In Topic: Stepdaughter And Constipation Issues

21 April 2013 - 01:50 PM

I had horrible issues with it until I got rid of dairy.  As soon as the gluten and dairy went away, so did the constipation.  Orange juice actually helps with it.  It draws water into the matter and helps it pass.  I have a big glass of OJ every morning when I get up!

In Topic: Need Help With Corn Intolerance!

I've read there have been studies done that show corn is as toxic to us as gluten.  It's a cross reactive thing that happens and our bodies don't realize it's not gluten and starts freaking out.  I was sick all last week from corn.  I'm finally starting to feel better.  I cannot eat it or I get stomach issues, face breaks out, headaches, fatigue....a lot like the gluten issues I used to have.  I say avoid it all together, when you can!

Tons of water and rest. I try to stick to whole foods only, nothing processed. I also won't dare eat out or allow anybody cook for me until I'm over it. I got sick last week. I'm just now feeling better. Now if my skin would clear up, that would be wonderful : ).

In Topic: Severe Glutening From Corn!

I cannot eat corn anymore. It gives me migraine headaches, bloating, and gas. Is not as bad as the gluten reaction but my body doesn't like it at all. It's also all gmo at this point, so I guess we really shouldn't eat it anyway!

Hi friends,

I learned last May that i was gluten intolerant and spent the summer discovering hidden gluten and having a hard time while traveling. Once home I was able to have greater control over my diet and I hadn't been sick since! Yay for veggies for breakfast! After a few glorious months without any reactions (and also eliminating corn, soy, and chocolate) I was feeling pretty chuffed. I felt like I had everything under control. I was well on the road to healing and good health. Life was fine. And So I went to a restaurant where I used to go with my family, my 4 year old son's favorite place. Despite my conversations with the manager I got gluttened. Yuck.

At least the reaction was not as intense as it had been. Instead of being in bed for 3days with depression, joint ache, etc in addition to the digestive ills there was only the digestive ills. Since we traveled on Monday I was able to push through the discomfort and pack and travel.

The problem is that since then I am still feeling sick. I brought my own food to the airport. I drank from my own water bottle there. I have been doing my own cooking since then. Granted my young kids, husband and mother are all eating gluten but they are also schooled to avoid cross contamination. But something must be happening. I am getting worse, when I only want to get better!

I have read threads about cross contamination with pots n pans, with cutting boards, etc., but I haven't had to change these things at my house so why would we need to change them here? And I can't figure out what is going on. Our first day here I ate turkey lunchmeat (a possible culprit since the I couldn't read the ingredients, but last summer was OK...it's the roasted turkey breast from Trader Joes) then homemade chicken soup. Yesterday I had leftover soup and homemade beef stew, again made by me from fresh veggies and meat. I also made paleo bread which I had for breakfast today. My other two breakfasts were shredded sweet potato with an egg and gluten free bacon (I did read the package which said no gluten and also didn't have corn or soy or dairy).

Ugh. It was so nice to live symptom free! I had actually forgotten how bad it could actually get. And now I am paying the price again. Yuck. It is hard not knowing why, as I don't know what to correct. I just want my stomach to feel regular again. It is so hard to go back to living with pain after months of clean healthy living!

Thanks for listening to my vent! And I am open to listening to your ideas about cc or whatever might be the problem.

I got sick last week also. It was bad : (. My belly hurt until Tuesday, six days after it happened. My body didn't react the same way as before, but it was bad...for sure gluten. I ate at BJ's and had the gluten free pizza that wasn't. Hope you get to feeling better soon.
