  1. Does Anyone Else React To Salt/sodium?

    I know this is an old post but I was happy to see it here!! There have been numerous times lately that I swell up (like 3 to 4 lbs heavier) the morning after excess salt (chips, salted nuts, pickles, etc...). This happens even when I know I haven't been exposed to gluten plus I don't have the emotional side and GI issues that come with gluten. I deflate typically within a day or two and have just recently figured out that seems sodium related. I am now wondering if the sensitivity to salt is related to a decrease in magnesium. I quit taking my calcium/magnesium supplement not too long ago (not for any reason... just ran out/got lazy)
  2. ZyGluten™

    Has anyone tried this Zygluten product? I too am concerned that I do not see gluten-free certification. I'd never intentionally eat gluten but would love to have a little less fear of cross contamination.
  3. I tried it about 4 weeks ago and it was delicious! I did not have a reaction :-) but... proceed with caution... this is the response on their website: Q: Is your facility gluten-free? A: While spices and herbs are naturally gluten-free, we do not test for gluten in all products, only those certified gluten-free (by GFCO) under the Simply Organic brand. We don't make gluten-free claims for any other products because even tiny amounts of gluten can be a problem, and these may be present in our facility or the facilities of our suppliers. Since I am currently recovering from being glutened I will check into products in more detail from now on. I can tell I am still learning!! I may have gotten lucky on this one :-)
  4. Depression after an episode

    I am going through this right now! The intense stomach pain hit after going to bed Tuesday night and I spent the day yesterday in bed or in the restroom. Today I can tell that I am headed in the right direction but feel like crying and crawling into bed. I know this has happened in the past with a gluten poisoning event so I will take it easy today and know things will likely be better (depression wise) tomorrow. The stomach issues, tiredness, joint pain, etc... can last for up to a week. I just joined this forum and find it very reassuring that others experience the same thing!
