    Any thoughts on cabbage juice?


    • #17
      I wouldn't drink cabbage juice if you paid me - however I do eat cabbage regularly.

      If you crumble a ham stock cube with a little bit of water into a pan (I'm talking a tiny little bit), then put some chopped cabbage in and but on a high heat for a few mins - the cabbage softens and absorbs all the water and flavouring - makes it rather tasty. My GF is on weight watchers and someone suggested that there.

      I am a bit confused by the various diets suggested on here, some of them seem very unhealthy i.e. no carbs AND no dairy. However, as an experiment I am eliminating sugars and refined carbohydrates for a period and I'll see if that has any effect.

      Also, my doctor knowing nothing about Dysbiosis wasn't very reassuring, so didn't want to avoid all carbs, dairy and sugar after reading a post on this forum.

          So, I guess the general idea is to avoid sugar, eat veggies, berries, wholegrains and avoid dairy. Is that right? This is pretty much my diet, too, but I have seen no change whatsoever in my condition. The problem seems to be that different people are sensitive to different things, so it's hard to tell what diet one requires, and it takes time to try a bunch of different ones. I wish I could run a simulation.

            Could be foods high on the gycemic index - that release Glucose into your blood quickly could have an effect...this would include bananas, potatoes, White pasta n bread, etc.

            Just a thought and something I'm keeping an eye on.

            What is the Glycemic Index?

            Not all carbohydrate foods are created equal, in fact they behave quite differently in our bodies. The glycemic index or GI describes this difference by ranking carbohydrates according to their effect on our blood glucose levels. Choosing low GI carbs - the ones that produce only small fluctuations in our blood glucose and insulin levels - is the secret to long-term health reducing your risk of heart disease and diabetes and is the key to sustainable weight loss.

            What are the Benefits of the Glycemic Index?
            Eating a lot of high GI foods can be detrimental to your health because it pushes your body to extremes. This is especially true if you are overweight and sedentary. Switching to eating mainly low GI carbs that slowly trickle glucose into your blood stream keeps your energy levels balanced and means you will feel fuller for longer between meals.

              surprised you don't react to spelt. it isn't wheat/gluten free. i bought french meadow's spelt bread for years (wonderful, made with only water and organic spelt flour) and they finally retracted the "wheat free" claim.

                someone wrote this and I believe it is profoundly funny and true

                "Don't ask me why there is such a connection between my ass and my face but if I get a good daily bowel movement everyday my face seems to do fine."

                It's all about getting it in and out! No lingering around.

                Diet, Low Stress, Exercise, a good topical.....

                what else could one do?

                  I agree with the diet, low stress and exercise.. All these things means we are strengthening our immune system which I believe will help with Rosacea.
