Take a list of your symptoms and the report from the allergy doctor with you.

Tell him what you have been doing and how you feel better some days than others.

Ask him for an antihistamine and tell him about your gut burning.

Don't leave until you get some answers and a referral to a GI doctor. I am just suggesting here--but you need help, Coll!! You can't keep going this way.

Best wishes and let us know how you make out.

ok here is what it says on the other page

foods to be avoided
dairy sugar soy legumes coloring additivies potatoes rice wheat rye or corn all condiments processed foods mushrooms vegtables other than green
no nouts bananas grapes carrots tomatoes turnips and any other root veg peas no alcohol no proscessed foods of any kind

sugars that are allowed splenda stevia agave nectar

ok with that all said

oh good greif what how and omg oh wow

Wow is right. that is quite a list. I'm similar but have found that I tolerate hominy grits. I know, corn gluten is not usually suspect but I don't want any kind of gluten (can't eat rice apparently). I think when they make the grits the gluten is destroyed by the process.
anyhow, maybe that's one thing you could try. I do use butter and salt on them. MMMM good !

Colleen, can you stop and draw a big breath???? And then think of what you CAN eat. Be it one, two or three things, eat those. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, doesn't matter. And a couple of snacks in between because some tummies like food on them at all times - the shock of newly introduced "meals" is too much. Drink herbal teas and water. I would avoid artificial sweeteners and use agave or honey if you can tolerate them. Soups made with broth and any veg. you tolerate (and any seasoning you are okday with). Keep it super simple. Then starting with the foods you know you react to the least, introduce something elsel (but make it a whole food, not something processed). And do that for a week. Try to get your system calmed down because right now it sounds all riled up. If nothing has been found through testing (and again, I am unclear what specific testing you have had done for parasites, infections, etc.) then keeping your food whole, simple, clean and limited sounds to me like the best way to go. :) And make it cooked, not raw because riled up tummies do NOT like raw.

Coll--

take the digestive enzymes BEFORE you eat something.They provide the enzymes your gut may be lacking and help you digest the food.

Probiotics in the AM before eating with a big glass of water. L-glutamine--is a capsule or powder? take it anytime--unless the bottle says otherwise.

I do not take allergy meds, so someone else may have to help you with that one.

As we discussed, keep it pure and simple. nothing raw.

Let us know what the doc says. I am VERY glad you are going to a new one!!!

I am afraid I can't help you much with herbal teas in the U.S. :( Every year when I come over I have a hard time finding good ones I like, especially now I can no longer drink Celestial Seasonings Lemon Zinger, which used to be my favourite. They have some others you may like, - Raspberry Zinger, Bengal Spice, can't think of them all now. That would be my suggestion of where to start. Do check for gluten as I found one of them contained gluten. I often bring my herbal teas with me in the summer :rolleyes:

the new doc says that the pro that i bought was the best on the market and made a good choice as well with the enzimes he just says keep doing what you are doing stay away from allergins keep going to the allergy dr and he will be currious to get a report back from the allergiest and to look at my file in the mean time do investagation your self choose healthy foods and i have to see him in 3 months
then we will disscuss further testing for intolerences and celiac and everything so thats good

Glad you are feeling better!! YAAY!! :)

Keep doing what you are doing. I am so happy the Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics are helping! You really had a rough road.

As for future testing for celiac, it will not give you a valid result if you are not eating wheat or gluten products, hon.

I'm SO glad you are doing better. You were having such a hard time for a while there and we were worried about you.
It's amazing what those supplements can do?
Keep going...each day a bit more healing should happen? :D

it has been a while since i been here

i have been involved in searching for grain free meals

i have been making almond coconut meal muffins found out that i can not even tolorate rice or grains or anything from the cereal family

since i gave up the cereal and grain family i have felt alot better no more desert feeling throat or feeling like i swollowed sand or powder

so in that aspect is great brain fog has calmed down as did virtigo
but boy do i ever know it if i have been glutenated wow or any of the other top 10 allergins

i made a wonderful turkey dinner by only useing qunioa flour buckwheat flour and arrowroot flour for the gravy and using honey for sweetning the squash, carrots and stirfryed in coconut oil aspargus garlic green beans and almond meal over top the almond meal kindof tastes like parmasaun cheese thats pritty cool

i made a coconut cream pie as well with almond meal agave and baking soda for crust and topping is 24hr cold coconut milk opened up from bottom pour out liquid whiped up the cream added coconut and sugar free vanilla pudding whipped that up and that was the topping omg talk about good now mind you when i used the pudding mix it was sugar free but also had aspratame in it and i did not really like the after taste of that so if i ever do that again im going to make sure that i have gluten-free vanilla and do a non aspratame version

mind you im still having a hard time trying to figure out what to have for breakfast cause alot of times my guts no not really want anything thats so solid
i have to try and find a nice soft soothing filling breakfast so i have alot of investagateing to do in the breakfast feild


so im off to do some searching have a great day everyone :)

Hi Colleen!

OMG! I was thinking about you yesterday and wondering how you are doing. I have been having some throat burning and feeling "off" myself and have re-vamped my diet to see if it helps. I thought of you and hoped you had been making progress.

Yes, avoid aspartame. That stuff is toxic junk.

This is good news. You are finding your way around the food limitations and feeling better. :)

One thing I know about myself is...it took a long time for me to get this way, so it may take a long time to recover.

Are you still taking the digestive enzymes and probiotics? That will help with healing your leaky gut.

I have trouble with breakfast too. Hey, can you make an almond or coconut flour type muffin? Use a butter and egg substitute if you have to.
