Wheat Belly Crash?
« on: April 28, 2013, 12:53:16 AM »
 Last July and Aug 2012 I came to the realization that I had been suffering over a year with female issues that my GP was just not having any luck helping me with.  Every test she tried came back negative.  I was in tears a lot. With no help to be had I had a farfetched idea that maybe weight was my problem. I started thinking about when my brother was allergic to peanut butter his reaction to it was gaining weight. In 2010 I was given an allergy test for my asthma. I got this list of all things I was allergic to and wheat was on this list. At the time my Dr told me not to worry about the less than whole numbers and wheat was like .05. Oct 2012 I started having what I thought to be major issues with my digestive system with bleeding. I had digestive issues all my life but never bleeding. I got on Google and started searching about digestive issues and I kept running into wheat causing digestive issues. I decided to do a test for the month of Sep of going wheat free. By week 2 I already decided wheat was out of my life for good. My head cleared of a fog feeling that I never realized I had. My water retention problem was just gone. I didnít feel bloated anymore. I had energy like never before. I had big problems at the store reading labels, my eyes are bad and the words so small. I got on Google again looking for what I could eat and ran into Wheat Belly, I switched over to wheat belly. Mostly because I didnít need to read all the labels in the store!  My female issues went away for about a month or two; my digestive issues didnít go away but much improved.
About a month ago I crashed or something, my head is foggy, I am drained of energy, and I could sleep all day. I do sleep whenever I get the chance.  I have noticed a little water retention, my female issues are back but not as bad, my digestive issues are back. I donít understand where I messed up. I havenít had any grains that I know of since last September. I have not changed anything that I can put my finger on.
Has anyone else had a crash like this or any ideas what could be going on?

Can you think of any dietary changes you made a month ago?    A new food or a new drink?  Or do you have a new lotion or laundry detergent?

The only thing new I can think of is I had some coconut water, that I have never in my life had. But I have had coconut chips, coconut flakes and coconut flour. Oh and I changed cooking to coconut oil from the start of wheat belly, and I use fractionated coconut oil in my coffee and been using fractionated before I knew wheat belly for skin and with my essential oils.

I have been taking Vitamin D for years 10000 IU
fish oil for years  1000 mg
Last Jan I started taking Mega-Zyme and magnesium as Dr Davis recommends

I had a hard time finding the kelp, I bet that was about a month ago that I found kelp and ran out of Magnesium and the store didn't have any. so I started kelp and stopped magnesium.

You know maybe I have to switch that back for now. Thanks for making me think that through.

Eve, I get horrible leg cramps if I don't keep the optimum level of magnesium, and sodium (sea salt) up.  As far as a crash, the only time I ever did that years ago was due to hypoglycemia.  When I cut the carbs I didn't have any further problems with highs/lows.  Believe I'd see a doc and get some blood tests going.
