She eats a lot of peanut butter, yogurt and cheese :D.  Unfortunately that doesn't help you.  Beans are good sources of protein.  She certainly has an interesting medical history and for the most part is healthy but still has some lingering issues, mostly D and migraines now so I'm thinking that Celiacs might be the last piece to the puzzle.  I'm actually really surprised she has not been tested already with everything else she has going on.

It took me 20 years to get them to test for celiac...so, I get that one!  I used to have major issues with headaches as well, and they have gone away 100%.  The D though...that's the battle!  I love yogurt and cheese...could totally live on that!!!  :D

Many medications are plant based and basically the same thing as the "natural" stuff you get from your homeopath.  Just because they are "natural" doesn't mean they are better so you may be having the same issues on those pills because they contain the same ingredients or some of the same ingredients in the medicine from the GI doctor.  Not knowing your history, have you been tested for allergies?  I know my daughter can not eat beef or chicken so maybe that is what is causing your problems and not the medications?  She is young and should have no issues losing weight and could not lose a pound, even with a good diet and lots of exercise (she is a college athlete).  She stopped eating beef and chicken and has lost 10 lbs and is back to her ideal weight.  She still has some issues with D and is being tested for Celiacs though.  I'm pretty confident she has it since I now do and I have the genetic pairs and she has way more symptoms than I do.

I haven't been tested for allergies, it was something the naturopath and I discussed.  I too am young, athletic, healthy, and have these 10 lbs that will not go away...so, I guess I better get tested for more foods than just the gluten!  This is so helpful, I've often wondered if one of the "healthy" foods I'm eating might be what the real issue is.  What does your daughter eat for protein now?  I'm not a big pork fan, so I'd be stuck with just turkey I suppose!  :)  I hope you get some answers with her, it sure has been a frustrating journey for me getting diagnosed.

The inflammx is supposed to be good. I would keep it, try adding the kyo and removing the enzymes for a week.


edit to add- Have you ever used ginger? It helps with my arthritis and it is supposed to help with inflammation in general. I take about a 1 inch piece of fresh ginger put it in a blender with a cup of water and puree the whole thing. I simmer it on the stove for a few minutes, add tiny bit of honey or sugar and strain it over ice. I like to add a squeeze of lemon too because lemon is supposed to be alkaline which is good.

He told me to only be on the inflammx for a month...not sure why??  I haven't tried ginger, but know all about how it can help.  I wasn't ever sure how to include it into my day, so thank you SO much for the suggestion!  I will start on that right away.

When it comes to food...I've tried it all.  Doesn't seem to matter what I do or don't eat, I have constant D - the colitis is out of control.  All my veggies are either steamed or roasted, keeping them soft.  My meals consist of a shake/smoothie in the morning with fruit and some coconut or almond milk, lunch is turkey or chicken with veggies and maybe some sweet potato and a few almonds for crunch factor, and dinner is a salad with turkey or chicken and more veggies.  It can't get any cleaner.  Obviously none of what the naturopath gave me is working...even though they all state they are gluten-free products.  I've tried the acidophulis and got no results, maybe I'll try the kyoduophulis instead.  I was hoping to find a natural way to calm down the inflammation internally...

Yes, it sounds like a pretty good report. Congrats! How long have you been gluten-free?

2 years, but everything still runs through me like water, my symptoms have actually gotten worse.  So yes...good news, but still no relief!  :rolleyes:
