Thoughts for june

So considering a icecream machine for setting up at the market for awhile and doing catering, I tried a softserve machine and fell in love with the idea. But now after failing to raise the money for it and considering more issues with pros and cons I am opting to something a tad different. Biggest issues with the soft serve machine, the freezing cylinder has to have mix it to run properly, which leads to waste. And second it it limited to 1 flavor at a time in large batches at that. The benefits

Whos Afraid of a B Vitamin You needn’t Bee? An FAQs on Niacin(amide) and how to take Niacinamide and why you would want too in the first place. The very definition of a Vitamin is a Vital (life giving) nutrient needed in a minimum amount without which we become sick.  This is especially so for B Vitamins since the body does not have good way to store more than 3 months’ worth on average.

Is Breyers Italian Gelato Ice Cream Gluten Free?

I e-mailed Breyers Ice Cream Consumer Service Department last week to ask if their very decadent and delicious Italian Gelato (ice cream) was gluten free. It is more expensive, definitely creamier, contains more calories which I need, but Oh so good! I received a very nice e-mail from them two days later: "New Productions of Breyers Ice Cream will have a gluten-free symbol on the box. Breyers also has a gluten-free program which includes the segregation of gluten containing ingredients, spe

Paleo/Ketogenic diet

Since my updated diagnosis, I have pretty much stopped all fruit, lowered my starchy veggie intake, and moved to a ketogenic diet. I am going in and out of it, finding getting a glucose monitor and checking my sugars helps a bit with understanding my moods a bit more and what to eat for snacks.   The ketosis thing is causing some odd issues, constipation, lower magnesium and calcium levels, needing to drink more liquid, Leg cramps in the mornings.

celiac disease "Kait"

My daughter was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease.  She is only 12 yrs. old, so you can imagine how hard this has been for her.  This is new for all of us as well.  My question to anyone:  Is it normal to have discomfort in the stomach after you change diet?  It has been over a week now and stomach still hurts.  Does it take time for the body to get use to new diet change?  Thank you.

Finally Expanding gluten-free Bakery with a mobile kitchen/trailer

I have for a long time considered expanding my gluten-free bakery from a cottage home bakery to one where I can sell my snacks, baked goods, and almond butter at other venues and start shipping orders. Pretty much everything is in place aside from having a separate cooking area from my huge home kitchen to make the stuff in. And Finally I worked it out, comes out much cheaper and I found a brand new trailer with a full kitchen set up and concession selling window for under $15k locally. I just n

Thoughts on a Star Trek Episode

As a adult I have started re watching all the Star Trek Episodes, Most from the Original, TNG, DS9 episodes all cover interesting issues and different takes on issues with humanity from a different point of view and perspective. I have found this to be very intriguing to say the least. Anyway I finally got around to re watching the original and am on the second season. I found something interesting with the tribbles episode.

    • I feel sorry for your daughter!  Every new symptom needs to be documented, either by you or your daughter. When you have celiac disease for as long as I have, you find all sorts of rashes and headaches and abdominal pains that you never had before.  We are not doctors, and neither are you, but it would help your daughter if you could read up on celiac disease as much as possible.  Unfortunately, it is a connective tissue disease, which as such can mimic other connective tissue diseases.  I would ask you if you have tried any milk other than dairy, like coconut milk or some of the other great milks they have now... just to see if she has an allergy to dairy.  This is only a possibility, but worth trying since you have to pay to see a specialist.  Scott Adams, our Editor has so much research on file regarding celiac disease and its favorite connective tissue disease. You will read up about dairy allergies, and also about thyroid disease, because these two seem to "pop" up time and time again with celiac disease.  There are so many things to cause headaches, such as needing glasses.  Of course then you say,  "But she only has headaches when she eats". Can you possibly keep a diary as to what she has eaten that day...in order to eliminate other foods she may be allergic to.  So many questions;- "Has she been sleeping on a different pillow, like a feather pillow, have you bought a new family pet, especially a cat with the dander from its fur. Is there a trigger point when the headaches strike.  I get headaches when I have been glutened, but I have had celiac disease for so long I can almost tell what has attacked me, or made me go on the hunt for the culprit.  If you have medical coverage it might be worth while getting a referral naturopath or a specialist. Many people who have celiac disease also find they are allergic to cows milk and even cheese.  You could go on line to the University of Chicago, Celiac Disease Centre and ask one of the research team there if they have some suggestions. Sadly, they have restricted joining their newsletter to the medical facility, and even checked my background prior to admitting me. If you know someone who is a nurse, you could possibly get them to help you, or last choice, go on the internet and ask the question.  They come up with lots of suggestions, but primarily they will mention dairy allergy right along with dust mites and the Spring allergy season we are in right now.


    • Blue Sky,

      I thought you enjoy the new research I found recently on how nutrient (deficiencies) can regulate our Tight Junctions (TJ) leading to Leaky Gut in time.

      Entitled "Regulation of the intestinal barrier by nutrients: The role of tight junctions"

      https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/asj.13357

      I hope this is helpful but it is not medical advice.
