#777362 What's Worse During The 1St Year: Fasting Or Overeating?

Posted by heidi g. on 29 February 2012 - 04:02 PM

I fast for my religion once in awhile and I noticed if I haven't eaten all day and then eat something heavy, my stomach gets crampy, bloated, and gassy. But that's even normal for people without celiacs disease. Now if you notice that when you haven't eaten and your stomach feels a slightly lunched associated with an empty burning feeling, then you need to eat small meals throughout the day. When you go to sleep that is all the rest your digestive system needs. If you want to give it a break eat rice or drink gluten free chicken broth.

#773290 Genetic Question...

Posted by heidi g. on 13 February 2012 - 05:43 PM

I know that people can have the genes for celiac but not have an active case of it. For example: the celiac gene has been passed down in my family for generations. But no one has an active case for like hundreds of years (unless they hid the symptoms and never told anybody) but when something traumatic happened to me it was "triggered" and now i am the only one in my family who has it. That is really all the knowledge i have on it. Hope it somewhat helps.

#771729 Pre Diagnosis Help Please!

Posted by heidi g. on 07 February 2012 - 09:48 PM

Also I forgot to mention this- i drank a half of bottle of mikes lite lemonade (gluten free alcoholic) and holy bananas i just am now starting to feel better. My stomach was so bloated and icky feeling and i had a sore throat every morning. I drank that like 2 weeks ago! I will never touch alcohol again i was only able to eat like once a day for 2 weeks. Ohhh my poor stomach. :( feel better! You can't choose what you get thrown at you in life but you can choose how to handle it. Think positive! Depression and anxiety make my symptoms sooooo much worse.

Your not a loser! I don't see many celiac symptoms personally, but if you do have gets, perhaps bread and pasta is too much to handle on an acidic tummy. I suffer with acid problems as well. Even when I eat the gluten free bread and pasta I get indigestion so bad I feel like puking by guts out! Horrible... I actually feel like that right now. I get extremely nauseous after D as well (which is what happened to me tonight) maybe you just have a weak stomach and don't tolerate nausea very well. I fight the urge to throw up with everything i can think of. Mucus jn the stool can mean alot of things. Moat likely your not digesting fatty acids very well. I get it too. Stay away from thick foods like peanut butter. Try eating steamed rice and steamed veggies. Eat foods that are easy to digest and won't distress your digestive system. Feel better and if you have any more questions feel free to message me

#771718 Am I Celiac? Negative Blood Test

Posted by heidi g. on 07 February 2012 - 08:58 PM

Yea I think you really might consider Candida. It reacts strongly to yeast but just the same to sugar because sugar feeds yeast. Try going off sugar which is all breads, pasta (even gluten free bread and pasta) and many more. Stick to a raw diet. Don't eat alot of fruits. White patches on tongue are a major symptom of Candida. I had it worse though it was on my tongue and working its way to the back of my throat. Once you try the Candida diet it will start to kill the yeast and you will experience something called the Candida die off. You will feel worse for a couple days and will crave sugar and breads like crazy. Craving sugar is also another big symptom because that's what the yeast feed on. You might be gluten intolerant but more than half of your symptoms fall into Candida. There is medicine you can take to help get rid of it. I would suggest going on the Candida diet for a week and then start a 2 week course of digestive enzymes and a probiotic. When I had it I wasn't digesting food either and my stools came out looking like food. Digestive enzymes will help with that. But seriously google Candida. And alot of health food stores know alot about it. Aloe Vera juice helps soothe the lower stomach pains. Candida is pain to get rid of because it can keep coming back.

My son also has a speech impediment. Does anyone know if celiac can slow child development?? He will be three in January and he's not really talking and has some other development issues.

#749816 Non-Severe Reaction... Help!

Posted by heidi g. on 22 November 2011 - 11:41 AM

I had a miscarriage too :/ I think i have had a couple. I have one son already i had him before i got sick. My wishes and luck go out to you. I know you can still have celiac and eat right and you can still get flare ups. For no reason- you can have other food allergies too that can be making you sick. try eliminating certain food groups. i know dairy can causes celiac symptoms- They do for me. soy, corn, eggs, and sometimes nuts can do that to you too.

#746008 Determined To Try Gluten Relief

Posted by heidi g. on 09 November 2011 - 09:52 AM

Karen your so funny! People think they can't ever enjoy food again. Like my neighbor who thinks her life is over because she is 15 and can't ever eat pizza. You can make your own pizza! you can make your own donuts! You can make your own fries! Sometimes i think life is over but let them eat their greasy foods and ill eat my rice and vegetables and fruits and ill have less risk of developing heart disease, high cholesterol, and heart attacks when im older! Were so lucky to even have all these tasty foods because im pretty sure, before they discovered all this food, they were eating like celiac's have to anyways. Why is America so fat? Because its too expensive to live healthy. Im trying to turn this negative curveball straight, and think of it as a blessing. I get to learn how to eat healthy and how to take better care of my body.

Bad idea i would think. Especially starting it when your new the healing and doing the diet. Plus, there's alot of scams on the internet. If it actually worked, im sure it would be all over the internet or the news. I mean, a cure for celiac disease is a big ordeal i would think.

#744531 A Miracle?!? - Change In My Reaction To Gluten

Posted by heidi g. on 03 November 2011 - 09:07 PM

question though- I have found some evidence to the claim that antibiotics can cause damaged villi. Here is one of the sites: http://www.phmiracle...probiotics.aspx I just have a strong feeling that i don't have celiac disease. I just don't get why- Maybe im just too hopeful

Posted by heidi g. on 03 November 2011 - 08:50 PM

I will definitely do that. Is celiac disease an allergy to gluten? Because people can be allergic to strawberries and if you just don't eat them your fine. Wouldn't gluten be like the same thing?

#744484 A Miracle?!? - Change In My Reaction To Gluten

Posted by heidi g. on 03 November 2011 - 05:55 PM

Well the thing is the only way i start feeling better is if my diet contains mostly of rice and steamed vegetables. I can't handle alot of other things. But maybe i just need time to heal before i can experiment with more gluten free foods. I have had my eye on gluten free chocolate cake mix i have found at the store.

Posted by heidi g. on 03 November 2011 - 05:20 PM

Hmm that's interesting. I should call my doctor as well and clarify with him what my biopsy exactly showed. All he told me was to try a gluten free diet. Not really a diagnosis o.O
