I went Daiiry & Soy free the beginning of December and I am staying off at least 3-4 months before I re-add any back just in case.

Maybe you should go back off Dairy for a longer period of time Doll...

be well! B)

Don't eat the same things every day - it's the worst thing you can do. You should be rotating the foods you eat, having different things and only eating the same things several days or a week or more apart. The more varied the diet, the better we are for it.

the reason why gluten/wheat becomes such a problem in the first place is that because it is in so many foods we have an over-exposure to it. whilst we may start with a gluten-intolerance, over a period of time and continued exposure, if we have the genetic vulnerability, we will end up with full-blown Celiac.

If you continue to ingest the same foods all the time, because of the over-exposure to these foods the same thing may happen and you will end up with intolerances to these foods as well.

Many who are celiac also find that they are very intolerant or even allergic to foods or factors other than gluten and dairy. The triggers can be anything. I have only recently started gluten-free and I am still working through other intolerances. So far I have found Dairy, Yeast, Tannins (no tea or wine) and possibly Salicylates (I can't tolerate too much veg).

It could be that you are still eating or using something else that is causing the problem. I know its boring, but it might be worth trying the Elimination diet so that you can get a handle on what is causing it.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

It often does take time to actually feel better, however it is worth it in spades.

You might want to dial back on the rice. I can't eat it every day myself despite not eating much gluten for years. It actually has a small amount of gluten in it.

The trail lmix might also be suspect. Even if it doesn't have gluten in it it probably has lots of sugar...plus some folks like me have difficuilty with nuts due to leaky gut that usually accompanies celiac. The nuts are often irritants since they are hard to digest in any case. Its better if you soak them overnight to get rid of the growth inhibitors. It makes them more available as food for you no matter what to slightly sprout them.

I suggest you try yams, sweet potatoes, squash, and/or alternative grains like quinoa (you have to wash it first. to make sure its OK since it also has a growth inhibitor), teff (originally from Ethiopia) and amaranth. Just have the rice say twice a week (i.e., with a couple of days in between) and make sure its brown whole grain stuff.

Also I suggest you try some detox herbs etc. And some enzymes like bromelain/papain. See my posts elsewhere for more on this and other supplements. Alternatively or in addition lots of exercise, suanas, etc. And mucho water.

Wow--though--dial soap is way too strong for me. Are you sure its OK for you?? I'd use some peppermint castille soap instead just to be on the safe side.

    Hi, Thanks for your answer! Unfortunately I have to follow the MAOI diet for as long as I'm taking the MAOI, so essentially nobody's going to be inviting me round to dinner from now on… This is a bit of a shock. I don't really have any clear-cut symptoms that I would've considered worth going to the GP about. I mean I'm always tired and I have a bit of IBS and so on but generally I put that down to the other things wrong with me and the medication I have to take for them (mostly the bi
    Thanks Posterboy, that was interesting information.  I believe that I had read something elsewhere about tetracycline, at least, being used instead of, or along with, Dapsone for severe or refractory cases of DH. Unfortunately, even if I had medical insurance (which I do not), and had a regular doctor who was even willing to recognize and accept my condition for what it is, I don't know what kind of luck I would have in persuading that hypothetical doctor to give me a particular and non-sta
