The chiropractor that diagnosed me Gluten Intollerent has also suggested Magnesium, a Digestive Enzyme and another Supplement (for intestinal healing) - is anyone else taking this extra stuff or has anyone heard about it????

For 2 months now, I have been taking 2 different probiotics, magnesium, digestive enzymes, extra vitamins, and Betaine HCL.  Managed to go on vacation and I know there was cc and only minor impact.  Everyone is different, but I just could not believe how well I came back.  I really expected more of a reaction after all I had been through this year.  I really think these things helped. Good Luck.

Just wondering what made you start taking your supplements??? Mine is to hopefully heal my IBS which usually results in Constipation, but now I experience more Diarrea, Severe Bloating + Gas. Been trying it for 4-5 months already! Are Diarrea, Gas & Bloating - Detox Symptoms from coming off of Gluten???

Magnesium can cause diarrhea.  My chiropractor does not want me to take it when I have diarrhea.  I lay off for a couple days and go back to a smaller dose working my way up to a higher dose if necessary.

 

I am using Genuine NZimes Dr. Howell's Formula Extra Strength.  It is in powder form and you sprinkle it over your food.  These I purchase through Azure Standard.  These are working well for me.  My Functional medicine nurse had told me that my villi were too damaged to do their job of telling my pancreas to fire.  This is reversible, but in the meanwhile extra enzymes are needed to break down my food.  Since starting enzymes I have seen less unprocessed food coming through.  I have also used enzymes provided by my healthcare practitioner and ones that I purchased at a nutrition store.

 

I have used IGG for intestinal healing.  I felt that it helped me.  My son took glutamine to help heal his gut; he had parasites.  This seemed to help him.  The osteopathic Functional Doctor recommended them for him.

 

I also use probiotics.  I am using Restore Probiotic.  This is in powdered form and I just add it to water.  I think that it is doing something for me.

Thanks, I think I need to regulate the amt. of Magnesium I take more - like you are doing. I just get so afraid of being constipated again. I really appreciate all that you've shared with me :)

I was already taking TruFlora to heal my insides, but after a bacterial infection my GI told me to take Florastor as well, so two probiotics.  

 

Celiact, after looking over all of the vitamins and supplements I am low on, I was already taking supplements of some of them and I was low?  So, I chose Celiact, reading the label I can see I am getting mega doses.  I feel better, I have finger nails I can use, for the first time in my life, without breaking.

 

My Gastric Acid was at 1, so instead of taking all of the scripts that the GI wanted me to take, it was suggested I try Betaine, I did, it works.

 

The Enzymes, I am still new on them, I think they help.  Case in point, my family went on vacation, our host family had a very gluten kitchen, the impact on me was very minor.  I tried to stick to only clean healthy foods, and braced for the worst, it never came.  We did eat out a lot, again, which was worse, a gluten kitchen or a gluten restaurant, but I kept it to foods that would not be impacted.  Salads, meats, fruits, and I introduced them to Gluten Free in the store they shop at.

 

So, I see that they are working.  My list of problems are much greater than what you will see when I post this.  Those are just what I am Dx with.

 

I had constipation most of my life, when I was a kid, it was D.  Now its a mix, before the vacation, I think I understood normal.  I have bad gas too, they put me on a very restricted diet after an endoscopy, lots of rules to eating, even sleeping.  Right now I have a cough, I think its related to my Esophagus problems, carry over from vacation.  But I will keep on with my supplements and enzymes and the probiotics I will never miss, I do not want to go through that bacteria again.  

 

DId this help?  I hope so.  Hang in there.  It gets better.

    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc.
