  1. I don't have much confidence in gluten free restaurants. It takes a lot of knowledge and dedication to eliminate all cross contamination and to make sure all ingredients are gluten free. Restaurant workers in general just don't have that type of training.
  2. I seem to do best on whole foods only diet, without grain. I have multiple food sensitivities though. Other people seem to tolerate gluten free bread fine. Almond milk is probably a safe bet as it has fewer problematic ingredients than bread. You can try the bread though and see if it works for you.
  3. I recommend going gluten free and staying that way permanently. There is such a thing as non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Have you been tested for an allergic reaction to wheat? A lot of people are allergic to wheat. Here is a link on NCGS. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3641836/ Some people on this forum talk about having gluten withdrawal symptoms, including some who have had what is called gluten ataxia. For some people wheat can cause brain damage. Wheat is in just about anything so I recommend trying the following diet. It can take a very long time for the brain to heal. Very small amounts of cross contamination can be a big problem for some people. https://glutenintoleranceschool.com/gluten-contamination-elimination-diet/ I take a complete multivitamin, extra magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids. I also take L-glutamine powder. I also get very strong anxiety if I eat wheat. I am also sensitive to some other grains.

    Emotional Symptoms

    I am not sure. You might try extra magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, and a gluten free complete multi-vitamin. If you are suicidal you should get help and talk to a doctor about medication. If the body is short on Niacin, it will convert neurotransmitters into Niacin. I wonder if this has something to do with why some people experience emotional symptoms after eating wheat.
  5. To get a celiac diagnosis a blood test and a biopsy is required. Both require eating gluten for a while before the test. There is no way to tell for sure if you are celiac or not without a proper diagnosis. There are huge health risks though if you continue eating wheat and have celiac disease. The symptoms of celiac disease can change at different times and get better and worse as the body adjusts. By the time someone notices symptoms it can mean a lot of damage has already been done to the intestine. I am not a doctor, so I can't tell if the damage to your intestine was caused by Celiac disease or not. There are other possibilities. I hope this helps! https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/celiacdiseasesymptoms/

  7. I don't know. I am guessing though that you could put a crumb or something similar in the pan. Once the crumb is completely turned to charcoal the pan is good to use.
  8. You can heat them really hot and the gluten will turn to charcoal which is gluten free. You could have another food sensitivity though besides gluten.
  9. There are other types of digestive problems besides celiacs and you might want to get tested for them. Mild food allergies can cause IBS in some cases. You could get blood test to see if you are deficient in any vitamins. Maybe you could try rotate your foods to see if it effects anything? You could try an AIP diet, a foodmap diet, or an elimination diet. Those are some ideas.
  10. I take a complete multivitamin, fish oil (for extra omega-3 fatty acids), and extra niacin. It is common for people with celiac disease to be deficient in vitamins and minerals. It can also take a while for the body to absorb different vitamins and distribute them to proper cells. The body can convert neurotransmitter precursors into niacin if deficient. Other food in tolerances are linked to emotional problems. You can google "h pylori natural remedies" Citric acid is in lots of fruits and vegetables and I wouldn't think it would be a problem. Maybe it is a problem with other ingredients? I don't do well with processed food or natural flavors or carmel color, I don't think. I am guessing it is a corn sensitivity issue for me. I avoid dairy, grain, legumes, and processed food. I just eat fruit, vegetables and meat. That seems to work best so far. Otherwise I get confused and irritable.
  11. I just use regular (banana boat) sunscreen. I don't think that any sunscreen contains gluten but I could be wrong. Someone else here might know more about that. Touching gluten is safe so long as it doesn't end up in the mouth.
  12. A lot of foods such as fruit contain citric acid. It is unlikely that citric acid should be a problem for anyone with a corn allergy as it contains no protein. I can't eat corn very well, but haven't noticed any problems with critic acid.
  13. It probably depends on the person. I think there is some tolerance. You may be able to get away with eating one crumb per day, or something, without it destroying your gut. That is not recommended though. It takes up to 2 weeks to heal the gut if you are healthy and a lot longer in some cases. https://tinyurl.com/y9774l9q
  14. I have done research on the topic. I agree that the idea of cross reactivity is a myth. The vast majority of people with Celiac disease are able to heal their gut by by eliminating gluten from there diet. If they don't recover on a gluten free diet it is called refractory Celiac disease. My understanding though is that refractory Celiac disease is very rare. If other foods caused cross reaction it would be very common. Other foods sensitivities can be serious though in some cases. There are autoimmune disorders that are linked to other food sensitivities besides gluten. How the body and the immune system work is complex. Many things can cause digestive trouble. If food moves through the digestive system to quickly there is not enough time to absorb vitamin b12. I can see why other foods, besides gluten, might be a problem for some people for this reason and for other reasons.

    Psychosis Episode

    A few other things that may be helpful include: Stress reduction techniques. There are some websites that offer helpful advice on the topic. Eating more fish as it is high in omega-3 fatty acids. Glutamine powder (food for the gut) Eating lots of fruit and vegetables. Grapefruit, for example, has lots of inositol which may improve cognitive function. Fruit and veggies are high in flavinoids which are beneficial.
