Dairy Intolerance

So I'm still having problems with not being quite regular. I went from constant diarrhea and cramps to having mostly normal bowel movements with occasional diarrhea and cramps, occasional completely normal bowel movements after cutting out gluten and dairy. I was wondering about taking a probiotic, but REALLY don't want to eat yogurt (the one time I accidentally had a small amount of parmesan cheese in a salad, the effect was extremely unpleasant!! ugh.) I found these probiotic "pearls", basically a probiotic pill to take that has trace amounts of milk, according to the package. I took one, and had diarrhea and mood swings that day all day. However, saying that, the day I took them turned out to be a couple days before (guys may want to skip this part of the sentence) my period began, which can cause the exact same symptoms. I have no idea if I should be taking it or not! Any suggestions, or does anyone know of a gluten-free probiotic that won't eat a hole in my wallet? lol

I have been taking a probiotic for a year now with good results. It is called Kyo-Dophilus. I can find it right in the health food section of my local market. I think it runs about $23.00 dollars a bottle for 45 pills but you could take one or 2 a day. It is free of preservatives, sugar, sodium, dairy, yeast, gluten and artificial flavors and colors.

You can get probiotics that are not based on dairy. Most stores have them these days, though you might have to go to a "health food store".

I have had the same problems as you Stormy, so here's what I tried. Nutrition Now has a pro biotic called PB8 that is Dairy free, as well as Gluten,Egg,Peanut,Soy & Salt free. A small Bottle(60 caps) runs about 12.00. I got mine at Vitamin World, but most Health Stores carry it. It worked okay for me, but not as well as I had hoped so after some research I decided to try incorporating Flax seed into my diet. It has worked extremely well for me...regular everyday like clockwork...it has literally changed my life!!!

It's important to get whole flax seed and grind it as needed to get all the fiber & nutritional value. Unground Flax will just go right through your system(kinda like corn). Also, it's best not to cook it as well for the same reason. I just use my coffee grinder every morning...put 1 tablespoon in my smoothie and save another tablespoon for later, sprinkled on my salad, mixed in my prepared quinoa or anything else you eat regularly.

It's cheap(My Market in Fla. sells a container of seeds that last me a month for 1.49). Store it in a dark spot (I refrigerate mine) and you'll be good!

Remember to drink plenty of water during the day and I think you'll be amazed at the results within a few days.

    • ennis how do you test for Candida overgrowth did I have to see a functional doctor or do medical doctors test. It would seem like a plausible  explanation to my symptoms. 
    • Hello everyone.    Ive been diagnosed with celiac for about 4 years now. It's been a rough road but I feel like I've gotten as good as I can get with eliminating gluten completely from my diet.    I am an undergraduate student with a driven passion to become a nurse (I'm a guy, I know). I love the field and can't wait to help people every day.   As some of you may know, the nursing curriculum is extremely intense. I have an very strict routine and schedule where I can handle the rigor of my classes, work, and fitness (I am really into health and fitness, it's the best release from the stresses induced from school. I get 6 hours of sleep on the dot and manage to work, volunteer, study, and eat decently well. I love my life when it's on this routine and am so happy and social with people around me. I'm making progress, I'm moving forward, making something of my life.    But lately I've been suffering. I've been getting sick a lot more often from what seems to be random uncontrollable cross contamination from various things. When I get sick, my routine gets all messed up, I fall off my schedule, and things start going downhill. I like to call it the "celiac rut" I get stuck in. When I'm sick I can't work out, without working out I get extremely stressed and can't sleep. Without sleep I can't focus on my school and you know, the slippery slope that pretty much leads to lots of depression and anxiety.    This. Absolutely. Sucks. I fall behind in school and have trouble focusing on my priorities because I need more sleep to heal, and I can't go to class or the gym when I'm throwing up or spending hours on the toilet. Plus the mental symptoms turn me into an angry antisocial gluten monster. So that's always fun.   I really don't know how to manage this. I feel like at this rate I won't be able to keep up with my daily life. I physically can not handle the lifestyle I have when I get sick, and it piles up because when I get better I'm like weeks behind in material in my classes.    I am am normally a super happy outgoing guy, I love being the person I truly am. But gluten is singlehandedly tearing my life apart and the depression is starting to take it's toll.    I honestly dont know what to get out of posting this. I just hope that someone has some sort of trick or secret to get through this awful "celiac rut."
    • Hello, I have the same issue with the hair loss a few months after going gluten free, I have been getting the b12 shot and was also told to take Vit D and Calcium, Also told it was because my guts are still not happy after all i put them thru, It's very upsetting losing the amount of hair I have, my right side of my head is about 65% thinner then the left...Was told it see a Diet person right away. 
    • There is sort of a detox/withdrawal thing for the first few weeks for most. Keep a food diary, often after a glutening a new intolerance will creep up for awhile. Sort of your body associating another food with gluten, and or it just being picky while damaged. Write down everything you eat, how you fix it, seasonings etc. Change up the diet, and look for patterns.  My own gut is being picky today and had D after 2 meals so I am rotating up and narrowing down the culprit tomorrow myself....only see 4 common things in my food dairy.
    • Thanks for your reply. I'm currently grain free, although I ended up making kitchary because I needed something of substance in my stomach. Seems to have helped. Some other symptoms coming on strong, so just hoping I have some answers soon, to make sure I'm at least on the right path!
