The little darlings are 22 and 18...time to move out and save the gluten-free food for DAD:)

22 and 18.....my oh my, you must have been a very bad ten year old. :o

H-ll's Bells, that's a no-brainer: they should only be allowed to live in your house if they are gluten-free!

It is YOUR house--you and your wife get to set the rules.

On the weekend mornings, I get up early and go have a cup of coffee with my mom. She always keeps nice loaves of 12 grain bread etc...

This weekend I can't tell you how much I was lusting over a piece of toast. I REALLY REALLY wanted one..... I haven't dreamt about bread yet....... :huh:

14 months gluten-free and then wham!

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...and from what I've read, it may or may not get better with time.

:(

My husband is the BOSS and makes all the IMPORTANT decisions ... but in 22 years of marriage, there hasn't been one yet! :lol:

Dear DarlinDeb,

Yep, I have had dreams like that too! I have food lust issues, but am paranoid careful about gluten! Even so, due to living with 2 non-gluten free individuals, cc is a big problem which I pay dearly for. I also have to watch my fat intake, which has been difficult on the gluten free diet, as some of the gluten free breads have 6 grams of fat, some 9 grams of fat per slice. :o All of the low-fat stuff I used to eat was grain, and most of the low-fat gluten free stuff there is I cannot afford! So, I have to make things myself. Although, the list of safe foods I have has been great. The cereals and stuff is safe. They are low in fat. Lately though, I have lost control and wolfed down way too many Tostitos!

I pay the price, too because they are not baked. I should get some baked ones next time.

I have had dreams like that where I am eating cupcakes with a ton of icing! Spaghetti in ragu sauce with big meatballs, cheez-its, and all kinds of other things! I woke up freaked out too, until I realized that I did not actually eat them! It was great though! I did not get sick from eating it, and I did not get fat either! :lol:

Dear gfp,

House--gotta love him! If I were a doctor, I probably would be like either Cristina on Grey's Anatomy, or a female version of Becker. Really, many doctors I have had did not have good people skills. They were rude, snobbish, and complete idiots. They were also microfocused and always convinced that they were right. I am a people person as long as it does not involve my family.

This microfocusing, as you pointed out, is only going to hinder progress. Solutions cannot be found when you refuse to look at them from other perspectives. Ignoring small things can end up causing big problems. If people do not start putting their differences aside for the greater good, the medical community shall continue to suck and only go downhill. Of course, these morons in labcoats are too busy having tunnel vision to notice or care about what any of us have to say!

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

P.S. That is why Alzheimer's is such a problem. Mercury poisoning and aluminum poisoning are common contributers. Most dentists and other MDs refuse to believe that this could be its cause or add to it. A wonderful book to read is "Beating Alzheimer's" by Tom Warren. This guy had actual brain atrophies, and reversed them. He had food allergies, an overgrowth of yeast, mercury poisoning, and various other things that resulted in the cerebral death sentence known as Alzheimer's. "It's All in Your Head" is another good book by Dr. Hal Huggins who explains the dangers of dental materials and their impact on your health.

NoGluGirl,

Thanks very much for the recipe :) It will get a lot of use!

:)

Dear Abug,

You are so welcome! Deprivation is not a part of my vocabulary! I could live off of Chinese food! Most people think I am Asian, but we are supposed to only be Irish, English and Scottish. I think somebody slept with somebody. White folks don't look like this! It would be fun to get DNA testing to see.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

I'll look into the book but you should read the papers on "The Gluten File" ... I agree microfocussing can be bad but its all about how its done.

Dr. H's papers are written openly.... he and his cowriters link to stuff and say we don't understand the link and its not our speciality BUT its there...... in this case you can't have a neurologist making expert assesments of other fields but he can and does bring it up. IMHO there are two sides to "micro-focussing" and its a double edged sword but to get REAL experts you must microfocus... Newton said it best and I parphrase from memory "If I have achived greatness it is by standing on the shoulders of giants". All science today is so complex you must rely on other experts outside your field... in my field (Geology) a Vulcanologist who is predicting a eruption must rely on the data from a geophysicist...

This is an excellent example of the scientific method...

Summary for those not wanting to read...

In 1912, Scientist Alfred Wegener introduced his Theory of Continental Drift, which sought to explain this similarity. Alfred Wegener's one of the individuals, who in the Twentieth Century has had a major influence on geological thought. He observed like several before him the geographic relationship along the Atlantic Ocean, and that the obvious match between, particularly, the African and South American continent. This led him to conclude that the surface of the Earth, that the continents were not stable but, in fact, mobile and led to his idea of drifting continents. At the time it was not accepted; it was not well accepted in either geological or other scientific thought but ultimately became the foundation for what was a real revolution in geology.

The model that we now call sea floor spreading was first proposed by Harry Hess in 1963. Hess had been a ship commander during World War II and had access to an echo sounder, which he kept turned on all the time in the hopes that he'd be able to use the data to understand about the Earth. Hess was a trained geologist.

In 1963, Hess wrote a paper published in the Scientific Journal, which he called an "Essay in Geopoetry." It's an interesting title, "Essay in Geopoetry." See, in order for there to be Science, there has to be evidence, and Hess virtually had no evidence for his theory. The only evidence he really had was the age of the sea floor rocks, the youngest, 200 million years old, virtually no other evidence.

In the 1960s Vine and Matthews discovered magnetic stripes on the sea floor. Now, these strips aren't really stripes. It's not like they're painted on the ocean floor, but by the 1960s it was accepted that the Earth's magnetic field periodically reverses itself.

Vine and Matthews made a connection with sea floor spreading. The connection is a very simple one that they predicted that these magnetic stripes ought to be symmetrical with the ridge.

Once the theory of sea floor spreading began to make sense, other methods of studying the Earth, including gravity and earthquake studies, and heat flow, and radioactive dating, and various other aspects began to put together this model of plate tectonics, and today we're able to calculate fairly accurately using the magnetic reversals, the rate of sea floor spreading, and we find that in the Atlantic Ocean the rates are from one to four centimeters per year and in the Pacific Ocean from three to ten centimeters per year. Just a sense of how long or how slow this process really is, I mentioned in a previous lesson how fast your fingernails grow.

This is exactly what SHOULD be happening with celiac disease....

You still need experts in different fields.... much of what I learned on celiac disease involves some complex chemistry most MD's wouldn't even begin to understand... but certain specialist do like Dr. H....

The mechanism for instance of ion channels which pass large molecules (like gluten) across supposedly impermeable barriers...

because there is no such thing as absolute permeability... only relative...

MD's tend to focus on definitions ... the whole definition of celiac disease is laughable because its woefully incomplete ... celiac disease doesn't scientifically exist by the definition just as the shape of Arfica and S. America doesn't prove anything...but coincidence BUT its still true, we just can't say how... why....

This is where the proof comes in and the proof is almost always from specialists who micro focus...

Vine and Hess were geophysicists there knowledge of geology was sketchy at best... sure they had undergrad degrees but that means jack in geology... published research is all that counts.

BUT their speciality and their ability to understand geophysics brought together all the theories and opened the floodgates to plate tectonics. Most geologists I know can't do the math for plate tectonics... but the evidence is irrefutable ... not simply from thier measurements but because thier proof opened the floodgates to hundreds of other techniques from paleo-botany to basin evolution (my speciality)...
