Contaminated mushrooms.....they often grow them from rye or barley seeds that they put the spores on or grow in a compost that con contain wheat...in my case the company says they used rye seeds for the starter. (called after the fact) I assumed the sliced prewashed ones would be safe and they were on sale....go figure. Anyway Might try my tips for using microwave prep ware for awhile things are cheap. Clean out the microwave put paper towels down inside and cover your food if you need to. Jen gave some decent tips also. I might say if you do dry beans watch out for them also, I am on a keto/paleo diet myself pretty much a very low carb diet consisting of mostly nuts, seeds, egg whites, low carb veggies ......
^Steamers, egg cookers, splatter guards. egg poachers, bacon racks, etc...everything you need to fix your meal in a microwave without pots or pans and cheap... you find alot of them in the microwave section of walmart. I even make make shift tortilla bu using the plates with a lip or the omelette maker and mixing up egg whites, with a tbsp or two of coconut flour and sometimes another nut meal pouring it in and cooking for 1-2 mins making a thin sheet I can use to roll stuff up in.
I live in a house where some people eat bread. I do not use the toaster that toasts regular bread. All sandwiches are made in a special area of the kitchen and I do not prepare any of our other food there. If you have touched bread, you have to wash your hands before you touch anything else in the kitchen. After you eat bread, the dishes go directly (and only) into the sink. I rinse any plates and forks extremely well that have had bread on them and then I put them in the dishwasher (they essentially get washed twice). Then I rinse out the sink. I have a separate dish scrubber that I use when the plates have had anything with gluten on them.
We don't cook with flour or bake with real flour(except once a year when I let my kids make their birthday cakes). The flour goes everywhere and coats the surface of countertops.
Do you make all your soups from scratch? A lot of soups have flour as a thickener. Also Nuts are often times made in facilities that process wheat. Planters nuts seem to be pretty safe or shop at Nuts.com - they have quite a few options.
Hope you feel better soon!
Yes, I was. I had two weak positive blood work, then an endoscopy not for celiac but was very inflamed, and one positive genetic for celiac. My diet is very limited right now. I am almost paleo. I am really struggling to find food that I can eat and not bother my stomach. I eat a lot of nuts, peanuts, beans, chicken, veggies, fruit, and soups. I have cleaned out the house from gluten (except for my dad's rolls ) I can not change out pans and cookware. I could try to get my own personal but it would be hard.
How did you get glutened?
If you have POTS you should look into Magnesium.
Here is a thread started by Ennis_Tx that talks about some of it's many benefits.
Also see this link from the affibers.org website that mentions specifically Magnesium Taurate's role in arrhythymia's.
I also recommend trying some some Niacinamide and/or a 100 B-complex 3/day.
B vitamins help us manage our stress.
If it (Niacinamide) or the B-100 or B-50 causes you to burp in 2 or 3 months (which has Niacinamide in them) then your symptom's could be caused by co-morbid pellagra.
Knitty Kitty has given you good advice as well since Celiac's are low in many nutrient's often.
Here is my blog post that explains what I believe happened to me.
I hope it helps you thleensd the way it did me.
Take a B-complex for couple months to see if it helps.
Frequency is more important than the amount.
2x day of of a b-complex will allow your serum levels to stay high throughout the day helping you recover 2x as fast as once a day. Do the same with Magnesium Glycinate or Magnesium Taurate (2 to 3 times a day in divided doses) and I think your fatigue will greatly improve or at least your energy levels will increase greatly.
I hope this is helpful.
****this is not medical advice only some of the things I did to help myself.
I am too sharing in hopes that other people will hear my story and believe . . .
