like you i react to a lot of meds, vitamins are like little devils that make me SICK. but the meds have 'saved my life' on a few occasions (pericarditis etc)
you mentioned you are in a flare - what symptoms are you having?
Angel, reference food, I'm gluterin intolerant, so I'm down to a few dozen foods; basically organic veggies (bok choy, spinach, leeks, pearl onions, romaine lettuce, rice, tapioca bread, occasional potatoes; rice fruit (apples/grapefruit/peach) pancakes; millet, seeds, pinenuts, and a few more, but sooooooooo sick of veggies. I occasionally have shrimp/seabass.
My flare was caused by eating, drinking things outside of my box. Ended up "Overstimulated" to the point of being majorily "on fire"; sweating; unbearable body achies; too weak to walk; sick to stomach (I have gastritis, leaky gut, etc.). Finally surrendered to taking some Protonix to get on top of my stomach problem & will take that until I can eat normally again, and have stopped everything else I was taking, which were mostly natural symptom relievers.........homeopathics.
Under a great deal of personal stress, so that has worsened everything.
Don't have these unless I "cheat". No "fun" in this program.
