In Topic: No More Grains Either

When you start reacting to more and more foods it is often a sign of leaky gut syndrome.  This means that the membrane that lets digested food into the blood stream is not working properly and is letting partially digested food through.  Your autoimmune system reacts to this partially digested food as being "non-self"  and creates antibodies toward it, and there is another food you are reacting to.  This is usually not a permanent loss, but healing the gut is key.  I don't know what supplements you are taking, but if you are not already doing so I wold recommend a regime of probiotics, digestive enzymes and L-glutamine (to restore the good flora in your gut, supplement the enzymes your pancreas is producing to improve your digestion, and heal the gut). 

Yes the Naturopath that I saw did say I had leaky gut back in June.  I just started being able to tolerate probiotics 4 weeks ago.  I have been on Verdezyme for a couple of months and I used to take L-glutamine per Naturopath but I quit a while back because he said it was healed by now.  I'll start it again. Thank You!

Drop coffee if you haven't so far. It can irritate a healing gut.

Is tea OK?

Thanks did not know that.  With insomnia the last 6 months, I've been drinking about 3 pots to help me going through the day.


In Topic: Distended Belly While gluten-free

If its making you unconfertable, go off it for a while. yes, it will limit your diet even more, but is it worth the tummy troubles?

yes I will, I was just curious if this happened to anyone else after 4 months gluten free.

In Topic: Neurotransmitter Testing Results

Your body can not produce neurotransmitters without amino acids that you acquire from your food. Celiac Disease disrupts this process because your digestive system is not properly breaking down nor absorbing food.

As your digestive system heals from removing gluten you should begin to absorb nutrients better which will allow your body to breakdown food into the amino acids needed to produce neurotransmitters.

You mention eating soup and fruit. Do you have a sufficient amount of protein in your diet. It is difficult to get all the essential amino acids without meat - especially if you are having trouble with grains and legumes.

Were the supplements you were trying to take amino acids? I take amino acid supplements to help produce nor-epinephrine - the lack of nor-epinephrine is one part of the fibromyalgia pain puzzle. I've had good luck with "Source Naturals" brand as far as being Gluten, Dairy and Soy free -- if you can't tolerate the supplements you were given,
perhaps you can find out which amino acids were in them and purchase a different brand that you'd be able to tolerate. There are also supplements that have a combo of the essential amino acids - I don't take those anymore, but I think I used "Country Life" - any brand that doesn't contain your intolerances should be fine.

Good Luck :)

Yes I eat chicken with every serving or fish depending on what kind of soup I made. Plus the protein shake, I know that's what has gotten my mornings to be the best part of the day. So glad to know all this info, thank you so much! I'll compare the supplements he gave me to see what amino acids I need. Thanks!
