Six weeks on tea - eight weeks without all other supplements.

Tea is steeped very dark - twice per day -- I'm currently using two teabags in the morning and reusing them for second cup.

Am still slowly improving - more hours vertical.

Have added almonds back into diet - Happy Dance :wub:

Might lose the only high lectin food that remained in my diet - the incredible edible egg - going without for 7-10 days to see if it helps.

Not certain tea is reason for improvement - but seems to be partially responsible - when I don't drink it I feel worse -- again not scientific but remains promising.

Son stopped for almost a week - reflux did not worsen, but sinuses did - he's back on one cup per day.

I think the tea was upsetting my stomach. Just a blech feeling. Tried Patti's sour cherry drink - it's a really god cherry limeade! So yummy but it isn't helping my joints. My hips are getting worse. So I'm trying this from Rosetapper. The oils have no taste in some Sunny D ( left over from Thanksgiving for the nephews) but it is oily. Only been doing it 2 days, so I'll report back.

Rosetapper:

"That said, I can give you a couple of remedies that should work for your muscles and joints. First, you should take chelated manganese, which you may be deficient in and which is extremely necessary for the health of your muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Secondly, if you take 1/2 teaspoon of organic flaxseed oil and 3/4 teaspoon of organic safflower oil and mix them in a smoothie or glass of juice once a day, your muscles will stop aching almost immediately. Your joints should start feeling better, too, in a few days. I'm pretty sure these remedies will help you out--good luck! "

Same here with the nettle tea and my gut. Had to stop it.

I tried ginger tea--steeped it. Very good for gut, no help with bones/joints

Love the tart cherry juice and seltzer with lime, but no help with the ouchies.

I tried the omega oils for 2 months--for my muscles and connective tissues.....I did not notice anything.

Not being a downer, just honest. As I always am.

Hope they work for you, K!

Rosetapper has good luck with that protocol for her muscles.

I am off grains again. I started to notice less pain and overall, just better energy, etc.after 3 weeks...then at THanX, I had some grains....and the pain shot right back up.

well, Duh, Irish....

I stopped the nettle tea also. I kept some for trying later, but don't drink it every day now. Same thing with peppermint tea. I don't think people should drink it every day either. Ginger tea worked for a while, but I had to stop it also. And cinnamon, and chocolate tea. Some things seem to be ok in small occasional quantities, but not in constant consumption. At least for me that's how it works.

A friend of mine has life-threatening gout. He tried the cherry juice and it helped some, but then he started taking celery seed capsules (from the health food store). His gout which used to flare up on him every few days has not bothered him in MONTHS now. They say it is great for arthritis pain too.

wow thats amazing! What is nettle tea? Is it like an herbal tea? also, can you just get it at the grocery store? or health food stores?

Wanted to share this....I have been on a gluten-free diet for 1 1/2 years but for the longest time still having issues.....something in my body was being attacked randomly like a wild fire. I went completely grain free, sugar free 6 months ago and FINALLY after over a year the buzzing in my ears went away. If I did have any corn or rice I noticed my hands would get tight and my feet would hurt. So I tried nettle tea which claimed to help with inflammation.....BINGO, it worked!!!! I drank a cup every day the first week, now I drink a cup every other day and I can now have small amounts of corn and rice without my hands and feet hurting, and no more ringing in my ears!!!!

I get mine reasonably priced and delivered from Amazon. I have seen it at both the health food store and regular grocery store -- at the grocery it was labeled for prostate.

Skittles, nettle tea is made from the weed/plant, nettle. Have you ever heard of stringing nettle? It is a tall green plant that grows wild at least in Europe, not sure where all it grows. There are some teas that come mixed but I actually like the one that is nothing but nettles.

After my first week of more of daily nettle tea I backed off to 1-2 cups per week only steeping the tea for approx 1 minute (otherwise it is too strong for me) and I have not had any inflammation issues since. My body is no longer on fire and I am no longer chasing the next health issue. I actually feel normal now.

My husband has problems with gout and has been using the tea as long as I have and is reaping the benefits himself. We ran out at one point and he noticed he started having cramping in the arches of his feet which he had not even realized had gone away. He feels the tea keeps the cramps in his feet away. He drinks the tea almost daily but my body is super hyper sensative so I have to be real careful.

I read where a couple of people were talking about it healing inflamation. Are you talking about inflamation in the stomach? Just wondering because my stomach gets swollen sometimes if I eat something that doesn't agree with me. And it isn't always just gas.. sometimes it just feels inflammed.

Sorry no one answered -- inflammation everywhere in the body for me.

Update regarding Nettle Tea:

My son and I are still drinking once daily - he has one tea bag and I use two bags and let mine steep for a long time. We have found that if we skip a day or two our issues - my joint pain and abdomen bloat return slightly -- his sinuses become more stuffy -- this still has not cleared completely -- but is much improved since he has been drinking the tea.

I have found a reason that nettle tea is working for me -- it is a natural anti-histamine and I have recently found the connection between histamine containing and histamine stimulating foods to some of my unresolved symptoms -- I had already previously removed many histamine containing foods because many of them also contain lectins - removing them all has helped A LOT :)

Have been looking for a good - easy to understand list of histamine intolerance for the past month or so and found a very nice one yesterday -- here's the link if anyone is interested:

    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.      
    • Nice to know that Disney makes an effort to take care of people with allergies or special diets (like gluten free!): https://publicaffairs.disneyland.com/walt-disney-parks-resorts-receives-honors-allergy-friendly-fare/
    • Wow, I also had pyloric stenosis that was misdiagnosed for some weeks as an infant (and almost died from it).  I also have Raynauld’s and I started following celiac diet, finding an immediate improvement of my symptoms.  I thought I was the only one that had all 3 of these diagnoses.   Interesting.
    • If you are lucky enough to travel in the Spanish-speaking world, just about anywhere you go, you will very likely run into a some version of chicken and rice, or ‘Arroz con Pollo’ as it appears on countless menus. This Cuban-style version relies on annatto oil to give it a red color. You can make your own annatto oil by putting achiote chili seeds in vegetable oil and heating it up for a few minutes over the stove. Cool and store. This version of chicken and rice is tasty, gluten-free and keeps well in the freezer. View the full article
    • I was diagnosed with celiac at the end of October. My DGP IgA was tested September 12th and was 127. I just got it retested and it was 135. I have been eating gluten free since I was diagnosed. I thought the numbers should be going down. How long does it usually take for the numbers to start dropping? Right now I feel like I must be getting cross contamination somewhere.
