Kitchen and Life Upgrades

So I got a good deal at a restaurant auction for a prep center brand new at 1/30th retail. Seems the manufacturer of the custom unit forgot something looking at design notes....it was supposed to be modular to fit in a building. Well it is one solid 97"x48" stainless unit welded to a steel frame, which requires removing my door, removing the door frame, and using a engine hoist from the machine...

GI Report

So I had my follow up appointment with my new GI to go over my pathology report. There are no signs of celiac or UC, he said there were no medications he needed to prescribe and that my treatment regime was working great. He suggested my random digestive issues could be a new sensitivity or a intolerance or even hormone related like with insulin. He was quite surprised with the UC healing without...

The Scoop on Oats and Barely

The Scoop in Barley: Barley contains gluten and that is where some of us "get stuck". It is frequently used to make malt. That is why the normal beer is so bad for the celiac patient.  As a general rule you should avoid natural or mal flavorings a food has natural or malt flavorings in the ingredient list, contact the company so see if these flavourings cam from a non-gluten source.  How many t...

Alternative Business Ideas

So while I need an initial 30k to finance the food truck, then have heavy overhead, a very strict health inspector the has it out for food trucks keeping me from daily vending in town (next town over is nice), seasonal sales, and tons of permits and regulations. I was approached with a different concept by someone. A mobile video gaming trailer via a franchise what will provide support and booking...

New GI Doc

Well, I saw a new PCP about a month ago, completely useless, and then charged me a ridiculous co-pay I could not even afford (I got out of this on a technicality on their part). Anyway, he just heard my issues and got me an appointment with a GI doc. I saw the GI doc yesterday told him of my issues and the random daily cowpie like BMs on and off I have been having since a gluten exposure in August...

Frankenstein the brownie recipe

To Frankenstein, a dish in the name of experimenting is quite common with food. I recently did something with funny results and lessons learned I think some might find amusing. So my concept was to make a gluten-free soft moist brownie and sugar-free. I have done this with thick nut butter like sunbutter before, and iffy results with thinner ones. But I wanted something moister, so I had...

Caughing up blood?

Well, I had something really odd happen yesterday. I woke up took my meds, worked out, downed my green shot of powdered kale, moringa, and chlorella mix up. Then a few mins later felt dizzy and nauseated and felt the need to cough something up and up came a whole bunch of blood, slime like mucus, and some of the green liquid. Throat felt bad, and I found it burns when I take salty foods. Seems...

Simple Gut Easy Stewed Beef Base

Simple Gut Easy Stewed Beef Base

This is a good and simple meat dish, I came up with this variation as something with flavor but no harsh spices and easy on the gut. The benefits of Tumeric as an anti-inflammatory and lack of harsh peppers make along with the method of cooking the meat keeps it from becoming hard and chewy from fat seizing. 1lb 90%+ Lean Beef 1 Medium Onion chopped fine/minced 1 3/4 cup water 1-1 ...

    • 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!
