I don't think it's too early to say that I'm stunned at the
disappearance of my 15 years of scabs. It's been just 2 weeks since I
stopped eating the stuff that has acrylamides in and my elbows are
smooth now, even the redness is gone. The area on my shins that
doesn't even change much in the summer is still affected but it is
relenting. Other small areas are gone too.

I read this posting after my yearly fast and I saw a macrobiotic
counselor that helped me with a diet minus acrylamides.

This is nuts! It's like I'm using some special, magic cream or
something but all I'm doing different is eating differently. (Oh, I 'm
also popping some vitamin D as cycleguy suggests, but I've done that
before without results)

I'm going to continue and I'll post what happens in the next month or so.

Thanks so much stirlingstrauss.

Tim,

Can you give us a run down on all foods you discontinued?

Grilled cheese on wheat and french toast obviously are out.

And do you eat any non fried wheat products? And if so
how long till flaring?

My fasting routine lasts 6 days. I don't eat anything for 3 days. I
drink distilled water (because I read somewhere that it's ionized and so
it attracts toxins that get flushed out. (?)) and if I feel weak a sip
of apple juice will perk me up, But I don't usually need it. On the
fourth day I have a bowl of soup. A simple one like miso. And the next
day, soup and rice. The next day soup, rice, vegetables. The thing
about fasting is how you come out of it. Slowly, gradually. Then I
also eat homemade sauerkraut or you need to re-establish the good
bacteria in your stomach with, like acidophilos.

I'm not a doctor or scientist but I've been doing this around winter
solstice for about 15 years and it gets more fun all the time with the
addition of yoga and meditation.

My psoriasis is still disappearing. The more intrenched areas are
getting pinkish.

I'm eliminating the acrylamides that are apparently formed when any
flour is heated. So I eat mostly rice, millet for grains. I've been a
vegetarian for about 30 years but I was advised to eat fish every day.
Even granola or cereal has acrylamides.
