    Keep track of what foods make you feel worse and avoid them! I have foods I absolutely avoid and it lessens my symptoms a bit.

    I have non-celiac gluten intolerance. It may be worth a shot to try an elimination diet. Lots of us have gluten and dairy issues. I will die with a wedge of cheese in my hand though. Lol.

      Same! There is no replacement for cheese. When I suffer for it, I both chastise myself and reminded myself cheese is worth it. 🤣

    Oh!! Bone broth and congee are amazing for a couple of days to help calm everything down.

    Many people have made wonderful suggestions. Looking at foods on the low FODMAP diet and trying to avoid foods in high histamine.
