For those of you without symptoms of lyme, in remission, if you will, and took antibiotics... Have you ever been able to eat carbs again? Bread mostly?

I make my own breads, desserts, doughs, etc. I miss sharing these with the family. I hope to one day be able to enjoy them again.

Never had problems before enjoying those foods, daily, 2 meals a day. Or should I just start getting used to eating only meats and vegetables for the rest of my days? [dizzy]

**on a separate note, I just noticed the two smiley faces getting sick on each other. what is with that!??! LOL**

Yes, I eat carbs. I ate carbs when I was sick, too, but not sugar.

I hate that emoji that you mentioned. If people post it in a thread, I won't go to that thread to answer.

My experience is I do better with low carb, no sugar and no grains all the time. Whether in remission or in treatment ( back to treatment now) it brings me up several notches.

It's one of the steps in the ladder that make a huge difference for me.

The problem with the carb grains are that they are all high in manganese. From bread onwards. Lyme thrives on manganese. Milk conversely has virtually no manganese and I have made massive progress on an intermittant milk only diet for a few weeks.

Thanks everyone for your responses. Honestly, I can't believe anyone would even think of developing that emoji! [Smile]

Your information was quite helpful. I never knew that about the manganese. It that just naturally occurring in the grains, Chris?

Gluten comes to mind. A new film explains a lot that may be going on, and see other links here, too.

Gluten?

I don't have a sensitivity to gluten, but will look at the information just so I can be more informed. Thank you Keebler.

I was curious to know if all those that took antibiotics ended up having a bad gut afterwards and therefore could no longer eat grains or sugars (even like honey or maple syrup).

Mrsfarmer, I haven't taken much antibiotics, but always had a bad gut anyway.

Mine was full of candida, that was the main reason I try to avoid antibiotics...

I no longer have lyme, and I do eat carbs, but not much gluten (I always try to avoid it).

I only know gluten does something to me, because when I avoid it, for a month or so, and start it again, I feel clearly the difference in digestion: it feels heavy, I hear noises in my gut...

My daughter had gluten allergy, then it disappeared, then she started eating it again. She stopped by chance, for a week, and realized she felt better. Much better.

one clear thing that happened is that she had no more muscle pain after sports, and had much longer stamina than just a week before stopping gluten.

Then she decided to stop it, and I realized, she stopped catching bugs in school (she was always catching colds in the last year). That stopped abruptly after stopping gluten.

So, she's still in gluten free diet, as much as she can. About a month ago, she ate it again, during a trip, almost every day. Not in great amounts, but she did.

Today, she's at home again, with a bug (fever).

Well...

As for carbs, I never stopped them, or I feel awful. I just lowered the amount, while increasing green leaves, so that I do not crave much carbs this way....

I hope this helps you decide what to do!

Congrats about lyme!!! I hope it remains gone!

Thanks Brussels for the information. Very interesting on what happened with your daughter.

Unfortunately, not done with lyme yet. [Frown] I was just wondering as I worry about antibiotics at times and didn't know if I should switch to an herbal route.

I still need to look into it more. [Smile]

Follow your gut!!

Dr. K. is saying that long term abx is not helping anyone any longer. He's for short term, only after acute infection.

Buhner the same: when he says he's not against antibiotics, he does NOT mean long term abx, but short term abx.

I thought you were lyme free (due to thread title!).

Yep, my daughter has had problems with gluten or wheat her whole life, literally. It started at 10 months of age, and she's now 13!

The fact that gluten CLEARLY weakens her immune system was the weirdest thing we noticed recently.

I guess for her, she must be totally off, if she wants to remain healthy. I wonder if gluten does not weaken most people, and that is why gluten-free is claimed to help most lyme sufferers...

I wish you good luck in deciding what to do long term. Remember that the Bb bacteria is everywhere, in flies, mosquitoes...

So always treat this infection, but also think about the immune system!
