October 2019

Well the end of this last month has given me some new perspectives and thoughts. Ever been in pain to the point where crazy, dumb, and bad ideas seem plausible? I am laying on the floor with the waves of pain thinking stuff like, Maybe if I take some Benzocaine gel put it in a capsule and swallow it I can numb this, perhaps I can mix it up in a enema? or the concept of wanting to reach up there...

So I have found some other issues I have found with my fracked up gut I thought I would share....rare anyone could relate to some of these but throwing it out there.

During these times my diet has to lack peppers, easy on tomatoes, garlic, and onions as well as be cooked super tender...

Diagnosed With Celiac at Age Twenty Months in 1939

"When our daughter DeLene became ill, there were only about ten known cases of Celiac in the United States. Fortunately, our pediatrician, Dr. Clifford Lamar, had treated two other Celiac patients and was able to discover immediately what was wrong. At that time a diet of bananas and whey of buttermilk mashed together was the only known cure for this disease.  DeLene was placed in a hospital fo...

    • Doing the Lord's work here, posterboy. When I get my next vitamin checkup I'm going to come ask for you by name! 😂

      "Christ has no body but yours,
      No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
      Yours are the eyes with which he looks
      Compassion on this world,
      Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good,
      Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world.
      Yours are the hands, yours are the feet,
      Yours are the eyes, you are his body.
      Christ has no body now but yours,
      No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
      Yours are the eyes with which he looks
      compassion on this world.
      Christ has no body now on earth but yours."

      (St. Teresa of Ávila, 1515 – 1582)

      The headaches could be triggered by something in her diet besides gluten. Over time, celiacs commonly develop allergies/intolerances to other foods besides those containing gluten. This is because of damage to the mucosal lining of the small bowel which allows larger than normal protein fractions to cross into the blood stream. We call this "leaky gut syndrome."

      Do the headaches happen after every meal?

      Are the headaches migraine class?

      Have you noticed any patterns with the headaches in regard to certain meals or foods your daughter is eating?

      Does she generally eat the same things for say, breakfast or lunch? Keep in mind that allergic reactions can happen up to a day from the time the allergen was consumed. It would be good to keep a food diary until you discover potential triggers to avoid.

      I might suggest you try a bland, simple diet centered around fresh meat and vegetables. Have her try a "low histamine" diet. You can look that up for more particulars but it would include avoiding things that are canned, pickled or aged/fermented. Many fruits and especially dried ones are typically high in histamines. I am a migraine suffer so I am speaking from some experience. "Fresh" is a key word here because essentially all foods increase in histamine content over time.

      Has your daughter started taking any new vitamins/supplements/meds are started using shampoo or other topical beauty aids that might contain gluten? Some people are are really gluten sensitive and can get reactions transdermally.

      I agree. I have a bunch of auto immune diseases, (including Celiac and Type 1 Diabetes and Hashimotos and Reynauds and Sjogrens and NLD...) and recently learned I also have a mast cell activation syndrome with gi presentation. The mast cell episodes are usually triggered by histamines. The histamines in red wine, tomatoes and aged/jarred foods like roasted red peppers etc as well as dried fruits  would be triggers for my symptoms. Often symptoms from histamines would turn up between 3 and 4 am when histamine levels naturally rise during the night. ANYWAY, now that I am taking an antihistamine and some other mast cell stabilizing meds and avoiding the food triggers/(histamine rich food and drink) I am doing much better with these 4 am g.i. disasters. All this to say that you may want to take a look at histamine rich foods and see if they are symptom triggers. I had thought these symptoms I was having were because I was getting gluten-poisoned, but in fact my antibodies were perfect (b/c I am gluten-free!) despite ongoing episodes. It took months to figure out, but I am much healthier now that I avoid histamines. Hope you can figure out some triggers!
