  1. Yes the multi vitamin I'm taking has minerals. It's this one - http://www.wellnessresources.com/products/daily_energy.php#ingredients_dosage That multi vitamin doesn't have much potassium or calcium in it (and I'm not consuming dairy) so I'm also taking a calcium/magnesium citrate supplement.
  2. I've been off and on lifting weights. Need to get more discipline with that and do it at least 5 times a week.
  3. I've been gluten/dairy free since June 3rd and once or twice a day (usually after eating a meal) I get brief chills on my scalp. Have any of you experienced this or heard of it? I know chills can be a symptom of opiate withdrawal, and gluten has to do with these same opiate receptors right?
  4. What's a good non dairy probiotic? And do you know if acne can be a symptom of gluten withdrawal?
  5. Yeah I heard chlorella can be a little harsh. I think it's okay for me but I will pay close attention to that. Good idea with the go a few days without supplements. Tomorrow I'm not going to take any and I'll see if I feel better, worse, or the same.
  6. No prescriptions. My multi vitamin is safe. As is my toothpaste and mouthwash. I'm taking a fish oil supplement, a selenium supplement, a chlorella supplement, and some whole leaf aloe vera juice daily. Those 4 things are supposed to help with intestinal issues (and I made sure they were all safe). I also make sure I put a couple tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil in my smoothies and I also cook with coconut oil. The coconut oil is supposed to be good for the intestines as well.
  7. None. I make sure everything I eat is labeled gluten/dairy/soy free. I heard soy can cause similar problems as gluten.
  8. Correct. What's the difference between celiac and gluten intolerance or is it the same thing?
  9. I try to drink 8 glasses of water a day. I'm eating breakfast. Definitely eating a lot of protein and fruit, but not much veggies lol, only broccoli. It seems that about 3 or 4 hours after I wake up I start getting tired and then the tiredness just increases as the day goes on. Is that because my body is spending a lot of energy trying to heal?
  10. It seems as though the first 2 or 3 hours after I wake up I feel pretty close to normal. But as the day goes on the tiredness, extreme hunger, bloating, anxiety, headaches, and irritability seem to increase and by dinner time rolls around I feel like crap.
  11. The last time I ate cottage cheese (which contained gluten and obviously dairy) I got a terrible reaction which included suicidal thoughts. If you're saying I have to add back in these foods in order to get an accurate test result well then I'm not getting tested lol. I'll just continue on the gluten/dairy free diet and as time goes on if I feel better then I will have my answer, I don't need a silly test
  12. Okay so what type of doctor do I go to to get tested for a gluten and casein intolerance?
  13. I know I wont be eating the gluten or wheat when I get the skin prick test, but if it gets into my blood stream is that not the same thing as eating it? I am going to a food allergy doctor to find out for sure whether I'm allergic to gluten and dairy. Is that not the type of doctor I should be going to for this?
  14. Do you feel bad for a day? A couple days? A couple weeks? I ask because I've been gluten/casein free since June 3rd, and in July I'm going to an allergist to get the official diagnosis. I know they prick/inject you with a tiny bit of gluten/casein to see if you're allergic to it, so will this prick/injection set me back that much or should I not worry too much?
  15. I ate a bowl of gluten free cereal with gluten free peanut butter and this 100% fruit strawberry jelly mixed together. Within about 30-60 minutes of eating it I got 2 itchy bumps (hives?) on my right leg and I became super bloated. I also felt a little "out of it". And strangely enough the constant relentless hunger I've been experiencing the last week or so disappeared (temporarily I'm sure) after I ate that. The jelly is this brand - http://www.fruitoftheland.com/beitnosugar.html The only ingredients are strawberries, pineapple juice, lemon juice, and fruit pectin. It is not listed as gluten free. I've tried calling them, they never pick up. I'm also pretty sure I have candida albicans. Yesterday I consumed a lot of sugar (albeit from good sources like fruit, raw honey, etc) so I'm thinking I maybe overloaded my system with sugar and that's what caused this reaction?
