Hi. My BF is a celiac and was dignoised about two years ago though he had it all his life. I have been trying to find out as much as possible about it to help make his life eaiser. He knows what to eat and not to eat but things still happen and mistakes happen.

I know there is no treatment other than a gluten-free diet but surely someone somewhere found someway to help cope with the mistakes. While nothing is proven, does anyone know anything that can ease the pain and help it move through the system faster? He has found a few cups of yerbal mate tea helps to ease some of the symptons. Anyone have any other suggestions?

Hi Littlewolf,

Everyone experiences different reactions. Mine are vomiting and horrible diarrhea for hours on end. I get severly dehydrated, bad enough that I've ended up in the hospital. What my doctors give me now is anti-nasuea meds, which help on a, almost, daily basis. When I have my reaction, it like the worst case of the flu that you can ever think of, so I try to relax myself with the heating pad on my stomach and then my husband makes me peppermint tea. After all the "activity" I then drink vitamin water to regain my strength. For all of my episodes, I have out of work for a solid week.

So what do I do? I am so careful thank goodness I haven't had one of those experiences in a while. I just say to myself, if I am in doubt do WITHOUT!

I hope this helps you a little. Have a great day!

Linda :)

Littlewolf:
When I have cramping pains, bloating and gas, drinking lots of strong peppermint tea, doing yoga or pilates positions to 'push the gas through', walking or just drinking lots of warm water helps resolve my painful symptoms. ;) To cope psychologically, doing gluten/casein/soy 'sleuthing' to determine the food culprit for my symptoms really helps me feel more in control of an out of control situation (those awfully painful symptoms). :o Besides just riding out the symptoms as best I can, I want to do whatever I can to prevent a recurrence. So I try to track the ingrediant in whatever I ate which was responsible for my symptoms. <_<

Waya (my BF) gets very bad stomach pains, dizziness, diarrhea and mood swings and tends to have them for a few days at varying degrees. He is very careful about what he eats (even things that say ‘natural flavors’ he will pass up, of course, he’s better at it than me) but a few nights ago some gluten must have gotten into his food when we went out. It was a meal he had ordered before without problems, maybe they changed the recipe, I’m not sure. It’s off the list now. <_<

Maybe I will try to stock up some peppermint tea and give him a heating pad. Being a “normal” person I don’t have to worry about as much as he does, but, I want to try to help him as much as possible. :D

Papaya in any form is supposed to help.
