moogiemynes's Journal, 27 May 2018

Forgive me for not reading your posts, nor posting myself. I do care, but I was sick last week. "Sick" is a relative term. I could not see. Yep, I boo-booed. I ate something with both sugar and wheat in it, which caused me to temporarily lose my eyesight. I have been "clean" for about four days, so the veil is lifting. I sometimes refer to it as trying to see through a heavy lace curtain. If you are really interested, google "ocular neuritis". Twenty years ago, I refused chemical treatment due to known side effects and dubious profitability. Natural treatments, such as dietary changes, work much better and cost less.

So, rack up another benefit to the ketogenic lifestyle. Sugar makes all diseases worse. I cannot emphasize enough that we keto people should stick with unprocessed, natural, organic, grass-fed, wild-caught, and free-range food as much as possible! My senior center excels at this. They may not be perfect, but they do grow their own vegetables using organic methods. Plus, they list gardening under exercise. Gardening can be more strenuous than than the gym, and you get something out of it! I'm hoping to be able to drive by Thursday.

Wow! That's a new one to me. What an extreme reaction to sugar/wheat! Losing your eyesight would be an excellent reason to stay on the straight and narrow. I'm glad you're feeling better and hope that the veil lifts permanently.

I'm so sorry. That must be so scary. I'm glad you are improving. I can't afford the organic stuff but i figure the un-organic stuff is better than sugar.

Thanks, cjodyssey, you do what you can afford! Just stopping the processed food does wonders. Even people my age forgot how to cook from scratch, and that doing your own work saves a lot of money.

Thanks, SoCalPam! Diabetic neuropathy comes from high blood glucose, which comes from consuming excessive amounts of any kind of carbohydrates. The optic nerves are particularly sensitive to damage, and a lot of diabetics develop vision problems. MS also runs in my family, so pick one. I was diagnosed with MS in 2000, and diabetes in 2011. The ketogenic diet is helping with both.

Thanks, 8Patty. I believe God heals, plus the eyes are very sensitive to bg levels.
