Help - I Need Help With The Ingredient List!
0

10 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell if these ingredients are gluten free? I am having major trouble with this!

Here is the list

Lycium Chinese, Vitis coignetiae, Myrica rubra, Maninaria japonica, Morus australis, Rubus buergeri, Elaeagnus montana, Hizikia fusiforme, Artemisia montana, Plantago asiatica, Mountain Spring Water. The product is 100% natural and totally vegetarian.

I know just because it says natural and vegetarian does not make it gluten free.

Thanks in advance

It is actually a new probiotic that I had been researching, and I finally ordered it today. I couldn't believe this is on the packaging """"Recommended for infants, children, pregnant or nursing mothers, the elderly and those with compromised immune system"""" The product is called - Dr. Ohira's, Essential Formulas Inc., Dr. Ohhira's 12 Plus Probiotic Formula

It is supposed to be so good for you that mostly nutritionists and Drs carry it, and take it. It is also one that the alternative dr's suggest.

I am anxious to try it, it should be here by Sat or Mon. I can post after I take it for a bit if you like. I know that you take a lot of it in the first 5 days -

Most of the reviews I have read are all fantastic. Especially for IBS, and helps with acne too.

Interesting....I googled the acne-helping aspect of it and people seem to really like the stuff. I'm kind of curious to try it now. Keep us posted on how it goes.

Here's the update -

I took these pills for almost a week. I did get an email from the company, and I talked to them on the phone...they did tell me that they were gluten free. The person told me that their 6 yr old neice takes 7 of these pills a day.

I started with the loading dose that was recommended. At first they did give me energy, and I slept better at night(that's not why I was taking them, but...they did). But I think I started to have a healing crisis, but not for sure as I started to do a lot of itching, and had some immediate nueropathy problems so I think they have something in them that my system doesn't agree with. The flyer that came inside the box says there is 82 other ingredients but they were not willing to tell me what they were..so I thought it best to stop taking something that I don't know all the ingredients too.

I had to go back to the probiotics that I was taking in the beginning.

P.S. My skin looked awesome all week!

    • How about reaching out to your local celiac disease support group? http://www.houstonceliacs.org
    • Yes, I am in Houston, TX. Can anyone recommend a good GI in Houston, lots of experience with celiac?  
    • I am sorry to hear about your mother.   It is not so hard to get a medical doctor to order a celiac panel -- especially if your father was diagnosed with celiac disease.  Our family GP did not blink an eye when I first asked my daughter to be tested.    If you think your doctor will disregard your legitimate request, you can either fire him or put the request in writing and send it certified (attorneys love documentation!)  I agree that our doctors should support us.  I have a great GI, but my GP  is pretty clueless when it comes to celiac disease, but she admits it.    She does always order all the lab tests I request.  Perhaps it is because I come in with supporting medical documentation and evidence.  If she was not supportive to my satisfaction, I would find a new doctor.   Again, you can go gluten free in your own.   Chance are you have celiac disease.    But it is hard.  Really hard if you do not have the support of your family.  That is my concern.   Are you in the US?  
    • I've just read SO MUCH about the long, arduous process of getting a positive diagnosis through traditional medicine - I'm not sure I want to put myself through all that. Since my father WAS positively diagnosed - I carry the celiac gene and another gene that predisposes me to gluten sensitivity - and my fecal tests for gliadin were SO elevated - there are enough reasons for me to go to a gluten free diet. The true medical diagnosis would just make it easier for my family/friends to believe the necessity of it. My children are adults and not particularly health care nuts. I doubt they would take their own risk seriously without a medical diagnosis. I'm afraid my husband, while he is trying to be supportive at this point, will grow weary of all the things I no longer serve at meals and all the places we will no longer go to because there are not gluten free alternatives on the menu. A medical diagnosis would make it easier for him, long term, I think.  I don't have much faith in general in our western health care system. My mother died 6 months ago at age 82 after 4-5 years of many different health issues. She had given up the keys to her car in her late 70's after getting lost several times. I became her designated driver to all doctor appointments, procedures, hospital stays, etc. The incompetence and disregard I saw blew me away. I'm surprised any elderly people survive our health care system once they get on that revolving door. The reason I started seeing a naturopath is that I am looking for an alternative to medical doctors for most of my health issues as I age. I know there are some things I still have to see them for - and of course, they are essential in trauma and emergency situations. But I am on a quest to follow a more holistic approach to my health care. If this is the path I am choosing, then I have to follow my gut (no pun intended) in situations like this. I think the only reason I would go through the medical testing would be for other people - not me. It seems to me, that with so many people being gluten intolerant these days, a decent M.D. would listen to a patient that was adamant about their intent to live gluten free - positive celiac diagnosis or not (and especially with the gene and stool test results). I mean, they don't tell vegetarians they have to eat meat ... and vegetarianism is a personal choice. Sorry if I seem to be rambling ... this is all so new, and I'm trying to find my way.    
    • This subject is often raised on this site, especially by women.  I am prompted to raise it again today, having spoken to my doctor who has said that she has noticed that celiacs often have thin hair, especially in later years.   Rather than just accept what she thinks is just the inevitable I would really like to hear from anyone who really has seen great improvement in their own hair and what they did. There are lots of tips on line but I am particularly interested in hearing from someone who has actually been there, done that, and now has better hair!
