I have children that live at home and understand what hospital food would do to me.  Get a friend or your children (if they can do it) to bring food for you.

I did taper off gluten over a few days, longer if one counts the flavoring that I didn't read the label on.  My first tier was major food groups.  I didn't eat bread, or use any gluten flours in my cooking.  I got my kids to take certain large quantities of grains out of the kitchen.  There was a box of gluten in the pantry for a much longer time, but it wasn't being used.  Then I started being more concerned about cross contaminated goods in my food supply.  That meant I started calling companies about how they produced their products.  In this tier I checked my supplements, and had my family remove more grain products from the kitchen.  The next tier I checked my shampoo and conditioner (already gluten free!)  Oh, and last of all I checked pet foods, dish soaps, and laundry soap.  I recommend studying if you are in limbo or gluten challenge and beginning to switch minor products as soon as they need replacing.  Just don't forget to keep eating gluten until testing is done.

In Topic: Essential Oils / Body Oils

Thanks for that information as I sometimes use Aura Cacia and prefer to switch knowing that.  That aside I use several Aura Cacia oils in a diffuser and have not reacted to them except ones that I now know I am allergic to that oil. (Peppermint namely).  What particular oil did you have a problem with?  Are you having any allergies to almonds or nuts?  My health practitioner told me that it is common to have almond allergies.


I recently placed two orders to Ananda Apothecary, Boulder, Colorado.  The products smell very potent and work well for my purposes diffusing them.  The price seems less than Young Living and I can get 60ml bottles (and larger).  Young Living bottles are so tiny and expensive.  I feel that either company makes an excellent product.

Welcome AnnK,


It can be overwhelming at first, but the payoff is good!  Hang in there, learn (as you are trying to do) and walk and you will get somewhere.  Most of us spent some time crying in the grocery store.  There are many foods that are naturally gluten free such as fruits, vegetables, and meats.  Best wishes in healing.

I would consider corn and potatoes for sure.  They bloat me.  You might also try low foodmaps.  The link is to show symptoms and diet help for foodmaps diet.  This helped my bloat to subside.  You might also consider enzymes and probiotics if you don't already do those.
