Saludos, I have been advised by my Integrative Medicine doctor to eliminate all nightshades from my diet which is extremely difficult but helps a lot. No potato, chile, tomato, eggplant, etc. Also, he prescribed Omega 3 (fish oil) 4,000 mg a day, and 3,000 mg of tumeric a day (take with black pepper). For 2 years on this elimination diet, I definitely earned some relief! However, I have not been following this diet for the last couple of months. I just could not let another growing season pass without locally grown fresh tomatos and fresh roasted green chile from the Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico! The dominant cultural cuisine along with a new job cooking for a young Indian family their traditional dishes heavy on the nightshades, tomatos, eggplant, chiles, potatos, curries. I am paying dearly . . . I spent most of the weekend in bed in extreme pain all over my whole body, mouth sores, gastric distress, foreign objects in the eye sensation, even an ear ache! I am resolved to clean up my diet again starting today. As, the only thing I can control in this life, is what I put into my mouth.
