Hey thur lovely people, A quick question.

from what I gather, the healing process can be long and brutal for some.
alright, all good and fine, BUT I've been dealing with damn near every intolerance there is since this whole ordeal.

I'm basically being told I'm just healing, Anyone else with this kind of healing process? super sensitive digestion?

would love to know this is more common and it does hopefully..subside.. no biggy if not, y'know chickens..great =P

I felt this way after I'd been glutened, early on in the healing process. It took me a while to realize I react to everything (just the mere act of eating) in the days after I've been glutened. Basically, I was irritating the digestive tract which was already pretty irritated from the accidental gluten.

It also happened if I was getting low levels of cross-contamination repeatedly--I felt like I reacted to everything, really it was just that my intestines were constantly, mildly irritated, and any substance crossing through them made them more irritated.

In the end, I was only ever intolerant to onions, but at times when healing, it felt like I was intolerant of everything. So my advice is go through your gluten-free diet and recheck everything, especially for cross-contamination. When you start feeling like you can't eat anything, retrace your steps for a few days and see if there was a triggering point when you might have gotten some gluten.

THANKS! this helps immensely...I have been 100% gluten-free, yet I believe I was glutened at my sister's house, then at the dentist's office 2X in the past month and so, I keep feeling as if I am reacting to EVERYTHING...it's ridiculous. I start to feel a bit better and then,I have heartburn or stomach pain or C or D or a huge increase in the chronic burning neuropathy I have or BRAIN FOG/Exhaustion or insomnia...so I KNOW it's been a gluten dose or CC because these are my "tells". :rolleyes:

I know the healing process is long, but geez, I'd like to have a few good days strung together....It's only been 10 weeks. So I'll be patient, but it's been so long and I was getting discouraged....until I read THIS!!

This is exactly how I've been feeling, too...like everything is poison, I react to everything! Yesterday I was feeling like I wasn't sure how much more I could take :( This gives me hope...also, I think it's time to get rid of the gluteny shampoo..it's worth a shot.
