I've been feeling mostly fine (I did feel sick after getting gluten last week), but tonight I started feeling sick and I didn't know what I might have eaten.
Then I remembered, I took some "Goldenseal" tablets that my naturopath prescribed because S is getting a cold and I wanted to rev up my immune system.
Well, I just looked up the ingredients on the web and found that Echinacea (one of the ingredients) is contraindicated for people with auto-immune disorders and negative reactions can include nausea. Now, I know that I test negative for Celiac, but I also know that those tests can sometimes be less than accurate. And I know what I feel when I get gluten. So I'm running on the assumption that I have Celiac...which is an auto-immune disorder.
So I've made myself sick. Again. I need to remember what I told one of our dialysis patients the other day - just because something says that it is "herbal" does not mean that it's safe.
P.S. I'll try to be around more.
