should I wait longer to do the elimination? (give guts more healing time)
should I fast (I would do a juice fast, not a complete fast) to cleanse first?
how long should I keep the super simple diet before re-introducing foods?
any other thoughts you might have?

For gluten it should be a several months period (say 3).
For dairy, I would say 3 weeks are enough.
For fruits/vegetables even less time will show improved health condition if they were making you ill.
As for when should you start reintroducing new foods, this is definitely the hardest and most individual-specific thing. Definitely you should let some full weeks pass, weeks during which you had no relapse, no digestive trouble.

I have been blessed with a facility for fasting, which seems to speed up the healing process, so I would stop fancy foods, eating only meat. fruits, and vegetables, for about 3 days, then start introducing one food at a time and see what happened.
The results took only 15 minutes to know if I was allergic to a certain food or not. I would begin wheezing with Asthma, but you all might have a rash, a tightness in your chest, uncomfortable feelings of irritation, etc.
It was imperative for me to read each and every label diligently, and know exactly what I was putting into my mouth. Then I could trace any symptom back to the source of the problem. Simplicity seems to be the key.
Good luck! Welda

you sure have a lot of foods to watch out for! thnk you for your response. It is becoming more and more clear that I need to suck it up and eat really simple. My sister (also celiac, though less rigorous than I) fed me something the other day, and I got totally "high." Dumb as a box, turned bright red and pounding heart. sort of exciting, but I don't think I want to repeat that too much. Maybe tomatoes?
does that sound like an allergy?
