  1. Yes, liquid vitamins could be better, thank you : )
  2. Kidney Pain

    Thank you all for your comments and opinions, much appreciated
  3. Hello I'm going through a gluten accident with lots of symptoms, pain being the worst. I am finding that supplements (an allergyfriendly multivitamin/mineral and anti-yeast supplements) are causing me the same pain as the original gluten pain. Does anyone else feel that certain food or supplements hurt or cause digestive issues when you have been glutened? Right now my intestine feels very raw, like a big open wound.
  4. Kidney Pain

    Thank you so much to both of you for answering. I did a selftest bought at the pharmacy and it showed protein and blood in my urine. I have previously been checked for infection which was negative so the doctor doesn't know what the cause is. So I thought perhaps it is caused by gluten accidents.
  5. Hi When I accidentally eat gluten, I first get intense burning pain in the stomach area, but then my kidneys start to hurt bad also. To me this is weird. Could the pain and inflammation from the small intestine spread to the kidneys? Has anyone else experienced this?
  6. Hello I recently received the VSL#3 unflavoured kind which I ordered from the UK. And was disappointed to see that it had a warning on both the box and individual sachets which I hadn't noticed when I placed the order: 'Warning: this product contains traces of gluten, soy, lactose and skimmed dehydrated milk.' They have basically put traces of ALL the most common allergens in one product! To me this is unbelieveable as many people who need such megadoses of probiotics have very sick digestive systems and most probably suffer with multiple allergies......such as myself. So YES, VSL#3 DOES CONTAIN GLUTEN FYI in case there are several manufactureres of VSL#3 out there. The manufacturer on my VSL#3 is: S.I.I.T srl, Italy.
  7. How To Unsubscribe?

    I've tried for several days now to unsubscribe from the message board and celiac.com on a whole......with no success!!! Scott told me very briefly what to do, when this didn't work, he just repeated himself. Easy to register, but no way out again..........
  8. Hi All! I can't seem to find an option for unsubscription..... Thanx, Misa
  9. Hi all! I'm doing really well. I still follow the main SCD outlines, but have the occasional starches such as rice and gluten-free bread. What really allows me to eat starches without problems is the amount. Previously I'd eat large portions of anything really, including starches. Now I've reduced every meal and have 4 small ones instead of 3 large ones. This seems to make my digestive system very calm and content Hope you guys are well too..... Misa
  10. Hi Connielynn38 Having problems with what one would assume is innocent rice, is what led me to try the SCD. I knew something was wrong when I couldn't even have plain rice without feeling bloated and gassy! Now I can eat potatoes and rice about twice a week with no problems whatsoever The rest of the time I stick to SCD guidlines (don't wanto push my good luck). Hope you manage to try the diet 100% out and hopefully you too can later enjoy these foods again.... Hi Jen Yep, the same question was posted by LisaR on page 12 with answers on page 12 and 13 Misa
  11. Hi Smunkeemom This link should keep you all busy in the kitchen ......... http://www.scdiet.org/2recipes/indexa.html Misa
  12. I had endometrioses about four years ago. The surgeon told me it was the worst case she had ever operated on She also said it would return if I didn't start with strong hormones. I knew I wasn't going to start messing my system further with artificial hormones, so I did research on natural cures. I don't normally recommend books, but this is like a bible for anyone with endometrioses. It's called Endometrioses - A Key To Healing Through Nutrition by Dian Shepperson Mills. I upped my own progesterone levels (usually too low in endo) by taking zinc and B6 the second half cycle and limited refined carbohydrates, sugar, red meat and milk. I also took digestive enzymes between meals as these take away any debris placed where it shouldn't be.....such as outside the colon. I haven't had endo since the operation Misa
  13. Hiya Brenda.....and Welcome Is it ok if I ask how long you stayed on the SCD previously. I'm just thinking if you stayed on the SCD (with your modifications of course) for a little while, maybe you soon could tolerate more and more food. Boy, I never thought I could eat cheese and nuts (yikes!) so soon, but it happened. I really hope you see results quickly so you can expand your diet and enjoy Take care, Misa
  14. Hi Matilda Yeah, it's funny how pleased you can get from having something as normal BM's The time spent on cooking is really up to you. I don't like cooking at all, but therefore I eat bland (boring) food. Again, it's kind of what you make out of it. So happy you're trying the SCD! It would be great if you updated for all to see how you're doing, good or bad......hopefully it's all good. Best of luck, Misa
  15. Norway

    Hi Lisa Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but glutenfree in Norway is the same as eating wheat starch . There are no breads, neither in the grocery store, cafes or health stores made with alternative grains. We do have glutenfree rice-crackers in the grocery store and the healthfood stores have (very) sweet biscuits made with maize. People in general have heard about celiac disease which does make things easier when ordering in restaurants. We also have glutenfree hamburgers in McDonalds, and the two major pizza places across the country, Dolly Dimples and Peppes Pizza, serve glutenfree pizzas. But again, the dough is made of wheat starch. I know you'll have a nice time here, it's an incredibly beautiful country with lots of fresh air and nature all around. Misa
