gluten-free Destination Wedding
0

8 posts in this topic

Hello fellow gluten-free-ers!

My boyfriend and I have been talking about a destination wedding and we have settled on Thailand, India or Sri Lanka. I know a lot about all the cuisines but I was wondering if, by chance, anyone else has planned or been to a wedding in those countries or knows of any place in those countries that offer gluten-free-ness. We'd like a resort but are open to anything. We don't care if it's by the beach or not....

Thanks much!

I would do it at the Taj West End in Bangalore. Having traveled the globe for 30 years that is my favorite hotel (outside of the Big Island that is) There are a number of other Taj places that are really nice too but the staff at the West End is fantastic. The staff is excellent at gluten Free preparation and made me anything to order. The only other place I would consider but have not done would be the first class train tours which are rather expensive. I'm told they are excellent and something thats on my bucket list.

I've been sick every one of a dozen times in Thailand so I tend to avoid staying there for more than a few days on some project.

Thank you both!

We have been ALLLL over the world, we travel for a living and these are the few countries we haven't been to. We have done 90% of Greece so that's out. And we are looking further into the Bangalore Hotel. Thanks and please keep the info coming! :)

I've been pretty much everywhere as either a photo journalist and then as a researcher on tropical fruit.

Outside of here in Hawaii India would be my first choice in the tropics and Japan would be 1st choice for anywhere else followed by Germany. The Taj West end grounds are beautiful and there are a number of day trips

The F&B Manager at the Taj is Vinod Pandey -- GM is Arindam Kunar. Director of Sales and just a great lad y is Divya Prabhakar -- she can fix anything in India!

good luck

    • Thank you cyclinglady! We'll just keep pushing forward and we'll get things figured out one way or another. You have been most helpful and informative and given me some great resources and things to consider. I really appreciate it! I definitely feel better as I've felt like a crazy mom lately thinking through the test results and everything. Even if it turns out to not be celiac or gluten related, at least I can say we did our due diligence and looked under every rock to find the source of his troubles. Thanks again!  Take care! 
    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy. View the full article
    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.
