Better Digestion

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am always looking for practical ways to achieve optimal digestion. This works better than my digestive enzymes. My husband and I have been drinking Lily of the Desert Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice for the past few days and my flatulence after meals is gone. It always stimulates a healthy morning :huh: BM. I will do more research to find out the long term benefits of its use for celiac and gluten-sensitive people.

In pursuit of optimal health,

Tammy

Hi Tammy

I have a three year old daughter with celiac disease. She has been gluten-free four months. Along with a Ped. GI she sees someone who practices alternative med. She recomended Aloe concentrate along with a few other things. It's nice to see someone has had positive results. It's hard to tell if these things do any good with my daughter. Nancy

Tammy,

Been wondering about the aloe vera I recently started taking--as a result of reading a previous post of yours. I haven't noticed much of a difference but it could be because I cut it with water--half and half, and drink it between meals about once or twice a day. What have you been doing to get such great results? I would like to get rid of the flatulence after meals as well.

Also, you mention "Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice." I checked the bottle and it is the same brand you're using, but no where does it say "Whole Leaf." Is this the Lily of the Desert variety I should be using? Or do you happen to know that that company uses only whole leaf aloe vera, but just does not indicate that on the label? Thanks. --Aldo

    • The distillation process does prevent the gluten protein from passing through the filtration process.  However for people who are gluten intolerant like I am, the cross contamination that occurs prior to distillation is still present after distillation.  Therefore while the protein molecule isn't present, the distilled liquid is cross contaminated by containing the gluten protein molecule prior to the distillation process.  I get very ill from any distilled alcohol that contained gluten prior to be being distilled.  For those of you that are gluten intolerant, please be exceptionally careful. Extracts are another thing to stay away from for the same reason.  We have to make our own.  It's a long process but worth not getting sick.
    • I just do a variety of gluten free foods.  Many because someone doesn't like cheese on his potatoes or someone won't eat something else.   I figure they won't starve if all they like is the turkey and the canned cranberry or the sweet potatoes and the apple sauce.  
    • Did the doctor diagnose you with anything?  It sounds like diverticulitis.  Usually treated with 10 days of antibiotics.  Infection can improve, but if it isn't 100% cleared, it can flare up again.  I just had a flare up that didn't improve after 10 days on meds.  Ended up in the hospital for 5 days of IV  antibiotics.  This condition is not related to Celiac.  Let your doctor know you are still feeling pain.  In the meantime, take it easy (eat low fiber) for a couple of weeks and see if that helps.  Call doctor if you develop sharp pain, fever, or blood in your stool.  
    • People who do not have celiac disease, but who have celiac-like symptoms that improve on a gluten-free diet are prime candidates for a condition called non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS). Researchers don't know much about the condition. There are no biomarkers, so they can't just do a blood test. People with this condition often experience celiac-like symptoms. Many of people with non-celiac gluten sensitivity see their symptoms improve on a gluten-free diet. However, these people may also have puzzling sensitivities to other foods that just don't seem to add up. Interestingly, foods with gluten often contain fructans, a type of fermentable oligo-, di-, monosaccharides and polyols (FODMAPs). Fructan is one such compound. Could fructan be the culprit?

    • Well timed Pep talk Admin. I am trying to accommodate all my intolerances this year to make dinner. Last year  I will admit I was so ill, I didn't bother doing a holiday dinner. My spouse (bless him) handled creating a small safe meal in 2016 as I sulked in the corner miserable as T-Day was my favorite holiday. I was still eating blender foods back in Nov 2016 post gluten challenge, so I sulked, pitied myself, and felt very far from holiday spirit and quite honest was not very thankful despite some long overdue medical clarity.  Ahh so here we are 2017,  I can have potato's again, thank goodness my daughter wants garlic mash.  They are back on the menu! Now I just have to try to convert my pumpkin ice cream pie to coconut milk style ice cream vs cow milk ice cream and master gluten-free crusts. Fingers crossed. Happy Thanksgiving everyone and if you are in the Celiac newly diagnosed pit the sun will rise again -stay with us.
