hmm, sorry about that, i guess it didn't post everything. I was wondering if an all organic non processed food diet would be the way to go....I know about the naturally gluten free foods but I don't know much about putting together a non processed meal or anything...can anyone help???

I have an early morning dentist appointment and all i can help wondering is if my stomach is going to be alright......i hate letting this disease run my life....

You can stick to plain meat, fruit and veggies for a while and see if that helps. I would cut out dairy too. I wouldn't eat any bread products either ~ made with rice, potatoes, etc. Just a plain, natural diet and see if that allows you to heal. :) You might want to read the book: Breaking the Vicious Cycle. It really helped me. Feel better!!! :)

Did you try eliminating all dairy products? Many people with celiac disease are temporarily lactose intolerant until their intestines heal. If you have been on the diet for awhile, casein (the milk protein) or soy intolerances are some things to look into.

I don't know a definitive answer, but I can say that the best I've felt in the last 4 years were the two times I ate only whole unprocessed foods, with no wheat or barley at all and very little grains overall (didn't even know I was Celiac).

I think Kimberly gave some good suggestions. What exactly are you eating on a typical day and what specifically are your symptoms?

Honestly, I barely eat anymore....when I do i make sure that it is known gluten free stuff that i can eat and still sometimes that doesn't even work.

I agree about the advice to keep your diet simple and avoid, at least for now, the processed things, grains, dairy and soy. I'm taking my own advice here--I'm currently cutting out the packaged foods, and the grains including rice and see how it goes. I'll be sticking to meat, veggies., fruit, good oils and nuts and see if it makes a difference. We could keep each other posted? Hope you feel better soon :)

You may just need more time to heal before you notice results. I was sick for about 6 months on the gluten free idet before I starteded noticing improvements. In the meantime, you may want to try eating foods that are easy on your stomach. So try and avoid eating foods that may be harder to digest like potatoes, dairy, soy, ect.
