I went paleo- gluten free for a little over 3 weeks then decided I missed my Ezekiel bread so for the past 3 days I began eating it again. I wasn't sure if it was in my head or not but I felt a slight stomach ache I usually only have a bowel... (more)

I think I was verging on celiac before going Paleo. It didn't give me the runs like it does most celiac people but it upset my stomach and made me pretty severely constipated. Every so often I eat a couple small crackers or a bite of cookie just... (more)

If you're as intolerant as you suspect you are, then you should completely cut down gluten. According to Robb Wolf on his book, even a little of gluten is staying in the gut for 2 weeks, and it can instigate an autoimmune response for up to 6... (more)

My take is that just because you can tolerate something even over a long period of time doesn't mean that it is necessarily good for you. Obviously billions of people survive eating grains, but given their lack of nutrients, and numerous... (more)

Yeah, so you have no symptoms because you shut off your immune system. So the damage still gets done, but your immune system just doesn't respond. If you get exposed to a virus or bacteria after one of these shots, the immune system won't... (more)

I wouldn't say that you're "cured" but that you've healed and now can handle it occasionally. Remember, gluten (among other things) irritates your gut lining and lets proteins directly into your blood because of the leaky gut (that's the... (more)

I tend to think that gluten sensitivity is related to the die off of certain bacteria that can break down the gluten proteins, probably from overuse of antibiotics and from being too hygenic. See Lucas Tarfur's blog for more details on... (more)

As far as I know, seaweed doesn't have gluten. So most likely cross contamination, or seasoning. Are you using any seasoning? Is the seaweed seasoned? What brand is it?
