Day 2 of gluten-free

A couple of weeks ago I received confirmation of what I had suspected for quite some time... I have celiac disease. Feeling that wheat doesn't digest well is different then knowing that it doesn't digest well. The formal confirmation is still sinking in... At first I was resistant and continued to eat wheat on occasion. I then became determined to give the gluten-free way of life a try in hopes that I would feel better. I then spent several days limiting my gluten intake all day to only cra

Steps for Recovery

This is a personal note to myself on things to remember next time and things to consider. If unsure of exposure take glidenX next few meals, blend and nima test samples of ingredients used to see if it was something you fixed. THOW AWAY that tooth brush....you brushed after getting glutened...your brush is contaminated.... MAKE SURE to add a extra 2 tsp of Liquid Health Energy& Stress and Neurological support between standard dosing, this will help with anxiety and suicidal th

July Update

SO it started off and has been very rough these past few weeks. I kept having issues finding a new car, found one much cheaper and I just have to wait 2 weeks for it. The Food Truck, working on getting a new LLC corporation filed for the truck then I can apply for offical financing. My initial inquires for financing were ignored or denied as the new venture did not have its own LLC and a bank account yet, and lending to a individual or a different business....well just looks bad on boo

Corn Conundrum

So I am allergic to corn...in a odd way. Corn starch, corn flour, corn syrup, corn oil will give me blood blister in my mouth and a 99-103F fever. Skin contact will cause a red sunburn looking rash that if not washed will start getting more like poison ivy.... Some derivatives from corn do not bother me, xylitol, erythritol, fibersol, etc. I used to think citric acid and xantham gum from corn were in this line up as they failed to give me the mouth blisters but apparently it has other effect

Olive Oil, Celiac, Sales, Life

Well I made a amazing discovery about my olive allergy....its not olives. I got some olive oil on 2 occasions in the past year, that upon putting it on my finger and licking it my mouth goes numb and my cheeks, tongue and throat swell followed by vomiting. I have had some vegan cheese, and some sauces with "olive oil" that doe not do this. I recently got some really high end olive oil with truffle oils in it.....no reaction, I can swish it even and NO reaction.....I think they are cutting

June Update

Few issues at the market with another baker showing trying to sell gluten free, she also does gluten foods in the same kitchen so I ended up in big debate. She has Made in a kitchen that handles gluten, wheat on all her stuff...but since she showed up my sales have dropped by half. Leading to even more stressful life. LOL my only purpose for living is cooking for others that require gluten free and helping out on this site.....like that is my primary drive in life aside from body building.

Gluten Free Tours in South Africa

Hi. I'm Celiac and ex-Forester and considering starting a touring company specialising in safe and fun travel for Celiacs. This would be exclusively in beautiful South Africa, Western Cape (home of  Cape Town, Table Mountain, big 5 game reserves, beautiful beaches, the garden route and so much more). I'm planning to open in about a year and just want to find out if there would be interested in such a concept as I am only in the research stage at this time? If you would be interested, please also

Why You Should Listen to Your Girlfriends (AKA “I Told You Something Was Wrong With Me”)

Why You Should Listen to Your Girlfriends (AKA “I Told You Something Was Wrong With Me”) Nearly five years of health-related nonsense left me depressed, anxious, over-tired, over-weight, and feeling defeated. Until I shared a glass (or two) with my girlfriends and they insisted that I not give up. I didn’t. And that’s how I finally found out what was actually wrong. It was one of those four thousand snowy days in New Jersey, where the kids were off from school for the second day in a r

    • Increased fasting numbers even in a low carb diet is common for a type 2 diabetic who is insulin resistant.   It is called Dawn Phenomenon.  If your post parandial numbers are over 200 or lower than 70 than you should consult a doctor to determine what kind of diabetic you might be.  You could be prediabetic eventually becoming insulin resistant and possibly developing TD2.  

      My neighbor recently had her pancreas removed due to cancer.  She must be on insulin and take enzymes to survive.  She instantly became a diabetic who MUST take insulin.  Your body needs glucose.  If you are Keto, it will still find a way to make glucose.  Too much protein and it turns to glucose.  

      The only way to determine if you are a TD1 or a TD2 is to get tested.  

      It sounds like your Ulcerative Colitis is flaring.

      If someone is diabetic they will need to take insulin in order to keep their blood sugar down. A high blood sugar level can cause damage to tissue and a wide variety of health problems. Nobody can live without insulin. 

      A doctor, if you have access to one, would be able to tell if you are prediabetic or recommend a treatment plan. 

      Yeah I did whole lot of research on it after this on the insulin and glucagon and how you can make glucagon the dominant hormone to have your body use fatty acids for fuel. BUT your liver will still be processing glycogen into glucose as a response to prevent glucose from tanking. All this time insulin is still needed for your bodies cells to utilize the glucose. 
      My pancreas we know is only getting 15% the nerve signals at the T7, I think it is just bogged down and I should keep to a prediabetic diet and taking enzymes to ease the burden on it. Maybe they can get better testing or a better treatment.

    I recently started a medication that's known to cause hypothyroidism, and in me, it has. As I increased the dose, my TSH went higher, in an almost lockstep fashion. On the most recent set of blood tests, after my TSH had gone over the threshold, my GP decided to chuck a coeliac test in there since hypothyroidism can be linked to coeliac disease, even though it seems pretty much certain the hypothyroidism is caused by the medication. So essentially this test result was something neither he n
    TDZ, that is interesting that you mention weed-eating as coinciding with the start of your husband's rash, as about 12 years ago I had a possibly similar experience.  It was in the spring (meaning late May here in SC Alaska), and I was cutting the lawn.  Rather than bagging up all the lawn clippings, I would just take the filled bag off the mower, walk into the woods behind the house, and pull out the clippings with my hand and then scatter them around (so that they didn't just all rot and feste

Right before the massive outbreak in November, there was a peppermint/chocolate-drizzled popcorn that I got at Walmart, and it gave both of us horrible diarrhea, and within a few days he was covered with more rash than ever before. Might have been unrelated, but it's the only unusual thing that times out right for any causality. Otherwise, he wasn't eating anything different. The first thing t
