Who Is Alfred?

Recommended Posts

Yikes, I was off the board for 10 minutes and came back to see a bunch of messages from "Alfred". I'm sure someone who is "in the know" knows what to do.


Liz

Started Specific Carbohydrate Diet on 8-16-09 because son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and want to give him moral support.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13

Alfred is someone advertising because this scam artist claims he can CURE Celiac disease by envisioning your intestines in his mind. and with in 5 days you'll be able to eat pizza, bread and all the food that makes you sick as a celiac.

It actually makes me mad that some crack pot is doing this.

Thanks Karen! NOW I see the button at the bottom that says, "Report" and now I know what it's for! I grew up in a strange religion that taught about "healing" like this and I feel like going ballistic when I see someone post something like this.

I just looked it up again to jog my memorey, he was shot several times and then his body was thrown into the river. The Queen Alexandria was soo convinced by Rasputin that if he was killed the family would lost the throne soon after. Which they did.

Alfred obviously has a vested interest in celiac disease ever since he burned the cakes....

not to go off subject, but you always throw out something that intrigues me.....tell us about the burned cakes...or at least what year and what were the circumstances and I go and look it up ...


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Off subject? I don't think that's possible in this thread.

oh those cakes.....well they deserved to be burnt, they were not gluten-free.

Do you think the poster using the name "Alfred" was a coincidence then?

I actually graduated from Alfred University, in where else - Alfred, NY.

What the folks in Western NY lack in imagination, they more than make up for in die-hard support of their beloved Buffalo Bills...True story - I have personally seen, way to up close and personal, a mullet dyed in team colors, accessorized with red white and blue face, and torso (among other things I'm sure). Somebody needs to wake up Alfred (the Great) and rally the troops!

I would dare say our visitoy of yesterday was no relation to "the Great"...

Back at the end of June we had terrible flooding up here (central upstate NY). My older daughter (the one on the far left) was looking out the window, watching the debris float by on the stream beside our house. She yelled come quick look! We all ran to see what she saw, including my 2 year old, who just so happened to be on the potty at the time. My wife came in late, saw what you see there and decided to preserve it for "posterity" so to speak...
