My Experiments

Entries in this blog

Ok for those of you who do not know me I travel a lot. So from time to time I accidentally ingest gluten in one form or another. For instance I found out today that [b] Sodium Starch Glycolate[/b] is technically gluten and can cause a full reaction in someone who is as sensitive to it as I am. Thanks to #glutenfreeinsc post I now know what I was getting in my diet that was causing a reaction.
So I've decided to start trying different things that can help me either get better faster once I ingest gluten or reduce the reaction if taken daily. Keep in mind that I am a little bit eccentric at times.

Tral 1: zGlutn by systemic formulas

I decided to eat a slice of bread and take 4 pills at the same time. I know this is insane but I wanted to know if it worked. So I ate the bread during lunch and told my boss that If i didn't make it into work the next day I was probably dead...

The next two hours: a little cloudy feeling but not very severe. And no GI issues.

That evening: Kept working and didn't feel very cloudy but had to pace myself. I was a little tired but still no severe reaction

Went home and went to bed after a light dinner. My stomach was growling a bit but no pain and no noticeable diarrhea or nausea. This was a surprise to me since I always feel very sick, get stuck in the bathroom and can't think straight after I get gluten. I also get a rash around my mouth. I know that's gross but you understand my plight.

Next Morning:
a little bit of a hot feeling in my stomach but nothing too bad. I felt a little bit cloudy but still functional. Worked through the day no problem except for a two trips to the lavatory.

Conclusion: helped a ton. Wouldn't recommend trying this at home because it wasn't a cure but if you get gluten by accident it can reduce your symptoms dramatically. I've been taking it every day and it seems to be helping.

Has anyone else tried this product? I got it from a nutritionist.

if anyone has a product that works for them as vitamin I want to try it. apparently ciliact is terrible.
I'll keep trying supplements and diets and keep you guys updated.
