In Topic: Severe Corn Allergy Also & Looking For Help!

05 May 2005 - 08:43 PM

Hi, I know what you mean about the corn! I've been gluten-free for six months, but felt really achy a lot. I was complaining to someone about that, and they said "well what have you added in since you went gluten-free?"...okay, I added in a lot of corn stuff to make up for the lost wheat, like tacos, corn chips, tortillas etc.. I took them out and the achy stuff went away. Doesn't seem fair, but hey, at least I know what the problem is. I figure I can probably tolerate it occasionally anyway. Also remember that sometimes we add in so much rice when going gluten-free, and that can end up being a problem for some also. Its worth trying it without the grains, and adding them back in one by one. Good luck, Valerie

To Maso: I thank you also for the Hogan thesis link. That was exactly the piece of literature my husband was needing to find to help him think through his ADD. We are also getting the book. Thank you. Valerie

Yep, definitely a likelihood for actresses. I read about a model, recently, who had finally figured out why she was so skinny, which made her a sought after model, but was bad for her health because she had celiac. I might have read that in Living Without. I wish people could learn that super thin is not necessarily healthy for women for so many reasons.
Personally I think Living Without is a good name for the magazine. I'm happy to be "living without". I think we are so much more in touch with our bodies, and doing the right things for our health than the general population. It's just another way to reach a balance in our health that most people will never know. Most of that stuff we've eliminated isn't very good for anyone! Valerie

That is a great candy list, still-----I really crave the Lindt brand round truffle things they sell at the check out at Borders Books!! Does anyone know if these are gluten-free or not? I don't need the calories so maybe it would be better if they are off limits! Valerie

Mela, I hope you feel better soon. We will not be defeated by one funky chicken!! Since you are wondering about that chicken you ate: do you know that sometimes chicken has stuff injected into the meat by the processor, like a some sort of salt solution containing who knows what. I was really surprized to read a label in the grocery on some raw chicken saying it had this stuff, - I don't know if that would have gluten in it, but it makes me suspicious, maybe the place you got it used a product like that the second time.
FYI when I had really bad food allergies(in my early 20's) I was helped the most by sublingual drops which trained my body to tolerate stuff by putting tiny doses under the tongue...and interfering with the IGE reaction. Cool stuff. I'm having a few more food allergies now (much later) ... and I'm about to do the Bioset program with my naturopath - which uses accupressure. I'll post on how that goes, but she says its really effective. Keep your chin up. Valerie
