Has anyone tried vitamin C to bring a halt to symptoms?
Mega dosing vitamin C is supposed to block histamine.
I tried it with my son as a last resort, in desperation.
His fever cleared, and stomach pain went away within
Coincidence? I will probably never know.
Has anyone else tried it?

I have not tried it for glutening yet, but I definitely have noticed sinus congestion, pain and brain fog clearing when I mega dose Vitamin C.

Mega dosing has helped me clear multi-day constipation issues. I discovered the relationship earlier this year when I was trying to get over a cold quickly so I took a product called Emergen C, and took two doses close together. I had never gone such a large and dense quantity before in my 45 years.

That is interesting because Emergen C is only 1 gram in each dosing. You definitely have a lot of room to bump it up without concern if you get used to that small a dose over time.

I accidentally ate a finger swipe of gluteny mustard on a recent camping trip and during my freak out I decided to take an emergen-c about ten minutes after eating it. Not all of my symptoms went away but my face didn't swell at all (usually around my eyes) and my symptoms seemed to be less severe than normal. I'm not sure if there is any connection or if it was just all in my head. My next glutening I'll be trying it again. Even if it doesn't help any it definitely won't hurt me any.

Haven't tried it, first I've heard of this, sounds interesting though.
I can't really tell if I've eaten gluten, so I don't expect this would help me 'get over' eating the gluten. :-)
If that works by reducing a histamine response I would be surprised since histamines aren't IgAntibodies, which are supposed to be the ones involved in celiac disease. (Of course gluten intolerant people don't necessarily have the IgA reaction...)

Aren't strawberries exceedindly high in vitamin C, in the correct form of it too? (cis instead of trans or however natural vs. unnatural vitamin C is shaped) But strawberry allergies seem to be pretty common.

If it helps or works though, very cool! I should try it out. Brain fog, depression and tiredness are what's reduced my quality of life.
