What's Really Going On In Our Gi Tract?
0

8 posts in this topic

I've been wanting to start on probiotics which lead me to poking around in different research leading me to this page:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/19/magazine/say-hello-to-the-100-trillion-bacteria-that-make-up-your-microbiome.html?pagewanted=all&_r=1&

It is a very long read but packed with info about our guts. All very interesting and I just thought I would share, I feel like this is great research! Please give me your thoughts!

Yeah I thought it was very fascinating! I knew we had a lot going on in there and lots of tiny organisms at work but I liked this guys angle and how he related it to farming. Thank you both for reading, I know it was really long but was interesting enough to keep me reading.

that is really interesting, brandi - thanks.  although all the fecal implant references made me go 'ewwww'  lolz.  reminded me of something, too - my sister is a much better housekeeper than i (she also had half as many kids!  in my defense!) my house was always a little sticky and tracked up.  she sanitized/degermed everything and her kids were sick alllllll the time.  mine were hardly ever sick, which is kind of a miracle being as there were so many of them so twice as much exposure to everything and all kinds of opportunities to bring germs home to the family.   she also was a 'run to the doctor' at the drop of a hat while i (had no $$ haha) waited to see if their illness would go away on it's own <80% of the time it did.  they are still pretty germ resistant, i guess, they don't catch every little thing that comes around even as adults :)  good thing i'm a slob hahahahahahahaaaa   ^_^

I kinda grossed out on that part too lol!

I think your on the right track there, when I had my first son I was over board with Lysol and bleach everyday! He would get sick more than when I had my second son and I wasn't so on top of it they rarely get sick.... Plus they play outside more and I'm and organic gardener now too and they help a lot, always getting dirty. I do think we have to allow things into our systems for our bodies to gain a defense to them.

There is so potential in this research, I really enjoyed reading it!

Thanks Brandi, it's a real interesting article for sure.  It reminds me of certain kids wanting to eat dirt.  I wonder if they somehow know it is good for them?  After all, everybody loves a little mud pie right?  :)

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
