In Topic: Soaking Kitchen Tools In Oxy Clean - Thoughts?

26 November 2013 - 09:12 PM

I've removed my posts, as I do not wish to see my post used for argument fodder, and don't have time or energy to keep clarifying.


If anyone wants to know what to do with their tools, please do a web search and decide for yourself. Geez.

In Topic: Pregnancy Food

26 November 2013 - 09:05 PM

I'm not pregnant, just to be clear, but wanted to offer some encouragement, I hope. You ladies have my kudos for bringing a new life into the world while having to deal with this condition.


At any rate, calories are important, of course, but more than that is the consumption of vitamins and minerals. While I was in recovery from my last glutening, I decided to try juicing and smoothies. I felt great! I've been about a week off, and I'm starting to feel blah again. For carbs, I eat potatoes and rice, and some corn products, including grits. I'm a little lactose intolerant so I try to get my calcium from spinach and milk substitute. 


You ladies will need to make sure to get plenty of folate. http://ods.od.nih.go...thProfessional/

In Topic: Borderline Celiac?

I couldn't agree more with nvsmom. I think she's completely right about what the doc meant by "borderline." Hopefully, you've caught the illness early and have avoided a lot of issues. I hope you feel better soon! :)

Allergy-Free Alaska saved my hopes for the holidays. lol.

In Topic: Dh While Pregnant, None (Maybe) After?

26 November 2013 - 08:47 PM

I don't know how accurate that info. is that males get it more often. Maybe it's just that females are more apt to come onto a site like this but since I've been on here; I'd have to say the females outnumber the males 100 to 1. I know the "medical" texts say that about males. The medical texts also say it occurs on the elbows & knees & so forth but ask anyone here with dh & we can tell you it occurs any old where it wants to; in fact my elbows & knees were the last place it showed up on. Same goes for my hubs.

I can't really answer your question as I have never been pregnant but it is known that dh seems to be spurred by pregnancy ~~~ the hormones bouncing around I suppose.


Maybe it's a close call, so that the general population experiences one thing, while the reports are showing something else. Maybe I should have used the word "slightly," as one of the articles I read did say that it was only a little more prevalent in men. It also said that it can occur anywhere on the body, but that those are the most common locations.

Both my daughter and my son have complained of stomach problems, and it could be that my son has celiac. Funny enough, he doesn't seem to have had any rashes like that, but my daughter had a rash in her armpits that hung around for a while and nothing helped. Finally, it just went away. I only hope that neither of them experiences what I did, and that I never do again. I would totally lose my mind. I tried everything I could think to protect it and get it to heal. It hurt to touch to put anything on it. At the behest of my ex's grandmother, I tried Gold Bond Medicated powder and that was the worst idea, ever!
