      For Flax seed - I use Hodgson Mill, milled flax seed (It says gluten free on the box), I add to smoothies, bread mixes, even baked goods, u could even add it to cereal.

      For Aloe Juice- I buy Aloe Life, the orange papaya concentrate (I emailed the company and they assured me they are gluten free) , order it from Lame Advertisement it really is the best aloe juice I've tried.

      Hope this helps

      Eye Swelling/ Raccoon Eyes
      Hey guys! I was just wondering if anyone has problems with facial swelling, particularly swelling around the eyes and nose? I've had that problem for almost a year now. And I also have sensitivity to light and dark dark circles around my eyes. I've been to several ENTs (ear, nose, throat doctors) all of which ruled out sinus problems. I have environmental allergies, and I know those can cause my symptoms, but even my allergy meds don't really seem to help. I wouldn't be too concerned but like I said I have had this problem for about a year. Any help would be appreciated!

      Don't give up, although I can relate. I've been gluten-free and CF for about 5 months, I'm still having lots of problems. I never thought my irratability was ever gonna go away. It took about 4 months for my irratability to finally subside! So don't give up, and hope you feel better soon!

      I tried apple cider vinegar for a few months but only got temporary relief. Try using Honey (1-2 tsp) everytime you get that feeling (GERD sufferers know what i mean). Sliced Red dilicious apples also work. Those are the best natural ways to help with GERD.
      I'm currently taking aciphex for GERD which works great! The only problem is that my insurance only covers half the cost so I pay $70 for a month supply. It's completely worth it especially since prilosec, protonix, nexium and prevacid didn't work for me!
      I hope you get better soon.

      I don't have my results with me, but I've had three seperate thyroid test, TSH, T4, and T3 and the results were all within normal limits! I'm pretty sure my B12 levels are within normal limits too! I threw out all my shampoo and makeup and bought all new gluten free stuff!

      Still Miserable!
      Hey ya'll! Well I'm going to vent! I was diagnosed 2 months ago and have been gluten free ever since, but I'm not feeling any better! I also have allergies to milk, cheese, eggs (yolk and white), yeast, tomatoes, beans. Iam also allergic to dust mites. I have GERD. I take aciphex for that, and singulaur for my allergies! I am always severly deficient in vit D when my blood work comes back( I would go tanning but I can bearly move) so I take supplements for that! I just ordered some aloe vera juice to help with my gastritis (i've read that it helps with bloating and healing of the stomach).
      I really dont know what to do anymore, I've been to so many doctors over the past 2 years, Gastroenterologists (sp?), allergists, even alternative medicine doctor. None of which have really helped! I have been tested for thyroid (neg), and my CBCs are always normal! I have had so many procedures and most come back negative.
      My symptoms are as follows:
      extreme fatigue
      brain fog
      trouble concentrating
      swelling numbness around the eyes
      Painfull joints
      double vision
      Numbness all over my body
      tingeling in the feet
      Bloating (five months pregnant type)
      Trouble breathing

      All of those symptoms are very debilitating and have forced me to quit my job and pretty much quit my life!
      Anyone suggestions? I'm about ready to give up! And the first thing I would do is go get a HUGE cheeseburger and milkshake from steak n shake! LOL
      Well I hope you all have a better day than me!!!

    11. helenabbadi added a post in a topic Recovering Professionally?   

      Have you had time to recover from your illness completely? Maybe the new job isn't the problem, could it be trying to deal with the celiac disease? I haven't worked since feb, I had to quit my new job as a nurse because that is when I started to get too sick. I was sick the whole time I was in school and the short amount of time I worked. I hated school and the job, and I was starting to think I had made the wrong career choice ! Now I see the problem wasn't my career but my illnesses that were preventing me from enjoying my job! Iam still ill, but I'm sure that when I am fully recovered and go back to work, I will love my job! I Hope you get things worked out soon!
