I Feel Good!

I didn't know which heading I should put this under, but here it is:

After only 17 days of my new diet, I feel like I have shed 20 years. I am one of those with no specific symptoms. I didn't even know I was sick. It was the link between psoriasis anc Celiac which brought me here.

But I guess I WAS sick. I thought I was just getting OLD! My psoriasis is almost gone already, but there are so many other things that have gotten better. I am now sleeping 7 or 8 hours a night, straight through. I have energy like I haven't felt since I was MUCH younger. My little aches and pains have disappeared. My head is clearer. I feel HOPEFUL and positive.

Today, I feel like I can take on the whole world and win. I am just so happy, I had to share it with all of you, along with my thanks for all the help and advice! :)

I've been singing that song to the cat for the past two days. ;)

I'm thinking maybe the reason I feel so good is that I am finally sleeping well. It has affected everything - my energy level and my mood. I know my mood is better too, because my hands and feet don't hurt anymore. Now I can take a walk. Now I can play my guitar without pain.

And it has been so EASY. Just a change in diet. It wasn't old age after all. It wasn't any of those scary diseases that run through your thoughts in the middle of the night. I just changed my diet and now I feel healthy and strong.

And happy, happy, happy.

Wow! Well done! There's hope for me yet! I'm 31 and feel years older. The fatigue and aches and pains are driving me nuts. I'm going to slowly become gluten free this coming week (just to ease myself into it). My blood results arent back but it can't hurt!

Keep up the good work x

When I first started, I was SOOO tired. Waves of fatigue would wash over me and I needed to go lie down. Then a friend told me to avoid the sweet potatoes, carrots, and FRUIT I had been eating until late in the day. The fructose was making my sugar spike, then plummet. For the past week, I save all of the sugar filled fruits and veggies for supper and dessert. It has made a HUGE difference.

Get yourself some Udi's bread (tastes like french bread - yum!) Then stick to meat and potatoes or rice, and eat lots of broccoli or other green veggies. I don't know about anyone else, but my sweet tooth has shriveled up since I have been on this diet. I don't miss the cookies at all - instead I might have a slice of Canyon Bakehouse gluten free 7-grain bread as a snack. Then, as I said, a piece of fruit before bed - and that makes me sleepy.

I hope it goes as well for you as it has for me. :)

Many moons ago when I was waitressing, one of the women I worked with used to come up behind her fellow waitresses and sing a line from some of the worst songs she could think of, just to get them stuck in our heads.

Might I interest you in, "Like a rinestone cowboy", "See the tree how big it grows" (also known as "You died so I planted a stupid tree") or perhaps "You light up my life"? :lol:

But seriously, if you need a GOOD song to replace it with, just start singing, "I've got sunshine on a cloudy day..."

WOW...now, that's funny because that's the song my hubby always sings to me because he has always called me his "girl"...aw, thanks...that's better!! B)

(I guess the only one slightly worse would have been " she's Havin my baby"?? ...that "Honey, I miss you" one with the tree?..ow, man...UGH and pass me the barf bag)

    • If you're going to continue to push for a diagnosis stay on gluten! A break could lead to a false negative. It's a lot harder to go off it and then go back on...   
    • I still prefer steaming, but I wash my white rice throughly.  I purchase California rice which has a lower level of arsenic.  Moderation is key to most everything!  😊
    • I eat pretty much grain free just fine, I eat fats instead. But on a side note I posted some specialty and grain free options as of late in the food alternative page where I list companies and food product alternatives. I honestly just welcomed bread back into my life, I found a company that makes grain free bread out of nut flours. Given you have to toast the dang bread to use it well but seems to work decently. Pasta there are carb free versions out there, and there are ones made with quinoa, buckwheat, or other grains, I even know one company that makes nut flour based ones. You can get these gluten-free options and avoid the rice. As to levels of arsenic they do test foods for these, and all should be safe, the trace amounts and the sheer amount you would have to eat to get effected is staggering, a bit of rice will not hurt you regardless if your concerned I know gluten-free watchdog does arsenic testing on products you could check and find the "safest ones" for your concerns.
    • I've forgotten them, just remember the good stuff. Weekends in Baja or Vegas or up Pacific highway to see the Redwoods and Frisco. Watching the sunrise at Mount Soledad and watching it drop into the Pacific in the evening. Carne Asada Burritos on Garnet* Solana beach ale* Gorgeous women entranced by my exotic accent, humboldt county weed, raves at the romper room, *1.99 are you out of your mind Denny Breakfasts, Christmas on the beach, *Beers in the gaslamp quarter. I need one of these                                      * which by the power of my imagination have magically become gluten free     AANNNYWAAY... Arsenic in rice. Yeah. 
    • Oh, it definitely struck me as very odd! It also says "no significant increase in intraepithelial lymphocytes". That's their favorite word I guess!  My blood work pre-biopsy also showed increase lymphocytes and my primary doctor said it usually means increased inflammation. Doing all the things I can now---filing a complaint, I've emailed my doctors to tell them I'm upset and don't think I received proper care, I'm in the process of trying to see a naturopath that diagnosed a friend of a friend w celiac. I'm going to see if i can get the other blood work done with them---and I've been gluten free for a week and a half!
