  1. Rice can have a similar effect to gluten on your brain, with the gluten like starch. Sweet potato is a complex food like potatoes so although I don't strictly rule it out, some people would still have a problem with it... nothing to do with the AIP food list.
  2. Hi, I have brain fog today for the first time in 3 weeks. I had cut out all grains and stopped eating rice by chance and had it after 3 weeks and it made me ill. That was last month. This time it was a dairy milk ice cream. I also ate mayonnaise yesterday before I realised it has corn in it....
  3. Hi, yes. I once sat next to someone who was eating a sausage roll in a house that was being plastered. I couldn't feel anything from the waist down and had to check my legs were still there. It's as though my brain is numbed. The manufacturer of the plaster said it contained wheat gluten as a...
  4. Yes, good point, thank you, Kareng. I lifted that quote, should've been more careful. The only yeast I am able to eat is Dove's Farm Yeast.
  5. To prevent and/or treat pellagra, prescribe a protein-rich diet with adequate calories. The addition of meats, milk, peanuts, leafy green vegetables, whole or enriched grains, and brewer's dry yeast can enhance niacin intake.
  6. Hi Celina, It took my family ten years to take it seriously and it is because I did. I realised that I could say I only eat food I prepare myself. When I knew my mum took it seriously I would eat food she cooked for me. I could have offended her recently when she made me a cup of tea but...
  7. That is the point, Gemini. You do not do well without grains, but some people are reacting to lots of foods, without knowing what to. Some people need to cut out food groups in order to heal and then bring them back one at a time. Without elimination we don't know what we are reacting to. Some...
  8. I am sensitive even to airborne gluten, including in aerosols, kitchens where an oven is cooking gluten containing food, or has been recently, plaster dust in building materials. I work, but suffer migraine when I have fully ingested gluten and numbness and muscle weakness from smells. Does anyone...
  9. So do I. I even get glutened with brain fog, intestinal issues, fatigue, numbness and muscle spasms from aerosols or bakery or sometimes plaster dust and the gluten found in building materials.
  10. I am sensitive to trace gluten, but when I was out with wider family and desperately hungry with no food or drink and found a can of coke, uncharacteristically I downed it with no ill effects. I drink probably one can every two years, not a regular occurrence. If it was going to give me problems...
  11. Hi, Your gut will take time to heal and some foods are more difficult to digest than others, so during the healing process foods that encourage bad bacteria should be avoided. This book was written by someone who had been given an ultimatum by doctors, who said removal of the colon was the...
  12. Hi Jm34, After ten years of gluten free diets on and off and suffering all sorts of problems, I've discovered a sensitivity to maize. I also had heart problems after lasagne, bolognese and pizza (all gluten free), but when I ate pizza made with baked beans instead of tomatoes and with less...
  13. Gemini, you misunderstand me in your defence. I said, making things worse is to say something unhelpful. I wasn't referring to you, only that I was offering support. Newly diagnosed people need support.
  14. Hi Gemini, Cross-reactivity is not relevant in the context of oats, but it certainly isn't a myth. If OP is suffering after eating oats, perhaps they are one of the few who DO react to oats. Let's not fall out here or have side-discussions. I care a great deal about helping people who are suffering...
