I expect it to work on a case by case basis, I mean, but what has your experience been? I know not everyone gluten intolerant will even experience BO in the first place, but for those of you that did, did it take any of you months or longer? I've gone 5 weeks without any unsafe foods, without measurable improvement. People still react to the smell. In addition to the possibility that it's just going to take longer, could there be any complications of gluten intolerance that BO could be indicative of, that couldn't just be solved by going off the stuff?

Sorry, I didn't get it. I did notice a change, but it turned out that I was drinking too much ginger tea, which has some negative effects.

I bet if you drink lots of water and take daily walks, you could speed it up a little.

I can't say I experienced this either, or the people in my life are too polite to mention it.  :D I DO get BO is I just use a deodorant rather than an antiperspirant but as long as I wash well and reapply antiperspirant every 20 hours or so, then I am fine. My level of BO hasn't changed. It's high for a woman but I am a heavy sweater... in feminine terms: I "glisten" profusely.  LOL

 

I know there are prescription antiperspirants that actually stop your sweating in the treated area, but I'm not that severe of a case so I haven't looked into it.

Hi do you use  rock chrystal deodorant.  I have found that this cuts down on the BO smell.  It works by stopping the bacteria that causes the smell multiplying.  The brand I use in the UK is Pit Rock.  It is a little more expensive than a normal deoderant, but the chrystal lasts ages.  It is also a natural product.  No aluminium in it.

My family has been using this product (salt crystal) for 20 years.   It works well (sometimes you have to freshen up after work on a hot day).  My stick (chunk) lasts a few years.  The best part is that it does not stain your clothes.  My white t-shirts stay white forever.

I use homemade lye soap.  It is an excellent cleaner.  Grandpa's makes a good bar which is likely in a store near you.  Homemade soap is often available at craft stores. 

 

Did I ever tell you about the first time I used  homemade soap?  It stunk!  Then I resoaped and it didn't stink.  I realized that I had gotten clean!  Mine is made of olive oil, palm oil, and coconut oil.  Lye is used in the processing.  It is gentle on skin.

    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.  
    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
