In Topic: New Grist gluten-free Beer Wins Medal At Gabf!

15 October 2006 - 01:11 PM

I just cracked open a New Grist in celebration. Back in the pre-gluten free days I went to the GABF once and it was like I died and went to heaven.


Is great stuff! I get mine at Whole Foods, 2 local stores already had it, the 3rd I special ordered it and now they sell it like hotcakes. Nice taste, seems a touch strong, gets me loopy quick and the hangover is not the best, but it sure is nice to drink beer on Sundays with Football :cheers

In Topic: When Will The Doctors Wake Up In The Usa?

US doctors will catch up with the rest of the world in about 10-15 years. That is the norm for our country.



I hate the thought of the suffering people will have to go through in those next 10-15 years, so many of our relatives for instance. When I try to explain to people about Celiac I tell them in 10 years everyone will know about it and believe that to be true. I really believe 10 years is about 10 years to long though. Change needs to happen now.

In Topic: Tired All The Time...

09 March 2006 - 11:17 PM

This past month I've found myself very tired physcally after a little bit of hard work. I can especally tell thsn when I'm romping with kids - after about an hour and a half or so I'm dead. LOL. I've been gluten-free (mostly!) for about three months now. When I say "mostly" I mean that sometimes I do accidently eat small amounts of gluten... but nothing that I can tell that would make my body act like this.

Anyone else have this problem? I've thought that I'm maybe missing some vitimans I should be taking? If I should be taking vitimans, what brands are gluten-free?

Thanks so much, peoples! :)



If I have a "minor" gluten accident, like my roomate used the same spoon for her food and mine for instance I'm wrecked for a few weeks. This is after 16 months "gluten free" with many such accidents. When I steer clear of any accidents (which is not easy I know) I feel better and better with each passing hour. I suggest being more careful about the accidents. I know little about vitiman supplements but take a complex/complete supplement and a calcium complex regularly, I won't suggest a brand but highly recommend you be sure it is glutten free and says so on label before you take it. Many brands do some cost more but it is worth it IMO. After 3 months I was still feeling God awful though better FWIW, 16 months later I'm a million times better but the accidents are very noticable,and I do mean very. The tiredness (FOR ME) got alot better around the 6 month period. I'm still nowhere near what I remeber of myself but it's gets better everyday as long as I don't have an accident. From my experiences I can't recommend highly enough staying away from those accidents no matter what that takes. For me that means preparing all my own food and only eating what I am 100% (not 99.9999999%) sure is gluten free.

Hi McDougall,

Here is a thread that might interest you regarding this subject:

http://www.glutenfre...showtopic=13475

It was one of our brainstorming sessions!!

Karen



Thank God for bright Celiacs like you Karen. I only read the full thread in bits right now but will give it a more clear reading tommorow, but your idea is the one that just might work it seems to me. $ talks and maybe we just must work with that as horrible as that is. It is genius though, really! Maybe this idea is the answer, it very well might be. I love it Bless your heart! Fight fire with fire instead of just ranting and raving and getting upset like I do, You have a solution that could just work. It's all about the $ but maybe we can use that. I'm giddy thinking about it. Brilliant! So Glad I signed back onto this forum tonight. If you have any more great ideas, links to threads here and elsewhere please show me the way. I really HAVE to do something to make a difference, not for me so much but for my niece and other children who should never have to go through what I and so many of you have.
