Topics I've Started

"ark Naturals" Pet Products

13 August 2009 - 08:49 PM

Ark Naturals products (specifically Neem pet shampoo) is the only new item introduced into my home :( my 100% gluten-free home.. That, and I started eating cooked onions (possible allergen??)


* Please note before posting : I am extremly sensitive to trace amounts of gluten, and I washed my pet in our kitchen sink.
I washed her once a week ago when my symptoms started, and once today when I got much sicker.

Sunscreen / Sunblock

21 May 2009 - 09:15 PM

I have skin reactions to said items (gluten, dairy, soy, rice, olive) and have been having a impossible time finding sun screen..!!

Does anyone know of a dedicated gluten-free sun block that may be (or is) free of these other items?

gluten-free Kosher Meats?

25 April 2009 - 02:11 PM

I was kosher all my childhood and teen years.. and now all the meats I've been able to find (only two brands - Blackwing & The Buffalo Guys; or fresh stuff from a meat market) are not kosher, just organic. While arguably similar, kosher and organic meats are distinctly different.. Really I'd love a brand that is both.

Olive?

23 April 2009 - 07:12 AM

After eliminating every other item I formally consumed multiple times daily, from coffee to apples, I realized I was getting an hour to two hour long stomach ache (dyspepsia/nausea/lightheadeness) every time I ate foods cooked in olive oil. Starting immediately after consumption. My face started breaking out pretty bad after I ironically switched to olive oil soap, thinking I could be allergic to something in my old soap.

Before, I had assumed it was a Birch allergy based on the timing, tonsil swelling with meals, and my massive seasonal allergies.. But olive is also part of oral allergy syndrome, and also fits the timing. I'm pretty sure olive allergy is also more common than Birch?

I'd like to know if any other celiacs have an olive sensitivity/allergy?

Acne Treatment/wash/pads?

23 April 2009 - 06:52 AM

Is there such a product in existence?? Any time I accidentally consume any of the listed allergens, or touch them usually, I break out. No one likes to break out, only to be able to even wash it with specialized soap.

I emailed neutrogina (clean and clear) asking about their products in general, and specified 5 items, by name and item number.. they emailed me back saying this : "Our line of products is quite extensive, and we do not have a specific list of gluten free products. If you would like to contact us again with the name of a specific product for which you need ingredient information, we would be happy to assist you." - - - In other words they not only didn't read my email (which asked about legumes/soy and other allergens, not just gluten) but don't seem to have any CC-control methods for any allergens on their lines. I am a very sensitive celiac, and certainly can't use their products.
