Q. could i be allergic to ice cream? I've been having stomach aches and diarrhea's lately. and it usually comes after eating ice cream. i love ice cream - it'll be a shame if I'll have to stop eating it...

Q. Do you think the sugar in the ice cream might have caused my fibromyalgia? I have had fibromyalgia for 14 years. For many years I ate lots of ice cream. Recently I have begun breaking out in a rash if I eat anything sweet. Do you know why sugar might cause me to break out? Do you think the sugar in the ice cream might have caused my fibromyalgia?

A. Yes, Even Bryers ice cream makes me hurt. I do much better if I avoid highly processed foods. Some nutritionals that I have found to be highly effective in keeping me pain free are:
calcium/magnesium
kelp
cod liver oil
flax seed oil
raw apple cider vinegar


Q. How does ice help a sprained ankle or other injury? While I exercise I often get sprain. I have seen many times that ice is used as a first aid for sprains. How does ice help a sprained ankle or other injury?

A. it does two helpful things- lower the pain (cold can do that) and prevent swelling. the swelling is a body normal reaction that protects the area that was injured. but we would like to avoid it because it'll strain us.
