I know what I am about to say may raise some eyebrows, cause some concern, generate some strong opinions and maybe start some healthy conversation too.

I have been seeing a new doctor at Ohio State to help figure out what is wrong with me.

I have had more blood drawn than I even thought possible, even with a blood clot. I have found out that I am gluten intolerant (still waiting on a Celiac’s diagnosis) and deficient in a whole host of vitamins due in part to this intolerance.

Without further ado, I’m going to start eating for my health, for my life

I am giving up-

1) Gluten (According to Dr. Aukerman, all grains listed below contain gluten  on some level due to how they are now grown and produced)

  • Wheat, Barley Rye
  • Spelt
  • Quiona
  • Soy
  • Sorghum
  • Brown Rice (very limited quantities only)
  • Oats
  • Corn
  • Teff

2) Poultry (yes, poultry, because chickens ingest massive amounts of corn and are exposed to latex and ingest too many plant oils)

3) Avocados, Bananas, Celery, Figs and Kiwi (all contain a latex-like protein to aggravate the immune system)

4) Seeds, nuts, chips, flax, soy, chickpeas and humus (because they are saturated in plant oils, which are actually harmful for our bodies as they are produced today and ingested in mass quantities like we do)

I’m adding fish oil, calcium, magnesium, Vitamin D, B-75 and cinnamon to my diet immediately.

Dr. Aukerman believes all of my autoimmune problems, including the antiphospholipd syndrome can be cured by eating this way. It was the result of a culmination of years and years and years of bad food being eaten through no fault of my own, per say. The foods we eat – are taught to eat – are poison. I’ve already noticed a difference. I can’t tolerate pasta or soy. I know this by eliminating it for four days and then having some. It was like I got sucker-punched in my gut. It was immediate and it was violent. No more. After those experiences, I can’t afford not to try this.

What are your thoughts? Let’s hear them in the comments below!

I know there is a God because so far all of my hot sauces are safe (don’t worry, those were the first things I checked). Giving up chickpeas just might kill me, though.

Until the next mile marker,
