Celiac Disease, A Hidden Epidemic, By Green & Jones

Just saw this in the book club we belong to... looks like a possible buy........ has anyone read it, and do you think it's worth buying/the money?

Thanks, GC

Yummy Leftover Treat

We took leftovers and made a brand new favorite food... 1.5 cups cooked mashed potatoes, 1.5 cups cooked grits, 1 cup brown rice flour, 1 small -grated- onion, 2 eggs, salt/pepper... mix, shape into patties, and pan fry on both sides 'til golden brown. Yum yuuummmmm, good! Goes great with applesauce, eggs, sausage, and/or whatever you like for breakfast.

Who's Doing Blood Type Diet With Gf?

02 November 2005 - 11:38 AM

We had been doing Dr. D'Adamo's blood type diet before I figured out being a Celiac, and it has helped tremendously the healing process since going gluten-free August 1st. I'm really curious as to who else uses this [or similar] diet/lifestyle, and what positive things they've noticed.

What made me think of posting about it again, was fixin' scratch BBQ baked beans a couple nights ago. I used Navy beans, which are on the "avoid" list. I'm still trying to get rid of the gas and disruption to my digestive system... cramps, smelly stool, thinner/wetter stool, and of course; poorer assimilation.

If you haven't used this diet aid, have you heard of it, or thought of using it?

Gf, Healing, Immune Response

27 October 2005 - 09:17 AM

In a couple days, it'll be 3 months my being gluten-free. One of the things that really surprised me was; that my immune system and healing process jumped into 'hyper-activity'. I believe this happened because of my being sickly for decades, and being fairly close to my body shutting down. Even my hair and nails had almost stopped growing. That's when I knew there was 'real' trouble, they say even dead people's hair and nails grow for a short time!
:-)

Like most, I had no clue as what to expect when going gluten-free, and was amazed when my appetite kicked in like never before. At first, I assumed I should eat a balanced diet, not give in and over-eat. After thinking about it a few days, I figured I needed extra food to help heal the damage from Celiac... and to make a long story shorter, I ended up eating almost double the norm, and even eating stuff I knew wasn't the best food choices or a healthy amount to begin with. But, thinking my body was going through something it'd never gone through before, and not likely to do so again, I ate accordingly. Within weeks, my gum disease began reversing, my hair and nails began growing, and after roughly 10 weeks; I noticed my shoulders, wrists, legs and even my bum were filling out. Alot of this is not uncommon, but from what I've read, it does seem to have happened somewhat sooner than some people speak of. The point and question I have is; have any of you noticed, heard, of read of people having a quicker healing when these people are near death and/or sicker? This must happen kinda like what happens when people go through Kemo and radiation with cancer... which more than anything else; just kicks the body's rejuvenation process into 'high gear'. Also, for those without certain problems that wouldn't allow it, do you think it's a good idea for most going gluten-free, to start (I assume within about 1-2 weeks for most) eating some level of extra high quality food to take advantage of the body's propensity to engage the healing response at times of greater distress...when the body is most active in this regard?
