Question On Recovery

Recommended Posts

Hi guys - I remember reading another thread on this at some point but I wanted to ask this question and see how some of you respond.

I was diagnosed in September and as far as I can tell my digestive issues have cleared nicely since going on the diet. However, this winter has been a real &*!@# for me. I have 3 little ones (one who just started her first year of kindergarten and one who just started preschool) and it seems like the kids and I have been sick alot this season - like constant colds or just feeling run down. I'm wondering if that's because of my "celiac" recovery or it's just a coincidence with the kids....

Anyone's advice? :D

Probably a coincidence with the kids. Kids are little germ spreaders. There has been lots of colds and flu going around this year and kids are at school with other little diseased ones. It is just like lice, you will never have lice until your kids go to school then, you will get it because of they got it from other kids.

The kids are probably bringing every germ home with them. My husband has had three major colds this past winter but I have had none. I take a daily acidelphous (sp) and do so every single day. It used to be that I always caught his colds. I also take vitamins every morning. You might put the kids on yogurt to boost the good things in their bodies and an acidelplous for you. I am sure someone else will post that is more an expert then I am.

I second the yogurt, my mom, ever the mama lion, made us eat lots of yogurt and garlic (thankfully not together) during cold season, and then gatorade, chicken soup, and more yogurt when we were sick.

In February my neices flew out to see her and one of them had a stomach bug. When I talked to my neice a few days later she said, "I was sick, but Nana gave me and Jordie (her twin) yogurt and now we're all better."


Alright, don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy

We'll all float on, alright

Well we'll float on good news is on the way...

I personally can't stand to eat yogurt (had it almost every day in high school - because I could eat it)...but my daughter loves the little Yoplait yogurts. They come in six packs - 3 of one flavor, 3 of another. And they're just the right size for little tummies. They have characters on them too - Blues Clues and Dora are the two I've seen. My daughter's favorites are Strawberry yogurt and Banana yogurt (yes - two separate flavors - not Strawberry-Banana). She doesn't have Celiac (to our knowledge yet) - so I'm not sure if these yogurts are "safe" or not....I can't imagine why they wouldn't be though. Double check to make sure if your kids have Celiac.
