Serious question.. did anyone else’s body just start rejecting food as they got older or after multiple c-sections maybe? Pretty much everything besides vegetables makes me sick and it’s been this way for over a year now (at least, I don’t remember when it started exactly).

A naturopath or functional medicine doctor can do food sensitivities testing on you and then you will know exactly what to avoid. Seems like as you get older, maybe the more sensitive you become. You just are used to living with the gut issues when you are young but then become more intolerant. I used to drink tons of milk as a child but I also always was blowing my nose. As an adult..no milk-no runny nose. I used to eat pasta and bread and would put up with the bloating and gas but now come to discover gluten is not my friend.

Yes! There are some weird anti-science NDs out there but there are ALSO some great folks who are ready to take you seriously and help you troubleshoot as a team (friend is an ND and ran into some truly problematic people even in school, but is conscientious and science-focused). It might be a journey, but not feeling like trash every day is so much nicer.

No but I kinda wish my body would reject more of the garbage I eat.

I had that happen not after C sections but illness which required prolonged use of antibiotics. I was very slowly able to get my system back to normal - over 3 years. I started with cutting out all processed foods, cooking all my meals and keeping the foods simple. I also introduced one vegetable or any other food item a day and watched how my body reacted to it and noted it in a food diary. This way I learnt to avoid nightshades, black beans, red kidney beans, corn and some cheeses. After my body returned to normal I was slowly able to reintroduce all the foods that I cut out but even now I have those in rather small quantities.

I have been dreading the idea of doing the whole food journal and cut everything out then reintroduce thing.. it just sounds like a horrible time lol but I might have to at this point.
