Good News/ Bad News

Posted by 1desperateladysaved, 14 November 2013 - - - - - - · 1,020 views

I have just passed through several days of cramping, swelling, and gassiness. All of this as a result of nothing specific that I know of. Perhaps after 19 months gluten free it is just further recovery. Happily, I woke up today without the cramping and felt excellent since.

. Previous blood counts, over the passed 5 years, showed immature blood cells...


My Friend: Pain!

Posted by 1desperateladysaved, 17 October 2013 - - - - - - · 758 views
Before I diagnosis, I did not feel celiac pain. I would notice my tummy bloating, my legs swelling, and have a pregnant looking belly. I had extreme fatigue and foggy mind, but didn't realize those until it went away one day. I trudged on with these mysterious symptoms that were "All in my head." Wondering in my dreamy state if something possibly was wron...


The Advantages Of Having Celiac: For Me And For My Family

Posted by 1desperateladysaved, 06 September 2013 - - - - - - · 1,056 views

I owe a lot to celiac,

If it weren't for celiac I would eat like an American: chips, soda pop, and candy until gone, but undiagnosed celiac motivated me to cut out sweets. I learned to eat vegetables, I grew more and more motivated to learn about and use foods to nourish.

When I got married I knew how to cook hotdogs, chocolate cake, chocolate chip...


Up The Mountain, And Out Of The Fog

success, health rewards
I began my gluten free trek in about May of 2012. I did classic gluten free for a few months and then went grain free. Last November at about 6 months gluten free I had my first nutrient absorption test. In spite of my natural, whole food, organic diet, and many supplements my nutrient levels were low. Especially the Vitamin B levels were unacceptable. I...


My Last Dentist Trip, Until The Next One.

strange reactions
I shouldn't be too surprised. This week (May 12) got off to an awful start. I should have maybe cancelled the dentist for this week. Still, I went off a little optimistic that I would not get lectures this time. I have been gluten free for over a year and hadn't had any cavities for several years.

The hygentist listened half sympathetically as I mention...

Onedesperatelady may need a new name! Getting giddy usually happens to me before the next dive comes. Dive after dive has come to me since I have been really battling celiac disease (mostly Undiagnosed) for 6 years! By battling, I mean spending much efforts to help my body work right, my actual plight with celiac. disease has been at least 30 years....


The Grief Of Getting Better?!

Posted by 1desperateladysaved, 02 May 2013 - - - - - - · 933 views

For this post, a "smiley" with tears gushing out both sides of the face is what I needed. One would think that getting better would be nothing but happy, but I found that grief engulfed me.

For years I had lived in the fog and I knew nothing else. Then one glorious day, the fog cleared. Then the  realization struck. I had lived in the fog for 25 years!...


Backing Off. I Am To Have No More Foods That I Have Antibodies For!

super sensitive struggle
Here I go again into territory I have not yet conquered. The challenge: to eat only foods, I had no measured intolerances to, for 6 weeks. These 10 good foods included 5 protein foods, 2 vegetables, and 3 fruits. The test had been for about 85 foods and of them, I had 10 left. I also may eat any food not tested.  

I heard the average American only eats 1...


The Good, The Bad And The Ugly. Nutrient Test Interpretation

functional medicine and 1 more...
I learned a few things from a Functional Medicine nurse I visited with the other day.

The adrenal glands manufacture a substance called cortisol which helps the body deal with stress. On the day of my nutrient absorption test, I tested as not having the nutrients to build cortisol. My system was depressed having had to fight celiac disease for 30 years....
