It's so nice to read this. Last night we decided to go to the mall and it was supper, we live 40 mins outside of Calgary so it is a long way home to wait. I got really hungry and ate breaded fish and chips. Today I feel soooo tired and my stomach hurts a lot. So after reading this I am going to take some digestive enzymes right away.

Question though: What brands or types are the best for cleaning out wheat quickly?

I find that I'm more sensitive if other allergies are bad. I've not eaten as much as a whole waffle, but have had bits of wheat, unbeknownst to me. I always keep digestive enzymes with me!
I am intolerant, and not celiac, but I've found that my symptoms are very diffuse and that discovery only came after many months of being GF. I also find that I don't much like the taste of wheat anymore.
But, I do truly miss the crunch of wonderful, freshly baked baguette!

Something similar happened to me. I have been eating questionable things without symptom. Now last week I ate a couple of questionable things. Lo and behold, for 5 days I've been nauseated, achey, headaches, and bloat. Back to basics for this Celiac.

The digestive enzyme breaks down the carb and helps your body process it better. That is what may have happened to you.


If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I too am intolerant of Gluten, but after being GF for a while I realized it had been effecting other things as well. Maybe since you haven't had any gluten in a while your system has healed and is not as sensitive as it once was. I wouldn't do it again, otherwise you are very likely to be sensitive again.

Last night, I reached into the freezer to pull out a waffle. I assumed it was GF. I assumed everything in the freezer was GF. Long story short, it wasn't, but I didn't realize it till after I ate it. Normally, if I eat gluten, I get a pain in my lower left abdomen. It's like there's a ball inside there making me bloat. When I realized the waffle was wheat, I panicked and swallowed four digestive enzyme pills I picked up at an Indian (Asian) market and a probiotic (which I have been taking regularly). Anyway, today I feel wonderful! I have a tiny amount of pain, but I have a ton of energy. It's not an experiment I plan on repeating and obviously, I have an intolerance rather than Celiac, but it is interesting.
