Serious Relief From Apple Cider Vinegar
0

8 posts in this topic

A few months ago, I had a bad gallbladder attack after being glutened. In agony, I remembered that ACV could help tummy troubles. So sick I couldn't think, I poured a glug or two in water and chugged it. The relief was almost instant, and I had been throwing up and sufferring for over an hour.

Last week, my 13 yo got glutened and was SO sick. Usually she is in pain for hours before she staRts puking, and then throws up for hours. Decided to try the ACV. It made her puke within a minute or two. She felt better for a bit, then got sick again. A second dose stopped the pain and nausea right away and she was able to sleep.

For those looking for some pain relief with a glutening, give it a try! Be sure to get the organic ACV with the "mother" (that's the gross scummy stuff floating in it.) I will always keep a bottle in the medicine cabinet from now on!

My body's response to gluten is like your daughter's. I have some ACV (Bragg's, I believe). I will definitely try it next time. Of course I am working hard to not have a "next time!!!"

I don't know why, but apple cider vinegar fixes everything! I always use it when I have a cold or stomach problems.

Maybe the acid helps digest the food? Curious isn't it?

I have the Bragg's brand here (with the mother). I'll have to remember to use it more often when I have a bit of trouble digesting.

I hope I never have to find out if it works for a glutening! :lol:

I swear by ACV. I drink a little every morning before I have breakfast. I don't dilute it in water anymore, I put a little bit in a glass and take it like a shot, lol. Then I brush my teeth. Remember to do that after you drink it, because it can cause tooth problems if you don't brush right away.

Leslie - I've read that you absolutely should NOT brush your teeth immediately after drinking ACV because the acid makes your enamel soft - brushing immediately afterwards will harm your enamel. Better idea is to either use a straw to drink it, or wait at least an hour after drinking it to brush your teeth. Swish with some water afterwards too. I drink ACV all the time because I have low stomach acid and it helps SO much - but gotta protect those teeth!

I keep ACV for everything from a tooth ache, to dandruff!! This stuff is amazing. I make kale with sliced apple and ACV to help my healing process. I've heard that you cans add a cup to bath water to cure yeast infections. I use diluted ACV on a swab to clean my face and it keeps my completion clear and tone.

    • 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.
