How It Works

05 February 2008 - 06:24 PM

I'm just wondering how it works... I have been gluten free for only a week, and really after 2 days a lot of my problems were gone. How is it possible for it to work so fast? I am self diagnosed, so I don't know if its celiac or just an intolerance. But if gluten damages the intestines, shouldn't it take longer before you have any symptom relief? I mean, shouldn't the stomach have to heal for a certain length of tme before symptoms improve? I just wonder how it works.

I'm in France right now. And, I have found lots of gluten free products in the stores... however, the breads are tiny. No way the slices are big enough to make a sandwich. I took some bread with my lunch one day and when i went to eat it, it was all crumbled into tiny pieces. Is this the case with all gluten free brands? I'll be moving back to the US in a few months, are there any breads you recommend for sandwiches.. (either in the US or in France)or, have a recipe for bread that you use on sandwiches. I really just want a sandwich and havent been able to find normal sized bread slices!

Hello everyone. I'm new to this... both the board AND to gluten free. I've pretty much determined that I have either gluten intolerance or celiac. I'm not sure which but I've been gluten free for a week and ALL my physical symptoms are gone. I might even say that my emotional issues (such as anxiety) are improving. So.. basically, I don't want to eat gluten anymore. I haven't been to the doctor and honestly, I'm not sure I see the point in it. I have read that there is nothing they can do for it except tell you not to eat gluten. i can do that on my own ;-) Or, is there some reason to have a formal diagnosis that I should know of before I go too long gluten free..

Anyway. I'm glad there is a group, and I just wanted to say hello. :)
