Let's Make People Aware Of The Truth (A Response To The Rediculous Post By Buzzfeed)

26 September 2014 - 06:27 AM

  I don't know if any of you saw the rediculous post by buzzfeed, but it was enfuriating!  I'm not going to include the link because I refuse to go back to it.  I believe they were puposefully inflamitory in order to drive traffic to their site!  They did, at least recognize Celiac as a real problem, but said that for anyone else who had a gluten intollerance it was all in their head!
  You guys all know how much of  a struggle it is to be gluten free.  All of you understand how exhausting it is to have to defend yourself around every corner, because someone thinks they innately know more than you about what it means to be gluten free.  I'm sure you have all been accused of being unhealthy because you don't eat gluten (what the heck is that even about!!!????).
  I'm saying all of this, because (sometimes unfortunately) I can't just sit back.  When things bother me this much, I have to do something.  I know there is already a celiac awareness month (or week?) but it is in May.  


Gluten In All Grains!? Corn, Rice, Etc...?

04 March 2014 - 03:57 PM

I have celiac and have been gluten free for about 3 years now, and my aunt recently went gluten free, after a string of health issues.  The thing is I still struggle with fatigue quite frequently.  I feel waaaayyy better than before going gluten free, but I still don't ahve a ton of really good days.  My aunt has been gluten free for about 6 months and is stil having some issues (she just started having tremors for one).  She has been doing a lot of research and came across a video (link below) with Dr. Peter Osborne who says that there is a gluten protien in all grains, such as corn and rice.  He says that a large number of people with celiac still have issues because they are eating these things. 

Last week I decided to cut out all grains, cut back on sugars, and not eat any beans (I added a little bit of paleo philosophy into last week).  The thing is I felt great.  I had a lot more energy.  Then the last I ate a gluten free meal at P.F changs and a gluten free meal at Red Robin.  After P.F Chang's I felt sick and kind of nauseated for about an hour.  After the RR meal I got REALLY tired (the type of tired I deal with where it feels like I've taken benadryl or something). 

So my quesiton is this... What are your thoughts?  Maybe this is why so many forums talk about corn problems!?
