Poisoned By A Naturopath And ....

I have been trying to go gluten free for three weeks and i never get farther than 6 days.

This time my naturopath reccommended Udo's Beyond GReens which is fantastic but loaded with gluten.

Then when i thought i had that covered the lady at the nutrition store gave me the non gluten free version of liquid iron.

So i am in hell again and i am so tired of this...

Just venting, beware of health professionals,

Magdalena, ON, Canada

Bummer....

I've stopped taking advice from "experts" unless they're Celiacs themselves.

And I would still double check everything I put in my body.

I hired a nutritionist that was a celiac specialist and she was good but a few of the supplements she reccomended had gluten in them.

Health food stores are the worst. I was told the one in my town was specializing in Gluten Free foods yet they use 2 wheat stocks for a logo <_<

Hopefully you'll feel beter soon

I'm sorry you were given bad advice. I just thought I would warn you that the Customer Service representative at the company that makes Udo's products gave me wrong information, also. I called to find out why their Udo's Digestive Enzyme Blend for Canada was gluten free, but their US version contained Barley. She kept telling me they were the same, and that both were gluten-free. The US label clearly stated BARLEY,a nd she would not believe me that this meant it wasn't gluten free. I just wanted to know how I could get some of the Canadian product shipped to me in the US! I ended up using Pioneer Digestive Enzymes and they worked great. So I guess what I'm saying is that you can't always trust the "professionals". Look on every label for yourself and go with your instincts.

God bless,

Mariann

    • I walk and do yoga.  I started off slow, but was able to increase it as I felt better.  They are still my 2 favorite ways to exercise.
    • These days there are tasty equivalents for most foods. So you're just changing brands. Here's my list of gluten free equivalents to get you started: If you're currently on a meat, potato, and veggies diet then relax because this is gonna be easy. If not you might want to switch to a meat, veggies, and potatoes diet at least for a while.   Note: insert the words "gluten free" in every item mentioned as some of the companies also sell non gluten free stuff. It's tedious to write that phrase all the time. Get a chest freezer to store all of your frozen gluten-free foods. Makes things easier. Bread: Canyon bakehouse without question is the most realistic tasting bread.
        Schar comes in a close second.
          Canyon bakehouse plain bagels are practically indistinguishable from regular bagels.
          Canyon bakehouse white bread makes fantastic toast. It has a very slight
                       sweet taste to it. My friend says it tastes like normal bread. The
                       only difference to me is the sweetness.
          Canyon bakehouse deli rye is great if you like rye bread sandwiches. Toasted is best.
          Canyon bakehouse multigrain tastes exactly like multigrain bread and does not need to be toasted.
          Schar baguettes are fantastic.
          Katz makes an English muffin that, after toasted, reminds me of a real one provided it has stuff on it like butter. I think that's the brand.
          Etalia has a great boule if you prefer artisan bread. (Colorado) Pizza crust:
          Shar makes a good thick and chewy crust.
          Udis makes a good thin and crispy crust.
          Etalia makes a great New York crust. (Colorado) Pasta:
          Barilla makes the best pasta. Tastes the same as normal. Spaghetti cooks the best.
          RP has a frozen pasta that I'm going to try next. Flour:
          Pamelas all-purpose flour is great for making gravy and batter for fried foods. Cereal:
          Envirokidz Gorilla Munch cereal is a yummy equivalent to corn Pops. Cookies:
          Kinnikinnik makes a decent Oreo equivalent.
          Kinnikinnik makes a good nilla wafer
          Mi Del makes a great ginger snap.
          Goodie Girl mint slims - fantastic girl scout mint cookie equivalent Cake:
          Betty Crocker chocolate cake mix tastes the same, but you have to get the cooking time exactly right. It is a very small window of time. Too long and it's too dry. Frozen meals:
          Udi's Chicken Florentine is addictive and Broccoli Kale lasagna is a good white lasagna. Restaurants (not from personal experience, just from research)
          Chinese – PF Changs. Employees are supposedly trained in gluten free.
          Burgers – In N Out. The only thing here that is not gluten free are the
                      buns so it is very easy for them to do gluten free. They are
                      also trained in it. They are only out west. Road Trip!
          Outback steakhouse. Employees are supposedly trained in gluten free. How
                      good they are depends on where you live.   If you are willing to cook from scratch it's fairly easy to make a good gluten free equivalent to your favorite foods.    
    • I do light weights at the gym. Will increase weight when I get better.  
    • I got a personal trainer and go to the gym twice a week. It's nice to think about other things. And I don't go crazy at the gym. Light workout so I stop breaking things all the time. I haven't torn a tendon in months.  
    • I hear you on this, I live alone, isolated by allergies, and this disease often, spending the evenings alone wishing someone would come by and join me for tea, coffee, or hell even board games sound great at times.  I find myself trying to help others on these boards with my knowledge, feel useful and needed. I drink flavored teas, from republic of tea, and coffee flavored like desserts from Christopher bean coffee to "treat myself" and I try to sometimes get online like I used to as a kid and play video games (nerve damage makes games frustrating , hard, and I can not do multiplayer anymore) Best thing to do is distract yourself, workout, clean the house is always mentally rewarding, hobbies (if you can afford them). I also find peddling on a stationary bike while reading or watching a show to help burn off energy/stress while distracting my mind.
