Does Anyone Ever Feel Really Good?

28 posts in this topic

You seem to have had a lot of replies already, but personally, I think it may depend on the individual. Sometimes we find out we have other health issues once one is discovered. I was found to be suffering from malnutrition before being diagnosed, even though I ate well. Apart from being severely anaemic (despite already having had a hysterectomy a number of years ago) and I was also found to be lacking in vitamin D. Since taking vitamin D I can report on my joint/muscle pain improved considerably. Have you had your vitamin and mineral levels checked? I also have an under active thyroid which causes different symptoms (before treatment). I have diabetes, fibromyalgia (CFS) and am intolerant to dairy products and some other foods.

Nothing is 'clear cut' and it's trial and error with a lot of things. Don't lose heart though, there's a solution to every problem. One other thing, have you thought of keeping a food diary with everything you eat and drink?

I think 5 peppers plus a steak might have been simply too much. Any food will not feel too good, when we eat too much.I was also wondering if food combining would help?

THis was for my family not just for myself!

I am suppose to be low sals and peppers are not low in sals by any means. Thats all we had in the house though. It tasted great but I really need to pay attention to the sals more carefully.

Thanks everyone.

    • It really can be anywhere or any random source, Few tips, as mentioned eat whole foods only nothing processed, Use Freezer paper on your prep surfaces to fix your foods, perhaps gloves in case your touching something else (door to fridge, pantry, computer keyboard, etc) that might have trace gluten residue. Have dedicated gluten-free cooking utensils, pots, and pans. Check your soaps, shampoos, make up and other hygiene products, these might also contain gluten that could be cross contaminating.  I personally had this exact issue and broke down sold everything I had and started new in a new apartment, new appliances, new everything since I was getting sick at least twice a week and could not hold a job. I will link you to the list of gluten ingredients to look out for. Hopefully you can find the cause and not have to go as radical as I did to get relief. It might be something as simple as a spice, or a random product in you house.
    • Thanks for your replies...!  Thanks for all the tips, I am indeed on a caveman diet and trying to figure out what works best. I had rice on Friday and unfortunately did get a reaction (bloating/nervousness), which for now makes carbs a thing of the past. I do indeed do very well on protein and am becoming picky about the ingredients in foods as well. For example I had asparagus the other day but they were packed in citric acid. Little did I know citric acid had sugar. Suffered a severe reaction. All-natural indeed is the only way to go when it comes to curing this thing..  Well, it's a valuable lesson. I never drank enough during my childhood but I'm trying to drink at least a bottle nowadays. It probably contributed to my gut issues.  I'll do my best and see how it goes.  Thanks again, Ken
    • In Saint Denis , the capital,  New shop L ile ô bio , rue Michel Ah Sam tel 0262946564sells gluten free biscuits brand Nature & Co quite nice, pasta  Italian shop Mediterraneo 38bis rue Charles Gounod 0262134702 sells nice pasta and sauces  Frozen shop Picard sells a Genius bread , not bad    local food, beware of the gratin de chouchou , very nice but the bechamel sauce got flour easy to find salad and grilled fish, lots of rice base dishes 
    • I was in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana & South Africa this summer, with very few problems.  I brought a ton of Kind bars, Justin's peanut butter packets and Costco beef jerky just in case!  I get the Kind Bars and Justin's on Amazon Prime.  Africans eat a lot of meat (try the Kudu, it's awesome!) and veggies.  Stay away from sauces.  I don't recommend eating the Mopane tree worms, even though they are gluten-free.  I tried to get out of it, but my tour leader said they were gluten-free and I had to try it as part of the experience....ewwwww!  lol  gluten-free is quite popular in South Africa...they call in the Banting diet.  Maybe they know it up north as well?  I would definitely stay away from chips because you have no idea what else has been in the same fryer oil.  One chicken nugget and you're toast.  I've never had a problem with rice.  Have a great trip...Africa is amazing!  
    • Hi Jan, Have you had any allergy testing? Could be you are allergic to something else. My daughter is Celiac and was still getting ill & feeling awful after going gluten-free. Found out through several blood tests that she is allergic to shrimp, wheat, yeast & sesame seeds. Many GlutenFree foods contain the things she is allergic too so her food choices just had to change. But she was recently diagnosed with EoE from her lastest endoscopy after being  sick with horrible acid.  Go have more testing with a GI doctor that is current with celiac disease and it's many different symptoms. Knowledge is a powerful weapon and you need to try and stay positive. You have many people who you can turn to and a big Celiac family that is always ready to listen & help where they can!
