Gluten, dairy etc: Adding food back after elimination diets

I was on elimination diets for a long time and needed to be in order to quiet down the chaos in my body. I now know more than when I started and hope that the general method of learning to listen is helpful to others since I know the details will be different for everyone.

Learning about how to listen to the body takes time.

This is a very important project! Among other things our gut health and the quality of our waste is of utmost important to our physical and mental well-being, but as Shawn Shafner points out the implications of the taboo on speaking about poop goes much farther than that.

Info on food allergies — they can affect body and mind both

Most people with food intolerances have no idea they have them. The only reason I learned about my own is because the impetus to become healthy became so great I started doing lots of research about healing naturally.

The drugging of our children

This is an old video and post. Things have only gotten worse. If we don't want to create millions more people crippled by drugs we need to stop diagnosing and drugging children's behavioral problems as serious mental illness.
