Here is my new discovery.
Last night I went to my friend’s house and her family had some wine. Nice pink color, she told me it tasted good so I had some. It was a sparkling wine. Very sweet. As soon as I had my first sip I knew I am going to have a heartburn but nothing happened. I went to bed and in the middle of the night I woke up with burning pain in my throat. I thought that if someone would stick a flame to my breath it would burst in flames, like a dragon. I took immediately my acid reflux medicine but that didn’t help. Two hours into the ordeal, my throat was still burning. Finally, I went to the kitchen and got 2 slices of salami, small slice, maybe 1 oz of Gouda cheese and I started eating. And... just 1 minute later everything calmed down. I went back to sleep and slept until morning.
What do you think about it?
Here is more. Few years ago I was waking up with my eyes shut. The doctor diagnosed me with blepharitis and said there is no cure. I had this shut eye problem every 4-6 weeks. The pain, redness, discomfort was horrible and usually lasted 5-7 days. One day I was in Solvang (CA) and my eye was still hurting but I was wearing sunglasses so I didn’t care how I looked and there was a wine testing in one of the restaurants. I just got a little sip of wine and almost instantly the pain in my eye stopped. I went from table to table sipping wine. My eye recovered but during recovery I had absolutely no pain in it.
Then of course few weeks later I woke up with shut eye again. So I went to the store and bought a bottle of a cheap wine and started drinking. After having 1 oz. of wine the pain disappeared. And at night when I was sleeping there was no pain. Something in that wine causes pain to go away.
Eventually, I discovered eye gel and that helped until my daughter’s diet cured it permanently. But I used wine for any pain that I ever had. After gym workout, headaches, no matter what the pain, wine was always helping me with it. Many people with ms have pain, I think they should try it. It doesn’t take a lot but once you open a bottle of wine you should finish it in 2 days because it turns later into vinegar-like taste. There are very small bottles – 8 oz. so I was buying those but for the past 2 months I haven’t bought even one bottle of wine and I have absolutely no pain.
To be precise, I had no pain or discomfort of any kind since I started adding fat to our diet. Remember the broths? Meat, cheese, butter, beacon? We eat it all. The entire summer I haven’t gone to the gym and last week when my daughter went back to school, I went back to the gym. But I have not had any muscle pain what-so-ever!!! When I exercise I feel the muscles a little but when I don’t, there is no pain. And last night the salami/cheese fat killed my acid and the throat pain!!!
Get it? Fat = no pain!!! Just like wine = no pain!!! Can someone please try this? I think the fat is what controls inflammation and pain in the body. And this is probably why my daughter feels so good. The fat that she eats throughout the day keeps her body perfectly tuned. Can you imagine fat as a cure? I can, I think this is what we are experiencing right now.
How about the Mediterranean diet? I spend 2 years in Greece when I was younger and they start with an appetizer which is fresh bread dipped in olive oil and feta cheese. That’s where I had my first spinach pie. This is what makes them healthy. Olives and the oil dip. No pain, no inflammation = better health.
