Question about other food intolerances after going gluten free

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,  I have a question about vegetable intolerances, I have searched online but can't find any answers so wondered if anyone here might know.

Since going gluten free a year ago I have developed problems with a lot of other food including vegetables. I'm planning a Candida cleanse and part of that includes drinking vegetable/chicken broth. If I made a vegetable broth that included things I can't actually eat (carrots, onions, cabbage to name a few) would I still be intolerant to the broth or is it just the nutrients from the vegetables that is extracted into the broth? 

Thanks for reading!

You would still get sick.  I still can not tolerate onion, garlic or anything in that family though I did regain dairy!    ☹️  Make the broth without those items that you can not tolerate.  I think cutting out carbs/sugar is probably key to reducing fungus.  They love carbs, so reducing them should help if you have a candida issue.  

Have you had a celiac follow-up testing?  That might be in order if you are still experiencing symptoms.  It would at least rule out that celiac disease was the root cause.

Thanks for bringing this up. I have the same issue even after 10 years gluten free. I am on the FODMAP  diet to reduce gas and it as helped. Also had genetic blood test for MTHR gene and was positive meaning I can no convert folic acid so must take 3000mcg l-methylfolate daily. From my research actually eating things with folic acid (including all processed foods enriched) cause me a lot of trouble. Research about veggies shows many have trouble and am looking into fermented foods. Trouble is most are made from veggies I can not tolerate or use yeast and I have to make sure it is not grown on rye. A probiotics daily and no sugar cured my Candida. I eat brown rice, sweet potato and amaranth everyday so I believe healthy non processed carbs are nutritious and safe. I can tolerate cooked green beans and peas. At diagnosis I could eat anything. Going gluten free I became intolerant and for ears could only eat 10 foods while I healed. Just had pill cam and colonoscopy. Was perfectly healed. I was surprised after reading so much about possible perm damage. I am 49  and had symptoms for 20 yrs before diagnosis. Let me know if you crack this puzzle. I will keep looking.

Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any.

In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables. 

As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.
