An Open Letter to Skeptical Health Care Practitioners
All drugs, including over-the-counter, can have serious side effects (I am not talking about gluten exposures). Each individual must decide (with a doctor’s input) what is best for them. I think we have become a little too careless and dependent on easy access drugs. Some have been around forever (like aspirin) but that does not make them safe. I take antihistamines. Safe? Who knows? But living with hives can be unbearable. I am willing to take the risk!
Just be careful and follow the instructions on the bottle.
@LilyR Look for the cause if your symptoms. Sounds like you might be getting some gluten into your diet. When that happens to me, I make a good homemade stew or soup. I eat it morning, noon and night. You should eat anything that is easy to digest. For example, cooked fruits and veggies vs. raw. Salad can be hard to digest when your small intestine is inflamed. Avoid processed foods. Sure they are gluten free, but you might have an intolerance to a preservative or additive. Gradually, go back to the regular gluten free diet when you feel better.
I agree. Never buy Great Value anything that you eat. Their diced tomatoes even have wheat in them. Make sure you check every label. I've been reading every label of everything I buy so I don't get contaminated and I never eat anything that was processed someplace that also processes wheat. Don't believe Cheerios either. They make a lot of Celiacs sick. I got really sick when I ate Multi grain cheerios that were supposedly gluten free.
Gluten Free, for fad dieters not the medically required. Look for the gluten-free certified seal. PS most walmart brand stuff is russian roulette, best not play that with your health. Try http://www.leaperrins.com/Products/The Original Worcestershire Sauce
PS if you need a good teriyaki sauce, soy sauce substitute (coconut aminos), or a good garlic sauce look up coconut secret. They are gluten free, soy free and are great.
I believe the leaky gut diet says cooked vegetables are good, raw bad. With milk allergies baked milk is less problematic because the offending item is chemically changed during baking. Sounds like what you're noticing.
