I found only two things that would help coat my gut:  oodles of yogurt to soothe and comfort it :)  and neat scotch to shock the h*ll out of it and beat it into submission :ph34r:  (but not both at the same time!)

....... before celiac, did you ever expect to find yourself using that phrase in conversation? nope, me neither.  :lol:

( and auto-correct check mangled it, I see) Dang computers.

 

Ha Ha, not really IH.  :)  Then again, I never would of thot I would spend a lot of time on a site where people discuss their bowel habits every day either.  Such an interesting and inspirational subject after all! :D

OK, now Shroomie, you could try some Marshmallow root or some okra some time instead.  Marshmallow and Scotch straight up might work.  If you put enough Marshmallow or psyilliujm husks in your Scotch you could prolly make Scotch jello from them.  Sounds very soothing to me! :)

 

Or Vodka could work too.  Tater vodka of course.  Certainly can help with falling asleep at night if you are hurting, that's for sure.

Nope, don't "do" taters.  Not even in wodka, just to be sure.  Go for the burn with scotch :D   Nothing like a good sear to seal in the juices.

Thank you all for your posts and your willingness to help.  It not only helps the person who started the thread, but those who go searching for answers- even for for years to come.

 

I just ate the ONLY bloody Altoid that isn't gluten free (just my luck) and was looking for ways to combat the reaction knowing that it's coming.  Maybe the wheat maltodextrin won't affect me so badly, but I have my doubts knowing that I glutened myself from hand sanitizer.  Looked into the charcoal capsules, but the drug store didn't have any.  I'll try that next time.  :wacko:

 

It's so good to be able to vent to people who truly understand.  My friend said "and that little thing will cause a reaction?"  I was thinking "OMG it was huge!!!"  It would be good to know how you're feeling today, Juanitahoy.  Hope that it's all good.

No, honestly,  I meant it in a good way ---and I hope she is okay with MY sense of humor, too :D .  Us "veterans" know that humor is healing :)

You guys are awesome! Thank you all for the great advice and humor! I loved it all!

I've been ok actually. A lot better than I expected. Not sure what curbed the effects, but I definitely wasn't slammed as hard as I expected with a reaction. Of course things are a little "off", but I guess I'm sort of used to that.

How interesting about the l-glutamine and charcoal! I will have to pick those up "to add to my arsenal" as my mom says. Also interesting idea about scotch! Mom did suggest a hot toddy... ( warm water or tea with lemon and scotch) and I laughed at her. Now thinking about it, that might be a great idea!

Thank you again, and I'm so glad that others seem to have found this useful to start their own "arsenals" for combating a reaction!

whisky, water, lemon. Best drink for the stomach, I've found. Bartenders usually look at me funny when I order it, but I know what I want, dang it!

I'm going to check into these charcoal capsules too. Is the idea that they soak up the crap that's trying to hurt you?

I've tried nettle tea a few times, but don't feel it makes a difference.

 

Anyway, glad you're not feeling too cruddy, Juanitaboy, and get better soon!

I cut and pasted this for you: :)

 

Activated charcoal can  absorb digestive gases, especially in the lower intestine, and thus help to relieve flatulence and gas pains. Activated charcoal may help to lower cholesterol by interfering with enterohepatic circulation of bile acids. It has been found to lower total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol.

Activated Charcoal is mostly used for:

  • Adsorbing digestive gases
  • Detoxification
  • Bloating and gas
  • Malodorous gas
  • High cholesterol

Activated Charcoal is known to be one of the finest natural absorbent agents and it is most commonly used to absorb digestive gas. Each particle in Activated Charcoal contains many small chambers and cavities that bind-up unwanted material or gas.

What is Activated Charcoal?
Activated charcoal is type of carbon made from wood, vegetables and other materials. It looks like a fine black powder. Activated charcoal is believed to have a large absorptive capacity, making it able to bind with unwanted substances and toxins in the gut.

 

 

 

These are the kind I buy:  Country Life (certified G F)
