  1. Hello guys this is my first post forgive the long post but my situation is complicated. I just got out of bed as I had to cause of Night Sweats, I hate them, I did go with my wife and kids to the centre of town (London) to see a chinese TCM doc and so we went to China town to a restaurant, its been cold also and the stress of the kids having tantrums I think sent me overboard. I must say though for 3 nights have had terrible night sweats BUT the previous 3 days I ate wheat and dairy which I usually avoid, I had ricotta cheese and Italian wheat bread, gluten free lasagna but has cheese/ and my wife made chinese food with soy sauce, chinese restaurant food. My symptoms are sneezing, roof of the mouth hurts and when I sneeze its as if Ive just torn a layer of skin or something from the roof of the mouth, night sweats, mucus in the mornings. I suppose the stress I have in my life doesnt help, Im lowering my medication (Paxil) and hope to reduce and stop Prilosec also as I believe it maybe the reason I have a damaged intestine or leaky gut seeing as chronic low stomach acid could allow bad bacteria to migrate from the stomach to the duodenum etc, low stomach acid food arriving in the duodenum doesnt have the acid trigger that you need to send a message to the pancreas to digest the food and so partially digested food feeds the bad bacteria, right? I also did coffee enemas for 9yrs daily an this may have damaged my duodenum/small intestine cause bile is released each time and bile is slightly corrosive? I stopped doing them now but not sure which diet to follow, Ive heard of FODMAPs diet, SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet), Mcdoughall high starch low fat/oil diet, Keto, low carb, Mediterranean. Im confused which diet to follow cause I have a few issues, fatty liver, gallbladder polyps, GERD/Hiatal Hernia, depression/Anxiety all diagnosed but the leaky gut, or Gluten intolerance hasn't been diagnosed, maybe I should get an allaergy test, I think I'll test positive even for water at least it seems this way, that my body is becoming intolerant to many foods and the list seems like its growing. I wasn't gluten intolerant from birth, this is what the Chinese doc said to me yesterday, she said I doubt if your Gluten problem started 4 yrs ago, usually people have it from birth, i thought what is she talking about, I', Italian and I ate mamas lasagna, spaghetti, bolognese, minestrone etc as Italians we ate a paste based meal everyday and this was for decades I ate wheat, I ate bread as well and processed foods, surely I would have known sooner and reacted sooner? I started reacting 4 yrs ago and intially was going nuts cause I thought I had dust allergy and thought |I was allergic to my home, to mold, insects, the air, I just didnt make the food connection, until I read about Gluten, then i started to avoid Gluten and started to eat Gluten free bread (took some getting used to), finally after 3 to 4 yrs some relief, now I cannot eat Gluten and even Dairy, sometimes I find sugar/stress and potato skins gives me auto immune problem symptoms like red hot ear (Relapsing polychondritis?) This is just my intro I have written a longer letter to give to a doc, but not sure which doc could help me, I will send it in a few minutes once Ive finished it, the chinese doc I saw says we cannot shrink the polyp and is too expensive with her herbs but will try for a few weeks to see if I feel better, the reason why I like the chinese approach is that they treat you whole-istically cause I have too many things going on for a one size fits all approach, one remedy or diet may harm or worsen another problem that I have. Thankyou guys for reading any help or advice will be much appreciated, thanks. Gerald
  2. Hi guys, I'm new here and just wanted some advice. I'm gluten intolerant (pretty sure I've been all my life but it only became apparent until it got really bad at the beginning of last year). I had colic when i was a baby (don't know if this is a connection), I've had keratosis pilaris since i was 5 (it progessively got worse and spread all across my entire body) and constipation for as long as I can remember. I'm now 19 and I've had severe constipaton for about 2 years (go less than once a week and it's painful) i have an ENORMOUS amount of gas and get really bloated to the point that I'm on the floor in pain because my stomach is so huge and I only get some relief if I'm able to release some gas. I've also recently started noticing undigested food particles and I've just started developing eczema. I've got chronic fatigue syndrome and a hormone imbalance and a range of nutritional deficiencies. I've had the blood test for celiac disease twice, but both times it comes back negative for the celiac antibodies but i have a high C-reactive protein. Going gluten free has in no way cured me, and I find that i only get some relief when I don't eat starchy or sugary things. Basically what I'm wondering is whether I should be on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (normal/advanced) or the GAPS diet? I have no clue and my doctor is extremely unhelpful! Everything I'm reading is relating to celiac disease and diarrhoea, but nothing talks about constipation. If I do either diet, am i still supposed to cook the veges etc or should I be having it raw so there's more fibre? Any advice would be much appreciated!!!
  3. I've been having some crazy success with the diet, but I just have some questions for anyone else that's followed it longer. This is my main concern: Before SCD, I have alternating, almost constant, C and D. It was horrible, and it was impossible to predict which days I'd need to stick around a toilet and which ones would render it obsolete. It was one of my many unbearable symptoms. And it's gone! The (vicious) cycle has been broken, I'm a free man! But, um... While I feel great (And have lost plenty of weight), I still have C. I'm not sure what's going on. I don't feel bloated, I'm dropping pounds, food is going in, almost nothing is coming out. I maybe have one or two bowel movements a week. It's weird, because I urinate a lot more than before. Is this a cause for concern? I feel great (unless I don't eat enough, then my body hates me because I have a very active job), but it's just... Not coming out. I used to have a serious dehydration issue so I drink water as much as I'm able. I eat what I can, but it consists of high meat content, with fruits and vegetable thrown into the mix. Please help me out, I'd really appreciate it! Also: Has anyone found any can't-haves NOT outlined in the SCD diet? I Recently found out I have a strange sensitivity to bananas. Also, I have a pre-existing issue with Casein that gives me mind-obliterating migraines after excessive consumption. Thank you!
  4. I'm planning on starting the specific carbohydrate diet soon....The SCD diet is based off of Elaine Gottschall's book Breaking the Vicious Cycle. It cuts out grains, sugars, processed foods and many other foods that cause problems. It is a very strict diet and needs 100% adherence, but I've heard testimonies of so many people healing their intestines because they followed it so closely. Perhaps you were thinking about starting the SCD diet, too, because the gluten free diet just isn't cutting it. If so, I would love to have an accountability partner to keep each other accountable (and who knows, there may be others!). This is my second time around and I want to follow it 100% right this time. I'm making a committment to try it for 90 days. If that's you too, let me know, and let's get healthy together!! I'm committed to seeing huge results after 90 days. It's going to be hard but worth it.
  5. So, after reading a post here the other day, I was intriqued by the the book, Breaking The Viscious Cycle, which describes the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD). You see, after a period of over one year (very strict adherence to the diet), my oldest son's ttg IgA levels are still positive (currently at 95 down from a starting point of about 150+). His DGP levels are negative and have been for while, which I read means that it proves he has no gluten in his system. But, the positive ttg IgA level means his gut is still not healing. He has no symptoms other than low growth. So, we bought the book and are starting within a few days. I bought the yogurt maker today (along with an ice cream maker, because I want to make homemade ice cream from the yogurt). I'd love to hear about anyone's experience with SCD.
