0

10 posts in this topic

To encourage you in your Diet and supplement program:

Here are some things that have improved for me. Please I would like others to list their improvements.

Sometimes I feel invigorated after excercise instead of devastated.

High blood pressure lowered to almost athletic level

Orthostatic blood pressure curve normalizes

Dry skin relieved

Dry hay stack hair turns to silky

Insatiable appetite slackened

Dizziness abates

Fatigue becomes infrequent or is based on activity level.

Age spots fall off neck.

Heavy eyes are lighter.

I lost 30lbs and kept it study 3 years.

My gums are getting less likely to bleed.

I have also been getting Chiropractic adjustments and can feel that they help now.

I'm only 1 month in to recovery, but I was severely malnourished - I have no way of knowing if I was more severe than anybody else but I know I have an incredibly high pain threshold and I was reduced to not getting out of bed 2-3 entire days a week.

My "repair" seems to be happening at an astronomical pace.

Fingernails need to be cut every 2-3 days -- previously once a month

I get shooting hairs out of my bald area that grow 2 inches overnight

Skin conditioner not needed - I live in super dry Phoenix and my skin is no longer dry and flaking.

Blood pressure is coming down steadily

Weight is coming down steadily

Ability to exercise is "through the roof" Now, when I work out, the next day I feel stronger instead of weaker.

Depression is gone.

Can't do has been replaced with Can do.

My severe body aches and pains are completely gone, even on days when I run 5-7 miles.

I like this thread. The no constant vomiting and other GI issues is how many of us start here, but it is nice to see all this other stuff that hopefully will help us stay gluten-free.

This is just what I wanted. Thanks, I don't think I was done with my list; however it may come in snatches. Please others can you add to this? I am glad people like it. The more variety in our symptoms shared the more encouraging it can be! There is hope.

Hi,

I have severe dermatitis herpetiformis and have had it come and go for the past 4 years. I'm an East Texas girl who loves her fried chicken and gravy, chicken and spaghetti casserole, etc. but the truth is, I suffer from other symptoms besides DH.

Your list has made me more determined to stick to a gluten-free lifestyle. (It ain't easy.)

I have itchy, dry, flaky skin all over my body and scalp.

Thank you for the motivation. I need it.
