In Topic: How About Chicago?

11 December 2005 - 08:58 AM


I am moving to Lakewood (nr. algonquin) next week, from London, and have just found this site. I was wondering if you knew more about the support group in Arlington Heights? Would love to meet up with some people in the area. I actually haven't been successful on the gluten free diet alone so now I am doing the specific carbohydrate diet.



Thanks for the whole foods info, yeah that is a bit far for me, but it makes me think that if there is a group there, maybe there are others.
KC - not really sure how I found out about the group in AH, I have been to sooooooooo many sites, and when I saw they were in AH I kind of just wrote them off. Try google perhaps, sorry I couldn't be more help

Hi Denice,
Yes..Arlington Heights would be ok..Maybe it would be on another day than the one out here at Whole Foods..Arlington Heights is sort of far but, it could give me an excuse to stop at Woodfield on the way..haha! If you have any info on the meeting I'd love it..Thanks!

Which whole foods? What town?

I live in Oak Park, the closest group meeting place I know of is in Arlington Heights. Bit of a hike. I was really surprised to find there wasn't one actually in Chicago, or perhaps I just haven't found it yet. I think we would all love it if there was a support group in our home town, sometimes I just need to talk, I am sure you do too. I don't have kids, so I am afraid I can't be much help on that end, but if you want me to track down the support group in Arlington, just let me know :)

In Topic: Yeast Infections And Gluten Intolerence

Since you didn't mention ThreeLac, I'd point that out as was noted earlier in the thread. I've no personal experience with it, but there are others who seem to have had success using it. I only used Caprylic acid, which seemed to do the job quite well, especially considering I had been unknowingly drowning in yeast for years. And yes, no sugars of any kind, even fruits. I can tolerate some fruits on occation, but I have to be careful. However, since going gluten-free, that seems to be getting better as my gut heals.

Thank goodness for this site :)

Funny this subject just came up. I don't have yeast infections, but I have been dealing with cronic sinus problems for years. Recently my ENT doc said the dreaded work "perhaps you will need a porcedure.." I decided to start doing some of my own research to see if I could find a natural cure. Yesterday, after many hours on the internet I found "Candida" and how many links it has with celiac disease. I ordered the Threelac and am going to give that a try. I will let you all know if it helps at all.
and, yes, I love this site too!

Well babe, I have the same fears, so don't feel alone, and always email me if ya need some verification on who and how you are. I have always been on top of my game, way on top of it. I have multiple degrees, am an award winning designer, until recently made over 200 a year and then in April I was diagnosed with celiac disease after being so violently ill for 10 days I couldn't even walk myself down the stairs from my bedroom. Maybe I am just venting, but this disease does unbelievable tricks to your mind. If you are a control oriented person, like me, it is miserable! Sorry to state this to those of you who aren't self control freaks, but I have to assume there is at least one of you out there like me!!! I have lost 35 lbs since April, I am a size 2, down form a size 10. I am currently unemployed, because there were too many days I just couldn't get my ass out of bed to go to work because I couldn't sleep all night. My hub calls me a vampire, sleep all day, up all night. At night my mind races about what this disease could do to me, during the day I am just to tierd to deal with it, all in all it is a bad mind set for me. I am sorry this is a negative post, my point was, we all feel neglected with this disease, and at least for me, very alone. This is the most postive forum I have found on the net to at least read and get some reaction from others with the same problem. I hope I haven't gone to far here, but I just think that something needs to be done, I am not sure what yet, but I am tierd of feeling like the village freak, and I too worry that I might not wake up tomorrow.
