3 years on I still have problems, though better. A few things to consider:
First, if you have watery diarrhea you might want to be checked for microscopic colitis (inflammation of the large intestine) which has a strong correlation with celiacs (I have it)
Second, you might have IBS too (my doc says that I also have this!!!)

So here I am, sitting in my rocker at 0800 in my PJ's waiting for the Ativan to kick in to quell the nausea a bit so I can shower then eat goodness knows what?
Thanks for passing along your neighbor and your doctor's advice. I also can't do SCD (or GAPS) because it makes me sick, and I'm looking for other options. I have iron overload so I'll skip the red meat, but everything else sounds great (except brown rice...need to do white or I'm in trouble). I've found soaking grains for 24h to be IMMENSELY helpful, and I've gotten really into fermenting my own foods, which really seems to help digestion. (My probiotic pills are in the mail, too.)
One thing about nausea...I had it constantly the first week I went on the GFD. I know it sounds stupid, and you've probably already tried this, but homemade and very strong ginger tea got rid of it for me. In fact, there was just a study that ginger tea is effective for nausea, at least in the context of morning sickness: http://well.blogs.ny...ring-pregnancy/
Anyway, apologies if you've already exhausted this. I just sipped on ginger tea constantly (I grated tons of frozen ginger into water, boiled it for 20 minutes or so, and threw in some sugar cubes when I drank it). At the least, maybe consider it as an additive for your smoothie.
