Posts I've Made

In Topic: Mind Fog, Anxiety

07 November 2008 - 06:02 PM

I have been gluten free for many years now, and although it took awhile to clear the mind, I now only get Brain Fog when I get cross contaminated.

You may think you are completely clear of gluten, but tiny bits can sneak up on you. For instance, I only meet a friend for coffee where we can pour our own coffee. That way I can check the inside of the cup before I pour. I have found bread residue in the bottom of coffee cups from the dishwasher. This would certainly trigger a Brain Fog session had I used them.
It's tiny problems like this that may be causing Fog without us realizing it.

Hmmmm, my hubby does that twice a day, I always just thought it was a man thing. :lol:
He's not the one with Celiac Disease.

Seriously, anything with sugar will give you down time, even without Celiac. But things like eggs with high protien should give you a boost instead. That is a puzzle. Maybe just your system telling you that it's time to nap. :)

In Topic: Heinz Soups

07 November 2008 - 05:45 PM

I was in town on Wed. and couldn't find any Heinz soups :angry: Guess we don't have them around.

I also checked out the Imagine soups and couldn't find the words gluten free on them. I remember buying them a few years ago with gluten free written on them, but it's not there anymore.
The ingredients look fine though, so I bought a tomato to try it. Haven't tried it yet, maybe tomorrow.

In Topic: Any Body Had Shingles More Than Once?

04 November 2008 - 03:18 PM

I have been fortunate enough not to have it, however, there is a new vaccine out for shingles. If you had chicken pox when you were a kid, it might be wise to get one. I totally forgot to ask my doctor for one last time I was in. Hopefully I will remember next time ;)

In Topic: What Foods?

04 November 2008 - 03:02 PM

Thank you, I've booked marked it as well. Will have to look and see if my two main food groups are included.
Chocolate and wine. :lol:
Seriously, this looks very helpful!
