I Feel Good!
0

10 posts in this topic

I didn't know which heading I should put this under, but here it is:

After only 17 days of my new diet, I feel like I have shed 20 years. I am one of those with no specific symptoms. I didn't even know I was sick. It was the link between psoriasis anc Celiac which brought me here.

But I guess I WAS sick. I thought I was just getting OLD! My psoriasis is almost gone already, but there are so many other things that have gotten better. I am now sleeping 7 or 8 hours a night, straight through. I have energy like I haven't felt since I was MUCH younger. My little aches and pains have disappeared. My head is clearer. I feel HOPEFUL and positive.

Today, I feel like I can take on the whole world and win. I am just so happy, I had to share it with all of you, along with my thanks for all the help and advice! :)

I've been singing that song to the cat for the past two days. ;)

I'm thinking maybe the reason I feel so good is that I am finally sleeping well. It has affected everything - my energy level and my mood. I know my mood is better too, because my hands and feet don't hurt anymore. Now I can take a walk. Now I can play my guitar without pain.

And it has been so EASY. Just a change in diet. It wasn't old age after all. It wasn't any of those scary diseases that run through your thoughts in the middle of the night. I just changed my diet and now I feel healthy and strong.

And happy, happy, happy.

Wow! Well done! There's hope for me yet! I'm 31 and feel years older. The fatigue and aches and pains are driving me nuts. I'm going to slowly become gluten free this coming week (just to ease myself into it). My blood results arent back but it can't hurt!

Keep up the good work x

When I first started, I was SOOO tired. Waves of fatigue would wash over me and I needed to go lie down. Then a friend told me to avoid the sweet potatoes, carrots, and FRUIT I had been eating until late in the day. The fructose was making my sugar spike, then plummet. For the past week, I save all of the sugar filled fruits and veggies for supper and dessert. It has made a HUGE difference.

Get yourself some Udi's bread (tastes like french bread - yum!) Then stick to meat and potatoes or rice, and eat lots of broccoli or other green veggies. I don't know about anyone else, but my sweet tooth has shriveled up since I have been on this diet. I don't miss the cookies at all - instead I might have a slice of Canyon Bakehouse gluten free 7-grain bread as a snack. Then, as I said, a piece of fruit before bed - and that makes me sleepy.

I hope it goes as well for you as it has for me. :)

Many moons ago when I was waitressing, one of the women I worked with used to come up behind her fellow waitresses and sing a line from some of the worst songs she could think of, just to get them stuck in our heads.

Might I interest you in, "Like a rinestone cowboy", "See the tree how big it grows" (also known as "You died so I planted a stupid tree") or perhaps "You light up my life"? :lol:

But seriously, if you need a GOOD song to replace it with, just start singing, "I've got sunshine on a cloudy day..."

WOW...now, that's funny because that's the song my hubby always sings to me because he has always called me his "girl"...aw, thanks...that's better!! B)

(I guess the only one slightly worse would have been " she's Havin my baby"?? ...that "Honey, I miss you" one with the tree?..ow, man...UGH and pass me the barf bag)

    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      Hi Courtney, You asked about dairy, and RMJ got it right.  Celiac disease destroys the villi lining of the small intestine.  Those villi make the lactase enzyme we need to digest dairy. Sigmoid colon thickening could be related to diverticulitis.  Which according to Wiki is a fairly common condition but doesn't always cause symptoms.  Diverticulitis can cause a problem if there is an infection though.  The sigmoid colon is part of the large intestine.  Celiac disease affects the small intestine, so celiac isn't likely involved.  I am not sure why the resident suggested celiac, unless there were some other reason to do so.  Possibly the weight loss, which could be explained by celiac disease.  Thickening of the colon may happen with Crohn's disease also.  And I'm not sure about UCD (ulcerative colitis disease) but it might cause that also, not sure https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diverticulosis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmoid_colon http://biology-pages.info/G/GITract.html#pancreas http://www.ccfa.org/what-are-crohns-and-colitis/what-is-ulcerative-colitis/
    • So I've been glutened....
      Hi JMG, Since it's easy, and always fun, I'd blame your sister. That's what I do.  But seriously, if it's an ongoing problem, rather than an isolated incident stick with your first guess.  Then test it.   So get rid of the oat bread or the sister (her food) or anything that is a consistent part of your diet and you suspect could be the problem.  Of course processed foods are the most likely issue always. It's easy enough to drop back to a very few foods for a few days and see if things improve.  Eating with celiac isn't about having the most exciting diet, it's about eating a medically safe diet.  So it can be boring sometimes.  That's ok, being in pain is exciting but not so fun.   Boring is fine. You might ask your sister what brands of flour she used, and other ingredients.  Then check on those products for possible gluten issues.  If they turn out to be possible problems, make a note of it so you can avoid them in the future. My own sister has been gluten-free for years but she has made me sick several times with her "creations".  It really is best to trust your own cooking and nobody else's for at least 6 months as you are getting used to the diet and healing.  Then slowly branch out and add things in maybe 1 new item in a week.  Slow and controlled diet changes are the way to go.  Boring but safe.  Happy but slow.    
    • So I've been glutened....
      Jmg I am sorry to hear you are unwell. You have been so kind and helpful to me on the boards here. You deserve the time to rant too.   Everyone's suggestion of probiotic is helpful. I have taken them since the 1990's in spurts as needed but was told by my DC after this March glutening I should take it daily "for life". My local store ran out, (I buy the type that must be refrigerated so the manufacturer does not ship direct to customer.) I was ok first day without it but by day 3 I knew I had to locate some for the probiotic/ enzyme blend was necessary for me. I have still not healed well enough yet to be without. As others said it could be cc from sis or the food  industry. Within the food industry even with parameters in place errors can be made- hopefully not too often.  Often rare though especially if not designated facility.  It is hard to know some days what it was. I do hope you get better soon. Yes I do think it can affect the brain/mood. Happens to me a large amount can be immediately,  but a smaller amount by day 2 after glutening. I want to ban gluten everywhere in my environments, unrealistic I know,  but have only been able to do that at home.  Be kind and patient with yourself at this time as you would tell me. ((((((Hug)))))
    • So I've been glutened....
      Yeah I did all the bone broths and sauerkraut after my challenge. Although I wasn't very good at making sauerkraut... Its summer here now so I've eased up on the bone boiling, plus my local butcher is struggling to obtain them. As you say healing to the point where microscopic cross contamination doesn't get you would be a big win.  I was ok with coffee until last few days. I drank decaff black and would have several cups a day without issue. I'll be gutted if I can't handle it any more. I hadn't realised you could get gluten-free miso soup. Will have to look for that

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
