Good News, Cooking, Holidays

So I finally made it to that specialist in the city, he straight up put me on 4x the standard UC medication and within a few days I am active again and able to leave my house. He stated the Silica I thought caused it would have softened and gelled in my intestines thus it probably only mildly irritated my intestines. But he said nonetheless it seems it flared my UC. So he said if I stick with...

Chicken Pizza Crust

Chicken Pizza Crust

So wanting a thicker sturdier crust and on a pizza craze I found, disliked and modified a recipe for making a low carb crust out of shredded chicken.

Then just top and heat up later. Makes 2x 8" Personal Crust 6oz  Cooked ...

Heck you can go carnivore with it and just sub the pork panko as I use the same grams of cheese vs Vegan Cheese. OH if you want...

Some drug companies have been telling people that some of the drugs that they manufacture contain gluten

There is an excellent Gluten Free Site entitled "glutenfreedrugs  Some drug companies have been telling people that some of the drugs that they manufacture contain gluten. When I investigated these claims, as many have, it appears that the reason they are blatantly claim that their drugs are contaminated is because they have used a sugar alcohol as an excipient. Sugar alcohols are not truly sugars ...

    • Doing the Lord's work here, posterboy. When I get my next vitamin checkup I'm going to come ask for you by name! 😂

      "Christ has no body but yours,
      No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
      Yours are the eyes with which he looks
      Compassion on this world,
      Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good,
      Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world.
      Yours are the hands, yours are the feet,
      Yours are the eyes, you are his body.
      Christ has no body now but yours,
      No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
      Yours are the eyes with which he looks
      compassion on this world.
      Christ has no body now on earth but yours."

      (St. Teresa of Ávila, 1515 – 1582)

      The headaches could be triggered by something in her diet besides gluten. Over time, celiacs commonly develop allergies/intolerances to other foods besides those containing gluten. This is because of damage to the mucosal lining of the small bowel which allows larger than normal protein fractions to cross into the blood stream. We call this "leaky gut syndrome."

      Do the headaches happen after every meal?

      Are the headaches migraine class?

      Have you noticed any patterns with the headaches in regard to certain meals or foods your daughter is eating?

      Does she generally eat the same things for say, breakfast or lunch? Keep in mind that allergic reactions can happen up to a day from the time the allergen was consumed. It would be good to keep a food diary until you discover potential triggers to avoid.

      I might suggest you try a bland, simple diet centered around fresh meat and vegetables. Have her try a "low histamine" diet. You can look that up for more particulars but it would include avoiding things that are canned, pickled or aged/fermented. Many fruits and especially dried ones are typically high in histamines. I am a migraine suffer so I am speaking from some experience. "Fresh" is a key word here because essentially all foods increase in histamine content over time.

      Has your daughter started taking any new vitamins/supplements/meds are started using shampoo or other topical beauty aids that might contain gluten? Some people are are really gluten sensitive and can get reactions transdermally.

      I agree. I have a bunch of auto immune diseases, (including Celiac and Type 1 Diabetes and Hashimotos and Reynauds and Sjogrens and NLD...) and recently learned I also have a mast cell activation syndrome with gi presentation. The mast cell episodes are usually triggered by histamines. The histamines in red wine, tomatoes and aged/jarred foods like roasted red peppers etc as well as dried fruits  would be triggers for my symptoms. Often symptoms from histamines would turn up between 3 and 4 am when histamine levels naturally rise during the night. ANYWAY, now that I am taking an antihistamine and some other mast cell stabilizing meds and avoiding the food triggers/(histamine rich food and drink) I am doing much better with these 4 am g.i. disasters. All this to say that you may want to take a look at histamine rich foods and see if they are symptom triggers. I had thought these symptoms I was having were because I was getting gluten-poisoned, but in fact my antibodies were perfect (b/c I am gluten-free!) despite ongoing episodes. It took months to figure out, but I am much healthier now that I avoid histamines. Hope you can figure out some triggers!
