Amazon Discussion: Progress Update, Regaining Normalcy

section of Amazon's PepZin GI)

Trevor asked:
So glad to hear you are doing better! Im stuck on the same struggle... Just
wondering if you are able to occasionally have coffee and alcohol again? The
though of enjoying those again is the only thing keeping me from dying through
this whole struggle! Thanks!

Hi Trevor

Sorry for the long delay in replying, I must have missed the comment
notification email.

I am still doing very well, and am continuously reintroducing foods into my
diet. Recently, I've been adding more turkey and chicken (which the little bit
of sat. fat in them used to bother me) with good results.

I'm still at about 85% healed, so I haven't even tried caffeine/coffee/chocolate
and alcohol. I do expect to be able to drink alcohol again, and to have heavily
caffeinated foods like coffee and chocolate, but I'm taking it slow with those -
since for me they were like "patient zero" (they caused my stomach problems in
the first place). I have progressed to the point where i stopped taking the
Pepzin GI since I didn't seem to need it anymore (pain free, I don't have acid
reflux, and my gastritis seems to be subsiding). It was a huge help in getting
me to this point though.

My biggest challenge now is digesting normal foods. It's like someone that's
been a vegan for 2 years and then eats a steak - it's not going to end well !
Haha. The body turns off production of certain enzymes if you haven't used them
in a while, and foods that I haven't had in a long time my body isn't used to. It is progressing though.

I'll likely try alcohol in a couple months, and see how I feel as to whether or
not I have anything caffeinated.

It's worth noting if u like the taste of coffee, def try decaf. Removing
caffeine will make the coffee much easier on your stomach (although it might not
make it completely painfree, as coffee is acidic).

Sleep well, eats cleanly and without foods that irritate you, and God will get
you there ! You really learn to appreciate tasty food when you're eating blandly
for a long time Lol.
