Nightshades and Celiacs

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! So after years of hearing my mother in law talk (what I thought was craziness) about nightshade veggies, after being diagnosed with celiacs, I did some more research. This is just an informative article, but a lot of stuff I have read has said that gluten intolerant people who still have been having a hard time with symptoms find success in eliminating nightshade vegetables!! It helped with the nerve pain, joint pain, headaches, etc.

I have the worst time with tomatoes. Potatoes are noticed if they are too often and bell peppers are fine. With how bad I react to tomatoes, I can't believe I can't fully eliminate them. It's crazy. I am gluten free, cow dairy free, soy free with no problem but tomatoes - I cheat, oranges too - close to same reaction but still cheat a few times a year. I am so frustrated with myself.

I have some issues with raw peppers and tomatoes, but roasting them to a mush or zapping them in the microwave makes them really easy on my stomach NO clue why but zapping them even in a sauce form, after 2mins they no longer bother me....and oddly enough due to the low carb nature of them and how cheap they are. They are actually a staple of my diet. -_- i admit I react them, but I can not remove them. SO limited already, no grains, no starches, no fruit, no dairy, no soy, I can not digest meats.....and gluten is obviously a no.

Funny if I eat peppers raw I know I will be feeling sick in 30-40mins.

Isn't it crazy how these things have so much affect on our body? I am also a little weary on eliminating stuff I don't have to. Its a common trend that once you fully eliminate something, trying to push it back into your body makes for one not so happy body!!
