Welcome to the board! If you have a minute search for Nini (a poster on the board) as she has a "newbie" packet on her site.


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

Welcome Southern Girl. :)

I am about as white as they come, but I just read about some fabulous hair and skin softeners and products mainly geared toward African Americans, and the raves were so great (from Oprah, etc.), that I ordered some. The company is called Carol's Daughter (www.carolsdaughter.com) and the creator of the products uses all-natural oils and ingredients, without any gluten as far as I an discern. I am expecting my products any day, for hair and skin, can't wait. Check it out!

Bare Minerals is largely gluten-free (some of their glosses / lipsticks aren't, though), and works very well for darker complexions; my best friend is dark chocolate and when she wears it you can't tell that she's not bare - skinned! Same for me... I use the tan collection myself.

Pantene also has a product line for black hair.

Do you just need information on just makeup or on skincare as well?


Gluten-free since 10/05 - Positive dietary response with Doctor's validation! - Debilitating migraines, constant dizziness and lightheadedness gone; anxiety & panic attacks, depression, agoraphobia and extreme exhaustion considerably lessoned

Dairy/Casein Intolerant

Soy, Cabbage, Sugar, Peanut, Shellfish, Caffeine, Egg, Potato and Tomato allergies / intolerances

Sporadic reactions to: Poultry

Avoiding all preservatives and additives

Also Multiple Chemical/Environmental Sensitivities

Pulmonary Embolism - 1999
