  1. Hi all, I haven't been searching forums for celiac solutions for months now ... but I figured I should come back to these forums to let everyone know what helped me. Basically, I found that cutting wheat out wasn't enough for me. All grains caused an issue, even though it was exceedingly hard to trace my problems back to grains - because my effects would be experienced so far after meal time. Now I eat only raw fruits and vegetables and follow the 80/10/10 lifestyle (as described by in a book by Dr Douglas Graham) ... I no longer experience _any_ negative physical effects. Please ask me any questions if you'd like. Best of luck to everyone.
  2. I can tell you from my experience -- this WORKS. completely, completely works. I have Celiac and IC... and every day I would experience sharp, jolting pain in my abdomen... like someone was taking a knife to it and scratching. For over a year, I've been Gluten free and it's helped but not insanely... I've always been waiting for the symptoms to go away while eating cereals and grains and flax and roots.. all kinds of foods I thought I shouldn't be suspicious of. I'm just beginning out on this... but anything to make the pain go away.. I don't mind at all being on this for life. It's not life unless you're healthy! And I've never had more energy, clarity, ease within my body than on this diet. If you are thinking about... you should definitely try it!!!
  3. Specific Carbohydrate Diet

    Thanks! I am having great success so far with it... it makes perfect sense to me. About 3 days ago I was still feeling scratching and pain in my abdomen but now I am without pain! Still bloated, but I hope healing. Here is an relevant, fascinating article: http://www.scdiet.org/7archives/scdceli1.html "Whatever happened to the cure for coeliac disease?"
  4. I am about to start the SCD diet because there are raving reviews (~270) on Amazon about how it gets rid of all the symptoms of Celiac. http://www.(Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned)/Breaking-Vicious-Cycle-Intestinal-Through/dp/0969276818 I was wondering if anyone here has tried it? I'm very excited.
  5. I found this highly informative and thought I would share it with yall : ) http://www.canibaisereis.com/download/celiac-disease-surprises.pdf
  6. Very Frustrated

    Actually gluten does stay in your ""gut"". I would link to pages but this site seems to be suspicious of linking. Just do a simple search. It sticks to the walls of your intestines and also fills in pockets of the villi -- it can last there for a very long time, and rots as it sits there, causing more illness. Cleansing your gut is imperative.
  7. Try activated charcoal to absorb it so it just passes through your gut!!
  8. Very Frustrated

    You should look into taking digestive enzymes to break down the gluten that is already in your gut. And also I use Triphala and it works wonders at cleansing the gut. Also - your tiredness might be coming from a thyroid condition because folks with gluten sensitivity often have a weakened thyroid because this is an autoimmune disorder.
  9. Am I A Wimp?

    No you are not a wimp! I work from home and took 7 months off of work right after I got diagnosed.
  10. I have had extreme gluten sensitivity for 6+ years and only figured it was gluten as of last year. I've just lived with immense pain in my GI tract and depression and low energy and anxiety and the rest. I've been avidly trying to clean myself ever since then. And I've picked up some info along the way that I'd like to share. Everyone should listen to this radio show about Celiac and Gluten Sensitivity by Dr. Thomas O'Bryan http://www.blogtalkradio.com/undergroundwellness/2010/07/08/gluten-sensitivity-and-celiac-disease-with-dr-thom The things he says in there are stunning. If you have Celiac you are twice as likely to die at any age than anyone without Celiac. Gluten intolerance is an autoimmune problem -- thereby your immune system is attacking itself. Memory B cells are stored in your blood which are on the lookout for gluten. If you intake gluten just once a month you weaken your immune system by 600% in comparison to not intaking it at all. This is because you immediately activate all those antibodies and they flood your body ready to fight. For every 1 person with GI tract problems, there are 8 people with "silent" symptoms from gluten - depression, panic attacks, seizures, skin rashes, impaired immune function, joint problems, thyroid problems, impaired learning, the list goes on. 50% of people with gluten intolerance also have lactose intolerance because their lining is shredded and they are unable to produce lactase. To heal my gut I've first used this formula which is magical at removing Candida and parasites : Healthforce Intestinal Parasite Formula http://www.healthforce.com/shop?page=shop.product_details&flypage=garden_flypage.tpl&product_id=50&category_id=4 It was really magical.. I cannot say much else. Use it in conjunction with the Intestinal Drawing Formula http://healthforce.com/shop?page=shop.product_details&product_id=54&flypage=garden_flypage.tpl&pop=0 which will draw everything it touches out of your intestines.. it is totally imperative as gluten is a heavy protein and will just stay there and stay there for ages. Undigested. And when you do a cleanse, all your gluten symptoms will come back because the gluten will start to move around in your bowels. It's also essential to use Digestive Enzymes to eat and digest the old gluten in your gut and well as probiotics to repair the flora and damaged climate in the intestines. I use L-Glutamine too to repair the lining cells but cannot speak directly of its effects. MSM I find to be excellent for relieving spasms in the gut and soothing the tissue.. and my mood. (I also make tea of Slipperly Elm and Marshmallow Root for this) In Chinese Herbal Medicine, I use the Herbal formula Jia Wei Xio Yao Wan ... Free and Easy Wanderer.. which is generally safe for anyone to use.. it really helps make bowel movements and get gas going through the bowels. I believe in TCM this helps solve the Wood element attacking the Earth element.. but I'm not an expert in these matters. Finally... because gluten intolerance is an auto-immune disorder, you NEED TO CHECK YOUR THYROID! most likely your metabolism slowed down and you are experiencing hypothyroid symptoms -- look them up. they include depression and low energy and coldness and a foggy mind. No one could hurt from adding a little iodine to their diets to return the thyroid back into health. I hope this helps someone!
  11. Folks with gluten intolerance are EXTREMELY sensitive ... forget it if others don't get it.
  12. Metabolism...

    I'm with clarieyb on this one. Check your thyroid again. It controls your metabolism. I'm not sure what tests they took but just because you don't show up with a thyroid disease doesn't mean you have thyroid problems - which usually are difficult to detect in external symptoms beyond fatigue, depression, and low metabolism. http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/iodine12345/ Also note that celiac ends up being an autoimmune disorder as your body begins to attack itself in order to get rid of the gluten protein. It ends up damaging your thyroid a lot and could easily have caused Hashimotos Disease -- and weakened your thyroid. http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/hashimotos/
