In Topic: I Believe This Guy... Gluten Free May Not Be Enough

23 April 2013 - 06:07 PM

I'm glad my post has sparked a conversation.  My excitement over this video was not to promote the SCD diet.  I was simply motivated by the idea that recovering Celiac patients might need to remove more than just gluten for a while.


I have found that I have an extreme reaction now to certain foods (Not Just Gluten.)  It seems most heavily associated with broken down sugars.  The worst was from onions in a soup that cooked (caramelized) in my crock pot for 8+ hours.  But also chocolate and some gluten-free cereals with sugar as an ingredient.  


I don't need to follow the diet the video is "selling," but as I listen to my body I'm finding foods i'm sensitive to (hopefully temporarily).  I plan to remove the foods I find offensive as I heal.  This video helped excite me to listen to my body more carefully.  The part on removing sugar certainly sparked an epiphany when I realized it wasn't the onion I was reacting to, but the sugar in the onion.


Most importantly for me is the fact that my 95% of my brain fog is gone!  SOOOOOOO DEBILITATING!!!!!!


My advice to any recovering celiac patients is to listen to your own unique body.  


Oh,  and by the way I'm a "he."

I have "Brain Fog" as well.  It is the symptom that got me going down the road to self diagnosis.  It is debilitating.  It influences my ability to interact with new people, it couples with anxiety, and makes me depressed because I just want to feel "normal."

I'll keep an eye on it.  Something in my morning routine seems to be giving me slight symptoms.
