What to expect when "detoxifying"

As many of you know, I have been posting for some time regarding my almost complete cessation of RLS symptoms as a result of following a low oxalate diet. I have just come across the website, lowoxalate.info, posted by Susan Costen Owens, Research Associate, Husson Science Research Institute in 2006...

Re: Another year of relief

About 6 years ago I made some changes in my diet in the hope of increasing my general energy level. I experienced some abatement of my chronic leg discomfort. For the next 5 years I kept a diary of virtually everything I ate and how I felt each day. My intention was to see if I could find a causal r...

Another year of relief

Now that I have achieved more than a year of virtually complete relief from RLS I continue to believe that following a diet low in oxalic acid has made the difference for me. I offer the following guidelines in the hope that they may help others. My primary vegetables have been broccoli, cauliflower...

Re: I hope I have it right this time . . .

Thank you both for your suggestions. It is interesting that phytic acid poses similar issues as oxalic acid in terms of interfering with mineral absorption. While I have been generally avoiding nuts and whole grains (wheat and rice) I have been having steel cut oats for breakfast most days, and very...

Re: I hope I have it right this time . . .

Today I read most of the posts on this website concerning the Wahl’s Diet thread. I also listened to Dr. Wahl’s TED talk. I am in awe of what she has achieved. And the dedication that some of you have displayed to this promising prospect. It also made realize that I must sound like an idiot. Here I ...

I hope I have it right this time . . .

Friends, I have continued to keep a diary of my eating and my reactions to various foods. I think I have come up with a deeper insight into our affliction. Allow me to share my latest conclusions and a brief account of how I connected the dots. 1-My previous post on this website that certain goitrog...

I can switch it on and off . . .

Almost a year ago I reported here that I have achieved virtually complete relief from RLS by avoiding goitrogenic foods, those foods which inhibit thyroid function. Because my relief after many years of suffering has become complete and absolute, I really hope that others can experience the same suc...

Another year, another breakthrough . . .

As I reported about a year ago, I have had almost complete relief from RLS by following the Blood Type Diet as developed by Dr. Peter d'Adamo. I would sometimes have occasional flare ups of RLS, but they were minor and short lived. I attributed these episodes to certain foods which I thought I shoul...

Update on my cure

Over a year ago I reported a complete cessation of all RLS symptoms within 3 days as a result of my following Dr. Peter d’Adamo’s blood type diet as explained in his book, Eat Right 4 Your Type . Since that time my general health has continued to improve. My previously elevated cholesterol level has...

Knowing what I know now, I would skip the broccoli and just use the Blood Type Diet as described in Peter D'Adamo's "Live Right For Your Type". I believe this diet cured me in three days.

A complete cure that makes sense . . .

Some months ago I reported almost complete alleviation of my RLS symptoms by eating four ounces of raw broccoli for breakfast with oil and vinegar dressing. In order to achieve the desired result, in addition to eating the broccoli, I had to consume at least one glass of red wine every 24 hours and ...

One more thing

Betty/WV, To answer your question: In recent years my suffering has been almost constant. I had taken to reading the morning newspaper walking around. I got a laptop computer so I could work standing up, at least some of the time. The only days I had some relief were those I was more physically acti...

TEST RESULTS

Well, I tried switching to white wine with my evening meal and using red wine vinegar (only 1 teaspoon) on the broccoli. My symptoms returned within a couple of days. A little red wine in the evening and I was back to "normal". Two days ago I switched back to the white wine with supper, bu...

A new lesson about broccoli

Recently I made a post on this discussion board about the miraculous relief from RLS symptoms which I have achieved by eating raw broccoli. In that post I shared that, by daily eating 4 ounces of raw broccoli with 1 tsp. of vinegar and 3 tsp. of olive oil, I have been able to achieve complete relief...

Thank you for the kind words, bekull. I have had another thought about the results I have been getting. I always consume some fat along with the broccoli. I have read that some beneficial chemicals in plants can only be assimilated if they are consumed along with fats. I don't know if this applies t...
