    I found out I was gluten intollerant in November 2010 and stopped all Gluten at that time. In December I found out my food allergies and stopped those. In mid January I got on the vitamins. But I'm still experiencing my IBS symptoms. How long did it take you guys to get healthy?

    Not there yet either, I've taken the long road.  Started out gluten free (traditional), that was June 2009.  I went dairy free very shortly after that and slowly over another year's time realized soy, grain free and sugar free were necessary for me too.  I was recently diagnosed with leaky gut so that's why it's taken me so long.  I hope you heal up much faster than I am.  Patience is a virtue, perseverance is a MUST!

    Laura,

    If you are having IBS symptoms I would encourage you to check into candida and/or the specific carbohydrate diet.  I don't know as much about the SCDiet, but I know a lot of people have success with it.  Also, if you can find a functional medicine Doctor or some kind of natural Doctor, that might help too.  Like mom24es says: Perseverance is a MUST!  I too started out tradition GF, then went grain free and am now on a candida diet which has help with weight loss and many other issues.  My doctor has put on many supplements to help with the diarrhea from colitis.  I too have leaky gut syndrome, which is a longer row to hoe, but we can do it! (with that perseverance)

    Good luck Laura and don't give up!

    Thanks guys. I have Dr. Osborne for my doctor so I think I'm in good hands on that. I'm on a true gluten free diet and also eating mostly all organic food. I just wasn't sure if I was the only one that didn't get better right away. Its nice to hear from others that it takes time. I do think I have leaky gut since I developed further allergies. I tried candida diet last year for 3 months (but I was eating rice). I don't need to lose weight…IBS has already taken care of that for me (unfortunately). So I greatly appreciate the encouragement. I'd love to hear from more of you on if you are still struggling with your symptoms after being gluten free for a while. Just don't want to feel discouraged, thinking this diet isn't going to work. Thanks!
