(I'm not sure I'm posting this correctly...) Hi Sarah, I'm so sorry to hear you are still feeling lousy. It can be soooo discouraging! It is important to check your shampoo, makeup and cosmetics. I was having problems and couldn't figure it out until I realized my shampoo had wheat in it. Also, many people with Celiac react to casein and/or soy. I just discovered a soy problem, and the only physical symptom it has in common with my celiac is that it triggers my asthma.I just felt awful all the time and very exhausted. Soy is in everything from chewing gum to mayonnaise. Grrr! Another place to look for problems might be if something you are eating is cross-contaminated. Gluten free grains can be grown in fields that were used for wheat, and millet or oatmeal might be grown near a wheat field or be processed on the same equipment or may travel in the same truck as non-gluten free grains. I also take Sun-Chlorella for energy and to remove the toxins from my body. I am very, very sensitive to wheat (and now soy) and I tolerate it very well. It keeps me from getting constipated and I do feel an increase in my energy. And no, they didn't pay me to say that The biggest thing is to be patient, to be careful, and to listen to your body. Try keeping a food journal to trace what you eat. It can teach you a lot that you may not see otherwise. It took me almost a year before I really felt better, and almost two years before I felt strong again. And remember, among the celiac symptoms are anxiety and depression. Take a deep breath, cry when you need to and send your body all the love you can. You'll heal-
VTAMK replied to Anianna's topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsThis list is very helpful, Thank you! I ate at a Red Lobster restaurant this summer and they provided a special menu that listed allergens in their foods. I was surprised to find that items like broccoli were not gluten-free because of the way they prepared it. I was thrilled, however to have a delicious wood-fired salmon steak and a green salad that did not make me sick!
