. I pulled into a gas
station, got gas, staked out a microwave behind the
checker's counter, got her to zap my salmon and barley, and
away I went. Wish I had taken those other two portions of
salmon with me! I realized soon I was going to run out of
food by breakfast the next day. I had to go buy some shrimp
and smoked oysters to get me through till I returned to my
safe haven. It's going to be even worse when I eliminate
fruit tomorrow, because they're so much more portable than
vegetables. There goes my only snack/indulgence.

I concluded my stress presentation on this trip. We began
with a discussion of what they would define as stress, and
then I started talking about chemical stressors, physical
stressors, cited several of the examples in the book -- the
rats with rabies, the HIV pts. doing the four-legged stool,
the milk going to Bangladesh, and eventually led into the
E-diet, stress caused by eating the wrong foods which cause
allergies or aren't right for your blood type/metabolism,
and ended with what I've been doing to reverse the direction
I'm going on the health spiral.

I had handed out eight of Walt's books to members of my
group last month, and there were several very positive
remarks about it. One lady said she couldn't even get home
with hers because a friend begged to read it first.
I passed out four more this trip. Surely I must set the
record for ordering more of Walt's books than anyone else.

Walt and Robert, do either of you do talks? If so, do you
have any cassettes of them? I would love to suggest that
either of you be considered as a resource for one of the
monthly meetings of this group to which we belong. It's
business leaders from large companies in the membership.

My elderly friend who is doing the E-diet asked about celery
being on her first six-day list because she ate it almost
every day. I told her she might want to leave it off???
After the third day she couldn't stand not having it, and so
she ate some, and two hours later, the rash that has been
afflicting her hands and arms for two years started showing
up on her hands. She was elated to discover celery may have
been causing some of her problems. I'll keep you posted on
dear Jennie. She's looking Ag. now and eats like a perfect
lady rather than a savage like me. We had her over for
grilled trout the first night, and I gave her my Alka-Gold
and parsnips which weren't ever used.

Walt and Bob, is there something that needs to be done to
rebuild the beneficial bacteria as I do the GSE and
Nystatin? I need some feedback on this one.

And I've been wondering, how does it work that the body
craves the things it should not have? That doesn't seem
like the way it ought to be. I can't fit that statement in
with the grid of understanding I have been constructing.

Good to get back! And it's good to hear you'll both be
taking a well-deserved break. I don't know how you ever
have time to do anything else with maintaining this bb. I
know it takes a good portion

Hi Johnelle and welcome back, You have been a very busy woman and I am so impressed with your sharing of information. And the other thing that impresses me is how open people seem to be. I too am very enthusiastic about what I have learned here, but I do not get the warm reception about this kind of thing. At times it gets discouraging, and I can only imagine how it must feel for Walt when so many people have the need to give him a difficult time forsimply sharing his message. Anyway, good for you and keep up the good work.

Well I am not doing any more food testing... I didn't even test grains, dairy, wheat. I will take others word for it that they are major allergens I have enough proof of things to avoid, so I will just assume the major allergens are something I will stay away from also.

I am having a bummer of day you might say. Our old german shepherd Dooner dog took a turn for the worst last night. I didn't think he would survive the night but he did. We are calling the vet out this afternoon to euthanize him and it feels so sad. The good news is that we now have 3 baby llamas, and I got to assist in the birth of this one. It was pretty neat. So we are surrounded by life and by death, that is what happens when you live this close to nature and surround yourself with living things.

We have a lovely spot for him, up high on a hilltop where his spirit can soar and he will be free at last. We're going to miss that guy, he has been a faithful companion.

I feel too sad to ask questions about the e-diet Bob, but as soon as I get my head on straight again... I guess the first thing to do is add some acidophollis to my diet. Is that right Bob? Also, I am noticing some muscle fatigue that does not seem to be related to a food reaction that is lingering.

Namaste
Denise

Johnelle,

I don't personally have any tapes or video of some of the talks that I've given (others have taped them but the results were pretty unprofessional). It seems that videos are becoming as popular as books and I am considering checking into what would be involved with making and marketing one.

I'm glad that your friend figured out the celery. If you eat any of the 'safe' foods from the E-diet list on a daily basis you'll need to eliminate that food too. Most folks don't develop allergy to celery very easily. It tells me that your friend, in all probability, has other food sensitivities and leaky gut.

You should be taking an acidophillus/bifudus supplement at least 2X/day with meals. I use an enteric coated capsule from Nature's Way that can be found in the refrigerated section of your health food store.

Dr. Randolph was the first to analyse why food allergens create cravings and then withdrawal when you stop eating them. He found that foods behave much in the manner of addictive drugs. As you probably know things like cocaine stimulate the brain to release endorphins and other neuro-transmitter chemicals. These chemicals enhance our feelings of wellness. Unfortunately when those endorphin levels fall the person senses just the opposite of well-being and then proceeds to look for a 'hit' of the substance that raised endorphin levels in the first place. The problem with cocaine is that with each successive hit MORE stimulation is require to achieve the same 'high' (or feelings of wellness). In order to do this larger doses of cocaine must be given and/or spaced closer together to get the same effect.

Dr. Randolph found that food sensitivities have a similar impact to things like cocaine.

Of course there are other aspects of food that are tied to emotions and memories independent of what is discussed above.

No more symptom-free state?

I forgot to tell you that I went to the site and saw your
baby llama. I was going to get back and post a remark about
how adorable it was, but I got sidetracked when my computer
froze up. That's usually the consequence of viewing a photo
though.

Glad you mentioned the muscle fatigue. I guess we're coming
back from never-never land. I remember them saying that our
symptom state would get to where it was higher and we
wouldn't be able to recognize the reactions as readily after
21 days. I am feeling a little muscle fatigue too.

I admire you for just assuming that you can't have grains,
dairy, etc. I just don't have it in me to do without
something unless it's absolutely necessary. I still think
about how good those rye crackers tasted until the reaction
hit!

Something else I'm wondering besides the acidophilis and
craving the junk you eat, I reread the posts about the
Nystatin treatment recently. Walt said slosh it around in
your mouth for a couple of minutes. Well, Walt and Bob, a
couple of minutes is a long time to slosh. Do you really
mean two full minutes or is that a figure of speech and you
just mean to make sure you rinse the stuff around in your
mouth real good? This is a critical issue with me. :o)

Denise,

You and the other E-dieters will have to give me a quick re-cap on where you are individually. As you have seen there has been some divergence in terms of what each of you are now doing and what you are willing to do.

I'll be happy to lay-out the remainder of the protocol (including supplements) then.

Johnelle,

I have to admit I'm worried about your use of barley. Did you give it the 4 day test?

As far as the nystatin goes -- a couple of minutes mean a couple of minutes. I guess that you don't need to be sloshing continuously but since you won't be talking while holding it in your mouth -- you might as well slosh.

Talk to Trish, she's taking the powder full strength without a little water!

Bob: E-diet status

Bob,

Don't know exactly how much information you want.....

I continued testing up to day 20 (yesterday), but in the evening I started coming down with the virus that my son had when he was visiting this past weekend. Some upper-respiratory virus (his bordered on pneumonia). Because of the sore/scratchy throat and the chest tightness and pain (as well as the headache, sinus congestion, earache, and general all-over aching), I started taking ester-C before going to bed. I woke up this morning not feeling any better, so decided that my food testing was over as of yesterday, and I have been taking ester-C all day (I'm up to 14 grams as of this writing). I'm drinking ALOT of spring water, and even have been doing some VERY gentle rebounding (makes me feel a little spacey, but the rest of my body feels good doing it).

I made it through the food testing with only one reaction: decaf coffee. I ended up successfully testing milk, brown rice, and spelt (although the spelt only got tested 3 days).

I have all my supplements to treat the candida and the other bacteria currently taking up residence in my intestines. They include: caprylic acid, GSE, uva ursi, and emulsified oregano oil. Also have my probiotic (with FOS) standing by. I guess I would start all of these now? Or should I wait until this viral infection goes away?

I finally got my copy of BioBalance in and finished reading it yesterday. It was very enlightening. I would love to read Watson's books now too, but haven't tried to locate them yet.

Anyway, if you need more information, let me know.

Sara

Johnelle,

Glad your trip, mobile dieting, and presentation went well. It's great that people are receptive to what you are presenting to them. I have found my success to be about 50-50. At least I'm reaching some people, and just a few days ago got my second order of Walt's book, and already they are gone except for one, which makes me feel GREAT!

I'm fighting a nasty virus right now, so am anxious to see how this will affect the protocol of the diet (because I started taking ester-C last night, and have continued throughout the day today).

Anyway, glad to have you back!

Denise,

So sorry to hear about your german shepherd Dooner; I'm sure he was a very loving and faithful member of the family. My husband's family raised shepherds when he was young, and my family ended up getting one of them when I was around 8 years old (that's when my husband and I first met). He didn't really want to part with her, and I certainly didn't have any say in the matter - so started years of animosity towards me. She was with us up until I was 17 (around the time when my husband & I started dating). It's been about 36 years since "I took his dog," and we still remember her with great love. She continues to live on in our memories.

Take care,
Sara

Hi Sara,

I guess I need you to take account of where you were, symptom-wise, before and after the diet. In other words what were you trying to improve?

What do you want to improve now?

Have you noticed any changes during the last month that coincided with your menstrual cycle that might indicate that you are metabolically cycling?

Have you tested (Candida Immune Complexes) for candida?

Have you tried the pepto-bismol test yet?

Let me know where you stand and we'll move forward a bit more.

Hi all, Thanks for the condolences. Yes it is so incredibly difficult to make such a decision. This morning the place seems so quiet and empty. When Ralph came by in his old pickup truck with no muffler for the first time in my history of living here there was no Dooner bark.

Last night as we carried him to his resting spot on top of the hill overlooking the valley a blue heron flew by so close you could almost reach up and touch it. I believe it was a good omen, he is flying high now.
Namaste,
Denise





What's a couple of minutes??? :o)

Hi Johnelle!

Well, Bob's right. I'm taking it dry. I believe it even says on the bottle to try to hold it in your mouth as long as possible. So I do.

On the bright side, I have found it to be a big non-issue, frankly. I just shovel a scoop into my mouth and go about my business. Of course your own saliva will start to flow because it's kinda bitter, and so I just swish that around for a few minutes while I do other things. It doesn't get in my way at all. It was more of a pain to mix it with 3 or 4 mouthfuls of water. Then you are slowed down a bit and have to stand there and drink it/slosh it.

I guess I really want to get rid of this stuff, so I will do whatever I have to do that. What's a little bitter powder in my mouth four times a day? No big deal compared to how I feel from the candida. The worst is that the taste stays in my mouth for a long time. (guess I do a good job of sloshing!)

I'm finally starting to see some progress with my energy, though the constant walking with the dogs is tiring me out an awful lot! Figures, just when I might start to really have more energy, I have to use it all up ;-) Brain fog seems to be lifting as well. I still notice a slight difference on days when I take the pepto at night, but I'm only on the second week.

Sounds like everyone is getting along fine, really! You've made it through the worst of it, and now can go on to more exciting stuff!

I'm anxious to start supplementing - especially essential oils. My skin is trashed right now from the winter dryness and because I had neglected taking oils prior to starting the e diet.

So, Bob? When do I start testing supplements, and as far as teh oils go, I have a blend called Ultimate Oils. Do I need to test all the oils separately?

Be well, all,
trish

I've not had the exact condition you have, so what I say is just a thought/observation based on what I've read.

Trish said: I'm finally starting to see some progress with my energy, though the constant walking with the dogs is tiring me out an awful lot!

I wonder if possibly you are overdoing it with the dogs. Walt recommends aerobic exercise. If you are getting out of breath keeping up with the dogs, then this is not aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise--you should feel like you could do it for hours on end.

If I'm on track, fine. If off track, then never mind.

Thanks, Johnelle.

Your contributions to the BB are always so helpful!

I do do presentations. I have done many hundreds of them all over the country and enjoy doing them very much. If I do say so myself I am very good at it. I think any presentation has to hit people at a gut level since that is wher true learning begins. I have urged people to record my sessions and give the tapes to anyone interested but I have not recorded them for myself. Most of my serious presentations (2-8 hours) have been slide presentations so one would have to have a video of the presentation to get the flavor.

As a matter of fact, 2 years ago I did a series of presentations at which they insisted on video taping them all so they could sell them in the local health-food store. They then, as a gift of love, sent me a complete set.

SO, there is a set in existance for at least those presentations.

Hi, Johnelle.

Mouthwash manufacturers recommend "sloshing" for at least a minute. If People would do that with the nystatin, it probably would be enough. The idea is to get the stuff into the tiniest crevases aroung the teeth.

However, knowing human nature, I am sure that I will get a full minute if I recommend two. Now that I have said this, how many people will try to get by with 30 seconds???

Unfortunately, not doing the nystatin enough significantly lengthens the total treatment AND increases the relapse rate. Is it worth it?

VERY good question. Hope this helps.

Walt: This is great news about at least one set of presentations being videotaped. Have you considered having them duplicated and selling them yourself?

Or just making a few sets for "Walt Library Loan" You could mail them to folks (for a nominal "rental" fee) around the country to view and then to mail on to the next person who wanted to see them? Just some thoughts.

And the next time you do a presentation, DO tape it and keep copies of your viewgraphs. Have you thought of having the content of your viewgraphs put on your web site. Just another thought for an extremely busy man.

Lastly (at least for now), is there a way you could let us know when and where you will be presenting? If we knew when and where, we could make some effort to be there to see and to meet you. You are in Panama City FL, not that far from Huntsville, AL, for example. It would be worth the drive to see you. Do you have a guest house, by any chance, out by the beach :-) Surely everyone who lives there lives right on the ocean, with a beautiful white sand beach at their front door. At least they did till the last hurricane :-)

Thanks so much for your concern, Jim. I agree with you - I AM overdoing it a bit right now. Unfortunately, I can't explain that to Spencer, my new dog! He's a ball of fire. He's strong as an ox and nobody bothered to train him yet, so we have a long way to go! (my other dog is starting to look like quite the angel!)

Anyway, if I don't walk him as much or as fast as I do, I PAY for it as he gets unruly and extremely boisterous with pent-up energy! Between him and the new neighbors who moved in next door and insist on playing basketball practically against my back porch, my house is in an uproar!

I am confused about your statement that if I get out of breath it's not aerobic. I beg to differ with you. "Aerobic" has to do with oxygen...so by definition, aerobic exercise would be that which causes you to use a lot of oxygen. So, yes I get quite a supply of air going and the blood pumping, and can work up a sweat even in the cold! Well, I'm not gasping, though, if that's what you meant.

The problem is that I'm doing this three times a DAY instead of three times a week! I have had to (eeeekkk, didn't want to admit this) forego my SR sessions because I just don't feel like I have the time right now. I've been sneaking them in at odd times, but haven't been able to maintain my previous discipline of 2 per day.

This too, shall pass. He will mature and we will all get into a routine soon.

Thanks for your thoughtful post!

Trish,

I've never seen anyone have an allergy to an essential oil. I'm not sure what the breakdown of oils in Ultimate Oil but you can go ahead and test it.

Now that you're not in the jaws of candida die-off we can safely proceed to the H-G supplements.

Aerobic vs Anaerobic exercise

At one end of the exercise zone is things like weight lifting. If a person is lifting very heavy weights, they basically don't breathe regularly while they are lifting, thus this is not considered aerobic exercise.

My understanding is that if a person is exercising (like running with your new eager dog!) hard enough that they can no longer hold a normal conversation while exercising, that they have left the strictly aerobic exercise "zone" and are in at least a partially anaerobic exercise zone, which cannot be maintained indefinitely, since their body cannot supply sufficient oxygen from the lungs to maintain current needs. That was what I was suspecting was happening to you and why you were being tired out so afterwards.

I'm sure others here will have something to say about this! :-)

Thanks, Bob. I thank you. My skin thanks you.

Do I just start taking it? Also, please point me in the right direction for the other HG supplements. I printed out the diet, but don't think the supplements are listed on that version :-) I will wait to hear from you when and if I should begin other supplements. I'm still only on week two of pepto stuff, as a reminder.

Bob, the only thing I'm questioning right now is lettuce. I used to eat a great deal of romaine with other greens like raw endive, escarole and mesclun mix (no head lettuce)as salads, usually, but not always with meat of some kind. I did not test lettuce since it was on the avoid list, but I must admit I miss it. I am going to try some cooked endive tonight with olive oil. Should I try some of the other non lettuce greens I used to eat or should I just forget about them.

I have not lost any more weight, which I find surprising. I'm wondering if I am not getting enough carbs, since the last time I did something like this, I did eat all those greens. I also wonder if an HG can eat too much fat. I love it, and have been chowing down on all the extra stuff around the steaks and the chicken skin and even gnawing on the cartilage on the beef ribs I've eaten! (GGRRR!)

Thanks as always for your time and patience!!

Aerobic vs Anaerobic exercise - I'm curious, too! Anyone?

Hi again, RH Jim,

Although that is not what is happening to me (in fact I'm holding a continuous, and sometimes loud, conversation with the dogs!), I am still curious about our different views on this. I was NEVER under the impression that aerobics was something that one could maintain indefinitely.

I guess I'm a bit of the "no pain, no gain" attitude. It's outdated, perhaps, but I feel that effort must be put forth to see results. You must push yourself to your limits in order to extend them. (That's not where I am right NOW, mind you - just tryin' to get the dogs walked!)

In class, they taught us to get to a maximum heart rate (determined by some set formula that now escapes me) and maintain that for 20 to 40 minutes, depending on how advanced the class was. There would be a warm up first and a cool down after. There is NO WAY I could have maintained the max heart rate level of activity for longer than say an hour.

Are there any aerobics or exercise experts out there!

I'm certainly not an exercise expert, but I suspect I understand the source of the confusion. We get our energy from cellular respiration, which includes both anaerobic respiration (glycolysis) and aerobic respiration (citric acid or Krebs cycle). Normally, the byproducts of glycolysis are used by the citric acid cycle, where most of our energy is produced. Thus, we are always relying on both anaerobic and aerobic respiration.

When exercise is sufficiently intense, the energy produced by aerobic respiration is insufficient, and the body begins to derive extra energy from anaerobic respiration alone (lactic acid is one of the waste products). But you're still depending mainly on aerobic respiration, and you're still performing aerobic exercise (whose definition, as far as I know, has little to do with cellular respiration).

Cheers,
-- Aaron

Note for metabolic type afficiandos: If a Hunter-Gatherer eats an excessively light diet, glycolysis is too fast -- its byproducts are generated more quickly than the citric acid cycle can use them. An Agriculturalist who eats an excessively heavy diet has the opposite problem; glycolysis is too slow. For a more thorough explanation, consult Dr. George Watson's "Nutrition and Your Mind" (1979).

Trish,

A H-G probably will over-eat carbs rather than over-eating fat and purine. Generally the higher the carb intake the more susceptible you are to a hypo-glycemic episode which will make you hungrier earlier. I guess what I'm trying to say is that it isn't a caloric thing as much as it's a 'balance' thing.

Try the lettuce and see what happens. I would avoid doing the crunchy, garden fresh salad thing very often though.

The supplements that Dr. Wiley suggests in BioBalance are as follows:

Vitamin/Mineral Full Dose
A (palmitate) 10,000 lUs
E (mixed tocopherols) 400 lUs
B12 l00mcgs
Niacinamide l00mgs
Pantothenic Acid or Calcium Pantothenate 100 mgs
Inositol 250mgs
Choline 250mgs
Calcium 5OOmgs
Phosphorous 250mgs
Iodine (derived from kelp) 0.15 mgs
Zinc l0mgs

You can get the B-vitamins in the 100 mcg increments from Twinlabs as well as a Inositol/choline mix. I much prefer using Calcium Hydroxyapetite from Ethical Nutrients (Bone Builder) or from Solaray.

I don't take supplemental iodine since I routinely eat the sea vegetables.

I take a sub-lingual form of B-12 also from TwinLabs. I don't take A since I get plenty from carrots and parsnips and I don't take E for the same reason. The E is also derived from soy which I'm not too keen about. The natural formulations are pretty expensive too.

Start with a full dose of the above at breakfast and then again at lunch.

Thanks, Walt and Trish

Two minutes isn't any big deal if it's a true battle with
candida. It's a big deal if I haven't gotten that clarified
and I am on a five-day trip to Charleston later this month,
walking around all day with three dear friends who have lots
of questions about what I'm doing as I swish something
around in my mouth for two long minutes as they are
chatting. Just wanted to make sure it WAS important before
I actually went through with it several times a day. ;o)
I am committed to doing ANYTHING it takes to win this war!

Hi, RocketHealer Jim.

Such nice comments!

I guess I have always given everything away.

Of all the conferences I did, the well organized ones taped everything & then offered the tapes to the participants. I always encouraged them to do so & never got anything for it.

I should have at least had them give ME a set and maintained a library on my own.

Every 4th monday night I do a free 2 hour presentation for Capstone House, here in Panama city. Subjects are announced a couple of months in advance and you could get a head start by contacting Capstone House for their newsletter. I am sure they would put you on their mailing list for a nominal fee to cover postage & handling. Most of the membership are retired professionals of one kind or another. Call (850) 747-9224 Mondays 1-4 PM.

By the way, they are having their 10th anniversary conference at the college this October 15-16th (Friday evening & all day Saturday). I have presented several times for their annual conference like this. I have been able to get my mentor in Holistic Medicine (Jack Travis, MD---the man who coined the term "wellness medicine" back in the 70s) to speak this year. He will cover the "potential human" from a wellness perspective. There will be 3 speakers and a round-table of all the speakers to close the conference. The newsletter would give lots of information about that too.

I do not have a "beach house". We live very simply. Jack will be staying with us for the conference. I am looking forward to THAT.

Thanks for asking.

Thanks, Aaron.

Your explanation is closest to MY understanding.

NORMALLY, oxygen goes from our lungs to a stored type of oxygen in our cells and THEN from that stored form into action. This is so we will INSTANTLY have oxygen available for action when the sabretooth tigre comes and not have to wait till we can breathe fast enough to start running. OR, so we can fall into the water & still be able to swim until we can breathe again.

IS THIS MAKING SENSE?

When we do sustained exercise at a specific rate for our age (the whole basis for the term Aerobics & the charts in the book) after an average of 12 1/2 minutes we have exhausted our stored oxygen. THEN, we switch into directly using oxygen from our lungs into action (aerobic).

It is THAT mechanisn that does all the wonderful things for us. The reason we are told to do this for 20 minutes is that we need at least a few minutes of this mechanism at least 3 times a week to change the way we metabolize and so get our rejuvination. Since 12 1/2 minutes is the average, some people achieve it in 8 minutes and others only in 16 minutes. Those who are 16 minute people will only get 4 minutes of aerobics if they do it for 20.

Those who get it in 8 minutes could quit in 12 minutes & do as well. Unfortunately, the tests to figure out which you are cost a lot of money and are only available in a few places.

Hope this helps,

Walt

I would also like to know the difference between aerobic and anaerobic activities. I am doing a report that includes these answers in them and I would like to know more about the differences and examples of both.

Thank you

Hi, K.B.

I described this differeence in great detail within the past few months on this BB. The only place where it should be archived is in the link I have prepared for you below. However, we are about 6 months behind on archiving so it might be lost on the BB. Bill and RHJ seem to have the magical knack of how to find stuff like that by subject only so if it is not in the stuff below, drop a BB note to them.

Dr. Stoll, this seems a good place to ask this question:

How soon after eating a meal is it okay to exercise. I've taken up rollerblading (great aerobic workout that's fun!)and about 1/2 hour after dinner seems to be the perfect time to go...it's still light outside but the heat is gone. I skate about 25 -30 minutes. I have no adverse physical symptoms and feel great afterwards.

Looking forward to your answer!

Rosemarie

Hi, Rosemarie.

So long as you get away with it like you are, I see no problem with doing it exactly as you have been.
