In Topic: Awesome Shampoo And Conditioner

22 February 2007 - 07:47 PM

I have finally found the most awesome shampoo and conditioner..It is Back to Basics by Graham Webb. I started out with the green tea shampoo + Cond. it made my hair a little frizzy so I tried the Bamboo love it. I get so many compliments on how good my hair smells. It is great.... My hair is so soft and shiny... Definitly great shampoo! You can find the Back to Basic line lots of places.. I know the walmarts with Salons carry that line also Trade Secret.....

Thanks for posting. I really need a new conditioner. Is it definitely gluten free?

One doc told me that teeth grinding is associated with food allergies. I don't know if that's true or not, but it certainly could be in my case.

In Topic: Thyroid Problems And Celiac Disease

04 February 2007 - 11:53 AM

Hi Everyone,

This past week I have had pain in my neck, mostly inside it feels like I have a lump when I swallow and sometimes the bottom of my neck is very painful. I cant determine if this is problems with my thyroid because lot of the symptoms are the same as Celiac. I was just diagnosed in November 06 and still feeling pretty crappy.

Any advise or info from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

Ask your doc to do some tests for your thyroid. My neck felt very weird, which prompted me to go to the doctor. She felt my neck and said my thyroid felt swollen, so she ordered the tests. Yep, it was a problem. Turns out I have Hashimoto's, a thyroid condition that is associated with Celiac. Lots of the symptoms are the same. I don't think you'll be able to tell which thing causes the symptoms, so definitely get your thyroid tested!

In Topic: Eating At A Buffet

03 February 2007 - 09:34 AM

I've been following the gluten free diet since the beginning of the year. I have a work function that is going to have a buffet. This is my first time in this situation. Just wondered if anyone had any thoughts on the subject. Wendy

I was just in this situation a few weeks ago. I was at a conference in Vegas and my boss set up a dinner for our team. I didn't know what it was going to be until right before we left. Needless to say, it was a sucky situation because I was out of town and didn't have any food to bring for dinner. I didn't want to eat at the buffet, so, I ended up walking around the casino trying to find a restaurant that would do a take out order for me that would be safe. It took about an hour to find something, so when I got back to the buffet, the dinner was pretty much over. But, at least I didn't get sick. It was one of those frustrating Celiac moments when you feel alone and like a freak. It sucked, but I don't have those moments nearly as often as I used to.

In Topic: Facial Redness

I get redness too. It's mostly my nose and on my cheaks near my nose. People have asked me if I have a sunburn. I can't remember where I read this, but somewhere I read that this is a symptom of digestive problems.
