Withdrawl Symptoms

6 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me if these are typical withdrawl symptoms after eliminating gluten from my diet. The last gluten I had was last Saturday, I have not had any since (not that I am aware of) and I feel so ill. I have had chronic gas and bloating for a few days now that does not seem to be improving, my body aches terrible, I feel like my legs don

When I first removed gluten from my diet I went through withdrawal too, and even though I myself had mostly dizziness and some intestinal discomfort (tummy troubles previously odd for me), it did pass. But I recall being more than a little alarmed, especially since many doctors don't believe you can have w/d symptoms from gluten. There are many many on this forum who disagree and have firsthand experience to prove it. Anyway, once it passed I felt amazing.

One bit of advice that I am thankful I took from the folks here on the forum was to also eliminate all traces of dairy and soy at first. So if you seem to continue with symptoms, you may want to consider that, since lots of people like me, who have trouble with gluten also have trouble with those two common ingredients. Many can add the dairy and/or soy back at a later time, once healing is progressed.

Hang in there. It really does get better.

Dr Charles Parker's Celiac Notes.

.

Opiate withdrawal from discontinuing gluten and casein?

Cautionary note: sounds absurd until you see it.

.

You might want to warn gluten sensitive, celiac and casein sensitive patients about this

odd and painful clinical phenomenon:

Withdrawal after stopping wheat or milk products can be painful, exhausting, and depressing,

with weakness, anger, and brain fog.

.

The peptides from gluten [gliadorphin] and casein [casomorphin] are important because

the react with opiate receptors in the brain, thus mimicking the effects of opiate drugs like heroin and morphine.

These compounds have been shown to react with areas of the brain such as the temporal lobes,

which are involved in speech and auditory integration.

KILLER CRAVINGS! (All cravings not just Gluten) .

Addictive substances cause the body to become dependent on an unnatural substance for homeostatic balance.

.

Removing it causes withdrawals.

.

During withdrawal, the addict suffers through the painful readjustment as the body cries out for the missing substance.

In a desperate attempt to maintain homeostasis (chemical balance), the body demands the very substance that caused the imbalance.

I was diagnosed about a month ago. For sure, I had (or am having) withdrawal. First week was bad, as were the next few but this week I think I've turned the corner. Since Wednesday, my old appetite has returned with a vengeance and I'm eating like a horse, with great digestion, and hopefully starting to gain back the 10 lbs I didn't need to lose.

    • I will just stick with christopherbean company, the fact the main sales rep I talk to has celiac in the family means a lot, she said they use it all the time. I tested some of the iffiest flavored version grounds for gluten all negative. NOT had any issues drinking all kinds of coffee from their company in the past few months. FACT the flavored ones actually taste like what they say and just need a bit of sweetener is making me a coffee addict again lol. Clearing a pot a day so far and looking forward to each day wondering what flavor I should do >.> today was banana foster coffee, its 7 am and i already am on my third cup. If your still in doubt just buy their beans and grind your self.  I am grateful for the guy that started this thread as he ended up motivating me to start my campaign to find a gluten-free flavored coffee, where I ended up emailing several companies, I still saved 2 of the replies from companies saying DO NOT drink our coffee if you have celiac. Sorta funny how that brought up the issue and proved some points about gluten in the coffee industry.
    • Ch88 yes im  glad i had the blood test but it was found by accident so bit of a shock when i found out. God knows how long i had it but i always remember as a child suffering from stomach pain alot but back in the eighties it was unheard off!  But if you or any other membets can offer advice on what happens after the biopsy it would be much appreciated.
    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal.
