  1. Hi all, I'm a nutritionist who specializes in food intolerance diets and am starting to advise people on the new book, The Serotonin Power Diet. It seems easy to do it gluten free and the idea that boosting your serotonin with carbs to turn off your appetite and to improve your mood seems like a great win-win situation. (It's also backed up by published studies from the likes of MIT...) Has anyone tried it yet gluten-free? Has it helped with initial cravings when weaning off gluten, since these initial cravings can be so intense? I'm be interested in your feedback so I can better help my clients with it. Thanks so much! - Alix Mayer ------------------------------------ Gluten-free since 1999 Food Intolerance-free since 2004 Negative celiac blood tests - 1999 Positive Enterolab gluten intolerance test - 1999/2000 Positive Food intolerance test - York/Optimum Health Resource Lab - 2004 Awaiting re-testing from York/OHRL - 2007 Diagnosed with: gluten intolerance, food intolerances, lupus, chronic lyme, high titers to HHV6 and EBV.

  2. Sorry to jump in on this thread late. I make high IgG antibodies to almost all the top 10 food allergens and avoid them all! I am very adventurous in what I do eat, and enjoy that, thank goodness. I just wanted to say that there are many supplements you can take to heal your gut to lessen the food intolerances. A rotation diet is always a good idea. Probiotics are an important supplement and, handily, probiotics manufacture B vitamins in the gut, including some B12. A good probiotic that is allergen-free is: Ultimate Flora Critical Care. Other supplements to reduce food intolerance reactions: quercetin 30 minutes before meals, digestive enzymes with a meal, proteolytic (sp?) enzymes for food-antibody complexes in blood, Vitamin C, L-glutamine to help repair the gut. Some also report MSM helps. Food Allergy Relief by Dr. Braly is a good book (he's the co-author of Dangerous Grains written by Ron Hogan who write a lot for celiac.com.) Finally, addressing yeast/bacterial overgrowth (if this is a problem) with other supplements will help heal the gut. Some supplements for this purpose are: capryllic acid and grapefruit seed extract. There are many others,and sometimes a prescription for nystatin will help, as well. I'm trying to reduce my food intolerances to enjoy a wider variety of foods while maintaining the health gains my diet gives me. Hope you can enjoy some more foods, too. Good luck!
