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)

    • I think the gene tests are accurate.  Not sure if thier interpretation of them is.   If you actually think have Celiac, you need to know that.  You  need to know how careful you must be.  You need a diagnosis to get gluten-free food in hospitals or nursing homes (if you can find one that does gluten-free food).  Because thsese "stool tests" are not medically accepted, it is unlikely that a real medical facility will consider you to have Celiac.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Why would your doctor order an endoscopy and check for celiac disease, but not order a celiac panel?  Had you been gluten free already?  
    • Thanks cyclinglady ... just wondering, do most of the people on this forum believe the Enterolab stool / gene testing to be non-trustworthy? Or are you just recommending a diagnosis from my MD so that she is also treating me with full belief/knowledge of my condition? I've been gluten free now for 2 weeks - by the time I get in to my doctor, she orders the bloodwork and I get to a lab it could be another 2 weeks before the bloodwork is done. From what I understand, just a month of gluten free eating could skew the results of the blood test. Supposedly, the stool tests are much more accurate. I hate to go backwards and start eating gluten again just so I can have a blood test done that may or may not substantiate the results of the stool / gene testing. I'm so confused ...
    • Try to stick to a whole foods diet.  Things like unseasoned stew, soup, etc.  Things easy-to digest, preferably not processed by a anyone except you.  Too often new celiacs start using gluten-free foods (cookies, bread, crackers).  Your body is not used to these grains and they often contain lots of junk.  For example, I react to Xantham gum.  It does not bother my gluten-free hubby, but it gets me every single time!   Did you read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping"?   It contains lots of valuable tips.  Make sure those meds are gluten free.  Supplements too.   I hope you feel better soon!    
    • Here are the actual tests.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Insist on the complete panel.  Let them know (your doctor) that your father had celiac disease.   Document in writing!  If you have celiac disease, your life can be improved.  All the things I attributed to aging were actually related to celiac disease.  It is never too late to feel well!  I am in my 50's but my Aunt iis 81.  We celebrate a Gluten free Thanksgiving every year!   Oh, my kid does not have celiac disease, but she is tested every few years even though she is symptom free!  There are silent celiacs.  My symptom?  Anemia.  No tummy issues.   Please advocate for your health.  Keep all records.  Doctors can not ignore written facts and requests.
