  1. Also some cold meds can make you feel a bit spacey. I know that anything with phenylephrine in it tends to make me feel a bit vacant. At the moment I'm getting a similar thing from some nasty antibiotics, and it used to happen if I had...
  2. Is it really true about the colour of beet coming out in your urine being a sign of leaky gut? I remember as kids, me and my young brothers and sisters all laughing hysterically at each others purple- filled potties after pickled beetroot...

    Iud Options

    It's not necessarily true that IUDs are only for those who have given birth. I chose to have the paraguard even though I've no children. It wasn't PARTICULARLY uncomfortable to have put in - though obviously not much fun either. However...
  4. Codeine can cause stomach pain - I'm not sure exactly what it does, but I found that if I took it for any length of time, then when I stopped I would have that awful raw feeling in my stomach. It took a good week for the rebound D (after...
  5. ...actually I've just checked, and don't think flaxseed is legal. Which is a shame, as it seems to be the only thing that holds my biscuits together! Ah well. Sorry bout that. I'll try coconut milk, but I have a vague memory of trying...
  6. I've been experimenting with the SCD life, but miss milky tea like you wouldn't believe! All the commercial nut milks have sugar in them (and are thin and expensive) and my own attempts at making nut milks have been less than perfect. I...
  7. I'm always reading that difflucan is not a good thing to take for candida, because it damages your all your gut flora. I admit I know very little regarding the details of this - but I was wondering if you could do a strong course of difflucan...
  8. I thought I had ADD before I found out I had celiac disease. Now I don't - but I really do go back to my old self when I get glutened! My memory is starting to really improve now, and my focus and mental clarity is just joyful to me! Also...
  9. When my insides are playing up i often wake very early in the morning, feeling fine, but VERY tense. It gradually builds up, and finally my stomach tells me why it woke me up, in a most unpleasant way. There is a strange rise of tension...

    Starving/always Hungry

    How much fat do you eat? I think we need more than is generally thought, especially good quality organic animal fats, butter, coconut oil and olive oil. I find that the more fat i eat, the more satisfied I feel. And I can easily go all...
  11. AliB, I appreciate your repeated references to the SCD. I'd been feeling somewhat better on the gluten-free diet, but old symptoms were creeping back in. I was quite sure i wasn't being glutened, so I cut out pretty much all starchy...
  12. I haven't had a period in ages, and am hoping to welcome my old friend Flo with a small party when/if she returns! .... hopefully she won't come back as vigorously as she used to though ... 2-3 weeks of heavy bleeding with breaks of months...
  13. Be really cautious about going back "off the wagon" again. It feels worse each time you try to give up gluten, and then go back again. Also in the first of the 2 links there was a statistic: "Mortality in patients with celiac disease...
  14. Did your new allergies appear after you stopped eating gluten? I'm not sure why but it seems to be quite common for this to happen. When I stopped eating gluten, suddenly I became intolerant to dairy - but now I am eating gluten again...
  15. I was wondering too, but yours doesn't sound like mine. Maybe we need a poo analysis forum! Sorry bout this but ... it sticks to the sides and looks greasy/sticky. Every time I have gluten - or corn/rice for that matter!
