In Topic: Nexium, Mentos And More

Fructose from Wheat?? OMG what next? I am very new to all of this and have been on this website nearly all night reading and reading and learning a lot of new stuff.
I have only been diagnosed for about 3 months now with celiac disease and was eating Mento's in the box because I thought they were okay. The ones in the rolls for some weird reasons have colorants added but the ones in the boxes are colored with veggie dyes, like beet juice etc. Go figure?
Well, so much for Mento's. I have come to the conclusion that if it tastes good, its probably got wheat or gluten in it somewhere!

In Topic: Vinegar And Acid Reflux/heartburn

My experience was that if you have a low acid stomach the vinegar may help but if you had over active stomach acidity it could make it worse. I did the Bragg's Vinegar thing in the water and my stomach got Much worse. I have been too scared to try it again for the acid reflux, so now I am trying the Organic Aloe Vera juice and organic raw garlic cloves and plain Dannon yogurt. I eat about 4 Tbsps. of the yogurt every other day as sometimes the yogurt (dairy thing) can cause a mucous over-reaction which makes my nose start to run etc.
I wish I could find a natural cure for my acid reflux. It comes and goes and sometimes I don't have it for several days at a time, then other times its there every day all day no matter what I try.

In Topic: Nightshade Intolerance

26 August 2007 - 09:19 PM

Yes Yes Yes!! Took me forever to figure this one out though. I thought it was the milk if I had mashed potatoes, then I thought it must be the butter if I had baked potatoes, then I thought maybe it was something in the Combo of the Starch and Protein together issue (the Macrobiotic method of eating says this is a big No No), finally after being diagnosed with Celiac disease 3 months ago and being Totally Gluten-Free (to my knowledge anyway), I was Still having Horrid pains in my stomach, but I noticed this only happened with a meal that contained Potatoes or anything with Tomato base...sauces or whatever. I made a mock Spanish Rice meal one night that tasted soooo good going down with ground turkey and a tomato based sauce that all gluten free and fresh ingredients etc., I had the Worst Reaction I've had in ages from that and was 3 days getting over it and then had Acid Reflux for a week after that.

So, I guess I they aren't called the "deadly nightshades" for nothing...that night I thought I was dying. Yeowwwy!
So now I have scratched potatoes and tomatoes off my list...two of absolute favorite veggies in the world. Just my luck.

In Topic: Flashing Lights

26 August 2007 - 08:47 PM

I have had those Zig-Zag half-moon flashes across my eyes for years and my Eye doctor told me they can happen if I've eaten too much chocolate or cheese. She said that for me at least it was nothing to worry about that sometimes the blood vessels get stressed and dialated after chocolate or cheese consumption and causes this reaction. Hopefully it will be the same for those of you who reported what sounded like the same thing I have experienced.

In Topic: (gut Nerves)"the Second Brain" Incredibly Interesting Book Discussed...

26 August 2007 - 08:37 PM

My husband was telling me something about this which I half listened to at the time, but this ~might~ explain why when I used to be preparing certain foods (I am newly diagnosed Celiac 3 months ago), that just smelling and handling certain foods my stomach would start to swell up so bad that by the time supper rolled around I couldn't eat because I felt like I was going to explode inside if I put one mouthful of food in there.
My upper back would hurt so bad from the swelling of my stomach that I was Miserable! Now that our house is completely Gluten-Free I don't have that happen anymore and this leads me to believe that perhaps there is more to this "gut-brain" thing to be learned about.
Thanks for posting this, it reminded me that I should search this one out.
