In Topic: Post Diagnosis Healing

15 March 2014 - 03:40 PM

I juice my raw veggies, and have smoothies sometimes . Struggled with salads for ages after dx. I also am dairy, corn, caffeine intolerant! Had lots of other intolerances too that slowly disappeared. Sugar used to bother me but I eat dark choc now. And loads of bananas!... If you know you made a few mistakes in the first couple of months then just discount them from healing time! It took me 9-12 months to feel any real difference. And now I can't stop putting on weight it's a real problem.. Seriously! I needed to gain weight also!
Keep with it, continue to eat clean! You'll be ok, I promise! It seems like a long road, but you'll feel better soon! Try juicing, your body will LOVE you for it!

I beg to differ with saying that vitamins are a scam. It's unfortunate that our lands are over farmed and that our foods contain at least 35% nutrition than 50 years ago. Add into that GM and Monsantos chemicals, and modern society's predisposition to eat highly processed food, you will find most diets highly deficient. I would also suggest you research the FDA and perhaps not place quite so much faith in an organisation that recently passed a new law exempting pharmaceutical companies any responsibility should their FDA approved 'medicines' cause injury or death.
Going back to vitamins and minerals, yes, adding to the fact that our diets mostly don't meet our requirements and that we are indeed celiac, I think we should be vigilant about our vit stats. Also, if considering taking vitamins, looking at colloidal form as opposed to 'tablets' or 'capsules' as colloidal passes straight through to the liver, ready to be utilised by the body.
I have taken Neways colloidal minerals, the improvement in my nails/skin in 3 weeks was great. There's proof in my pudding!

Gemini, I've been wanting to ask for 'your' celiac story for ages! You seem so well informed, and healthy now. I hope you don't mind me asking, but how did you get diagnosed, and what foods do you eat now? Do you have any intolerances or did you have any problems post dx? Hope you don't mind me asking :)

Thanks Gemini... Yes I think you're right. Fortunately I don't catch every germ my son has, just the nasty ones... And probably because we are very close!
I like the fact that you said celiacs have an over active immunity... My recent 'flu' lasted only 5 days ( the worst of it) and I felt much better (before catching another infection!)... Everyone said it wasn't flu as I had gotten over it so quickly! But I'm sure it was, I had every symptom, chills, shivers, cough headache etc, bedridden for 3 days!
Well, fingers crossed that there's no more illness, I'm sick of being sick!!! Thanks my lovelies
