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!
You are smart to stop eating what bothers you. I truly believe grains are slowly killing people. I know a lot of people here would agree. I still try to convince people sometimes and some of those people are REALLY sick with things I believe this diet would help. It is so hard for me to understand being so addicted to food that you can't change your way of eating in order to feel better. But, then I think about it and it took me forever to decide to do something. Even though I always knew I was obese I chose not to do anything about it. It took a medical diagnosis for me to finally change my way of eating. So, all you can do is hope and pray they will find a reason to change their way of eating. Living with the doubters is hard but probably what you will have to do. Just don't let them be food pushers and try to sabotage your diet. You are doing the right thing!
I am on a cadida diet so I use xylitol or stevia instead of sugar, apple cider vinegar instead of white, and I use grapeseed oil or olive oil (sometimes olive is too strong tasting) I also do not whisk by hand, I use a blender, you have to add the oil by dribbling it in and I mean DRIBBLING. If you add it too fast it will not turn out. Do a search online and read several recipes, it will help when you decide to do it and give you a few hints.
Oh and tonight I made tacos for everyone and I made mine a salad without cheese. I do not use taco seasoning from store, I just season with chili powder, cumin, garlic and salt (no real recipe just dump some in) that is very good too. Tonight I actually cooked some wild rice and mixed it in with the burger, I REALLY LIKE THAT! Look in the recipe section on this sight there are some other good meals as well. Another quick one for me is salmon, dipped in egg and then almond flour and fried in grapeseed oil or olive oil (or you oil of choice). Also, any recipe calling for milk I have had success substituting coconut milk, it has a little different flavor but I like it. If it calls for butter I use coconut oil.
oops I thought you told us before that quinoa was safe. How about Buckwheat what is your thought on that?
I like to make egg salad. You have to make your own homemade mayo, which can be a challenge (just bought a new blender just for that). I love this it is such a treat for me!
What kind of bread did you use? Mine doesn't seem like the kind that would work for stuffing. I use the one from Elana Amsterdam's almond flour cookbook. It sounds good, just worried about the bread. Thanks so much!!!!
Keep snacks on hand. I try to keep boiled eggs, nuts, fruits and raw veggies ready to eat. I also like to make hummus to dip the veggies in. I found a good source for nuts and they are guaranteed gluten free it is a website http://www.nutsonline.com . Also, there are many cookbooks and websites for grainfree recipes. Dr. O has a cookbook here and there is one by Elana Amsterdam called, “The Gluten-Free Almond Flour cookbook. I love that book, I make recipes out of it all the time. There is even a sandwich bread recipe, it is different than you are used to eating, but it is great to be able to make a sandwich! (or have a cupcake!)
Good luck and come here for help when you need it!
This is so maddening to me that we can't even find fever reducers that aren't filled with all of this poison. Why does this all have to be so difficult!
I know quinoa and wild rice are not grains. However, the trick is to find a source that is safe and not cross contaminated by gluten or other grains. Does anyone have suggestions for this? I would like to know myself.January 8, 2011 at 11:00 am in reply to: Symptoms of Glutinisation, do they change over time ?? #8919
Mine have always been the same gastrointestinal, but that is only me don't know about everyone else. Have you ever thought about probiotics. We damage our guts so bad while eating gluten, sometimes we need a probiotic to help get rid of all of that bad bacteria in there.
I don't know anything about Doctors in Texas, but if your heart is telling you it is yeast, it isn't going to hurt anything to start the candida diet. If you need help with that the website http://www.knowthecause.com has a diet called the phase 1 diet. It is the candida diet. He also recommends different supplements that kill yeast. It isn't going to hurt you to try. I would also try a probiotic. Just something I have found helpful. Goodluck, I know how hard it is to find a good Dr. I found mine through a friend and am sooooo thankful for him. Also, my Doctor is called a functional medicine Dr. maybe you could do a google search for that. Keep asking everyone you know, ask at health food stores, sometimes they know more that anyone. If you have any questions ask away that's what we are here for to support you!
woo hoo that is GREAT!
That is wonderful, just the hope that he may actually be tested. Remember if he decides not to do it now, the seed is planted and he will probably do it sooner or later. Because, he will start noticing everything he eats and how it affects him! I'm so happy, I know how glad you must be!
Alcohol also has fungus in it. You may want to think about being tested for Candida. I'm seeing gluten intolerance and candida go hand and hand for a lot of people. (just a thought)
Well if you need another seed, tell him to talk to me. My Doctor told me I also have Candida as well as gluten intolerance and since I have changed my diet to a candida diet and am taking supplements my Dr. gave me I have NO MORE restless leg syndrome. I was the same way I had it so bad, my husband would go sleep in another room because I was kicking him all night long. I would wake up and felt like I ran a race all night long, I was so tired and could hardly drag myself out of bed. Now, I wake up between 6 and 7 every day sometimes earlier. I hop out of bed and am ready to go I feel GREAT! I had to do more than just grain free to get there, he needs to find a good funcitonal medicine Dr. or someone like Dr. O. Tell him all he needs to do is got on this website and read all of our posts. I did find out though, that trying to cure yourself on your own is almost impossible. We need to go have all of the different testing done, so we know exactly what supplements we need and exactly what diet to be on. I was close on my own, by following Dr. O's grain free diet, but I also had to give up sweetner (diet coke was hard), potatoes (anything high in starch), vinegar ( I use some apple cider vinegar). I no longer use ketchup or mustard, but I have found a way to make some ketchup with xylitol and tomato sauce and tomato paste.
Just keep planting seeds and hopefully it will sink in sometime. I have 4 children that have a 100% chance of having gluten intolerance because I have the celiac gene and the gluten intolerant gene, but none of them will follow the diet ages 17 – 22. They are old enough now they have to chose their own path. I did overhear both of my daughters saying they have tried a couple of times, so I know there is still hope they will change.
