Thanks for the advice and I will definitely try the charcoal thing. So far, I think I'm going to try these other remedies instead of the glutenase. I'm finding that a glass of Merlot helps quite a bit. I've been a T-totaller my whole life, but since this "gluten thing" has hit me, I'm looking anywhere for relief during accidental glutenings. It sheds a whole new light on 1 Timothy 5:23, "Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses." Makes me wonder if Timothy had celiac!

Yay! I've got a terrific update to this! Last night, hubby and I were talking about how well the boys were doing. We've been getting lots of compliments about how much they know for their ages. Leo recognizes now that I've been working with them everyday. I didn't even bring it up, but all of a sudden he got this strange sort of sheepish expression, then struggled to get his words out. Finally, he said that he was okay with having a third! I was sooo surprised and happy! He said that he also noticed that I haven't been calling him as much at work except to know when to have dinner ready, and he also has seen how going gluten-free for the last 3 1/2 months has helped me to deal with life stressors better than I might have in the past. Not to mention increased energy!
We've just built the crib for our 17 month old and are now sleep training him. He's been sleeping with me all the time because he would nurse when he slept. But he has been biting me all the time . I thought he was done with that, but he started up again. As much as I will miss that close cuddle time with my little guy, it will be a relief to sleep in my own bed and not get bitten all the time!
I know it won't help right, now, but for the long run, if you don't already do it, you might try taking some yoga classes. My psychologist recommended them to me for my mild anxiety. I've only taken one so far, and it's really nice! It's a work out too, but doesn't feel like one until your muscles are a little sore later. I had tried to do some yoga in the past via books and videos, but I never got anything from it until I took an actual class.
I hope this suggestion helps, but I'm afraid I don't really know anything about hashimoto's. Feel better!
