Green Peppers Or Garlic
0

13 posts in this topic

Lately, I have noticed an unusual :unsure: reaction after I eat and it is usually after consuming green peppers or garlic. Don't know which of the two is the true culprit but was wondering if anyone else has issues with this. I have seen a couple of posts on :huh: night shades :huh: ?? but don't have true information. Any help or info appreciated :) -Jenny

omg jen- it has been an ongoing puzzle for me... sometimes garlic & bell peppers bother me, sometimes they dont... sometime dairy bothers me.. sometimes not... 90% of the time i have Fructose Malabsorption... and once in a blue moon i cant do sweet potatoes..

i think in a nutshell- with Celiac & GI-> our systems have been compromised, and untill completely healed- or maybe never- it MAY be hard to digest certain foods.

another good guide for me has been Dr. D'Adamo's Bloodtype & Genotype diets (****just make sure u do a 100% Gluten Free version of it)- but 95% of the guidelines for me as an O+ Nonsecretor & Gatherer genotype have correlated w/ my digestive issues. (ie: no pears,apple juice, orange juice,MOST grains, soy,dairy, etc)

good luck with your puzzle :)

You can try eliminating tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers and see if that helps. They are all nightshades. I can eat sweet potatoes ok, but nay regular potatoes are a problem.

Have you tried eliminating soy yet?

Could be either one or both. I tested pos. to green peppers and kiddo tested stronly pos. to garlic. Allergist said he has a patient who has an anaphalactic reaction to garlic :o Who knew such a thing was possible? With leaky guts we can end up allergic to almost anything. Good luck sorting it out.

The "blood type" diet is rubbish. That fellow is laughing his way to the bank. Notice how the most popular American foods are lined up with the most common American blood type, O.

The classic way to test is to eliminate both nightshades (all kinds of peppers, eggplant, potato, tomato, tomatillo) and onions and garlic (they're related) for two weeks. Then challenge one food at a time, in a very pure form, and with no other potential problem foods. Give a minimum of 3 days between challenges. If you eat a food both raw and cooked, test both as they can be different.

I met that blood type diet guy once while almost buying a car from him. He's a fool, don't put any faith into a thing he says as far as nutrition goes.

I have a coworker who has a serious problem with cooked whole garlic, but can do garlic powder/garlic salt without issues and ...

I find interesting correlations with my gluten-free definitely not-average-blood-type diet and results as a highly atopic individual...but I'm buying food anyway and the library is free in most countries, still. :)

I started noticing stomach problems with uncooked green peppers many years ago, long before any of my other symptoms came to the forefront. I put garlic in lots of foods and have never noticed anything that removing gluten didn't help (caveat - not cure, so far, but helped massively) but I'm still cautious about green peppers. Maybe cooked, it's not as problematic, but I can't speak to that since I don't like the way they taste cooked and rarely put them in anything I'm cooking. I used to add them as the last ingredient (so they wouldn't overcook) when I've made chili in the long past. They really stood out to me as a problematic food, and I have a highly varied diet and have eaten lots of things over the years, so I don't think it's crazy/weird/etc. to suspect them at all.

I also have recently been having spells(what I call them) I have been using garlic as I had heard it was good for the problems. I stopped green peppers and went to red which don't bother me as much. Tomatoes are somewhat of a problem. Any thoughts

You may well be sensitive to nightshades. How do do with eggplant and potatoes? Those are the other two major members of the nightshade family, along with chili peppers and paprika (and of course the peppers and tomatoes).

    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
    • So ok, I get the pain/bloating thing, but it still feels so crazy. But my god, I look 6 months preggers after dinner and 4 months the rest of the time. How long will this last?! I have not gained any weight but have to hide me belly now. I can hardly breath! Omg, that does take me back to pregnancy.  I had "acute marked focal duodenditis" a few weeks ago and an elevated DGP. the pain sometimes makes me seriously think I must be bleeding somewhere. It is actually worse then 3 weeks ago. Although many of the other glutening symptoms are finally vanishing. Even my mid and lower back is tender to touch. Sometimes it burns, aches or like someone is stabbing me in my side. My ribs hurt and everything is tender.  I am on protonix and fish oil. I have a prn for xanax which helps the pain (off market use for muscle relaxant).    I am fair skinned and notice a red under-the-skin discolored rash that comes and goes on my upper stomach. Sometimes it travels down one side. Not itchy. Almost like I can actually see the inflammation under my skin.  1) when will I stop looking knocked up?  2) Any other fair-skinned folks notice a purpleish-red rash on your bellies? It mostly goes away and comes back, which I tske to be a good sign.
