Inside Autism Supplement To Gluten-Free Living Magazine=Awesome!

2 posts in this topic

so I bought the latest issue of Gluten-Free Living last weekend, and it had an Inside Autism supplement coupled with it.  I just finished reading Inside Autism, and it was great!!!  Go out and buy it if you're able!  I learned that Dr. Fasano is conducting an extensive study relating to autism and dietary intervention.  Can't wait for those results!  Also in another article there was a quote that stated, "Approximately 90 percent of the brain chemical serotonin is found in the gut."  Celiac gut damage and depression/anxiety link strengthened even more.  There was also a wonderful article regarding a magician teaching children and adults magic tricks.  Read the excerpt below:


Spencer tells the story of teaching a simple magic trick to a 9-year-old-boy in a pediatric department of a hospital.  The child had never spoken a sentence until he asked Spencer a question about a magic trick. "He leaned way into me and looked me right in the eyes and said, 'Where do I put my hands?' I showed him how to hold the rope.  He asked, 'What do I do next?' In 20 minutes, he learned three magic tricks," said Spencer, who had no idea the boy was not an easy communicator.  But the boy's father watched as his child talked to the magician.  "That's the first time in nine years I've ever heard my son speak," the man said to Spencer. "It was really incredible." -Inside Autism Spring 2013


the arts are a powerful asset  :)

I promise I'm not a spokesperson for the magazine :P, but if you're interested in getting a subscription to Gluten-Free Living, is offering a year subscription (6 issues) for $17 right now.  I bought it because I paid $10 for the last issue alone, but for the autism supplement, it was well worth the money!

    • Thanks a lot for your advice and the link. I will surely check upon GCED. But, doesn't a negative HTTG (can't do IgA ttg as IgA deficiency) result mean that I am not exposed to gluten ? 
    • Thank you for going through my long post and responding. I have been both dairy and gluten-free free for 10 months now. Yes, even I was worried about other food allergies. I mentioned it to my GI doc and asked if I need food allergy test to eliminate other allergens. He said, food allergy tests give a lot of false positives and are not accurate. He said: not everything is because of food allergy and it's refractory celiac which is causing issues as the jejunum biopsy, done recently, is showing villous flattening.

      My doubt: 1. If I have so much damage in my small intestine (villous flattening) then how was I keeping fine for 6-7 months ( eating eggs, soy, rice and meat) - was constantly losing weight though - but was able to work out regularly - not much fatigue. 2. If it is other food allergens ( out of mentioned allergens, I take eggs, soy chunks, almonds only) why does it happen only few times and not always - I keep well for 7-8 days and then fall sick again - this without any change in diet.  
    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!
