    Hello everyone,
    I have just been reading in this forum for a long time and already incoporated a lot of Peats suggestions in my diet and lifestyle, but I need your help now.

    I always felt really tired and depressed, but that has already improved to a great extent. T
    he problem is I seem to have a hyperreactive gut. Of all the allowed Peat-foods I only tolerate milk, sugar and refined coconut oil. Fruits, coffee, citric acid in sodas and potatoes give me slight stomach ache and I disorientated, weak and really tired.
    I also tried aspirin and niacinamide, but those made it only worse..

    Should I go on an milk only diet to heal my gut?

    Are you doing the carrot salad daily? That might help heal your gut up faster. Also have you tried bone broths(cow feet, chicken feet/necks etc) for the gelatin? The gelatin is super healing for the gut. How about thyroid have you dabbled with that any? The lower our metabolism the more food allergies we have.

    Milk is a pretty good base so don't get too upset over that. :)

    Thanks for the quick reply, Charlie.
    I already tried the carrot salad. Sometimes it helps, but sometimes it makes things only worse. I also tried every source of gelatin without luck.

    I will try some thyroid supplementation.

    I think consistency is key with carrot salad. However what works for some doesn't work for others.

    Should I eat plain carrots? Or do you know a substitute for the vinegar and orange juice?

    Vinegar isn't a must. Coconut oil and carrot should work pretty good. Milk has some of the same things as orange juice. I have dropped orange juice for now.

    I have a lot of activated charcoal at home. Would this also help healing my gut?
    And wouldn't I miss some Vitamins with only Milk, Cheese and sometimes shellish and liver?

    Depending on how "clean" the charcoal is, that could be a source of problems to. I use charcoal a couple times a week at most. It will definitely help by taking a burden off the liver.

    A good way to know if you are missing any nutrients is to start tracking them in something like cronometer. Vitamin K will most likely be low.

    I just did a carrot salad with some coconut oil and milk. Now I feel really tired. Could tjat be an allergic reaction or the downregulation of my stress hormones?

    Carrot salad has been known to lower blood sugar. So I always have a little bit of Mexican Coke with it.

    Wow. I didn't know that.
    So I will have some plain sugar with it (can't tolerate Mexi Coke).

    Some people complain about problem with Aspirin. I got lot of benefits
    from using Niacinamide 100 mg twice a day with food. I use GNC niacinamide.
    May be the excipients in niacinamide causing problem for some.
    If you can digest a large amount of dairy products then you can get away with avoiding
    fruits,coffee, acid and potatoes. Dairy and fruits can be an ideal diet.
    But it is not easy to find good quality well ripened fruits. I am on a milk
    based diet now with good results. RP often cites a study of fat free diet of William Brown.
    I have been following a similar diet with whole milk and lot of honey,sugar and
    coconut oil. Raw carrot salad has been very beneficial.
    I drink 1 quart regular milk, 1 quart of milk reduced to 1-2 cups and
    farmer's cheese from 1 quart of milk. I daily eat 1-1.5 oz liver to compensate
    for vitamins and minerals. I use a lot of instant coffee for
    anti-oxidant, magnesium, potassium and niacin.
    I think you can make a good diet based on dairy. Just make sure
    you are getting all your required nutrients using cronometer.
    Here is a description of William Brown's diet and his health benefits.

    Hello again,
    I finally got rid of my food allergies and would like to share with you how I did it. I experimented with niacinamide for a while, but somehow it made things only worse and I developed an milk intolerance for a while. (I used niacinamide from pure bulk...I assume it is pretty pure)

    Well, although I had bad experiences with Aspirin, I started experimenting with it again. This time I made sure to always dissolve the aspirin in hot water and to take it with a meal. I started with a dose of 50 mg and started building up from there.

    After about two weeks I realized that the citric acid in gummy bears didn't bother me anymore. I always gave me a weird feeling in my stomach, but not anymore. So I tried orange juice and it was suddenly okay.

    Repeated use of aspirin protects the stomach against very strong irritants. - Ray Peat
