I have noticed a routine in my nausea... Since I went gluten-free in May '09, I was fine...

I had a problem with dairy for a while, but it eased up.

I started getting nauseated again about 3-4 months ago (roughly) and haven't been able to make a connection... I eat a TON of dairy, but went DF for a while, and it didn't get better.

Lately, I have noticed that when I eat meat, I get sicker than I was before.. Not just one type of meat (IE: Turkey), but all meats. But today, my theory got even more of a push when I ate an egg for lunch.. It made me sicker...

I realized that it would explain why even eating Nothing but veggies (with Ranch Dressing) I still felt sick...

Maybe I have a problem with a meat protein...

Good GOD, does this mean I have to become a vegetarian?? I am really gonna cry now. :o :'( :ph34r:

I have voted no to this question, but have to qualify my answer - I cannot eat beef that has been fed corn/hormones/antibiotics - only organic, grass-fed beef. No problems with any other meat, including meat that contains nitrates/nitrites, and no problems with eggs.

Maybe I can try all organic meats.. It'll cost me an arm, a leg and probably my left nostril, but it is worth a shot!

I can eat meat but not eggs. I have a diagnosed (IgG mediated) allergy to eggs. I used to have difficulty digesting meat. Then I read a book entitled "Why Stomach Acid is Good for You" by Jonathon Wright, MD and went to his clinic to get a Heidelberg capsule test for stomach acid production. That test showed that I very slowly produced only a little stomach acid.

Without adequate stomach acid, we can't digest meats or fats very well and don't absorb vital vitamins and minerals, like calcium, magesium and B vitamins. Normal levels of stomach acid also kills food born bacteria, parasites and fungi (like candida). Age, autoimmune diseases (like celiac disease) and using acid blockers can all cause inadequate stomach acid production.

Since my diagnosis of hypochloridia I've taken HCl supplements before each meal and I can easily digest any meats or fats. I also stopped getting gastrointestinal (bacteria, parasites and candida) infections, after having 8 during the past 4 years. Best of all I no longer have bloating and flatulence and I feel more satisfied after each meal.

If you have ever used acid blocker drugs or you get indigestion after eating meats, try drinking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar dissolved in a little water before a meal with meat. If that improves your digestion, you might have inadequate stomach acid production. HOWEVER, I suggest you see a doc who can give you a Heidelberg capsule test for stomach acid production, before you try HCl supplements. If you used those while you have H. Pylori, achloridia or any damage to your stomach lining, you can seriously damage your stomach by using HCl supplements.

Before I was diagnosed and prescribed HCl capsules, I discovered that drinking ginger tea with meat/fat containing meals also helped digestion.

Like the poster above, I would say look into stomach acid.

I am a life-long vegatarian, I had a lot of continuing problems after going gluten-free so I went on an elimination diet. The dietician I saw wanted to make sure I wasn't reacting to dairy or soy, and I couldn't handle beans, so I agreed to eat meat for a while, specifically lamb and chicken. It made me sick to my stomach. Over time I found that I don't digest fats or proteins to well, even after I cut the meat out.

I tried a hcl and pepsin supplement recently. I had mixed success in that it did end up causing some minor d after a while, but the amazing thing is that I went from having absolutely no appetite for days at a time to a regular appetite. It was so suprising that I wasn't sure what the feeling was at first! It seemed to help my stomach to empty, where before food would just sit in there and feel heavy, give me reflux etc. I took the pills for about a week and then stopped, and I intend to restart at some point to see if it can kick start my appetite and protein digestion.

I wouldn't say that you have to go vegetarian necessarily, but it would be a good idea to keep a detailed food diary, and then simplify what you are eating. Maybe try cooking the meat very low fat in case that is part of the problem. Try eating one type of meat at a time for a few days, and see if there are any that you can digest better. I found out that I had a bad reaction to chicken and eggs, and the reactions ranged from immediate to 1-2 days later. Also try small portion sizes and see if that helps.

I voted no but I too have problems with some meats depending on their origin. Cc might be part of the problem as things got better after I started washing eggs well before putting them in the fridge (chicken eat wheat and lay eggs in straw) and washing all meat before cooking (to avoid cc from breaded stuff). For the same reason I stopped buying minced meat.

For some reason chicken fat makes me sick. I can only eat chicken when grilled until all the fat drips into the fire. Other animal fats are ok, though.

I have been meat-and-egg free for seven years. This is because they seriously and directly upset my female hormones. This includes, surprisingly, the organic and free-range animal products. Thought I

You might look at some of the RPAH Failsafe diet info if you seem to be reacting to all meat and eggs. There can be a lot of amines in meat and eggs and some people react. The solution is to find a source of very fresh meat.

I voted yes but I have a similar qualifier. I get violently ill after eating beef, it feels a bit like getting glutened but more painful and without the neuro symptoms. Seems like I really have to try grass-fed beef.

My meat issues are a combination of things, best we can tell:

1. antibiotic residue in meat that were given antibiotics. I have allergies to antibiotics, and since going gluten-free, I seem to react even more.

2. Gluten CC on poultry skin from the processing and on any meat that's been cut up at the supermarket butcher's. Some seafood is processed in facilities where it gets CC too. I've bought some big pieces of meat at the supermarket from the butcher that are still sealed from the slaughterhouse.

Some other things I've learned along the way, however?

1. I've met a number of sensitive celiacs who have problems with eggs from chickens who are fed gluten grains. Don't know why - seriously, no idea - but they seem to be okay with eggs from chickens that aren't fed this, if I remember correctly. So...who knows?

2. I've read stories from a couple people with corn issues who have a lot of problems with processed meat. Most meat in the States is typically washed with a mild bleach solution and since a few e. coli scares, they are often washed with citric acid, which is often derived from corn. I'm not sure what meat form other countries is washed with, but you might want to look into it?

      I am glad you are feeling so much better!  Your posting will encourage others.  Thank you!
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      When I first started this journey, roughly 11 yrs ago with symptoms, I had no clue. Eventually, having no luck with doctors (hypochondriac or psychosomatic), I googled my symptoms over and over looking for something... ANYTHING... that would give me a clue. Among other issues, my insides would not move, I was turning gray, felt like death, and had a persistent cough. I can't remember who but someone had posted on the forum and I found some of my symptoms. Eureka, I immediately began a gluten-free diet to see if it made any difference. Of course that was a journey, not realizing what products contained gluten. Long story shorter – first I went gluten-free, symptoms began to reappear, then it was soy (first organic was okay, then not), symptoms reappeared, took out corn, symptoms reappeared, then it was all grains. So the last couple of years I have been grain-free plus no sulphates. Actually, truth be told, my Celiac pharmacist gave me the recipe for health. I asked her if she liked a certain product. She answered, “I don't know, I have never tried it.” I asked her what she did use. She replied, “Nothing out of a box, a bag, or a bottle.” And that has pretty much been my life for the last couple of years. There is the odd product I try but it always has an after effect and I have to way the consequences against the enjoyment of it. I am one of those who react to 1 crumb in the butter, flour dust in the air, sulphates in anything, sometimes things that don't even seem like they would be a problem, like avocados and blueberries when I am contaminated. January 2016 I began this recitation. It is now May 5th, 2016 - Here I am 4 months later and I feel like screaming to anyone who will listen, “Things are improving!! My gut is healing!!” So what happened?? Someone suggested digestive enzymes. My insides were so compromised that I couldn't eat much besides fruit, veggies, and meat; all plain, all without being touched by people other than me. I could barely stand salt at times when I was compromised. Haven't been to a restaurant in years since I am not in a city that would have one to cater or understand this much of a problem. I started digestive enzymes but I read the label wrong and started with 5 first thing in the morning. Whatever... I began to notice improvements in what I could eat. Not anything different but just that I could eat without feeling ill or having my gut shut down. I stayed on those for a month and a half.. then I picked up a parasite from someone living in a very unclean apartment and visiting there and helping to clean. Well, that was a huge battle. I had to eat to discourage parasites. But in the process my insides began to heal dramatically. I was eating blackberries, drinking garlic keefir (which I couldn't have done 5 mths ago and gave me the first clue my insides had improved substantially), drinking oil of oregano or peppermint oil drops in a glasses of water, eating cabbage and green roughage. Drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it and Aloe Vera juice. After a couple of weeks my insides were a whole different story. I had a feeling of wellness that I hadn't had for years! I FELT like trying to eat something different. So I decided to try Gluten-free Rice Chex. Haven't had them in years.... and I am so happy! I can eat them!! (Not to say they are healthy, cause they are processed crap) but I didn't get sick and that was the amazing part. So now I am beginning to try a few things that would have set me back previously, I have made my own crème brulee because I have always been able to eat eggs. But the sugar was causing problems, but now it's okay. The issue I have now is that I want to try things too fast so I am having to exercise restraint. So here is it – parasites are very common, everyone has them however whether they cause problems depends on your immune system. Does it not makes sense that they would cause leaky gut? An over abundance in the gut would destroy gut tissue and take nutrients from a person and possibly put holes in the gut leading to food reactions? Digestive enzymes help to destroy the protective coating around parasites. Foods that discourage them or kill them are blackberries, garlic, cabbage, oil of oregano, peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, Braggs apple cider vinegar and more (google to find). I found medication didn't do anything so I turned to all the other. So this is how it is today. I don't suggest it is the answer to anyone else's problems but when I found this site, hidden in the posts was the beginning of the answers for me.  I may still be gluten, soy, corn intolerant but I am feeling so good now and I just thought I would tell someone.  I just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      Not to mention my hips and knees are killing me and I have really bad calf pains and horrible bloating after just 3 days of glutening. I don't think I could live like this for a whole week.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I saw my gi today and he said to not worry about eating gluten. I have abdominal pain in the small intestine area and referred pain in my back, indicating pretty bad damage. So I'll just go without the gluten and do the genetic testing if needed.
    • Vagus Nerve Attack
      Hello All: I came across this series of posts from as Google search on "Wheat Vagus Nerve". I find all of your replies very interesting and would like to add mine for those searching for information but with differing symptoms. I have struggled with the vagus nerve impact to breathing as Maria mentioned in the original post, but only an impact to breathing and nothing else.  But my symptoms were brought on not only by wheat, but also by other ingredients such as dark chocolate, probiotics, caprylic acid, mustard, fluoride in toothpaste/mouthwash just to name a few.  I found when I sat down my breathing would return to normal, but as soon I got up, the impact would return. The impact to breathing would come 4-6 hours after ingestion and last for about the same amount of time.  At times I could not even take ten steps without having to stop, not being able to breath even moderately.  The symptoms now are decreasing in severity but not in duration. My doctor checked my blood for celiac and results were negative. A number of chest x-rays to rule out COPD.  I am waiting on an appoint with an allergy specialist in a few weeks to see what they have to say.  Needless to say, it is difficult to maintain a healthy weight. Thanks for your posts, and I hope my contribution is of benefit to others also.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
