Sorry to hear about the vitamin issues, in the same boat myself. Finding the root cause of the acid reflux and not just covering up the symptoms with medication is the most important thing you can do. Unfortunately the majority of conventional doctors will send you away with PPI's no matter what symptoms you're having so you need to be assertive and attempt to find out WHAT is causing the acid reflux so you can determine the right approach. As you've experienced yourself these drugs taken over the long haul will only add to your problems (unless you have an ulcer, which they can then help the healing process by stopping the acid.) There are many changes you can make like eating smaller meals, avoiding acidic foods like tomatoes, coffee, etc, and you could try taking a tablespoon of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar diluted in water with every meal. This helps increase production of acid in the stomach which is what you want so that food is properly digested. The action of PPI's kills the stomach acid therefore leading to a low production, and the problems eventually snowball :(

As far as a good gluten free multi, I'd recommend Country Life Liquid Multi-vitamin. It's the one I was recommended when I first came on here 9 months ago and it was a huge help in regaining my energy and helping the healing process. It's very complete and if purchased online it's about 15-20 dollars which is good considering you'll get a month or so out of it.

I have been on 2 Prilosec a day for over a year & half. Knowing how bad they can be for you over the long haul I have tried to wean off but every time the acid has become so much worse, feels like pure acid pouring down my throat. Three weeks ago I started to take pure liquid Aloe, 2 oz two x's a day and have weaned down to just one Prilosec a day. So far.... feeling good and no acid! Almost afraid to cheer too loudly but it may be working and I would rather be doing something natural. Figured i would give it a month before starting to wean off of the 1 Prilosec a day. Maybe Aloe would help you. The health food store suggested it to me.

Thanks Syl

I get alot of info about Celiac, but generally there are no specifics as to what really works. My doctor took a blood sample to see if I have B-12 deficientcy, but also schudled me an appointment with a neuro guy. I would have rather found out about the B-12 before going to another Dr who may or may not know about Celiac. Ah such is life.

Well Cap6 I have just invested in a supplement drink that is supposed to be loaded with good things for Celiacs, but it looks and tastes like sludge and is a funky green color. lol So I guess aloe is probably not something I would add right now but thanks for the input. P

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
