What Do I Eat?

18 posts in this topic

MY STOMACH hurts... What do I eat? How do I eat so that things hurt less?

I know some things that came up not allergic on the last allergy test.

I can eat that. So my diet would be just fish.

I've eaten pears. WHAT is OK?

-Rice

-Jello(Kraft brand won't hide anything so I would get that brand)

-Mashed Potatoes and baked potatoes are good on the stomach too

-Also as celiac3270 mentioned chicken broth is good(Imagine has some good gluten free broths...they put gluten free right on the package)

-Yogurt is also supposed to be good(Yoplait is a really good brand..they are like a Kraft brand and will not hide anything either)

Also try enzymes and probiotics...those are great to help build your system back up..and pump yourself with vitamins too

Frustrated. Back to day one again.

I'm sitting at home hurting and not able to o to church. After the TV service, infomercial comes on telling me the "cure" for acid reflux (tablespoon of vinegar).

Like a dummy... I decide, well, why not try it?

I was going to do one pickle, but couldn't as it has corn syrup in it. So tried a teaspoon of vinegar.

Tomorrow I am going to be POOPING acid... I KNOW it.

What type of enzymes? My sister uses some for her daughter but has heard it is bad for celiacs. She says the broad based stuff would be ood but am not sure it is working.

I am going to the accupressure Dr Monday and am hoping she will give me good advice about vitamins, and foods.

I so want to get better. I just need to stop poisoning myself. =(

They are excellent for celiacs. Enzymes are extremely helpful for aiding with digestion and really helps your body break down food properly.

I use CompleteGest by Enzymatic Therapy

And if you are not on probiotics you definitely should be...they help fight off bad bacteria and boost your immune system. They do so much and are just a really good thing for your body.

Probiotics enzymes vitamins, have to write those down and ask tomorrow. What is the name of the probiotic?

Kaiti,

Are you somewhat normal feeling now? Do you still feel sick?

Have you heard of NAET? I have a Christian Accupressurist here who does accupressure to get rid of allergies. I have struggled to deal with the stereotypes of this field in Christian circles. Yet, if God is Jehovah Rapha (the God who heals) couldn't God use touch (and even Chinese medicine) to heal people?

My roommate in seminary was Chinese and she said their medicine is really good. But you have to pick and choose what is medicine and what is just "mysticism."

This accupressure person is a Reverend. I just still struggle with whether this is dabbling in something I shouldn't be.

I've been back to normal for quite a while now(except for when I am glutened)

I have been gluten free now for almost 17 months and I guess after the 6th month I was pretty much normal. Felt alot better after the 3rd month though

The probiotic I use is Kyo-Dophilus....even if you choose against this brand make sure you get one with a dark bottle that needs to be in the fridge. This helps keep the healthy bacteria alive. There should be quite a few options.

Can't say I have heard of the NAET.

If NAET works for me, I'll let EVERYONE know...

It isn;t covered by insurance but I have heard great things about it from 2 testimonials (Christian people I know). And my mom was told to make sure that I got a Dr. who knew what she was doing from several nurses she knows (they said it really works). This one specializes in allergies.

It is called National allergy elimination technique. You can find it on the web. It's a little strange but I think it would work even on people with food sensitivities as it is just working with touch and essentially neural pathways (that can be adjusted with touch). I will ask the Dr. to see if she thinks it would work.

It is worth every penny if it works. The first meetin is $145 and the half hour sessions after that are $65. I have already spent about $1000 on all of this. Maybe this will help stop the Dr. bills.

THANKS for telling me that there will finally be a time when I feel normal. I have bought a new crock pot because I was worried that the old one was contaminated to the point that I couldn't clean it (little scratches here and there).

Do you have allergies you are doing NAET for? This will not cure celiac...celiac is an autoimmune disorder and it is not an allergy and there is no cure for it. The only treatment is with the gluten free diet as of now.

I am allergic to wheat and corn. So yes, hopefully it will cure these allergies and I am hoping this hasn't gone into Celiac yet.

But I know that allergies can go into all kinds of nasty things and rotten bowels can cause all kinds of nasty things too. I looked up leaky bowel syndrome and WAS APALLED!!!

I am being tested for celiac right now. I will know by Wed.

I went through NAET for a while hoping to relieve some of my other allergies. I spent entirely too much money and it didn't work. I'm still allergic to antibiotics and hormones, nitrites and nitrates, and still very allergic to fragrances. The NAET practitioner tried to tell me it could cure celiac too. <_< personally don't believe it and haven't had any luck with it.

as far as what to eat, what are you NOT allergic to? Then go from there. Food in it's purest form is probably the best way to go, you know, as close to the way nature made it as possible. Start with very bland things like banana's, then add avocado's, apples, yams and potatoes... stuff like that. If your tummy can't handle it in the raw form, then boiling, mashing, baking etc, but avoid adding any fats or seasonings.

baked apples are really good, just wash them really good, put them whole in a pan lined with foil and bake at 350 for about an hour or until mushy.

Anyway, good luck. I know it's tough.

When my tummy hurts I eat very plain things, like gluten-free pasta with just the teeniest bit of butter, or a plain waffle with nothing on it.

Or, a plain piece of chicken. Stick to bland stuff.

If it's really, really bad I would stick to plain rice, bananas, apple sauce, gluten-free of course, and things like that.

We feel your pain! I hope you're better soon!

I can't have rice (allergic). I have stayed away from bananas becuas they have hurt my stomach in the past. Maybe I need to try it again.

WHY???? Why did I try that vinegar? I knew my system was acidic. Now I am hurting. I had about 1 hour with no acid this morning and thought, you know, it might have helped. Then I forgot to take prevacid before I ate. Hurting camper here.

Milk, milk, milk....

Are you on dairy still? Alot of celiacs have problems with dairy at first due to damage in the intestine. I had problems on and off my whole life with milk until going gluten-free now I have no problem with it. Could that be causing you a problem?

There are quite a few foods that you will be able to eat again when gluten-free for a while. You see when I was sick before I was gluten-free absolutely everything bothered my stomach..it didn't matter what. When you start the diet and start feeling better you will find that you can start adding in things. There may be other things you truly can't have though.

If I could think of a way to kill myself that looked like a total accident, I would at this point.

I don't know what to eat. The accupressure therapist told me I was allergic to everything. That's really nice to know. She did give me probiotics but said my body wasn't ready for vitamins or enzymes yet as they would kill my system even more than I was already hurting.

She was very strange. I don't know what to think.

I need prayer.

antmimi, do you have a Dr. that is extremely knowledgeable about celiac and food allergies? I hope so. I'm sure this NAET lady is well meaning, but celiac is not going to be cured by accupressure and and allergy elimination technique. I wish it was that simple. I'm also sure that it's possible this technique helps with allergies, but not celiac. Good luck.

Oh and please don't kill yourself! Your wanted around here at least! I'm sorry you are not feeling so good right now. A whole bunch of us can totally identify with you on that one.

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
