#899328 Bloating - Help? :(

Posted by deb445 on 11 December 2013 - 08:23 PM

I think Diane hit it when she said other intolerance's , after going Gluten free I found I had a corn intolerance and it made me bloat and gassy .... So you may want to do a food diary. 

Oh yeah. The corn bloat. I sure don't miss it!

 

I also find that MSM helps reduce inflammation.

 

Best,

D

#899321 Pissed Off

Sorry to hear your pain.

 

In my experience, eliminating grain and eating wild game and grass fed animals has been an important part of my healing. I wonder how our overall health would change if we more frequently ate from the land again  - not the processed aisles of the mega box grocery stores?

#840984 Anyone Have Problems With Rice?

Posted by deb445 on 04 December 2012 - 06:00 PM

I cut out rice too (about a month ago) - I suspect that it was the driving force behind the "after lunch" fatigue that I thought I'd left behind. Cauliflower (pulverized by my potato masher) is a decent substitute. My husband actually said he kind of liked it. I was all for going grainfree, but resisted taking out rice and sorghum for a while. Equipped with meal plans, and lunch alternatives - it's not really that hard. There are manyPaleo recipes and blog sites out there! If you're looking for encouragement - I'd say go for it! You can always turn back if it's not for you.

#833661 Any Other Vegans With Celiac Out There?

Posted by deb445 on 31 October 2012 - 06:22 PM

My oldest son is *mostly vegan and grain-free. He is 5 years old, and never liked or consumed meat, even as a baby. Refused eggs. And reacted to dairy. I would sneak eggs into my baking, and used local organic honey for sweeteners. Finally, after years of frustration, I decided I would support him by joining him. Last year, I read the China Study, in an attempt to better understand where I was heading. Very interesting read. But, BBQ season started up again, and I caved. And then my son started eating BACON! Woo hoo! I have since read The Omnivore's Dilema, and we lean more towards a Paleo Menu nowadays. We source our meat and eggs from two biodynamic farms (each a stones throw away). One in particular, does not feed their animals corn in any form. They feed their chickens sprouted grains only. And ruminants are nurtured on a variety of grasses, the way they were intended to graze. I constantly worry about my *vegan getting ample nutrition, but I can't tube feed him. Meanwhile, I rejoice that he eats bacon, and enjoys my grainfree baking - with healthy eggs, and honey with plenty of enzymes.

#799251 Symptoms Are Back

Posted by deb445 on 29 May 2012 - 06:24 PM

After being Gluten free for over a month now I thought that my daugther has been symptom free. All of a sudden she started vomiting today. She is only 8 months old only eats gluten thru my breast milk. I did notice the rash start to appear about two days ago


My youngest (who spurred the whole gluten/dairy free diet in our family) had many symptoms that led me to try the elimination diet when breastfeeding (I bf until he was 2 yrs). Whenever I slipped up, he would pay the price with vomiting, constipation or the opposite, writhing in pain, and rashes that turned into open sores in any given location - head to toe. You've brought back memories that bring tears to my eyes. I was very hard on myself and it's been a long healing journey - not just the healing of our gluten sensitive bodies, but our spirit too. It was only after being glutenfree myself (for him), that I discovered that I had a big problem too. My bit of advice is to recognize and accept that living with a gluten sensitivity is sometimes trial and error. And I reassure myself that these accidental incidences of exposure are less harmful than going a lifetime without recognizing the damage that could have been incurred on a daily basis. My children and I still get exposed to gluten accidentally...we make it through together. You will too.
