Another year on and she's still smiling

Posted on February 11, 2017 at 5:15 AM

It's the end of Feeding Tube Awareness Week 2017 which means another year has passed since Bella had her feeding tube removed (nearly 2 years ago now). For us this week is also a time to reflect on our time with the tube, what we have been through and think about how far we've come since. We still have absolutely no regrets whatsoever about having had the feeding tube or the timing that we got it removed. (We did about a year ago wonder if we had made the wrong decision by getting it out when we did as she has been touch and go with failure to thrive at times).

So how are we traveling these days? Bella still drinks her elemental formula twice a day (morning and night). This supplements her food intake which alone will not meet nutrition and vitamin needs. This is due to her multiple anaphylaxis allergies (milk, egg, fish, chicken) and her EoE triggers (wheat, soy, peanut, corn) and many food aversions. Due to her current medications that have been helping keep her EoE symptoms more under control she is currently trialling some corn (as an ingredient at this stage, not whole corn products). That has opened a few exciting new food options for her and we’ve also seen a huge increase in recent times in the quantity and variety of allergy friendly foods available! A massive difference that is for sure to what it was like 12 years ago when we began on this journey.

An ongoing battle for us and one that we have tried to get help with again last year but have had to put on hold until she is ready is that she most likely also has Avoidant / Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID). It never used to have a name for it when she was younger!

But for now, we are celebrating the steps we’ve taken already and are thankful that she still has her Cheerleading to guarantee a smile on her face!

Trying To Find The Best Diet Pill?

Trying to find the best diet pill may seem like an impossible task, especially with the multitude of diet pills available for purchase. Many people purchase a diet pill only to find out that the pill makes them feel jittery, nervous, or often has no effect at all.

Diet pills frequently contain the same or similar combination of ingredients and rarely contain anything new, innovative, or undiscovered to the supplement / weight loss industry. So, how can you find the best diet pill when most diet pills are made with similar ingredients?

One of the most common problems associated with taking diet pills is that the person taking the diet pill is uneducated about the dosage, effects, and promises offered as they relate to each diet pill. The research at website finds that there are three factors that should be taken into consideration when deciding to take a diet pill.

Dosage:
It is important to take the pill exactly as recommended on the product label. Some people choose to increase the dosage thinking that the product will work faster or better. This is not the case, and many people become sick in response to the large dose. Reviewers at website often suggest that the recommended dosage be cut in half to give the body time to adjust to the stimulant in the diet pill. After the body has adjusted, it is fine to begin taking the regular dosage as recommended on the product label.

Effects:
The effects listed on the product label are there because these are the effects that the product has had on 'some' of the test group. Some of the diet pill testers may be fine taking the product, while others may have adverse effects. The diet pill companies print this information to educate the buyer as well as to protect themselves from lawsuits. The consumer needs to read the label and educate themselves before taking the product. Many people who are sensitive to caffeine are surprised when the diet pill makes them feel nervous or nauseous, but this information is likely printed on the product, so with a little research these affects can be avoided.

Promises:
If you read the fine print on product claims for diet pills and other weight loss supplements, you will see 'results not typical' printed very small somewhere where you are not expected to look. The diet pills advertised on television are responsible for some of the most outlandish claims. The results claimed in these advertisements are often unattainable within the given amount of time outlined in the ad. Don't expect to see results in two weeks like a lot of ads claim.

Wouldn't it be great if you could read reviews for diet pills from actual users of each diet pill? Diet Pill Reviews website has taken the trouble out of searching for the best diet pill. You can read reviews of over 150 of the most popular diet pills available.

OPTION TO Typical Synthetic Supplements Is Needed, Say Experts
Whole dietary supplements is a subject of worldwide interest currently. A profusion of proof has recently emerged suggesting that normal synthetic multivitamin supplements may be hazardous to your health. Goran Bjelakovic, a respected scientist from the School of Copenhagen, headed up an enormous meta-study that viewed the results of 67 placebo-controlled trials previously performed to look for the effects of vitamin and anti-oxidant supplements on durability. In the final end, the analysis mixed observations of 232 000 test topics. Through the use of such a big population sample, a study can become a lot more powerful with regards to spotting large-scale trends and overcoming individual bias.
The results of the analysis, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, were nothing significantly less than shocking. Taking a look at patients with diabetes, heart disease and lung cancers, as well as healthy, normal individuals, there was no apparent benefit to taking popular fractionated supplements like Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Supplement C, Selenium, or beta-Carotene. In fact, the results went in the opposite direction - there was an increased chance of loss of life (16 percent) among Vitamin A users, a 7 percent higher death rate amongst beta-Carotene users, and a 4 percent mortality upsurge in Vitamin E users. Beta-Carotene and Retinol, advertised as anti-carcinogenic agents, may promote lung malignancy. That is right - pills marketed as helping you towards a longer, healthier life are actually correlated with a speedier demise. This scholarly study used typical supplements on the marketplace created from synthetic vitamins.
To add insult to injury, a recent research published in the British Journal of Diet under the unimaginative title of "Ascorbic Acid Supplementation WILL NOT Attenuate Post-Exercise Muscle Soreness Following Muscle-Damaging Exercise But May Delay The HEALING PROCESS" indicated that supplementation with anti-oxidants from synthetic resources may reverse lots of the beneficial ramifications of physical training.
Now, this is not to say that vitamins or anti-oxidants are bad for you. Far from it - these supplements were created on the basis of solid science. Anti-oxidants are still thought to protect cells from the ravages of free radicals. The nagging problem, rather, is the basic proven fact that you can get those advantages from synthetic isolated compounds. Disease and the aging process are usually far more complicated than test-tube studies can take into account. Furthermore, the presssing problem of bioavailability can be an ever-present concern. Many typical synthetic supplements include large sums of the advertised vitamin, but lack the additional compounds had a need to ensure that their key elements are actually utilized by the body. Passing through the digestive system right, these 'miracle health cures' often find yourself doing little beyond offering people expensive urine. To the rescue...Whole Food Supplements.
