Yikes! It looks like maybe there's no such thing! I have a nasty throat infection- weird, in the summer? I can't tolerate HFCS or corn syrup. Shoot, I wish someone knew something.

I have just gotten (getting) over one myself - finally went to the doc, thinking they can't do much for me but I got to the point where I couldn't swollow any pills and was having a hard time drinking - aparently I have strep throat!!! My kids have had it, not right now, but I have never had it and I have probably had it for a week before I finally went to the doc. Now I know what they put up with!!!

Thanks Molly. I was going to order the chocolate items as I really need to put on some weight and they are out of them. I will order the tart sampler for now.

St. Claire candies are good...but one warning on the cough drops--some have echinecea and a few other herbs in them. So, if you don't want to be taking those don't get them. The product I'm talking about is here: http://www.econaturalsolutions.com/site/70...oduct/TIN-OW-TH I like the candies...but they seem to make my throat sore if I eat too many of them. Acidic maybe? They are definitely worth buying, but if you are like me, too many might make a sore throat worse.

Lisa and Kate-- My recommendation is Thayer's Slippery Elm drops. This is what I use for a sore throat. Ingredients are slippery elm bark, dextrose, magnesium stearate, natural cherry flavor (you can get plain too), sucrose, vegetable stearine. Preservative, sodium, menthol, gluten, dairy free. The sweetner is corn derived. It doesn't say anything about soy, so you could ck on that. But I don't see any obvious soy on the label. See their products here: http://www.thayers.com/ They should be in any major health/natural food store.

Thank you, Molly and Kate and Jen and all!

Molly, yes, I have the peppermints (very tiny); I didn't know of their other things so I'm going to try some- thank you! Kate, I'm starting to wonder if this is strep myself although I've never had it, only my son. I now have lost my voice as well. Hoping you're feeling better. And,Jen, thank you for the Thayer's info, will check that, too!

Boy--that was the coolest growing up!

Yeah, I loved it when I was a kid, & my kids loved it when I did it with them!

It also occurs to me, OceanGirl, that you could make yourself a batch of simple syrup as a truly simple cough/throat syrup to take by the spoonful. Simple syrup is nothing more than equal parts sugar & boiling water, stirred until the sugar dissolves. We keep it on hand in a jar in the fridge, to sweeten iced tea & homemade lemonade-- & it is also the preferred food of hummingbirds, in case you have a feeder!

This is a good idea--I have always used honey and lemon juice stired together and warmed.

Oh, yes, how could I forget that! My husband used to make something for me when I had a bad cold that he called "Rheumatiz Medicine" (Beverly Hillbillies reference!??) that consisted of warmed honey, lemon juice & whiskey! Boy it made colds a lot more tolerable! I guess you'd have to be careful about the whiskey...

We call these hot toddy's in our family, and we also add hot tea to it. It cures a cold in no time flat! If you drink it when you first feel it coming on, it doesn't seem to progress. :)

Rheumatiz Medicine :lol::lol: I remember that! When I was young, we had a gas stove with a pilot light. My mom used to keep a dish of the stuff on the stove over the pilot light whenever someone in the house was sick. It would stay nicely warm there all day.

I always do honey and lemon when I have a sore throat and, until now, it has always worked.

Thanks for the info on St. Claire's - think I will have to put in an order!!! Looks like I will have to pass on the slippery elm - too much corn. But the St. Claire's looks like I can have CANDY????

Throat is much better now - second day of drugs.

Leah,

Cool crystals; I remember that-maybe I'll make myself some. Thanks everyone regarding honey and lemon-the preferred treatment of my French and Greek family. Unfortunately, I can't tolerate honey anymore (a lot of fructose in honey, I think) and right now citrus doesn't feel so good either! Gggrrrr... I'll make some simple syrup. Thank you all for your posts. Kate-glad you are feeling better!

      This forum post came up when I Google searched Kirkland Dish Soap. I called them today and they said there is no gluten in the dish soap. Janis 
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      In light of the studies that found some probiotics that are labeled gluten-free yet tested over 20ppm I wouldn't touch them. Now those would be the powder or pill forms. Yogurt is not affected by that. Since you don't have a problem with dairy then I would say eat some yogurt every day. I like Chobani Greek because it has more kinds of cultures. Remember now that powder or pill forms of probiotics do not come under the gluten-free labeling law. The same for OTC & prescription meds. You need to check every single one of those. There are a few online sites where you can check things like that or ask here but as far as prescription meds -- call the manufacturer EVERY TIME. I also wanted to tell you in case you didn't already know that since celiac is genetic and can present at ANY age then all your first degree relatives need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms and immediately if symptoms present between the 2 year periods. As far as the digestive enzymes go, I tried Digest Gold for a short time & it really didn't seem to do anything for me however I will say I had a lot of issues going on at the time so I might not know if they helped or not. I decided to quit them in order to take that out of the equation so I could try to pin down what was causing me distress. The fewer things in the mix you know. I have heard people report the same as your consultant said. Some say they helped & some say they didn't. Remember Jammy, you're just in the beginning stages. I KNOW you want to heal & heal FAST. Been there, done that! It's like this: you didn't get sick overnight & you're not going to heal overnight. Patience is the watchword here. It's hard I know! You just want to get on with your life. We can all relate.  Again, I'm going to say to eat foods easy on your gut. WELL cooked foods. No raw carrots, coconut, nuts & stuff like that. Easier on your gut would be nut butters.... peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter etc.... It's sort of like being a baby ---  soft, easy to digest foods. Bone broth is a great healer for you gut & extremely nutritious as well as being easy on the digestion. Here's just one recipe: http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth/
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Thanks for the tip! Will try that out in the next few days. By the way, has anyone had any joy with probiotics or digestive enzymes in terms of symptom relief/speeding up the healing process? I asked my consultant about this when I saw him last week and he said that some people find them beneficial while others don't, but obviously I'm keen to try anything that may help, with uncomfortable fullness/bloating/gas still being my main issue  - is it worth giving them a go?
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      I realize that this is an old thread but I would just like to say something about label reading. Just because a product says gluten free on the label doesn't mean that you don't have to read any further and can have complete trust in the product.  There are a lot of products that state that they are gluten free on the package and then you find out that they are processed in plants that also produce wheat products. If you are super sensitive, you need to know that information. I am afraid that there is no escaping reading labels in supermarkets unless you know that the company makes it's products in a truly gluten free environment (even then you should read labels because ingredients can and do change, even in products made in gluten free facilities), It's a pain to stand there and read labels but if you are super sensitive, you might just have to do that. For example, I am gluten and lactose intolerant but also sensitive to nuts and sesame. While it may be fine for other gluten intolerant people to eat something that's labeled gluten free which is produced in a gluten free facility that also processes nuts, for me it is not.. 
    • Golden Bell Pepper Soup (Gluten-Free)
      Dipping your spoon into this bell pepper–sweet potato combo is like dipping into a bowl of sunshine. It's stunning—and the perfect antidote to a gloomy winter's day. This soup also freezes well, so if you're not serving a crowd, store the leftovers for a later date (or make a double batch). I like to enjoy this soup accompanied by my Massaged Kale Salad with Spicy Hazelnuts View the full article

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
