Rachel.

I started to work on something more private a couple of days ago. But then i had some other issues in my life that i had to work on, but now im going to go work on that project again lol.

I know for me, if i cant share stuff, i will explode. even yesterday something was going on with my life and i was like ughh what rachel recommend or april or everyone else in this thread. But of course the board was down, so i couldnt even post it if wanted to lol.

Paula...I felt the same way! I do need to share stuff and bounce it off of others....or just put it out there. Also, when I write about things it "sticks" with me.....so I'm actually able to retain alot of the scientificness much better if I've understood enough that I can write it out. If I write it down....I'm more likely to remember it.

I have a new focus....actually its an older focus (as in over 2,000 pages ago) that is now better understood. Its something for me to start on right now....before I get my genetic test results back. I also got my test results back from France. Anyone remember the urine I shipped off awhile back?? I had totally forgot about it!! :blink:

I was really wanting to write out my thoughts!!

Anyways, thanks for setting something up Paula! :)

I think it will be good for everyone. Right now I'm feeling as if I want the exact opposite of what I've been doing.....so a big change from putting it all out there for the whole world...to just sharing with a very small group that I know I can trust. It feels good to me. :)

I have to write things down to, i think it has to do with my photegenic memory. Of course it isnt as good as it was years ago. In college, i would be taking an test and i would be like hey the answer is on page ? and on the left or right side and id see the answer in my head. I can still do that from time to time but i need more time doing it lol.

Paula, I know exactly what you mean about the photogenic memory. I've read so many websites over the last few years but when I'm looking for certain info. I can picture the info....where it was written on the page and what the page looked like. That helps me find the page amongst hundreds of bookmarked sites. I can just "see" it in my mind. :)

Good thing for that or I'd never find anything!

Hello. :)

About three weeks ago I started the SCD, I am having real success with it.

The reason I started was that a friend, recently diagnosed with a wheat allergy, asked me for some recipes and I went to town with my amaranth, rice, tapioca, etc. flours and baked up all sorts of goodies, then I ate all sort of goodies :lol: Not really, but I did eat some every day for that week and by the end of it I felt like I was way back in my illness, it was really obvious that it was the grain, grain of any kind.

I knew that I just didn't want to know that.

At that point I had to admit that every time I felt better in the past three years it was when I grains free but I was also confused because sometimes I would feel bad but I hadn't eaten grains at all. :huh: Now I see a connection with the bananas I would eat, bananas that were still very starchy.

I could cry now just out of gratitude to have found this diet, I can eat again and enjoy eating, I have made bread that is not only edible but delicious, Sandwiches! Home made goat yogurt cream cheese with tomatoes and avocados..... and you can make yogurt with heavy cream so that you can whip it just like whip cream except it will have tartness to it.

So yesterday I went and bought the second Grain Free Gourmet cookbook by Jenny and Jodi and I am reading along and I read that the basics of the SCD were used in the early part of the twentieth century to treat celiac. Dr.Haas developed the Original SCD and over 98% of the children treated by him for celiac (561) showed a positive response and many recovered, as in they went on to eat wheat.

In the early 1950's a theory was proposed, based on the flour shortages of the second world war and improvements seen in those with celiac, that gluten and only gluten was the culprit and from that point on the medical profession embraced that theory. What this means is that people get better but don't completely heal and so are always vulnerable to relapses.

There is lots more but I trust if you find this interesting you will investigate yourself.

I have known most of my life that wheat was just not good for me and I am not looking for a way to live that includes it but I realize now that I am no longer willing to accept the conventional view of celiac.

I am going to recover. B)

:wub:

Well, I just read back and gather that everyone has departed, :huh::lol:

Perhaps it is only natural that this thread winds down, perhaps for a while, perhaps for longer, certainly I haven't been here to do my part. :ph34r:

I am so grateful, I don't know if you really understand how deeply I feel you have been part of my healing and I am healing. We made a circle here and the love, humor and support we have shared has been a blessing.

Thanks to all but most especially to you Rachel, there never would have been a Rachelville without you!!!

:wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub:
