6 posts in this topic

Hey everyone!!!!!

Ezekiel bread..........the 2 most confusing words ever to someone with celiac. some people say its gluten free.....others not!!!!!! i personally dont know if i have celiac or gluten sensitivity b/c the docter gave us a hard time......for the test you have to have gluten in ur system.......but after we found out gluten made us sick.......we didnt want to eat it for the test and get sick..........so my mom didnt do the test but its obvious she has celiac.......when me and my sisters went to get tested.......the docters refused to test us because my mom didnt have a firm enough diagnosis.......but we think me and 1 of my sisters has the true celiac because gluten sensitivity is not hereditary but celiac is.....and since my mom has it....well you get the picture!

anyway back to ezekiel bread......i eat it....but when my sister ate it it gave her a rash....and once my mom got a wheat grass drink but it was sprouted wheat just like ezekiel bread so she thought she could handle it...she couldnt..........why can i have ezekiel bread and my family cant???

:huh:

Ummm....Gluten sensitivity is hereditary. There are other genes different from Celiac. But our parents most certainly pass them on to us.

We all respond to gluten differently. Some Celiacs have NO SYMPTOMS at all, but are damaging their bodies nonetheless.

If you have a gluten sensitivity or celiac disease, you should not eat ezekiel bread, it has gluten.

I have been eating Ezekial Bread for many years, being mildly allergic to wheat and gluten, and was happy to see that I could eat a "normal" bread without gastric symptoms. The large alternative medical center where I work has been recommending it for as many years as it has been in existence, because of the fact that SOME patients who are MILDLY wheat and gluten sensitive might be able to get away with eating a low sugar, flourless, SPROUTED grain bread without any deleterious effects. However, way back when, I do not believe that "organic wheat gluten" was in the list of ingredients, as it is today. Also, the bread seems to toast darker on the same setting as it used to, and seems to have a much more airy consistency. I don't think anyone at the center noticed the addition of the wheat gluten - I only did so this morning, while planning a healthier diet for myself. I will certainly be bringing this to the practitioners' attention, since the patients who were able to tolerate it before, might not be able to do so now, and may have been wondering why they have been feeling poorly. It is true that Food for Life Breads do have true wheat-free and gluten-free alternatives. However, I do hope that they will consider removing the added "organic wheat gluten" from their recipe, so that many thousands of folks can go back to using it again.

As many have said before, wheat, sprouted or not, contains gluten. Sprouted wheat is not safe for celiac patients. Apparently there is some kind of enzymatic process that reduces the amount of gluten, but the gluten is still there. The benefit of ezekiel bread is that it is more nutrient rich; however, this benefit won't do any of us with celiac disease any good.

    • 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.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
