Paragone & Gluten Free
0

6 posts in this topic

I've been gluten free for 4 mos. now to cure my terrible IBS. I didn't find it difficult because, growing up on the East Coast, I've been on a diet most of my life. I am now taking ParaGONE (advised by my chiropractor who suggested I go Gluten Free) in hopes of healing the IBS since I was once diagnosed with H-Pylori. Since I've been taking it have absolutely no energy and feel drained. Someone please tell me I'm not alone!

paragone  is to  remove  any parasites  from your  body. It is  usual   to feel  totally  drained  while  using  that product...and please  don't use  it  on a  regular  basis... I  would  suggest  digestive  enzymes  &  probiotics....

Were any tests done to see if you actually need this med? Colon cleanses can be dangerous for us. Were you tested for celiac before your chiro suggested you go gluten free? Have you seen any improvement since dropping gluten? It can take time to heal and some of us have additional intolerances with the most common being dairy and soy.

I've always thought that the term "syndrome" generally means that doctors don't know what is going on, so I wouldn't be satisfied with a diagnosis of IBS.

If you didn't have the H. pylori treated already, wouldn't an antibiotic be the proper medication rather than an anti-parasitic?

I think I remember reading something a long time ago about certain foods being good for battling H pylori, so perhaps in conjunction with the correct medication that could help you?

But I'd stop taking medical advice from a chiropractor. I'm all for taking into consideration natural or homeopathic remedies, but only if they are backed by science. If you don't have parasites, why are you taking an anti-parasitic!

    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday

      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.
