That website is always popping interesting articles, a lot of it is sometimes not so great, but there can be some very interesting stuff regardless.
All I can say for sure, is that since I've stopped consuming:
->many sources of sugar (although, I do continue to consume raw honey, raw syrup, dark chocolate [85%+ /organic only] and raw fruits)
->eliminating many flours (that is the 'gluten -"a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and related grain species" [wikipedia]- free' element, not a specific allergy necessarily as I am allergic to wheat, but definitely a sensitivity and boy did eliminating the glutens sure finally help with a bit of weight loss)
->along with having gone dairy free (I do eats eggs once or twice a week, in some form).
Such has made a bigger impact than any other possible thing I've tried as well as, and/or, done for all of my health conditions, including especially the Cataplexy.
There's always sorts of trade-offs, give and/or take, but paying attention and giving things time, as well as devotion; fine tuning, narrowing in, is possible.
In my mind I used to think, well as long as I get exercise and keep myself moving, I can't be harmed; even though the entire time I was suffering and not, so, well whatsoever.
Allergies run deep in one side of my family, it took me a long time to realize they were causing me a lot of havoc; taking measures on the allergy end, helped a lot as well, yet in different ways and mainly with headaches, in a part. Such has involved:
->juggling what I eat (durka durka)
->keeping windows shut
->not hanging clothes to dry outside
->keeping the cats out of my room
->using on an occasion, after being very exposed outside or whatever to elements I'm allergic to (pollens, grasses, dust/s, etc..) a netipot (and never do I use it a lot, more in summer but no more than a couple times a month perhaps)
->washing my hair / showering and changing clothes, as well, after being very exposed (again, hiking or whatever activity within/around the elements).
Since my parents recall that I'd sort of daze/stare off and stop reacting to being, while, tickled as an infant, along with the fact that I can very specifically remember as a child, that when tickled in my belly, my arms would go entirely limp and I could not react to stop the tickling; such is to say, I'm 98% sure that I've had the N w/ C since basically birth or perhaps since the entire ordeal with my Pancreas (Severe Hyperinsulinemia Hypoglycemia which caused severe seizures) that I went through around 2 to 4 months old, which also involved 5 years of aftermath/medications and such. Not to mention (which I know you Ferret are one to hear) the amount of antibiotics fed to me over so many ear infections, dental matters and whatever other so-called prevention-al measures; for years now I've avoided such, yet there are occasions still of course. It's hard, quite impossible, for me to point in any single direction; yet the foods definitely play into 'broad things'...
Ferret, I hear ya and am with ya.
