is that true that onions and garlics helped me out?

Any superfoods will help the body heal, so yes, they are helping you.

Yeah, kind of funny my husband and I watched Eric's video the other day. http://www.battleforhealth.com and it really struck me about the inflammation.

It seems like there is a lot of hubub in the mainstream correllating inflammation with disease. There is even a MLM commercial on TV for a superjuice that calms inflammation that sites all of these "inflammation bad" articles.

Question: What's causing inflammation? (A truly inquisitive mind would ask that instead of looking to only treat symptoms).... Could it be... drumroll... the food we eat and the things we take into our body? Ding ding ding.

Perhaps not the only cause, but hit me like a ton of bricks. Thanks, Eric for the visual. Thanks Dr. D for putting the pieces together.

Hang in there khoipri! I know exactly how you feel and it will get better. I've only been on the BTD/GTD for a little while now but I was diagnosed with celiac disease 2 years ago and have been gluten free since. I was 20 when I got diagnosed and it took me a long time to heal (I don't remember how long but I remember reading that it can take up to a year depending on the amount of damage). Maybe since you're starting the BTD/GTD the same time as going gluten free you might heal a lot faster than I did. I know it can be really frustrating at first but hang in there because you will feel amazing after you fully heal.   I feel alive again and finally have energy instead of being so tired all the time (I'm sure this is also due to the BTD/GTD).   I'm actually feeling so good that yesterday I tried gluten free oats for the first time and I feel fine! I think that means my gut is finally healed so don't worry because there is hope.

Thank you, Amazon.

I feel better now than 2 weeks ago. The thing making me sad at the very first time was that i had to stop eating tasty cakes, breads since here i cant find gluten-free wheat  . Though, i do really love diet, GTD. Because i dont buy dairy and wheat products any more, it helps me save a lot



Thank life that every morning i wake up, i have one more day to love!

The mourning will pass. It's natural, because these foods exhibit a powerful dopamine kick to the brain (somewhat addictive). Just be careful if you are looking to substitute any pre-prepared food as they likely have avoids as well.

I have tried to eat raw onions and raw garlics mixed with rice and some other benificials, ground toasted sesame for 3 days, it is really good though it made me cry at the very first time and i feel better with my irritable bowel, and can sleep. I have just gained another 5 lbs in about 2 weeks, so happy . is that true that onions and garlics helped me out?


Good for you khoipri,
You can also saute the onions, you don't have to eat it raw to gain the benefit.  It would help lots w/ the crying.

Random, but here's a press release I came across about statistics on the diagnosis of celiac. A lot of this was in a lecture Dr Fasano gave in May, plus more. Still need to replay my interview.

You can be quite sensitive to lectins when you are just beginning to be gluten free.  I like to call gluten a super-lectin because it has great holding power on our cells.  The other super-lectins are milk, corn and soy.  Some of those only glom onto some type's cells, but if you are unsure what type you are, you may feel better avoiding them all until you find out for sure your type.  I had to stick with a very simple and basic diet for the first four months or so.  I was having wicked reactions to things as inconsequential as xanthan gum... but that all improved once I went through the initial healing phase.

I feel absolutely sure that mono triggered my celiac disease, and I've seen members of my family have similar downward health spirals after mono.  Not all of them have been tested for celiac or willing to go gluten free yet, but I have told them to many times...the celiac gene is very strong in my family.
