I have eliminated gluten from my diet. However, I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a colon cleanse or detox? I know there are plenty of colon cleanse products. It seems like it would be a good idea to use one to help clean out.
Here Is a kicker, I had started a diet the 80/10/10 kind of, read half the book, and went full into the breakfast and lunch diet. Unlike most or maybe some of yall. Had a good diet before finding out you had a gluten or soy or what other issues. I lived on a Fast-food diet for 20 years. Some home cooked, but that was mostly box meals, processed foods. Finding out my pain for the past entire lifetime was because of gluten and soy and god forbid something else. I resorted to few foods, and starved myself the first 2 weeks until I could figure what foods to eat. IM NOT RICH. I'm averagely poor. This Gluten and soy had ravage my body so badly I Had lost My Business that supported me and my family. Now I’m just picking up the pieces of my life. I FEEL GREAT, hope the go back and get things running again soon and get my Biz back up and running. Until then. I have to make due what I got and buy what I can afford. So getting back to the Topic. I lived on a fast food diet, moved to home cooking after finding gluten and soy. The new diet included corn chips meat eggs and beans, soda. Can’t say that’s very healthy. So I looked for anything that could help. They raise you on a diet in school. its all you know. Cutting out gluten and then soy, cuts out 95% what’s in grocery stores. That 5% sucks. So I started eating the basics fruits and vegetables. The second day I thought I’d cross-contaminated something so bad, as if Id eaten a pizza or drank a glass of soy milk. I do realize now I'm detoxing. OMG I can’t believe how bad I feel, the fog everything hit me. But one thing was out of place. I had allot of energy. But still have knots in my stomach.
petitesteph posted a topic in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac DiseaseHi everyone, I was diagnosed as being 'gluten sensitive' (whatever that means) about 5 months ago when a doctor finally realized my 'malabsorption' of magnesium and other vitamins was causing my life long (23 years) migraine disorder. After months of taking a 3x the regular dose of vitamins just to stay alive - a doc finally made the gluten connection. Now I can stop spending all my money on vitamins! Anyways, I started a strict gluten-free diet almost a month ago, and after an initial 2 week period in which I felt INCREDIBLE - I feel like I'm hitting some serious detox symptoms. I missed a period completely (has never happened before, and it's back now - not pregnant), I broke out in RIDICULOUS acne on my face, back and chest (I've always had mild acne.. but it now worse than it has EVER been) and I've been ridiculously hungry and cranky. I ate more in two weeks than I ever had in my LIFE. I feel like the symptoms are starting to let up a bit now - but they hit their real peek about 1.5 months into being gluten free. My period is back, and most of the acne is starting to scab over.. but man I wanted to hide underground things got so bad.. So, this is plea in hopes that my experience isn't totally abnormal - perhaps there is some light at the end of this tunnel?? is this going to get better ? Any advice or experience would be appreciated. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. Reading this forum has been a lifesaver for me overall. **also, since going gluten-free and being able to slightly lower the vitamin dose - I am still migraine free! So that is one good thing. (and by migraine disorder, I mean it was so bad I was considered disabled until this year.. A MIRACLE)
I am confused and hoping someone can help me understand what is going on. I was diagnosed and undiagnosed several times 2 years ago; tested due to stomach, malnutrion, BRAIN FOG, etc... issues. In September of 2011 I went gluten free and stayed that way for a full year. I worked hard to be careful, but felt I was constantly getting accidentally contaminated because stomach symptoms would occur. I can't remember how my brain fog was affected (heavy sigh). One day my stomach issues resolved. I can remember the moment it happened, the nauseau just went away after about 9 months. I continued to be gluten free until October of 2012. For some reason, I decided to go back to eating gluten and was not suffering stomach issues, which were my most debilitating symptom. This indicated to me that I didn't have Celiac. I then started having very severe brain fog and my nose started running that day and has never stopped. The brain fog this time was intense and impacting all areas of my life. I decided to go gluten free to see if that has an affect. Brain fog has improved dramatically, but I am dealing with all kinds of new symptoms now that I am gluten free like: rashes, huge blisters in my mouth, acne, and weak immune system. My question is why now am I getting all these weird side effects? Is it because my system is clean and getting guttened causes this? Is it because I'm detoxing from going gluten free? I am so confused. I am not sure if gluten free is the correct course of action with all the side effects. Any experience in this area would be so appreciated.
