In Topic: Celiac Sprue, Or Latex Allergy?

16 September 2008 - 11:25 PM

Maybe I am too scientific-minded (in this question of mine here now), but i wd like to know (if there is a chemist here the question may be answered) what is the ingredient of "latex" that we react to? We dolknow that in gluten (wheat) there is a protein called gliadin which conatins opiate molecules. Is there some opiate in latex? (Not impossibble, I am just asking.) I am a bit frightened by this, because it seems now that glutenfre eating is not enough I have this cystitis issue banning tomato and many nuts and so evidently I wd like to see more clearly. I will look around on the net to see what latex consits of. But now I must run. tnakx for listening. :rolleyes:

In Topic: For Long-time Strict Gfers With Depression/anxiety

I am so glad my depression lifted. i suffered from it in all my 53 three years and then last year Is tarted to eat gluten-free and it lifted...in a few weeks. And also my compensating compulsive erotical manias subdued or diminished. I never have been so healthy - I also stopped all acidic food (because I have polyurea - intersticial cystitis). I am frightened when i hear about cases where the depresive moods did not lift. i hope mine stays as it is now - lifted. (I lose this when I get - involuntarily - glutened but only for a day).

In Topic: Am I The Only One Who Can See The Link?

If you are the only one who sees this? as some member said it:
" No, most decidedly, no. Most of us here see this...but unfortunately, most DOCTORS do not.........no money in it for them. "
I agree. But slowly, partly due to these foirums, things will change hopefully. I thinktha bipolars autists and schizos who get better could raise their voice...Of course it is not easy. Generally we will not find an openmindend audience. There are people who suffer and refuse to take advice. I was told I shd try to eliminate gluten fr 6 years and I did not listen...I do not know why. I meet very intlligent friends with sons who have autism or schizo - and they refuse to try this diet. Instead they take drugs.
That is life.

In Topic: What If?

18 July 2008 - 05:36 AM

My son is now 11 and I am fully there with him. I quite honestly have very hazy memories of the first 10 years of his life. I pretend when I see picture that they kind of jog my memory or maybe it's just the memories of the pictures themselves. I try not to think about that, I hope that made sense.

Same with me. I am 54 and I was mostly depressed and maniac (bipolar) for decades (and was also treated for epileptic fits). Now I do not have either since last year i found out (here on the net) that a gluten free diet helps. It sure helps for me. Maybe there are "real" depressed" people but for e it only comes if I eat gluten. No "what if". It sure comes.

In Topic: Celiac And Depression [?]

I also have this Jekyll-Hyde type of depression when I am glutenized. And it clears away if I pay attention to my diet. Strange. But doctors are not interested, probably because ifI am on a diet strictly their drugs are of no use. (And I dont use them anyway because they dont help me.)
