Halitosis And Body Odor...feeling Embarrassed...please Help!

07 March 2015 - 04:42 AM

so March 10th will mark two years gluten-free, and I feel so much better!  However here's what's going on...


I'm dating this great guy but earlier this week he told me that my breath and body odor really turn him off.  I'm an extremely hygienic person...brush and floss at least twice a day, shower once a day, wear deodorant...so when he told me, quite honestly I was shocked and dumbfounded  :( I ended up crying in front of him, and I am NOT a crier.  It didn't seem to scare him off, and I could tell he felt really bad, but at the same time despite having my ego bruised, I'm glad he told me.  


He asked me if it could have anything to do with being gluten-free, and I said I didn't think so, but now I'm not so sure.  Before going gluten-free, I always had a thick white coating on my tongue, but since going gluten-free that has pretty much disappeared.  


I've never liked using mouthwash because it burns my mouth, but in the last few days I've used it, I'll notice I'll be good for about an hour, but then I get my normal taste back in my mouth.  My nose is still continually stuffed up, and I've read that having sinus problems can contribute to halitosis, but I don't know why it's stuffed up.  I always have to breathe out of my mouth instead of my nose.  My GP's suggestion was to take Zyrtec all the time...not doing that.  


I'm just so frustrated because I feel like I keep trying to fine tune my diet, but then something else gets out of whack.  I don't want to take pills continuously for anything, I just want my body to cooperate.  Does anyone have any natural remedies to suggest?


ETA:  According to my endoscopy report, I have a medium-sized hiatus hernia in my stomach.

Target And New Udi's Offerings For Cheaper Than Local Grocery Stores

13 February 2015 - 03:03 AM

I'm not sure if it's in all Target stores, but in the two near me in Delaware (Brandywine and Christiana Mall locations) have started selling all of these http://udisglutenfre...y/frozen-meals/


I've seen these in several grocery stores locally, but Target sells them for $1.50-$2 cheaper.


These Targets are also carrying WOW brand cookies as well.  http://www.wowbaking.com/


Because I needed another reason to love Target  :lol:

Glutened-Little Vent

04 December 2014 - 08:11 AM

I've been strictly gluten-free since March 2013 and to my knowledge have only been glutened three times.  Unfortunately I'm still feeling the effects of the third one.  I can't pinpoint it exactly, but I think it either came from Thanksgiving dinner or Black Friday lunch out.  


In general I have delayed reactions.  I read about people knowing they've had gluten within a half hour, but that's usually not my case.  Instead on Sunday morning I woke up with a killer hangover except I hadn't had a single thing to drink, and I've woken up with one each morning, but thankfully they've been reducing in intensity.  I've had periods of brain fog, kidney pain and the dreaded C so I took some magnesium.  My intestinal area is so tender.  Drinking large amounts of water only makes me feel more bloated even though that's what I've been doing since that's what suggested.  I feel huge even though the scale only says a three pound gain.  I know the effects are being enhanced because it's that time of the month too, but I also know that so many of these things have not been happening monthly, and that most of it is from the glutening.  I ended up taking the day off from work, which I never do, but my body just needed the rest.  I can't believe I used to live like this daily, and think it was all normal.  Thanks for letting me vent, and now it's time to go back to sleep.  This too shall pass...

I Love Wawa!

15 November 2014 - 06:56 AM

so living in the northern Delaware/Philly area, Wawa convenience stores are all around!  They really stock some great on the go things for the gluten-free crowd.  They've started carrying Krave jerky and Wai Lana yucca chips.  My favorite flavors are the black cherry pork bbq for the jerky, and the herb and garlic for the Wai Lana chips.  Maybe two months back I sent them a nice e-mail letting them know I appreciated that they carried these products and other products that were convenient for those of us with celiac disease/NCGS, and then they sent me a small gift card for my positive comments.  That was something I wasn't expected, but it made their value go up even higher.  Their restrooms are always clean, so I know I can wash my hands before eating whatever I buy.  I promise I'm not a Wawa spokesperson, but my friends tell me I should be along with Wegmans because I love Wegmans too  :D

Angry Orchard Cinnful Apple

18 October 2014 - 04:28 AM

Angry Orchard has a seasonal flavor called Cinnful Apple, which is a cinnamon apple tasting cider.  It is delicious, and my favorite kind of alcohol because it doesn't taste like alcohol.  I highly suggest it!
