In Topic: I Am New To This... Help

I really empathize with you, my dear! I'm fairly new to this too, just 5 weeks for me. At first it was really difficult to totally avoid gluten, but I'm learning more every day. You'll find it easier as you go along. Hang in there and know there are folks out here thinking of you and wishing you well.

Hello. I feel your pain! A few years ago, I got some really good indirect advice from a nurse who told my pastor's wife about a product I'd never heard of. It helped her so much she told me about it. I did a couple of days researching it on the web as I've had chronic stomach troubles for thirty years. Amazing! It was a Godsend. After a few weeks, I found it was cheaper and tastier if I cultured it myself. Anyways, whether I culture it or buy it already made, I truly believe it saved my life. When I finally first tried it, I'd had chronic diarrhea so bad for five days and nights that I could barely sit up and was severely dehydrated, as I could neither eat nor drink fluids. After just 2 cups of the stuff an hour apart, the diarrhea stopped and I recovered quickly. Then, just last year, I got sick with vomiting and diarrhea so bad I spent 13 days in the hospital with IV's and stomach pumps and massive amounts of drugs. Turns out I had over a hundred ulcers and erosions causing such inflammation that I was deathly ill. The doctors told me that had I not been drinking the miracle stuff, the ulcers would have caused me to bleed to death. I don't sell it or anything, I just use it and it's been like a miracle for me. It a probiotic that's like yogurt on steroids! It's great for almost any kind of digestive trouble from constipation to diarrhea to cramps and a host of other yucky stuff. I'd suggest if you want to try it, you read up on it. Just google it, that's what I did. It's called 'Kefir' and I've been using it for five or six years now.

Anyway, I truly hope you get better soon. I know how miserable you must be.
I wish you well.
