For A Seattle Celiac

Hello to each and every one of you who gave me so much comfort during this journey. I have found out that I was misdiagnosed with celiac disease, via a genetic test and a doctor (my 6th) with a messianic complex. After being gluten-free for nearly a year, I was still getting sick, and finally sought help from my 7th, and hopefully last doctor. She sat with all of my test results from the past year, put me on a cleansing fast, ran some tests and found out that my problems were related to my adrenals. 6 weeks out and I am finally starting to feel better. In any case, in my desire to embrace this change in my life, I bought a lot of books. I would like to give them to someone in the Seattle area that will use them. Some are cookbooks, some are just about the disease. I also have some unopened flours, mixes, etc, that are all perfectly good, less than 2 months old, and we all know how expensive that stuff is.

If someone will contact me, I will be happy to drop them off, or if anyone has any suggestions for what I can do with them other than post them on Craigslist.

I live in North Seattle.

May God bless all of you with restored health and happiness, you all deserve it.

Best,

Karen Fredericks

Hi Karen,

I'm so glad you found out what really going on with your body. It can be a confusing and long journey. I live in the area and have two celiac children, girls, and then myself. I would love to have some of your books and other things. I would even be willing to pay something for them. I was diagnosed 8 months ago and then tested my two girls, one being 22 months and the other 11 years old. It is very expensive to feed our family and so I haven't boughten any cook books yet, I just refer to this site.

I would be happy to meet you somewhere. I live in the Millcreek area so I am further North than you are. Thanks for the wonderful offer.

Blessings,

Leslie

P.S. My naturopath tested my adrenals and they are very low as well. She has me on high C, B5, B12 shots, progesterone, DHEA and B complex. May I ask what you are doing to get your adrenal function back up? Thanks!
