I was looking on the internet for a new non-toxic gluten free house cleaners when I found this company called Shaklee.

I e-mailed the rep asking if their cleaners were gluten-free, and this is the list that she sent to me:

The Shaklee Get Clean Cleaning products are all Gluten free EXCEPT the hand wash soap it contains oatmeal.

Once again, Thank you and please feel free to ask any questions that you might have in the future.

I grew up with my mom selling this so I'm very familiar with it plus I recently started doing the business as well. They do their best to be accurate and I'm not sure if you were sent the gluten statement, but they do say that they don't test for gluten so cannot guarantee gluten free, but will give you a list based on ingredients. Having said that I have had issues with some of the proteins that are supposed to be o.k., but I'm very sensitive. I know others that take it just fine so either I'm very sensitive or have just had bad luck :o) If you want to know anything about any of the products regarding gluten I could probably answer it for you.

The cleaning products are really great. I've been using them as long as I can remember and I've never really used anything else so I have to base the comparison on what other people tell me and it gets very positive responses especially the H. People that use it are just amazed. If you are planning to order they have an amazing special on right now, but it ends on the 30th. You can get the kit featured on the Oprah favorites show for $89.60 plus shipping and tax and then that also qualifies you for a free membership (normally $19.95) which gets you 15% off orders for the next year. The $89.60 kit will not qualify for 15% because it's basically at cost with this special. Just wanted to make sure to pass that on since it would be a shame to miss the deal if you're planning to buy anyway. Also, one thing that is not in the kit is the liquid Germicide which I would highly suggest adding. It's a wonderful very effective germ killer.

Hope this helped and feel welcome to ask about any of the products and gluten. I use quite a few things so hopefully I can answer as far as reactions.

Hey, I just noticed in your profile you have a child with a heart defect. My son was born with HLHS. How is your daughter doing and if it's o.k. to ask what does she have? My son is 10 now and is doing so much better than anyone ever expected including us!

We are distributors too and love the stuff. We were introduced when our first son started having all kinds of issues (he is also the one that lead the way to this board).

I absolutely love the makeup. At first the foundation looks a little pricey but it lasts way longer then what I was buying at the store.

The cleaning products are good too.

I love the scrub paste. We use that on the oven and can even let the children use it.

I love the germicide. I used a lot of it this past weekend when the kids were sick.

Holiday~ Thanks for the info. I was not sent the gluten statement. Thanks for letting me know about it.

I do have some questions for you. What products did you have some reactions to? My kids are on the more sensitive side and I would like to be as careful as I can be.

Serena was born with a narrow aorta and by the time she was 5 weeks old, her heart was the size of her chest and functioning at 18%. She had surgery to correct the problem and continued to suffer from heart failure for another 7 months. Her heart is still large for her age and she has a heart murmur, but she is doing very well. We have her next check up sometime in April. Serena is 7 1/2.

Glad to hear that your son is doing well.

mom23boys~( the first time I read your name I thought it ment that you had 23 boys not mom to 3 boys :D ) Thanks for your imput. I will really look into the germaside. Is it like a hand sanitizer or is it something you clean with?

Thanks again~

For me it's mostly the protein powders. I would get some cans that would be fine and then hit one that after about a week there would be a reaction. I think it contains a very small amount, but when it is something you take every day it builds up if that makes sense. My dd was taking it as well and also reacted after a few days so there was no doubt. Stopped the protein and we both got better. My theory is that there probably is a very small amount of cross contamination in the fields, harvesting or whatever. I don't react to soy in other things and only to the protein if I take it every day. We discussed this with someone in S. that used to farm and his response was with the way farming is done how could there not be cross contamination. I also mentioned this to someone that works at S. and they suggested that if I did not have an issue with dairy to try the new whey protein as it contains no grains. I just had some today and so far so good. I have not tried the mealshake since going gluten free so no experience with that one.

The supplements that I can list offhand that I've done fine with are the Multi Vitamin, C, B, all calciums, coq10, EPA, GLA, Mental Acuity, Lecithin, Vitalizer, Nutriferon stress relief and my gluten free dd takes the childrens multi, chew. C, garlic, Defend and Resist stress relief (works great for her with gluten reactions as far as crying etc.) with no problems. I've never had a reaction to any supplement besides the protein drinks I mentioend above. I also take the Performance which I use often in the summer. Just to pass on it really helps my son with his heart condition to handle the heat in the summer. He plays baseball and for some reason without this he just can't do it. He has tried Gatorade and he does not do well with it. Not sure why, but it's a huge help for him.

As far as cleaners I've never reacted to any of them. I don't use the dishwasher so don't use that soap, but with the dishwashing liquid we've never had any problem at all which is important since my dd does the dishes and I know she doesn't rinse as well as she should :o) I am one of those people that generally don't have problems with products unless they're ingested so as far as skin reactions I won't be much help. The nice thing is they do have an unconditional guarantee where for any reason you can return the remainder of the product and get a refund. I began to appreciate that more after going gluten free because there was an expensive rice protein I bought and reacted to and I'm just out quite a bit of money even though it was supposed to be gluten free. I do have a website that I just started building that has a bit of info. on it, but I'm not sure how much it would help you as it's certainly a work in progress, LOL. I do have some links to when the product was on Oprah if that's of interest. I'm working on a page of how to use the cleaners, but I'm not sure when it will be up. If you want the link you can e-mail me. You should be able to e-mail me through my profile.

I'm glad to hear your daughter is doing well. Has she regained full function? Part of our sons condition was a narrow aorta measuring 2 mm so that was repaired as well. It sounds like your dd's was not caught right away is that true? We didn't find out about our sons until he was born and about 12 hours old they found a heart murmur and upon testing found the HLHS. Huge shock for us, but thankfully everything turned out well. We were stationed in VA at the time so we were flown to Cleveland Clinic where he had surgery when he was 6 days old so that was a very overwhelming first week!

Jen,

Not sure if you've checked this, but just in case I wanted to add since I forgot to mention it that I also do well with the Cinch bars. I use them when we go places where we can't eat or if I'll be out somewhere. Keeps me from getting a blood sugar crash and they're great for the kids. We've eaten so many in the past year it's ridiculous. I keep them in the car for emergencies and also have one in my daughters backpack in case something happens to her food at school. It has happened in the past where kids accidentally contaminate her lunch and then she just goes hungry so this is a wonderful backup.

Also, the cleaners were on Oprah's Favorites which is re-airing on wed. so the special offer I mentioned before was extended which is nice.

    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      As you doubtless know now, there are so many ways celiac can present, here's as big a list as I could find online. It would probably be quicker to list what isn't a factor For me personally, nausua, check, left sided back hip pain (my laymans theory here is that celiac is affecting the sciatic nerve which runs from lower back down leg) , check, chest pain also - but for me this comes in short bursts more I guess like heartburn - I thought I was having heart attacks... Check to the rest too... And, for what its worth, other things like being prone to bronchial infection oh hell yes.  I'm currently in the glutened / affected by something group myself so I can only share the advice I've been given. Start a food diary and see if you can track down anything diet related that may be affecting you. Eat as clean as you can, ease up on alcohol, just try and give yourself the best chance of recovery. Have a google of 'heal my gut' diet tips too, you're in the recovery phase at the moment. All the best, at least there's comfort in knowing you're not alone!   Matt  
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Thanks for the advice Matt, I will be sure to take it all onboard. It's really good to talk to others that have had similar experiences. I'm currently upping my b12 and also taking a additional (gluten free) multi and b complex, also omega 3s and Vitiam D3. I had been noticing small improvements that I forgot to mention in my previous post. I noticed that I fall asleep now much easier than before going gluten-free, I also have moments where my body feels more calm, then blood in my stool has stopped I haven't had any in 10 weeks. My mind was constantly fixated on negative thoughts for the past 2 years and they slowly began lifting from all day negative thoughts to maybe half a day of negative thoughts if that makes sense, but this pass week and a half they have come back, I'm also finding my self very nervous again around other people I'm hoping this will pass. The anxiety / depression is the worst symptom for me I would not wish it on my worst enemy, if that went away I would be the happiest man in the world. I found it very hard to talk to people about my mental health issues at work before I lost my job as I found some people stigmatise me and don't understand or really care, but I figure i don't need narrow minded people like that anyway, and as a man its hard to open up but my wife is very supportive and encouraging. Thanks again for the advice really apricate it
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      G'day Chris and welcome to the forum. You have found what I think is the single best resource on the web for advice, support and understanding for this condition. There is so much info here it's difficult to know where to start, but that's what this thread is for, please check it out. I think I got the recommendation for 'Real life with Celiac Disease' by Dennis and Leffler there, I'll second that, there's a lot of very useful info in there which helps to answer a lot of your questions. May be useful for your partner also. Chapters are short and informative so you can dip in and out.  There will doubtless be more advice to come from others with more experience but there's a few things which occur. Firstly, 10 weeks is very early days. Your body has been under an assault for many, many years. Your immune system has been working overtime and like so many others you've only reached diagnosis after reaching a crisis point. You are now healing but it won't be instant and it won't be without ups and downs, speedier and slower phases.  Second, being strict on gluten is essential, but it's only one part of the puzzle. You also need to eat really healthily and try to heal your gut. As you remove gluten you may find that your body starts telling you that other foods are also an issue. Don't panic, it doesn't mean that will always be the case. But you need to approach the next 6 months as a period where you're giving your body the easiest ride possible. That may mean taking probiotics, bone broths or it could also mean avoiding dairy or other foods, at least until your body has had a chance to heal. If you think you may still be getting gluteny effects keeping a food diary, noting what you eat, when and how you feel would help to track down any further issues.  I too battled through the anxiety, had an all too brief moment of bliss as the diet kicked in, then faced a bumpier recovery period in the weeks that followed. It gets easier but it's still difficult for me from time to time. I tried to articulate some of this recently here, it's a long read but maybe some of it will strike a chord. It will get better and you will become better equipped to deal with it. If you're like me you'll find other things getting better over time that you would never have thought to connect to gluten. Now, I've been exceedlingly nice here and not mentioned the England Rugby drubbing but I can feel my self control beginning to slip. So I'll leave it there   Matt
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Thanks for the advice Irene. I will look into that book. I know I'm a long away from healed but I got my hopes up when I felt better in that first week, it's just constantly a battle. I am hoping and praying that I get better soon 
    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Do you take digestive enzymes and probiotics? That may help. Have you met with a dietician for help figuring out how you're getting glutened?

      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.
