Training Camp In Pa
0

5 posts in this topic

Well, since a few weeks there's a question that bothers me (especially after visiting germany and my german team). I thought, how cool it would be, when my german team could visit us in their summer vacation. And since there are 2 people in our team with celiac (one of my students and myself) we could offer a vacation for celiac people also.

I already talked with my boss at the one YMCA about it (i instruct at several YMCA's) and she was excited. In fact, she asked me first at the very same moment I wanted to ask her. Funny, eh? So now we made an appointment next tuesday at 10.30 am about how we're going to plan everything. When I was home, it popped into my head, that it would be awesome to integrate the celiac people in there. I mean, if we have to get food for two people, why not for 10 or so???

And I think, this wouldn't be a bad idea, to bring the celiacs and the healthy people together, since the awareness would grow a great deal among people who don't know, what celiac disease is. Or maybe they know, but they are not aware how many restrictions we have with it.

So this will be more like a training and stay healthy camp...lol. We train kickboxing and/or musical forms/acrobatic kicks. Don't worry, it's semicontact. I already saw 3 and 70 year olds do that. You must know, with semicontact you can make your own pace very good. And it will be focused on every level: beginner, advanced and pros. But you could probably also do simple stuff like aerobic or so in the YMCA itself or go totally without sport and do more sightseeing. If you have a YMCA AWAY membership card (the letters AWAY on the backside of your membership card) you can take these classes for free or you can pay visitor fee for one day also. I just wanted to mention it, because you could make a vacation and eat glutenfree without much problems also. And we try to do fun stuff, like go on the climbing tower or visit Hershey park or so.

So if you have any questions or regards, post them on here and I will ask my boss tuesday.

Hugs, Stef

Steff-

YMCA does gluten free camps for kids through the GIG (gluten intollerance group). You might want to try to contact that "camp" to see how they do things and how they got set up. I know they have been doing it for a while now.

    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
    • I have been recently diagnosed with celiac. It causes terrible attacks that start with ear ringing (?) Anyway, I too, cannot eat Budding's lunch meat. I have discovered that it causes a gluten reaction. I did not realize it until the third time eating it as I am vegetarian. But as I literally can eat almost nothing now, I was craving "real food". I ate this lunch meat thinking it was safe and voila! Celiac attack. Swollen, painful ankle, ringing ears, itching mouth, nausea, anxiety, going to the bathroom way too much, etc...I also cannot toletare corn starch so, that might be it? So, I agree, I definitely cannot eat that nor can I tolerate 20 ppm. I empathize with all of you. Looks like potatoes and tea, at least till I learn to cook.  :-p
