In Topic: How Long Until I See Positive Results?

Yeah it can takes months and even years if you've been on large amounts of gluten all your life (gluten basically works like a drug on your brain), also you have to make other dietary changes aswell to improve overall health. 


In Topic: Mental Health Improve Going Gluten Free?

Yes immensely, but it takes a long time for many people like myself. My brain had pretty much been addicted to gluten for all my life and to completely change that was a long process. If I  would eat some pasta now it basically causes some sort of mental breakdown for 24 hours where I get brainfog, signs of schizophrenia, random temper tantrums, addictive eating, sleep problems, adhd etc. certainly not worth the trouble. 


In Topic: Eating Gluten Again?

I would not reintroduce gluten into your diet. That stuff is just plain bad and will damage you both mentally and physically. I have tried to do so myself and have always suffered for it in the end. 


In Topic: I've Been Gluten Free For So Long, Yet I Still Get The Worst Stomach Aches

13 August 2015 - 06:58 AM

I recovered from severe IBS and stomach pains (after burnout and tooth infections) that had me bedridden and pretty much suicidal. I had to change my diet back and forth a million times before I realized what works. 
 
You have to ditch wheat ofc in all forms. then you have to avoid msg/yeast extract which also triggers stomach problems and overeating. no probiotics either, no yougurt which contains lactic acid and live bacteria that irritate the stomach. you also avoid lunch meats of all kinds (ham, sausages, bacon etc) with sodium nitrite which is terrible for the stomach. then you have to drink WATER and nothing else. no soda pop, no coffee, no beer, no wine, no juice, no tea, just plain water, sparkling or regular. You also avoid cheese which contains live bacteria and is a stomach irritant. what you eat is FRESH MEAT/FISH/CHICKEN (from frozen is fine) eggs and fresh milk. FRUITS, BERRIES and VEGETABLES (except cruciferous vegetables and leaves which contain antinutrients and are also stomach irritants). You eat carbs (POTATOES and other TUBERS, WHITE RICE is also fine but not brown rice (stomach irritant) and FAT (butter/cream, olive oil, coconut, mostly saturated is best) with every meal. milk chocolate, ice cream or some sweets are also fine after the meal in moderation. You keep the amount of nuts/seeds/peas/lentils to a minimum, these all contain antinutrients that irritate the stomach. You don't reheat leftovers in the microwave or elsewhere. It degrades the protein structure, dries out the food, and makes it harder to digest, inflammatory and decreases nutritional value. eat leftovers straight from the fridge in room temperature. 
 
You have to eat the sufficient amount of macronutrients (protein, fat and carbs) and micronutrients (minerals and vitamins) at all meals throughout the day. This will keep stomach acid at the appropriate levels and will also keep your metabolism at a high level which is very important to resolve stomach problems and health problems in general (your immune system only works properly when your metabolism is strong).
