Hi CelesteT, sorry I didn't see your question about being a vegetarian and trying GAPS until now. The GAPS diet would be very difficult to do as a vegetarian and indeed the doctor who wrote the book advises against being vegetarian. Fish stocks are included in the diet and are very healthy for most people, so I think that would be a good way to start!
CelesteT replied to David's topic in Gluten Intolerance and BehaviorHi Everyone, I've just joined tonight & this is my 1st post....I just had to add to this one! I have a terrible time with alcohol & I've never understood why until recently. I have asthma, allergies, anaphylaxis & GI (just diagnosed). Since my diagnosis, I have tried to reduce my alcohol intake to just potatoe Vodka - but that can be difficult to get hold of & when I'm out with friends or at a party, it's tough! I'm vegetarian, gluten intolerant & now I have to ask bartenders for potatoe vodka, lol, I feel like such a bore!!! A few night's ago I allowed myself to be talked into having a couple of glasses of red wine, it went to my head immediately & I foolishly was so 'merry' I drank a couple more glasses - I can't remember what happened next, but from what I was told it wasn't pretty! I was staying the night at my friends place & came rushing into their room in the early hours of the morning insisting someone was in the house, they got up & checked, no-one was there, so I then rush into the arms of there flatmate & started to cry *blush* - I can't remember any of this & when I woke the next day I was in agony. I literally couldn't even get out of bed until 7pm the following evening....even then I was shakey & very vulnerable. I made my way home got into bed & slept for another 13hrs, my whole system felt full of poison. Does anyone else here have that kind of reaction to wine/red wine? I've noticed that it is by far the worse drink for me...I can get drunk very quickly with it & it takes me two full days at least to recover from it. I'm not talking about a huge quantity either & I make sure I eat food & drink water etc. They say wine is ok for GI & Celiac, but I don't agree at all...I guess it's just trial & error.
