Pimples the Vagus nerve

    I eat wheat, usually about 3 times a year. The last time was for Mother's Day, when I ate quite a bit of homemade angel food cake. I took some DGL before I ate it, and was pleased that I didn't get an upset tummy after the stomach emptied into the small intestine. That stuff works!



    A few days later, as expected, I got some pimples. Then more. I'm still seeing a few popping up, both fore and aft. Long ago I bought the spiel about dirty skin causing pimples. What a guilt trip! Now I see that it's more of a detox reaction, or inflammation. But what is the reason for the location of the pimples? They are near both ends of the alimentary canal.



    I think the vagus nerve only extends from just below the nose to the upper parts of the colon. So would it have no role in pimples near the nose or eyebrow? Or on the bum?



    Anyway, perhaps next time I won't eat so much of it. So my pimple population is a bit more reduced. ;-)

    You eat wheat once and you have forever altered yourself. It destroys the delicate balance of our leaky gut and turns it into a massive damn failure........We are designed to have a slow leak to get the nutrients we need in fast to help us.......but when you break the damn mechanism.......all hell breaks loose.

    oh.





    And I thought I was being so good..

    So in one day you have destroyed my raw cream from Jersey & Guernsey cows (but without testing for A2 protein) habit, and my rare indulgence in wheat.

    This hurts more than my brain, Dr. K.

    Is it just me, or does this sounds like the whine of an addict?

    when i think of people eating wheat I tell them to listen to one song......So Happy by theory of a Dead Man.......then go find the lyrics and think of wheat........



    Every time I think of bad stuff in my environment I think of this song.

    or is any amount of wheat exposure too much?

    I wouldlove to know more about this too. My second child was dx'ed hashimotos at age 3.5 and celiac at age 5, and I was 25 weeks pregnant with my fourth at the time. I have kept her gluten free her entire life, hoping to avoid hashimoto's and celiac. She would have gotten exposure in-utero until 25 weeks, and then minimal exposures while nursing (I ate gluten about once/month until she was 9 months old, and then I went completely gluten free. However, I do let her eat things that are contaminated, like you described. Of course I don't allow my celiac son to have them. Meanwhile, she developped hashimotos at exactly the same age as my second, despite eating gluten free (contaminated). Was/is the contamination level too much, or is there some other trigger outside of gluten that started the autoimmune condition so early?

    Didn't know that wheat could cause pimple breakouts. Call me anything but I really, only heard about it today.
