In Topic: Cures For Constipation?

07 February 2012 - 06:54 PM

Prune juice every morning before a cup of coffee is the only thing that works for me. Still only works about 5 days out of 7. I eat plenty of vegetables and fruit and drink tons of water, but without the prune juice, I don't go at all!

I am completely addicted to Sabras hummus. I use baby carrots instead of crackers or chips...yummmmm!

In Topic: Ultrasound Results. Cysts On Ovaries.

07 February 2012 - 06:11 PM

I have a problem with cysts. I've had them in my face, breasts, and even had a giant liver cyst that had to be surgically removed (it was fused to my gallbladder, so that had to go too). Dr. said he had no idea why I had so many cysts or how one got to be the size of a soccer ball. Maybe it's related to celiac, I wasn't diagnosed at the time. So many things are related to celiac that I wouldn't be at all surprised :o

In Topic: My Husband Doesn't Get It

A lot of this just takes time. My boyfriend rolled his eyes at first, thinking I was just jumping on the "gluten free" bandwagon. Going to a restaurant became a source of stress when it used to be so enjoyable. He would roll his eyes when I asked if they had a gluten free menu. Now, three months later, he's the one that asks for a gluten free menu and talks to them about cross contamination. Slowly, my family members are coming around. I tell them that I wish I could eat what they're eating, but I feel so much better since I've given it up. I went to a super bowl party and told the hostess before I got there that I would be bringing gluten free food to share. I hated to bring it up at first, but now I don't have an issue and everyone I know knows about it and most are supportive (not at work though - for some reason it really bugs one guy I work with).

In Topic: Did Anyone Else Feel Super Bloated When They Started The Elimination Diet?

06 January 2012 - 07:10 PM

Bloating was a big issue for me. Some of it was because I was still ingesting some gluten without realizing it, some of it is withdrawal symptoms. I was bloated, dizzy, crabby and shaky. It didn't last long. The 2nd week was the worst, then it eased up.
