Topics I've Started

Codex Alimentarius

25 September 2008 - 06:53 PM

I have a couple of links I wanted to share but I need to warn anyone who reads them that they have political undertones. Even so, this effects people who choose any alternative medications to help heal the body, even supplementation... so it applies here.
Ron Paul originally introduced a bill and info can be found here: http://www.thenhf.com/codex_52.htm
And while most of what you'll find isn't flattering, since an election year is upon us, Mitt Romney has a hand in support OF maintaining our right to choose in this issue- if only because he's been lobbied (I can find worse things to be connected to other than vitamins!)





I encourage anyone interested to sign petitions you may find and to learn about it if you can- if it interests you.

Stomach Cramps?

15 September 2008 - 06:56 PM

Do stomach cramps come only because gluten is ingested, and only a reaction to gluten OR
does gluten do enough damage to cause other foods to cause pain in the digestive process?
This would be pre-diagnostic... so the damage could be there.

For instance, I send my daughter with crushed fruit but the acidity in the fruit causes stomach burning b/c of obvious damage in there.
Would this happen to someone who currently is eating gluten or does it only happen as a result of gluten as it's passing through the digestive tract?

Hope that was clear.

Varying Degrees Of D.h.?

14 September 2008 - 10:35 AM

My daughter has had DH once- perhaps twice (maybe as a baby in conjunction with a stomach flu- on her diaper area), most recent, 4 years ago, providing what she has now isn't DH.
Like I said, it has shown up more in a classic sense without a doubt- 4 yrs ago but I'm having a hard time differentiating what is on her skin now.
I thought of taking a picture and trying to load it to show the forum to get feedback- but only one computer loads chips so I haven't gotten on that.
She's had atopic dermatitits all her life, and an allergic skin reaction to peanut products when she was younger- this is different than that. That would look more like a ringworm patch, with a scaliness to it after a week, kind of thick.
This is a bunch of tiny red bumps in an area on her forearm, but not enough to be considered a blister, and definitely not acne or ingrown hair. We tried to show it to the dr. but no response. One or two within the patch are red from scratching and they don't go away easily. (background, she has to stay glutened til the end of the month).
Tiny red bumps, some a tiny bit bigger, some red and opened from itching. Not flea bites either. She has them around her knees too.
Different than the rash 4 yrs ago, different from when and if it was when she was a baby. And only in small patches around her body- another place is on the back of her neck.

Boars Head

I visited my deli the other day and noticed the Boars Head sign that stated all meats and condiments were Gluten Free. Just thought I'd pass that along.

Lymph Nodes

08 September 2008 - 11:56 AM

Reading about lymph system in GI tract, but we're not there yet with knowing.
Very concerning to see dd has had lymph node in each arm swollen and painful over the last 2-3 months.
She never told me, but she's had one swollen near her groin.

My worry is b/c of the occurrence of lymphoma with Celiac's.
Could it be something adrenal related? How would a doctor know?

Sorry for a similar post in one of my first posts in another thread. I wanted to separate this one symptom from the rest and see how familiar it is to anyone.
