Can Exercise Speed Up/help Healing Time?

5 posts in this topic

My dad who doesn't fully understand the situation strongly believes that exercise can only help - I'm very skeptical about this as it usually makes me very tired or very energetic. Because of this I haven't really been able to get past that barrier and get in to a groove. Does anyone here regularly exercise?

I think my biggest issue with exercise is that even without it I am fatigued a lot of the time.

It took me awhile before I had enough energy to start exercising. I discovered that by taking liquid vitamins twice a day instead of once a day and replacing 1 meal with raw protein meal shake that it helped with the fatigue. You will feel better exercising and it does help get the gluten out of your system. I have also heard that massages help work the toxins out of your body too. Good luck!

I'm not sure about it speeding up healing time, but I have noticed that when I do exercise, I feel so much better. When I'm working out regularly, I have more energy...but I think this also has to do with the fact that if I'm working out all the time, I eat healthier and drink a lot of water. Working out just makes me FEEL healthier, so obviously I don't get home from the gym and eat an entire tub of ice cream :-)

I don't exercise to lose weight (I don't have any to lose), but I do just enough to build muscle tone and keep cardio fitness up a bit. Because I lost so much weight so quickly before I went gluten-free, my muscle tone was shot. Now I have to do physical therapy 3 times a week to get my knees working correctly again. I know you are tired and feeling blah, but even a 10 minute walk outside should make you feel a little better. The warmer weather and sunshine is good for the spirit too! Good luck to you!

It helps/ed me. Whatever you can do, do it.

Even if it's a short walk, or just pulling weeds or whatever. Do it.

Your body is meant to move. Helps me in so many ways.

Yes, it's hard. But just start doing anything to build a habit if movement. Don't go overboard - just light stuff.

Well it all depends I suppose. If you are not absorbing your nutrients yet, I wouldn't exercise, since (what my problem is) you'd lose more weight, and your body would not have anything to run off of.

But I don't know if exercise would have any effect at all, anyhow! It's good to exercise, but I think it's up to you. YMMV, as they say!

    • BOBS RED mill makes an all purpose flour with no rice  try Quinoa flour  buckwheat flour tapioca  chic pea flour coconut flour almond meal ground into a flour  flax meal all these things make great " toast"  and healthy alternatives to too much rice flour yummy
    • Oh yeah. I'm 6 months in and still have bad days, even though I know I'm not eating gluten. It takes a long time to heal. I have been on here a lot in the past 6 months venting because I didn't feel good. I just posted today about how tired I still am. Everyone has basically said the same thing - give it time. Be patient. It can take a long time. Some people said it can take a year. Hang in there.
    • Ok, so I have another question for all of you professional Celiacs. I read an article recently that talked about a study that was done on people with Celiac's disease, which said that some of them (a small number) had high levels of arsenic in their systems because of all of the rice products that they eat. Now, I don't eat a ton of rice, but we do have gluten-free pasta a couple times a week, my son and I like rice Chex, and I know there's brown rice flour in the pizza crusts I use and in the gluten-free bread that I eat. How worried about arsenic poisoning do we need to be? I'm not downing rice at every meal but I do eat it daily, I'm sure. I rarely eat rice, rice. Usually it's the rice flour that's in things. Is this one more thing to keep me up at night? Because now I'm like, "Oh this is great. I'm trading gluten for arsenic." I need to eat carbs. If I just eat fruits and veggies and meat I'll lose weight which stresses me out. I want to be able to eat toast with peanut butter and eggs but I worry my toast is killing me. Am I being a little dramatic.
    • So I've been gluten free for 6 months. I gave it up the day of my endoscopy and never looked back. I was a fairly silent Celiac. My blood work was always normal (never anemic, malnourished), I didn't have all the horrible symptoms that others do. I think I caught it early and that those things were definitely coming. Since going gluten-free I notice that my belly is better. I still have days where it's not great, but in the last month I've noticed that it's consistently pretty good. I don't hardly ever get stomach aches. I've lost 16 lbs and I'm never bloated. Those things are good. But, aside from that, I don't feel much different than I did before. I'm still tired a lot. But I have two kids under 4 and I run a non-profit. I have horrible anxiety and that's only increased since finding out about my Celiac (it's health anxiety and it freaked me out big time that I have an AI disorder). I feel like my complexion looks the same (never had an issue with that).  I just read stories on here that talk about how the brain fog lifted quickly, or how people don't feel tired anymore, etc. I'm still a zombie sometimes. Has anyone else has this experience? Maybe my body was doing such a good job compensating for my Celiac that I wasn't really very symptomatic to begin with - and that the tiredness I feel isn't due to gluten.  Oh, FYI, I had a full thyroid panel done in December and it was all normal. 
    • I have this same problem! My body seeks carbs constantly due to not being able to find ones I can have. I'm allergic to wheat, oats, soy, nuts and citric acid. I get hives head to toe when I consume these products. Now we noticed I don't tolerate rice. I don't get hives, but it's the guy wrenching pain and it doubles me over. Definitely wakes me up night too. I was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto disease before I got all these food allergies too. It was the same for my sister. Her thyroid when crazy and then she ended up with celiacs. I did the allergy testing and then the elimination diet with reintroduced and still reacted so mine was found to be a true allergy and I cannot have these foods anymore at all.  So for me, I can confirm it is in fact possible rice! Because I haven't had those other foods for well over a year because I can't.  One thing I've noticed is with rice, manufacturers add things to it because it's normally stripped down pretty raw and if they didn't add, there's not much nutritional value to rice. So, my theory is, the added stuff is what's making the reaction in my opinion.
