In honour of Invisible Illness Awareness Week and starting a new diet (that will hopefully cure some stuff!) here is a look at how having a chronic illness can affect your diet. Currently my diet is completely starch free but fingers crossed that will be changing soon!

I’m sure someone has asked this before, so I’m sorry for being redundant, but did your family consider/try to sue the hospital you were at when your LP went wrong? From what you’ve explained from the videos I have seen, it doesn’t seem your entire disability has stemmed from that LP mishap, but it definitely caused you some delay in healing and other issues. Just curious! I’m not sure how “suing a health system” works where you live, but it definitely happens here in the US frequently.

Your diet sounds very similar to the diet I'm on: the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), which is for people who have a digestive disease. Of the foods you listed, the SCD diet allows bananas as long as they are ripe. Ripe bananas aren't as starchy as green bananas.

Oh my goodness! I couldn’t imagine have that many restrictions! I can not have gluten and large amounts of any protein, and I have to eat consistently throughout the day. I get the what do you eat question and you’re always eating questions and comments all the time. You handle things with so much grace! Haha That’s why I love watching your videos!

C.albicans is the type of yeast in the body, especially in the Female reproductive organ. It is also known by another name: Baker's Yeast. And yes when the balance of of the bodu is disrupted the bacteria normally symbiotic in nature with the human body can actually become too much, like with a yeast infection: C.albicans growing too much in the female reproductive organs.[Microbiology]

Lol I’m allergic to all of that and a bit more. Like wheat , soy, other certain fruits and veg etc. I tried vegan but literally everything was wheat and soy. Now I take 5 different meds before I eat so affects are not as bad.

Omg I thought my diet was extreme but this is a new level! It can be tough talking to people about it and making new friends cos some people just think you're being stupid but as it makes us ill, they should be more understanding. I cant eat grains either but I basically live on root vegetables to compensate as otherwise I'd die of hunger! I've never heard of the starch issue, that must be so hard and restrictive❤️

I'm sorry to say that candida is a sort of catch-all diagnosis from hollistic therapists, and there's no scientific backing to the claims that candida cause all these things, nor is there any that eating a certain diet will kill candida which is the direct cause of these symptoms. I'm sorry you've had some poor experiences with doctors, but unqualified hollistic practitioners are not a suitable alternative.

Does this also name your email ?

Every person who visits a holistic nutritionist is diagnosed with candida. It's almost definitely something else, theyre sued all the time for this stuff.

Did they ever test you for sucrase isomaltase deficiency? My daughter has it, it's rare, but she can't have sugar or starch because she doesn't make the enzymes to digest it

Relate to this quite a lot, i tell people that i have a lot of things i can't eat, and then i have to go through a huge list, gluten, root vegetables (not potatoes for some reason) apples, legumes, garlic, cauliflower, etc. And everyone is just horrified by the thought.

I know this video is super old now but my mom put our entire family on the candida diet when I was in junior high and we all got considerably healthier afterward.

Candida. All hollistic doctors try to blame all the problems on that.... If something is listed to cure more than 3 things, it's straight up fraud. Please educate yourself on this.

If there is an overgrowth of Candida in your gut, doctors typically recommend antibiotics, as dietary changes don't typically help (unless the candida is exacerbating conditions such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn's Disease). I don't trust holistic doctors in the least. When you recommend someone take vitamins and eat fruit to cure cancer, you've lost me. Candida exists in everyone's body. In their mouth, gut, and especially the nether regions. It is impossible to do away with it completely, as it is part of everyone's internal ecosystem. Take anything a holistic dietitian says with a grain of salt.

I love watching your videos, they are relatable, educational and entertaining. I love the video you sign because I am learning ASL and BSL is so different. I’ve learned so many things from watching you and I hope to become fluent in both forms of Sign Language one day.

Bucherviews . 11 months ago

Wow, it's been ages since I've watched your old videos (probably was near enough when you first posted it :P) and it's amazing to me how much better you look now that you've sorted out your diet stuff! Now you've put on a bit more weight and you've got so much more energy, and it really makes a difference - odd to see videos with you like this again! (I think you're also now more comfortable in front of a camera, which is another difference XD)

I'm a type 1 Diabetic, I kind of get the sugar free thing. We're not in the same boat but I get how it can be to have a "restricted" diet

I’m the same way with my food. I have such a long list of foods I can’t eat and it includes almost all the same as yours does. It’s actually really interesting to know that someone else has the same restrictions I do. 💗

Did you ever think of a fecal transplant? Sounds gross, I know, but it can be quite helpful for folks with less than optimal gut microbiomes. And you are my new favorite channel! Stay awesome.

snake meat doesn't contain starch or sugar i think

WOW, I can't believe I ran across this video! You're beautiful and I love watching your videos! I have so many allergies that I almost have the same list you do. No root vegetables (nothing that grows below ground) any types of tree nuts, MSG, egg whites, wheat, soy, dairy (casein, I'm NOT lactose intolerant, those get confused) no food colorings, and a TON of anything that has a pit growing in it, wheat noodles make me pass out. I have more but I have found out I also have a pesticide/miracle grow allergy. I can NOT have tap water, I get heartburn from tap water, I can only drink spring water from certain places. No white foods as well, it's insane! Bless your heart, thank you for posting this! I had my allergies crop up unexpectedly, sometimes I cheat, and get sick, but I make sure it's on a day/evening I can take the time off to be "sick" or yucky feeling. I feel for you! You're so awesome, and thank you for posting! I wish I could get my doctors up here to test me for yeast infections, they want to give me more pills for gastric mucosal atrophy, terminal ileitis, multiple allergy syndrome (plus many other issues) Send your doctor to me please! haha! *INTERNET HUGS!!!*


Ahnket . 1 year ago

I know how it is to be unable to eat tons of stuff too. I've got a condition called Hereditary Fructose Intolerance and that makes me unable to eat/drink quite a lot as well. It's something I'm used to since I was born with it, but it's kinda weird for social settings with people I don't know very well. Some people don't even believe that I can't eat quite a lot of vegetables or let alone sugar.

I know this is a super old video but I found it hilarious that there was an advertisement for dominos before the video talking about your starch free diet. It was very ironic in my eyes. I understand having to have a very specialized diet, I'm unable to eat very weirdly specific things. Like I can eat chicken and fish but I cant eat any red meats. I cant eat bananas for some reason but I can eat breads and potatoes with ease. The human body is very odd.

Hi Jessica! I'm an ICU nurse in NYC and I love all your videos! I know its odd, but have you heard of fecal transplants? We do them very often for those who have had their gut microbiomes wiped from infection, medication, etc. Just curious if this is an option for you or if it is an avenue you've looked down! Best wishes! <3

I contracted bacterial meningitis 8 years ago and being on the vancomycin IV antibiotics for so long to save my life from that unfortunately gave me the same side effects as you. Two months to the day I got out of the the hospital i was back in there with bleeding ulcers and fevers which turned out to be Crohn's disease. In the 8 since that is 1 of 4 autoimmune disorders i have been diagnosed with. Also the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is just brutal! I actually haven't been able to back to work since I left that awful day. I choose to say "Why not Me" instead of "Why Me" everyone has their issues, some 32 yr old mother's of 2 get told they have terminal brain cancer. Some children never know what it's like to drink clean water. So this is what I was given, I am thankful it is my cross to bare and not someone I loves. I am thankful though chronic it isn't terminal. I give my self a few pity party days on the really hard ones, but for the most part this mindset gets me through. Peace and love to you and yours!

I love your channel. Thank you for spreading your lovely attitude and face. I had so many stomach issues my whole life. Always tired, dealing with weight and my stomach always hurting. I would get dizzy from picking something up off the floor and life revolved around the toilet. Doctors told me to eat more yogurt and you're not diabetic. . . . 🤨thanks😑 My sister actually went to a holistic doctor trained in both Eastern n Western medicine ideals. She understood Western medicine's "there's the problem, fix the problem" ideals. She then took to Eastern ways of thought on the whole body and combined the two. Anyway my sister called me while reading a book and just told me to listen. I don't know how to describe the feeling I got when listening to my sister. . . Terror. I was scared to hear what I was hearing because this book was telling me things I felt that I had never told anyone. It gave me this weird sense of being watched. I don't know why. It then morphed into a "wow, something might change, someone might know how this feels". It's been almost nine years that I have followed a special diet. I don't get dizzy anymore. My life does not revolve around a bathroom, which is very important to me because fishing n hiking are my favorite things to do. I have more energy and feel healthier. I can't eat chicken, tomatoes or most grains among other things but I wouldn't change it for the world. Thank you for your stories and continuous message of love n hope.

I'm on a very similar diet (the Wahls Protocol) because I have Multiple Sclerosis. My diet is also tailored to help build and maintain a healthy gut biome. I've definitely gotten better since I started. Not perfect, but better.
