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

    • Thank you so much guys. Reading that last response and those from forum members who seemed to be mind-bogglingly sensitive to gluten at times helps me feel like less of a freak  Perhaps worse than the symptoms themselves was my fear that I'm the only person on earth who has gone through this and that if it continues, I will end up with all of my friends and family washing their hands of me because it would look to them like I'm the only one with this and so I must be crazy. It's really good to hear that the sensitivity can go down too. I've been holding onto this idea through the tough times, reminding myself that I also had really bad hayfever for a few years, and asthma at a different time and they both got better.  It has been a whole month since I had a bad reaction to gluten. It has also been two weeks since I even had a small reaction and I'm feeling SO much better. I'm still going to take every precaution I can but this feels worlds away from how it was. At my most risk averse, I had a day on holiday where I only ate bananas and avocados because I could eat them without them having been touched by human hands, even my own! (This was straight after getting sicker and sicker and hunting down what it was that made me ill. I found the refill bottles of soap in the house where I was staying and read that they had wheat in them - not an airborne reaction I imagine but when I washed my hands to prepare food it was probably contaminating my food. Plus because I didn't speak the language, I couldn't be sure the new soap I bought was gluten free.) Now, I am still avoiding environments with lots of gluten and staying clear of all grains, with the exception of rice which I reintroduced using the food challenge method as directed by my dietician (since I understand that rice is, according to Dr Fasano, the lowest risk of gluten contamination of all the grains) and I am building my weight back up. My husband has been able to see also that the last time he cooked gluten in the house was the last time I got ill. So it is reassuring for him to see that the sacrifice he is making is making such a difference to me. I also took the advice about new cooking utensils - thanks! I have my fingers crossed for me. I want this better health to continue but right now I'm happy to know that there is a break in the clouds and to know that I can feel like me again. Good luck to everyone, sensitive or not, who gets into a bad place with managing their reactions. Hang on in there!        
    • I'm not sure I just had the endoscopy, and I've had a  songram. 
    • Thanks and I'm seeing a doctor in three months may have to make it sooner.    Thanks for all the replies.
    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol
