In Topic: Am Not Sure What Is Going On...

13 February 2010 - 08:34 AM

well, I have made no changes in any of my bath productss.. I have a pretty simple routine. I use Pantene shampoo and conditioner, and Loreal facial products.....



Hi, thought you might need this...I was using Pantene too. Me, personally...I'm not taking any chances, even a small amount is not worth the risk for me.

Thanks for contacting Pantene.

We know Celiac is a serious disease, so we want to give you clear information regarding the use of our beauty care products. If wheat and/or gluten aren't directly added to a product by us, these ingredients won't be listed on our packages. Like many companies, we often purchase the scents for fragranced products from outside suppliers, and the components of these substances are proprietary information belonging to those companies. Therefore it's possible that a very small amount (generally parts per million) of gluten may be present.

We sought advice from physicians; they told us it would be very unlikely a person with Celiac disease would have a reaction from a trace amount of gluten coming into contact with his skin or hair. This is because wheat, rye, barley and/or gluten generally cause symptoms when they're ingested. Since our beauty care products are designed to be used externally on the skin, their use shouldn't be an issue for someone with this disease.

Since gluten sensitivity can vary among people, it would be best if you consulted with your physician about the use of all types of consumable goods, if you haven't already. You might even consider using one of our fragrance free products that doesn't list gluten or wheat extracts on the label.

Thanks again for getting in touch with us. I hope this response has been helpful to you. For more information about Celiac, you may want to check out http://celiac.com/ and http://celiac.org

In Topic: Can It Be Soy Too...

05 February 2010 - 06:20 PM

Hello,

I had the same thing happen. I went gluten free, but still having Dairy because of being new to the diet and feeling like there was nothing left I could eat, I'm half Italian...I LOVE my pastas and all CHEESES :D

I had to find something to put on my gluten-free cereal in the morning, so I tried Silk in the vanilla flavor. I never used it before, but I noticed I would get these bad stomach aches, figured out Soy was not agreeing with me either....at all! It was bad. I guess it did more damage than good.

Just last week I bought the So Delicious brand Coconut Milk in Vanilla, I LOVE it, plus the health benefits from Coconut alone are so worth it to me!! When I read an article on Whole Foods website. http://blog.wholefoo...y-alternatives/

I know I have to find non-dairy alternatives to heal up. The article was loaded with ideas and consumer reviews on the brands/flavors that they love.

I've had the enterolab test done and that's it so far, but I'm pretty sure I have leaky gut.
I have all the symptoms and not sure where to go from here...(insurance).

Hello!

Hope this helps! I contacted them last week and received my reply. I know this has been posted on here in several locations as being gluten-free, and I still checked to be safe. As you can see, it is not 100% gluten-free :

Hello,
