Hi all, I have general itchy butt problem - it's even a slight but very itchy rash at the top part of my buttocks. This is such a bother and some things work sometimes and then they stop working and I have to try something else. It went away completely and then I unknowingly ate some glutenized food a couple weeks ago and now I'm dealing with it again. As for doctors telling you what it's from, they really don't know. The problem is gluten and likely an acculmulation of other things we eat that have become toxic through genetic modification - like gluten - the chemicals, additives, poisons, hormones and so many things we can't keep up with. The best we can do is eliminate the gluten and whatever else seems to be a problem; and read labels. It's really helpful to have a place like this to share these things, because other people don't get it and doctors honestly often don't either. We just have to experiement and support each other.
Hi, I just found this site and I'm so glad to see others discussing this problem. I eat so much and still I can't gain weight. I just hope I'm getting some nutrients at least. Has anyone started to gain and how long did it take. Why does it take so long? I feel so skinny and people think I have an eating disorder when I eat way more than I ever did before. Thanks everyone for sharing - it sure helps to have support. Stefie
