My First Time Here - Gluten Intolerance And Low Iron
0

29 posts in this topic

I can emphatically write to you that the gut is the 'seat of the emotions'.

Emotional insensitivity and emotional problems,

are closely linked to gut issues.

The so-called 'celiac disease', and i think most people here can agree it is a body rejection of gluten,

causing destruction of the small intestine,

creates emotionally hyperstimulation conditions,

which in turn reduce one's real sensitivity.

There are some diet-related things, for instance,

I totally disagree with restricting iodine in the diet:

this is one red-herring so-far.

Liquid iodine, iodine solution in water (pure), is absorbed directly through the mucus linings of the mouth,

and never reaches the gut. Plus it has an extremely beneficial effect, so this is why the mainstream death-oriented/worshipping players,

push breads (gluten, destroy the gut) and anti-iodines (fluorines, bromines, and an iodine deficient diet: destroy the thyroid, and fertility).

We get our iodine at about 50USD per liter. It's not expensive. Sea vegetables could potentially be a good source.

Apart from that, fasting.

Have you tried fasting, or fasting coupled with a mono-diet for awhile?

Such as mineral water, raw eggs [organic, bio-dynamic] with bananas and a few other things,

this to give the gut a break from serious digestion and also provide nutrients?

Only after less than two weeks, the improvement is clear, after 20 years not knowing this was one issue i was dealing with.

All the other techniques, learned over time, have allowed the healing process to accelerate much more quickly.

Without them, it may have taken me much more time.

AussieAmanda,

Two things that you should know: First, what you've been told about breast cancer not hurting is simply not true. I speak from experience when I say that my breast cancer DID hurt. It's a fallacy that actually doctors continue to perpetuate--several doctors told me that breast cancer isn't painful. However, depending on the type, it can definitely hurt.

Secondly, once you go gluten free, your body is now able to absorb hormones better. If, by any chance, you have a small cluster of breast cancer cells in one of your breasts that occurred because of low iron levels, once your body is able to absorb hormones, they can feed the cancer...and it can grow quickly. I'm not tell you this to scare you--I've mentioned it in previous threads, and I'm mentioning it again now because it bears repeating. I had read this very information in a newsletter sent to me by the Gluten Intolerance Group just a few months before I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and it was at the urging of the article that I began to really pay attention to the pain in my breast. The pain, in conjunction with my cat's odd behavior, convinced me to insist that my healthcare provider check more closely for breast cancer, since my mammogram had been negative. Thankfully, the cancer was found in time. If you have any concerns about your breasts, please get an MRI or an ultrasound.

This isn't right Amanda. Cancers don't feed on (or even use) hormones.

Cancers (most at least) thrive on glucose, which is why a ketogenic

diet can be so succesful as part of cancer treatments. The body fuels itself

on ketones (from a high fat, high protein, VERY low carb diet) and the

abscence of glucose literraly starve the cancer cells.

Hormones have nothing to do with cancer cell growth - (unless we're

talking about insulin resistance and the ensuing chronicallly high blood

sugar) but leaving out gluten (and the associated crapohydrates) can

be a good start towards reducing your odds of getting cancer!

Cheers,

BW

Just so you know, you are replying to an old thread and the OP has not been on site since July 2011 and may not see your reply.

    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • 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.
