Glad to hear that worked out for you. The nutritionist at my doc's office suggested I look into trying the GAPS diet given some of the lingering symptoms that I have. Unfortunately it's rather... involved and not practical right now for me but hopefully in a couple months. I guess it's a little controversial still as it's budding research but I'll never forget her line when she was describing it to me. "Just you watch, intestinal flora will be the new Kale."
And now, that's apparently not true... What else is going to turn out to be not true? That gluten intolerance is as real as fibromyalgia?
Related: I was diagnosed with a raft of allergies a couple of weeks ago (Carry an EpiPen now at all times because the doctor is a little spooked that I might be a walking case of anaphylaxis waiting to happen), and gluten popped up on the report. Very minor food allergy, but the allergist suggested that I go gluten free for a week to see if there was anything to it. No real change like the quackery claims about gluten's evils, but my persistent (Literally since I was a kid) stomach pains vanished instantly, which makes since a common allergic reaction to gluten is stomach pain.
LOL might not be far off. We're discovering that gut flora are involved in a lot, even in making serotonin (which SSRI antidepressants try to increase). A colitis patient was getting a fecal transplant for gut flora. That patient ended up being obese, just like the original donor. Although the research regarding probiotics and increasing outcomes are equivocal at best, docs are still prescribing them for any patient that needs antibiotics.
Interesting. Research into obesity is targeting the intestinal flora as a cause for obesity at the moment. This looks like a proof. Although not intended as experiment.
