Pop Corn And Make Up

4 posts in this topic

First does any one know what kind of pop corn is safe?

I was wondering if it is really important that I use gluten free make up, tooth paste, body lotion and what ever else i would use. Just wondering if that could be a reason for all the nauseas. And if it is important what do I use?

For the popcorn, I'd recommend avoiding those prepackaged, pre-seasoned things, and just make your own. Healthier, safer, and more economical too. I'm sure some are gluten-free, but I don't buy them, so can't suggest any. I've heard the microwave ones have some nasty chemicals lining the bags though.

Yes, it is important to use gluten-free toothpaste, skin/hair care products, etc. There are many threads about such products, and I'm sure you'll also get plenty of suggestions too.

Hi Valerie,

For popcorn, I buy Orville Redenbacher plain kernals in the plastic jar. I make it on top of the stove with a little light olive oil and sea salt.

I would definately check and make sure your personal care products are gluten-free. For me, this made a big difference. I use Crest toothpaste, Dove bar soap, Softsoap liquid soap for hand washing. Garnier makes lots of gluten-free products--call the 800# on the bottle to make sure (their customer service is very nice), as does Dove. I use salon haircare products by Brocato--the Spplash line is gluten-free.

A bunch of us here like Everyday Minerals--

They offer samples, so you can play and figure out what colors look best on you. I use their lip glosses, as well as Burt's Bee's Lip Shimmers. :)

I vote for making your own popcorn also. It's easy and if your pan has a glass lid it is fun to watch. You can get air poppers real cheaply also. You can use all kinds of things to season. Herbs, grated cheeses, butter etc.

It is important to use gluten free make up and toiletries. There is a thread on here for a good mineral makeup and if you do a board search you may be able to find info on whether products you like are safe or not.

    • Those could be celiac symptoms or they could be something else.  Just because celiac runs in your family, I would not jump to conclusions.  That could be dangerous!   For example, my niece presented with celiac disease symptoms.  She tested negative but they found that she has Crohn's (not that she can't ever develop celiac disease).  While a gluten free diet could not hurt her, it is not the cause of her Crohn's flare-ups.    I would not worry about his weight unless he is no longer on the growth charts.   There could be more related to his anxiety issues too. i would NOT recommend sharing prescriptions, especially on a 9 year old!  Dapsone is some pretty evil medication that can do some serious liver damage (but if you have DH or  leporisy, it might be worth the risk -- but I would think not for kids).  For DH, sticking to a gluten-free diet  is much preferred, but I will let one of our members who has DH comment on that.   Those with DH often do not test positive in blood work.  Best to get a skin biopsy (tricky on DH so read up). Please find a dermatologist  and/or a Ped GI who is celiac savvy.

    • So, now they have found a metal toxicity in my body along with needing to be gluten free.  For the toxicity, I am now taking supplements after and between meals.  This a good thing because it prompts me to actually eat 3 meals a day and in a timely manner and not just a grab on the go item whenever.  The down side is remembering to take the silly things.  I can honestly say how much a pain it is to remember to take the supplements sometimes.  Been on this regimen for about a week now, and I am starting to feel better and all my systems are getting thoroughly cleaned out.  The real test will be in about 3 weeks or so, as it is about this time I become more vulnerable to the neurological symptoms.  I actually did some research on metal toxicity and found something incredible.  The symptoms I had been having all fall under this problem.  This could also have been yet another contributing factor of why I needed to go gluten free. Just a thought.  One thing I did consistently find is that once the toxicity is taken care of, this would not take away any food allergies or gluten issues.  I had gone through a different detox program back in February-March, and the neurological symptoms I have been dealing with was magnified x10 it seemed.  Another praise in this regimen is that I have been virtually symptom free since taking these supplements.  A few episodes but very minor.   
    • I have not taken him to a dermatologist. I have dapsone, which I put on the rash, it always clears up. I have it for another family member. But then I started reading about celiac and all these dots are out there but not connected.  The next time he has the bumps, I am going to take him in. In the mean time, I am trying to find a dermatologist who understands the condition. I don't want my kid to have celiac. And I kinda feel crazy for thinking he may have a gluten issue but with it in my family and him having these other things, I want to be dilligent.   i will read up on the test you suggested. Thanks for taking the time to read and respond everyone.   
    • I tested positive to deamidated gliadin in August at a hospital. My old GI tested me using gliadin (the test listed on your result) in September and it was negative. Literally the next day, my new GI tested for deamidated gliadin again and it was positive (I was unaware the hospital scheduled an appointment with the new GI for follow up).  If you still suspect it, Google deamidated gliadin, print out the Mayo clinic lab info and circle the part where it says they have discontinued the use of gliadin in favor of the deamidated gliadin.  Has he seen a dermatologist?
