  2. I'm too busy snickering... okay, Bwhahaha, laughing my guts out. I need this.. Karen..... Feels good to laugh. Sorry, Karen I didn't recognize you all dressed up. I have to say, I live a boring life when I read back through here... but someone has to be the contrast, right?
  3. After feeling so bad for so many years (only about 7 which is nothing compared to some but...), I now feel so good. Cough gone, aches receding, energy back, gut beginning to heal. I guess feeling better (eventually) is a given. I am more responsible about what goes in my body, more aware of the amount of processed foods out there and what that means. I think one of the biggest positives is finding an empathy for people who do not feel well, who are undiagnosed but suffering, and what it means to 'have a reaction to' something. I understand now, when someone says they can't have something that this could cause unbearable symptoms. I really didn't know how much a person could suffer from food issues until I became one.
  4. If we could hear everything our bodies are saying to us... we would eat very differently.
  5. I've been constipated all my life too and since going gluten free I am 'moving' everyday, sometimes 2 times a day. Health folk often say we are supposed to have movements after every meal... if they are healthy BM. I feel so much better now that I am gluten free and this is part of the total healing - having healthy elimination. If a person suffers with D, this is a whole different story.

  7. Hi you!!

    How you doing...feeling better?


  8. "The drug triggers the death of the cells that cause the damaging immune response,'' he said. ''By doing that you switch the immune reaction from a damaging one to a tolerant one.''" I also wonder what else this affects if cells which are a normal part of our immune response are killed. What else are these cells responsible for (long term)? Its like taking out the squeaky hinge.. and then finding out the door falls off.
  9. Vitamins?

    I was going to ask about the source of the vit E in the multi but I guess if they say gluten free... then that shouldn't be an issue.
  10. Just a note.. something I learned here. If Celiac is present then the villi may have been affected and the tips of the villi are where lactase is produced for the digestion of dairy (lactose). So lactose intolerance could be part of the issue.
  11. That sounds like a dream. I should check bylaws here but I'm pretty sure I can't have chickens in small town Sask.. I'm guessing lots of people would and it would be a circus trying to keep things clean and neat. My family has farmland outside of town but with few trees and not much rain usually (and no well), it would be hard to have an acreage there. You have treeeeees... you lucky girl... I love trees. If you're coming for a visit, Kareng, I'm guessing you would like trees over tumbleweeds.
  12. Mine is doing the same thing. Also I can't search just the I think something must be down 'for maintenance' or something... guessing...
  13. Darn...I was hoping it would be some place close to Maui. I'm probably next door. Comon Kareng! You've always wanted to come visit the home of the Mounties, moose and..the mighty beaver. If I lived on an acreage I would have chickens, a cow, some sheep... and dogs and cats. Also chinchillas but not for making coats or anything ...ssshhhhhh don't want to talk too loud or Chilli will hear.. And as long as I'm fantasizing.. I would like a garden that would supply all my veggie needs..and a hothouse for winter fresh veggies powered off of a geothermic, solar, wind powered system that would have left over power that I could sell... and a fresh water spring... and a million dollars....
