  1. I am trying to put all the pieces together. I have had a 2 1/2 year illness. During this period I started the transition of menopause (which seemed to set of the following), had a precancerous uterus and ovaries removed, diagnosed with celiac and trigonitis with interstital cystits symptoms, terrible hormonal flushes and nausea, botched colonoscopy, and terrible fatigue. I also found out I have a very low white blood count, malabsorbtion issues, and do not clear estrogen well and always much sicker around what use to be that time of the month. I am hoping someone else has had something similar and has advice to give about these issues. I am tired of being sick and tired!!!!!!
  2. I am new here and wanting to know if anyone else is eating the foods out of the "Breaking the Vicious Cycle" book. I have had Celiac symptoms my whole life, stopped eating gluten in 2000 on my own and just diagnosed in Jan, 2011. My whole digestive system is a wreck and my Dr found out I have other cross reactive foods that caused me to stay sick. I am off of all grains (including rice), raw fruit, and eating mostly plain meat, veggies except potatoes, corn, and peas, I can have raw honey, bananas, and some nuts. I am much better, but wonder when I will be well enough to try adding some of these items back in. Anyone else experiencing extreme reactions like these? I also wonder if our own home grown beef that is fed grain is not giving me some trouble. I have been very ill for over two years and will do anything to get well. I am 53 and have too much to do yet to stay sick. I still have bad days and have other issues like trigonitis with interstitial cystitis symptoms and am in full blown menopause because of hysterectomy for precancerous ovaries and uterus. Between the hormones going crazy and food issues my life has been turned upside down. Words of wisdom, sage pieces of advice, etc would do wonders for me. Also would like to hear from others with mulitple autoimmune diseases that seem to go with celiac. Any name of good Celiac books would also be appreciated. Just read Dr Peter Green's book and found out tons about celiac disease I don't think my doctors even know. Informative and good, but sorry the medical profession really doesn't have concrete answers or cure.
