Introduction Of All New Grains To Our Bodies
0

5 posts in this topic

As we figure out the different things that we can and cannot eat, I think we need to realize that we are introducing so many new things to our system at one time. We have rice flour, tapioca flour, buckwheat, amaranth, nut flours, bean flours, corn starch, soy flour, flax seed and so many many things. And yet, some of us still have problems with stomach and abdominal issues. So, I guess, I think we should slow down a little bit and introduce these things slowly so that we can tell if some of these new things are bothering our insides.

I am in such a rush in todays world to fix everything and be able to substitute what I need to in my diet with new things, I might die if I don't have bread or pretzels or snack items! ;) I want to be like everyone else and eat what they are eating or at least substitute something so that I can fit in. As we all know, food is a huge social item in our culture and by God I want to fit in. But at the same time, as I mentioned above, we are introducing so many new things at one time to our bodies. So for the next month or so, I am slowing way down. My mother had a wonderful quote when I was little, "Everything in moderation."

Thanks for listening!

Hi BamBam,

Good thoughts! :)

I never thought about the fact that we are intrducing new foods to our diets and what ramifications that could hold. Maybe that IS why some of us still have digestion problems. I mean, some of the flours I use now, I never even heard of before. :huh:

It's funny..."Everything in moderation"....I've always said too! :lol:

I think I read somewhere that guar gum and xanthium gum are not digestable. Has anyone else read that? And isn't tapioca something of a laxative too? Maybe that's why we still have issues. There are too many days when I have 6 or 7 bowel movements and to my mind, there should be only one... <_<

I've been giving this some concern as well. I'll give you an example of what we found. After my dd stopped nursing we put her on organic cows milk. Then her Dr. suggested we try organic soy milk and we did. She didn't tolerate soy and I became a little concern about some of the things I had read so we switched to almond milk. Now after being tested she is allergic/intolerant to dairy, soy and almonds. We're now doing rice milk and on occasion DariFree. She's not drinking a great deal of milk but I found that she gets rice or rice flour almost daily. I've been wondering if a rotaton diet would be effective to use while the body is healing but I can't seem to stick with the menu I plan. :blink:

    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
    • Amazing!  You should feel very optimistic!  It sounds like you are doing everything right...great job!!😊😊😊😊
    • Yes, I would ask for the rest of the celiac panel (including the IgA deficiency test).  Discuss this with your child's GI.  He/She may be able to order for you.  Share the CBC results too with him/her.  I would want to know for sure before giving up gluten to support my child, but you need to determine what is best for you!  
    • I am sorry too.  I did not mean to imply that you have a sugar issue (though it may contribute to our obesity problem, but that is another debate).  I do not think that is the cause of your symptoms.  I brought it up because the American Academy of Pediatrics just issued this on juice for infants, toddlers and adolescents: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2017/05/18/peds.2017-0967 We all have unique intolerances.  My kid can not drink orange juice beyond a 1/2 cup.  That is about the equivalent of two oranges.  Too much juice and she gets an allergic reaction -- itchy hives all over her body.  Yet, she can eat two oranges in her lunch everyday -- just not a full cup of orange juice, processed or fresh.   Me?  I tolerate it just fine, if only I could tolerate garlic!!!!!! i hope you feel better soon.   
    • Hi and welcome You've found a great community full of wise people who have experience successfully negotiating just the things you're going through. So that's some good news to start. Course there's people like me here too... Take heart from the fact its very early days and you will have a lot of healing to come. Everyone slips up at first, don't beat yourself up, over time you get better at it, but mistakes will happen. Maybe in time you'll be able to reintroduce some of those other foods. Yeah me too. Sadly not 26 anymore though.  Best of luck! Matt
