Is there a good video somewhere I can send to my family members that will help them understand some of the gluten free basics? Holiday family dinner coming up and need to help them learn about this.

By a high school student, but it won some award and looks pretty professional. Also only 3 minutes!
live in Okinawa, Japan; hope to resume training for ultra-marathon soon
casein-free, legume-free; 99% fructose-free
I cope by drinking artisanal teas, hand-picked in Taiwan, all gluten-free

This was produced 5 years ago and I haven't watched in a while -- so I apologize for any new info not included in it.
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/27/09 diagnosed fibromyalgia - supplemented with amino acids - improvement followed by substantial deterioration
maybe one good hour per day for ~17 months
8/10/11 - Elimination Diet for Autoimmune Disease - incredible improvement along with clear reactions to most high lectin foods
only remaining symptom - severe heat intolerance / reaction to heat, humidity and exercise
Tomato, Pepper, Potato, Peanut, Soy, Bean, Pea, Citrus, Pineapple, Avocado, Shellfish, Dairy, Grain, Nut and Seed FREE
3/1/12 - Horrible flare -- same ol' symptoms but worse ~ 7/1/12 - Endo: Active Celiac 3+ years - as gluten-free as humanly possible.
11/15/12 - Improving once again - Almonds back - Eggs gone
12/1/12 - Histamine containing and inducing foods FREE -- probable cause of my heat/exercise "allergy"...
...this was one of my earliest symptoms as a child -- the enzyme (DAO) needed to regulate histamine is created in the small intestine.
If you have read this far - hang in there - obtaining health with any AI is a marathon, not a sprint!

Board rules forbid me naming it or providing a link to it, you'll have to look at my profile to find it!
