How Eating Potatoes and Tomatoes can Damage the Body
How Eating Potatoes and
Tomatoes can Damage the Body
Lately, I have been
talking a lot about Nightshade foods and how they can affect certain people. I
wanted to delve deeper into this nightshade issues and talk a little about how
these are affecting people today. First what are nightshade foods? Well, we eat
many of these foods daily.
Here is a list of nightshade foods:
and hot peppers
All of these foods are classified as
nightshade foods. This group of foods contains alkaloids that can impact
nerve-muscle function and digestive functions in both animals and humans. Some
people may also suffer from joint issues that are associated with eating these
foods. Individuals that are especially sensitive to these substances will want
to avoid eating any of these foods. I am one of these people and so are my
children. I have been living with Hidradenitis Suppurativa
that was caused by me eating these alkaloids daily.
I can't believe the
change in my body from quitting eating of these foods. I no longer feed these
foods to my family either. My two sons are likely also to suffer from eating
these foods, so I am spending my time teaching them about the hazards are
eating such food. There is no cure for HS, and there are many treatments but it
will not go away. I have realized now avoiding the food is the cure to put HS
in remission. After learning more about these foods, I have learned that there
are several effects and diseases that are also caused by eating of these foods.
According to the
research done by Dr.
Childers, found that 74 – 90% of people who ache and hurt,
regardless of their diagnostic "label," have a sensitivity to
nightshades. Alkaloids can affect the
nervous system, joint health, cause eczema, IBS, nausea, dizziness, migraines,
Effect of alkaloids on the nervous system
alkaloids found in potato have been studied for their health effects on the
body. These alkaloids tend to block the activity of an enzyme called
cholinesterase. When cholinesterase is blocked, the nervous system control of
muscle movements becomes disrupted. This disruption can cause muscle twitching,
tremble, and paralyzed breathing that might result in convulsions.
Effect of alkaloids on joint health
damage joints by causing inflammation. Some researchers have found that eating
nightshades can lead to excessive loss of calcium from bone and cause excessive
depositing of calcium in soft tissues. Doctors are now recommending that people
who have osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other joint issues like gout
should not eat any of these foods.
tend to affect many in different ways. Eating these foods can cause an
inflammation response to happen within the body causing muscle spasms, chronic
pain, and stiffness. For many these will subside once the person quits eating
the food, but this may take up to three months to happen.
Want to know if eating these foods are negatively
impacting you? Take the three month challenge and see for yourself
Don't eat any of
these foods for the next three months. After the three months have lapsed you
can start adding back one of the nightshade foods and notice what happens. You
will know within 24 hours of eating the food if it is impacting you negatively.
Notice aches and pains in your body along with headaches, stiffness, stomach
aches, acne or boils, loss of energy, and respiratory problems. For many who
quit eating these foods will find that they already feel better, this is a
definite indicator that these foods were having a negative impact on your body.
It has been more
than 6-weeks since I have eaten these foods, and I no longer have bumps on my
scalp and the itchiness of my scalp has disappeared. I also don't have bouts of
acne like before, and I haven't seen a boil one show up on my body. I am hoping
to share this information with many people so they too can do something about
their own diet and start healing. Eating this food also leads to leaky gut that
I will cover in a whole other post.
