Hi. I'm new here and see that this community hasn't had posts in a little while so I'm hoping this is still an active group.
I have a number of chronic health problems that I am trying to manage as much as possible through diet. I will need some prescription medications and doctor monitoring for the rest of my life, but would really like to learn as much as possible about natural ways of healing, and hopefully be able to cut back on the supplements and medications I'm taking at some point.
My current diet is a vegan elimination diet to determine food intolerances. I have added back a number of foods successfully but am still somewhat limited, particularly in the spice and flavorings department. I'm aiming for 1400-1600 calories per day since I also have a need to lose some weight. I'd like to know how to optimize my nutrition keeping these considerations in mind.
Do you have any resources you could direct me to? Even if you don't please feel free to comment. Doing so will help me to get a sense for whether this continues to be an active community. Thanks.
