  1. Low Energy

    I have never heard of stinging nettle infusion. Can you tell me where you purchase it and how many times a week you drink it. I want to give it a try and see if it helps my energy level. Thanks! Melissa
  2. Getting Up All The Time?

    pturse I also had that problem, getting up 3-5 times a night to use the restroom. My doctor suggested that this could be caused from other food intolerances and I have tried to really watch my diet besides gluten. I basically have tried to exclude nuts, dairy, corn and gluten and I have stopped getting up at night. This is the first time in years that I have not gotten up to go to the restroom all night and it is great!!!! The other night I ate some popcorn without thinking and I was up half of the night. I also get night sweats and these have stopped unless I eat something I shouldn't. Hope this helps! Melissa
  3. Hemp Hearts

    Has anyone ever tried these hemp hearts? My energy is extremly low, although I really try to stay gluten-free. If they work I am want to purchase them but I don't want to spend more money on something that does not make a difference. Does anyone have any other suggestions on getting your energy back up...I feel like I am 90 years old half of the time. Thanks!
  4. I have been experiencing extreme fatigue, muscle twitches, foggy brain, staring spells, body stiffness, aching body, head itching and loose stools for quite some time. I have been to many doctors and have not received any help. Recently a friend told me about celiac disease and I stopped eating anything with gluten in it. Since the change in diet I feel so much better. Can anyone tell me if they have experienced any of these symptoms? I have read that with celiac disease, it greatly affects your stomach and it is not my main symptom. I had loose stools but not severe diarrhea. I am not sure if I should see a doctor for confirmation or just continue the diet as long as I am feeling better. Thanks in advance for your help!
