  1. Figured I would start a positive post. List foods you had to initially cut that after a while of healing you could reintroduce. Me These Foods made me sick and I had a intolerance to now I still limit them but no longer have to worry about seeing them on a label. Red #40, Beets, Peas, Green Beans, Flax Seed, Tapioca, Soy, Casein, Strawberry, Sucralose/Spenda, Brussels Sprouts, Carrots, Celery, Onions, Garlic, Paprika/Bell Pepper, Okra, and thank god only for about a few months I had a issue with chocolate. STILL have a whole list of no nos but these are no longer things I have to worry about laying me over a toilet for hours to turning me into Mr Hyde.
  2. Last challenge I tried I said NO after the initial hit a few years back. YES it is very common to feel drugged on a gluten challenge for celiacs or people with NCGI. Your body is fighting the gluten with antibodies hardcore in the BG if your a celiac. Just like how it fights a disease or virus, flu like fatigue, and drugged state of completely out of it are common.
  3. Fatigue can be caused by many different things. Most common ones are a CC issue with gluten, a intolerance to a food or a allergy causing it, or a deficiency. Issue with deficiencies is we are all different, some of us have bodies that require a lot more then the recommended amount and less of others. I for one require 3x the dose of magnesium and 2x the dose of B vitamins, niacin, and iron to operate like a semi normal human. I go below these and I just want to laze around and sleep all day. I also find I have to stagger my doses throughout the day to maintain a even level and avoid slumps. Try supplementing and adjusting your doses on these to see how you feel, it took me months to get my regime down. You might also have a digestive issues where you body is bogging down with something either due to a enzyme issue or intolerance try taking a probiotic, digestive enzyme, and playing with your diet for a bit. Perhaps drop of the common culprits like dairy, grains, oats, etc and try a week without them, Perhaps try paleo with just fats and protein for a week, might be a carb issues, or might be a issue with meats. Who knows we are each different and you have to find what works for you. I wish you luck finding your path and building a regime for your better health.
  4. So I been having some odd issues, I doubled my protein and fat intake and started stuffing myself to bulk up. Now sometimes I get sick and puke up the undigested food a few hours later. First off yes I am on PPI due to a odd issue, not quite acid reflux but related. Basically if I do not take them my stomach keeps producing acid non stop and I just throw up acid 24/7. Been like this since 05-07ish when I ODed on energy drinks as a kid.. Anyway so one guy suggest I take betaine HCL to make my acid stronger to breakdown the foods more. Another suggest a broad spectrum enzyme and to up my intake of them. While I was personally debating taking just a bromelain enzyme to help, as a lot swear by pineapple for digestion and this would get me enzymes without the sugars.
  5. I use a local almond milk from HEB Organics, has a very creamy texture. Alternative I use Blue Diamond since it is commonly on sale. I also like Silk Cashew Milk and blue diamond cashew almond blends they tend to be more creamy. Coconut beverage I use So Delicious, cooking I use Thai kitchen. NOTE I only drink unsweetened versions. Now to your shampoo question I just stick to EO products and play it safe.
  6. I have some issues with raw peppers and tomatoes, but roasting them to a mush or zapping them in the microwave makes them really easy on my stomach NO clue why but zapping them even in a sauce form, after 2mins they no longer bother me....and oddly enough due to the low carb nature of them and how cheap they are. They are actually a staple of my diet. i admit I react them, but I can not remove them. SO limited already, no grains, no starches, no fruit, no dairy, no soy, I can not digest meats.....and gluten is obviously a no. Funny if I eat peppers raw I know I will be feeling sick in 30-40mins.
  7. Bar wise Julian bakery has some gluten-free and Dairy free low carb protein bars, really hit and miss some are terrible. But no gut issue from them. As for protein I use a few on rotation, Post workout and meals I use Nutrakey V-Pro, MRM Veggie Elite, Oragain Vegan, Jarrow Optimal in combination with Jarrow Rice, Jarrow Hemp, Pumpkin Seed Protein, Sancha Inchi Powder. I use Growing Naturals plain in cooking sometimes. Meal Replacements I use MRM Meal replacement and recently started using Pioneer Labs Celiac Support.
  8. I make my own using So Delicious coconut yogurt, Lorr Ann oils icecream syrups, swerve sugar free sweetener and a ice cream maker.
  9. You body will more actively burn fat for energy, thus it will turn to itself more often and quicker if you do not eat enough. I noticed I did not eat enough this last weekend and my body depleted my stores leaving me without energy and a couple of pounds lighter. You need to eat plenty of fats to maintain your body in this state, and plenty of protein.
  10. Pumpkin Seed protein powder before bed, 2-4 tsp in a bit of almond milk. "Pumpkin seeds and the powder from pumpkin seeds have relatively high amounts of the amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan is the amino acid the body uses to make the feel-good and relaxation neurotransmitter serotonin. Pumpkin seeds also contain high amounts of zinc, which can help the brain convert tryptophan into serotonin. Serotonin levels are typically low in people who cannot stay asleep and wake throughout the night.

" By Pina LoGiudice ND, LAc and Peter Bongiorno ND, LAc Directors of Inner Source Health Normally they suggest a for tsp or two of apple sauce also for light carb to help your body convert it at higher rates.
  11. I have posted a few grain free recipes in the cooking section for breads, biscuits, and cakes. Working on a cupcake recipe now, found I also have issues with a few other carbs like potatoes (alright with a nibble but a chunk of one will cause gastrointestinal issues) . I was using bean chips for awhile but I guess the rice in them bugged me and caused some issues. I only use 1-2 as condiments crushed over salads or in soups now, I think my only source of grains is rice protein powder if that even counts. I will be having small amounts of gluten-free oats starting next month but not by a choice. I run a gluten-free bakery, and the market season is coming up. Sorta have to taste a pinch off my gluten-free muffins that use gluten-free oats and almond flour in them. This will be a nice experiment after 5 months no oats, to see how I react. Hoping to phase them out to a pure almond/coconut blend in the next season if my customers will accept them. Pain on a paleo diet is getting enough fat and other nutrients. The keto aspect will bite your body hard if you underestimate your intake I sorta just had this issues over the weekend.
  12. Are you sure it does not start at least some kind of production in other areas? I can get sores in my mouth, lymph nodes normally have a reaction within 30mins of consuming something with a flour or breading. I also notice issues with the fog, anxiety etc. with inhaled flours sometimes if I go by the bakery some times at stores. Now the gut issues and other issues take a hour or so after consuming before it gets real bad for me. Those are the truly evil ones that lay me out for hours, with vomiting, motion control issues, and D or C. I can see the anxiety part perhaps being a psychological manifestation. But the rest are obviously some kind of triggered reaction to it. Perhaps it depends on ones sensitivity to gluten or mine for all I know might be a combination with a allergy to it. (Testing is out of date for my allergies by 4 years) Sorry for any misinformation due to my incompetence in the matter and assumptions based on my personal reactions.
  13. We had a major discussion on this product a few weeks ago. It will not help you much if you have actual celiac. As it is a autoimmune disease, your body is reacting with antibodies to the gluten proteins. This starts before it even gets to the gut, as soon as you body detects teh gluten in the mouth and stomach it starts producing the antibodies that will attack your body. Now the GliadinX might help with the prolonged abdominal discomfort, but it will not stop the damage to your villi. DO NOT think of it as some miracle pill. You should still avoid gluten, hell your better off buying test kits to test your food eating out then the gliadin pills. Do this at your own risk but please try not to confuse new comers with this product. YES i have a personal vendetta against such products using enzymes to make gluten "Safer" for celiacs I fell for the same BS years ago.
  14. Found a interesting article on magnesium and how it effects ones health. I noticed a lot of issues that many of us complain about addressed as side effects of not having enough. https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Magnesium-HealthProfessional/
  15. Might be you react to other grains also, some celiacs also react to oats, and in rare cases all grains. Keto/paleo diet is a huge help I found, I mostly eat nuts, seeds, veggie protein powders, and egg whites myself with sides of veggies and sometimes a fig or small piece of dried fruit. NOTE I can not digest meats.
