Herbal Remedies For Gf Diet Stomach Aches

5 posts in this topic


does anyone have any recomendations for herbal remedies they use to treat stomach aches. i have been gluten-free for a year now but still even when i know i am careful have very bad stomach aches.

i avoid not only wheat and dairy but also foods like baked beans too many green veg but i still get this dull ache.

a friend of mine uses aloe vera from forever living products but i find that not only does it taste awrful but it just has a laxativ affect.

any one got any ideas? i find that going to a regular doctor with these problems is a waste of time as they just don't have the knowledge of what we go through.

thanks, nic.

My suggestion would be to keep a food/symptom diary to find out the cause of the stomach aches! B)

If you are absolutely gluten-free, you shouldn't be having them :( You do avoid barley, rye, and oats too, right?

Either you have another food intollerence or your getting hidden glutens from somewhere.... The stomach aches are a sign...

Did you know that just kissing a nonGF person can glutenate you? Are your make-ups and lotions gluten-free?

Sometimes I try activated charcoal capsules, but they don't really help much...

Please, work on finding out what the underlying cause is! That will help more than any remedy!!


gluten-free since 1-'98

thanks for all your suggestions.

i am completely gluten free including barley, oats and rye. i also can't eat any rice or rice noodles so as you can imagine going out for meals is a real hassel. i also find myself not telling people my problem becasue it really puts them off, especialy men!

i think too much fibre is my problem, but i am concerned about the dreaded colon cancer so not sure what to do about this one.

i'll try the peppermint and ginger teas and plenty of relaxation exercises!! and hopefully it will work.

thanks again, take care. nic.

    • Hi Sunshine, There is a program called a 504 plan that some schools will follow if you get one approved.  It helps the school identify proper ways to deal with a child's particular needs.  Probably it is helpful to have a 504 plan, but they may require a formal diagnosis for it.  I suggest you talk to the school and ask them about it.  Tell them the situation with the kid and about the stress he would need to go through to get diagnosed.  They may be willing to work with you without a formal diagnosis.   I am not saying you absolutely have to have a 504 plan for him.  School districts vary and some may be more accommodating than others.  A 504 plan may give you certain rights, but I  am no expert on them. The gluten challenge is 12 weeks of eating gluten for blood tests.  The payback for being formally diagnosed is questionable IMHO.  Treatment is the same regardless, eating gluten-free for life.  One thing to be aware of is that celiac disease has a genetic factor.  So he got the gene from one of the parents.  Anyone else in the family could have celiac develop at some point.  So testing every couple years for all family members is a good idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Thank you everyone. I appreciate all of the information and support.  I am feeling overwhelmed right now and it was really getting me down yesterday. I don't feel so hopeless now. 
    • Okay. I think I will start with an allergist and a dietitian. 
    • Yes, that list I posted includes stuff to look out for in your cosmetics as well, I think. Spices get contaminated often depending on brands, sources, and packaging plants, you have to find brands that are certified, I find Spicely Orangics works here. Supplement wise I am on a ton. I take combinations of Liquid Health Brand, Stress & Energy and Neurologic Support for B-Vitamins, I take Doctors Best Chelated Powdered Magnesium. I drink a bunch of almond milk and eat a lot of nuts, seeds, green leafy veggies, and a huge viarity of foods always having a mix to balance out my needs in vitamins (I studied alot an worked with a dietician to learn what contains what and find my balance). I found a IBS targeted probitotic from jarrow seems to work best with me and no bloat. List of other supplements if you want but with celiacs different people can get different deficiencies and you should probably talk to a dietician and see about having your own regiment built up. I just listed the common ones. I was thinking about this later on and after I got off the stuff for awhile I found myself randomly vomiting from some foods, none of the brain fog, numbness, Just throwing up. Ended up I developed intolerance to certain foods like egg yolks, soy, and a few others things. I also developed allergies to corn where I would just get sores in my mouth and digestive tact and run 99-102F Fevers when I ate anything contaminated with it. And a peanut allergy that caused me to distend and swell throwing up for hours and getting a rash later on. My different reactions to different foods made my dietician laugh at how odd my body is (we both did after talking for awhile) and my doctors found it interesting and kept on wanting to run more test.
    • I will cut dairy out immediately. I have eliminated most processed foods already. I do use a lot of spices. I read labels on everything. It is so overwhelming. Is there a good list of ingredients to look for in cosmetics, soaps, supplements... ? It has been recommended that I take a probiotic, calcium and vitamin D. Do you take supplements?
