A Very Good Dvd On celiac disease/gluten
0

6 posts in this topic

I just ordered this DVD of a recent (last summer) seminar on Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. It answered a lot of questions I had, plus it pointed out some rather frightening statistics I had not read before. The lecture puts together a lot of studies and really tells us where we stand with this. If you are wondering if you are "merely" gluten sensitive (perhaps lacking the celiac gene) whether or not it is harmful to eat some gluten, or whether you MUST know if you actually have/had celiac disease, if damage can be done to non-celiacs, etc, then this lecture will answer a lot of your concerns. The doctor also discusses testing and problems with the medical profession regarding celiac disease etc. There is also a segment from a women who is concerned with the nutrtitional aspects of dealing with celiac disease. I'm passing this DVD around to all my family members and I felt it was worth the $$$. After I ordered it, it arrived within about 2 days!

I sure wish I could locate a doctor around here to has this particular doctor's interest and knowledge on the subject! I really do recommend this to everyone.

I received my DVD a few days ago and just got to watch it today.

IT IS AMAZING! OMG! THE WAY THAT DOCTOR DESCRIBES THINGS MAKES IT SOOOO MUCH CLEARER AND EASIER TO UNDERSTAND!!!!!

I HIGHLY recommend getting this DVD, not only for further understanding ourselves, but to better explain it to our families, etc.

I give it a 9 out of 10!

Thanks for the link Carole!

The woman that wrote the cookbook and "co-stared" in the DVD, Susan Vess runs the Celiac support group that I go to, its at the whole foods in wheaton Illinois. She is very nice, and extremely knowledgeable.

Thanks for providing the link to this website, I also just ordered the DVD! I really need it to clue people in my family in, they think I am overreacting. Plus, my 15-year old daughter keeps saying when I tell her I believe she needs to be gluten-free, "Mom, I believe you that I might be gluten intolerant, so what, I don't care, I refuse to give up bread, and you can't make me!" If she sees the DVD, maybe she will change her mind (I can hope, can't I?).

Thanks for posting about this! I am defenitely going to order it. A very good price for it too. Only $20.00.

I bought the cook book on that same page and it is very good. Has some good info on labeling and stuff.

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
