I just thought I'd add that I also use Dessert Organics for Shampoo, and Zuzu and Ecco Bella Make-up.

In Topic: Thinking Of Going Vegetarian

I was able to add both dairy and eggs back into my diet AFTER I found the rest of my intolerances and AFTER some major healing had taken place .
I am realistic enough to know that with my intolerances I will ( probaly ) not be able to vegan and healthy. Being healthy is what it is all about :) So I am grateful that eggs and dairy are something that I can currently tolerate .I am currently vegetarian and I am good with that :D
My suggestion is : if you are not showing any signs of other intolerances add dairy and eggs back ONE at a time . Keep a food journal and see how it goes.
I recently I attempted to add corn back into my diet ,,, with my system clear of other intolerances it did not take long to know that corn TRULY DOES NOT work for me :ph34r: at all :blink: ever :wacko:


Thank you so much, your post makes me feel more at ease about this. I'm sorry you couldn't regain corn. :( I strongly suspect I'll be the same with dairy. But I won't know if I don't try. I think I'll test eggs soon but the dairy may wait until after the Holidays. My reaction to dairy has been pretty ugly and immediate.

Hugs, Fire Fairy. It's natural to want to please those you love. But you gave eggs and dairy up because your body rejected them. How much fun will you be to be around if your intestines are tied in knots and you have the hershey squirts? Anyone who slams you for your diet, no matter what way you chose or need to eat, is not your friend. Your boyfriend's family not only accepts you but tried to accomodate you. The person you are is what matters. He souns like a good guy! :-)


Thank you. I plan to gently test eggs by one day eating a piece of Udi's bread. If that goes well 2 pieces, and if that goes well I'll will go from there. In the past the reaction to eggs was just very loose stool the next morning but who knows having not had any for so long it could be much worse now. Definitely going to be careful.

Quoting Bartfull
"If it was just an elevated risk of lymphoma, well, it would be up to you. But there are so many other horrible conditions that eating gluten can lead to! Gluten ataxia, which mimics MS, rheumatoid arthritis which is SO painful, DH, which they call the suicide rash because the itching and pain are so bad. Continuing to eat gluten can lead to dementia. It can lead to other cancers. And so many other things!"

You should really keep all that in mind when you think about giving in. I'm 38 and have Gluten Ataxia. I have already had a couple mini strokes as a result and I know I'm lucky no permanent damage was done. Celiac could kill me, but I will not let it. I look at food I know has gluten as poison, deadly poison. If it may have gluten I think "well that may be poison". It's not worth the risk. I have no children but as you do when your thinking about caving to peer pressure think about how much your children need you. Personally I just think about the pain and how much I don't want to die anytime soon.

It does get easier, and as you start feeling better you will realize it's worth it.
