Does any one do yoga to help with GI symptoms? If so, what type and could you recommend a dvd to use that you enjoy?

It is ok. It is not the best filming and they use the same positions in many of the different sequences. I think I bought it on Amazon if I remember correctly.

As a yoga teacher myself, I'm biased, I know, but I would *highly* recommend going to a class with a decent teacher. A DVD cannot look at YOUR alignment and keep you safe. A DVD cannot get the details of what's bothering you and helping you tailor poses to your condition. Even if financial considerations mean you go to a class once or twice a month and use a DVD between times, please consider finding a class. And, finally, to see real benefit, I highly suggest practicing at least three times a week - home practice on your own is totally fine, but some practice. :)

I have been seeing a yogi for private sessions and it has been enormously helpful for my aches and pains. She has taught me that body-awareness, though difficult, is an important part of healing. I notice that my mood, digestive system, pain, and body in general feel better after setting an intention for my yoga practice, working to achieve that goal, and then expressing gratitude for my body.

Home practice could be sitting on the floor in a quiet space and reflecting in a comfortable position. Try to set an intention for what you will do with your time on the ground. Sometimes words like "learn," "heal," "calm," or "listen" come to mind for me. I then stretch and move my body in any way that feels natural, noticing the pain and noticing how to alleviate the pain. If I find that my hip hurts, for example, my yogi says things like, "if your hip had a voice, what would it say?" Sometimes, "I'm angry." At other times, "I need attention." So I pay attention to the hip until it feels better. It sounds kind of silly to write it out, but I strongly believe that when I am in touch with my body, I feel better and more motivated to care for it. Taking 30-60 minutes/day to care for your body can only do good, in my opinion.

If you are someone who suffers from pain and inflammation like me, I do not recommend going outside your comfort zone when you began a yoga practice. I recommend gentle movements and meditation-based practice to start. Then move on when your body is ready!

    • Sometimes when those chilly winds begin to blow, and the temperatures fall, the days get visibly shorter, what we need and what we want is comfort food. Well, look no further than this simple, easy twist on scalloped potatoes. A little ham and a bit of cheese work wonders to turn that old favorite into a meal all its own. View the full article
    • Good luck with the holistic doc. I saw a naturopath for months who set me on a good path until I couldn't afford all the supplements anymore. Be careful with that. I found nothing helped me more than decent whole food and good quality vitamins. And of course sleep and lots of water!
    • Kirsty, do you have copies of the blood tests & biopsy reports? If not, get them. It's always a good idea to get copies of tests so you can refer to them later. If you have them or get them, you could post them here. It makes a difference whether you were given the full celiac panel and how many biopsies were taken from what portion of the small intestine. Also, why did you have a biopsy? Did the doc suspect celiac? What was the reasoning for doing that? Honestly, a   lot of your symptoms when you stop gluten sound like gluten withdrawal. It's something most of us experienced. Use the search box here & put in gluten withdrawal. You get a ton of threads.
    • Keep eating the bread. Get your primary care doc to do a full celiac panel although I will mention that depending on your insurance, some require you to go to a GI to get the full panel. Here's the list: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA 
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
    • I often get rapid heartbeat after meals that raise the blood sugar. But especially so after eating gluten, which is only once a day now. Sometimes I have days where it won’t get up or falls too fast, other days it gets and stays to high. In general, the more inflamed or stressed (usually from my cycle) I am, the more the blood sugar shoots up. Most important is that when I stop all gluten, it won’t get worse. I am asking a doctor for help. Endocrinologist did not take it seriously. I often have blood sugar problems without extreme values. The gastreneterologist did not think gluten was the thing to stop, but wanted me to try anti allergy medication, which made me more ill. Now I am going to see a holistic doctor, who is specialised in adrenals, female hormones and food issues. Maybe she can have a chat with my gastroenterologist. I need the backup of a doctor. Victoria, I am so glad you got over it. I don’t care if it takes a year. As long as the stomach and gut problems and itching subside.
