I had some white lines too. Not as many as some O's here posted but I had a few white lines.

Good to hear you are getting better, Mayflowers!
Wheat gluten is an ugly animal.
That ear thing is weird, huh? I actually hear my inner ears squeak when I blow my nose
then sometimes get a strong dizzy feeling that pushes my body from one side to the other...really bizarre....It takes about 2 minutes of slow breathing , eyes closed, until it stops. Could it be a symptom of vertigo?

I have stopped eating wheat products and most dairy for 2 1/2 weeks with 4 lb. wt. loss almost immediately and stomach upsets seemed to disappear. I also lost a lot of the bloat that I'd been carrying around.

A few days ago, I added Ezekial spelt bread, 1 slice toasted with breakfast. Now, I've got a new skin issue - itchy bumps and rash-like symptoms, mostly on my upper body. I'm wondering if this is simply the toxins working out through my skin.

Is this something anyone else has experienced with the BTD diet?

Last time I checked I think the company that makes Ezekial bread had changed their recipe to include wheat...

Probably your sinus. If it clogs your ears, then you can get dizziness. I would get dizziness when I had a sinus infection. I also have a ear wax problem.. It could be that.

You are so right, Possum! The Ezekial bread does have wheat gluten now. I stopped eating it and will see if these itchy bumps disappear. Thanks and love your dancing kitty. She always makes me smile

Try the Exekial Sprouted Wheat English Muffins. They don't have the added wheat gluten. They are so good.

Also I see more and more products that are gluten free.... I wish there were more products milk free too.

The vast majority of commercially available "gluten free" products contain avoids, such as xanthan gum, corn starch, potato flour, carageenan, etc. I've found a few simple crackers that were safe, but the breads all seem to have added junk for texture.

LindaH- it sounds to me like your body is detoxing through the skin. That can be a "good thing" when it means you're healing from old traumas (especially if health issues with internal organs have shifted "out" to skin problems). But it can also indicate that a new toxin is being ingested, causing the need to detox. Since the rash co-incided with a new food, that's the most likely culprit.

Mayflowers...you were right. my ENT said I blew my nose too hard and it affected my inner ear!

On the gluten note,
I had one piece of  delicious (Italian family made) regular cheese pizza ( it was a mini celebration at an old hangout with family and friends and I caved to temptation) and I think I have been paying for it ....about 4 days now....is that possible?
First i knew the cheese was going to attack within hours and it did....
But next the gluten...actually along with the cheese..
I cough with cheese and its over, but that gluten seems to attack , making everything I cough or blow or spit (sorry for the graphics) into a white glue, egg white substance that just keeps coming .....
Anyone else experience this?
Also, recently, when I go outside, I cannot stop coughing... I will be starting environmental allergy testing in 3 weeks.

Cajun,
Before I went Gluten/Dairy free I was very mucus prone, colds would turn it very thick and disgusting.  I was like that for years and it kept getting worse and worse  It was like a miracle after going gluten/dairy free, don't get this now.
Not sure if this is similar to what you experience.

Mayflower,
I used Enterolab also, and was told Gluten/Dairy/Yeast/Egg sensitive.  But their recommendations mostly emphasized removing the gluten and that it might help to remove other foods which I did for a while.  I did the swab gene test with them and found I have two Gluten Sensitive genes. My daughter had one Celiac gene and one Gluten sensitive.  She seemed to be fine, but slowly over the years she tested gluten free diet out and discovered when she was away from home and eating gluten she would put 5 lbs on in a week. She notices when she eats gluten her fingers get stiff and she gets a headache.  So I think Enterolab are good. She was spared years of unknown torture through my experience.

I had yet another cheat - pumpkin spice latte - the other night and no reaction - at all. This is my first cheat without having gluten. I am not going back to gluten ever, even for cheats. I thought the milk would have done me in but so far, so good and this was two days ago. It will be an occasional treat but not a regular I promised myself. And yeah, my fingers have more lines than my face does, another indicator to keep away from gluten.

I get small coughing fits.. It feels like pollen in my throat. I think it's seasonal allergies. I also get itchy all over from seasonal allergies. Right now it's ragweed season.  Dairy doesn't help.

Usually with me, one cheat  one day and I'm ok once in awhile..pop some Deflect and hope for the best. But if I start having an avoid more than one day ...like two or three days in a row, I have a reaction.

Our tests look pretty close according to Enterolab, I'm soy intolerant as well. So what do I do?  A's are supposed to eat soy. I'm intolerant? I've been still eating it, but not sure if I should keep eating it.    This week I had more dairy and I'm kind of more tired. that's really good about your daughter. She's saved herself a lot of grief. Gluten gives such weird symptoms that you think is something else and it turns out to be gluten!  I thought I had an ulcer because wine and coffee were burning so bad I couldn't drink them. Then when I stopped gluten, I can have my coffee and weekly wine again!

Oh, Mayflowers and Lin,
I am just going to have to go completely gluten/dairy free!!! I am pretty much gluten free and am cow dairy free. I just eat sheep cheese on my swami.

Yes, this feels like my seasonal allergies...and yes it is disgusting and frustrating!
Pollen in the throat is a good description, Mayflowers!

Lin, I hope I have good results like you did because our situation seems the same.
Thanks, Possum!

Thanks for the info Lin.  I was dairy free, then I got a UTI and I just temporarily went back on dairy to help put back the probiotics I killed with the Rx. I'm taking Polyflora as well.  I'm eating less and less dairy. I feel stuffy and I feel more tired on it. I'll be off by Monday. At the store opening Saturday, I bought an extra bottle of Polyflora so I can use more.  My two favorite things from NAP is Delfect and Polyflora. I also like the protein powder. Sunday I made a shake for lunch and I wasn't hungry all afternoon until dinner.  

There are some vegan, gluten free cookbooks out there that I'd like to get.

Mayflower,
I have the Delfect and Polyflora also.
If you are reacting to soy perhaps best to take a brea while you are healing. Best to focus on the beans that you are okay with.

I agree on the weird symptoms from gluten.  I've told my son about your stomach pain and thinking it was coffee as he had told me recently the same thing happens to him. He trys to minimize gluten as he is also sensitive to it, both kids are A blood group.  
You must be healing if you've been able to introduce the coffee again.
Keep it up!
Lin

Cajun, when I eat dairy I become congested but then it's over.  When I eat wheat, I feel the effects for several days.  Immediately, I get a *rush* feeling, a jitteriness, plus itchy sneezy sinus reaction.  Later, I feel it in my stomach, indigestion, just don't feel right, weight gain, makes me bloated, gives me the "runs".  My body cannot wait to get rid of it.  But the effects last for a couple of days.  That is not the case with dairy.  I can get away with a very small amount of dairy and not suffer too much.  I get very little dairy on my swami, but I think I can handle a wee bit, although it makse me gain weight very easily, and it comes off soooo slowly!

Cajun,
If you know what pollen you are reacting to you can google and find what foods cross react with that pollen and see if there is something else that triggers how you are feeling.

My doctor thinks there is a chance that I may be able to have any food other than gluten and dairy again once my gut is healed. Seemingly I have leaky gut and my immune system now reacts to pretty much everything.
I should change my signature, since I did that I was tested for more foods and had antibodies to almost everything. These are not true food sensitivities, but a sign that my immune system is overloaded and confused.
I was diagnosed Celiac in December and was told that gluten and casein both need to be avoided for life.
I always say that I'm non-symptomatic because I do not have any immediate , violent reactions.
Like Lin's daughter I gain weight when I eat gluten and dairy containing food (the old wisdom is that Celiacs start as children who will not thrive and all their lives can't gain weight...) I also get the stiff, painful fingers.
A couple weeks ago I decided to have eggs and yeast again. It makes life much easier. It means I can have gluten free bread again. Yay.
Gluten free is fairly easy, gluten and dairy free is doable and I need to get my act together and finally really stick to it

I have been catching up on the BTD boards after being away from it for a while and the gluten intolerance threads always are the ones I read first because I have 2 genes for gluten intolerance (Enterolab).

I am reading an excellent book right now that I thought I would share with you all - Wheat Belly by William Davis, MD.  Sorry, I don't know how to make a link correctly, so bear with me http://www.barnesandnoble.com/.....p;usri=wheat%2bbelly

I am finding it so interesting and you may too.  It is written as a weight loss book but it is full of great information on wheat's effects on the belly, weight, diabetes, body pH, wrinkles, blood lipids, heart disease, brain skin.  Dr. D has already given us much of this info, but if you are like me and like to read more on the subject, I recommend this book.

Thank you, all, for your great input and comments. I met with a local naturopath and she agrees about the sprouted bread and skin connection. She is currently detoxing me. I found a great cream that really works to stop the itching - in case anyone else has this problem: DermaE's Tea Tree and E Antiseptic Cream. Instant relief and lasts for hours! Getting better through better health!!!!!
