Gluten And Caesin Intolerant
0

5 posts in this topic

Hello, I went to Dr. Stephanie Cave (alternative med) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana about 2 yrs ago. My results showed that I am intolerant to gluten and caesin. Life was pretty hectic and I did nothing about my new findings. I would love to learn how to get on this diet. I know it sounds like gloom and doom, but, honestly, if this lifts the anxiety/depression/adhd at all, I am game. Scared to get my hopes up and miserable at the same time. I'm choosing to try. Anyone? Ty, Robin

I have, but, not all of the time, IBS and Acid Reflux. I've tried every med for anxiety and depression, each makes me feel worse or does nothing at all. I just feel jittery and uneasy, never quite satisified, moody, I get irritated easily. After being diagnosed wrongly for a few years, my sister was finally correctly diagnosed with Crohns. I want to feel better so badly. Anyone here from Louisiana? Any feedback would make me feel better. I'll at least know someone has heard me, ty, Robin

My way of getting a handle on my diet is to stick to chicken/turkey, beef, vegetables including potatoes, nuts, eggs, goat cheese and little else. It's a bit like Atkins but including potatoes, and without the heavy fats/dairy. Or like South Beach without the dairy. I'd suggest you read both those diet books for ideas. Generally I have eggs for breakfast, chicken or beef and side dishes for lunch and dinner. Snacks are a banana, nuts, maybe a Larabar.

My doctors suggest I avoid any grains at all, including rices and pseudograins, soy, sugars, dairy, pork... So I eat very few things - but it's still a guessing game at times. Today I tried a goat milk yogurt, and I think the sugars got me. I'm blown up like a balloon. However, I rarely ever get the IBS cramps and nastiness I had before I went gluten free.

I was on antidepressants for awhile, but I don't think they helped. I went off cold turkey, which was a BIG mistake, messed up my brain chemistry and I was wonked out for a couple months.

hth somehow? Lori

I had been dx'd as allergic to dairy and wheat from a diet test as an infant, but only off them for a few months. I went gluten and casien free in November, and i've been amazed at the difference. Within a week, 90% of my intestinal symptoms were gone. About 6 weeks in to it, I realized i hadnt taken exedrin in a month, and it used to be 3-4 times each week. My depression and anxiety started to ease about 2 months in to the diet.

So expect great things . . but be patient. There are worse things . . . i'm now on a diet so restrictive I can only eat 25 foods . . so you surely can do this! You can even find vegan chocolate if you look hard!

Good luck

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
    • DaVinci's Pizza has several gluten-free items great gluten-free pizza (well done suggested) and they don't have anything with gluten that goes in the fryer, so wing and fries are great all salad dressing made in house and gluten-free.  Owners mom has Celiac so they're very empathetic. Cheers. And enjoy. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had an issue. And if someone just touches bread then prepares my food its all over for me 6-8 hrs of reaction for me. Also Jimmy Johns @ 17th and Peachtree Street also great just tellm'to change glove and ask for the paper to be placed on the sandwich board before they make it. Also never had an issue but I have only had the Italian style lettuce wrap.
