  1. Thanks for the advice. I have gone through all of my suppliments, beauty products and have gotten a new toaster, pans and cooking utensils. I am just thinking it is going to take a long time to heal. I use to have "D" up to 20 times a day. Now having it 5 times a day, but I don't have the bloated gut and pain like I use to so I am encouraged that I am seeing improvement. The crazy thing is I am waking up at night now with GI issues and am having to run to the bathroom. I use to always have my bathroom issues in the morning. I have been eating lots of fruits and veggies, but I am wondering if this may be too hard on my gut at this time. I was sick for 7 years so I think this just may be a slow process in helping my gut to heal. I will look into making broths like Pricklypear recommended. Rice cereal and almond milk has been my go to the last few days. I have started taking Immodium again to control symptoms. Anyone else have a similar story with crazy GI issues of "D" and still getting sick after going gluten free for 3 months or longer?
  2. I was diagnosed with Celiac Nov. 2012. I began the gluten-free diet right off. I am still having a lot of GI issues and I have to run to the bathroom a lot for a sick stomach (D). Any recommendations on foods I can eat that are easy to digest and will help with the healing process? I am keeping a food journal to try and figure out what is agreeing and disagreeing with my body. Also, I gave up dairy, coffee, and alcohol to try and help promote the healing. I am also taking a special mulitvitamin that has probiotics and digestive enzymes formulated for people with Celiac. Thanks for any and all help.
