Results for Gloria, Ph.D. Gilbere

I found this and it touches upon celiac disease too.

Leaky Gut Syndrome

I find it interesing the books people buy. Were as with Amazon you can see the other books that person also bought. And it appears there are a few new books addressing celiac disease hitting the book stores.

Also Gilbere has her own site and ou can read all the articles shes written and so on. It is really informative. I think what I like best about her books as opposed to other sis shes speaking from her own experience not just that of s medical professional its much easier to process.

I picked up the book last night I can't put it down. It is easy to read and fast with all the "LIGHT BULB MOMENTS" I've been having as I read, why I'm sick and how to fix it.

It's a really good book so far and well worth the time.

Explains the "rotation diet" I've been doing, and how to get the most of it, to turn this around.

I'll be back when I get finished. I only question the use of WHEY...?

Please put this one on your MUST READ LIST!

This is a terrific book. I haven't finished it yet. It is about a doctor who became ill. It explains the symptoms and what she did to get through the illness. She covers it all from the toxic effects of the drugs to the battle to recover from the immune system war to the challenge of socialization and "her foods". You can't help but relate to her!!

After reading I'm not sure this book is for all of us here.

She writes about WHEY & SOY being helpful. I am NOT of that mind set. I have found it to be the op·po·site. Google the words "Whey Allergy" and see.

In the book she writes about many illnesses but she [never] tells the reader what she was sick from.

One element that was true for me was the MCSS (multiple chemical sensitivity syndrome) as I look back it started for me in 94 with enviromental allergies following surgery in my 30s. And at that time was when I was doing all the colon cleanse and had taken a entirely holistic approach to my life. As I listed in my profile; I did everything other than hycolonics. And the author stands by that it, how it worked for her and goes into detail of the process of detoxing, colon irrigation, colon hydrotherapy, ememas and how helpful these treatments are.

I must confess back in 94 everyone was doing it -- I'm speaking of -- hydrotherapy colonics. My cousin's bestfriend (someone I knew) went and she passed out on the sidewalk in Manhattan following a hycolonic session. She was hospitalized for a week for dehydration. And since my hypersensitivity to everything (in life) I can't or couldn't get past that. ....And then life changed in a big way, the colon cleans and holistic approach I was doing had stopped and no longer had those luxuries with major stress over time by 2000-01 celiac disease grabbed a hold of me.

I do believe; there is many benefits to colon cleaning and some of what she writes about. At this stage for myself I'm reluctant without a professionals help to attempt hycolonics. And the author points that out to the reader.

She writes about glutamine, ginger, aloe, alfalfa, milk thistle, night shade veggies, enzymes digestive and systermic oral enzymes and PARASITES.

She believes in the rotation diet to help.

The best line in the book for me was... when encountering individuals who think [you are neurotic] and present more challanges to you - say to them, " I'M HAPPY YOU HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED SEVERE ALLERGIES, AND I HOPE YOU NEVER DO." I like it cause it makes all those people we meet, that raise their eyebrow at us, it shifts the thought to them, and gives them something to think of, themselves. I'm going to use it next time.

Has anyone else read the book? What do you think?

Or are doing any of these treatments?

I am trying to learn more about glutamine, the site says it helps celiac....not sure about whey....milk thistle( I bought some to help the liver-going to start back on that and the probiotics...I am dodging the night shades now...I was scanning Dr. Weil's book last night and he said he takes a sm. can of grapefuit juice with metamucile in the morning first thing and then again before retiring (I find fiber helps me too) I am going to keep the fiber up (even though I eat alot of salads, fruits and veggies)..a client gave me some fresh fish yesterday after church and as I was rinsing it I could smell something...he had marinated it in Italian dressing <_< so the best thing I know to say is "I only eat plain foods"... glutamine- that is what I want to know about....LL

Konsyl (original) is safe for celiacs, all it has is psyllium. That's the one my GI doc reccommends.

I looked up the ingredients in metamucile here they have artificial flavors thats http://www.grainprocessing.com/food/malinfo.html a big no no for us. They can hide many things that will make us sick. It has aspartame in it and also maltodextrin (contains corn) and is processed with grains. = CC It might be making you 'go' for another reason?

lindalee -- Yes, the author says :o chop sticks are used to pick your stool apart when inspecting it for parasite and etc... :o

I use Psyllium 100% no sugar (Konsyl) brand and Glucomannan Fiber (Bionutrients) if I am not juicing. I do not reccommend Metamucile ---I just think it is interesting he takes it twice a day.(a fiber). LL

    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Hi Everyone I am new here and wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing the same thing I am.  I was diagnosed positive for celiac in 2/2016 via biopsy from an endoscopy.  I was negative for blood work because I self-eliminated gluten 9 months prior; so I guess I had not antibodies register in my lab work.  Prior to 2/2016 I was having symptoms for almost an entire year.  Despite cutting out grains in general for 9 months, I would have a gluten attack at least once a month.  I have had a history of sinus, bronchial infection.  I remember as young as 17 getting sick but I always bounced back and was active in sports and working out.  But in the past year I developed the following symptoms - Sudden desire to pass out, nausea, headaches, heart palpitation, crashing exhaustion as if I was recuperating from the flu, wheezing in my chest. I was bounced around to an allergist at this and was told I was asthmatic and I had food sensitivities to dairy, nuts, corn or corn derivatives (including corn syrup) and grains.  so I cut everything out!  Despite cutting everything out I was still have episodes at least monthly, possibly cross contamination.  In April 2015 I traveled to the Carribean for 2 weeks,  I became very ill with a urinary tract infection, stomach bug and severe back pain with constant fever.  I was treated with antibiotics (Bactrim) for 10 days which did clear up the situation. I came home and dismissed everything to a coincidence.  Six weeks later the GI distress woke me up in the middle of night.  The pain was so excruciating that when I sat on the toilet thinking I had to go, I almost past out from the pain.  I lay myself down on the floor until it subsided.  The next day I contacted my primary and was immediately seen.  She referred me to a GI specialist but the appointment was not until August.  Then 2 weeks before my GI appointment they called and rescheduled for late September.  I saw him and by then I was feeling better; no epsides for almost 2 months.  So we did nothing.... boy did I talk to soon.  Immediately after the appointment I had an attack.  These were the symptoms: Nausea, crashing fatigue (as if I was hit with the flu), diarrhea, dizziness,, loss of appetite,  lower back pain, specifically in the middle; intestinal discomfort and body aches which lasted 10 days!! and abruptly disappeared, thank God.
      . I had to wait to see the GI until 1/2016.  Once I saw him he did labs which were all normal.  He checked my liver, kidney, pancreas, blood count which was all normal.  He also scheduled the endo/colonoscopy for end of 1/2016.  Speeding forward in time....since the Endo/Colonscopy procedures, I had attacks January through March which last 7-10 days each time.  I finally had a break for 2 months and today as I type this I am on day 6 of another episode.  What I wanted to see if anyone has experience the following.  For me each episode is getting worse with the following symptoms: Nausea (horrible), back pain on the left side both in the rib cage (the front and back) at times this pain also gravitates toward my left hip.  I also get diarrhea, bloating, intestinal distress, crashing fatigue and loss of appetite.  What really hits me hard is the rib cage pain that is in the front and back on my left side.  I will be seeing the GI doctor in August; but I am hoping to see him sooner Any input in reference to symptoms is appreciated.    
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Hi all  10 weeks ago i was diganoised with celiac with blood work and a endoscopy. I have had the worst 2 years of my life that started with blood being in my stool everyday. I have always suffered with anxiety for as long as I can remember but I always just pushed trough it. I then I started having panic attacks, insomnia and major depression that I could not handle, I could not function, I lost my job because I could not leave my bed, I shaked as I lay in bed everyday uncontrollably. I met with a doctor who put me on lexapro (antidepressant) I finally gave in after 6 months and started taking them, they made me worst than I already was so I had to stop after 14 weeks. Fast forward to 15 months later and the symptoms still persists including the bloody stools, I was in and out of hospital every week and told I had all sorts of conditions, then the blood work and endoscopy Finaly discovered the celiac. I have been on the diet now for 10 weeks, the first week my anxiety went away, the horrible knot in my stomach that I have had everyday, the hot flushes, the tingling I had run trough my legs. This all left but only for a couple of days then it came back, the depression also lifted but has now came back, I have been more than strict with the diet, I check everything twice before I eat it, me and the misses have thrown away everything from our kitchen and replaced it with new things. I had my Vitiam levels checked and I'm deficient in b12, Vit D, all B vitiams. It's like one step Foward 2 steps back in tearms of healing, I know these anxiety / depression feelings are not me but I've had them for so long that I can't seem to see light at the end of the tunnel. The couple of days that they left me when incredible I felt human and alive. Just wondering if any of this has happened to anyone else with celiac or gluten intorlance. Any advice or hope In tearms of healing or am I to feel like this for the rest of my life (I'm 28) by the way. Thanks a lot   
    • So I've been glutened....
      That sounds like a plan JMG.  If things aren't working then make a change, hopefully a positive change.  It seems to me we have more noticeable symptoms sometimes after being gluten-free a while.  I made a mistake last night and ate some tuna canned in water.  It definitely wasn't boring.  I usually have more sense than to eat tuna canned in water but screwed up last night.  They canned  it in broth of some sort.  Ingredients say vegetable broth and soy.  Yuck, not good for me.  It sure tasted good though, just ouch.  I am not saying it had gluten in it, but it does have soy and some kind of unnamed veggie monsters.  So it could be soy, or carrots or some other disgusting vegetable that got me.   Not all celiacs have additional food intolerances beyond gluten, but some do.  My gut could testify to that.  Anyway, if you have bloating, cut out all carbs and sugar for starters.  And try peppermint tea or Altoids.  Over here we have something called Pepto Bismol that helps soothe gut pain and another neat thing called aspirin.  And gluten-free beer as needed.  
    • Gluten free apparently not helping entirely
      Jean, Maybe your boss can find you a job in the office for a while?  It's worth asking maybe? It's not easy being on constant travel with celiac disease but it can be done.  Your effort to find safe food is going to be harder than most but it is not impossible.  But if you can't manage it you should really think about getting a non-travel job.  Your boss may be willing to work with you on an office position, even if it's temporary.  That would give you some time to look for a local job and also eat a safer diet. It's really up to you to control your diet and make sure it is safe.  If you can't figure out how to  do that while traveling you owe it to yourself to figure a way out of the travel. Celiac disease isn't always fun and games.  Not always.   I hope you find a way to improve your circumstances.
    • Gluten Free baby food pouches?
      Anyone know of any baby food pouches that are gluten free?  We love to have them on the go for our kids (not just baby), but I have no idea which ones to get now!  We used to get Meijer brand and Plum.   Thanks!

      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.
